BARBECUE SUCCESS At the recent meeting of the jrizzly District Council of the Boy Scouts of Canada, held to he Municipal office at Pincher >eek, Mr. Groundwater, president, reported that the barbe-que was a success. It was felt hat the location was good and should be considered again, but hat it might be better to hold the barbeque at the end of June and combine it with a closing ceremony or special badge presentation.

Students from Warner, Milk By CA. Weekes Creek to appoint ho CLARESHOLM (HNS) The council of the MD of Willow Creek, at its recent meeting held here, decided to appoint rural hospital board members rather than elect them. Appointments will be made at the next MD council meet-tog Oct. 20. Alexander Maxwell Gibson of Slavcly was appointed returning officer for the forthcoming election of MD Councillors. All council seats are up for election for three-year terms. Nominations will be received between 10 a.m. and 12 o'clock noon at the office here. The matter of the controversial 1080 coyote poison was discussed and it was decided by councillors that anyone wishing to use the poison would require the signatures of all residents within a three-mile radius of the location of the 1080 poison bait. Richard Barringer was hired on a year-round basis as "assistant agricultural field man." The council has received a request from Dave Miller, who farms five miles east of Stavc-ly, to have a road allowance cancelled and reverted to the original title because the road was no longer being used. Council approved the request and now will have to have it approved by the minister of highways. Sccreiary Max Gibson reported his investigations showed the cost of installing automatic warning signals at railway crossings would be approximately each with 80 per cent paid by the federal government and 20 per cent split between the Canadian Pacific Railway and the municipal district. He also stated maintenance would cost per quarter for each crossing serviced with signals. A letter from the bridge branch of the department of highways and transport stated the bridge located north of Fort Macleod would be "repaired and missing pile replaced when our crew is to the area." The treated timber spans were said to be in "fair to poor condition" but traffic volume was council spilal men In reference to the bridge located southeast of Claresholm the bridge department said: "The water course across this north south road allowance drains into an adjoining slough approximately one-half mile in size. The existing untreated timber box is inadequate and washes out frequently. The traffic at this site consists of farmer to land movement and the bridge branch cannot allocate funds at this time to serve this type of road use. It is recommended that the MD construct .nembers to place of the timber box and leave the grade low enough so that floods can spill over it. Councillors were not pleased with the suggestion and passed a motion expressing their disagreement and staling they feel the bridge should be replaced. Council received a number of requests for more gravel on some of the roads which were discussed. Council approved the allocation of grant fluids from the province as outlined by the Claresholm and district recreation board. Agricultural fieldman Ross Bertrand reported cattle owners were responding well to the warble fly control program as was indicated by the substantial sales of chemicals by agents. He reported a minor outbreak of grasshoppers in the Fort Macleod Pearce areas and there was fear the 'hopper outbreak could be worse nexl year. people are as happy today as is Scouter Lew Blair at Tort Macleod. Since getting back from the World Jamboree in Japan, he has echoed all :be glorious adventure and fun that surrounds such a world gathering of Boy Scouts. Apparently he did not get too wet and waterlogged when the monsoon rains hit the Canadian Contingent for three days. Like a true leader, his first thoughts and moves were the boys with him. They and their belonging were his first thought. Scouter Lew has some good slides to show us although some were washed away with the tide, but those he hopes to replace. He did climb Mount Fujiyama as he said he would. After the intense excitement of the whole visit to Japan he did find himself a wee bit weak on his pins and had to take it easy for a few days. Now he is back with the CPR helping the rolling stock to keep rolling. Whoever meets him will get a resume of adventures abroad along with deep underlying purposes accompanying such a world gathering. Some of the opinions brought back are from British and Japanese Scouters. Since the good people of Fort Macleod helped him to go to Japan his slides will be first viewed in that Scouting centre. One problem! Will Scouter Lew's friends be greeted in Japanese or Greek? JAPANESE ACCOUNT The Claresholm Rotary Club had Scout Jim Toone as their guest at their recent supper meeting. Jim went to the 13th World Jamboree in Japan this past summer and, like all others who went, he had himself a time. This he conveyed to his hosts in a well told account that brought a unanimous vote of appreciation voiced by Ro-tarian Jim Hadley. From Brooks comes word that the Lake Newell District is off to a good start with registrations under way at a rate that may well set a new record. The executive is promising the utmost help to new groups who wish to set up packs and troops. The activities talked about for the season will definitely be action packed. Maybe they are going to raise pelicans to Pelican Hall? Contrary to popular belief, From the Cut Bank Pioneer Press a release from U.S.A. National HQ at Now Brunswick, N.J. indicates tlw possibility of a National Jamboree in the Browning, Montana area, for 1973. The realization of this depends on .he ability of the Browning area [o provide the necessary services, to take care of Scouts and parents and others for six days. Bread and milk supplies must be adequate. There must be train sidings transportation to camp, unloading facilities, bus facilities, airport facilities. The Blackpool Agency at Browning will promote this huge affair. Scouts and leaders fron: southern Alberta especially will be much interested to such a gathering so close to home. Good hunting, all! It was Baden Powell himself who wrote Rovering to Success. He really believed to giving away to the innate wanderlust that has, in every age, gripped so many Canadians. Certainly it gripped Bernie Grose of Scarborough, Ontario. He ventured West to the fifth Alberta Jamboree at Camp Woods, Sylvan Lake in late July. Fow young men worked so hard, met so many Scouts and leaders and made such a lasting good impression on all he met. Bernie liked the West and resolved to see some more of it. He accepted the offer of a ride to Cowley where the glimpse of the nearby mountains greatly intrigued him. The Frank Sb'de impressed him deeply. He took a bus for the West Coast to see a brother before heading for the interior, Prince George in particular. Everywhere he went he contacted Scouts and Scouters. On Thanksgiving Day he returned to Cowley on his way back to his home in Scarborough, school and something in the way of a ]ob. He knows what his goal is and nothing will be allowed to stand in his way. In this day of wandering youth it is a delight to meet a young Scouter with ambition, someone not adverse to hare work and a character based on the Scout Law. Happy are all who have had the opportunity to meet Bernie Gross. As he journeys East let us say, "Hap-DV landings, Sparwood recreal may win aid froi NATAL (HNS) District of Sparwood council heard John Walmsley, chairman of the recreation commission, ask if funds made available through the federal government could be obtained to help reduce the cost of the proposed recreation complex {or Sparwood. The municipal clerk will study the details of requirements for this funding and will call a special meeting of the finance committee and Mr. Walmsley to further discuss the complex n Ottawa Bylaws setting the membership of the recreation commission and the advisory planning commission are to be amended to include two additional members on each. Appointed to the recreation commission as an additional member was Miss Dorothy Wettstein. Appointed to the advisory planning commission were Bruno Bevilacqua and Phil Morris. Council also approved the contract with the Regional District of East Kootenay for the sale by the regional district of debentures to the amount of for funds for extension of the Sparwood water system. The expenditure was earlier authorized by bylaw. The regional district also advised council that the cancellation of debenture sale in the amount of on bylaw number 35 was completed. The District of Sparwood requested the cancellation in order to obtain federal government grants for extensions of the Sparwood sewer system. The federal government grants are in the form of forgiveness on money borrowed from that government for sewer systems. A contract for the service of metering devices to the District of Sparwood pumphouse and sewer plant was also approved. Fischer and Porter, manufacturers of the equipment offered a service contract with a reduced cost based on regular service of the equipment. The newly-formed Sparwood Pistol Club was granted use of the pistol range to the basement of the municipal office School bus ivins okay NATAL (HNS) At the regular meeting of trustees of School District No. 1 secretary treasurer E. T. Chambers reported approval has been received from Victoria to go to tender for a new 67-passenger bus for the school district. The move was taken to establish an additional bus run in the Fernie area, thus reducing the need for a second run for one of the existing buses and the resulting delay in returning children to their homes. In his report to the board on the recent convention of British Columbia school trustees in Victoria Mr. Chambers indicated that School District No. 1 was specifically exempted from the normal Department of Education ceiling on budgeting.

Found to have escaped from a detention home in Victoria, B.C., local police withdrew charges of possession of stolen property in order that the pair might be returned to British Columbia authorities. They were transferred to Lethbridge city police cells that evening, from which they escaped during the night. They will now face charges in Letli- bridge before being returned west. Said Chief Const.
