Organized in May. 1936. with no specific aims be- ministering to the -a-ell being and comfort of its members, the High River club has maintained an unbroken record for forty years. When the club was founded the guiding spirits of that time chose commodious rooms >n the Lane and Emersoa block, and the passing of the years has brought a oi change. The club still occupies the same quarters and has stood firm against anv drastic alterations. As a result, an old member after 35 or 40 rears absence could travel blindfold up the same flight of stairs, turn to the left, and find, waiting to erJold him, the same comfortable chair. The welcoming hosts on Saturday evening headed by Tom Mer- riam. president, and J. F. Casteel. secretary. The club is flourishing, with well over 100 members. In the early days the majority of members were townsmen, but in the modem scene tins is reversed and almost 80 per cent of the membership is from the country. At the outset the club was for- tunate in enlisting in early mem- bership many of the most vigorous and colorful of the pioneer settlers. Quite a number of the early per- sonnel have died, but in their day they contributed largely to southern Alberta development, and added zest to club life.

Historic Poker Games There are great tales of historic poker games amongst old-timers resources could stand the strain, and in the early days it was considered wise to safeguard reck- less youth from the pitfalls of the game. In 1907 a regulation on the books Tras that no bank clerk earn- ing less than a year could be admitted to membership. This noble stand was rescinded in 1911 for rea- sons now obscure. Though, rumors of sensational games were attributed to the club these as a rule were exaggerated, and the greatest gam- ble in High River's history occurred many years before the club was or- ganized. This was a blackjack, game started in a modes; way. but continued with doubling of stakes, the loser. W. T. Iken, was behind bv Without a mur- mur he prepared to turn over his ranch property on the outskirts oi the village to the winner. Bus friends who had watched the game intervened.

(HNS) Once more our feathered fnends are back, fill- ing the countryside with their col- or and song. My favorites are the orioles and blue birds. A pair of blue birds which I watched the most of one afternoon, not only fascinated me. but made me realize that they displayed in- btiacts much the same as we. hu- mans. From their actions It was quite plain they were looking for a lo- cation to build their nest. After surveying the garden, they settled on the hedge for a discussion; their lovely feathers a beautiful contrast to the green of the hedge. From their actions it was evident tliey were pleased with what they saw. Then they flew to the barnvard, making a complete tour of all the buildings. First they inspected the Isrge red granary, without and within. Then they inspected the barn in the same way. The chick- en house, machine "shed, garage, and the pig pens were not overlooked. The large, tin. bushel granary was left to the last. j Having inspected the buildings, they flew back to the red granary, j perching on the track above the; j door for a consultation, which, i {judging from their actions, seemed i j to be an argumentative one. j From Mrs. Blue Birds actions it i head in the direction of her calling. llrs. Blue Bird became alarmed. She gave two sharp calls, and receiving no reply, flew hastily back to where she had left her mate. Air. BUue Bird heard her coming. And believe it or not, the rascal tucked his head uncer his wings and pretended to be asleep. Religious Education Speaker at Nobleford NCBLEFORD. (HNS> Miss Margaret Mann.
