Handicapped study being conducted A survey, designed to find out tbe needs of handicapped people in such areas as education, accommodation end transportation, is being conducted in Lethbridge by the Canadian Paraplegic As- sociation under the guidance of Gerald Trechka.

Reg. 26.95 Special Call Housewam 327-3767 DOWNTOWN In liquid feed Answer to hay shortage By RIC SWfflART Herald Staff Writer Tbe management of Can- ada's only liquid feed supple- ment plant says it has an ans- wer to hay shortages and es- calating protein based feed prices. Located in Lethbridge, Na- tional Liquid Supplement is selling a product" which it claims will revolutionize the livestock feeding industry, both at tbe farm and feedlot levels. Alf Rasmussen, plant oper- ator, is in charge of the six- ton capacity mixing tank, filled with ingredients which are mixed in 15 minutes. Tbe plant is capable of making tons of liquid supplement per year operat- ing eight hours per day. By selecting one of two ra- tions, Mr. Rasmussen can push buttons to add UK right amount of urea for protein, molasses and phosphoric acid. INGREDIENTS The urea is purchased from Fort Saskatchewan and the molasses from Canadian Sug- ar Factories Ltd. in Taber. The acid is brought in from tbe United States. Trace minerals are added according to tbe ration devel- oped by tbe company. Plant manager Terry Bracken says the liquid sup- plements, used to add nutri- tional value to ruminent stock feeds, will mean savings to farmers in more than one way. The initial cost of purchas- ing equipment necessary for the liquid supplement is neg- ligible, he says, and the cost of the actual supplement is considerably less than dry supplements, a traditional method of increasing tbe nu- tritional value of feed. Supplements in the dry form at a rate of one pound per animal per day cost about 6.25 cents daily, be says. STABLE PRICES Depending whether tbe liq- uid supplement is designed for the feedlot or the cow-calf operator, the cost ranges from 4.5 cents per day to four cents per animal. Mr. Bracken claims a sta- ble price for urea and the other additives to the liquid supplement will allow the firm to guarantee a supply and price to the livestock op- erator for more than six months. is a big plus con- sidering tbe drastically changing market for protein additives in the soybean and rapeseed meal be said. "Once on this form of sup- plements, tbe rancher and farmer will also save on labor costs and be will be able to make more use of his avail- able pasture." To help prove the theory, Air passenger study set for Grande Prairie route OTTAWA (CP) The Ca- nadian Transport Commis- sion is assessing the amount of passenger traffic which could be developed on an air route between Edmonton, Grande Prairie, Alta., and Dawson Creek, B.C., a com- mission spokesman said Mon- day. He said that until the study is completed, there will be no decision on whether an air carrier should be licensed for the route. The commission had re- ceived applications to oper- ate an air service on tbe MR CONDITION wHhtht AlCON REftiGERATION LTD. FURNACES, SHEET METAl and HEATING, AIR CONDITIONING St. S, Mi. route from International Jet Air Ltd. and Time Airways. The route was abandoned in May by Northern Thunder- bird Air Ltd. which said the service was uneconomical. A bid to transfer rights to the service directly from Northern Thunderbird to In- ternational Jet Air was tam- ed down by tbe commission. But, the spokesman said International Jet Air is stiO being considered for tbe ser- vice if the commission should decide one is needed. CP Air has recently step- ped up the frequency of flights between Edmonton and Grande Prairie, tbe spo- kesman said. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Stfcwwfi tMf. 222 St. S. Miene ASTRO REALTY LTD. Mr. Bracken is willing to put equipment in any farm- er's field for 30 days as a working test of the liquid sup- plement! ENCOURAGED The supplement will _still bave to be purchased at cost by tbe farmer and be will bave to work only with liquid supplements. Ben Hildebrandt, a farmer in the Spring Coulee district, is encouraged by liquid sup- plements. He said tbe boost to bis pas- ture land is the big asset for tbe liquid supplement. When two of his field tanks dry, he could see tbe amount of pasture diminish. Also, he has one tank with four lick wheels which allows the cattle to eat the supple- ment according to individual needs. The supplement in tbe tank lasted about half tbe time it should bave so he will remove two of tbe wheels. The Standoff Hutterian Bre- theran started using the liq- uid supplement this year and one of the men responsible for the cattle told The Her- ald he can notice a real dif- ference in the health and ap- pearance of the animals. TOP DRESSING Mr. Bracken said tbe liquid supplement can also be used as a top dressing for chopped feed, It can be added by one man in a. tractor-trailer unit or from a track tank. He said when the liquid is applied in this mapner, all of the supplement is applied to tbe feed. With dry supplements, a considerable amount is lost in the wind. The lick wheel appears tbe most popular in this reg- ion, he said. Using this free choice meth- od, tbe cattle lick the supple- ment off tbe wheel and then use tbe grazed pasture grass as roughage Fire haztitd still extreme Tne three-acre forest fire eigftt miles south o' B'SST- more is continuing to burn while four men are manag- ing to keep it within the fire perimeter. Since the fire started last three smaller fires have been reported and ex- tinguished. Chief ranger Jim Hereford said there have been a total of 17 fires reported tins year in the Crowsnest Pass, affect- ed about 18 acres of prime forest land. ROOR COVERINGS Custom Installations 2716 12 Ave. Eyesore By next year, the piles of old tires and junked cars should be only o memory of an eyesore that for years has been the B and H wrecking yard in the river valley. The city and a private developer are planning to replace the mess with a much-needed campground. River valley campsite planned for junk yard Deputy-mayor Cam Barnes confirmed today that there's more to the cleanup of the river valley junk yard site than relieves the eye. A campsite, to alleviate the terrible shortage of camping facilities in Leth- bridge" is probably in the off- ing, he said. Development of tbe land, between Highways 3 and 3A owned by city res- ident Abe Bickman, would involve both private backing and city funding. Mr. Barnes indicated that provision for the development may be in next year's city budget. The land which Mr. Barnes called "an eyesore for years" is invaluable for tourist ac- commodation. "It's needed said Mr. Barnes. He said the city hopes to have definite work begun by 1974. The large acreage be said could accommodate both campers and mobile homes. Mr. Bickman was not available for comment. Meat prices will rise by week's end-packer A Lethbridge packing com- pany executive said in Van- couver Monday that he ex- pects tbe wholesale price of beef will increase nine or 10 cents by Friday. No new leads on Sparwood hold-up try Sparwood RCMP are con- tinuing an investigation into tbe attempted robbery July 23 of a Royal Bank courier truck carrying Disguised as department of highways personnel, two arm- ed men flagged down tbe truck four miles north of Sparwood while it was en route to Elkford, 20 miles north of Sparwood. An official at the RCMP headquarters in Sparwood said this morning that tbe .roadblocks bad been taken down soon after the attempt- ed robbery. No new leads on the robbery have been found. Gerry Stayura, meat man- ager of Canadian .Dressed Meats Ltd., said the predict- ed increase is the result of President Richard Nixon's domestic economic controls, which do not impose a ceil- ing on imported beef. "Tbe Americans are send- ing dressed cattle into East- ern Canada and selling them for what tbe market will bear, and at tbe same-time they are buying Canadian dressed cattle for import into the U.S. where they are free to sell it for what they Mr. Stayura said. Tbe increase would be be- tween 36 cents and 50 cents to the consumer. He also.predicted the price for a pound of T-bone steak will rise to from its cur- rent level of about in two or three weeks. E.

AIR CONDITIONERS While They Last LETHBRIDGE APPLIANCES 905 3rd Avtnro SwHi Ontario plans Brooks coal shipment study Ontario has taken another step towards the possibility of bringing large quantities of Al- berta coal to Ontario with the announcement that it has launched a study into the idea. Gordon Carton, Ontario minister of transportation and communications, said his province's industries have shown a great deal of inter- est in the project. The idea of bringing coal from Alberta to Ontario was first discussed in 1972 follow- ing the discovery of at least 100 million tons of "the best sub-bituminous coal in Alber- ta" near Brooks, 65 miles northeast of Lethbridge. At that time, Dick Mar- shall, manager of engineering and production for CanPac Minerals Ltd., said a decision on development of the mine be made before 1974. CanPac, the mining arm of CP most of the coal in the field which is about 10 miles long and three miles wide. D .J. Gordon, general man- ager of Ontario Hydro told the Herald in 1972 that Brooks coal would not be out of the realm of possibility, that it was closer to their require- ments than other Canadian coal sources. The key problem facing the recent study is cost of trans- portation, Mr. Carton said. The initial phase of the study will be an attempt to find out the unit cost per net ton using three possible transportation routes. They are all-rail from site to site, train to Thunder Bay and boat from there and train to British Columbia and boat from there through the Pan- ama Canal and St. Lawrence Seaway to Ontario. The CP Bail main line to the east runs through Brooks and a spur line to Scandia cuts through the coal field, which is seven miles south- west of Brooks. Those taking part in the studies include the energy ministry of Ontario, Ontario Hydro and the Alberta de- -partment of minerals. 10 city business premises i broken into over night City police strength was spread thin this morning as the force investigated reports of break ins at 10 Leth- bridge businesses. t In addition, they were con- tinuing their investigation of a break in Sunday night at Leister's Music, 715 Para- mount Theatre Bldg, during which in cash and 50 to 60 records were stolen.
