Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 7, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, February 7, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 Population curb 'vital' Population control is vital to curb a losing battle in the fight to feed the world, Mayor Andy Anderson told the 50th annual meeting of the Alberta Sugar Beet Growers Associa- tion Wednesday. He said .the World Food Bank required Jl billion in 1972 for its programs. And with a 39 per cent increase in agricultural production in developing countries predicted by 1980, 1.4 billion more people in the same period will nulify those production gains. "Population controls are needed." On the local scene, Mayor mayor Anderson cited sugar beets as a stabilizing factor in agriculture in Southern Alber- ta. He said he would like to see agriculture product prices re- main at the present high prices for the benefit of producers. For too long, farmers have had to live with a price structure which has limited the viability of their industry. He said present high food prices are relative. The public has been able to buy food much too cheaply for many years and now they are com- plaining.

He's hoping for .a 10-pound rainbow trout. The lake was stocked by the Tyrrell Lake Fishermen's Association in 1971. Last May the province put fingerlings into the popular fishing spot. About 40 cars were on the lake one day recently., Provincial government intervention in industry Wednesday was scathed by the president of the Manitoba Sugar Beet Growers Association. Bill Ronald of Portage La Prairie told 100 delegates to the 50th annual meeting of the Alberta Sugar Beet Growers Association they are lucky to have only public opinion to fight to defend higher prices for their product. He cited the trials in his province which began when Some rural students get 100-mile bus rides By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer The death of small rural schools is forcing some students to ride a bus as far as 100 miles a day in the County of Vulcan. Parents concerned with the threat of further school closures feel there should be laws limiting the number of. miles students must travel to obtain an education since there are laws requiring them to attend school. A parent at Milo, 30 miles northeast of Vulcan, said in an interview Wednesday that high, school students are travelling up to miles a month in a school bus while commuting the Vulcan High School.

Mr. Ronald said his associa- tion was put in an embarass- ing situation because it was trying to stay clear of the con- sumer battle against high sugar prices. The association had no control over the prices being established by a world shortage of sugar, he said. But when the Manitoba government assured the public it would only be a prices became very vocal." Producer returns are based on ;jj the wholesale price of sugar. the smaller rural schools. Carolyn Scott said the situa- tion would become even more frightening should more grades be eliminated from the smaller schools. She questioned the validity of forcing young children to spend more than 10 hours a Study to examine offiCC Changes to allow farmers a fair share of the national in- come are now before the federal -government, ac- cording to Eric Pook, secretary manager of the Agricultural Prices and Stabilization Board. Speaking to the noon luncheon of the 50th annual meeting of the Alberta Sugar Beet Growers Association, Mr. Pook said the changes are being made in the Agricultural Stabilization Act to meet the changing con- uitions on farms across the country. He declined to say when the struck. Whenever the com- modity price dropped below the set figure on the open market, government would make up the difference from the public treasury. An annual fund of million was established to cover the mandatory com- modities as well as 28 other commodities which require only sporadic help. Sugar beets fall under the latter category and have re- quired federal price support only once in the past 15 years. Since the act was brought into force, the sugar beet industry has received a direct payment He said the government had determined that producers were making too much money from their product. To arrive at this decision, the govern- ment had calculated incomes on higher than average production returns while us- ing 1972 production cost figures to determine ex- penses, he said. Following a press conference at the Manitoba legislature, the government announced plans to get out of the sugar marketing scheme when the facts were made clear. DON'T WAIT...

The department of educa- tion has a special small school assistance grant to assist some rural schools with multi grade However, Mrs. Scott said the grant does not meet the need of small rural schools in the county of Vulcan because most of them don't qualify for it for one reason or another. Only the Hutterite school in the Vulcan county currently qualifies for the special grant, she'said. EXPRESSED CONCERN The parents also expressed concern in the brief that teachers are not being ade- quately trained to teach in a multi grade elementary classroom, which is on the increase because of declining school populations. They suggested special grants be provided the univer- sities to encourage the offer- ing of courses to teachers on the operation Of a rural multi grade classroom. Bursaries should also be established to encourage experienced teachers to take such a course. In addition, the brief recommended that some of a- student teacher's practical training be spent in a multi grade classroom and salary incentives be established to encourage teachers to accept positions in multi grade classrooms.
