Senior citizens are being asked to contact the Town of Nanton office to leave their names and state a time when it would be convenient for them to be interviewed in their homes.

Earlier it was thought all that was needed was an up- dating of the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration department's 1965 study but department of the environ- ment says a new study is needed. It could take two years to prepare. Town Secretary Terry Lyon says it could be a crisis situa- tion that is facing town residents. "If the creek dries up, we are out of he says. "That is why we are pushing for another water supply." Underwood, McLellan and Associates has told town coun- cil that all that is needed is an updating of the first PRFA study. The engineering firm says the only thing that has changed is the cost picture. At the time of the PRFA study, test holes were drilled. Council wants its consulting engineering firm to do the study and feels the depart- ment of the environment should pay for it because the department of the environ- ment says it is too busy to do the work itself. "We're dickering with the department of says Mr. Lyon. The town draws its water from a reservior about one mile west of here. There are two alternatives to a new dam: A seven mile pipeline to the Castle River and a second reservior.

Gordon Stuckey will be notified that if he will pay the costs, the town will install a sidewalk in front of his house. Council learned that trucks and equipment hauling fill into the Taylor lot on Adelaide Street were damaging the sidewalk.

Elk draw in south Stringent government controls that include a lucky draw and registration of kills have been placed on the hunting of anterless elk in Southern Alberta by the provincial department of lands and forests. The elk hunting season in Southern Alberta big game zones 9, 10 and II extends from Nov. 19 through Nov. 30. The draw system was introduced by the department to reduce the number of hunters and distribute them more evenly through the designated hunting areas. Hunters must have a regular elk hunting licence to be eligi- ble for the anterless elk draw and must submit an applica- tion to enter the special draw before Oct. 1. "We expect the result will be a more orderly and en- joyable elk season with less friction between hunters and farmers in the private land areas, said Gordon Kerr, provincial fish and wildlife director. Registration with a provin- cial fish and wildlife office within 30 days of the kill of an anterless elk was introduced with the new regulations to enable wildlife authorities to obtain accurate information on the extent of the harvest and the ages of the animals taken. Registration procedure, Mr. Kerr explained, involves sub- mission of the end of the lower jaw containing the incisor teeth, information of the sex of the animal and date and location of the kill.
