Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, APRIL Fear Labor Shortage Most South Alberta Areas Have Good Supply of Moisture THE HERALD'S CITY NEWS PAGE PAGE SEVEN Banker -Better-than-average moisture fin some southern districts bus no! widespread stubbling-in is antici- pated. A number of farmers in foothills areas, however, are plan- ning to plant wheat on stubble fields this spring, their lands hav- ing been well soaked nuh fail, win- and spring moisture. The net increase of per ani- mal in hog prices and the almost complete disappearance of feed re- serves during the long winter of heavy feeding is expected to bring on an increase of acreages sown, to feed grains and fodder crops this j vear, especially in districts having large livestock populations. The increase of the flaxseed price from to 9325 per bushel may result in flax acreages being in- creased in only a few areas of southern Alberta, in the opinion of agriculturists. Thev explain that tte general feeling of farmers favors wheat heavily over flax, de- soite the higher flaxseed price. conditions and assurances of gen- erally higher prices for their 1946 productions have given much en- couragemens to southern Alberta fanners as they accelerate their spring lield ooerations. Preparatory work is ia progress in practically every district of the south but thus far comparatively little seeding has been done, the seeded acreage at. this time being estimated at approximately several thousand acres. Greatest headway in seeding: has been made in eastern districts and for days past dozens of farmers have been drilling in seed between Taber and Medicine Hat. Majority of farmers, however, are waiting for middle of the month to start putting in their crops. Threats of a labor shortage are causing some concern to farmers in wide sections, especially in irri- gated areas where hoe crops are grown estensivelv. GOOD SEED BEDS While high winds soaked up much moisture from the top soil during the past, six weeks, agricul- turists explain that in moss., areas of southern Alberta farmlands have "a lot of moisture" and with the bustling activity seen in every re- gion farmers will have good seed beds for their crops. Official figures reveal that dur- ing the past eight montlr; south- em Alberta received 9.19 inches of precipitation, compared with the 44-year average of 8.06 inches. of the moisture soaked into the land.

The work on which tenders are being called includes virtually the entire program of such construc- tion pronosed for this year and is comprised of constructing 14.000 square yards of concrete sidewalk and lane crossings and lineal feet of curbs and gutters.

ONLY .21 OF MOISTURE RECORDED IN MARCH to Weather during the month of March was not unusual in the mat- ter of temperatures of storms, but it was somewhat outstanding for its lack of precipitation. In fact there have been only three similar months during the past 44 years when less moisture was received. Total precipitation amounted to .21 of an inch, divided into J8 of an inch of and .03 of an inch of rsin. The forty-four year average precinitation for the month of March is .90 of an inch. Precipita- tion during March, 1945, was 1.08 inches. The precipitation period, as a west-southwesterly gale services.

He served for three years as president of the sergeants' mess. Mr Watson explained it is neces- sary to have the work let out to contractors this year as city de- partments are faced with all the work they can handle this year, their program of regular mainten- ance work being increased by con- struction of sewer and water main, extensions and by installation of these services to scores of new premises.
