Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD Saturday, February 23, 1974 Industry needs more rapeseed separation By Herald Staff Writer CALGARY Industry has itself to' blame if it runs short of rapeseed suitable for processing for the domestic market, according to a federal agricultural official. Esmond Jarvis, assistant deputy minister for Agriculture Canada and chairman of the Canada Grains Group, said here Friday there definitely is a need for further steps to separate and keep separate rapeseed varieties which contain high and low amounts of erucic acid. The federal government declared Dec 1 that any rapeseed processed into Utilities officer not needed FOREMOST (Staff) The County of Forty Mile council Friday lost all interest in the provincial government grant of per annum to pay the salary and expenses of a county utility officer The county doesn't want a utilities officer. Councillors reached a consensus Friday (three were absent) that the position would entail no real work and provide no real benefit to county residents Council decided natural gas co-ops expanding or creating facilities are afforded the services of provincial inspectors anyway And they decided the utilities officer wouldn't fix or troubleshoot installations The grant would continue from year to year. edible oil products for use in Canada must be one of the Low Erucic Acid Rapeseed (LEAR) varieties. Studies have shown that erucic acid content has an affect on humans so the government limited the amount permissible in rapeseed products in Canada. Western Canadian Seed Processors Ltd. in Lethbridge announced last month it was importing soybeans from the United States to assure it could fulfill their domestic oilseed supply contracts. The company claimed when the government announced the shift to LEAR varieties, there wasn't enough of the right rapeseed available. Hugh Michael, president of Western Canadian Seed Processors, said because the government dragged its feet and announced the change late in the year, the industry had no time to safeguard the reparation of the two varieties. The high and low acid varieties had a chance to become mixed on the farm, in the delivery system, in the elevators and in the handling systems making large amounts unsuitable for domestic use. Because of the Time-saving paddle Paddling their own uh rowboat, two con- struction workers cross the Oldman River at the site of the 6th Avenue South bridge. If they went by land, it would be an eight-mile drive from one side of the river to the measure of the bridge's importance to the city. John McFarland, resident engineer for the consultant Stanley Associates, said today both bridge and road-work are ahead ol schedule. Three of five footings have been com- pleted, leaving two abutments and two footings to go Weed sprayer insufficient couldn't adapt. Mr. Jarvis disagreed, claiming government told industry about the shift early last spring. "Industry knew in lots of time." He said any further steps to keep the varieties separate should come from industry rather than more government action County considers fire engine fleet By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald District Editor FOREMOST When you buy a fire engine, buy the best, the County of Forty Mile council was advised Friday.

At the same time, cattle prices are falling because the public is more interested in eating grain than beef. He said cattle producers are in difficulty now because they can't get all the feed grams they want. There is lots of feed grains but the problem is getting it where it is needed When asked if he were concerned that United States, grain corn could be brough' into Southern Alberta cheaper than barley from north of Red Deer.

Phone 328-4095 2214 Ht. 327-5116 The best costs from to Don Graham of Calgary and Tom Makey of Red Deer, both of the fire commissioner's office, advised the council. A expenditure will add two millls to the county tax rate, municipal committee chairman Coun. William Kenneth Babe said. The county wants to station fire trucks in several main centres. Council was advised by the firefighting experts not to try to fight fires with makeshift equipment. Some councillors expressed the view earlier that smaller, home built tank trucks would be effective in fighting fires and cost county ratepayers about half the cost of insurance underwriter endorsed units. It's anybody's guess how many fire trucks will finally be purchased. And the county council won't take any action until after ratepayers have a chance to express their views at the annual meeting scheduled to be held at 1 p m. March 4 at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall at Bow Island After the presentation by Mr. Graham, Coun. Ed Torsher of Bow Island said, "It is no longer a nebulous adding council now has definite facts and figures to go on. Coun. Babe said, "This is one of the things we were afraid of you have to get something they (the fire commissioner's office) will approve of and it will be HBMTZ HUNTERS STATIONERS 324-9thSLS Phone 328-1778 FOR VOUft COMPLETE WEDDING REQUIREMENTS InvrUrtloiw MtuouttGBMHHf (24 Hour H We provide complimentary personalized head table place cards with each order1 PACE CUSTOMER PARKING FUEL SAVINGI nO nn K in iwi connoraDM 411 provided the huiitkJffy Have a POWER CHARLTON 6 HILL LTD.

Coun Lyle Nattrass of Manyberries said, '-'We don't want anything less." The firefighting experts said they will help council write the specifications if council decides to proceed. Mr. Graham noted they are also in the business of training firefighters. Reeve Dan Vanden Berg said the best program would cost between five and six mills. "But over five years it would be IVz said Coun. Torsher. Mr. Graham said the fire apparatus has a life expectancy of from 15 to 20 years. "If you look over the life span of the thing it's pretty darn he said. Mr. Graham told the councillors the County of Forty Mile is one of the last in Southern Alberta to approach the subject. "Most rural areas in Alberta have farm protection of some sort or he said. Coun Babe inquired if there are any regulations as to the type of vehicles the county should consider and Mr. Graham said there are none. "We recommend that you go for underwriter approved apparatus which costs you another for a fellow from Winnipeg to come out and test the equipment. We are not a sales group at all. we simply put our ideas forth. If you follow our ideas, we back you up. If you don't, we back off like a hot potato." Coun. Babe wondered if the fire commissioner's office liked the idea of the county fighting fires with a weed spraying truck. "No." said Mr. Graham, "Mainly because if you try to alter the weed sprayer to work as a fire truck you haven't got a good weed sprayer anymore. You haven't got the volume and pressure to make a decent sized apparatus." Mr. Graham suggested the county get at least two pieces of equipment, preferably three, to get instant response in any given area of the county "so the thing is going to do some good when it does get there." The other units would back up the threatened area. Coun. Babe said a major problem is that the availability of water is limited in most county areas so the unit would have to take water along. He recommended a 750 to gallon tank that pumps out in IVz minutes pumping at 625 gallons per minute. Coun. Torsher suggested, "Ideally, one truck at Bow Island for divisions six, seven and nine; one at Foremost for divisions four and five; and one at Manyberries for divisions two, three and eight or something like that." Mr. Graham said most counties and MDs have an agreement with the villages "if you look after it, man it, you can have the use of it when you need it." He favored volunteers. Regarding financing, Coun. Babe learned by questioning Mr. Graham that there are no grants available for fire trucks. BERGMAN'S FLOOR COVERINGS end fit Phone 328-0372 2718 12th Ave. S.
