By RIC SW1HART Staff Writer The federal government elevator on the eastern outskirts of Lethbridge is for sale or lease. The Winnipeg-centred Cana- dian Grain Commission, which controls five interior terminal elevators in Alberta and Sas- katchewan has served public notice that it invites proposals for the purchase or lease of the Lethbridge terminal elevator. Victor Martens, secretary and director of administration for the commission, said in a telephone interview with The Herald that the reason for the sale is strictly a matter of eco- nomics. "The elevator in Lethbridgc has been operating on a deficit basis for more years than on a profit he said. "The Canadian wheat board has used other terminal eleva- tors with a higher capacity in areas where there might be arger portions of tough grain."

He said the Lethbridge eleva- tor, built in 1931, is not suffi- ciently large in capacity and is not suitable for the quick move- ment of large volumes of grain to the Pacific Coast. "Another real reason for the sale or lease is that the Cana- dian Grain Commission is a government agency under the jurisdiction of the Canada Grain he said. "As such, the commission can't purchase grain directly from the producer. "The commission has to wait for the wheat board to order grain into the elevators on a car lot basis." He said the cost of using Lcthbridge as a storage ter- minal for grain to be shipped to Vancouver is 10 cents per bushel more than if the grain goes directly to the coast. i However, the Lethbridge ele- i valor is small enough and in a good enough area for the fa- cility to be used as a large country elevator.

Tony Dimnik, internal vice- pi (.sidcnt of the University of Lnihbridgo student's society, told the crowd, "There is noth- ing we can do to stop the blast but we must do all we can to make sure such blasts do not take place in the future." A proposal to hire buses and travel to the Coults S'weet- grass border crossing was greet cd with shouts of enthusiastic support from a large portion ol the crowd.
