Mr Barrett gamed his master’s thesis on the basis of research concerning pheasants "Our pheasant range is deteriorating at a slow but steady pace ’ Removal of roadside and ditch banlc cover, drained wetlands, larger fields with fewer headlands and fewer homesteads wi^ windbreaks, more efficient weed control, increased use of pesticides, concrete lining in irrigation canals, less hauling of grain in open trucks and heavy gazing pressure all contribute to the probienis. “It is apparent that most of these factors result from good farming practices but their effect on pheasants will, in the long run, be devastating. “The lack of large areas of contiguous habitat is the major reason why we do not foresee, in the near future, the probability of ever having the high ph«asant^p-ulations that were so common m the 1950 s and early 1960’s.” But Mr. Barrett said pheasant populations will rebound from their current low levels. “. . . we will require at Ikeast one and probably two good survival and production years to regain satisfactory population levels.    ,, . ’ “The fish and wildlife division (of lands and forests) have begun habitat development schemes ... specific areas are being improved with the creatirai of shelter belts and feeding sites.”    , The division is also working with municipalities to improve pheasant habitats along road allowances. “The pheasant decline was general throughout the pheasant range in Alberta including areas that receive practically no hunting pressure," he reports. “Excessive hunting pressure has never been regarded as a population limiting factor in Alberta. “Pheasant populations can and do withstand much heavier hunting pressure in other portions of their range and Alberta Is not felt to be any exception to the rule.” Early closure of the hunting season last year should not be interpreted to imply that hunting is a major population limiting factor, “'ffiere will be no measurable effect on pheasant populations. “The primary purpose of the early closur« Is to draw the attention of all interested individuals to the seriousness of the pheasant population decline ” Nor are pheasant p<mulations generally limited by foxes, Mr Barrett sa^, although where good habitats are limited, these skillful and efficient predators can dent pheasant numbers , „ . But; “Extensive fox control efforts in other areas have not resulted in significant increases in pheasants . . . pheasant populations are equally low in portions ot Alberta where there are few or no foxes. He adds: “It should also be remembered that foxes are native to this country and wssibly have a justified claim to ex-stence.” They also feed on several species of rodent hariiiful to agriculture. Last year’s drastic decline in the_ pheasant p<^ulation in the South was attributed to an unsuccessful spring hatching. “Examination of weather data during this critical hatching period (June 12 to 17) indicated that neariy two inches of rain fell in Lethbridge on June 14 and 15; the same storm dumped up to seven inches of rain in the Brooks-Hanna area. This widespread storm, at such a crucial time, almost certainly dealt the major blow to pheasant chicks and devastated our 1973 pheasant population." While summer droughts of the past two years have not had a large-scale impact, some redistribution of birds has occurred Chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides have robbed pheasants of nesting and wintering areas and insecte crucial to their diet during the first month of life. Mr. Barrett says sportsmen should not believe that stocking programs will solve the problem although the division is ran-sidering expanding its program. The production costs per adult bird released are high at about $7.50. The habitat must also be suitable for the pheasants , to increase their numbers or stocking programs will fail. The present production facilities at Brooks can only put out 10,000 pheasants per year or one-sixth of a bird per hunter. ■MÊàà- This 8-vifeek old pheasant has been the victim of cannibalism. The province raised this 6-vifeek old bird under good conditions. Paterson renovation ^Qntario sHould determine won^t create deficit Education and Development Association, the conference has been designed to stimulate the effective involvement of Alberta farm and rural leaders in the agricultural and rural policy -making process. Determining the agriculture base for the province is important, says Ann Prideaux, administrative assistant for the department of extension at the U of A in Edmonton. RERGMAN’S Renovation and expansion to the Gilbert Paterson School will not create a deficit in the 1974 budget ratified Tuesday by the public school board. The trustees decision this week to fund about 1,700 square feet of the proposed addition to the school isn’t expected to cost the school system more than the f170,000 it has been setting aside for the project during the last two budget years, the secretary -treasurer of public schools said Wednesday. The exact cost of the addition will not be finalized until the architect has completed the working drawings and specifications. Mack Crumley said in an interview The department of education informed the trustees earlier this month that it would only support about 12,200 square feet of the proposed 19,570 square-foot addition. That left the school board with paying for a portion of Another step for homecare The Lethbridge Homecare Committee will meet Friday with Neil Crawford, minister of health and social development, in Fort Macleod, to discuss a planned homecare program. the total square footage out of its own budget or reducing the size of the addition. The City of Lethbridge will also sponsor 5,000 square feet of the addition as part of an agreement with the school board for community use of the school. switch to daylight time’ 1 alderman dropped from health board Three instead of four members of city council will now sit on the city health unit board of directors, according to a change announced by the provincial government. The change was requested by the board, but had to be approved by the provincial government. It will become effective in October when city council selects new representatives to the board or before then if one of the council representatives chooses to resign before then The board requested the change because it was felt three members was all that was necessary. With other commitments it was difficult for all aldermen to attend the meetings. The board comprises Mayor Andy Anderson, Deputy Mayor Vaughan Hembroff, Aid. Vera Ferguson and Aid. Cam Barnes. Alberta should ^o on winter daylight saving time only if Ontario does, the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce board of directors feels. On a motion by John Loewen, the chamber directors voted Wednesday to tie their opinion on whether Alberta should go to winter daylight time to what happens in Ontario (^tario has announced once that it will not switch to daylight time this winter. Mr. Loewen pointed to economic reasons for his motion. He said the country’s communications network, especially television, was centred in Ontario and many major businesses are headquartered there. Jim Dunstan, Lethbridge manager for Richardson Securities, said he was not particularly worried about having to open his own office early, but it would affect all marketing if Ontario went on daylight saving time and .Alberta did not. “We have to keep our own needs in focus," he said, “All commodity markets are on the same basis and there would be less time than now for trading,” Ontario is two hours ahead of Alberta when both are on standard time, but would be three hours ahead if it went on daylight saving time. In other business, directors also voted overwhelmingly to donate Chamber of Commerce records and correspondence, some items dating back to 1912, to the Sir Alexander Galt Museum. General manager Mike Sutherland told the directors some very good material bearing on the growth of Lethbridge was included. The records had been sorted and catalogued by the museum curator, who had expressed interest in having them. Files will now be kept for seven years before disposal. Mr. Loewen, chairman of the civic affairs committee, recommended inquiring into the possibility of leasing the old public library when the chambers present lease expires. He suggested extra space could be sublet to related groups such as the Southern Alberta Travel and Convention Association. Aid. Tom Ferguson, a member of the library board, said the Golden Mile Senior Citizens' Centre had already inquired about the building.

College for persons who have no or very little formal education. The skills course, conducted by the division of continuing education, covers English and mathematics up to Grades 8 and 9 It is offered from 9 a.m. to 3 p m. daily and 17 adults — both male and female — are enrolled Students can enter the course at any time during the second semester since they are taught individually at their own ability and skill level. The program is geared to those who lack fundamentals of reading and writing English or basics in mathematics and as a result are having difficulty in entering the labor force or have no promise of advancement in their current position, says Dale Heyland, college director of continuing education MLA Dick Gruenwald (SC-Uthbridge West) gave strong support Wednesday to Tory Premier Peter Lougheed’s position at the federal - provincial ener^ conference in an off-the-cuff address to the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce board of directors. “I believe the premier of Alberta is continuing with the stand he has taken since the beginning — that Alberta’s oil belongs to Albertans and Alberta should get a good price for it, and that he represents all Albertans,” said Mr. Gruenwald. “Thai should in no way be construed as not looking at the Canadian interest,” he added. He also said it was "ridiculous” to ask Mr. Lougheed to make important decisions regarding energy pricing at the conference because he could not consult with his cabinet. "I believe as Albertans we can be proud of him down there, and he will look after our interests,” said Mr. Gruenwald The chamber directors voted to send a letter commending the province for its energy stand.
