Spring work PINC'HF-Il CRKEK (Special) Warmer temperatures after a hard winter enables ni a n y farmers to start spring work. While in most cases the high- er ground is all that can ho worked at the present, somp have started cultivating and in some instances some seeding is under way. The pastures are nrecning well with the advent of higher temperatures and the winter wheat is showing considerable growth, other than where the wind has cut it off in s o m a areas. Snow hanks arc still causing the ranchers tniuble. with cattle moving over them to greener pastures. Cattle that are usually movcd around the first of .Juno may have to he held hack for a week or so until more ham ground is evident in the sum- mer pastures. PLEASED AS PUNCH Taber Central ichool prin- cipal William R. Broadfoot views a plaque presented to the school by Grade 4 pupils of the Hanna Elementary School. They were on a tour of southern Alberta agricul- tural industry and stopped at Taber to see the vegetable cannery and a strip coal mine in operation. They were billeted at homes of Central School grades 4 and 5. The embossed plaque, featuring the Canada Goose, bears Inscription "To the students and staff of Taber Central School in appreciation of'your unselfish hospitality end co-operation in making our tour such a Gibb Photo Are you at your summer vacation The j scientifically advanced, nutritionally sound, 'Weight Watchcrs'prograrr1 can help you get there.

In a letter to the board, Mrs. L. Acklcs, secretory of tnc sociation. asked that the site decision be reconsidered due to "extreme wind conditions in the area near the Spar Del Trailer Court" where the board proposes to build a new school. Mrs. Ackles said the associa- tion also questions the action of Sparwood municipality, which, she said, refused to sell land near Wilson Creek to the board. The EVLPA stand is that if 1 the municipality is reserving land at Wilson Creek for pos- sihle development of housing, i then that is Ihe area where the school should be built. The hoard disagreed.

REGINA, SASK PHONE 513-2627 ALSO AVAILABLE BEHIEN WICKES BINS rpHE poet once wrote, "Whet is so rare as a day in June." We could easily change this to read, seeing that sunshine, green grass, flowers and other choice ingredients of Spring appear briefly from time to time. There is no question but that this past winter was grim. The week-ends of late give the idea that someone did not get enough snow and the back or- ders are catching up. Sheets o f purple crocuses clothe the slopes of the Porcu- pine Hills in places. Other pos- i ics are close in appearance. Those who have wandered j about Alberta know what a large area in wooded country has few7 if any crocuses. A few Wolf Cubs and Scouts are aware thr-t 1h? crocus has no petals, but, rather, a col- oured calyx. In these days when spring hikes are a MUST get the boys out on a nature ramble. Take the magnifying glass along and give a hint as to what to look for. You can even get a group pressing select samples for mounting. I say: "Can you use a Naturalist's I From Merrickvillo, Ont., j comes a claim to be the very first troop of Boy Scouts in I Canada. It was in "1808 that the j Rev. Ernest Thomas had a troop of 30 boys. In 1911 the troop folded brief- ly only to be revived later. Now comes word that Hev. Harold Krmpling, United Church mm- I isler, is trying to revive the j original charter with the desir- ed name: First Canada Mer- rirlivillc Troop." We wish this i troop the very best. i As we were saying. Spring j calls for rambles and inevitab- ly that calls for outdoor meet- ings which often as not give rise to campfiros. I Now a good campfirc is as different from a bonfire as a crocus is different from a j rose. Campfircs call for ceremoni- ous openings and closings, such sui-prisos as lighting by remote control and even such elements j as campfire blankets and head- gear. the fire is lighted the campfire chief is not present. He is summoned by a messeng- er and on making his appear- ance all rise. H is he who opens 'the fire by due ceremony with just such words as: "Who hath smcit wood smoke at twilight? by Ruilyard Kipling. He may then begin the program or that may he the privilege of i some one else. 1 Certainly, vigorous, rousing songs take the greater portion of the first half. Intersperse 1 with yells, campfirc games and the like. Spirituals and quieter songs vie with yams for the latter part. Skits are well worth j while am! are an excellent way of self-expression. Toss in Ihe Leader's Five Minutes and a reading of Ihe day's log. a pray- er and the closing. A good Hos- inK indeed is the one beginning, "Prep peace of the running wave to you. Learn Ihe pongs and chor- uses, do not depend on song- sheets and books at. an actual campfire. Introduce new songs, skits and yells from time lo time. Swap good songs and skits with other groups. Make sure that all stories, skits and yells arc in good laslc. Like every other part of Scout or Cub Ic.iding proficiency in running a campfire is acquired by much practice. Keep food away from a camp- fire. Practice fire safely by making full arrangements for putting Ihe campfire OUT be- fore leaving your campfirc area. If the evening is chilly have the boys put on their Campfire Blankets. A towel fastened around the head can make the Arab style kaffiyah. Dressing up is fun as well as comfortable. We do hope the second work party at Camp Impccsa gets better weather. Remember this is May 19-20-21-22. "Once more j into the breach, dear friends.

A letter will be sent to Health minister Neil Crawford asking that a 15-bed auxiliary ward be added to the Border Counties Hospital. A letter of thanks was re- ceived from Mrs. Hugh Me- Lachlan for Ihe Alberta Her- itage books. WI members will operate a a concession booth at the Writ- ing-on-Stone Rodeo. Roll call involved stories about "How 1 met my Hus- band." Tea prize was won by Mrs. Norman Archibald. Following the meeting Mrs. Robert Hulit showed the group being and physical comfort of others so Uglily that they sac- rifice time and effort to learn. After all this is what first aid how to make Macrame knots, really is, making someone move comfortable and keeping him alive.
