Tirn Wheeler of Calgary said in the survey of camp facili- (ics she's making this summer in the three western provinces, improperly hitched trailers are a common sight. Trailers that do not sit level behind the vehicles pulling them are an obvious strain on hitches and are unsafe, she said. Miss Wheeler, public relations officer for the Canadian Mobile Home and Travel Trailer Asso- ciation, said the second most common error made by motor campers is allowing an improp- er weight to power ratio between the pulling vehicle and its load. There .should he at least one horsepower for every GO pounds pulled, she said. Another mistake is improper Lake.

The irrigalion dis- trict is responsible generally lor water on fields, while the county is responsible for water on roads. Mr. Janzen said be would probably put the 40 acres now under water, into production of sugar beets or grain, if drained. He turned down a proposal from Ducks Unlimited, a con- servation group, to leave Lhc area in its natural state for UF.C by ducks. Ducks Unlimited of- fered to pay him 595 a year compensation to leave the 40 acres alone. Mr. Thiessen said Eight Mile Lake is a natural low area of ground which is fed water both from natural runoff and from irrigation. To drain the entire lake would cost about he said. loading of recreational ve- hicles camper trucks, travel trailers, tent trailers and mo- bile homes, she said. Easy solutions to all these problems exist if operators would just ask for advice, she said. Miss Wheeler is camping throughout Saskatchewan, Al- berta and British Columbia to survey camper attitudes and available facilities. Information gathered will be used in recommendations to government and in the manu- facturing and sales of recrea- tional vehicles. The Canadian Mobile Home and Travel Trailer Association represents the manufacturers of 80 per cent of the recrea- tional vehicles and 90 per cent of the mobile homes built in Canada each year. The industry was the first to ask the independent Canadian Sfandards Association to draw up safety and quality require- ments. This year, Alberta, became the first province to require that all recreational vehicles manufactured and sold here carry the CSA seal of approval, she said. "What the CSA sticker means is that the product has at least met minimum standards. Many manufacturers go beyond that, just for quality and business sake." CSA requirements govern electrical, plumbing, gas and oil, and mechanical and struc- tural components. "Unfortunately, human thoughtlessness too often un- does all the excellent engineer- ing that goes into these units." An enthusiastic promoter of motor camping, Miss Wheeler said she will talk for hours to help someone with a problem or a complaint try to find a solu- tion. During discussions with camp- ers this summer, she said she is spending a lot of time to convince women to gel involved in operating camp equipment. trying I :t more ore campsites needed 100 FEET In 1885 original planners for the town o( LcthbriL'gd set forth specifications which called for streets and avenues in the new community to be 100 feet wide from property line to property line.

S. wishes fo announce they wiJf be closed from JULY 8 to JULY 22 INCLUSIVE Re-Opening Monday, July 24th Lethbridge needs twice as many serviced trailer camp- sites this summer as currently exist, says Miss Wheeler. She said when she stopped in Lethbridge overnight this week, she was forced to park her camper on the street be- cause the Henderson Lake campground was full. The caretaker at Henderson grounds. Henry Jenkins agreed with Miss Wheeler's1 assessment that the cily is short of camp facilities. There are spoLs at Henderson J Lake for 50 tents, 20 trailers I and sen-iced camper hook- ups, he said. During July and August another 20 serviced camper sites could be filled, said Mr. Jenkins. When Henderson Lake is fill- ed, campers are directed to a city-run campground on the west side of the Oldman River where there are about 70 camp- ing sites, hut none of them ser- viced. Miss Wheeler said in an in- terview that campers are will- ing to pay the extra charge for camp spots that provide hook- ups with water, sewer and elec- tricity. None of the provinces in Can- ada are keeping up with the de- mand for (his service, she said. Report realistic says Johnson The Worth Commission Re- port on Educational Planning is realistic not radical, says Carl Johnson, chairman of the Lelh- bridge pubb'c school board. "School trustees, as a group, will study this report as no re- port lias ever been studied be- he said. Mr. Johnson said everyone involved in education, including the general public, now has a responsibility to do something with the report.

"One of the duties of trustees will be to get out and talk to people and even lend our copies of the report to anyone who wants lo read them." He said the commission's recommendation for settling teacher contract disputes has definite possibilities. "I would be in favor of try- ing it out but I don't know what the teachers feel." Mr. Johnson said he sees "no reason why it couldn't be done here" in the upcoming teacher contract talks. He said if both sides put forth good positions in negotia- tions there shouldn't be much disagreement over the final se- lection, no matter which posi- tion is finally adopted. Mr. Johnson said one of the "soon to happen" results of the commission report should be the abolition of Grade 12 de- partmental examinations. There is no doubt in my mind that Grade 12 exams will he said. Mr. Johnson had high praise for the commissioners who pre- pared the report. "The that went into this report was above and beyond the call of duty."
