Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THE lETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, January 9, 1971 Funds for irrigation expected A final decision on the proposed irrigation rehabilitat i o n cost sharing program should be received from the government in the near future, Bud Olson, federal minister of agriculture said at a conference in L e t h-bridge Friday. Mr. Olson said the federal government has authorized him to make an offer to the province, but would not disclose details. He did indicate though, the offer, if accepted, will involve a substantial sum of money. Jake Thiessen, manager of the St. Mary River Irrigation District, said at this point he is optimistic that Alberta's 13 irrigation districts will be receiving funds to aid in much heeded rehabilitation. MENTAL HEALTH DONATION - Sister Mary Clarissa Chisholm, president of the Southern Region, Canadian Mental Health A ssociation, accepts a $500 cheque from George Williams, exalted ruler of the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks, Lethbridge. The money donated by the Lethbridge Elks club, will be used by the association for rec-reation programs designed for mental patients. The presentation was made Friday._ Sign here, sign there How many signs should a building have? The Municipal Planning Commission apparently is not sure, but feels 17 is a bit excessive. The commission Wednesday tabled an application from National Neon Displays to put two more signs on a local business that already has a grand total of 15 on the building or standing on the lot. Kirk's Tire Sales is to be asked if they would consider consolidating some of the existing signs, thereby cutting down just a little before the new signs go up. THE OLD WAYS DIE HARD - With city streets in their current slippery condition there probably aren't too many drivers willing to exceed the posted 20 m.p.h. limit. Those with the courage to hit 30 m.p.h. in the old Central School zone (where the signs remained up after the school was phased out of use) may do so without feor of reprisal from city police. The police say they are not going to enforce the law. The city's engineering department says until the city's traffic committee meets next week and gives its authorization the signs must stay up. When they do come down, the crosswalk signal light on 6th Ave. S. at 9th St. will probably go too. There are plans for another crosswalk on the avenue at 12th St. for students who formerly attended Central but must now walk to Fleetwood-Bawden. Ingenuity wins the battle against mites and thrips By CHARLES BAUER Lethbridge Horticultural Society It was hot and dry in Southern Alberta last summer, providing favorable conditions for thrip and spider mites, two of the roost difficult pests to control in the rose garden. Thrip made their appearance in early July and the mites showed up soon after. Routine spraying seemed ineffective. I resorted to system-ics. Many dead thrip were then ooserved within the bloom but the tiny, newly - hatched ones were still scurrying about, not having consumed sufficient, if any, sap upon emerging from the egg. But when they did they left their mark upon the delicate petals. Contact sprays could not penetrate to their hid ing places within the petal folds of the opening buds. The light - colored flowers, to which they were most attracted, such as Pascali, Diamond Jubilee, Royal Highness and Grandpa Dickson, were badly marred. Blooms were kept cut ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Bids. 328*4095 at an early stage of opening to prevent further spread of the insects. Having learned aluminum foil was useful in controlling thrip, I decided to experiment with it. Three rose shows in which I intended to participate were scheduled for the third week in August. Something must be done to provide lighter shades for these shows. Mottled blooms would not win the approval of the judge. Cross pieces nailed to stakes were covered with the foil and placed at bud-level within a few inches behind the canes. One faced east, another south and the other west. The results were gratifying. About 10 days before show time, I placed the reflectors around several plants of the lighter varieties in bud, groom ed and timed for exhibition. A Pascali bush produced six blooms without a blemish and all figured in first awards, one winning two trophies. Several other blooms also benefitted from this method and proved quite useful for show purposes It seems the reflective glare from the sun on the foil was a deterrent to the flies intent on laying their eggs on the rose buds. When summer returns I will attempt further experiment with foil to provide protection to a larger number of plants. In mid - July my attention was drawn to the stippled, greyish appearance with specks like dust on webbing on the underside of the lower leaves, an indication of the presence of spider mites, which are difficult to see without magnification. Although I had spayed with systemics, they still survived Washing the lower leaves with forceful spray from the garden hose, with the nozzle turned upwards, proved effective. After several daily washings, Kel-thane, with a spreader sticker added, was sprayed onto the underside of the lower leaves. This did not entirely elimin ate the mites but they were under control with little damage done. Defoliation could result and plants weakened if left un checked. Don't wait until these pests get established. Take action before the population explosion develops!
