They appeared in court, re- ervcd plea and were released r. bail. They re appeared in court uly 10 and pleaded not guilty o the trafficking charge. The trial was again adjourn- ed to allow Judge L. W. Hudson ime to consider the evidence. Court was told the couple had icon married in California while they were on bail and waiting the trial. The Crown Counsel, Charles Virtue, told the court the stan- dard sentence given in Alberta :or a trafficking offense was two years. Virtue suggested the court might levy a heavy fine rather than a jail term for the young couple. Judge Hudson said he did not believe the pair were profes sional narcotics dealers. He said tie thought they had been naive and stupid in their actions. In passing sentence Judgf. Hudson said he was sorry thai lie had no other alternative bui to find the youthful couple guil- ty as charged. The judge also said if the couple had been charged with the illegal importation of drugs into Canada the minimum sen fence would have been years. Judge Hudson said he hoped the couple would tell ther friends the penalties they coul face if they were caught bring ing narcotics into Canada. The judge said drug arrests are increasing with frightful ra pidity at the Coutts and Carway border crossings and he hopec there was some way to inform persons of the risks they run bringing narcotics into Canada Blood council to consider application The Blood band council is meeting today to consider the appointment of an economic development officer for the re- serve. Only one application for the position was received, however, according to Ed Fox, band manager for the Blood admin- istration. Competition for the position to replace former economic de- velopment co-ordinator, Father Denis Chatain, was restricted to members of the Blood re- serve. Deadline was July 15. Mr. Fox noted there were nu- merous inquiries about the pos- ition from non-Indians. -THE 010 DAYS CONI ADDEDCHARMATWATERTWONDERLAND Robin Sato checks the work of Lethbridge Research Station per- sonnel at the Whoop-Up Compound during opening day activities. The circular display shows various crops grown in southern Alberta. Immediately behind the display is a garden flower arrangement and beyond this is the South- Whoop-Up compound ern Alberta Poultry Council work.

Manned by the Southern Al- berta Poultry Council and the Canada Department of agricul- ture, the stockade has never seen better days. Almost impossible to explain without writing a book, a typi- cal tour would start in the northeast corner with several displays of chickens and chicks at various stages of hatching. The modem incubator meth- od of hatching as compared to the old tried and true method of setting, shows the public the reason for southern Alberta poultry reaching the market to compete with the best in the world. The common exclamation Oh, look at that, I've never anything like it" doesn't -ome from any five-year-old ut from the child's mother first spotting a chick just coming from the shell.

Equipment for the modern 'ceding and watering of fowl shows some of the advance- ments in this area. An interesting display fa the actual difference noted in both chickens and tin-keys using 1934 feeding methods and 1971 meth- ods. The Canada department of ag- riculture has a picture display to the barn which depicts the growth of the poultry business. Lynn Johnston, home econo- mist at Pincher Creek and Jan- ice McLean, nutrition special- ist from Caigary, aided by six 4-H girls, use two booths to promote poultry products. Included in the booths are apricot drinks prepared with eggs and chicken dishes pre- pared in various ways. All the food prepared is used as samples for the fair-goers. Tickets are given to people each day for a draw on a tur- key. At 5 p.m. each day, Vern Olson, instructor at the Leth- bridge Community College, gives a demonstration on carv- ing turkey which has been bar- seeued in the booth. Swinging to the actual growth materials in the west rortion of the compound, re- search station personnel have arranged a flower garden dis- >lay. Potatoes, sugar beets, sweet corn, barley, wheat and bush jeans, in three sections to show he effects of irrigation and fertilizer application, indicate ihe technical advances in these areas. New turf varieties border the parking facilities. Arranged in a semi-circle in the centre of the compound is a display of forage crops, alf- alfa, soft white spring wheat, hard spring wheat, buckwheat, sunflowers, field corn, rape- seed, feed barley, malting bar- ley, sugar beets and potatoes. The LCC School of Agricul- ture display centres the ar- rangement. West of the irrigation dam is a display of fish farming, show- ing temperature differences af- fecting growth of fish, harvest sized fish, stockig fish and the various cultures used to grow fish. Identical fish, some in 45 de- gree water and some in 65 de- gree water show the time dif- erencc of three years for the same growth. Bees, grasshoppers and aphids are shown and how they affect agriculture, along south wall. A display of diseased and lealthy crops is included he area. The meteorological depart ment has set up the equipment used to forecast the picture at the east end of the wall. In the middle of the com- pound, the various methods of irrigation used in the southland are in working order. Signs de- picting the techniques make it simple for the tenderfoot to ac- knowledge these techniques. At the end of the tour, Ralph Trimmer and Bob Simmons have arranged a display of most of the products derived from crops grown on irrigated land in southern Alberta.

The Whoop-Up Days stage show, played Monday night to a crowd of about 800, had its full share of these overly-fam- iliar routines but happily was saved from fulsome mediocrity by the presence of two Cana- dian acts. Roily Hammond of Ottawa, a veteran of 14 years hi show business, was the hit of the 90- minute program with a ventri- loquist and sound impressionist trading repartee with an upstart, untoward Don- ald Duck dummy or reproduc- ing the sound effects of a male foghorn courting his ladyfriend boat, Hammond gave an act of intelligence and control. He knows how to tap an audience. act. Whether banjo-playing group which ranged the well-worn gamut from The World is Waiting for the Sunrise to Ain't She Sweet. The band, whose youngest member is about 11 years of age, gave an act which was not over-produced but friendly and straight to the point. The only thing missing was some solo work, and the end- ing was a bit ragged, but as one man in the audience said, banjo-playing "always gets me right in the heart." The main problem with the new Whoop-Up Singers and Dancers was lack of rehearsal, evident in that many of the 24 performers took time to recall their steps instead of bashing out their young and efferve- scent personalities.

The younger set made the jest impression in their back- up work with Ron Urban, magician-illusionist. Had the singers and dancers had more experience before crowds, they would have been able to concentrate on loosen- ing up, on smiling to their au- dience. There is no question however, that it was grand to see local talent being given a joodly share of stage time. The remaining four acts tend- ed to leave one feeling terribly jaded. Although professional, smooth and at times exciting, they all seemd to be going over old ground. The acts were the Amandis, a six-member comedy-acrobat act; Bill David, master of cer- emonies and comic-impression ist, Frenchy (Henry French" the international Clown am Ron Urban. David needs to update his im pressions, perhaps replac Dean Martin for Arthur God frey, tnd add voices of Cana dian personalities.
