Miss Jensen, sponsored by the Taber Kiwanis club, was one of six Taber and district girls vying for the honor of festival queen. Her prizes include $100 cash, an expense paid trip to Vancouver for a National Hockey League game and the use of a 1971 automobile for one year. Runner-up to the queen is Mrs, Merle Jespersen, also of Taber. "'hoto by Walter Kerber Marketing push on, says Strom By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Farm Writer TABER - Government is apparently going to spend less time and money helping farmers do what they already know how to do, and more on cultivation of domestic and foreign markets, according to Alberta's Premier Harry Strom. Mr. Strom, speaking here last night said 1970 will go down as a tough year for Alberta farmers, but indications are that the future holds more promise. He said some revamping of of the provinces' system may be needed, suggesting it would be unwise for Alberta to strike out on its own in establishing trade offices in foreign countries. Such a trade office was established in Japan last year, with the purpose of promoting commodities produced in Alberta. "The federal government already has facilities in foreign countries staffed with people anxious to work in unision with the province. "The utilization of these offices would make for better use of present resources." Mr. Strom added that the services of Alberta's firat appointed trade commissioner, Harry Hargrave will continue to be used. Mr. Hargrave has recently returned from a trade mission of southeast Asia. He is scheduled to tour Europe sometime during 1971. Mr. Strom, also commented on recent trade embargoes declared by several provinces on some agricultural commodities. SMILEY'S PLUMBING SEMENT BATHROC REMODELLING Phen* 328-2176 He said that at a meeting of the premiers of the three Prairie provinces held recently in Winnipeg, it was agreed that regulations hindering free produce movement between the provinces should be removed at once.

The event was first held in 1988 when the Auctioneers' Association of Alberta declared Feb. 1-6 Charity Week. Since the inception of the charity auct ions, the auctioneers have donated a total $103,-850 to Alberta's 20 retarded chil-drens' associations. Le� Handley, Coaldale, director of the southern Alberta region, says all donations and assistance will be gratefully ac cepted. Persons wishing to con tribute items for auction or help in other ways, may contact any auctioneer or member of the Southern Alberta Association for the Mentally Retarded. Campaign plans for this year's auction will be completed at a joint meeting of the auctioneers association and the Lethbridge Association for the Mentally Retarded, Sunday, 7 p.m. in the Park Plaza Motor Hotel.

"very real problem." By JIM MAYB1E Herald Staff Writer The final draft of the sewerage service charge bylaw is to be presented to city council Monday with a recommendation it be adopted immediately. Some major changes to the original proposed bylaw are being made to give industry the incentive to clean up their wastes and give the new secondary sewage treatment system a life of about five years. City Manager Tom Nutting is to inform council that the proposed bylaw is valid to the extent that it is adopted by no later than February to give industry a chance to institute pre-treatment this year to prolong the life of the new plant. The bylaw fixes the sewerage service charge at $2 a month per residence 20 cents per 100 cubic feet and 13 cents per 100 cubic feet of effluent for industrial and commercial users. The present rate is $1 a month for residences and seven cents per 100 cubic feet for industry At the recommended rates residential users would contribute $241,000 and commercial and industrial users $205,000 to pay the $446,000 yearly capital debt charges for primary and secondary sewage treatment facilities. Operating costs, estimated at $190,000 this year, would come from all taxpayers at the rate of 1.5 to 2 mills, likely decreasing as the rateable as sessment in the city increases, A system of surcharging industry on quality and quantity of effluent is designed to pro- vide an incentive to reduce the amount of suspended solids, grease and biochemical oxygen demand in their effluent. A funded reserve created by the quantity and quality loading formula provides a further incentive to industries which are not able to see their way clear to installing pre-treatment facilities prior to the proposed Jan. 1, 1972 effective date of the bylaw. Fifty per cent of the surcharge paid by an industry into this fund for up to three years may be reimbursed to that industry for the construction of city-approved pre-treatment facilities. The quality surcharge will be applied when limits of 600 milligrams per litre of suspended solids, 500 mgs per litre of Liquor store nearing completion No opening date has been set for the new self-service liquor store in downtown Lethbridge. The contractor still is working inside the building, an official said, and no liquor stock has been moved in. "While the contractor appears to be Hearing completion, the store doesn't have to be turned over to us until March 1. There have been indications we may get it sooner but I've received nothing official on that." BOD and 150 mgs per litre of either soluble grease are exceeded. If industry cleans its effluent up to meet these limits no surcharge will be applied on quality. A major change in the final draft is institution of a formula to apply a surcharge on quantity flows. The formula is designed to equalize flows from a plant over a period of time longer than the normal eight-hour shift. If a plant shoots its daily effluent out in an eight-hour period at a rate exceeding 250,000 cubic feet a mohth, a rapidly accelerating surcharge is applied. If all the plants in the city discharged thdr effluent over the same eight-hour period the secondary treatment plant would require expansion as soon as it was operating. An example of how the quantity formula works uses a local industry which consumes 900,-000 cubic feet of water a month. Effluent released over an eight-hour period would cost the firm 30 cents per 100 cubic feet of water. If the same effluent was discharged over a 12-hour period it would cost the company 13 cents per 100 cubic feet, the minimum rate. The surcharge is to encourage the construction of im- THREE FOR MINOR HOCKEY WEEK - Minor Hockey Week in Canada and Lethbridge in particular gets under way today. Helping to make the week a big one are these three athletes. From the left are Mayor Andy Anderson, who hung up his skates for political life a few years back, Ian Ennis of the Pee Wee Tigers and Myles Fox of the A.C.T. Bantam Reps. Mayor Andy Anderson officially opened Minor Hockey Week in Lethbridge by dropping the first puck apd then took his place among the spectator stars of the game. Police carrying shotguns said inilikely at Lethbridge The Lethbridge city police have access to and train with shotguns, but there is "little likelihood" they will ever be carried in patrol cars. In response to a decision by the Winnipeg police commission to allow police cruisers to carry shotguns, Lethbridge police chief James Carpenter said, "We've had shotguns for many years. "We train with them but they CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAE lower level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. PHONE 327-2822 are under direct control of the inspectors." He said the department had moved away from the use of high powered rifles because of the ricochet factor and the long carrying distance of the high powered bullets. "The. range of a shotgun is limited and there is little possibility of injuring a by-stand-er as compared to the use of a rifle," he said. "I don't think the shotguns will ever be installed in the patrol cars."

NDP meet postponed The Lethbridge New Democratic Party association has postponed a provincial nomination meeting for East and West Lethbridge ridings to at least the end of March. The meeting was originally scheduled for Wednesday at the Labor Club. The association decided Friday night to hold off the meeting until one prospective candidate could settle his job situation before deciding to run. Three men have already entered the race for the two nominations: Leslie Howard, city accountant; Charlie Buijert, Herald printer; and Glen Gillespie, construction worker..

Dr. Darcel will talk on avain tumor viruses. poundment structures to equalize flows, reducing peak requirements at the secondary and primary sewage treatment facilities and reducing the need for immediate expansion. Another major change is � provision that the minimum monthly billing be not less than 10 per cent of the maximum monthly billing assessed at 13 cents per 100 cubic feet. The original proposal was that this factor be set at 75 per cent which, it has since been felt, would be unfair to some indus-tires, especially the food processing business, which may be busy for only a few months of a year. The only funded reserve that is established in the final draft is for the quality and quantity surcharge formulas. If the new facilities can last five years, the reserve will pay or help pay for expansion after that time. Industrial consumers will be required to install at their expense sewage measuring meters through which all sewage must pass. Where a large pro-tion of water taken into a plant is not discharged to the sewerage system, such as water for the Sick's Lethbridge Brewery garden, a separate meter would be required and the firm would not be assessed a sewerage charge. Mr. Nutting is to emphasize that rates can be reduced in direct proportion to any additional grants or forgivenesses of repayment on loans received by the city in the next few months. However, the surcharge formula "cannot be altered since even an indication that such alteration is possible would have the effect of nullifying any incentives. The incentives are imperative to guarantee the effectiveness and capacity of our plant, even in 1972." If industry does no pretreat-ment, almost immediate expansion of the secondary sewage treatment facilities would be required at an even greater financial burden to the city and citizenry.
