Public views invited on motor recreation site the ART STUDIO ON FIFTH AVENUE ARTISTIC PICTURE FRAMING ARTISTS' SUPPLIES ART GALLERY l! 710-5 AVE 5 LETMBRJDCE-ALTA By HERB JOHNSON Staff Writer Persons with an interest in the use of motorized recreation vehicles have been invited to make their views known to City Manager Tom Nutting. Mr. Nutting said Thursday he would like to see some "public discourse" on the problems associated with recreation vehicles, including motorbikes, all-terrain vehicles and a host of other machines. He said there was a possibility a public meeting might be held, perhaps later this summer. Control of recreation vehicles has been of some concern to the city recently. Council this spring prohibited them from using city-owned land in the river valley - this includes almost all the valley within city limits. Alderman Jim Anderson at the last meeting of council strongly suggested some action New at CAMM'Sl For Fun in the Sun See Our Wide Selection Of summer sandals White Sandali with Black hoel Cross over strap tandalt Flat heel sandals Wedge heel sandals LADIES' CLOGS Wonderful to slip on by Dr. Scholls - in Tan, New White Perf Clog*.

High laco boot in Tan with Crepe Solo by the city to provide an area specifically for recreation vehicles. Mr. Nutting said the matter was under consideration and that several meetings of the administration had been held. A proposal may be made to council in a month or so, he said. He added that he personally does not think the situation would be resolved by the city making a gift of land for the free use of such vehicles. There is not enough land available, he said, and free use will simply encourage the purchase of more machines, adding to the problem. Mr. Nutting also wondered about the validity of claims that scarring of the coulees by recreation vehicles affected the stability of the land. He suggested that it might be feasible to set aside one area of coulees for recreation use just to see what would happen. The question of providing a site for motorized recreation vehicles was discussed by the parks and recreation commission Wednesday, but no action was taken. Commission chair man Dr Tom Atkinson suggested a public meeting on the matter might be held, but a decision was deferred until next week's meeting of the commission. Bill Brown, parks and recrea tion superintendent, said there were hazards involved that must be taken into considera tion. What happens, he asked when the site's usefulness is destroyed through over-use?

SHOES By ROB TURNER Staff Writer The Poppy Family hasn't improved a great deal lately. In fact, it proved in Lethbridge Thursday it's still the same merely fantastic rock-music group that it has Always been. Making its first public appearance in almost five months, the Poppy Family showed 1,500 enthusiastic fans why it is one of Canada's most versatile and competent pop-music groups. Showing none of the evidence of two days without sleep, Terry and Susan Jacks, Sat want Singh (percussion) and Norm McPherson put on- a first-class show, performing all of their hits and eight or nine other songs besides. From the blues number, House Of The Rising Sun, to a hillbilly tune, It Will Take A Long Time To Forget, to Buddy Holly's rock-classic, Everyday, the Poppy Family displayed its seemingly limitless talent and variety. Terry, displaying the optimism necessary to succeed in the music business, introduced the group's smash single Which Way You Going Billy? not as its only million-selling record but as "our first" million-seller. In an interview after the con cert, Terry said the group had just come from New York where he had been presented with four awards from Broadcast Music Incorporated (BMI -an international song copyright organization) for two songs he wrote and published The songs, That's Where Went Wrong and Which Way You Going Billy? were among ' the top 50 songs played and bought in the United States during 1970. The Poppy Family's five-month layoff for rest and recuperation came to an end with its Lethbridge concert Terry said. The group's last appearance had been New Year's Eve in Disneyland. The Family will play a concert in Calgary tonight and also have dates scheduled in Edmonton, Regina and Saskatoon during the next week. Also next week, the group will fly to Toronto to tape two television shows; one, a Kenny Rogers and The First Edition Pigs lost in blaze Fire early today destroyed the pig barn and some pigs on the farm of John Vandenbrink, one half mile northwest of Monarch, Lethbridge and Nobleford fire departments responded to the call at 3 a.m. The pig barn, wood frame building 56 feet by 58 feet, was destroyed. Latest figues indicated Mr. Vandenbrink lost 260 weaner pigs and 30 brood sows in the fire. Fire officials believe the fire was caused by heat lamps in the southwest corner of the barn There was no estimate of damage available. There was apparently some insurance carried on the building. Cattle prices hit high, no trend change seen Special and the other, a Nashville North segment. Both shows will be screened this September. The Poppy Family expects to release both a new single end a new album in July. The album will be called Poppy Seeds while the title of the new single is still undecided. In addition, Terry said, a song entitled Someone Must Have Jumped may be released as a single under his own name. He described it as a very raucous "rock" number. Appearing in the concert along with the Poppy Family were the Stratus Singers and the Stratus Faction, both of Calgary. Although lacking the same renown of the Poppy Family, the Stratus Singers more than held their own and seem finally destined, after more than four years, to becoming a top Canadian recording act. Bars, fairs and exhibitions will probably be a thing of the past for therm very soon. The Stratus Faction gave a somewhat disappointing performance after the build-up they had been given. Much of the blame, however, can likely be placed on the miniscule stage which scarcely could hold the 25-member group and a loud set of instrumentalists who effectively drowned out the vocalists. By RIC SWIHART Staff Writer The market price for Canadian cattle now is at the high point of a three-year trend with nothing in sight in the near future to cause a trend change. A federal livestock official in Lethbridge said steers this week were selling at $1-$1.50 per hundredweight higher than for the same period last year with heifers selling 50 cents higher. He said cows were about the same price with feeders snowing a substantial drop in price of $l-$2 per hundredweight. Figures released by the Canada department of agriculture showed prices in Lethbridge for choice steers at $34.20 per hundredweight with good heifers selling for $29.75. Good cows sold for $23.75 and good heavy feeder steers selling to $34. Officials said there are two main reasons for this apparent boon for cattle producers. "The main run on calves anticipated has levelled out. Gordon Ross, regional livestock supervisor for the provincial department of agriculture said, officials never expected calves on the market until June 15 a few years ago, but this year a few were on the market in April. This is due to much earlier calving. "Also ranchers are getting better calves genetically, re Real estate sales show sharp hike Residential real estate sales in Lethbridge jumped almost 95 per cent the first four months' of this year compared with the same period last year, the Lethbridge Real Estate Board reports. Multiple Listing Service statistics show listings increased 15.1 per cent to 366 from 318, sales increased 60 per cent to 128 from 80 and the value of OUR OSCAR $26 "Don't complain about my fees at the Henderson Lake Golf Club. Remember what it cost the astronauts to play golf on the moon." increased to $2,474,281 from $1,270,568, up 94.7 per cent, The percentage increases compare with the Alberta total increases of: .6 per cent more listings, 19.7 per cent more sales, and 25.6 per cent in crease in dollar volume. Lethbridge recorded t h greatest percentage increases of any community with the ex ception of Medicine Hat. Medicine Hat listings went up 4 per cent to 129 from 124; sales went up 86.3 per cent to from 22; and dollar volume in creased 95.3 per cent to $604 029 from $309,500. The increase in the Lethbridge Real Estate Board MLS business has been attributed to the influx of new people Lethbridge, lower mortgage in terest rates and the avail ability of more mortgage money. suiting in larger calves, marketed earlier." Another interesting observation in the cattle scene in Lethbridge is the lighter weights of carcasses being shipped from the packing houses. Reports indicate the carcass weight of animals this month has been 50 pounds lighter than those shipped out the first part of January. This has resulted in a substantial drop in actual tonnage of beef being processed. There are about 55,000 cattle killed weekly in Canada and with the size of the carcass lower, the loss of actual beef reaching the market could be equated to 3,000 head of cattle. When asked about the effect of the lower tonnage of beef available to the meat buying Scenic Drive clean-up is planned The city's public works department has plans for a cleanup campaign along Scenic Drive, hopefully with the assistance of a local youth group. Details have not been arranged and no date has been set. The department effort is part of a provincial campaign prompted by Gordon Taylor, minister of highways, and in eludes a clean-up of other streets by department staff alone . public, Mr. Ross said it is a matter of supply and demand. "When the tonnage is down, the supply is down, and the demand for the lower supply increases, with a resulting increase in the price of beef," ho said. "This price increase for beef cattle has not been passed on to the consumer, mainly because of the extremely depressed price of hogs. Hog prices in Lethbridge Wednesday averaged $19.54 which was high In the province for the day. "Today, the price of hogs on market is below the cost of production and this has meant a lower price in the stores. This has acted as a brake on the demand of beef and has helped keep the price of beef from skyrocketing. He said the over-production of pork the last two years has resulted in strained storage conditions which has been helped slightly by a lower production rate this year. This should help the price of hogs on the market. Commenting on a report from Bud Olson, federal agriculture minister that the price of hogs should increase late in July or August, Mr. Ross said this could be a seasonal increase helped out by the lower production rate this year.
