High boots or leggings over the trouser legs for those who work in Infested areas will be found to pre- Z many of the ticks from reach- the body. Ticks coTrmonly crawl j upward on the clothing and fre- I quendy reach the back of the neck even when protective clothing is j worn. It is customary for them :o move abous for some time on Jie clothing and body before start- ing to feed. Careful Inspection If a tick is infected with spotted fever it usually reouires an initial feeding period of several hours be- fore the infection is transmitted to the numaa. host. For this reason careful inspection after short pe- riods of exposure or twice daily, at nooa and on retiring, will largely avoid the danger of this disease. If a tick is found attached to the body it should be removed im- mediately. Crushing or handling ticks should be avoided as Boosted protection during this period.

Skies were gray with dusc which sifted into houses and office build- ings during the afternoon. House- wives who had done therr spring house cleaning were dismayed as they faced the prospect of repeat- ing the job. Ut41e Beet Loss Likely Frank Taylor, of .Raymond, assist- ant manager of Canadian Sugar Factories. Ltd.. said the full story of the storm would not be known for a few days. However, he does KOS think extensive damage to planted bees fields occurred. "We may have had a few acres blown out" and some beets may been covered up. but f do not anticipate serious loss. Soil has not drifted badly this season in the irrigated sections in the Raymond district." said Mr. Taylor. Drifting was not aact at Raymond Friday.

He said it would be extremely critical right now if another severe wind occurs as many fields are right on the verge of blowing, and some are moving. In Edmonton Area The Edmonton area was swept by winds that reached a velocity of 33 miles an hour with gusts 01 64 miles, but caused only minor dam- ages to the city and surrounding district. The winds, accompanied by black cloudy skies, disrupted electric light service in several parts of the city, ripped signs from their moorings and littered the streets with dust and paper. Lacombe was the hardest hit when the gales sweeping from the couth nit the district with a 50- mile-an-hour gale tearing telephone and telegraph poles to the ground, cutting off communications with the city for several hours. Repair men all cay returning service to areas cus off by the heavy winds. In Clive and Tees, east of la- combe, the winds toppled poles and the heavy duss gave the towns a black-out aspect.
