Thurt. to Closed Saturdays No rules to preclude patronage accusations By GREG MclNTYRE Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON There are BO regulations to prevent loans from the Alberta Op- portunity Company (AOC) go- ing to sources that could be interpreted as political pa- tronage, s a y s the managing director of the recently-cre- ated Industrial Incentives Agency. The only regulations cover- ing conflict of interest, deal v.iih preventing loans to em- ployees of the AOC, Edward Clarke said in an interview. Ths opposition has charged that until the government re- veals the names of loan re- cipients, insinuations of fa- voritism in loans from the million fund will continue to circulate. Industry Minister Fred Peacock says confidentiality has been guaranteed loan re- cipients under regulations es- tablished when the AOC was set up in the summer of 1972. Mr. Clarke said the only regulation addressed to the political patronage issue pro- hibits loans to company per- sonnel. It reads "The company shall not niake a loan or guarantee a loan to a direc- tor, officer or employee of the company, directly or indirect- ly, or to any person acting in his behall or to any firm, cor- poration or organization in w h i c h he has any beneficial interest." However, there are no rules covering who may receive a loan. "I don't think that is some- thing you can said Mr. Clarke, who joined the AOC in March after seven years with the Ontario De- velopment Corporation. "The board has to consider each case on its merits." However, in general terms, Mr. Clarke said loan applica- tions with a "hint of anything improper" are screened be- f- t being considered by the AOC board of directors. To date, he said there have been no applicants rejected because of "irregularities." Approval of a loan is a two- staged process, he said. First, the applicant must present plans for an econ- cmically sound business ven- ture. Authorization of a loan is then granted by a letter setting out the terms and con- ditions of the loan. When the conditions have met, the AOC appraises the project and the money is dispersed, he said. The Alberta Opportunity Company was formed in July, 1972 taking over some of the functions of the for- mer Alberta Commercial Corporation. It was aimed to assist Al- berta-based industry, particu- larly small companies in ru- ral Alberta. Ear tags for cattle mark herd improvement PUNT NOW! GLAD BULBS TOP NAME VARIETIES J.50 MARQUIS FLOWER SHOP Phone 327-1515 By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer BROOKS A ear tag attached to cattle destined for slaughter to provide valuable carcass quality data is now being used by major breed associations to assist with herd improvement programs. A pen of 480 steers, bought for fattening by Lakeside Feeders Ltd. here, were tag- ged Tuesday with the special ear markers before slaughter Friday. Bob Day, performance di- rector for the participating Canadian Charolais Associa- tion, said the tags will accom- pany all the steers on the as- sociation's Conception' to Con- sumer program. When the animals are slaughtered, all the carcass data will be sent to Mr. Day for programming on the C to C information cards. This will allow all producers on the program to evaluate the many breeding combination selec- tions and to determine which females are best suited to which males, all to produce the best offspring for beef production. The special tag program was initiated last April when Dr. Gordon Burton of Clares- holm received carcass data from animals he had tagged. The program, open to all cattle producers, is designed to identify carcasses and ap- praise the carcass according to a list of criteria. This in- formation is then returned to the producer to allow him to evaluate his breeding ani- mals. This beef carcass appraisal service, sponsored by the Canada Department of Agri- culture, will help cattlemen to more effectively evaluate breeding, feeding and man- agement programs. This could result in econo- mically significant improve- ments in the production of beef high in both quality and yield, according to George Chessor, livestock inspector for the department in Leth- bridge. Since the start, more than tags have been purchas- ed in Alberta. This is about half of the total purchased in Canada. Animals can be tagged at any time but the data isn't re- turned to the person who pur- chased the tag until slaughter. Lost tags mean no data can be returned. When the animal is slaugh- tered, the ear tag is attached to the carcass inside a plas- tic bag.

Youth ghetto turned into recreation haven By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer From youth ghetto to rec- reation haven is the dream- ed success story for Moses Lake, a town north of Card- ston. A Moses Lake Action Com- mittee was formed earlier this year to deal directly with the problem of juvenile delinquency which was in- creasing at an alarming rate in Moses Lake. The committee consists of a court worker, registered nurse, recreation director, child welfare workers, social service counsellor and a RCMP constable, all from the Cardston, Standoff, and Leth- bridge area. Sincere total involvement of the youth of the town with (he committee has resulted in a reversal of the incidence of juvenile delinquency. The originator of the action committee and the primary mover in motivating the youth of Moses Lake, Const. Dave Collis of the RCMP Cardston detachment, says he was shocked at the youths' attitude; toward the law when he first began patrolling the area. RAN TO HIDE The minute they saw the marked RCMP car they be- gan running in all directions TO find the nearest place to hide. Today Const. Collis is the centre of attraction on each visit to Moses Lake as the youth there gather around him to strike up a conversa- tion.

Farm land had been ex- tremely dry with pasture land suffering most. Bob Lyons, agricul- turist fci tiie district, said the most recent storm is "good for the land and bad for the calves." He didn't expect any calf losses due directly to the heavy snowfall but Indicated the lack of a dry resting area was causing scours or diar- rhea in the young animals which is causing some con- cern. lie said the calving was about 85 per cent complete. With the snow on the ground, mother cows could suffer from sunburnt udders, he said. This problem, shouldn't be too severe be- cause the snow had started to melt early this morning. Mr. Lyons said a smaller storm in the region Monday had improved the pasture land appreciably but with this new precipitation, all farm land is in good shape for 1973 crops. The storm was located pri- marily in the foothill and mountain regions. Lethbridge had only a trace of rain early this morning. The Lethbridge weather of- fice reported generally cloudy conditions will persist in Southern Alberta with a chance of rain showers or STOW flurries. The temperature will reach a high cf 50 today and Thurs- day with overnight lows in the 30s. patrolling the area there was an astonishing amount of glue sniffing taking place and a high incidence of break-ins, assault, theft and wilful dam- age. It didn't take long to rec- ognize the problem, says: Const. Collis. "The kids didn'i have anything to do and they had a lot of energy to burr- so they burned it in the best way they knew how. To cope with the problem, he offered himself to the kids as a recreation director in his leisure hours. Const. Collis says the first few weeks of his involvement with the youth as an organ- izer of recreation activities were very discouraging be- cause many of them didn't show or they would arrive late. SNIFFING SOLVENT Often he had to search them out only to find thsm sniffing solvent, but after a few weeks of picking them up and driving them to the meet- ings, they began to go on their own. The action committee be- gan toying last month with the idea of establishing a youth recreation centre in Moses Lake that would offer the kids a positive alternative to juvenile delinquency. Today, the centre is in the planning stage and is ed to be in operation within a month. The committee drew up a proposal for a building to be used as a Recreation Centre and presented it to the Blood Indian Band Council for ap- proval. Moses Lake falls un- der the Blood Band's jurisdic- tion. The band approved of the proposal and referred it to the department of Indian af- fairs, Lethbridge branch for funding. PROJECTS PLANNED "They put in one hell of a good says Pete Swartraan, district supervis- or for the department. "It was easy for us to sup- port immediately because the Blood Band did all the back- ground work which showed a definite need for such a cen- he said. The proposal has been for- warded to the department of Indian Affairs regional office in Edmonton for final approv- al. Mr. Swartman says he doesn't see any problems with it being approved bj the regional office. It is the plan of the action committee to encourage the youth of Moses Lake to or- ganize fund raising projects so as to pay for every recreation facility in the centre. ADULT PARTICIPATION The youths have already begun to operate fund raising projects such as bottle drives and have raissd just under a ?iVK) from two projects. They hope to run bingos on a regular basis and have put in a bid to operate the Blood Band's annual garbage clean- up in Moses Lake and area. The Band has paid for the clean-up job in past years and the youth hope to earn the same if their bid is ap- proved. BERGMAN'S FLOOR COVERINGS Custom Installations PH. 3284372 2716 12 Ave. S.

Coil's says he is pleased that youth involve- ment -with the recreation cen- tre is "really beginning to snowball." but he would like to see more adults in Moses Lake become involved in or- ganizing and supervising rec- reation and fund raising ac- tivities for youth. He said adult involvement is necessary because he can't continue to devote as many of his leisure hours to the pro- ject in the future. Mr. Frank says the Blood Band has written to RCMP Headquarters in Edmonton in an attempt to have Const. Collis located in Moses Lake or to have him granted a month's leave of absence to work at the centre. The centre will not only house pool and ping pong tables and other recreation facilities, but it will be head- quarters for organizing youth projects and activities. The youth of Moses Lake have accepted the challenge they face in establishing an active recreation centre. It now remains to be seen if the adults will follow suit. :ilFF BUCK, Certified Dental Mechanic HACK DENTAL MHKCAI DENTAL BLOC. lower levc' PHONE 327-2M2 Mental health is topic Snake pits are for snakes. That's the topic for discus- sion and debate at Thursday's meeting of the Southern Al- berta Council on Public Af- fairs. It will be introduced by W. G. Coombs, executive director of the Canadian Mental Health Association. Mr. Coombs, who has spent 21 years in the mental health field 10 years with Alberta Hospital, Pcnoka and 11 years with the CMHA expound on his views of care for the mentally ill. The topic suggests that stashing the mentally ill away in asylums now is fre- quently unnecessary, often immoral and even criminal at times. The meeting starts at 12 noon at Sven Ericksen's Fam- ily Restaurant.
