Fish, game group seeks wildlife patrol By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer Holding two controversial resolutions concerning treaty Indian hunting and fishing rights and implementation of a firearm user's permit until today, the Alberta Fish and Game Association Friday decided to seek a civilian wildlife patrol. Delegates tQ,th.e group's 44th annual meeting in Lethbridge decided to wait for provincial lands and forests minister Allan Warrack to discuss the two most crucial resolutions on the floor of the convention. Dr. Warrack was to be the pre-din-ner speaker today. The association will now take steps to establish a civilian wildlife patrol chairman and a vice chairman from the six zones throughout Alberta. The committee will work in close liaison with the fish and wildlife division of the department of lands and forests to prepare and present a civilian wildlife program to all af- MOVING? OWEN AGENTS FOR ALLIED VAN LINES filiated fish' and game clubs, farm organizations or other interested groups. The idea behind the patrol is to assist the suppression of all acts of firearm vandalism and hunting offences. Consensus has shown that wildlife enforcement officers need assistance to properly uphold the various acts pertaining to wildlife. It was also felt that passage of such a resolution would improve the image of hunters and hunting as a sport in the eyes of the general public. The resolution sparked considerable debate with some members, particularly members of various police forces, opposed. One police officer said untrained persons trying to suppress wildlife offences can get into more trouble than the person breaking the law. One proponent relieved some fears when he suggested the patrol members would be trained to report wildlife offences to the nearest peace officer or game warden. He would be trained to detect details needed in court cases to assist in the conviction of the offenders. President Tom O'Keefe swayed the vote with a sharp response, claiming he was surprised the resolution would get opposition from police. "We want to project an image so wo can go to the public and tell them we aren't lawbreakers. "The patrolmen will be trained to be observers and they don't have to be fish and game members." In other matters which came to a vote Friday, the associa* tion decided to seek a minimum of five cents deposit on all beverage containers. The argument in favor of the resolution claimed a two-cent deposit has been in effect for 40 years but now two cents of buying power is equivalent to five cents. The association felt the higher deposit would help ensure the return of a greater percentage of beverage bottles. An amendment which would have sought the standardization of all beverage bottles was Limited season defeated in committee. The association also will ask the provincial government to designate the fourth' Saturday of September as Alberta Hunting and Fishing Day. The day would honor "some unsung heros in the fight to save our environment - the army of Alberta hunters and fishermen." The association will also seek to have all vehicles barred from travelling in all streams except for the sole purpose of crossing the stream. Members were told vehicles disturb the delicate bottoms of the shallow streams, destroying tihe spawning grounds of many fish species. The convention wiU continue today with resolutions ranging from non-resident alien hunting rights to policy statements on feed lots and national parks. Does could be fair game Provincial hunters could be shooting female deer on a limited scale by 1974 if present population growth conditions are maintained. Gordon Kerr, provincial fish and wildlife director, told the Southern Alberta Zone One clubs at the Alberta Fish and Game Association annual meeting Friday there could be a limited doe season in the next couple of years. He projected that the season would include a permit type of hunt with a given number of CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LABI MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.

He said a five-man team, two from fisheries and three from wildlife, has been formed to study habitat problems throughout the province. He said the team will begin to work with a series of five-year programs started in 1972. The division will also try to improve administration to do things more quickly, he said. Another major area of concern to the division is development of better enforcement of laws affecting wildlife. The provincial hunter training program has been developed under another five year program.

Pointing to some highlights of 1972, Mr. Kerr said hunting violations were down from 1971 levels. "This was a switch in a 10-year trend," he said. He said during 1972, illegal possession of game became the number one problem, succeeding the offence of carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle. There was a good number of charges laid against people who were hunting at night with lights, he said. He told the convention a plane was used for enforcement work for the first time in 1972 and this would continue. In the realm of fishing, 50 per cent of the violations in 1972 were for persons not having a valid fishing licence. Consul-general here March 16 Japan's land development policies and legal system will be two of the topics discussed when the Japanese consul-general visits the University of Lethbridge March 16. Shuji Shigihara, whose office is in Edmonton, will be the guest speaker at two public lectures to be held on the U of L campus. Mr. Shigihara was born in Tokyo in 1914. He has been in the Japanese ministry of foreign affairs since 1938, serving as consulate-general of Japan in China, Pakistan, Denmark and India. He has been with the Japanese consulate in Edmonton since 1971. permits issued for the various areas. Part of the decision will rely on deer population densities and available food supplies, he said. He told one questioner that there hasn't been any public pressure to institute a doe season yet. A member of the Pincher Creek Fish and Game Association said plenty of pressure will soon be exerted by ranchers in the Pincher Creek - Crowsnest Pass region. The growing,doe population is thought responsible for rancher's problems with the loss of forage and hay stocks, he said. George Minor, a member of the Magrath Fish and Game Association, told the zone meeting such. a season would result in a "lot of gate locking in Southern Alberta." He said many farmers in the Magraith-Del Bonita region are against the killing of female deer and would like to see a closed season on everything, including deer and pheasants. "If it weren't for the M?-Intyre Ranch, there wouldn't be anything in the area," he said. "It is ridiculous how animals are slaughtered and left on the ground. "But it's hard to catch a skunk." City's books show $1 million surplus The city ended 1972 with an operating surplus of more than $1 million. That information is contained in the year-end financial statement included on the agenda for Monday's city council imjeeting. Although city officials would not elaborate on the financial statement, Mayor Andy Anderson called the $1,163,700 surplus "fabulous." Mayor Anderson said the surplus will be announced at the meeting, then explained at a press conference Tuesday morning. Council will also consider approving a contract for the present pound keeper to continue at the job through 1973-74 for $32,913. City manager Tom Nutting recommended Glen Anderson's bid over four others which ranged from $24,000 to $40,000. The contract includes a $1 bonus for each dog captured by the pound keeper. In a letter to council, Mr, Nutting said, "It is our intention to utilize this incentive ($1 per dog caught) for all of 1973 but to drop the incentive in 1974 as being unnecessary." At the last regular council meeting, Mr. Nutting was asked to comment on Herald reports that the $1 incentive was included in the tenders for a pound keeper. During that meeting, when he was asked is the $1 bonus being offered" Mr. Nutting replied, "Not to my knowledge." He then added, "The ability of The Lethbridge Herald to understand what the administration is saying in the past week has diminished to a new low. What we should do is have a conference to re-analyze the use of certain English terms." The incentive is being offered, Mr. Nutting said in his letter this week, "for keeping the city clear of stray and unlicensed dogs." On other business, Mr. Nutting recommends council consider informing the federal public works department of what the city feels is the best approach to providing a new federal building and post office. The two recommended alternatives are: demolition of the existing structure and replacement with a combined government-commercial tower; relocation of the post office to property in either the first or second phase of the down town redevelopment area, generally west of 5th St. S. "It is my understanding that the structure must be replaced as the current building cannot economically be renovated at lesser cost than constructing new facilities," Mr. Nutting said. Other agenda items include: Immediate adoption of a landlord and tenant advisory board and the appointment of board members. A recommendation that $180,000 be allocated for a major addition to city hall for office space, rather than renting office space for the community services department u was previously recommended by the administration. Consideration of the appropriate schedule for getting the Canada Games Sportsplex underway by May 1. A notice of motion by Aid.

The hearing will be one of the series held throughout the province - and the country - to collect public opinion on the proposed readjustment. Calgary will gain two federal seats and Edmonton one if the proposals are accepted by Parliament. The province's total Commons membership would remain unchanged at 19. The commission of electoral boundaries aimed for ridings with an average population of 85,678. It said 11 constituencies were within six per cent of Hie Library bids to get council consideration One of eight firms which bid on construction of the new library could be chosen by city council Monday. The amount of the tenders has not been disclosed but indications are that the low bid is less than the architect's estimate of $925,000. Mayor Andy Anderson said the low bid need not necessarily be the one accepted. The library, which will be constructed on the old Central School property at 5th Ave. and 9th St. S., will take about one year to finish, once construction has started. The two-storey building will contain about 29,000 square feet in floor area of which about 27,-000 feet will be used for book stacks and reading areas.

The Lethbridge riding will have 96,900 residents if the readjustment becomes law. Changes in Southern Alberta ridings are extensive. Rocky Mountain, the long and narrow mountain constituency that now runs from north of Jasper south to the United States border, has been split into four parts. The norther section joins Wetaskiwin to become Wetas-kiwin - Yellow Head; a central section becomes part of Red Deer constituency; the Banff area becomes part of the new Banff - Drumhellor riding; and the Waterton section close to the U.S. border becomes part of Lethbridge. The Crowfoot seat south of Calgary also disappears under the proposed readjustment. It would be shared among a lengthened Medicine Hat riding on the southeast, Banff - Drumr hellor, which surrounds Calgary, on the west, and Red Deer to the northwest. The enlarged Lethbridge riding lies south cf the northern boundary of township 15 and west of the east boundary of range 19, west of the fourth meridian.
