Peter Pin. a technician specializing in Oriental floral arrangements, held three demonstrations Friday after- noon explaining and showing that a flower arrangement is the creation of a pictorial composition. He used both fresh cut flowers from the numerous flower beds and greenhouses on the spacious horticultural centre grounds five miles east of Brooks and dried flower materials and foliages. Mr. Pih said there are almost no rules that might be obeyed by flower arrangers but there are some principles of good design. He spelled out several prin- ciples as guides to be used with an arranger's own taste and self confidence. Proportion plays an impor- tant role in flower arranging, with the height of the con- tainer the guide. Mr. Pih said the flower height should be about one half to two times as high as the vase and times the average diameter of the bowl Balance is another prin- ciple. Symetrical or formal balance is relatively easy to get by making all parts equal while assymetrical balance, Hank Tarns, owner manager of Vantas Economy Meats, now has two shops.

Mr. Pih said contrast of tex- ture, color and form, or all three in one arrangement is desireable to avoid monotony. Harmony and unity are always the final goal in arranging flowers, he said. It is a result of making a skillful selection of plant materials, containers, accessories and setting so that they appear to belong together. "If all these elements have been effectively blended, the outcome will constitute a har- monious he said There are now three kinds of flower arrangements recognized by flower show judges and exhibitors. They include mass arrangement, line arrangement and a com- bination of both. Mass arrangement involves a three demensional composi- tion of height, width and depth. In this arrangement, large bloom and deep color flowers are usually con- centrated at the centre with fine flowers or foliage and pale colors usf u to outline the basic shape of the design. Line arrangements all con- tain a triangle shape. The tallest line represents heaven, facing and looking to heaven is man and looking to both is earth, he said. True Oriental designs of line arrangements follow a formula to determine the length ot each line of the triangle. In the line-mass arrangement, there are no rules about proportion for the line section Mr. Pih said fresh flowers and materials should be gathered when the weather is cool to avoid loss of moisture. If the weather is warm, spray the leaves and blossoms with water to offset rapid evapora- tion and place them in deep water as soon as possible. Immediately before placing the flowers in water, make a fresh cut across the stem while immersed to make sure water tills the stems. They should be kept in this position for at least an hour. Woody stems should be crushed! slit or peeled one inch from the bottom before being placed in water to harden. Mr Pih said dahlia, zinnia and pomsettias will draw water into the stems better if 1'2 inches of the stem is held in boiling water for a couple of minutes. Once they begin to draw water, cut off the boiled sections. To keep flowers fresh, always have water in flower container before beginning an arrangement, don't place the arrangement in a draft and make sure containers and holders are clean. M Pih said an effective flower arrange- ment doesn't require exotic plant materials. The simpler the better Vegetable marketing board to be announced Tuesday BROOKS The seven members of the first Alberta Fresh Vegetable Marketing Board have been selected and will be made public by Alberta Agriculture Minister Hugh Horner Tuesday. Clark Ferries of Edmonton, secretary of the Alberta Marketing Council, told The Herald in a telephone inter- view from Brooks Friday the final selections have been made and final details will be approved by Dr. Horner Tuesday Alberta fresh vegetable producers, those growing vegetables for the fresh market as opposed to process- ed vegetable producers who grow product to be canned or frozen, voted in the marketing board concept July 23 follow- ing months of hearings and public meetings across the province to discuss the change. The growers had been con- trolled in their vegetable marketing by a fresh vegetable commission, but this proved unsatisfactory due to a lack of power to set proper controls The Alberta Fresh Vegetable Growers Associa- tion July 26 recommended several persons to sit on the board, including alternates.

Mr. Ferries said not all per- sons recommended for the marketing board could afford sufficient time to do justice to the job Tom Krahn. head of hor- ticultural crop development at the Alberta Horticultural Research Center here, welcomed the news of the pending confirmation of marketing board members. He said during a break in the centre's 12th annual field day Friday that a marketing board for the fresh vegetable industry in Alberta is "a step in the right direction He said the marketing board is the only vehicle un- der present provincial legisla- tion that will help to solve the wholesale pricing problems facing farmers in the in- dustry. Voluntary organization, such as the Alberta Fresh Vegetable Commission, just hasn't worked in Alberta, he said. He blamed a lack of power within the commission which didn't allow the body to set minimum prices for vegetables on the wholesale market for the downfall of the organization. Mr. Krahn said a working marketing board under proper management will provide en- couragement to the fresh vegetable industry and will mean an expansion in both number of farmers and acres And in this move, more pressure will be brought to bear on the horticultural centre to provide the exper- tise for the new growers ex- pected to enter the industry. Mr Krahn said not only will more research have to be done at the centre, but the emphasis on research will have to be shifted While the centre personnel have always been involved with spreading knowledge about the vegetable industrv to farmers and trying to solve problems, much of the work at Brooks has dealt with testing different varieties of vegetables to find the ones best suited to Southern Alber- ta With an expansion in the in- dustry. Mr Krahn expects the centre will have to move to more research on production methods, fertilizer and her- bicide application, when to seed and harvest and use of precision planting equipment. He feels the centre staff will have to work more like agricultural fieldmen also, giving day-to-day information to growers. He said the education of the public, especially the growers, will fall on the shoulders of the centre, the marketing board and the growers association Seminar set A seminar on air survival, rescue, general aviation and flight procedure has been scheduled for the Kate Andrews Building at the L e t h b r i d k e Community College Wednesday at 7 a.m. The session will be con- ducted by the ministry of tran- sport's 440 Rescue Squadron.

Trickle irrigation shown at Brooks By RFC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer BROOKS Trickle irrigation the newest water- ing system in Alberta, was un- veiled to 1.400 visitors to the 12th annual Alberta Hor- ticultural Research Center field day here Friday Larry Speiss. irrigation specialist with the Alberla department of agriculture in Lethbridge, said the research project at Brooks has been go- ing for only three years. Trickle irrigation involves utilization ot clean water running through a variety of plastic pipes on top or buried in the ground to deposit a regulatea amount of water on a limited space. It differs from sprinkler and flood irrigation systems which both require much larger amounts of wator mainly in the water control aspect Mr Speiss said trickle irrigation was developed in Israel during the 1950s and was introduced to the United States in 1969 Two separate test sites are being used at the horticultural centre, one to test the system on saline soils using shrubs, trees, fruit trees and raspberry plants. The other site involves cucumbers. PENNER'S PLUMBING Specializing m service Work. Waier Heaters and Basement Plumbing 1209-2nd Ave. S. Phone 327-4121 tomatoes carrots and strawberries, tested with four different types of trickle irrigation equipment A special adaptation oi trickle irrigation that allows six separate busht-s or trees in a cluster to be watered at one time was also demonstrated Mr. Speiss said the mam ad- vantage to tncKle irrigation is the complete control of water application which helps to in- crease yields in some crops Water use efficiency is in- creased because there is vir- tually no evaporation The .site with four ditlerent systems is simply a test of those systems But the site with 42 varieties of trees, shrubs, fru.t trees and raspberry plants will hopefully give data regarding survival rates of the plants in salt-affected soils that are well watered. Dryland salinity is a grow- ing problem in Alberta. It is caused by subsoil water movement which salt to the surface of the land in low spots Mr Speiss said the principle behind watering the saline land with trickle irrigation systems is to dilute the salt in the immediate area of the plant's root zone. Since the project, involving five plants of each variety, was started this spring, no data will be available for some time. MOVING? FOX DENTURE CLINIC ES' 1Sa2 PHONE 327-6565 E. S. P. FOX, C.D.M.
