Complex media Games preparations underway By GEORGE STEPHENSON Herald Staff Writer A media corps of about 200, a com- plex system of results com- munication, tons of camera equipment, lighting and teletype will help carry color, pageantry and results of the Winter Games to the rest of Canada. Results of Games' events will be sent across Canada by The Canadian Press wire service. Results will reach CP from each event site by telecopiers in each town. Doug Dunlop, Games' public relations boss, says results can be on their way across the country within 10 minutes of an event's conclusion. The Canadian Press, a national news gathering organization, will have some 20 writers and photographers covering the Games. Probably the most visible organization covering the sports will be the CBC television and radio crews, both French and English. Ernie Afaganis, CBC coverage organizer, said the national network will be in Southern Alberta with its two largest mobile television units from Winnipeg and Edmonton. Live coverage on national televi- sion will be about 10 hours, plus video-taped coverage from previous events. Regional CBC television will carry an extra hour per day sports time from the Games, he said. The Southern Alberta event will be covered more extensively by radio than any other previous events, with the CBC carrying 40 hours of live programming on its radio network. The CBC is taping a show for Feb. 10 on planning and preparation of the Games. A two-hour wrap-up show will be aired on the last day of the event in conjunction with closing ceremonies, Mr. Afaganis says. A major problem the television network has encountered is the lack of lighting in buildings where the events will be taking place. The camera crews will have to lug around extra lighting to make it possible for camera crews to shoot the events, he adds. Sport Canada, with the co- operation of The Herald, will be printing a small newspaper for the athletes, coaches and Games' spec- tators. The morning paper will print results and Games' features prepared by Sport Canada writers and printed with The Herald's facilities. Mr. Dunlop says the paper will be delivered to each Game site and can be obtained free by spectators attending each event. Games torch parade arrives The first torch parade to cross Canada arrived in Southern Alberta today. The torch, heralding the upcoming Canada Winter Games, rolled into Medicine Hat. Torch processions have preceded previous Games, but this parade, marking the third Winter Games, is the first to cross the country in winter. The torch will visit Edmonton, Calgary, Jasper and Devon, site of Games ski jumping activity, before returning to Lethbridge Feb. 11. During a three-day swing through Southern Alberta before the Games of- ficial opening here Feb. 11, the parade will visit the following communities: Feb. 8: Claresholm, 11 a.m.; Blair- more, 3 p.m.; Pincher Creek, p.m.; Standoff, p.m. and Fort Macleod, p.m.; Feb. 9: Picture Butte, noon; Coaldale, 2 p.m.; Bow Island, p.m. and Taber, p.m.; Feb. 10: Raymond, 10 a.m.; Magrath, noon and Cardston, 3 p.m. Don't sell public land man tells forum LCC may become test centre By MURDOCH MACLEOD Herald Staff Writer A tri-province council governing the Agricultural Machinery Institute will negotiate final arrangements for use of space at Lethbridge Community College as a farm machinery' testing centre. Harold Homer of Regina, chairman of the Agricultural Machinery Institute Council and a former Saskatchewan deputy minister of agriculture, said Tuesday a committee was named to talk to College President C. D. Stewart. He made the state- ment at a news conference following a day of meetings at the college. The institute will have its main centra at Humboldt, Sask., with satellite centres in Manitoba and Alberta, he said.

PERSONAL GROWTH PROGRAMS 327-5724 CLIFF BLACK, BLACK DENTAL LAB MEMCAlKNTttMM. 317-2122 want a choice between the co- op and Palm said Coun. Pitcher. "They are afraid this is the first stage of a monopoly here." Coun. Pitcher said, "I don't feel one should legislate in favor of one business against another. I am all for retaining this industry in our town and building it up though." He said the co-op will have to "pull up its socks, do a little bit of advertising and provide a better service." A lot of people have said they will go to Lethbridge to buy their milk, he said. This thing could backfire. Herman Moltz, manager of Palm Dairies Ltd. of Lethbridge said his firm will make a decision as soon as he has had a chance to study the bylaw. Mr. Moltz said his dairy serves its wholesale accounts at Cardston twice a week. He said he does not have the figures immediately as to how much milk and dairy products Palm Dairies Ltd. sells at Cardston. Mr. Moltz said as far as he is concerned, the issue at hand is a matter of consumer selec- tion. He said, he simply puts his product in the store at a premium price and the choice of product is up to the con- sumer. Mr. Moltz said the Cardston creamery has all the advan- tages of lower price and a local industry. "If it can't get the consumer to back its product, that's its problem." Budget study date set The public s_chool board will meet. March 1 for a one-day study of the budget proposed for 1975. Superintendent Bob Plaxton suggested it would take at least one full day to review the budget proposals because about six or seven new programs will be included for board acceptance. Special -education for problem junior high school students, establishment of system wide standards, a family life proposal, driver education and a remedial reading program are some of the matters to be considered during the budget meeting. The trustees also agreed to change their first meeting in February to the first Tuesday in the month. The second meeting will be held Feb. 25. The change was made to ac- commodate the. 1975 Winter Games. under a Saskatchewan act which allows the Saskatchewan agriculture minister to co-operate with Alberta and Manitoba in organizing and financing the institute. The nine-member council includes a farmer, a representative of the imple- ment industry and a govern- ment representative from each Prairie province. John Murray of Lethbridge is the Alberta farmer representative. Jack Peck of Regina, secretary of the council and director of the institute, says the council includes members of the three regulatory provin- cial agricultural implement boards. They get comments on machinery from farmers, and so know which types of machinery need to be tested. Manufacturers can then get advice on improvements, said Mr. Peck. The centres will be able to test all machines except trac- tors, and may later expand to include them! Mr. Homer said the centres' first objective is to functionally test and appraise farm machinery. It will also assist in machinery development, particularly with smaller Prairie manufacturers lacking the benefits of a large engineering staff. Horse facilities requested MEDICINE HAT (Staff) planned facilities to avoid conflict between landowners, government agencies and horse users have been re- quested by the Four Seasons Saddle Club here. In a brief to the Alberta Land Use Forum public hearing, Thelma Renner of Medicine Hat said this becomes more important because there is already a lack of areas in which to ride horses at a time when the horse population is expanding. The only organized horse recreational area in1 Southeastern Alberta is the Cypress Hills Provincial Park, she said. Other areas for riding include ranches and farms owned by horse fan- ciers. With 120 members in the club and the backing of five other Medicine Hat clubs in addition to the Southern Alberta Equestrian Council a.nd Lethbridge area horse clubs, Mrs. Renner listed possible solutions, including: of adequate facilities in provincial parks. of historical trails for horsemen. Included should be overnight stop facilities. involvement to develop riding areas in river hills and valleys. n MEDICINE HAT (Staff) Public lands should t main unsold and should serve a multi-use purpose to j benefit all Albertans, Reuben Ehret of Hilda said in forum brief to the Alberta Land Use Forum here To make sure the public lands continue to economic contributions to the community and Alberta, they should best be used through lease with individuals and organizations, he Speaking before an overflow crowd of 75 in the Medicine Hat Provincial Building, Mr. Ehret said Ex provincial land use policy should be developed for Alberta which will guarantee the preservation and most efficient use of both public and private land., Provincial land is now second of 15 public hearings sponsored by the Alberta ed 54 per cent by the Use Forum to j and 46 per cent by individuals, e "an ideal balance."
