The festival runs March 30 to April 2. March 1 tries. is deadline for en- resolve several problems existing be- j tween the tv.o organizations. This bylaw sets forth an elec- trical rate that allows some saving for the school.

The recreation committee ra- formed the council of a pro- posed survey and the availabil- ity of technical advice front the Oldman River Planning Com- mission in reference to the cre- ation of a 400-meter track in the north portion of the present Lion's Park. The town council and the school board have been negotiating land transfer and sale to create the area to facili- tate track and field. It is proposed that a lot of the work be done with the joint, town and municipal recreation councils as soon as possible. A survey is being done in. the town to form the basis for submis- sion for the provincial govern- ment's recreation grants. Considerable discussion arose from the problem of the early spring run-off. Suggestions .for the' improvement of the water supply for the town were upstream water development and also possible water treat- ment. The upstream water de- velopment will be investigated by correspondence to the Water Resources Branch and also through the Oldman River Planning Commission. This development would not only assure a better urban water supply but would also allow downstream flood con- trol and the creation of recrea- tion facilities. Engineers will be contacted in reference to water treatment. One of the problems is the high rate of consumption in the town. The daily consump- tion is approximately gallons per day and recently rose to gallons per day. Council was informed of a re- cent meeting of the board for the local nursing home area. A letter had been received from the Minister of Health stating that a 40-bed nursing home is authorized with provision for an additional 10 beds if the de- mand requires.
