Alberta shipped 97.4 million bushels of wheat out of the province. Health Unit Field Work For Students Four students who were en- rolled in the public health course at the University of Al- berta did two weeks field work with the Lethbridge Health Unit during April and May, while two other students had one month of field experience. Four students from the school of nursing at the Leth- bridge Community College ob- served the program for one day. Dr. A. A. Byrne, Miss Agnes Short and I. N. Potter attend- ed the Canadian Public Health Convention held April 1 and 2. in Calgary Wider Use For Data From Survey Data from a parks and re- creation department survey will likely be sent to the pro- vincial government for inclu- sion in an over-all survey early in September. The department began col- lecting data last month on the use of local recreation facili- ties. Bill Brown, department su- perintendent, says a check will probably be made on who is using city pools and where they come from before UK in- formation is forwarded to Ed- monton. As the year ended, some 96.7 million bushels of wheat re- mained in country-point eleva- tors and about 102.4 million bushels still in farm storage. The Canadian wheat board announced Canada fell about 28 million bushels short of its export of 375 million bush- els.. "The sales were there, one official said, but it' boats don't arrive on schedule or if there are delays in foreign ports, then the estimate can miss by quite a bit." "F a r m e r s across Canada still have wheat stored, and how much the 1970 term will relieve them of depends great- ly on prices and crop yields in other countries." "The bright spot for Alberta farmers this fall lies in feed grains, p a r t i c u larly barley, since almost 50 per cent of Can- ada's barley is grown in Alber- ta. "Reports from the United States indicate the 1970 corn crop is badly infected by blight, and the estimated live billion bushel crop could be se- riously reduced. "This -hole in the feed grains market could and likely will be filled by Canadian barley and oats." 5 Acres Destroyed NEW DAYTON (HNS) Fire recently destroyed about five acres of barley on the Hal Cronkhite farm near here. The fire was started when burning straw on the motor of a com- bine flipped into the straw buncher and set fire to the bar- ley field. WORK PROGRESSES ON STAKE CENTRE Construc- tion of the tDS Stake Centre at 28th St. and Scenic Drive is going ahead on schedule, according to church officials and should be completed by the end of the year. The new building will provide meeting and recreation facilities for some 14 wards of the church in tethbridge and district. It will be used regularly by two of the seven wards in the city. Freeways Will Affect South Traffic CALGARY (Special) New freeways affecting Lethbridge- Calgary-Edmonton traffic are to be built nortn and east of Calgary, necessitated in part by closing the present section of Highway 2 past the airport when the airport is expanded. Coming south toward Cal- gary, Highway 2 will fork Balzac, a few miles north of the city. One super-highway will turn right and go down the Nose Creek valley into the city, the other will join the Trans Canada highway near Chestermere Lake. The en- larged airport will be between them. This would encourage Lethbridge-Edmonton traffic to use Highways 23 and 24. Construction of the Nose Creek road will cost 512 million. The city's million part of the job will be started this month. Highway 2 has been a four- lane undivided highway from Calgary past Balzac to Airdrie, and divided from there to Ed- monton. Rebuilding it and dividing it between Balzac and Airdrie is now nearly com- pleted.

Council members agreed to Breathalysers, eye testing send a request to Highways equipment, blow-out tire, safe- Minister Gordon Taylor that ty brochures, and representa- tives of both the City Police and RCMP are expected to be on hand for the show. The remaining major bottle- neck lias been the Trans-Can- ada through the city, following 3Gth Avenue North. At various times the re-routing of the high- way north of the city has been considered but nothing has come of it. The latest proposal, advanced a few days ago, is keeping it on 16th Avenue, buying property Ion both sides, especially the north, and widening the avenue. Land purchase costs may make the proposal prohibitive. Vehicle Inspection At Milk River The motor vehicle inspection unit number three, formerly stationed in Lethbridge, has completed two weeks in Milk River and will move to Bay- mond Aug. 24-Sept. 4. Medicine Hat unit number two will be stationed at Fore- most Aug. 17 through Aug. 28 and then will move to Bow Is- land Aug. 31 to Sept. 11. An official said the inspec- tion service is free, with safety slickers issued to ail cars meet- ing the safety standards. Cars failing to pass the in- spection are not compelled to be fixed, but stickers will be given only to car owners who return with the necessary re- pairs made to their vehicles.
