Phono 328-8161 "The Pioneer and Leading Relall Shop in Lelhbridge" FINEST QUALITY PASTRY AND BAKERY PRODUCTS CBC films Russell By IIIDI1B Staff Writer A six-man crew from CBC Toronto wrapped up five days of filming at Waterton Lakes National Park tliis weekend. The subject? Andy Russell naturalist, author, lecturer, photographer and conservation- ist. Mr. Russell can now add "talent scout" to the long list of things he is able to do' well. Bob Hutt, the film's producer, credits him with finding one of the more talented natural ac- tors he has worked with. The actor is 13-year-old Brian Shmidt from Twin Butte. In the film he plays the part of Andy Russell in a segment that re- creates a story about Mr. Rus- sell catching a trout. Mr. Huft said young Brian had worked out well, being able to carry off a rather compli- cated scene with little direc- tion. The film, being produced for the CBC series This Land, is mostly about Andy Russell and his long relationship with the grizzly bear. Shooting was done around Mr. Russell s ranch just north of Walerton Park and in Red Rock Canyon. Mr. Hutt said the results, when edited, should produce a "very good film." It will be shown on the full CBC network, probably some- time near Cliristmas, although the scries is btill in the plan- ning stages and no dale has been set. It is one of 26 half- hour shows being produced for the series this year.

Fire destroys south grasslands Photo by Ed Finlay Wind-fanned smoke and flame hampered firefighters' efforts Ily LAHDY BENNETT Staff Writer The backfire of a pickup truck is believed to have been the cause of a fire, 11 miles northeast of Standoff Sunday afteiTicon. The fire consumed nearly four sections of grain stubble and one section of unharvested grain. Aboi't 23 persons attempted in vain lo control the blaze. It was almost extinguished twice, but each time a strong breeze and hot weather fanned it back lo life. The fire started in the cor- ner of a section of land leased from the Blood Indian Band by Curley Stewart of Cardston. Three men driving combines in the immediate area of the fire's out-break attempted lo control it by lowering the cut- ting bars of their combines and plowing over the fire result- ing in several thousand dollars damage to the machines. A wind foiled their attempts and the fire rapidly consumed a stubble field, trapping a three-ton water truck and a tractor. The dual rear wheels of the truck were burned and the ra- diator hose of the tractor burst, causing the engine lo over-heat and seize. Several attempts were made to summon the Lelhbridge fire- fighters, but city policy allows the firefighters lo leave Ihe city only to help control a fire which affects buildings. Fire trucks and fii dfighlers from Cardslon and Fort Mac- leod were on duly at the fire within a half hour of its start, but the lack of water hamper- ed Iheir operations. Each of the two pumper trucks at the fire bad a capac- ity of only 500 gallons of water and the nearest supply was more than 10 miles iwav. The fire was able to re- kindle between each trip the trucks made. The fire was finally extin- guished when an additional two iire Inicks and six men ar- rived from Raymond and Ma- gralh. Grain loss has not been de- termined, there were no in- juries and no slock was lost in the fire. Ths two pumper trucks from Magralh remained on the fire scene until shortly after 6 a.m. controlling the remnants of the fire and palrolling Ihe area to make sure Ihe fire was not able lo re-kindle.

The amount of damage and cause of the fire remains un- determined. There were no injuries or slock losses.

Shell will attempt to avoid further fish kill Dy HERB JOHNSON Wlitcr Steps are being taken by Shell Canada Ltd. to prevent a recurrence of an incident July 28 which resulted in the death of fish in Drywood Creek. Spokesmen for both Shell and the fish and wildlife divi- sion say they are not sure what caused Ihe fish kill and the re- medial measures are being un- dertaken on the basis of the- ory. Glen Myers, manager at Shell's Waterton gas plant, said it was assumed sulphur dust from the plant winch had col- lecied in the ground surround- ing Ihe plant had been worked on by bacteria in the soil. causing the ground to become acidic. The acidic condition was transferred to Diywood Creek during a heavy rainstorm when a larE? amount of run-off wa- ter entered the creek. Mr. Myers said there had been heavy rainstorms before and this particular rainfall had been a "freak situation" that would not happen often. He pointed out the plant takes precautions to prevent the spread of sulphur dust. It uses a "slating operation" thai cuts down the dust .usually as- sociated with the crushing of sulphur blocks during loading. Right now the plant is work- ing on sloping the ditches in the area lo prevent the ac- cumulation of sLagnant water and quantities of limrstoie to neutralize the soil. Both would help prevent anoth- er incident, assuming the fish kill caused by Ihe residual sulphrr dust. Dua-.e Hadford, regional fish- ery biologist with (he fish and wildlife division of the depart- ment of lands and forests, said effluent from the plant had been ruled out as a cause of the fish kill. Shell's equipmenl keeps the effluent within pollution limits and at the time of the incident the effluent was he said. He described the accident as the type of occurrence which was difficult lo predict and Senior citizens to attend Rcsidenls of Lelhbridge's se- nior citizens' homes will allend the flower and vegetable show Thursday morning, as guesls of the Horticultural Society.
