"We must first look at futures," stated Mrs. Daw. "The effect of birt>. control has made changes. We didn't anticipate youths staying away from university. We must choose courses now in high school." Home and School Federation can help as a pressure group in achieving needs. Representatives take resolutions to Edmonton and the cabinet. One was to get equal advantages for smaller, older schools. "Too many in Alberta wait and do nothing," she said. A total' of $1,000,000 has been given for upgrading of city schools. Dr. Worth proposed that which would helo poverty areas. Mrs. Nina Klopnenborg of Lethbridge spoke briefly on priority concerns of the Worth Reoort. Preschool education should be made available to all - not just to those who can afford private kindergarten. Grade 12 departmental exams should he abolished as they regimentalize all students to take the same things. It is wrong to require a rigid set of rules, she said.

United Church Women are responsible for both program and refreshments. Mrs. June J asm an is the president. A warm welcome awaits women of all denominations. Learn to appreciate the miracle of nature! Look at birds. Study their size, their coloring for winter and summer, their migration habits. Study the snow for their tracks. Scouts must be able to differentiate between a raven and a crow, a chicadee and a Canada Jay, an Hungarian partridge from a pTieasant. When on a hike be quiet or you will see nothing. At Camp Tmpcesa a few years ago, on a hike around ill? lake, 20 boys saw nothing; five at rear saw a fawn curled up in hiding. Collect small bird and animal books. At your headquarters have a wildlife library where you can find pictures, coloring and other information to help in identification. Get leaders of fish and game groups to talk and show slides, movies and other visual aids. Visit your nearest Alberta Wildlife office. You can get free booklets showing most wild game birds, animals and fish. Go to your public library and your school library. Museums can help a lot. Natural history museums are a tremendous help. Remember, one or two boys on a hike see more than a lai-ge number. Try to read a story in the snow. Was it a weasel or an owl that killed that rabbit? Having put your mind to all this study of nature, read, study and think of conservation and anti-pollution. Leaders can show you a number of badges you can earn and at the same time begin a life-long interest. You know now why we are so interested in Camp Impeesa and all that is found there. District Commissioner C. S. Blysak of the Crows-nest -district says unauthorized young people in S p a r w o od, El It ford . and Blairmore have been collecting funds in the name of the Boy Scouts of Canada. These people have no connection with the movement whatsoever. The Scout policy regarding financing states that "a service must be given for a contribution received." Be ale.rt for those who collect funds under false pretenses. Ask for identification. Today with so many Cubs and Scouts, even Venturers cooking, yes, even baking, how about a Valentine cake? Cookies are easy too. Every where you go there are senior citizens living alone or in lodges. Make them happy with a cake, cookies and a song. Read and ask if necessary but do try a few straight forward items such as Irish stew, rice pudding, macaroni and dumplings. Greetings go out this time to Cub II. Hassclman of the Pinchcr Creek Pack. This cheery fair-haired boy was recently con valescing from an appendectomy in St. Vincent's Hospital when we happened to visit his ward. Good going, Cub Hassclman! His only regret was that he would not be on a chuckwagon team at the Taber Rodeo on Feb. 17. Recently we visited the home of former Scouter Art Williams in Blairmore. On his front room wall was a huge oil painting depicting most realistically a canoe in real white-water rapids. A sergeant of the RCMP and an Indian are paddling for dear life. This picture has a story connected with it. Const. M e 1 v i n Williams, stationed at Yorkton, Sask., himself a former Scout from Blairmore, had occasion to be out on patrol during a very bitter blizzard in York-Ion when he came to a telephone booth in which an Indian couple arid their small child had been forced to take refuge. Thanks to Const. Wil-I iams the family were removed to his boarding house room where they were able to recover from the effects of their prolonged exposure to the cold. It turned out that the father was a noted Indian artist. He told the constable he would repay him for his kindness later. Time passed and two years later tins lovely oil painting was turned in to the detachment office. It hangs on a wall in his parents' home at Blairmore. Good hunting, all!
