Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 30, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE itTHBRIDGE HtRALD Wednesday, August 30, 1972----- Peigaiis are g closed for two Liberals wait for Erickseu The I.ethririclge Federal Lib oral Association is wailing unti association president S v e n Ericksen returns from holidays next week before setting a date Rural area Mosquito population rising Ily GREG MclNTVKK Hcrnlil Slaff Writer Mosquitoes in rural southern Alberta will lie more nuiner- ous in Die next few weeks thnn they've hecn all year, predicts Joe Shemanchuk, ex- at thu Lclhliridge llc- search Station. Eighty degree temperatures raid the availability of water spilled Irom irrigation current- ly allows the jxwky critter to grow from egg to ailult in about seven days. In cooler temperatures It lakes up to 20 days for a mos- quito to reach adulthood, he said in an interview. Before Irrigation, there were virtually no mosqmoles in southern Alberta, said Mr. Shemanchuk, who is conduct- ing a five-year study of ways to control mosquitoes in irri- gated area. The nrea was naturally very dry and any water that landcc on the ground was quickly eva porated hy the wind, lie said Mosquitoes breed among vcg elation in still water in places like drainage ditches and dentations in the ground. Without effective control forts, mosquitoes locally con- stitute a ".severe he said. Mosquitoes on, Calgary, Lcthbrldgc mid. borne other centres. In liCthbridge and a miles surrounding the city, the insecticide Malalhlon, some- times combined with fuel oil, is sprayed on bodies of stilt iVatcr. Calgary and Kdmonton spray insecticide impregnated clay pellets from airplanes. Mr. Shemanchuk declared :hal properly conducted sway- ing can lie done without harm .0 the environment. Following a public outcry about the dan- gers of DDT about five "years ago, improved spraying tech- niques were developed, lie said. DDT was replaced with Hie chemical Malnthion which breaks down into relatively harmless substances a short time after use. The Alljerta Mosquito Control Committee was set up In th4 Jcpartmonl of the environment ibout. two years It 1ms ud- vised about improved control methods and pressed for IhJ use of better techniques, said. Recently mosquito control wograms have consisted mapping out breeding ahead of spraying, eliminating wherever possible of still hod- of water, application of chemicals when young mosqui- toes hatch from eggs and care- ful avoidance of treating water Iliat does not contain mosquita larvae. "You have to realize that na control program can 100 per cent eliminate said the scientist, "but with effective program carried out in Lethhridfjc in the last fen years, mosquitoes have been "light." FROM SHOULDER TO SHOULDER Darius Enlz, holds o huge cucumber grown by his father Jacob E. Entz of tho New Elm Hulterilo Colony, south of Magrath. The cucumber is a foot long and Three inches thick. It is a straight eight variety and Mr. Entz feels it would have grown even bigger if "the youngslers hadn't gotten into the cucumber patch and picked il." It more than IVt pounds. Volunteers sought to assist refugees irritate humans ami animals. Livestock lose weight fighting them. Mosqui- toes are a potential carrier of disease. And infants frequently swell up from biles. People in the country where mosquito control programs are not conducted can combat them with screen windows, repellents and spraying of buildings and vegetation.

However, his concern is for those stranded persons, cspec- "Hy during the winter, who are accompanied by children. The Indian affairs hranch In Lethbridge provider! him with a night's lodging and accom- modation but no transportation. An TAR official said a trans- inrtation service was once of- fered but due to abuses hy drunks the service was cut off. Evidently the incidence of .ravel assistance abuse greatly outnumbered the times it was legitimately needed. Tho city's branch of the Sal- va'.ion Army does what it can hut is hamstrung by a limited annual budget. The Sally Ann reserves most of its assistance for native peo- ple until the winter when the nccommodalion situation In- comes a matter of life and death for the transients.

Many city overnight places refuse to accommodate any na- tive person with tiie smell of alcohol on his from one drink or many. They have encountered much diffi- culty and domage from ram- paging dninks and aren't wil- ling to risk the comfort of other overnight patrons. Even the Lethhridgc friend- ship Centre which provides day time shelter and sandwich breakfasts can't help. At pres- ent it does not have a program to directly help the stranded other than as a referral agency. Mickey hopes that one or all )f the groups combined includ- jif! tiie city, launches a proj- ect to get an overnight drop-in entre and a half-way house.
