N. White. "We've got to have more fi- nancial help from governments (federal and provincial) than we've been receiving or we are finished." He said without capital in- vestment of at least S30 mil- lion, .irrig a t i o n systems in southern Alberta could be "seri- ously impaired." The EID, comprising 1.5 mil- linn acres, needs million worth of new structures and million in new reservoirs. The district was developed by Canadian Pacific Railway and sold in 1935 to local farmers who still hold title, under the irrigation district, to the land It has miles of drainage miles of. ditch and 7.50C structures. Brooks is about 100 miles northeast of Letlibridge. Meanwhile, tenders have been called by the Eastern Irrigation District for the construction of control structures for One Tree reservoir, located about six miles south of Brooks. Tenders will be received unti p.m., Sept. 22. This is one of two internal storage reservoirs to be built, replacing the old which are worn out. The new reservoir is part of a rehabilitation program to con trol the water storage north of Bassano. The contractor will be re- quied to construct a turnout and a drop inlet spillway. Prisoners' Bodies Shipped To Ontario Two boxes containing the dis- interred remains of 18 German prisoners of war are being shipped today from Lethbridge to a cemetery in Kitchener, Out. The bodies are those of pris- oners who died, or were ex- ecuted, while held at the Leth- bridge prisoner-of-war camp during the Second World War.

The removal of the bodies from the local cemetery and shipment to the new location has been organized by the Ger man War Graves Commission in Ottawa.

ORRPC Stands Opposed To Gas Price Increase By HERB JOHNSON Herald City Hall Reporter The Oldman River Regional Planning Commission Wednes- day went on record as oppos- ing the proposed rate increase by Canadian Western Natural Gas Co. Ltd. Included in the resolution, proposed by Letlibridge alder- man C. W. Chichesler, was an endorsment of the submission the city intends to make to the Public Utilities Board in Cal- gary when hearings into the in- crease open Sept. 22. John Hammond, Lethbridge city solicitor and Oli Erdos, util- ities director, were present at the commission meeting to ex- plain as much as possible the effects the proposed increase might be expected to 'nave. Mr. Hammond pointed out that while the city had a copy of tiie submis s i o n CWNG in- tends to pesent to the Public Utilities Board, it was extreme- ly complex and could not be fully explained except by an ex- pert. He asked the commission to oppose the increase on the grounds that it would contri- bute to the inflationary spiral. The reasons for it, he said, hat not been made clear and coulc not be debated. They would come out at the utilities board hearing. He said the increase would eventually "filter down" to the farmer, the backbone of our economy, who could not pass it on to anyone else and who could not afford to absorb it. In addition to opposing the increase as a body, commis- sion members were asked to generate support for the com- mission's stand within the in- dividual communities. The proposed increase, an- nounced Aug. C by CWNG, va- ries from 13 per cent down to no increase at all for the vari- ous commun i t i e s within Uie commission's area. If approved, it would come into effect in Feb- ruary. The commission also heard, and saw, an audiovisual presen- tation from Lorne Bradley, a reprcsenta t i v e of Techniscan Systems Ltd. of Vancouver. Techniscan, whose parent company is an industrial de- velopment firm in Ottawa, pro- duces filmstrips designed to promote economic expans ion for particular areas. Tile firm includes a distribu- tion service that carries the filmstrips and a data sheet to business development and trade commission offices in the Uni- ted States and Europe. The commission cannot enter into an agreement with the company to produce promotion, a! material for the area, but individual member communities may decide to take advantage of the firm's services, singly or collectively. Part one of the Crowsnest Pass subregional study was dis- tributed at the meeting. Part two and three of the study, already released, are summarized in part one. Dealing with population, econ- omy, regional development and urban renewal in the Crowsnest Pass area, the study was de- signed to prepare an over-all development plan for the 'Pass. Erwin Adderley, executive di- ector, said he was concerned hat the concepts contained in (lie study be carried out. The possibility of federal and provincial funds being made ivailable for implementation of indings contained in the docu- ment was being pursued, he aid.
