Mr. Klassen injured his back and hip in the fall and is recovering today in St. Michael's General Hospital. He was walking across a piece of plywood on the top level of the construction project atop the building at 4th Ave. and 8th St. S. when the board apparently slipped pitching him onto the next level. The only way to get him off the roof was using the fire department's aerial ladder. Staff, students succeed No-smoke pact intact Cross my heart and spit to die and many other vocal commitments are spouted by people wishing to kick the smoking habit. But. then- days or hours of or non smoking are usually short-lived as their determin- a.ion to quit smoking grad- ually succumbs to a desire for another puff. Such is not the case for the staff and stu- dents of the Hamilton Junior High School. The school today marked its 25lh consecutive school day of no smoking on the school grounds. It is hoped the students and staff will be able to hold to the March 20 mutual agree- ment until the end of the school term in June, said principal Kendrick Smith. If the agreement is broken in the remaining 24 days of school this term, it will be the students that let the school down rather than the staff, he said. He said some students have shown signs of weaken- ing by bringing tobacco to school but so far none have broken the agreement by smoking on the school grounds. The staff and student's of Hamilton mututually agreed to quit smoking cigarettes on the school grounds in a March school assembly meet- ing in which Mr. Smith asked his students if they would stop smoking if he did. They all agreed.

Wayne Smith of Hillspring, former director for Southern Alberta to the Albarta Hog Producers Marketing Beard, said the producer prelection fund would act like an insur- ance policy but would be con- trolled by the producers. Central Agencies of Cam- rose signed a contract: to in- sure Alberta hogs for a lower premium than the former in- surance company for a one- year trial pariod. The company is now claim- ing that the premium is too low, that it is losing money on the deal. It wants out of the deal or an increase in the per hog premium for the remaining six months of the contract. Producers now pay five cents per hog while the company wants to charge 7V4 cents per hog. Mr. Smith told about 40 key producers from Southern Al- berta that the insurance com- panies are willing to take the good years but not the bad years. He said he didn't fesl any sympathy for the firm. Mr. Smith said the mar- keting board should hold the company to the lower rate long as it can and then estab- lish the .prcaucer protection fund. Calgary drug seminar to test rehabilitation A two-day drug seminar to test the relevance and effect- iveness of drug rehabilitation services is to begin Friday in Calgary.

Farm, pasture land still needs moisture By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer A general lack of moisture reserves throughout Southern Alberta is concerning district agriculturists but nobody is pushing the panic button yet. This consensus was reach- ed at a regional meeting of agriculturists in Lethbridge Tuesday. While some areas have re- ceived up to one inch of pre- cipitation within the past week, all farm and pasture land is still in need of rain. The Lethbridge weather of- fice reports one half of an inch cf rain fell in the dis- trict during April. This csm- birod wu'h 6.7 inches of snow amounted to 1.04 inches of precipitation. Although this is only slight- ly below Hie April normal precipitaticn amount of 1.36 inches, the previous months of dry conditions in the re- gion have left very little moisture reserve in the soil. During the recent series of storms, Pincher Creek area fanners and ranchers bene- fitted most with a total of 2.8 inches of precipitation. The agriculturists say the livestock industry is being af- fected most at this time. Eldon Edward, supervisor for Southern Alberta grazing reserves for the provincial department of lands and for- ests, said the capacity of pas- ture land to successfully feed animals in the area will be severely limited unless mois- ture is received. He said added to this is the fact that requests from South- ern Alberta ranchers and farmers for livestock allot- menls to the governmerl; and community grazing reserves have increased considerably from 1972. There have been 100 to MO new applications for use of the pasture land for grazing and the majority of the fonn- er pasture land users have re- quested additional numbers of cattle be allowed entry. Mr. Edwards said this means there are 50 per cent more applications than the de- partment has land to serve. Same areas of grazing land are better than others and lie advises the use of these areas first. He said this is a difficult point to get across because many ranchers just want to get rid of their animals in the reserves. "In times of dry weather conditions, there has to be a change in think- ing by all he said. Murray McLelland, district agriculturist for the Warner and Letihbridge counties, said some ranchers are selling more animate than normal at this time of the year because cf the pending pasture short- age. Blair Shaw, district agri- culturist for the Vulcan area, said many other ranchers are keeping their animals on grain rations longer. This .allows them to preserve the pasture land until grass growth will permit better use of the grazing facilities. The Foremost area is the hardest hit this spring, ac- cording to district agricultur- ist Delton Jensen. He said ix> moisture lias bsen receiv- ed east of Etzitom from the spring rains. The land in his district is now being farmed and seed- ing should be in full swing by the first of nexl, week. He taid moisture conditions are adequate to germinate the crops but more rain will be needed to help them progress favorably. E. S. P. FOX Certified Dental Mechanic FOX (Leth.)

Taber district agriculturist Murray Wilde reports some farmers have completed their sesding operations, some are not yet 6'arted and in some locations sugar beet crops are out at the ground.

Producer-owned hog plant studied The feasibility of establish- ing a producer owned hog slaughter plant in Albsrta should be studied, say South- ern Alberta producers. About 40 key producers from Southern Alberta Tues- day presented the motion to recently elected zone direc- tor Jack Hutchinsoa of War- ner following a report indi- cating nothing was actively being done about the estab- lishment of a plant. Southern Alberta hog pro- ducers are particularly un- happy with the present mar- keting system, under which they say the large packing plants simply push a button io stop a pricing mechanism at a point where (toey feel they can afford to buy hogs offered for sale. The producers feel the packing plants are banding together to set the price, de- Business teachers to meet Teachers of business edu- cation from high schools and colleges will meet May 11 to 13 at Banff for the annual meeting of the Alberta Busi- ness Education Council. About 150 delegates are ex- pected to attend the 13th an- nual conference at the Banff Springs Hotel. Guest speakers will include Sally Merchant, consumer consultant for the federal government; Dr. Harland Samson, United States lectur- er and author; and Judge T. G. Zuber, Ontario Supreme Court. The fourth Charles DeTrp Award, for outstanding contri- bution to business education, will be presented May 12 to an Alberta teacher. feating the principle of open market purchasing. The producer-owned plant would offer a strong competi- tion for the provincial hags, helping to maintain the price of hogs at a higher level. One producer suggested Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Albsrta combine efforts to- ward a plant to make it large enough that the large packing firms c o u 1 d n't squeeze it out of the market. He felt a small plani couldn't operate for long if the large packing plants paid higher prices long enough. They could buy the hogs in the vicinity of the plant, causing undue freight casts for the small plant. Ken Schultz of Cardston, a marketing board delegate from Southern Alberta said such a produce-owned plant likely couldn't survive on the open market in the face of strong competition from tine large packing firms. He said the hogs for the producer-owned plant would likely have to be contracted, wUi producers guaranteeing to deliver hogs to the plant regardless of what the mar- ks't price was at the time of the delivery.
