Namesake visitors. The Ranton family from Black Diamond, Washington, stopped into Black Diamond, Alberta recently and received a warm welcome from municipal administrator, Dianne Kreh. The family, returning to the States from holiday, noticed the sign for Black Diamond near Calgary and decided to investigate. Left to right are: Angel, Lee, Janice, Niki, and Brent Ranton, along with Dianne Kreh.

That all men who ride coal trips are not coal miners is proven by this picture. The Bulletin photographer caught this trip just before it started for the twelfth level of Black Diamond Mine, where more than 1,500 feet below sea level, an attempt was made by radio experts to log some of the programs with which the air above the surface is charged. But the mine was too deep for the radio waves.
