Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Tliundoy, July 30, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 -LUCK pOT-LUCK is glad to prill this week a guest column .from Fort Macleod corrcspon dent Mrs. Ted (Joan) Swihart It follows: Chief Running Antelope gone but we hope he will come back to Fort Mnclcod soon. Yes, the visit of Canada's Governor General Kolaml Ml clicner was an inspiring occa sion for citizens of Fort Mac- Icod. This isn't a very big town population-wise, but in history it is the biggest anywhere. Prior to Gov.-Gcn. Roland Michcner being made a chie: in the Kainai Society, a civic reception was held in his hon- or at the home of Mayor Ken Ilurlburl. Mr. Iliirlburt introduced the governor-general to a civic re- ceiving line that included town councillors and their wives, Tofld Haibeck and' family oj JjCthbridge, Allan Lambert and his family of Toronto, Corneli- us Martens and his family o! Coaldale and other official guests. Mrs. Hurllinrt present- ed Miss Karen Michener Rohr, the governor-general's grand- daughter, to the 40 assembled guests. Following coffee, the party, under RCMP escort left to tour the Fort Museum. As the tour of the Fort Mu- seum concluded, Mr. Hurlburt, on behalf of the town council- lors and citizens of the town, presented Mr. Michener with the bronze sculpture of an In- dian warrior which was scribed, "To commemorate the visit of Governor-General lio- lami Michener to Fort Macleod on July 19, 1970." Mr. Michener in replying said he was pleased to have such an "unexpected and re- markable" gift. "It is much easier to sculp than to cast, and I'm amazed that it can be done here." Mr. and Mrs. Michener gave portraits to the Fort Museum, to the town and to the mayor. He also complimented Regi- nald Jennings of Calgary for giving the museum the Sir Frederick Haiiltatn L a w Of- fice. He added that Sir Freder- ick was a fellow lawyer and they had been Mends when Sir Frederick was Chief Jus- tice of Saskatchewan. But more about Corny Mar- tens. A south Alberta resident By D'ARCY RICKARD was chosen to design a su able gift to be presented 'fiov.-Geii. K o 1 a n d from the Town of Fort Ma Icod. Mr. Martens said only bron was appropriate for such occasion and the design created was that of an India warrior poised in such mann that perhaps he was looku over a ridge at a herd of bu falo or the NWMP or as II Excellency thought, gazing in space to the Happy H u n t i n Ground. Mr. Martens, who works the promotion field, does h art as a paying hobby. He only been working serious with bronze for four years. Mr. Martens made the or ginal sculpture for M Michener. .A copy, also bronze was given to Mr. Hur burt as a remembrance of th occasion. A third copy in a uminum will be retained 1: the artist. The mold will t destroyed. Mr. Martens has been com missioned to do a piece to b presented to the cowboy wl] does the most to p r o m o t rodeos. This trophy will b given by C. N.

Council Backs Planners On Parks COALDALE (HNS) Town council will support the Old- man River Regional Planning Commission iii its policy that 10 per cent of all land bo held for community reserves. When new subdivisions are developed the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission has the authorization to decide whether it will be 10 per cent or actual land or of the value of the land. Hie ORHPC also decides which portion of the land it is to be. Sometimes they choose to waive the 10 per cent completely. The feeling now is not lo waive it. II. is usually preferred by mu- nicipalities and the ORRPC that the actual land be set aside for the community re- serves. This is then meant for parks or tot-lots or strips.
