VNteekes Christmas week been proc 1 a i m Soulh Alberta Billiard Week by common consent. Certainly around Lhe Village of Cowley the snow not only fell but blew up into as big drifts as we have seen la re- cent years. It is hoped that all Cubs Scouts and Adventurers have been busy with your Group Good Turns and that many se- nior citizens and invalids have benefitted by your shovelling and errand running. As you enter the new year you will have that inner glow o[ satisfaction that comes with the performance of little tasks for others without being asked and without any charge to the recipients. Best wishes to the Tunis Boys' Parliament. This group pursues a course in many ways the same as our Scout move- ment. Here is a wonderful way to learn parliamentary proced- ures and other democratic pro- cesses thai would definitely tie in with the pursuit of Citizen- ship Badges some of our re- gional groups have made target in recent months. One of our family helped to begin the Boys' Parliament in Edmonton back around 1919. Furthermore yours truly was a Page, and a busy one, in the session of 1922. This by the way was made possible through ar- rarigemenls made by Clarence Campbell of hockey fame. It is noted the Lieutenant- Governor for the recent session has been our former regional president, Chief Judge L. S.

Council defends action on lots NATAL (HNS) District of Sparwood council has received a letter from the Sparwood De- velopment Company complain- ing about the municipality's proposed extension of the mo- bile home lots ir- lower Spar- wood. The company indicated in its letter it feels provision of these lots for mobile homes and unfair competition to the company's privately owned Park in the Elk Val- ley. Members of council were quick to defend their sale of the lots for mobile homes. A second lettci1 from the Spanvood Development Com- pany was also read at the meeting. This letter concerned dogs running at large at the company's Trailer Court in the Elk Valley. It requested ser- vices from the 'Sparwood pound. The council members pointed out that the area is served by the poundkeeper on frequent trips. Larry Dillon, president of the new Sparwood Pistol Club ap- peared before council to re- quest approval of the club's plans for an open range and a closed range building in the recreation area of Sparwood. A meeting of the club and the recreation commission will work out the details of the pro- ject. A letter was received from the Sparwood Lions Club en- quiring if the municipality would assume operation and maintenance of an ambulance which the club proposes to buy as its first 'community project. Council decided to have a committee meeting with both the Sparwood Volunteer Fire Brigade and with Urn Lions Club to determine if organiza- tional and operational details could be worked out. The new standardized build- ing code for all B.C. munici- palities was adopted by coun- cil. For information council re- ceived a copy of correspon- dence between Crows Nest In- dustries and Kaiser Resources Ltd., related to the location of a proposed logging road across the east of Spanvood along the base of the mountain. A request was received from New West Homes for the pur- chase of the lots remaining un- developed in Stage "B" of the Sparwood d e v e 1 opment plan. There are 10 to 12 lots re- maining in this category. Coun- cil decided that the lots could be made available for con- struction of housing by a devel- opment firm and accordingly they are to be advertised for sale to this and other interest- ed development firms.
