Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, December 7, 1974 Magrath farmer honored by commodity groups MAGRATH Provincial and national sheep and sugar beet industry officials Friday paid homage to a Magrath farmer credited with better- ing the lot of all concerned with both agricultural sec- tors. Lalavee Rogers Jensen appreciation night in the Magrath Cultural Hall attracted an overflow crowd of 225 to hear government and industry officials heap praise on the man deemed to have had more effect on the sheep and sugar beet industries than any other person. In his introductory remarks, Alberta Agriculture Minister Hugh Horner said by honoring Mr. Jensen, the peo- ple of Magrath and district were honoring all people of agriculture who "had fought the good fight." He pointed to the establish- ment of the lamb slaughter plant in Innisfail which is to begin production in the spring as some of the foresight ex- hibited by Mr. Jensen in his push for better conditions for Alberta farmers. Mr. Jensen, who attended Brigham Young University in the United States and operated a garage before join- ing his father in a farming venture, helped establish several farm groups. John Vaselenak of Coaldale, representing the Alberta Sugar Beet Growers Association, said it was through the efforts of Mr. Jensen that Southern Alberta producers have the best con- tract in North America for their product. Farmers in Southern Alberta receive 63 per cent of the wholesale price of sugar as payment for growing beets each year. Mr. Vaselenak said many farm groups have tried to copy the pattern established by the sugar beet growers un- der Mr. Jensen's guidance but had failed. "He usually achieves most of the goals he aims for." price was a major program pushed for by Mr. Jensen. He said this program brought millions of dollars into the industry for producers and helped sugar beet producers to enjoy an en- viable position in agriculture. Bill Bensen Lethbridge, western manager for the Canadian Co-operative Wool Growers, said this sector of the sheep industry simply wouldn't be in existence if it weren't for the Jensen family. Mr. Jensen succeeded his father Chris as president of the wool growers. The work of Mr. Jensen in the sheep industry has already started to pay off for the producer in higher returns and it will soon start to pay off for the consumer, said Bob Shopland of Edmonton, secretary manager of the Alberta Sheep and Wool Com- mission. His practical knowledge and ability to negotiate has helped to build the sheep industry. City council budget meet Certified Dental Mechanic CLIFF BLACK, BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.

(Basement) Lethbridga Open weekdays City Scene Economy buoyant in October Lethbridge area residents withdrew million from their bank accounts in October, reflecting a buoyant regional economy. The debits, reported by the Canadian Bankers' Association this week, compare to withdrawals of million last Oc- tober and million this September. "It shows a healthy economic climate as far as the Lethbridge region is Al Radons, manager of the main branch of the Bank of Nova Scotia in the city. The higher rate of withdrawals' is probably connected to re- cent sugar beet-crop payments, but not to increased Christmas shopping, says Mr. Radons. The figures include all amounts debited by the banks to current, personal, chequing and savings accounts. The value of cheques drawn on the Bank of Canada, govern- ment of Canada and by the chartered banks on themselves are excluded in order to provide an indication of economic activity in the private sector only, the bankers' association says. Rail traffic back to normal Two CP Rail passenger trains were rerouted through Lethbridge Friday following a derailment near Medicine Hat. The two trains came through Lethbridge because the CP main line was blocked Friday morning when a westbound freight derailed at Redcliff. A CP Rail spokesman in Calgary said today the line was cleared up about 11 p.m. Friday and service has returned to nor- mal.

Tuesday, reports of sales, the Hereford test centre and from regional clubs will be heard. Election of officers is the last business scheduled. Women attending will be given a tour of the city and local industries. The Alberta Hereford Queen will be crowned during the banquet. Sheep producers ask reserve grazing rights MAGRATH Pleas for grazing rights on part of the giant federal Defence Research Establishment at Suffield for Southern Alberta sheepmen remain un- answered, but there is still hope, says a provincial in- dustry spokesman. Bob Shopland of Edmonton, secretary manager of the Alberta Sheep and Wool Com- mission, told The Herald Fri- day he has received a letter from federal authorities stating only cattle will be allowed to use the federal reserve for grazing, especial- Horner backs promise: continued rail role MAGRATH The Alberta government Friday reaffirmed its stand that no rail lines in the province can be abandoned without per- mission. Hugh Horner, deputy premier and minister of agriculture in the Lougheed admini- stration, told 225 people at the L. R. Jensen appreciation night tran- sportation will continue to play an important role in the total develop- ment of Alberta. And because the Alberta government wants a balanced growth throughout the province rather than development of massive metropolitan regions, it must provide the struc- ture for that growth. "Let's have nobody rolling up steel until we have an industry policy for this he said. Following a thunderous ovation from the overflow crowd, Dr. Horner carried the audience when he called for management of new- found provincial wealth rather than a spending policy to protect money for future generations. He said the differences between Edmonton and Ottawa on control of Alberta's new petroleum money are being fought with the people of the province in mind. It is the opinion of the Alberta government that a strong Alberta will make a stronger Canada. ly during dry years. Mr. Shopland said he told the authorities who control the reserve that sheepmen suffer just as much as cattlemen when there is a shortage of grass for grazing animals. He said there is now a chance some sheep will be allowed to use the Suffield range for grazing. The project was broached in 1973 by Tom Simpson of Brooks, representing sheepmen in his farming area. He also welcomed sheepmen from the Cardston Pincher Creek areas to use the area if permission to graze sheep was granted. Under present conditions, sheepmen must truck their animals to pastures north of Rimbey for grazing. But the cost of trucking them eats up most of the profits of keeping the animals. Mr. Shopland said he is in- terested in obtaining more grazing reserves especially in the foothills area where sheep and cattle can work together on the same land. He said it has been proved that sheep can do a good job in controlling the encroachment of brush onto pasture lands. Producers will attain better returns if they run both sheep and cattle on the same pasture and that pasture will be kept in better shape with both animals working af the same time, he contends.

Phone 328-4095 Although temperatures dipped early this morning to the lowest point this fall, mild weather is expected through the weekend. Highs of 40 degrees were forecast by the weather office for today with temperatures reaching 50 degrees Sunday. Early today the temperature dropped to 12, equalling the low for November.

Indian lecture cancelled Alberta Indian leader Harold Cardenal has cancelled his engagement at the Monday session of the Indian contemporary society series at the University of Lethbridge.

Youth pleads not guilty Darrel Robert Spitzer, 19, Lethbridge, pleaded not guilty to a charge of being in possession of a stolen stereo equipment worth more than and was remanded until Dec. 19 for trial in provincial court Friday. He was charged Nov. 7 at Coalhurst. Trail discussion Monday A slide show and discussion on an overland hiking trail in New Zealand will be featured 8 p.m. Monday at the Lethbridge public library. R. G. Hall, a Lethbridge physician, will discuss his ex- periences on the Milford Track which runs 33 miles through the southern New Zealand Alps. The area teems with unusual plant life, a special interest of Dr. Hall. The government or the public utilities board should hire one group of experts to intervene on behalf of all con- sumers in applications for general utility rate increases, the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association says. The consumer ends up pay- ing the costs of duplicated interventions, the association says in a letter to Premier Peter Lougheed, since the final costs of the rate hearings are usually assessed to the utility company, who in turn are authorized to recover these costs in their rates over a given period of time. Between February, 1973, and September, 1974, the AUMA paid to intervenors in the last Calgary Power Ltd. rate increase hearing, its letter says. This can be multiplied many times by other groups such as the City of Calgary, the Rural Electrification Association and private industrial groups, the AUMA letter says. MOVING?
