They were attondmg a school reunion held recently in BarnwelL__________________________________-----------------------_ By CHRISTINE PU1IL StafI Writer BARNWELL The only time our school class would see each other was at funerals, so we decided to have a reunion on a happy occasion, said Ar- villa Anderson, during the re- union of the class from the one- roomed schoolhouse in Barn- well. The reunion, which was We first since the one roomed school closed in 1917 was or- ganized by Arvilla Anderson and Sybil Anderson of Barn- Wanda McCaugherty and Belli Johnson of Lethbridge. The oldest child of each fam- ily was contacted and wore spread like wild-fire of the up- coming reminiscing party, to be held in the new Barn w e 1 school. Well, new to them any way. "Well hello, Ruby How long it has said one over joyed school mate. "Do you re member when I filled your flou uckel with rocks and you aught laughed another. "I bet students have no more un on this basketball floor than vc had on ours. My, the things hat used to go on in that little giggled a former schoolgirl. What have you been doing since I saw you in Grade 6? "Well, I retired and then I retired laughed Ralph x; Baron, now of Salt Lake City, Utah. "A sure sign of getting old is forgetting yesterday and re- membering 65 years said Clifford Peterson of Lethbridge Master of Ceremonies at an im- promptu concert. "I didn't know how old I was getting until 1 saw everyone joked an other. The school was first starlet in 1907 in the home of Jed Johnson with Dessa Johnson now Mrs. Fairbanks, as teach er. A school house was built, i 1908 (white not red) and th enrolment grew until a divisio had to be pul in, for Iwo leach rs in 1915, wilh Grade 1 lo a. The liltle school house was fi- nally too small and a new four- roomed brick one was biiilt in 917. No program back in school days was complete with o u' Ja'vy Howard singing so neith- er could a concert now do wilh- out him. He sang with much encouragement from long-time listeners. Comparing grandchildren, re- tirement abodes and fond mem- ories highlighted the day for the 40 former pupils who have passed many milestones since they were last logelher. VISITS PARENTS IRON SPRINGS (HNS) Following a two-week vacation on Ihe west coast, Miss Pat Boras is visiting at the home of her parents before return- ing to her third year of nurs- ing in St. Michael's Hospital, Lelhbridge. (Designed and Produced in Canodo Sinco 18721 And at Burdett BURDETT Peals from, the old hand rung school bell had approximately 70 former stu- denls of Ihe Ballman School, nine miles south of Burdetl, scurrying to their places, dur- ing a reunion of all pupils of the school which operated from 1911 to 1941. Visions of a school reunion first started in Phoenix, Ari- zona after a session of "remem- ber when" reminiscing, between John Johnson of Burdett, Rod- ney Jacobson of Minneapolis, Palmer Johnson of Nelson, B.C. and Stanley Johnson of Cal- gary. It took six months to trace the names and where abouts of many of the original pupils. Walter Strom undertook the quest from the homefront in BurcMt and succeeded in col- lecting one time students from all the nooks and crannies, the wind had led them. "Let's see, who are was most often heard, as face.1 once so familiar, found each other so changed. "You used o be so tall and laugh- ed a surprised woman. "That's only because you're grown up was the manly reply. "I would have run when I leard the school bell, bui 1 wasn't near the old school barn so I didn't know which way to laughed Harry Strom, jremier of Alberta, a former jupil of the school. The playful nostalgia con- tinued after a supper at which nearly 200 were seated. Mrs. Ralph Dillenbeck of Bow Is- land remembered when Rodney Jacobsen and John Johnson found a shotgun shell which could "not" be wasted and set it off over the heads of the pupils in the school yard. "I want everyone to know that the shy but conniving brain behind most of the pranks was caught at, was none othei than Louie Johnson" laughet Rod Jacobsen, famed terror o" Ballman School.

CALGARY VISITORS IRON SPRINGS (HNS) Mr. and Mrs. Suey Furukaw were Calgary visitors last week. i's recent meeting, and went to defeat on a three to ur vote. Mr. Milliken expressed "ex- eme dissalisfaclion" with the Deration of the town's public orks departmeni, noting also onfusior. on Ihe matter of standing committees and among public works em- loyees. "The town is loo big to be perated without one man in barge of outside he aid, adding that he was most unhappy with the situation and I wanl the public lo know Uush, Ruby Lyons (now Mrs. Fred Jasman of eased the winking Harry Strom of Edmonton. Lawrence jjTin was awarded the endur- ance record for having taught at the school for five years, but he tables were turned as he was reprimanded in return by a former Grade 1 dimpled dar- iing, who was now larger than je. The school building itself is one of the few in Alberta which slill slands on its original posi- tion. The school and its land is owned by families in Hie com- munity, not by any school dis- trict so it remains untouched. The barn which was built side it in 1913, is gone. One person remembered by many was Anna Statema who first attended the school for six years and then taught for three. "It was strange to go to school with students when they were in Grade 1 and 2 and then teach them in Grade 8, remin- isced Miss Statema of Burdett. "You may never want to go through it all agpin, but those memories are so nice to think said a tearful school- mate waving fond adieu.
