However, be prepared for that nasty snowy or wet day in camp. That means prepare for such an eventuality in your PLAN before you even get to camp. Special measures include shelter, hot food, dry warm bed and a bad weather PROGRAM. Parents have fewer worries, so do small sticks in the tent overnight. FLEXIBLE The daily program must be flexible. Have all kinds of morale-lifting items to keep everyone busy: extra - special cooking, gadget making, supervised clothes drying, knotting, some cracking good book to be read aloud and a singsong.

WEEKES Herald News Service COWLEY - Recently friends and neighbors of Mr. and Mrs. James Carney gathered in the Cowley Community Hall to celebrate the Golden Wedding Anniversary of this popular couple. James Joseph Carney was born in 1889 at Rotherhithe, Kent, England. It was near the turn of the century that he came to Canada with his parents and after a short sojourn along the Mat-tawa River in Ontario came west to Alberta. He grew up on the Mile End Ranch just out of Cowley which in those early days was better known as Frenchman's Flats. ST. ETIENNE Mary Madeleine Petiot was born at St Etienne, France, March 4, 1901, and came out to Canada when very young. She grew up in the Cowley district where her parents ranched just southwest of the present village. They were married in St. John's Church, Pincher Creek, on April 11. 1920 by Rev. A. W MacMichael. William Tustian attended the groom as best man; the bride was attended by her sister, Felicie Petiot. Mrs. George Porter a close friend, was present to witness the ceremony.

PONY CHUCKWAG0N AND CHARIOT RACES PINCHER CREEK FAIR GROUNDS SUNDAY, MAY 17 - 2:00 p.m. $300 IN PRIZE MONEY ADMISSION: ADULTS $1 STUDENTS 50c CHILDREN 25c WONDERFUL FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT on his homestead located along the Tennessee Coulee northeast of Cowley but not until 1926 that he and his wife moved there to live. Horses and cattle were the centre of his activities for long years, especially the former. He broke his own horses and during the First World War broke cavalry remounts for the government. He followed the stampede trail for a few years and knew all the oldtimers. Many times he took part in the Waldron cattle drives. In those days of winding prairie trails, his ranch, as well as that of his brother Bob, was a stopping place between Fort Macleod and the Waldron for many a rider. TWO GRANDSONS Mr. and Mrs Carney have one son, John of Pincher Creek, There are two grandsons, Barry of Cowley, and Dennis of Pincher Creek. Barry has two little girls, the only greatgrandchildren. All of these were present at the celebration. Family, friends and the entire community presented the honored couple with a host of lovely presents. More than 300 guests were present to dance and generally voice their abundant good wishes. Mr. and Mrs. Carney will continue to live in their comfortable home which until several years ago was the Cowley telephone office. Asked about the oldtimers he remembered the most, Jim talked of Emory LeGrandeur, Billy McEwen, Billy Welsh, better known locally as Billy the Kid, Charles Briette, Mickey Reardon and E. Barbeau. These were famous riders and horse handlers. According to Jim the first 10 acres plowed on Frenchman's Flats were plowed by Mose Thibert. His sons Joe and Willie still ranch near Cowley. themselves know that skipper has every situation under control and are ready to cc-oper-ate even more. SMALL FELLOWS Don't be afraid to push the groceries to one side and bunk the small fellows all together in the supply tent, usually a larger size. Get the large tarps or plastic sheets spread out under the bedrolls. An extra tarp for the top sheet adds to the sleeping comfort. Sleeping bags are the modern trend but something waterproof under helps greatly and an extra blanket or quilt over all is worth bringing. Good sound sleep keeps the morale high. WET WEATHER Cool, wet or snowy weather is peculiar to foothills camping. Have each lad ready by bringing a change of clothing. Include warmer garments such as extra socks, sweaters and jackets. Very important indeed is your footwear. High rubber boote keep the pant legs dry and with warm socks are ideal for the early mornings when the grass and undergrowth is wet with dew. Have warm pajamas and, should your feet be cold, wear dry socks to bed., A raincoat or mackinaw does not come amiss. If not needed roll it for a pillow. Bad weather is ideal for hav Lng soup and stew, canned beans and hot drinks. One can appreciate having your camp table under the kitchen fly near a roaring fire Here is where you will be glad that you put a bundle of dry program. Keep an eye on Uiose tight wet tentropes.
