Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta II THI IITHBI1IDOI HMAID 7, 1970- Coldest Oct. 7, Mercury At 13.5 People in the Leihbridge area awoke this morning to the cold- est Oct. 7 on record, with the mercury at 13.5 degrees abovfi zero. The old mark was !S de- grees above, set in 1925. The unexpected cold snap took its toll. Many cars not yet readied for the first bite of win- ter gave only strangled moans at starting tunes and the sugar beet harvest coming into its eighth day (stopped last week due to excessive heat) was halt- ed by the cold. Beet digging will resume when the frost clears. Southern Alberts is still un- der the influence of the cold arctic pressure system respon- sible for the snap. The forecast Wednesday calls I for sunny skies during the day, toning cloudy by eveing and a chance of scattered snow flur- ries overnight. The Lethbridge .veather office reported 1.4 in- ches of snow from midnighi Monday until five p.m. Tues- day. The water equivalent was .12 of an inch. Other points throughout southern Alberta report snow and precipitation amounts as follow: Pincher Creek, two in- ches, equivalent .08 of an inch; Waterton, 11 inches, equivalent .6 of an inch, Medicine Hat, one inch, equivalent .07 of an inch. The high and low tempera- toe Wednesday should be 45 degress and 30 degrees. Winds will be light. Temperatures Thursday should be similar. Commission Fears Report By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Farm Writer Tom Krahn, of Brooks, secre- tary manager of the recently formed Alberta Fresh Vege- table Commission, said Wed- nesday, implementation of the Federal Task Force on agricul- ture report could seriously af- fect Alberta's vegetable grow- ing industry. The vegetable commission formed early in 1970, is design- ed to direct the vegetable in- dustry of Alberta. Mr, Krahn said, "The repnri fails to recognize the existence of a vegetable industry in Al- berta, other than potatoes. This simple lack of recognition is most unfortunate since we feel the fresh vegetable industry is just starting to blossom and could be of real imporance in supplying Canada's future popu- lation with fresh and processed vegetables." Mr. Krahn said that the great- est concern to the commission is the recommendation that all trade restrictions be removed beween Canada and the Uni- ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Denial Mechanic Metropolitan Bldg. 328-4095 ted States on carrots, tin-nips, onions and cole crops, thus al- lowing free trade between the two nations. "This recommendation is ob- viously directed towards the eastern producers who are in close proximity to the large ur- ban centres on the eastern sea- board of the United States. The implemenattati of this recommendation would un- doubtedly benefit the producers of Ontario, Quebec and the Mar- jtiiues since it would make them more competitive with the U.S. markets. "We are not opposed to free trade, said Mr. Krahn, "but we do not feel that an industry such as ours which is just de- veloping should be put into di- rect competition with other well established production areas." The commission feels that the Washington Oregon areas would become Alberta's com- petition and have many advan. tages over Alberta, such as longer growing seasons, cheap- er or no storage costs and more research. The commission suggests that the present protection giv- en vegetable producers through federal tariffs is not excessive and should not be removed, at least until such time as Alber- ta becomes a major export pro- duction area. NEW HOMES AND AN EYE FOR SAFETY Albert Yellowhorn Jr., housing super- visor for the Peigan Reserve supervises construction of one of 12 new homes slated.for the reserve. Three homes were destroyed by fire on the reserve last year, prompting a fire prevention and fire safety course. Peigan Chief Maurice McDougal was instru- mental in getting the course. Seven Peigan Indian councilors attended the course to take information back to the reserve in an attempt to up-grade the fire safety for homes. A total of 20 men and women from both the Blood and Peigan reserves attended. Indian District Has Course In Ways Of Fire Prevention A firs prevention and fire safety training course for the Blood Peigan Indian district was completed recently under the direction of M. C..Tucker, fire prevention' aiid fire pro- tection program administrator from the office of the dominion fire commissioner. The course at St. Paul's School on the Blood Reserve, co-ordin- Correction A story appearing in the Tuesday Lethbridge Herald concerning students' assistance loans and grants, in reference to this year's University of Lethbridge awards had termi- nology reversed: the story should have explained that the per student average as- sistance this year comprises in grants and in loans. The Herald regrets any in- convenience this error may have caused. ated by H. A. Reid, supervisor of adult education for. the dist- rict placed emphasis on home- fire prevention and home-fire safety. Twenty men and women took the course which stressed fire fire inspection of the homes and schools and work with portable fire extinguish- ers. The course was prompted by a request by Peigan Head Chief Maurice McDougal for fire pro- tection after three homes on his reserve were destroyed by fire last year. Mr. Reid said the model fire protection code for Indian Bands was of particular interest to the participants because it showed them what they needed to know to make their homes safer. He added that G. A. Long- worth, forest superintendent for Crowsnest Forest and A. A. Hereford, fire technician for Crowsnest Forest, who concen- trated lectures on bush and grass fires, offered to train a fire inspector for the area. Assistant instructor John Run- cic, head of the fire and safety section of the technical services branch of Indian affairs showed four films during the sessions of the course dealing with liquid fire safety inspection and dwelling inspection. The course participants, in conclusion, decided to look into the fire safety of then- schools, especially the fire drills prac- ticed by the students and fire safety equipment used.
