Almost 400 people turned out Sunday afternoon for a tour of the old Fort Whoop-Up site a number which overwhelmed both the organizers and the river-crossing facilities. About 110 carloads met at the Sir Alexander Gait Museum, and were led by museum cura- tor George Watson across the Oldman River, past the new univer'sity campus to the farm of Alf Hubbard, on whose land the fort sat. Mr. Hubbard had ploughed clean a farm road that took visitors to the riverbank, from where a stone cairn erected across the river by the Leth- bridge Jaycees in 1946 could be seen. Boats were available to transfer people across the Old- man, to a point of land formed by the junction of the Oldman and St. Mary Rivers, on which the fort was established in 1869, While southern Alberta his- torian Alex Johnston explained the history of Fort Whoop-Up the boats carried many people across the river. A few swam across, and many wad e d across. Included a num- ber of tourists, many children, younger district residents and a number of oldiimers who had also attended the Jaycee dedication ceremonies in 1946. Near the cairn runs the old Whoop-Up Trail, where oxen cart ruts can still be seen sev- eral inches deep. Along ths coulee banks a slash line is visible that was once the nar- row-gauge railroad running from Lethbridge to Fort Mac- leod. A new cairn, more accessible to the public, is to be dedicated Sept. 18 by the federal 'govern- ment's historic sites service, at a point near Hie department of transport weather station, and overlooking Whoop-Up Coulee, through which the Whoop-Up Trail ran and is still visible.

For that type of "burned up" can quickly pass and have no side effects. Much worse is over-exposure to the sun and the resulting "burned up" lingering pain and messy peeling of skin. It is really simple to avoid a good protective cream and initial exposure in small doses is all it takes even if you have sensitive skin. If you do get severe sunburn see a physician quickly. For a moderate case a soothing analgesic spray can be effective. Draffin's offer FILM PROCESSING BY MORTIFEE MUNSHAW which entitles you to a FREE REPLACEMENT FILM OR A SUBSTANTIAL CASH DISCOUNT.
