By KEN ROBERTS Herald Staff Writer You'd never think they were bottles. They look more like statues but the tops of their heads unscrew and they have held or will hold 25 ounches of quality liquor. There are car-shaped bottles, a scenic bottle of a man skiing, animal figures and historic figures. Some of them are so realistically designed if you talked to them you would expect an answer. They are all part of a dis- play at Centre Village Mall sponsored by the Rangeland Bottle Club. Displayed are several hundred bottles worth between Nine of the bottles are insured for Highlighting the display are two bottles on loan from Don Q. Rums of Puerto Rico. The art work was done in Colorado. The bottle will be china fired in Japan and after being handfilled will be available to the public in 1975. Mr. Tom Randall, in charge of the display, says the Manitoba Bison Centennial Bottle when filled with Hudson Bay rye whisky in 1970 sold for Now the enpty bottle is worth between and They have become collector items because the molds were destroyed and only bottles were made. A bottle depicting the Canadian Non- such filled with Hudson Bay whisky sold for in 1971 but now empty is worth about Mr. Randall says a historical flask of George Washington made when he became president has fetched a price of Mr. Ran- dall himself has paid for one bottle. Most of the bottles dis- played are special and take years to design. First the art work is done, then the artist takes it to the distiller for approval and may have to make several changes until it's just right. A mold is made and then the distillers contract the reproduction to the china firm of their choosing. Reproduction may take up to one year. Then the bottles have to be hand-filled because they won't fit on an automatic filler. Mr. Randall says one bottle designed, won't be ready until 1980. He says bottle collecting is the third most popular hobby in North America behind coin and stamp collecting. He es- timated there were 20 million bottlecologists in North America. There are 35 members in the Lethbridge club and about 700 bottle collectors in Calgary. Special bottles can be purchased at specialty li- quor stores. These are designated by the Alberta Liquor Control Board to carry special kinds of liquor and liquor in fancy bottles. There isn't a specialty store in Lethbridge but there are two in Calgary. The display at Centre Village is located on the north side of the mall just two doors down from Simpson Sears. It is open for viewing Wednesdasy to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. except on Saturday when it closes at 6 p.m. There is no admission charge.

Coun. Henry Nummi said that if city council was an honorable body, they would have given the county the land for The city the county the land on the north-east cor- ner of 9th St. and 4th Ave. S. for under the condi- tion that the old building be demolished within a year and that a new county office be completed on the site within three years. At last month's county coun- cil meeting, councillors gave two readings to a bylaw accepting the city's offer, with an amendment that they be given four years to com- plete a new building. The city accepted the coun- ty's change, but when the time came Thursday to finalize the agreement, Coun. Nummi balked. He attempted to start dis- cussion on the purchase, again pointing out that the county owned a parcel of land south of Hardieville which could have been used for a new of- fice. But Coun. Jim Nicol said the council should recognize that it is a responsible body. He said the county has already endorsed the offer "and we should go ahead with it." Coun. Otto Wobick said, "We should either drop the whole thing or get on with it." After council gave un- animous support to the bylaw, Coun. Nummi remarked: "We just blew bucks." No firm decision was made at the meeting when the annex now standing on the site will be torn down, but under the city-county agreement, it must be demolished within one year.

Producers open new bean plant at Bow Island By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer BOW ISLAND Sod was turned here Thursday for a new bean cleaning plant which will provide producers in Southern Alberta with a cash crop market worth 000 in 1974. Alberta Bean Growers Ltd., a completely producer-owned and operated company in the Grassy Lake-Burdett-Bow Island district, is the first company to establish in this community's new industrial park. The plant will be located on a five-acre parcel and will employ four persons initially. V. C. (Lud) Prudek, presi- dent of Alberta Bean Growers, said a minimum of acres of field beans (different from garden green beans) will be needed for 1974 to keep the plant busy. He said acres have already been committed to the legume crop, up from about 900 acres this year. The production of two million pounds of beans expected this year is more than twice the amount grown last year, he said. Export market bright The crop, after cleaning and processing is marketed to canners (pork and beans) and packagers in Vancouver, Calgary and Taber. The product is sold in hundredweight bags to provin- cial institutions and the export market includes France, Phillippines, Germany and Venezuela. Japan has made strong inquiries about the crop. Beans from Southern Alberta fields have been used for chili con carne, baked pork and'beans, and packages of beans in stores throughout Western Canada. Four main varieties are grown in the south, including small red, pinks, Great Northern and pinto. The new plant will be able to clean and process beans from up to acres. Storage facilities will limit initial capacity to about acres, said Mr. Prudek. The premium beans will! primarily be used in Canada.! Some premium beans and No. j 2 beans will be sold on the ex- j port market. The 12 shareholders expect the plant to be in operation by December. Strom stresses quality Cyprus Social Credit MLA Harry Strom told about 100 area residents during a drizzle that the beginning of the plant signifies a great step forward for Southern Alberta, adding it will take the co-operation of primary producers to make the project a success. He stressed that marketing will be the other possible problem area for the com- pany, something which will be lessened if the farmers con- tinue to grow only top quality product. With top quality product and a continuity of supply, the former Socred premier said he was sure Southern Alberta was looking at an industry, which will be important toj consumers throughout the, world. Ray Dickson, product' development officer for marketing division of the' Alberta Department of Agriculture, told the crowd beans are an important crop because it is protein food in a, protein-hungry world. Bow Island Mayor Fred Mellon proclaimed Thursday a red letter day, a culmination of almost three years of work. He said the new bean plant will attract new industries to settle in Bow Island. Researcher praised Mr. Prudek, who showed praise on former Lethbridge Research Station employee Bill Hay as the man to recognize the crop's potential for Southern Alberta, pointed to the research being done to improve the varieties and agricultural methods. The Alberta Horticultural Research Center in Brooks has conducted tests at Brooks, Strathmore and Bow Island. The Lethbridge Research Sta- tion has tests underway also. In an attempt to interest more farmers in the crop, an abbreviated field day was held at the Prudek farm, six miles south of Bow Island. Mr. Prudek told the gather- ing that beans represent cash for the farmer when delivered to the cleaning and processing plant and will help increase yields on other crops grown on the land in following years. ALBERTA SCHOOL TRUSTEES He said the legume crop has' a property which adds nitrogen to the land. This will help cut the fertilizer costs for farmers, he said, and increase hay crops one to two tons per acre and cereal crops five to 10 bushels per acre. When the beans are taken to the plant, they will be moved through a scalper unit to remove initial dirt and chaff. They then go into one of four storage tanks or into one of 200 steel boxes capable of holding pounds of beans. BERGMAN'S FLOOR COVERINGS Custom Installations Ph. 328-0372 2716 12 Ave. S?
