She's even learned how to talk foot- ball wilh her customers. -Phil Faulds Photo Elevator centralization fears said unnecessary Canada's country elevator grain gathering system will not be replaced by mammoth in- land terminals, according to Al Bealtie, manager of public re- lations for Alberta Wheat Pool. The Grains Study Grcup re- port has not been released, but inland terminals likely won't be recommended, Mr. Bcattio told 50 agribusinessmen at a grain handling and marketing seminar Tuesday. Mr. Beattie said the inland terminal concept is attractive from an engineer's point of view but it "falls down in the social aspects." He said delivery from the farm a distance of 1C to 15 miles in a two or three ton truck is practical for most district roads. But. the requirements are dif- ferent if the delivery is lo be made on a strict schedule over a distance of 70 miles in multi- wheeled trucks requiring very substantial expenditure on road construction and maintenance, he said. The expense for road con- struction in Alberta has always been largely borne by the prop- erty owner in the municipality grain producer. "The economics of the situa- tion do not justify greatly in-1 creased expense for rural roa( he said. One farmer suggested many grain producers now haul loads long distances to feed lots for "the few pennies they get for the trouble and expense." He said there was no reason for any farmer to quit. Mr. Beattie said that in this instance, the farmer was pick ing his time of delivery at hL convenience and with only the best weather conditions. He said it would IK a differ cnt picture if the fanners hac to haul at any given hour in any given weather condition. It is considerably easier haul loads while the dirt roads are frozen hard.

Everyone had belter slop complaining about Ihe wind, or "We got rid of the snow, and now all we hear is complaints about the wind. If it doesn't stop, we're going to turn the snow back said a some- what fruslratcd weatherman this morning. Okay, everybody cut it out. Just because the winds gust- cd up to 98 m.p.h. in Pincher "reck Tuesday and up to 68 in Lethbridge, that's do reason lo complain. We can expect more of the iame for at least Ihe next (lay or two. And, it will continue to c warm. The high today will hit the 55 mark while Ihe overnight low will be in the 35 degree range. It will be windy but not as bad as yesterday. The weather- man is calling for winds of 25 to 30 m.p.h., with giists to 45 m.p.h. Tuesday's high was 52, while the low last night was 41. So don't have a harsh word about the wind. After all, its great for keep- ing alligators off 3rd Ave. MENTAL ILLNESS The Canadian Mental Health Association cstimales that half a million Albertans or one in every four have suffered mental disorders at least once in their lives.

A group of Lelhbridgeites o] Irish descent will meet Friday night, and others are going to Calgary to attend a banquet given by the St. Patrick's So- ciety.

Mr. Eeallic said the "rain producer is actually a .small- scale industrialist producing a product for sale on the world market. He faces all problems which face manufacturers. W i t h the need of the pro- ducer to compete on the world and domestic markets, and with (he need to guarantee a dependable supply and ade- quate volume of product, changes in Canada's grain transportation and handling systems are vital. Friendship Centre just barely' open Public donations are "just aarely" keeping the doors of ;he Lethbridgc Friendship Cen- tre open. To dale, none of the money promised by other provincial iricndsliip centres in February received, it was noted at a meeting of the IS'.itive Friendship Society d Southern Alberta. Directors from six provincial friendship centres said at the annual Al bert a Na t i ve Friend- ship Centre Society meeting ttiat they would attempt lo squeeze eno u gh funds from their budgets to keep the cen- tre here open until the begin- ning cf the new fiscal year in April. Reggae Newkirk, of Pincher Creek, the president of the pro- vincial associ ation s ays the money may not be coining. The boards of the indtvidua centres "feel it is not in their best interests to contri bute money to another centre." The centres fear that the Tom McLeocl new NDP president The Letbbridge New Demo cratic Party, meeting at the Labor Club Tuesday night elected its new officers for 1972 and decided to hold its fed eral candidate nominating con vention in the later part o April following a new member ship drive.

Buchanan secretary Hal Hoffman treasurer, Charlie Buijert organizer, and Doug Poile campaign chairman. NDP officials said they did not expect their candidate to win the contest to represent the Lethbridgc riding in Otawa.

Mr. Newkirk said he will urge other centres to aid the Lethbridge centre through joint program financing. Through this method the Lethbridge centre will he able to conduct Us programs while not be arin g the ful 1 cost of them. Tut all this together with the need for an economic return and something must be done to alleviate the situation, he said. The producers need an effi- cient and thrifty system of moving grain from the farm lo the marketplace. Mr. Ccattie said that during the latter 1950s, too much ol the gram handling system was concentrating available stor- age on products for which there was a slow turnover. This applied to terminal stor- age as well as space in the country elevators. Unless grain storage costs arc to be paid to someone oth- er than producers, the system can't afford to encourage in- creased storage facilities and the development of large stocks of grain in anticipation of sales, he said.
