He said John Lackey of Edmonton, a PSS official, reviewed PSS policies at a recent meeting of towns officials at Claresholm. The MD would contribute about if it took part, said Coun. Daley.

South In short KC hall property may sell FOF1T MACLEOD (HNS) The Fort Macleod Historical Association is negotiating with the Holy Cross Roman Catholic Church here to buy the property on which the Knights of Colum- bus Hall is located, the annual meeting learned. Speaking to 60 people attending the association's public dinner, immediate past president Dr. John Walker said if the association acquires this land, it will own almost an entire block around the Fort Museum. The association has assets worth about The 1975 budget totals The museum now has a new building for Indian artifacts and RCMP effects. The east end will be used as a meeting room. John Stevens was elected president. Taber permits at million TABER (HNS) Taber building permits issued during 1974 topped the million mark for the first time on record, authorizing construction totalling at the end of December as compared with for the previous 12- month period. A break-down shows residential construction at for the year, representing 59 single family dwellings, nine duplexes, and a number of building additions and alterations. Last year's total was Commercial construction accounted for as com- pared with institutional as compared with and industrial a mere as compared with for 1973. December permits stood at a low but 50 per cent better than a year ago when building starts were reported at An office and showroom addition to Highway Service Ltd. at 4518 50th St. was the major item at Two to attend conference CLARESHOLM (Staff) Secretary Treasurer Ruben Hartfelder and Assistant Secretary Treasurer Warren (Buck) Volstad Wednesday were authorized to attend the Provincial Agricultural Service Board Conference. It will be held Feb. 25, 26 and 27 at the Holiday Inn, Lethbridge. The zone one regional meeting for agricultural field men will be held the afternoon of Feb. 24 at the Plant Science Building, Lethbridge Community College. Agricultural Field Man Richard Berringer told the MD council the perennial weed control regulations have been amended to have farmers and the MD share costs equally. Prior to this, MDs and counties paid two thirds of the cost. Warble control supported CLARESHOLM (Staff) The Willow Creek Municipal District council Wednesday supported its agricultural service board's request to Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer that the warble control program be made compulsory province wide. Agricultural field man Richard Berringer told council the program has progressed to where 60 out of 65 local governments are now participating. The goal is to eliminate the warble fly, he said. Mr. Berringer said the board is unanimous in feeling that if the program is not compulsory, it will be allowed to slide. "It would appear to be unfortunate when Alberta was so close, yet lost an opportunity to become a warble free province." Carload of twine contemplated CLARESHOLM (Staff) About one full carload of baler twine will likely be ordered by the Willow Creek Municipal District if the price and quality are right, agriculture field man Richard Berringer told the MD council Wednesday. It will be ordered through the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties. Improvement committee elects BELLEVUE (CNP Walter Price of Bellevue has been named president of the newly-formed Bellevue Neighborhood Improvement Program citizens committee. Ray Stitson is treasurer and Harry Jepson secretary. The committee will investigate programs suggested for Bellevue under the Neighborhood Improve- ment Program, a three-way program funded by federal, provincial and municipal authorities. Airport operation delayed for municipality approval CRANBROOK (Special) The Regional District of East Kootenay won't assume the operation of small regional airports until member' municipalities give approval. If municipalities request the RDEK to assume this respon- sibility, it will apply to the province to take over airport administration. One area in great need for airport facilities is the Crowsnest Pass, RDEK direc- tors agreed. Cliffe Rhodes, federal ministry of transport representative, told RDEK representatives from the 'Pass area and Invermere the ministry is fully aware of the need for a new airport to serve the 'Pass. The department is prepared to assist with development once the sponsor of the pro- ject is decided. He said once it is determin- ed whether the City of Fernie or the RDEK will ad- ministrate the new airport, the ministry can proceed with its financial and planning assistance. Referendum wording agreement reached An agreement has been hammered out between Lethbridge Community College students on the proposed referendum on building fund fees. Tony Dimnik, an LCC stu- dent opposed to collection of student union building fund fees, said he is satisfied with the wording agreed on in a meeting Tuesday with Student Council President Hal Gallup. Mr. Gallup said items acceptable to those opposing the fee were included in a draft of the referendum. He did not want to release the wording until it is finalized. A petition circulated last semester at LCC called for a referendum on abolition of the per student per semester building fund fee. Mr. Dimnik said a contract agreed on with the LCC board More district page 25 of governors, to collect a minimum building fee of per student per semester, should not be signed until after the referendum. Mr. Gallup said earlier this week that the Fort Whoop-Up Building being renovated as a Student Union Building has an estimated life of 10 years. Another SUB will be needed then. "We must have some means by which we can provide that he said. The board of governors will expect some effort -by students to provide the new building in 10 years, he said: The Fort Whoop-Up building is owned by the board of governors and rented by the council, he said. Bob Babki, chairman of the LCC board of governors, said the contract with the student council is "completely though not ac- tually signed. He will sign it when he sees it, because it has been passed by the board of governors, he said. The only aviation facility iri the 'Pass is an emergency landing strip one quarter of a mile east of the Saratoga Processing Ltd. sulphur plant at Sentinel. Nearest airports to the 'Pass are at Pincher Creek and Fernie. The 'Pass area is mostly served by the Fernie which Fernie Mayor Vern Uphill termed "totally inade- quate." The Invermere village coun- cil would like to turn its air- strip over to the RDEK, coun- cil learned. If the RDEK assumes the airport function, the proposal is to build a new foot airstrip in the Hosmer area. The 'Pass would then have a good airstrip within 25 miles of its major centres. A takeover of the Invermere airport would enable the RDEK to undertake im- provements. The ministry of transport would, provide grants to develop the airports. Mr. Rhodes said there are different classes of air facilities with a different grant basis for each class. It would appear the new Crowsnest Pass airport would fall under an industrial class. In that case, the ministry will pay for 80 per cent of development costs to a max- imum of Mr. Rhodes estimated it would cost between and to build a new air- field in the Hosmer area, ex- cluding land purchase. Referring to Fording Coal, Kaiser Resources and Crowsnest Industries, Mr. Uphill said the RDEK must push for an airport to serve three major industries. "I think initially we should have a by 100-foot runway which can be expand- ed to said Mr. Uphill. "We should have a ter- minal and hangar facilities and a parking area."
