Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-12,Lethbridge, Alberta IS - THE tETMBRmOi HERALD - Salurdiy, jMUiry 12. «74 Lang favors plan Advisory group farmer-elected ^ Herald Staff Writer REGINA — A producer — elected advisory commiUee to the Canadian wheat board, possibly as early as this summer, has been predicted by the federal minister in charge of the Canadian grain-selling agency. The announced committee, which now consists of 11 industry officials appointed by the minister, drew the most reaction from nearly 600 delegates to the 4th annual meeting of the Palliser Wheat Growers Association. Otto Lang, who holds the justice portfolio in addition to controlling the wheat board, said he was in favor of direct farm input to the committee’s makeup. “Some people have reservations but it is a hard idea to fight.” Pointing to the recently completed producer ballot on the method of rapeseed marketing, Mr. Lang said the result was clear enough for everybody. Farmers presented a clear view, a majority favoring the present open market system, he said. The alternative was control by the Canadian wheat board. He said between 75 and 80 per cent of rapeseed producers responded to the poll and less than two per cent voted undecided about the marketing technique. When asked how he would satisfy 25 or 30 per cent of producers who wanted price >rotection through wheat ward marketing, Mr. Lang said the percentage in favor of government control “was higher than that.” He also announced two major changes for rapeseed marketing. There will be a government appointed supervisor named for the Winnipeg Commodity Exchange which is responsible for marketing rapeseed. And he is sure a program of voluntary rapeseed pooling for those who want it can be worked out. Under this system, farmers not sure of price returns can s"ll their rapeseed for an average price, allowing the sale of razeed over a long period of time to determine the final returns. This IS the system adopted by government controlled selling. When all the grain is sold all producers share in the total sales of the grain. Mr. Lang pointed to the FONDUE CHAFER 2 qt.

Bill Beaton, grains coordinator for the port of Vancouver, said the volume of grain moved into export position IS down about 120 million bushels compared to the same period a year ago. Despite the fact that Canada’s export total will reach only 700 to 800 million bushels, Mr. Lang said for the fourth year in a row, Canada will dispose of more grain than it grew. Declaration clarified Now Only — 598 Call China 327-5767 DOWNTOWN A Story which appeared in The Herald Thursday, declaring Mayor Andy Anderson’s ineligibiiity to vote on the city’s power plant issue, was inaccurate. There are no corporate ties whatever between Calgary Power and Canadian Western Natural Gas Co., as the story implied. At Monday special meeting to discuss a report on the power plant, Mayor Anderson declared himself ineligible because he is a director of Canadian Western Natural Gas. Catalogue of seeds available While hundreds of Southern Albertans have escaped to Hawaii or the Caribbean to beat the cold spell, hundreds more are indulging in a much cheaper sanctuary. Ths week’s mail brought the first of the 1974 seed and nursery catalogues, usually the first sign that another spring is on the way. The colder the evenings, the greater delight the true gardener takes in drooling over the new varieties of both flowers and vegetables and in rediscovering the hidden potential of the varieties he grew last year. Dave Allan, manager of the Sunrise Ranch at Coaldale, reports that most greenhouse operators have already ordered their seeds but the first plantings probably won’t be made until late this month. Dustry Miller, the lobelias and some of the pansies are usually the first to go in. CirttMOfiiMMicliiiitc CLIFF BUUX. BLACK DENTAL LAB MEMCM.OENTM.ILM.

The report, which was presented to council behind closed doors by the Bellevue, Wash, consulting firm last Monday, will be made public for the first time ait the meeting which begins at 8 p.m. While aldermen have kept the report from the public, Calgary Power has had two copies of the report for several days. Calgary Power received copies of the report as a member of the Electric Utility Planning Council, a body made up of all the province’s utility companies, both public and private including the city, which was formed to coordinate planning of future power production in the province. The re[wrt makes a clear presentation of the alternatives open to the city and states which will be the least costly to the city over a 15-year period. It’s expected that a motion will be made at Monday’s meeting to table the report for public reaction, and possibly a public meeting to which the consultants would be invited to answer questions about their report. While the power plant item will probably be the Issue of most interest Monday, council will also deal with two propos* ed bylaws directly affecting the public. One is a tough new bicycle bylaw that sets out a list of do’s and don’ts for cyclists and 93 tickets for violators. The other is a bylaw dealing with “unsightly and untidy” premises. And Aid. Bill Kerran has served notice he'll make a motion that the city and the Canada Winter Games Society get together to build and enter a float for this year's Whoop-Up Days parade. The proposed bicycle bylaw, which is up for all three readings, would make mandatory, adequate brakes, a rear reflector, and electric front and rear lights at night. Among other things, it also sets out how cycles should be ridden — both hands on the handlebars except when signalling, both feet on the p^als, only one person per cycle — where bikes can be ridden — not in parks where prohibited, nor on sidewalks where they interfere with pedestrian traffic, cemeteries, and not side by side. Police Chief Ralph Michelson says his department is pleased with the draft bylaw. It covers the needs that caused concern and the department forsees no problem in implementing it, he says. The unsightly and untidy premises bylaw arose out of complaints raised at council last spring of junked autos on private property. If passed it would allow the city to direct people to clean up their property within a given time. The owner can appeal to council against the order, but if he loses and does not make the necessatr improvements, the city would be empowered to do the clean-up and bill the owner. The bylaw is also up for all three readings Monday. Growing export market for meat said saviour Man^s encroachment A row of former trees, all neatly lopped off and capped with snow, make way for the advance of civilization, north of Sparwood, B.C. Losses total $5 million Fatal cattle ailment studied Bovine coccidiosis, a disease which annually causes up to $5 million in losses for Canadian cattlemen, is the study project for a new scientist at the federal Animal Diseases Research Institute in Lethbridge. Peter Stockdale, a native of England, started active research at the institute June 1 after completing his doctorate at the University of Guelph in 1969 and working at "    Veterinary for a three-month study session at Utah State University to work with North America’s foremost authority on the disease, Dr. Dattus Hammond. Dr. Stockdale said Dr. Hammond has developed techniques and data systems on the disease through 30 years of research. By working at the university with Dr. Hammond, Dr, Stockdale will be able to develop research projects which don’t duplicate work already done in the U.S. Dr. Stockdale said although cattlemen in Southern Alberta can diagnose the disease and are able to treat it, his research will, in the long run, be aimed at prevention and control. Another research project Dr. Stockdale is working on is lung worms in cattle. This problem is causing difficulties for cattlemen in northern Alberta and British Columbia. By Herald Staff Writer REGINA — A growing export market for red meats will be the saviour of the Western Canadian livestock feeding industry, according to Otto Lang, minister in charge of the Canadian wheat board. Mr. Lang, in an interview following his address to nearly 600 delegates to the fourth annual meeting of the Palliser Wheat Growers Association, blamed consumer resistance to red meats, primarily beef, for some of the economic difficulties of livestock feeders. Dick Gray, president of the Alberta Cattle Feeders Association, reported last week that livestock feedlot operators with cattle and people who bought young cattle to fatten for slaughter were now losing from $50 to ?150 per animal sold to the packing industry. He said the economic squeeze has already driven some cattle feeders out of the Onatrio ----------„ United Way will award comiMt 11» cawe itsaie.    contributors committee said the board of which during the winter causes dysenteiy primarily in feedlot animals, will Involve screening drugs from other countries which aren’t available in Canada.

Chinook likely by Monday A warming trend, gradually overtaking the cold weather that has enveloped Southern Alberta for the past week, could turn into a chinook Monday or Tuesday. The ridge of high pressure that has resulted in record low temperatures in the area is slowly being squeezed to the northeast by a low pressure system moving in from the west. Temperatures are expected to rise to 5 to 10 above today, reaching 10 to 20 above Sunday. The mercury could dip to 10 below tonight, not quite matching the low Friday of 20 below, which occurred about 6 p.m. Skies will be cloudy, and occasional light snow flurries are expected business and was threatening many more. Chris Mills, secretary of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association, reported the high price of feed grains combined with low prices for the slaughter animals is driving the cattle feeding industry out of the west and into the United States. Mr, Lang predicted “a lot” more cattle and hog production in the next few years than during the past two years. He said its too bad livestock producers can’t be encouraged to stay in production to meet the growing need for red meats three or four years ahead. It takes about two years to conceive a calf and get that animal ready for the slaughter house. Mr. Lang also pointed to the high cost of feed grains for some of the feeders problems. “When food is on the short side people tend to bid up barley prices when in the pure form rather than in the meat form.” Research institute approved Formation of an institute of regional research at the University of Lethbridge has been approved by the university board of governors. The institute, to be developed over the next several years, will stimulate Southern Alberta-oriented research into social, physical, economic and cultural problems. It is seen as a means of increasing U of L’s value to the community by coordinating the university’s resources for research. ■ The research institute is also intended to boost current research projects and stimulate interdisciplinary research. About 12 university administrators, faculty and students will be appointed to the board of directors. The institute will begin collecting data on Southern Alberta and making the information available. The university hopes it will become selfsupporting by offering its research and statistical services to community agencies, foundations and business firms. U of L prof. to lecture down east Dr. L. G. Hepler of the University of Lethbridge chemistry department will be a guest lecturer at two Eastern Canadian universities later this month.
