Gov't 'won't get ripped off on proposed south land deal By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer The province is interested in buying acres of Pin- cher Creek area land only if the asking price corresponds with the fair market value. Dr. Allan Warrack, minister of lands and forests, told The Herald the province is interested in any land any- where in Alberta that can be used as public land. "But we're not going to get ripped he said. He said the price asked for the 9.000-acre parcel by Burlington Northern Rail Road is "rather out of line according to appraisals done when the land was offered to the province. Several fish and game clubs, with the backing of the Alberta Fish and Game Asso- ciation, asked the province to buy the land 15 miles south- west of Pincher Creek to in- crease the amount of public land in Southern Alberta and to limit foreign investment in the area. Dr. Warrack said the re- quest from the fish and game clubs would be taken into consideration if any plans to purchase the land are made. "We have no policy of buy- ing land because it might be bought by a private, non- Canadian he said. He said when land is bought and used, if it isn't desecrated, it doesn't matter who owns it. Elmer Kure, director of en- vironment public relations for the provincial fish and game association, said in an inter- view that the association would like to see the prov- ince purchase the land. He said the par- cel is an excellent winter game range and is adjacent to a timber reserve. He pointed to the pie- shaped sector of public land running north and south along the mountain and foot- hill section of Alberta, stress- ing that the amount of public Project to study consumer affairs By JOANNA MORGAN Herald Staff Writer Even if the best things in life are free, the essential ones certainly are not. Most of us pay heavily for food, clothing, and shelter. Is it necessary that they cost so much? Can there be any- way to circumvent the high price of living? With these questions before them, a 14-week-long consum- er investigation and aid pro- gram began in Lethbridge May 14. Under the federal Oppor- tunities for Youth program, nine University of Lethbridge students received a grant to study food, shelter, and clothing costs. Food prices are a big con- Dirty photo contest set Albertans are being' asked to submit "dirty pictures" in a provincial government con- test planned to reveal pollu- tion eyesores in the province. The Save Tomorrow Op- pose Pollution program (S.T.O.P.) stresses that the contest is open to both ama- teur and professional photog- raphers. The subject of any picture must be pollution: it can be of any type concerned with air, water or landscape en- vironmental problems. The scene shown, however, must be one within provincial boundaries. The contest runs all sum- mer with entries closing Sep- tember 30, 1973 at midnight. Each entry must be accom- panied by identification of the problem shown, date and time of observation. No limit exists for the num- ber of entries a photographer may wish to make. Still pic- tures are sought, not slides, movies or art illustrations. Contest winners will be an- nounced in October.

Three students will visit all Safe- way, L-Mart, 7-Eleven and IGA food stores daily in Leth- bridge, noting the prices for a fixed list of groceries. The prices at some comer stores will also be inspected. Neil Kemp 20, a U. of L. economics student, heads the three man force in charge of analysing local food costs. Mr. Kemp said that the daily visit to each store takes about a half-hour. Their gro- cery list each day is a long one, including dairy products, eggs, fish and meat, fresh and processed fruits and vegetables, common pre- serves like jam, honey and peanut butter. The statistics obtained from these store visits will be catalogued weekly to show price fluctuations from store to store and from day to day. Two project members will concentrate on Lethbridge's housing situation. They will try to determine the current supply and demand for each type of housing, and tabulate the average rental and buy- ing costs within each classifi- cation. Two more students will ex- amine the city's retail cloth- ing stores and do a compar- ative price analysis for sim- ilar articles of clothing. From an office at 542 7th St. S. the group offers a con- sumer complaint hot-line. The number to call for people who wish to use this service is 328-9718. A three-day survey of downtown shoppers and those at College and Centre Vil- lage Malls began Thursday night. Questionnaires distri- buted by the group will at- tempt to get suggestions for the study from shoppers and teach the group when and where people buy then- gro- ceries.

The acres are more important to the people of Southern Alberta than North- ern Alberta because of the limited amount of public land in the area, he said. Also, government purchase of the land would keep it out of foreign control and ensure the availability of it for pub- lic use. He said the millon purchase price sought for the parcel would be a good in- vestment for the province. "The government is always giving money away for noth- ing anyway and here is a chance to do lots of said Mr. Kure. City laivyer moves into crown prosecutor's office A 30-year-old Lethbridge lawyer has been appointed to the crown prosecutor's office in the city, filling the vacancy left by the return of William Gorewich to private practice.
