A new manager, a new staff for excellent service, new exhibits and rooms full of the historic jiast should provide hours of enjoyment to visitors from all over the world. Larry King, secretary-manager was most eager to explain the latest additions. The Sir W. G .Haultain Law office, arrival of the NWMP, the originial fort, the license plate collection and the chapel are all new. The Haultain office is complete in every detail. The exact replica of the building is on the original site. The building and the furnishings are the gift of Reginald Jennings of Calgary Official opening of the building will be June 6 and has been declared the museum's cit-izens ctfly* The building is outside the compound. The NWMP building additions include a tableau, a dior- ama and an enlarged sales counter. "The tableau Is already complete," Mr. King said, "Even Col. Macleod's first meeting with Chief Crowfoot on Dec. 1, 1874." The life-like figures take one back 98 years and the heritage they, with their fellow frontiersmen have given us becomes more real. "The lighting is complete and we are in hopes of having the 37 buildings of the Police Barracks, as they were on the island, installed by May 24." Across the room is the counter where a hostess has on sale cards, souvenirs and books telling the hisotry of the town and community. Other books tell similar stories of places in Alberta that might be of interest to the traveller. The Blacksmith and Harness ship contains a complete set of license plates 1912-1969. "The value of this year's additions is $30,000," he added, "Our other new attraction, the building just east of the big main gate, has been converted Into a chapel. "The pews are from a Roman Catholic church and the altar is from the first mission at Brocket." TWO ORGANS There are two old orangs, one from the Methodist church, and the other from the Anglican. The communion table, beautifully restored by Mr. Glen Barr, was from the Mthodist church. "The chapel will be much appreciated by the tourists as a pice for quiet meditation," siad Mr. King. Local citizens, with foresight, organized the Fort Macleod Historical Association in 1957. Anyone can be a member for $1 a year and that includes admission to the museum for the season. The, executive this year Is: Past President Leighton Buck-well MLA; President Karl Frie-sen; four vice-presidents on special committees are finance Alberta Alberta, Swinarton, ad vertMng Andy MacKay; building!. John Davis; archives and museum Muritl Ragan. The firectors include Ted Larson, Wilf Perrin, Arnool Moor-ey, A. A. Neddow, Charlie Reach, Al Hatung, Glen Fisher, Frank Stecler, Cpl. Bob Dafoe, RCMP and Bob Gunder-son, president of the Chamber of Commerce. The curators are Mrs. Annie MacGowan and Mrs. Rider Davis. Assistant manager is Ken Friesen and the hostesses, who will wear the "dress Macleod" plaid kilts are Nora Perrin, Gwen Chambers, Betty Baur-assa, Helen Corbett, Pat Kel-lington, and Lucy Bedingfield. The groundsman is again Lloyd Scott. The Fort Museum will be open from 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. seven days a week until mid-September. The ever growing monument to the founders of the community attracted 60,000 visitors last season but Mr. King anticipates surpassing that figure this year. Broadcasters Accept New Rules ROLOFF - In" loving mem' ory of a dear wife Vio Roloff, who passed away May 24, 1969.

Just a prayer from those who loved you, Just a memory fond and true, In our hearts you will live forever Because we thought the world of you. -Always remembered by her brothers, sisters and their families. 1961 Seal Drive Receipts Increase CALGARY (CP) - The Alberta Tuberculosis and Respiratory Disease Associ a t i o n raised $298,192 in its 1969 Christmas seal campaign. Only Quebec raised more, campaign director Beatr ice Jewett told the group's 31st annual meeting. The Alberta associ a t i o n should always be looking for a five-per-cent increase if it is to keep on the move, she said. Receipts from the direct mail sale of seals in 1969 were 3.4 per cent higher than in 1968. "We only heard from 37 per cent of the people we approached and it should have been 40 per cent," Mrs. Jewett said. "One problem we have is that a large number of western Canadians are always on the move and it is difficult to keep track of them, but since there is an increase in the population in Alberta contributions to the campaign should be greater." By THE CANADIAN PRESS Public and private sectors of the broadcasting industry quickly accepted new regulations Friday from the Canadian Radio-Television Commission and most said they could meet the rigid order to increase Canadian content on radio and television. The Canadian Broadcasting Corp. endorsed the regulations announced in Ottawa. President George Davidson said the publicly-owned corporation was pleased with the rules "because they are completely consistent with the commission's original intention and witli our own goals." Murray Chercover, president of the private CTV network, declined comment until he could study the regulations thoroughly. The CRTC rules require TV stations to fill at least 60 per cent of their schedules with Canadian programming by Oct. l, 1972, and AM radio stations to play a minimum of 30 per cent Canadian music by Jan. 18, 1971. The CBC will be required to meet the 60-per-cent rule by Oct. 1 this year instead of Sept. 1 as had been proposed earlier. Mr. Davidson said the CBC now has 55-per-cent Canadian content and the new rules "are within our capabilities." However, he said the CBC expects to face a loss of revenue and an increase in production costs because of the announcement. MAY END 'COMPLEX' Lorraine Thomson, a director of the Association of Canadian Radio and Television Artists, suggested the regulations will help remove an "inferiority complex" some people have about Canadian entertainment. MPs Jockey For Positions OTTAWA (CP) - Now that Commons committees have been given more work and, ostensibly, stature, there is more jockeying among MPs for membership on the blue-ribbon ones. The top committees are usually those appointed for a specific job.  Special committees now established or about to be set up are dealing with the constitution, election expenses, prices and pollution. Besides these, there are 22 regular committees on every subject from external affairs and finance to Commons procedure and operations of the Parliamentary restaurant. TOP MEN The four political parties like to put their top spokesmen on the special and other important committees to make the best showing with the public. As a result, many of the same first-string MPs turn up as members of all the whiz-bang committees while the same back-benchers serve as members of the less important committees. This has led to a good deal of resentment, especially among the Liberals whose only decent chance to make a showing is in committee. The Liberal back-bencher has little chance to show his stuff in the main arena, the Commons, because the government is always in a hurry to get bills approved, the opposition looks alter nearly all the criticism and there is little publicity in supporting a government measure. Former prime minister Diet-enbaker made an early mark in Parliament by getting himself appointed to as many committees as possible and attending as many committee meetings as possible. He used to flit from one meeting to another, stopping just long enough to make a telling remark in each committee. The result was that newspaper accounts of each committee meeting usually mentioned Mr. Diefenbaker prominently. Such an operation is much more difficult today-though it can still be done-because com- mittee discussions are much more detailed. It is harder to walk in cold on a committee and start pounding the table. When Donald Macdonald, gov-ernment house leader, announced in the Commons the membership of the special committee on the constitution, he added: "That is an all-star cast." NDP back-bencher Arnold Peters shouted mockingly: "God save the constitution." May List Parties On Next Ballot As 'Independent9 Pierre Berton, TV personality and writer, said the regulations are a "landmark in Canadian history." He said Canada must c/.ntrol her own broadcasting to be a strong independent nation. Conrad Lavigne, who operates CBC radio and TV affiliates in Timmins, Ont., predicted two-to-three-year period of "mediocrity" in English-language music. He said the CRTC's ulti mate goal is "fair and excellent," but will take time to achieve. Several spokesmen for Toronto radio stations and record manufacturers greeted the an nouncement enthusiastically. Barry Nesbitt, vice-president and general manager of CKFH, called the CRTC announcement "an excellent move." Gene Kirby, program director of CKEY, said the Jan. 18 date would give his station and others more time "build up good internationally acceptable content." John Williams of Columbia Records of Canada Ltd. said the announcement means "for the first time we'll have a Canadian recording industry." In Montreal, Bill Hambly, program director for CJAD, said his station founded the Ca-nadian Talent Library with CFRB six years ago and "right now we have over 150 albums of Canadian talent." "The music is ideal for our middle-of-the-road type programming." OTTAWA (CP) - In the next federal election expected in 1972, political affiliation probably will be marked on the ballot beside the candidate's name for the first time. However, a wrinkle in the proposed electoral act revisions may mean that Social Credit, Communist and other small-party candidates will be listed as independents. The proposed new act, introduced in the Commons last week, stipulates that any party that isn't now represented in the Commons by at least 12 members, and fails to field at least 75 candidates within a month of the next election, won't get its name on the ballot. In the past, that would have meant listings as independents for candidates for the Bloc Populate of the 1940s, the Rallie-ment des Creditistes, Social Credit and communism. The Creditistes have never run more than 75 candidates, though they have won as many as 26 seats in the Commons. HOLD 14 SEATS But they would be on the ballot the next time, under the proposed law, because they have 14 seats in the current Parliament. , Social Credit, which ran 31 candidates in 1968, would have to run at least 75 to get on the ballot. A Commons committee pro- posed that the cutoff figure be 10 per cent, or 26 candidates. The Commons has 264 seats. The rgument was that a breakaway group in a party shouldn't be allowed to identify itself with the party on the ballot, through sound-alike names. The new law, for instance, would prevent someone from listing himself on the ballot as an independent Creditiste or independent Conservative, to the detriment of the official party candidate. The government raised the figure to 75. A spokesman in Privy Council President Donald S. Macdonald's office said it is felt parties listed as such on the ballot should be national and not local or regional. Whitehead Moves To Maritime^ EDMONTON (CP) - Capt. Bill Whitehead, assistant regional information officer for the Department of National Defence in Alberta, is being posted to Halifax to take a similar position for the Maritimes. Capt. Denny Ryan of Calgary, who has just completed a 10-month duty on Cyprus, will take over the Edmonton position June 8. Matthew Halton Grads Honored PINCHER CREEK (Special) Closing exercises and a dance were held recently for the Grade 12 class of Matthew Hal-ton High School. A banquet was held in the Dieppe Memorial Hall for the graduates, teachers and guests. Mr. and Mrs. Max Gibb of Lethbridge were head table guests.

The class history was given by Miss Judy Lineham. The Grade 12 presentation was made by Miss Elinor Collins and the class prophecy was given by Bruce Mackenzie.

Angry Cyprus Leader Fires Policemen LIMASSOL, Cyprus (AP) Rightist raiders stormed the police headquarters in this south Cyprus city overnight and made off with a large supply of weapons. President M a k a r 1 o s came here from Nicosia today for a personal investigation and informed sources said he angrily dismissed several officers present at the time of the raid. The police headquarters was raided by more than 70 armed men who left leaflets identifying them as members of the out lawed National Front, which favors union of Cyprus with Greece. The raiders overpowered the guards on duty and herded them and off-duty policemen into cells. Makarios has sought to maintain peace between 500,000 Greeks in Cyprus and the minority of about 100,000 Turks by vowing not to give in to the demands of the National Front and refusing to accede to the Turks' wishes for partition of the island. Music Rules Set OTTAWA (CP) - A three-stage formula for deciding just what is Canadian, musically, has been set by the Canadian Radio - Television Commission in new regulations on minimum Canadian content for AM radio stations. The commission announced new regulations Friday setting a minimum of 30-per-cent Canadian music content for AM radio starting Jan. 18, 1971. But the formula for deciding what qualifies as Canadian is less rigid at the start than it will be in subsequent stages starting Jan. 18, 1972, and Jan. 18, 1973. The CRTC Canadian qualifications are: -The instrumentation of lyrics to be principally performed by a Canadian. -The music to be composed by a Canadian. -The lyrics to be written by a Canadian. -The live performance to be wholly recorded in Canada. STARTS IN '71 For the first year starting In 1971, a piece of music will be considered Canadian if it meets any one of those four conditions. Starting in 1972, the Canadian label would apply only where any two of the conditions are met. Starting In 1973, at least five per cent of the music broadcast specifically would have to meet either the qualification of composition by a Canadian or of lyrics written by a Canadian. Once a work has been deemed to be Canadian, a recording of it would also qualify as Canadian. The regulations allow for modification of the requirements by the CRTC where a station operator can demonstrate that meeting them would "result in a significant diversity of program service" within his area. Read Bill To Overhaul Tax Board OTTAWA (CP)-The government presented legislation to the Commons here to change the name and overhaul the structure of the tax appeal board. The bill, sponsored by Justice Mini ster John Turner, was given routine first reading. The justice department said in a news release-there is no Commons discussion at first reading of bills-that one of the major purposes is to provide the ordinary taxpayer with a tribunal that combines accessibility, informality and effectiveness. The changed board would be called the tax review board. The bill would make tax appeal more accessible to the average taxpayer by providing that costs of appeals of less than $1,000 would be paid by the national revenue department if the department appeals a board decision to the Exchequer Court. The board has been criticized because the revenue minister would often appeal a case to the court in which the taxpayer had been successful at the board level. This was especially true in the case of a matter of interpretation which would affect a great many people, Mr. Turner's release said. This normally meant that the taxpayer would have to pay heavy legal costs, and thus was discouraged from taking a case to the board at all. "Reasonable" appeal costs would be paid by the ministry no matter what the outcome.
