While city council Tuesday refused again to accept a list of suggested fines for viola- tions of a proposed new waste bylaw, the aldermen did indi- cate they will consider stiff penalties for those who allow garbage to fall from their ve- hicles en route to the sani- tary landfill site and for those who abuse the landfill opera- tion. Council was told, in a sub- mission from City Manager Tom Nutting, that two garbage inspectors have been appoint- ed. Both were already city employees. The inspectors are authoriz- ed to lay charges under the existing waste bylaw but have not done so because cumbersome court procedures are required, city engineer Bandy Holfeld told The Her- ald. Roy Mclntosh, one of the in- spectors and supervisor of the garbage truck crews, will approach resident who leaves wet garbage in open cardboard boxes or "presents his garbage for pickup in an improper container" and ask that the situation be improv-. ed, Mr. Holfeld said. The other inspector, Peter Gates, is authorized to give citations to drivers who carry garbage in their 'vehicles without tarpaulins covering the garbage. Mir. Holfeld said the new waste bylaw will be taken back to council at its next meeting with toned-down amendments, but be would not elaborate. "The bylaw is not intended as a witch he said.

The five -calves have all topped a thousand pounds now and one is over pounds. Yet each animal obediently follows its owner when led around the barn. Myrna explained that care- ful records are kept on the calves. Data in the record books include how much each calf is fed, bow much weight it gains daily and how much gained per month. When the calf is sold, the owner knows how much profit he made from raising the calf. The 4-H program teaches the young people responsibi- lity, since the calves require daily attention. It gives them a sense of business, for they are concerned with profits and losses. They also learn about the agriculture indus- try from doing rather than observing, and many young farmers get their start in 4-H.

The biggest threat at the moment comes Xroiii the thi- stle which only three weeks ago was being claimed a boon for fanners. The pest, last was seen in Alberta in 1958, starts its life by eating thistle plants and other weeds. This year, many crops have been damaged by the butterfly with insecticide spraying used as a control measure in some areas. Neil Holmes, head of the crop entomology section of the Lethbridge Research Sta- tion, said today the caterpil- fer stage of the pest is now Changing into the butterfly stage. With proper conditions, an- other outbreak of caterpillars could occur within a month, said Dr. Holmes. The predicted record out- break of grasshoppers in Al- berta has failed to material- ize. Dr. Holmes said there was a heavy batch early in June but the ensuing cool, wet weather has put a damper on the outbreak. Damage was reported in the Acadia Valley in east cen- tral Alberta and some crops have been sprayed. Many farmers have treated the roadsides and ditches to protect their crops. Dr. Holmes said although there is a considerable num- ber of grasshoppers in the country, .a good supply of in- secticide is easing concern about possible damage. The blister beetle has also been found in many legume crops in Southern Alberta this year. The beetle, in the first stages of its life, fesds on grasshopper eggs. But in its adult life the large, purple-colored pest at- crops tacks tegume crops such as faya beans. Dr. Holmes said the Bertha armyworms have started em- erging throughout the infested parts of Alberta. He said fanners should be- gin a close surveillance of their fields about Jury 15 for the armyworm. "If fanners can spot the armyworm soon enough, spray can be applied and damage can be, he said. The local district agricultur- ist should be contacted for control measures. Tree give-away program tightened by province E. S. P. FOX FOX (Leth.) DENTAL LAB ITD. 204 Medicel Dental Mdf. 9274565 Stricter regulations in the provincial government tree give-away program for fann- ers is designed to assure greater survival rates ior plant growth, the department of agriculture says. Fanners planning to.apply for trees to start oro'ectivc sbelterbelts must start land preparation early this year. The government requires that the land to be used for planting the trees must be summerfallowed for one year prior to planting. There will be an inspection of the planned site before any trees will be given to farm- ers. Also installed this year is a inspection fee charged at the time of application. This is in lieu of a per tree charge to cover handling fees as in past years. This year fanners have only from Sept 1 to Nov. 1 to make an application through the district agriculturist of- fices. In past years they could apply for trees up to Feb. 1 Dennis Stretch, assistant district agriculturist for the counties of Lethbridge and Warner, says application forms aren't available yet al- though supplies are expected soon. Further information can be obtained from the district agriculturist. South farmers eye north forage crops Large tracts of hay land in Northern Alberta could save the day for south farmers if the predicted forage crop shortage persists, according to officials of the provincial department of agriculture. Hay crops are flourishing in the Peace River district where the forage crops are part of the farm crop tion. The stands are very good and hot weather is needed to put a final touch on them, Al Reimer, regional director for Chamber seeks city tax office The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce has asked Prime Minister Trudeau to consider establishing a local informa- tion and service office of the federal income tax deparjt- ment.

PHONE ISIS in the present system, the let- ter says. The letter is in response to a request from the prime minister for comments on specific topics to be discuss- ed by the prime minister and premiers of fee four western provinces. A conference on Western Economic Opportunities has been scheduled for Calgary July 24-26. On the agenda are matters pertaining to trans- portation development, capi- tal financing and regional financial ture and rural life, industrial and commercial development and the western northlands. The chamber warned the prime minister the con- ference may become a po- litical fiasco, according to re- cent news releases, and urged the federal and pro- vincial spokesmen to place the interests of the country foremost. The chamber's letter touch- ed briefly on all points to be discussed at the conference. It said rail passenger ser- vice in the area doesn't exist; the chamber supports 'efforts ,to prevent further grain elevator and rail aban- donments "where detri- mental to die areas affected" and expressed concern over rail rate inequities. On air service, the cham- ber letter said there is a need to upgrade the runways and terminal facilities at Kenyon Field and to improve flight service. An air services study sanc- tioned by the city is expected to be ready soon. The chamber also asked that the 11 per cent sales tax on residential biiflding'mate- rials be removed. The letter asked that fed- eral regional economic pro- grams be continued but that care be taken to ensure bene- fits are distributed equitably throughout Canada. the ADA in the Fairview area, said in a telephone in- terview. Sherry Clark, regional di- rector for the ADA in South- ern Alberta, said hay supplies in this area could be critical before the year is out. He said it is only the carry- over stock of hay in the south which is keeping the situation from being serious. "Without some good produc- tion, the carryover stocks won't be sufficient to help the situation next he said. Mr. Reimer said some mers in the Peace River dis- trict have started cutting their hay crops although the crops won't be ready for gen- eral cutting for a few weeks. He said any farmer who can see a possible shortage of bay should notify the depart- ment of agriculture soon to place an order. Without orders for hay, farmers will resort to plow- ing down hay crops to save the expense of making hay bales. Mr. Reimer said farmers have been hurt in past years when subsidy programs were made available to fanners and then they got the hay from other parts of Canada. The lack of a hay process- ing plant, soon to be correct- ed with a plant at Grimshaw, is also hindering the farmers in the Peace River district, he said. Because of the prohibitive costs of transportation of the' hay prior to processing, American buyers are shying away from Northern Alberta, he said. Some farmers have even reported that they will sell their hay crops "as is" for per acre. At this rate, the buyer does all the work and pays the farmer for the hay on a per acre basis rather than a per ton CLIFF BLACK, BLACK DENTAL MBKAL DENTAL BLDO. Uwwr terel raONE M7-2M2 Super Special!
