Fringad Approx. 17" x Reg. 1.29 By CATHIE HETI Herald Slafr Writer Isn't it nice to walk into a supermarket, and sec fresh mushrooms sitting on the shelves waiting for the custo- mer to purchase them? But (o bo fresh, they must almost be grown locally. So where in southern Alberta do "Lethbridge" mushrooms come from? In Alberta there arc only five lhat grow mushrooms, with the one closest to south- ern Alberta residents at Brooks. The other four mush- room farms are located in Ed- monton. Host people will probably agree that eating fresh mush- rooms is quite a beautiful thing. But Brooks mushroom grower, Archie Adams says mushroom farming takes a lot of knowledge, and there is no time for the grower to take va- cations if he wants to grow good mushrooms. It takes from six weeks to two months from the start o[ mixing manure to Ihc time when the last mushroom is picked, and because the mush- rooms are grown and the ma- nure mixed in different stages at different times, there is no time the grower can be away from h i s farm, said Mr. Adams. The first stage of starting an indoor mushroom bed takes up to two weeks. In this stage horse manure, imported from Midnapore by Mr. Adams, is turned over several times in a process called curing. The ma- nure is turned over to rid it of heat that is in it. Later, this is mixed with different types of minerals. The manure is then put into boxes piled In a room which Mr. Adams calls a Here the temperature is kept at 120 to 145 degrees for seven to 10 days. This process, call- ed sterilization, rids the ma- nure of ammonia which will not allow mushrooms to grow. It also gets rid of worms which might be in the manure. In the third stage of grow- ing mushrooms, the mushroom spawn is finally put on the ma- nure, and given a chance to jell. Here the mushroom fun- gus expands, and spreads down through the manure. In about 16 days, the grower can see the muslu-oom fungus has spread throughout the ma- nure, and then inches of peatmoss and sand is put on top of the manure. After the mushroom heads start to show on the top of the peat moss, the grower knows the mushrooms will be ready to pick in about six days, said Mr. Adams. The mushrooms are picked almost daily after that. About once a week there are flushes, said Mr. Adams, when the mushrooms all start maturing at once. For about two months after the heads appear, mush- rooms are picked and put into Vk pound boxes for shipping. After the two-month growing period, the soil is depleted of its nutrients, and the whole cycle begins once again. Mr. Adams said his mush- rooms are shipped fresh to Cal- gary and Medicine Hat by freight almost daily. He brings a load of them to Lethbridge once a week. Hired to help him on his farm, which cost him to set up, are from two to five girls as pickers, depending on how heavy the crop is, and two men to help with machines. The Brooks Mushroom Form is the second- largest muslu-oom producer in Alberta. The farm produces pounds of mushrooms annually. Mr. Adams, who started his mushroom farm in April 1969, he began growing them because "I've always had a de- sire for mushrooms." Work business is booming at Hire-a-Student offices By MARLENE COOKSHAW Herald Stall Writer Business is booming in the Hire-a-Sludent offices in Pinch- er Creek and Taber. The two centres have to date placed more workers in regu- lar jobs than were employed in both casual and regular labor last summer. "There's no question about it being a much better year. Claresholm and Fort Macleod will succeed with a little more work, said Arnold Smith, co-ordinator of the Pincher Creek, Claresholm and Fort Macleod offices. He works with two other co- Footwear Specials FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY LADIES' SUMMER SANDALS Including cork sole stylei. Assorted colours. Sizes 5 to 9.

Pincher Creek has been in op- eration more than a month, and the others for three weeks. Mr. Smith spends two days a week each in Claresholm and Fort Macleod, and one day in Pincher Creek. The Pincher Creek office is located in the United Church and is funded by the church and organized under Rev. Ken Jordan. Mr. Smith attributes the suc- cess of the offices, now in their second year, to better news coverage and advertising, and more employer interviews. "With it being in its second year, the majority of employers are more willing to give kids a he said. "There's a greater accept- ance of student workers ployers have become used to the idea that students can do the work. "There weren't as many Iran- sicnt laborers this year, either, which made more jobs avail- able in that area." Parking problems ivin sympathy Downtown city residents try- ing to get special parking per- mits to allow thorn to park pen- alty-free on their blocks won a court skirmish Tuesday. Provincial Court Judge L. W. Hudson showed his sympathy toward the cause Tuesday when he fined a resident who bad accumulated 12 parkings summons only Residents on the 400 block and 9th St. S. and 500 blocks and 7th and Oth St. live in a two hour restricted parking area The residents recently peti- tioned city council for parking permits which would allow them to park on their blocks penalty-free. Cily council turned down the request by a 4 to 3 margin with Mayor Andy Anderson, who had previously assured the petitioners his support, casting the deciding ballot. Tuesday's court action saw Rudy Haugeneder, 412 9th St. S., appeal to be given the same consideration as corporate by- law offenders. The defendant cited previous bylaws lhat had been blatantly broked without anyone being penalized. He said downtown business- men were not charged when they operjy broke the now- changed bylaw governing busi- ness hours. In his own case, Mr. Haug- eneder charged that construc- tion companies working on an Alberta Government Tele- phones expansion project di- rectly behind his home were blocking the laneway with ma- terials and veliicles. This block- ed traffic through a public road and broke a bylaw. He said city police had been contacted but nothing was done. The blockage prevented him from parking In a spot in his back yard. Further, it forced him to park in front of his home where he was penalized for doing so. Judge Hudson said the situa- tion was unfortunate but lhat there were not enough police- men to constantly enforce all bylaws. He then found the defendant guilty and fined him 51 for breaking the bylaw and ?3 court costs. The defendant then pleaded guilty to all except one other charge and was fined 51 and 51 costs on each count. 0 ne charge was withdrawn when it was pointed out Ihe address on the summons was in- correct. Many farm jobs FIELDS 31 n 6tli STREET S., LETHBRIDGE "About 90 per cent of Tabcrs job placement has been In tho agricultural area so said Mr. Lucas. "Most of the kids are young- high school students but that's not much problem be- cause the younger they are, tho more willing they are to try something different. So we're able to place them on the [arms. "The in (own industries just can't take the said Mr. Smith. "We encourage working in rural settings." "There's n good potential in Claresholm as well. There are n lot of jobs in the agricultural and manufacturing fields as well as retailing. "We have jobs open especial- ly for girls. The male place- ments arc starting to balance out now we couldn't gel enough originally." Steve Lucas in Tabor linds himself more a "frustration counsellor than co-ordinator. It's not nil just the Job you've gol (o be willing lo sit down and talk lo help the program suc- ceed." Tho two find one of the big- gest problems matching person- alities of employers and stu- dents. "You aim for compati- bility and you'vo gol, lo Keep plugging. Bui that will nlwnys n problem everybody's different." Government rents space Two provincial government departments are taking up oc- cupancy in (he Lethbridge Community College Science Building. The departments of agricul- ture and environment have rented square feet on a three-year lease, starting July 1. This will result in about revenue for the college during the term of the lease. An additional square feet is still available for lease. Dr. C. D. Stewart, president of LCC, said "two or three" other groups are looking at the remaining space but its not known how long it will be be- fore a decision is made. Hotel pub closed for three days The Alberta Liquor Control Board has ordered the licenced premises of (lie Garden Hotel, 510 3rd Ave. S., to remain for three days. The closure order followed a hearing before the ALCB in Edmonton June 27 which re- sulted in a decision lhat the premises were being "improp- erly operated." "The hearing resulted follow- ing a lengthy investigation of all city licenced premises by ALCB inspectors. The closure is the punative action which will be taken against the hotel by the board at this an Edmonton ALCB of- ficial iaid in a telephone inter- view. A cily ALCB inspector re- fused to comment about the investigation or nature of com- plaints lodged against the Gar- den Hotel. A reliable city police source reported the major complaint involved serving intoxicating beverages to persons who were aJready drunk, and by law, who should have been cut off. The ALCB investigation of other premises in Lethbridge continues, but an official spokesman refused to comment on any other forthcoming charges against city licenced premises. Everything is run on the most informal basis possible: "It's much easier lhat way, and more effective." Arnold Smith is in his first year general arts and science at Mount Royal College in Cal- gary, and will be returning to tlie University of Calgary. Steve Lucas will altend the Great Falls College for physi- cal education training after two years at the Lethbridge Com- munity College.
