CROSS rapy WE TAKE GRAIN IN TRADE ABOVE MARKET PRICES GIVEN FATE HANGS IN THE BALANCE-The old No. 2 fire hall, described by William H. Short, former fire chief, as "one of the few remaining relics of Lethbridge's early may soon be gone forever. Local efforts to save the hall have so 'far been unsuccessful. Its only hope right now is that Heritage Park in Calgary will give it a home. The hall, which now houses two fire engines and an ambulance, was once the home for six horses in the cays before the department became mechanized. A right, fireman Don Carpenter takes what may be one of ihe last slides down the brass pole. Future Of Fire Hall Undecided No decision has been made by officials at Heritage Park in Calgary on whethter they will accept Lethbridge's old No. 2 fire hall, alderman Steve Kotch said Tuesday. Mr. Koteh said he feels there is a chance the park will de- cide to take the .ski fire hall and a decision may be made in the next few days'. Negotiations with' Heritage began when'local efforts to re- locate the hall ran into finan- cial difficulties.

Ph. 327-5454 One suggested site has been opposite the travel hut on the brewery hoH, which would need extensive ground level ling work. The hall is on the edge of the new Centre Village Shopping Centre and Marathon Realty has been working to within a few feet of it. An automative centre sign, now on the construction site, will be put up where the hall now stands. Other than that, no actual construction ether than paving and curb installation will take place on the fire hall site. Marathon will need a week or Rural Mosquitoes Blow Into City so to tear down the old hall, if it is still there, and do Ihe nec- essary work to get ready for the proposed early October opening of the shopping centre. The new No. 2 fire hall is being built at 5th Ave. and 28th St. N. It should be ready sometime in August. The old hall was built in 1909 and was originally about' 150 yards south of its present loca- tion. It was moved in about 1919 by the CPR, which needed the land for1 extension of rail lines.

The irrigation, aided by sev- eral good rainstorms, has re- sulted in a large number of small pools in the district ideal breeding grounds for mosquitos. Another factor is the strong winds, which bring in mos- quitos from outside the mile limit covered by the health unit's control pro- gram. Breeding pools within the limit are sprayed with an oil mixture 'while the young mos- quitos are still in the water, but the program has no effect on mosquitos blown in from the surrounding district.
