Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta BICENTENNIAL BUST? Spirit of 1976 doesn't seem to stir many Americans W.dn.wfay, June 27, 1973 THE LtTHMIDGE HEttALD 31 WASHINGTON CROSSING, N.J. (NEA) When the Unit- ed States celebrated its 100th birthday, in 1876, a Boston newspaperman wrote: "The Centennial closed in Novem- ber, not too soon for the many who had found much of it so faddish and tiresome that the word Centennial was repulsive. How did it stared at us from every oyster cellar, tripe stall, coffee booth, grand hotel, hab- erdashery, candy shop and fish store oh, give us a rest for a hundred The people of Washington Crossing never read that com- ment. But they might have.

For many it seems, the hundred years rest hasn't been long enough. BALONEY? says a man in the Tally Ho bart hard b the Delaware River. "What1 that? Oh, yeah, I know. Ba oney, that's what it is, baloney Naw, I don't care anytbin about it. Gimme another beer huh." The opinion, minus barley breath, is echoed throughou this tiny settlement. An offi cial in the township (Hopewell municipal building says he hasn't "heard word one abou 1976." A man driving a roarofessions among their mem- Numbered in their ranks are accountants, chemists, en- gineers, lawyers, mechanics, lilots and veterinarians to lame a few callings. A sub- stantial number of doctors have erved in the force over the years. One of the first medi- :al men in the North West Counted Police was Dr. Henry George. Not only was Dr. George Calgary physician and sur- [eon to his fellow policemen, nit he also treated many of the ndians in the four tribe fed- eration in the territory that was to become Alberta. Back in 1883 when the Cana- in Pacific Railway was build- 'ig its way across the western jrairies, many miles of the oute lay within territory be- onging to this powerful feder- tion. Dr. George was a friend and confidant of Crowfoot, chief of the Blackfoot tribe nd also the acknowledged lea- er of the federation. Volume 2 of the official ournal of the North West fminted Police stated "It was ommon knowledge among hose fortunate enough to have enjoyed long and intimate ac- uaintance with the renowned leader of the federted Black- foot, Blood, Peigan and Sarcee tribes that the infirmity of ad- vancing years had found its way to the lodge of the fore- most living Indian in the Cana- dian West. But there were troubled forebodings and spe- culations among white men and red as to the nature of a dis- ability that had recently wrought a marked change in the chief of chiefs.

He was man, whose name alone, had more than once been of moment to the soul of Canada, and the thought of Blackfoot Land with- out Crowfoot conjured up a picture which few could grasp." It was through Crowfoot's leadership and guidance that the railway completed its course across the plans with- out bloodshed. The Canadian Pacific Railway recognized his assistance by presenting him with a lifetime pass. He made good use of this and the pass was to be one of his most trea- sured adornments for the re- mainder of his Not the real thing Annual re-enactment at Washington Crossing, N.J., is a local historical event that Is a reminder of the heritage Americans generally seem to be ignoring.
