Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE KTHUIDOE HUAU) Wtdnwtay, February J, 1971 Boys in hockey double 1966 More ice time sought for city youth By JIM MAYBIE Herald Staff Writer In response to a request from the Lethbridge Miner] Hockey Association, the parks and recreation commission took some steps Tuesday night in an effort to obtain more ice time for youngsters. Bill Brown, parks and rec- reation department superinten- dent, told the commission that if a new ice arena were bui'.t now, it could be filled 60 to 70 per cent of the time with book- ings the department has turn- ed down. Many groups using the pres- ent facilities say they could also make use of more ice time. Minor Hockey spokesmen said that in 1966 they had 315 children in hockey with hours of ice time. There now are 600 boys involved and only 950 hours of ice time. The commission was told Siat some boys get one hour of ice time a week while others get as little as one hour a week. The spokesmen said they could use double the ice time they have if they are to continue their program and expand it as planned. Another rink is need- ed, they said. Minor Hockey is to be ad- vised the commission is recom- mending to the parks and rec- reation department that: Hockey shall be given preference and extended evening hours over casual rec- reational hockey; NOW IT'S OFFICIAL Lethbridge city police ore now working under the terms of a new two-year contract, following signing csremonies Tuesday at city hall. Putting the official seal on one of the documents are J. H. Vosburgh, chairman of the Police Com- mission, left, and Constable Ed Chymboryk, president of the Lethbridge Police Associa- tion. Looking on are, left to right. City Manager Tom Nutting, Detective Terry Waters, association secretary, and Tom Band, city personnel manager. The contract gives police- men an 11 per cent raise for 1970 and a further nine per cent in 1971. Negotiations started Jan. 22, 1970; the arbitration award that settled the matter was handed down Jan. 15, 1971. The time needed to settle ths terms of the contract is not a record, according to Mr. Band. 1970 was 'make do' year with sugar beet labor Last year was another case of "making do" with the quan- tity and quality of labor avail- able for working sugar beets in southern Alberta, delegates at the annual meeting of the Alberta Sugar Beet Growers' Association were told in Leth- bridge today. Canada Manpower brought in some 700 workers. Another Annual meeting The 32nd annual meeting of the St. Patrick's Savings and Credit Union Ltd. will be held in the El Rancho at p.m., Saturday, Feb. 13. Business to be discussed will include election of officers, changes in the Credit Union Act to make appointments to a credit committee by the board of directors and a name change for the organization. It will also be determined if the credit union should gain an open bond, or remain confined only to use by Catholics as it now is. came in on their own. About 100 high school and uni- versity students were also used in the season. A shortage of labor showed up in the Picture Butte area last summer, according to a report given delegates by the beet growers' association's la- bor committee. Many days when each of two labor hostels should have had 40 to 50 workers, they hM 12 or 15. Protests were made to Can- ada Manpower for failing to bring in enough workers. Be- cause of this, the federal-pro- vincial commmittee of agricul- tural manpower has agreed to include one hostel operator, or their representative, on the re- cruitment team, at no cost to the beet growers. The committee report urged growers to order their labor needs through Canada Man- power in an organized move- ment and to honor the ap- lication as the labor arrives. Some suggestions apparently were made to the committtee to recruit more labor than needed to offset workers mov- ing from farm to farm. This, it was stated, is contrary to Canada Manpower policy and is discouraged by the growers! committee. Holmes attends special course Dr. N. D. Holmes, head of the crop entomology section of the Lethbridge Research Sta- tion, is attending an emergency measures course at Arnprior, Ontario this week. This is a special course spon- sored by the Canada depart- ment of agriculture to deal with food contamination in primary and secondary food industries. Emergency measures requir- ed to deal with cases of con- tamination of foods by nuclear and other toxic agents will be set out. Marketing bill opposed at cattlemen's meeting By STEVE BAREttWI Herald Farm Writer BANFF The federal gov- ernment's national farm mar- keting bill came under fire at the 75th annual convention of the Western Stockgrowers As- sociation here. Delegates voiced strong op- position to the bill since it would affect them adversely, end added that the industry does not need "outside med- dling." The association wants to be exempted from the bill's pro- visions, and to stay out of it. Charles Gracey of Toronto, general manager Cana- dian Cattlemen's Association, also protesting the bill says the bill's provisions "are contrary to the hopes, wishes and as- pirations of cattlemen the nation." Government officials have called for speedy expedition of the bill and have on several occasions indicated the cattle industry would be exempt from the legislation. The Commons' a g r i c u 1 ture committee has been seeking further farm or- ganization opinion on the bill before it receives final ap- proval in the House. Mr. Gracey said he had been challenged to justify the cattle- men's stand, which would curb imports of beef from Australia and New Zealand. "The fact is that while Can- ada is an advocate of- free t r a d e in the world, it is the only country with no import duties on beef. Other countries give lip service to free trade but slap on high duties." The American National Cat- tlemen's Association complain- ed about Canadian export oi manufacturing beef last sum- mer and threatened to ask for sanctions from the United States government. "However, they became strangely silent toward the end of the year when Canada went on an import base for slaugb- Mr. Gracey said. Among other business dis- cussed at the convention was endorsation of Canfax, a sys- em of reporting livestock prices and sales. The market information ser- vice was set up in 1970 after several Alberta feedlot opera- tors became concerned about the old price-establishing me- Revision of tax assessment asked BANFF Dissimilar taxa- tion assessment of agricultural land is a problem in Alberta, according to delegates at the 1971 stockgrowers convention here. Apparently land similar in productivity potential has been assessed quite differently, de- pending on whether it is leased or privately-owned. Tom Gilchrist, of Milk River, chairman of the association's taxation committee presented a brief at the convention call- ing for revision of taxation regulations. Mr. Gilchrist urgeci stock- growers to press for adoption of a new assessment ratio of 4.2 to one, as opposed to the current ratio of 3.2 to one when comparing cultivated land to grazing land. This would result in a 25 per cent reduction of assessed grazing land values.

Other items dealt with by the taxation committee include adjustment for location as ap- plied to pasture and hay land and use of headquarters or loading corrals in computing distances. Stock carrying capacity rat- ings should reflect conditions which include effective utiliza- tion of pasture, considering problems of accessibility, isola- tion and presence of poisonous plants. Mr. Gilchrist said the com- chanism used at terminal mar- kets. In addition to this, it was felt market information particularly those concerning numbers of cattle on feed- were most inadequate. Eion Chisholm, of Okotoks, marketing chairman for the as- sociation said experience has shown that a change in format would be desirable.
