The school is an annual af- fair lasting for a full week, ft ended with a program by the children. Every day saw the children and their teachers gather for singing, Bible study, games and handicrafts with, of course, breaks for cold drinks and cook- ies. They spent each morning in a hive of activity and were dis- missed at noon. Their theme for the week was, "Exploring Tomorrow with God." The school was under the sponsorship of the P i n c h e r Creek Baptist Church with Rev. Ralph Orvis leader. Assisting him were women of the church and some Foothills United Church members of Cowley. The children came from Bap- tist, Anglican, Roman Catholic, United Church, Doukhabor, Cliristian Reformed and other denominations. Leaders included Mrs. Marion Smith, Mrs. Lois Smyth, Mrs. Dorothy Day. Mrs. Betty Smith, Mrs. Tina Sekella, Mrs. Marie Snyder, Mrs. J. Weekes, Mrs. Selma Tustian and Mrs. Clara McKay. Providing assistance were Miss Janice Day, the Orvis girls and Miss M. Sweet. The total registered of 68 chil- dren were divided info groups as follows: beginners, prim- ary, intermediate and senior. Mrs. Tusiian Dresided at the piano for the singing. The chorus, "We Want to Know, Lord." was sung. Other songs well received were: "Isn't the Love of Jesus Wonderful, "Surely Goodness and Mercy" and another full chorus, "Happiness Is." Psalm 23 was recited. Lost and found articles were hand- ed out to claimants. Then Mr. Orvis closed with a short prayer. Every boy and girl received a certificate of attendance. The audience were given a chance to view the various items of handicraft made by the children. These included workbooks with verses and coloring, articles made from egg flats and others from nop- sicle sticks.

Reservoir pushed back to spring TABER (HNS) Taber's third open raw water storage reservoir will not he construct- ed this summer but the job will be re-tendered in October for early spring completion. Council agreed with engineer- ing consultatn R. H. Vickerman of Heid, CroHther and Partners that the five tenders received were too high, prinicpally be- cause of the short time allowed for completion of the work by Aug. 31. The early completion date was to allow lime to fill the 100 million storage with irrigation water this fall but closure of Carnation Foods plant for the season made the need for ad- ditional water less imperative. Possible delay in obtaining approval from the department of the environment was also seen as a delaying feature. And not the least cause for delay in construction Is a prob- able incentive grant from the federal government to assist in providing needed services in designated "growth about which inquiries have been made. Tenders received and previ- ously announced ranged from to However, these figures included alterna- tive means of filling and empty- ing the reservoir. Corrected fig- ures showed the tenders lo range from to for one supply system, and from to for an alternate system. The alternate system is fav- ored by council and the engin- eers.
