Chris Mills, secretary of the Canadian Cattlemen's Association, said the advances will merely postpone market losses until next year. "We are of the opinion that there is an over supply of cattle around the world and the market won't recover for at least two Mr. Mills said. "But this view isn't shared by the provincial government because they feel that Alberta -should increase ite-cattle-pop- ulation rather than decreaser it." Alberta Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer an- nounced the program Wednesday, saying it is intended to improve cash flow to small farmers hit by low prices. The program provides for one year, interest free cash advances of per calf to a maximum of per fanner. A similar program was announced for Saskatchewan farmers. Mr. Mills suggested that when the farmer must repay his cash advance he will have made an additional invest- ment in his cattle through feed costs but will get no better return than if he sold them this year. "We don't feel that loans, even if they're interest free, are any solution to marketing said Dobson Lea, president of Unifarm. "Dr. Homer assures us that things are going to look better, Tumbling weeds vex motorists As this wind-whipped tumbleweed continues its umpredictable trip through city streets, this 6th St. S. motorist patiently waits for the traveller from the prairie to tumble along. New homes moved to Brocket sites the government before." Mr. Lea agrees that some form of temporary relief is necessary for cow calf operators who depend on sell- ing their calf crop for working capital. "I think that every cattleman will take advantage of this program whether he needs it or said Mr. Mills.

Band manager Henry Potts said Wednesday the 18 Kainai built sectional homes will be hooked up to natural gas and sewer systems, both currently being installed at Brocket. The new townsite is just east of the new million ice arena and band ad- ministration building, the largest single construction job in the history of the Peigan Reserve. The 500 seat arena, which will include a regulation size hockey rink and dressing rooms, will be ready this winter, the band manager said. The Kainai homes being moved to the new townsite were purchased by the band with an Indian affairs grant and mortgages from Central Housing and Mortgage Corp. The houses, along with 100 homes at Brocket, will be ser- viced soon with natural gas, being installed by Canadian Western Natural Gas. The band has negotiated a loan with the provincial government to bring gas on the reserve. The new homes will be hook- ed up to the band's recently completed sewage collection and lagoon system. Work on basements and hookups for the 18 homes is being done by Getkate Construction of Lethbridge. Regular sittings ordered at Coaldale By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer Schools are looking at areas for learning other than the classroom and in doing so they aren't limiting the learning environment to their im- mediate locale. To assist in their study and travel, a non-profit Canadian organization provides them with planned "travel and learn" programs to Canadian and world destinations. The Society for the Study of the Heritage of Canada has designed each of its programs "to stimulate and increase interest in various school sub- jects, particularly those related to Canada's historical and cultural ties, says the society's Vancouver-based area co-ordinator. Norman Clarke, when in Lethbridge to organize some Southern Alberta school programs to Paris and England, said people tend to learn more when they can visit a place they have just studied hi the classroom. Also, he says, the whole process of studying and preparing for the trip, par- ticipating in the trip and hav- ing to face the problems of adapting to a foreign country is a very valuable learning ex- perience in itself. It is a real "culture shock and eye opener" for students who haven't travelled to dis- tant points to view the life style and attitudes of other people. Mr. Clarke has found schools in small communities to be the most active in the Heritage Society programs and often the most involved as a group (students and WORK HARD They work hard during the summer months to save money. The Heritage Society prefers that students raise all or part of the cost of the trip because students than realize it is an academic experience and not a handout, he says. It is important that students know that they are getting in- volved in hours of preparation work and exceptionally long days of learning while on the trip so they approach the program as an academic ex- perience and not a holiday junket. A few Southern Alberta schools have participated in the program during the past three years and at least five schools are in the planning stages of participation this year. The Heritage Society would like to see more schools in this area involved in the program because "virtually every school has students who would like to participate" in such a learning experience, Mr. Clarke says. SETTLE DOWN Even with the tendency of people to travel more today, many students will "settle into a life pattern" that will see them do very little travell- ing as adults, he maintains. "A lot of girls make trips" because they may have little The Coaldale town council is very pleased Alberta's at- torney general has taken steps to assure there will be regular provincial court sit- tings in the town, says the town's administrator. For some reason there haven't been provincial court sittings in Coaldale for the last few months, says Earl McDroy. However, Tuesday evening a letter from Attorney General MervLeitch was read to the regular town council meeting stating Mr. Leitch had asked that regular sittings of provincial court be con- tinued in the town. Mr. Leitch said in the letter he had not instructed the sit- tings be discontinued. Members of the town council met Mr. Leitch when he visited Lethbridge in August and complained about the situation.

The program is directly dependent on teacher interest for success. Mr. Clarke says it is a dif- ficult undertaking for teachers to help students prepare for the trip, be their agent in a foreign country and be able to adjust to situations that don't occur as planned. Not everyone can cope with world travel, he adds. Teachers intending to par- ticipate in the program can also expect to face in-school problems. "It is an administrative headache and it is much easier to push it aside" than make the extra effort needed to provide the students with a memorable learning ex- perience, Mr. Clarke suggests. SUPERVISION The teacher will have to do the organization of the program outside regular classroom hours and spend part of his or her holidays supervising young people rather than simply enjoying the offerings of another country or otter parts of this country, he explains. The participating teacher must also justify the time students will miss from classes taught by other teachers. However, the trip usually occurs during a holiday period such as the Easter break and students often only miss about three or four days of. schooling. There are also one-week trips that allow students to participate without missing any school time. This year, a few of the trips planned for Southern Alberta students are for the two-week period during the Canada Winter Games when many schools will be closed. THREE YEARS During the past three years, students and teachers have participated in the Heritage Society European study program and many other students have par- ticipated in the exchange program it operates within and outside the country. Many of the students who participated in the two-week European study program spent one of the two weeks studying sites in Canada before taking the flight overseas. STUDIO ON FIPTM Provincial Judge A.
