Leonard Herring, manag_er of General News, said Tbiirsday that although in his opinion, the public wants Penthouse magazine, Gener- al News will be working with the advisory board to decide whether each monthly issue should be placed on the news- stands. The four-man board, which has no legal authority, added the magazine to its list of 230 other "objectionable publica- tions" at a meeting last month. "If they advise us to take an issue off the stands may- be we Mr. Herring said. Mr. Herring said he con- siders the board to be a form of censorship and add- ed that the corporate offices of the magazine are watch- ing the situation. In Edmonton, Provincial News was charged on the February issue with distri- buting obscene material and was summonsed to appear in court March 27. but the case has not come to trial. The sales manager for the Edmonton distributor, S. A.

Local farmers, who have been asked to back 30 per cent of the plant through a co- operative, won't support the plan because it is not central- ly located, Mr. Notley said in an interview. "There is very wide-spread opposition to Sexsmith be- cause it is not a central loca- tion for a plant." In another development, Bob Clark (SC--01ds Dids- bury) revealed in the legisla- ture that meal from the plant will not be available to local fanners, according to an offi- cial of the proposed plan. Mr. Clark said he had 6een contacted by farmers in the Grande Prairie area after a local newspaper carried a story that meal and oil from the rapeseed crushing plant have been committed for ex- port for the next five years. Promoters of the plant have applied for federal and provincial government assist- ance and "therefore some of the production should be available for the people of said the Socred MLA. Rapeseed meal is a feed supplement for livestock. Mr. Clark said transporting it to the Peace River costs more than supplying it locally. At present the only rape- seed crushing plant is at Lethbridge. Mr. Clark said the Sex- smith location "just happens to be in Winston Bachus' (Conservative public works minister) riding." Mr. Notley said locating the plant in a more central place such as Rycroft or Fairview (in Mr. Notley's riding) would save farmers "thousands of dollars" in trucking costs. A group representing the National Fanners Union, Umfarm, Peace River Rape- seed Growers, and chambers of commerce at Fairview, Hines Creek, Manning, Ry- croft, Spirit River and Wan- ham has opposed the Sex- smith location, Mr. Notley said. "The government seems committed to Sexsmith even though the producers are op- said the NDP MLA. Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer has said on several occasions that the site is a matter that was decided by the promoters. However, he told the legi- slature, "We expect and hope in the coming years that this won't be the last rapeseed crushing plant that's built Replying to Mr. Clark's charge that rapeseed meal won't be available to local farmers, the minister said "I'd have to check that with the operators of the plant He added.

Mr. Notley asked if there were plans to equalize truck- ing costs to farmers. Dr. Horner said, "This is one of the factors being con- sidered not only for crushing plant proposed at Sexsmith, but also for the crushing plant in the Leth- bridge area He said a policy to equalize freight costs must be de- veloped for many kinds of agricultural processing plan- ned for the province, adding, "The question of transporta- tion is of prime importance to this government." Gopher control project at Pincher Creek Friday A pocket gopher control field day will be held south of Pincher Creek Friday at p.m. Bob Lyons, district agricul- turist for Pincher Creek said the pocket gophers are creat- ing problems again this year for area ranchers and farm- ers.

Sabra Barrett performed her way to second in Novice Solo, second in Novice T- Strut and for thin Flag Rou- tine. Other local baton winners were Larihie Drader, third in Beginner Solo, Renee Harris, second in Basic Routine and third in Advanced T-Strut, Renee Holt, second in Begin- ner Basic and Beginner Mili- tary, Linda Popson, fourth in Beginner Solo, and Vicki Rob- inson, second in Advanced Solo.

In the process of making the burrows, they make mounds up to one foot high and two feet in diameter with the soil. This causes problems for farmers and ranchers when they work on the land. Mr. Lyons said various me- thods of control will be dis- cussed, including how to probe the ground for burrows, trap- ping and use of a gopher bait- ing machine. The gopher baiting machine is pulled behind a tractor. It makes a small burrow six inches under the surface and drops a poisoned grain kernel every two feet. Mr. Lyons said the principle is that the gopher will follow the small burrow and eat the poison. The control methods will be discussed at the Ed Peters farm 6% miles south of Pinch- er Creek on the Waterton highway. E. S. P. FOX Certified Dental Mechanic FOX (Leth.)
