Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 2, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Thurtdly, Jinuiry 2, 1875 in merchandise gone in three store break-ins Three Lethbridge stores were broken into on New Year's Day, Lethbridge city police say. About worth of merchandise was taken from F. W. Woolworth and Co. Ltd., 601 4th Ave. S., after the west door of the store was broken with ice. Most of the merchandise taken was from the jewelry department, although muscular dystrophy donation containers inside the store were also emptied. Quantities of airplane glue were also reported stolen. Two .22 rifles, one revolver, seven hunting knives and some Canada Winter Games coins were reported stolen from Plainsmen Sports, 327 7th St. Reserve man becomes first highway fatality CARDSTON (Staff) One and a half hours into the new year Southern Alberta record- ed its first traffic Horace Gilbert Chief Moon, 20, of the Blood Indian Reserve was killed at a.m. New Year's Day as he walked on a secondary highway on the Blood Indian Reserve about five miles west and 10 miles north of Card- ston. Mr. Chief Moon and Alberta Mary Riding At The Door, 16, also of the Blood reserve, were walking westbound when they were struck by an east- bound car driven by Marvin Braverock, 19, Of the Blood In- dian Reserve. Mr. Chief Moon was killed instantly while Miss Riding At The Door was critically in- jured. She was taken to the Cardston Hospital but was later transferred to St. Michael's hospital in Lethbridge where she is in critical condition with multi- ple injuries. There has been no decision regarding an inquest and Cardston RCMP are still investigating the accident. Milk up 11 cents Three price increases for milk in 1974 boosted the cost of a quart of homogenized product to 46 cents per quart and a futher increase of one cent is expected Jan. 19. And as of Jan. 19, the total price increase since Oct. 15, 1973 will amount to 12 cents per quart, including five cents per quart the federal govern- ment has been paying producers to keep consumer prices down. Homogenized milk prices jumped 24 per cent to 46 cents per quart Dec. from 35 cents per quart Oct. 15, 1973. The first increase in 1974 was April 15 when it rose to 39 cents per quart. On Nov. 1, the federal government started removing a five cent-per-quart con- sumer subsidy instituted a year earlier to keep the price of milk down to the consumer and up to the producer. The first stage Nov. 1 was a boost of one cent per quart realized at the consumer level. Three cents per quart were added to the consumer price Dec. 1 instead of the scheduled two cents, leaving one cent of consumer subsidy left to be removed Jan. 19. Raymond decision moves slowly Director hired Fire damage at city home About damage was reported following a fire at a South Lethbridge home New Year's Eve. The Lethbridge fire department says the fire gutted the base- ment of the home at 802 8th Ave. S. which was occupied by the Mary Chief Body family. No injuries were reported. A fire department of- ficial says .the fire is believed to have been caused by a cigarette dropped in some bed- ding. The fire started about p.m. The home is owned by Roy Overn, 648 9th St. S. and is insured. Most of the damage was to the house but the contents of two rooms were destroyed. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC S. Phone 328-4095 A decision on Alberta Am- monia Ltd.'s application to build a plant near Raymond may take some time, a spokesman for the Energy Resources Conservation Board said Tuesday. "It's a complex problem and a new board solicitor N. A. Macleod said in a telephone interview from Calgary. Staff work has been com- pleted and the matter is in the board's hands. But the board will have to formulate a policy base as well as making a decision, he said. The ERCB decision will go to the provincial cabinet for ratification before any permit may be granted, he said. Raymond Mayor Bob Graham told The Herald the town is "anxiously awaiting" the decision, but he doesn't expect it until mid-January. "It's going to have a great bearing on our he said. Mayor Graham said produc- tion of ammonia for use in fer- tilizer manufacturing is great- ly needed because of the world food shortage, but the ques- tion is whether the province has sufficient natural gas reserves to allow it. A new director of nursing has been appointed at the Raymond Municipal Hospital, it was announced today. Joan Rowinski, who has been with the hospital about a year, assumed director's duties Wednesday following the resignation last week of the former director. S., following a second break in Wednesday. Police say the weapons were discharged inside the store. Enry was gained by breaking in the front door of the store. The owner of the store was called to secure and repair the door about p.m. Tuesday. When the store was checked Wednesday after the break in at Woolworth's it was discovered the store had been entered. About in small change was also reported stolen from the cash register and the muscular dystrophy container in the store was emptied. In the third break in, Simpson Sears was entered and a sweater and a pair of winter boots worth were reported stolen. Entry was gained by break- ing a large plate glass win- dow. Police suspect juveniles are responsible for all three break ins because of the size ,of footprints found near the scenes and because it would require a small person to climb through the broken glass holes made to enter the stores. Police are stUl investigating the break ins. Oxfam drive nets The Lethbridge Oxfam com- mittee has collected more than in its drive to provide relief funds for dis- aster stricken areas of the world. Walter Schmid, local com- mittee chairman, said today donations will be received un- til April at B'ox Lethbridge. The local com- mittee was formed less than two months ago. PREDICTED SNOW THIS MONTH MAY KEEP STREETS ROUGH January may bring more snow The Lethbridge weather of- fire has good news for farmers. Above normal precipitation is expected for January. This prediction is included in the 30-day forecast but the weatherman doesn't expect it to be fulfilled in the next few days. The warm windy conditions which prevailed at the end of 1974 are expected to continue for the first few days of 1975. It is expected to be sunny to- day with temperatures 35 to 40 degrees and winds gusting to 30 miles per hour from the west. Overnight lows are an ex- pected 15 to 20 degrees. Friday is expected to be cloudy with gusty west winds and temperatures 35 to 40 degrees. The weatherman says to ex- pect changeable weather for the weekend with a wide temperature range. Any time precipitation levels go above normal is good news for the farming com- munity, considering moisture levels for the past seven years. The Lethbridge Research Station recorded 13.05 inches of precipitation in 1974. That is about three inches below the normal 16 inches and was the 7th consecutive year the total was below normal.

The greatest threat of grasshopper infestation in 10 years has been forecast for 1975. Neil Holmes, head of the crop entomological section of the Lethbridge Research Station, reports severe infestations are predicted for 2.8 million acres of Alberta farmland, up from the predicted 1.2 million acres in 1974. Moderate infestations are expected on 5.1 million acres in 1975, up from 4.5 million acres in 1974. Light infestations in 1975 are ex- pected on 9.7 million acres, the same as in 1974. The majority of the severe infestations are predicted for the Carmangay, Fort Macleod, Bow Island, Foremost, Warner and Coutts regions. Other areas in Alberta to expect some severe infestations are Empress on the Alberta-Saskatchewan border east of Calgary and Wainwright on the same border east of Red Deer. Dr. Holmes says the threat of the heavy infestation is real but spring weather will ac- tually determine the 'hopper population. Hot, dry weather as the crops are germinating will cause the grasshopper eggs to hatch early and rapidly. Cool wet weather would delay hatching. If the hatch comes early, the young 'hoppers would be able to move into the crop- when it can least stand an at- tack, says Dr. Holmes. This makes surveillance and control most important. Farmers are cautioned to start checking for 'hopper out-. breaks from early May to the end of June. Particular atten- tion should be paid to road- sides and edges of crops. Dr. Holmes says farmers can control the spread of 'hoppers w'i't'h chemical applications, it noucea ana building the car ran out of money and had to cancel plans to build it this year. But with new financing, they're almost ready to test a prototype. The three wheeled, rear engine vehicle may get up to 50 miles per gallon with a 500 cc engine, and provide "fairly brisk performance up to 70 he says. It could weigh no more than pounds, where some big cars now weigh about three tons. Three wheel cars are not well known in North America, but three wheels are used on some delivery trucks in England, he says. Proper weight distribution keeps a three wheeler stable. It uses fewer suspension components and needs less power because it has 25 per cent less rolling resistance. When the car reaches production, it won't be made on a conventional assembly line, he says. Teams of about seven peo- ple will be responsible for assembling each car, a method already used by Volvo. It will give workers greater pride in their workmanship because they will produce a finished product instead of just a small part of it. American manufacturers use the same assembly line techniques on all their products, so a subcompact may have less metal than a luxury sedan, but it takes just Man jailed until trial Big Brother volunteers overworked Volunteer workers are no longer sufficient to continue the work of the Lethbridge and District Big Brothers' Association. With 18 companionships functioning, the volunteer screening and matching com- mittee is overworked, the group's president says. There is a need for a part- time executive director, or maybe an executive director and a stenographer, says Ed McTavish, a Lethbridge physician. The national organization's figures show that beyond 15 matches, a local group needs paid help to supplement volunteer ser- vices, says the president. Big Brothers is intended to provide a male image for boys who don't have an adult man jn the family. Both big brothers and little brothers are screened and matched to provide the most effective guidance for the lit- tle brother. Dr. McTavish says the screening and matching com- mittee has to provide con- sultation for existing matches, as well as researching applicants at both A man charged Sunday with failing to comply with a court order to stay away from a Lethbridge woman from whom he is charged with stealing was remanded in custody in provincial court Tuesday for one week for elec- tion and plea. Donald J. Thibodeau, 60, New Dayton, was charged Sept. 12 with stealing from the woman. Mr. Thibodeau has been charged three times with failing to obey the condition of an un- dertaking he signed requiring him to stay away from her. In the latest incident Mr. Thibodeau was released from custody Dec. 5 after signing an undertaking to appear at his preliminary hearing for the theft charge Jan. 10. He was subsequently charg- ed for the third time Sunday. The Crown asked Mr. Thibodeau be remanded in custody. as much labor to build, he says. Mr. Tonkin, 28, attended Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute and the Lethbridge Community College before taking a transportation design course in California. He has since worked for Ford in Detroit, Mich., Skidoo in Quebec, and done freelance work. Cars will still be with us for some time, he says, because people want them. They may become more reliable and smaller, but they will not vanish. "There's a very large por- tion of the public, especially in North America, that won't settle for anything less than personal says Mr. Tonkin. In larger cities such as Toronto and Calgary, express buses are a big help, he says. Vancouver has a direct ex- press bus service to its sub- urbs which is faster than driving. Buses could also be smaller, and more numerous and more comfortable, he adds. Certified D.ntm MKhinic CLIFF BLACK, BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL BIOG.

Most people in the infestations of young 'hoppers organization are busy and will require less chemical. Respraying may be necessary if the hatch is prolonged because of the short life of chemicals used to kill the pest. Mature 'hoppers could also move into sprayed areas, resulting in the need for more spray. Holmes said this is the fifth prediction in a row to show an increase in expected 'hoppers. Only the intensity of 'hoppers in 1962 could out- shadow the 1975 threat, if it develops. ale uusy dllU can't devote full time to it, he says.
