The association has passed thd 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 Associates Ltd. of Toronto who described a typical Alberta hunter as "one of a mob of armed men" who is not welcome on the land. "The only aspect of the pursuit of game that remains as a reminder of the frontier is the insistence of the modern Alberta hunter that game is frpe. "Today two, 500 - pound elk cm 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 game and that of the 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.': The current system has a "builtjn 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 control 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- life drew i strong rebuttal from Bob Scammell, vice - president of the Alberta Fish and Game Association, who said "in a lot of ways the ranchers are a greedy bunch of bounders." Before entering into a discussion of a pay - to - hunt system "we would like to have something done about' the terrible situation in the province re- garding the use to which publio land is being put." Public lands have steadily been closed to hunting and fish* ing and "grazing leases are notoriously 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, he said. Brothers won't lose farm for failing to pay taxes WABAMUM (CP) - Two brothers who have lived on a section of farmland since 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 have farmed the land since 1943, Mr. Russell assured them 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 within 30 days, the land would be auctioned. Bidding on the first quarter section ended at $3,300 and on the second $2,765, but 'since such sales require ministerial approval before being valid, the minisler'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.

Grain quotes Thursday (basis Lakehead): CPR bid decision reserved CALGARY (CP) - The Canadian Transport Commission reserved decision 001 an application by Canadian Pacific Ltd. to purchase up to 50 per cent of Commercial Solid Pipe Line Co. of Toronto. Eight petroleun>sulphur companies and the governments of Alberta amd Saskatchewan objected to Canadian Pacific's bid. The objectors stressed the purchase would lessen competition between various modes of transportation. Commercial Solids, controlled by Shell Canada Ltd., is researching the pipeline movement iof 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 a.s 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 MOOSE JAW (CP) - City officials met with a delegation of Romanian officials hero to discuss location of a proposed tractor-assembly plant. Mayor J. E.
