Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta WEDNESDAY, MAY 29, 1946 Armory At Vulcan Under Discussion VULCAN tives ol 21 town and district organi- zations met on Thursday evening la ihe Legion hall to hear outlined a tentative plan for a proposed armory for Vulcan. W. Allan and D. D. McQueen were elected president and secretary. C. R- Rob- son was nominated for president but declined to let his came stand, ex- plaining that inasmuch as he is so closely associated isrith the local he feu 15. would be muca CATCH WHITE GOJFHEBS DEL Glen Powesland caught two pure white gophers near the river, and had the unusual rodents on view in a wire bos on Thursday at the ball grounds. >v-J- more satisfactory to have a presi- dent outside the ariny. At the present, time ihe federal government, is considering building several armories at various points throughout the province and Vul- can stands a good chance of getting ojie here if the people set up a committee and show some real in-, teresL. Before any such plan could be considered it would be necessary to form a company of approximate- ly 100 recruits for the Reserve Arasy. because, of course, the primary ob- ject of such a centre is the build- ing uo of a nucleus of the Canadian armvr In view of the fact that Vulcssi aud district during she war just, past had a very commendable Hiim- ber of enlistments to tiie active services, and many won promotions, it is felt that, the community ap- preciates the value of sound mili- tary training. Also the fine record of local unit fiuring the war years has brought, Vulcan to the attention of the military authori- ties, having twice been awarded the proficiency award. The drill square and building for ihe armorv would require 600 by 300 feet of land. Mr. Allan said that a committee had visited the airport with a view of ascertaining if anv building there would be suit- able If one could be purchased- Two of them did seem to meet most j requirements. Suggested locations, if or when it is built, were dis- cussed briefly. One favored site was on the righthand side of the main west road leading from. toTfn. Another favored a location near the Memorial swimming pool if land could be madg available. It can readily be understood that the erection of such a building would be a real asset to the town. Not. only would the armory be used as a military centre, but, too, it v.-ould serve as a much-needed re- creation centre. This was one point much emphasized at the meeting. Full gymnasium and sport equip- ment would be on hand for the use of the public. Aside from militia and cadets, scouting, cubbing, guid- ing would be encouraged.- in fact. it is hoped to make it a focal point for all sports and youth training. Full time gymnasium and drill in- structors would be on hand to give professional training. Another meeting will be held on Wednesday evening. May 29th, in the theatre at which time Colonel Snow. Officer Commanding 13. win be on hand to give further details on the plan.
