Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 LETHBRIDGE HERALD DMcmovr New York dressed hundreds of geese wait for processing line at Lilydale Plucking geese ready for market Prime geese Ralph Effler displays eviserated goose ready for package A month of feather plucking is over for 33 Hutterite colonies in Southern Alberta and Saskatchewan and more than prime young geese are ready for markets. Lilydale Poultry Sales Ltd. in the largest poultry processing firm in Southern annually processes geese for Calgary and local markets. Ralph manager of said all geese are brought to the processing plant by the colonies on a prearranged schedule es- tablished by the processor. The Hutterites kill the geese and pluck all the feathers from the birds and deliver them to the processor on a New York dressed basis The entrails are removed by plant personnel in Lethbridge because of federal health regulations. Prior to all geese are inspected on the farms by federal health of animals of- ficials. Mr. Effler said there has been considerable pressure for him to install mechanical feather plucking equipment at his plant so the Hutterites can bring the geese in live. The job of selling the feathers would then rest with the processing firm. Mr. Effler said the Hutterite women have increased complaints about the tedious work involved in the plucking job. Mr. Effler said a survey has shown that if the Hutterites have to continue plucking feathers from geese they will decrease their flocks. If the mechanical equipment is in- they will increase flocks. With mechanical Mr. Effler said his firm would be able to process and package to geese per year. The majority of the geese sales are at Christmas and New said Mr. Effler. Throughout the rest of the about 100 cases would supply the needs. Mr. Effler predicts the price of geese in the stores will be very high this year. The producers received 17 cents per pound before for their geese this year compared with helping to offset increased production costs Even with the higher Mr. Effler consumer de- mand for geese is excellent. Practically all the geese processed by Lilydale in November are already sold to retail outlets. He expects to sell through his own plant.

The concert began with Beethoven's Coriolanus Over- ture The slowness of tempo in the opening bars was wayward to the point of being yet the expan- siveness of the big tune was most impressive. The less said about the dialogue between the woodwinds and the strings in the development the and similarly the cellos were painful The pizzicatto string passages were surprisingly tidy but did not register as softly as they might have. I am afraid one could with the best will in the compliment the Symphony's complete mis- interpretation of this heroic Overture. The next number was Mozart's Prague Symphony. This was on a more inspired level. The opening movement was purposeful yet unhurried with the emphasis on the strength of the music. there was a distinct weakness of bass tone noticeable in the early which completely ruined the balance of sound Mozart had in mind for the violin passages leading into the allegro. The allegro was rather dispirited as it suffered from the squeaky tone produced by the violins a sound who loved the was hardly likely to have had in mind The andante was lethargic and tended to outstay its welcome. The players seemed to voice each note separately without any real attempt at phrasing. The character of the whole movement was that of a large pen- dulum beating regularly instead of flowing as it should have the players kicked into the rhythm of the finale with plenty of rosin and ended with a childlike burst of gaiety. The second half of the program began with Glinka's Kamarinskaya. This was a well played and intelligently judged performance. The dance had plenty of exuberance but a firmer rhythm now would not have come amiss. A special word of pi -oe to the brass and woodwind which in several piaces won unexpected glory and also to Lori Leister for her delectable performance. The highlight of the evening was Mendelssohn's War March of the Soldiers This was a delightful number in which delicacy and pomp commanded equal attention. There was just the right amount of tension with the tim- pani adding greatly to the military effect. The brass and strings throughout the performance were superbly light and clean No apology needed for Mendelssohn at all. The evening concluded with Gounod's Ballet Music from the Opera Faust. What should have been music of grace and elegance became sluggish and sentimental with Gounod's dynamic markings and gradations largely ignored. The dances had the necessary dash and brio but were never firm enough rhythmically. I do not want to leave the impression that these were all prosaic or uncommitted readings. There was some very musical playing last especially of the non classical numbers. Mr. Needham may not be the most technically skilled of conductors when it comes to setting and holding a but he has certainly improved the orchestra. The players seem to be of considerable promise and worthy of local as this was the most creditable performance to date. County to give taxpayers one more general meeting Lethbridge county council decided Monday to give the idea of a general ratepayers' meeting one more despite objections that no one bothers to attend the yearly sessions. Electors in the County of Lethbridge will have a chance to review county business dur- ing 1973 at a meeting in scheduled March 23. Under provincial municipalities have the to hold an an- nual general meeting. At the 1972 annual meeting held last spring in Picture six electors were in council was told Coun. Miro Tomasta said he agreed with the but questioned whether such meetings were necessary in view of low attendance in previous years. But Coun. Jim Nicol pointed out that if council refused to hold a electors may think something is being hidden from them. Council made its decision at the annual organization meeting of the county council a time when committee assignments are reviewed. But councillors apparently saw little they felt needed change Coun Dick Papworth was re-elected as while Coun. Otto Wobick will remain Deputy Reeve. Major committee assignments ap- pointments all remained but councillors did voice some objection to- provincial government re- quirements setting out eligibility for the county's school committee. Coun. Wobick cannot sit on the school committee because he lives in an area covered by the Barons Consolidated School District. Coun. Steve Slemko is ineligible because he is a Roman Catholic living in an area covered by a separate district. Both men told council that in their electoral there are many parents sending children to county schools But because their residences are outside county school their con- stituents are not properly represented Colorado oil project won't affect Syncrude City motor home plant grant gets A local motor homes manufacturer has received a federal department of regional economic expansion grant for a new plant in the city. McDonnell Conestoga Manufacturing Ltd. accepted an offer of about for the new plant based on a rate of five per cent of the approv- ed capital estimated at plus for each job created. The project is expected to create an estimated 39 jobs. A company spokesman said today the firm expects to be in its new plant now under con- struction at 5th Avenue and 33rd Street N by Dec 20. Harold a co-owner of the said the company which has sold three different motor home models locally will set up dealerships in the four western provinces for its products. He said production will begin in January at the new plant and the firm will hire men as production increases. The company currently has 10 employees. Alex Rebryna is another major shareholder in the which was purchased in and Ben Purnell is sales manager. The president of the Syncrude consortium building a giant Athabasca oil sands plant says development of huge oil reserves in Colorado won't affect his project. Frank Spragms said there could be shortage of capital down the if the reserves contained in Colorado shale are successful- ly exploited. The United States govern- ment has approved an auction for leasing the reserves to the highest bidder. It is to take place Jan 8 On a long term the Colorado reserves might attract capital otherwise used to develop the Athabasca Mr Spragms said. But the demand for oil is so high now that any amount Fibreglass should be used in greenhouse construction produced from either reserve would be easily he said. The Colorado oil is still more expensive than tar sands oil to produce but the province has expressed concern that a concerted effort on the part of the Americans could affect the tar sands' future.

Snow vehicles will be per- mitted in most western National Parks this winter on a limited says the direc- tor of Parks Canada's western region. L. H. Robinson says most trails used last year in the National Parks in Alberta and British Columbia will be open this winter. But the ban in Elk Glacier and Kootenay National parks will remain in force except for a half-time trancnnrtatinn fvtrririsir alftno the Mount Berland fire road in Kootenay. Snow vehicle permits are available without charge from park gates and administration offices and can be obtained at trailhead self-registration boxes. Most parks issue an an- nual permit. Regulations state these vehicles must stay on designated trails and straying from the trail or harassing animals could lead to a finp or six month's in iail while it is more expensive than should be used to build small W. B. Hutchin- research horticulturist in the greenhouse crops section of Brooks horticultural research centre says. Fiberglass will last for at least 20 while polyethylene will have to be replaced at least once a year. The department of agriculture in a news release says the location and design of a greenhouse are important for the do-it-yourself greenhouse builder. The most practical building is a structure 12 feet by 20 feet located where it can get a maximum amount of light. A greenhouse built against a residence can be heated by the house furnace or by a gravity hot water system or space heaters. Mr Hntrhinson recom- mends covering the green- house with although clear fiberglass is acceptable. The addditional tran- sparency of glass is an advan- tage during the winter when the light quality is he says. asbestos boards or snow fence may be used for the benches inside the greenhouse. Benches should not be more than three feet wide along the sides of the the centre bench can be anywhere from four to six feet wide. Walks 18 to 20 inches wide are big enough for a small greenhouse unless equipment such as carts and wheelbarrows is to be brought in. For watering the plants a labor saving device like a tap with an attached plastic pipe and nozzles could be Mr Hutchinson. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Bldg. 2225th St. S.
