Howling dogs trouble sleepers BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) Barking dogs are creating a nuisance during the night in the town of Blairmore and council is being faced with many com- plaints from residents in the south and west ends of Blair- more who have their sleep broken by the animals. It seems that coyotes in the nearby hills howl at night and the dogs follow suit and not only howl but also bark. Once one dog starts, reports indicate, other dogs get the message and barking sets up all over town. Council wish to remind dog owners that the animals must be kept under owner's care and control at all times. This in- cludes keeping dogs_ from creating a nuisance. It 5s felt by many of the complainants that owners of dogs should keep the animals in at night so that they do not disturb other per- son's sleep. The local dog catcher will be advissd of the situation and persons failing to take steps to stop the animals will be charg- ed with creating a nuisance. DISTRICT HEWS Miles of memories Rural drivers quickly count up the mil es as they operate several vehicles in the course of a lifetime. When they are not driving a tractor on the farm, chances are they will be operating a car, gathering supplies in a pick-up or delivering the neighbors kids to school in a bus. When Jake Siemens of 1502 20th Ave., Coaldale, wants to recall oil the miles he has travelled, all he has to do is view his collection of regis- tration plates affixed to his garage. CORRECTION!

Claresholm dines on buffalo CLARESHOLM (Special) To honor foreign exchange stu- dents in this area for the sum- mer, a Buffalo barbecue was in June. Carol Aschim, district home economist, headed the committee arranging the af- fair.

Barry Ernes graduates as lawyer PINCHER CREEK (Special) Barry Edward Ernes, a former resident of Pincher Creek, recently graduated with an L.L.B. from the University of British Columbia.

Instruction space, secretarial and information services and communications terminals for Fernie and Cranbrook-Kim- berhy are suggesred as prac- tical help in this first oppofr tunity East Kootenay matricu- lants have been offered in post- secondary education. Implementation of this uni- versity level nigbt school now depends on whether Cranbrook or Kimbsrley, only 20 miles apart, accepts the modest bud- get requirement. All East Kootenay centres have active continuing ecuca- tion programs, but academ- ically these are only senior secondary school courses, with major participation in vocation- al creative arts and recreation- al courses. The post- secondary credit course offer would apparently be classified under university extension program rather than "continuing education" whose limits are rather vague. Local chambers of com- merce, city councils, district school boards and the intellec- tual elite of East Kootenay have been articulate in de- manding junior college service for their matriculants. Approval of the Selkirk pro- posal would effectively mea- sure the hard-core interest by matriculants in actual educa- tion advancement acadeatfwrt- PINCHER CREEK (Special) The Chinook Health" Unit will conduct the following well- baby clinics during July: FORT MACLEOD: Tuesday, July 3, Health Unit Office, to p.m. PINCHER CREEK: Wednes- day, July 4, Health Unit Office, a.m. and to p.m. LUNDBRECK: T h u r sday, July 5, Anglican Parish Hall, to p.m. CLARESHOLM: Thursday, July 5, Elementary school, to p.m. COLEMAN: Tuesday, July 10, United Church Hall, to a.m. and to p.m. PINCHER CREEK: Wednes- day, July 11, Health Unit Of- fice, to a.m. and to p.m. BLAIRMORE: T h u r s day, July 12, Health Unit Office, to a.m. and to p.m. BELLEVUE: Friday, July 13, Town HaU, to p.m. FORT MACLEOD: Tuesday, July 17 Health Unit Office, to p.m. PINCHER CREEK: Wednes- day, July 18, to and to p.m. Health Unit Office.
