Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, May 11, 1973 THB ttTHBRIDOE HERAID Osing spurs pool MILK RIVER Lowell Os- ing of Milk River has been named president of the Milk River and District Agricultural Society.

GRANT President Osing reported on the results of a delegation to Edmonton regarding an agri- cultural grant to build a swim- ming pool at Milk River. The membership was inform- ed that would be avail- able in the fall when the new grant period begins. A membership committee was appointed, along with a swimming pool publicity com- mittee. The executive was to appoint a pool finance committee. A motion was passed direct- Ing the society to attempt to raise the necessary funds, for the pool construction, by public donation.

Elk Valley consumers plan building NATAL (HNS) The regu- lar quarterly meeting of the Elk Valley Consumers Co-op was held recently with about 40 members present. The executive reported plans are under way for a new build- ing on the light industrial strip at Sparwood. The co-op would like to offer gasoline and accordingly loca- tions for such an operation are limited. They are also planning an initial building of square feet with expansion room for a small service bay where members could make oil changes, tire changes and oth- er minor services to their cars. A poll was taken of the mem- bers to determine if each would pay in additional share capital to provide for the pro- posal. Members authorized the executive to organize a drive to obtain the funds. Such a drive would provide about two-thirds of the anticipated building cost. The remainder would have to be borrowed from other sources. FRAME STYLES FROM AROUND-THE- WORLD Scouting By CA. Wteekes_ I Special from .Nijmegen, Holland: This is a very old city in Holland for It was built by Charlemagne around 800 A.D. when he chose this as his capital for the Holy Roman Empire. Part of his old cas- tle is still to be seen as his chapel. Nijmegen was a Canadian Army centre during the Sec- ond World War. In 1944 Jan van Hof adroit- ly removed the demolition charges from the huge Waal Bridge, thus saying it when the Second British Army es- tablished a corridor from Ant- werp. Jan was killed in the freeing of the city but his name lives on as a Scout hero of the Resistance Move- ment. The bridge today is It was to Nijmegen that we came first on April 5, 1945. Here the warmest accord existed between the Dutch and the Canadians. We found a Scout Club that gave us a happy camaraderie that led to the formation of the Kim In- ternational Rover Crew. It was here that the future Mrs. AVeekes was a senior hostess. She was the Akela of the Keizer Karel Wolf Cub Pack until she went to Canada. This Pack was part of the Group that this year observes its 62nd anniversary of its founding. Scouter Rocky is an honorary member of the Vassistam, the Rover Scout section of the group. Recently we saw a gather- ing of the Group Scouters and Rovers at the Keizer Karel Scout Headquarters located on a beautiful wooded section of the city's outskirts Mrs. Weekes and myself were warmly greeted at a luncheon by the Group Lead- er, Mr. L. A. Van Herwijnen and old friends and new were introduced. Old Troop and Pack logbooks were brought May 5 was Freedom Day. Holland now celebrates the regaining of its freedom by special ceremonies held ev- ery five years. On May 7 there was a special visit of Canadian government offi- cials. With War Graves Commis- sion heads, former freedom fighters and others, they ga- thered in the huge war cem- etery at Groesbeck, outside of Nijmegen, and addressed the large crowds of citizens, youth movements and others. Dutch Rovers assisted as the floral wreaths and flowers were placed at the Cross of Sacrifice. We were not present at the time. But we made our little pilgrimmage after the crowds had gone. As we passed up and down the long rows of known as the Jan van Hoof Waalbrug. His statue stands at the top of the hill above the approach to the bridge. It was from here that the Canadian Army assaulted the enemy positions on the Rhine and moved northwards into Germany to end the war. The actual freeing of the city was by the 81st American Air- borne followed up by the Sec- ond British Armoured DM- sion. The Scottish Regiments of the Third Canadian Army Division occupied the city vn- til they moved north across the Rhine. The sound of the bagpipes was the sound of freedom to thousands of the Dutch people. The Canadians were commanded by Major- General Spry, later Dominion Commissioner of the Boy Scouts of Canada. out and the photos of the wed- ding of Akela and Rocky were the centre of interest. We told about Canadian Cubs, Scouts and Venturers, also about the Beavers now a pilot project. Holland has no Venturers but Rovers are prominent. This Keizer Karel Group has a fine record for good leadership and service. Various souvenirs were left for the three sections rep- resented that evening. Interesting to many was the celebration of Queen Juli- anna's birthday. Flags were everywhere in evidence, there was a school holiday and parades of children in every street. Leading on our street was a topnotch girls' fife and drum band with a stream of children on decorated bicy- cles or with little wagons gaily bedecked with red, white and blue. Parents ac- companied the children's sec- tion as parade marshals and to care for the little folk. These bicycles and wagons were judged for prizes. The band all wore dark blue sweaters. simple gravestones we read the names, units and num- bers from all over Canada. So many were from units that had been found in the Hockwald and Reichwald battles. Among the names recog- nized was that of Lieutenant Colonel Jeff Nicklin of the Parachute Battalion. It is in his memory that the Nicklin Trophy is awarded each football season for the most sportsmanlike player. Nick, as he was called, was only 30 when he died. So many of those who sleep in this hallowed ground were 18, 19 or a little older. No wonder one's eyes fill as we pass along the silent rows of flower-decorated graves. Good hunting all!

NWMP trek has trial run By JEAN SWIHART Special Correspondent FORT MACLEOD The Hamilton Trek '73, a course of studies undertaken by Bruce Haig, audio visual teacher of the Hamilton Ju- nior High School, Lethbridge, involves a group of 13 stu- dents and four adults. They are retracing the original path of the North West Mounted Police from Fort Dufferin to Fort Macleod. A trek designed to iron out some of the wrinkles before the group leaves for Mani- toba next Saturday was held recently. They left Lethbridge and travelled via Fort Kipp to the Oldman River site whei e rum-runners had cashed their whiskey when they heard the Mounties were coming. They also visited Slide Out on the Belly River south of here. Making arrangements at Fort Macleod was Bert Pat- terson, 85, son of a '76 Moun- tie, Robert Patterson. Other people assisting here were Frank Sanderson, on whose property the group camped for the night, ex- police officer Paul Dersch, and rancher, David "McNab. The old Fort Benton-Fort Macleod trail was followed from the Slide-Out Flats to the crossing where the rum- runners made their get-away and went to Standoff. There they battled with the Moun- ties. The party photographed the historic sites. The 20 students earned their rank by researching. Each had a minimum of 80 hours. The top student, John Hoyt, who is assistant commission- er Macleod, has 392 hours to his credH. Other officers are sub- inspectors Bruce Bevan and Betty Hobbs, staff constable Janice T i 11 e y, contables Dixie Bambrick, Karen Park- er, Allan Niilo, Stephen Mchie, Dwayne Lendrum, Garry Kaskiw, Donnia Rick- abee and sub-contables Paul Knight and Kevin House.
