Drive Ph. 328*7751 Students earn camp funds The Hamilton Junior High School concert Anything Goes, held Wednesday night, netted the school's outdoor education students more than $350 toward their June camping trip to Cypress Hills Provincial Park. More than 600 people attended the variety show, produced by Hamilton Grade 9 students Lori Ully and Cari-Ann Wick-ey. About 30 students and the school's band were involved in the shows. The students still need about $300 to cover the cost of the trip, in which about 80 students will spend three to five days' in tine park learning wild- erness survival and techniques, as well as studying the wildlife and archeological remains in the area. Total cost of the trip will be about $750, and other money will be raised through sock hops and an "insomnia-in" where sponsors will pay students for the number of hours they can stay awake. Stabilization plan More federal funds for grain By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Agriculture Writer Revised proposals to the Prairie Grain Stabilization Plan as tabled last October by Otto Lang, minister in charge of the Canadian Wheat Board, will see less money coming from the producers pocket and more from the federal treasury. At an interview today in Lethbridge, Mr. Lang said under the new proposals, farmers would contribute two per cent of eligible receipts - down from fiie three per cent figure originally suggested. "The government would now be committed to contributing four per cent of total eligible cash receipts, or double the producers contributions. The government would also lend to the fund any amount required to permit the fund to meet the obligation of the plan," said Mr. Lang. In addition, the proposed stabiliza t i o n program would add a minimum of four per SEMEN UNIT-Southern Breeders Ltd., the first com-. mercidl producing unit in southern Alberta, opened Thursday. The $110,000 station is located three miles south of Lethbridge on the Coutts Highway. The unit received its first bulls Thursday, three Polled Hereford, one horned Hereford, one Black Welsh, one Black Aberdeen Angus and one Red Angus. Semen from the bulls, all owned by Alberta cattle breeders, will not be available until April 18, but the station does handle semen imported from other stations. The unit has a capacity for 15 bulls, and quarantine facilities for 10 bulls. There are only four other semen producing stations in the province, all in Calgary. Two more are planned for the province, in Edmonton and Cardston. Word awaited on grants Municipal reports deficit By JIM MAYBIE Herald Staff Writer The Lethbridge Municipal Hospital ended 1970 with a deficit of somewhere between $958 and $29,027, the hospital board was told Thursday night. The board decided to wait until it hears from the provin- cial government on what grants it can expect for this year before making a decision on how much it will requisition the contributing municipalities. After the grants are determined (within a week or so) the board will decide whether to requisition for just last year's LETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LIMITED STAN WORBOYS, President  OFFICE DESKS  OFFICE SEATING  FILING CABINETS  STEEL SAFES  TYPEWRITERS  ADDING MACHINES  VERIFAX ft BANDA  PHOTOCOPIERS  TIME CLOCKS  STENOCORD DICTATING MACHINES  STENORETTE DICTATING!

If the latter is the course of action taken, LMH District taxpayers could conceivably be facing a requisition in excess of three mills. The hospital spent $11,971 more than it received last year. Expenditures totalled $2,995,-166 and revenue was $2,983,195. If hospital patients last year had to pay LMH's operating costs of $2,916,824 it would have cost them $49.25 a day, $345 a week or $1,527 a month. If they also had to pay the capital costs (annual payments on borrowings and interest for construction of the hospital's facilities) it would have cost them $53.15 a day, $372 a week or $1,648 a month. Operational costs per patient per day were $37.04 for salaries and $12.21 for others. Nursing costs of $1,265,670 accounted for 43.3 per cent of the operating costs. The operating costs minus $2,892,987 operating income left an operating deficit of $23,837. Expenditures included: general administration, $263,048, up eight per cent; patient service departments, $992,963, up 12.8 per cent; emergency unit, $54,-165, up three per cent; special services to patients, $668,098, up 14.6 per cent; supplemental services to patients, $221,434, up 16.4 per cent; general service departments, $568,989, up 2.2 per cent; plant operation, $81,- 834, up 1.2 per cent;' maintenance, taxes, $61,484, down four per cent; debenture interest, $73,151, down from $78,955. Total expenditures of $2,995,-166 were 9.3 per cent higher than the $2,739,993 spent in 1969. Of the total expenditures, wages accounted for $2,170,129 or 72.45 per cent. The remaining $825,037, representing 27.55 per cent of expenditures, includes $87,000 in paid employee fringe benefits. Revenue included: provincial government, $2,198,503, up 14.8 per cent; in-patient income, $225,358, down $62,000; outpatient income, $362,543, up $80,000 or 28.2 per cent; other income, $123,640, up $31,000; de benture interest $73,151; district requisition, $29,027. Total revenue of $3,012,222 was up 9.2 per cent, comparable to the 10 per cent increase between 1968 and 1969. Jim Ailsby president LCC students Jim Ailsby, a Lethbridge Community College business education student has been elected president of the LCC student council for its 1971-1972 term. The college had a 55 per cent turnout in the election, with 435 students voting. Wilf Lane was elected external vice-president and Jean Boon internal vice-president. Only a handful of votes separated the successful candidates from their nearest opponents. Jennifer Fisher was' elected council secretary, Joey Andro-kovich as social convener and Jay Reardon as public relations officer. Ron Taylor was previously named treasurer by acclamation. Representatives of the various LCC schools will be elected in the fall. A referendum asking students whether or not they wanted to rejoin the 40,000-member Alberta Association of Students failed to get the necessary two-thirds majority in agreement, garnering only 243 affirmative ballots - 56 per cent.

Mr. Corbet was an officer in the southern Alberta local 112th Artillery Battery during the Second World War. He was a graduate of the Royal Military College, Kingston, Ont, and of the University of Alberta. He is survived by his wife, who will live in Calgary with a son. cent to receipts by payments from the federal government to the plan. The stabilization plan was formulated to ensure that Prairie incomes remain adequate for steady cash flow in the economy even hi years of low cash receipts. The plan would pay to grain farmers who hold Canadian Wheat Board permit books in the year for which payment is made, an amount equal to the difference between total eligible farm cash receipts for that crop year and the average of such receipts for the preceding five years. The revised proposals would see the stabilization plan begin on Aug. 1, 1971, instead of Aug. 1, 1970, as earlier suggested. A special payment of $100 million is to be made to Canadian wheat board permit holders in 1970-71 as a transitional payment for the crop year in which neither the Temporary Wheat Reserves Act nor the Prairie Grain Stabilization Plan are in effect. The special payment would be divided among eligible permit holders whose permit applications were received by March 1, 1971, in proportion to the acres stated in the 1970-71 permit book. Mr. Lang said the important question remains as to whether further government action should be taken to increase the return to farmers from the sale of his grains or oilseeds. "If this is done, the source of the additional money must be either the Canadian consumer or the Canadian taxpayer. Export &aler can only be made at competitive prices so increased returns from the consumers could only be achieved by having a higher price for Canadian buyers than for foreign buyers," said Mr. Lang. He said there are many substantial social and economic questions to be answered be-fore an appropriate government action to deal with total returns to grain and oilseed producers can be determined. "The special payment of $100 million this year, combined with improved sales will assist grain farmers markedly this year, and permit time for the careful consideration and discussion required." Green Acres board seeks home site OUR OSCAR Bread price up a cent The wholesale and retail prices of bread in Lethbridge have been increased. McGavin Toastmaster Ltd. in the city reported it had increased the wholesale price of bread one cent in urban areas and two cents in rural areas. Three major bakeries in Edmonton announced s i m i 1 ar price increases and all said the increases resulted from general production and distribution costs. A check of several grocery retail outlets in Lethbridge Friday morning showed consumers now pay 28 cents for a 20-ounce loaf of bread, up one cent from 27 cents prior to the increase, The board of Green Acres Foundation decided Thursday night to pursue location of a site for a third senior citizens' lodge for the area. In the past the foundation has been told it is high on the province's priority list for another senior citizens' lodge. A few weeks ago the province announced it has budgeted $1.8 million for construction of four lodges in Alberta. John Landeryou, Lethbridge's member in the legislature, told The Herald in a telephone interview that he would be surprised if Lethbridge wasn't included as one of the sites for a new lodge. Ray Speaker, minister of social development, told The Herald Wednesday that Lethbridge citizens would know "within a month" if the city is slated for its third senior citizens' lodge. Other provincial officials connected with Mr. Speaker have indicated they don't know why the announcement is being held up. In the event Lethbridge is selected by Mr. Speaker, the Green Acres Foundation board, which directs the operation of the Golden Acres and Green Acres lodges in the city, decided to proceed with efforts to locate a suitable site. The board considered a letter from the Coaldale town council indicating interest in having the lodge built in that community. The $450,000 lodge would contain 30 private rooms and 10 double rooms. Present lodges Cadet news RCSCC Chinook Sea Cadets will practice rifle range shooting at 10:30 a.m. Saturday. All cadets are asked to fall in at the RCMP barracks. each have 14 singles and 18 doubles. Administrator Don LeBaron reported the foundation has a waiting list of more than 100 persons desiring accommodation in a lodge. Several city residents have had to be located in lodges in other communities in the area because of the demand and waiting list for accommodation in the present city lodges. Several occupants of present facilities, now in double rooms, have expressed desires to have private rooms, Mr. LeBaron said. If a new lodge is built in Lethbridge, it was indicated that they and city residents now residing in district lodges would receive preference in relocating in the new facility. In other business the board was informed that the city lodges had been inspected by government officials and were found to be "well maintained." the ART STUDIO ON FIPTW AVENUE "Make things disappear!

C. STUBBS The word "analysis" is used in all walks of life, but its meaning when used in chemistry, is one which may be of interest to you. When a chemist makes an analysis of a chemical compound, he is separating it into its elements to deter-in i n e their amounts and natures. Our word "analysis" has come down to us from the ancient Greek words, "ana" (which meant 'through') and "lusis" (which meant 'loosen'). Tnese two words, used together, meant loosening through investigation -to solve a problem. So, analysis, in the chemical meaning of the word, means the reduction of a chemical compound into its component parts . . . the solving of the problem.
