News Service ETZIKOM - Life will begin again this week for a young Etzikom couple, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Harty,'Whose home was totally destroyed by fire just one month ago. They will complete the move into their new home in Etzikom. They will also become the parents of a new baby. Jan. 5 a fire destroyed their home and contents in 90 minutes. They had moved in 10 days earlier. They had just purchased a farm eight miles northeast of Etzikom, They left home about 8:30 a.m. for Lethbridge and then Medicine Hat. The fire was noticed by neighbor Adam Lanz at 11:45 a.m. and by 1:15 there was nothing left but a smoking shell. Fire investigators have been unable to come up with an exact cause for the fire though the most likely possibility seems to be that it started in the southeast corner of the building. Here the bathroom was situated. There was a propane heater and hot water tank in this room. Whatever caused the blaze, it produced enormous heat in a short time. Glass in the windows and in household goods melted in the fierce heat. Many of the belongings wei'e still unpacked from the move. Had there been anyone in the isolated area to help, some of these items might have been saved from the part of the house that burned last. But it was not to be so. It all went, right down to the $379 stereo that hadn't even played a dozen records yet. The couple were stunned when the new finally caught up with them in Medicine Hat during the late afternoon. Two days later, Mr. Harty suffered a fall when the corner of a hay pile broke loose. He broke two ribs and suffered other minor in juries. Southern hospitality took over. Ed and Marlene are still talking of the generosity and kindness of people from all over the area, known and unknown, who came to their rescue. A benefit dance was held here. A baby layette, kitchen and grocery showers were held. Gifts and donations of money, many of them anonymous, poured in to ease the couple's need. This week the purchase was completed of the Len B rower house in Etzikom. With their first child due within about a week, they are very happy to be making the fresh start so soon after their bad experience.

Croivsnest Pass Bureau NEWS -:- CIRCULATION JOB PRINTING Vernon Decoux, Resident Rep., Blairmer* - Phone 562-2149 Babies need love, security STIRLING (HNS) - The love and security children receive during their first year of life are pertinent factors in determining their later behaviour. This point was brought out by a Lethbridge psychiatrist, Lawrence Kotkas, at a recent PTA meeting. His main topic was depression, and he defined it as bottled up anger which should be expressed either physically or verbally. Physical conditions also seem to affect individuals; as when the wind blows harder (Chinooks), the suicide rate as well as mental illnesses and depressions, seem to occur more frequently. PTA member Lyman Hardy suggested that this could be because of the build-up of depression due to winter inactivity. Dr. kotkas agreed although the cause is not really known.
