The trail is in the same general area as a previous trail closed earlier this year in a program designed to control the use of snow vehicles in the park and reduce conflicts with other park visitors, the spokesman said. The opening of the Bow-Hector Lakes trail brings to six the number of such trails in the 2,560-square-mile park. Under the new regulations, users of this trail must pre-register. Registration can be carried out at the east gate of the park, the Banff fireball or the administration building. There is no charge for registra tion, but those who fail to com' ply with the regulation will be prosecuted, the spokesman said.

Zenmac -- Monday, January 4, IW1 - THI IETHBRIDOI HERALD - IS Hail corporation to adjust crop insurance coverages CALGARY (CP) - The Alberta Hail and Crop Insurance Corporation announced here that it will adjust crop insurance coverages in 1971 because it is evident that some farmers or some areas are consistently supporting other areas. The corporation said the adjustment is an alternative to an over - all increase in premium rates which otherwise would be necessary next year in many areas. Coverage will be related more closely to the actual risk of an individual farmer. "Farmers who are less prone to losses cannot be expected to carry farmers with a record of frequent loses, whether due to unsatisfactory farming practices or a particular risk on their farm or in their area," the corporation said in a news release. Since the Inception of crop insurance in Alberta in 1965 indemnities had exceeded premium income by a small margin. But when the federal share was excluded losses were about one-third greater than the premiums paid by fanners. Indemnities paid in 1970 were heavier than anticipated but substantially less than in the last two years when losses exceeded premiums income by a wide margin. Loss payments in 1970 were $1.6 million compared with premium billings of $2,-047,000. About 50 fanners were unable to complete harvest this fall, largely due to wet conditions in small local areas, and their claims cannot be settled until next spring. As in the last three years, the heaviest loses were incurred in the north-central and Peace River areas. In 1971, a policyholder who has received a loss payment in three of the last six years will have his coverage reduced. The reduction will be 10 per cent for policyholders who have received $1 to $3 in loss payments for each dollar of premium paid, 20 per cent for those who received $3.01 to $6 in loss payments and 30 per cent for those who received mora than $6. The corporation said it hopes that in the future a plan can be developed to further recognize policyholders with a long record of no losses. Loss - fre� farmers nw qualify for a discount of from 20 to 25 per cent. Basic premium and coverages rates will remain unchanged with the exception of the Vulcan - Warner area where there will be an increase for most crops and soil types.

Carlson, president of Kaiser Resources, announced here. Kaiser Resources announced last month that it planned a $1 million modification program for its coal-preparation plant near Sparwood, B.C., to overcome plant limitations. Thursday's statement said the financing agreement with Mitsubishi will provide money for the Sparwood improvement program "and other necessary capital programs." Mr. Carlson said the agreement will also assist in providing working capital "required to bring coal mining and shipping operations to contractural rates." The agreement calls for the Grain price review money to be payed back as coal tonnages are shipped on and after July 1, 1972, and through mid-1977. Kaiser Resources has contracts with Mitsubishi for the sale of more than 75 million tons of coal after a 15-year period calling for shipments at the rate of five million tons annually. The Sparwood modification program includes provision of improved coal drying and coal cleaning facilities. Mr. Carlson said the new financing agreement will aid greater utilization of Canadian coal in Japan and other world markets. New York stocks Supplied by Richardson.

Financier wants to spend $1 million on parks work VANCOUVER (CP) - Financier Ernest Warner announced here he will give $1 million "be- Harry Hargrave finds markets EDMONTON (CP) - When he should probably be sitting back enjoying a well-earned rest, Harry Hargrave now is busier than ever selling Alberta agricultural products in Pacific rim countries. Mr. Hargrave, appointed last July as Alberta's marketing commissioner, was born 61 years ago in cattle ranching country near Walsh, Alta., and has been in agriculture throughout his working career. He has just returned from Japan and Korea where he investigated potential markets for Alberta products. He now is busy telling Alberta producers about the markets he uncovered and is trying to ensure that bis discussions during the three-week trip are followed up. Mr. Hargrave worked with The Canada agriculture department and. between 1934 and 1959 he was a livestock administrator and researcher. Jn 1959, he went to Reginn as chief of community pastures and water development programs with the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration. OPPORTUNITIES OPEN Then along came the marketing commissioner's job and he has been on the hop ever since. During bis Asian tour he found potential markets for beef and pork products, honey, potato chips, frozen corn, peas, beans, dehydrated and sun-cured alfalfa pellets, barley, rapeseed, flax and livestock. In 1969, Japan purchased more than $3 million worth of pork from Canada and "this is expected to be considerably higher for 1970 and again for 1571 ,** Mr. Hargrave said. Boneless pork loins, after mild processing, are extensively used in Japanese'hotels and restaurants. "Japan also offers an attractive market for Alberta's choice quality, highly finished grain-fed chilled beef." The Japanese also are interested in Alberta honey in substantial volume "at a price that would be acceptable to our producers." The interest has been spurred by a reduction in honey imports from China and because domestic Japanese production lias declined more than 50 per cent in the last 10 years, due to pollution and industrial expansion. Two hundred tons of Alberta honey were bought by Japan in November, the first such shipment from Alberta to Japan. Prospects for Korea also were promising, but there were snags because a United States law required Korea to buy its feed and other commodity requirements from the U.S. Since the law may be gradually withdrawn, Mr. Har-graves said Korean officials suggested a pilot project to allow them to try Canadian barley to replace U.S. corn in large commercial feedmills. Korea has imported Canadian Holsteins in recent years and is "well satisfied with them," Mr. Hargrave said. They now plan on importing 3,000 to 3,500 Holstein dairy heifers and cows annually for the next five years and would like Canada to be successful when tenders are called. During his trip, Mr. Hargrave received "invaluable help" from the federal trade department. While in Tokyo he went to a department store which displayed and promoted Canadian products, most of them agricultural. An in-store promotion of Alberta beef featured Japanese waitresses dressed in western cow-girl outfits serving special dishes which includes hot-cakes and bacon with Alberta honey and Quebec maple syrup. "This is the only way wa can promote Alberta products and arouse the interest of the Japanese consumer in what we have to sell," be said. Alberta, acknowledging the potential of the Japanese market, recently opened a trade office in Tokyo. Alberta Native Society given govt, grant OTTAWA (CP) - The secretary of state's office today announced approval of a $139,012 grant to the Alberta Native Communications Society. The society broadcasts in the Cree language over radio stations in Camrose, Edmonton, Peace River and Grande Prairie, reaching 60,000 Indians in Alberta, northern British Columbia and northern Saskatchewan. It also produces a publication, The Native People.

"There are only two things to do with money - spend it or give it away," the 68-year-old millionaire said in an interview. "There's nothing nicer." Mr. Warner made the rounds of his favorite charities hero handing out cheques totalling $6,000 to five organizations. "Before I go to heaven I plan to leave a million for the development of parks in Vancouver and Victoria," he said. "Parks are for everybody - the poor, the rich, the dogs, the kids, the elderly. I think parks are the greatest contribution anybody can make to a city." Mr. Warner is a director of Growers Wine Co. and owner of a number of large firms, including Harbour Ferries Ltd and Melograin Milling. Negro hijacker: 4Im free, I'm free! after 400 years MIAMI, Fla. (AP) - One of two Negro men who hijacked a National Airlines jet to Cuba Sunday looked out at Havana and cried: "I'm free! I'm free! After 400 years, I'm free!" The men, their wives and four children were among 85 people on the DC-8 that was preparing to land at Tampa on a flight from Los Angeles to Miami when one of the hijackers forced his way into the cockpit with a pistol aimed at the head of a stewardess. Dorothy Amato was only on her third flight when the hijacker pulled a gun from under a blanket, grabbed her by the arm and shoved her up the aisle where he took the cockpit key from another stewardess.
