18 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wednesday, February 14, 1973---- Protein grading benefits eluding grain producers MILK RIVER (Staff) -Protein grading for grains has been termed one of Canada's best saJes tools. The vice-president of the Pal-liser Wheat Growers' Association says that since protein grading was implemented., shipments of high protein gram have brought bonus prices. "There is an incentive for high protein grain and the buyers are paying for it," Art Thompson says. Addressing a farmer meeting here Tuesday, Mr. Thompson said the incentive is being paid but it is not being reflected back to the producer. For years Canada was gathering all types of all grains and mixing the high protein with the low protein grains to sell a generally good quality grain. As Canada's share of the export market diminished, other countries were filling the gap with protein graded shipments. This was allowing the customers to be assured that the grain they were buying would be of uniform quality, especially for use in the milling industry. 35 candidates enrolled in real estate course A real estate course, prerequisite for new realtors, is being held at the Lethbridge Real Estate Board office. The three-week course started Monday and will last until March 2, when examinations are to be held, a spokesman said. Thirty-five candidates are enrolled. A person who wants to enter the real estate business in Lethbridge must take the course and pass the examinations. The course is being conduct- ed by the board on behalf of its 37 agency members who are looking for new people. Such courses are held two, three or four times a year when there are a minimum of 12 applicants who want to enter the real estate business, the spokesman said. Candidates failing to pass the examinations must attend the next course and sit for new examinations before they will be accepted by employers. Mr. Thompson said it was Palliser which persuaded the federal government to institute protein grading. The government is uow working on a program which will grade grain at specific points so the farm-el's who grow the high protein grain can benefit from the incentive prices. He told about 15 farmers that they grow the best grain in Canada. The 40-year average for grain grown in Southern Alberta is 14.52 per cent and today buyers are paying up to six cents a bushel incentive for grain graded in that range, he said. "For years you sold grain of this high protein quality and never got s ruddy cent for it," he said. "Don't go and figure out how much money you lost in those years, because you can't get it back."

Post Office explains RCMP stamp decision The Canada Post Office will issue its three-stamp series commemorating the RCMP centennial next month, it has been announced by Postmaster General Andre Ouellet. The series will include 24 million stamps in 8-cent denominations, 12 million stamps in 10-cent denominations and 12 million stamps In 15-cent denominations. The 8-cent stamp is to mark the North West Mounted Police's trek across the western frontier in 1874, he said. The NWMP later merged with the Dominion Police to form the RCMP. The 8-cent stamp has the Overture concert Monday The third concert in the 1972-73 Overture Concert series will be staged at the Yates Centre Monday featuring the production the Vienna Nights. The ensemble includes soprano Marion Studholme of Liverpool, tenor Louis Browne of Athlone, Ireland, baritone Brian Kemp of Aberdeen, Scotland, and pianist Jennifer Partridge of Surrey, England. The program of Vienna Nights will include excerpts from popular hits as Die Fled-ermaus, The Merry Widow, The Gypsy Baron, Pagatnini, The Lands of Smiles and A Waltz Dream. The concert will start at 8:30 p.m. Admission is open to those who have purchased the season tickets. words "NWMP - March West -Commissioner G. A. French - Fort Dufferin - Cypress Hills - Fort Whoop-Up - Fort Macleod," Jen O'Shaughnessy of the Canada Post's postage division in Ottawa says. The other two stamps, in 10-cent and 15-denominations, will feature the spectograph, an identification device used by the RCMP in its crime detection laboratories, and the Musical Ride respectively. But the Lethbringe Philatelic Society is not happy with the series, to be issued March 9. J. H. Carpenter, the society's president, called it a political decision weighed in Eastern Canada's favor. "Our request to issue a two-stamp series of the NWMP's arrival at Fori Whoop Up and Fort Macleod in 1874 has been rejected," 'he said. "The 3-cent stamp is not celebrating the RCMP's 100th anniversary of coming to the West, only the 99th, which is ridiculous." Murray McBride, executive assistant to Mr. Ouellet, said it was difficult to make everybody happy because "from a list of 30 designs submitted from coast to coast the postmaster general had to choose three." Mr. O'Shaughnessy said "it depends on how you look at it. We know that 1973 is the RCMP's centennial but the NWMP did not arrive in Alberta until 1874," he said. He said the Lethbridge request is still under consideration but added, "it is not very high on the priority list," explaining that "it should be several years apart to issue stamps commemorating the same subject." Mr. Carpenter, however, is not giving up. He said he has written Lethbridge MP Ken Hurlburt and federal Conservative leader Bob Stanfield and both promised the matter would be looked into. Don Getty, Alberta's minister of federal and inter-governmental affairs, has called the p o s tmaster general's decision unfair. "We will keep on lobbying," Mr. Carpenter said. BILL. GROENEN photos Eye to eye Nearly $300 was received Tuesday for the Alberta Heart Foundation and the Lethbridge Collegiate band from a special concert of the Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry military band of Calgary.

Annual hose competition scheduled for Feb. 24 Drive-in thief remanded An 18-year-old Calgary man was remanded Tuesday to Feb. 21 for sentencing after he pleaded guilty to a charge of break, enter, and theft. Terry Dale Warr broke into the A and W on Scenic Drive Sunday night and stole $63 from a cigarette machine. He will remain in custody until his next court appearance, The fifth annual hose coup-1 ling competition, sponsored by! the Lethbridge Fire Department, has been scheduled for Feb. 24. Doug Kometz, the city's fire inspector, expects that 30 four-men teams from fire departments in Alberta, the U.S., and B.C., will compete for the Lethbridge Hotel trophy. The contest is a speed drill based on the length of time required for a teem to couple three lengths of hose and knock down a target, and then replace the middle section of hose and knock down another target. The record time for the exercise is 16 seconds. If the competition receives sanction from the provincial fire inspector, as Mr. Kometz expects it will, the winning team will be eligible to compete in a provincial championship. A team from the Lethbridge fire department currently holds that title. As an added attraction, teams from The Herald and CJOC Radio will compete for the Cracked Helmet Award, in what some observers have described as a "watered down version of the main event."
