Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 31, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, Deleter 31, 197S___________ Ric Tfie graiirtdaddy of all agricultural shows the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, will make headlines for the next few weeks and likely southern Alber- tans will tie a part of those headlines. Tt has been announced that Andy Brown owner of Brown's Meat Market and Frank Slezina, owner of Southolm Ranch of Coaldale, will have their Aberdeen-Angus show strings1 entered. Frank as you will remember, last year at the fair sold' the iirst Angus cattle back into Scotland. Wayne Lucas of Vulcan will enter his show Percheron work horses for competition as well as market steers. Frank will also show market steers. Southern Alberta's showcase for livestock shows the second annual Rocky Mountain Livestock Show and Sale will be held Dec. 4 to 9 in the expanded Lethbrulgo and District Exhibition Pavilion. Exhibition Manager Andy Andrews reported that about 200 entries have been received from cattle breeders from Charolais, Aberdeen-Angus, Hereford and shorthorn breeds. He said there should be about that many more entries before the event is set. Entrants are expected from Alberta, British Col- umbia, Saskatchewan and the northwest United States. Mr. Andrews said the swine entries are also good and entries in the diary competition are reasonably good with more expected. A new twist for the show and sale this year is the combination of the Kocky Mountain event with the show and sale sponsored by the Southern Alberta Cattle Breeder's Association, usually held earlier in the year. A local person engaged in a seldom-thought-of- busmess will soon be on his way to participate in an international convention. John Devlin, superintendent of the hide department for Canada Packers Ltd at its Lethbridge plant, will be on a panel for the Na- tional Hide Association Nov. 15 in Chicago. Mr. Devlin was rated at the top of the list by the faculty of the last hide training class at Oklahoma State University. He is one of the leading authorities on rawstock hides used in the making of superior leathers. Indicative of the growth of the agriculture indus- try in Canada is the recent list of long-term mort- gage loans from the Farm Credit Corporation. During the six-month period from the first of April to the end of September, FCC approved 3 524 loans for an amount of million. Government of- ficials indicate that the 32 per cent increase in tho amount borrowed from the past year was a result ol' unproved prices and marketing opportunities. Saskatchewan showed the most activity wiih 1 isr, loans okayed for million, up almost 50 PIT cent from 1971. Alberta placed third with 570 loans for mil- lion behind Ontario which had 7C2 loans 'for H million. Quebec followed with 533 loans valued nt ?1G million, lhat unabashed companion and c a n i n o friend of this reporter for more than 15 years, a "happening" to mind when Don ami Norm Davis showed up the other day dressed in hunting regalia. Tt was back about, 10 ycarw when Julius Molty.uhn nnd family lived just down the .street from Jock. Julius is rnic of the most avid hunters on the face of tho earth and as usual, had hanged sonic pheasants which Kilccn had cooked for a family meal. 'Iliis particular day, she put the pheasant under a clear dish in Hie fridge to await final, carving for the laniiJy supper.

"What really worries he said in a Chinook interview, "is the lethargy of the people. We're not giving government the support and direction that we should." As "welfare state-ism" grows he said, people become more dependent on government ser- vices and will one day become nfraid to criticize or change the government in office. "V.'lien people bryjmo afraid to change government, it will become an easy matter for the novcrnmcnt to takeover the po- lice and Ihe army to keep itself in office."

"There's no point now in dragging out said Mr. Hinman. "Premier Manning didn't say very much. He just said in light of the allegations that he felt compelled to ask for my resignation."
