LEON A F. PATERSON Kiwanis name adjudicator Lcona F. Paterson, director of the speech and drama de- partment of Mount Royal Col- lege in Calgary, will adjudi- cate the speech entries in the Lethbririgc Kiwanis Music Fes- tival from April 21 to 29. Mrs. Paterson is past presi- dent of the Canadian Speech As- sociation and of the Southern Alberta Professional Speech Teachers Association, and is a member of the board of direc- tors of tlie educational televi- sion association in Calgary. Sho gained her teaching ex- perience at the Banff Sctiool of Fine Arts, the University of Al- foerta, the University of British Columbia and the University of Calgary. Mrs. Paterson recently ap- peared before speech associa- tions in New York and London, England. She is an accomplish- ed lecturer ami experienced ad- judicator in schools and festi- vals throughout the V n i t a d States and Canada. The proposed sale has been approved by the directors ol Federal Grain. This approval is subject (o ratification by Fed- erals shareholders al a special meeting March 10. "Under this merger between the pools and Federal Gram, we are now faced with a situa- tion where Die pools can force other companies out of busi- said Mr. Stangeland. "This includes the UGG, Pio- neer, National Grain, Inter- ocean Grain, Palcrson Grain or any other smaller independent.1' Mr. Stangeland attributed his theory to the system used lo allocate boxcars to country ele- vator points. The- allocation is based on a percentage of the grain handled by the individual elevators on a previous 12- month period, updated monthly. Mv. Stangeland said in theory, the Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba Wheat Pools will in- herit the grain handlings of Fed- eral Grain in this running 11- month period. If former Federal customers don't want to Iwul to the pool elevators, they will have to turn to the other smaller companies. These elevators will become congested. Because of the smaller per- centage of grain handled over the past 12-month period, the boxcar allocations will not al- low the smaller companies lo handle the increased volume. "Because of this, tile fanners will be forced to haul to the he said. Under the loading block ship- ping system, a company is giv- en its- orders for boxcars each week. 11 may place these orders at any point in tlte shipping block. With about 50 per cent of the points within the loading block being controlled by one com- pany, all the company has to I do with the large number of boxcar orders is to starve com- pletely or partially the single company points (points repre- sented by only one World politics seminar set Top diplomatic figures will take part in a five day course in Canada's role in world poli- tics to be held at the University of Lethbridge March 20 lo 2-1. Representatives of the Bri- tish High Commission, the German and Japanese consul- ates in Edmonton and the de- partment of external affairs will be among those taking part. Registration is open to every- one interested, at a cost of for adults and S3 for students and senior citizens. HOG IMUCKS DOWN The base price of Softs at the Lcthhridgc public stockyards In mi was 22.90 cents per pound. This was a decrease from five-year average of 27.M cents. 'tiis would force :hc farmers lo haul to anolher point or an- otlier shipping block if they didn't want lo liuul to the Pool elevator, he said. "Meanwhile, they can put more than llieir normal share of orders into competitive points (points will] more than one company he said. "This creates space while tho competing companies receive only their normal allocation of boxcars, becoming congested with the extra volume. "This means tliey would then have to turn away business." fn a matter of a year or two, tljere would be no way any of these companies could compete witli the pools. Pioneer feels the only solution to Ihe situation is for the Ca- nadian hoard or the Ca- nadian government to imple- ment a "congested delivery" system. This would provioe addition- al boxcar orders for those com- panies which become congested in shipping block, freeing ad- ditional space, and allow a farmer to haul to the elevator company of his choice. This policy was introduced into the Grain Transport Tech- nical Group, with representa- tives from all the major grain handling companies, the rail- way companies and the Cana- dian Grain Commission. In the terms of reference, this congested policy was accepted. This would allow companies which became congested in loading blocks to ship a higlxjr- than-normal percentage of box- cars. This was eventually rejected because of disagreement by member companies, particular- ly Uie Saskatchewan and Man- itoba Wheat Pools, he said. Pioneer feels it can't get any- where with the GTTG so it will use customer petition at the lo- cal Member of Parliament level to put pressure on tlie govern- ment.

Tlie proposal, vigorously op- posed by conservationists who say Hie bed development would give a U.S. dominated interest virtual control ol the resort, was the subject of heat, ed discussion and soul-search- ing by delegates representing Alberta's 12 tourist zones. Frank Smith, Travel and Con- vention Association of Southern AJberta manager, says the de- cision by the provincial associ- ation was not the result of a "put up job." The delegates listened to and analyzed both sides of the story and voted to endorse the propo- sal, he said. The project, proposed by Im- perial Oil Ltd., in partnership with Village Lake Louise Ltd., had been subject to concentrat- ed study about, possible ecologi- cal side effects before the final plans were proposed.
