Cemetery At Retlaw Improved EETLAW (Special) Dur- ng the winter and spring months of tills year three wom- n Mrs. LUI Odden, Mrs. Hannah Smith and Leona Nor- ian decided that something hould be done to improve the letlaw cemetery. The first per- son laid to rest in this ceme- ery was in the year 1916. They contacted the Taber nunicipality and obtained a lap showing the blocks and ots of the graves. Then they ontacted the families of those nterred in the cemetery with ie view of having them pur- hase permanent grave mark- rs. During June a working bee 'as held with interested per- ons from surrounding districts nd as far away as Lethbridge and Pincher Creek assisting. Temporary markers were laced on the graves and Ber- ard Slauth and his son Bobby evelled the graves and filled holes. Supply Low BLAiRMORE (CNP Bureau) A long, hot, dry summer has lowered the water in the Blair- more dam considerably and ac- cording to town foreman John Gibos the water has never been lower at this time of year. Mr. Gibos reports that two large sloughs on the road to the Blairmore dam are com- pletely dried up which is some- thing he has never seen in all his years with the town. Mr. Gibos stated that should the hot, dry weather continue for another week the town will cut the water pressure from 90 pounds to 40 pounds in order to conserve water. Although there is no thought of rationing water, local con- sumers are cretion. urged lo use dis- From Fernie To West Coast CKANBKOOK (.Special) Resolutions of other regional districts for which support of the Kcgional District of Kast Kootcnay was asked, have been1 set aside by the RDEK for now. The board of directors, at its August meeting, was asked by the Regional District of Koole- nay Boundary to endorse the action of the City of Trail in condemning the proposal of the Burlington Northern and Koote- nay and Elk Railway to pro- vide an alternate rail route to Roberts Bank from ths Fernie coal area. Several directors expressed the view that an alternate route for the coal may be de- sirable, even necessary, as ton- nages increase. Contracts are based on uninterrupted flow of coal, said Mayor R. Lenardon of Fernie, and he added that such a railway' might expedite the development of American markets for the coal. One resolution, from the Thompson-Nicola Regional Dis- trict, asks for amendment of the Land Registry Act to re- quire a subdivider to prove that a supply of potable water, suf- ficient for normal domestic use, would be available on any par- cel of land of less than five acres that lie might sell. Consensus was that the old precept of caveat einptor or "buyer beware" should apply, as much for practical reasons as anything. The TNRD also asked sup- port for a resolution that muni- cipal secretary-treasurers be allowed to require five per cent of gross land to be subdivided or five (-'cut of the .''vl value of the total land lo subdivided, if less than Iwn acres, for development of parks. KDEK directors were not sure that they agreed with the precept that would require buy- ers of subdivided land to, in ef- fect, pay for the land for their parks instead of the general municipal population. They decided to wait for the annual meeting of the Union of B.C. Municipalities to decide whether to give their support to the tiiree resolutions. BLAiRMORE (CNP Bureau) [three hours.
