Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - the lethbrioge herald - Monday, January 14, 1974 Higher prices forecast for ve Just missed chinook Some young hockey players have a pick-up game Sunday at Henderson Lake despite the sub-zero weather. Had they been up before daybreak they could have played In balmy chinook weather. A Chinook hit Lethbridge Sunday about 3 a.m. and the temperatures rose to 35 degrees above zero. However, by 6 a.m. It was back down to six below and it gradually got colder by one or two degrees an hour 'until the mercury hit minus 11 which was Sunday night's low. In the Crowsnest Pass, the Chinook lasted until 11 a.m. when the wind shifted to the east and the temperature dropped to minus four from 38 above in about four minutes. It was 18 below in the. Pass early today. In. Cranbrook, B.C. it's 35 above with light rain. This weather could come Lethbridge's way for a couple of hours today but barring that the high will be between 10 below and zero and the low tonight will drop to between 15 and 20 below. Nomination datie extended for com-serv governors Egg producers Hosing money ^ The nomination deadline for persons to serve on a board of governors that will direct the first community service project for the retarded in Canada may have to be extended because of a lack of response.

Wednesday was to be the final day for nominations. The board of governors will co-ordinate the association's com-serv project, designed to bring the retarded back into society from institutions. Alberta egg producers are losing money with the present high costs of poultry feed but no price increases are forecast; says an official of the Alberta Egg and Fowl Marketing Board. On the average, producers are receiving 65 cents per dozen for all sizes of eggs, according to statistics released by the Canada Department of Agriculture. cost of production in Biology seminar series set for spring session GIGANTIC DINNERWARE SALE!

Soith DOWNTOWN Topics as far-ranging as nutrition, immunology and cancer, and white whales of Ij^o'rthern Canada will be discussed during spring semester biology seminars at the University of Lethbridge. The seminars will be held at 4:30 p.m. Thursday's in room C 674 of the Academic Residence Building, and are open to the public.

Speaker at a Feb. 28 seminar will be C. B. Beaty, U of L geography professor, who will be discussing how tree ring study may be applied to study of the earth's surface. Lethbridge doctor G. S. Balfour March 21 will speak on the physiology and pathology of the heart and during a seminar a week later Ian Whishaw, assistant professor in the psychology department will discuss the habits of the white whales he observed along the Seal River near Hudson Bay. D. W. Roberts of the Lethbridge Research station will head an April 4 seminar discussing work he had done to develop strains of wheat resistant to cold temperatures. The series of 13 seminars begins Thursday and �� continues until April U. Alberta is about 64.1 cents per dozen and the producers still have to pay an additional three cents per dozen to the provincial egg marketing board, putting them in a loss situation, said the official. Responsing to a report that supply pressures from the U.S. had forced the price producers received in Ontario down six cents per dozen, the official said Alberta egg prices are never set according to ouside pressures. He said the egg prices in Alberta are set directly according to the cost of production. The price producers get in Ontario dropped to 63 cents a dozen for Grade A large, compared to 71 cents a dozen in Alberta. In Ontario, egg producers have to compete with large supplies just inside the United States border. There is no U.S. competition close to Alberta. The only competition for Alberta producers comes from Manitoba but this is handled easily, said the official. Alberta producers aren't scrambling to get out of the business, rather hoping for a decrease in poultry feed prices which would decre9se the cost of production and put them back in a profit picture. The cost of production has skyrocketed in the last month and feed costs jumped 95 per ton just last week. Officials of the poultry industry report that an $8 per ton increase in feed results in a one-cent per-dozen increase in the cost of production. The poultry industry has assumed a position that it is better to set a price for their product over a longer period of time rather than fluctuating the prices frequently. If the current price can be maintained until production costs decrease, producers will begin making money again. High vegetable prices and less locally-grown produce have been forecast for Alberta in 1974. Tom Krahn.head of the horticultural crop development at the Alberta Horticultural Research Centre in Brooks, said the record prices paid for a wide range of agricultural crops in 1973 will put vegetable production under severe pressure. And a decrease in Alberta's Noon recital series starts this week The Myters High School choir from Taber Thursday will kick off the University of Lethbridge's music department's 1974 noon-hour recital series - the first-recital of the spring semester.

Leskiw of the R DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH ENERGY? Although the world is experiencing an energy crisis and it has imposed difficulties in the way most of us lead our everyday lives, there are still a few areas where energy should be plentiful. Do you wake up each morning with that personal "get-up and go," "I'm ready to face the day?" Or, do you feel tired out before you start? Sometimes, a lack of energy can possibly be due to certain deficiencies in your system. Your physician can usually determine what It Is and recommend a vitamin preparation or tonic to help you overcome it. We always have on hand a very large supply of these products.

Phena 327-8816 Trial reset for Jan. 21 An attempted murder trial scheduled today in Alberta Supreme Court has been postponed to Jan. 21 at the request of the Crown. The; postponement was asked for because a transcript of the preliminary hearing is not completed. The charge being, tried is against David Howard Vandervoort, 35, 605 Stafford Dr., accused with the Oct. 20 stabbing of Kenneth Robert List, now living in Regina. vegetable production will inevitably mean more imports, which, in turn^ will reflect high production, transportation and handling costs. Mr. Krahn claims Alberta could be almost self-sufficient in terms of vegetable production if acreages were increased to full potential. But labor, both in cost and availability, is the major problem facing producers, he said. He said an image that a farm employee holds the lowest of all possible jobs discourages people from working on farms. He said vegetable producers are finding it impossible to hire reliable farm workers even when they are willing to pay salaries competitive with those being paid by other industries. The use of machines is one method of overcoming labor deficiencies, he said, but in practice, mechanization can only be carried out to a certain degree. Hand labor is still an essential part of the vegetable industry. He strongly advises people who are already in the vegetable industry to stay in it. The financial returns from a well-run vegetable enterprise are still higher than the returns from grain or alfalfa, even through production, handling, storage and marketing costs are higher. Vegetables fit into good land use'.policies, said Mr. Krahn. They can provide an important part of crop rotations and can even serve as a substitute for summerfallowing. Mr. Krahn said Alberta producers should be prepared to cash in on the constantly-increasing market for locally-grown vegetables. He also urges producers to order seed and fertilizer requirements early. 1 education faculty says the^ new courses will be accommodated within the current budget. "We are trying to meet the provincial government's policies for upgrading teachers' preparation by offering as many courses as ever, but by cycling them over a longer period of time," he said. The content of two more courses, for students wanting to concentrate on curriculum and school program development, is flexible and can be planned around specific interests of the students. "For example, if teachers in a local school were interested in reading programs and wanted to plan a curriculum more suited to students in their school, Education 4390 could be tailored to suit that need," says Dr. Leskiw. He savs the other curriculum course will allow southern Alberta teachers to approach the faculty and outline an area in which they require more preparation. Two courses beginning July 1 are geared to meet the needs of faculty members currently teaching in community colleges as part of the education faculty's new concentration in community college teaching.
