Grade 5 joins Project Canada to become pen. pals with 35 By WANDA KEDDINC WILLY dc LEEU DEANNE OWEN COALDALE The education department of Ontario contact- ed the education department in Alberta in an effort to promote understanding and communica- tion between the pupils of the two provinces. In a letter to the Grade 5 pupils of Baker School, they en- quired how many Grade 5 pu- pils would like to correspond with a twin class. Miss Dueck discussed this with her Grade 5 pupils. They liked the idea and a positive reply was sent. This led to Grade 5 Baker class becoming a twin class with the Grade 5 pupils of St. Stanislaun School, Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. This school then re- ceived 35 letters from its twin class. Following this pupils ex- changed individual letters. During February the pupils interviewed people at the town hall, lumberyard, sportsplex, fire hall, police station and cheese factory. Miss Dueck's pupils then made a scrapbook displaying aspects of R I Baker, the fown of Coaldale and the surround- ing district. This was sent to St. Stani- slaun School in the beginning of March. Contained in the scrapbook were pictures and detailed reports on each school. An aerial photo of Coaldale and pictures and write-ups of various agencies were also en- closed. Most of the pupils enjoyed this project for reasons such as, "You get friends from other "You find out what other parts of Canada are and "It's fun having a friend in another place."

Canada geese sighted SCANDIA Recently two pair of Canada Geese and their young goslings were sighted as they left their homes on the sand bar in the Bow River. One family of three looked to be a few days old. The other hatch of 11 was still very young. The sand bar was not vory well camouflaged at nesting time. The parent geese were often seen, either nearby on the water, on leaving or re- turning to the nests. During the last spell of warm weather the shrubbery and trees on the sand bar quickly leafed out. Now its a veritable forest of greenery. In 1972, young gccse were spotted June 2. In J97I it was May 19.

It will be conducted on a one-year trial basis if the pro- gram now receives the bless- ing of the department of health and social develop- ment. Tne program was present- ed to council by the Barons- Eureka preventive social ser- vice. Directors are John Boon of Coaldale and Ray B. Evan- son of Taber. Council was advised that more than 500 senior citizens live in Taber, many of whom are older than 80 and in poor health. They need special attention to "make their remaining years said Mr. Boon. On government approval, a capable woman would be en- gaged to give aid to a limited number of these needy folk, at the same time enlisting the assistance of community groups for necessary manual work. Cost of the program was placed at including ary, fringe bene fits, travel, and other materials needed in the program. The town voted to assist the program on the one year trial basis, covering 20 per cent of the costs or The 80 per cent portion will be subscribed by the recent- ly announced social ment assistance legislation. The designed program will not interfere with any other jurisdiction in the area but would complement and co-op- erate with other special ser- vices such as the present "homemaker service" initi- ated by preventive social ser- vice. Mr. Evanson said that the program would allow those of advanced age to remain in their own homes as long as possible. It will provide such ser- vices as would bring comfort and peace of mind.

Broiler operation opposed COALDALE (HNS) Town council is opposed to the con- struction of a large broiler de- velopment about one mile southwest of town limits. Comments of council were requested by Lethbridge Coun- ty 26. The county will make the fi- nal devision on whether it wins approval? The application was to erect four broiler barns, each 40 by 240 feet in size. Council said that the nega- tive vote was registered be- cause of two main factors, pre- vailing west winds and possible future expansion of the town to the west. Residents of the town are now plagued with the stench of a poultry operation immediate- ly south of town.
