Airport to open Aug. 25 TURIN (HNS) A touchy issue of whether or not to combine the pupils of Turin and Iron Springs into one school spurred a lively dis- cussion when residents of Turin and district met here recently. Families living in the Taber MD with children attending elementary school in Turin d and high school in Picture Butte are deeply concerned about the future education of their children. These parents want assur- ance that if the Turin Ele- mentary School is closed, it will not result in all the chil- dren being transferred to En- chant or Vauxhall. All parents expressed deep concern about the added hard- ship this would place on the children, especially the younger children. They now must travel a considerable distance to attend school. First and foremost, the par- ents are concerned about the welfare of the'r children. Which would be the wiser choice, to continue to operate each school with a reduction Kaiser commended for reclamation in the teaching staff or to combine with Iron Springs resulting in closure of one of the schools. If the school to close was Turin, this would add more mileage to the students al- ready travelling a consider- able distance. Many aspects of the situa- tion were thoroughly aired and some firm resolutions were made. A committee of three Turin and Iron Springs citizens will meet with the County of Lethbridge 26 school commit- tee soon. 1 Elected to the Turin com- mittee were Allan Holthe, Mrs. Harold Dunn and How- ard Dunn with Dean Oseen as an alternate member.

Habberfield, district 4 director, spoke on the provin- cial and federated convention to be held at the Banff School of Fine Arts from June 17 to 22. NATAL (HNS) Kaiser Re- sources' 1973 program of rec- lamation has been approved by the provincial inspector of mines reclamation. W. B. Montgomery. In a letter to Lou Cherene, j KRL Staff Engineer, Environ-' mental control, he said: "This is an excellent report, and you are to be commended for the progress that has been and con- tinues to be made in your rec- lamation program." The KRL program had been submitted to the department of mines and petroleum resources in Victoria. It includes a re- quest for extension of the Sur- face Permit No. 2 at Hanner Ridge. This was granted. Sixty-seven acres of trees may not sound like a great deal in a forest-oriented prov- ince like B.C., but if you take that area out of any mining site in any one year, you are speaking of a lot of ground, es- pecially when you are putting trees into the ground and not just falling them. That's the program set out this year by KRL's Tony Milli- gan, newly appointed reclama- tion officer. He and his crew have already started on their planting program. It will in- clude grasses as well as trees. In addition, about 20 miles of exploration roads will be "dressed slash will be burned, and the Michel refuse dump will be tidied up. In line for treatment this year is Baldy Pit, where 25 acres will be seeded and plant- ed; Erickson, where 15 acres will receive the same atten- tion; Hanner Ridge, where 21 acres will be sown; and the Mc- Gillivray area near Corbin, where 25 acres will be seeded and planted. One departure from former practice is that KRL will this year be using only trees grown in its own nursery. The trees are natural varieties and most are grown from cuttings, which are tips of branches. Use is made only of the pre- vious year's growth when gath- ering the cuttings, which are usually treated with a growth stimulant to stimulate starting of roots. Coniferous types will be planted on the north facing Red, Yellow, White It makes no difference, we'll paint your house (or born) inside ond out in your favorite color.

The cottonwood or poplar as it is also called, has a rapid growth rate and growth of up to six feet in one year has been noted in the nursery cuttings. Tree planters are mostly wcmen and many are on the job each year. Also hired arc students of forestry from universities. Ten women tree planters went into action in early April. The uni- versity students will work on seed experiments and a rec- lamation assessment program. Tony Milligan was born in Timmins, Ont., where his fath- er was a mining engineer. When he was a youngster, the family moved back to the British Isles. He studied agriculture at the University of Aberdeen in Scot- land and was involved in dairy- ing and sheep and hog-raising prior to his return to Canada in 1969. In December of that year he joined the KRL rec- lamation department and re- cently was given the respon- sibility of reclamation officer. He lives in the Elkview sub- division in Fernie with his wife Helen and five children.
