grove of trees north of the rancher s house Mr Knight told the Cardston Municipal District council Tuesday it is fairh certain the provincial govern- ment will pav the cost of dredging a new river channel It looks like (the province) will probably divert the river there said Mr Knight It should probably be done this fall He said that 7 000 vards of dirt has to be moved I think the province will take the full responsibility If remedial action does happen it s just in time Mr Hoyt s barn and corrals will fall into the river before 1980 if the erosion continues at the present rate of about two feet each spring A good chunk of his corral collapsed with the crumbling bank last spring When the ice goes out and U S irrigation water is turned into the river trouble can develop The shore nest of
