No forum for Taber TABER (HNS) The Taber Chamber of Commerce will not sponsor a pre-election forum for those seeking public office in the Oct. 13 elections. Decision to discontinue the forum program came at a re- cent council meeting where the concensus was that little but ill feelings has resulted from pre- vious similar events. Also affecting the decision was the comparatively poor at- tendance of electors at pre- vious forums.

Separate school district sup- porters in town will select five trustees from the seven people nominated. C. R.
