Sugar Beet Harvest Begins September 28 Dy 110SS CIB1J Herald News Service TABER Seasonal opera- tions at the sugar factories at Taker and Picture Butle will get under way at 8 a.m. 'Wed- nesday, September 30, it was announced earlier by Dwight W. Purdy of Lethbridge, man- ager of Canadian Sugar Facto- ries Ltd. The sugar beet harvest will commence on Monday the 28, with all receiving stations on an open quota. Weather per- mitting, it is expected that suf- ficient beets will be out of the ground to keep the two plants operating at capacity. The announcement of start of "campaign" was made follow- ing a meeting between sugar company officials and di- rectors of Alberta Sugar Beet Growers Association: Beet receiving units are be- ing readied for a high rate of deliveries, a number of pilers having been improved for more rapid handling of loads. Indications are tiiat the beet crcp is a bit better than aver- age. A voluntary reduction in sug- ar beet acreage in the spring, due to the large crop raised last year, will result in about acres to harvest, down nearly acres from year. Consequently, the last ton- nage of beels will be some 000 tons less than the 1969 har- vest. The two plants are expected to process tons of beets per 24-hour day on a seven- dav-vveelt schedule a1 Picture Butte and at Ta- ber, Operations should be com- pleted well before the Christ- mas season. it will be the 21st campaign for the Tabor plant, and the 45th for Picture Butte.

This is the first phase of a "pollution reduction" plan which next year will include the fine-screening of waste wa- ters to remove bits of beets and other organic matter detrimental to the free oxygen balance of the Oldman River. 11 New Homes Okayed By Blairmore Council By VERN DECOUX Crowsnest Pass Bureau BLAIRMORE Blairmore's overall assessment value jump ed considerably when council approved the construction ol 11 more new homes over the Jiree presently being built in the Mountain-Aire subdivision.
