Today, the 100th anniver- sary of the proclamation of the Manitoba Act, was declared a provincial holiday. The Queen said the Royal Family, travelling the province from north to south, had re- ceived a "most vivid impression of the intricate racial, religious and cultural tapestry which makes up the population of the province." "As in a tapestry, it is the cohesion of thread and color which gives strength and design to the whole fabric." She added: "I have also been deeply impressed by the active participation of all groups in local, provincial and national government." "It is my hope that the Crown FLOWERS FOR THE QUEEN Four-year-old Lisa Dawn Epp curtsies after presenting uquet of flowers to the Queen during visit to Steinbach, Man., Tuesday. will continue in the future, as it las done in the past, to be a inifying force and a focus for national identity for the many >eoples of differing back- grounds who have mads Mani- :oba their home." Referring to herself as the Jueen of Canada, she men- joned the role the Hudson's 3ay Co. had played in the listory of Manitoba in fact the company could be looked upon as a parent of Manitoba. "It seems fitting and appro- mate that in this anniversary year it should transfer1 its head- quarters from London to Winni- fi. Indeed, I had the interesting experience of revoking the origi- nal charter in one capacity and in granting a as Queen of Canada." The Queen said the mingling of many peoples is creating a new society in which all are Ca- nadians and in which all walks of life are open to everyone. Government existed to serve and protect the aspirations of each individual. 'I count myself fortunate to >e at the head of a state in winch such a society exists and is so strongly established in freedom and tolerance."

The horseback trip started May 18 at San" Bernardino, Calif., and was completed Sat- urday by. nine people and 20 lorses. The group consisted of seven 'ndians, including a 22-year-old ;irl, and was led by Bryan 3ng, a 39-year-old business- man who is a former ranch land, rodeo performer, a tele- vision actor and a volunteer worker involved in "minority problems." Mr. King's 13-year- )ld son also made the trip. In an interview Tuesday, Mr. King said the project was a co-operative effort to instill self pride and a sense of per- sonal achievement. "The idea is to show young Indians they can get up and do what they want if they work hard enough." It all started to the spring of 1969 when a number of Indians our human goodness.

Wheat height averages 17 inches, an increase of five inches during the week. About 37 per cent of the wheat has headed. Growth is heavy in many re- gions indicating high yields in some areas. Rainfall averaged just less than half an inch last week, the Pool said. Soil moisture reserves de- clined during the week ended Monday with topsoil moisture rated at 87 per cent of capa- city compared with 93 per cent last week. Southern regions needed ad' ditional rain as sub-soil re- serves were light. In the Peace River area, sub-soil reserves were more favorable despite a need for rain. The condition index for wheat is 95 per cent of normal, nine points ahead of 1969. Barley and rapeseed each de- clined one percentage point during the week, while rye and oats were unchanged. Flax- seed in some southern regions dropped three per cent. A major hail storm moved through the province from Wetaskiwin through Viking and Vermilion Saturday, causing severe damage. Winter wheat is maturing rapidly and swathing is expect- ed to begin within a week to 10 days with a near average yield1 anticipated. Turner and some of his provin- cial government counterparts are concerned. The idea of universal finger- irinting was put forward by On- ario Supervising Coroner H. B. Cotaam as a result of difficul- .tes in Identifying the 109 vic- ims of the July 5 Air Canada crash near Toronto. "I don't believe any more in universal fingerprinting than I do in universal identification Mr. Turner said when asked for his views on the suggestion. He is here for talks with provincial attorneys-gen- eral. Attorney-General Edgar Ger- hart of Alberta _said the idea might have merit if there were national registration, as there! was during the Second World War. "Otherwise, the people wouldn't buy he added. "I have no personal objection to it but I think the public would in- terpret it as an invasion of pri- Stampede Attendance Dragging CALGARY (CP) The Cal- gary Stampede breezed through another balmy day Tuesday, but attendance con- tinued to sag in comparison with previous years.

Last year, after cold and rain dampened initial crowds, 890 people came on the Tues- day to greet the return to fair weather. Total attendance after six day is a drop of from last year. But most Stampede officials and midway operators were not overly concerned and indi- cated that business, instead of being fantastic, was merely ex- cellent. There were fewer people In the casino, operated for the second time this year, but the card tables and other games of chance were in full swing.
