Hog hoard may collect import fees The Herald Legislature Ihireau EDMONTON The Alborta Hog Producers Marketing Board may be given the power to levy a fee on hogs brought into the province, Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer said Monday. The fee would be similar to the "check-off" currently charged Alberta hog producers to pay for operation of the hog marketing board. Replying to a question from Jack Cookson the minister said a recent in- crease in the numbers of hogs coming into Alberta from Bri- tish Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba has not affected hog prices or markets here. He told the legislature Al- berla is attempting to create less restrictions on inlcrprovin- cial trade. Recent Manitoba regulations limiting the transport of hogs into that province has resulted in layoffs at Winnipeg Packing plants, he said. The restrictions are also being tested in the Supreme court of Manitoba, said Dr. Homer. V of L hurt V I JU-I t Sandals destroying south's heritage operating By RLTiY HAUCiENTTJER Herald Staff Writer Vandal s are destroy in Al- berta's most important his- toric sites, say provincial ar- cheologLst.s. Common types of vandalism include tourists carving initials over ancient pictograptis at Writing On Stone Park in southern Alborta. Hunters also take pot shots at tliem with riHes. Even more d e s t r u ctive, states a report published by the public advisory committee OD tha conservation of his- torical and archeotogical re- sources, "is vandalizing of sites which could provide scientific knowledge about our past." The collecting of artifacts is a popular hobby and lucrative business for some. Often these ars discovered below the surface or in cut- banks, just as they were left thousands of years ago. f Archeologists can learn about the people who created the ob- time period, basic economy, and in some cases their religion and daily life from these sites. i However, if the collectors get i to the site first, they often des- i troy all scientific evidence in tlreir "eagerness lo add" to collections. The report states: "Even In cases Tvhere a site has been dis- covered and supposedly pro- artifact hunters enter j the area eland estinely to j search for artifacts. I equipped with power I machinery and electronic gear, these people leave behind the shattered remains of a camp- i site or cairn ''which might I have added to our skimpy knowledge of man." The rich buffalo jump sites west of Fort Macleod and west of Cayley are prime examples of areas which have been bad- ly vandalized. "Such destruction is not limited to prehistoric the1 report states. Early trading post sites at many points in Alberta have been vandalized, many by pot hunters with "modem metal detectors, mechanical screens and other power equipment.'1 Existing structures have suf- fered from vandals cutting ini- tials ir> woodwork and some- times burglarizing the contents of such sites. The Environment Conserva- tion Authority of Alberta plans to conduct public hearings on the conservation of axcheologi- ca] and historic sites. The first is slated to be held in the lecture theatre of the Lethbridge Community College on May 25. Recommendations from the hearings are expected to be corporaled in new protective provincial legislation this fall.

A farmer plowed over the or iginal North West Mo un t ed Police headquarters site near Foil Macleod in 1569, ''because j it was in Ills way." Numerous other sites have destroyed by urban ad- vancement, highway construc- tion, pipelines, industrial sites, dams, rural development. Historic structures as Fort Edmonton, and various similar other sites have been demolish- ed to make way for dcvelop- J ment. i "Obviously, not every site j can be the report i states. j "There are, however, other sites which are too important to destroy." Snow causes cancellations Cancellations because of bad weather inconvenienced sev- eral organizations over the weekend.

The first phase of the uni- versity's development will be accomplished when the current building program is completed this summer, he said, But the extra program to utilize the new building, on top of the pared-to-the-bone ser- vices in the main building, will leave the university about short in operating rev- enue. He suggested some of the university's local financial cri- jlics had no hesitation in "lining j their pockets" with money brought to the community by I the university. The university, he said, was the major catalyst in strength- ening the local economy. Its original program and con- cepts, "w i t h adjustments." j were maturing satisfactorily, he said.

About 50 persons attended the three hour discussion of financial and other business for the year ended Dec. 31, I'm. In his report, Reeve n. W. Papworth, mentioning rising costs for transportation, educa- tion and health services, said "we must be willing to accept the fact that higher taxes ara inevitable." He added that the govern- ment allows an annual cost es- calating ceiling of six per cent and "if we go above this figure, then we have to get to plebis- cite in order to get money through taxation."
