(CP) Agriculture Minister Dave Stu- pich said yesterday the New Democratic Party government is preparing amendments to its controversial Land Commission Act, including the right of in- dividual appeal. Mr. Slupich, in a speech at the annual hanque tof the provin- cial bull sale, ssid other amend- ments -will include conditions of purchase, designation of land and cooperation with munici- palities. He said the proposed legisla- tion, which would set up a five- man commission to control land ue in the province, "is most misunderstood.' "I would not say it is con Mr. Stupieh said.

V.S. loses west dollar support An AP News Analysis By CARL HARTMAN BRUSSELS (AP) The deci- sion by the Western European countries to let their currencies iv, jv-i. fluctuate on world markets puts an end to the system of other countries supporting the United States dollar at fixed prices, a practice that has long been the joy of speculators. Some help for the dollar may be agreed on between them and Treasury Secretary George Shultz of the U.S. when they meet in Paris Friday, but the day seems past when the West German federal bank and otli- ers in Western Europe would say: "Whatever tappens, you can ba sure that we will buy dollars [or a fixed price." Over the years, speculators and businessmen have taken advantage of this promise and reaped huge profits. The last day on which they could do that was March 2, when the French national bank shut its foreign exchange window early after absorbing an estimated million It did not want. The West Germans gave up the day before after taking in a record billion. In the last two years, the floating: Six or more West Europeans in a group, other West Europeans and the Japa- nese separately. If and when their central banks buy dollars again, it will probably be a de- cision taken for a short period to meet a special situation. They want to keep the dollar from dropping too far, since that would give the United States an advantage over them in selling its goods.

(CP) An idea tor a game-bird farm has proved rewarding and lucrative for Edmonton- area sportsmen and a farmer in this district 60 miles north- cast of the provincial capital. Jim Snipe and his wife, Darla, established Ihe Edmon- ton Game Bird Club on 640 acres of marginal land about a year ago and stocked it with 600 six-week-old pheasant chicks last July. The birds, from a pheasant farm at Rosemary, AHa., were released in September and October to provide sport for club members. Jim said the idea for the private hunting club evolved from research and his interest in sport. He wrote his thesis for a master's degree, re- ceived from the University of Alberta, on the economics of hunting and fishing in Al- berta. He realized the potential, but still lacked enough infor- mation to proceed. He then got in touch with every gov- ernment, fish and wildlife agency in North America, ob- taining as much information as possible. TOOK LONG SEARCH about and the pens about While he obtained credit for the land, it was harder to ob- tain for the birds and the pens. However, he said it is possible to obtain credit on such things if the person can sell the lending agency on the project and demonstrate it has income-earning ability. Then there were various regulations to meet, including a commercial game-bird rais- ing licence, a shooting ground licence and a club licence. The hunting season for a dvate club is set between Jept. 1 and March 31 of the following year. A 40-bird membership in the bird club costs and the minimum charge for' a day's shooting, with five bids re- leased, is He charges on the basis of birds released rather than the number tor non-American central banks have shot up. Many of these have absorbed about In that time, the dollar has been devalued twice and was still going down last week. Now all major currencies will products are imported, and in vestors worried about the valu of their money are putting i into commodities. "I designed my wire pens, and drew up the plans before I even started looking for which had to have plenty of bush and long grass lo provide cover for the birds, he said. It also had to he near a potential market. Jim said he covered about miles before he found the right land at the right price. The land cost him recently. Library board I seats filled COALDALE (HNS) Harry Hoyano and Dr. Bryan Finni- gan were named by council to serve on the Ooaldale Centen- nial library board. Appointed to the County of Lelhbridge southern regional recreation board were Mrs. Robert Harrison and Dean Co- fell. They succeed Mrs. Gailen (Donna) Neville and Charles Bryant whose terms expired bagged because he feels it provides the hunter with more incentive. The recovery rale 75 and 80 per cent p p e a r s to confirm his theory. PART-TIME JOB The operation requires the couple's time for less than six months of the year. During the winter Jim is employed off the farm and spends some time filling orders for mounted pheasants lor which he charges to includ- ing the bird. Jim said he and his wife are able to handle pheasants a year without hiring addi- tional help and his production costs, Including interest, in- vestment and depreciation, is about for each bird. They receive a bird for those released to hunters and sell surplus birds for table consumption at a pound, dressed. Jim figures he may realisti- cally expect a to return for each bird. On that basis, Ihe Snipes are able to earn about for about five months work, even after de- ducting a full year's interest on their land investment of eight per cent. This year they are thinking about adding skeel shooting, providing overnight camping and picnicking facilities, a fish pond and facilities for snowmobiles. Will Paltison of the provin- cial agriculture department's economics branch says some lessons can be learned from the Snipes' experience. "Many farmers are having difficulty facing tho 'cost- price' squeeze that is affect- ing most conventional fann- ing he said. "Perhaps they should raise their sights a little and consi- der alternative uses of their such exotic alternatives as pheasants."

(CP) The number of workers at Mon- treal's new international airport here is expected to soar to by the fall as construction on the first phase moves into high gear. About 450 workers were at the site 35 miles north of Montreal in mid-February, with the num- ber expected to reach to by the summer. An. airport spokesman said work under way includes mu- nicipal services for the ocre airport area in preparation for the first phase which in- cludes two runways, a terminal building and administration and hotel buildings.

Only four of 20 Canadian re- gions were covered, he said, but advertising continued in areas where there was no chance for the prize. Lawyer Harvey Yarosky, rep- resenting Benson and Hedges, said the guilt was more of a technical nature than a scheme to mislead the public. Mr. Justice Kenneth Mackay is to impose sentences March 23.

The 2Vt mile runway runs through what was once of a total acres ex- propriated by the federal gov- ernment around Mirabel, for- merly Ste. Scholastique. The undersurface for the sec- ond runway is ready for final concrete surfacing to begin in the spring. Work on the run- ways is halted during winter months. DIGGING ADVANCED Mass excavation and pile driving have been completed for the passenger terminal, with structural foundation construc- tion well underway. Tenders have been called for the airport hotel, to be linked to the terminal building. About 20 hotel firms have expressed an interest in the airport. Bids are to be submitted April 3. Final design for the seven- storey administration building should be completed shortly, with construction expected to begin in the spring. Some delays were eneoun- ered in runway construction ast spring as rainy weather in the area hampered progress, spokesman said, causing the; jrogram to fall a few weeks be- lu'nd schedule.

No official price tag for the airport has been released, al- though estimates run as high as million. Airport officials say any esti mate is hypothetical since there is no way of estimating chang- ing cost patterns and the effects of inflation.
