Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Thursday, Mnrcli M, jfi1 1 Just Jude By JUDE TURIC r.j Alberta, being a relatively young province, still has a history can be readily traced to reveal some of tho more interesting whys and wherefores. Scattered throughout. HID province arc place names which, no doubt, have iniri- gued more than one person. A recently-published book, 2000 Place N'aires of Alberta, takes the strain off wonder- ing and offers some answers. Generally, it seems the most popular method of nam- ing a town, village, hamlet or stopping-off point was to take on the surname of the local postmaster. He (or sometimes she) .1 must have been very impor- tant to the people in the re- gion, as the name was us- ually readily adopted. The jmme of the only worn- nn in the territory or the first baby rated the same consideration, hence we gat such names as Garrington, Dorothy, Foreman, Wardlow and Millarville. Settlers, pioneers, early ranchers also provided many of the settlements with a cognomen. Cardston, was named for Charles Ora Card, Gleichen derives its name from Count A E. Gleichen, Raymond "was christened in honor of Raymond Knight. Our own city svas called Coal Banks a loose trans- lation of the Blackfoot name, the place of the black rocks. Postal authorities called it Coalhurst because there al- ready was a Lethbridge in Ontario. Lethbridge, the name of the first president of the local coal company, only won out officially in 18S5- The oldest slimmer village iu Alborla is named Kapasi- win the Cree word tor camp, and was established in 1918. Kammaskis bears the name of an Indian who, legend has it was struck by a blow from an axe but was only stunned and not killed. The range lake, river and lianiict "11 carry his name. Many places have retained their original Indian names, some with English transla- tions which the whites found much easier to pronounce. Hammer Hill was so called because a Cree was killed in his sleep by an Indian worn ail wielding a stone hammer Ghost River receives its name from a legend of a ghost seen travelling up and down this river collecting tho skulls of the dead slain by the Cree, and there are still many Indian graves there. My own favorite is Ghosl- pine lake and creek. A Blackfoot band raided sleeping Crees and murdered every man, woman and child. Only one Cree warrior es- caped. He was on a hunting expedition at the time. Finding lus family and friends dead and mutilated, !io painted his lace black in mournir.g and set oat on the trail of the Blackfeet. Ho managed to kill and scalp many of the band. For years afterward, the Crees avoided tho place as they thought the region was haunted by those who had died. Their belief was strengthened by the shape of a very strange pinetree near- by. j-amily Early registration advised by YWCA Sixty-four years AW1 Mrs, Edna Ridley, centre, was presented with a cor- sage during -the 52nd annual conference of the Alberta Women's Institute, for her many years of service with the oroanizalion. She joined Ihe institute in Ontario in 1909 and came lo Alberta in 1912. Mrs. Ridley and her hus- band have been residents of Taber since that time, and have attended five international conferences as well as numerous regional conventions. Shown with her are Mrs. Catherine'Habberfield, left, director of districl four; and pinning the flower is Mrs. Marion Alexander provincial president of AWI. Rural education concerns AWI By JUDE TURIC Herald Staff Writer Over 500 women of the Al- berta Women's Institute, dis- trict four, made recommenda- tions on the Worth Report on Education Wednesday. Branch representatives at Ihe two-day conference at the Park Plaza Tuesday and Wed- nesday, drew up a brief to be presented to tho education de- partment Catherine Habberfield, dis- trict four director, lead the dis- cussion and summarized points n the brief of particular inter- est to rural women. She expressed tho opinion that the Worth report on ihc ated with it were out." Community use of schools was favored, as well as the usual two-month holiday for students so that they might "get away from the tension of the school scene." The re-evaluation of teach- ers by qualified personnel, on a five-year basis was part of the brief as well as fixation of wages according to competence and quality, rather than de- grees and experience The AWI condemned the use drugs for behavioral intelli- gence or other changes on normal children, including such use by experts. They agreed to use by doc whole was good, although it j had "more of the urban needs in mind and disregarded the needs of tho rural people" af- fected by it. Of concern to the AWI was tho hardship of bus travel on rural students. The sugges- tion of dormitories was reject- ed, as it was felt formal educa- tion was important but "it must not take priority over parental guidance." The women's group put forth Ihe following as recommenda- tions: The suggested year round use of schools was seen as a possibility if difficulties assod- tor's prescription only, and tha' only as a last resort 'for those mentally or physically ill. Part of the report dealt wit the abolition of Grade 12 ex a ruinations, with the group stat ing that they held reservations about this action. They asked that results b watclied carefully, and exams be reinstated should signs failure in the system appear. The question of specialized chools, with the student al- ed to attend the school of choice, was regarded as ood for exceptional children r slow learners. But on a provincial basis, it .-as felt this sytem would be 1 no benefit, considering the rural bus system. Pre-school and adult ed- ucation via television network were endorsed by the group providing it could be put into ;ffcct across the province and not restricted to cable It was said that such a net- work would prove to be good for preschoolers in rural areas where kindergarten was out of the question. Along the same lines, the group vetoed the possibilities of Registration for the spring ession of YWCA programs s being hsld this week a t the YWCA office, 604 8th St. S.
