Lower Level 7th Street Shopping Wall Lethbridge, Alberto Phone {403J 328-7411 HOME AND OFFICE SAFES YURKO ON TOUR Better use sought for By AL SCARTH Herald Staff Writer CFR SUFFIELD Alberta Environment Minister Bill Yurko said Thursday he will ask the federal government to participate in a major study to find new uses for this square mile mili- tary reserve. "I feel very certain that better use of the land can be found than military train- Mr. Yurko said after a four hour tour of the re- serve. "It is my intention to ap- proach the federal govern- ment for an overall environ- mental impact assessment. I would offer to do this on a 50-50 basis." The approach should be made within two months. He said the study would determine the economic and recreational pjtential of the area. Mcst of the reserve could be used as range- land, and there was "valu- able recreational real estate" along the South Saskatch- ewan River, he said. Mr. Yurko said he found "substantial disturbance" of the terrain by armored vehicles. But a study _ would determine how damaging to the terrain that disturbance was. It could be that the posi- tive economic influence of the military base on sur- rounding communities would outweigh the damage for the present. Dust bowl discounted He discounted opinions that a dust bowl could be created by armored vehicles being operated here by the British army. The British have a 10- year agreement with the fed- eral government now near- ing the end of its second year. The grasslands under use had regenerated themselves to a "remarkable" degree, he said, but cautioned that the training exercises could continue for a damagingly long time. There was no doubt that military activities, grazing of cattle and exploring for na- tural gas could be carried on simultaneously, he said. He complimented the Canadian military for its' co-ordination of those activities. But he said the province eventually wanted the land turned to other uses than military ones. "It is only a matter of timing." At the moment, the PFRA is grazing cattle on 000 or about one sixth of the acre block. Farmers ship the cattle as far as 260 miles, pasture manager Dave Gularneau told the minister. It costs eight cents per head per day. The department of defence opens the pasture land for use on a contingency basis and the PFRA is hoping to establish a firmer grip on it. Mr. Yurko also visited test wells being drilled by the province to evaluate huge natural gas reserves under the block. He said he was confident the disturbance caused by sinking them will be easily obliterated. Archeologists fruitful Archeological digs support- ed by his department were also on Mr. Yurko's agenda. He was enthusiastic in his support for the project which has uncovered Indian camps to years old.

Extensive sections of the training area burned over from fires started by mili- tary firing or lightning were viewed. Mr. Yurko said he could not agree with base commander Col. John Bever- idge that there was less dam- age now because the military kept a close watch on pre-' viously unattended fires and had also constructed many fire breaks. Mr. Yurko said that man's fires had now been added to nature's, and "from the num- ber of areas I have seen burn- ed, I must view that theory with some caution."

Recreation group to discuss trails A two-day meeting on rec- reation trail planning will be hosted by the Southern Al- berta Recreation Council at the Civic Centre Oct. 12 and Oct. 13. The meeting, sponsored by the Alberta government rec- reation committee, will con- sist of an evening session the first day, and afternoon, morning and possibly an eve- ning session the second day, Bob Jenkins coordinator and chairman of the meeting said Wednesday. The two-day seminars are part of a series of meetings being held throughout the province. Others are sched- uled for Edmonton, Calgary and Grande Prairie during October. Attending meetings here will be members of the coun- cil as well as citizens from Lethbridge and surrounding communities, who are inter- ested in the development of hiking and bicycle trails. Even though a number of recreation trails already exist in the province for such pur- poses as hiking, riding, bicy- cling, bird watching and snowmobiling, the provincial committee believes more can be done to provide recreation outlets for citizens. Tax discount cheques mailed to homeowners Lethbridge home owners should get their homeowner grant cheques today or early next week. That's the word from de- partment of municipal affairs deputy minister W. D. Isbis- ter, who said the education tax rebates for Lethbridge were mailed Thursday. Mr. Isbister said Leth- bridge homeowner grant ap- plications have been process- ed so far for a total refund of under the govern- ment's property tax reduc- tion plan introduced this year. The cheques are mailed di- rectly to homeowners who have paid their property taxes in full, and are mailed to city hall to apply to ac- counts of those who have not paid that portion of their taxes. City hall had received a number of irate phone calls from residents wondering where the cheques were after reading an Aug. 17 news story which carried a state- ment from the municipal af- fairs department that the cheques were on the way. The delay was the time required to process cheques for the whole province. E. S. P. FOX Certified Dental Mechanic FOX (loth.) DENTAL LAB LTD. 204 Medical Dental Bldg.

Mr. Sauer has a jump on many of his counterparts on otter served with Ae sports committee of the 1971 Winter Games group in Saskatoon. The sports committee has divided up the 18 Winter Games sports into groups of four and named co-ordinators for each group. The co- ordinators will in turn select a chairman for each sport who will be responsible for organizing the sport and re- cruiting the necessary man- power to run it.

Woodward Stores Ltd. will unveil its plans for its down- town development at a recep- tion at Sven Ericksens Fam- ily Restaurant Wsdnesday. C. N. Woodward, chairman of the board, and other senior officers of the company will be present for the unveiling. The Woodwards board was expected to make a decision today in a Vancouver meet- ing concerning the land switch on the Marshall Auto property west of 2nd Avenue S. The company had asked that its 10 acres there be changed to run along 2nd Avenue between 3rd and 5th Streets, instead of in a west- erly direction down the coulee lines, because of the problem of old mine shafts under that land. City council agreed to that change Tuesday but asked ART that Woodwards pay the city the cost of developing it into a parking lot within. 10 years instead of 20 as was original- ly agreed to. Woodwards will pay up to of the costs of de- velopment, and while the city does not yet have an esti- mate of these costs, it ap- pears the cost of developing the 10 acres along 2nd Ave- nue will be less because that area will require less fill than the original 10 acres.
