Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - 1HI UTHH1D0E herald - Thursday, MdreKTl, 1971 Farmers dubious about forecasts says Unifarm chief Government approach is questioned By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Farm Writer While accurate agricultural outlook forecasts are very important to Canadian farmers, Dobson Lea, president of Unifarm, questions the federal government's approach to the situation. Mr. Lea was in Lethbridge Wednesday, and will be attending a series of scheduled meetings throughout southern Alberta this week. He said farmers are dubious about forecasts and figures released by government agencies such as the Dominion Bureau of Statistics, and feels more would be accomplished if individual commodity groups accumulated the required information and made the forecasts. Mr. Lea cited an example of a government forecast concerning proposed rapeseed acreages in 1971. The statement was made at the federal government's agircultural outlook conference held recently in Ottawa, and said, "If Canadian farmers increase the 1971 rapeseed acreage to six million acres, it should prove to be a reasonable gamble." Mr. Lea also feels the government may be headed for trouble with the recently announced forage program. The program is designed to persuade Prairie grain producers to switch crop and sum* znerfallow acreage into forage production. The incentive program wjll pay producers $10 per acre of land taken out of crop or sum-nerfallow and planted to forage. Mr. Lea said the federal government is probably about to set off a reaction which will go "too far, too fast." "Canada has just gene through a grain and pork glut, and now with this program, there is a possibility we also could be facing a beef glut within a few years," he said. He said a solution may be to take a closer look at better motion and marketing, especially in Pacific rim countries, or perhaps a move to supply management programs such as TAPE SALE 9St,.......... 5.95 MUSICLAND Cor. 13th St. and 3rd Ave. S. the dairy people and broiler producers are contemplating. Mr. Lea also took exception to reports made recently by the Palliser Wheat group. A delegation of five Palliser members returned recently from Vancouver, saying Canada has lost million dollar grain sales due to awkward grain handling procedures, used at the export terminals. Mr. Lea said the situation is certainly not as severe as the Palliser group suggests, and as far as he is concerned, not one boat has left Vancouver empty and no sales have been lost. He said the Canadian whsat board does admit it is about six million bushels behind in loading, but this is expected to be made up as soon as possible. Mr. Lea had meetings scheduled for Wednesday in Ray- mond and Warner, today in Cardston and tonight at 7:30 in the El Rancho Motor Hotel in Lethbridge. Friday he will speak in Taber at 1:30 p.m. in Petrie's 'Pantry and at 7:30 p.m. in the Burdett Community Hall. Head start gets McKilfop classroom The Lethbridge Head Start project will be permitted to use a classroom in the George Mc-Killop Elementary School this fall without rental fees if necessary. The Lethbridge public school board Tuesday approved use of the school by the project, directed by the Lethbridge preventive social services branch. In the past the Head Start classroom has been in the St. Patrick's School of the separate school district. However, due to enrolment pressures in the separate school district there was some doubt the dis- trict would be able to continue making the room available. At Tuesday's meeting, Dr. 0. P. Larson, public schools superintendent said that since the separate school district had approached the public district to see if it had space for the project, pre-school census surveys have indicated there may be a Grade 1 enrolment decrease, and the St. Patrick's classroom may continue to be free. Dr. Larson said the same enrolment drop may be experienced by the public school district too. Trusteea expressed support of the Head Start program, which provides disadvantaged students with some extra help to place them on an equal footing with other Grade 1 students when they start school. The board also decided not to change the split system approach to elementary education in use in the General Stewart and Allan Watson elementary schools. In the system, General Stewart has only Grade 1 to 3 and Watson has only Grade 4 to 7, and soon only Grade 4 to 6. Edmonton dancer top mark at festival earns By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer Young Edmonton dancer Myrna Lacky, a victim of circumstances Tuesday, came back with a vengeance Wednesday night to earn the top mark awarded in the first two days of the Alberta Danes Festival. Miss Lecky received a mark of 87 Tuesday for her performance in a solo tap class, but was disqualified from first place by adjudicator Brian Foley because he had taught her the routine last summer. Wednesday, the 13-year-old dancer, competing in the solo song and dance class for students 13-14 years, made sure of a first place and a winning bronze medal by giving a performance which earned her a peak mark of 92. Mr. Foley awarded the mark because of Miss Lecky's "natural stage personality" Out of Respect to the Late Ross Holmes Will Be CLOSED from 12 Noon FRIDAY, MARCH 12th HOLMES APPLIANCES 329 7th STRICT SOUTH Culligan Water Conditioning (Lethbridge) Ltd. 1200 N. Mayor Magrath Drive Will Be CLOSED From 12 Noon FRIDAY, MARCH 12 Out of respect to the late ROSS HOLMES of HOLMES APPLIANCES and for having maintained a "kooky personality through both the song and dance" portions of the performance. The 33 classes held Wednesday at the Yates Memorial Centre turned into another marathon session for festival participants. Originally scheduled to conclude about 11 p.m., the final classes in tap and stage dancing finished about 12.30 a.m. Highland and Irish dancing had terminated earlier, about 10:30 p.m. The highest marks of the Seek delay on freeze of grants The provincial government is to be asked to delay a freeze on municipal grants until representation on the matter can be made to the cabinet. Mayor Andy Anderson, who attended a meeting Wednesday in Edmonton called by the executive of the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association, said the government was to be contacted immediately to set up a meeting date. Mayor Anderson said another meeting of the municipalities would be held in early April and, in the interim, a brief would be prepared presenting the case for both urban and rural municipalities. He was satisfied, he said, with the meeting, which had been attended by about 100 represenntatives of municipalities in the province. The freeze on grants has set the limit this year at $38 million on grants to municipalities from oil and gas royalities- Locally, the" effect may mean the city will be $80,000 to $100,000 below expected revenues.

MERLE NORMAN COSMETIC BOUTIQUE COLLEGE MALL - 328-1525 Gifts - Costume Jewellery - Perfumes in tap went to and Ed- stu- day were given stage, and they monton and Red Deer dents. However Erin O'Connor seemed intent on single-handedly vindicating Calgary through her performances in the Highland and Irish classes. Miss O'Connor, performing in classes for students 11-12 years, was given an 88 for the Seaon Truibhas and an 87 for the Irish Jig by adjudicator Sandra Bald Jones. And young Elaine Wandler of St. Albert clinched her winning of the House of Books Trophy by gaining the top mark, for competitors six years' and under, in the Highland Fling, Seann Truibhas, Sword Dance, Irish Jig and Sailor's Hornpipe. Miss Wandler's high mark was 81. Aside from Miss Lecky's 92, three other solo, duet and group preformances hit the 90 or more mark among the 18 tap and stage classes. Wenda Crawford, 18, of Red Deer, received a 91 for her "beautifully choreographed and well-danced" performance in the solo jazz class for students 17-18 years. A 12-girl ensemble from the Bain School of Dancing of Red Deer won a 90 for a "beautifully camped-up" version of a singing baseball team. Mr. Foley also awarded a 90 to Jeanette and Dan Auchen-berg for their performance in the acrobatic duet class for student six years and under. The adjudicator said he had "never seen a stronger performance for children of this age." Tap, stage. Highland and Irish dancing continues tonight and Friday morning, with ballet starting about 1 p.m. All classes for the five-day event, the eighth provincial dance festival, are open to the public.

Elf or d in Lethbridge magistrate's court Wednesday morning and was remanded on his own recognizance and $1,000 bail. He is charged with attempted murder. Holloway is scheduled to appear April 8 at 10 a.m. in Pincher Creek magistrate's court for a preliminary hearing into the Feb. 27 shooting of Joseph Yellow Wing, 32, his brother-in-law, also of Pincher Creek. Holloway was arrested and charged with attempted murder Feb. 27 after an incident in Holloway's home in which Yellow Wing had been shot between the eyes, an RCMP official said. Yellow Wing was shot with a .22 calibre bullet. The slug entered at a downward angle between his eyes, narrowly missing his eyes and nose and did extensive damage to his1 cheek, said an RCMP official. Yellow Whig has been released from hospital. Students are bused to both schools in the attendance area, at a cost of about $5,000 per year to the board. The board felt that changing the system would be a disrup-t i v e influence, particularly since a redefinition of South Lethbridge elementary school attendance areas is likely in the next few years, which will add a further disruption to the students' lives. Parents in the district were generally in favor of the system as it exists, although a number expressed, a desire to see both schools offer Grades 1 to 6. In other business, the board accepted a recommendation from Bob Gall, school services director, that a computerized occupational information system not be pursued due to the heavy costs - up to $115,000 - which would be involved. Mr. Gell said Canada Manpower currently has a similar program in operation which will soon come to Lethbridge and which the school district 'could plug into." Trustees also approved a recommendation from Mack Crumley, district secretary-treasurer, that the board ask that trustees be elected this fall in the same election as city council goes to. Under the new School Act, the board may either hold a separate election or hold its election in co-operation with another municipal body. An election is required this fall, and all public and separate school board and city council seats will be vacant. The election will be for three-year terms of office.
