The Market Square compound incorporates 43 spaces formerly available for public parking In a letter to The Leader-Post Mr. Steinberg outlines the system used by Edmonton police for handling impounded vehicles. Four companies with 24-hour towing and storage facilities are Called in rotation to pick up the cars. They are required to have insurance coverage for damage to or theft from stored vehicles, and must charge no more than $8 a month for storage. An additional flat $3 fee must be paid to the police accountant before any vehicle can be released. NO INVESTMENT Mr. Steinberg suggests that a rimilnr system - in Regina would free the compound space for public parking, without requiring capital investment by the city. All costs of impoundment, he points out. are paid by people whose vehicles have been seized. Police Chief A. G. Cookson declined to comment on the matter. The enclosure was authorized by city council li September 1957 on the recommendation of the police commission and trarfic board. The fence was not erected until late last year. Mr. Steinberg has previously criticized the move in a letter to council. the final dav of its three-day sessions, he said: Producer prices in the province are as high or higher tiian in fnost areas In Canada Consumer prices for house-to-house delivery are lower in this province than in marv areas . , .hut the margin of nro'it in Saskatchewan is romoaHible. The number of producers has been decreasing hut production has Increased: quality of the product has imnroved; sales have Increased: margin of profit with some reservations perhaos has been maintained, and the eorvimerJias not been complainin' " Exniainlng the formula used hv the board to con'rnl prices, Mr. R'dlev sold an index had been sot un with wholesale price and consumer price at 12,5 per ce-t each, average weekly wage at 23. commodities and services used by farmers 25, oats 15, ard farm wages 10. The formula Is used as a guide In Saskatehewan. but with minor changes from time to time It could be used as a definite producer price-setting factor as i n some other provinces, Mr. Ridley said. CONTINUITY One of the board's problems Is continuity and Duality of supniv. Other agencies enter into qualitv and a shortage of quality could a'fect the continuity of supniv. If the market produces the desired qualitv much in excess of requirements the average producer price might be far lower than set by the board. Should the board establish prices to curtail over-production? Mr. Ridiev asked. And should the consumer he charged more so the average of fluid mi'k and mm-ufactured milk could be raised to a level more acceptable to the producer? In areas of under-production, should the producer price be set highfr than normal to encourage production? Or should the board order that milk from over-production areas be moved to areas of under-nroduction? Are delivery costs toohlgh? Would every-other-day, excluding Stindav,- delivery reduce costs? Should whplesale prices be lowered to encourage sales through stores and reduce the number of vehicles reouired for house-to hoqfe delivery? FIVE-DAY-WEEK Mr. Ridley said the board has favored the five-day-week delivery rather than on the six-dav basis as an economy measure but In Vancouver deliveries have been reduced to every-other-day. Stores in British Columbia, Winnipeg and Toronto are selling milk at Prices lower than milk is being delivered to homes, and Quebec is presently considering store and delivery differentials. together with ouantitv and multiple quart-container prices. The increase in Drice allowed last year was justified by poor pasture conditions and scarcity of forage crons throughout a large part of the province, Mr. Ridley said. An exciting new era In high-er temperature treatment of dairy products was forecast bv Prof. E. S. Humbert assistant professor of dairy science et Uni-veristv of Saskatchewan in a n address to manufacturing delegates. He was sneaking of pasteurization methods. He said the new process now undergoing exoerimentation Is extremely efficient. It uses temperatures in excess of 175 degrees fahrenheit. The common practice Is to heat milk to temneratures between 161 degrees and 175 for a minimum of 15 seconds. This system has provided dairy processors with an' automatic and continuous method. but market mi'k is still susceptible to bacteriological and chemical deterioration within a relatively short time even under good storage conditions, Prof. Humbert said. Te value of the new ultra high temoeratures is that fluid milk products can be kent longer without spoiling and with less re'rigeration and thev do not de-stroy any of its nutritional qualities.

Approximately 36 landowners are affected by the proposed annexation of lands, almost equal to the present 24 square-mile area of the city. About three-quarters of this land lies north of the city, with sizable portions to the east and south. Regina Citv Commissioner John Siccl was authorized by city council early this month to open discussions with Sherwood council, over the annexation. No formal request to annex land can be made to the government until city council has heard objections from landowners affected. As an upshot of their discussions Wednesday night 36 municipal landowners signed a petition seeking suppef t of the council of Sherwood municipality, in opposing gie annexation because they feel much of the land will not be developed for other than agricultural purposes in the forseeable future if ever." TAX JUMP One farmer estimated that under a city schedule, taxes on his land would jump from 50 cents to $2.60 an acre. Another faced an increase from 50 cents to $2 an acre. Their holdings vary from a. quarter section to three sections. To impose the city rf Regina tax base upon lands used solely for agricultural purposes especially under the present chaotic farm economic condition, would in short order amount to nothing less than confiscation," they claimed. The prooosed annexation covers an fere a far beyond the realm of reason and common sense especially when considered in re-laticnshm to the present area of the citv," they felt RESOLUTION In their resolution to the municipal council, they urged their representative bodv to vigorously oppose the application for annexation by the dty of Regina with every means at your disposal on the understanding that we will not oooose annexation of certain soecific lands from time to time provided these are actually required for growth and development and that they will definitely be developed within a reasonable time."

Making a general aopeal to "worthwhile forces" in the province to raliv behind the Scouting movement in its efforts to reach the provinces 72,792 boys of Scouting age, he pointed out that Scouts and servi'-e clubs could assist one another. MAGIC Scouting is a magic Ingredient, which placed in the hand of wise and skillful leaders brings from the heart and life of a boy things he doesnt know are there. What boys receive from scouting, they yield back in community service," Mr. Stark told Ki"anians. The association, he continued, wants to be a partner of Kiwanis Clubs in helping to meet youth needs In the community. In the province's riding tide of bovhood, there will be bovs who will become civic leaders, and perhaps prime ministers or leaders controlling the destiny of nations. There might e'so be a John Dillinger or an A1 Capone among them, We can't afford to lose even One of these bovs this wav, he added, urging Kiwanians to set a rareful example to the boys who look to them as a pattern.
