The list of speakers reads like a Whos Who on grain handling and mar- keting. The idea behind the seminar is to orient grain producers primar- ily, and any oilier inter- ested persons, with t.he problems and probable solutions to the difficul- ties in the handling and marketing of grain, espe- cially at the west coast ports. Two keynote addresses will be delivered by W. S. Beaton grain movement co-onlinator for the railway transport committee of the Canadian Trans- port Commission and Frank Hamilton, a member of the Palliser Wheat Growers Association. The Lelhbridge seminar is a follow-up In meet- ings held at district points on the question of grain handling and to .add southern Alberta thoughts to Ihe discussion held during the Palliser Wheat Grow- ers Association annual convention in Regina last De- cember. Marvin Gaits, regional farm economist with the ADA, said the seminar will attempt to open more ideas lo Ihe farmers, give them some insiglit as to how the system works and to lei them know how the experts think some of the problems can be solved. The grapccinc has it Hint the Lethbriilge and District Ex- hibition Association will not hold a sweepstake draw at this j year's Whoop-Up Celebrations. Apparently the headaches out- weighed the profit margin in 1971. The Alberta Wheat Pool has predicted that markets for corn can be found in the feed industry and the distilling industry that will absorb production from acres in south- ern Alberta. Quality control is the key. The Feed Freight Assistance for feed grains will, accord- ing to The Pool, give southern Alberta corn an advantage over corn from the U.S. The corn used in the distilling industry is a different story, hut The Pool an agreed rate for freight may be able to be worked out with the railway companies. The 26th annual Calgary Seed Fair and Hay Show put ttie wraps on another successful event. Southern Albertans were in the foray all the way and proved to be worthy contestants. H. W. r.rcciio and Sous of Lethbridge took Ihe grand cham- pionship for the best cereal and flax seed with a 67-pound per bushel sample of Winalta winter wheat. Dave Anderson of Nanlon took a grand championship in cereal and oil seed classes with a 58-pound per bushel sample of Seizes two-row barley. t'ujiirmto Farms Ltd. of Rainier took a grand champion- ship award for the best potato exhibit.

The Canae'ian vaccine will be similar lo the type used with success in the United States to vaccinate thousands of horses following an outbreak of the disease l.'isl July in Texas.

Vaccination certificates will be issued to owners and copies j of (lie certificates will be sub- mitted by Ihe veterinarians to Ihe nearest subdistrict office of the Canada Agriculture Health of Animals Branch. VEE has not been found in Canada, but the vaccine is being rr.ade available as a pre- cautionary measure, Mr. Olson said. Immunization is particu- larly important in cases where Canadian owners wish to lake i their horses inlo the United j Slates. Special regulalions aimed at preventing the disease from reaching Canada have been in 60 days. Tiie horse did not originate from a quarantine area. gin.
