Lancaster, Fort Macleod issued the commen- dation. MD workmen filled a mudhole so water will now drain through a culvert and helped fill the graves of eight animals killed by anthrax.

"It was buried five feet said Coun. Lowe. "Water won't settle there now." Blackie area poll set BLACKIE (HNS) Residents of Blackie and district area will go to the polls Oct. 16 to vote on the proposed two-mill increase.

Mr. Palmer will begin his new duties October 1. Prior to moving to the Crowsnest Pass he was house parent and workshop supervisor for the Lethbridge Association for the Mentally Retarded.

CRANBROOK (Special) Land will be classified under only one category in the final design of the proposed East Kootenay agricultural land reserve, but a provision has been made for protecting land used for purposes other than agricultural, according to a land commissioner. Bill Lane, B.C. land com- missioner, said last week that one of two land classifications in a preliminary proposal has been eliminated in favor of a single agricultural classification. The change was made by the B.C. land commission before it passed the proposal to the Environment and Land Use Committee for study. The single classification holds adequate provisions for protecting land uses besides farming, he said. Wildlife interests believe some rangeland should be reserved for wild animals. Forest Service officials have come under fire for allegedly allowing weed trees to encroach upon grazing lands.

The increase was effective Sept. 1 and is to pay off a deben- ture needed to upgrade the watar system. The total cost of the water improvements project, as reported earlier, is about with half of the burden being carried by the provincial government municipal waterworks improvement program. Rates for a five eighths inch service line will be raised from to on bi monthly billing. Referendum vote set CLARESHOLM council has decided to hold a referendum on the demolition or saving of the general hospital buildings. Voters will be asked their opinion on the matter in the Oct. 16 municipal election. Voters will be questioned whether or not they favor the town, purchasing the former general hospital buildings and land for municipal purposes. The hospital buildings have been empty for about two years. The present hospital board, with chairman Don Gaudette, is on record as favoring demolition of the buildings. Chartrand to seek seat CLARESHOLM (HNS) Town utilities superintendent Rene J. Chartrand is seeking the seat for subdivision 6 of the Willow Creek school division in the Oct. 16 municipal election here. The incumbent contestant is Art Grant, retired school board secretary. Mrs. George Whitehead is seeking a seat on the Claresholm General Hospital board, the first time a woman has been nominated for a hospital board position in this district. Her hus- band is reeve of the Willow Creek Municipal District. Sugar processing starts soon TABER (HNS) Canadian Sugar Factories here plans to start processing sugar Oct. 2 if farmers can begin harvesting beets Sept. 30 as scheduled. The 1974 campaign will be shorter than in previous years because fewer acres were devoted to beets this year, says Dale Clifton, a factory field worker. He says there are less than acres of beets in southern Alberta. Yields of about 15 tons per acre or slightly under are predicted. "An average tonnage is about what we he says. A June July dry spell is going to hurt the tonnage. Cool weather in August did not help to improve conditions. About 35 acres were lost last month when irrigation water flooded fields west of Barnwell. Council delays action TABER (HNS) Unwilling to commit the incoming coun- cil delays to decisions made by the present governing body, the town council deferred to their successors three matters: A retirement policy for permanent employees with long ser- vice, with a recommendation that a long past practice 12 rein- stated of holding an annual employees and partners dinner at which suitable recognition can be given retirees. The matter of increasing the one half acre exemption from taxation of church property currently if properties are over this size, the entire property is subject to taxation. The Catholic and LDS stake properties are in the taxable category. The formation of a disaster services committee as required by recent provincial legislation, with a suggestion by one coun- cillor that action be deferred as long as possible. Under active consideration by the council is the provision of a communication system between town foremen's trucks, the shop building, and the town office to speed up the business of the town. Water line installed COLEMAN (CNP Bureau) The Crowsnest Pass General Hospital has completed the installation of 300 more feet of steel water line to the hospital.
