They come down and tear your house apart." Mabel Collar thanked Coun. John Viens. councillor in charge of the fire department, and council for the firefighters" quick action in saving her barn.

NATAL (HNS) CBC Television plans to feature the mining and reclamation technology of Kaiser Resources Ltd. in a program early next year on the resurgence of the coal in- dustry in Canada. The presentation is to be one of a new, half hour series. This Land, scheduled to start in January, 1975, on the national CBC network. Filming of the part Kaiser Resources is to have in the presentation took place at the Sparwood Operations. Film crews recorded sur- face and hydraulic mining, coal preparation and reclama- tion activities of the company, and interviewed Walter Riva. vice president, mining operations and Louis Cherene, superintendent, environmen- tal control. In addition, the TV crew filmed and interviewed Jim Hearn, operator of a 200 ton truck, and Jim Grocutt, retired employee and veteran coal miner of Sparwood. Writer Anthony said the Kaiser Resources operation was selected to represent the new era of mountain coal min- ing in Canada because of the company's reputed mining technology and reclamation program. The Sparwood operations will have about a six minute part in the production that will trace the history of coal min- ing from Xova Scotia the West, from the early use of coal as domestic and commer- cial fuel to its current demand ior steel making and electric energy production, and possi- ble future applications. The CBC's fi! ning at Sparwood covered a shovel truck operation; a blast at Harmcr 2; surface in- stallations of the hydraulic mine; the Eikview prepara- tion plant; the McGillvray pit and tailing pond reclamation projects: the nurserv and train loading. The director said the presentation on coal will probably be telecast in mid January. The series, This Land, is scheduled for an evening or prime time slot. The exact day and time is ex-' pected to be announced in the near future.

BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) Vandalism of signs on Highway 3 and in the Hamlets of the Crowsnest Pass area continues to be a serious problem, officials say. J. A. Glowach, District Highways engineer of Lethbridge and department of highways and transport of- ficials are expressing concern that signs removed and broken down by vandals could contribute to serious motor vehicle accidents resulting in loss of life. The officials have pointed out that each sign is so erected for a reason and motorists who are unfamiliar with a particular highway or street system rely on signs to forwarn them of unforseen hazards. They asked Crowsnest Pass residents to be alert for in- dividuals tampering with highway signs. EDMONTON (CP) The consulting firm of Hu Harries and Associates Limited says summerfallow is an inef- ficient use of land. In a report prepared for the land use forum, the firm says 25 per cent of the cultivated land in Alberta is being used inefficiently as summer- fallow. The position was contained in one of more than a dozen technical reports prepared for the land use study now being conducted throughout the province. The consulting firm also said government agriculture policy should be aimed to meet the needs of 35 per cent of the farmers in the province, who produce more than 80 per cent of the goods. The report said about 40 per cent of the Alberta producers received less than in 1971, not enough to provide a satisfactory living standard. Farmers earning less than the limit should ex- pand, find part time work away from the farm or get out of farming, the report ad- vocated. Agriculture policies that set floor prices, control supply through marketing boards or provide cash compensation for crop losses are stop gap measures that provide no long term solution, the report said. Although farm incomes have increased greatly from 1971, recent cost increases and inflationary effects leave the relative financial position of farmers almost unchanged. The consultants also said summerfallowing reached a peak of 36 per cent in 1970, compared with about seven million acres in summer- fallow of the normal 28 million cultivated acres. The information was men- tioned in a suggestion that Alberta could double its agriculture production without opening new acreage. The firm suggested full use of existing cultivated land, plus full use of herbicides and pesticides, is required. It is difficult to understand why almost two thirds of the cultivated crops are not fer- tilized when it has been demonstrated so often that a dollar invested in fertilizer will return at least or un- der normal circumstances. The report also said Alberta farmers must become more efficient if they are to meet demands anticipated in the year 2000. It was predicted that Cana- dian population would reach 30.5 million by 2000 and that beef and poultry demand per capita will double, while pork and egg demand will remain stable. The report estimated per capita consumption of 161.6 pounds of beef, 55.5 pounds of pork. 70.5 pounds of poultry, 32 pounds of eggs and 770 pounds of milk, butter and cheese. Building banned on lots CRANBROOK. B.C. (HNS) Ten owners of barely extra municipal scenic expensive lots have found themselves cornered by regional district zoning rules which prohibit issue of building permits. The half acre lots developed by Tomka Holdings Ltd. are in the vicinity of 14th Avenue south of llth Street. Above them and south a keyhole development already supports several prestige houses, each with its own water supply and septic tank. Their construction was legal because they were already there when the RDEK Zoning bylaw was proclaimed July 21. 1973. The whole development area amounts to 30 acres and the bylaw sets a five acre site minimum for a residence, unless it has community water and sewer installations. The city's new million water system will join 14th Avenue in their vicinity in 1975, but it is still under Regional building rules. A solution, city council suggests, would be immediate annexation into city limits. Developers have reportedly offered owners refunds but have found owners not interested, in view of land "a lues which continue to rise. The right taste. The right price. Ihe right rye.
