RCMP Command Changes Sash, Man., Stocks Dwindle A change of command will take place today at the Leth- br'idge detachment of the RCMP. Inspector R. L. Purdy will re- linquish his post as inspector in charge of the Lethbridge de- tachment of the RCMP after spending four years here. He 'take up an administrative officer's position at RCMP headquarters in Ottawa. Insp. G. R. Gordon, 45, has arrived in the city and will as- sume the position vacated by Insp. Purdy. Insp.

Gordon has had pre- vious experience in British Co- lumbia but Alberta is a new area to him. Boost Seen In Barley Sales Canadian wheat board offi- cials said in Ottawa this mor- ning, Alberta farmers are hi prime position for upcoming barley sales. Apparently barley stocks in Saskatchewan and Manitoba are dwindling following the im- plementation of a 10-busheI supplementary quota hi late May and as the wheat board j endeavors to meet shipping commitments at Thunder Bay (formerly Fort According to the wheat board officials, Alberta did not re- ceive a similar supplementary quota for two reasons, one was because shipping costs are higher from Alberta, and the other was to avoid congesting Alberta elevators with barley which might restrict mo ment of wheat. An estimate July 8, on bar- ley stocks in elevators was 23 million bushels in Alberta, 14.4 million bushels in Saskatch- ewan, and 14.5 million bushels in Manitoba. Wheat board offi- cials believe Alberta's figure would be higher if farm stocks included, while Saskatch- ewan and Manitoba do not have much remaining on the farm. The wheat board also esti- mates as of July 8, than 62 per cent of all Canadian bar- ley has been delivered to ele- vators in all three provinces. (Alberta produces about 50 per cent of Canada's barley.) LONELY SWAN-The pools in Nikka Yuko Centennial Garden have until this summer, been enhanced by the restful presence of three lovely swans. Over the winter however, two of the swans died and the remaining one seems to enjoy the larger body of water of Henderson Lake to swim in. Occasionally it will return to the feeding station in tha garden, but cannot be coaxed to slay. There are no plans at present to encourage It to do so by providing a mate. NEW INSPECTOR G. R. GORDON, LEFT, AND INSP. R. L. PURDY 200 Hear 18 Briefs On Wilderness Act Hearing Suggests Tightening Up Bill 106 Bowman Centre In Laud Deal City Obliged To Arts For Quarters., Says Mayor Group By STAN FRUET Staff Writer A public hearing in Leth- bridge Tuesday on Bill IOC, an act respecting wilderness areas in Alberta, was directed mainly at strengthening the Bill. Mere than 200 persons at the hearing heard and discussed 14 written and four verbal briefs. The hearing committee com- prised eight representatives Mayor Andy Anderson saic Tuesday city council would have a "moral obligation" to provide other quarters for the Allied Arts Council should the Bowman Arts Centre be sold as part of a land assembly pro- gram. Council Monday gave ap- proval to land assembly which would take in the Bowman cen- tre (the old Bowman QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC 324 5th St. S.

At least two major concerns are said to be interested in the five acres of property. The Allied Aits Council, given a yearly grant by Hie city to operate the centre, took over the facilities in 1964. The council comprises 23 member groups, four of whom meet regularly in the centre. These are the Lethbridge Han- dicraft Guild, Oldman River Potters' Guild, Lethbri d g e Club and Playgoers of lethbridge. Meetings, rehearsals, exhibi- ALL FRESH 1970 MERCHANDISE tions and the council's summer program are held at the Bow- man. Alderman Vera Ferguson said the placing of the council in other quarters had been dis- cussed and "provisions will be made. The council will be well looked after." Although no estimation was given by either Mayor Ander- son or Aid. Ferguson for com- pletion of the land assembly, Aid. Ferguson said the Central School will not be available as pail of the program until the end of the year. Central School students are to be moved to Susie Bawden School. from the Alberta government departments of lands and for- ests, mines and minerals, and agriculture. Some of the main arguments against the BiE were: it doesn't give permanency to the areas to be designated as wilderness areas; doesn't explain clearly its intent and purpose; pro- vides the minister of lands and forests with too much power; contradicts itself; doesn't provide for an ade- quate management body; and it doesn't define wilderness areas properly. Another area of concern was whether the bill should be passed by an order in council The legislative assem b 1 y meets only once a year and if the Bill is not passed at the next sitting in the spring it could take up to two years. If the Bill were revised the only way it could be officially changed is by another act of the legislature. On the other hand, if the Bill were passed by an order in council, it could be done any Week of the year, Oii a i mendatior. from the minister lands and forests. The drawback rath this a rangement, it was is the council meets behin closed doors and could amen the Bill.

Mayor Anderson has said the exact terms of reference of the study should be made known following Wednesday's meet- ing. AH the briefs presented Tues- day in Lethbridge wanted as- surance that wilderness areas, once designated, would be pre- served. Those submitting the briefs felt the Bill must be passed by the legislature to resist eco- nomic pressures to turn the land to other use. Passage by order in council would only assure preservation until another order in council. The cut-off date for mining and drilling going on in an area which might become a desipated wilder ness area was discussed. The government officials said cut-off would be when the Act was passed but there would be no cut-off on any previous contracts. They would be allowed to continue until the lease arrangements ex- pired. The Lethbridge hearing on Bill 106 was one of several be- ing held in the province to ob- tain public opinion on the Act prior to the spring sitting of the legislature.
