Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, September 5, 1974 More sunlight needed for sugar beet growth A few more weeks free of severe frost would help to en- sure an optimum sugar beet harvest, expected to get un- derway in the South Sept. 30. Gerald Snow, agricultural superintendent for Canadian Sugar Factories, said Wednes- day acres of sugar beets appear to be normal at this stage of development. Mr. Snow said the beets have entered a phase of growth in which the sugar development in the root starts to increase. There is about 12 per cent sugar content in the beets and this will increase to about 16 per cent within the next four to five weeks as the plants convert sunlight and fertilizer to sugar. But frost can't be tolerated by the beets in this normal beet development growing period, said Mr. Snow. Frost would stop the plant develop- ment until new leaves can be produced to continue plant growth. Growth in the beet fields is increasing at a rate of one ton per acre per week un- der ideal growing conditions. The two processing plants in Taber and Picture Butte will begin operations Oct. 2. Mr. Snow said all fieldwork in beets has been completed and final irrigation work is be- ing done. About growers will begin hauling harvested beets to 14 receiving stations Sept. 30. Two new stations have been established, one north of Coaldale and one at Vauxhall. Other beet receiving stations are at Raymond, Stewart, Broxburn, Wing, Tempest, Cranford, Taber factory. Burdett, Bow Island, Picture Butte factory, Turin and a railway receiving sta- tion at Coaldale. Mr. Snow said the Coaldale station is simply in a new location. The Vauxhall station has been established because of increased sugar beet LCC enrolment up, first count says With a slight increase in first-day registrations this year, the Lethbridge Com- munity College expects to sur- pass its 1973-74 enrolment of 1.184 students. Enrolment figures released by Registrar A. F. Blakie Wednesday showed the college with 925 students on opening day this year, an increase of 34 over the number registered on the same day last year.

The vocational agriculture program is scheduled to begin Sept. 30 and the agriculture mechanics program is to register students Oct. 8. An increased enrolment of 37 students in the recreation and conservation education program caused increase in the total student population. Most programs registered a similar number of students as the previous year or showed slight decreases in enrolment. The college governors decided not to rent any more of its building space. It rents space to the regional branch of the Alberta departments of education and agriculture. Both departments have requested more space. Dr. C. D. Stewart, president, said the college needs any remaining space for its own purposes.

Vauxhall farmers have traditionally hauled th.eir beets to the Taber factory, the largest receiving station in the system. In 1973, the peak storage at the Taber factory was tons with only expected this year due to the absence of the Vauxhall product. Following harvest, the fac- tory will haul the Vauxhall beets to Taber by truck. School enrolments dropping The declining birth rate of the past decade continues to cause dropping enrolments in city schools. Final enrolment figures for the end of August show the public school enrolment decreasing by 56 students and separate school enrolment down by 68 students from a year ago. The elementary schools again were the victims of the decline while junior and senior high schools enrolled a similar number of students or showed slight increases over 1973. Public elementary schools registered 122 students fewer than in 1973 while public ju- nior high schools increased their enrolment by five students and the public high schools registered 61 more students than last year. The largest decline in separate school numbers was in Grade 2 and 3 with each grade registering 20 fewer students. Surprisingly, the Grade 1 population increased by 10 students. When school opened Aug. 21. separate school officials an- ticipated an enrolment par with 1973, but the number of late arrivals fell below expec- tations. August permits down The value of building per- mits issued by city hall in August took a dip compared with last August's figures, but the 1974 total to date remains above that of 1973. Ninety-two permits worth were put out last month, bringing the 1974 total to 806 permits worth S21.653.000. That compares with 114 per- mits worth in August. 1973. and 779 worth S19.496.000 to the end of August. 1973. The biggest drop in construction this August was in housing, reflecting the nationwide slowdown in house-building due to the high interest, tight money- mortgage situation. Only 21 permits for new houses worth were issued this August compared with 58 worth Sl.324.000 in August last year.

Moire classes for pensioners killed by college budget Despite protests from one of its members, the Lethbridge Community College board of governors Wednesday turned down a request by the LCC school of continuing education for additional funds to expand its course offerings to senior citizens. The board voted against the request for additional funds on the grounds that it should have been included in the 1974-75 budget and to grant such funds now would not be in line with the college's long-range program planning. Governor John Walker ac- cused the other members of the board of being too rigid and suggested it was time they spent "more money on the old people." He suggested the board was becoming just as rigid as other levels of government that have become more interested in maintaining their policies than meeting the immediate needs of people. "I don't like it and I will be vocal about it." he warned. Dr. Stewart disagreed that the board was being too rigid. "I feel some obligation to the public not to go much out of line" from its budgetary com- mitments to the department of advanced education. "Do we follow our budget or do we move with whatever comes in and appears attrac- tive." he asked. Governor Dick Johnson also disapproved of altering the college's long-range budgeting and presented the motion thai refused funding of new senior citizen courses. The proposed courses would have cost the college The new courses proposed for introduction to the con- tinuing education program included ceramics, conver- sational French, creative decorations, tour of the world by slides and resincraft. The courses were lo be oHcred at the Grean Acres Senior Citizens Home, Blue Sky Lodge Senior Citizens Home. Golden Acres Senior Citizens Home and the Coaldale senior citizens home. The school of continuing education operated a pilot pro- ject during the 1973-74 school year that offered the elderly at the Golden Mile Senior Citizen Centre a choice of several courses.

Marina Alice Riding At The Door is suffering from several broken bones and internal in- juries as a result of a fall from the window of the building in the 100 block 7th Avenue S. E. into a court yard below. Calgary city police regard the fall as accidental. PENNER'S PLUMBING 1209 2nd Ave S. Phone 327-4121 The home has requested that the courses be continued this year and three other senior citizen homes have also asked that courses be offered to their residents. Even though the governors refused to approve the funding needed to offer the courses, there is still a possibility the courses can be made available to the senior citizens this year. The governors suggested LCC administrators should ex- plore obtaining provincial and federal funds to operate the courses. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC SdMIitZlUi. 2225ft SI. S.
