Homespun texture in poet's verse By MARIE SORGARD Herald News Service IRON SPRINGS Bill Dalghesh of Picture Butte has written 3G5 puclua. Some of them prove the pen can outduel the sword. He once wrote a nine-stanza poem that spurred a back to church here. But it isn't all barbed. His poetry may be or humorous. It may be a tribute of sym- or it may be written to denote a farewell or to mark an anniversary or but it has one unique feature its homespun texture which is the result of using local subjects and local in- cidents as the topics. The poem on church atten- dance Twice in a the shepherd's call Will keep the most in Once in the once in the Providing the weather is fine. The poet directed his gentle lines at Barbie's the only clue to the identity of the victim. But in a community as close-knit as Iron Springs there was no chance of the stay-at-home remaining anonymous. When local residents read the they chuckled over the discovery There is a lamb within this flock Who's very I But it gave the others quite a start When to church she did didn't go. She rested snugly in her bed As time was ticking at she gaily said stay at I've a cake to some buns to And I cannot sake I must fix Barbie's for heaven's I have no I guess. A steward for the straying RAYMOND Ray- mond Fin Chief William Hague and some of the IS-man volunteer fire department here want the fire alarm number changed. For some reason the number 752-3333 is too much of a look-alike with private telephone says Chief Hague. Too many people are getting wrong numbers when they see a fire. The alarm system here is much like those in many small centres in the south. There are seven fire alarm all located in the homes of the firefighters. Then when a fire alarm is telephoned the first fireman to answer sounds the general alarm which rings a tall steeple at the fire haU. Mr. fire chief since and a member of the volunteer fire brigade since 1940 for the town of and later for the area of the County of says the town has good fire protection. In 1965 the Town of Ray- mond and the County of Warner formed a union for fire protection for the rural area surrounding Raymond. The town fire hall was moved to its new location. The pre- sent fire hall has accommoda- tion for two fire a work room to keep equipment in working and a club room. The unit purchased by the County of Warner has a gallon water supply and is capable of pumping 500 gallons per minute. The unit owned by the Town of Raymond has a 550 gallon water supply and pumps 300 gallons per minute Fire Chief Hague feels the Raymond brigade has good equipment with hoses that can reach any property in the town from a water hydrant from the main line He it is a constant job to keep up with new and better equipment. Raymond firemen have always found the mayor and council most co-operative in this There are It men who nun the a sufficient number. There a a woman's aux- iliary organized to assist if need be at any time with hot food. Firemen are paid a small remuneration from the Town of Raymond and the County of Warner for rural area fires. Firemen in the past have used this money for club up- the annual Christinas party for children of the firemen and the purchase of jackets for the men. Raymond firemen are free to call on other fire units should the need arise as there are other units within the county. Prompt action on the part of firemen have averted what may have been a large number of major fires in the past. During 1973 there has been only one major fire within the town limits. This was an ex- plosion inside a service station. The building and contents were lost in a few minutes time. The loss was tt'illiam Hague absence soon took Of her For her a faithful watch did O'er every lamb and goat. Although his poetry may not rank with that of William Shakespeare no function in the Iron Springs community is complete without it. His poetic ability may be an inherited trait as his late mother before him used to write hers usually be- ing centred around a Valen- tine theme. His first poem was written for ah anniver- sary and since then he has written many poems. He needs only a bit of background information and the poetry literally begins to now.
