Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 26, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, September 26, 1970 Canada Still Has Big Wheat Surplus By STEVE RAREIIAM Herald Farm Writer Despite sales of 550 million bushels of wheat this year, Canada is still going to be left with a surplus of about 750 mil- lion bushels and nobody seems to know what's going to be done with it. The wheat surplus of one bil- lion bushels has remained fair- ly static since last spring and combined with the 1970 crop of 300 million bushels, less the 550 million bushels export figure, Canada is left with about 750 million bushels. Otto Lang, minister in charge of the Canadian wheat board, said barley sales will easily ex- ceed the export record of 122 million bushels, because of se- vere drought conditions in Aus- Travel Series At College World travel will be featured five Thursdays in a general in- terest program at the Leth- bridge Community College. The program material is as- sembled from the extensive collectin of Mrs. Marion Virtue of Lethbridge, world traveller. It will include travel tips and lectures, color slides and cur- ios. The first of the five Thursday sessions will be Oct. 22, from 7-9 p.m. Advance registration for the series may be had by telephoning the LCC or for- warding the registration form printed in The Herald.

According to the Alberta de- partment of agriculture, there were an estimated cat tie and calves on Alberta farms, June 1, 1970 five per cent more than the head of a year earlier, and the first increase in June 1 figures since IOCS. Beef cows were estimated at head, up five per cent from the same time in 1969 and beet heifers increased by two per cent to head The number of steers incrcasec by tliree per cent to head. The number of steers in- creased by three per cent to head and the number of calves in the province was up eight per cent to head In the total Canadian pic- ture, cattle and calves were es- timated at up four per cent from at Hie same time last year. Light replacement cattle are hard to find in the province at the present lime, as cash grain feeding was common last fall and spring. Some officials the cattle industry predict a surplus of beef in Canada within three years when the holding trend now in evidence ceases, and a flood of fat cattle hit the mar- ket. A pork surplus could occur much sooner, and appears to be a distinct possibility as hcg numbers are up by 23 per cent throughout Canada. Alberta has recorded a 33 per cent in- crease in hog numbers, and re- ports from the United States department of agriculture indi- cate an increase there of 13 per cent- Although pork consumption on a per capita basis is expect- ed to rise in both Canada and the U.S., the increase in num- bers has been too great and the cultivation of foreign mar- kets seems to be the only sure way of avoiding a glut.

Noise Pollution Still Live Issue The problem of noise pollu- tion in Ihe city is not a dead issue as far as Mayor Andy Anderson is concerned. Mayor Anderson said Friday that although a motion by Alderman Vera Ferguson that steps be taken to raise the licensing age for motor scooter operators had been defeated, something still has to be done to solve the problem. Noting that the noise pollu- tion caused by motor bikes was caused by older drivers, as well as the 14- and 35-year-olds the motion was aimed at, May- or Anderson suggested that an effective approach might be to "put some teeth" into the pen- alty clauses of existing regula- tions. Existing legislation on noisy mufflers contained in the Motor Vehicles Act is sufficient to con- trol the situation, he said, pro- vided the penalties are stiff enough. He suggested that impound- ing an offender's motorbike for a month might prove more ef- fective than a fine. Some provincial action may be forthcoming. A resolution regarding noise pollution win, he said, be presented at the Al- berta Urban Municipalities As- sociation meeting in October. Booze Costly Terry Weslergrecn, 19, of Lelhbridge was fined when he pleaded guilty in magis- trate's court in Lcthbrid'ge to two charges of illegal posses- sion of. liquor.

BEER COSTS 5100 In hvo separate incidents Gil- bert Eagle Bear of Fort Mac- leod and George Houghton of Coalhurst were each fined ?100 when they pleaded guilty in magistrate's court to having li- quor hi their possession, not purchased in Canada.
