Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta FLASH SMALLPOX VACCINATION now required for visitors to Britain olio visitors to Europe in transit through London Airport. This bulletin courtesy of ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 328-3201 The LetKbridge Herald SECOND SECTION Lethbridge. Alberta. Thursday, April 19, J97.'j PAGES 13 TO 24 Veterans give tikes hike tips By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer Walkers in the Good Friday Hike for Tikes should be in good physical condition, wear soft-soled shoes, and re- frain from drinking too much water, suggested two veteran hikers of the annual trek to- day. The Hike for Tikes is a fund-raising walk in which participants have been pledg- ed a specific amount of money per mile walked. The sponsor- ing Optimist Club of Leth- bridge allots funds raised to Qocal youth projects based on the youth groups needs. The first time he made the walk it was strictly on a ex- perimental basis, says John Barclay, 85, of No. 1 Fireball, recipient of four trophies for being the eldest person to complete the 28-mile hike in previous years. "Now I do it because I enjoy visiting with other peo- ple on the route." he said. "I take more time to walk it now than I did the first time so I am not so tired at the end." Mr. Barclay didn't make the walk last year because of cold weather and snow that struck on the day of the walk. In 1971 he completed the walk in 10 hours which included a lengthy rest period at every check point. "My leg muscles were sore for a day or two but other than that I had no after- he said. He is an avid walker and does all his grocery shopping and business ventures on foot. "I have never asked for E. S. P. FOX Certified Dental Mechanic FOX (Leth.)

Mr. Barclay will be in the Hike for Tikes on Friday pac- ing along at more than a a mile. Barbara Ann Costanzo, 9, 300 ?4th St. S., only made it to the first check point last year but in 1973 it's all the way or bust, she says. A vet- eran of three walks, she was the winner of the trophy for the youngest person to finish the walk in 1971. "I always take along hard candies in case I get she says. "Walkers should not drink too much or they will get sick and sneakers are the best things for kids to wear on their she added. Mrs. Bob Costanzo says it was difficult to watch her daughter walk the last few miles because Barbara was completely tired out and st'll refused to quit before she completed the walk. "We asked her to quit but she cried and said she want- ed to finish the walk." "The next morning she was up at nine to attend ballet lessons and she was as spry as so I guess the walk didn't play her out as much as it appeared says Mrs. Costanzo. There should be about walkers this year to help bring in a goal, says Leo Grudniski, Hike for Tikes chairman and member of he Optimist Club of Lsthbrictee. The route in 1973 will be the same as last year, with registration taking place at the Civic Centre at 7 a.m. and the final checkpoint (being the Elks's Lodge in Picture Butte. As a neighborly side-light to this year's walk, the senior citizens of Picture Butte have invited other senior citizens of Southern Alberta to join them on the trek.

SHOES Proud mother Chianina cow and calves at Lethbridge Research Station Twin Chianina calves born The first purebred Chian- ina calves in North America were born Sunday morning at the Lethbridge Research Sta- tion. The mother and father of the twin calves were part of the first shipment of Italian cattle brought to North America September, 1972. The Lethbridge Research Station received four bulls and six heifers, the only females in the shipment. The bull calf weighed 85 pounds at birth with the heif- er calf weighing 71 pounds. During a normal birth, a bull calf would weigh about 100 pounds and a heifer calf about 90 pounds. This com- pares to a normal birth in the domestic breeds such as Hereford animals of 70 pounds for bull calves and 65 pounds for females. Claimed to be the largest breed of cattle in the world, the Chianina animals are being tested at the research station to try to improve the beef production in Can- ada. The female calf will be in- troduced to the purebred Chianina herd being develop- ed at the station in Leth- bridge. The bull calf will be tested for evaluation, includ- ing weight increases. Syd Slen, head of the ani- mal science branch at the research station, said two more Chianina females are expected to have calves soon. He said there have been hundreds of one half blood' crossed Chianina calves bom in Southern Alberta this MFC approves factory The Municipal Planning Commission approved the es- tablishment of a soft drink outlet, auto body shop find sash door factory at its regu- lar meeting Wednesday.

The calves haven't caused any birth problems and they have shown a rapid rate of growth in their early life stage, he said. He said the success of the crosses confirms the opinion that the Chianina bulls will be useful terminal sires in a three-way crossbreeding pro- gram. Because of the large size of the Chianina bulls, they are not being widely bred to the smaller domestic breeds such as Herefords, Shorthorns and Aberdeen Angus to pre- vent calving problems. Many ranchers are breed- ing these domestic females to larger bulls such as Char- olais and Limousin to get a larger breeding female. This larger female is then being bred to the Chianina bulls.

However, Mr. Getty told the legislature Alberta is discuss- ing with Ottawa the exchange of land somewhere for the northern national park which is rich in resources. He would not tell Dan Bou- vier (Ind. Lac La Bichfir. McMurray) which provincial land is being negotiated. Harry Strom (SC-Cypress) asked if it was Cypress Hills. Agricultural fund not empty Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON new million Agricultural Develop- ment Fund is not running out of money despite numer- ous refusals of money, the legislature was told Wednes- day. Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer, replying to Ed Benoit (SC-Highwood) said many of the applications for money should be going to the Fed- eral Farm Credit Corpora- tion and other lending insti- tutions, rather than to the provincial fund. Board. Roy Farran, minister of telephones and utilities, told the legislature Wednes- day. However, Mr. Farran said the government may impose some control on the price of propane "but not necessarily through the PUB." NDP leader Grant Notley asked if consideration is be- ing given to a co-op refinery to that in to create :nore competition la the gasoline industry. Industry Minister Fred Peacock said no, but that he will have a report on gaso- line pricing this summer. Brand name service station operators have charged they are being discriminated against by the oil companies providing gasoline at lower prices to non brand name cutlets. Mr. Notley also mentioned the five-year-old report com- missioned by the provincial government McKenzie re- port which charges "no price competition in the mar- keting of gasoline." Premier Lougheed said the issue of co-operatives is among "factors in our consid- eration relative to public par- ticipation in the resource field." The premier objected to gasoline price control, say- ing that price limits at the pump force down the econ- omy all the way back to the well-head, affecting employ- ment and provincia' revenue.
