Day heads Fort Socreds FORT MACLEOD (Special) W. L. C. Day of Fort Macleod has been named president of the Fort Macleod Social Credit Association. Other officers are: Paul Zalesak, Picture Butte, first vice president; Albert Pasterski, Picture Butte, second vice president; Ed Kettle, Claresholm, third vice president; and Ernest Dixon, Fort Macleod, treasurer. MLA Leighton Buckwell told the gathering of 40 people the "high principles" of the past must be maintained but a "new approach" is necessary. Warner representatives named WARNER (Staff) Coun. Elda Mueller of Wrentham has been named the County of Warner delegate to the County of Warner Health Unit board. Coun. Murray Holt of Raymond is the alternate. Coun. Holt was named delegate to the Ridge view Lodge board and the alternate is Coun. Marvin Dahl of Raymond. All councillors, Reeve John H. Otto, deputy reeve James P. Blackmer, Don Christensen, Victor Pittman, W. Jay Snow, Leif Trockstad, Mueller, Holt and Dahl, were named to the welfare, health and disaster services committees. The disaster services committee unit representative is Reeve Otto and the co ordinator is Bert Nilsson of Warner. Coun. Christensen was named to the Sunshine Seed Cleaning Plant and Coun. Snow to the Border Seed Cleaning Plant. Alter- nates are councillors Dahl and Blackmer respectively. Kimball Anderson of Raymond and field man Don McCoy were reappointed to the reclamation committee. W. G. Jones and secretary treasurer Ken Duncan were reappointed social assistance officers. Lighting proposal tabled TABER (HNS) A proposal for the installation of runway lighting at the local airport has been tabled by town council, pending assurance from the ministry of transport that grants are available. Airport administration committee chairman Morris Thompson told the council that recent developments have made the installation desirable this fall. Commencement of aircraft servicing by W. T. Aviation Ser- vices Ltd. at the airport, the use of the landing strip as base for Jack Kinniburgh's charter flight service, and a recent upsurge in flying activity here, coupled with the limited daylight hours during the short winter days, point up the necessity for the in- stallation of lighting now. An application to MOT for financial assistance made last May has been delayed in Edmonton pending the licensing of the airport, which in turn hinged on certain facilities at the airport just now being provided. Council was not averse to putting up the more than required, but did not want to be out on a limb if a covering grant is not forthcoming. Mr. Thompson said the committee has been advised that funds from the federal treasury are not available during the pre- sent fiscal year. Any allocation would have to come from the 1975-76 budget after next April 1. Mayor Arthur H. Avery said the danger lies in having the work completed before the application is approved by federal authorities, in which case they could say. "The work is com- pleted, hence you don't need the money." The committee will now seek assurance from ministry of transport officials that proceeding with the lighting project now will not jeopardize the town's chances of receiving financial assistance after the work is done. Drive raises at Taber TABER (HNS) Central School students and Taber people have donated some aid to the famine stricken nation of Ethiopia during the Hallowe'en trick or treat activities. School principal Morgan Johnson says elementary school pupils collected S175. Funds collected locally are matched by the provincial government and total provincial funds are matched by the federal contributions. In 1973. Alberta school collections totalled in the program which has taught thousands of Canadian children the blessings assured by helping children of their own age in developing countries who do not have enough medicine, food, teachers or school supplies. CRANBROOK (Special) The federal government's new airport, which will be operated by the City of Cranbrook, was opened this week. Cranbrook alderman Don Sherling cut the ribbon. Said Mayor Ty Colgur: "The old building was tremen- dously inadequate. There was no baggage room or waiting room. Our first planes were small but later we got DC6s carrying up to 50 passengers.'" Aid. Sherling said some of the larger aircraft, such as D47s, can land now although there is not enough room for them to take off. "It's a kind of safety fac- he explained, noting that if a plane gets in trouble it can land here in case of emergen- cy. More than passengers made use of the facilities in the past year. It is expected the number will rise to next year. Recent laws now permit the federal government to pick up the whole cost of the airport. "All we do is operate said Mayor Sherling. Kirkwood Construction Ltd. of Vancouver started the pro- ject in mid January. There is a 150 car parking lot and a 24 hour lunchroom service. It offers all weather landing installations, a foot runway, electronic aids and emergency power. Cranbrook building stable CRANBROOK (Special) City building inspector John Davis issued 34 building per- mits in October, authorizing in construction. The permits covered 39 housing unit starts. Thirty of these were for low rental housing under a federal provincial plan. An additional 14 units in this class are expected to be issued this month. A total of 241 permits have been issued this year, authorizing in construction. Last year at this time 322 permits had been issued for in construction. There were about 164 hous- ing starts in the period both years. Fourteen Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation low rental units will be located in a new subdivision on 14th Ave. in the vicinity of llth St. Pincher land survey shows lack of selenium The selenium survey con- ducted on land in the Pincher Creek area shows there is a deficiency of the non metalic chemical in many regions. Government officials say this could be a contributing factor in white muscle disease in livestock, weak calves and scours. Of 100 samples taken, 39 showed less than 100 parts per billion selenium content, con- sidered deficient in the chemical. Farmers in the Pincher Creek area can go to the dis- trict agriculturist office to have the results plotted on a map to determine the selenium content of the land in their area. Bob- Lyons, district agriculturist in Pincher Creek, says his municipal dis- trict is potentially deficient in selenium and farmers are ad- vised to contact their veterinarian for instructions on feeding or injecting the chemical.
