Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, December 17, 1971 Moose, Elk herds size to be cut CALGARY (CP) - The size of moose and elk herds in Elk Island National Park will be cut this winter to protect the range for the remainin.t animals. Park wardens are to begin slaughtering 105 moose immediately with the meat and hides to be distributed among Indian bands across the province. About 175 elk are to be captured in net traps and transplanted to various parts of the province. The reductions would leave about 300 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-square-mile isolation area which is 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 is necessary, western region director R. P. Maris 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 CHICAGO CAP) - Board of Trade directors today employed a rarely used rule to permit the "orderly liquidation of the December, 1971 wheat Mures contracts." The board ruled that trading in the December option would be for liquidation only until further notice. December wheat expires next Monday at noon. The board also ordered that liquidation by longs be in multiples of one-third this session, Friday and Monday. It also ordered that no trade shall be consummated at a price above 1.81% a bushel, the closing price Wednesday. The directors said they took the action-last imposed in the 1930s-because stocks of wheat eligible for delivery against the December contract had been dangerously low; the relationship of the 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 wheat futures contracts by delivery or offset had slowed down. Trade in all wheat contracts, normally opening at 10:30 a.m. EST, was held until noon. OTTAWA (CP) - Employ-1 ment more than doubled among .. group of 125.713 persons after 1 they completed retraining courses in 1970, Manpower Minister Otto Lang told the Commons Thursday. Mr.Lang said about 70 per cent of the group obtained jobs within three or four months of completing a retraining course. Before being referred to the retraining program by Canada Manpower counsellors, he said, only 33 per cent of the group had been employed. The average weekly income for members of the Class of '70 rose by 12 per cent for the men and 27 per cent for the women. Male graduates were earning an average of $105 a week compared with $94 before retraining; female graduate-, many of them the heads of their families, had incomes increased to $64 a week from an average of $50. CONDUCT SURVEY . i Mr. Lang based his statement ' on results of what was described in background papers as the most comprehensive survey of retraining graduates ever conducted. Questionaires were sent to each person who completed a full-time skill-training course. Those who completed courses to upgrade basic training in English or French, mathematics and science, were surveyed on a sample basis with questionaires being sent to one of every four graduates. Close to 60 per cent of those receiving questionaires replied to them. The background parsers stated that the findings derived from the replies appear to hold true also for those who did not answer.

Farm prices 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 index 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, Saskatchewan, 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 taJdng vocational skill courses inn-eased to 79.6 per cent from 47.2 per cent. Of all these who completed courses in 1970, 60 per cent had been classed as having incomes below the poverty lines estab- lished by the Economic Council of Canada-$1,957 for a single person, $3,915 for a family of three. Among those below the poverty line were 94 per cent of the women listed as being the heads 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 program-. 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 their earnings and-more im-portanU-those at the lower end markedly increased their chance of permanent employment " SIMPSONS-SEARS The Dune Buggy Road racing set 19" Complete set Only The fun machine that goes 'storming' across the sand dunes!
