S. LETHIIIDOE, AUEITA SEE US FOR All YOUR OPTICAL NEEDS Farmer is skeptical about hog proposal The huge pork slaughtering and processing indurfry whioh is considering establishing in southern Alberta is looked on with skepticism by a represen- tative of Uniform. Bill Nicpl, southern Alberta Unifarm director, said the mar- ket picture for the sale of 000 hogs is what is tottering him. "If there is a present market for that many animals, why not sell the present hog oversupply on he said in an interview. He expressed a favorable at- titude toward the operation which will export processed pork products to the Pacific Kim countries; "if they get their hogs from Alberta producers." He said the big thing is that the operators want the top 12 to 15 per cent of the Alberta hog supply. That leaves the rest of the people in Alberta with inferior hogs because all the processed meat from the plant will be exported. "What if the company loses the hog export market and all the hogs are brought back to the Alberta hog he speculated. "If this operation is establish- ed and for some reason it fails, it could dump three quarters of a million hogs on the Alberta market in one year." He said if packing plants would use all the bogs now in Alberta rather than trying to breed specific index grades of hogs, it would help the total economic picture of the agn cultural industry. Teachers support open-area schools By RON CALDWELL Staff Writer Teachers in the two open- area schools in the Lethbridge public school system have ex- pressed concern with reports that some members of the teaching fraternity are dissatis- fied with the open area con- cept. Joe Lakie, principal of Fleet- wood Bawden Elementary School, said the 17 open-area teachers in the school have pressed unanimous support for open area classrooms. Don Hagen, principal of Ag- nes Davidson Elementary School, said that while the 12 open area teachers in his school have not been polled, he feels there is equally strong support there for the concept. PHARMACY FACTS from O. C.STUBBS Yes, we carry all kinds of non-prescription drugs and we are, of course, glad to sell them to you when you ask for them. But. do become concerned 5 when any cus- tomcr continual- lly. buys non-pre- I scription drugs (because it could I mean that the J; c o n d i t ion for 6 which they arc being bought might be considered to be chronic. These remedies, then, give the. customer only tempor- ary relief instead of working towards curing the physical con- dition for which they are being taken. So, if the home remedy you're taking is merely giving you temporary relief, please consult your doctor. Wo see too many instances of misplaced faith in temporary, home re- medy medicines which eventual- ly make regaining good health almost an impossibility. There is also the parallel dan- ger of using a useful drug (non- prescripition) too too large a dose, and given to children that are loo young. You can always denend on Stubbs Pharmacy to be your friendliest place where service and quality meet here in Leth- bridge. Filling your prescription is our main business here at 1506 9lh Ave. S. Open daily a.m. to p.m. Sundays and Holidays p.m. to p.m. and p.m. to p.m. Mr. Lakie said the Fleetwood Bawden teachers have signet a letter to be sent to the schoo board expressing their suppor of open area classrooms. The letter states.: "While no system is ever perfect, we be- lieve that open area has many advantages both for students and teachers which cannot be realized in self-contained class rooms. "As individual members o the Fleetwood Bawden staff we prefer to teach in an open area rather than in the self contained classrooms." Mr, Hagen said teachers a Agnes Davidson have taken no definite action as yet. "We will probably be doing something along the same lines to give support to open area said Mr. Hagen "The feedback we have been getting from all those involved has been extremely good." Mr. Hagen and Mr. Lakie said they both have teachers on a waiting list who want to get into an open area class- room. The 'concern among teachers Allows a statement made by a representative of the Lethbridge Council of Home and School As- sociations to this week's public school board meeting. Marilyn Kranuner told the board that several teachers have said confidentially they are not in favor of open area classrooms. Mrs. Krammer declined, in an interview with The Herald, to specify where the complaints have come from. "Those I have talked to have told me not to reveal their names or the schools they teach ill under any said Mrs. Krammer. "I'm beginning to think some- thing is really wrong. All we wanted was the answers to a few simple questions, and it has everyone in an uproar." million Bow Island looks at hog plant By JIM MAYBIE Staff Writer Farmers, hog producers and grain growers in the Bow Is- land area will meet Jan. 20 to discuss a proposal for a multi- million dollar hog producing and processing industry for southern Alberta. Mayor Fred Mellen of Bow Island said the proposal by North Ameri can Integrated Food Processing Co. Ltd. calls for a million to million pork processing plant. Company principals have in- dicated employment would be provided for to Mayor Mellen said, and plant on site housing would amount to about 400 homes. The finished pork product would be exported to the Orient, mainly to Japan. Ex- ports would amount to an esti- mated million annually. The Jan. 20 meeting will be held at p.m. in the Burdett community hall to acquaint in- terested persons in the area with file proposal. The meeting is sponsored by the Town of Bow Island. A similar meeting will be held in Taber the following day. Mayor Meilen said the com- pany is hoping to establish in the Lethbridge Taber Bow Island Medicine Hat-Brooks area and has turned down bids from iKore northern Alberta communities. Interest is running high In the Bow Island area, Mayor Mellen said. A representative lot the town is going to go to [Ottawa in an attempt to help the company establish at Bow Island. The town has offered a plant site but has stipulated the com- pany would have to provide its own sewage treatment facili- ties. The company is offering to pay grain growers a than market price for theil product. By using specified breeding stock, to develop a high grade carcass, bog pro- ducers are to be told they will receive a 10 to 15-per-cent pre- mium for their animals. It has also been indicated, Mayor Mellen said, that hog producers would be allowed to use their existing buildings and would not nave to build to company requirements. The plant is proposed to pro- cess hogs a year. Lethbridge was the first southern Alberta community to be in touch with the principals. Since Sept. 8, four meetings have been held. The city has been In contact with the hog marketing board and the provincial and federal departments of agriculture.

(new ai lew at 9th Slriet and 2nd South Phone 327-4064 An agency where profession- als may deal with young peo- ple's problems is badly needed in Lethbridg'e, says Scott Kinnon. Mr. McKinnon, a worker with the Alberta department nf cul- ture, youth and recreation, was addressing a meeting Thursday of the Southern Alberta Coun- cil on Public Affairs. He said the estimated local young people who have serious problems do not have access to the best counselling services available for their needs. "The home and the parents is the place to start when attempt- ing to solve these Mr. McKinnon said. He agreed with several com- ments that "a place to be" was what many young people need- ed, rather than a structured recreational program with ex- cessive supervision.
