The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHMMOOI HERALD-15 Prairie sunset The long, lonely prairie horizon is broken by a house and farm buildings. The descending sun lights up the graceful Chinook arch. It's sunset as viewed from east of Fort Macleod. The light in the window is symbolic of high hopes for 1974. Forty-Mile briefs County awaits gov't okay of new wild oats programs FOREMOST (Staff) Vernon Arnold, agricultural fieldman for the County of Forty-Mile, says his board has formulated a wild oats program for the county but it still awaits government approval. The provincial government has set aside million for a wild oats program this year. Part of the program in the County of Forty-Mile could be issuance of certificates to farmers who are buying chemical to fight wild oats. It is expected the program will cost the County of Forty- Mile about Mr. Arnold says the govern- ment is allowing each agricultural service board throughout- the -province to come up with its own program. Reporting to the county council on the government's emergency assistance program for the movement of hay feed, Mr. Arnold said a rancher could receive a ton if he moves it 275 miles. The rate is six cents a ton per mile with the first 25 miles deducted. "We are anticipating quite a few said Mr. Arnold The program is retroactive to July 1. The agriculture committee of the County of Forty-Mile paved the way for this service by passing a resolution to re- quest that the County of Forty-Mile be included as an area to be eligible for feed hauling assistance. This means that fanners, ranchers and feedlot operators who have not sold forage after April and who have found it necessary tc move hay, straw, pellets, cubes and fodder since July 1, 1973, are now eligible for haul- ing assistance based on the six cents per ton per mile one way. Maximum assistance is a ton with no assistance on the first 25 miles hauled. Movement of feed grains is not covered by this policy and therefore no assistance is available for feed grain hauling. Applications for assistance can be made immediately at the department of agriculture office at Foremost. They will also be available at the SMRID office at Bow Island most Thursday after- noons from the district agriculturist. Persons wishing to apply for assistance must bring a copy of a receipted invoice and a way bill or other means of determining weight of their loads, to cover their purchases at the time of mak- ing application. Deadline -for making application for this assistance is March 31, 1974. It is also urged that people who are seeking or selling forage make use of the service provided by the Alberta Feed and Forage Exchange operated by tee Alberta Grain Commission. There are no costs. The exchange takes no part in pricing but lists both potential buyers and sellers. Phone Medicine Hat 527-7555; or Lethbridge, 328-7721. The-county is going out of the Reuline and Meguvon business, chemicals sold at cost to ranchers fighting warbles in their cattle. The county is selling Reuline at a can to clean up its present stock. Costs are down on the chemicals, said Mr. Arnold, and regular business channels should be able to supply farmers. JVo tickets yet under new law FORT MACLEOD (Staff) RCMP are treadtag softly with the town's new parking bylaw and very few parking tickets are likely to be issued until the general public is fully aware parking is being regulated here. RCMP said yesterday, the second day of the new regulations, that no parking tickets have yet been issued. RCMP here said Fort Macleod citizens will be broken in gently. "It's a matter of enforcing said a local member of the RCMP, intimating there are infractions but the motorists are not being ticketed.

No contracts for sale of the coal have been negotiated yet but exploration has been un- der way at the site for the past three years, almost con- tinuously. Exploration is needed to es- tablish mineability, method of mining and the amount of reserves. The Japanese market is be- ing- eyed. Preliminary talks have been held with represen- tatives of Japanese firms. One of the problems to be overcome is shipping the coal from the property to the dearest rail line running through Fernie, already carrying unit coal trains to Roberts Bank Access by road to the property is via the Lodge pole Road from Morrissey.
