Well, they don't make them like they used too! Too thin! They roll nice. But there's a tinny sound when you blink. I've been very sick with a chest cold caused by the cockle doodle doo virus. It's a new virus. Hits humorists who lay eggs. I got these pills. Take before meals and at bedtime. Go some capsules too. Pretty lit tie things two-toned. Take after meals and at bedtime Then I have my regular Vita- min C pills, my cod liver oi capsules and my cockledoodle doo cough syrup, shake well wake up and take a slug before sunrise. Hildegard took good care me. She caromed off my side of the bed at sunrise, saying wake up Grizzleguts it's time to lake your blackjack! Every time I took a deep breath the neighbor started work. We got chicken hawks scout- ing our neighborhood. The lady kitty-corner to our house came over to borrow some fresh eggs. I was crowing so bad one morning the kids woke up, said they hated living on the farm and wanted lo move to the city. Cockledoodle doo virus! It's no yolk! I hope you don't get it! I had so many pills inside me every time'I'd roll over. I sounded like ballbearings in a bed pan. Well, it's lunch time. Here's hoping for a piece of sponge cake to cut down on the patter of little pills. Take a deep breath now exhale slowly again! Beautiful you're still with us! Good night boys! Tomorrow's another day. Hospital addition dedicated CRANBROOK (SpeciaD- Tne 15-bed addition to the Oranbrook District Hospital ex- tended care wing recently was dedicated.

It got top prior- ity by the East Kootenay Re- gional Hospital board as a re- quirement for the whole area, and patients temporarily in acute care beds at Creston and Invermere are scheduled to ar- rive this week.

Alberta Gems: diamonds in the rough By ROSS GIBB Herald Newi Service TABER The potato future in southern Alberta looks prom- ising, says Taber district irri- gatioiiist Roger Moore following a recent meeting of the south- east branch, Agricultural Insti- tute of Alberta. The branch held a meeting at Vauxhall recently to investi- gate the current potato situa- tion. Three panel members from various branches of the indus- try gave 15-minule talks and answered questions. They were Edward J. Shim- bashi of Barnwell, south .Alber- ta Potato Growers' Association, E. E. (Butch) O'Donnell of Taber, director of the Alberta Potato Commission, and Dave Dyck, manager of Alberta Can- ning Company, Lethbridge. In their assessment of the sit- uation, all three agreed there is a strong need for risk capital at all levels of the industry. The processing industry is not being encouraged to build plants on the strength of over- seas markets. The grower is not able to bor- row on the strength of con- tracts alone as is the case in the United States. The current low point in salei will cause numerous experi- enced growers to leave UK in- dustry because of shortage of capital to carry them through. The older growers have weath- ered many similar storms In UK past. Protection for the struggling industry seems to be a "must" if it is to survive. The grading system must become more flex- ible if we are to prevent mini- mum standard surplus pota- toes from being dumped on the local market by neighboring U.S. states.

An exhibition game saw the Blainnore women chalk up a close victory over the Fort Macleod lassies when they blinked the red light four times to the visitors' two. The final game of the day saw the Crowsnest Pass Cas- cades defeat the Bellevue Mid- gets 6-2. It will resume at me Cole- man arena at 9 a.m. Jan. 29 when seven games will be played. Bellevue arena will see the final games on Sunday when nine games are slated be- ginning at 9 a.m. from eastern to western Canada at 69 cents while our cost of shipping east is for the same product, is less than fair. It is hoped that Bill C-176 will help to restrict some of this Intel-provincial movement of goods in a surplus situation, Alberta Canning has. increas- ed its production from tons in 1967 to an anticipated tons for the current sea- son, Its product is potato chips and their limitation is not mar- ket, but rather, a problem of by-product. If new ways are developed to utilize the by-pro- ducts, they will be able to in- crease production to more than offset the current difficulties being experienced by the de- hydrating industry. It was also pointed out that additional production per acre and reduced costs of inputs at Hit farm level would help put the industry in a more compe- titive position. .It would seem then that the industry is not in a surplus position. The grower must produce a high quality, large, uniform product with low sugar and high solids content. If the advertising people are able to make Alberta Gems a household word to replace Id- aho potatoes, the growers know they can produce a product second to none.
