Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, July 9, THI IfTHMIDGE HERAIU Armstrong blew a peerless horn HOME OF THE WEEK NEW YORK (AP) The King is dead. There is no crown prince. There never really was. Louis Armstrong blew a peer- less horn of a musical style that has all but preceded him in death. There are direct lin- eal descendants in dixieland and his influence can be traced to more modern music forms. Fish, game hunt allowed in 3 areas CALGARY (CP) Hunting, trapping and fishing will bs al- lowed to continue in Siffleur, White Goat and Ghost wilder- ness areas until their bound- aries are redrawn next year, the deputy minister of lands and forests said today. Dr. V. A. Wood said an ad- visory committee to decide the areas' limits would be named within 10 days. The three areas were De- scribed as "provisional" by the Wilderness Act passed at the last sitting of the legislature. The. act prohibits bunting, trap- ping, fishing and travel other than by foot. When the boundaries are re- drawn they would give each area 144 square miles, the maximum allowable under the legislation. The three areas are in the Rocky Mountains with only the Ghost region smaller than the maximum. Small towns policing is not adequate CALGARY (CP) Citizens in many of Alberta's smaller communities are not getting adequate police service, Pro- g r e s s i v e Conservative MLA Bill Dickie said here. He sent a telegram to Attor- ney General Edgar Gerhart saying RCMP were not pre- pared to take over policing from local forces as they were supposed to July 1 under the new Police Act. RCMP do not have sufficient men to handle all communities of less than Mr. Dickie said, and under the legislation the community forces have been reduced to "glorified com- missionaires" because they have no authority to arrest for criminal code offences. Mr. Dickie, member for Cal- gary Glenmore, said profes- sional people in some com- munities are considering leav- ing unless they get improved protection and immediate ac- tion. Blind man sees again after graft MOSCOW (Renter) A So- viet surgeon has succeeded in making one complete working eye in a previously blind man by grafting together the good portions of his two damaged eyes, the Soviet newspaper Pravda said here. The patient was blinded by a chemical in an accident three years ago, destroying lire front chambers of both eyes, the newspaper said. It. said Dr. Mikhail Krasnov joined the healthy rear sec- tions of both eyes then cut an aperture a kind of new pupil in the eye. Five days later the patient had perfect sight in the new eye, Pravda said. Bandit selects wrong batik CALGARY (CP) An un- armed bandit chose the wrong bank to rob Thursday the one across the inter- section from police head- quarters. As he fled the bank, the teller he robbed pushed an alarm button and two cus- tomers gave chase; two con- stables saw the pursuit and joined it. The bandit was found in a clothing store a block nwny trying to buy a pair of jeans and a western shirt. George Albert Chamber- of no fixed address was arrested and was to appear in provincial court. But he was one of the last tlie the New Orleans jazzmen who created an authentic art form, authentic despite its bawdy- house and campground ori- gins. There were Jelly Roll Mor- ton and Buddy Bolden and Johnny Dodds and King Oli- ver and Sidney Bechel and Freddie Keppard and many more, now only memories on wax. But always, from his teen-age on, there was Arm- strong. In Ms later years he was more lyr- ics in his unique fogbound gut- tural, rolling his eyes, grimac- ing, laughing and then punch- ing oul some high ones on the long, thin trumpet that had long since replaced his stub- bier, mellower comef. bly 'that's how most Ameri- cans will remember him. CALLED A GENIUS But it through the cor- net thai Armslrong first pro- claimed his genius. And that's what it was. His Hot Five and Hot Seven records, made when he and the century were in their '20s, were moments of pure inspi- ration. Even with the primi- tive recording instruments of the time they demonstrate again and again how Arm- strong could take the Iritesl tune and transform it into a classic with cascades of notes that he could hardly wait long enough to blare through his horn. He was a master of sus- pense, lagging slightly behind the beat to heighten the ex- pectation. Then he would burst into a cadenza of im- provisation, note tumbling out after note with breath-taking ingenuity and a depth of tone and feeling that leaves the lis- tener wondering where in this in the all could have come from. It was the ultimate refine- ment of the cruder, spiritual jazz he had left downriver when he came north to Chi- cago. HELD BACK WORDS He sang the same way, holding back on a word until one thought he had forgotten the lyrics and then wah-wah- ing it at just the critical mo- ment. Genius. Any number of musicians unashamedly confessed to his influence on their styles. They were his legacy to the future and Hot Five buff would question the latter American jazz. He himself, after this golden period, switched to the trum- pet, added more sidemen to the least common denomina- tor of the traditional New Or- leans band and shrilled his way to international fame with his high-octave acrobat- ics. some of them, said he had become less pure by doing so. But it was still un- mistakably Armstrong, blow- ing horn where no one had ever been before, pouring out torrents of notes that who could ever have composed all instinctively, all from some- where where the jazz musi- cian finds his remarkable freshness of inspiration. Tf not gold, then it was sil- ver. Gabriel, move over.

NAME ADDRESS (Leth.) Do you have a family prob- lem? Many of us do. We mean, does your family frequently seem to outgrow the living space you have provided for them? Every square foot of space is utilized to the best ad- vantage in this functional and attractive back split design. This house is ideal for a large family. Noise is kept to a mini- mum with the three-level split. Note the many extras as you take an imaginary walk tlirough. The two car garage has separate doors, easiest for tire ladies of the family to han- dle. The entrance is sheltered by a roofed porch. The foyer is wider than usual and beside the guest closet is a con- veniently situated seat with umbrella stand. From this point you enter either a bright bay windowed living room, rath plenty of wall space for pointings, or the streamlined kitchen with breakfast nook and side entrance. Two bath- rooms serve the three bed- looms on the upper level, one eusuite with the master bed- rcom, and all bedrooms have ample closet space. The lower level has a large family room with a raised hearth for the comer fireplace. Next to this is a good sized den with closet, which would make a dandy fourth bedroom, since it is just a step from the third bathroom with its stall shower. This home will fit easily on a 60 ft. lot. YOUR GARDEN By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.S. EPISCIAS Episcias, sometimes referred to as 'Flame are trailing, fibrous rooted plants with beautiful foliage, varying greatly in color and pattern. They belong to the Gesneria family, of which the African Violet (Saintpaulia) and Gloxinia are two of the most popular. While they are naturally trailers, they can be trained to grow up- right if a proper support is furnished. Runners, with small plants on the ends, form on older plants, making them quite ornamental. These may be rooted to form new plants. However, to make a more compact plant remove these when they appear. The flow- ers of Episcias are tubular with five fringed or wavy pet- als in colors of red, orange, pink, yellow, white, lavender blue. The leaves are consider- ed by some people to be more attractive than the flowers and m a y be light or dark green, with a metallic sheen of bronze, copper or silver, ei- ther smooth or hairy in tex- ture. The soil mixture should be porous, well-drained, humusy and moisture-retentive. A good compost such as one used for African Violets consists of 8 cups good loam, 8 cups peat moss, 2 cups coarse sand, cup bonemeal, 14 cup char- coal, with a iittle pulverized manure. After the plants are well established, feed with a complete house plant fertilizer every two or three weeks. To grow these plants well, there are some cultural conditions that should be given consid- eration. Those with furry-tex- tured or hairy leaves can be grown in almost full sun, ex- cept during the very hot days of summer when they should be given filtered light. Those with smooth leaves require light shade. They all need more light than African Vio- lets, especially when flower- ing. Fluorescent lights may also be used in place of nat- ural light. A temperature of between 65 and 70 degrees F. suits them nicely. Anything be- low 55 degrees F. will cause the leaves to turn black as if "frosted." Humidity is quite important and foliage will not be up to standard if they do not receive enough. To provide this, pots may be put on a low dish or tray filled with peb- bles and water. Misting with a fine spray, with water at room temperature is helpful. Episcias require more water than African Violets, but do not let the earth become too soggy, and always use warm water. There are several contain- ers one may use for Episdas. Hanging baskets are ideal; terrariums are very effective when landscaped with Episcias and other plants; large and small planters and pots, either ceramic, plastic or clay may be used. Episcias are propagated by seeds, leaf cuttings or runners. As the seeds are very fine, they should be barely covered after sowing. There are many favorites to choose from. I would think that people who specialize in African Violets and Gloxinias, which are two of the most popular gesner- iads, might grow episcias too. One seed catalogue has a mix- ed package of some of the colors, but not too many firms seem to list them. The one 1 have is Episcia reptans (E. coccinea) with dark green leaves, tinged with copper, and the flowers are red. This given to me by a friend many years ago. Mrs. K. For the past twe years I haven't been able to grow good cauliflowers. The plants seem healthy when I put them out but they don't grow very much and (lie white centre stops growing and gete no bigger than a quarter. Could you tell me what causes this? Ans. Tliis is what fa known as "buttoning." The small curd is caused by a nitrogen deficiency early in the life of the plant. It is best when cauliflower are started only six weeks prior to garden transplanting, and kept grow- ing by supplying adequate amounts of nutrients and wa- ter. Prolonged hot, dry spells can also cause "buttoning." Cauliflower requires a slow, steady growth. NOTE: All questions should be sent with self addressed- stamped, envelope to Mrs. I. R. Young, 3620 Centre B. St. N.W., Calgary 43. Due to the number of letters asking more than one question it is requested in future enquiries that only ONE question be submitted each time as It is impossible for Mrs. Young and do her practical garden- to reply to all correspondence ing as well. ETHIOPIA'S POPULATION' The current population of Ethiopia is about 23 million. Proper precautions are important Power mower can be lethal By MR. FIX One of today's great work- savers also is a potentially lethal instrument. The power mower, particularly the rotary type, is the accepted tool for cutting the grass. But, unless normal precau- tions are observed, the mower can injure and maim. It also has another quality' the old hand mower didn't have that is the quality of breaking down. There was little that could go wrong with the old push-style mower but there are any number of things that can interrupt the operation of a power mower. Again, like safety, con- tinuous operation without trou- ble is mostly a matter of ob- serving proper precautions. Let's take safety first. Read the owner's manual thoroughly. Familiarize your- self with the controls and what they do. Be certain that you can stop the mower instantly. Stand clear when you start She mower. Hands and feel should never be under the mower or near the discharge chute or near any moving part while you are mowing. Fill the gas tank before you start. Do not fill while the en- gine is running or while it is hot. If gasoline spills on the engine, wipe it off before start- ing. Remember that gasoline is very inflammable and han- dle it accordingly. Clear the lawn of stones, sticks and other foreign ob- jects before mowing. S'uch ob- jects can be hurled with tre- mendous force. They also will damage the blade. Stop mow- ing if someone is opposite the discharge chute. Keep the area An outdoor gym is easy to build By DONALD R. BRANN Two swings, a see-saw, climbing rope and horizontal bar make this unit a number one "m u s t" for the family with children. This complete playground acts as a magnet in Keeping youngsters playing "in their own backyard." One proud father recently remarked how much this gym changed his homelife. Since all neighborhood children are now content to spend the afternoon at the "gym" his wife rotates watching a group, rather than only {heir children. The other mothers take turns, so each gets a free afternoon every week, "at no extra cost." The savings in "baby sitting" wages during one month was almost enough to pay for all materials required lo build the gym. Full size patterns for all angle cuts, plus illustrated step-by-step directions make it possible for everyone to build this gym with only basic hand tools. No special skill is re- quired.

Most safety precautions are good maintenance tips. Keep all nuts and bolts tight. Stop and tighten them at the least sign of rattling. Check blade mounting nut occasionally to see that it is tight but don't forget to disconnect the spark plug first! Check oil level and change oil at recommended intervals. Do not use gasoline left from last season. Drain tank of old fuel. Keep air filters clean. Blades can be removed and sharpened with a file. File evenly and keep the blade bal- anced. A dull and rough blade will leave the grass brown. Remember that any exces- sive vibration is a sign of trou- ble. Check mounting bolts, blade nut. If none of these are loose, check for a bent blade, something that results when you hit the edge of a walk, a tree root or a large stone or when you scalp a high spot in the lawn.

Grow tomatoes in pots on patio Small-size tomatoes so popu- lar as accompaniments to cocktails can be grown in pots set on your patio or terrace and picked by your guests as they relax. A number of varieties have been bred especially for use in little space and, so, lend themselves to pot culture. Among these is Pixie, a new hybrid introduced for 1871. This variety grows 14 to 18 inches tall, bears heavy loads of scar- let fruits about inches in diameter which ripen early. These fruits are said to have more of a 'big tomato' flavor than those of other small-fruit- ed varieties. Patio is the tomato to grow in big pots or tubs. It will shoot up to 24 inches in height and usually needs a concealed stake to support each plant. Fruits are medium size, good, bright color and very pretty against the dark green, crinkled leaves. Small Fry, a 1970 award win- ner in the Ail-American Selec- tions trials, bears tomatoes only an inch across and lots of them. Plants of this variety are disease resistant and al- most unbelievable when laden with fruit. The baby of the small-size tomato clan is Tiny Tim use- ful for growing in little pots that you can set on a table to view up close. The plants grow only about 15 inches Ugh and are very compact, while the tomatoes are about the size of cherriei a mere of an Inch in diameter. Patio takes the longest to produce fruits, cnly 5 days more than Small Fry, but about 2 weeks longer than Pixie and a full month more than Tiny Tim. One or more of these little tomatoes, growing sturdily in one or more containers will pep up your patio, intrigue your guests and allow them to savor the flavor of really vine-ripen- ed tomatoes.
