Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta By C.A. rpHIS India n Summer is pretty easy to take. Yet the nights are just cool enough that the old wool blanket comes in handy unless you still have your old camp sleeping bag handy. How are your plans coining along now you ars set- tled into school routine? The wise leader has two alternatives for group activities, a hike or other outing tor warm sunny days, tent mending plus indoor games for a wet or chilly day. Cool days are great too tor soccer yards and other group games. Touch rugby is a popular choice as well. Some Cubs would just love to have a Team Players badge. Is anyone issu- ing any challenges this rail? Do let me know please, fellows. Waterton Lakes had a won- derful going-away. party for Kurt Seel and family. Kurt has been the Grizzly District's Commissioner for several years and has had a real finger in Scouter Training as well as the Buchanan Winter Camping competitions. 'Since Kurt departed for a Headquar- ters job in Calgary we can well expect to see him back on spe- cial occasions. Here's hoping he does get back to us. Mrs. Seel had a smart Pack of Cubs that will miss her. Young Keith will find a city Pack different in some ways and cistsr Kelly will notice slight differences in Brownies. Thank heavens these youth movements bridge the miles and smooth out the adjustments. Getting back to the party, the Lions Hall was filled for a de- lightful pot-luck supper. When all was cleared away the mas- ter of ceremonies for the eve- ning, E. Stopford expressed the regrets of the community at the departure of Kurt and his family and the regrets of T. Ross, the park superintendent at not being able to be present. He thanked Kurt for his work with the boys as well as his ef- forts on the park staff. He presented torn with a purse of money on behalf of Waterton Park. "Cliuck" Dccoux, presi- dent of the Grizzly District pre- sented Kurt with a bciutiful desk pen, thanking him for his work with the District. Those gifts were accepted and appre- ication voiced most gracefully by Mr. and Mrs. Seel. Also on hand from the Grizzly District were Mrs. Flora Mickcls, Mrs. Efflc Smith and Cub Commis- sioner, yours truly. 'Hungerlhoii' For Boys October 10 PICTURE BUTTE (Special) The student council of St. Catherine's Separate School is organizing a to be held in the school for 24 hours starting at 6 p.m. Satur- day, Oct. 10. Only boys will take part. The girls held a similar event last year. Proceeds will go In student council funds. Two remarkably fine films concerned with fishing in the Northwest Territories and hunt- ing an albino moose in New- foundland were shown to round out the evening. Personal fare- wells were said and all depart- ed. The Seels had the moving at their house ready for an early morning departure for their new field of activity. Saturday, Sept. 26 was the day of the Porcupine Hills District's huge barbecue at the provincial park a lew miles west of Slavery on Willow Creek. The weather was ideally warm and sunny. All roads seemed to lead to the site as cars, trucks, trailers and all poured in to this area of ample room set with lovely trees in fall colors. Everything was well organized. It was good to see Scouier George Van Wyck and Commissioner John Slrang, not to forget District Commissioner Lew Blair. Regional Commis- sioner Eldrcil Palmer accom- panied by Scout Executive Bob Jenkins and family was there. The park was full of people as they sat down to a delicious supper of barbecued beef and beans. Over 500 pounds of prime beef was served we hear. With' out any serious hitches the whole enterprise moved smoothly along, a real credit to those, who so diligently lab- ored long hours to make the barbecue the success it was. Darkness fell before all had eaten. After all had finished the move to the campfire site began. A huge truck deck made a stage, the audience had chairs or sat on the ground in a huge semicircle. The camp- firs lit the scene and warmed those around. Lights were in evidence along the stage. Scout- er Lew Blair opened the camp- fire and toned it over to yours truly and the fun began. A pub- lic address system enabled everyone to hear as song after song helped build up the mood. Fort Macleod Scouts had a series of skits that made for audience approval. The First Stavcly and Third Clarcsholm Troops made a right good show- ing too. For the Cubs the fav- orite. Ten Little Elephant Bal- ancing and the song, "Dai's .got a head like a ping-pong hall" got them into the fun. At half time' Scoulcr Blair called up all his district Scoulers, some 22 in all, and presented each witii his or her Standard First Aid certificate earned tins past winter and spring at the Scouters' Club. Some of you may be aware that the new Standard certificate is really THREE certificates in one. It is earned by long hard work. The audience gave the winners a terrific cheer. To wind up the program the oldest song known was sung, "Green Grow the Hushes Ho." Sconlcr Lcp Toone thanked each and everyone for their part in making this outing a huge success. The campfire was closed by Scouter Blair and the great assembly melted into the night. Everyone had had so much fun and good fel- lowship. Good hunting, all!

Miss Wendy .Warren Follows Unusual Career By MARIE SORGARD Herald News Service IRON SPRINGS The var- ious facets of education have provided Miss Wendy Warren, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Warren of Iron Springs, wilh an unusual career. Miss Warren received her public and high school educa- tion .at Iron Springs and Pic- ture Butte. She attended the University of Alberta and stu- died theology in Portland, Ore., for one year. She also spent a summer on the island of Maui where she was. involved in providing theological assistance. Her travels have taken her across Canada to Prince Ed- ward Island, the home of her grandmother, Mrs. S. E. War- ren, of Vauxhall, a well-known southern Alberta writer. Along with all these activi- ties she has also found time to teach school in Alberta and Saskatchewan and to attend the University of Saskatchewan for a year. This summer she attended a University of Calgary summer school session in geography and Latin American studies in the. British Honduras, along with 40 other studenls from the Uni- versity of Calgary. Belize was their headquar- ters for the first two weeks. They stayed with families in the city. The course involved a study of detailed aspects of various industries, and the economy of the country, along with a study of ils people and its history. Located on the Yucutan Pen insula, British Honduras, is re- ferred to as the "heart of the Caribbean Basin" in the north- em area of Central America. The effect of British influence in British Honduras is evident when one compares it with other Latin American coun- tries. On the verge of independence from Britain its people are very proud of their achievement and when it becomes an indepen- dent nation the name will be changed to Belize. It also boasts the second largest barrier reef next to the Great Barrier Reef of Australia with waters that are the clear- est in the world. British Honduras, Miss War- ren found, has a very colorful history of a Mayan civilization that was very predominant when the Spanish came, and of piracy with pirates hiding in the coves. Today's civilization is a melting pot of nations, in- cluding the Carib Indians, who are very dark complexioned. tile Mexicans, Mayans, English, Spanish, and the ne- groe element which came lo Belize City after the emancipa- tion, a very refined class of people. It has a warm, humid climate wilh houses built on stilts be- cause of the swampy conditions. The houses must be at least 10 feet above tho ground in order to withstand the water which comes wilh the hurri- canes. A new capital city, to he called Belmopan, a city of ce- ment structure, is being built inland. Belize, in the past, was noted for ils mahogany, which is now pretty well removed, sHhmigh minor reforestation program is under way. Chicle, the sap of the sapo- dillo tree, was used by Wriglcys [or many years in the manu- facture of chewing gum. How- ever, this supply, now, too, is practically exhausted. It takes JO years lo grow a sapadillo tree, and the chicle, or sap, is removed about three times in the litclime of the tree, Present industries include conche and lobster fishing, the growth o[ citrus fruils, and the jrowlh of sugar cane is becom- ing a major industry. When Hiss Warren, aloii; with Ihe other studcnta liai completed her course and start- ed the long trip home she ex- perienced an unique trip from Vera Cruz to Mexico City on a local train which took fourteen hours to travel the three hun- dred miles between the cities. The train stopped at every sta- tion and during the ride the Phoenix. Miss Warren spent a confronted with vendors selling enchelidas, passengers were tacos, wares, ice and cream, chicken, an assortment cf other sundry needs. After spending three days in Mexico City she visited in few days, at her home in Iron Springs before leaving again for Saskatoon where she will enrol in night courses at Ihe University of Saskatchewan and will leach at Hanley, a nearby town.

Miss Schmalzbairer will be married to Conrad Harty Oct. 10. We won't ninoatonyou when it's forty below. It doeen't make sense to put anti-freeze into your radiator if a tiny unnoticed leak in your cooling system lets it all run out. That may not be too serious back East, where real winters just don't happen. But it can be disastrous out here, so we've devel- oped a new "Prestone" Anti-Freeze formula that will protect your car under the severest conditions. And it won't run out on you at sub-zero temperatures. First, "Prestone" Anti-Freeze can actually protect your car down to below zero. Secondly, if a minor leak develops in your cooling system, the new "Prestone" anti-leak formula will seal it completely, in seconds. And finally, even if your car is old, don't worry about additional rust and cor- rosion building up in your cooling system because it simply can't happen. In fact, the new "Prestone" anti-leak, anti-rust, anti- corrosion formula ifa so effective, we put Ihe Union Carbide guarantee right on the can. This winter, ask for real "Prestone" Anti-Leak Anti-Freeze, instead of some imi- tation. Or get a can and put it in yourself. We won't run out on you when it's forty below. Hole-up forthe winter with new freeze. id I ;
