Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, August LETHBRIDGE The Herald' District Night policemen prove value TABER (HNS) The value of maintaining night police service in the control of serious crime was stressed in his July report to town council by Chief Gordon H. Hacking of the Taber police. On at least three occasions during the month nocturnal criminals were apprehended. An early morning report on July 4 of a break in in a down- town meat market saw the burglar apprehended the same morning and the stolen goods and cash taken recovered. Four days after a service station on Highway 3 was entered during the night. By a.m. the following day three local youths were under arrest and the stolen money recovered. Early July 21, the night con- stable checked a car. In- quiries revealed the vehicle to have been stolen at Calgary the day previous. It was returned to its owner. These cases were among the 33 Criminal Code convictions reported for the month highest monthly total in more than three years. Charges included impaired driving, common assault, entering and theft, and a variety of theft, forgery, resisting arrest and indecency offences. Only seven Criminal Code cases were reported for June. Highway traffic convic- tions, 35 for the month, involv- ed speeding, stunting, and two cases of hit and run.

Calgary, Alberta, T2P OZ6. Fund request supported by district CRANBROOK (Special) The Regional District of East Kootenay board has supported an additional request for provincial funds by the Canal Flats Winter Club to complete its rink complex. Started as an arena project, it was estimated to cost 000 and received a provincial recreational facilities grant of Expanded to include a curl- ing rink, the project is now es- timated to be worth when finished. The club has asked for another grant for one third of the additional Canal Flats residents have also asked to have a plebiscite run in a specified area, probably coinciding with the boundaries of the Water Improvement District, to allow a paid recreational worker. The board first refused a direct request for a grant to pay a recreation worker for six months. It has no authority to finance recreation. However, if the plebiscite passes, it will apply to the provincial government for the function, which could then be exercised throughout the specified area. Courts of revision for area voters' lists will be held Oct. 1 in Fernie, Kimberley and Invermere council chambers and at the board room of the RDEK offices at Cranbrook. Concern for fire safety in public buildings outside of municipalities has prompted the RDEK directors to ask the provincial fire marshall to "assign a representative to inspect and advise on fire safety requirement standards in all public buildings, com- munity halls and schools located throughout the regional district." The board also asked the fire marshall to establish and implement a periodic system of inspection services of such buildings. South In Short Office wanted in East Kootenay CRANBROOK (Special) The Regional District of East Kootenay has sharply criticized the B.C. lands, forests and water resources minister for locating the Kootenay district engineer's office for the provincial pollution control branch at Nelson. The RDEK has told Lands, Forests and Water Resources Minister Robert Williams its objection is based on the heavy in- dustrial load in the East Kootenay, "where most of the work is." Nelson is in the West Kootenay. The RDEK has decided to encourage all municipal councils and other interested groups to make similar objections. When the branch was established about four years ago, Larry Adamache, the first district engineer, established his of- fice here. Since then there has been a move in government departments to centralize Kootenay services at Nelson. A number of fish and wildlife people were moved there, despite some strong opposition from people of this area. Plant to expand BASSANO XL Feeds Ltd. of Bassano, 26 miles west of Brooks on the Trans-Canada Highway, has accepted a depart- ment of regional economic expansion offer of for a new plant to process beef, poultry and hog feeds. The project is expected to create an estimated 14 jobs. The offer is based on a rate of 25 per cent of the approved capital costs, estimated at plus 15 per cent of approv- ed wages ana salaries.

Indians mined in 'Pass long before Christ By BRUCE DECOUX Crowsnest Pass Bureau BLAIRMORE Archaeologists have recently discovered that the Crowsnest Pass, known for its coal mining activities of the past 80 years, was an important mining area for prehistoric Indians. Indians operated flint mines here about the time of Christ, says Dr. Brian Reeves of the University of Calgary. Dr. Reeves has discovered their quarries in the Livingstone Mountains. He says it is an important discovery because previously archaeologists thought the Indians found their flints in gravel areas. They were also thought to have acquired flints by trading with tribes in Montana who operated prehistoric mines. The 'Pass mines are the only ones to be dis- covered in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta. They are probably the largest and most im- portant finds in the southern Alberta Rockies, says Dr. Reeves. Apparently the Indians had a basic knowledge of prospecting. The flint only out- crops in small areas in the Livingstone Range. It is found at elevations around feet. The beds are folded and faulted. Seven Indian mining sites have been dis- covered At the sites, seams of flint as thick as two feet occur. Discarded stone tools and waste materials have been found in pits. These might have been mine entrances, says Dr. Reeves. He says the flint was obtained with very crude tools. Prehistoric Indians had no iron. In fact, there was none until the coming of the white man in the 1700s. Apparently elk and deer antlers were used as picks, prys and wedges to remove the chert These tools have been found in other excavations at Indian campsites in the 'Pass. Quartzite pebbles and cobbles were used as hammers to break up the blocks at the quarry and shape them for removing the flint blanks. They used the flint blanks to make tools. These were heated in fires to make them easier to work. Antler and bone awls were used to shape the finished tools. Dr. Reeves estimates the mines were first used 8.000 years ago but the peak use. he says, occurred about the time of Christ. Bumper pronghorn crop produces more permits FOREMOST (Staff) There are more antelope this year and slightly more hunters may be looking for them during a one week, buck only antelope season from Oct. 21 to Oct. 26. A bumper kid crop, up 15 per cent from last year, has contributed to the overall pronghorn population increase. Fish and wildlife surveys indicate a population of about 10.800 animals. This year the number of per- mits has been set at 1.105. up 30 from the issued last year. Fifty of the allotments are reserved for non resident Canadians. It is expected the hunter success rate will be between 62 and 70 per cent for a harvest of about 750 bucks. Successful resident hunters will be restricted to one licence every two seasons. four years before becoming Non residents bagging a pronghorn will have to wait eligible for another licence.
