Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 1, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta -Wednesday, December 1, 1971 THE LtTHBRIDGE HEBALD 31 Where is Ringo, the little duck? x ire both professional them on a wrest- :ymoon. She says it sounds absurd Stella Stevens for By GENE I1AXDSAKEH HOLLYWOOD (AP) Stella Stevens for president? Sounds absurd, and the curvy blonde actress is the first to admit it.

Stella thinks she has E chance of winning. "I wouldn't run if I didn't think so. It's no sillier than run- ning for movie star, which I did 11 years ago. It's a new chal- lenge in my life. If I work for it Democrats 1 think m'winit." She's never run for office. Why now? "I'm an idealist, and I think our country has fallen apart. It don't see much difference between them, the way they're behaving now." Instead, she'll run as the can- didate of the "One is a symbol of unity, of OUr COUnll V llciS liilltll djjnlu it has not become America the one God, one now, one exist- Beauiifui. After acting in perhaps two more movies, and directing one she's been writing for years, Stella said: "I'll have all my time to help mankind if possi- ble.

The Special Employment Plan: think she may have started By JOHN JENSEN Canadian I'rcss Stnff Writrr Where is Ringo the little brown female mallard duck? Some pessimists lean to- ward the theory she probably starved to death because she was unable to eat solid food since her bill was clamped shut by a carelessly-discarded pull-ring from a soft-drink can. But others, a little more op- timistic, theorize she cither pulled free of the ring herself would make her in- distinguishable from other fe- male mallards in Grenadier Pond in she joined the annual duck and geese, migration south to the Gulf coast or Atlantic sea- board to spend the winter. Her disappearance from the pond in mid-November, after 13 fruitless days of attempts by a small army of Toronto Humane Society and Ontario department of lands and for- ests officials to capture her and remove the ring, still is a mystery. But whatever her fate, one thing is least JOO million ducks and geese of all species took to wing this fall from all corners of Canada to fly a gauntlet of hunters, while on their way south to wintering grounds. NUDGED INTO AIR A Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press shows that while unseasonally fine weather occurred in most duck-hunting areas in the first half of the season, sudden cold snaps and typically late fall storms nudged ducks into the air and provided excellent shooting for hunters not dis- couraged by the earlier poor flights. Dr. Graham Cooch, migra- tory bird specialist with the Canadian Wildlife Service, Ot- tawa, said in an interview preliminary figures indicate 1971 will be a year of high kill for most hunters. "The harvest is reasonably good and the duck and geese populations were very stable we work together. There's work to be done and the Federal Government's Special Employment Plan is putting S498 million to work to helo create more jobs for Canadians. Your community can benefit by creating a project that will bring more employment and improve the community through the Local Initia- tives Program. Workers may improve their skills or learn new ones through the extended Canada Man- power Training Program. People with litlle work experience can re- ceive training because the government will assist employers financially through the Training-on- the-Job Program. For information, Canada Manpower .Centre, Canada works when Canadians get involved. Canada works Manpower and Immigration Hnin-cfoMiwre at Immigration this year, mainly because their habitats were generally even in most sections of Can- ada." He said about 100 million ducks and geese are involved in the migration south this year, slightly higher than last year's figure, but still below the 1969 record of about ]20 million birds. AVAILABLE TO HUNTERS Approximate figures .so far this fall show (hat three mil- lion Canada geese, tv.'o million snow geese and about one mil- lion other species of geese were available to hunters, provided they were in the right place nt the right time, he said. Dr. Cooch said the migra- tion pattern on the Prairies was unusual because of weather conditions. "There never really was a migration on the he said. "One day a cold front moved in and the next day the ducks ard gosse just up and left. By late October (he main flight south was over." An early cold snap north of Newfoundland brought sea ducks such as cider, scooter and skaup south three weeks early, resulting in bctter- than-average kills by hunicrs. A wildlife service spokes- man in SI. John's, N'fld., said geese appear to be on .sched- ule, but a shortage of staff had prevented his office from making a survey to determine numbers. JUMPED THE GUN Canada geese over New Brunswick appear to have jumped the gun, some arriv- ing as early as late AIIJJUM, most iiia'iy because of c'lid weather in Labrador, a CWS spokesman said in Kackvillc. Ducks r c m a i n e d hidden early in tlic hunting season because of warm weather, hut freezing rain, snow and cold snaps later in the season forced the ducks to move, providing better shooting for hunters. In Ontario, most ducks and geese arc on time in slightly highor numbers than last year, but some geese came south earlier than expected because of weather. A hinds and forests official said h'.intir.g is excelli-nt nlon'! flakes marsiie.s, LnUn Luther Marsh GO miles northwest of Toronto, and along sections of the St. Hivcr, particularly near Kingston. He said hunting in southern Ontario should remain good until about mid-December. Across the Prairies the number of gcc.-.e and ducks ot most species increased sub- stantially over last year, but total kill is expected to be lower because of the sudden migration south due to poor weather.
