Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, APRIL 4, 1946 Scarcity Of Seed Potatoes Develops As Larger Acreage Is Planned With year's growers expand- ing their potato acreages this spring to an unprecedented extent and. more farmers and gardeners signi-1 Ivine their intention to go into ifae j crop on large scale instead of! just putting in. a Itn- rows as usual, a definite scarcity of seed potatoes belny felt in ihe district, say lo- cal agricultural officials. Prospects are inaf toe 2300 acres of potatoes seeded last spring will look like a small thing beside tbe total area, thas mil be cultivated lor spuds in a few weeks. Yet de- spite the great demand for approved aeed there are only 430 tons of this available both from government and local sources. Last year to satisfy much smaller requirements there 000 tons of seed potatoes. The local situation is being met by the department of agriculture by granting permits to farmers possess- ing disease-free Blots jo plant Uieir own potato seed. For the past six years the Alberta government has bees exercising close supervision over potato growers' operations in the district toth a view to eliminat- ing ringroi. Ccly certified founda- tion stock has been admitted into the Lethbridge growing area fors propagation on land that has found j to be uninf ected by ringrot. The I practice has been to approve for use .as seed the first crop taken oS this foundation stock which is produced on government supervised farms. Aati-Kingrot Campaign Here as elsewhere in the province the government is anxious to main- tain Its ami-nngrofc campaign- in- tact and to keep on hand an ade- quate supply of certified seed poia- loes. Two years ago the district anti-ringrot program was extended to aU the nrincipal potato produc- ing areas in Alberta. IE has been determined that a large percentage of the potatoes grown in the prov- ince are infected with nngrot, and certain farms have been prohibited from, producing this crop because ot non-compliance with regulations 10 stamp out riagrot. U.S. Potatoes for a vear now under ringrol control the Calgary district was Issued a warning recently by J. R- Boon, field man for the Alberta, de- Dartment of agriculture against the use of American potatoes for seed in one of the worst shortages of seed potatoes that district has ever known. He -warned fanners and gar- deners not to seed the American table potatoes as they might be in- fected with ringrot and thus add fresh fuel to the eDidemic of this disease which is giving the govern- ment such a bad headache at the present time. No American potatoes are coin- iBg into the local market, it is re- liably stated here, due to the fact that- the district is so large that only a small fraction Is absorbed for local consumer requirements. THE HERALD'S CITY NEWS PAGE PAGE SEVEN James A. Price Called by Death The local office of depart- ment of agriculture has just a reminder that potato planting per- mits must be obtained by growers for any potatoes planted within a pest control area for bacterial ring- rot. The seed planted must be ap- proved by officials of the depart- ment. planUng permits will not be issued after June and prospective growers are reminded to make ar- rangements for seeding parly. Veteran Guard Units at 'Hat To Be Dissolved Effective April 29, two more Vet- eran Guard companies are to be reduced to "ml" strength. For the past Uiree years doing duty in the j Medicine Hat interment numbers 26 and 35 guarding com-' panics of the Veteran Guards of Canada will at the end of April cease functioning. Some of the 300 men on duty with the two companies will be absorbed into the strengths of other companies -while the remainder will be discharged.

For this reason there exists in Montreal a central bureau for organizing- these clean-up campaigns through the local Junior Chambers of Commerce. The dates set this year for the national campaign arc from the 1st to the llth of May and are. we realize, a little late in the season for the Lethbridge district. Consequently we note with pleasure that the city is fteginning its extra rubbish removal service on the 15th. ApriL This -will give the citizens an opportunity of malting aa early start. As there is more to a clean np and beautifying drive than merely cleaning np one's own yard, we believe that our campaign of publicity beginning in May will lie of distinct use to the community and we hope all Lethbridge citizens will assist making this city the brightest spot in Canada this year. We owe this to ourselves and we owe it to the tourists who will aeain be visiting- our city'now that war restrictions are removed. Let's all pull together for a bright and shining Leth- bridge.
