The tutor has a file of cards with the vowel sounds, other combinations of letters, and sample words to teach the pupil the skills of sight reading. This tutorial system has a definite step-by-step procedure. Each sound is learned in proper order according to proven scientific studies on reading.

Bland, The Hcrald- District Lions Club will develop green strip on creek ELKFORD (HNS) The Elkford Lions Club has decided to proceed with developing the green belt area along Boivin Creek in the village. The area is now the graveyard for old tires, broken bottles and debris. The project is designed for construction over three years and will eventually have a water fountain, fish pond, park benches, barbecue pits and flower beds. The first summer's work will be taken up with cleaning the area of the debris and broken trees A four-foot chain link fence will be placed around the park. Matt Fennuik is chairman of the project. His committee comprises Gwyn Hughes and Bill Grainger. Donations balance They will work closely with Aid. Grace Malnarich and Bruce Scott of McCarter, Naire and partners. This firm has been commissioned by the village to co-ordinate the entire recreation program for the "instant" town. books CRANBROOK (HNS) The Dr. F. W. Green Memorial Home had a deficit in 1973 but donations of helped balance the books. Revenue tallied up from the previous year, but wage and food cost increases used up the income. The home houses 31 resident boarders all year. Feb. 28 was set as probable completion date for the new two-floor wing which will double the guest capacity to 62. This is being financed through a CMHC loan to the formerly debt-free society. When the final building expenditure is determined this will alter the balance sheet. It shows in assets, of which has been spent so far on an estimated for the expansion. Kiwanis, Kinsmen and Kinnette cash donations of about total will furnish three new rooms, and other service clubs have pledged. The four self-contained lower floor units will be unfurnished except for stove and fridge.

Grant to revive provincial co-ordinator of mental retardation services, and Don Bmgham, director of programs for the department of human resources. They met here recently with about 16 area representatives. Mr. Bingham says the staff of the school will be employees of the society and will be recruited locally The actual programming of the school will be created by the local society with consultation from the department of human resources and the mental health branch of the department of health. Any necessary professional services, such as a psychiatrist or a medical doctor, will be provided by the community. Dr. Bland said some larger facilities have the advantage of better and more "professional programs" but that schools the size of the proposed one at St. Eugene School would put the patients closer to boarding homes which is the ultimate aim of the program in this case. Dr. Richard Foulkes recently released his report on mental health facilities in the province after a one-year study He recommended all large mental hospitals in B.C be torn down. His report also said there is general agreement that long- term stays in mental institutions do more harm than good to patients. Dr. Bland said transportation will be provided for the school, likely in the form of a bus. Social activities will be integrated where possible with other community facilities He said the present facilities of the community and the new school will "compliment one another." Dr. Bland and Mr Bingham agreed the school will co- ordinate closely with the community's mental health facilities and "will be an added resource" to the community. Dr. Bland said the school will not require highly trained personnel, such as a psychiatrist, but would be staffed by semi-professional people. These people would have experience in the field and possibly there would be one or two psychiatric nurses. He said the aim is to create a "community" type of environment for the patients to bring them closer to being able to transfer to a boarding type of home which, he said, would provide a "closer, family-type of atmosphere." chamber Sportsman deplores CLARESHOLM (HNS) Town councillor Dan LeGrandeur, noting an active chamber of commerce is an asset to any community, spurred a town grant of to revive the Claresholm Chamber of Commerce. The 'money will be taken from the business tax fund if the chamber presents a program of activities to town council. Cpun. Le Grandeur said the business tax was instituted primarily for the betterment of the business community but the funds have been going into general revenue. Coun. Willard Henker opposed the motion. He said the chamber, for all intents and purposes, is defunct. Food services staff honored CLARESHOLM Members of the food services staff of the Claresholm Care Centre were honored recently by chef Stan Stoklosa for long service. Receiving long service certificates of commendation were Harold Atkins, Ryerson McLeod, Gladys Oberten, assistant chef Frank Penich and Maddie Clark. killing without purpose STIRLING (HNS) Sportsman Alva Bair recently told the Stirling Parent- Teacher Association about wildlife preservation. "It just doesn't make sense to kill anything without a purpose." He suggests hunting is needed as a management tool, however, sportsmanship is also needed. Mr Bair said it makes more sense to shoot unwanted coyotes and use their hides than to destroy the whole animal with poison Mr. Bair's film slides of the Milk River territory revealed great beauty of native prairie and the Sweetgrass Hills. There are about 11 species of big game in this area as well as several smaller animals. Some who have only been here during the past 15 years are the raccoon, fox, and cottontail-rabbit. Many of the game birds have gone because over-grazing of cattle has destroyed their habitat so they are over-exposed to animals and hunters CUSTOM Al SERVICE Bread Exotic wid percentage cattle to Purabrada f) Newly constructed Dry Lot for AI Service Government Licensed Technicians Semen stored at Farm some space for calving For Information contact: JERRY KEUJER Phono 345-4749 Box 1001, CoaMale, Alberta TOK OLO Only 2 Days Left During Advance Lumber's Great JANUARY No order too large or too small.
