J. Niedzwiecki, of- ficer commanding, Lethbridge RCMP sub- division, and Sgt. Jim Persl- ing of the Montana Highway Patrol Friday afternoon un- veiled a rock monument on the border here It occurred at about 4 p.m. with a chilly, brisk west wind cutting the number of spec- tators to about 50 Many sat in their cars. Built by Alva Bair and Lawrence Halmrast of Milk River with rocks gathered from Canada and the U.S., the cairn plaque reads: "Erected 1974 in honor of the RCMP and 100 years of peaceful, mutually beneficial and effective co-operation in law enforcement between our two countries."

On hand were Harold Nelson, newly-elected state senator of Glacier County. Mont., and George Johnston. Montana State representative. Keith Colbo of Helena represented Montana gover- nor Tom L. Judge. Chief Earl Old Person and his wife Doris of Browning represented the Blackfeet nation. Tom Walker of Edmonton, chairman of the Alberta RCMP Century Committee, and Officer Commanding Niedzwiecki of Lethbridge spoke briefly of the history of the North West Mounted Police. They mentioned the Fort Benton and Fort Whoop- up trail and how 100 years and one month ago the NWMP entered the area to end whisky trading and bring law and order to western Canada. While the cairn is about 35 miles west of the historic trail, the NWMP did have a camp near the Milk River and what is now Highway 62 It was a tent camp about six miles north of the border. Police duties included customs collecting and every animal crossing the border had to be accounted for Speaking for Gov. Judge. Mr. Colbo said Alberta and Montana share regional problems "We are going to be facing some very difficult decisions in the future. The type of at- titude and co-operation that existed in the past will lead to their eventual solution." In this regard, Gov. Judge and 30 or 40 Montana officials and citizens will visit Ed- monton Wednesday and Calgary Thursday. Cut Bank chamber representatives made a number of speeches and Albertans were invited to at- tend Montana Bicentennial celebrations in 1976 to mark 200 years of statehood. Charles Matkin of Magrath was master of ceremonies. Mr. Matkin said the monu- ment honors the RCMP and celebrates the "wonderful mutual relationship which has existed these many years between the two countries two countries great and free." He said the words on the plaque were composed by Mr. Spencer of Magrath. Mr. Walker noted in his speech that "not a single shot was fired in anger for over 11 years" after the NWMP arrived.

City Scene Grant offered for food plant COM-PAC FOODS LTD. of Lethbridge has accepted a grant of from the federal department of regional economic expansion for construction of a million frozen food manufac- turing plant in the city. Bill Falcon, general manager of the firm, told The Herald from Edmonton Friday, acceptance of the grant offer is being sent to Ottawa immediately. The amount is more than plant directors were expecting. He said part of the grant is for capital expenditures and another part for incentive for job development.

Mr. Falcon expects to begin processing frozen food entres in bulk the beginning of April. He is in Edmonton now working in co-operation with the Alberta department of agriculture in the provincial food laboratory preparing prototype samples of entres to be produc- ed in the Lethbridge plant. He said the manufacturer of the special quick freeze equip- ment has provided machines to simulate plant operations.

Mr. McDonald was named conservationist of the year in 1SG9 by the Alberta Fish and Game Association, and in 1971 was chosen one of the five out- standing young men in Canada by the Canada Jaycees and received the Vanier Award. He was born and educated in Calgary, and holds a B.Sc. in biology from the University of Alberta. He is now completing an M.

Lethbridge art gallery proposed Southern Alberta needs an art gallery of a stature that could accept travelling ex- hibits, the president of the Southern Alberta Art Gallery association said Wednesday. Dr. Van Christou told The Herald his association is applying to the provincial government culture youth and recreation department for a- grant to renovate the city's old public library for use as an art gallery. Support for an art gallery was shown' by Lethbridge residents earlier this year, and, as a result, the city set aside the building. Dr. Christou said there are "no bonafide art galleries in Southern Alberta, only small display areas." These areas, he added, are at the University of Lethbridge, the new public library, Lethbridge Communi- ty College, the Bowman Arts Centre, and the Yates Memorial Centre. "But none of these places have enough space to bring in travelling exhibitions and they have no real Dr. Christou claimed. He said the art gallery at the old public library would have a professional director with the association acting as a board to handle financial responsibilities and long range planning of gallery programs to coincide with other community programs. He said the security at the new gallery would include proper entrances, guards and other safety precautions set down by the National Museum association, for protection of valuable works brought in to the city. Other areas in Lethbridge that have the display sites would still be used, Dr. Christou explained, but the more valuable pieces of art would be on display at the new gallery. "We would like to be able to bring in works from the National Art Gallery in Ot- tawa as well as other touring exhibitions, national and he said. The Southern Alberta Art Gallery Association has also decided to launch a membership drive, "to find out how broad the support is in the South." "The association was incor- porated in August and these new members would be founding Dr. Christou said.
