Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 15, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 50-Bed Hospital L For Clareskolm CLAKESHOLM (Special) Formal approval has been given lor a 50-bed active treatment hospital for Claresholm by Healtli Minister J. D. Henderson, according to Don Gaudette, chairman of the Clares- holm Municipal Hospital Board. Cost is estimated at with tender call expected to go out late this fall, or early winter. The plans include expansion of the new building by another 20 beds when the need arises. It is to be located immediately south of the present old, 39-becl hospital which is In be disposed of when the new structure is completed. Mr. Gaudette said the location of the new hos- pital is a real breakthrough in efficiency of opera- tions. "Because we will be adjacent to the Alberta Hospital, we will be able to utilize the laundry, heat, water and dietray facilities of the Alberta Hospital. The two buildings will be connected by a tunnel." The main nurses residence of the old hospital will be retained. Mr. Gaudette said there's some finalization required for the plans before tenders will be called. There's to be air conditioning throughout most of the new structure.

A. HOLOWACH P. B. HOWARD Minister Deputy Minister Tour Research Project TABER (HKS) Research and practical work being con- ducted by Canadian Sugar Fac- tories Ltd. in the Taber area was viewed in some detail by the board of directors of Al- berta Sugar Beet Growers As- sociation. At a dinner meeting prior to :he farm tour, company gen- eral agriculturist John W. HaU of Lethbridge outlined1 the re- search programs developed by .he company in co-operation vith Manitoba Sugar Company and the Lethbridge Research "ration. Mr. Hall spoke of re- earch in developing improved eed strains, in insecticides and lerbicides and in soils and fer- itizer work. He said that membership in he Beet Sugar Development 'cundation of Canada and Jniteci States has been benefi- ial in research work here and other places where research lagging behind local accom- lishments. ARM EQUIPMENT At the company's farm lops, supervisor of agricul- tural research Dr. Peter vantage of deep plowing to place the fertilizer in continu- ously wet soil where it is more available to plants. Spring work includes scrap- tag off the ridge tops and power incorporation of insecti- cides and-or herbicides, along with precision planting of beet seed in the exposed moist soil hi a single operation. Visitors had a look at spray Bergen explained the develop- ment and use of several pieces of farm equipment used in jlot tests and commercial pro- duction of beets. Machinery used in UK fall preparation of soil was explain- equipment used in herbicide and other tests, allowing for variation of quantities and ma- terials in any of the four rows being treated this equipment using gas pressure rather than pumps, is a local development. A two row beater scalper for removal of tops on experi- mental plots, biu'lt on the farm, was also an item of interest to the growers' executive. ISOLATION BREEDING First field stop was at the plant breeding area where some isolation cages of porous material are used for selective production of new varieties of beet seed. Seed produced from pairs of plants is grown in greenhouse and test plots and those with the most favorable character- istics retained. Two plots This field crop, planted at three to four inch spacing on corrugated land, had received a once over thinning weeding leaving about 120 per cent stand (120 beets in 100 Herbicide had been power in- corporated at the time of seed- ing, and an excellent crop is in prospect. Thinning was delay- ed to allow early weed growth for better control. Here again Dr. Bergen stressed the value of deep plowing to place fertilizer well from tu-o previous meetings for vacation ural other personal reasons. Lewis Pollard has akcn Taber's town council to ask for taking action on mov- ng the cenotaph lo Confcdera- ion Park with less than a full jcuncil in attendance.

Phono 327-3148 demonstrating rates of planting were inspect- ed. In the lirst, seeds were planted at six inch spacing, with no thinning and a single weeding. In the second, beets were planted at three inch spacing, and hand thinning and weeding in a single operation was required. These plots demonstrated the possibility of hand labor re- duction with precision planting and maximum germination to produce the optimum number of plants for high tonnage yields. WEED CONTROL Experiments in weed control by herbicides involved 16 test plots replicated eight times each plot ol four'rows being 60 feet long. Here combinations of various herbicides available were used for the control of annual weeds including kochia, ragweed, showed that the movement of fertilizer in the soil is upward with soil moisture, rather than downward 03' leeching as is commonly supposed. VARIETY AND STRAIN Research agronomist John Ewanek discussed the variety ana' strain plots, winch includ- ed some 450 different combina- tions of seed variety and fer- tilizer application with nitro- gen and phosphorus the vari- ables. The test plots were repli- cated from four to 10 times de- pending on possible favorable results, and similar tests are conducted throughout the beet growing area to compare soil types, farm practices, liquid versus granular fertilizers, fall and spring application, side dressing, etc. Hand labor was used. ROOT MAGGOT Field demonstrations at Cranford where outbreaks of root maggot are being success- fully controlled by the use of Tritra'on (about 70 per cent ef- fective) and an unregistered product Furadan. The com- pany is looking toward regis- tration of Furadan to allow its legal use on sugar beet crops. Discussions brought out the fact that there has been no oul- the need for a "green strip" up town. Mr. Pollard said that larger centres are now purchasing high price land in business areas to provide some greenery and beauty, and that Taber should not be caught in the same condition. "We're getting so damned culturally minded, and all con- (red north of the countered Mr. Malinsky, who noted that there is nothing on the south side for residents there.

Planting was at six inch spac- ing, and no supplemental hand labor was used so that evalua- tion with hand weeded crops could be properly made. Indications are that a combi- nation of herbicides power in- corporated in the soil at the time of planting, produced a cleaner crop than a test plot twice liancl weeded. Where herbicides used were inadequate to control weeds some were ineffective on koch- ia the profuse growth of weeds left the field looking quite ragged.
