Cameron Winter found a new friend during the holiday season, parked nicely downtown at a no-parking sigh. In the true spirit of the season, the boy and his friend exchanged good wishes. It was a rather one-sided verbal conversa- tion but no doubt the horse had plenty of thoughts. Alternative forms of govern- ment are to be discussed at a meeting of a local government study group in Ihe Crowsnest Pass in January. A spokesman for the group said copies of the New Towns Act and Urban Counties Act had been obtained and were being studied before any direct ac- tion was taken by the group to initiate a reorganization of the government of the towns in the 'Pass. The communities involved are Blairmorc, Bellevue, Cole- man and Frank, and Impnno ment District No. 5. Representatives from the localities have held a series of meetings since last summer. At the last one, in October, W. D. isbister, assistant deputy min- ister of municipal affairs, out- lined several different types of governments that could replace the present set-up, under which each town has its own civic ad- ministration. The provincial acts now being studied by the group pro- vide details of the alternatives group is to come up with a i tal body in the 'Pass has been presented by Mr. isbister.

Audience enjoys hiss and boo session at nanto Babes in the Wooi L By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer The 1970 Christmas panto mime, Babes in the Wood opened Saturday at the Yales Memorial Centre and proved to be yet another annual chance for children and adults alike to vent their frustrations in pub- lic. Screeching boos and hisses al the villain and loud cheers for the heroes, an audience of about 350 Saturday night took their laughs at the Lakevisw area's expense and, dignity not- withstanding, rambled through the finger twisting children's favorite, Ittsy Bitlsy Spider. Sponsored by the Allied Arts Council and written, directed and choreographed by Muriel JoUiffe, the show irregularly revolved around two young wards cf a treacherous uncle and the attempts by a good- hearted Icacher, Dame Trot, to keep the uncle's grasping pinkies off the wards' estate. Starring as Dame Trot is Frank Fcatherstone, Coal- dale high school teacher who appeared as Alfred P. Doolittle in the recent popular Leth- bridge Musical Theatre produc- tion of My Fair Lady. Mr. Feathcrstone functions as the mainspring of the year- ly pantos and Babes in the Wood is no exception.

Chris Mills, Western Stock Growers' Association secretary says it is the first time in about three years that beef has moved in any quantity into Canada. The movement aided by a strong Canadian de- mand for beef and higher Ca- nadian prices. He emphasized beef produc- tion is tied to the North Amer- ican market, not just the Ca- nadian market, and prices in the U.S. are depressed because of a strike in that country's packing industry. "We Uiink this is a gi thing." At Omaha, Nebraska, cattle prices now are about S2C per hundred pounds, compared with in September. Prices on choice steers in Canada Man injured in collision One man was injured early Monday morning in a truck-car accident 20 miles west of Leth- bridge. The truck driver was identi- fied by Fort Macleod RCMP as lharles Con try of Wichita Falls, Texas. The names and number of persons riding in the car have lot been released, although the lospitalized man is believed lave been a passenger in the car. The injured man is in hos- pital at Fort Macleod. Details of his injuries have not been released. range from meaning that even with the cents- per-pound tariff imposed on the American cattle, money can be made. Mr. Mills said the U.S. pro- ducers are taking advantage of the strong Canadian demand and if the situation were re- versed Canadian cattle would be moving into the States. Letbbridge officials say a shortage of fat cattle in Can- ada over the past few months has resulted in high prices for these cattle, but the industry is slowly responding to the de- mand. Mr. Mills stressed that there is no over-all shortage of cat- tle in North America and 90 per cent of the time Canadian producers can meet this coun- try's requirements. He predicted that the U.S. beef imports will cease about February as prices south ot the border increase.
