EDMONTON (CP) A re- port prepared for Uie federal government says British troop exercises next spring in south- ern Alberta could damage the delicate ecology of the region. Prepared by three Edmonton scien t i s t s and commission- j ed jointly by the federal depart- ments of the environment and defence, the report is expected to be tabled soon in the Com- mons by Environment Minis- ter Jack Davis. The 22 page document is the product of W. E. Stevens, a research director for the Ca- nadian Wildlife Service, J. G. Stelfox, a range management expert for the service, and A. A. Kjearsgaard, a scientist with the Canadian Soil Survey. "We spent about a week down in the Suffield area two months ago, in Mr. Stevens said in an interview Monday. "And while we didn't make any recommendations in the report, as such, as did have some sug- gestions." Their report said grass fires started by live ammunit i o n will be a major safety and en- vironmental hazard on the 750 square miles of grasslands set aside for the British training.

"The Suffield area represents about the only locality of rea- sonable undisturbed mixed grass on the prairie remaining under federal government pur- the report said. given the usual dry summers and the prev a 1 e n t prairie winds, it is highly like- ly that fires will become more prevalent."

Agriculture reassuring n Lambert said Monday that Prairie feed grain can be shipped east almost as cheaply by rail as by water. Mr. Lambert had asked in the Commons whether sufficient supplies of food grain will be available to Quebec to prevent a shortage that would send up prices this winter. Mr. Olson replied that plies are available at the port of Thunder Bay, Ont., and can be shipped before tlie seaway closes if orders arc placed. Corn also was available from On- tario. Furthermore, he said, rail shipments were an alternative to seaway shipments and were "very close to the water rale." KARL WILDE Looking for an economical home made for family living?
