CALGARY (Special) It was a humble assemblage that curtsied to their Queen here Thursday. A delegation of Fort Ma- cleod residents of all ages, representing the town that sprung from the first North West Mounted Police fort established in the west, greeted Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip in the Calgary Stampede's Flare Square which is devoted this year to honoring the centennial of the national force.

Many of the native work- ers wUl remain in Southern Alberta to earn money from other jobs until harvest late in the summer when they can work for the sugar beet growers again. Mr. Snow said the sugar beet crop was in average condition, adding "a good general rain would be wel- comed."
