Mr. Gundlock, one of 27 members of a federal all-party committee, said this morning the Liberal government has re- called the committee to Ottawa next Tuesday in a "rush job" to have it back the bill C-197. Parliament begins its fall sit- ting Oct. 5 and the Lethbridge MP said the bill should be re- examined during the House of Commons usual sitting. The Progressive Conserva- tives have "fought the bill" since it was announced last spring in the Throne Speech because the proposed legisla- tion states that the new seven- man board would be totally government-appointed. A newsletter sent out last spring by Mr. Gundlock sug- gests "the degree of power sought by the government goes Port Churchill Neglected Says Bay Route Official The Prairies' own seaport is being increasingly neglected by the federal government, James F. Gray, "secretary-manager of the Hudson Bay Route Associa- tion, charged in an interview in Lethbridge this week. The port at Churchill, Man., has been in existence for 40 years, Mr. Gray said. Rails were laid and a large grain terminal built in the hope that the prairie population would profit from the 'much shorter trade route to and from Eu- rope. However, Eastern-dom- inated political and business in- terests have forced one federal government after another to down-grade the use of Church- 187 German War Dead In Kitchener Cemetery The bodies of 18 German prisoners of war which were removed from Mountain View Cemetery in Lethbridge Thurs- day and shipped to Kitchener, Ont, will be placed in the Ger- man war graves section of Woodland Cemetery there. The section will contain 187 German military personel who died in Canada, mostly as pris- oners of war. Some are from the First World War. The bodies are being returned to Kitchener from 37 locations across Can- ada. Kitchener was chosen because of its central location and as PHARMACY FACTS From C. C STUBBS Have you ever wondered just what the "Rx" we display stands for and what it really means? The Rx is the. ever- present symbol associated with pharmacists, pre- pscriptions and the tp h a rmaceutical [profession. It's ta symbol which I always deserves your faith and c o n f i dence be- j cause the ethics, long and care- ful education ana professional ability of your pharmacist stand squarely behind each prescrip- tion compounded for you. The symbol, itself, is actually an abbreviation of the Latin word which meant recipe or form- ula, tire meaning of which was, "Take thou of. Our "Rx" is your guarantee of our con- tinued interest in your good health. Why be like the two cor- puscles who loved in vein? Here at Stubbs Pharmacy you can always be sure of fast, friendly service because 1506 9th Ave, S. is the place where we're glad to sec and be of service to you. the place with the greatest concentration of German-Cana- dians.

Schmitz, landscape architect is donating the ar- rangements for the German War Graves Commission, which is sponsoring the Kitchener pro- ject in co-operation with the federal government. ill, and its advantages are still not being realized.. Mr. Gray, a pioneer Sas- katchewan farmer, who has been working full-time for 13 years in promoting use of the bay route, said that although wheat can be shipped from prairie farms via Churchill to European markets for 12 cents less per bushel than through the Great Lakes, still only a nominal volume is routed that way. The highest annual figure so far has been 25 million .bushels, and with present facilities it could be at least double that, he s a i d. However in trying to find out why the volume is not more, there is only buck-pass- ing between the several au- thorities. Bringing the operation of the port more under the control of Western Canadian people and: their own provincial govern- ments might be necessary, Mr. Gray said, if the port is to have a better chance of reach- ing its potential. Wartime Mom And Dad Have To Skip City Visit The expected trip to the city of "Mom and Dad" Ballard from England failed to materi- alize Thursday due to unex- pected circumstances.

REAR OF OUR STORE far in excess of that proposed by representatives of the agri- culture industry and could usurp completely the controls now vested in the hands of pri- mary producers and provincial departments." The Conservative member said the bill should state ex- that, if the marketing board's members are to be gov- ernment appointed, producers must be among those selected. The proposed legislation calls for the establishment of a Na- tional Farm Products Market- ing Council and establishment of a National Marketing agency for farm products. Such bodies would take over the job of va- rious marketing agencies which now look after interpro- vincial and international trade and which in the past have shown a "lack of control." Mr. Gundlock said the Lib- erals' have a majority on the agricultural committee but thus far have "never had enough people present to pass the bill's recommendation. "I know of at least three Con- servatives who won't be able to gel to the meeting on Tuesday and' I think the Liberals know that." He suggested the current in- terprovincial dumping of eggs and chickens might be used by the government as an excuse to "push the recommendations through." He said the "rush job" on the agricultural committee and the lack of assurance that pro- ducers would be on the proposed marketing board are examples of the Liberals' ef- forts at a "controlled society." He cited Finance Minister Edgar Benson's white paper, the Canadian Radio-Television C o m m i s sion's broadcasting rules, Information Canada and the anti-Hate bill of the last ses- sion as other instances of the government's attempts at con- trol. Bus Line Plans New Service A new concept in bus travel for Canadians will be intro- duced in Alberta next spring if an application by Northern Bus Lines of Lethbridge for an ex- tension of services is approved. Steve Kotch, Northern presi- dent, announcer! today he has applied to the Highway Traffic Board in Edmonton for ap- proval for deluxe express ser- vice between Lethbridge and Calgary. If the service, comprising three trips a day each way, works out, it would be extended to Edmonton, Medicine Hat and other points in Alberta and British Columbia. Mr. Kotch said the service was not intended to compete with any existing regularly- scheduled service. Passengers would pay what he termed "premium fares" and in turn would receive a type of ser- vice not offered by other com- panies. If approved, the bus line would offer such amenities as hostesses, light lunches, tele- phones, tables and rest rooms. Mr. Kotch said he hoped to attract those people who did not want to fly or simply get from one place to another as economically as potfble on the existing bus service. Support for the application has been sought from various chambers of commerce, city 'councils and travel groups. The federal government, has also been asked to lend its support in view of the fact that the ex- tension would aid a Canadian- owned company. Social Studies Council Meet The first fall meeting of the Alberta Teachers' Association South West Regional Social Studies Council will bs held Monday, Sept. 21 at p.m. at Ericksen's Family Res- taurant. Topic of the meeting is Prob- lems of Implementation of the New Social Studies Program, with featured speaker Maurice Landry, director of elementary education with the Lethbridgi separate school district. Photos By Brian Wilson WHAM! Damage amounted to when a semi-troiler truck and a gravel truck, centre, collided about p.m. Thursday on the Qldman River Bridge. Tha drivers of the two trucks, Steve Nagy of Lethbridge and Harold C. Boyd of Edmonton were slightly injured. Mr. Boyd is in St. Michael's Hospital in good condition. Both trucks were travelling east at the time of the accident. A section of the guardrail wat badly bowed in the accident but remained i ntact, holding the trucks on the bridge. School Bus Color Said Not Exclusive Changing the color of school buses prior to sale would be "impossible" legislation to en- force and an "encroachment on personal liberty" according to Gordon Taylor, minister of highways and transport. The minister was replying by letter to a suggestion by the Lethbridge and District Safety Council that chrome yellow, the color of school buses, be re- stricted to use by the buses. The safety council contends that after sale the familiar yel- low color confuses motorists who are accustomed to stop- ping for school on the Local Leaders To Attend Chamber Meet The 19VO Canadian Chamber of Commerce annual four-day convention is scheduled to start Sunday in the Vancouver Ho- tel, Vancouver, B.C.

According to Mr. Taylor, since the color is a safe one, it should not be denied to anyone who wants to use it. At present the special lights which are required on school buses are to be removed before sale but warnings written on the back of the bus are not. Legislation in Saskatchewan docs require school buses to have the color changed before resale.
