Fire officials consider replacing ambulance TABER (HNS) Officials of the Taber fire department and two municipal councils recently witnessed an Alberta produced ambulance demonstration here. Fire Chief A. W. Bill Lord was in charge. The unit consists of an am- bulance body built on a i-ton truck chassis by Ambuc.raft. a division of Woodland Motors of Innisfail. Attending the dem- onstration, in addition to Chief Lord and assistant Ken Bullock, were Mavor A. H. A very. Keeve Clarence M. Jespersen. and a number of town and municipal coun- cillors. The demonstration vvas held for a committee responsible for assessing the need for a new ambulance. Mr. Lord's report for September covered two am- bulance trips to Lethbridge and two to Taber. along with three local and three municipality calls to the Taber General Hospital. Mr. Lord also reported one fire during the month, with some damage resulting from a vehicle fire at the depart- ment of highways and tran- sport shop at the north boun- dary of town. The fire was out when the fire department arrived. Beavers. Cubs, Scouts and Venturers registered recently at the Brooks Pelican Hall. Fees were set at S7 for a one- boy family: S12 for a two-boy family: and for a three- boy family.

Last year 51 boys registered and kept ac- tive in scouting and cubbing all winter. The committee named Mike D'Andrea president. Others are Fran Molnar, 1st vice- president; Lola Albert, 2nd vice president; Carole Cressman, secretary: and Bob Gunderson, treasurer. District representatives are Mike D'Andrea, Lola Albert and Anna Grier. The phone committee comprises Vi Procyk, Doreen Friesen and Veronika de Peuter.

The annual Cub bicycle road-eo is set for June 7 at the Taber Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints stake centre parking lot. Scouts will bold their camporee the same night with cubs invited to an evening campfire. So it looks like Taber and Flatlands cubs and scouts have it all planned. The 1st Shaughnessy Pack is out to gather rags, something most folks have, and fairly easily marketed too. With boys from both Shaughnessy and Diamond City to get around for these the response should be good. Congratulations go to Scouter Jim Gormley and his assistants Fred Teyke and Roy Teyke for their smart start-off for the season. We salute Mrs. K. Jordan at the Kegional Office upon assuming a full-time job. Secondly we salute Mrs. Bar- bara Nelson of Stavely who is leaving the Pack after several years of wonderful work with her Group.
