The tunnel has a number of names on campus, nol all of them polite, but it is a popular feature when winter winds whip the wind chill temp eratures down below the level of human endurance.

By HON CALDWELL ilcrald Staff Writer The Lethbridge Community College will likely become the Alberta terminal of a Prairie farm implement testing net- work which may be undertaken jointly by the three Prairie governments. The proposed project would he centred in Regina with sat- ellite stations in Lethbridge and Winnipeg if the recommenda- tions of an Intel-provincial study committee are adopted. The main purpose of the proj- ect is to lest and evaluate the various aspects of new farm machinery it goes on the retail market. The report cited "excellent physical facilities, diversified farming and a long open sea- Bon which would permit field testing over extended periods" as the main factors in the rec- ommendation that LCC be named as the test site. Winnipeg was recommended because nearly 70 per cent of all farm machinery in Western Canada is produced in the Man- itoba capital and Regina was suggested as the main cog in the wheel because Saskatche- wan farmers purchase most of the farm "machinery produced in Western Canada. Dr. C. D. Stewart, president of LCC, said he is excited that the college stands a good chance of becoming the AUjer- ta location for testing. "It's quite an attractive tiling as far as the college is con- cerned it will make us bet- ter known as an agricultural he said. "We are already talking about getting into agricultural mechanics this fall and if the testing depot is located here, it certainly would enhance our chances for expansion of our agricultural programs." Dr. Stewart said the centre would also have widespread in- direct effects on other farm- related courses at LCC. The total capital budget ol the facilities is estimated at District youths win 4-H trips million while the annual op- erating budget would be about Alberta's share would be 35 per cent, Saskatchewan would pay 45 per cent and Man- itoba, 20 per cent. The committee also estimates the three centres would test about 20 prototypes a year with the manufacturers paying 500 for the testing of a new farm machine. The three centres would have a staff of 47 with an annual salary budget of The report has been present- ed lo the three provincial gov- ernments for study. It's expect- ed the matter will be discussed in the fall legislature sessions. ANOTHER GARDEN There is still time to plant another crop of vegetables in the garden. Now that radishes and leaf lettuce are harvested, try planting some more for for late summer harvest. As a good cultural practice, to de- crease disease and insect losses, rotate plantings. For example, where root crops had previously grown (radishes) now plant leafy crops such as lettuce and spinach. Where early summer salad had grown, plant rad- ishes, beets, carrots and per- haps turnips and rutabagas, if the homeowner is prepared to offer a little protection should there be a very early frost. Be sure to water the seeds in well.
