Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 20, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, Auguil 50, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 "S lUifi.ui tpp b> rPlIEItE WILL BE a pheasant season in Alberta lliis 1 fall! The fish and wildlife branch has set Friday, Oct. 9, es the opening date. Two key factors contribute to the assurance that lliere will be a season on pheasants and Hungarian partridge. Firstly, biologists are finding fewer birds with mercury, and those that are being found have much lower levels of mercury in comparison with last year. Secondly, the Food and Drug Directorate in Ottawa last April changed the tolerance level for mercury in game hirds from 0.1 parts per million to 0.5 parts per million, the same as for fish. When Alberta closed the season on pheasants and Hun- garian partridge last year, tests showed mercury levels in the birds ranged from 0.24 parts per million to a high of 0.79 parts per million, with the average at 0.45 parts per million, according to Bill Wishart, research biologist with the fish and wildlife branch. Wishart says that mercury added to the environment through seed treatment is relatively small, compared with natural and industrial sources. Organic mercury compounds, he says, have varying properties, but probably the most commonly used broad spectrum fungicide for seed dressing is the highly toxic and stable alkylniercury compound methyl mercury dicyandia- mide, marketed as "Panogen." As a liquid mercury, Panogen was first developed in Sweden during the 1940s and came to Alberta during the 1950s. IN SEPTEMBER, 1965 at a scientific conference held in Stockholm it was shown beyond any doubt that the use of methyl mercury in agriculture was responsible for poisoning and drastic decreases in mid bird populations in that coun- try. These mercurial compounds were then banned in Sweden. Based on the word from Sweden, a Canadian Wildlife Ser- vice team proceeded to collect wildlife specimens throughout Canada. Results of a preliminary survey were made avail- able in late March, 1909. It showed that mercury was signif- icantly concentrated in prairie seed-eating birds. It all ended with the closing of the pheasant and Hungarian partridge season last fall. However, it's possible that the season may not have been closed had the tolerance level been 0.5 parts per million as it now is, instead of the 0.1 parts per million as it was last fall. In other goodies: We are going to have a long water- fowl season this fall and winter. In Zones 5, 6 and 7 (south of Red Deer) the season on ducks and geese .opens Sept. 21 and it will remain open until Jan. 7. The upland game birds season meanwhile, opens Oct. 9, and closes Dec. 5. The bag limit for ducks calls for eight per day this fall, and they can all be mallards. Last year only six out of eight could be mallards. Pheasants limits will be three per day during October and then five per day for the re- mainder of the season. For Hungarians and sharptails it will be 10 per day and 30 possession limits. ALLEN BILL, writing in the Calgary says he has a strong suspicion that the longer waterfowl season for south Albertans is due almost entirely to the efforts of Dr. S. B. Smith, director of fish and wildlife for the province. Smith has long contended that Albertans are getting the short end of the stick opposite U.S. hunters by cutting short our season when hundreds of thousands of mallards are still in this part of the country. For the die-hard duck hunters therefore, it should be a great year. Ducks Unlimited reports indicate good concen- trations of birds, and southern Alberta's irrigation reservoirs should be well stocked this fall if the dry spell continues. There appears to be considerable clarification this year as to how old you have to be before you can hunt. The regulations say: A person who has not attained his 14th birthday shall not, neither directly, nor indirectly, apply for, or in any way obtain or have in his possession a hunting licence or permit. A person, who has not attained his 16th birthday shall not hunt unless: (a) he is the holder of a licence authorizing him to do so where a licence is required by this Act or regulations, and (b) he is accompanied by his parent or legal guardian or by a person 21 years of age or over who is authorized in writing by the parent or legal guardian. The Lethbridge Trap Club will hold its regular monthly registered shoot Sunday starting at 10 a.m. The Taber Fish and Game Association's new fish pond project will open Sunday at 1 p.m. The pond is located west of Taber on the provincial park road at the old strip mine site. Should have guessed It. The provincial government has delayed the start of construction on the new provincial fish hatchery in Calgary to at least next year. Bews Leading Action has been completed in eight rodeos thus far this year and all individual leaders have a comfortable margin in the Southern Alberta Rodeo pir- cuit. In the most recent standings in the southern circuit Tom Bews of Longview, Alta. is en- joying the lead in all-round as well as saddle bronc. Bews has accumulated 378 points in all-round while in sad- dle bronc he has come up with 330. John Holman of Kaycee, Wyoming is second in saddle bronc wilh 202 points. Malcolm Jones of Lethbridge leads the bareback honors with 407 points well ahead of Allan Thorpe of Edmonton who has earned 285. In brahma bull rid- ing the leader is Dale Fuhri- man of Taylor, B.C. with 316 points. John Dodds of Ponoka is next with 202. Joe Lawrence 'is 128 points ahead in calf roping. He has earned 248 points while Buz Peth of Bow, Washington has 120. Lawrence makes his home in Dublin, Texas. Arnold Haraga, of Skiff, lops the steer wrestlers with 364 points, Walter Linderman of Belfrey, Mont, is a distant sec- ond at 120.

Norcrest earned the berth in the final by edging past Wind- sor, Ont. 1-0 in the sudden- death s e m i-final Wednesday evening. "Our hiQess wonders did it said a jubilant and still shaky coach Jim Sz'jcs, Thurs- day morning via telephone from the site of the Canadian championships. "Now we've got a continued Szucs. The coach was referring, of course, to tonight's encounter with Valleyficld, Que. Norcrest must, defeat the un- beaten Valleyfield squad twice if they hope to win the Cana- dian championship as the Que- becers went through the first two games without a loss to win the "A" section of the championship. Lethbridge, on the other than, lost their open- ing game 4-0 to Windsor but since have sidelined Trail, B.C. 2-1 and then ousted Windsor Wednesday. "When I said we had a chance, I meant the coach added, "but don't get me wrong, I know Valleyfield will be tough." Szucs was bubbling over with enthusiasm this morning. The kids have been fielding he said, "you would have to see it to believe it." The coach pointed out that there were three tremendous catches in the sixth inning alone. With Norcrest leading 1-0 going into the bottom of the sixth inning winning pitcher Brian Robinson was rapped hard but three outstanding catches by second baseman Gordon Keith, leftfielder Scott Jarvie and shortstop Earl Ingarfield ended the only hopes Windsor hatt and Norcrest were in the final. The catch by Ingar- field, to end the game, was a pop foul back of third which the shortstop caught on the dead run. Lethbridge's only run came in the first inning when Robin- son raced home on a double- error to Windsor's shortstop and left fielder respectively. Jarvie, who shone in the game against Trail managed the only hit for Norcrest, a sin- gle that started the winning run. On the other hand, Robinson gave up only two hits in going the distance. He allowed only three other base runners while throwing just 67 pitches. The loss went to Vince Zue- cett, who besides only giving up one hit struck out nine. Robinson recorded eight strike- outs. It's do-or-die tonight for Nor- crest. According to the coaches Vancouver Hires Robsoii NEW WESTMINSTER (CP) Radio station CKNW an- nounced Tuesday that sports- caster Jim Robson will join the staff of the station and will handle play-by-play broadcasts of Vancouver Canucks' Nation- al Hockey League games. they'll play one game at a time. Szucs thought he might come right back with Jarvie in to- night's game and would have Robinson ready to go Friday. Robinson had a sore arm the first two games but has found some unexpected help in keep- ing his arm limber. The boys are billeted in private homes and as Szucs put it, "the man of the house where Robinson is staying h a s been working on his arm day and night." The winner of the Norcrest- Valleyfield final will advance to the World Series of Little League at Wiliiamsport, Perm. Aug. 24-29. Semi-Finals For Native Sons Playing coach Dave Smith of the Lethbridge Native Sons in- formed The Herald that the Al- berta Junior Lacrosse League semi-finals between the Sons and the Edmonton North Glen- ora Blues will be run off this weekend in Lethbridge. Meanwhile the Lethbridge Juvenile Lancers who were all set to travel to Nanton for the Juvenile playoffs found out their game is cancelled for Fri- day but will stage the first game Sunday afternoon start- ing at in Lethbridge. The Native Sons will face the Blues Saturday night at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m., with the winner of the two game total series meeting the West Ed- monton Larks for the Alberta championships. Edmonton eliminated the Calgary Trojans in a best of two total goal series edging the Trojans 14-12. During the year the league periods are not stop time until there are only five minutes of the game left. This weekend all the games will be stop time. The Lethbridge Native Sons for a first year club played good lacrosse during Hie latter part of the season allowing them to grab the playoff spot. 'Out of the five team league the locals picked up fourth spot with nine points, four better than the last plase Shamrocks. On the individual scene Dave Smith was tops with 33 goals Princeton Officials At Taber A meeting has been arranged for Monday evening in the Taber Civic Centre for those interested in meeting and talk- ing with Mr. Jonathan Johnson and Mr. Jim Joplin of Prince- ton University.

Grain is most preva- lent in the-south, on Ber- muda grass greens and along the seashore. Here are a couple of ways of detecting'grain. dead grass The cutting tool will sever roots of grainy grass on one side since they're growing at an angle. This grass will die, so if you, detect browned grass on one side, the grain will be going in that direction Get the sun behind youf back and take a look along fire grass. If it ap- pears bright, the grain is with you. If it appear! rather dark, the grain ii against you. Take a look at the cup. Grain will usually grow, toward water. It also tends tofollpw.the sun. Putts with the .grain ton more readily whereas grain they will be held up. im HATI Mm. and seven assists for 40 points.

WHAT I I'LUBOTHEP, VER WORTH Eight Under Par Panasink Sizzled BRANTFORD. Ont. (CP) Bob Panasiuk, who couldn't go on the Canadian professional golf circuit this year because he lacked a sponsor, had a record- setting round at Brantford Golf and Country Club Wednesday. The 29-year-old Windsor, Ont., pro toured the layout in 64, eight under par, in the pro-am section of the Canadian Professional Golfers' Associa- tion tournament. The 72-hole CPGA tournament begins today with 170 Canadian pros teeing off for the Labatt's Cup and the that goes with first place. After qualifying rounds today and Friday, the low 100 and ties move to the championship rounds Saturday and Sunday. Panasiuk, who earned less than on the PGA tour last year, lost both his tournament card and sponsor. His news- paper advertisements for tour support just for the summer months brought no results. "I didn't even get one an- said Panasiuk. He says it would have cost about to go on the summer tour. He estimated that while mak- ing less than on the PGA tour in 1969, he spent about by "travelling first-class or not at all." Cassius Refused NEW ORLEANS (AP) The Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Ap- peals Wednesday refused to grant former heavyweight box- ing champion Cassius Clay a re- hearing on his conviction for failing to submit to the military draft. The ruling also denied elay's request for a rehearing before the full court. Denial of the motions for re- hearing cleared the way for an appeal to the United States Su- preme Court. He had a four-stroke lead over three others while taking the winner's share of the purse. Grouped at 68 were Gary Bowerman of To- ronto, Leon DeCaire of Button- ville, Ont., and Wilf Homenuik of Winnipeg. Fifteen golfers had even-par or better in the pro-am tourna- ment, including Jack Bissegger of St. Julie de Vei'cheres, Que., who was alone at 69. In at 70 were Al Balding of Toronto, a three-time winner of the CPGA, Frank Fowler of Cal- gary and Moe Norman of Gil- ford, Ont. The defending champion, Bob Cox Jr. of Richmond, B.C., had a 71 as did Dave Clayton and Frank Whibley, both of Toronto. Cox, who shed his sponsor at the end of last year, has been having his problems lately. "I can't honestly say what the problem was, but I shot the best golf I have in several months out there the best round, but the best golf." 1970 TOYOTA COROLLAS AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION AVAILABLE NO TRADES ''1 {'i' t I I i r i NO DOWN PAYMENT I O.A.C.
