Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Monday. October 29, 1973 Cattle-price rise seen The price of live beef will rise slowly coming to a peak in February, says an international livestock consultant. Cole Townsley, of Huntsville, Texas, says a shortage of middle- weight cows in feedlots, now, will result in a shortage of fat cattle ready for slaughter in coming months. This shortage of fat cattle will result in higher beef prices he told a meeting of local farmers Saturday. He later told The Herald the shortage of fat cattle will reach its peak in February and hold for 60 to 90 days. Beef prices will not begin to drop until next summer if cattlemen begin to purchase cattle now. This is how long it will take to get them ready for slaughter. Mr. Townsley has been in several parts of Canada and the U.S. over the past weeek and says there are few middle-weight cattle in feedlots. He works for A. 0. Smith Harvestore Products Inc., which makes automated feeding systems for livestock. He travels throughout Canada and the U.S. talking to livestock owners and assesses their needs as well as livestock markets. Locally, there is also a shortage of middle- weight feeder cattle. Cattlemen are reluc- tant to buy animals to raise in feedlots for slaughter because of the high price and low return. The low prices for slaughter animals is a result of a surplus of beef on the market the last few months. This was caused when U.S. President Richard Nix- on removed the price freeze on beef and the market was flooded. Edmonton, Time Air at odds over planes The City of Edmonton has raised an objection to an application made by Time Air, of Lethbridge, to operate a bigger plane on its Lethbridge Calgary Ed- monton route. The objection, filed with the air transport committee of the Canadian Transportation Commission, states that a plane weighing over Ib. cannot land at the Edmonton Industrial Airport if the flight connects with other routes. Although the city would have no objections to a landing at the international airport 15 miles south of Ed- monton, Stubb Ross, president of Time Air, said Saturday it would be "economic suicide" to land there. Time Air has applied to the United Way containers net The United Way container canvass, which concluded Saturday netted residential campaign chairman Karen Lawson said today. But total receipts and the number of boxes now listed at 2.020 could increase when box- es not collected by member agencies are delivered to a number of local stores. L-Mart and Safeway stores and the Family Y have agreed to accept any boxes which were missed during the can- vass which kicked off last Monday. The residential total now stands at including funds collected by a canvass by letter of persons who last year donated or more. About 275 of 600 letters mailed out have yet to bring donations. Mrs. Law- son predicts about more will come from this canvass bringing receipts from the residential canvass to close to This would top last year's residential total of more than About containers were distributed in the city the week before United Way kick off Sept. 24. The con- tainers were designed to con- tain the donations of nickels and dimes and were designed primarily for housewives and students. United Way hopes to collect about from its annual drive, about more than was donated last year. air committee to operate a Hawker Siddeley 748 40- passenger turbo-prop on the Lethbridge Calgary Ed- monton route. Time Air now runs an 18 passenger Otter which has landing rights at the industrial airport. According to an airport study adopted by Edmonton city council Aug. 13, 1973, only commuter flights are allowed to land at the industrial air- port, which is in the center of the city. Mr. Ross is in Edmonton to- day to discuss the objection with city officials, but in a Herald interview, Doug Burrows, commissioner of utilities and engineering and member of Edmonton city council's airport study group, said the objection would stand unless Time Air is willing to run a non-stop Lethbridge- Edmonton, or Calgary Ed- monton flight. To meet Edmonton's air- port regulations, the flight would have to be a commuter service, with no connections to other centres or flights. Mr. Burrows said the in- dustrial airport has been designated a "special pur- pose" airport with only airbus service and private commer- cial flights allowed landing rights. All inter-connecting flights using planes over the weight limit are being rerouted to the international airport. Pacific Western Airlines, the major user of the in- dustrial airport, has agreed to transfer its flights, except for the Calgary-Edmonton air- bus, to the international air- port. "We want Time Air to operate on the same basis as Mr. Burrows said. Special regulations affecting the industrial air- port were established to reduce noise in the sur- rounding residential neighborhoods.

While recognizing the need for a technical education, Catholics want their own educational system which will teach Catholic values. In- dians, said Harold Cardinal, should follow their example so that Indian children can be taught the Indian way of life. Speaking to a conference of young people from the Treaty 7 area, Mr. Cardinal said that residential schools on the reserve, which were run by religious organizations, attempted to destroy Indian language and culture. One delegate said that in a residential school on the Blackfoot Reserve, east of Calgary, children were given the strap every time they spoke Blackfoot. Mr. Cardinal compared education to a car, saying that for many years whites were driving the car and Indians were in the back seat, unsure of their destination. Continuing the analogy, Mr. Cardinal said whites now are offering to let Indians drive the car. But before they accept the offer, he warned, they should first find out what road they want to take. "In many areas, there are ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwarh Bid's 2.22 Sth St S Phone 328-4095 different roads for the white and the Indian." We cannot allow ourselves, he said, to be shortsighted because the deci- sion made now will affect future generations of Indian people. He said the treaties were a statement of friendship between whites and Indians, but they were also a state- ment by tribal elders that they wanted their children to grow up as Indians. For a long time, he said, the church, through residential schools, and the government were "in Collusion to 'civilize' Indians." Other speakers at the con- ference, organized by young people from the Peigan Reserve, echoed the same theme, and all urged the young to examine Indian culture and language. Mervin Wolfleg, on staff at the Alberta Indian Education Centre, in Edmonton, said there is no provision in Indian education for preservation of their culture. "The goal of the Indian af- fairs department is to make us white that is why we are forced into crisis after crisis with the white man." He said there are efforts be- ing made in Canada tc develop a curriculum and new teaching methods which will allow Indians to preserve their culture. John Snow, chief of the Stony Reserve, northwest of Calgary, told the conference he welcomes the current revival in Indian culture and religion. There are many good things in our culture which must be preserved, he said. If we lose our language and culture, "we will be like forgotten people, with no destiny, no future." Indian culture has been un- der attack ever since whites came to North America, Chief Snow said. Attitudes toward children with various learning han- dicaps, must change if "ex- ceptional children" are to get a positive education, the director of special education services for the public school board said Saturday. Fred Cartwright said there is a general derogatory at- titude to children with mental or auditory handicaps. This attitude hampers lear- ning. "Adults should suppress their biases and look at the whole child. They shouldn't say this is a blind child, or deaf child, or mentally retard- ed child. They should say, this is a child a child that can Mr. Cartwright said. He was speaking at a seminar for parents and teachers who deal with the ex- ceptional child. Dr. E. M. Wright, of Lethbridge, another speaker, agreed with Mr. Cartwright. The first step in the educa- tion of the exceptional child is to regard the child as a whole person, Dr. Wright said. The child must be involved in the learning experience with people working with him and not for him. There should also be a definite learning en- vironment, she said. Dr. Wright said an un- healthy aspect that often plagues parents of exceptional children is a feeling of guilt when the child is born. During pregnancy an ideal image of the child is in the parents minds. When a defec- tive infant is produced, the mother usually thinks it is her fault. There is guilt, and grief because they feel a perfect baby has been lost, she said. Parents must overcome these feelings and give the child the treatment and learn- ing it needs. "It is dangerous if these feelings are left she said. Television showmen were here Bing Crosby and well- known entertainer Phil Harris left Southern Alberta Saturday after filming a hunting seg- ment of the American Broadcasting Com- pany's American Sport- sman. There has been no an- nouncement from ABC when the show, filmed in the area, will be broadcast.

The residence of Joseph Beet harvest completed The 1973 sugar beet harvest in Southern Alberaa is virtual- ly complete. Gerald Snow, agricultural superintendent for Canadian Sugar Factories Ltd., said less than tons of beets are still in the ground. He said about 580.000 tons of sugar beets are expected from about 38.300 acres. The 1.000 contract growers should average just more than 15 tons of beets per acre, slightly above the normal harvest. Mr. Snow said his harvest was one of the smoothest on record, with all beets dug within one month. There were no delays or interruptions in the harvest this year. Both processing plants in Taber and Picture Butte are working at capacity. Work has now started to take the sugar beets piled at county delivery points to both factories. Farmers will receive the initial payment for their beets Nov. 6. 'The final payment isn't made until the sugar processed from this year's crop has been sold.
