Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 6, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta VISIT HAWAII with Bill MATHESON It dan nlghtt far Information and booklnti coll ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CINTKE VILLAGE MALI 321-3501 The LetKbridge Herald SECOND SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, 6, 1972 PAGES 11 TO 22 NOW IN OUR NEW LOCATION CECIL OXENBURY DISPENSING OPTICIANS LTD. 101 PROFESSIONAL BLDG. 740 4th AVE. S. LITHBRIDGE, SEE US FOR ALL YOUR OPTICAL NEEDS Farm market bill good for poultry liiy RIC SWIHART Staff Writer The national farm products marketing bill C-176 will give, immediately, increased value to oil poultry farms and out- lets, according to Herman Lowen, a turkey breeder in Fort Macleo'd. Mr. Lowen, who feels pas sage of the bill in the House of Commons added to the value of his operation, said the legislation will give poultry producers a new lease on bank credit and allow them to get cheaper money. He said it will definitely help to stabilize the price the pro- ducer gets for his product and it will assure die consumer of a good product and a steady supply. Mr. Lowen feels the legisla- tion should raise the price of live poultry by at least two cents per pound for the pro- ducer by spring or summer of 1972. Apparently the marketing council will consist of one pro- ducer from each province cho- sen by the federal government. Once established, the na- tional board can determine which production area each province can serve most effi- ciently, said Mr. Lowen. "We won't have to draw bor- he said. "The market situation will determine what is best for the producer." He feels the bill will allow the poultry industry to oper- ate more efficiently. Should one province be short come product through disease or under-estimated production, the national board could direct product into that area in the most efficient way. Mr. Lowen said the national marketing board is not a people closed shop as many think. "Our marketing board in Al- berta must offer 35 per cent of any increased production to the new growers who may want to get into the he said. "This helps the whole indus- try." He said there has never been a production surplus that sold at a price to bring the pro- ducer a decent profit. "That's what Bill C-176 will help he said. He said he was extremely up- set about statements attributed to Deane Gundlock, MP Lethbridge, who rapped the marketing bill as "useless leg- islation." 'I would like Mr. Gundlock to publically tell why C-176 isn't good said Mr. Lowen. "I would like him to tell the public why he and his party tampered the bill when it is capable of doing so much for :he poultry industry in all of Canada." Snowy weather somewhat costly The extra-heavy snow falls experienced so far this year are proving costly to the aver- age Lethbridge citizen. Although no actual snow re- moval cost figures are avail- able, more than double the normal amount of snow that fell on the city in December is eating up lire estimated budgeted for snow re- moval faster than expected. In addition, wind storms ac- companying snow, falls have caused road and school clos- ures in rural areas. Some schools closed by snow and blowing winds earlier this week are today reopening but others such as St. Mary's School on the Blood reserve are closed. Drifts on roads and almost zero driving visibility have caused a rash of fender-ben- ders as vehicles are driven off roads. Snowfalls in Dec. dumped 13.7 inches in the city com- pared to the normal average of 7.5 inches. During the past two nights city work crews have cleaned of roads 3rd Ave. east to 13 St. N. and S. and 9th Ave. by St. Michael's General Hospi- tal. Also cleaned were 3rd and 4th Ave. south and 5th St. to 8th St. S. k Tonight city crews will be back on 5th St. to finish a job they could, not complete last night because of parked cars. They will1 also work on 9th Ave. from 4th to 13th St. S. An RCMP spokesman said the main traffic arteries in southern Alberta have been re- stored to good driving condi- tion. Chinook, winds are expected to keep the temperatures in ,the mid 30s for the next couple of days while evening lows drop to about 10 above. However winds will continue to gust between 40 and 45 miles per hour throughout southern Alberta. ALCOHOL ART BIRMINGHAM (CP) Beer drinking is an art, it seems.

The board will ask the Alberta colleges commission for permission to spend the surplus on land when the commission is here Feb. 0. The college board went into secret session to discuss ways to spend the surplus after receiving a letter from the commission that asked the board to recommend how it wished to spend the money. After the meeting, college president Dr. C. D. Stewart said the board choice would be purchase of land to ward off city development that is "rapidly closing in on us." The surplus roughly 10 per cent of last year's million-plus budget resulted from a variety of savings including the late expansion of college library facilities, withholding of hiring a college vice-president until last monlh and an extra payment for not disclosed.
