Detachment or write to 'Lethbridgo Sub-Division Headquarters By IUC SWIIIART Staff Writer The University of Alberta faculty of agriculture tour of agricultural Alberta, a course necessary for graduation, visit- ed the Noble Cultivators Ltd. plant Thursday. Dr. A. Dean Howes, assistant professor of animal science' and one of the lour directors from the university, said the tour has been part of the course for about 10 years and is set up to acquaint the stu- j dents and faculty of agricul- ture with contemporary agri- culture. "We try to cover as large a i scope as possible in Ihe agri-' culture industry to give the stu- dents a chance to learn new things about he said. The Alberta Institute of Agrology co-ordijiates the tour with the university lo provide chances for discussion between the students and the agricul- ture indushy. There were 76 students, pri- marily fourth year students, on the tour and they met with Lethbridge members of AIA at the Marquis Hotel for a ban- quet and a panel discussion on Uie beef industry in southern Alberta Dr. Sid Sen, head of the ani- mal science department at the Lethbrirlge Research Station moderated Uie panel which in- cluded Jim Gough, manager of t li e Swift Canadian meat packing plant. Ross Nielson manager o[ Highway 52 Feed- ers, Lee S'.anford, manager of Veiled Feeds Lid. and Howard Card, shareholder in Highway Feeders and a chartered ac- counlant specializing jn ijVC- slock operations Hfr. Gough told the group 50 per cent of (he farm cash in- come is derived from livestock and one third of this total comes from cadle. He said the 1970 total for cat- tle sold was million in Leth- bridge with an expectation of 5100 million for this year. He said Ihe beef consumption for Canadians is 87 pounds per I capita with (lie outlook for 1980 at 111 lo 119 pounds. 1 "This means, nt present pop-1 ulation figures, the cattle pop- ulation for Canada will have to be increased by to a million head. "Since Alberta kills one-third of Canada's beef, this means aJi increase for the province of to keep pace with the current population." Mr. Nielson explained some of the problems inherent in the feeder operation, including health of animals. He said the cost of gain for his operation runs about 21 cents per pound of gain. The trend is to high concentrate feed which results in higher- weighing animals in a shorter time. "There will be more feed lols than cattle to put In tl'cm if Uie history in the United States Swimming, skating available The Fritz Sick pool is sched- uled to reopen Monday with swimming lor the public from 1 to 7 p.m. Sunday, the hours for public swimming will be from 1 to 5 p.m. Family swimming is from 6 lo 8 p.m. the same day. Saturday, the Lions Pool in North Lctbbridge will close for (he season because of poor at- tendance at public swimming sessions. The parks and recreation de- partment also announced that Hie Adams Park Ice Centre will open Saturday.

Mr. Stanford said the day of Uie small feed mill is almost over, indicating the feeder op- eration business ranks 17th largest in North America. He said the feed usage in Lethbridge differed from the provincial average since great percentage of Ihe cattle feeder operation is situated in southern Alberla. The provincial figures lor feed usage for cattle, hogs and poultry are 40 per cent, 35, and 25 while Lethbridge uses 50 per cent for cattle, only 20 per cent for hogs and 30 per cent for poultry. Some of Uie problems in the industry, he said, are the lack of specialists and the. large vol- ume, low marginal operation necessary due to short capital in agriculture. Mr. Card said Ihe lack of ef- 1 ficicncy in the use of available capital presents a real problem lodaj'. He said Uie Uiings necessary for the feeder operation are: knowledge of revenue and cost expectations, available capital to build and operate the busi- ness, payoff of expenditures in reasonable length o[ time, ne- cessary labor and management and knowledge of the source and cost of money if needed. He said the role of Uie ac- countant in the business is lc lell the operator the costs in- herent in the business so ho will know when (o act. fn the lively question period following, one person brought Die fact cut Irat Ihe Cards.'on area is responsible for 50 per I cent of the provincial sheep population.

No representation problems foreseen by city Socreds By HERD JOHNSON Slaff Writer Lethbridge apparently will have adequate reprcscnlalion in the provincial government, de- spite Hie fact ils two HLAs will be sitting on lire opposition side of (he Legislative Assembly. Dick Gruenwald, successful Social Credit candidate Ln Letli- bridge West, told The Herald that while his role will un- doubtedly be different under a Progressive Conservative rath- er than Socred government, he is "still the 1ILA and intends to represent his constituency." He said his first job would be to establish a working relation- ship with the government. He was not going lo Edmonton simply to "knock down" all government programs, he said. He intends to support good ones and criticize those that he feels deserve it. He said there was no reason for Lethbridge to feel "left out in the southern Alberta would not be penalized simply because it had voted Social Credit. Official election results Final results of the Aug. 30 provincial election released by the two Lethbridge returning of- fices confirm victories by So- cial Credit candidates Dick Gnienwald and Jolmnie Ander- son. In Lelhbridge West Mr. Gruenwald polled votes, Dick Gray (Progressive Con- servative) and K1 a a s Buijert (NDP) 670. Lethbridge East official to- tals were Johnnie Anderson Richard Barton (Progres- sive Conservative) 4.374 and Doug Poile (NDP) 8M. Local voters favored daylight saving time almost 3 to 1. Final count was for and against. In Lethbridge West it was for with against. In Lethbiirlgc East the count was for and 2.466 against. Jolmnie Anderson, represent- ing Lethbridge East, expressed similar views. He said he had a feeling Premier Lougheed would "be fair" and not ignore the -outh just because it had not voted for him. He added that he intends to "fight for the rights" ot south- ern Alberta In the legislature. A type of unofficial represen- tation may also be available through Dick Gray, who ran second lo Mr. Gruenwald in Lethbridge West. Mr. Gray said he had talked with Mr. Lougheed on this mat- ter and that he would be able to act as a channel of com- munications, directing prob- lems to the appropriate cabinet minister once the cabinet had been formed. He had already been ap- proached by local citizens re- garding several mailers, he said, end would assist in any way he could as a member of the parly. His position was similar to thai of Cardston PC Larry Lang, who announced Ihis week he would act in a liaison capac- ity with the government, even Ihough unsuccessful in the election. PC Richard Barton, came second in Lelhbridge East, said he did not feel he had any similar role to play, at least not for Die moment. He said that since he had not been charged with that re- sponsibility by Hie electorate, he could not asr.ume it. He had a definite concern about representation for Leth- bridge, he said, but any action would have to be initiated by the government, not a defeated candidate. Swim class has vacancies Only a few vacancies fnr adults and teenagers are left in the Lethbridge recreation de- partment fall swim classes. Tom Hudson, city recreation program coordinator said all the school-age and pre-school classes are full. Vacancies remain in the mixed adult and teenage Red Cross classes, the royal life saving course and the joint in- structors' program. A total of 260 youngsters will participate in the fall program. The lessons are given once a week for 12 weeks. Registrations for the next swim instruction program in the Fritz Sick pool at the Civic Sports Centre complex will re- sume in January.
