The minister had been asked whether Alberta would match B.C.'s "mincome" plan of guaranteed minimum income for all people 60 years of age or more. That system provides a minimum income of a month for all senior citizens. "It is meaningless to talk about senior citizens incomes in terms of disposable income said Mr. Crawford He said his department has calculated the values of all benefits made available to senior citizens by provincial governments and the figures show Alberta offers senior citizens more than does British Columbia. The minister said he does not recall the exact figures for each province, however. "One must take into account, for example, that Alberta is the only jurisdiction in Canada in which there is not sales tax and no education tax on private said Mr. Crawford. He was in Medicine Hat to take part in opening ceremonies for the community resource centre, a three year pilot project for the co-ordination of health and social services throughout southeastern Alberta.

Refrigeration WALK-IN FREEZERS COOLERS ICE MAKERS 111 11th Street South Phone 328-033 By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Writer Western Canada is playing host to three executive members of the Welsh Black Cattle Society of Wales. O. G. Thomas, chairman of the council: H. 0. Tudor, chairman of the finance sub- committee and past president of the society, and G. W. Edwards, the society's secretary, are in this country on a good-will mission. "Since the Black Welsh breed was introduced here in 1970 we have been invited to come over and view conditions here and offer any advice we can from our 100 years experience as a Mr. Edwards said. Black Welsh cattle originated as a dual purpose breed but today the emphasis is on beef production. "Because of their background they are excellent mothers." Mr. Edwards said. "They are docile animals and extremely hardy and thrifty." "They adapt well to Canadian winters. It is cold and wet at home in the winter and this makes it easier for the animals to adapt to your cold, dry winters here." The life expectancy of the breed is another asset. "They are at their peak at 10 years of age and still calf at 15 to 18 years. The oldest female I ever saw calf was 24 years old." Mr. Edwards said. A small percentage of the breed are used as milk producers and the milk has a bulterfat content seldom below four per cent. Mr. Edwards feels the breed is on the threshold of world-wide expansion. "We are confident the breed The 1969 contract the city signed with Calgary Power Ltd., combined with the negligence of city officials to maintain the municipal power plant, has placed the city in a poor position to effectively provide for future power needs, a University of Lethbridge professor says in a brief to city council. In the brief, to be presented to council tonight, Sam Kounosu says city council will have to be "ingenious as well as diligent" to maintain continued municipal ownership of power generation. But, he says, he does not support the argument made by other city residents ques- tioning the proposed sale of the power plant to Calgary Power that the 1969 contract left the city no other option. The city made about million profit from the electric system, and part of that profit was to have been spent up-grading the river valley generating station, Mr. Kounosu states. "Yet the city has not added any generator to the plant nor has it improved heat the brief says. At the same time, Mr. Kounosu charges, the city has had a 35 per cent profit rate from its electrical system, compared with a 25 per cent rate in Calgary. Sale of the plant, as recommended by council's future power needs committee, has been supported partially on the basis that city residents pay more for electricity than consumers in Edmonton or Calgary because of the inefficiency of the present plant. He also criticizes council for failing to take advantage of new technology which could increase power supply from the present plant without raising fuel costs. Generators now in place have a high heat loss and Mr. Kounosu suggests a heat converter could drive another generator. He notes Medicine Hat, which owns its power plant, recently employed this method to double the output of its plant. He also questions the price for the plant offered by Calgary Power, pointing out the city assessed the plant in 1970 at over million. Calgary Power has offered to pay the city for the plant and equipment. Checking out the rodeo O. G. Thomas, left, and G. W. Edwards Ronald K. Tsujikawa Bsc. M. 0.

"The rancher has to be educated in the role this breed can play in his operation and that's one of the purposes for our being here." One notable difference the group noted in cattle operations here was the prevalence of feedlots. Most of the beef produced in Wales is raised on grass.

Until all questions have been answered regarding alternatives to the present plant, he suggests the city keep the station in operation. "This may not be an unrealistic alternative to the proposed sale There seems to be no particular reason for hasty sale of the the brief states. He admits the city is in difficult position- and tha continued municipa ownership will not be easy. But, he says, if council sincerely wants to keep the city in the generation business, methods can be found to secure a cheaper power supply without turning to Calgary Power.
