Ph. 326-8161 1705 M.M. Drivo Ph. 328-7751 New deal for dairy farmers Southern Alberta dairy fann- ers can look for some special relief with the announcement from the federal minister of ag- riculture that the government is reducing the amount of money it skims from farmers to cover the cost of selling surplus dairy products. Agriculture Minister Bud Ol- son said Wednesday the lower "holdback" from dairy farm- ers for exploring market pos- sibilities abroad will add New docks for Lethbridge? In Uie wake of Hie quake and wave resulting from the Amchitka blast, the newly- formed Lethbridge Harbor Commission released plans today for an elaborate system of docks to accommodate ocean-going vessels. Under the direction of chief commissioner Ken Seamon, the commission intends to quickly make Lethbridge the "biggest little port on the new West Coast." With the help of a federal incentives grant, the city will begin construction immediately on 15 quays be- tween the old Secondary Sew- age Treatment Plant, now under 30 feel of salt water, and the old six-mile coulee, now tabbed "Holger Fraud- sen's locker." In the meantime, ship- ping Minister Long John Gerla announced an agree- ment between the city and the off-shore Bland of Pincher Channel. The agreement pro- vides for the establishment of a new lighthouse there, on the site of the old Shell Plant. Unreliable sources said the new facility would be called "Sea Shc'J Lignt- house." The rapid changes were a little too much for assistant city manager Ray MacPher- son who was seen shuffling out of city hall mumbling "How high's the water, ma- The new deep-sea fishing li- cence department at city hall reports a brisk new business.

HAVE NOW MOVED TO Suite 101 Professional Bldg. PHONE 328-7121 4 Tjf.W-1 J. I A million to the dairy farmer dur- ing the 1971-72 financial year. The move, which affects milk shipped for manufacturing milk products and not for fluid milk, is being made because of im- proved markets for dairy prod- ucts both at home and abroad. The holdback was set at 26 nts a hundredweight for all April and May, 1971 deliveries and 20 cents a hundredweight for deliveries from June to present. The new rate would amount to 10 cents a hundredweight. The 10 cent levy is applied retroactively to last April 1, so farmers will get a 16 cent re- bate on their April and May deliveries and a 10 cent re- bate on those from June to the present. There are 44 producers in Southern Alberta who will be affected by the rebate. At the United Irrigation Dis- trict Co operative Ltd. cheese factory in Glenwood, 26 produ- cers will share, on a pro-rata basis, using the 16-cent and 10-cent rates. At the New Coaldale Cheese Factory Co-op Ltd., 1G produ- rers will share, pro-rated, 819 at the same rebate rates. Ned Davidson, manager of the Glenwood factory said this will mean much needed added income for the producers. Joe Slinko, manager of the Purity Dairy Co-op Ltd. plant in Lethbridge said there are only two producers affected by the rebate who ship to his plant. j Al Wiggins, manager of verwood Dairies, said the re- bate doesn't affect his plant be- cause it only handles fluid milk. He said the rebate would be given because of the improved outlook in the dairy products markets. The government sets tne re- bate rate after forecasting the market for the year, to ensure that it has enough money on hand in order to compete in foreign and domestic markets. If there is any money left in the fund, it is given back to the farmer. Mr. Wiggins said he looks for a smaller rebate rate for next year because of the improved market outlook.

By LAHIIV BENNETT Staff Writer Threats against American firms and their subsidiaries in Canada have been accepted locally with mixed feelings. The Shell Oil refinery near Pincher Creek will have extra security precautions in effect this weekend. Plant manager Glen Myers said he had been advised by RCMP that an Edmonton man had phoned a Vancouver newspaper Thursday and said if the Amchitka detonation was carried out, 50 American sub- sidiary companies in Canada would be blown up. "The extra security measures arc being taken to keep unau- thorized persons out of the plant said Mr. Myers. Officials of Gulf Oil Ltd. ot Canada, which operates a major gas plant at Pincher Creek, told The Herald they were aware of the blanket threat to American-owned com- panies, but they declined to say what, if anything, t.hev do- ing about it An official 'cst- ern Refinery ai Kevin, nlont., said extra security at his plant would be provided by off-duty personnel. "The news reports vre have heard probably blown out of proportion, but we are at- tempting to take extra mea- sures just in case." said A. H. "Doc" Morris, area refining manager for Great West Oil in Kevin, Chinook and Shelby. A Montana oil pipe-line firm official said his company is always concerned with security and no additional security would be used as a result of the threats on several Shelby Cutbank area plants. "All we know is what we have seen on the television, read in the papers and heard on the radio. are always concern- ed vritli possible sabotage and always have tight security on our said H. H. Beb- crly, Cutbnnk, Montana, plant manager for the Texas Pipe- line Company. Lelhoridpe and district bulk gasoline plants of American owned firms have announced no special security measures as a result of the threats. The manager of the Texaco Canada Ltd. bulk plant at Blair- more said he planned no addi- tional sefurity measures. Martin Balog said, "We have the police lo give us security, and if these tanks are blown up half of Blairmore will go with them." City police officially an- nounced patrols would be the same as usual, but a little more frequent in some areas. An RCMP official of the south- ern Alberta subdivision said was aware of no special mea- sures being taken by the force. The Pincher Creek detach- ment, near two large refber- ies, would make no comment about any special security plans in their area. They did say, ver. all of the affected Businesses had been advised of the threats by members of their force.
