Taber town council voted un- animously against approval of a request made by the Gear Lords that one mile of the high- way west of Taber be used ternate Sunday mornings as supervised driving strip follow- ing a police report. Corporals James Corsan and Gordon Hacking of the RCMP and town police respectively, fold the council that, as far as can be learned, no major high- way has been taken out of reg- ular use for such activity. Among the reasons given was the i.eed for an Order in Coun- cil by the provincial cabinet each 'Jme the highway "be- comes other than a public high- way" otherwise RCMP wowlc have no alternative than to prosecute. Both police departments were also concerned over persona" and public liability, should traf- fic be diverted through the town or on district roads when the drag strip is in use. Roll] expressed fear of possible con- sequences and were not in fa- vor of approval of the request. It was noted that in no case has the minister of highway; Gordon E. Taylor approved use of main highways for drag pur- poses, though the Gear Lords ANNOUNCEMENT WIN A 1971 PINTO -OR CASH EQUIVALENT Be among the FIRST 100 purchasers of a NEW or USED VEHICLE and be eligible for a FREE draw on this offer effective July 26th till 100 ve- hicles are sold.

Corsan, "It's great, and I'm all for it. But in no way can a highway be blocked off for such a purpose."

Historic day for new village NATAL (HNS) Monday, August 2, will be a historical date for the new village of Elk- ford, situated north of Spar- wood near Boivin Creek. On that day will be held the first council meeting of the new vil- lage. The letters patent have al- ready been signed and a five- member council appointed by order in council. Serving are H. M. Keys, N. J. Moxham, Mrs. Barbara Taplin, Anthony Eegion and Karl Maartman. For want of a village office, the meeting will be held in the recreation hall. The village was formed under what is termed Mutant town legislation' and that is now included in the Municipal Act. At latest word, there are now 445 persons residing in Elkford Swimmers pass tests TABER !HNS) Just over 100 swimmer trainees success- fullly completed the first of four swimming courses being con- ducted during the summer months at hte local community pool. In the five classes according to proficiency, there were 28 pre-begirmers, 23 beginners, 31 juniors, 11 intermediates and eight seniors. The intermediates were Rod- ney Hamilton, Dani Zobell, Shelly Price, Linda Powell, Juanita Williams, David Hack- ing, Jo-Ann Oddie, Darcy Hum- phries, James Williams, Cyn- thia Dorchak and Dawn Mer- eski. Seniors passing their tests were Blais, Dianne Oddie, Jane Pauka, Keena Humphries, Holly Meyer. Dennis Evanson and Stuart Roe. The Red Cross swim lessons were conducted by instructors Mike Howard, Reva Platt and Deborah Stimson under the su- pervision of director of recrea- tion programs, Yvonne Mclvor. and a spokesman said that it is expected 160 new homes will be built there by the end of 1971 and that about 50 mobile homes will be in place. One of the problems facing the new council is provision of enlarged facilities for sewage disposal. The village already has a small sewage plant, but with rapid population growth this will soon be too small. Pro- posed is a sewage lagoon, plans for which have already been approved. Plans are also under way for construction of a dam on Boi- vin Creek, known locally as Goat Creek, in order to get suf- ficient domestic water supplies. Because no property assess- ments have been carried out, the fledgling council has no tax revenue coming in and cannot expect any until 1972. Financ- ing until the end of 1971 will he provided by Fording Coal and early in 1971, the council may borrow funds from the Depart- ment of Municipal Affairs. Rev.

Summer driving, especially with extra vacation traffic, can be tricky. You keep your car in shape. You check your battery, tires, cooling system and seat belts. But how about yourself? If enjoying a drink is one of the ways you relax in summer, fine. As long as you enjoy it wisely. It's a good idea not to overdo summer sun or sport. And the same goes for drinking.
