PHIL ILLINGWORTH photo Milk River ridge proposed as new wildlife area A part of the Milk River ridge could be set aside as a nature reserve if sufficient public pressure is exerted on government, says Julian Kinisky, vice-chairman of the Alberta Environment Conser- vation Authority. The area of concern has been a traditional Indian stronghold, an area deemed important in Indian heritage as a source of power, he said. It contains invaluable ar- tifacts and information on In- dian culture and history. "If people in the area would like to see that land designated as a park, they can write to the government." he said. "Perhaps public hearings can be held in the area that would end with a recommendation the area be set aside." Mr. Kinisky said the area in question has little agricultural value and its future isn't bright. Lodge building on schedule Construction of Peigan Crow Lodge, the largest development ever for the Peigan Reserve, is "on schedule'', says band manager Henry Potts.

Twenty Peigan workmen and two company foremen have laid footings and are currently erecting arena walls, says band manager Potts. The 500 seat arena, which will include a regula- tion size hockey rink and dressing rooms is scheduled lor completion in December. OLYMPIC STAIN SALE TO AUGUST 15th ONLY per gallon SO50 3 per qt.

Buffalo-crossed cattle provide rancher's hope By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald District Editor DEL BONITA A little bit of the "old west" lives at the Joe Juhasz ranch north of here. He has three buffalo, an animal once hunted almost to extinction but now pampered, thriving and somewhat of a tourist attraction here. "Sometimes there will be five or six cars lined up on the highway as people take pic- tures." says Mr. Juhasz. Highly unpredictable, his 2.- 000 pound buffalo bull has threatened the rancher more than once. "He will threaten you. run up and shake his head." says Mr. Juhasz. "I suppose if I ever started to run. he would ohase me. But if you kind of hold your ground, he will stop." He got them for each, making the purchase from the Flathead Buffalo Preserve in Montana. They run with five Highland cows and Mr. Juhasz was hopeful of a buffalo Highland cross calf this spring. One of the cows did calve, but the rancher can't be sure yet if its a buffalo cross. It's probably a Highland because the Highland bull was com- peting with the buffalo bull for the attention of the cows last summer. Raised with the cattle, the buffalo "stay with those cows real well." This overcomes the one big problem buffalo men face the powerful dis- dain these animals have for fences. A cow buffalo can clear the fence from a standing jump. "They are pretty fast but not for too long a distance and they are quick." says Mr. Juhasz. His friend Gene Beimler of Cardston also bought a small herd of buffalo. "His got out on them a cou- ple of times last winter and their place is near the moun- tains." says Mr. Juhasz. "They had quite a bit of trou- ble getting them back. Finally they went out on skidoos and got them in." The Del Bonita rancher's buffalo stay put unless the buffalo calf crawls under the fence at the ditch. Then, "she gets kind of worried about the calf and she can clear that fence pretty easy." The bull, has his own recreation. They put a big tractor tire up for the bull to butt. "He just chucks it around like a tennis ball." says Mr. Juhasz. The tire is tied to a stout post. The bull likes to flip it with his neck and make ringers. There are other benefits to owning buffalo. "They are pretty good weather forecasters." says Mr. Juhasz. "When they get to running around and around this old pasture for an hour at a time well, in a few days we will get a cold spell or a storm." The three year old bull weighs 2.000 pounds, and will probably grow for another year. "I got them when they were five months old. For a hobby more than anything. But they are expensive to feed, eat 20 pounds of grain a day. half oats and half rolled barley. He says they "make kind of a sound like a pig they will just grunt." Mr. and Mrs. Norman Howg of Enchant are pleased to an- nounce the graduation in nursing of their daughter Cathleen Klemen. Cathleen graduated from the Grant MacEwan Community College. Edmon- ton. She has accepted a posi- tion at the Misericordia Hos- pital. Edmonton. No calves yet Rancher Joe Juhasz of Del- Bonita runs a buffalo bull with his Highland cattle.
