MARTIN Special Correspondent PICTURE BUTTE - Many residents here will travel this week to Iron Springs for the 20th Annual Missionary Rally, to be held in the public school today through Saturday. Several churches in the area are co-operating in this year's Rally, and plans are well in hand for the visit of Rev. Dave Esau, who has been serving with the Evangelical Alliance Mission in Spain. Musical 'guests include the Knelson Family and the Men-nonite Brethren Quartet, both groups from Coaldale, and the Christian Reformed Church Choir from Iron Springs. When the late Rev. Harold K. Germaine, serving then with the Soudan Interior Mission, visited Iron .Springs in 1953 for the first Missionary Rally there, he was so impressed with the church co-operation in the area that he suggested such an event be held from year to year. Since then it has developed into an annual event, attended yearly by people from Picture Butte, Iron Springs, Turin, Enchant, Coaldale, Lethbridge and Nobleford. The rally committee feels confident that this year's rally will again do much "for the cause of Christ" and the promotion of missions, both at home and abroad. Enthusiasm is being expressed by all concerned for the ministry of the guest musicians and Mr. Esau, as a fitting celebration of 20 years of missionary emphasis in the area, on a co-operative basis - very appropriate, in the light of Key '73.'

Historical help needed from Nobleford oldtimers Central laundry trial wins AHSC approval By MARJORIE SCHOOF Special Correspondent MONARCH-It is hoped that oldtimers from near and far will send information that will assist in the compiling of a Nc-bleford-Monarch history. Even before the soil drifting began in the 1930s some of the early settlers were not too hopeful, as the following remarks from an oldtimer now residing in British Columbia show. "1912 - all we ever seemed to hear was of poverty, nobody makes anything here. It is so dry nothing much ever grows except occasionally, wheat. The wind never ceases to blow. Even the Indians know enough to move out. Young people coming here to make a home are making a sad mistake." Regardless of the above, this couple settled, raised a family and lived in the village until their retirement many years later. Nobleford became a busy little town and now has many lovely homes and. several places of business. Besides the Noble Blades and Cultivators plant, which of course gave the town a real boost, there is a super-market, hardware, post office,, garage and service station, restaurant, farm supplies, curling rink and large modern school. The surrounding area boasts many farms with modern homes, all attesting to the stuff farmers are made of. Li spite of so many dry, nonproductive years, these farmers persisted, along with the town businesses and out of this grew today's community.
