Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE UTHBRIDOE HERALD Tutiday, January 11, 1972 CAK6FM fc n meets NOT ENOUGH IS ENOUGH The owner of this picket fence behind the Haig Clinic at oth Ave. and 6lh Si. S. has obviously had It with motorists using his fence instead of their brakes to stop their backward movement. But what will he do next if the sign doesn't work Pitic 62 wheat varieties will have 103 producers By RIC SWIHART Staff Writer REGINA Pitic 62, one of the original feed grade wheat varieties to be introduced to Canada in 1969, will be grown by 103 producers on a com- mercial scale for the first tune this year. Pitic was originally grown in Mexico and because of its high yielding ability, it became part of Ihe "Green Revolution" throughout South America and Southeast Asia. It is to be used as a feed Wheat (for tbe livestock indus- try) in Canada because it yields 20 per cent higher than domestic varieties but Is of in- ferior quality by Canadian standards. G. N. Vogel, chief commis- sioner of the Canadian wheat board, said the large number of producers to be allowed to grow the variety, after the three-year experimental pe- riod, is due to the need for testing on commercial quanti ties. There were 117 samples re- ceived and more are expected. Mr. Vogel told me second an- nual Palliser Wheat Growers' Association c o n v e n lion he didn't expect the total amount of grain grown to be large. The grain will be shipped to Thunder Bay next winter for export in the spring. Then tbe board will know tbe market- ability of Pitic as a feed grain, said Mr. Vogel. "I hope this alone won't zrake farmers substantially in- crease the acreage of said Mr. Vogel. 'It's not tbe best feed wheat." He said this type of lower- grade wheat could dilute Can- ada's reputation for quality grain. HAIG CLINIC Is Pleased To Announce KENNETH W. HOLT, M.D. has joined the staff in ine Department of Family Practice The grain will be marketed as a Number 6 grade wheat and will sell for about SI per bushel delivered. This is Dot a good return for the producer, but Mr. Vogel said if Canada can develop a good feed wheat with a high yield, then there is a possibil- ity the fanner can make mon- ey on feed wheat.

"Regulations governing safe- ty signs at service stations will be among the first to be en- forced .according to Doug Kom- etz. city fire inspector. "TV Alberta service "station regulation and city fire bylaw require signs prohibiting smok- ing and open flames from any area where gaosline is dis- pensed to be clearly he said. "All city service staiom are alto required by city bylaw to have a two-sided sign clearly displayed on each pump Island, which Instructs ah vehicle drivers to turn off their engine while their car is fueled." The sale of gasoline for other than use in a motor vehicle is limited to no more than five gal- lons at a time. "The distribution of gasoline in such cases is limited to only certified containers of metal m plastic. .Each container must also have an inspection sticker supplied by service station at- tendants. "To qualify for the transfer and etaage of gasolines con- tainer must be constructed of metal or special plastic and have a suitable cap and per- manent-type washer which will not allow Mr. Kom- etz said. "Before a service station at- tendant may sell gasoline he must either see the special dia- mond-shaped sticker or inspect tbe container himself and place a sticker on it if he finds it suitable." The city fire bylaw prohibits tte storage or use of gasoline in any house or apartment. However, gasoline may be stored in any amount up to five gallons in a gorge, as long as it is kept in a properly-marked and sttckered container. "The use of gasoline as a cleaner or solvent inside a house is strictly prohibited be- cause collected fumes could re- sult in a fire and Mr. Kometz said. Failure to comply with any of the fire bylaw could result in charges and possible pro- seucnon or gasoline-fed fire. Reporter recalls first sight of the Queen Elizabeth in Hong Kong By JOE MA Staff Writer The death In Hong Kong of the once-mighty Queen Elizabeth, shortly before she was to take on a new mis- sion of peace, learning and understanding, must sadden tbe hearts of thousands. A typical one is Ralph Ml- chebon, Lethbridge police chief, who fought In Europe during the Second World War and came home aboard the Queen in 1945. "It is indeed a sad thing to see such a magnificent ship, which ferried Allied troops and survived U-boat attacks, die in Hong Chief Miehelson said. Many of fte Royal Cana- dian Legion Club in LeUi- bridge also members knew the Queen. They and other veterans across Canada and the world, will miss her. Latest news agency reports said sabotage was suspected at the inglorious end of the 33-year-old former Cunard liner, once the world's big- gest passenger ship. I was in Hong Kong when the vessel steamed into Victoria Harbor after a troubled journey from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, last spring, under the guidance of an emotional Geoffrey Marr, the last British master of the Queen. The Alexander, the world's largest fireboat, sprayed hoses of welcome as the Hong Kong director of ma- rine, who .started his career as a cadet aboard the Queen, saluted. C. Y. Tung, the Chinese shipping magnate whose ton- nage was close to Aristotle Onassis, received tribute from UN Secretary-Genera] U Thant for bis plan to turn tho Queen into an interna- tional floating university, re- named Seawise. "The international com- munity will be truly grateful to Mr. Thant said. Mr. Tung bought the Queen for million after a plan to turn her into a tourist at- traction in Florida failed to materialize. Because of her giant size, Mr. Tung planned to sail her to either Japan or Singapore for final repairs after inter- nal decorations were done in Hong Kong. Tbe Queen ran into trouble near Aruba on her journey to Hong Kong. The Seawise was supposed to begin her cruise around the world this year with in- ternational students and an all-American faculty. Regis- tration was being handled by Chapmann College of Orange, California. Mr. Tung, who spent more than million to refurnish the ship, became an over- night champion in the Brit- ish Crown Colony, where 98 Travel industry meets next month ALL HANDBAGS REDUCED TO CLEAR WINTER FASHION BOOTS AT REDUCED PRICES OPEN VffD. Till 6 P.M. THURSDAY TILL P.M. 6th ST. S. PHONE 317-3344 By GREG McINTYRE Staff Writer A wide range of fields relat- ed to the travel Industry will be reii.-esented at a conference at Calgary on Feb. 4 and 5, Bob Dowling, Alberta minister responsible for tourism has an- nounced. The Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta is expected to send representa- tives and possibly a brief, said TCASA manager Prank Smith. Mr. Dowling said it is impor- tant to Alberta's third largest industry "that Hie government and those in the private sector of tourism dearly understand each other's goals, challenges aid problems." Agents will represent the provincial and federal travel departments, travel associa- tions of Alberta and Canada, airlines, railroads, motor clubs, highway associations, hotels, motels, restaurants, trailer courts, backs, bus lines, car rentals, exhibitions, parks, civ- il aviation and oil companies, said the minister. The conference, Hie second of its kind, is called "Checkpoint ?2" and will focus on the chal- lenges that face tourism in tbe 1970's. Mr. Dowling said the provin- cial government will review a 32-point brief at the conference. The brief, presented to the cabi- net by the Travel Industry As- sociation of Alberta, will be used to illustrate government plans and policy, he said. Mr. Smith said the "crying need in tourism right now in Alberta is a massive and effi- cient program for use in the mass advertising media." Radio, television and news- paper advertising should be aimed at bringing travellers to this pl-oraise, he said. Mr. Smith said one way to improve tourism here would be to alter Air Canada rates to give preferential treatment to people wishing to travel within Canada. This uould boost tourism to Alberta and serve to help unite the country, he said. HIGH TEMPERATURE The temperature of the bird's body is from two to M degrees higher than that of mammals.

Addressing the second an- nual convention of the Palliser Wheat Growers' Association, Mr. Uchida said grain account- ed for one-third of the total ex- port to Japan in 1965. By 1969, grain accounted for one sixth of the total. The total export in was million. This increased to million in 1967. He said the market for fine grains would likely increase in the 1970s. Mr. Uchida sparked table talk among farmers with his comment on an expanded meat market trade for the 1970s. He said Japan can go one of two ways in this decade, and ways will mean a benefit :o the Canadian farming com. munity. A rapid westernization, a >igher standard of living and ugher wages have led Japan- ese food consumption to in- creased animal product. This means more animal pro- duction or more animal import, said. He said the Japanese feed train production was decreas- ng. A most rapid decline in this area has led ot a high de- lendance on concentrated, high- energy rations within the Jap- anese meat industry. He said the concentrate re- quirements should be of inter- est to Canadian fanners. "The barley imports and other coarse grains will double rom to ho said. Mr. Uchida indicated the country may go to the Importa- tion of large amounts of cattle for slaughter. This also would benefit Canadian agriculture. He said the increase would be substantial. Present amounts of meat eaten by Japanese peo- ple amount to eight calorics of energy per person per day. This will be uicrrnsed to 17 cal- ories in the near future. This compares with 403 cal- ories per person per day ac- quired from meat in the U.S. LETHBRIDGE FOUNDATION (Incorporated Private Act, Alberta, 18th April, 1746) P.O.
