Sadie Hawkins week Nov. 18 A wild goat milking contest, tug-a-war, hay ride, gunfight at ligh noon and a chuckwagon dinner are some of the highlights of Sadie Hawkins week at the Lethbridge Community College Nov. '8 to 23. Hay 'should be tested' Dairymen are being cautioned to seek an analysis of any lay stocks they plan to fall for their herd. Jerome Martin, animal nutritionist for the Alberta depart- ment of agriculture, says the quality of roughage being fed is important for all livestock but it is more important for dairy :ows to maintain milk production. The amount of grain and protein supplement fed to cows is directly related to the amount of forage which the cows eat. This voluntary intake, in turn, is related to the maturity and fibre content of the forage. The more mature the hay. the lower the intake. Also, the digestible protein and the digestible energy content of the hay decreases dramatically as maturity increases, said Mr. Martin.

Council agreed Monday to suspend charges until the two mobile home owners, Ross and Robin Walker, arrange to move their trailers from land owned by their father to a trailer court.

He suggested the county waive charges until there is space for two trailers in local mobile home parks. If the Walkers refuse to move once vacancies arise, he added, the county should prosecute.

Another reservoir irrigation council says More upstream water storage is needed to increase irrigation land in many dis- tricts in Southern Alberta, says a member of the Alberta Irrigation Council Advisory Committee: Jim Hajash of Brooks said Tuesday the Eastern Irriga- tion District in the County of Newell, the St. Mary River Irrigation District eastern block east of Bow Island and the Lethbridge Northern Irrigation District have reach- ed the limits of present water storage facilities. For these districts to ex- pand, water storage facilities must be expanded. Mr. Brewin said it isn't the role of the committee to make specific recommendations, such as the Three Rivers Pro- ject west of Pincher Creek, but to stress the need for such a facility. Walter V. Boras of Picture Butte said the use of water is being recognized more every day. He said the lack of water storage facilities on the major rivers in Southern Alberta means all water users lose spring runoff supplies. Mr. Brewin said the com- mittee has recognized the problem of a lack of upstream water storage since it was formed and recommendations for such facilities have been sent to provincial governments "in the 25 years I've been associated with irrigation planning." Another pressing problem discussed by the committee at a meeting here Tuesday dealt with power poles in fields ser- viced by irrigation sprinkler systems. Mr. Brewin said this is a growing problem in Southern Alberta and more information is being sought so the com- mittee can make a recommendation to government..

Jim Graham of Edmonton, manager of the Alberta irriga- tion secretariat, sat in his last meeting with the committee.
