TO CALGARY NOBLEFORD (HNS) - Mr. and Mrs. Allan Ronney have moved from Nobleford to Calgary where Mr. Ronney is finishing his courses at the Institute of Technology. 400,002 feet of lumber a day. Logging operations to feed these plants are beginning their mid-winter step-up rate toward yard inventory of enough saw-logs and smallwood to keep both plants fully producing over the two to three months spring season when road weight restrictions and spring runoff curtail woods supply. Lumber is being shipped regularly with a slight increase in demand showing in early January though prices remain stagnant. Yard lumber storage at Cran-brook is on .the cleared hillside of the acreage at its northwest edge. Both plants operate on close utilization, and supply of chips to the subsidiary Crestbrook Pulp and Paper Company pulp-mill at Skookumchuk is about in balance now. The pulpmill is producing at slightly below rated capacity in the vicinity of 400 tons of bleached kraft daily most of which is going steadily to the American market. CFI retained title to the 33 acres south of South Sixth Street which was incorporated into city limits with establishment of the Industrial Park as incorporated area, and is continuous southward of the Park. It still is site for CFI machine shop and garage, and storage space for equipment and chips surplus. CFI retail building supplies also remains there. Pending new extension of city limits to include Slaterville will leave this large undeveloped acreage in an advantageous position in industrial zone. Meanwhile it is unofficial and strickly trespass playground for the many Slaterville area children, a play park which might boggle even playground gadgetry ideals of the world's most advanced park planners including two idle burners, planer shelter, partly burned slot-sorter and former sawmill complex shelter along with the mountain of chips.

(Bud) Olson, federal minister of agriculture, recently at the Raymond town hall. Following the address, the meeting was opened for questions.

There were a number of questions which should have been directed to Alberta government officials. These Mr. Olson declined to answer. Mr. Olson placed wheat in the prime position as most of those present were wheat producers. He outlined the stand the government has taken to reduce the large volume of wheat produced in the past. He spoke of the LIFT program and gave figures to show the present inventory of all Canadian grain-crops. He touched on other grain producing nations, telling of the problems each has. "Each wheat or grain pro- ducing nation must give and take to produce a successful program for all." "Canada has the kind of wheat the countries are calling for. We must be able to guarantee the protein content of every bushel we sell." He went on to tell of the program being introduced for protein tests across Canada in the wheat producing areas. Mr. Olson spoke in detail on the new Grain Act supplement.

Mr. Olsen disclosed there will be a change in the grain delivery quota system before this year's crop is harvested. Speaking to the producers of beef, he told them Canada needs more beef of the variety being produced in the best areas. "We must keep our standard up in all thinfis we hope to export to other nations," he said1. Regarding the hog market, Mr. Olson foresees very little price change during the first months of this new year. The brightest spot in the over-pop-duction of hogs is "many brood animals are being sent to market at the present time." Mr. Olson is optimistic for the future of Canadian agriculture but he did: not at any time lead his audience to believe all is well." There are many problems to be faced and solved in the future. We must work with the countries of the world and hope to find the best solutions for Canada." - Monday, January 11, 1971 - THE tETHGHIDOt KIRAIB - S Downey: pollution control powers need clarifying CRANBROOK (Special) -Determining of actual powers of regional districts in pollution control and planning must be clarified in 1971, says Vincent Downey, Regional District of East Kootenay board chairman. He hopes for 1971 provincial legislation clarifying regional district authority. Though planning is in theory a major function of this intermediary body between provincial and municipal governments, the RDEK Elk River rural zoning bylaw toward orderly development and conservation was refused final enactment by the provincial department (for the present). Related problems of pollution also implied as regional district sphere have also been bypassed by the senior government in ruling the regional board must examine pollution permit applications only for possible regional bylaw violations, but authority to issue the permits remains with the senior government. Third frustration concerns rural garbage sites. The regional district was assigned by the senior government in early summer to establish 38 of these through East Kootenay, but stringent limitations required in the assignment as to location, terrain and drainage in the frequently vertical Rocky Mountain Trench have so far pre-vented establishing any of these. Mr. Downey concludes: "We want to please people, but we must above all protect the country."
