Canadians exchange $s Border crossings by 14,617 Canadians for Canadian Days in Kalispell last weekend resulted in a net deposit of about $350,000 in Canadian currency in area banks. At the Roosville border station between Friday morning and Monday evening, officials said 2,605 vehicles entered the U.S. carrying 8,16* passengers. This is an increase of 13 per cent over 1975. Officials also said the bulk of the influx returned on Monday causing a two-mile lineup of about 1,717 cars. From Friday morning to Sunday evening, officials at the Piegan entry point said 1,117 vehicles bearing 5,499 persons entered the U.S. And during the same period, entries at Chief Mountain numbered 775 persons. The bulk of the Canadian income was reported by the Conrad National Bank where $167,000 in Canadian currency was deposited for exchange. At First Northwestern Bank of Kalispell, another $112,500 was exchanged. Valley Bank and First Security each recorded $10,000 in Canadian currency. And First Federal handled $167. Canadians turned out in largest numbers for the Chamber of Commerce sponsored cocktail hour at the Eagles Hall last Saturday night. Figures showed 1,500 people attending the cocktail hour, another 700 attending the Sunday morning breakfast at the Gateway West Mall and 600 visiting the Depot Park picnic Sunday afternoon. Rural eighth graders head for high school Approximately 68 students from eight rural schools paraded to the podium Wednesday night to receive diplomas graduating them from eighth grade into area high schools. Renditions of "Hey, Look Me Over'' by the West Valley Sextet, "Help Me Make It Through The Night" by Mike Louden and Joe Lunceford and "Seasons in the Sun" by the Demersville Quartet preceded class presentations by school board chairpersons. Presenting diplomas were Kenneth H. Krueger of West Valley, Raymond J. Weinberg of Fair-Mont- Egan, Mrs. Linda L. Robbin of Creston, David S. Bai- lenger of Demersville, Paul R. Palmer of Kila, Emery E. Wittlake of Batavia, Dennis F. O'Connell of Hodgson and Howard R. Glazier of Boorman. Students receiving diplomas are listed by school as follows: WEST VALLEY - Merryn R. Allick, Tamara Lynn voice of flathead high by dan downey As you know, Monday night is the time for graduation. The time is met with many emotions, some sad, some glad and some bewilderment. ! guess I would like to talk about one bewilderment first. After 12 years of education life is going to be something completely new. A time of freedom is starting. A graduating senior probably has more freedom than anyone at any other stage of life. He's young, healthy and has very few binding lines attached to him. Depending on what type of individual he is, he will set off for a future with many hopes and ambitions. Some of the class of '76 will head for college next fall for more formal education. Others will join the service, eager to see new ports in strange parts of the world. Still others will remain in the Flathead Valley to live in one of the most beautiful places in the nation. The big day will be met with joy by many who are tired of classrooms and clocks. Some of these may be out celebrating after the exercises so it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to look out for them. Just starting the balmy summer season is a reason to be glad, but for some reason I seem to be a little glum. ] think maybe I might miss the old dungeon and all the prison guards we call teachers. Most of all I'm going to miss the people I've known. Some of them I'll never see again. Some of them I'll probably read about some day. Well, I better not get too sentimental here. I wouldn't want you to get your newspaper wet so 1 guess I'll sign off. By the way, this is the last column I will be writing. I don't claim any journalisitc talent but! hope you have enjoyed it.
