combine to form one recreation board and hire as many recreation direc- tors as it can afford, Max Gibb of Lethbndge. local representative of the depart- ment of youth, culture and recreation said today Crowsnest Pass centres of Coleman, Blairmore, Frank, Bellevue and the improve- ment district, formed a regional board in 1967 But since then Coleman and i Crowsnest Pass Bureau VERNON DECOUX,
