Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - January 19, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta r ^- SATURDAY, JANUARY 19, 1918 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE SEVEN OF INTEREST TO THE FARMERI OUTLOOK FOR CROP 1918 IS EXCELLENT Th to reater duction Throughout tho country thoro "was n p pi end (1 roHpouse during 1917 to tho trull for increuBcel agricultural production, burger crops were rained on the I'nrins, an/I city dwellers'by Hie cultivation of gardens and vacant lota contributed greatly to the' hucccbb of Canada'* oCfottH to relieve tins worldwide food shortage. Greater production of Com! supplies than ever is required next year, for field eropa are not only required to meet Immediate human uectiH, but increased production of hogs, dairy product?, and heat are dependent upon such crops. The production of maximum crops demands constant watchfulness and effort on the part/ of the farmer, fruitgrower, and vacant lot cultivator in order that such crops may be protected from the numerous peats that attack them. Wo repeat: "Crop protection means crop production." In-.sect pests destroy annually from 10 to 2fi per cent of a!i crops grown. The total loss to the country is enormous; if wo express thft aggregate loss inflicted annually by insect pests to tho field crops of Canada in terms of �wheat wo find that the total loss is sufficient to feed the entire population of the country for one year. Much of that loss can be prevented. At the present time it is incumbent upon us to take every means to prevent it. Ii.sects can be as effective as enemy submarines in destroying food supplies. iA'zc submarines, they arc insidious in their operations. They jnust be sought out and destroyed. Now is the time to make preparations for next ; ear's offensive. To he prepared is half tho battle. Lack of foresight and due preparation means disappointment and loss. The greater cost of production and the greater jiccd of more crops makes crop protection all the more necessary. Utilize i* present r/u!et sea j,i to make plans their ravngec next t-caaon. Owing to the sudden demand during the period when iusiicts were active last summer Cor Insecticides such as lead arsenate, and Paris green, a serious shortage occurred In many' plaeos, with consequent higher prices. This, can be avoided If growers will obtain their re-:, auirements before spring. Insecticides | lT.!T. are tho growers' ammunition, ample supplies of which are neceaBary to a successful offensive. Fruit-growers should now determlno their requirements and take stops co meet them. Growers of potatoes and other field crops subject to lnsec* attack should obtain supplies of tho standard Insecticides to meet their needs: arsenlcals, for Insects such as grasshoppers, potato-beetles, cutworms and other caterpillars that devour tlje foliage; contact insecticides such as whale-oil soap and nicotine preparations for such insects as plant lice or aphids. All spraying machinery should be thoroughly overhauled, cleaned, and oiled in readiness for use when required in the spring, as the spring ra a busy time for the grower. Such timely preparation will mean not only the saving of time*-an important matter when labor is scarce-but it will also mean the saving of crops, for a few days' delay in applying preventive or control measures will frequently result in serious iossos ti om insect pests. When it is possible rubbish and tniBh of all kinds should be cleaned up and burnt. A clean farm, orchard, or garden means fewer insect pests. Weedy fences and fiends and accumulations of rubbish provide hiding 1 places for these crop destroyers. It will be advisable to watch seeds of all kiuda that are stored under cover, �ib these are subject to tho attacks of many insects, such as weevils, etc. Seed peas and, beans should receive special attention, and if they fully withstand insect attacks. Certain insects are more readily controlled during the winter months. In th i provinces of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick fruit-growers should make every effort to collect the winter webs of the brown-tail moth; the Jaw requires owners of properties infested with this insect to adopt control measures. Throughout Eastern Canada there is at the present time a widespread outbreak of tho whllomarked tussock moth, which we expect to he Fruit-growers and owners of shade trees should now destroy as many as possible 'of the conspicuous white egg clusters in which the insect passes the winter; they can he scraped off the trees, fences, etc., or swabbed with creosote. Much injury next year will be prevented by taking such steps during the coming winter and early spring before the buds burst. Fanners, fruit-growers and others are urgently ] equested to make the fullest use of the offices of the En Farmers State That Soil and Moisture Conditions Are of The Best has 1,500,000 acres ready for crop next spring, the largest acreage In the history of tho country. Thousands of acres of new breaking are ready and this is In particularly good shape owing to the snow and thaws which gave It a good soaking. RAYMOND \ Farmers of Southern Alberta are generally very favorably impressed with tho outlook for a I ig crop next year, according to what t";e Herald can learn from conversation with farmers who come to the city tr-^sfi days. Soil and moisture conditions are good, they state, and if tho normal amount of precipitation Is received in May, June and July there will be heavy yields. . Southern Alberta went into the winter with less moisture than in any year since the fall or' 1013. Hut during December the snowfall was exceptionally heavy, and early in January gentle chinooks. carried off tho snow, the resultant water soaking into the soli (From the Recorder) A real estate deal of more, than passing interest was transacted this wi;ek when I).

Needs, Prop. 8th Street S. I (From Our Own *?ftrr**oonfl*nf> , Coaldale, Jan. 17.-The annunl meeting of ratepayers of Coaldale Consolidated School District No. 9, was held on Saturday afternoon, Jan, 12. The attendance was not a3 large as the nature of the occasion would have warranted. The teachers report, inspector's report, secretary-treasurer's report and report of the auditor, were presented. 98 pupils were in attendance during the year as compared with 7(i In 1916. The tax rate is three mills, on the assessment. The chairman of the Board presented a roport which was very full. ' A, W. Mitchell, F. Knapp and A. Haley were re-elected trustees for Coaldale, East Coaldale and South Coaldale, respectively, and J. K. Hart was elected to represent North "Coaldale, a district which formerly had no resident ratepayer and was represented hy-W. H. Pav/son, an official trustee appointed by the Department. At a meeting of the board, Mr. Mitchell was again elected chairman, and H, A. Suggltt web re-engaged as Secretary-Treasurer, Assessor, Tax Collector, etc. A number of the young men from this district are attending the Tractor School, conducted by the I. H. C. in Lethbridge. The small tractor has come into so general use that such a school will be found very helpful. Fred Coloren has been on the sick list i'ci the past few days, out Is recovering. A huge number from here attended the grand opera "Lucia de Lammer-moor," in Lethbridge on Monday night. A large party of young pooplo paid a surprise vjsit to the Kramer home, north-east oi town on Tuesday evening. They were heartily welcomed and a pleasant evening at v/ivdy, game j and dancing was enjoyed Delnney and Lathrop have at1 del to their pure bred stock some rnoro hogs and cattle of a good type. Hay continues f,o move quite freely and at a good price, although it is expected that the total output will not equal that of former years, so much more being fed* here '� this winter. There are several sheep camps in this district this winter. Business men of the city, especially the retail merchants as represented on the board of trade, are averse to the proposed traffic bylaw under consideration by the city council for the control of vehicular traffic on Lethbridge streets. They arc particularly oppos-1 ed to that section of it which provides that the parking of cars on Gth �ft. S. and 3rd Ave. S. shall not be allowed, for a longer time than 30 minutes. "We must not harass our farmer friends when they come to Lethbridge to shop," said Louis Keel at the hoard of trade meeting last night. "Let them come, and let them have the full use 'of the streets without having to bother about bylaws they do not understand." Mr. Keel was supported in this contention by N. B. Good, H. G. Clarke and other retailers present at the meeting. The meeting eventually decided to have a committee'composed of S. S. Dunham, L. Keel, H. G, Clarke, S. J. Shepherd and R. T. Brymner wait on the auto club and also on the city council with a view to having the obnoxious clause removed. They wJH suggest that a parking stand off the main streets be set aside for the taxi-cabs and other cars for hire.
