Daryl Sturrock, project secretary, said she had to negotiate a bank loan Just to get the project, sponsored by the Voice of Alberta Native Women, under way. The $26,500 program employs eight field officers and is designed to offer a "Wide range of counselling services to Indian families in Taber, Lethbridge, Brocket, and Standoff' ‘ We’re trying to get parents and children to worit in har mony to solve things like alcoholism, glue-sniffing, and theft,” Mrs. Sturrock explained. The project employees will also work with parents, attempting to give them enough personal strength and stability to work effectively with their children’s problems. She said the counsellors will be dealing with areas that most people take for granted. Many Indian families live on a diet of potato chips and softdrinks and the LiP workers will have to offer these famihes information on nutrition and proper household management.

About 107 people turned out at the Taber Recreation Centre to hear three written presentations against the bylaw. Attendance was about half that of a previous meeting. The resolution is not binding on the MD council which now must make a decision, Doug Francis, council secretary-treasurer said. He added the council has been told by the provincial department of municipal affairs to pass a development control bylaw by Jan, 31. up in mid-June, Mrs. Sturrock said the group is hoping that alternate sources of money can be found to continue the project without government assistance. U300 students register for spring session About 1,300 full and parttime students registered during registration day this wetìt at the University of Lethbridge, according to figures released this morning. However, tìie figure for the spring semester is incomplete because It docs not represent late or off-campus registrations. Registrar Jack Oviatt said he was pleased with the number who turned out for registration. “We registered more students than anticipated. It may be up a bit from the fall semester,” he said. When the count is complete, Mr. Oviatt expects the total may be slightly more than 1,500 students who registered for the first semester. Classes began Thursday at the U of L. Enrolment for off campus courses should be complete by Jan. 25. "More Action By Auctìon" PHARMACY FACTS FROM 0. C. STUBBS The word "cascara” Is familiar to most peopl®, and It IS usually assumed to have been an Indian word. The truth of the matter is that it actually came down to us from the Spaniards who called it "cascara sagrada" which means holy bark. Their thinking went back to the ancient Greek god of medicine, Aesculapius, who’s sacred tree was used during Greek periods of mourning. No one knows lust how or when the Spaniards found that an extract of the cascara lyark could b« used in its present medical form. It is one of the simplest and still one of the most effective means of acMeving relief from constipation.

VOLKtWAQIN MHtCHt AUDI Spur line needed in B.C. By Herald Staff Writer REGINA - An application is the only thing holding up construction of 40 miles of rail line in British Columbia that would improve winter grain shipments to Vancouver, according to an official of the Canadian Transport Commission. Rock group plans concert The rock group Painter will appear in conqert at the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion Jan. 20. Advance tickets will be sold for $3 at Leister’s, Musicland, Shopper’s Drug Mart and the Centre Village Mall. Tickets will be available at a higher price at the door. Painter was formerly known as the 49th Parallel and the Parallels. A Lethbridge group, Kathy and the Kool Aide Kids, will also appear at the concert, which begins at 2:30 p.m. Doug Dunthy of Ottawa told The Herald in an interview Thursday if one of the rail companies would apply to build the rail spur connecting both CP Rail and Canadian National Railways with B.C. rail, the work could be done. Palliser Wheat Growers Association, at its annual convention in 1973, called for the spur line connecting Clinton with Ashcroft to provide the rail companies with an alternate route through B.C. to Vancouver. During the winter months, the main CP-CNR rail lines Is blocked by snowslides for up to three weeks. The B.C. Rail line is blocked only eight days on the average. This would allow the . vital grain shipments to continue longer and prevent shortages of grain at Vancouver, said Clarence Taylor of Regina, second vicepresident of the association. Canada is already 120 million bushels behind the pace shipped to export position in the same period last year. Snow slides on the main rail line to Vancouver will put the total just that much farther behmd, he said. Mr. Dunthy said a rail line this long would need government legislation Once okayed by government, the CPC would have to approve the route map design and construction. CaiHlid Dinlal Miilinit CUfFiUCK. BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDNMLKffTALHN. LArtrUv.1 moNt iXT-am By RIG SWIHART Herald Staff Writer REGINA The marketing of Canada’s rapeseed will remain free of government controls following a poll responded to by nearly 80 per cent of the producers of the crop. A statement made In the House of Commons Thursday by Otto Lang, minister in charge of the Canadian wheat board, sent a wave of favorable reaction through the Palliser Wheat Growers Association convention proceedings here. Official and unofficial reaction from farmers, farm and industry leaders and government representatives here seem to back up the results of the poll, favoring the open market system for rapeseed. The poll was called by Mr. Lang to allow rapeseed producers to select the method of marketing they wanted — through the open market system which has been in operation since the oilseed crop gained popularity or through the Canadian wheat board, the grain-selling agency of the federal government. First reports from Ottawa showed acceptance of the open^market system for rapeseed was unanimous. But delegates to the Palliser convention are primed to get the full details from Mr. Lang when he gives the main convention talk tonight On the poll ballots, sent to 36,000 rapeseed producers, farmers could vote for the open market system, the wheat board system or undecided. According to the reports from Ottawa less than two per cent of the completed ballots were marked undecided.    ., ^ And to Palliser president Walter Nelson, this meant a breath of fresh air in the agricultural industry. “Farmers have seen enough demerits of government control,” he said, during a preconvention reception ’Thursday, “Things are more wide open now. The farmer has more freedom of choice to market his grain. “Now farmers can ask for a choice in the marketing of grains now controlled by the wheat board.” James McAnsh, president of the Rapeseed Association of Canada, said, without knowing all the details of Mr. Lang’s announcement, “It’s what I expected." He said the proponents of wheat board control must accept the results of this poll and leave the marketing of rapeseed to the open market system. “‘It has been decided by the guy who grows the crop.” ‘ Roger Murray, president of Cargill Grain Canada Ltd., one of Canada’s major exporters of grain for the past 30 years, said the rapeseed poll goes beyond just rapeseed. "The producer has had a choice to say what he hasn’t for years," he said. “The poll determined that the rapeseed producers want a lot of flexibility and competition in the sale of their product — something they wouldn’t get under the wheat board system.” Mr. Murray said this vote of confidence by the rapeseed producer in the open-market system will add stability to the rapeseed industry in Canada. The Winnipeg Commodity Exchange, which trades on the daily and future markets in rapeseed, was the chief advocate for retention for the open-markei system. Without the right to buy and sell rapeseed outside government control, the commodity exchange would have died since rapeseed is a major part of the daily work load. In a pr«)ared statement issued to The Herald Thursday, the commodity exchange said the vote to continue selling rapeseed through an open market system demonstrates confidence that this gives them a profitable return and a valued cash incolme. Farmers’ market discussions set By Herald Staff Writer REGINA — Discussions between Lethbridge business and provincial government representatives to establish another farfner’s market in Southern Alberta are scheduled for Monday or Tuesday. Omar Broughton, a marketing officer for* the Alberta department of agriculture, told The Herald prior to the annual meeting of the Palliser Wheat Growere Association Thursday, he will discuss the possibility of a farmer’s market with representatives of the Southern Alberta Co-operative Association. One of the locations to be discussed is the Lethbridge Exhibition Grounds. Since the provincial government announced a $10,000 grant available to individuals and groups to establish farmers’ markets in Alberta, only Bow Island in the area south of Calgary has appUed. There are 42 other applications from the rest of the province. Mr. Broughton said he vrill try to interest other towns in the south, including Taber, Vauxhall, and Fort Macleod, in establishing a farmer’s market. New rail system needed before abandonment Doug Dunthy of Ottawa, attending the annual Palliser Wheat Gr REGINA — A reasonable and efficient rail systena must be approved before rail line abandonment on the prairies can take place, according to an official of the Canadian Transport Commission. Native society director quits Another member of the board of directors of the Native Friendship Society of Southern Alberta has resiped, leaving only two that 1 were elected at the annual general meeting. Eva Teles, with over two years tenure on the board, tendered her resignation, effective immediately, “because of the pressure of other responsibilities.” However, she did indicate she would continue to work in the Lethbridge Friendship centre as a volunteer, saying she feels she will be more effective in that role. In an interview, Mrs. Teles said she was unhappy with the way the centre is being run and was upset that the board voted to accept the resignation of Corey Foster as executive director. The vacancy left by her resignation will be filled at the society’s next board meeting in February. Since the annual general meeting last spring, all but two of the directors elected at that time have resigned. At a spccial membership meeting held last month, the entire board was reconstituted. _____grower’s Association as an observer, told The Herald in an mtervlew the reason all rail line abandonment was frozen at least until Jan. 1,1975 was to crack down on indiscriminate abandonment. He said without the freeze, It was possible many lines would have been dropped by the rail companies to suit their own needs and without taking other factors into consideration. He said until the rail companies can assure the commission they can provide a more reasonable and efficient rail system through abandonment, there won t be. In any case, the rail transport committee of the CTC will assess each application for abandonment on its own merit, if and when there is an application. The territory, industry served and the people are just some of the many factors the committee would consider with each application for abandonment. FOX DENTURE CLINIC Est 1922 PHONE 32T-eStS E. S. P.
