Ph. 328-8161 1705 M.M. Drive Ph. 328-7751 // You Ask M By Jim Wilson e.. "jVO, I didn't donate to the United Appeal, because at least four of the groups is assists make it a mockery. Names? Boy Scouts, Girl Guides, Navy League and the Family Y. All full of perfectly able-bodied people who can find ways other than asking for handouts to raise money. What's wrong with expecting kids to raise money through a variety of community activities? In addition to bottle and paper drives there are many such activities - the only limit is imagination. For example, find half a dozen businesses willing to pay half a cent a can or non - returnable bottle for pick-up and clean-up work. And I emphasize, I don't think they should use the door-to-door approach. I think the concept of a united appeal is excellent (although a two or three-mill tax levy might be more intelligent). But unfortunately the people making United Appeal recipient choices aren't using their common sense. (And a further argument can be offered in that many of the groups in the appeal now continue to go door-to-door, because the once-annually appeal theory doesn't provide sufficient funds). I feel insulted when Boy Scouts ask for handouts - there are few better-organized youth groups, and with that kind of organization there are many far more challenging and valuable ways to raise money. And the same goes for Girl Guides, and the Navy League. I feel doubly insulted by the Navy League entry-why should I be asked to support a bunch of kids who are being trained to be little tin soldiers in the fond hope of perpetuating warfare, kids who are then expected to grow up to be big tin soldiers. My pacifistic bones are bothered. The Family Y is perhaps slightly different, but even it Is capable of doing other things to raise money, including offering more general interest programs for non-Y members. Door-to-dooring it with the really needful charities by these groups is a reflection on their ... is it greed or laziness or lack of imagination? It may be true that not much money goes to the four groups mentioned, but even $100 would be better spent on cancer research. There is one way the youth groups could indirectly receive United Appeal funds in an ethical way: instead of including them as recipient groups, include a general Community Projects Fund in the appeal campaign, to be administered by the United Appeal, or the Chamber of Commerce or a service club. Scouts, Guides - even the miniature soldiers-could apply for money from the fund to assist them in community projects such as cleaning up Henderson Lake, or to plant trees, or to build swings in some parks. But please, not to buy badges and send them to camps- there are working ways to get that money-and their need for door-to-door campaign money pales when compared with other United Appeal charities. * * ? The standard reply of a donor offering these criticisms- that if you don't want to give to one of the United Appeal groups your donation won't be shared with it - is a bit much: that means the qutoas are so much wasted effort, and I strongly doubt a real mechanism for this sort of thing exists. Right now I prefer sending a cheque to the charities of my choice - and anyone who wants to donate money to individual charities but doesn't know how to contact them, send a cheque to them in care of myself - I'll be glad to see your donation is forwarded.

Buijert Sure, Mont May Controlled Storage Benefits Seen For Vegetable Industry  CLIP AND MAIL TODAY  By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Farm Writer The recent decision by the Alberta government to build a controlled - atmosphere storage unit at the Brooks Horticultural Station could bring far-reaching benefits to the province's expanding vegetable industry. This was a recent statement by Dave Stelfox, supervisor of the Alberta department of agriculture's crop clinic in Edmonton. He said the new facilities will make it possible to speed up and expand vegetable storage research and determine if con-trolled-atmosphere storage has a role in prolonging the storage life of many Alberta-produced vegetables. The crop clinic lab, called on to diagnose many vegetable storage problems, initiated its own storage studies on a small scale seven years ago. Although they knew there were chemicals which would inhibit many disease-causing organisms in stored vegetables, Mr. Stelfox and his co-workers felt it would be a mistake to rely entirely on chemical control. Controlled - atmosphere storage used successf u 11 y to prolong the storage life of several kinds of fruits apeared to have good possibilities for use in long-term storage of carrots, turnips, parsnips and similar root crops. To check this, clinic staff developed small controlled-atmo-sphere units not much bigger than a water pail. With these they were able to study the affects of increasing carbon dioxide tension and decreased oxygen on certain disease causing fungi at various temperatures. First studies revealed some QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg. �� PHONE 328-76841 Man Hurt When Car Leaves Road Lethbridge city police and RCMP report one motor vehicle accident Friday night, and one break and enter. The vehicle accident invloved Jack Helle, 27, of Shaughnes-sy, who sustained head and chest injuries when the car he was driving left the road one mile south of Diamond City. Damage was estimated at $1,-500. Mr. Helle is reported to be in serious condition at the Lethbridge Municipal H o s p ital. There were no other passengers in the car. The break and enter occured at 12:30 this morning at Duff Sound Equipment, 1108, 6 Ave S. City police say it was a smash and grab theft. The culprit broke the front window of the store and made off with a microphone mixer valued at $130. organisms were suppressed at low carbon dioxide concentrations, stimulated to growth at slightly higher levels, and completely inhibited at higher doses. Moreover, some fungi, not normally considered a problem in low temperature storage grew and multiplied at higher carbon dioxide levels. In other words, said Mr. Stelfox, the untimely application of carbon dioxide to storage atmospheres could result in disease exchanges. When seeking means of controlling disease causing organisms it's equally important to make certain there is no quality loss in the produce. For its quality control study, the clinic first adapted a heavy duty polyethylene bag, and finally a walk-in type storage and the first of its kind in the province. MORE TESTS Present investigations at the crop clinic lab are concentrated on determining what combinations of low temperature, modified oxygen and carbon dioxide atmosphere, and relative humidity best enables stored produce to retain high quality for six or seven months while undesirable fungi are suppressed. The 24-ton storage unit was built at a cost of about $30,000 and will be ready for use in about one week. Art Olson, director of the Brooks Horticultural Station, said the unit and others like it can strengthen Alberta's vegetable industry by making it possible to supply consumers with highly perishable vegetables for weeks longer than before possible. NDP Nominations Set For Nov. By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer The Lethbridge New Democratic Party Association has announced it will hold a nomination meeting Nov. 18 to elect candidates for the next provincial election. It is expected the NDP will be the first party to name candidates for the two new city| ridings, East and West Leth-1 bridge. Widely-rumored dates for the election are the spring o r fall of 1971, although the Social Credit government's five - year mandate does not run out until 1972. Charles Buijert, Lethbridge Herald printer and the party's unsuccessful candidate in the 1967 election, said he will definitely contest a nomination. It is believed Alastair Mont, director of the Lethbridge Family Service and currently a member of the public school board, is considering running also. The New Democrats, like the Liberals, have maintained a single executive for both ridings. The two Social Credit associations, meanwhile, will hold a joint annual meeting Oct. 27 to elect permanent executives. The present executives were elected on an interim basis following the legislature's announcement last spring of the two ridings. The meeting will start at 8 p.m. at Allan Watson School. Stan Coxson, president of the West Lethbridge Socred association, said the party expects Beets Roll After Stop The sugar beet harvest Is rolling again. Following consultation Friday of Canadian Sugar Factories Ltd. and Southern Alberta Sugar Beet Growers Association officials, a decision was made to reopen all piling stations in the district. This does not include car loading stations which remain closed to facilitate the reloading of frost damaged beets at country points. CSF officials say essentially this means growers close to loading stations will have to deliver to the nearest piling station, or as directed by field-men. The sugar beet harvest now entering its 19th day has met with delays caused by adverse weather conditions. The big concern is for beets severly damaged by frost Oct. 7. Because of the freezing, beets are not in good storage condition, and cannot remain piled for long. About 40 per cent of the 38,000 acres of sugar beets in southern Alberta have been harvested. Pension Plan Sessions Set Itinerant and local office sessions will be held at the following locations, where a field officer will deal with matters pertaining to the Canada Pension plan, old age security, and guaranteed income supplement. Cranbrook - room 101, post office, Oct. 20, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.; Fernie - town hall, Oct. 19, 1 p.m.-3 p.m.; Natal-Mkhel, town hall,, Oct. 19, 9:30 a.m.-ll a.m.; Kimberley - Union Hall, Oct. 21, 9 a.m.-12 noon. Anyone needing assistance in matters pertaining to these federal plans is invited to visit the field officer at any of the above office sessions. COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. 909 3rd Ave. S. Ph. 327-5454 to nominate before Christmas. The Conservatives are facing a number of meetings this fall, including one in Lethbridge Nov. 6 - 8 on southern Alberta regional economic expansion. A conference for candidates and potential candidates will be held in Banff early in December. Dr. Herb Axford, president of the East Lethbridge Conservative association, said no date has been set for a local nomination meeting. However, since the party has close to 50 candidates named already throughout the province, it is expected local nominations will be held at least by early 1971. The Liberal party constitutes a nomination demand looking for candidate supply. Where the other three parties have actively courted potential candidates, the Liberals are waiting for interested persons to be drawn to them. Dr. W. J. Cranley, president of the Lethbridge provincial Liberal association, said there has been "no urging about a nomination meeting." A party organizer from Calgary who was due to visit the city a couple of weeks ago has not made an appearance and Dr. Cranley suggested he is ; "anxiously awaiting his ar- I rival." Revisions Made In Pheasant Limits In the general announcement that was made by the Alberta fish and wildlife branch, the daily limit on pheasants was set at three birds per day and nine in possession from Oct. 9 to Oct. 31. For the latter part of the season from Nov. 2 to Dec. 5, the daily limit was set at five and the possession limit at 15. These limits were set for male birds, or roosters, and apply in all parts of the province except Wildlife Management Unit G140 centered in the Rainier district, southwest of Brooks. In Wildlife Management Unit G140, hunters may take two hen pheasants in addition to the three male birds per day limit from Oct. 9 to Oct. 31, and have in their possession six female birds in addition to the nine male birds. From Nov. 2 to Dec. 5, shooters may take three hens in addition to the five per day male bird limit and have in possession nine hens in addition to the 15 male birds. The season on hen pheasants fin WMU G140 Is open Monday ' through Saturday this year, and not restricted to Saturdays only as in previous years. Hunters are to check out through special check stations when hunting in WMU G140 according to the regulations. The clarification on the limits was made today by Frank Sommervilte, supervising fish and wildlife officer for southern Alberta. Bulbs Set At Henderson The annual meeting of the Lethbridge and District Horticultural Society will be held Oct. 26 at 8 p.m. in the Civic Sports Centre. Guest speaker will be Dr. P. D. Hargreaves.
