"We are aiming at plus people and with this dis play there is something for al of them." Mr. Chessor said people can see animals in their natura state which they have only rea( about before. "All the exotic breeds are on display and it is a chance for the public to have a look at them- "The same applies to sheep and hogs and all the animals are shown in various stages oi development." The animals are all placec into categories in separate pens for the public to view from al! The other part of the experi- ment demonstrates to people the various stages of develop- ment right from the animals in infancy through the adult stage to the finished product available for the table. In a monumental feat of or- ganization, the committee re- sponsible for the project has arranged displays which depict all the areas of the livestock business. There is a sheep shearing demonstration slated for several times during the day. Desmond De Belle of Australia has been lired to do the demonstrating. Having a fast time of about one minute and averaging 3V4 minutes, he shows the public what happens when a sheep is shorn. With experience in New Zea- land, Australia, Britain, France, ihe United States and Canada, he makes it look simple. There is a hog selling telex system working in one part of ie pavilion. For the more commercial end of display, there is a dairy section set up on the west side, ncluding the Alberta Dairy Princess. A complete line of dairy pro- ducts, including the old fash- ioned churning of butter and making of ice cream is on dis- jlay, with samples for the fair- ping public. Two barbecues manned by the Canadian Western Natural las Company and aided by 4-H are kept busy cooking ham and beef for display samples for the public. The wool industry is well rep- resented with a display which ncludes rugs, hides, sweaters, .carves and different wools as veil as information fact sheets. Behind this area is a display of the finished beef products. Entertainment has been sup- .ilied daily with the West Ger- man Band and The Edmonton All Girls Drum and Bugle Band aving played Monday.
