A well executed version of an Eskimo dog sledge, driver and dog team, the miniature leaves little to the imagination. Clear definition of detail and prac- tical carpentry distinguishes this piece of work. Yet the sledge as well as the dead walrus it bears so triumphantly home is hewn oat of one lump; the chisel seems not to have paused pace as it leaped across the many ioints and curves in this daintr production. Bevelled run- ners.'sawed cross-members, and crudelv put together standard are all there, and even a tusk of the walrus is plain to be seen.

FOSS "While the first construction work in the St. ?.fery and Milk Rivers water development program is only now underway, engineers have been working on the project for many sites, making in- vestigations, drafting plans and doing much other preparatory work so that construction would not be delayed when the "go-ahead" signal was given. In charge of the engineering for the entire program is Wallace L. FOES. St. Marv acd Milk Rivers ir- rigation project engineer for the PJF.RJV. He was transferred to i Lethbridga from Hegina in 1933 to take charge of the development of large irrigation projects in Alberta for the P.F.R.A., and has been as- sociated with the large prooosed scheme continually since, having a staff of engineers working under his direction. Mr Foss was born in Velva, Dakota, on August 26. 1901. and moved with his parents to Swift Current. Sask.. I9C9. He grad- I uated from the University of Sas- i kaichewan in IP30 as a Civil En- I gineer and has been engaged on 1 many major construction -projects j ___ Loggers' Strike Slows Building British Columbia's lumber strike arresting Lethbridges greatest juilding boom in history- While work is proceeding on roost construction jobs which were start- ed, the issue of new building per- mits has virtually stopped as lum- ber dealers explain that at this lime they have no't enough lumber for juilding which is nearing comple- tion. During the last four days of this week the total value of building permits issued at the city hall amounted to only below the issue for an average day before the strike began. Work on construction jobs in progress is exoected to slow dov.-n within a few days as builders run oat of lumber supplies. First Real Setback This is the first real setback to the current building boom which started here nearly 14 months ago and has been shattering all records.

T. Watson are to have the job completed on. the grand- stand and many of the booths be- fore the veterans' "welcome home" celebration in early July. 3he city council has authorized for restoration of the build- ings.. The first job entails repairing and repainting the large grandstand and tearing down the dilapidated plat- form in front of the grandstand.

Firmly established in the grandstand, the birds refuse to and are a constant prob- lem. Consideration is being given by civic officials to des- troying the pigeons. But in youi anxiety to co- operate with civic officials and to supolement your aaeat rations don't go running out after the pigeons with a rifle or gun in hand. City police warn that carrying of firearms or shoot- ing in the fairgrounds !s spe- cifically forbidden without a special permit.
