Ph. 328-8161 1705 M.M. Drive Ph. 328-7751 Dairymen gearing to world market By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Agriculture Writer Alberta dairymen may soon adopt a system of market share quotas - the first time in history that farmers have geared production in relation to a total world market. Bill Woolfrey, president of the Dairy Farmers of Canada said the system will likely be introduced to dairymen within the next few months in the form of a government plebi-cite. Speaking Thursday at the annual meeting of the Lethbridge Milk Producers' Association, Mr. Woolfrey said the plan is President stresses promotion Dairymen have been sititng back too long and counting on people buying dairy products just because they are nature's food, says Louis Pavan, president of the Lethbridge Milk Producers' Association. At the association's annual meeting in Lethbridge, Mr. Pavan said the promotion of dairy products is a necessity if the industry is to survive. The expenses of promotion will have to be bonne by the primary producer, he said. The annual report showed that in 1970, there were 29,873,-000 pounds of milk shipped into Lethbridge processing plants from 39 contracted producers. This was an increase of 1.8 per cent over 1969. Total receipts to producers from the milk was $1,594,417. The total Canadian cash receipts gained from the dairy industry during 1970 was in excess of $1 billion or more than one quarter of the total Canadian agriculture cash receipts. " Other business at the meeting included the election of board members whose terms had expired. Re-elected were Bill Nicol and Cornelius Vant Land for Purity Dairy Coop Ltd., and Harold Osmond for Union Milk Division of SBlverwood Dairies Ltd. Les Androkovitch was the new board member elected for Sil-verwood, replacing Stan Tiffin. Executive elections will be held at the next general board meeting. NEW 1600 V.W.

Sales 328-4539 Car Lot 328-4356 designed to supply the domestic market, and regulate produce which can be exported at a profit. It will be flexible enough to expand and contract dairy production according to world requirements. Under the system, subsidies will only be paid to dairymen entitled to them, and the cost of exporting surpluses will be borne by the producers who create the surpluses. It seems one of the great ills of the dairy industry in the past has been the wide production fluctuations in different areas - in effect, shortages experienced in Calgary, while a surplus exists in Lethbridge. Mr. Woolfrey said the idea to introduce marketshare quotas came about during 1969, when the world prices being paid for skim milk powder and butter, six cents and 25 cents per pound, respectively, proved unrealistic compared to the much higher prices being paid on the European Common Market, 30 cents and $1 per pound. Extensive subsidies were being paid to producers, while in reality these subsidies were only contributing to the world surplus. Prices of skim milk and butter in Canada at the time were 20 cents and. 65 cents respectively. "Enter the Canada Dairy Commission, whose responsibility it is to provide realistic liniooes to efficient producers of industrial milk and to ensure the Canadian consumer of continuity of supply at reasonable prices." The commission was paying a direct subsidy to industrial milk producers and holding back from these payments sufficient money to export surplus product. In 1969, this required $40 million, leaving only $85 million to be distributed among producers holding sub sidy legibility quotas. The surpluses being generated were coming from fluid milk producers who were not receiving subsidy payments, and consequently the hold back of subsidy funds was affecting the producers not altogether responsible. The plebiscite, if approved by government, will be introduced in Alberta within the next few months. Ontario and Quebec have been operating under the system since Dec. 1, 1970. TREE REMOVAL - This north-west poplar is one of about 20 in the 2300 block of 6th Ave. S. that is being cut down by city crews at the request of the residents of the area. The trees are victims of poplar gall mite. A spokesman for the parks and recreation department said the disease doesn't usually kill the trees but it does damage them and make them less attractive. He said many poplars in the city are affected and are being removed at the request of local citizens. The boulvard will be repaired and replanted with a different type of tree.

MIKE HANZEL EXTRA WEAR FOR EVERY PAIR 317 7th STREET SOUTH By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer EDMONTON - Jobs or no jobs, all Albertans have both the right and the need for continuing, lifelong education - even if they never in their lives have jobs. So says J. P. Mitchell, director of the Albert, department of education's division of vocational education and a member of the Worth Commission on educational planning lifelong education task force. Answering qestions front an audience of 150 invited guests here Thursday at a seminar session on the task force's preliminary report, Mr. Mitchell said education for leisure, as well education for what has traditionally been employment, is a necessary attribute of any modem school system. The task force report was found generally favorable by the the seminar delegates who came from throughout the province. A few said it was missing some points because all of its members were "middle class, urban and male, with no women, no rural delegates aud no Indians." One delegate said He favored the report's philosophy of education designed for "living the good life," but asked where religion would fit in. He said he also favored the report's stress on utilizing all existing community resources and focusing on an intensity of education rather than an increase in school buildings. The report recommends that experts in all fields living in a communitybe expected to teach those interested in learning about their specialties. It was also suggested that the lifelong education task TONIGHT and SATURDAY ... A Delightful Experience in Gourmet Dining -With Dinner Dancing To the Music of "The Moonglows" NO COVER CHARGE!

Dr. Henry Kolesar, chairman of the Alberta College Commission and of the task force said he agreed, and that he hoped he and his colleagues could continue their work. Dick Gruenwald, a Lethbridge separate school trustee and conference delegate, asked the task force to explain its recommendations that local education authorities be placed within the general scope of local governments. OUR OSCAR Fuddle duddle, duddle fuddle it's not every day our prime minister gets married. A number of delegates, particularly those from larger cities, feared this would mean school boards would be abolished and education would become a responsibility of city councils "along with the decisions of the engineering and dog-catching departments." Task force member Allen des Champs, director of the Calgary public school board adult education division, said the task force had not meant to suggest implementation of any specific organizational system for education, save any one which would be most effective. "When you look at local situations you see city council, school boards, special agencies, culture and recreation departments, all with their own bits and pieces anc* chunks. BROAD PANORAMA "Let's look at education in terms of a broad panorama of things to do, rather than in all of those boxes." Closer to the task force's intention might be the system now operating in Lethbridge, where school boards, city council, recreation, allied arts, the Family Y, the YWCA and others arc all co-operating to provide a community summer program. Another is the highly - successful community use of schools agreement between the school districts and the city parks and recreation department. Delegates also suggested the task force should deal with the problem of how to encourage people to want to return to COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. 909 3rd Ave. S. Ph. 327-5454 school for more education, rather than looking at continuing education as something for people with money or university degrees. There is also, a delegate said, a need to make it pos sible "for a person to drop out of school at any grade or level, and then plug himself back into the education system when he feels he can again benefit from it." However: "Alberta is not the centre of the universe and what we do here is often controlled by factors outside of the p r o v i n c e," another delegate said. "Perhaps what we should really be looking at is the federal-provincial consideration, and maybe in any con-sttutional revision discussions, Alberta should volunteer to give up some of its sovereignty over education, so that the entire country can get together." Postal revenue The sale of postage stamps, postage meter settings and cash receipts for mail posted at the Lethbridge post office in February was down about $3,-000 from last year. The total for the month was $50,800.

Grain handling said sales loser Canada Is losing multi-million bushel grain sales because of awkward handling procedures used at export terminals, says Orville Reber, Alberta director of the Palliser Wheat Growers' Association. Mr. Reber and four other PalUser delegates returned recently from Vancouver, where they were investigating why boats have to wait at export terminals to be loaded with grain. Mr. Reber said when the group arrived, there were 19 boats waiting in harbor, five being loaded, and 14 sitting idle because of lack of grain on hand. "Nine of these 14 boats were waiting for wheat and were being told there was not enough wheat in storage." said Mr. Reber. "There were 1,200 box cars waiting to move into position at the terminal. Providing there were no hitches in loading, it would take between two and three weeks to fill all the ships with grain." He said conversations with Japanese importers in Vancouver revealed Canada lost sales for about three million bushels of grain in the four days the delegates were at the coast. "Two - thirds of the orders offered to importers were turned down." Mr. Reber expressed disappointment that grain exports from Canada to Japan fell from more than 59 million bushels in 1966, to 34.5 million bushels in 1970. Wildcat walkout at U of L site There is a wildcat strike by construction workers at the west side construction site of the University of Lethbridge. Union employees this morning refused to work on the site because one company installing communications systems in the university is not union, said an official of Poole Construction Limited, Edmonton, the construction mangement team. Alberta Government Telephones let a contract to a nonunion company to install a main switching unit for the telephone distribution in the building. The official said this move upset the union workers. Both sides in the conflict are waiting for union business agents from Calgary and an industrial relations officer from Edmonton to arrive to settle the dispute.
