CLARESHOLM (HNS) Willow Creek School Division trustees have agreed to look into prices charged for food in the local high school cafeteria. A delegation of students from Willow Creek Composite protested the prices at a re- cent meeting of the trustees. Student spokesman Mike Swanson told trustees price had been increased to the point where students could no longer afford to eat there. He said prices had been adjusted to be the same as in commer- cial cafeterias and drive-in restaurants. Commerical establishments price food to make a profit, but the school cafeteria should not be operated for profit More district pages 16, 17 making, the students argued. Trustees told the students cafeterias in the school dis- trict operated with a deficit last year and that food prices had increased "drastically" since then The students also complain- ed that paper plates used to serve the food gave gravy a funny taste.

Till 9 p.m. Interest in taxidermy was aroused last fall when Tony saw a deerhead a relative had mounted. Since then a pheasant, a duck, an eleven- pound pike, a magpie which was so realistic Tony's dog walked off with it, and a twelve-inch rainbow trout have been mounted by Tony. An uncle in the B.C. moun- tains has promised Tony a grizzly bear and a mountain lion Tnny has a great love of wild life and says this is essen- tial in this type of work.

Eye glasses are needed Taber proposal for CKUA transmitter site nixed TABER (HNS) Educa- tion Minister Lou Hyndtnan has rejected a proposal that the FM transmitter, to be es- tablished in the South for CKUA radio, be set up in Taber instead of Lethbridge. In a letter to Taber Times publisher George Meyer, who made the proposal, Mr. Hyndman said that a signal from Taber would be poorly received at Medicine Hat and that "there may be a tran- smitter at Medicine Hat in the next phase of the development Herald- District Coaldale firefighters answered three calls COALDALE (HNS) The Coaldale Volunteer Fire Department answered three fire calls before the beginning of Fire Prevention Week. A four ton grain truck was demolished by fire on the Frank Slezina farm one-half mile south of Readymade school. The truck was travell- ing across a grain field when it caught fire. Some swathed grain was also burned before the fire department arrived. An unused barn at the northern edge of town receiv- ed slight damage as the result of children playing with matches. Quick response of the department kept damage to a minimum. Burning garbage caused a small utility shed to ignite at the home of Brian Finnigan. The siding on the shed, which was attached to the house, was damaged. of the network" which will eventually serve all of Southern Alberta. He added that "the present plan is to locate the tran- smitter a little north and west of Lethbridge so that the signal will reach the largest number of people in Southern Alberta. Within this area of generally good reception would be Lethbridge, Fort Macleod, Magrath, Raymond, Coaldale, Taber, Picture Butte, Barons, Carmangay and possibly Claresholm." The network carries programming from the Alberta Educational Com- munications Corporation. Mr. Meyer had proposed, supported by the Taber Chamber of Commerce, that an AM transmitter be located at Taber because the town is more central to the entire south of the province. Mr. Hyndman defended the choice of FM transmission as being a quality, interference free signal with consistent coverage day and night. He also indicated that a high power FM signal capable of stereo transmission at a later date is being planned. He said that every indication in the broadcast industry points to much greater use of FM and stereo transmission. Dissatisfied with the FM transmission proposal, Mr Meyer has again challenged the government on the point of discrimination against the southern portion of the province. Said Mr. Meyer in a letter to Mr. Hyndman, "If an AM transmitter for the people of Edmonton and area for over 50 years is fair for them, then no stone should be left unturn- ed to be fair to the people of the South Offering us an FM station is only an inexpensive and convenient bit of appeasement on your part."
