Rocky Mountain Livestock Show Dec. 6-11 By RIC SWIIl.MtT Staff Writer The Rocky Mountain Live- stock Show, sponsored by the Lethbridge and District Exhibi- tion Board, will be held in the Exhibition Pavilion Dec. 6-11. This, the pilot project for Ca- nadian winter shows and sales, is an open international show designed to encourage the ad- ditional participation of breed- ers with small numbers of breeding stock and those who have not been bringing live- stock to major shows and sales. Gcorgp Chessor, director for uie show, said this is an uni- que opportunity for breeders to compare livestock and ex- change ideas. He said there are special ed- ucational features planned, in- cluding 4-H youth, school chil- dren and livestock breeds. New city hall regulations Handicraft Guild display and sale at Bowman Centre Handicraft Guild produces many homemade articles The Lethbridge Handicraft Guild is living proof that, in an when everything seems to be made of plastic, there is still an interest in producing real homemade articles. Much of the Guild's activity focuses on weaving and local residents had a chance Wednes- day to see what the weavers can do when the Guild held its annual display and sale. It was a good opportunity for people who enjoy color and tex- ture. "Riere were saddle blan- kets at least an inch thick and soft as eiderdown, rugs equally luxurious, colorful shawls, a purse woven with an authentic African pattern and any num- ber of other articles produced by the guild members. There are 30 members in the group this year, making it one of the largest amateur weav- ing groups in Canada and the western United States. Mrs. Helen Anderson (shown at the right in the picture, along with past-president Mi's. Ernest Guild president, said the group seems to be picking up younger members, evidence of renewed interest in the crafts. The guild has four large looms in its room at the Bow- man Arts Centre and about j three dozen smaller looms owned by individual members. ELECT EXPERIENCE For COUNCIL VOTE TOMMY FERGUSON Innrt.d by T. I. FERGUSON Police to seek sealed bids on unclaimed bicycles sale Andy Andrews, manager o f Hie exhibition board, said beef cattle, dairy cattle, sheep and swine will be shown in gov- ernment classifications, with the government paying half the prizes. Contributors have the option of nominating animals from these classes for the sale, while entries in the additional spe- cial classes must lie sold. En- tries for the classes close Oct. 15. Mr. Andrews said the aim is to provide good facilities and services at low cost to the con- tributor, with feed supplied at a reasonable cost and entry fees at a minimum. He said the sales commission is as low as possible, consis- tent with effective advertising and sales management. For many years, in conjunc- tion with Whoop-Up Days, the exhibition board has been ex- perimenting with different types of product shows be- cause, with people on the grounds, it is an opportune time to promote agricultural products. The Rocky Mountain Live- stock Show is to correspond with the show and sale which was held during Whoop-Up Days. Mr. Andrews said a large en- try of animals is expected from Alberta and Saskatchewan and the United States, along with many exotic breeds which have been prominent in Western Canada for the last few years. There will be no charge to the public for entry to the grounds or to any of the shows and sales. Mr. Andrews said the organ- izers are committed to provide good quality foundation live- stock for the buyers at a real- istic price for the seller.
