The assiociatiotn has pas-sed the! report to the provincial government and urged a pay-to-hunt system that would also involve more control over leased crown land. HUNTER RAPPED The report was prepared by consultants Hedlin, Menzies and Ass;ociates Ltd. of Toronto who described a tvpical Alberta hunter as "one of a mob of armed men" who is not welcome on the land. "The only aspect of the pursuit nt game that remains as a reminder of the frontier is the insistence of the modern Albar-ta hunter that game is frpe. "Today two, 500 - pound elk on an Alberta ranch consume an amount of grass almost equivalent to that consumed by � 1,000 - pound cow and the presence of 100 elk on a range constitutes a subtraction of 50 head of mature cattle from the capacity of the range." The farmer thus bear? the cost of the raising the eame and that of tbe annual hunter invasion "with all the inherent risk of fire, damage to fences, wounding of livestock and disruption of productive activities on the farm or ranch." Tlie current system has a "built:in incentive" to minimize the amount of game. Most great changes in game populations are the result of habitat loss and "the single most important element in the future of hunting is the attitude of those who confcrol the habitat." If ranchers seek changes in game laws and management, said the report, it would be as much in the interests of the game herd and hunters and the rancher. The idea of compensation for the use, of leased land by wild- CPR bid decision reserved life drew ^ strong rebuttal from Bob Scammell, vice - president of the Alberta Fish and Game Assbciation, who said "in a lot of ways the ranchers are a gi-eedy bunch of bounders." Before entering into a discussion of a pay. - to - hunt systom "we would like to have something done about � the terrible situation in the province re- garding the use to which publi� land is being put." Public lands have steadily been closed to hunting and fishing and "grazing leases are no-toribusly restrictive in this sense." The need to hunt on private lands would not be so great if there was not such a loss of public lands, be said. Brothers won^t lose farm for failing to pay taxes WABAMUM (CP) - Two brothers who have lived on a section of farmland smce 1943 gained a last - minute reprieve from the auctioneer's hammer Thursday. Municipal Affiars Minister Dave Russell said he was intervening directly to prevent the two from losing their farmland, 40 miles west of Edmonton. In a letter to Albert and Denzil Jones, who hiave farmed the land since 1943, Mr. Russell assured tliem he would not approve the tax sale of two of their quarter sections last Monday by the County of Parkland. There was no bidding on the other two sections. A total of $2,469 in back taxes covering almost 15 years is owed by Albert, 62, and Denzil, 53, and the county sent final notice on Sept. 22 saying that if the taxes are not paid vnthin 30 days, the land would be auctioned. Bidding on the first quarter section ended at $3,300 and on DEPARTMENT OF INDIAN AFFAIRS AND NORTHERN DEVELOPMENT BAND MANAGER REQUIRED Ermineskin Band - Hobbema, Alto.

The objectors stressed the purchase would lessen competition between various modes of transportation. Commercial Solids, controlled by Shell Canada Ltd., is re-sea,rching the pipeline movement of sulphur but has no immediate plans to construct a sulphur slury line. F. S. Burbidge of Montreal, Canadian Pacific vice-president, told the commission his company wants sulphur traffic to continue by rail as long as it is economical. It wants to be in a position to offer traffic by pipeline if rising costs make it impossible to continue sulphur shipments by rail, he said. Tractor plant site talked MOOS'E JAW (CP) - City officials met with a delegation of Romanian officials hero lo discuss location of a proposed tractor-assembly plant. Mayor J. E. Pascoe said "it would appear the Romanian officials are keeping an open miind in regard to the best possible location on the prairies." "We think Moose Jaw is an ideal site for the factory because of our location in the centre of the wheat growing area and our direct connection with American markets." the second .$2,765, but 'since such sales require ministerial approval before being valid, the minister's letter pre-empted the county's action. Mr. Russell told the brothers that their $300 down payment 10 days ago on the taxes owed was what prompted his intervention. The brothers, who spent the depression years working on British Columbia fruit farms to raise the money to buy their farm, have promised "to sell cattle as early as possible" to pay off the taxes.
