Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 9, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 36 -THE IETHBRID CE liESAlO Wctlncidov, Autimi 9, Sfc VALUABLE DIG Paul Blackwell, a Simon Froser University nrchaeological student, sits in ono of the pits which hcivr- yielded remains of an Indian hunling camp Ihoughl to hp about years old. A team of nine SFU iludenls. wcrHnq under o for Youth grnrt, have also uncovered icvera! thousand other artifacts a' the silo neor Honey in the Fraser Valley.____ with Tiv CAROI, KENXKDV LONDON (CP) Is a cour.try "entirely happy'' 'n Its name, rays the aullwr oE a widely-rcsoarched book on the origins and influence of place-names around the ling- lish-speakinR world. Mrs. C. M. Matthews, a New Zealand-bom scholar and local historian v.lm has spent a lifetime fascinated liy the nature of words, says Hie choice of this native name, originally applied to one of three Indian lands but used by both French and English set- tlers from the beginning, was "acceptable to all.'1 Although the origin of the word has sparked several theories, the most likely iiource the Algonquian meaning huts, -Mrs. Matthews says its actual in- terpretation is less important than the historical associa- tions It lias gathered since. "Canada row truly belongs to the country that it names, and has grown in meaning as It has swelled in size.71 Mrs. Matthews, the wife of schoolmaster, devotes a chapter to Canada in her book. Place Names of the English- Speaking World, published here by Weidcnfeld and Mcol- son. She sees Canadian place- names as more spontaneous and rooted in nature than those of the United States and likes their descriptive im- agery in bolh English ar.d French. OLDEST NAME Such names as Swift Cur- rent, Maple Smoky Like, Ked Deer and Fort Qu'Appellewhich guarded a rocky, echoing rlofiic us the country as U really says the New f-llie notes that Mor.t Tioyal, later transmuted to Montreal, is Ihc oldest recorded plvc-name on the North American mainland north of Mexico.

Where narnes w-'re im- ported direct from Hie home- land, Mrs. .Matthews suggests the most were those of Frnall, comrrjiinilkf, such as f'algary on the Scritiis'n of '.lull, which on ri 'tature prominent enough to be In- cluded in the entries of the Times world atlas. NEW NAMES DULLER She regrets the frequent name-changes undergone in the sweep of Canadian his- tory, which slio feels often swapped n. pithy original for something Acadie for Nova Scotia, Itupertsland lor the North West Territory. For 40 years, she recalls, the name Fort Garry "epito- mized the most romantic ele- ments of the West." But in the 1360s a fashion for Indian names and an expanding city administration chose instead Winnipeg, the name of a nearby lake meaning "muddy water." "There Is nothing against Winnipeg as a name, but it al- ready existed on a lake and a river; Fort Garry, which had survived a tough periixl and grown colorful in the process, deserved to go on to city hon- ors and not be relegated to a suburban position." Another change she regrets, this time from French to Eng- lish, is the switch from Fort F r o n t e n a c to the present Kingston. Ont. are many Kings- tons, and Frontenac would have been she com- ments.
