Damages were es- timated at about ed the grass on some acres of range Sunday after- noon on Tom Gilchrist's Deer Creek Ranch, 35 miles east of Milk River. The sweeping range fire is believed to have started from a campfire used by antelope spotters in the area. The fire was about five miles long and up to one mile wide at the widest point. It was discovered at 3 p.m. and was fought by Milk River volunteer firefighters for about three hours. Local farmers and ranchers helped battle the blaze. It started in a gully and quickly spread to the open prairie. Mr Gilchrist said it was hard to estimate the total damages. "I'll sure as hell miss that grass after the dry summer we've said the rancher.

The provincial government cancelled the plan. Human Resources Minister Norman Levi told a public meeting here, "It is my inten- tion to agree with you and not proceed any further an terms of using that building for the retarded." Almost all of the 80 people at the meeting opposed the proposed use of the mission The government had plann- ed to renovate the building to house about 70 retarded adults who did not require extensive care. Opposition to the plan, an- nounced in the fall of 1972, has been gaining momentum since the beginning of this year. the East Kootenay Union Board of Health told the minister the proposed home would have inadequate ventilation, soundproofing and sleeping facilities. The residents would have too little privacy and there would be inadequate super- vision, the EKUBH said. Marg Vogan, director of the East Kootenay Health Unit, said: "There's so much wrong with that building that there's no way it can meet the regulations." The minister said local op- position to the plan was one of the major reasons the govern- ment decided to abandon it. "What you have been dis- cussing in this community in the last two or three months has had a very great bearing on this decision." Don Bingham, the human resources department's ex- ecutive director for retar- dation, told the meeting the use of the mission had been planned to alleviate overcrowded conditions at some of the province's larger institutions East Indian child is 'foster brother' of Foremost students Low-rent project costs But, he said, the govern- ment has now relieved the strain considerably and the mission is no longer needed When the province announc- ed the project in 1972, "economically it was quite the minister said But inflation has pushed the present cost up to 2% fames the original estimates. "The cost today to get the building in order is probably he said. Most people at the meeting agreed retarded adults who may be able to reasonably integrate with the larger com- munity are helped more by small, home like settings rather than institutions. These people should have the advantage of an environ- ment "as close to a family situation as the minister was told. There are some retarded adults housed in such settings in Cranbrook and they are do- ing exceptionally well, some members of the audience said. "The smaller group homes are far better for retarded adults and we have ample evidence of that here in said one Said the minister. "There has been a reasonable amount of success in moving people into the community. The process of getting these peo- ple out into the community is very much a part of our policy." "We all feel St Eugene's is not suitable for the retarded but we need a regional college or a vocational said one member of the audience.
