A map of B.C. prepared for distribution at Expo '74 in Spokane, Wash, by the provin- cial government omitted all areas east of Cranbrook, in- cluding the town of Fernie with a population of Also missed from the map was the coal-rich Crowsnest Pass. In requesting the annexation to Alberta, board of trade members said the map inci- dent was just the final straw in years of being ignored by the B.C. government. Mr. Lorimer said it was a mistake that the town was left off the map but all the fuss created by the board of trade over the matter "has put Fer- nie back on the map." Mr. Lorimer admitted the map incident was a mistake and "the sort of thing that doesn't help to make people happy in B.C." Telford Dicks, the member of the board of trade who proposed the secession move, was quoted "I just hope Mr. Barrett (B.C. premier) lets us go gracefully. If he won't give us a plebiscite, we'll petition for one." Fernie Mayor Vern Uphill said "the only time Victoria pays attention to us is at tax tune." He said the board of trade is carrying the fight for secession. In Alberta, provincial municipal affairs minister Dave Russell said the redraw- ing of the provincial boundary would raise "horrendous" constitutional and legal dif- ficulties. However, "we're always glad to welcome people to he said. And in Pincher Creek last week, the Pincher Creek- Crowsnest Provincial Progressive Conservative Association voted unanimous- ly to welcome Fernie into its constituency or see it become the 76th constituency hi Alber- ta.

It will suggest recommendations updating goals and objectives for the coming year, said Mr. Kotch, a Lethbridge city alderman. "The general consensus of the meeting suggested that in spite of the limited budget available to TCASA many of the goals of the association had been he said.

"The anti- hunter just does not unders- tand the sports and thinks that every sportsman is just handl- ing a gun for the purpose of killing. Sports groups have to face die challenge of the anti- group." To better educate the public, he suggested sports groups be educated. They must support management programs and study wildlife ecology. "In this highly competitive society the sportsman has to bring the facts to the young people and they are responsi- ble for making their cause known to the general public." The new executive was in- troduced. Taking over the Granum fire department needs more volunteers GRANUM (HNS) The Granum volunteer fire depart- ment has 15 members but more firefighters are needed.

It was one of the driest years on record. This, combin- ed with a lack of reserve moisture from the previous year, produced some dire con- ditions. Irrigation reached new heights as farmers irrigated every possible inch of land in an effort to salvage some crops. Several fields of grain were not harvested.

Ranchers had to resort to using their winter pasture fairly early in the fall, resulting in a complete and long winter feeding program for range cattle. The shortage of feed was one of the contributing factors in the reduction of the com- mercial feedlot operations in the area this winter. In other respects the year was a busy one for several people.

He also completed his second and final year as chairman of the Alberta Irrigation Projects Association. Meanwhile Mr. and Mrs. Walter V.
