Horner protested. "I didn't ike the story at all. It makes -ne look like some cowboy out if a 1935 western movie." While the article might have aimed to paint a favorable pic- ure, it sounded instead "like Robert Stanfield's "basket of fruit liberalism." "I've had arguments with Mr. Stanfield from time to he said, "I don't argue with that. If you're from West- ern Canada, you've got to argue from lime to time." Mr. Hargrave and Mr. Hurl- burt have so far supported Mr. deau during a September visi to Lethbridge that this are; would be belter off by sending more Liberal MPs to Ottawa The Opposition MP sail southern Alberta is "doin well" under federal program such as department of region a economic expansion industrial incentives. However, he said the Tru deau government still "tries I use Western Canada to sen' lie needs of the East." The seizure this year of lermit books from Weslei armers was an example anti Western actions in Qtt va, said Mr. Horner. 11ERT HARGRAVB an attack on a Westerner by an he said. He conceded to the maga- zine rs statement lhat the Crow- foot MP is head of a sizeable rebel faction within the Con- servative caucus, opposed to business. Farm income has re- mained relatively stable for many years, while the cost of producing the same amount of goods has risen considerably. Throughout the week, special programs promoting Alberta products will be carried through schools; the news me- dia will promote products through advertising and ed- itorial content; and consumers will be able lo see Alberta prod- uct in all the stores. Dr. Homer said more focus on agriculture is needed since the industry is the largest use? of manpower in Alberta. He said 63 cents of every Gross Provincial Product dollar comes from agriculture.

Money for the drug and al- cohol education program, which has been in progress since March on the Blood and Peigan reserves and in was stopped last Friday. However, the four field work- ers on the project, Mike Kee- wathi, Annie Cotton, Albert Yellow Horn and Nortert Bruised Head, will continue to work without pay: "We can't let our people down." The job they have been do- ing, which they say is just start- ing to show results, is to coun- sel and advise Indians witl drug and alcohol problems. One direction taken was lo conduct a survey to see wh> ndians get into problems with IcoHl, Annie Cotton said. 'Some use alcohol to experi- ment, others because there is lOthing else for them to do at tome." For these people, the project vorkers have been trying to :eacb that "alcoholism is an ill- ness." The Indians with the prob- lems have come up with some suggestions: for the teenagers on alcohol, set up something on (he reserves such as 4-H clubs; for all ages, establish drop-in eer.fres on the reserves. If (he drop-in centres work, drinking is sure to be reduced, the workers believe. They are asking Mr. Macka- sey for an extension of their program on a more permanent basis. "We can't hope for a sim- ilar program next year because no one knows who will be elect- ed to the federal government" (and be responsible for approv- ing come of family farms in province. Dr. Homer said the province previously produced product and filled what markets were available, dumping the rest wherever possible. Now province must produce more goods and go after the markets to sell that production. He said the government has assessed the product situation during the past few years, with the result that more local prod- ucts are now being processed in the province. He noted that all commodity groups had been aided fi- nancially Ihrough grants which helped them "go out and do their own thing." Speaking about the controver- sy surrounding the domestic crushing of rapeseed in the province and the Canadian wheat board, Dr. Homer said Ihe attitude of the CWB to pro- cessing grains is not conducive to improving industry in rural Alberta. He said there Is an increas- ing market for raw oil from grains throughout the world and "therefore, the crushing ot the grain should be done in Al- berta." Rapeseed Is on on-board grain controlled by the CWB and Ihe quota set by Ihe board has hampered the supply of raw product to the plant own- ed by Western Canadian Seed Processors Ltd. in Lcthbridge. The provincial government feels the movement of grain produced in Alberta and pro- cessed in Alberta plants should be controlled by Alberta. He said there is now a short- age of cattle in Canada. The in- dustry has not realized lhat the standard of 1 i v i n g throughout Ihc world is increasing, wilh the result that there Is a need for more red meal. Part and parcel with this, ha said, is the need for more feed. One of the contingency plans of his government is to work for forage banks in an attempt to maintain a movement of cattla to the demand.
