The Indian children were brought to town by the Peigan Co-op bus every morning for the swimming held from 9 a.m. to 12 noon.

Life Centre Seeks More Participants PINCHER CREEK (Special) The Family Life Centre of Pincher Creek is still accepting applications for several "Basic Encounter" Groups to begin here in September. Each group is made up of about 10 persons (Grade 12 and up) meeting for two hour's weekly for a minimum of six weeks. The group experience, quite different from a "discus- sion" group, focuses on the in- terpersonal relationships which take place among tlie mem- bers. This provides a setting for learning and enhancing the basic skills needed for more meaningful and deeper rela- tionships in daily living. This will be the second year that tlie Fanu'ly Life Centre is offering the Basic Encounter Group experiences. Trainer will again be David Hembh'ng, director and counselor here in Pincher Creek. So far, there are 14 applica- tions with a few more women than men. This experience is phone 627-4022, or drop in at the office on the lower floor of the M.D. building. and will contact (lie depart- ment to further discuss tlie matter. The town is taking steps ti annex one block of land in the northeast section of town along Highway 3 which would be des ignated for commercial pur poses. The secretary was instruct ed to make enquiries as to the present whereabouts of the ra dar unit that was purchasec jointly by the towns of Cole- man, Blairmore and Bellevue several years ago for use by local police. J. Burger of tlie Chinook Health Unit is to be advisee that consideration is being given to the town instituting a modified landfill type of refuse disposal system. The secretary will write to Ihe Coleman Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion enquir- ing if they desire a section set aside in the town's cemeteries for a "Field of Honor." The local Forest Wardens tvere given permission to erect :otem poles near the Coleman Mcns Club Piggy Bank and near the east entrance to the .own. Tenders have been called for the town apart- ment over the town offices. Tenders must be sent in to tlie secretary by Aug. 25. 'Complaints have been re- ceived that local residents haul- ng refuse to the town's nui- sance grounds have been dumping the garbage in piles n various spots on the grounds and not over the edge of the lump area. This practise lauscs problems for others wishing to dump the garbage ver the edge. Persons using he nuisance grounds are urged o put their refuse over the edge or as near to the edge of he dump area as possible. Retailers Seek Late Shopping TABER (HNS) Tabor's second annual potato festival and night shopping on a year- round basis were prime topics discussed at a recent meeting of the Taber Retail Merchants Association. Members agreed to request the town council for amend- ments to the business closing bylaw extending the hours of shopping to 9 p.m. each Satur- day night for the entire year. Delegated to present the pro- poal to council Monday were RMA president Harden Atkin, Roy How and Kenneth Parker. More active participation by the merchants to create a car- nival atmosphere in promo- tion such as last year's potato festival was _ most practical means of busi- ness promotion, on which Mr. Atkin advised that the festival would be the main topic for dis- cussion at the next RMA meel- ing. A representative of a Leth- bridge television station was at the meeting on invitation, dis- cussing means of promoting the town as a whole as a shopping centre, but no positive action was taken. It was also agreed that the matter of moving the cenolaph from the uptown park to Con- federation Park be discussed with Jay Edwards, president of the Taber Branch, Royal Cana- dian Legion. Saturday, Auguil 22, 1970 THE IETH8RIDGE HERAID 3 Joining Of School Districts To Be Discussed Next Month NATAL, B.C. (HNS) The trustees of five school districti in the East KooLonay are plan- ning to meet Sept. li) and 20 to discuss ramifications of amal- gamation of the boards as sug- gested by D. L. Brothers, min- ister of education. Mr. Brothers suggested early in July that such a move would result in considerable savings in operational cost: and dlso in improvement to the educational facilities. Points suggested by the minister were that with one large district, ex- pert personnel, such as direc- tors of secondary education and elementary instruction would be possible; that there will be advantage in having Recreation Events Studied TABER (HNS) Events scheduled for the fall season of activities at the yet unnamed community here were recreation reviewed centre by the local recreation board. Taber Roping Club's amateur rodeo, delayed for one week will now take place in the hoc key arena, Sept. 18 and !9. For this event, some six inch es of soil vrfll be moved onU the concrete floor for the pro hection of rodeo animals anc contestants. Immediately following the in door rodeo, the dirt floor wil be removed and ice made with out delay. Sept. 26 will see the kick oft here of 12 games lo be play ed throughout the winter, in which the Calgary Centennials iunior hockey team will host visiting teams from the Prairie provinces in exhibition games. Seats are to be numbered, and tickets will be printed for No Pollution Control Bylaws open to couples, courting, as well duals. married or indivi- Times and dales of meeting will be determined by the par- ticipants once the groups are constituted, either day or eve- ning possible. For applications call the Family Life Centre, While They Last! 1970 TOYOTA COROLLAS TOYOTA TRAVEL CENTRE located at General Farm Supplies Coutfs Highway Phone 327-3165 NATAL, B.C. (HNS) Tlie Regional District of East Koo- tenay has decided against any immediate attempt to establish pollution control bylaws, but il has asked for better communi- cation with the provincial Pol- lution Control Branch. The board has recently been criticized for its actions in han- dling applications for permits to discharge effluent within the regional district. The criticism has been based on the assump- tion that the board could have held up applications to the Pol- lution Control Branch for per- mits. In fact, as B.C. legislation stands, the board's only option is to endorse any application that does not contravene any of its bylaws. The board has not passed any pollution control bylaws, and applications that it has pro- cessed, have contravened no other1 bylaws such as zoning or building bylaws. In an attempt lo fully clarify procedures in getting effluent discharge permits, the board at its last meeting discussed the matter with the district en- Mr. Adamache told tlie board gineer in Cranbrook for tlie Pollution Control Branch, LaiTy Adamache. Mayor R. Lcnardon of Fernie initiated the discussion, and he wondered if this board as a governing body in an area where there are many sources of pollution, should institute some bylaws lo conlrol it. Both Stan Wilson of Kimber- ley and. Earl Tabor of Spar- wood reported that their coun- cils had initiated pollution legislation, only to abandon it before putting it in force be- cause administration of such legislation would be next to im- jossible. Any attempt to en- force a bylaw at the present ime, director Wilson said, would be an exercise in futility. As the province has not set down standards for water pollu- tion, the RDEK would have to hire someone to set standards, devise ways to ensure that they were observed, and police them. Director of the Elk Val- ley, George Fedorek suggested that "our budget would have to be two or three times what it is that tlie legislation had been de- signed as it was so that the municipal government 'involved would have to know of the ap- plication before it reached the Pollution Control Branch. When it does, any interested party can make a submission to op- pose the granting of a permit. Administrator Frank Bertoia suggested that the HDEK does not even have tlie expertise lo adjudicate applications and know whelher it should or could oppose them. Nor does it have any feedback from the Pollution Conlrol Branch lo tell it whether or not permits are granted. Mayor Lenardon moved that the board write the Branch to suggest that more effective lines of communication be set up between it and the board. The motion was carried. Tlie board then directed Mr. Bertoia to endorse an applica- tion from permit lo Kaiser Coal for a discharge the by- products of its coal preparation plant on to adjacent land.

Fernie board chairman Jack Pidgeon said lu's board will School Starts On Sept. 3 seriously consider (lie minis- ter's suggestions, although there is doubt of the practica- bility of some.
