'Hard hif by month's end Battle with Bertha predicted The Alberta Department of Agriculture has reported Lethbridge and Vulcan re- gion rapeseed fields will be hit" by -Bertha army- worms about the end of July. Joe Gurba, bead of the crop protection and pest control section for. the department, reported army worms counts as high as 114 per square yard in some areas. A count of 50 per square yard is con- sidered a heavy infestation. Other areas of the province which will likely be heavily i ni e s t ed include Lacombe, Stettler, Sedgewick, Ver- milion, Wamrigbt, Coronado, Strathmore, Fairview and Grande Prairie, says Mr. Gurba. Blair Shaw, district agricul- turist for the County of Vul- can, told The Herald in a tele- Blood shortage provokes Red Cross donor appecd Red Cross officials in Cal- gary have issued an appeal for blood donations to over- come the normal summer shortage of blood in Southern Alberta and southeastern Brit- ish Columbia. Ken McGregor of the re- gional office, which serves Al- berta from Red Deer south and southeastern B.C., said Friday the shortage is not critical but "we sure don't have any extra."

"We need between 800 and 900 units of blood each week of the year to supply the 50 hospitals in the area. Nor- mally our workers can have a blood donor come in by tele- phoning seven people, but now we have to call between 10 and 15 people to get a blood donor. phone interview Friday that county officials are "sit- ting on their hands waiting.'' Mr. Shaw predicted spray- ing would start in 10 days in his district although the eggs laid by adult moths haven't started hatching yet. He said there is no panic about the pest sines spraying planes are available and adequate stocks of the chemi- cals Lannate and Lorsban are on band. Mr. Shaw said the county officials have already spray- ed acres of rapeseed crops with the two chemicals to control Alfalfa Looper Caterpillars. By Tuesday, another acres will like- ly have been sprayed. He said excellent control of the loopsrs has been achieved by the two chemicals, used at a slightly stronger rate of application than when spray- ing for Bertha armyworms. The Vulcan district was hit by armyworms last year also. Mr. Shaw said the availability of the chemical Lorsban in a liquid form will speed up the spraying opera- tion and add to the safety fac- tor. Although Lannate is now produced in a liquid form, last year the powder form posed a problem for officials. It took a large crew of workers to make sure ade- quate amounts of powder was mixed and ready for spraying. Men v.orked in' shifts to minimize their exposure to the toxic chemical. About 5.000 acres were sprayed for jBertha army- worms last year. Mr. Shaw is anticipating a similar amount this year. In the Lethbridge area. District Agriculturist Mur- ray McLelland reported that the rapeseed'crops are more mature and are less suscep- tible to the armywonn. Once the crop is swathed, the annywnrms leave it z lone.
