Fred Walker, Wayne, Alberta Bob Brown, U.S By GARRY ATJUSON Herald Staff Writer If you look over the Southern Circuit stnndings this year, try- ing to find last year's cham- pions in the lead, you won't find them. At the completion of three Southern Circuit rodeos, Taber, Vauxhall and Brooks, there is a new leader in every event. Marvin Joyce is the only one listed in the all around race as he is the only competitor to qualify thus far in 1972. A cow- boy must win money in both a timed and riding event in order to enter the all around race. Last year's bareback cham- pion, Lyrin Jensen, rs srtill with- in easy striking distance of re- peating as the riggin' event winner as he is cuiTently sit- ting in fourth spot, only 14 points out of first. All the races are extremely tight and anything can still happen tit the remaining five circuit rodeos a t Raymond, Bassano, Fort Macleod, Lcth- bridge and IWodicine Hat. 116 108 ....................102 Ivan Daines, Innisfail.............................. 73 Tom Bevys, Pekisko................................. 62 BAREBACK Allan Thorpe, Edmonton........................... 103 Doug Flannigan, Ponoka............................ 58 Steve Loney, Great Falls............................ 87 Lynn Jensen, Cardston 04 Happy Tagart, Invermere...........................

This fall natural gas will be available to resi- dents of this farming commun- ity 35 miles sciullieasl of Lcth- hridge. Ted Rudd, chairman of the Triple W Natural Gas Co-op Ltd., said the co-op will have natural gas into Wrentham in September. Tile co-op was formed Sept. 17, 1971, with a view to pur- chasing the assets of Southern Natural Co. Ltd. which was es- tablished in March, 1970. A loan was obtained from the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce in Lcthbridge on Feb. 4, 1972 and the assets of Southern Natural were pur- chased Feb. 22 for As- sets included 10 miles of two- Inch steel pipe, 10 miles of two- inch plastic pipe and 15 miles of IVt-lnch plastic pipe plus meters, valves, service lines and related equipment. At the time, Southern Natural had 12 consumers on the gas line, including four Hutlerite colonies. Natural gas is supplied by two oil wells owned by Cana- dian Pacific Oil and Gas in 14- 20-7-1C and 10-2-7-16. The gas, separated from the oil, re- qui.-es no further treatment and has a BTU rating, according to Mr. Rudd, of 12V4 per cent above standard or roughly BTUs per cubic foot. The co-op purchases the gas for lOlfe cents per thousand cubic feet and will sell it for 65 cents. Mr. Rudd said that when the loan (for sys- tem purchase and expansion) is paid off, likely within eight years, the price of the natural gas will cut to 25 cents or less pe? MCF. The hook-up charge for ham- let customers will be a mini- mum of said Mr. Rucld. The charge includes 50 feet of pipeline from the- main line running through the heart of the hamlet. The also includes the cost of the meter. The number of outlets on a person's proper- ty has no bearing on the cost. However, if a roadway or alley has to be crossed, another charge will be made. The minimum charge for a farm hook-up is regard- less of the number of outlets. There is ar additional charge of if a road has to be crossed. After the installation or hook-up fee is paid, the cus- tomer is required to make a minimum monthly payment erf wluch includes tlw cost of construction for Brooks Horticulture Centre Dr. Hugh Homer, Alherta minister of agriculture, has an- nounced the construction of of buildings at the Al- berta Horticultural Research Centre at Brooks. Construction on some of the buildings will start immediately and all con- struction should he completed hy the end of the year. Dr. Horner says the expen- ditmu on buildings at the re- search centre is in keeping with the government's policy of sup- porting increased specialization on the family farm and the de- velopmejt and processing of horticultural crops. The new potato research laboratory will be used to sup- port the centre's potato breed- ing and evaluation programs. It will provide proper storage for potatoes used in cultural management trials where new fertilizers and herbicides are tested as well as to provide fa- cilities for reconditioning pota- toes after storage for cliipping, French frying and processing. Four laboratories are being constructed to increase the cen- tre's capacity for culinary analysis and product develop- ment, Dr. Horner said. There will be a culinary lab- oratory, an analytical labora- tory and a storage physiology laboratory. The plant pathology laboratory and technical of- fices will come under phase II of the program and be con- structed in 1373-74. The six greenhouses that will be going up this year are in- tended to provide management backup for Alberta's rapidly growing greenhouse industry which now comprises ?12 mil- lion worth of buildings and cov- ers 70 acres of land. Flower and vegetable crops will be tested In the centre's greenhouses for such things as quality, cultural requirements and varienlal improvements. There will also be a green- house storage building. Another building will be built to provide office, reception and conference facilities. for the centre's professional staff. BUFFALO PROFITABLE 'Buffalo, according to a Gait, Ontario farmer, not only can shrug off the coldest weather, they arc also profitable. W. L. Falrchild said Ms herd of 12 buffalo is one of only six herds in Ontario. He said a buf- falo cow with a calf sells for about compared with a price of up to for a good beef type cow with a calf. Another plus, he explained, IT that buffalo steaks retail for as much as a pound. the first 2.000 cubic feet of gas consumed. The co-op has already con- tracted to provide natural gas to the Wrentham school, leach- erages, janitor's house, water tank house, grader shed, prin- cipal's house, fire shed, com- munity centre, Wrentham Farm Supplies, Sclk Buses, Garth Nilsson, Grovcrs and some dwellings. The co-op offers members no rebates or dividends, but will adjust the price of tiie gas to balance its budget. The co-op now has 38 members, Mr. Hudd said. In order to keep expenses to a minimum, each customer will read his own meter. The co-op will take meter readings twice a year. Co-op assets now total 000 and within five years will be about said Mr. Rudd. Expansion of services can be handled in tlie same way as purchasing the unit, he said. The customer will pay 23 per cent of the cost by deposit with the remaining 75 per cent fi- nanced through the bank with a provincial government guar- antee. Besides Mr. Rudd, the co-op board includes: Elda Mueller, secretary-treasurer; and direc- tors Roy Nelson, Wrentham; John Entz, Rock Lake Huller- ile colony; Jake Hofer, New York colony; George Hofer, Wilson colony; Stan LaValley and Wayne Bartlett, Wren- tham; and one vacant seat. Mr. Rudd said natural gas in Alberta will follow that of elec- tric power and will eventually be available to just about eryone. The provincial government is doing a study on the feasibility of pulling gas on all farms in Alberta at a low rate of inter- est. Co-op ten-it ory extends from Wilson on the west to Skiff on the east and from Chin Coulee on the north to south of High- way 61. Future expansion will largely south of the present lines and eastward toward Skiff, depending on demand. i o I 1 E I fc SMELLY, RUSTY HARD WATER?
