COMING JUNE 4th and LETHBRIDGE EXHIBITION GROUNDS WITH A HOST OF NEW CIRCUS CHAMPIONS ADULTS CHILDREN MEMORIALS By MASTER CRARSMEN Featuring Whenever I ride out to ttw on Peepers the horse with the glass eye like myself, 1 think of how wonderful an ir- rigation system can be. Biding through the west meadow toward Crooked Creek-, I'm shutting my good eye, looking at the good old Birdseye Ranch through my pretty blue glass eye, and dreaming of grandpa. Peepers, my trusty horse, will turn and head for the barn if 1 fall asleep But I can't help it I doze off and dream. Then 1 see my grandpa walk- ing along side a team of horses. pulling a fiesno, dig- ging owl a wide ditch for Mie Bridseye Ranch irrigation sys- tem. Uncle Max is driving ttie team. Crack' A doubletree breaks. The horses jump and Ilie wood hits grandpa a sharp blow on the leg. He's gol a broken leg. Uncle Max him up as comfortable as he can, tihcn heads for Cardston Grandpa lies in the valley beside Gawked Ci eek for a'l of the morning and most of the afternoon and of the even- ing The dream fades, then comes back I see grandpa hobb- ling along a hillside, working with the surveyors. They're marking trees where another ditch will go. The experts said it couldn't be done. But somehow they brought the water down, across wooden flumes, through vending ditches, into a dam vest of the buildings. It's a vast network of ditches. Never acain will the "Birds- eye Ranch cattle know the porch of drought. Today Peepers takes me up to the waitergarte We open it, thgn ride the ditch, shovel in hand I doze off again because life is so good, die poplars are so green, the smell of grasses and mints and wiWiflo-wers are so pungent. And I see an old man, hob- bling along the hillside, mark- ing trees for a ditch. We all have ancestors, none of us is deprived Kind of a nice feeling to know others went this way first. 4-H report HOPING B!
