BLY Herald Staff Writer Everybody loves parades, but few know as much about them as R. Cleve Hill, par- ade -marshal for the Leth- bridge Exhibition for 29 years. "Every year for 29 years I've said I'd never do it Mr. Hill laughed. "But I guess now it's easier for me to do it than anyone he said in a Herald interview. Organizing a parade1 is more than planning a route and counting the entries. Planning for the Whoop-Up Days parade usually begins In February, Mr. Hill ex- plained. Invitations to parti- cipate In the parade are sent out to bands, communities, fraternal organizations and From the responses to the invitations, Mr. Hill tries to get a rough estimate of how many entries will be in the parade. But the Lethbridge parade does not require en- trants to register or pay an entry fee, and anyone can participate. Entries are accepted up until five minutes before starting tune, Mr. Bin said, although they may not get judged. "It's like producing a show and not knowing what you have until the curtain he said. "I do a lot of sweat- ing, I'll tell you." The Whoop-Up Days parade will operate on an budget this year. Twenty-nine years ago, Mr. Hill had a budget of about for die parade. Of that about will be spent in assisting 15 bands to come to the parade this year. "I remember when we had to sweat and fume to get five bands in the be said. "Now we can pick and choose." Although the Lethbridge parade has grown through the years, Mr. Hill is not in- terested in making it bigger, just better. "We'd rather aim for quality than he said. Mr. Hill Is assisted by about 30 volunteers, all un- paid. Half of these are judges from among the city's var- ious service clubs. Mr. Hill described the par- ade' as -the exhibition associ- ation's gift to the public. It is one of the few facets of Whoop-Up Days without any tangible financial, returns. It does bring people into the city and gets them in the mood for Whoop-Up Days, though, he said. Some people take advan- tage of the opportunity for advertising their businesses, Mr. Hill said. But done taste- fully, commercial entries add to the parade, be said, en- tertaining the public while explaining what goods or ser- vices each business has to of- fer. The parade has changed through the years. More horses -than ever participate in the Whoop-Up Days par- ade, Mr. Hill said, due to the booming light horse industry. But the heavy draft horses which used to be so much a part of tiie parade have all but disappeared. A greater number of pro- fessionally-built floats take part in parades now, he noted, and quite a few are shipped in by box car from other centers, something un- heard of in years past. "Some people have said Lethbridge crowds don't ap- preciate a good -parade be- cause they don't Mr. Hill said. "But I think it's a case of silent appreciation. I don't think the crowds In Lethbridge are any less ap- preciative than anywhere else." Mr. Hill feels that Leth- bridge has good parades, and gives credit to the support from the community and men like Stan Charles and Rod and Dick Murray who have assisted him for many years. When the parade gathers in North Lethbridge the morn- ing of Jury 16, Cleve HOI win be there directing it, doing his best to make sure even loves his parade. Sheep plant locates at Innisfail By EIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer Alberta's producer- owned sheep and lamb slaughter and processing plant will be located on a 32- acre parcel in the Innisfail industrial park area. The land has been sold to Lamb Processors Co-op Ltd. on a tentative basis subject to approval from the provin- cial health of depart- ment. Shares valued at each were first offered to the pub- lic at a meeting in Lethbridge March 13. To date 600 shares valued at have been sold to 533 parties. The Alberta Sheep and Wool Commission is now engaging the services of an engineer- ing firm to carry out the pro- ject design, Gordon Wells, livestock supervisor for sheep for the Alberta Department of Agriculture, said Friday. Mr. Wells told The Herald in a telephone interview that the majority of the response has come from Calgary north to the Peace River district. He said the greatest single response generated to date ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Sthmnta 222 5th St. f. Phone 3284095 MOVING? OWEN AGENTS FOR ALLIED VAN LINES has been hi the Pincher Creek region. In order to reach the ob- jective of in produc- er and public funds, the co- operative expects from the Canada Sheep Marketing Council. The. Innisfail Industrial De- velopment Co-operative, own- ed by the town and district residents, is helping by try- ing to sell another worth of shares, said town manager George Redlich. Mr. Wells said shares win continue to be sold. All Hut- terite colonies in Alberta which raise sheep either have or will buy shares in the pro- cessing co-operative, it is ex- pected. The site of the plant was selected by interest shown by the various areas and the po- tential for sheep production. Presently Southern Alberta is the sheep raising centre of Western Canada but very little response was shown from the most of the area. About 35 new jobs wfll be created in Jnnisfail by the plant, making it the largest business in the town. The only pressure the plant will put on town facilities will be the sewage system, he said. When the plant is built, the town will have to expand the lagoon system a year sooner than expected. Mr. Wells said be hopes more producers will become involved in the plant in the future. Officials won't go door to door to sell shares but they win be available throughout the province. "Once the producers find they have an afly in the pro- cessing sector, they win be- come more said Mr. Wells. "If the plant really starts to make money, the share- holders wiU reap good patron- age dividends." 2 city firms will supply Sportsplex concrete Two city firms will work together pouring the concrete for the 1975 Winter Games Sportsplex.

"On balance, it seems Al- berta is a more realistic and efficient base for council op- erations front two important standpoints meat produc- tion and consumption.
