Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 25, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, January 25, 1975 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 9 Illegal strike CN rail takes action against union 'EDMONTON (CP) Canadian National Rail- ways has taken legal ac- tion against the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and its members who have par- tiicipated in illegal strikes at terminals across Canada, a railway spokesman said today. W. D. CN-vice- president of rail operations said Friday in a telephone interview from Montreal that CN regions affected by the strikers are suing for damages. About locomotive engi- neers in New Brunswick, On- tario, Manitoba, Saskatchewn, Alberta and British Columbia have been involved in the illegal activity, he said. "The travelling public and our freight and express customers have been serious- ly inconvenienced by the ac- tion of the Mr. Piggott said. "We have reached the point where their action will cause layoffs of other CN employees." He said the action comes at a time when the Canadian economy cannot afford an interruption in vital freight services or transporation and handling of grain. "The men have had ample opportunity to consider their position and we expect them to honor their said. In Edmonton, C. F..-Arm- strong, vice-president of CN's Mountain Region, said initial action in court relative to British Columbia and Alberta, will be addressed to employees who have withdrawn their services at Edmonton and Biggar, Sask. Similar action is con- templated at other points if the disruption in service con- tinues, he said. Average of weekly pay for workers up 13.8% OTTAWA (CP) Average weekly earnings of more tljan four million workers rose 13.8 per cent during the 12 months, to November last year, out- stripping the 12-per-cent in- crease in consumer prices in the corresponding period, Sta- tistics Canada reported Wednesday. In November, average weekly wages were up 1.2 per' cent and the consumer price index 1.1 per cent. The average weekly wage in November was com- pared with a month earlier. The figures are ad- justed to account for seasonal factors. The average covers all workers except those in agriculture, government ser- vice, fishing and trapping, domestic service and religious organizations.

One of many wildlife species managed by this agency is pheasants. During the next few articles, we will examine the Fish and Wildlife Division's current pheasant management program in Alberta. In order to manage pheasants, we must know how abundant they are in various portions of their provincial range. The range of pheasants in Alberta was outlined in ar- ticle 3 of this series.

Bugl ble to count every bird in an area due to their daily movements and ability to hide in heavy cover. Furthermore, it is not necessary to count every bird in order to manage their pop- ulations effectively. What is important is to be able to determine their "relative abundance" from one area to another and from one year to the next. One technique to determine relative abundance is the spr- ing crowing count census. This method takes advantage of our knowledge that, during the peak of the spring breeding season most cock pheasants in an area will crow an average of once every two minutes around sunrise. To determine the relative abundance of cock pheasants in an area, a survey route con- sisting of 15 to 20 points, each one mile apart, is established through the area. An observer then travels this route, beginning one-half hour before sunrise. Every mile, he stops and records the number of cock calls heard during a two minute interval. The census should be completed by one- half hour after sunrise. It is important to restrict crowing counts to mornings when wind does not make it difficult to hear the birds and all censusing should be done during the peak of the breeding season. A crowing count index is calculated by dividing the total number of cock calls along the transect by the number of stops made en route. For example, if 120 cock calls are heard along a transect consisting of 20 stops, the crowing count index is 120 divided by 20 equals 6. This index indicates the average number of roosters heard at each stop. COMPARISON By comparing crowing count Indexes between different areas or different changes in relative abundance of cock pheasants can be measured. An area with a crowing count index of 12 has twice as many roosters as an area whose index is 6. Similarly, if the crowing count index in an area was 4 in 1963 and 12 in 1964, there were 12 divided by 4 equals 3 times as many cock pheasants in the area in 1964 than in 1963. Article 5 in this series show- ed the changes in crowing count indexes in the Lethbridge and Calgary areas from 1961-74. While spring crowing count indexes are useful indicators of changes in cock pheasant numbers, they tell us nothing about hen pheasant numbers. However, again we take ad- vantage of our knowledge of pheasant behavior. While cock and hen pheasants tend to re- main separated much of the year, they group together on wintering areas.. By observing large numbers of pheasants on wintering areas and classifying them ac cording to sex, the ratio of hens to cocks can be deter- mined prior to the breeding season. If 200 birds are sighted and 160 of these are hens, then the sex ratio of hens to cocks is 160 to 40 or 4 hens to 1 cock. As cocks and hens die at about the same rate during the winter, the sex ratio remains the same even though the total number of birds declines. Thus, the ratio of hens to cocks the following spring is the same as that determined by winter sex ratio surveys. ESTIMATE By combining the informa- tion obtained from both winter sex ratio surveys and spring crowing counts, a reasonable estimate of the breeding population index can be made. For example, if the winter sex ratio is 4 hens to 1 cock and the spring crowing count index is 6; then the breeding population index equals 6 plus (6 x 4) equals 30 per transect stop in the area. It is important to note that breeding population indexes do not tell us how many birds there actually are in the breeding population. It is merely another useful in- dicator that allows us to com- pare the relative abundance of breeding pheasants in different areas or different years. Next week: Production and mortality. Canadian cows best in world OTTAWA (CP) It sounded like .bull to some opposition members when Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan boasted in the Commons Friday that Canadian cows are "the super cows of toe world." "Super snapped Gordon Fairweather "It is a matter of fact and the whole world knows it and I cannot understand... why honorable members op- posite do not, that we do have super said Mr. Whelan. "We've got said the unimpressed Mr. Fairweather. Mr. Whelan said his department's breeding program "has made the Canadian cow, espe- cially the Canadian Holstein cow, the super cow of the world." Mr. Whelan also said that Canadian industrial milk producers "have been taken care of better than any other in- dustrial group of milk producers in the world." "No other country is developing a formula pricing system ,as we are and no other country has maintained its production as we have, regardless of what anyone.has continued Mr. Whelan. It was the government's plan to give milk producers the best deal possible. "It will encourage producers and provide stability so that they can plan their produc- tion and programming for milk production and still give consumers the cheapest, highest quali- ty product in the added the minister.
