Weekes Here are wilh snow Do your gootl turn lo Hie okilimers near you! And how about Ihosc erratuls to tlie post office and store for anyone who is lied in with little children? We havo never seen a town where there fire Venturers, Scouts and Cuhs hut that the general public is soon well aware of their existence by such kindnesses. Scouters in southern Alberta will be pleased to hear of Scon- ler Glenn Fiddler of Mafirath being presented with his covet- ed Woodbadgr. This took place at a Chinook District meeting recently. Regional Commission- er Eldrcd Palmer made the presentation in his usual inimi- table style. Congratulations, Scoutcr Glenn! School is a place where Scouts worth their salt show the stuff they are made of. Blaine Staples of Bindloss won himself a Gov- ernor General's Medal for his high standing, the third ever ill Medicine Hal Division No. 4.

Trustees reject request TABEE (HNS) Requests for Sunday use of school gym- nasiums For recreational activi- ties and after-school use o{ classrooms for religious in- struction rejected by Irus- (ces of Taber School Division G. The first application was mac'e by Hcv. .lames J. Lynn of St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Vauxhall. on behalf of the Shalom Teen Club. It sought use of tlie Hays ar.d Vauxhall school gyms for inter-denomin- ational teen club activities. The application was refused by the board since evenings are available. Anoth- er reason was interference witli janitorial service since the board of industrial relations re- quires a full 24 hours off each week for custodians of schools. The second request for the use of eight classrooms from lo eacll Monday aftcr- noon at Ihe Chamberlain School, Grassy Lake, was made by Rev. D. O'Dwyer of St. Au- gustine's Roman Catholic Church, Taber. The rooms be iiscrt for religious instruction of Catholic children. Again interference with regu- lar janitorial service influenced the hoard lo table the request, suggesting Ihc use of (lie church's facilities at Grassy Lake along with consideration of the use of fewer classrooms there.

LEONARD TSRE MART trict No. 1 seeking information on a number of matters, including the Village of Elkford's requesl that it be allowed to elect a trustee to Ihe While Ihe delegation did not get the "yes" answer it was ob- viously seeking, both in the matter of a the matter of tionai classrooms, it did get a sympathetic heaving from the board. E. T. Chambers, board ministralor, reviewed point by poinl, the board's move aimed at providing sufficient school (acililies for the whole dstrict, including Elkford. and pointed out the many department of education rulings by which the board is governed. In (he mailer of additional classrooms, Mr. Chamb e r s pointed out that the board can only Justify lo Ihe department of educalion the number of rcoms indicated necessary by population projections obtained from the company or compan- ies employing people in a n y area. In Elkford's case, the company is Fording 'Coal, subsidiary of Conu'nco. Mr. Chamters said that, act- ing on figures obtained from Fording Coal, in which Mayor Keys is a senior official, the board had provided classroom space for about 200 students, whereas in fact there were only about 180. He pointed out thai Ihe fig- ures are nearly always a year behind, because Ihe board must plan lo have classrooms ready by term commencement in September and any unexpect- ed surge in population could not be included in planning until the following year. Mr. Chambers said he bad received a letter from Fording in January, updating previous population figures, nnd Ihis had been taken into consideration in planning for this fall's class- room needs. The delegation in- sisted that the village will scon hnve 2fiO students and the need for more classrooms is urgent.

He promised to have up to date population d a! a on Elkford in the hands of the board secre- tary within (wo weeks. Not so satisfactorily conclud- ed was the matter of a trus- tee. The Elkford village coun- cil had written the board pre- viously on the matter and was informed no one could run for a trustee's post from the vil- 1 lape because of a ruling tha any person seeking election must have been on the tax rol for a full year, or in fact, on two years' lists, A Iward suggestion that village be represented by Elk V alley trustee Len [usil w a; declared by the council to bi nsatisfactory, in the light of an ti cipated and actu al popul a- tion.
