Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 27, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 TH( UTHBRIDGE HERALD Thuriday, August 27, 1970 TMTTLESPLATZ! For a moment we lliought that Dr. J. Donovan Ross, Alberta's minister of lands and forests, had wilted over the loaded gun issue. But, no such luck. The 1970 hunting regulations say: It is unlawful to carry or have a loaded firearm in or on any kind of a vehicle. (No live ammunition can be carried in the breech, or For a few moments we thought that in referring to the breech, the regulations actually meant the magazine of the gun. A check with Fish and Wildlife Officer Charles Daugh- erty brought confirmation of what we were afraid of. The breech is the back end. of UK barrel where the shell is inserted. From the breech to the point is called the barrel. Another term sometimes... used is the which includes the barrel and the breech. Tliis means that you can carry all the shells you want in the magazine of the gun while you are in any kind of vehicle. Tliis will really simplify matters for hunter training in- structors as to what an empty gun is; what a safe gun is. A cardinal rule in gun safety instruction is to open the action the moment you pick up, or are handed a gun. With most modern day rifles, the moment you open an action with shells in the magazine, a shell has been picked up and is ready for insertion into the chamber. Home accidents with guns will increase accordingly. There'll always be someone who will forget to unload after gelling home from a hunting trip. One argument Dr. Ross uses is that it is hard to legislate safety. Is that why We have speed limits on our highways and pay police officers to enforce them? THE JEE11V CAHOON MEMORIAL TROPHY SHOOT will be held this weekend on the Herman Linder Ranch south of Cardston. The weekend starts with a ham and bacon shoot on Saturday at 2 p.m., continuing until dark. Sunday morning (no time mentioned in the release) Event 1, will be 50 birds, 16-yard targets. Event 2, will be 25 handicap targets and Events, will be doubles, open to all shooters. Lunch will be available on the grounds. AT LAST WEEKEND'S registered trap shoot at the Lethbridge Trap Club, Ken Kotkas of Barons took the class A, event with 99 out of 100. Class B went to Darrell Albiton of Lethbridge 97-100. Alex Arias took Class C, 97-100. In lire short yardage handicap, Russ Erickson of Pincher Creek shot a 25 straight io win a shoot-off against Ales 'Arias, Art Pennington and Mick Anderson. Initially they all came in with 93-100. The long yardage winner was Ken Kotkas with 88-100. Ed Mantler of Lethbridge took the doubles 45-50. Ken Kotkas was the high over-all winner, winning a 30-bird shoot-off against Ed Mantler 26-25. The two had each come in with a total of 231 in three events. Mary Woo of Lethbridge took the ladies high over-all with 92-100 in singles, 85-100 in the handicap, far a total of 177-200. RECENT STUDIES conducted by scientists with the Fisheries Research Board of Canada suggest figh exposed to sub-lethal amounts of DDT may be experiencing adapta- bility problems. When brook trout were subjected to such minute DDT doses as .005 to .05 parts per milion, the fishes' ability to learn decreased sharply. The learning potential loss was demonstrated clearly with water biologists call the propeller-tail reflex. Fish respond normally to mild electric shock stimulation of the stomach region beneath the gills with a whirling, propeller-like tail motion. The reaction is conditioned reflex: much like a knee-jerk caused by the tap from a doctor's hammer. Canadian scientists trained non-DDT exposed fish to associate the shock with a light suddenly turned on in a dark room. After some 35 trials, tails whirled into motion without shock stimulus when the light was turned on. Not so, however, with the DDT bunch, which in the words of one scientist, "were pretty dumb." Most proved unable to associate the light with the shock and the propeller move- ment was consequently non-existent. Those few which man- aged to catch on required 70-SO trials. Just how critical a retarded learning potential is was proved in predator-prey relationships using trout (as preda- tors) and Atlantic salmon parr. Parr not exposed to in- secticide compounds had little difficulty learning the location of a sanctuary in the middle of a pool. But according to Dr. J. M. Anderson (who conducted the experiment) parr treated specifically rath organophosphates proved "very much more susceptible to a predator." Exactly how much DDT fish in Canadian waters are forced to live with is not known. In the opinion of one federal water quality administration official we are in bad need of an effective DDT monitoring system. What little we do have to look to is a BSFW (U.S.A.) pesticide study revealing DDT in 584 of 590 samples of fish taken from 45 rivers and lakes across the U.S. Just how many fish in these and other areas are not making it because of a DDT sapped-IQ is something we're not likely to discover soon.

Tonight, Ottawa Rough Riders are counting heavily on quarter- back Gary Wood in their inter- locking game with British Col- umbia Lions at Vancouver. After six years of riding the bench in the National Football League, Wood is playing No. 1 and liking it with Ottawa. The Bombers trailed Toronto by one point until the final min- ute of the game when Wally Ga- bler hit Ken Nielsen with a 40- yard touchdown pass. Bob Hou- mard, Winnipeg's tough full- back, got the other three touch- downs and Gene Lakusiak fin ished 4-4 on the converts.
