Priest Appeals For Help 'Working Holiday' InPeru Suggested For Farmers By JOAN BOWMAN Staft Writer A Montrea 1-born Roman Catholic priest, vho three years ago initiated a farmers' cooperative in Peru, says he wishes a few Alberta fanners would lend their experience with big farm machinery to Peruvian co-op members during the summer months. Rev. Andre Godin, a visitor to Lethbridge Thursday during a three-day southern Alberta tour, said Peruvian farmers are finding it difficult to make the switch from machete to machinery farming. "We can manage the sowing, but the harvesting is giving us a lot of trouble. "Southern Alberta farmers are born sitting on a combine. It is a very complicated machine, and the hardest one for the Peruvian farmers to manage." Father Godin, an Oblate of Mary Immaculate priest, started an agricultural co-op in 1967 near Tingo Maria, east of the Andes. The organization has 89 members and lends equipment, pesticide, fertilizer and advice to 2,000 more. The major crop is rice, which is planted in November, December and January. (The planting is staggered because farmers could not manage harvesting the total crop at one time.) Harvesting months are May, June and July. Romeo Maione, who accompanied Father Godin on his visit, indicated 80 per cent of the Peruvian population lives, in poverty. Mr. Maione is executive director of the Canadian Catholic Organization for development and peace, the church organization which backs Father Godin's work. Fire At Food Centre Fire this morning, at the Health Food Centre, 907 3rd Ave. S., resulted in fairly extensive heat and smoke damage according to manager Howard Oliver. Mr. Oliver said he believed the fire started in the electric motor of the refrigeration unit, and was detected when a neighboring business operator smelled smoke. The Lethbridge fire depart-rs?nt was called to the scene and extinguished the blaze. An estimate of damage was not available. . Fanners may take eight to 10 days to plant three acres of rice. The average income is $300 a year. Women, working 12 hours a day starting at 6 a.m., are paid 15 cents; men, for the same hours, make 30 cents. Mr. Maione castigated Can- Information Centre Here Aug. 13-15 A truck-mounted mobile information centre sponsored by the department of regional economic expansion will b e in Lethbridge Aug. 13 to 15. The aims and objectives of the department will be outlined in audio-visual presentations. Pamphlets and other literature will also be available to those wanting to know more about the department's work, especially in the area incentives program. The mobile centre will be parked on the boulevar'd on the east side of 6th St. S. between 5th Ave. and 6th Ave. S.

Canadians drink coffee from Brazil and eat chocolate from Ghana, but the average person in Brazil and Ghana gets little of the benefits of their own crop, Mr. Maione said. The church's plans for changes in the liturgy, theology or catechism don't mean much if the church doesn't concern itself with people, he said. He indicated the development and peace organization received submissions for "worthy projects" which would have required $7 million to fill. The organization had only $2 million to dispense. The co-op has received $60,-000 from the Canadian International D e v e 1 opment Agency, and $85,000 from the Catholic organization. The co-op members, who take seriously the co-op's self-help aspect, have taken upon themselves to raise $130,000. The two visitors, spoke with about 45 church members at Assumption Church Thursday, several of them from other than Catholic churches. Father Godin suggested the Canadian Council of Churches is showing interest in the project and may itself establish a development and peace group. THEM'S THE HURDLES! - Nothing like having a flat tire with a 90-ton electrical transformer on board. But the crew of this Baseline Transport Ltd. unit out of Calgary felt pretty lucky. It could have been 42 flats if all the wheels on the low-boy trailer and truck had let go. The trailer is rated at 150-ton capacity and has two strings of eight wheels across the back and the same arrangement on the front dolly. The truck has eight driving wheels and two fronts. The gross weight of the truck, trailer and trans- former was 122 tons. The transformer was being taken Thursday from a rail siding at Fort Macleod to a Calgary Power Ltd. sub-station nine miles west of Fort Macleod. The transformer was shipped pressure-filled with dry nitrogen to make sure its windings were kept dry. It will later be filled with 17,000 gallons of special insulating oil (only six parts per million water content).

Counsellor Aide Class Visits Lethbridge Municipal Hospital Practical Work Said Essential In Indian Counsellor Aide Plan The Lethbridge Jaycees are completing plans for their Pedal Pushers bicycle safety program this fall. Pedal Pushers will run for two-week periods at eight schools in the fall and eight schools in the spring, for children in Grades 1-4. Pedal Pushers, operated i n conjunction with the Alberta Safety Council, teaches children bicycle maintenance, bicycle safety and traffic safety and courtesy. The Jaycees have operated the Pedal Pushers for two years as part of their community project program. By RIC SWIHART Staff Writer Theory is a great thing but it takes practical experience to take advantage of the first Indian Counsellor Aide course offered in Canada, according to eight second year students at the Lethbridge Community College.

Ph. 327-5454 first-year students are utilizing all the teaching methods used at the LCC as well as video-tape machines loaned by the University of Lethbridge. Ed Ryan, co-ordinator for the program under the school of continuing education, said the program is designed to provide training for Indian students who have been chosen to operate as counsellor aides with the department of Indian affairs, counselling Indian people. He said all second-year students have been counselling in the Grades 1 to 12 educational system and the first-year students all have jobs waiting for them when thev finish this program. Lawrence Wildcat feels deal- ing with the parents is half the work of the counsellor when working with Indian families "because we have to try to get the parents interested enough in education to encourage their children to continue with their schooling. "We had non-native education counsellors come into the homes but it just didn't work out. "Native people counselling native people has a greater influence, especially with the parents, than a non-native could ever have." Frank Kaquitts, former head chief at the Morley Reserve, said he first noticed the real need for counselling after he SATURDAY DINE and DANCE MARV QUALLEY'S SUNSET TRIO 8:00 to 12:00 p.m. NO COVER CHARGE!

"I worked in the office for a period of time and got another angle on this counselling need by watching the parents of school-age children when they are not in their homes," he said. "It is apparent that field work is most important because the parents are in a more disturbed mood when they come into the office and they listen better when they are in their own homes." He said it is the definite duty of the counsellor to work with all ages of people. we had an "on-the-bit" city in which to establish especially since we had alraedy made the necessary arrangements to build in the city. City council and the location for the new Swift Canadian Co. Ltd. Lethbridge plant drew praise today from H. C. Chaffee of Toronto, president of the meat packing firm. Mr. Chaffee, accompanied by a Swift's director from Chicago, E. F. Huskisson, said his firm has had excellent co-operation with the city, substantially above average considering the type of negotiations necessary to establish such a plant. He said the location for the plant is excellent. The men, in Lethbridge to inspect the site and to meet the resident engineer, Gil Frans-sen, said the construction of the plant was on schedule.
