Research station letter W. A. NET-SON Kntoinologist As far back as 1003, we had demonstrated at the CDA llo- search SUilion, Lethbridge, that Eheep developed an acquired resistance to Iho sheep kcd, a blood-sucking ectoparasite o( Bhccp. The process involved tho development of an allergic re- action in the skin of sheep to the feeding of the kcd. This re- action, in turn, caused a ro- duced flow of blood to tho skin, deprived tlie. Insects of their required blood meal, and caus- ed them to die of siarvation. About tho same lime, Drs. Bell and Clifford and associ- ates at the Rocky Mountain Laboratory ol the U.S. Public Health Servico In Hamilton, Montana, discovered that mico that became paralytic as a re- .suit of rabies inoculation also became very lousy and could not groom themselves. The numbers of lice In- creased rapidly hut, after reaching a blab level, they sud- denly declined just as rapidly in much the same way as tho numbers of kcds declined on sheep that had acquired resist- ance to them, The Lelhbridgc Research Sta- tion became involved in investi- gating the mouse louse in 19GB. Wo studied the reaction of the skin in lousy mico throughout the cycle of rise and decline occurred in the skin of tho mice as was found in the skin of sheep infested with kcds. Meanwhile, tho workers in Montana discovered that a cer- tain strain of mouse was high- ly susceptible to lice and did not acquire resistance to them but died of acute anemia. At Lethbridge, we have already found some differences between the skin of the susceptible mice and that of the resistant ones. At this time it suddenly oc- curred to us at Ixilhbridgc that here, in these different strains of mice, wo had the means by which we could investigate tho factors involved In resistance suscpetibility to louse infesta- tion in cattle. Mice arc cheaper than calllo and easier to work with; larger numbers can be used and tho inbred characters of the differ- ent strains show little wilhin- slrain variability. ,IOK HM.LA Herald Staff Writer Southern Allrerla's image as a game bird hunters paradise could be enhanced consider- ably. How soon this could bo brought about would depend lo a large degree on the seri- ousness with wliich the problem is tackled. This opinion Is the o! Ralph Michclson of fxjtlv bridge, long-time representa- tive for Ducks Unlimited in tba south country. In addition lo Ijctng a "Key Man" for Ducks Unlimited, Mr. Michclson is also chief of police for the city and he feels that it lake considerable persev- erance to make belter yamo bird hunting a reality. CP Rail has given strong In- dication, be suggests, thai it would like to abandon its rail line running from the Many- berries area In tho southeast- ern portion of (he province, to Ilillspring in Ihe southwestern corner of Alberta. This bo points out, that CP plans to abandon a lino thai spans the breadth of tho southern-most part of tho province. "There Is no Mr. Michelson says, "why this abandoned slrelch of railway right-of-way couldn't bo turned Into public hunting grounds." Ho notes lhat the railway re- ceived this property from the government and the pcoplo of Canada in the early days at no cost. This rigbl-of-way, plai considerable farmland was given to Ihe then-CPE because it was helping to develop tlio country. j Even If there had been a cost for the land, according to Mr. Michelson. through the years it has repaid itself many times over through freight rates for tho If the railway Is abandoning this property, "it should give Ihe land back lo the public. The potential for improving much of this property for game bird habitat is "something terrific. Wo could have better hunting and the farmer-hunter relations problem could bo improved considerably." Some of this right-of-way is suitable for tho building of dams and man-made waterfowl wetlands for rearing birds. Oth- er areas could improved by planting of shrubbery and feed crops for the birds. While providing more food for the birds, these same plants could also serve as improved habitat, Mr. Michelson feels that a "real plus faclor" from Ibo sportsman's standpoint Is tbat the right-of-ways have not been farmed or used for agricultural purposes. "When there were attempt? made to obtain Ihe right of way land for ttie old Alberta Rail- way and Irrigation Co., south o{ tho city for public hunting, there was sorno strong opposi- tion from farmers they wero already, and had been for years, fanning this land or, at least using it for some pur- pose related to agriculture. They had been squatting on tho land, and paid for or not, tho farmers felt it was their prop- erly." Where Ihe CPR right-of-way Is concerned, this land uso problem is non-cxistant, accord- ing lo Mr. Michclson. "All wo should have lo deal with is Hall, and perhaps the govern- ment. "It's a real opportunity and It could serve as a model for other parts of tho country." Tho time to movo, Mr. clson says, Is now when tho land is .standing Idle. If CP Rail Is allowed to sell any o( this righl-of-way property fore any discussion Is bold on tho question of retaining Iho property for public uso, every- thing could lie lost Third highest Accidents take the lives of about Canadian farm and niral residents annually, Injuro npproximatcly nnd per- manently disable accord- Ing to Canada Safety Council figures.
