Ginj was out toboganning in the hills behind her Blairmore home and was accomp- anied by her pup. The snow clung to the dogs fur and packed so tight that he was unable to walk and had to be carr- ied home. A warm bath solved the problem. School bus insurance cost nearly doubles at Fernie NATAL (HNS) Board secretary E. T. Chambers of the Fernie school district has informed trustees that school bus insurance costs will rise from to However, a good performance by the buses may drop that cost considerably by the year end, since 30 per cent of the new premium will be payable "dependent on experience" during the course of the year.

Don Hartwig, district superintendent of schools, said he felt most of the Elkford teachers will leave "on account of complete refusal by Fording Coal to make housing available for teachers."
