He said the well does not have a cement casing extending to the sur- face to control the pressure exerted by the flowing water. Mrs. Whipple would have ample water at her bouse if the well was fixed and he has proposed to the water haulers they pay for the re- pairs. AIR VAC 1811 2nd AVE. S.

SHOES long strides toward economic independence. The welfare rolls are still much too says reserve program co-ordinator Gordon McDougall. But with the help of planning more projects to involve and assist the reserve population have been launched. The and perhaipa most is the forma- tion of Peigan Developments Co. Ltd. Under control of a 10-man board of directors and with the approval of the band the company has complete control of the re- serve ranch. The company has leased acres of grazing land from the tribal administra- tion at a cost of an- nually. The company is also pay- ing back a loan used to buy cattle from the re- serve with payments set at a year. The ranch now has control of breeding in- cluding 125 young heifers. Norman one of the youngest says the planners established a five- year program for economic development for the ranch. They estimated that at the end of the five-year the ranch cattle population should be about The tribe is now trying to engage a company to conduct a land use says Mr. and the results of the study will determine what the ranch will do in the fu- ture. There are many more acres on the reserve than the now leased by the ranch com- but the majority of the remaining land is used as community pasture. don't want to make the ranch so big that it will hog all the animals and we don't want to push any indi- vidual ranchers off their said Mr. Grier. we want to make sure we're using all the land pos- sible in the most efficient Already employing four full-time the ranch also provides a source for casual employment for re- serve workers. Mr. Grier says 10 extra men are employed during the spring and haying operations call for two extra. During the calving three extra employees are used. The ranch also sponsored two men to an artificial in- semination school in Calgary last year. A representative of the school was then brought to the reserve to help insemin- ate 125 ranch animals in a special cross-breeding pro- gram designed to upgrade the quality of the cattle. Mr Grier said an invitation for individual reserve ranch- ers to enter into the artificial insemination program was poorly received this year but he hoped that when they could see the results of the ranch program they would make the change.

Warbles are small worm- type animals which move through an animal's blood stream to emerge through the causing a loss of meat and hide quality. Mr. Gordon said only four or five areas of the province still were outside the warble control program and three of these areas had indicated they would take the neces- sary action to become in- volved if necessary. He said since the program was started five years the number of infested ani- mals had decreased to 25 per cent from 60 per cent of the cattle population. The number of animals with five or more warbles included only 10 per cent of the infested he said. Grazing leases and the pos- sibility of community pas- tures for sheep prompted promised action from the government sector. Betty secretary for the Pincher Creek and Dis- trict Sheepmen's pointed out that the establish- ment of community pastures for sheep would improve the economy of sheepmen and small farmers and help the general ecology of existing range leases. Mrs. Cyr said there are only two community sheep pastures in the province located in central and north- ern Alberta. Such a pasture in the south would allow more farmers to raise sheep and present sheepmen to enlarge their she said. The sheep would also be able to pasture with eating weeds and under- brush which damage existing cattle pastures. Mr. Schuler said small fanners are having difficulty getting adequate amounts of grazing lease land because the majority of this land is being held by big ranchers. He claimed that when the big ranchers are selling they are including the crown leases in the sale for the same amount the deeded land was bringing. He suggested that there were likely ways the long- term leases held by big ranches could be broken. Dale McKenzie of Warner asked for clarification on the recently announced feed grains policy for Canada. Jim assistant deputy minister of agricul- said that very question was being heard loud and dear from the beef industry. He said the fine which hasn't been spelled out in news should be made more clear to an Al- berta delegation which is to meet with representatives of the Canadian wheat board in Winnipeg Wednesday. Dr. O'Donoghue said a lot of people in the province are their until the full impact of the pro- posed policy is made known. A lack of action by powers to whoever Ibey was causing a continu- ing problem for many farm wives under the provincial rural electrification according to Barbara Tiegs of director for the Women of Unifarm for Dis- trict 13. Mrs. Tiegs said many farm wives have been complaining of a lack of power which was causing freezer and fridga motors to bum out. Business- es in the Brooks area had been complaining of poor electric supplies also. She said complaints to Cal- gary Power resulted in re- plies of how good the com- pany was and nothing else. E. S.
