(Bud) Olson said Thursday that expanding markets would allow for an increase of 20-25 per cent in Canadian barley production in the next crop year: Mr. Olson's recipe for grain planning, given at the annual meeting Thursday of the Leth-bridge Federal Liberal Association, also called for retention of the current level of production in rapeseed (four million acres), oats, rye and flax. He told the audience of about ICO that marltets could bear an increase in barley from the present IOV2 million acres to 13-15 million acres. Mr. Oson indicated 37 million acres of land are currently in summer fallow and should his proposals be followed, 18 million acres would be available for wheat production. "We could manage easily with about 20 million acres." The agrictdture minister also announced that wheat quotas next year would not be based on summer fallow acreage as has been the case since Operation Lift went into effect in 1969. He said the basis for quotas had not been set, but a new system was being devised through consultations of his department with Otto Lang, newly-named minister of immigration and manpower who has continued in charge of the Canadian wheat board.

STUBB5 So, you're allergic to something? If so, it m^y help you to know you are a member of a very large 'club' because approximately half the population is allergic to something . , . whether they realize it or not. The most common results of allergy are four very well - known illnesses . . . these being (1) hay fever, (2) asthma, (3) skin ailments, and (4) digestive disturbances, Reac'/ons to an allergen vary greatly with the individual person exposed to it. For example the average person enjoys eggs, but there are many people who can be made violently ill from eating a small amount of egg in a salad dressing or other foods. If you do have reason to suspect you are allergic, pleasC: remember that self-diagnosis can be not only futile but possibly dangerous. Your doctor is the only person trained to treat your allergies! Free parking? Here at Stubbs Pharmacy, the answer is, "Of Course!" And a place for you to sit while we're filling your prescription - of course.

(Bud) Olson said in Lethbridge Thursday government officials in all provinces are striving for the speedy expedition of Bill C197. Mr. Olson explained the purpose of the Bill is to provide enabling legislation which would allow for the establishment of co-ordinated national agricultural mai-keting board with uniform regulations for all the provinces. He has agreed, he said, that beef could be excluded from the scope of the act. He said the lack of such a board ovar the past 20 years has been the cause of many marketing problems in the country. "We have not had legislation that was legal or binding with the same regulations for all." He said government officials are very concerned about certain provinces in Canada that have placed trade restrictions on poultry sliipments from other provinces. "At the moment, the bill looks like the most appropriate solution to the problem, he said. OPENING SMriES FOR LCC - Most senior Alberta education administrators were on hand for tiie official opening of $2.2 million in new facilities at the Lethbridge Community College Thursday. Shown in the new administration building's entrance lounge are, left to right. New Facilities Opened Education minister Robert Clark, LCC President Dr. C. D. Stewart, college board of governors chairman Jerome Robbins and Alberta colleges commission chairman Dr. Henry Kolesar. LCC Role Said Vital To South Food Store To Replace Tavern Art Batty, president of Shoppers' World Ltd., has announced that a tavern originally included in the plans for a $4 million hotel development in Shoppers' World has been deleted and will be replaced by a grocery store in the south end of the complex. A small beverage room is to be located in the hotel itself. Mr. Batty said residents of the area had expressed concern over the possibility of traffic congestion associated with a large beer parlor and had also wanted to have a grocery store in the area. The Lethbridge Community College is part of the vanguard of an extensive post-secondary education system in southern Alberta, Education Minister Robert Clark said at the LCC opening ceremonies Thursday. "You are commended for your ingenuity, your foresight--and your stick-to-it-iveness in the process of acquiring your college facilities," he said. Mr. Clark was featured speaker at opening ceremonies for $2.2 million in new college facilities, including the new administration building, new shops areas, new library facilities and other expanded areas. About 200 people were gathered in front of the administration building for the occasion. Mr. Clark said Lethbridge was "doing things in an exciting way" in all facets of its educational programs, including public and separate schools, the university and the college. He warned about the dangers m losing sight of a broad educational base for students, and said too much specialization could lead to the development 0 f "a one - dimensional man" who knew nothing about life outside of his own narrow interests. "In society today we run the risk unless we're very careful, of having students go through educational institutions, and in the process of pushing them tlirough, all the students who finish the program feel their respo.isibUity is then just in the area of their studies." An example, he said, would be someone who designs an in-dustrial plant, but refuses to lution it produces because it was not in his area of study. "In the future of this province, in all post-secondary educational institutions it is vitally important that we are sure we provide the opportunity to provide not one-dimensional men, but people who are well-rounded and concerned with the quality of life, and for the things around them. "I hope in the future you will maintain your community base here, not just in Lethbridge but in all of southwestern Alberta take responsibility for the pol-' as you have in the past." 'Worse Than Stupitr Olson Laces Opposition Stand On Agricultural Marketing Bill COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERrNG LTD. 909 3rd Ave. S. Ph. 327-5454 By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer Federal Agi-iculture Minister H. A. (Bud) Olson said Thursday it would be "worse than stupid" to refer a new agricxd-ture marketing bill to the constitution, a suggestion raised by opponents to clear alleged problems of federal and provincial jurisdiction. The bill, C-197, proposes the establishment of national marketing agencies and a national marketing council. It was introduced in the House of (Commons last spring and is currently still undergoing study by t h e parliamentary agriculture committee. Mr. OLson, spealdjig at a local Liberal aiinual meeting, said the government "is not interested in who wins some legal case in tlie comls." It would requu-e unnecessary time between the bill's applica- tion to the constitution and its enforcement in national and in-terprovincial trade. "A lot of people are distort-, , . . , ing the bill, either wilfuUy or t ^ral-provmcial The fedei-al and 10 provincial governments were unanimous in backing C-197 in the last fed-meetings, and through lack of knowledge." | "I can't think of anything else Sewage Meeting Closed To Public DINE and DANCE TONIGHT AND SATURDAY MARV QUALLY'S SUNSET TRIO 8:00 to 12:00 p.m. NO COVER CHARGE!

Tlie meeting, originally scheduled for Sept. 14 and then postponed to Oct. 5, was to have been open to the public. Mr. Nutting said the decision to keep the meeting closed was based on the need to maintain the rapport that had been established between the city and industry in their discussions on how the cost of the new secondary sewage treatment plant I would be distributed among in-; dustry and the general public.

Results of the meetings with industry would be made public, he said, when the new sewage bylaw comes before city council. 11 that's come up where tlie governments have agreed." Mr. Olson said talks wth producers of almost every commodity during the first months of his holding the agriculture portfolio indicated their problems always boiled down to marketing and its price structure. The minister, MP for Medicine Hat, suggested the federal government's Operation lift was not the unilateral move it had appeared to be. The government held "many informal talks" beforehand with other wheat-producing countries. It was known on the international market that "all these countries would also cut their production." Operation Lift offered farmers a cash settlement for former wheat acreage left fallow, because of Canada's huge grain surplus. Australia cut production by 40 per cent in 1968-70 and the U.S. decreased it by 15 per cent in both years, he said. -BIC PEN OFFICE SPECIAL.

By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer To hold or not to hold nomination meetings in the two Lethbridge ridings - that is the provincial Liberal question. Dr. W. J. Cranley, a city physician and president of the single Liberal executive for East and West Lethbridge, said Thursday party members would "probably not hold nomination meetuigs" for the next election, expected to be called by the Social Credit government in 1971. "Frankly I don't think anyone in his right mind would run" provincially as a Liberal in Lethbridge. The party "has no leader and no one has shown any interest in running." Dr. Cranley said if interested persons did show up, nomination meetings would be held. However, Peter Petrasuk, president of the Alberta Liberal Association, said he was "quite confident Lethbridge would be running two candidates." Mr. Petrasuk, who attended Thursday night's annual meeting of the Lethbridge Federal Liberal Association, said if the local president "doesn't want nomination meetings to be held, he should resign." A Calgary lawyer, Mr. Petrasuk, said the Liberals' campaign organizer Brian Stevenson of Calgary would be in the city in about two weeks to "look over the local situation Remand In Von-Capital Murder Case Joan Agnes Bayon of Lethbridge was remanded to Oct. 9 without election or plea this morning in magistrate's court on two charges of non-capital murder in connection with the deatli:; of two city infants. Miss Eayon was charged in early September with the noncapital murder of two-year-old John William Cotton, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wilf Cotton. A second charge was laid one week later in connection with the 1967 death of five-month-old Andrew Green. The baby's mother, SteUa Green, left the city in 1967 and her last known address was in Hong Kong. She has not been located yet by city police. Miss Bayon, a professional babysitter, was previously remanded Sept. 4 for 30 days examination in the Alberta hospital at Ponoka. and interview potential cand-dates." He indicated he ex-pected the majority of the party's candidates to be named early in the new year.
