Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, September LETHBRIDGE Blairmore man meets crewmates By BRUCE DECOUX Crowsnest Pass Bureau BLAIRMORE Max Brown has returned from a Royal Cana- dian Navy ship Haida reunion where he "spliced the main brace" with fellow crew members of the Second World War. It was held at Toronto where the famed tribal-class destroyer, named after Cana- dian coastal Indians known for their sea-fighting abilities, has been restored and per- manently docked. Sixty-five original crew members attended the reunion. They came from all parts of the nation and led a parade of military peo- ple to the Canadian National Exhibition stadium. There they received such applause that the "old sea dogs" were deeply touched, Mr. Brown said. When first commissioned, the Haida was fitted with the latest detection equipment, numerous anti-aircraft weapons, torpedo tubes and depth charges. Because of its formidable power it was assigned to strike forces, along with its sister ships the Athabaskan and the Huron. In 1943-44 the Haida was ac- tive on the Murmansk convoy route and in the English Channel with the 10th Destroyer Flotilla. Here it helped clear the French coastline, (E-boat of enemy shipping prior to D- day. The ship, distinguished herself in several battles and conflicts with U-boats. It com- piled a record second to none in Canadian naval history. During one battle, in which her sister ship Athabaskan was sunk, the Haida made a German destroyer retreat. Another enemy ship was driven ashore and engulfed in flame as the Athabaskan spent her last moments firing at the enemy. Haida skipper H. G. DeWolf then eased his ship among the Athabaskan's survivors. Standing still for 15 minutes, the Haida managed to pick up 46 of the 131 sur- vivors despite danger from nearby enemy ships. It was one of the most daring rescue operations in the war, Mr. Brown said. Today the Haida, saved from the salvage cutting torch by a group of Toronto businessmen, is permanently berthed there. Mr. Brown was a member of that crew. He enlisted here and took his training at Calgary and Esquimalt, B.C., working-in submarine detec- tion. Once the initial formalities and greetings were over, retired seaman Brown who runs a trailer park here, got together with his old mates to toss a tot of rum and "spin again the salty tales of yesteryear." South in Short Headstart begins Sept. 16 BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) Headstart classes will begin Sept. 16 in the Crowsnest Pass area. Children not already registered may do so on the first day.

Foremost teacher elected Old bell resurrected from dank basement By NANCY MILES Special Correspondent CRANBROOK If they ring the bell hanging in the entrance of the new Bell Building on the corner of 8th Ave. and 1st St. S. here it will bring back school memories to hundreds of former pupils. The bell, found in the debris of the excavation from the demolition of the school board office that served the city in a very early era, is about 2Vz feet high and 2Vz feet across. It has two flat sides on its clapper. FOREMOST (Staff) Foremost School teacher Geoff Tagg has been named president of the Alberta Teachers Association Local 12.

New teachers will be inducted tentatively Oct. 2. now worth Lights go up at Taber TABER (HNS) Highway 3 will be lit through Taber this fall. The mile project has been delayed by late delivery of lighting fixtures, a Calgary Power Ltd. official says. Intersections with Highway 36 at each side of town will also be lit. Precast concrete bases for 78 steel standards will be bought instead of pouring the footings. The steel standards are on hand but delivery is late on the lighting fixtures. It is expected the project will be completed this fall. Six double lighting units, in- stalled by the town several years ago between 50th and 53rd streets, will be removed. These will likely be used elsewhere in town. 0-OPERATIVE EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES CONSTRUCTION HELP WANTED Carpenter Foreman and Carpenters required im- mediately for work in Valleyview, Cardston, Innis- fail, Brooks, and Vegreville areas.

Norman Thomas says the home will be located near the Kimberley District Hospital in the upper townsite. Its function as a nursing home will be to bridge the gap of the elderly and disabled between boarding homes and the extended care section of the Cranbrook hospital. It will accommodate 40 peo- ple and is now full. There are eight people waiting to be ad- mitted. CMHC has approved a final Fabco Contracting Ltd. of Kimberley tender of to a 55 per cent mortgage. The federal grant is 10 per cent provincial 35 per cent, and the City of Kimberley has provid- ed for the site. The staff will comprise a registered nurse-matron; four personal care aides, three housekeeping aides: two cooks; full-time secretary and a part-time maintenance man. It is expected the home will be occupied in the spring of 1975. Both Cominco and Crestbrook Forest Industries have pledged substantial contributions. A total of has been donated by four pensioners. One of these benefactors died before the project was realized. Individuals have pledged other Continuing monthly contributions. These now total about SI.000 a month Other district help is being sought on this basis. The home will have a dining and sitting rooms and recrea- tion areas. more cash PINCHER CREEK (Staff) Alberta Solicitor General Helen Hunley has told of- ficials of this town and Fort Macleod that the provincial grant for persons held in custody under section 84 of the Liquor Control Act will be increased from to per day. The increase is effective Oct. 1 and was authorized by an order-in-council signed Aug. 13. Officials of both towns are not happy with the increase which they term insufficient to cover the costs incurred. Fort Macleod Mayor Charlie Edgar discussed costs of maintaining prisoners here when he met with Premier Peter Lougheed at Granum about two months ago. Mayor Edgar says that drunks are often arrested here en route from Lethbridge to Standoff. Pincher Creek has a similar problem. From 1908 its tones called children to line up in the Central School yard for the march into classes. The new office tower was designed by Nixon and Brow- ning, Cranbrook architects and community planners. The firm occupies the upper floor. Firm member Jerry Brow- ning's curiosity was aroused when the bell emerged from the debris. He is looking into its history. More than a decade ago the school board decided the bell tower on its 60-year-old elementary school was un- safe. It was removed, along with the bell that had sum- moned thousands of children to the halls of learning. Mr. Browning believes the bell was "temporarily" stored at the school board office basement until it was found last spring by demolition crews. Among those it could have summoned to Grades 1 to 3 classes here is Dr. Samuel Hayakawa, world renowned educationist who successfully cooled the Berkely University unrest a decade ago. After Grade 3 his family moved to Calgary. The Bell Building is already fully occupied. Main floor tenants are EPEC, engineer- ing consultants, and A. J. Shankland and Company, charter accountants. The Herald' District Vulcanites slow to attend meet on revamp VULCAN Only eight per- sons attended a recent meeting of the Vulcan District Chamber of Commerce held to discover if there is interest in renovating Main Street here It would be done in conjunc- tion with the Devonian Foun- dation's Main Street Alberta program which involves 000 from the foundation if the town contributes for the project. If the townspeople contributed a lesser amount the foundation grant would be double that figure. "We were hoping to get between 30 to 40 businessmen and residents out to examine the drawings and sketches of the proposed project done earlier by students at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in Calgary." said chamber president Cliff Wright. "But now we don't know what to think unless the attendance at the meeting is an indicator." Originally the town was one of eight Alberta communities offered a share in the Devo- nian Foundation grants and this summer the max- imum grant was established It gave local planners an idea of the scope of the grant struc- ture. The chamber will hold another meeting on the pro- ject Sept. 12. AUTOMOTIVE PARTS WHOLESALE Requires APPRENTICES to learn parts trade! not nee- Experience essary.
