While residents of most of the rest of the country are suffering through the bitter winter months, George Faulkner, left, and 77-year-old Jack Stacey, right, have been out on the city's fairways. They say with a bit of experience the wind hardly matters at all. And since in Vancouver Canada's only other tropical city it rains when it doesn't snow, the winter breezes on dry Lethbridge fairways are pretty much acceptable to the ardent 19-holer. _ Imports blamed for decline Sheep business had big days in south By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Agriculture Writer The Alberta sheep man must realize he is in the same posi- tion as the major hat manufac- turer who recently closed his factories. There is little de- mand for Ills product, says Carl AndersCT, Brooks. HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION 909 3rd Ave. S. Ph. 327-5454 Mr. Anderson started raising sheep in 1923, and from 1932 to 1969 he marketed head for Bow Slope Shipping As- sociation. He sold Ms own flock in 1960. He said during the 1930s farmers in the developing irri- gated areas of southern Alber- ta had plenty of surplus hay, oats and barley, and discover- ed lamb feeding was a good way to market this feed. Consequently, a large lamb feeding enterprise opened up in the south and until about 1955, to head of lambs HALF PRICE FUR SALE CANADIAN FURRIERS' FINAL CLEARANCE OF QUALITY FURS AT FANTASTIC REDUCTIONS Beaver Coatij Mink Gill Muskrat Jackets (Dyed Persian Lamb Paw Jacket (Dyed Russian Kolinsky Wolf Fun Fur Coats Muskrat Coats I (Dyed) BUDGET TERMS MAY BE ARRANGED Leather Coats Fur lined in Red Fox, Opossum, Mouton lamb (dyed processed lamb) and Rabbit.

Many farmers developed their own flocks, running any- where from 100 to head of sheep, said Mr. Anderson. A-gradual change began to occur in the late 1940s, when ntore sheepmen expanded their interests into the cattle feeding business. "Range costs increased, wool mafkets declined and sheep herders began dying off." Chilled beef shipped today to Japan The second shipment of chill- ed beef exported by Canada to Japan left Lethbridge today. The shipment was processed by Canada Packers Ltd. and consists of 34 carcasses weigh- ing about pounds. It is a follow up to a pound shipment made by Canada Packers Ltd. at Calgary about two months ago. The specially chosen meat was shipped in a refrig- erated rail unit, 40 feet long and weighing pounds. It will arrive in Vancouver about Friday and after a short stop- over will continue on to Japan, arriving early in March.

Phone 327-1515 Mr. Anderson said raising sheep used to be an investment which paid off faster than a similar investment in beef, but that disparity disappeared in the 1950s. Another reason for the rapid decline of sheep numbers in the early 50s says Mr. Ander- son, was that Canadian meat packers began accepting frozen or chilled lamb from New Zealand. At that time the minimum price the Alberta feeder could afford to sell at was per head. So if the Alberta packers bought these lambs, paid 50 cents freight and labor costs for killing, his cost would be "Since wool was cheap and there was no demand for glands, and intestines were re- placed by plastic for sausages and wieners, it was doubtful whether all the byproducts would return "This meant the packers were paying on the average 43 cents a pound for a 46-pound carcass. He could get the New Zealand imports for 26 cents per said Mr. Anderson. Many farmers became dis- couraged with lamb feeding and turned to beef, and many of the remaining flocks were sold.

Major changes made in scout organization By HERB JOHNSON' Herald Siaff Writer A major administrative change aimed at increased ef- ficiency has been announced for the Boy Scout organization in Lethbridge. Officers of the Lethbridge District have resigned en masse, relinquishing their ad- ministrative duties to the Southern Alberta Regional Council. The move is intended to eliminate duplication of ef- forts between the District and the Regional Council and to free former District officers for other work. A letter has been sent to Robert Low, president of the Southern Alberta Regional Council, containing the resigna- tions of J. C. Montgomery, president; Robert Baines, vice- president; Norm Metz, com- missioner; Ralph Tennant, vice-president; Heikki Ojala. treasurer and W. T. Galloway', assistant district commissioner and acting commissioner. The change, worked out in consultation between the Dis- trict and the Region, will in- clude passing administration of the Boy Scout building in Leth- bridge to the Region. The build- ing is by the Boy Scouts of Canada. Service to orgam'2ations sponsoring Boy Scout programs in Lethbridge will also be op- erated by the Region. The re- signations of the District offi- cers will free these persons to spend more time in servicing work. They will remain within the Scout organization, only the titles and nature of their work will be 'altered. Service work Includes direct personal contact with program section Scouters to organize programs for tie Scouts, bring- ing together small groups for training in particular areas and working with sponsor and group committees to help them understand the purpose of Scout- ing and providing guidance in administering the programs. Bill Galloway has been ap- pointed service team co-ordi- nator for training. Further ap- pointments are expected to be made soon. Because the regional council offices were located in Leth- bridge, some duplication of ef- fort has occured in the past in administration. All administra- tion in the city will now be GERALD C.
