Old days coming to life PINCHER CHEEK (Special) The Pincher Creek Histori- cal Society Bookwriting Commit- tee is entering its final stages in the process of collecting stor- ies. The old days of 1874-1911 are really coming to life as it's hard to believe they could. The committee is hoping that there won't be some with re- grets that their story isn't there when the book is published. With the deadline now extend- ed to Jury 14, the editors feel there is time for all stragglers to reach the finish line. Stories should be sent to Mrs. Da White, Box 272, Pincber Creek. Many months of work will yet be required after the stories have all come in, but the "Chinook Country" of Pincber Creek should make delightful reminiscing wben it is fjciafo and in the joint use of facilities to enable complete totalijier equipment at the smaller tracks. Sidney Pratt, racing director for Canada Agriculture, Ottawa said that such organization has been long needed. He dis- cussed various types of com- puter equipment, suggesting that suitable machines could be made available for the 1974 season at an approximate cost of He said that the equipment, including ticket machines, be mounted in, a trailer with a self contained power plant, and could be used at all tracks regardless of size. Tne larger tracks would need addt tional ticket machines which would "plug in" to the main control. The three directors of the Al- berta Racing Commission ad- vised that a grant of would be made available to cover organization costs, and that rebate of all or a part of the pari mutuel tax would be made for project use.
