Speaking to about 150 dele- gates and guests at the Alber- ta' Barley Growers convention held in Calgary Friday and Sat- urday, an official of the Brew- ing and Malting Barley Re- search Institute saicf the grain delivery system is currently under rev-ow. The statement came as some- what of a surprise to the con- vention as only last spring Otto Lang minister in charge of the Canadian Wheat Board elected to retain the system until the end of the 1971 crop year. At this time the regulations were to be reassessed. Apparently it is felt by some people Ibat the Barley-alcohol is not economical CALGARY At the present time, using conventional pro- cedures, the barley-alcohol the- ory is not economically sound. This was the statement given by Dr. K. Goering of Bozeman, Mont., at the Alberta Barley Growers convention being held in Calgary this weekend. Dr. Goering has been work- ing with the theory of barley- alcohol since the end of Second World War and feels new meth- ods will have to be employed if barley-alcohol is ever to be- come competitive with the cheaper and easier to produce ethylene (petroleum by-prod- The idea of barley-alcohol taking over some of the mar- ket from ethylene is attractive to both U.S. and Canadian bar- ley producers. Dr. Goering said in the U.S., there are about gallons of industrial at cohol from ethylene used every year. The amount of grain al- cohol used is similar he says, but this is only because of gov- ernment r e g u 1 a lions which state that alcohol used in quor beverages must co from grain derivatives. Both are alcohol and chem- ically identical, but people seem to resent the thought of drinking something made from oil. Dr. Goering said there are several ways to obtain alcohol from grain, malting, by the use of fungi and by the use of bac- teria. Dr. Goering says the trend is towards the use of. bac- teria. One of the main problems with obtaining alcohol from grain seems to be the expen- sive handling of useless by- products. One hundred eighty pounds of sugar obtained from barley will yield 92 pounds of alcohol and 88 pounds of the useless compound carbon diox- ide. In addition to the problem of useless by-products, Dr. Goer- ing says barley contains less starch than corn, soft and hard wheat and therefore the yields of alcohol are correspondingly lower. He adds that research will continue with barley, with the hope of finding a market for the carbon dioxide and other by-products or discovering a new method of extracting the alcohol from the barley. Apparently the search for cheaper industrial alcohol is not confined to barley and oth- er grains. Dr. Goering says the re- search people at Bozeman are conducting tests on weeds and have found what seems to be relative success with common cow cockle. We are going on the assump- tion that if man can produce a substance synthetically, then nature probably produces it naturally. All we have to do is find the right link, said Dr. Goering. system is unfair to the major- ity of the farm communities. Under its rulings the maltsters are allowed to pur- chase all their required barley from any area they feel is yielding high quality malting barley. By this token some areas may not sell any barley. Under the new proposal of the over delivery quota com- mittee the maltsters may have to buy barley from more than one area and would not be al- lowed to monopolize uistrioU. The maltsters on the other hand feel a clause of this type would result in a depreciation of liquor brewing quality. The theory of the over de- liveiy quota is that a fanner may deliver a car of barley above.and beyond his quota if a demand for the barley should arise. This delivery has no ef- fect on his quota. What is the proposal submit- ted to Mr. Lang by the over quota committee as an alterna- tive was called an advance quota system. The exact work- ings of this system have not been publicized and there is concern among the maltsters about how it may operate.

Represented at the two day meeting being held on the Uni- versity of Lethbridge campus are members of city council, ;he Oldrnan River Regional Planning Commission and the Economic Development Corn- lission. A main objective will be the review of the city's general plan, adopted in 1964. The pol- icies put forth .in the plan, the city's first, were intended to govern development for a 20- year period, but were to be re- viewed every five years. The need for revision has been accentuated by two de- velopments since 1964 the University of Lethbridge and the' federal government's re- gional development incentives act, both of which have had an effect on the city's growth. The committee's agenda in- cludes discussion on present and future needs, civic ad- ministration and the city's west side development. Jury suggests look at services of the Blood Indian Hospital A coroner's jury in Leth- bridge Friday recommended further inquiry into services of the Blood Indian Hospital at Cardston and suggested staff should include experienced se- noir personnel, especially on the 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. shift. The jury, called to consider the death Sept. 11, 1970 of 15- month old Frank Calf Chief Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Calf Chief of the Blood Indian reservation, also said that com- munication between those re- questing medical attention and doctors and staff should be fur- ther investigated.

It was presided over by Alberta's Chief Coroner Dr. M. M. Cantor. It was the jury's opinion that bad weather was a factor in the infant's death. It was snowing and blowing the night the par- ents took the infant to the hos- pital. It took them hours to get to the hospital, a distance of 22 miles. The infant died of heart fail- ure due to fluid and electrolyte balance through diarrhea and vomiting associated with acute gastroenteritis. Dr. Cantor said the attorney- general's department had asked for (lie inquest following repre- sentation to the government by letters from individuals and agencies suggesting unusual circumstances in the infant's death. The Red Power Association, Harold Cardinal, head of the Alberta Indian Association, and Senator James Gladstone of Cardston were among the spon- sors of appeals to the. govern- ment. Tte infant became ill at home the evening of Sept. 10 about 10 p.m. It. had two con- vulsions at home and the par- ents started for the hospital.

A locked door at the hospital apparently caused some delay getting in. The infant was ex- amined by the nurse on duty. She checked with Dr. Fred Spackman oi Cardston by tele- phone. She indicated the infant had no serious temperature or fever and suggested the parents take the baby home. They protested because of the weather and waited in the hall of the hospital. A second call was made to the doctor and the infant was admitted. This was apparently about 6 a.m. The parents, the jury was told, were refused use of the regular hospital telephone (said to be hospital policy) and were given access to a telephone downstairs which was out of order. A second call was placed to Dr. Spackman. The infant was given medicine for diarrhea. About 8 a.m. the baby, being watched fay the parents appar- ently stopped breathing .again. The parents looked for the nurse (a staff change had oc- cured) but she was apparently at a coffee break. Mouth to mouth was given by the father, with no response, and the baby put in an oxygen tent. Dr. Allan Van Orman arrived at Hie hospital about this time, examined the baby and suggest- ed it was dead. He worked in vain for about 45 minutes with various revival methods. Dr. through a one hour session at the University of Lethbridge, Mr. Benson easily fielded ques- tions on the economy from an audience of about 350. No quer- ies on the War Measures Act were raised. He .said the government has had a "great deal of success" on the price side of the economy and the cost of living is holding its own. He expected national produc- tion to level off by the end of the year and begin to increase in 1971. The biggest problem was "worrisome" high unem- ployment, but he said it would ease up during the next 15 months.

In an interview minister predicted that for the first time" in five years invest- ment in Quebec would, in the near future, be equal or higher to the national average. This would be due, he said, to investors' belief in the stabil- ity of the Bourassa government. Mr. Benson also indicated the Canadian dollar would continue to float despite the Internation- al Monetary Fluid's request that it be pegged by the gov- ernment. Canadian exports have con- tinued to run ahead of imports and Ottawa is wary of pegging the dollar at an "inordinately high value." It would be allow- ed to float until it reached a 'sustainable level."
