Council was advised by the Alberta Hospital Services Commission of the founding of the Taber General and Aux- iliary Hospital District CO terminus with the Municipal District of Taber. The letter advised of approval of the new district by the Lethbridge General and Auxiliary Hospital and Nurs- ing Home District, and was addressed to the MD of Taber which represents the municipal administrations within its boundaries. Council deferred any action, since the MD is recognized by the AHSC in all negotiations regarding the hospital dis- trict. Council had earlier sub- scribed to the application for. a separation from the Lethbridge district. The new year will see a new member on the Taber Public Library board, Mrs. Marjorie Loree. She will replace Mrs. Elfreda Wiebe who has resigned. The re appointment of Mrs. Zetta Daisley as a member of the board was also approved. Other library board members are Harry B. Myers chairman, Betty Conrad, Den- nis M. Turin, and Alice Avery secretary. Council also accepted a recommendation from Early Childhood Services and will erect playground caution signs on 50th Avenue adjacent to Parkside Manor which is now used for kindergarten classes on approval of Police Chief Gordon H. Hacking. The advisibility of painting a crosswalk on 50th Avenue, recently excavated for telephone and sewer lines in- stallation, was questioned because of the coming winter season. Coun. Don Windrum reported the start of installa- tion of traffic control lighting at the 5tth and 56th Ave. intersections on 54th St. between the Central Elemen- tary and the W. R. Myers High schools. The lights will be ac- tivated during school bus loading periods, diverting traffic away from the area. Also discussed was the need for better traffic control in the downtown area, particularly 'during the busy Saturday afternoon hours. Stop and go traffic lights at 48th Avenue and 53rd Street were con- sidered but no action was taken pending further study of other means of control. Members of council will dis- cuss with Taber MD authorities the possibility of cost sharing the oiling of the gravel road to the common waste disposal area, and the improvement of the old Red Trail (extension of 50th Avenue east) within the town's easterly boundaries. Council agreed to retain the Christmas decorative lighting on the six double standards on Highway 3 for this year. MR. AND MRS. ANDRE BOHOMOLEC OF BLAIRMORE Pipeline route OK with group BLAIRMORE (C1NF Bureau) The Crowsnest Pass Citizens Historical Society has no objection to the route of the Coseka Resources proposed pipeline. It will connect a gas field north of Coleman to the pipeline from Savannah Creek to the Sentinel gas plant. Historical society president Fred Bradley urged members to attend a public meeting Dec. 13 on the relocation of Highway 3. Members don't want areas of historical significance harmed by the new route. Place of the meeting will be announced. Public suggestions on the above matters will be appreciated by the society, in particular the marking of ad- ditional historical themes in. the 'Pass by highway point of interest signs. Mr. Bradley said the society already has two suggestions. Stamp honors 'Pass man By VERN DECOUX Herald Pass Bureau COLEMAN To have a commemorative stamp issued that acknowledges an achieve- ment made during ones lifetime is tribute few receive. Such honors usually come posthumously but then Andre Bohomolec ij an un- usual man. He has to his credit an-Arabian nights type career that includes three wars, diplomatic service, ranching and horse breeding. His six foot, six inch size may have been somewhat of a detriment to his army career as he was wounded many times. This year the Polish government issued a stamp marking the 50th anniversary of the voyage of the Dal, a 27 foot cutter in which Andre Bohomolec and two com- panions navigator George Swiechowski and John Witowski, travelled from the Baltic Sea to Chicago. The reason for the journey was an interest in sailing, in which he had had little experience, the World Fair which was being held in Chicago and a good will gesture towards the residents of Polish descent in Chicago. The trio sailed on June 8, 1933 for their destination, which they 'did not reach for more than a year. Two near shipwrecks and foul weather forced the inexperienced sailors to detour to Bermuda for refitting sad a winter South In short Claresholm ranch buys heifer CLARESHOLM (HNS) The top-selling heifer at the re- cent Fifth Canadian Simmental Sale at Brandon, Man., was purchased for by Wes Aim's Bar 15 Ranch near here. It was consigned by Big Valley Simmental of Big Valley, near Camrose. New restaurant at Bow Island A new restaurant in Bow Island .with a seating capacity of 60 and a dining room capacity of 80 is now under construction. The Southwind Family Inn, to be owned and operated by Hans Nielsen of Bow Island, will cater to the tourist trade and local citizens located on Highway 3. The 70 foot by 45 foot building will also have facilities for take out service. With several new industries in Bow Island and more waiting government approval, the restaurant will fill a growing need for the town, said Bow Island Economic Development Officer Fred Mellen. The scheduled opening date in early spring. District discussing hotel SPARWOOD (HNS) The District of Sparwood is discuss- ing plans for a 30 room hotel on Red Cedar Drive here. A group of local residents presented plans to council at a re- cent special meeting. Evangeline Danabassis and Hans Kalveram presented their proposal to council following the failure of Mekka Holdings of Calgary to go ahead with its plans to build a hotel on the site. It is estimated the new facility will cost between and stopover. In June, 1934 the lit- tle boat again took to the seas and New York was reached in nine days of rough weather. The rest of the journey up the Hudson river, through the Erie Canal and across Lakes Champlain, Huron, Lake Michigan took 21 days. At 34, Mr. Bohomolec had served 17 years in the Polish army, enlisting during World War I and later fought with Marshal Pilsudski's cavalry in the war against the Bolsheviks. He received several promotions on the battlefield and became a ranking officer. It was after the wars that the quiet of peacetime stirred his adven- turous spirit into making the ocean voyage. On his return to Poland from Chicago, Andre Bohomolec entered the diplomatic corps, becoming councillor general and charge affairs at Shanghai. This post he held until the fall of Poland and World War two. He joined the Polish Army in France as an officer and was transferred to the British 8th Army and served in Africa and Middle East. recovery from war wounds, he took commando training as a i araLrccpcr iG take part in the invasion of Italy. With the end of the war he migrated to Bermuda, there becoming a British subject. The small island with its colonial society was not for Andre Bohomolec, after a life of adventure covering two continents. The move to Canada in 1949 saw him as a rancher operating the Arrow Head Ranch west of Innisfail. In 1964 he disposed of this property and came to the Crowsnest Pass and developed the Bohomolec Ranch west of Coleman which he and his wife. Kate still operate. The story of the Dal voyage which Andre Bohomolec wrote is now being re published in Poland. The cutter has been placed in the Museum of Science and In- dustry there. Tlie Herald- District Salesmen need licences Make sure door to door salesmen have provincial licences, cautions the provin- cial consumer affairs branch in Calgary. George Blochert of the branch told The Herald there have been recent instances in British Columbia where salesmen have valued goods they were selling at a much higher price than the going More permits issued this year CRANBROOK (Special) There were 34 building per- mits issued in November, authorizing construction with an estimated value of In November, 1973, 19 per- mits were authorized for in construction. This year the permits covered 31 housing units which brought the housing unit starts for 1974 to 194, one of the few places where a unit increase has been recorded this year. At the end of last November, the tally was 173 units. The unit starts have been boosted by 44 since early Oc- tober in a CMHC family rental home construction project in which the federal government pays three quarters and the provincial government one- quarter of the costs. More of these are expected in 1975. The current batch will be ready for spring occupation. The 1974 permits totals for Cranbrook now stand at 275 permits valued at compared with 341 permits valued at for the same date in 1973. price. They then offer the customer a discount to close the deal and still sell the goods for more than they are worth. These salesmen may be moving into the Lethbridge area, Mr. Blochert said in a telephone interview from Calgary. If a consumer buys an item from a licensed salesman, decides he doesn't want it and returns it within four days the salesman has to take the item back and return the con- sumer's money, according to the Direct Sales Cancellation Act. However, if a door to door salesman is not licensed, the purchaser has no recourse, Mr. Blochert said. It's illegal to sell without a licence. Any person who en- counters a salesman without a licence should report him to the local police department, Mr. Blochert urged. Man honored for service to education NANTON (Staff) Gerald P. Loree, 29 years a Nanton school trustee, has received a scroll from the Alberta School Trustees Association recognizing his service to education. Also honored at a recent banquet at Claresholm was A. P. Grant, secretary treasurer of the division for 27 years and a trustee representing Claresholm for three years.
