Way north of here, at CJareshoIm, Gordon Brown, president of the Claresholm Lions Club, recently presented a cheque for $383 to Ed Meyerhoffer, vice - president of the Claresholm Minor Hockey Association, at the regular Lions meeting. It will aid minor hockey. Dipping down to Fort Mac-leod, we find oldtimers there are hoping to see the old town hall remodelled for a drop-in centre. It would be a meeting room where they could "chew the fat" and play a game or two of crib. Looking over some hockey statistics, Pot-Luck sees Natf-ton is so far ahead of Vulcan and Claresholm they might as well call the whole thing off. Deep in the heart of Nan-ton, Soren Sorenson received a silver coffee service from the Town of Nanton and a matching cream and sugar set from the town staff. Mr. Sorenson became a town employee in 1951 and is now semi-retired.

Harry Dwellc is h e a d ing .he Nanton branch of the :3oyal Canadian Legion this /�ear. And Peggie Duthie is .he new auxiliary president. Leaving the bright lights at Taber, we ride the ditch on up to Vulcan where we learn Capt. D. A. Roebuck, son of W. Edward Roebuck of Vulcan, has been promoted to the rank of major in the Canadian Armed Forces. You just can't have too many friends! At the same time and place, Rev. Patrick O'Dona-ghue of Vulcan leaves to work at Malawi, africa. The Community Hall at Champion was filled to capacity when Nobleford, Barons, Car-mangay, Champion and Vulcan members of St. Andrew's Roman Catholic Parish met to say farewell to their pastor of four years. Calgary Diocese priests of the Order of the Holy Spirit are running this African mission. Want to se8 a 1934 fire truck? Head up to Carman-gay. Firefighters there have a 1934 unit they keep on standby duty. Its origins are lost in the sands of time but it seems to have been serving Black Diamond at one time. And a special good night to all those couples who find themselves at sea on their water beds. FORT MACLEOD (HNS) -Excessive consumption of alcohol was a contributing factor, a coroner's jury decided here yesterday, in the death of seven people killed in a two-car crash on Highway 3 east of' Fort Macleod at 9:20 p.m. Dec. 16.

RDEK and EKRHD administrator Frank Bertoia reports possibility of another slight drop in 1973 of hospital tax rate from last year's 1.93 mills.
