TRESPASS ACT The Wildlife and Trespass Act also came in for some critical discussion. Helmut Enlrup, surface rights specialist with Unifarm, warned the landowner to beware of signing contracts with oil and utility companies before getting qualified advice. Individual lando^vners are not usually in apositionto deal with a "landman." A similar association has been organized in the Cochrane district and its president. Newt Gilbert, was on hand to outline the aims and objectives of the organization. He thought that the two associations should keep in close touch as their aims and objectives are the same.

(Jack) Johnson, an oldtimer of the soMih MacLeod district, recently observed his 90th birthday at the Pioneer Lodge. By the ripe age of 13 he had been bitten by the call of the wide world. He left his native Sweden and moved to England. He left England in 1902 and ] came to Canada. He arrived in Fort Macleod' on June 15, 1903, and began working on the CPR's boarding car department. Recalling some of his experiences he remembers that there were more people living in the Barracks (NWMP) than there were in the town of Macleod. The CPR sent the "car" out for different gang jobs, at times tiiey cooked for as many as 455 men. One three-week stint that stands out in Mr. Johnson's memory is the sad story of the Ban- Colonists. It seems that this Mr. Barr gathered people in England and told them of the great opportunities in Uie new world. Some 4,000 sold their property, handed over the money for Barr to buy them land in Canada and make all the an-ange-ments for movmg. Passage was secured and they reached Winnipeg. There tlie fraudulent Mr.  Barr was found out. Arriving in Saskatoon, then a town of 160 people the 4.000 found nowhere to go, no land, no money. The government was called in and they, in tmTi hired the CPR to look after feeding these people until they could be provided for. The story ended on a happier note as most of the people were finally situated in the Lloydminster area. In 1908 Mr. Johnson bought a half section of farm land in the Ardenville district. He farmed there until retirement in 1946. A bachelor, his experience on the cook car made him the envy of most of the housewives in the community. Some of them still recall his famous raisin cookies. Upon asking him for the recipe liis answer was, "They were very simple, | just one, two, three and tliat's all there is to it," then he added, "of coiu-se, that gives you lots of room for alterations."'
