Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 20, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, November 20, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGI HERALD _ 3 Group home for boys wins okay TABER (HNS) A pro- posed non-denominational com- munity-based group home for boys, the former convent build- ing at 55th Ave. and 50th St., has received approval of the Taber town council and the "blessing" of Mayor Arthur IT.

COMPLETE BOOK PUBLISHING The Lctlilnridgc Herald PRINTING AND LITHOGRAPHY DIVISION PHONE 327-3203 or 328-4411 When one mentions Wolf Cubs, Venturers, Scouts or Rovers everyone knows we arc talking about our Boy Scout movement across Canada. The first thought that enters people's minds is that each boy has the tradition of doing at least one good turn per day. Some of these good turns are trivial in nature, often mere courtesies. But each year finds that across our land real emergen- cies have arisen and there are boys whose response to meet them has involved great haz- ards, even risk of life. It is the pleasure of Gover- nor General Roland IMilchcn- nr to officially decorate these heroes or, in some cases, post- humously award some Scout, Cub or leader the highest of Scout awards for gallantry. This custom of making awards has gone on ever since Scouting came to Canada. Who is more fitting lo make these than the Chief Scout for Canada, our Queen's represen- tative? This Nov. G saw 23 decora- tions for valor and service at Uirtcau Hall in Ottawa where Mr. Milchencr makes his resi- dence. Three Gold Crosses, one of which was awarded posthum- ously, three .Silver .Crosses, eight Bronze Crosses, five Meritorious Conduct medals as well as a Jack Cornwall Dec- oration and three Silver Wolf Decorations made up the total. Three recipients were from Alhcrta. A Gold Cross is for gallantry amid the greatest danger and is often spoken of as "the V.C. in Scouting." Scouter Tom Smart of Kempl- Yille. OnL, was awarded the Gold Cross posthumously for rescuing a girl from drowning. Overcome by exhaustion, he slipped beneath the water as bystanders pulled the girl to safety. His mother accepted this award. Two Scouls from Ormislown, Que., won Gold Crosses for Ihe attempted rescue of three younp swimmers from river rapids. Scout Dwaync Emery, 12, of Swan Hills who saved a younger brother from t h c clutches of a bear won a Silver Cross. A Bronze Cross for rescue from drowning went to Scout Brent Arac of Wembley, Al- brrta. The late Danny K. Lucas, 9. of Balzac, Alberta, received the .lack Cornwall Decoration for character and devotion des- pite suffering from a terminal disease. This decoration has a Scout fleur-de-lis badge set in a largo C. It is given for en- during suffering in a heroic manner. Exceptional service to Scout- ing was recognizel by award- ing the Silver Wolf to Arthur T. .tonkins of Calgary, Rev. Benjamin tl. Mortlock of Ot- tawa and Seiriol L. Williams of Vancouver.
