Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 5, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Solurday, December 5, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Snowrnobiling growing sport HOME OF THE WEEK SAFETY ilES WITH OPERATOR The majority of reputable makes of snowmo- biles are safe, sturdy vehicles, but the machine is only as safe as the operator is safety conscious. Snowmobile drivers are responsible for the safety of their passengers, ofher snowmobilers and other people in their vicinity whether they are skiing, snow shoe- ing or tobogganing or skating, or just enjoying a quiet walk in the woods. Safe snow cruising is happy and healthful relaxation. YOUR GARDEN By Isabelle R. Young, F.R.H.S, AMARYLLIS pOR a brilliant display of color, the amaryllis is one of the most beautiful bulbous plants. I have received several inquiries recently as to why amarylh's do not bloom. These naturally flower in the winter and do not have to be forced. Some of the bulbs are specially treated for Christmas bloom- ing. These are what are known as "prepared" amaryllis and are planted around October 24, coming into bloom in approxi- mately seven and a half weeks. If you purchased an amaryl- lis bulb last year and had good success, with many eye-catch- ing blooms, but this year there doesn't seem to be any sign of Cowers be patient! You can- not expect them to bloom the same time the second year. Sometimes they are several Weeks later, even up to two months or m o r e. To produce the huge blooms and numerous stems the first season takes a great deal of strength out of a bulb and so this has to be re- plenished before flowering be- gins again. The African amaryllis flower in four to six weeks. I grew two and they were the most gorgeous sight, producing flowers over inches across. As amaryllis produce long roots they require at least six to seven inch pot, or allow one inch of margin between the outer edge of the bulb and the inside of the pot. A compost of loam, V-, sharp sand with a little dried processed manure is satisfactory Before planting, it is recommended that you soak the roots and base of the bulb in a shallow container of luke- warm water for about twelve hours. Make sure you do not get any moisture on the top of the bulb. Planting is quite simple. Af- ter fining the pot three-quar- ters full with the soil mixture set the bulb in the pot, cover- ing only the bottom or the thickest part.

Keep out of too bright a light, in a temperature of 70 to 75 degrees F. for two weeks During the first week do nol water; during the secern week keep the soil just iroisl enough by standing the pot in shallow water until it begins to show on the top of the soil. When the flower stalks are six to eight inches high bring the pot to the light in a cooler temperature and from now on give plenty of water. If you want to delay blooming, keep at a temperature of around 5C degrees F. when the first bud is beginning to open. On the other hand, if earlier blooms are desired, place the plant, in a warm situation. The blooms usually last for several weeks. After flowering, cut the flow- er stalks off close to the base and feed a complete fertilizer, but avoid too heavy watering. Keep growing vigorously and after all danger of frost is over, set the plant, pot and all, in a sheltered, semi-shaded spot in the garden, watering well. Bring in again before frost and rest in a cool, dark place, giv- ing little or no moisture. As the leaves turn yellow, cut them off. growth will usually start from late fall on, or after three months or more of stor- age. Renew part of ths top soil, fertilize, and bring plant to warmer conditions and grow as before. Mrs. E. The leaves on my philodendron, I think it is Philodendron cordalum, have been gradually getting smaller. Could you tell me what is the cause? Ans. While these plants do not require direct sunlight, the leaves tend to become smaller if growing in too dark or cool a place. A complete fertilizer may also be given once a month. All questions should be sent in wilting with self-addressed, stamped envelope to Mrs. Isabelle R. Young, 3620 Centre B St. N.W., Calgary 43. Most snowmobiles are made to carry two people the snowpilot and one passenger, along with a small amount of duffel. You'll find that the heavier you load a snowmobile, the less performance you'll get from it. Just makes sense, doesnit it? Here are some general riding tips from tlie makers of a pop- ular line of snowmobiles. When you're cruising in tho woods, watch out lor tree branches, snowcovered logs, or hidden, snow-filled depres- sions which could upset your machine. Of these, tree branches are the most likely to be encountered. Dips or holes have a way of becoming nearly invisible during the late afternoon when the light goes demanding a degree of common sense driving. Gog- gles, with replaceable lens for both flat (amber) and glare (smoke color) light conditions, are useful. Drive ahead of yourself. No need to file a flight plan or anything like that, but just make it a rule to plan ahead even if it's only 500 feet ahead! When you drive up a hill, remember you've got to come down it, too. If the hill's very steep, you should have a good plan for the trip back down. A good plan is to "tra- verse" down (or up) by mak- ing shallow "sweeps" across the face of the slope, progress- ing up or down about 30 feet with each sweep. Test snow conditions before taking off on any ride. What was true of Hie snow yesterday isn't always true today, and an overnight freeze or snowfall can bring some surprises in the way you'll drive your ma- chine. Try a few turns and stops. You'll get a better feel- ing of the trail, and you'll have more fun because you'll be more confident and compe- tent! Lower your speed in unfam- iliar territory, keeing an eye pealed for obstacles. Snow crusing is now one of the most popular of family winter sports, enjoyed by increasing thousands of Canadians each winter. Chances are that, if you've not already been intro- duced to the sport, this winter will see you trying your hand at skimming over the snow in this friendliest and most exhil- arating of wintertime family recreations. And, common sense and safe- ty consciousness make it the safest and most relaxing of winter pastimes, too!

(Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Takes most training The sport which requires the most intense training and high- est degree of conditioning is running, particularly over long distances. Medications will require prescriptions OTTAWA (CP) Medications containing the antibiotic neomy- :in are lo be placed on the list of drugs requiring prescriptions next March 1, it was announced today. Chiefly affected are throat lozenges, nasal drops and sprays, ear and eye drops and ointments and skin ointment. About 288 such preparations are' available over the counter. Dr. Jeffrey Bishop, chief of the federal drug advisory bu- reau, said action is being taken mainly because eye specialists report an incidence of 20 per cent sensitivity among persons using such preparations. The sensitivity, swelling and irritation of the eyelids and skin, appears to be chronic and progressive until the neomycin preparation is discontinued.

A tax was levied against those who refused to comply with the order. Your NEW Authorized Dealer JEEP" TRUCKS AND STATION WAGONS UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD. Cor. 3rd Ave., 3rd St. S.
