J2 THI lETHBRIDGi HIWUD Friday, MiMiy 5, i Oats, barley pay mean little here Final payments which the Canada wheat board announced on the 1969-70 barley and oat crop will not likely inject sub- stantial sums of money into southern Alberta's economy, but in view of the fact the final payment was not expected at all, no one is complaining. The payments averaged 9.7 cents for a bushel of oats and 2.6 cents per bushel of barley, bringing the total payment to about 52 cents per bushel of Art show opening The public is Invited to an of ficial opening tonight at o the Crane Weaver Collectors Exhibition at the art gallery o the University of Lethbridge. The exhibition, held in thi old Fort Whoop Up buildin on the U of L campus, feature 61 art works in various medi collected over more than decade by Charles Crane, asso ciate professor of art, an Larry Weaver, assistant profes sor of art. ats and 65.73 cents per bushel barley. The final payments amountee million and L.7 million for oats. Grain officials in Lethbridge aid the payment could be at- ributed to the fact that oats and barley in the 1969-70 croo ear moved quickly through levator systems and thus neayy storage charges were avoided. One official said this illus trates there Is nothing to be Oained by carrying large quan ities of grain and accumulat ng heavy storage charges. "This payment and the con- tinuing good prospects for th current year may encourag more farmers to sell through She wheat board." The wheat board indicatec the mailing of cheques to th producers receiving f nal payment for oats will sta immediately and the cheques the nearly barley pr ducers will follow. Prairie producers deliveret more than 163 million, bushe of barley and nearly 18 milli bushels of oats to the whe board in the 1969-70 crop yea BUT DONT DO IT PUBLIClY-Perhaps the sign has become weathered over the with the result that some words are missing.

H. (Scotty) Sinclair has put enough gasoline into cars during his 42 years as a ser- vice station attendant to drive his Ford to the moon and back 200 times! Since he came from Scotland and started "manning the pumps" for Pyramid Mo t o r s Ltd. in Lethbridge in 1929, he has answered the "fill 'er up" call to the tune of some gallons. In 1929 gasoline came in one grade and sold for 28 cents a gallon. Today the lower of two grades which make up the bulk of sales, sells for 51 cents r gallon. And that's not all that', changed over the years. "We've been forced to be- come masters in the art of spot- ting camouflaged car hoot said Scotty, "and tha can take some looking on new models. "The old model cars used t( be simple tie hood latch was always on the front of the car. "Now they are all der the dashboard, on the dash- board, inside the glove com- (artment. "Chances are, with the con- tinual change of designs, car makers will surely find some other devious hiding place for that hood Scotty stayed with Pyramid Motors from 1929 through a change of business name to Home Motors Ltd. until the firm was destroyed in a 000 fire in 1963. He then went to work for his present employer College Mer- cury Ltd. formerly Smith Motors Ltd. location. Some of the original custom ers who bought gasoline from Scotty in 1929 still drop In to gas up and. have the oil check ed while exchanging greet ings with the man who's smile is as broad as his accent.

'According to Scotty, one of the greatest is meeting people and making Wends. In fact, if you ask him about retirement, you might get the answer you would expect from someone so friendly.

Architectural drafting and surveying courses have no en- rolment this semester and may be dropped, but commercial cooking and short order cooking have doubled their enrolments since fall, 1969. The 148 students in the school are divided among apprentice- ship programs engineer- ing technologies food ser- vices non-apprenticeship mechanical trades (17) and six to eight-week service courses (15 in welding so Mr. McPherson said the school's major concerns are en- rolment and student costs. "We expect to be able to in- crease the enrolment by con- centrating on informing the community of what is avail- he said. "In the past.our emphasis has been on technical excellence, which has been de- veloped to a sufficient enough level that we can divert more time and effort to promotion. "Growth for the school is un- limited; however, growth in any particular program is extreme- ly he said. "I don't think we can look forward to large enrolments in any of our specialty areas they're offered in a rather small geographic region." All LCC courses are offered with the provision that at least 10 students wish to take the course. However, in the case of figure is not rigidly followed, and in some technical vocational education programs lower enrolments are permitted in order to keep the program alive and to provide a public service. Mr. MePherson said an addl- tional complication for his school is the need to deal with and depend on co-operation from a number of outside agen- cies, including the colleges com- mission, the Alberta Apprentice- ship Board, and the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology. "Apparently they function in- dependently of one another and we are left to try to comprom ise on their requirements, many of which are Mr. HcPherson told the board. The result is that LCC has housands of square feet of space and hundreds of thou- sands of dollars worth of new trades equipment sitting idle be- cause of the agencies' lack of co-operation with the college. Dr. C. D. Stewart, LCC presi- dent, commented that he has been warring with the appren- ticeship board for two years. He said the board insists LCC cannot offer some apprentice- ship programs and cannot offer the third and fourth year" o) any of them, because of a lack of space, lack of personnel are lack of equipment Dr. Stewart said he has un- successfully insisted that the space exists, the personnel exist and the equipment exists. He added that hi a survey of LCC graduates last year, 100 students said they would have liked to be able to finish their apprenticeship courses at LCC instead of being forced to move after two years to SAIT. "I think that's one reason we don't get as high an enrolment in many of our programs as we should or could get we can't offer the full four year program so students decide to go to SAIT where they can take it all, instead of having to change in mid-stream." Some change may soon de- velop: Dr. Stewart is seeking a meeting among Education Min- ister Robert Clark, Labor Min- ister Raymond Reierson and other officials to discuss the entire technical vocational ed- ucation spectrum.

So our brewmaster, who loves his beer, selects his barley malts with the devoted care of a true connoisseur. Are they properly crisp yet tender? Have they the right, slightly mellow flavour? Our brewmaster won't take no for an answer. He won't com- promise on the ingredients that go into his beer, so you won't have to compromise on the flavour that pours out of every bottle of Calgary Export Lager. It's good. Always good.
