Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 17, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, January 17, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 1 1 _m ft 1 t Willow Creek District I Mme between Sparwood, Ferme tables radio purchase By D'ARCY RICKAKD Herald District Editor CLARESHOLM The Willow Creek Municipal District council Wednesday tabled its proposal to purchase a radio com- munications system for its office, shop and road equipment. Council decided to wait a month or two for more budget information on capital projects. It is already com- mitted to expenditures totalling about for a road grader and computerized office accounting equipment. Council favored a tender by the Canadian Motorola Electronics Company for the radio com- munications system. It calls for 14 Mocom 35 radios, a base station and a repeater station for The installation fee is said Rod Dewar of Calgary, Motorola representative. He said his company's engineers have designed a communications system for the MD that involves the use of a forestry tower located in the Porcupine Hills as a repeater station. At the foot level, the tower would pick up radio signals, boost and repeat them, to give the communication setup a 90 per cent coverage of the MD. Favoring purchase of the system, Coun. John Zoeteman of Fort Macleod said, "You are looking at a 10-year program so it breaks the cost down quite a bit when you look at it over a period of years." General Foreman Dave Petersen said the radios would be a real convenience but the money could be spent on other equipment the MD needs as much or more. Council also considered an eight year rental contract of radio equip- ment from Alberta Government Telephones for and a tender for a 14-radio system from Genelcom Limited of Edmonton for ACT has its own tower at Granum. Councillors wondered if the Willow Creek school division would want to share about worth of base equipment and purchase its own radios for school buses over an extended period. One reason council was hesitatnt on the purchase was its tax collec- tions seem to be ebbing lower. About 35 per cent of the MD ratepayers are paying their taxes a year late. The provincial inspector said in a report: "the foregoing indicates that steps should be taken to collect a greater percentage of the tax levy so the financial condition of the MD can be improved." "There is only one way we can do said Reeve George Whitehead. "Step Our penalty up Jan. 1. That is the only way we can do it." The reeve added that council must tell the annual ratepayers meeting how it plans to step up the collection of taxes. Said secretary treasurer Ruben Hartfelder: "The price of cattle hasn't really helped the paying of taxes." The provincial inspector's report is based on the fiscal year Jan. 1 to Jan. 1. Airport improvements okayed TABER (HNS) Several recommendations of Taber's airport administration com- mittee were approved by town council Monday. Two yard lights will be in- stalled at the airport one on the public parking area and one at W. T. Aviation's shop area. The monthly charges will be split between the town and W. T. Aviation, though Mayor Arthur H. A very voted against the town paying anything for the area lighting. The entrance road into the airport property will be fenc- ed out with four barb wire construction, to keep un- authorized traffic off the runway and parking apron. The work, estimated at will be done as soon as con- ditions permit. Council agreed to appoint Wray Tsuji of W. T. Aviation Services Ltd. as airport manager with authority to control vehicular and pedestrian traffic on the property a move to eliminate vandalism which has taken place two of the marker lights have been destroyed or stolen in recent weeks. Also agreed was a per front foot per annum lease fee for lots at the airport. Council was advised of increasing ac- tivity by local flyers at the airport, and the imminent construction of private hangars at the parking apron. It was noted that the third annual fly-in breakfast will be held at the airport Sunday, June 22. The date was changed from June 15 so that the ministry of transport air traf- fic control facilities could be on hand. Explorer speaks of Eskimo life at Willow Valley Trophy session By VERN DECOUX Crowsnest Pass Bureau LUNDBRECK Arctic ex- plorer Dr. G. W. Kerr of Calgary thrilled a gathering of big game hunters here with his accounts of life with the Eskimos on islands northwest of Greenland. Speaking to about 300 members of the Willow Valley Trophy Club at its 26th annual trophy judging event here this month. Dr. Kerr said that within the next 50 years most Eskimos would be so depen- dent on modern conveniences they would not be able to sur- vive in the North on their own. Civilization is creeping farther and farther into the North, threatening the customs and existence of Eskimos, he said. He spent days in the islands northwest of Greenland. Eskimos lived on some of the islands more than 400 years ago and then STOKES SEED CATALOG 1300 Vegetables Flowers. Old favorites cxclusives from England, Europe, South America. Send Today!

Eskimo families grouped when they sighted a whale. They herded the mammal into a bay. Then with their crude boats they blocked the entrance to the bay. When the tide went out, the whale became landlocked and was slaughtered. Whale ribs were used to build shelters. Several rjr- were erected in a base of stones. The structures were covered with skins. Dr. Kerr showed a six foot fishing spear used by Eskimos. His musk ox horns, said to be the third largest set in the world, were found in 1970 on Prince of Wales Island. He also showed a musk ox wool rug. He collected the wool himself in the Arctic. It is valued at about an ounce. Dr. Kerr is a government geologist. In trophy events, Laverne Block of Monarch won the Ed and Babe Trophy for the best big game entry, a superb antelope.

The study is scheduled to be completed by next June. Kaiser Resources and two Japanese partners, Mitsui Mining Company and Mit- subishi Corporation, formed Kaiser Coal Canada Ltd. Darrell Bodie of Kaiser Resources, in charge of the feasibility study, said Wednes- day the mine is planned for a yearly production capacity of some 1.5 million to two million tons. How long the mine will operate is a question that must be based on questions of economic return. "As you well know, there is a tremendous amount of coal. This is just a small section of it." The mine will be on ridges that run north and south between Sparwood and Fer- me. Although there are two Japanese partners, the coal is not dedicated to any one market. Now that field work has been completed on the study, the next step is to tally all the figures and ascertain whether the project is economically feasible. A new coal cleaning plant to handle the mine's production is expected to be built in the Hosmer area. Darrell Bodie of Kaiser Resources is in charge of the feasibility study. Exploration is taking place in the Hosmer and Wheeler Ridge area. It is not known ex- actly where the mine or plant may be located. About 500 people will be employed if the project wins approval. Approval for the mine development and for the ex- port of coal must be obtained from the B.C. department of mines. Kaiser Resources received 70 per cent ownership interest in exchange for 50 per cent of the capital required. In August, the participants invested in the pro- ject, of which Kaiser put up Additional capital will be required before the study is completed. Substantial capital, as high as million would be re- quired to develop the mine and build a new plant, one source said. Beet farmers worry over fertilizer pricing TABER (HNS) A concern for the availability and price of fertilizer was among resolutions passed at the Taber Barnwell beet growers' annual meeting Saturday, attended by some 100 growers at the Taber Centre auditorium. Resolutions call on the central board to protest to manufacturers the high prices, which farmers blame on the increasing price of natural gas; to ask the federal government to subsidize the farmers from the taxes collected and to investigate the reported shortage of nitrogen fertilizer. The central board, through the annual Alberta beet growers' convention, may re- quest the senior governments to allow investments and savings interest to rise with inflation. A final resolution will seek the 1976 annual meeting of Alberta growers for Taber now that facilities at the Heritage Motor Hotel are ade- quate. The 1975 meeting at the El Rancho in Lethbridge Feb. 5 and 6 will mark the 50th an- niversary of the association and the production of beets in southern Alberta. A banquet and dance will be held on the 5th. Taber Barnwell growers returned central directors Burns W. Wood and Jerry Kuryvial of Taber and Peter Vanden Dungen of Vauxhall. Local board members return- ed to office are Mike Putici chairman, Edward J. Shim- bashi vice chairman, Miles Pavka secretary treasurer and Rudy Gregus. Other directors are Leslie J. Chomany. and Mike Truyaert. Besides the directors, the gorwers named 30 delegates to the annual meeting and seven alternates. Director Chomany was named to represent the growers on the native drop in centre committee in Taber which operated successfully last year. Reports presented at the meeting concerned the price of sugar, the general crop situation, and the use of labor in the beet fields. Growers were told that acreages in the east portion of the district have been reduced, with a resultant 000 acres harvested. This is to be increased by acres, mostly in the Vauxhall area. Increased interest is due to the prevailing price of sugar. Growers also learned that their "very favorable" contract with the processor resulted in a price of about per ton for the 1973 crop. This compares favorably with the to received by Manitoba growers and paid Montana growers. In order to meet rising costs of administration, the growers' fee has been increas- ed from 8 to 14 cents which supports local, provincial, and national growers' organizations. Last year reflected a change of growers' attitude to more scientific production practices. Of some acres, were thinned with electronic thinners and acres were "planted to stand" requiring no thinnning. Colored seed is being introduced in order to check seeding placement in the rows. Officials reported a total of Indian laborers in the fields, earning more than million from their work on 768 acres. In addition, acres were worked by farm families, 446 were done by non Indian labor, and 832 acres were done by machine.
