Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, March 13, 1974 New gov't marketing policies promise higher egg quotas Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON Higher quotas for Alberta's major egg producers and freedom from government interference for small family operations are part of new marketing policies unveiled in the legislature Tuesday. Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer tabled the comprehensive consultants' report at the base of the policy changes already under way. "The larger and more efficient producer will benefit from higher Dr. Horner said in an interview. "The small guy isn't going to be bothered by bureaucrats telling him where he can sell his eggs. "I suspect producers will welcome changes in the internal structure of the Alberta Egg and Fowl Marketing Board. Certainly the complaints I had from the Lethbndge area had to do with allocation of quotas and board structure. "If the small farmer is selling his eggs at the farmers' market, the consumer will be getting a better deal Dr. Horner said. Major policy changes now being implemented by the marketing board include: with flocks of 500 or less will be exempt from levy and quota regulations (the present figure is producers with tlocks of 501 to may apply for exemption which may be granted if their total production is marketed to their friends, neighbors and at their farm gate. Levy will be paid by producers with flocks of 500 or less on eggs sold to dealers. Marketings will be monitored at a deemed level of 18 dozen eggs per bird per year rather than 15 dozen. holders with less than dozen may apply for quota to bring them up to or less than dozen. All other quota holders may apply for up to a dozen increase in their individual quota. The board proposes to limit individual quota holders to a maximum three per cent of the total provincial quota. meet the needs of the Canadian egg marketing agency, the board proposes to allocate a reserve quota to, cover exempt producers as a group. effect equitable treatment of the small producer, the board will remove the levy on eggs going to the breaker, develop a variable levy to reduce seasonal fluctuations in marketing and keep Alberta markets supplied with Alberta eggs, and improve its financial planning. policy will remain related to the cost of production, new activities will be undertaken to develop industries within the province for those producers who do not produce table quality eggs. will .be allocated on a quarterly basis in January, April, July and October in this priority: existing egg production facilities, facilities which could be converted to egg production, planned facilities. The first 25 per cent of available quota will be offered to new production units with the balance going to existing quota holders. farm units will also receive priority. will be kept fully informed of quotas still available in each quarter and the board proposes to hold more of its meetings outside Calgary. new electoral district with a new director already elected has been created for the Vegreville area, previously under represented "in the board's decision making process." board will implement province wide surplus accounting, to avoid, according to Dr. Horner, "the difficulties that they got into prior to this report whereby individual producers quotas meant that a producer could not sell table eggs once that quota had been reached."

George Sevan, director of curriculum, informed Mr. Turner that the "proper authorities" referred to in the policy were the director of school services or the superintendent and the parents rather than the police. The new dance policy also bans the use of liquor at school dances and calls for the exclusion of anyone who appears to be under the influence of alcohol. It also states that steps should be taken to encourage suitable footwear so the gymnasium floors will not be damaged. It restricts high school dances to a closing time of a.m. and junior high school dances to 11 p.m. Th policy also regulates the number of dances a school can hold in one school year, who can attend the dances, supervision and custodial services. An evaluation of the divided school year will be undertaken immediately to determine whether it should be retained in Lethbridge schools, the trustees decided Tuesday following a short debate on area lake habitat project SMILEY'S PLUMBING BASEMENT BATHROOMS REMODELLING how the evaluation should be conducted A five-year experimentation with the divided school year in Lethbridge public and separate schools concludes this spring. When agreeing to hire a University of Calgary graduate student to conduct the evaluation, a few trustees indicated that they would like to participate in the preliminary organization of the evaluation. Trustee Al Mont suggested that the school board should take the necessary precautions to make sure it can understand the product (report) of the evaluation. Some research documents are acceptable in academic circles but nobody else can understand -them, he warned. Since it was the school board's intention that somebody from outside the local school systems do the evaluation, trustee Doug McPherson warned that the objectivity of the report may be destroyed if trustees became too involved with it. The board members eventually agreed to become involved in only the preliminary stages of the evaluation. The cost of the evaluation is estimated to about If separate school trustees agree to participate in the cost of the study when they meet today, public schools will then be charged with only of the cost of the evaluation and the separate schools will pick up the tab for the other NEW HANDBAGS Available now to match all our ioveiy new Spring Shoes. urns 403-5th Streets. MARQUIS WER SHOP 327-1515 WARNER (Staff) Milk River sportsman Alva told the Warner County council Tuesday Ducks Unlimited is just about ready to present its habitat plan for Verfigris Lake to council. Ducks Unlimited is prepared to spend on the project, said Mr. Bair. Verdigris Lake is now collected run off water and is situated west of Warner and Milk River. It runs north and south Reeve J. H. Otto told Mr. Bair the county is interested in its road network and how the plan will affect it. The plan is to bring water from the Ridge Reservoir, northwest of Warner, into Weston Lake, north of Warner, and then into Verdigris Lake. "They want to create said Mr. Bair. "They are quite excited about this project." He said the water in the lake would be raised 10 or 15 feet without flooding a road on the east shore Farmers in the area want to know how much water will be available for irrigation. Ducks Unlimited has told the provincial department of agriculture it has two months in which to make a study of possible effects. Soil samples will be taken and studies made to see what areas will be inundated. Mr. Bair said water at the north end will be brought up only as high as the high water mark. He said there will be no changes in the water level that people don't already know about. "There is no way they will allow "us to put more water above that high water mark and flood too much said Mr. Bair. "As far as Ducks Unlimited is concerned they can only say, 'What would you farmers like7' There is no way Ducks Unlimited can do anything that is not agreeable to everybody." The high water mark will bring the water to the edge of the road all the way through. Coun. Ed Pittman said it will be a good thing for farmers because they will benefit from increased irrigation. Area farmer Max Tetlaff was said to be opposed to losing some land to the water impoundment. Other farmers in the shore region are James Doenz, Hummel Farms, Frank Madge, Avis Davidson, Wally Collins and Walt Jones. Mr. Bair said Ducks Unlimited may be interested in building a road diversion, if it is needed. The dam will be placed at the south end of the lake. Study confirms facilities in high school inadequate Catholic Central High School's claim that its lunchroom, physical education and drama facilities are "inadequate" accurately describes the situation, a special separate school board committee study has found. The committee, in a report to be presented to separate school trustees today, recommends that necessary action be taken to obtain department of education approval for the construction of a gymnasium, a food service area a covered walk and specialized facilities. The specialized facilities would include an area for nursing services, a student activity room and a conference room. The covered walk would provide a passage way between the two main buildings at Catholic Central High School. The committee also .recommends that the school's drama facilities be modified "to make it a proper teaching area." The physical education facilities cannot accommodate all the students in the school and as a result the physical education program has been curtailed, the committee's reports states. School administrators wary of gift When the government offers you a gift, there has to be a hitch to it. That is the attitude the public school administrators took when the department of education offered the schools in Southern Alberta worth of educational films this year. The department is decentralizing its film library in Edmonton to create more efficient and effective distribution of films to schools in the province. The public school administrators welcomed the department's decision to decentralize, but they were not prepared to accept the films until some decision was made about who would pay for the film library services and facilities that would have to be established in Southern Alberta to disperse the Films to the schools. Robert Plaxton. superintendent, told the trustees Tuesday that the superintendents of the various Southern Alberta school districts in a recent meeting endorsed decentralization on the condition that the FOX DENTURE CUMC ESI 1922 PHONE 32745fS E.

"The modifications to the school would accommodate a growing communitV use of the the report projects. If the school board fails to obtain funds for at least the lunchroom and gymnasium, about 700 students will have to continue eating their lunch in the "crowded, untidy" confines of the school's hallways and classrooms and the CCH physical education program will continue to suffer. Warner trustees okay '.3 million budget department of education operate and maintain the newly created film library. The public school board agreed Tuesday with the stand taken by the superintendents and authorized Dr. Plaxton to conduct any necessary negotiations for the establishment of a film library in Southern Alberta. Dr. Plaxton suggested that a film library site chosen at this time would only be temporary since the educational films would likely be moved to the new provincial government building in Lethbridge which is scheduled for completion in about three years. The new provincial building will have about 6.000 square feet of space for an educational film library, he informed the trustees. WARNER (Staff) The County of Warner Tuesday approved its school committee budget for 1974 totalling Coan. Murray Holt said the school committee is budgeting for a deficit. Last year the school committee expended It received revenue as follows: school foundation program, supplementary requisitions, contributions, grants and subsidies, textbook rentals and other revenue from parents, and teacher residence rents. In answer to a councillor's question, secretary treasurer Ken Duncan said government grants have been set "unless they stretch it a bit more in the legislature.'' Today the annual meeting for county ratepayers was to begin at 1 p.m. in the Elks Hail here. There will be various reports and the financial statement will be released. It lists expenditures for 1973 as follows: Grand total expenditure of and municipal committee section, Mill rates were: Municipal, 30.33; school foundation program, 29; and school divisions Raymond separate, 19.15; Stirling, 13.94; and County of Warner, .21.03.
