Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID - Fnciuy, uucemo=r \i, n> levels of the mediocre farmer, North American agriculture is abundant, protein efficient and technologically intensive. In a time when labor constantly asks more for doing less, and thf inclination of big business is to run for shelter from government, agriculture has stood alone as a business which could compete in world markets while making a profit. "But aren't we just stooges?" Why should agriculture forever be on the outside looking in? Why can't we announce a price increase to cover our increased costs and protect our profit margins? Why can't we demand cost-of-living clauses in our contract with the nation to food and clothe it? Why should we always be "helping the nation" when the others around us are bettering their own lot at the expense of the country. There is no answer to it, of course. There never has been. Agriculture will remain fragmented, feeding off itself (watch the livestock man root for $1 corn if you don't believe it). We do what we do because we love it, or that is what we tell each other. (But we send our children to school so they can "do something better"). We do it because we feel that "farming is a worthwhile way to live," and it's true, it's nice to feel needed. So we are a mixed lot, full of doubts. We are tired of being scapegoats, unsure we are superstars and half suspect we have been stooges. The truth is, whatever our problems, we are necessary. We have earned the right to assert our importance with pride and dignity. Like amy other backbone, we won't get much attention. But the country cannot stand without us. Runciman re-elected A. M. Runciman of Aber-nethy, Sask. was re-elected president of United Grain Growers Limited by the 12-month Board of Directors. He has been president since 1961.

Reports from 4-H clubs Kuryvial named W. H. T. Mead, director of the animal industry division of the Alberta department of agriculture, has announced the appointment of Miles Kuryvial as supervisor of artificial insemination. Mr. Kuryvial replaces Bruce Jeffery who resigned recently to become manager of the Alberta Hog Producers Marketing Board. Born on a farm in the Taber area, Mr. Kuryvial completed his high school at Taber. He graduated with a B.Sc. in agriculture from the University of Alberta in 1959 and obtained his M.Sc. in animal nutrition from the same university in 1961.. stand cold increases. At the Letbbridge Research Station we are using winter wheat to study the mechanisms involved in this second or temperature-dependent phase of cold hardening. This plant does not exhibit the true dormancy that shortening days induce in many ether plants. Most chemical processes in plants are catalyzed by certain proteins called enzymes. The properties of enzyme in-vertase, which hydrblyzes sucrose, change in Kharkov winter wheat in response to decreasing temperatures. We are therefore studying invertase to discover why these changes occur. We have found that invertase in wheat consists of a group of several proteins, each of which can bydrblyze sucrose. The proportions of these different invertase proteins change in response to the temperature at which the plants are grown. Our next step will be to attempt to show that these changes in proportions cause the observed changes in properties. By studying changes that take place In individual enzyme proteins and searching for their cause we hope to discover tbe basic mechanisms involved >n cold hardening. These mechanisms probably function in many of our crop and ornamental plants. This knowledge should assist us in discovering ways to increase the variety of plants that can be grown successfully in many regions of Canada.
