"They should be writing and he said, "on mul- itsensory levels, in terms such as sound, smell, taste and touch. To the students and to the in service workshop, he demonstrated his technique by showing a long shot of a farm house and barn on a screen He then began to ask questions about what they could see Then he gave another, closer view of the same scene which showed more details, and finally a series of close ups.

Council rejects land bid FORT MACLEOD (Staff) Town council Monday night rejected one land sales application and tabled three others pending completion of its new land sales policy. John Nelson's bid of for a parcel near the Oldman River west of town was re- jected. Mr. Nelson has now been turned down three times. He proposed to use the land as a commercial tent and camp- ing area. Mayor Charlie Edgar said effluent from the campground toilet facilities would drain through the gravel to the town's water intake. Coun. Jim Coutts noted if the land were sold it would isolate the water intake and "we don't know what we are going to have to do with our in- take." Don Gedalman's application to purchase lot 19 on the north side of 15th St, west of 5th Ave., was tabled. Council learned he also wants an ad- joining lot for truck parking. Coun John Viens suggested the noise of the trucks would bother nearby residents. He urged that Mr. Gedalman build his house in one location and park his trucks in an in- dustrial area. "He is running his trucks any time, day or said the councillor. Bob Falconer of Victoria missed buying two lots on the south side of 26th St., east of 5th Ave., for when Coun. Viens suggested council prepare a lot sales policy that would include the cost of future servicing sidewalks, curbs, power, water and sewer. "I would rather see it included in the cost of the said town administrator Roy White after Coun. Ian Bennett said the charge for connecting to services could be hiked. Another application for land from Robert Marsden was also tabled until the Jan. 6 meeting when a recommenda- tion will be brought to council for its land sales committeee. Land leases examined FORT MACLEOD (Staff) Council Monday night decided to take a careful look at the land it leases and formulate a new policy for its Jan. 6 meeting. This action followed a dis- cussion on Albert Zoeteman's application to renew a pasture lease he has held for about 12 years and another by Julius Moltzahn. Said Coun Jim Coutts: "I think right now we should be advertising all these leases that are out and and open the tenders in February. We may Senior party set today BELLEVUE (CNP Bureau) The Bellecrest Senior Citizens' annual Christmas party will be held at p.m. today in the Maple Vue Hall at Maple Leaf. The Bellevue Christian Reformed Church Women will cater the event. Preventive Social Service director Alan Wilcke is help- ing to organize the event. About 120 members will attend. Festival drew COALDALE (HNS) More than people attended the recent Coaldale Carol Festival. Twenty one Coaldale and district choral groups per- formed. It was held two evenings. A Grade 2 pupil from the R.I. Baker School here said, "We sure sang short but we practised long." It has been an annual event here for 20 years. have somebody pay us three times what we are getting for that land." Council will decide whether to lease lands for one, three or five years. Mayor Charlie Edgar noted there is a lot near the elevators here that "nobody wants." It will have to be sold cheap, he said, even though it already has services. Coun. John Viens was told by Mayor Charlie Edgar, in answer to his question, that councillors may undertake projects of or less on their own initiative. "Tell the administrator what is being he said. Works supervisor George Bota told council work has begun on the digging of trenches at the industrial air- port for the installation of un- derground wiring for runway lighting. Mayor Charlie Edgar told Oldman River Regional Planning Commission planner Bill Hickman that one town resident still uses an outdoor privy "and we can't do a damn thing about it." Mr Hickman seemed sur- prised, in as much as it is vir- tually imposible to get per- mits for septic tanks within a town under present regulations. The town office will be clos- ed Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Dec. 26 to 28. It will be open Saturday, Dec. 21, said administrator Roy White. Mr. Bota said town workmen have completed their annual bottle drive and will be selling bottles they have collected to finance their public works and town office Christmas party set for the afternoon of Dec. 24. Parks officials hope the ef- fort will put the trail back to a state'of natural beauty. Heavy equipment turned the dirt road into a series of mudholes last May. Huge trucks moving oil drilling equipment gouged deep into the trail after a two foot snowfall turned the area into a quagmire last spring. The trucks crashed off the road in places. This left an ugly scar on the park. It happened after Shell Canada drilled a foot dry hole on the forestry reserve adjoining the national park. The oil company put a road through the park, along the international boundary, to get equipment into the drilling site. At this point, ecological damage had been kept to a minimum. Then came the end of the drilling operation and a late spring snowfall. Now topsoil has been replaced and seeded. The well Man gets money back despite law FORT MACLEOD (Staff) Fort Macleod resident Dave Simpson will receive his 400 back from the town with the cancellation of an eight acre land sale. Mr. Simpson bought the land about two years ago but did not carry through with his plans to launch a riding academy. Council said that in return- ing Mr. Simpson's money, it was contravening its own bylaw which makes provision that money in these cases be not returned. Council then passed a mo- tion to adhere to its bylaw 834 on land sales at all times in the future. Training program offered NATAL (HNS) Fording Coal Ltd is in the process of setting up an all round train- ing program for workers us- ing heavy equipment. The courses are being con- ducted by Gordon Eakin, the company's training officer, who joined the coal producer from the vocational school at Terrace recently. The courses will be geared mainly for apprentices in heavy duty mechanics but eventually it is Mr. Eakin's hope that it will include up- grading instruction and retraining for journeymen. At present 16 employees are taking the 24 hour air brake course in the classroom which adjoins the heavy duty maintenance shop. In other aspects of the train- ing program, the employees are brought in for 15 minute or half hour sessions during the shift. If they elect to take the courses on their own time they receive pay the period spent in the classroom. It is hoped that by these training classes more tradesmen will be trained, as Mr. Eakin says, these are few and far between. site will become a mountain meadow. Involved in the road problem were heavy vehicles of Baseline Transport Limited of Calgary, a firm that moves huge oil rigs for oil com- panies. The rig, 142 feet long, was dismantled and moved out in four sections. Part of the trouble was caused by the sheer weight of the equipment one load in- volved a 28 ton mud pump on a lowboy, pulled through the series of mudholes by a big crawler tractor. Mud flowed down on Chief Mountain Highway. This was cleaned up immediately after the move. Throughout the summer, crews worked to contour the trail. Ecological damage oc- curred. Given a good spring and summer, it will be entire- ly grassed and erased in W5. The question remains1 "Should industrial equipment be allowed a right of way through national Quota wasn't full Tuesday morning To a.m. Tuesday, live cattle were still eligible for importation into the United States from Canada. Lifting a border restriction Monday to all but dairy and 13 purebred beef cattle breeds recognized by the U.S depart- ment of agriculture, Canadian cattlemen shipped animals to the U.S. Monday. This total amounted to more than half the remaining animals eligible to move to the U.S. from Canada under an annual import quota of 000 animals imposed by the American government retroactive to Aug. 12. The annual import quota included other classes of livestock The quota for live swine, set at animals Aug. 12, 1974 to Aug. 12, 1975, has room for animals. For the same period, im- ports of dressed veal and beef were set at 17 million pounds. Another pounds can be shipped before Aug. 12, 1975 Dressed pork products are in the safest position with another pounds eligible for import to the U.S. The annual quota has been set at 36 million pounds. Darrel Lerum, customs inspector at Sweetgrass, Mont., told The Herald at noon Tuesday only 10 animals had been submitted for entry to the U S. during the second day of the resumed quota. Mr. Lerum said he couldn't tell when the quota would be filled because the quota sec- tion of. the U S. government m Washington, D.C. didn't up- date the computer on livestock numbers until noon each day. But when the quota is filled, all livestock destined for the U.S. will be turned back to Canada Bison-cross brings Lilly Bly honored at 94 LOMOND (Special) Lilly Bly, former Lomond area resident, was honored here recently on the occasion of her 94th birthday.
