The 20-aere field of Warwick SL 209, a Canadian developed hybrid variety, was harvested under the auspices of the re- cently formed Alberta Corn Commission, the organization responsible for the establish- ment of grain com in the south. John Calpas, regional agricul- turist, and orie of three board members, said the prospects of establishing grain corn on a permanent basis will get boost in view of strengthening corn prices in the U.S. and from plans calling for the building of a distillery in southern Alberta. Mr. Calpas said much of the corn harvested this year will be used as samples for business firms interested in the produo tion of distillery, and feed corn. There were about acres of grain corn planted in south- ern Alberta this year. Nine Fires There were nine fires re- ported, in Alberta Thursday, six in the north and three in the south.

Stubbs So you've been reading and hearing about 'goof balls' and 'pep pills' about all the (rouble they are causing and have wonder- ed what they are? Well 'goof balls' are barbiturates, and 'pep pills' are amp hetamines. Both these drugs can be, and are, used for construc- titve medical purposes when they are legally prescribed by a licensed physician. They are, on the other hand, actively dan- gerous when used illegally be- cause they remove all the nor- mal controls exercised in civil- ized behaviour. Much of the senseless crime we see and read about these days is direct result of illegal use of these powerful drugs. Free parking? Here at Stubbs Pharmacy; the answer is, "Of And a place for you to sit while we're filling your prescription of course. All this and our friendly, conscien- tious service is always ready for you here at 1500 9th Ave. S. die ducks on his stock-watering pond. After shooting five of the small scaups the shooter got back into his red half-ton truck and drove off. The pond is less than 100 yards from the house, Mr. Veres said this morning, and the range from the "sports- man" to the silling ducks was about 20 feet. Maybe it's. just as well he shot on the water, other- wise we might have lest our picture he said. Mr." Veres visited the pond after the shooter left and found fora- dead birds floating on the water and a fifth wounded bird crying in agony. "This happens every Mr. Veres'said. "Some guys are ev.en so brazen as to drive through our back yard shoot- ing at pheasants. This has hap- pened in previous years." The scaups are very tame and a person can walk up to the edge of the pond withoul them taking flight. After the shooter left, Mr. tried to scare the birds away but they would just fly BO and return immediately to the pond. Frank Soinerville, regiona' fish and wildlife officer, said that under the Wildlife Act such a shooter could be charged with waste of migratory birds which carried a penalty of to on conviction. The shooter could be further charged with shooting within 200 yards of a dwelling and sub- ject to another fine. Mr. SomervHle advises land owners to obtain as much to formation about shooters as possible. Vehicle licence num- bers and personal descriptions would assist law enforcers in tracking down hunters who break the law. Mr. Veres said his land was not posted early this morning because efforts failed yesterday to obtain commercial The land was posted with homemade .signs, though, later in the morning. Mr Somerville advises thai fish and game associations have free signs available which advise that hunting or private land will be allowec only after permission is ob- tained from the landowner.
