The lows tonight -will be be- tween five and 10 below. UWe change is expected for tomorrow, as a high pressure area stretching from the Yukon to northern Texas continues to hang over the area. Students stranded Residents of Milk River had some unexpected visitors last last night 115 of them. That was the number of stu- dents who were stranded in Hie town after a raging blizzard forced cancellation of all but two school bus runs on the homeward trip. One bus made its regula trip to Cputts on the main high way, while another managed I complete only part of its routi before sliding into a ditch. Th driver and three students board escaped injury. All of the students who were stranded managed to find over night accommodation at the homes of students who live in Milk River.

STUBBS Do you still hear the old wives' tale that a child's height, at the age o[ two years, can be doubled to give that child's adult height? Well, just like so tm any other I pieces of well- I meant misinfor- B mation still circu- llating as "fact1 I this piece of non- k n o w 1 edge de- j serves to be shot _______I down, and for all time. This old 2x2 formula al- most always over-estimates the average child's height by from two to six inches. You see, using this old 2x2 a two- year-old baby girl who was three feet and one inch tall would turn out to be six feet two inches tall. Actual exper- ience shows that such a child will probably reach a height of five feet eight or nine inches as an adult. Stubbs Pharmacy is the place where your trade is always ap- Ipredalcd. Here at 1506 Avo. S., your doctor's prcsclp- .lion is filled for you just as last us careful dispensing will tallow.

Until now the press has been limited to on campus projects such as printing course calen- dars and texts. However, with the expected wide appeal of a new book, Southern Alberta: A Regional Perspective, its editor, Dr. Frank Jankunis plans to extend distribution off campus. The first copies of the book will be run off next week. The 120 page book consists of articles about various pects of this area history, resources and future develop- ment and was printed as Background for a non credit course in the university's con- tinuing education department. Dr. Jankunis, a geography jrofessor and director of the course, said copies of the book will be made available free to students in the course, school and public libraries in south- ern Alberta and to "import- ant people, whatever that means." Copies left over will be sold. "I guess what I'll do is take (he book to book stores in this area and say 'sell it.'

Unemployed here critical-Berlando Critical unemployment exists among Lethbridge area trades- men, says a building and con- struction trades council spokes- lan. Roy Bcrlando executive sec- retary of the United Brother- hood of Carpenters, local 846, says "it's a dirty rotten situa- tion" and is expected to get much worse by spring. Figures released by Mr. Ber- ando show that about 40 per cent, or more than 300 of the area's carpenters are out of work. An estimated 40 per cent, or more than 200 operating engi- neers are also unemployed in southern Alberta; approximate- y 100 electrical workers, or 15 >er cent of that trade are job- ess and 10 per cent, or 50 southern Alberta plumbers are out of jobs. The bright spot in the con- struction field are trailer plant workers. Family Dining Our Specialty!

Fernando E. Ricafort, direc lor and technical manager fi North American Integnatec Food Processing Co. Ltd., sal in a press conference Thunsda his company was continuin plans to be in full operation b UK middle of 1973. He suggested the plant ca parity of hogs killed pe year will be met three year after the start of operation. Actual plant location ha been narrowed to Lethbridg Taber, Bow Island or Med icine Hat. The consulting engineerin firm of Moriarity-Henderso Lee and Associates Ltd. of 127 3 Ave. S. has signed a contract to do the technics planning in consultation wii the principals. Involved in the operation o the primary industry level wi be sows contracted to many fanners as neccssar and eventually bus els of feed grain. All raw materials will contracted with producers Alberta. With tiie assistance of Wayn and Elmer Walker o[ Saska toon, partners in the projec and Dennis O'Connell, Lett bridge economic develop ment officer, Mr. Ricafort e plained what southern Alberta has which meets the needs his venture. "There is a lot of grain feee done by a private concern te city would control the rates he company could charge 'ell as setting collection stan- dards, particularly pertaining to health. Another alternative is mild in competition by offer ng two franchises, each with ts own district, and allow the companies to control th ales. Mr. Nutting said the prim motivation for the propose! change is to reduce the collec on rates paid by the taxpay rs. The revenue from this source s estimated at for 1972 3rd An. and 16th St. S. Salli 32I-4J39 Car Lot 331-4156 Residents are billed per month by the city to have their garbage picked up once a week. Mr. Milroy said a private franchise cannot collect the garbage at a lower rate than the city. Red Deer made the change- over in 1960 and still contracts out garbage collection to a pri- vate concern. The rates in that city are per stop per month for one collection each week. The city clerk for Red Deer told The Herald the operation is "very successful" there with one franchise. Part of any contract between Lethbridge and a private firm would require the firm to buy the city's collection equipment. In salaries for 16 CUPE em- ployees and one supervisor, the budget calls for an expenditure of The main factor in expecting lower rates through private col- lection is the firm's employees would not necessarily be union- ized. Board offers help BURDETT (Stall The Al. bcrta Hog Producers Marketing Board Thursday cleared the way for North American Inte- grated Food Processing Co. Ltd. to operate toward estab- lishing a WO.OOO-head hog slaughtering plant [or southern Alberta. The board will assist all pro- ducers who wish to enter a sup- ply contract with Fernando E. Ricafort, director and technical manager of the company. The board neither approves nor disapproves of the opera- tion it has taken a "hands- off" policy toward the proposed million plant and it's pro- posed million-per-year ex- port market. Wayne Smith, a director of the marketing board, said in an interview prior to a public fact, finding meeting here, that the board has cleared the way for any producer to enter into agreement in any forward con- tract with the company. A forward contract is a long- term arrangement with a set price for hogs to be supplied and purchased at a set rate. In order to keep lie market- ing board a reality, all hogs contracted1 to the slaughter company will have to be avail- able on the open market from Mr. Ricafort, before they can be killed and processed. "All of Mr. Ricafort's bogs will be sold on the open tele- type said Mr. Smith. "All hog buyers will have a chance to buy his hogs. "All 1he hogs contracted by the company will be identified on the teletype tape and Mr. Ricafort Trill be able to buy back Ms own hogs. "He will be able to set a sin- gle bid on the hogs so high that no other concern will be able to buy them." Apparently the company will have to pay the market board commission of 30 cents per hog bought through the system. Twenty-five cents of this goes to operation of board equip- ment, and five cenbs goes to promotion and-or research. Mr. Smith said the board also will stand with it's first state- ments about all assistance for producers in dealing with the complex operation of the com- pany. "We as a board will give arl- vice and legal help to any pro- ducer when said Mr. Smith. CLIFF BLACK, Certified Otnlol Mecnantt SLACK DENTAL LAB] Lower level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDC.
