Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 13, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, July 13, 1978 'imesnsm BEAUTIIS ON PARADE Memories, memories. A pioneer's delight and a newcomer's fantasy came to Lethbridge Saturday as about 200 antique cars from Canada and the United States were on parade at the Whoop-Up International Antique Car meet. The 1919 Winton, above, was omong the cars from B.C., Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, New Bruns- wick, Washington, Idaho, Alaska, and Arizona. A honeymoon couple tour- ing in a 1937 Chev coupe was a surprise entry and they copped the most prestigeous trophy for driving the farthest. Other winners were: hard- luck, John Kuyltjes, Calgary; best dressed woman, Joyce Miller, Hobson, Montana; best dressed man. Bob Blenner-Hassett, Lethbridge; and best dressed couple, Bob and Memo Niblock, Winnipeg. Winner of the Antique Buggy draw was Gary Ward of the city and winner of the centennial rifla was Ray Pearce, also of the city.

His most recent jobs were cur- riculum development work in Prince George, B.C., for the. city's new high school and its proposed College of New Cale- donia. He said his first-task in Leth- bridge will be to survey the whole public school system "to find out what's going on and to what extent the local system is tha same or different than the rest of the' province." He said he will likely make changes in city schools, but only as new curriculum, materials and systems arise to warrant them. He also hopes to meet many city teachers, to see what their various suggestions may be for revision of curriculum and other matters. Mr. Bevan is married, with four children. Other public school district di- rectors, whose jobs were form- ed with the district's revised administration system, are Ger- ald B. Probe, coming to Leth- bridge from Saskatchewan, who will be director of the depart- ment of personnel and material resources; and Robert S. Gall, with the Lethbridge system for he past two years as counsell- ing psychologist, assuming the new position of -director of school services.

A liberal Coat of "CRIBBER" will minimize wood chew- ing in fact results are so amazing horses are known to pluce their teeth over the boards to chew and then back off in disgust! "Cribber" was formulated using high grade exterior white paint as the base. A liberal coot of "Cribber" will minimize wood chewing and having a can end brush avail- able to readily touch up exposed areas should prove cheaper than labour and material to replace chewed boards. As a suggestion, some of the horse breeders install an un- painted board at the top of two aists adjacent to where iheir horses gather In the field. The chewors work on this and leave mo painted fence alone, even where some of the "Cribber" paint has been rubbed off.

Commenting on a report from Edmonton where a union spokesman said they are con- sidering private mail service in that city if rotating strikes fail to solve the negotiation dead- lock, Mr. Brown said even- tually such plans might have to be Implemented here, but so far mail was being bandied in the usual way. Mr. Brown said it is logical for postal workers to set up a private system rather than per- mit outside agencies to take over as happened in the strike of 1968. "In Calgary and Vancouver, postal unions intend to operate their own service when and if a national strike Mr. Brown said, "and they are all ready for it."

In 1932 he moved west to Manitoba and then to Brandon, coming finally to the Lethbridge Experimen- tal Farm (now the Lethbridge Research Station) in 1938.

Following the Second World War, he worked with a Calgary researcher named Ned Palmer, to develop a simple and inex- pensive pump to spray the newly developed insecticides which were finally beginning to eradicate the prairie insects. He personally took his knowl- edge to the farmers on thSir own land, showing them how to improve their yields and pro- tect themselves from grasshop- pers, flies and other pests, as well as offering advice on al- most every aspect of farming.
