Logging dives CRANBROOK Nelson Forest District sawlog scale for April, covering both East and West Kootenay, plum- meted to cubic feet, compared with over 11 million for the corresponding month of 1071. This Is in the face of consid- erably healthier market and price situation. The apparent reason is in ex- traordinary snowfall since the big drop; over two million cubic feet was in spruce which is high altitude, and major spe- cies, and yard inventories for spruce were high. Highway hauling weight re- strictions in late March follow- ed by woods closure for spring runoff have most operations coasting on their yard inven- tories now. April weather has not favor- ed woods runoff with a tremen- dous volume of snow remain- ing. Total Kootenays scale for the year so far is cubic feet, slightly higher than the volume for the cor- responding four months last year.

Andersen Photo Barnwell School gets By JOSEPHINE GR1GOR Herald News Service BARNWELL The Barn- well School is undergoing a "face-lift" on its exterior. The painting crew is apply- ing a fresh green coat of paint to all the stucco. The older brick part will re- main as it is. For the past three months renovations have been carried on in different sections of the school. Two rooms on the second floor of the old part were, com- bined to make a new library. Tliis project was undertaken last fall at the beginning of the term but the painting took place in February. It is a de- lightful room now for Ihe chil- dren. SCIENCE LAB Two of the junior high rooms on the north end of the school were joined for a science and laboratory room. Found here are interesting displays of ani- mal skeletons which were found locally and wired togeth- er by the students under the di- rection of the teachers; fossils; specimens preserved in formal- dahyde; and even two cages holding rabbits and hamsters under observation to study their behavioral patterns. All lab equipment is hung on pegboard or placed convenient- ly for use. No wonder the students are getting better grades in science and their interest has really in- creased in these past few months. The interior of the school has been painted for the first time in many years. All the hallways were also painted. GYM FLOOR The most difficult task for the painting crew was the re- moval of all the coats of var- nish and wax on the gym floor. When they reached the bare flooring they painted the dif- forcnt colored lines on the floor that each gym sports requires. Then the floor was varnished.

Steady growth at Pincher v PINCHER CREEK (Special) The settlement pattern for the Oklman River region saw the first settlement of the re- gion occur around 1880. A g r i c u 1 turc provided the main role in the pattern. The need for water as well as supplemental rainfall for growing purposes was inducive, thus most individuals involved in agriculture settled near ma- jor rivers and streams. Railroads brought a majority of the settlers to the areas and were primary land agents. Ur- ban areas sprang up to provide goods, machinery and other es- sentials. Most urban sites were sit- uated along the rail routes and rural settlements were highest near the rail lines. The significance of the rail- road line in determining urban settlements can be illustrated by the fact that within the re- gion only Pincher Creek has survived as a community not situated adjacent to a rail line. By 1911 the settlement of the region had reached its peak. The population at this time was The size attained by I some of the commiuuties was quite significant. Pincher Creek from 1951 to 1961 experienced considerable growth. The most significant change was the fact that be- tween 1951 and 1901 Pincher Creek moved from being the 10th largest to the third largest community in the region.

All the other ma- jor urban settlements changed their positions slightly with the exception of Clares- holm which moved up to fourth place from eighth. The population of Pincher Creek in 1911 was 1.027; the 1971 census showed Mrs. Bullock marks birthday TAKER (HNS) Mrs. Clara Fullmer Bullock was born in Spanish Fork, Utah, April 21, 1886, which makes her 86 years.
