Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 31, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, January 11, THI LITHMIDOI COLD LINE Gail Travis-of Sparwood is all set to place a call on the "cold line." This public telephone booth at Sparwood barely manages to rise above the snow. Other photos show new homes at Sparwood nestled in ihe deep snow and a trailer court in the Elk Valley where snow has been beaten back by shovels. Mountains in the area are completely covered. It's one of the roughest winters on record in the 'Pass area. Decoux Photo Ambulance abused PINCHER CREEK (Special) Ambulance service to the Peigan Reserve is being abused badly, said Archie Petrone, fire chief, when lie attended the re- cent town council meeting. He stated the ambulance drivers were willing to answer any legitimate call from the re- serve. He satd that since Peigan residents had recently installed phones the ambulance drivers were unable to differentiate be- tween nuisance calls and real ones. He said there were several Instances during the current bad weather when drivers had been called out, only to find on reaching the location that it was for something minor such as a cut finger, dnmkeness, or wanting transportation to town. In one incident, they were openly laughed at when they arrived, Chief Petrone said. Band councillors, also in at- tendance, were very concerned shout this problem. They said there were a few residents who are abusing the service. An ambulance on the re- serve, under control of the band council, might solve the problem. They could keep in closer contact with calls need- ing ambulance service. Mr. Petrone felt this would be good and offered any is- sistance that would be neces- sary to establish such a ser- vice. Fernie schools budget needs trim NATAL (HNS) Trustees of the Fernie school district have voted to trim their 1972 budget to a point where it will not go over the 110 per cent factor allowed by the department of education rules. Under these rules budgetary estimates in excess of 110 per cent of the basic education costs require publication of sylaw. Should one-twentieth of the voters object, then a refer- endum must be held. If the referendum is favorable, the ward may requisition the money from municipalities and rural areas in the normal fash- on, but should the referendum 'ail, the board must trim its budget. Mrs. Angela Smith speaks on education in Asian areas MAGRATH (HNS) Mrs. Angela Smith of Lethbridge spoke on education in under- privileged countries at the Ma- Drug seminar PINCHER CREEK (Special) An introductory drug edu- cation setiinar is planned for Thursday, Feb. 10, at p.m. in the MD Building. The speaker will be Mac Dal- gliesh of the Alberta Alco- holism and Drug Abuse Com- mission. Anyone interested In this seminar is welcome to attend. grath Home and School meet- ing m (he elementary school. Slides on the Philippines and India showed how improve- ments were achieved, especial- ly for the blind. The home and school project of milk in the schools has been tabled until the matter can be discussed with the divisional school board.

Motion to trim the budget at this stage was made by trustee Ted Stafford and seconded by trustee 0. McKenzie. The proposed budget, pre- sented at the last meeting by board secretary-treasurer E. T. Chambers, would have called for expenditure of in ex- cess the no per cent factor for a total of As Mr. Chambers must pre- sent the budget to Victoria by Feb. 15, trustees and school principals will have to move quickly to lop off the Sparwood Principal Harry Peebles objected to the mo- tion, saying that anything lop- ped off education at this stage will have to be replaced later In any event. Mr. Stafford said that he ia satisfied that there are some tilings in the budget which will not harm education if dropped. TV reception possibilities explored PINCHER CREEK (Special) A CPCN-TV official, Mr. Norquist, attended the recent town council meeting to put Forth a plan for a booster sta- tion for residents of Pincher Creek. The purpose of a booster sta- ,ion would be to improve the reception now received. As Pincher Creek is situated in a valley, the booster station at Burmls doesn't help recep- tion here. Mr. Norquist explained the maximum cost would be around but most likely much. less. A proposed tower and 110- volt, solid state translator with a five-year warranty could be installed. Upkeep would be small. An application would be ,iro- cessed through the government of Canada radio commission. A technical brief would be made to see what channels would bg available. This would be done by a professional en- gineer. Mr. Norquist said hopefully such a station would do away witli the high rrnsls. He felt rabbit ears or an aerial in the attics of homes would suffice In most cases. Incentives grant spurs 'Pass jobs BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) A local Incentives program grant to the Crows- nest Pass regional recreation board was announced recently by MP Allen Sulatycky, mem- ber for Rocky Mountain and parliamentary secretary to the minister of energy, mines and The announcement was made by Mr. Sulatycky on be- half of the Hon.

Under the local incentives Muriel Ragan issues plea from Fort FORT MACLEOD (Staff) The Fort Madeod Historical Association, the group that runs the museum fort, desires mem- oralia from the town's 60th anc 75th anniversary celebrations.

The artifacts will be used in 1974 centennial celebrations honoring the establishment of the first North West Mounted Police fort in the west In 1949 the town drew Inter- national acclaim when about visitors arrived during one summer week to watch and take part in celebrations.

Weekes 11Y Iliis Lime the idea that winter survival is import- ant has caught on. No untrained person would have a cliance with snow so deep ami cold so intense. To meet this very real chal- lenge, Scoulcr Kurt Seel, nov: in Calgary, is running a three- weekend course for adults seek- ing Ihe knowledge that permits them to take young folks to winter camp. The first weekend was held recently at Camp Gardiner. This was like Hie last Senator Buchanan training camp at Camp Impecsa. Phase 2 will be at Camp Gardiner. The third weekend has yet to be estab- lished; it will likely be a survi- val dip. Now all you happy duffers in the south-west of Alberta, tired of being indoors or of swinging the old snowshovel, I have news for you. Try for your Reader's Badge. This you can do as you get over your flu. How to do it? Gel a list oj books from your Akela teacher or librarian. Books should be at your grade level. Read these books thoroughly to know the stories and tlieir characters 60 well you can report on them. Keep a careful list showing when you read each book, ti- tles, publisher and a bit that tells what made the book worth reading. On top of this find out how In put en a bookcover. how to mend wrenched covers or loose pages. The emphasis is on reading. Everyone sooner or later ends up in hospital or has a rela- tive or pal go there. Most folks like s short visit and cheery news. Here's someLliing else you should know about a pal's stay in drydock. Give him sorre- thing to do, not just some fruit, a card or flowers. Akela can suggest books, ban. dicrafts or even little games for the shut-in. Sketch pads, puz- zles, modelling materials are great. Did you ever try weav- ing, French knitting or spool knitting? Older ones will appreciate heavy window sash cord or leather laces to weave the ever handy Turk's head woggle. Ti7 this fellows and it will fill those weary indoor hours. To you Akelas, Scoutmasters and Adventurer advisors, the time of Scout Guide Week comes in such a short time. Ideas long considered aro brought 'jp for reconsideration and action. Civic and municipal posts are manned by enterprising lads in the Scout movement. Here, by neat uniform and appealing per- sonality, the public is sold on Scouting. Church parades help to em- phasize the "Duty to God" as- pect of the movement. Uniforms, with their color and small appeal, transform a classroom and draw many an envious glance. Many a grip- ping tale of Lord Baden Pow- ell's adventures comes up. Ev. ery Cub, Scout or Ycstiifer should know as much as pos- sible about our founder. When there is no blizzard, get outdoors with skiis, toboggan, bobsled or sled. A sled we saw lately was made of old truck bumpers. When young we had a dandy made of angle iron properly cross-braced. You rural lads with'a work- shop or basement to work could make just such sleds. At shop classes, learn how to bend ski length narrow boards by immersing the bending end in hot water. The best skiis we ever had were made with a jackplane. All we had was toe bands but you could get proper harness. For those who love the newer art of snow rig riding get to know then practice all safety rules. Don't be an unfortunate statistic! Now to all you smilers, learn what to do for frostbite. Above all don't go in to the heat with ears or nose still frozen. Rub the affected part with fingers lightly. No snow rub! delightful bit of rhyme non- sense: C. A. Weekes is quite the fellow, If TO don't send his cheque he lets out a bellow. But when we read his scouting stuff, We wonder why we take his guff.
