It is observed as a. legal holiday in Canada, US. A., and. Puerto Rico on the first Monday in September, Labor organizations sensor various celebrations, but for the most pari it is a day of rest.and. recreation. It also has become a symbol, of the end. of summer. In Australia Labor Day is called. " Eight Hour Dayand commemorates the seccessful stuggle for a shorter day. In Australia, the holiday varies from, state to state. Europe celebrates Labor Day on May 1. In 1.882 Peter J. McGuire, founder of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters in the US.A. suggested, a. national holiday to honor the country s working people. In September 1882 workers staged the first Labor Day parade in New York City. SNAKE VALLEY DROP IN CENTRE. The Snake Valley Drop In Centre has enjoyed travelling this summer. One was a mystery trip. We ended up in Lethbridge,saw Fort Whoop Up, art gallery, Japanese gardens. Had a delicious dinner at Sven Ericksen's gnd then off to the theatre for an enjoyable evening. This was enjoyed by all. The other was a trip to Calgary last week to see "Love Letters" at Stage West. It was good for many a laugh. What delicious food! So folks please join us in our activities. The more the merrier. We still play whist on Thursday and five hundred on Saturday at 7:30 both nights, even though we are getting smaller in numbers. We have either potluck or go to the restaurant for supper at 5:30 p.m. the first Sunday of the month, then we have a meeting and social evening. We'd be very happy to see more join us. It sure would be nice if we had a small bus like some of the other towns. Our hopes for the future? Any ideas? ***************************************************************** Audrey Thompson has a great grandson born to Cindy (Maldoner) and D'Arcy Quinn in Bangkok, Thailand on August 15, 1990.

On the second day of harvest the kids all laughed with glee, 'cause the chicken chores and cattle chores would now be up to me. On the third day of harvest my husband said to me, "Help tie the tarp down, run this half load into town, pick up some salt blocks and then check the cattle, cause WE'RE too bu-sy." On the fourth day of harvest they gave a broken part to me, said, "Try the Co-op at Beeler, every implement dealer, just keep driving till you find the right pul-ley." On the fifth day of harvest my husband said to me, "we're moving to the other field, you bring the pickup, fill up: the gas tanks and water jugs, put in the tool box, a can of bolts with nuts and lock, better bring our dinner and this time, don't forget the iced tea." On the sixth day of harvest my daughter called to me, "The elevator's tied up and X can't get unloaded. Take the old Chevy truck, make sure it's gassed up, check the oil and battery and get over the the west field in a hur-ry." On the seventh day of harvest my husband said to me, "We're going to bring some wheat in, will you clean out the north bin?" Then they set up the auger and left me scooping breathless-ly. On the eighth day of harvest my husband gave a list to me, "Don't know if this belt will last, better get to town fast, I need another reel, slat, filter and bearing. Bring it by the field, throw in an extra scoop and don't forget the goop that makes the chains run free." On the ninth day of harvest at eleven-thirty, the clutch went out on the combine and he called on the CB. Said: "Find the heavy log chain, get the Ford tractor and come pull me." On the tenth day of harvest my true love snapped at me, as I handed tools up to him. very nervous-ly. On the eleventh day of harvest the whole crew said to me, "Want to fill the gas tanks while we eat, take home this load of wheat and bring back: one wrench, lug, another water jug, and a beer each for the boys and me." On the last day of harvest my husband grinned at me, "If everything goes right, we should be done by midnight," and "Aren't you glad you didn't have to help, Hon-nee?" -Beverly WoodMILO FALL FAIR SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1990 SUPPER AT MILO HALL 5:30-7:OOp.m. yiilCo Oxtlgdl tSyiUm*.

Thaw* CiMAvvL - 373-*? 8SfOn the evening of August 10th some of our members gathered for a riae at the Telford Dixon home. By 5i30 p.m. we were on our way west towards the north end of the Buffalo Hills. Nine riders left the yard and we were joined by three more about 2 miles west. The trail nroved a test for some, our old cow came uo from the w-ter in the pasture and startled Debs horse. The railroad crossing caused a bit of worry and the wooden bridge across the irrigation canal was a.lso something new and there were birds living under it. Then we came to the irriga-r tion snrinklerswhich nad every one worried. The horses hardly noticed them. Even when vve had to oass cuite close. We rode west about six miles and right at the skyline turned around to go back. Did every one see the tnree deer watering us from the Canola field to the north? After a brief rest, curing which our cog sat down in front of Arvid's horse, causing a great commotion as he got steoped on but not badly hurt, vve continued on back to the yard with no further incident. It was about a two hour ride and we were all thirsty by the time we got back to find quite a few more members waiting for us in the yard. The shade felt good for a while but then the moscuitoes found us so every one moved over to the fire and fcy dark we were all gathered to roast weiners and marshmallows. As we sat oy the fire a curious boy from the colony stomed in to ask what we were doing. Guess he'd never seen a weiner roast before. There were about 30 n-cole who took the time to come out and the evening was pronounced a success. Thank you to our lunch committee and our sport committee for your time and effort and to all the members who took time out to come. BARREL RACING 396. Western type equipment must be used.

Two little boys, their mother and r hpvp vatchec s kildeer ms-kina' her nest on the gravel boulevard near my house. For six weeks or more she would fly uo when we came near and, dragging her wings as if broken, run away down the road. The nest was in a tiny nollew in the rocks, covered with a few' tall weeds. Four eggs the size of pecans in a creamy tone with brown flecks, sat ex-oosed to the elements. The bird did not seem to worry about tne sun or the heavy rains, tho’ I did l I could only see the black and white rings on her neck' when she was on the nest, she so oerfectly blended in with the gravel surroundings. I could not believe the eggs would natch with so little care. Then one day I noticed the boys following her along the street, rour tiny Kildeer chicks were running every where. Miracle of miracles the eggs had hatched I We watched and listened as she called them to ner and tney all disappeared into the tall grass at tne end of the street. Our summer seemed so much nicer having seen a bit of true nature.

Present were Mayor Phillips, Councillors Umscheid and Middlestead, Municipal Administrator Lynda Cyr and Town Manager Brent Kjinserdahl. The minutes of the meeting held on July 11, 1990 were read. Mayor Phillips moved the adoption of these minutes. Council requested Lynda Cyr to check with the post office to see how much it would cost to send the water samples by Priority Post as compared to Loomis. A letter is to be sent to Reed Stenhouse Insurance to see if the costs of the repairs to the water pump are covered with our insurance. The power pole at the pump house was struck by lightning which burned the motor out of the pump. The booklet from Loss Control Consultants with the new insurance appraisals was discussed. Copies are to be sent respectively to the Snake yalley Drop In, the Curling Club, the Library and the Fire Association. This will be reviewed at the September meeting and any changes sent back. Council discussed the fact that the property formerly owned by the Violet Peterson Estate, is now being used as commercial property. It is Southern Creations. Councillor Umscheid made a motion that this property be billed as commercial property for taxes and water and sewer. A letter is to be sent to the owners, Mr. and Mrs. Gross. CARRIED. Mayor Phillips informed Council that Vaile Construction will begin work on the sidewalks next week. Lynda Cyr is to check the prices on a photo-copier and report back to Council. Councillor Middlestead stated that the parts for the tractor should be here any day. They had to send to Texas for them. A letter is to be sent to Mrs. Findlay in Vulcan asking if she would like her yard cleaned again this year. Council said they will get Lyle to do it before he finishes for the summer. Councillor Middlestead offerred to go to the Waste Management Authority meeting to be held in Vulcan this Thursday, August 23. He will report to Council at the September meeting as to the outcome. Mayor Phillips mentioned the Village will be celebrating their 60th anniversary next year and Council discussed what contribution they should make. This was tabled until September's meeting. Two applications for development permits were approved in July. They were for Mr. William Brockway and Mr. Greg Dixon. Mayor Phillips declared an interest in the following account of $ 487.91 with L.H. Phillips and Sons Ltd. and refrained from voting and discussion thereon. Councillor Middlestead moved the bills for ^3,534.87 be paid. CARRIED. The meeting adjourned at 9:15 p.m.t ROLY MOL'D TOUR On May 25th, Ethai and Hap Hoathor, Lsuvy and Jean Umscheid boarded a plane and left for a twenty-five day trip to the Holy Land and Europe. Reverend Allan Dunbar from Cambrian Heights Church of Christ-Calgary was our tour guide, and since this was his fifteenth visit to the Holy Land, we knew we were in good hands. There were 41 of us in the tour. We arrived in Ammon, Jordon the next day weary but excited to see all we could see. We were in Ammon three days. We toured Jerash and saw the Roman ruins. The following day we visited Petra "The Rose Red City" hidden away amid craggy rock mountains. This ‘Lost City" can only be reached by walking or horseback(4 mile round trip). Since it was about 115 F above, the decision was to ride, but on mounting the horse we weren’t sure it was the best idea, even though we had someone leading the horse. However it was well worth it to see the hidden city. The oldest and best preserved ruins ever found. The next day we left for Israel, we drove through the Jordon valley, which was so green and beautiful compared to the desert all around us. The only trouble we had crossing the border at Israel, was a 90 year old lady in the group had a wheel chair^uid noone knew we were suppose to have a permit for it, as the customs thought something could have been put in the tires. So Allan stayed behind and caught up to us In about one hour. Our tour guide for Israel had met us at the border, where a bus was waiting. They could not let a Jordon bus go through and the same for Israel buses. We joumed onto Jericho to visit the "Oldest City" in the world, and to see the excavations. Then on to Tumran to see the Lead Sea Scrolls". From there to Bethany, home of Martha, Mary and Lazarus, also to see Lazarus’ tomb. We then continued to Jerusaleum where we stayed four nights. The foliowi«g morning wo left for a tour of the city, going to the 'Place of Ascension" where the Lords Prayer is written in every language. We drove down the Kidron valley to see the Pool of Siloam, continueing on to Bethlehem to see the Church of the Nativity and cave stable where Jesus was born. After lunch we went to Agony Church, seen the Shepherds fields and the Church of the Holy Sepuechre, where Jesus was condemmed. We walked down the steps of Zeon where Peter denied Jesus three times. We saw the dungeon where Jesus was scourged and beaten and thrown into for the night before his crucifiction. Sunday morning we had our church service outside at the Mount of Olives, by the garden of Gethsemene, looking on Jerusaleum. This was a very touching time for all of us. From here we heralded to Masada, taking a cable car to the top and were guided around the excavations. After having a good look at this we went swimming in the "Dead Sea". There is six times as much salt in this sea as there is in the ocean. Needless to say, we could swim, but you have to be very careful not to get the water in your eyes. In the evening an Arab minister, his wife and two children came to our hotel and picked up the boxes of clothes we had taken for them. As in Israel the Arabs aren’t treaten too well. The next morning we entered Old Jerusaleum through the Dung Gate where we visited the ‘Wailing Wall". People came to pray there from all over the world. From there we visited the Shrine of the Book, and saw the Museum and Dead Sea Scrolls. Then on to the Holocust Museum, which was very sad That evening we went to an Israel Folklore but it seemed like we should have stayed home as we took turnd sleeping. The following morning we went to the Garden Tomb where its almost certain Jesus was buried On to Nfount Carmel and Haifi. Here we visited a diamond factory and thenon to Tiberius, on the shores of Galilee to spend a couple of nights. In the morning we were on the boat at 8am to cross the Sea of Galilee. We went to Gapemutn and saw the ruins, then on to Goland Heights. We saw the Syrian border, the United Nations Peace keeping force and lots of army bases, also the road to Damascus. In the afternoon anyone wishing to was re-baptised in the Jordon River, which was another highlight of our trip. From here we headed on to Netanya, going to Cana in Galilee, then on to a Roman Ampitheatre, where they still have concerts. We left this lovely spot and headed back to Jordon going through Tel-Aviv and crossing the Allenby Bridge which divides Israel and Jordon. From there we went to Mt Newbo a breath taking view of the Dead Sea and on a clear day you can see the Holy City of Jerusaleum. This is where Moses dhowed his people the land of milk and honey and also the monument with the cross and the snake was up there. We went to a church, the Mosiac tile on floor depicted 500 AD, of all things that were to come. This was realy beautiful We were up early in the morning to fly to Vienna arriving in the afternoon at Salzburg, Astra. In the morning we walked through Mary be lie Park, it was beautiful with all kinds of flowers and shrubs. Then we went through the house that mozart and Wolfgang lived, and saw their museum. This is a very beautiful city. Before leaving we saw the place where Sound of Music was filmed. We headed to Germany, stopping at Berchtesgarden-the site of Hitlers hide away, and then arriving in Oberammergau. Eleven of us from our tour group were billeted in a German home. This was very interesting. We were only three minutes away from the Passion Play, so we were able to look at the shops as we walked there. The play kept you spell bound, it was fantastic and helped to complete our tour of the Holy Land. In the morning we drove to Neuschwanstem and stopped at King Ludwigs fairy tale castle, Then on over the scenic Arlberg Pass to Innsbruck. Here we went through the quaint medieval streets and saw the Emperor Maximilians "Golden Roof". Then via Brenner Pass, over the Alps to Bolonzo, Italy. It was a rather interesting day, breakfast in Germany, lunch in Austria and our evening meal in Italy. The next day we travelled to Verona, the City of Romeo and Juliet, seeing the Romans Arena and Juliets balcony. On to Garde Laid, which is a beautiful resort, and then on to Venice. In the evening we all went for gondola rides. Our middle boat had a singer with an accordian, so everyone could hear. Going along the canals, people would look out of their windows and throw a flower or just wave. Venice is very interesting, made up of 108 islands with two miles of mainland. The following morning we caught a ferry and went to StMarks Square. Then we took a tour that showed Byzantine Basilica with one thousand year old gem studded gold alter piece in Doges Palace, a fantacy in pink and white marble. We were then taken by boat to Murano where we saw the glass blowers. The next morning we were off to Y ugoslavia to the ancient center of Ljublyana. Its enormous castle catherdral and town hall reflects the history of this city, which was once a part of Austria. After as good nights sleep we said good bye to Ljublyana and went by Kranz, travelling through beautiful mountains to the Austrian border and to Klagenfurt near lovely Lake Worth, stopping at Badan to see the Statues of Strauss as this was his home town. We continued through the popular resort Carinthia, and across the scenic Simmering Pass and into Vienna Our hotel was on the River Danube. We went on a guided tour seeing the terraced gardens of Prince Eugene’s Belvedere Palace, then on to his winter palace, passed the Prater Amusement park, and then for a lovely boat ride on the Danube. The next day we toured on our own downtown. In the evening we attended the Volksoper Operetta- "The Merry Widow". The next day we left by Vienna airlines at 6:30 pm and arriving in Amsterdam at 8(15pm. We were then taken by bus to Haarlam. The following morning we toured on our own, this was another highlight for us as this was where Corrie Ten Booms home was with the clock making shop below. We were shown through this place and it amazed us , the small cupboards, they could hide four people in(The Hiding Place). We left Amsterdam that night at 6:30p.m. and arrived in New York staying all night. The following morning we flew back to Calgary, knowing we would never forget this “fantastic trip".

CANADA MALT WANTS BARLEY.lahd reunion Seeley Lake Montana We started out at 6a.m. and were at the border t 8 a.m. There were'very few crossing State side at Carway, but lots coming to Canada. The border official was friendly and only chatted for a minute. Then we were off to Montana. The roads were winding and we’d never been that way, so we didn't know what to ex­pect. Nice foothills country we travelled through 'till St Mary where we en­tered. Glacier Park. Had to cash one of our traveller's cheques as we had no cash on us. The road was good pavement but narrow and winding. No wonder they eco vnended 35 mrv: Lovely Lake St. Mary was to our left for 10 or more miles s vc. toured do; ;o one Sun Road. The switchbacks and gradual ascents did not really prepare for the spectacular view and awesome chasm at the top of' ogan Pass. Most fantastic The road built in the 1930's hugged the cliffs for a good 15 miles and wound down through three tunnels, passed a wall of water called the Weeping Wall. Several places the road had holes along the rock face to let wild water falls continue down the side of the mountain for thous­ands of feet. The road wound down and down and I felt sorry for the mountain bike riders toiling up from the east side. They truly earned their reward in the view at the top. After a really sharp switchback we gradually came into more spruce and pine, and travelling along Lake McDonald we began to meet more and more campers and vehicles of all kinds. Lots of camp grounds and tourist stops along here. At noon we finally came to West Glacier and stopped at the little store and res­taurant to look at souvenirs etc. We didn't stop for lunch as the place was packed. The road south was a mixture of farm land and irrigation along Flat- head Lake. Had us wondering what the strange looking crop was that the farmers were cutting for forage. Looked almost like nettles. Never did find anyone who could tell us about it. Then we it more spruce and pine forest and finally could see Swan Lake through the trees. We stopped to admire the beautiful turquoise water at a turn out spot. It looked cold and deep. Another hour brought us to Seeley Lake and we began to search for our motel. Seeley Lake is a typical mountain resort town along both sides of the highway, in a narrow valley. The lake is not big, but quite popular for swimmers, boaters and water skiiers. Tamarack Lodge is right on the lake shore. The reunion BBQ was to be there. OUr motel, the Double Arrow was farther south and east along the valley edge. A newer place that had been a ranch I think. Any­way we finally found it and unpacked our stuff into one of the bedrooms. (It had a king-size bed). This cabin (lodge) had four bedrooms, a kitchen, two bathrooms and a large 45 foot living room, all log inside and out. The chinking inside between logs was covered with rope. It turned out the Double Arrow harbored all the Milo, Calgary, Vulcan and High River Lahds and also some from Minnesota, whom we didn't recognize until after the afternoon get together. Towards evening the rest of our group arrived and got settled and then we all got in the van and went down to the Tamarack Lodge for the barbeque. There we met faces and names from the last reunion, plus several new faces and names. The ladies from U. S. A. had a wonderful meal going in no time and we had a great time getting reacquainted and visiting. Saturday a whole afternoon was spent taking pictures with much visiting and. comparing of notes on ancestors, relatives, etc. We met Christian Lahd's family members and also Joseph Lahd's family members, Marie (Lahd) Brewer's family - all new faces. Altogether there were over 80 people in attendance. We also met for the first time Daniel Boehlke - Bernice's son who is our cousin. J{a had always stayed at home when Bernice visited here. The h rseshoe tournament trophy was won by Bill Lahd and a friend of one of the Christian Lahd granddaughters. Another younger family of John Lahd's was, I think, from the Christian Lahd family. - submitted by Levona DixonBtfdqess.899-3898 Hotite.599-3892 IlIHgglllllifllllillBBiiijiilMIIHiijSiiij © is m m m m rl 5* m o m n m m IS H- SB IS H" © mi fflk S3 H" © N4 *ls; o a as frari"- © fSk as a H O Oft a o » © 3 © 3! as H P* as H m © ■$ 8*4 |p9p-, jili «: «-■ s o *© NL§ © 3 iniii = - fffiSfSS illlDPS om I 'ZZ<# # /i !&/ 4 :;'-2:is|; ■'0 ayv4!r=:i. s .,-:rf* -i j«rtr.a:3t?3i m*4: .it 3j,Saws^ lai-fiSKi |HH2i5!?sPt £- .

According to the Canadian Garden Council pruning up should be avoided at all cost A problem that can develope in older spruce trees is a canker disease called cytospora. It occurs on older branches in the interior of the tree. Most easily noticed is a sap exudent that has a white cottony appearance. The only solution is removal of the affec­ted branches using a sterile solution after each cut. If you insure the lower branches are left intact and also that dead needles under the trees are*left for a mulch material to help conserve moisture and an acid balance in the soil surrounding the trees you will go a long way to­wards keeping your spruce healthy and happy.
