Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta April S, 1971 Vri6 LtTHBRIDGS HERAID 1] Study based termiiinl inland grain elevators not shipp ng answer CALGARY (CP) Use of in- land (irain terminals does not appear to be a praclical solu- tion to shipping problems fac- ini! Western Canadian farmers, says the Alberta Wheat Pool. The pool's cor.clubion is based en a study of (lie Lclhbridge terminal but "it is assumed findings would apply to those ot Edmonton and Calgary as well." Such terminals would clean fii'ain and prepare It for direct loading onto ships rather than putting it through coastal ter- minals. EXTRA COST The study calculated that on a volume of 200 cars of 1 c. w. wheat a week out of Ixilhlirldgo the additional cost per bushel would he between 14.5 and 13.81 cents. The pool said the extra cost can "be justified financially from Ihe producers standpoint only if it avoids heavy ship dc- muri-avje penalty." Grain could be shipped di- rectly to inland terminals from farms, Ihe report said, but "It is nol practical to depend on such a system during the tirna ol spring road bans or during tlie seeding season." To ensure delivery under such a system, a fleet of char- tered or purchased trucks would be needed at a cost of about a week. Groin could also be brought from country elevators by rail but a stop-over charge of Jump 170 feel into gorge visit OH Schedule despite labor troubles PROCLAMATION WHEREAS, Cancer can strike anyone a> any age can affec, children as well as adulls, but il strikes wilh increasing frequency with advancing age. The fight against cancer in Canada Is spearheaded by two Nalfonal voluntary organizations ihe CAN- ADIAN CANCER SOCIETY and the NATIONAL CAN- CER INSTITUTE OF CANADA. These two organizations work closely ihe Federal and Provincial Depart- ments of Health, wilh llie treatment agencies and with Ihe Canadian Medical Association. And where- as Ihe Canadian Cancer Society is the only National Volunlary Health Agency fighting Cancer through Research, Education and Palienl Services, I, Andrew Anderson, Mayor of Lethbridge, do hereby draw lo Ihe attention of all ciliieni lhat SUNDAY, April 16th Shall be declared CANCER SUNDAY AND FURTHER, I do hereby declare that the Month of April shall be CANCER CONTROL MONTH, and do earncslly requesl thai the Residential Blitz on Cancer Sunday, April 16lh and during the month of April receive the earnest end full support of the citizens of Lelhbridge and District. BELIEVE IT. CANCER CAN BE BEATEN. ANDREW ANDERSON, Mayor cenls a buslicl could ho applied.

CUT SKHVICE But it was possible railway! would cut service to country elevators if the terminal system was employed because there would be insufficient rolling stock Lo handle both. Farmers would also have to pay additional elevation charges because ot the cxtrn terminal, the report said, and they would lose money on screening from cleaned grain because ot difference in value between the prairies and thi west coast.

Seek to adopt 7 sisters TORONTO (CP) More than 150 persons have applied to adopt seven sisters whose need for parents was revealed March 14. L'V quotas changed WINNIPEG (CP) Changes In the delivery quota for select- ed barley and the D quota for wheat, effective April 3, were announced lodny by the Cana- dian wheat board. The wheat board has author- ized the delivery of a second carlot of any variety of six-row barley in order to meet the ad- ditional requirements of pro- cessors in Alberta. Only those producers who liavo assigned sufficient quota acres to select- ed barley will be able to take advantage of this quota change. The D quota for wheat, au thorizing producer deliveries of two bushels a quota acre of No. c.s. red spring wheat only, went inio effect in one shipping block, Saskatoon main. Helen Allen, whose Today's Child column is distributed to newspapers tlirongli the On- tario government, said In an interview today the response has been fantastic and letters still are pouring in. Those applying include a family in Western Canada that already has six daughters and an Eastern Canadian family with 12 children. Miss Allen said a family Irom the United Slates also applied. They have 10 children under Ihe age of 10, but the family is financially sound and quite capable of looking after seven more, she said. The girls, Diane, 13, Lu- cienne, 12, Suzanne, 11, Ni- cole, 10, Anita, 8, Mordque, 7, and Pauline, 6, have been parents for some time, and wish to remain to- gether.
