Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 31, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, January 31, 1975 Your Garden Add color to garden and table By ISABELLE R. YOUNG F.R.H.S. Did you know that you can have a most colorful garden by growing vegetables? With the high cost of living, we should grow more. Along with the ordinary varieties, how about experimenting with some of the not so familiar ones. A most unusual vegetable is Rubine Red brussels sprouts, very popular in English gar- dens. The plant has red foliage and the sprouts are dark red.' If you like red cabbage, you're sure to like tlie sprouts. A favorite in many English gar- dens also is celery Prize Pink. This is not only outstanding for quality and taste, but looks attractive. It is widely used by exhibitors and is fast becom- ing a real delicacy. Parsley has many uses in the culinary art, and Darki variety is one that should be tried. The leaves are dark green, tight and closely spaced, heavy and intensely curled. It is quite vigorous and may be planted earlier than other varieties. You can grow it quite -The Herald At Home successfully under fluorescent lights. The New Wonder Everbear- ing pea is highly recommend- ed lor its large, well filled pods. It bears double pods at every node, and keeps right on to the top of the plant, thus ex- Carpentry Corner For safety, lock out crime To lower the frightening rise in burglaries, muggings and murder, we must have fewer victims, states a new book that explains how the reader can protect himself, his home and family. In easy to follow directions, and over 150 illustrations, the reader is shown how to install devices that trigger an instant alarm. No longer can one expect to lock out crime by locking the front door. Today protection must be loud, clear and in- stantaneous. For the 15th consecutive year, crime- has set an all time record with two crimes being committed every minute, twenty four hours every day. To eliminate stealth and surprise, the necessary ingredients to every successful break-in, the author, Donald Brann, ex- plains how to install manually and electronically controlled lights, bells, sirens, even an automatic telephone dialer that can activate a pre- recorded message requesting help from police head- quarters. While each device is designed to discourage a forc- ed entry, none can physically stop a crime. Each device alerts the intended victim. Since every crime requires someone, or something, being caught off guard or un- protected, the book explains how a bell, siren or klaxon can sound an alarm the moment a WORKERS' COMPENSATION BOARD-ALBERTA Safety Committee Training Course LETHBRIDGE SCANDINAVIAN HALL February 6th a.m. to p.m. A course designed to provide Safety Committee members and potential members with the necessary knowledge to effectively produce concrete results in controlling company losses due to work accidents and injuries. AMONG THE MANY SUBJECTS COVERED ACCIDENT CAUSES, REPORTING, INVESTIGATION PREVENTIVE MEASURES, JOB HAZARD ANAL- YSIS SAFETY COMMITTEES, TYPES RES- PONSIBILITIES AND METHODS. The course is designed so that a wealth ol in- formation is transmitted to the candidates In one day and work will not be disrupted during their absence.

Once upon a time hope and faith provided considerable protec- tion, but today, protection re- quires instant action sound or light, to be of any value. When an alarm bell, siren or klaxon is triggered electronically, it not only alerts the intended victim, but helps unnerve the intruder. Hardened criminals and first timers seldom stick around after an alarm is sounded. Recognizing how little the average homeowner knows about the installation of even the simplest electrical device, Brann explains and illustrates every step in words and pic- tures every apartment dweller and homeowner can follow. Installation procedures show how to in- stall alarm floodlights, room lights, sirens, klaxons; and how each can be triggered with a push button switch alongside a bed, kitchen sink, or electronically, using magnetic contacts applied .to vulnerable doors and windows; or under the carpet mats, photo electric eye, or by intercepting ultrasonic sound waves. Women who live alone, and families, who live in any area where a robbery, or other crime has occurred, feel much safer when they can in- stantly switch on floodlights, inside lights, without leaving the safety of the room they are in. Apartment dwellers who install the alarm devices recommended, can, upon hearing or seeing an intruder, blast away with an alarm bell that can penetrate two apartment floors above and below, or an entire neighborhood. All in- stallations can be made without permission of a building superintendent. Since few criminals remain in any area after triggering an alarm, each- device a homeowner installs, helps surprise the intruder, while it alerts his intended victim and neighbors.

Three Kings is another new introduction, triple-padded, averaging eight or nine plump, luscious peas. It is one of the easiest picking of all garden peas and is also heavi- ly productive and excellent for freezing. To add new color to salad dishes, grow Radish Yellow Gold, a tasty new treat for your table. They have a medium flavor, are egg shaped with white flesh. I'm sure everyone loves tomatoes, so instead of the usual red, Morden Early Yellow is to be recommended. This is a new variety from Morden Research Station, Morden, Man. The fruits average three inches in _diameter, are uniform, attractive, with a low acid content. They are as early as Starfire (56 and its clear yellow color makes it most appealing in salad dis- hes. One cannot think about hamburgers without thinking of onions and to make it even more appealing, spruce them up with Hamburger Queen. You will enjoy the attractive and appetizing appearance of this rich red onion Red Burgandy. It is not only extra sweet, but is exceptionally mild and because of globed shape, it is an easy slicer. Dress up your salads and other dishes with this colorful onion. Some of these varieties were introduced last year but may still be new to you. Another recent introduction you might try is the new stuff- ing tomato, quite distinct from all others. They are ac- tually real tomatoes but grow like sweet red peppers, being hollow except for a few seeds around the core, which may be easily scooped out. Lift out the compact centralized core and they are ready to be stuffed. These tomatoes are quite large, firm and red and distinctly three lobed. The plants are a good size, bushy and a heavy cropper. Most of the varieties men- tioned in this article are available from Dominion Seed House, Georgetown, Ont. HINT: Red petunias are so attractive in any garden. If you plan on growing some this year, put them in a spot where they will receive' the bright sunshine all day. This brings out the lovely true color. Don't feed table scraps to budgie Perhaps the worst mistake a budgie owner can make is to feed the bird with table scraps. What we eat is simply not healthy for any cage bird. The best authority on the feeding of your budgie is the breeder or pet store that sold him to you. But here are some helpful tips on how to select your budgie's food. Offer him clean seed that has been changed every day. This is important, so that you will avoid the mistake of see- ing seed husks in the food cup and thinking your pet is off his meals. Budgies usually husk their seed and eat only the kernel, leaving the shells to confuse you. By a routine of changing the food, you not only ensure a daily addition to his ration, you also prevent his eating stale food. There are several good budgerigar, seed mixtures available from your local pet store. The best of these con- tain well balanced portions of large millet, plain canary seed and hulled oats. If yours are young birds, take some of this seed and sprinkle trails of it across the cage floor to lead the budgies to the food dish. They'll quickly learn where to look for their meals, and in the meantime still get something to eat. Just as for you and I, life's the sweeter for a budgie if he gets the occasional "treat" with his food. These treaty seeds are available from your pet dealer at very low cost. Add small amounts of treats two or three times a week along with the regular diet. A cuttlebone is really vital to the health of your budgie. HOME OF THE WEEK 3 BED RM. FLOOR PLAN 4 BED RM.

Available this spring New glad varieties unveiled All America Gladiolus Selections has announced three 1975 All America glads. The newest award winning varieties are Green Lilac, Highstyle and Summer Snow. All three are available for planting this spring, provided, of course, you don't wait too long to place an order with your favorite cataloguer or garden supply store. Green Lilac is a dainty, orchid lavender with a con- spicuous chartreuse green open, flat and needlepointed. Up to 10 florets open formally on strong 5 foot stems above lush foliage, out of a total of 22 buds. Highstyle won many awards as a seedling before its selection as an All America. Its'gorgeous color and appeal will make it ex- tremely popular. Lynn Coon, Paul, Idaho, created Highstyle; he can be justly proud of his first All America winner. Summer Snow is considered Fire Chief (brilliant fire engine and Navy Blue (velvety deep blue the 1973 winners, Mexicali Rose (bright rose with silver Big Daddy (huge, gorgeous and Bright- side (intriguing yellow and red and the 1972 winners, Orange Chiffon (ruffled rich Cameo (delightfully different peaches and cream) and Miss America (stunning, prize winning deep center. The delicacy of -by many experts to be the coloring, waxy texture and most beautiful white gladiolus lovely ruffling of the needlepointed petals will sure-- ly charm the home gardener. It also has great show poten- tial. The medium tall spikes carry from 9 to 11 firmly at- tached florets open at one time on uniformly good spikes right down the row. Green Lilac has exceptionally pleas- ing contrast and is one of the most exotically colored novelties in years; it will grow easily anywhere. Winston Roberts, Boise, Idaho, is the originator of Green Lilac. It is a fitting tribute to Mr. Roberts' nearly forty years in hybridizing and cataloguing outstanding varieties of gladiolus. The elegant ruffling and heavy substance of Highstyle, a rosy lavender gladiolus, is nicely accentuated by the1 prominent cream white throat which shades to white. The 5 inch florets are wide of all the whites. The classic refinement, and the smoothness and purity-of its whiteness, will make it a favorite wherever it is grown. The broad petals are graceful- ly recurved, the ruffling is highly tailored, and the 8 -10 rounded florets are opened in formal arrangement on tall, strong spikes. The cool white florets have a mint green throat, with light lavender anthers and faint magenta dots deep in the throat. Summer Snow will make a refreshing display during the summer heat. This exquisitely beautiful gladiolus is a lovely addition to the impressive list of All America winners created by Carl Fischer of St. Charles, Minnesota. In the All America parade other glads of recent introduc- tion singled out for 5 star billing are such standout per- formers as the 1974 winners, HIGHSTYLE, SUMMER SNOW, GREEN LILAC ;
