Sunday, Aug 30 a hundred years (more or less) after the settlers left everyone inter- ested in visiting the site will be given a guided tour. George Watson, curator of the Sir Alexander Gait Museum, has arranged a Sunday after- noon trip to the original loca- tion of the old fort, at the junc- tion of the St. Mary and Old- man Rivers. The actual fort is gone now, but its outline lingers; and a Schools In County To Open Tuesday County of Lethbridge schools' will open Tuesday, Sept. 1, with the exception of schools in Picture Butte, which opened today. Staff will total 170 teachers In 19 buildings, four of which are in the district Hutterite colonies, which have been des- ignated as one school this year under principal Howard Har- vey, for administrative pur- poses. There will be no significant changes in operation of the county schools from the spring term, except that Coalhurst High School will operate on the semester system. In an effort to effect econo- mies in busing costs, the county has redrawn its school bus routes so that fewer but larger buses can be used. During the summer the science laboratory in the Mc- Nally School was renovated to allow individual student sta- tions, and in the John David- son School in Coaldale, a large play area has been renovated to produce a large area for team teaching. Mel Bergman has been named principal of the Turin Elementary School, replacing Dr. Doug Aikenhead, and Her- man Com replaces Reg Burnard as principal of the Coalhurst High School.

Mr. Watson will lead a car cavalcade from the museum al 2 p.m., driving as far as the north side of the river on the Hubbard farm, where the cairn can be seen and surrounding lands surveyed. For the more adventurous Mr. Watson has arranged for several canoes in which people can cross the river tc walk the actual Fort Whoop-Up land. The river is shallow enough it could also be waded. The fort was established at a low-lying riverbottom area be low coulee banks, and was and still is surrounded by prairie grass, small bushes am large stands of trees.
