Population is now Questionnaires circulated in heavily built Slaterville west of Cranbrook's former yard, row in city limits, appear to favor ex- tention, as does the Little Van Home triangle between South Van Home and Confederation Park wedging in to present Tenth Ave. and South Third Street intersection.

Mile long King Street from present limits west of the old St. Eugene Hospital property has expressed opposition, pre- ferring to organize a rural local improvement system.

Disadvantage would be addi- tional varying mill rate de- pending on assessment. Extension would require for- 'mal petition to the city of quali- fied property owners in exten- sion area, and could be enacted by the end of 1970 if no vote were required. This would make the expand- ed city eligible for one-half the provincial property taxes col- lected in 1970 for extension area, after which extension area would transfer to city tax rolls.

One of the patients trans- ferred at that tim? was Miss Edna Humphries, who had spent 44 years of her life there, a polio victim since the age of 9. With the disappearance of the old hospital, another link with the historical past will be brok- en. The town's first hospital was an emergency one, with 10 beds, built within the old fort estab- lished by Col. J. F. Macleod in 1874. It was erected under the supervision of Dr. Richard Bar- rington Nevitt, assistant sur- geon, to Dr. George Kittson, the town's first doctor. In 1877 the famous Indian Chief Crowfoot, was a patient there. When Dr. Nevitt attended In- dian patients he always wore the robes of a medicine man, to gain their confidence and good- will. When the old fort was aban- doned due to flooding, and the NWMP moved to higher ground, a new hospital was es- tablished ill 1896 in a small frame building on the river bot- tom. The first matron was Miss Daisy Hale of Medicine Hat and the doctor in charge was Dr. George Alexander Kennedy, who had travelled to Fort Ben- ton hi the famous stern wheeler "Missouri Travelling with the 21 year- old doctor was the internation- ally famous Mark Twain. Dr. Kennedy died hi 1913, and is buried here. His son. Dr. Alan Kennedy followed in his footsteps, and became a medi- cal practitioner in Macleod, Dr. George Kennedy was the first inspector of hospitals for the North West Territories. He was sent to Fort Walsh in 1879 to give personal medical attention to Chief Surgeon Kitt- son, then seriously ill with ty- phoid fever. On June Dr. Kennedy was given a fascinating per- mit, signed by the Hon. Edgi Dewdney, then the Lieut. Gov of the North West Territories. Issued at Regina (permit No 21) it allowed the doctor to se! not more than one pint, (eac accompanied by a medical pre of various spirits, a. listed, whiskey, brandy etc. NURSES The first -graduate nurses in southern Alberta were Miss M Kniseley and Miss A. Andrews The rules set forth for nurse in those days make interesting reading: 1. Every nurse will be expect ed to perform any duty as signed to her, either at the hos pital or where sent to privat cases among rich or poor, in any part of the North Wes Territories. 2. She must spend at least 1; minutes in the open air every day, either within or off th hospital grounds, unless ex cused by the lady superior. 3. Must attend church once every Sunday. 4. She must not receive gen tlemen Mends in the parlor ex cept by special permission o the superior. One of -the first trainee nurses to arrive from the eas was Miss Emmiline Alexander a graduate of Montreal Hospil al, who came in 1898. In 1912 admissions to hospita averaged only eignt or nine pel month. In those days the mos frequent causes for admission were appendectomy, typhoi< and tonsillitis. Some entries record tha members of the NWMP were often admitted suffering from gunshot wounds, and many other patients were treated for alcoholism. By 1918 rates charged were per day for private ward; semi private and for pub lie ward. X-ray charges were lower limbs shoulder am Hugh spine, pelvis etc. to teeth and head The fluoroscope cost The town is now served by a modern hospital, built in 1958 ai a cost of POT-LUCK TTOWDY!

WHO LOST IN BARNWELL... SUPER SUGAR SENSOR "The most exciting develop- ment in sugar laboratory instrumentation to come forward in the last 40 years" is the comment of Canadian Sugar Factories' chief chemist Malcolm K. Favielle, Vancouver, os he demonstrates the simplicity of operation of a new Zeiss automatic polarimefer in the beet research iab at the Taber plant. The instrument analyses sugar water with absolute accuracy to one-hundredth of one per cent ax compared with the traditional eye judgement of one-tenth per cent accuracy. The 200-pound instrument, of German design and manufacture, is completely "solid state" built into a resilient-mounted stainless steel block, with two simple controls on-off switch and zero setting. 8 MII h K r- V. r V Roundup of District News f FSfl I -BTTV Complete Project NATAL (HNS) All the units of the recently opened Senior Citizen housing project are now ready for occupancy.
