Phone 327-6070 NATAL (HNS) - The courtroom in t hh e municipal office building will be available for a public hearing Feb. 22 on a zoning bylaw amendment. The amendment covers-zoning established for the upper Elk Valley. The District of Sparwood council recently accepted a proposal by Aid. Reg Taylor to maintain a stairway down a bank where school pupils enter on to Red Cedar Drive. Council favored requesting the school board to complete the fencing of its property as they have done on Pine Ave, and Blue Spruce Crescent sides of the property. Aid. Taylor- enquired about the contract for completion of Centennial Square. The municipal clerk informed him and council that the planting of shrubbery in the square was not a part of the contract for development of the square and that the project had been turned over to John Dyck, staff environmentalist at Kaiser Resources Ltd. Funds for the completion of the square are being supplemented by a federal gov- ernment grant under the Local Improvements Program. Council agreed to open the office for the sale of licence plates on the last Saturday of February. This year the last Saturday is Feb.-24, four days before the final day for purchasing new licence plates. As in past years, council authorized the Saturday opening as a convenience for those who cannot normally get into the office during a week-day. A letter was received from Elk Valley Air requesting council's endorsement for that firm's application for a specific point scheduled service for passengers, mail and freight to a number of centres in Canada and in the United States. The points to be serviced are points where inter-airline transfers can be made. These include Cranbrook. Calgary and Spokane, Wash. As a result of a meeting with the regional health officer, Dr. J. M. Hopper, council approved sin amendment bylaw for standards for industrial air pollution. The new standards are more stringent than those set out in the previous bylaw.

Milk River women aid hospital By META PETERSON Special Correspondent MILK RIVER - The efforts of a hospital auxiliary, backed by members of the community, provide a tremendous boost to any hospital.. The Border Counties General Hospital Auxiliary was organized March 25, 1965. Mrs. Jessie Snow presided at a meeting then of 10 women. Mrs. Jo Betty Tomfohr was acting secretary. The first officers were Jessie Snow of Milk River, president; Marie Lagler of Warner, 1st vice - president; Christine Thompson of Coutts, 2nd vice-president; Jo Betty Tomfohr of Milk River, recording secretary; Doreen Wilkie of Milk River, correspond i n g secre-atry; and Eunice Tomfohr of Milk River, treasurer. There were 47 charter members. The women still meet on ths fourth Thursday of each month at 2 p.m. in the hospital staff dining room. Members helped the hospital with the first "hospital disaster" drill May 19, 1965, and these drills are held regularly. Members began the hospital tuck cart service in May, 1965. Stock and bookkeeping is handled by Frances Hagg. "About this time also we began sewing draw sheets, towels, pyjamas, diapers, for use in the hospital," says Mrs. Snow. The group has handled dona-: tions to provide the Lethbridge Herald for the patients, since its inception. It has had outside organizations provide tray favors on special days tlirough-out each year. In January, 1967, it began the practice of presenting gifts to the first baby born in the hospital in the new year. These gifts are solicited from the business people of Milk River, Warner and Coutts. The auxiliary presents an engraved cup. It also began serving the banquet for the hospital staff Christmas party in December, 1966.
