Mr. McLelland pointed to a North Dakota study which shows that harvesting cereal crops for forage may be more profitable than harvesting them for grain, especially in seasons of severe drought and when wild oat infestations are high. A critical lack of moisture, combined with high tempera- tures and high winds, has re- duced opportunities for fann- ers to harvest good crops. The hay crops in Southern Alberta have also been below aver- age. Indicative of the problem is the formation of hay storage depots throughout the prov- ince by the Alberta Depart- ment of Agriculture. Mr. McLelland said the study shows wheat, oats and barley crops yield the high- est amount of dry matter (visible amount of forage ma- terial) when 'they are cut in the dough stage, just before the crop matures. Although this stage is late for the best quality hay, the moisture content at about 65 per cent is desirable for silage. The protein content for wheat and barley is also high- est during the dough stage while the protein count in oats is highest during the milk stage (slightly earlier in the growing Gty gets in provincial grants Barry Beglaw Quick action in the face of possible danger thwart- ed an atempt by two me.t fo hold up a mail truck last winter. Barry Beglaw was the truck driver and. for his efforts received a reward Wednesday from the federal govern- ment. He eluded the men, who were carrying pistols, and drove away without losing a letter. The incident happened at Brocket. Lethbridge received about in provincial govern- ment assistance grants this year out of a total of 000 dispensed so far to mun- icipalities. W. D. Isbister, deputy mu- nicipal affairs minister, said Wednesday about half of 295 eligible incorporated munici- palities have applied for grants under the province's property tax reduc- tion plan. The grants are made up of incentive .grants paid out to municipalities that keep their budget growth rate below TA per cent and of an assistance grant approved on condition of relative economic need tak- ing costs of services such as fire, police and rural roads into consideration. Under the grants formula, Lethbridge was eligible for a incentive grant and an assistance grant. Grants to other municipalities included to Edmon- ton, to Calgary and to Bed Deer.

A survey of fakgoers this week indicated the majority of the urban residents were in favor of the new format while rural Southern Alber- tans voiced some doubts about the move.

The fust city resident con- tacted, near the midway, was impressed with all aspects of the agricultural display, es- pecially Machinery Bow. He claimed the layout of the machinery made viewing much easier than in past years, and therefore more en- joyable. He enjoyed viewing an the booths in the Exhibition Pavilion and the cattle in the Whoop-Up Pavilion but add- ed, "I don't think I learned anything." Another city visitor to the Salvation Army food booth claimed the fair was missing something because it didn't offer the homemade pre- serves, vegetable and baking section. This portion of the was dropped four years ago because, according to fair officials, "The same people always entered the same things and the same people always won the same prizes." The food booth visitor sug- gested without the livestock portion of the agricultural section, .the homemakers competition should be brought back. She spoke favorably about the booths set up this year. A farmer from east of Monarch said there wasn't much available to interest rural people in the agricul- tural section.
