Smoky's last tram was th. a.m. from Medicine Hat, the dayl ner from that city. -Photos by Ed South African animal expert Dr. Jan Bonsma will address south Alberta cattlemen at the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion Monday at a.m. Dr. Bonsma has become world famous for his ability to show cattlemen how to visual- ly select bulls and cows for fertility. After many years of expe- ience he is able to relate visual anatomical and phys- ological features to the breed- ing potential of the animal. His ability to look at a cow and then relate its sex history and also its future potential is almost uncanny, said Chris Mills, secretary of the West- ern Stock Growers' Associa- tion. Mr. Mills said Dr. Bonsma is Miles, Smoky, take different tracks i_ ni fft 9 otia "If you're not going to hack out those ash and elm seedlings in the back yard, call parks superintendent Bill Brown and we'll donate them to the city free. The people at 253 15th St. N., are going to do the same thing." MOVING? CALL By JIM WILSON Staff Writer "Smoky" and "MUes" have a lot of years of railroading be- hind them, and it spices their talk, their attitudes their very lives with a special atmos- phere. They retired Friday along with CP Rail's last Leth- bridge passenger runs. "Smoky" is a nickname giv- en years ago to Sam Shaw, a 65 year old CP Kail engine- man. It is said that when Smoky1 lit up his corncob and stood be- side the old steam engines, it was difficult to tell which was the pipe and which was the train's chimney. Sam retired from CP Friday morning with the a.m. train to Lethbridge from Medi- cine Hat. He'd spent a total of 49 years on the trains, watch- ing them change from, the "small" 50 car steam pulled chains to the, more modern ISO- car diesels. He started in Cranbrook in 1923 when he was 16 years old in the railway's most junior "wiper." A wiper had the dubious priv- ilege of lighting up the engines, cleaning out the fireboxes and generally "messing Smoky says. He spent some time working his way up the ranks, and final- ly became a fireman the man responsible for keeping the train's engine running and also helping to watch for whatever problems might appear on the tracks ahead. He moved to Medicine Hat in 1927, and came to Lethbridge in 138. In 1945 he was "wrote up' to engineer, following success in a number of examinations. "I got to take runs all over the place, particularly when I was on spare board and they'd send me Smoky says. bus. Ho started on the dayliner about four years ago, having worked on it as a relief engi- neer for several years prev- think that's the area I've seen change most, he says.

"MUes" 'Road house or Joyd, as most people know him says he came by his nickname because he used to be fond of saying his job "is nothing but happiness as long as we're making our miles. Miles retired after bringing in the p.m. dayliner from Calgary. He started working for UP Kail June 22, 1922 at the age of 15, in Penticton, B.C. He start- ed right in as a fireman first big challenge." He moved to Calgary in 1928 then to Lethbridge in 1941. In 1945 he too was "wrote up" to engineer. He has 49 years o' CP service. Most of his work has been within the province. "I fired out of Calgary In all he says enthusias tically.

Sunday will be a busy day or Time. With the Agricultural nstitute of Canada convention Larting Monday, an estimated 50 to 200 persons will arrive y air in a three-day period. Tune owner Walter "Stubb" [Joss is facing the situation vith equanimity. He estimates a peak load of about 55 arrivals to be transported from Calgary to Lethbridge Sunday night and feels sure the airline can handle them with no real iroblems. Time has four planes, with a total seating capacity of 42. These will all go to Calgary delegates to Lethbridge hey arrive. Mr. Ross says n one will have more than a two hcur delay at Calgary.

Deputy Mayor Rex Little said he was not willing to speculate on whether council would decide on another extension. Up until the time of the ex- piry of the building permit at noon Thursday the city had the right to repurchase the land at the same amount Marathon paid Dr. Bonsma spoke to a group of cattlemen in Lacombe S'at- urday. 'It used to be a challenge to our skill as a fireman or an gineer to decide to pass up a ater tank or a coal drop, ant t a few hours off your run. "That way you'd change your meets' (meeting a train com- g toward you, so being side- acked) and see how efficient ou could be." Today, Miles says, that's all one there are no water or stops because diesels "run orever" without fueling up. "I think my best memories are firing up the old type en- pies on the Kettle Valley run southern B.C.) but it was 11 fun, even the past two years n the dayliner here." Miles says he and his wife Dorothy plan to stay in Leth- iridge in their home at 1607 th Ave. S., but will likely pend the three deep winter months in Arizona every year. "We'll also take in a little travel time, and we hope to get o Europe this year."
