Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, December 27, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 21 Mountain national parks open snowmobile trails this winter Researcher testing new hay handlers Live trap Bill Michalsky of Lundbreck inspects a live trap used to capture animals without harming them. The logs near his head are on a pivot and when the trap is sprung they fall, closing the entrance. The metal straps around the ends of the logs discourage a trapped animal from chewing its way out. The trap is in the forest at the upper reaches of the Old Man River. Modular house plant to open in April South In short Improvement plan withdrawn CRANBROOK (Special) City council has withdrawn its program for water and sewer improvements in Little Van Home, Wattsville and Innes Avenue areas here. Council has decided if water and sewer improvements are wanted by residents of these areas, they will have to petition for them. The four city initiated local improvement money bylaws received strong opposition from "negative petitions." It represented a property owner victory over city hall by owners of modest homes, many of whom are on a fixed income. Most of the property owners have water but the city wanted to install a more modern system. Mayor Ty Colgur says the city has done all it can to per- suade home owners in the areas the improvements would benefit them. VON service coming to Nanton NANTON (Special) Betty Ellis of Cayely will offer Vic- torian Order of Nurses service to Nanton residents three days a week as required. Working with the Calgary branch, Mrs Ellis will provide the nursing service here Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Requests for service can be made by contacting the High River General Hospital. HIGH RIVER (Special) Modular housing expert Bob Me Cullough said here recent- ly that "conventional builders can no longer build affordable homes." Speaking to a luncheon meeting attended by High River, Cayley and Blackie councillors and Foothills Municipal District and Chamber of Commerce of- ficials, Mr. McCullough introduced Glenriver In- dustries. He and his associate, Harold Powell, will launch the new plant to produce factory built homes in a former air force hangar here. "The industry of factory built housing is very ex- said Mr. McCullough. "It is just in its infancy." He said conventionally built houses are too expensive for young home-buyers. Forty per cent of the cost goes for labor. Factory built homes do not use highly skilled labor. The inside work allows continuous production. Thirty per cent of the work force in the plant here will be female, he said. He predicted that next September there COLOUR OR BLACK WHITE KEEPS YOUR CAMERA LOADED JUST LEAVE YOUR FILMS FOR DEVELOPING AND PRINTING, AND RECEIVE A NEW ROLL OF FILM AT NO EXTRA CHARGE IN YOUR FINISHING ENVELOPE.

Dr. Al Robertson, an Agriculture Canada Researcher, is taking a hard look at haystacks here. He is studying the winter feeding quality of hay in the giant, hay bales being made by new machines. Dr. Robertson, a forage-use specialist at the Melfort Research Station, is compar- ing several different forage systems the large balers, mechanical stackers, standard-sized balers, silage and artificially dried nay. "One of our main concerns is the quality of the hay in the huge bales at winter feeding he says. "We want to make sure that deterioration in quality is no worse than that experienced with conven- tional methods of storing hay." In addition to the giant bales, tests are being carried out at the research station on mechanical stackers, which are also being used to some extent on western farms. They, too, were introduced to alleviate the perennial shortage of summer help. The stackers look like a forage-crop trailer. Hay is blown into them as they are pulled along the swaths by a tractor. Some operators rely on the bouncing of the trailer to settle and compact the hay, while others use mechanical means. When the trailer is full, its packed cargo is released on to the field to be collected later by a special, self loading trailer. Both devices make haying a one-man operation. Tests show that while the large bales are easily handled by mechanization from the field to storage and shed rainwater well in the field, hay must be very dry before being baled. It has been found that a bale standing in the field will soak up moisture from the ground. Additional storage space is also needed because the bales be stacked. They must be stored singly, with a space separating them. The hay stacks made by the mechanical stackers have been found to settle and com- pact after they have been placed in storage again separated from one another. The settling process often results in depressions in the "roof" which tend to collect rain and soak the hay. Most of the mountain national parks, including Waterton, will be opening their gates to snowmobilers this winter, William Turnbull, director of Parks Canada's western this week. The parks have set aside special trails for over snow vehicles and have introduced procedures for the safety of snowmobilers using the trails. "Because an oversnow vehi- cle can cause considerable damage to the environment if not operated properly, we re- quire that they remain on designated trails at all said Mr. Turnbull. Some trails are quite long and wind deep into the backcountry. Although the scenery is beautiful, a mechanical failure could en- danger a snowmobiler's life by stranding him in the icy wilderness. Park wardens suggest that snowmobilers not travel these trails alone with only one machine, that skis or snowshoes be carried to provide an alternate means of travel and that procedures for registration in each park be followed to the letter. Registering at self registration stations or with the park warden service on every trip will alert wardens when a snownjpbiler is over- due and possibly in trouble. While registering, visitors may often obtain maps, infor- mation on trail conditions, weather reports, and details on possible avalanche hazards. Following is a list of parks that permit oversnow vehicles and trails, along with some applicable regulations. WATERTON LAKES There is one trail in the park running up the Cameron Lake road, a distance of 10 miles one way. Users must register at the park gate on weekends or at the self registration station at the trail on weekdays. BANFF Trail users must fill out a permit each time they use a trail. The permits are available at self registration stations at each trailhead along with a map of the trail. Current information can be obtained by telephoning 762- 3600 in Banff. Trails available are: Brewster Creek Trail, 11 miles one way; Spray River Goat Creek Trail, 10 miles one way; Bow Lake Trail, 11 miles one way; Great Divide Trail, seven miles one way.
