It starts off with a costume ball Friday, evening. Satuiday there. will be a pancake breakfast, parade at 10. a.m., official opening of the anniversary celebra- tion wirh former premier Harry Strom on hand, golf tournament, horse shoes, beer garden, parachute -display and giant com- munity barbecue. Sunday: morning worship service and rodeo in the after- fiootv PINCHER CREEK (Special) At the recent town council meeting a letter was read from V. E. McCurn, deputy minister, department of highways, advis- ing that the maximum offer of assistance from the department for construction of the new bridge could be Either progress payments or the complete' sum when that amount of work is completed will be forwarded. Either way was acceptable to council. No U-turn signs will be placed on Hewitson Avenue at the in- tersections of Frederick and Adelaide Streets. With the clos- ure of the bridge on Bridge Avenue traffic has necessarily become heavier on Hewitson, thus the need for banning U- turns. Mrs. Mary Schmidt attended the meeting and suggested to council that in her opinion, there was a considerable num- ber of persons in'Pincher Creek who were in need of transporta- tion service and requested that council look at the possibility of subsidization towards a service of this nature. Council suggested that the reason the last taxi company ceased to operate was because there was too much business for one person to handle, therefore, a subsidization of a taxi service didn't seem necessary. A sug- gestion was made that possibly the service clubs could be ap- proached to provide ibis type of service. A six months period report on the ambulance service show- ed a. total of 79 trips and miles had been recorded. It was noted that the ambulance is op- erating on a break-even opera- tion and possibly an -increase should be instituted for the eventual replacement of the Taber land annex plan refused by province TABER (HNS) The Town of Taber's bid to have 20 acres of land north of. town annexed to the town has been refused by the provincial government's Local Authorities Board. At a public hearing December 20, indications were that the proposed annexation of Taber Packers' 14 acres, along with about six acres owned by Reu- ben and Sarah Stredmer, would be approved. for the annexation was to include the Packers property for the purpose of pro- viding services at ratepayers rates, and to provide for a wid ening of 64th Avenue west-a 50th Street However, associate planner Code Clements, of Okhnan River Region Plannmg Commis- sion, not being aware of the town's purpose, raised objection to piece-meal annexation. Hie later told the council be bad changed bis opinion.

Phone 328-3301 In its ruling, the Local Au- thorities Board was "of the opinion that the Town has not demonstrated any need of the annexation area for urban ex- pansion, nor did the Town make any representations respecting a desire to exert direct munici- pal control over the subject ter- ritory." The ruling added that in the absence of .these two essential motivations, the board finds that the Town of Taber has not made a case favouring the granting of its annexation ap- plication. APPEAL The town will now appeal the decision of the Local Authori- ties Board through the ORRPC at its next meeting when coun- cillor Dennis Turin will broach the subject. Meantime, the road has been wideued following proper regis- tration of survey, and Taber Packers is being served with water and sewer at property owners' rates. Spot fires suppressed by students CRANBROOK (Special) B.C.

A review of revenue and ex- penditures by Councillor Oly- slager showed that the estimat- ed expenditure for interest on interim borrowing-shouldn't be as high as was budgeted and a savings should be made there. A discussion was held on the arrears of taxes and a check is to be made into the matter. Further information is ex- pected from Edmonton in Au- gust with regard to the upgrad- ing of the airstrip. Mayor Teran reported that Time Airways has indicated an interest in estab- lishing a service to Pincher Creek.
