The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, January t, THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 O Fraser Hodgson Fun at a Coaldalc There wasn't very much activity around in the early 40's; everything was directed to winning the Se- cond World War and getting it over with. Whenever a party was held the gate fees or prizes were war saving stamps, cer- tificates, or bonds. A few organizations put on suppers or dances in the Coaldale hall once in a while, and sometimes a spontaneous dance happened. A small charge was made at the door to pay for lights and rent, guests brought their own lunch and half a dozen took turns supplying music. I did -a little along that line, along with Ed Ross, Scott and Anne Davis, Helen Gruenwald, and several others in the dis- trict. These hometown af- fairs were always a lot of fun, and we danced the THE ONLY ONE 99 "919 CONVENIENCE STORE PURPLE SPRINGS OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK three-step, heel and toe polka, french minuet, military schottische and various oldtime waltzes. Of course square dances came along every hour or so, called by local boys including Roy LaValley and Felix Ober. We often invited old friends from Lethbridge to our dances, and they always enjoyed themselves. Very little li- quor showed up at these af- fairs, not only because most permits were used up, but we found it wasn't necessary for a good time. CHICKENS I well remember one particular dance though I'm not just sure what year it was. Several came out from the city, Rose and Vern among them, but Ed and Nell couldn't make it on account of kids with colds.

Phone 327-6070 Instead of war stamps or bonds as door prizes, the organizers raffled off some bags of vegetables and some chickens. We sold Ed and Nell tickets and they won a pair of dressed chickens. Rose and Vem accepted them and agreed to deliver them next day. That was fine, until someone suggested trading the dressed fowl for a live pair in a crate. Rose and Vern's ride back to town got away without them somehow, so my wife and I drove them in. Vern sat on the back seat nursing the chicken crate, and we laughed all the way about the surprise Ed and Nell would get from their prize. We rang their doorbell quite a while before Ed came to the door half asleep. A couple of days later we heard the ending. Ed put the box just as he got it on the back basement stairs, near the back door. The two chickens happened to be roosters, and when daylight came they let the whole neighborhood in on the news. Ed had to put them down under the steps and cover them with paper to shut them up. Next day he had to find someone to butcher them for him, though he did think of axing their heads off in the gar- age at daylight that mor- ning. That wasn't the end of the episode because Vern had to send his suit to the cleaners. You can't nurse a crate of chickens very long without getting some of their by-product on your clothes. Also I had to get a deodorant stick to hang in my car, or endure a chicken-house smell for weeks. So, although our lit- tle stunt worked pretty well against Ed and Nell, a lot of it rubbed off on us. Which only goes to show a practical joke often has a recoil and a backfire. Tapeworm worry cattle Cattle may become in- fected with tapeworm by eating feed or water con- taminated with human ex- creta containing tapeworm eggs. It may occur because of poor hygiene on the farm or sewage sludge used as a fertilizer directly on pasture, according to the Director of Agriculture Canada's Contagious Diseases Division. The disease can be detected in cattle only by a post mortem Announcing OPEN HOUSE Tues., Jan. p.m. View the NEW 1974 CHRYSLERS and Plymouths At Your New Dealership EQUIPPED TO HANDLE ALL YOUR MOTORING NEEDS MECHANICAL, PARTS AND SERVICE DOOR PRIZES JOHN DEERE attend Farming Frontiers Farming Frontiers year's most outstanding farm- oriented film coming your way.
