Gerald Snow, a g r icultural supervisor for Canadian Sug- ar Factories Ltd., told The Herald most of the crop, sim- ilar in acreage to 1972, has been planted. He said the ground con- ditions are dry with some germination prcblems exist- ing. A good rainfall during the next week should assist the germination of the plants and make for at least an av- erage or better4han-average crop for 1973. Al Bothamely, provincial officer for the agricultural Manpower office in Leth- bridge, said 157 farmers on acres have placed or- ders for 1.289 native and non- native field workers through Fort Whoop-Up features mine train, artifacts Fort Whoop-Up opens June 2. It will be open to the public Wednesdays through Mondays from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. but will be closed all day Tuesday, Admission is 75 cents for adults, students, 35 cents, and children under six, free. The Fort Whoop-Up section of Indian Battle Park, a con- tinuing project of the Kins- men Club of Lethbridge, in- cludes a replica of the original Fort Whoop-Up, a mine train and a souvenir- concession area. Care and tours of the fort will be handled by university students. The staff will be knowl- edgeable in history surround- ing Fort Whcop-Up and also in much of the history re- lated to Lethbridge and Southern Alberta. The park is located six miles down nver from the original Fort Whoop-Up site. Many artifacts are housed inside the various rooms of the fort replica itself. Maps, photographs, utensils, weap- ons and machines are on dis- play. The Kinsmen have set up a short audio visual presen- tation in the common room of the fort. The film covers the brief history of Fort Whoop-Up from the early trading and gun running era to the coming of the North West Mounted Police. The electric mine train en- gine at the fort comes from the Shaughnessy mines and weighs close to seven tons. Coal cars are used to carry passengers. The capacity of the train and its four cars is 36 people. It travels about 10 miles per hour and a ride costs 25 cents. Funds used in maintaining and improving the fort have all come from sendee pro- jects of the Lethbridge Kins- men Club throughout the past six years. The club has invested money into the project since receiving original grants from federal, provincial and local governments during the 1967 centennial.

About additional workers are expected to sup- plement the registered work- ers, he said. Many of these freelance workers started ar- riving m Southern Alberta this week. The purchase of 11 new electronic thinning machines is expected to take some of the pressure of finding work- ers from the farmers this year, he said. Each machine will replace 45 workers Mr. Bcthamley said the large number of college and high school students "who pulled a lot of farmers out of a difficult situation last year" vhen labor supplies were limited should be back this year. He said many fanners were happy with the work of the students. The organized movement of laborers, mainly Indians from Northern Saskatch- ewan, could start the last week of May, depending on the weather conditions. If the crops need work sooner, the workers will be brought in sooner. Last year, tons of beets were harvested, result- ing in 147 million pounds of refined sugar. The sugar pro- duced in the Taber and Pic- ture Butte factories has av- eraged 148 million pounds during the past five years. Dwight Purdy, manager for Canadian Sugar, said the reported shortage of sugar throughout the world will not affect production in Southern Alberta. He said all the sugar pro- duced in Southern Alberta will continue to be sold on the Prairies because of strong competition from cane sugar supplies in other sec- tors of the country. He predicted that the short- ages in world sugar supplies should be remedied soon, bringing the price down to normal. 2 juveniles on probation Two Lethibradge juveniles were put on probation and another fined in juvenile court Wednesday for the thsft May 1 of two motor homos.
