The British Columbia municipal financing authority informed the regional district by .telegram it had re- jected tenders on its first issue of debentures to finance pro- jects here and in Fernie.

Mr. MacGregor had held many positions of trust but the one nearest his heart was his work in educa- tion. To him this was a dedica- tion of his life's work. His ser- vice is beyond measure. It makes us happy to share this occasion." Besides the students and staff of the Granum schools, those attending were Mr. and Mrs. Donald Douglas, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Mason, Mrs. Kay Smith, Mr. and Mrs. Terry, Cairns, Mrs. Eva Sherman and Mrs. Wilbert (Mary) Laughton. Mayor Terry Dairns brought greetings from the Town of Granum. Mr. MacGregor, an oldtimer of the district, came to Alberta from Ontario in 1905 to visit another oldtime resident, Pat MacKemie. Prom Granum he travelled to Vancouver where he met and married his wife and lived for three years. In 1908 he returned to Granum and started a carpen- tering business.

Cardston fair, horse show to be held on August 18 the Windcrmcre Valley. T h c members of the association arc becoming more and more re- luctant to make the trips. The association points out the men who run the ambulances are volunteers, that long trips are getting more costly for the associations, and that debts from other areas, particularly from out of the province, are hard lo collect. The HDEK has brought a truck, trailer and crawler trac- tor to operate its own garbage disposal sites. The regional district had thought it would contract the work to private operators, but found such a procedure would be far too costly. The lowest tender received for a number of sites located fairly close to- gether was at each. The regional district now has four garbage sites and about five more are being processed by the provincial government. Chairman of Kimberley noted that the re- gional district has been collect- ing taxes for the function for the past two years and said, "I see no way out of the function." 99th birthday marked hv Arthur Critchfield CARDSTON (HNS I tl-.ur B.
