All you could see were thousands of cattle, coyotes, and rattlesnakes, when I came here with my family in says Joe Tennant, 82. The Tennants came from Kagawong, Manitoulin Island, Ont. He can still remember driving cattle across the prairie from Lethbridge to the farm of an uncle, Clarence Hunt, and then driving them another 11 miles southeast to the Iron Springs area, which was known as Coyote Flats. That same fall, at the age of 13, he broke the first 10 acres of sod in the district. His father sat in the back of a wagon and sowed the grain by hand from a tub. It was a very dry year and the grain did not come up At the age of 17 years he went to work at the Archie McKerncher ranch at Pincher Creek. After a few weeks he grew a mustache, hoping to add age to his appearance and at the same time hoping to discourage visitors from continually asking where the "boss" was. Three years later he came back to Iron Springs to haul lumber for the Nolan bridge which was then being built However, it was not long untii he returned to the McKerncher ranch again, this time as manager. A few years later he came back to Iron Springs again and bought a farm from an uncle. In order to supplement his income he helped draw lumber from Commerce for the Lethbridge Northern Irrigation project in 1921-1922. He continued to farm until 1962. Then he and his wife retired and moved to Lethbridge. He and his wife, the former Edna Blackmore, whom he married in 1924, were very active in the community. He was an enthusiastic worker in the Iron Springs United Church, serving as an elder on the board of the session, as Sunday school superintendant, and teacher of the atiult Sunday School class Following the death of Mrs. Tennant in 1968, he continued to look after his home and his rose gardens in Lethbridge for the next four years until illness overtook him. He now resides at the Southland Nursing Home. Despite ill health he maintains a cheery disposition and is always ready to share a bit of wisdom and humor with friends and relatives. One daughter, Norma Owens, lives at Magrath, while his other daughter, Thelma Bailey, lives at Camrose. He also looks forward to visits from six grandchildren and his great grandchild.

The mini-games will be a dry run for the 1975 Canada Winter Games and will present an opportunity to try out media results, communications. Forty-Mile prepares for warm-up FOREMOST (Staff! County of Forty-Mile Coun. Russell Scratch says he hopes athletes throughout the county will take part in the 1974 Southern Alberta Winter Mini- Games being held on two weekends. March 29 and 30 and April 5 and 6. The county is one of 10 divisions in Southern Alberta and has been tagged Alberta, with other divisions each representing a province. "After they gave us that nice name we decided we should make an effort to said Coun Scratch Reeve Dan Vanden Berg said. "Every year we have gone along with it. 1 think we should go along with it again." Coun Scratch noted the Taber MD has been tagged Quebec He said one problem is to get space for practices as school gyms are 'booked up with intramural sports. officiating, ceremonies and protocol. Due to the lack of facilities, southern Alberta is only able to follow through with eight of the 16 sports for the mini- Games and they are: badminton, basketball, curl- ing, hockey, speed skating, table tennis and volleyball. It was felt that because the required equipment for these sports were available, that there should be sufficient athletes to make the 1975 Games. The 1974 mini-games weill be held March 29 and 30 and April 5 and 6 in different localities in southern Alberta. Prior to these dates each region is responsible through local competitions to chose athletes that will represent its region Health care complex plan 'staggers imagination' BROOKS The scope of the proposed Brooks Health Care Complex staggers the imagination, says hospital board chairman Paul Bartlett. Speaking to a meeting of the Brooks and District Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Bartlett The Herald- District Hospital board supports Taber nursing home plan Support for construction of a 50-bed nursing home in Taber was given this week by the Lethbridge Municipal, Auxiliary Hospital and Nursing Home district Board. At the special meeting between the LMH board and Taber hospital board a resolution was passed that "appropriate steps" be taken for establishment of the facility. LMH board chairman John Moreland said Thursday the first priority will be to get approval for the structure from the Alberta Hospital Services Commission. The commission must approve financing before anything more can be done, Mr. Moreland said The board will also be looking at the feasibility of letting the Taber board form its own nursing home district. The LMH board now has jur- isdiction over nursing homes in the Taber district. According to the resolution the nursing home care facility can be either a separate nursing home or a wing join- ed to Taber's existing hospital The latter would provide nursing home care, active treatment, and auxiliary care in one building.
