Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Hearings resume on power line in ^Pass Monday BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) - Crowsnest Pass citizens, adamantly opposed to the proposed location of a Calgary Power transmission line through the 'Pass, will make their feelings known to the Energy Resources Conservation Board at hearings here Monday and Tuesday. The sessions will be held at the Blairmore Elks Hall. A brief will be presented to the board to communicate "the views of the majority" of citizens here in several 'Pass centres and the Improvement District No. 5. Looking to Sparwood for an example, the brief says: "A conspicuous example of the impact of a major transmission line on the landscape can be viewed 20 miles west of the 'Pass at Sparwood, B.C., where, less than two years ago a new right-of-way was carved along the mountainside that overlooks the town on the west. "The people of the 'Pass do not want a similar desecration in their area." The brief is signed by committee members Wallace Aebli, councillor, Blairmore; Chester H. Allen, chairman, Improvement District No. 5 advisory council; and Mayor John Holyk of . Coleman. Residents here think the proposed 240 KV transmission line will cut a wide swath through southern Alberta's scenic 'Pass area. Mayor Holyk says "an overwhelming majority of those present at a recent meeting of landowners and elected representatives concluded that Calgary Power's proposed 240 KV transmission line should not be permitted anywhere in the Crowsnest Pass area." This area has been set out by the 'Pass committee as, at the very least, all lands lying six miles north and south of the Crowsnest River. The brief says: - The Crowsnest Pass is a very confined area, already crowded and fragmented by existing transportation and utility systems. All of the proposed alternatives submitted by Calgary Power would tend to worsen this situation. -Although it was felt very emphatically by those present (at a meeting of 'Pass citizens) that any line must avoid the populated areas of the 'Pass, the Frank Slide, Crowsnest Lake and crossing Highway 3, it was also noted that any detours to the north or south would have adverse effects on either the proposed provincial park or the views of Crowsnest Mountain. -Any line through the 'Pass area will be a permanent feature on the landscape. It would affect not only the present residents, but could have negative effects for at least the next half century, particularly on the tourism and recreational potential of the area. It is suggested this is not a desirable legacy to pass on to future generations. -The assumption that the line must terminate at Phillips Pass is questionable. Instead, it is suggested the objective be defined as the need to link Calgary Power's existing system at Peigan, (west of Fort Macleod) with B.C. Hydro's existing system at Sparwood in British Columbia. Therefore an evaluation of alternate routes in this larger context should be prepared and presented to the residents of the 'Pass. -Like Banff and Jasper National Park, the Crowsnest Pass boasts spectacular natural scenery and contains a major east-west highway linking it directly to the rest of Canada. It is felt the 'Pass is thus just as vital a part of our country's Rocky Mountain playground as the better publicized national parks and should be just as carefully protected against incompatible developments. Thuraday, January 17, 1974 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-15 The Herald- District Chamber centennial dinner includes century-old menu Highways dept. plans Carseland bridge work VULCAN - Highways Minister Copithorne has informed MLA Ray Speaker of the Little Bow constituency that the Carseland Bridge on Highway 24 is scheduled for replacement. Replacement was scheduled in the department's five-year projections and will be advanced on priorities within that program. Traffic counts are being monitored at the bridge and may have an effect on the replacement schedule, depending on growth patterns. The highway north of the bridge is constructed to a lesser pavement thickness standard than that south of the bridge. The load limit on the north side of the bridge is 59,000 pounds, except in the frozen period of winter when it is raised to 72,000 pounds. Management club names president PINCHER CREEK - The Foothills Chapter of the Industrial Management Club of Canada has announced that B. M. Sawyer of Shell Canada Limited has succeeded M. J. LaBrie, also of Shell, as president. Mr. LaBrie has been transferred to Calgary. Bob Williams of Phillips Cables of Coleman succeeds Mr. Sawyer as first vice-president; and Russ Rowledge of Johnson's Sawmills Limited of Cowley replaces Mr. Williams as second vice-president. Roy Paton of Phillips and Emerson Brown of Canada Manpower remain as secretary and treasurer. Traffic on this piece of pavement is being monitored but it is likely that the lower load limit will have to be retained for some time. Gas co-op to be founded VULCAN - The Sunshine Gas Co-operative will be founded Friday at a meeting in the Blackie Community Centre. To date, $70,000 has been collected from farmers in the area from east of High River to Blackie, Herronton, Mossleigh, Arrowwood and Milo districts, south to an east-west line seven miles south of Vulcan. A total of $17,000 of this money is from those who have paid their $1 membership and $25 deposit and the balance from those who have paid their full $1,700 share. There was a sign-up of about 77 per cent in the co-op area which now constitutes between 600 and 700 farmers. Nominated for directors are Gordon Newman, Barry Bricker, Ralph Oberholtzer, George Gooch, David Wark, Pat Roe, Fred Payee, Gordon McKay, John Green, Milton Ryan, Alan Hurl, Gilbert Vooys, Gordon Leadbeater, Ervin Brown and Blain Middleton. Trustee named FERNIE - John Betenia of Galloway has been re-elected chairman of the Fernie school district board. Mr. Betenia was first elected chairman last year following the resignation of former chairman Doug McDonald. Fernie trustee Mike Wasnock was elected vice-chairman of the board. FORT MACLEOD (HNS) -Ombudsman G. B. McClellan, former chief of the RCMP, will be served the kind of food eaten 100 years ago when he attends the Fort Macleod and District Chamber of Commerce annual banquet here Friday. * The Alberta ombudsman, who has distinguished this new office in the same manner he ran the world-renowned RCMP, will be CHIEF JIM SHOT BOTH SIDES Lodge gives service pins BROOKS - Four life memberships and a number of service pins will be presented to members of the Brooks Elks Lodge here Tuesday. Life memberships will be presented to Albert Jolitz, A. M. (Fred) Patriquin, William Squirrell and Y. S. Sparrow. Eligible for 30-year pins are Mr. Sparrow, Jack Edwards and Leslie Philpott. Twenty-five year pins will be presented to Donald Anderberg, Alex Carlson, Orland Carlson, Herman Grosfield, Edward Lewendon, Stanley Meers, Frank Neufeld, E. M. Potter, Tony Sky and A. M. Patriquin. eating the same fare the first members of the NWMP enjoyed when the town and the west was young. The chamber banquet menu lists such choice items as Macleod Hotel stew, spuds, bannock, mom's apple pie, and sikseekeemi - neetahpa -sikseekeemi - Blackfoot for tea and coffee (dark water and black water). Chamber president Andy Mackay had help from a Peigan girl in composing the menu and she thought it would be appropriate to serve tea and coffee. Highlight of the evening will be presentations to Mr. McC ellan of a set of gold cuff links, (only 20 sets were made and Prince Phillip received a pair), and a life membership to the Fort Macleod Historical Society. The banquet is a Fort Macleod Centennial event. It will be held in the Elks Hall here and it is expected a capacity crowd of 500 people will sit down to the historical dinner. Mayor George Buzunis will bring greetings from the Town of Fort Macleod. Chamber president Andy Mackay will speak, there will be an election of officers, and then Mr. McClellan will address the gathering. MLA Leighton Buckwell, one of this town's many Centennial organizers and supporters, will be on hand. The list of head table guests is long and impressive. Among the dignitaries will be chiefs of the Blood and Peigan Indian reserve bands, Chief Jim Shot Both Sides of the Bloods and Chief Maurice MacDougall of the Peigans. The RCMP and the Indians in southern Alberta have enjoyed an enduring friendship which began 100 years ago. Mr. McClellan is certain to enjoy the company of the two CHIEF MAURICE MACDOUGALL Cardston guide Mike Dawson shows prize-winning elk Fish and game officer Tom Bateman admires trophies Anti-hunter members increasing *at alarming rate^ More criticism of hunters expected LUNDBRECK (CNP Bureau) - "Hunters are going to be subjected to a tremendous amount of criticism in the next few years by members of the non-hunting public." Tom Bateman, chief of Southern Alberta's hunter training and officer of the Fish and Game Division of the Alberta department of lands and forests, made the forecast to encourage the 300 sportsmen who attended the Willow Valley Trophy Clubs' judging day to do something about it.

'"We who enjoy this recreation," he said, "are continually placed in a defensive position as far as our sport is concerned." He said there are three organizations on this continent which have dedicated themselves to the abolition of hunting. "If you are inclined to dismiss these movements as fads," he admed, "please remember that less than 20 per cent of the residents in this province take part in the sport of hunting or fishing." He said there are three groups of people involved - hunters, non-hunters and anti-hunters. The numbers of people in the second group are decreasing and the numbers of persons in the third group are increasing at an alarming rate. The growth of the anti-hunting movement has been fostered by: - environmental awareness of this country. - the fact that guns are frowned upon as being dangerous. - some vandals who disguise themselves as hunters and have a license for their willful damage. - activities of a percentage of the hunters in the field who have virtually no purpose for being out except to make a kill, regardless of the techniques they use. The solution to the problem, Mr. Bateman felt, was to clean up the provincial game act. "We are going to have to eliminate in some way the vandals and others who call themselves hunters and who are destroying our sport and our image. "The hunter in this area 200 years ago was the most important and most respected member of his community. He has a modern counterpart. This is the man who is most successful in his business endeavours today." Around the turn of the century, the idea of hunting for harvest alone changed in Alberta to hunting for recreation. About this time, Mr. Bateman said, a code' of ethics for the developing sport began to evolve. Unfortunately, however, the code applies only to the sportsmen and not to gunners. A code of ethics is very flexible and is formulated and practised by every individual to fit his own needs. Mr. Bateman encouraged sportsmen to take the time to explain to non-hunters and the anti-hunters the reasons why We've Moved to 439-Mayor Magrath Dr. (In Holiday Villag*) . * Rent-A-Car * Rent-A-Truck Doug Kathrens-Manager PHORO 328*8333 chiefs.

Mr. McClellan was appointed ombudsman on Sept. 1,1967, and was reappointed in 1972. He has the honor and distinction of being the first ombudsman in Canada.

The sign will be a painted, plastic and laminated wood sign and it will be illuminated for night visibility by overhead lights. The large sign, its erection and its lighting will initially cost approximately $1,500. The chamber also heard a proposal to hold a rodeo to be held in conjunction with the Sparwood July 1 celebration.

He recommended hunters take only trophy animals and not kill everything in sight. He suggested that sportsmen attempt to understand the feelings of these two groups and to bear in mind their information is emotional rather than actual. He encouraged the local sportsmen to take a young person hunting and to get him started on the right foot by showing him how good sportsmanship and good hunting Here Are the ANSWERS for your NEWS QUIZ PART I: 1-b; 2-smaller; 3-a; 4-b; 5-coal PART II: 1-d; 2-a; 3-e; 4-c; 5-b PART III: 1-c; 2-e; 3-a; 4-d; 5-b PICTURE QUIZ: Francis Pym PAINT 20% to 74% Off Pricn Eltactiv* Through Jan. 31tl Spred Satin gai 9.95 Spred Lustre gai 10.95 Spred Lo Lustre gai 10.95 Spred Latex gai 11.95 No. 444 Interior Latex Gil............... 4.95 No. 444 s�ml Clot* Enamel gh 5.95 All Pratt a LamlMrt PAINTS Clearing at ____ 20% Off MiM-Mixed - Discontinued Lines - and Overstocked Items All cliaring froin99C qi- and3.95 gallon Room lot Wallpaper Sale 50% Off FERGUSON PAINT LTD. 318-7th Streets.
