Elementary School Stalled By ROSS GIBB Herald News Service TABER - No progress was reported on the new Central elementary school project at the July meeting of Taber school division's board of trustees. Lack of progress was due, in part at least, to the misplac-ment of a document in the Sam Steele Days Open August 13 CRANBROOK (Special) -Fifth annual Sam Steele Days are scheduled Thursday August 13 through Sunday, August 16, with Don Lockyear at the helm for the second year. This is Cranbrook's annual wing-ding named for the commanding officer of the North West Mounted Police contingent sent to Wild Horse in 1887 to simmer down a potential settler-Indian conflict, establishing Fort Steele. Celebration centres in Cran-brook however, though it will conclude on the Sunday with a genuine gold panning excursion over the last mile of the Dewd-ney Trail from Fort Steele to Wild Horse where you can pan all the gold you can find, under Historical Association auspices. That day you can also raft race down the Kootenay from Wasa, 10 miles to Fort Setele under auspices of SW Kootenay management, operators of the peripatetic Stern Wheeler Kootenay who has recently transferred from Bummers Flats down to a Fort-Steele landing (old Galbraith Ferry terminal) on Westport side of the river. The Days are a Cranbrook' community effort, however, with steadily rising participation up to some 15,000 people last year. Something for everybody appears the objective for 1970 to stem from the Sam Steele Trailer at Tenth Avenue and First Street South just in- i side Rotary Park. Major opening day event is> the evening Sam Steele Sweet- j heart pageant at the Armond with contestants Gayle Bain, i Barbara Boychuck, Marnie I Larsen, Carol Ann McCuiag, Sherry Purdy, Christine Rouns-ville and Debbie Scott. Cranbrook Royals (Hockey) Boosters are sponsors, with Mother Henship of Mrs. Reuben Penner. Winner takes over from Judy Hannemayer as Cranb rook Sweetheart delegate for the year. Major event Friday is the VIP dinner at the Legion Hall sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce with special guests associated with the 1970 theme of woods industry. This event will lead into the Sam Steele Sweetheart Ball, sponsored by the Junior Chamber at the Eagle Hall. Major Saturday event will be the 11 a.m. parade, with six bands assured and top float entries, and possibly the Calgary Police School Patrol participating. Evening program major event is the Scandinavian Brotherhood barbecue at the Bluebird drifting into their dance. This will run along with the annual evening fireworks and midnight draws for the Kinsman car and the Eagles boat at trailer headquarters. Events for juniors include four-day West Coast carnival at the city-owned Bishop Boyle property, a Friday two-mile bicycle race from Confederation Park to Mount Baker School in two age classes, and there will be a costume children's parade downtown the opening morning, and teen-age indoor and outdoor dancing all evenings. Old-time fiddler, woods skills, soccer, square-dancing, beard growing contests, and arts and crafts displays throughout the four days at scattered location, stock car racing and two-day rodeo are also listed for the wing-ding. files of the department of education, Edmonton. About two months previous, the division filed with the department a statement of need, second in as many years, for the replacement of the 60-year-old school structure. No response from the department prompted the division to follow up on the request for building approval, learning later that the statement had been filed before being submitted for approval. The usual time will now be required for government process oE the recommendation which would see the old brick edifice demolished in favor of a modern school building for the elementary grades. The board referred for committee consideration and recommendation, offers from four architectural engineering firms to provide plans for the new school. With no immediate action on the new school contemplated, the board agreed to retain ownership of five teacherages on the Central School block until next summer when they will be offered for sale by tender. However, offers to purchase any or all of the buildings will be considered by the board at any time, appraisals for a reasonable price having now been received. Similarly, no immediate action toward the acquisition of two privately owned properties on the school block is indicated, b u t negotiations are e x p e c ted to commence once the statement of need has been approved by the department and,the green light flashed for the initiation of procedures leading to the new school construction.

Telephone Company Ltd. plant started in June, when Muriel Reade turned the sod, will continue immediately by Vancouver contractors Smith Brothers and Wilson Ltd. Location is at the northwest corner of 12th Avenue and South First Street, across the lane from its present location. Building contract is approximately $600,000 and remaining budget is for installation of switchboard facilities to transfer from present inadequate quarters. Miss Reade superannuated as chief of the 90 operators employed regularly, after 17 years Cranbrook service stalling with Kootenay Telephone Lines which served some 400 subscribers in Cranbrook, Fernie and Creston with about five operators. This became Kootenay Telephone Ltd., and in 1954 East Kootenay division of B.C. Telephone Ltd. The service now handles 9,000 calls daily. The new expandable building will be two stories on 105 feet frontage, with off-street parking for 20 vehicles, and the city will have a 20-foot lane access off 12th Avenue to the rear of the premises. The two buildings will be linked by underground crawl space for cable maintenance between them, but the lane between 11th and 12th Avenues will be unaltered. Technical installations will advance another step toward direct distance dialing in East Kootenay by 1973. Construction schedule calls for occupation of the new building by January 1, 1971 while the additional 90 employees including district and local executive level, commercial staff and plant employees will continue headquarters in the 11th Avenue building. Norm Wilson, named district manager in 1968, continues in this office. ried with water and disposed i with waste water through the sewage system to the river. The carbonated lime waste carrying solids amounting to about 100 tons at Picture Butte and 160 tons at Taber daily, bears considerable organic matter from beet juice purifica-Lion processes which requires oxygen from the river for its decomposition. This product will now be handled in a comparatively dry form, being pumped into transmission piping and blown with air pressure to the disposal ponds, � located on company property at both plants. At Taber, the 2,000 foot long, eight inch pipe, will be carried atop.40-foot poles, to clear several railway tracks, enroute to the open reservoir east of the beet storage grounds. In a recent statement, Company Manager Dwight W. Purdy said that over the past 20 years, Canadian Sugar Factories Ltd. through expenditures of well over a million dollars, has on its own initiative reduced B.O.D. (biochemical oxygen demand) potency of the effluents from the plants by some 70 per cent. He said that in view of the increasing load being placed on the river from all sources, and the reduction of river flow permitted by upstream dams, his company has already embarked on a program to provide a further reduction of 60 per cent on the present B.O.D. of the waste waters. The first stage of the program, which will cost, several hundred thousand dollars, is now under way. The second stage, to be implemented next year, will involve the fine-screening of all waste waters leaving the plants for the removal of bits of vegetable matter in suspension which are also B.O.D. pollutants. In his recently released statement, Mr. Purdy noted that beet sugar factory waste waters are not nearly as objectionable from the river's point of view as the sewage from a city, as the factory effluents do not carry the hazardous bacteria of domestic sewage or the oil, caustic, or animal refuse discharged by some other industries into city sewage systems. He added that the fall operation of the factories does not interfere with recreational periods and occurs before heavy ice formation which results in a shortage of oxygen in the river. Building Continues CRANBROOK (Special) - Lockout strike situation in construction through June didn't hamper Cranbrook building permit tally much. Inspector John Davis reports 20 permits issued to an estimated value of $197,100, with 13 of these new housing units. Most housing construction contracting is not under union jurisdiction. The tally brought to $2,578,500 estimated value for the city's new building so far this year, of which 104 permits were for housing starts. Tally for the period last year was $2,792,150, July permits did not include the new $600,000 telephone company addition, nor a second major commercial building on the same scale for which permit application is expected in August.

The float carried out the campfire theme and their jubilee year decorations 94 In Attendance Barr Family Unites FORT MACLEOD (Special)-The original homestead of pioneers Delmer and Ellen Barr, was the location chosen by their descendants for a recent reunion. The farm, located in the Ar-denville district south of Fort Macleod, now is being farmed by their grandson, Lloyd Ban-, and before that by his father, Victor. Delmer Barr died in 1916, leaving his widow and 12 children. Being a true pioneer, she, with hired help, managed the farm and raised her family. She also maintained the post office at Ardenville. When the eldest, Victor, married she moved to town with the other children. The nine surviving Barr children, with their husbands, wives, grandchildren and great grandchildren, were present for the reunion. There are, besides the sons and daughters, 25 grandchildren, 73 great grandchildren and three great great grandchildren. There were 94 together for the two-day reunion. The families congregated on the farm with tents pitched, travel trailers set up and canvass shelters installed. They came from Sidney, Kimberley, and Vancouver in British Columbia, Great Falls. Montana and from Coaldale, Edmonton, Claresholm, Pincher Creek and Fort Macleod in Alberta. ' The last reunion was in 1961, going ahead despite the death of Mrs. Barr. At that time 115 were present and since then there have been three deaths and several births in the family, the newest born hours after the reunion to Mr. and Mrs. Frank Duchannc. Sons and daughters are Victor and Glen of Fort Macleod, Mrs. Bertha Cofell, Mrs. Edith Driver, Mrs. Anna Davis, Mrs. Kathleen Townsend, Mrs. Pat Schnarr of Fort Macleod, Mrs. George Stockton of West Vancouver and Mrs. Arthur Kyllo of Pincher Creek.
