Scouter Guy Sabey browsing through some accumulated books and papers in the Scout Hall lately when he came across a copy of a booklet called Centenorama- It wai dated 1967 and was printed under the sponsorship of the Girl Guides and Boy Scouts of Canada. This gives the history and names of leaders and nel of Brownie Packs, Guide Companies, Scout Troops, Rover Crews and Cub Packs throughout what is now the Southern Alberta Region. Scouter Sabey did research on the account of the First Lethbridge Scout Troop and the very FIRST patrol formed in the city. He sent copies of the booklet to all of the living members as well as to the widows of the deceased members. The following down from the old records of 1971: 1 - Arthur Green, Lethbridge; 2 - Dean Ursenbacb, Fresno, California; S-Charles Unenbach, Calgary; 4-Robert Harvey, Lethbridge; 8 - Lorio Kesler, deceased; 6 - Charles Tillack, Raymond; 7 - Owen Hoiman, deceased; 8 - Devore Kesler, Lethbridge. The first scoutmaster, Leonard Green, recently deceased. Our thanks to Scouter Sabey for a most interesting piece of research. Good hunting, all! Woodpecker joins rare bird ranks WASHINGTON (AP) - The ivory-billed woodpecker, a colorful, rakish bird rarer than the whooping crane, appears to be the latest to join the ranks of the passenger pigeon and other vanished species. The species was last reported sighted three years ago and despite a "sounding" last month naturalists hold out little hope. Even if one or two birds are still living, says Dr. Richard Banks of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, "I'm sure they're past the point of no return." "Their numbers are insufficient to form a viable population." Harry Goodwin, chief of the office of endangered species, says: "I'm about ready to give up." The last reported sighting was made by ornithologist John Dennis in 1967. He estimated that from five to 10 pairs inhabited the Big WOODPECKER ... Vanishing species I Dinner set for April 16 TABER (HNS)-Spearhead-ing a visit of Alberta's agricultural trade commissioner here on Friday, April 16, the commission voted to request the Taber Chamber of Commerce to arrange for a public dumer meeting on that date. The chamber's representative on the commission George Meyer took on the responsibility of the referral. The industrial development commission met with Joe Kle-men and his son Ed in connec tion with their proposed livestock killing business now under consideration- Recommendations were made that the firm consider the provision of a sheep killing line, there being no such service south of Edmonton while more than half the provinces sheep are grown in the extreme south. The promoters assured the commission that there would be no adverse effects from the up-to-date slaughter house, but will consult with provincial government officials in making further representation to concerned industries. Thicket country of eastern Texas. The last confirmed sighting before that was made in 1990 along the Chipola River in Florida. Last month, Robert Manns, southeastern representative of the Audubon Society, played an amplified, tape-recorded mating call of the bird in the Santee swamp near Columbia, S.C., and heard a response. "It was unbelievable," he said later. "No other bird will return the call in the same way except an. ivory-billed woodpecker. There was either someone in the swamp who is awfully good at imitating the bird or there's a bird there." Manns, however, has not sighted a bird. And efforts to reconfirm existence of the species along the Heches River in eastern Texas have met with failure. Decline of the Ivory-bill followed extensive lumbering operations throughout the South that felled the once-large stands of virgin timber. EAT LARVAE The birds fed primarily on the larvae of wood-borers that lived under tree bark. When the timber was cut, the birds' food supply was cut-off. Ornithologist Arthur Cleveland Bent estimated in 1939 that less than SO of the birds existed. The ivory-bill, largest wood-pecked in North America and second largest in the world, Is a particularly handsome species. Both sexes have black end white plumages and are larger than crows. The males have a rakish scarlet crest, while the female's crest is black. mutmm ! win*, tht tlncvtt tfftrt ftfvn'j can mate to Mit/ you wttttiNMif ffWffff Mttltftctlnt.
