The crop was contracted to Vauxhall Dehydrating at per ton. dry basis, in the field. Before purchase is made, a committee of council headed by Mike Powell will investigate availability and delivery of new pfping. considering the wheel move type now in use, as well as the drag type and possibly the central pivot type which will irrigate 140 acres per revolution in 24 hours.

(Roy) WHITE, Municipal Administrator The Herald- District Fresh vegetable growers approve marketing board Loading coal at Corbin VERN DECOUX photo BROOKS Alberta's fresh vegetable growers have voted in favor of a marketing board. Clark Ferries, chairman of the Agricultural Products Marketing Council, says that 50.8 per cent of the 63 eligible registered producers voted in favor of the proposed plan to establish a fresh vegetable marketing board. A total of 68.1 per cent of those who cast ballots were in favor. The ballots were counted in the presence of represen- tatives of the Fresh Vegetable Growers' Association. One ballot was rejected because it was incorrectly marked. The marketing council will now ask the growers' associa- tion to nominate people for an interim board of directors to be appointed by the council. "One of the functions of the board will be to try to make the fresh vegetable industry- more attractive to growers." says Mr. Ferries. "One way to do this is to improve the prices that growers receive." Byron Creek Collieries shipped its first train- load of coal out of the Crowsnest Pass this week. The 88-car load of thermal coal had Thunder Bay as its destination. It is the first trainroad of a test shipment for Ontario Hydro's thermal plants on the Great Lakes. The coal was mined at Crobin, B.C., and was hauled out by truck to a landing near McGillivray on the CPR line a few miles east of Michel. A one-mile spur line was built to move the mine site 15 miles up the valley. Cairn to honor NWMP Fishing in Crowsnest Lake no match for years ago A cheque for to be spent on a commemorative cairn at Del Bonita was presented Friday to the Magrath Chamber of Commerce by the RCMP Centennial Committee. Charles Matkin. the chamber's centennial com- mittee chairman, said the cairn will be erected near the Del Bonita customs house, about 50 years north of the 49th Parallel. It will com- memorate both the centennial of the NWMP's arrival in Southern Alberta, and the long period of good relations between Canada and the United States, he said. The cairn will be unveiled in the fall, said Mr. Matkin. BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) University of Calgary archaelogist Dr. Brian Reeves says fishing in the Crowsnest Lake, near the Alberta B.C. border, is not what it used to be years ago. He says that 2.000 years ago Indians caught all kinds of fish in Crowsnest Lake, except lake trout or char. This sur- prised the archaelogist. because he expected those fish to be the native fish of the lake. Dr. Reeves has been carry- ing out archaeological work in the Crowsnest Pass for three years. He recently received results on fish bones found at his 1973 dig at the lake. A University of Washington specialist who identified vertebrae fish remains of the era says the species most commonly caught by the In- dians were suckers and lake whitefish. The suckers weighed from lour to six pounds and the whitefish from three to eight pounds. These two species ac- counted for 90 per cent of all the bones Dr. Reeves found. Rocky Mountain Whitefish. trout and cutthroats were also taken. The findings suggest that Crowsnest Lake, unlike rich fishing lakes such as Waterton or Lake Minnewanka, lacked lake trout or char in any numbers. He says fishing at Crowsnest Lake began years ago. It was not until 2.- 000 years ago that it became important to the Indians in the 'Pass. These people were probably the ancestors of the Kootenay Indians, says Dr. Reeves. These Indians lived on both sides of the mountains and fished in the rivers and lakes of southeastern B.C. Fishing continued to about 1500 A.D. at the Crowsnest Lake, says Dr. Reeves, and then the site the archaelogists excavated was abandoned. Analysis of the bones in- dicated the fish were caught between June and September. The lake whitefish. being an offshore species, were probably netted with gill nets weighed down with stone sinkers. A number of sinkers were found by archaeologists at the site. This is important, says Dr. Reeves, because it shows the Indians must have used canoes or boats of some kind to place their nets in the water. The suckers were obtained by spearing in shallow waters or trapping. Flat stones were found last year. These were imbedded in lake silts and were probably the base of a fish trap or weir. Dr. Reeves says the trapp- ing technique was used by Peigan Indians during the late 1800s when they were starving in their Porcupine Hills territory. Trapping is also used by B.C. interior and coasial Indians. In recent years, fishing has been good and bad at Crowsnest Lake. It has been difficult to catch rainbow trout in any numbers. It is an introduced species. Dr. Reeves says years ago trout fishing was equally difficult. The Indians do with suckers. Today lake whitefish, still present in the lake, can only be taken with nets and this is illegal and hardly sporting. The Indians didn't have that problem. Dr. Reeves says some biological condition has for many thousands of years limited trout production in the lake. He says modern scientific methods might be able to cor- rect this problem.
