Born to an Iowa farm fam- ily on Dec. 23, 1378, Mr. Price was educated from his parents' home. He married while still in Iowa and stayed on to farm with his father. In 1803 Mr. and Mrs. Price with their eldest son Harley, came to Didsbury, w here Mr. Price ran t h e cream- ery. He was particularly thrill- ed with one special order for 50 pounds of butter for the roy- al train in 1906. From Didsbury the Jam i 1 y, then including mother, father and four sons, moved to Lash- burn, Saskatchewan where Mr. Price was in the lumber busi- ness. While there he became mayor of the town and had the privilege of reading the wel- coming speech to Prime Minis- ter Sir Wilfred Laurier. Another highlight of his life occurred in Lashburn when he became dis- trict deputy grand master of Saskatchewan Masons. He had joined the lodge in Iowa in 1902. As far as known he is tlie oldest living past deputy in Alberta and his service record of 68 years is probably un- equalled. The family left Saskatchewan and came back to Alberta, set- tling in Youngstown for a time and finally coming to Irricana where Mr. Price was the Al- berta Wheat Pool Agent for over 20 years. Mrs. Price's fail- ing health and a kind imitation tn come and make their home with their son and his wife brought them to Fort Macleod in the spring of 1954. Mrs. Price died that fail and Mr. Price continued to make las home with his son Cecil and Airs. Price, excepting for the winters when he went to Cali- fornia to visit the younger son, Gordon. He went to live at Pioneer Lodge about a year ago and after a short illness he moved to Blunt's Nursing Home hi July of this year. Always active in the com- munity he called home, besides his civic responsibilities and his lodge, he was an active mem- ber of the United Church. The family he is so proud of are II a r 1 c y, retired in Red Deer; Cecil, a druggist in Fort Macleod; Vern, a druggist Picture Butte- and Gordon, man- ager of a large company in California. There are six grand- children and 12 great grand- children. As the Christmas season ush- ers in his year, this grand old man say's, "It's a good life, I'm happy. I'm most thankful for good health, to be able to sleep well, to eat well, have a few friends and enjoy life. I don't think I have any ene- mies."

Highway 36 shift rejected TABER (HNS) Highways Minister Taylor has advised town council any future exten- sion of Highway 36 north of Highway 3 should continue on its present course at the west extremity of town. The town had suggested the future extension should bo shifted one half mile west to coincide with the now paved ac- cess road to the Taber Provin- cial Park. The highways minister noted that the northward projection of Highway 36 would tie into a future location of Highway 3 two miles to the north and would become the west bound- ary of town. He said that the town had already been request- ed to reserve 250 feet of right- of-way along the west bound- ary for the highway. The land hi question lies with the MD of Taber. The council did agree with Mr. Taylor that it is premature to consider relocation. Objec- tion will be raised again.
