ALFRED McKAY EARLY SELLOUTS Two of Penn State's five home football games for next fall are sellouts. Wtdnitday, Octoblr H, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Plan Top Of World Park Northeast Of Fort Steele By PAUL CHALA Herald News Service NATAL, B.C. (HNS1) A pro- posal that an area known as "The Top of the World" be made into a provincial park has been referred to the tech- nical planning committee of the Regional District of East Koot- enay. The suggestion that the area northeast of Fort Steele be used "as a wilderness area" was presented to the last meeting of the board of directors of the RDEK by Kimberley Rod and Gun Club. It has been pushing the proposal for more than a year. Spokesman for the Kimber- ley Rod and Gun Club, G. Mc- Kee of Kimberley, says the proposal has the backing of the East Kootenay Wildlife As- sociation as w e 11 as many citi- zens in the East Kootenay. It was put to the parks branch in the spring of 1969 for study, and discussed with the branch in the fall. The rod and gun club circu- lated brochures over the sum- mer, and brought the plan to the RDEK board in the fall. The board referred the matter to administrators for a recom- mendation. Regional planner Alfred Miller says he will take the recommendation of the techni- cal planning committee to the board meeting. The committee is made up of 19 members of provincial departments and lo- cal boards and civic admin- istrations. It must, under let- ters patent of the RDEK, con- sider any matter on which a regulatory bylaw jnight be passed. ALPINE AREA The club's proposal is that the Fish Lake Recreational Re- serve at the headwaters of the Lussier River be extended to include the unique Alpine area known as "Top of the World" and that it be classified as a Class A Park or wilderness area with no commercial ex- ploitation of natural resources, no grazing permits and no motorized1 vehicles. Hunting and fishing would, be allowed, although as Mr. Mc- Kee points out, the changing habits of people in their recrea- tion point to increased use of the area for hiking and simply getting away from pavement, and hunting will not likely be a big draw to the area. Game population in the area is not large. As forest company officials point out, game will not graze in overmature forest. The area is easily accessible to most places in the East Kootenay, particularly Cran- brook and Kimberley and would provide the only major park in the southern section of the East Koolenay. Crow iJnited Seeks Players NATAL, B.C.
