Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE LETH4RIDGE HERALD Saturday, July 21, 19 3 Ask Andy The ptarmigan Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Mar- garet Darling, age 12, of Chamblee, Ga., for her ques- tion: Where does the ptarmigan ori- ginate? In case you wonder what to call him, the first letter is si- lent. The proper pronounciation fe "TAR-mi-gan." But let's not forget to include the "P" when we write his name. The ptarmi- gan is a plump ground bird'who originates in tundra type terri- tory. Some of his kinfolk are at home farther south, usually in the cool meadows between lofty peaks. All ptarmigans are prepared to cope with long, bard winters, and most of them change their plumage to match the seasons. Today in history By THE CANADIAN PRESS July 21, 1973 Pope Clement. XHt de- creed the abolition of the Jesuit order 200 years ago years of pressure from political leaders in France, Spain and Portugal. Historians now think the campaign united radicals and con- servatives who hoped sup- pressing the Jesuits would appease the mood for re- form. Russia refused to put down the order and the next Pope, Pius VI, reac- knowledged it in 1783. The order was formally re-es- tablished in 1814 as a schol- arly and missionary body.

Former Alberta man killed MOOSE JAW (CP) Roy Gustav Johnson, 40, of the Moose Jaw district, formerly of Red Deer, was killed when the half ton truck he was driving was in collision with another half-ton near Keeler, about 30 miles northwest of Moose Jaw. The driver of the other truck was not injured. The GaHiformes bird order was named for the barnyard chicken. It includes the phea- sant, the grouse and the Thanks' giving turkey, also the proud peacock and the charming ptar- migan. Actually the ptarmigan is a grouse-type ground bird who usually changes his attire to cope with life in colder cli- mates. He looks somewhat like a fat chicken who traded the red crown on her head for a pair of fur stockings. The willow ptarmigan is at home on the Arctic tundra of both Europe and North Ameri- ca. Where high, cold mountain tops are available, he ranges as far south as Spain, Quebec and British Columbia. Through the summer his speckled brown plumage blends into the earthy colors of the tundra. In fall, he molts and grows a white outfit to match the tundra snows though the male bird keeps his rusty brown neck feathers. Like all ptarmigans, summer and winter, he wears furry feathers on his legs and feathery boot- ies on his toes. The white-tailed ptarmigan is at home in high marshy mea- dows among the Northern Rock- ies. Visitors to Glacier Nation- al Park try to catch a glimpse of him. But he is a rare bird and hard to spot, because he blends so well with the scenery. His summer plumage is spec- kled with brown and beige, with a white tail. His winter out- fit is snowy white, accented by his black beak and his bright black eyes. Not all ptarmigans favor tun- dras or marshy meadows among the snow-capped peaks. The rock ptarmigan enjoys life on high, dry rocky slopes above the timberland. His summer plumage is freckled with dark browns. This changes to winter white hi the fall. The fourth member of the ptarmigan clan is not a seasonal turncoat. He is the Scottish grouse, alias the red grouse. He lives on the fra- grant, wind-blown Scottish high- lands, where snowfalls are less severe. His all-season outfit is a heathery blend of rusty red- brown. Wherever he lives, the plump ptarmigan is beset by hungry foes. In the parks he is pro- tected by law from human hunters. But foxes, birds of prey and other predators take a heavy toll of the birds and their nests. The nest is a hollow on the ground, lined with dry leaves and a few feathers. There are four and sometimes as many as eight eggs. The wide-awake chicks can run for cover as soon as they hatch. After ten days they can fly. Large broods are necessary be- cause so many eggs and chicks are devoured by predators. Questions asked by chlldreu of Herald readers shonld be mafled to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765.

QfLAtfPf S Strike cuts newsprint deliveries VANCOUVER (CP) Daily and weekly newspapers have been advised oy Macmittan Bloe- del Ltd. that "it would be pru- dent to expect reduced deliveries of newsprint and you should exert every effort to conserve your present newsprint sup- ply." The letter, signed by Cana- dian newsprint sales manager Alan Black, said the company has no basis for estimating how long its Port Albemi, B.C., mill wffl be closed by a strike of electrical workers and office and technical employees. The mill, which produces about 25 per cent of B.C. news- print, was closed July 4 by a walkout of United Paperworkers International Union. When the paperworkers agreed to a new contract July '10 the strike by electricians and office workers began. The warning about reduced newsprint supplies has been blamed by Hal Straight, pub- lisher of the weekly North Shore Citizen in North Vancouver, on newspapers in the United Calgary conference, says Pre- mier Allan Blakeney, who pre- dicted it would be a historic turning-point in the develop- ment of his province. "All we ask as Western Cana- dians is that we get the same break that some other parts of Canada have been getting since Confederation. The days are over when Western Canada can be looked on merely as the sup- plier of raw materials for the factories of Central Canada." The premier says that, at present, most of the West's ag- ricultural products are shipped elsewhere to be processed, mainly because of freight rates that "discriminate" i against movement of manufactured products from the West. "We are suggesting in the firmest possible terms that per- haps the best vehicle for re- medying the regional disparities is the transportation system of Canada." Mr. Blakeney's New Demo- cratic Party government, how- ever, has been most involved with development of specific proposals on agriculture to be presented to the Calgary confer- ence. The Alberta has been preparing the trans- portation proposals while Mani- toba handled the regional devel- opment paper and British Co- lumbia the proposals for re- gional financial institutions. All four provinces, however, have consulted with each other on the proposals and agreed they will be presented as a united demand. U'L ABNER-By Al Capp THASS TOTHER. THING ACHEAPUWG AIQ'U.

The three Hercules aircraft and their crews have been working 16-hour days, including up to 12-hours flying time a day, a department news release said. The crews usually have about an hour to look around the small towns in the sub-Sahara desert areas into which they fly the supplies the release said. Crews have expressed concern about malnutrition, dehydration and lack of resistance to dis- in the nomadic people.
