Objections to the provincial government's proposed move to limit increases in assessment to 10 per cent annually have been voiced again by the RDEK.

The Shelby students lived on the farm instead of in town. They had never ridden on a van. They found the 80-minute class periods too long and were amazed at the communitv spirit and .enthusiasm of a small school and so many organizations (very rewarding). In Shelby the families are involved in only one or two activities, while in Warner the whole community belongs to almost every organization and participates in every sport. The Shelby students were entertained at the Warner Lions Club supper meeting. They had never seen a game of curling; they were very interested and had to try it. They toured the bowling alley, skating rink, pool hall (our tables are much bigger); enjoyed a band concert practice in Milk River; were entertained at l show and Chinese food (new to them) in Lethbridge. J. North, county superintendent, took them to a Hutterite colony. All they saw was different and new.
