By JIM URANT Herald Staff Writer A two month publicity campaign launched by the provincial government last week to attract more Albertans into the trades has been applauded by the presi- dent of Lethbridge Communi- ty College. C. D. Stewart, in an inter- view, said he expects that the promotional campaign will result in expansion and development of new appren- ticeship programs at the college. The campaign may en- courage some people to "come out of the woodwork" and obtain the education they need to be skilled tradesmen, he suggested. When Manpower Minister Bert Hohol kicked off the campaign last week, he said it was initiated to alleviate the acute shortage of skilled tradesmen in the province. Pipe fitting, welding and carpentry were cited by the minister as the trades with the worst shortages of skilled personnel. Dr. Stewart doesn't believe the current shortage of tradesmen is the direct result of a lack of foresight by the Brooks landowners form association BROOKS Landowners in the Eastern Irrigation District must look after their own interests while co operating with people who are trying to develop energy resources, says Tom Livingston of Duchess. Mr. Livingston. a spokesman for the board of directors of the Eastern Irrigation District Landholders Association, says.

Southolm Farm has made similar export sales of registered S tops tt t JOTt Angus breeding stock. The government of Argentina recently purchased five Angus bulls through the Alberta department of agriculture, the third order for Southolm in the last 12 months.

TABER (HNS) There will be about 20.000 miles of extra curricular school bus travel during the next school year for 11 schools in Taber School Division 6. Cost of the extra transporta- tion is estimated at School trustees based their approval on the need of each school for transportation for sports and music events and for field trips. However, rather than allocate mileage lor each of the three areas, schools will be able to dis- tribute the approved travel as .seems best. The total mileage allocation, based on enrolments and involvement in inter school sports ac- tivities, for each scr-c-rl is: Barnwell. 3.075: Chamberlain. 2.730; Enchant. 1.160: Hays. 1.420: Kin- niburgh. 340; W. R. Myers. 5.600: Taber Central. 725; Dr. Hamman. Taber. 725: L. T. Westlake. Taber. 450; Vaux- hall High. 4.250: Vauxhall Elementary. 1.000. for a total of 19.475 bus miles for the >ear.

"This is their (the lan- downers) association and it needs the support of the landholders in the EID. There is a representative in even' district in the county who can give information concerning the association." Also on the board are Bill Darago. Norman Musgrove. Rudy Peltzer. Ken Pickett. Carl Block. Jim Thomsen. Dennis Petersen. Steve Merkl and Don Alberts. The association wants: promote a better work- ing relationship between those engaged in developing the mineral resources of the area and the owners of the surface rights: develop operating policies with the operators in the development of natural resources compatible with irrigation and farming prac- tices: work toward minimal permanent surface damage: To keep the landholders of the area informed on current developments vital to their in- dividual interests. One association goal has been reached. The Energy Resources Board has agreed to allow the target area for gas wells to be moved to the corners of the quarter sec- tions, in cases where centre drilling was not compatible with ihc agricultural methods used on Jhat particular quarter provincial government in preparing for Alberta's man- power needs "I have been a firm believer that it is not that easy to forecast manpower needs." Business and industry, he said, are often tight lipped about any plans for future development until they are ac- tually prepared to carry out plans Such secrecy makes it dif- ficult for government officials to forecast future manpower needs Dr. Stewart disapproved of the province's announcement that it would encourage the training of apprentices in composite high schools. Past results have proven that students graduating from high school trade programs still need to participate in a college or technical appren- ticeship program to become high qualified tradesmen, he said. However, high school programs do an excellent job of familiarizing the student with the trade and encourag- ing him to become a skilled tradesmen, he added.
