Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 22, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THE LETHBRIDCE HERAID Tueldoy, Auouil 22, 1972- Fish and game a way of life for Balderson The fish and game movement in southern Alberta Lsn'L TIS ac- tive as it was according to an older statesman of the organi- zation. Fell Balderson of Magrnth, one of Uie pioneer fish nnd game members in tlic south says "iii the field of conser- vation activity particularly, the voice of fish and game isn't 3 coming through as loud as it used to. "Perhaps it Is because other organizations have moved in and arc speaking up for conser- vation; and perhaps it's he- cause the term "con.servalion" has moved into fields that are highly sophisticated.

Mr. Raldcrsrm strongly feels, however, that in no way should the anil game movement be counted out. "It still often lakes a bulldozer lo get a job done." lie came to Magralh in 1909 his parents from Iowa when he was five years old. His wife, always has the coffee at the ready whether she is gardening or looking after her huge carpel-like lawn, prefers to stay in tho background and won't even admit her name when it comes to an interview. She is n native of the Spring Coulee district. "Bumped into Ihe wrong guy when you md nays tnihby. "This is just loo nice a country and that's why you novel' got a chance to lenve it."

Fell went to school in Wc-Minrj for the eight years then took his high school in Ixjlhbridgc. "When the .silent movies ar- rived, that made a big differ- ence for the young recalls Mr. Balderson, "It was interesting. There were no elec- trical power lines in those days. There was the gasoline engine itr.d the generator. Kick over the engine and everything would purr. After awhile you would be watching the movie and all lights would go dim and the generator would slow down un- til everything was quiet and in darkness.

Numerous fish and game members became sclf- game guardians without any jurisdiction to prosecute, but with Imliativo to walch over the flocl.s. Mr. Balderson often took tho lead in feeding the birds during severe winlers. lie kecpa up this winler-Uma activity even totlny after being (old by biologists on numbcrous ions that if winter feeding is to meet with any measure of suc- cess, the operation will have to be maintained tliroug! unit the critical months. This he has (lone on his own time and nl his own expense. AL Uie same time he is one of the sotith's most ardent sportsmen. He shoots with tho best as well as with the new- come r.s. And, the talk in the field you can bet has something to do with fish and game and con- servation. And, if you get him started on the Ionic of fishing but, that's another story.

GKANT Winter Ili-ccilcr Kcscarch Station Sundance hard rtnl winter wlical was developed al the Weed control information in new booh A new issue of Ihe publica- tion ''The C'onlrol of Aquatic Plants in Alberta11 has just j LT-n rcl c.'i sc< I by tin; weed control branch of I he Alberta department of agriculture. Intended for anyone who wants lo remove weeds from a dugout, slough, pond or an area of water in front of a lake col- lage, it contains the latest herbicides which have been ap- proved for these purposes by the atjLiatic plant control com- mittee. This committee, chairetl by William Lobny of the Alberta department of agriculture, was formed in 1968 to set up and administer a program of aqua- tic plant control in tlic province. It consists of members from the provincial departments of agriculture, environment and lands nnd forests, the Univer- sity of Alberta, the Lcthbridgc research station and the agri- cultural chemical industry. fn addition lo containing the latest 3 n for ma (ion on both mechanical and chemical aqua- tic weed control, the publica- tion has a simple chart which makes it easy for anyone to calculate the pounds of active chemical required to cover spe- cific numbers of acre-feet of water. There is also a section out- lining permit requirements, ,Tn Alberta a permit must be ob- tained before any chemical can be applied to water except in the case of a private dugout or small pond or slough on pri- Vcilc land. As a general rule, treatment of aquatic vegetation in the part of a lake IhM is ad- jacent to private lake frontage is permitted up to n distance of feet from shore or (o a dtpfh fit 10 feet, whichever occur.1; lirsl, Applications for a permit to treat corridors for ho at access or a public beach aroa art- considered on their own merit. Lcthbriclgc Research Station ond licensed lor Canada in 1971, About 700 bushels of Select seed were distributed last fall lo 23 growers Jn Alberta and two In Saskatchewan. Winter survival xvas excellent, so it is expected that about bushels at pedigreed seed will be available for the 1972 fall seeding. Enquiries concerning pur- chase of seed should be directed to local seed trade agencies or to tfic original growers. A list of growers Is available from. the Canada Agriculture Re- search Station at LL'thhriclgc. Sundance was derived from A cross between Cheyenne and Kharkov 22 MC. Over several years of testing it lias been a consistently high yieldor. Agro- nomically it resembles Kharkov 22 MC but is much more re- sistant, to .shattering. In wintcr- hardincss it is superior fo Win- alta. Sundance is slightly taller than Winalta and about a cloy later in maturity. The kernels of Sundance are large and are acceptable for the Alberta Winter Wheat grades, 'flic milting and baking quality of Sundance is of the- hard red winter wheat type, similar to Winalta but slightly lower in protein content. Sundance and Winnlta are both susceptible to bunt (slink- ing so the seed should be treated with a clicrm'jnl rec- ommended for bunt control. Growers of winter wheat aro reminded also to observe tho cultural practices recommend- ed for control of Ihc virus dis- ease, wheat streak mosaic. Further Information is given In the bulletins "Winter Wheat Production in Western Canada" and "Wheat Streak Mosaic1 which arc available from district agriculturists or the Canada Agriculture Re- search Station, Lelhbrtdfje.
