Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 - THE lETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, December 17, 197T Moose, herds size to be vni CALGARY (CP I - The size of moose and elk herds in "Elk Island National Vark will be ciit this winter (o protect the range for tlic rcmainini! animals. Park wardens are to begin slaughteriJig IGj moose immediately with the moat and hides to be distributed among Indian bands across the prov^ince. About 175 elk are to l)e captured in net traps and transplanter! to various parts of the province. The reductions would leave about 30O moose, 250 elk and 400 plains bison on the range. SCIENTIFIC STUDY A park study also recommends the reduction of deer from a special 26-squ3re-mile isolation area which i."; the home of 33 purebred Wood Bison. The animals are used for scientific study and the deer are to be reduced to lessen the possibility of them carrying disease to the bison. Deer meat is also to be distributed to Indian bands. The game management i.s necessary, western region director R, P. Malis said, because the park has an unnatural fence and a lack of effective predators. Retraining courses helped group to obtain new jobs Rare rule employed by board CfflCAGO (AP) - Board of Trade directors today employed a rarely used rule to permit the "orderly liquidation of the December, 1971 wheat futures contracts." The board ruled that trading in the December option would be for liquidation only until further notice. December wheat expires ne-xt Monday at noon. The board also ordered that liquidation by longs be in multiples of one-third this session, FMday and Monday. It also or-demi that no trade shall be consummated at a price above 1.81% a bushel, the closing price Wednesdaj-. The directors said they took the action-last imposed in the 1930s-because stocks of wheat eligible for dehvery against the December contract had been dangerously low; the relationship of tlie cash wheat price to the Chicago futures value had spread out and could be susceptible to further divergence, and liquidation of open positions in December wiieat futures contracts by delivery or offset had slowed down. Trade in all wheat contracts, norraally opening at 10:30 a.m. EST, was held until noon.

Farm priees index falls OTTAWA (CP) - Falling prices for poultry and potatoes led to a slight decrease in October for the index of farm product prices. Statistics Canada said Wednesday. Hog prices were up, however. The October index, based on 1961 prices equalling 100, was 113.1, compared with a September inde.x of 113.4. That means farm products across Canada have increased in price by an average of only 13.1 per cent in 10 years. The index reached a high of 118 in February and March, 1970, declined to 108.9 in October, 1970, and with a few exceptions has been rising again since then. Prices for farm products last October rose in Nova Scotia, Saskalichewan, Alberta and British Columbia. The price indexes for other provinces all fell. Newfoundland is not included in the survey. Prince Edward Island showed the greatest October decline, to 121.2 from 125.6. The survey showed that 23.3 per cent of those who took basic training courses were employed before they did so and that employment among them nearly tripled to 60.8 per cent after. Employment among those taking vocational skill courses inci-eased to 7i).(i per cent from 47.2 per cent Of all thc^ic wha completed courses in 1970, HO per cent had been classed as having incomes below the poverty lines estab- lished by tlie Economic Council of Canada-$1,957 for a single person, $3,915 for a famii'.' of thi-ee. Among those below the poverty line were 94 per cent of the women listed as being the heads SIMPSONS-SEARS ^ The Dune Buggy Road racing set of their families. In the population generally, 20 per cent of female heads of families have incomes below the poverty line. Another important characteristic of the group was the fact that 45 per cent had less than nine years of schooling when admitted to the progranr. In the labor force generally, the rate is 2 per cent. The report stated that "persons already having some high school education score the most substantial post-training Income gains, but all groups increased tlieir earnings and-more im-portant^those at the lower end markedly increased their chance of permanent employment " Complete set Only The fun machine that goes "storming' across the sand (Junes!
