Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, October Written permission will unlock some gates at Pincher Ranch By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer Written permission from the general manager of Pincher Creek Ranch's Ltd. will gain entrance for hunters on acres of lease land but another acres of deeded land at Pincher Creek and Claresholm will remain closed to hunting. Pat Lowe, general manager for the corporate farm and ranch operation in Southern Alberta, told members of the Alberta and Lethbridge Fish and Game Associations and fish and wildlife division of the Alberta department of lands and forests that the president and shareholders of Pincher Creek Ranch's have decided to withhold hunting privileges on their deeded land. "When I say no hunting, I mean no hunting and that means our workers or any said Mr. Lowe. Through a lease agreement with Glacier Park Co., a sub- sidiary of Burlington Northern Rail Road Co., Pincher Creek Ranch's holds controlling interest on the parcel through 1979. The lease is west of the main ranch about 15 miles southwest of Pincher Creek. But Glacier Park Co. withheld control of hunting rights from the ranch. Mr. Lowe resorted to posting the lease land, stipulating any person wanting to hunt within the lease will need written per- mission. And only Mr. Lowe's signature will validate that per- mission. An incident Oct. 5, which was first reported by The Herald under a story headlined Vandalized Ranch Closed to Hunters brought the question of hunter access to a head. Mr. Lowe had posted the lease land eight days prior to discovering the destruc- tion of a mobile home and refrigerator and damage to a portable power plant. Without pointing a finger directly at hunters, Mr. Lowe said Sept. 17 was the start of a limited moose hunting season in his area, 10 days before the lease land was posted. And a moose was killed the day the season started. He said while the destruction of the trailer was found Oct. 5, it could have been done earlier. Pincher Creek Ranch's is now gathering its cattle herd from the lease and deeded land to take stock of numbers. This operation should be completed next week. Hunting season for elk, mule deer and white tail deer opens in the vicinity of Pincher Creek Ranch's Nov. 13. "There's no way I can put the cattle back in that lease..." while there are hunters around who disregard private property, he said. Mr. Lowe then told the small meeting he has been personal- ly threatened and one of his hired men was harassed by a group of hunters. Taking another swipe at the hunters, Mr. Lowe said he can go down any trail on the lease and find beer bottles. Pincher Creek runs through part of the lease and the area has been littered by fishermen. "They just have no regard for the land." He also pointed to evidence where animals have been killed and then dragged from the ranch land. He doesn't even know for sure if the animals killed were wild animals or ranch cattle. Speaking personally, Mr. Lowe said if he had his way, he would stop all hunting on both deeded and lease land. He wants to keep the land as a reservoir for wild game and expressed willingness to co-operate with fish and wildlife of- ficials in managing the animals. In an effort to stop vandalism on the ranch and to stop hunting problems, Mr. Lowe said he is willing to go along with any reasonable program that will help hunter-rancher-farmer relations. "Hunter-farmer-rancher relationships have gone plumb to he said. Because of the trouble with hunters, Mr. Lowe has resorted to carrying a rifle whenever he rides a horse around the ranch. '.'It's a sorry time when I have to carry a rifle. But it's come to that stage when I he said. "We have got to get together, to get to more people to solve this problem. We've got to do it some He said there is no way he can allow his men to be harassed. "How can I keep good men if they are going to be roughed "It's not the good hunters we're worried about. It's the poor hunters." N. E. Kloppenborg, vice-president of the Lethbridge Fish and Game Association, said part of the cause of the problem is the low penalty hunting offenders face. Mr. Kloppenborg said instead of a or fine, hunters who offend the laws should have to pay fines of and lose their hunting privileges for life or for five years, depending on the offence. In later discussion, Mr. Kloppenborg added hunters should face confiscation of their guns and vehicles also. Frank Somerville, chief wildlife officer in Lethbridge, said he feels a lack of a clear position and a lack of communication between hunters and Pincher Creek Ranch's has a lot to do with the hard feelings. "My policy now is that I will prosecute any and all infrac- tions of game laws on our deeded said Mr. Lowe. "I'll go the whole route no matter who it is." Ken Nichol of Cowley, vice-president of the Alberta Fish and Game Association, said a lack of policing staff also hinders control of the hunting population. There are nine fish and wildlife officers who are responsible for about square miles of land in Southern Alberta. Del Bonita truck victim misjudged stopping A 55-year-old Del Bonita man who died Sept. t'O when his truck left the road and burst into flames about seven miles south of Magrath, mis- judged his stopping distance, a six-man coroner's jury ruled Thursday. The jury took about 40 minutes to reach a decision after two hours of testimony by 10 witnesses. The cause of death, it was ruled, was in- juries as a result of "impact and fire." Helmut Rudolph was travelling north on Highway 62 about p.m. towards Magrath when his three-ton truck, loaded with grain, left the road and came to abrupt halt in a ditch and burst into flames. One witness, Tylor Alston, Parent-teacher talks set at separate schools One day per semester may be allotted for parent-teacher conferences, separate school trustees have decided. Superintendent, Ralph Himsl informed the board this week that teachers "find the meetings with parents helpful in maintaining relations with children and parents." When presenting his recommendation that one day a semester be officially set aside, Mr. Himsl pointed out that some schools have used a half day plus an evening for the conferences while others used a day plus one evening for the conferences. He suggested the schools be allowed to use two half days, an hour per day for a week or a full day each semester for the parent-teacher conferences.

Trustee Steve Vaselenak suggested that parents should be personally scheduled to at- tend the meetings with their children so the parent, student and teacher can discuss the student's education together. If parents think the meeting is just a mass gathering of all parents and teachers, many of them won't make the effort to attend, he claimed. And "it is the people who don't show up that need them (parent-teacher conferences) the he continued. Of the parent-teacher conferences, Trustee Paul Matisz suggested "we can't do enough of this." Mr. Himsl told the board the only criticism parents had of past conferences is that they were too rushed. FOX DENTURE CLINIC Est 1922 PHONE 327-CMS E. S. P. FOX, C.D.M.

CLIFF BLACK, BUCK DENTAL LAB Lower Level PHONE 327-2S22 A review: of Magrath, was the driver of a school bus that had pulled over to the shoulder of the road shortly after 4 p.m. because of trouble with the rear dual wheels. Mr. Alson testified he saw the truck coming at a high rate of speed and "the driver appeared to be struggling with the steering wheel." A pickup truck, driven by Jack Bengry, of Magrath, was parked on the shoulder on the opposite side of the road, almost directly across from the school bus. Mr. Bengry's brother, Richard, was with him at the scene when the ac- cident happened. Both testified they were there to offer assistance to Mr. Alston to repair the bus. The three, among others who gave testimony were all questioned about what had happened immediately before the accident when another pickup truck, driven by Glen Sillito, who had stopped in the middle of the road between the bus and the Bengry vehicle to offer assistance. "He (Mr. Sillito) stopped only momentarily and asked if I needed help. I said no and waved bun Mr. Alston said.q Jack Bengry also testified Mr. Sillito had stopped momentarily. "I told him there was a truck coming, and he moved on. Mr. Alston said as Mr. Sillito was pulling away be heard a truck approaching and he turned to look. "I could see the driver was struggling with the steering wheel. It went into the ditch. The box came forward, the cab tipped forward and burst into flames. "I tried to pull the door open but it was jammed. Larry Letkeman had a fire ex- tinguisher, but it was too Mr. Alston testified. City Scene Hearing adjourned to Oct. 31 A preliminary hearing for three men jointly charged with break, enter and theft and assault causing bodily harm was ad- journed in provincial court Thursday to Oct. 31 when a date for continuing the preliminary will be set.

Sawdust truck overturns Traffic was held up for about three hours at the traffic cir- cle at 5th Avenue N. and Stafford Drive Thursday when a truck loaded with about 22 tons of loose sawdust overturned. Lethbridge city police said a front-end loader and nine gravel trucks were needed to pick up the spilled sawdust. Five tow trucks were needed to set the overturned semi-trailer on its wheels. Police said about p.m. Lawrence Lynch, 28, of Calgary was proceeding east on 5th Avenue N. approaching the traffic circle.

The Rivals 'unrivalled' in Lethbridge theatre By LYNNE VAN LUVEN Herald Family Editor Unrivalled entertainment. That's the best way to describe Edmonton Citadel Theatre's presentation at the Yates Theatre Thursday evening. Citadel's enactment of Sheridan's comedy of manners, The Rivals, was a near-flawless production play- ing to a disappointingly small house. Sponsored by the Lethbridge Allied Arts Council in conjunc- tion with the department of culture, youth and recreation, the Edmonton theatre's visit offers Southern Albertans a chance to see a top-notch group of actors and actresses at work. Directed by John Neville, the Rivals is the best produc- tion to be staged in Lethbridge this year. With few excep- tions, the performances were polished and captivating. Strongly-etched characters were enhanced by the ex- cellent sets; changes of scenes were achieved with minimum fuss and bother. And, of course, Sheridan's wit means a play replete with fine satire and hilarious lines. Highly memorable were Owen Foran as the blustering Sir Anthony Absolute and Tom Miller as the dithering, eminently flappable Faulkland. Mr. Foran was Farmer opposes ammonia plant Alberta resources should not be put into a massive pro- ject such as the proposed Alberta Ammonia Ltd. plant at Raymond because of the danger of complete depletion, the Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs was told Thursday. Alberta's resources will probably be depleted by the end of the century, Frank Russell, an area farmer and a geology graduate, told the council. He warned his audience he is biased against the plant. The meeting, at Sven Ericksen's Family Restaurant, was also told that coal, rather than natural gas, should be used in large in- dustrial projects. Natural gas is a good home heating fuel because it is non-polluting, said Mr. Russell. Equipment to control pollution is more economical on large in-> stallations. Electricity and water would also be used in large amounts at the plant, he said. The project would produce tons of anhydrous am- monia a year, of which tons would be earmarked for the United States and for Canada. "A huge amount of Alberta energy will be used to produce fertilizer for agricultural producers competing with Alberta he said. Anybydrous ammonia is a basic building block of in- dustrial chemistry for ex- plosives and plastics including nylon and is a very efficient fertilizer. It is 82 per cent nitrogen, compared with 33 per cent nitrogen for am- monium nitrate solid fer- tilizer. PENNER'S PLUMBING 1209 2nd Ave S Phone 327-4121 Mr. Russell said he's been using anhydrous ammonia on his farm for about 16 years. The application equipment is expensive, but the low fer- tilizer cost more than offsets the equipment cost. He also said the National Energy Board is assessing Canada's energy reserves to secure future needs. If the project goes through and am- monia export begins, it could continue even if later ruled detrimental, he said. Audience reaction and com- ment seemed to favor Russell's view. Raymond Mayor R. D. Graham was one who holds the opposite point of view. The plant would be a good thing for the town, he said. Disagreeing with Mr. Russell's assessment of the resource situation, Mayor Graham said the water used is well within Southern Alberta's supply. He later told The Herald the Alberta Energy Resources Conservation Board would have to be satisfied remaining gas reserves would be suf- ficient before granting a per- mit.

Predominant male characters or no, what would The Rivals be without the marvelous Mrs. Malaprop? Soliloquizing rampantly, hamstringing words left and right while oblivious (Mrs. Malaprop would probably say 'insidious') to the plots and sub-plots unfurling around her, Margaret Barton was a gem of a Malaprop. Colin Miller's portrayal of the ruddy, bluff country gentleman Acres was fine comedy and David Schurmann was a very natural and believable Captain Absolute. Richard Cuffling gave a nice turn to the foppish manser- vant, Fag. As Lydia and Julia, Brigid Johnston and Susan Wright created two heroines with different characters who are equally vexed by love. Bob Birch (the servant David) and Richard Par- Ungton (Sir Lucius O'Trigger) are not quite up to Citadel standards. Mr. Partington is essentially irksome; he portrays the Irishman Sir Lucius with an uncomfortable meld of leprechaun and swaggering buccaneer. He is more enjoyable in his second role as the drunk coachman. As the carrier of messages between all the lovers and rivals in the play, the servant girl Lucy is a vital secondary character. Margaret Bard's interpretation of Lucy was fresh and charming a bit of a rogue, but very lovable. The Citadel players perform in Medicine Hat tonight and return to the Yates for a final engagement Saturday evening at p.m. The Rivals is too good to miss and offers more laughs than you've had in a long-time.

What it boiled down to was, "Out of the thousands of drugs you have to carry in stock, how many of them are really called for with any great Surprisingly enough, somewhere between 800 and of the almost drugs we have to carry in stock do fall into this category. And every year begin- ning to stock at least 20 to 30 or more new drugs which have passed exhaustive testing before they have been certified for general dispensing. You see, there is a high rate of obsolescence in drugs nowadays because so many of the much- more-effective new drugs are replacing many of the standbys of past years. snwspHwwaim OpvndcRjr Mjm. to MM {MIL 12 noon to fcOO p.m. ;
