Dennis Stretch said though the problem has not yet reached serious spraying now might help the recent situation and be of benefit for 1975. He said much of next year's conditions will depend on what kind of weather next spring brings. The early growth of grasshoppers this spring was slowed by wet weather but high temperatures in June reversed the trend. Mr. Stretch said this year's hopper infestation is riot as heavy as had been forecast and the ideal time for spraying was earlier when the grasshoppers were at a younger age. A lack of rain causing a hazard for grain crops has been compounded by dry winds .keeping moisture away from the according to_ an Alberta Wheat Pool spokesman. The spokesman said in some areas the crops are deteriorating rapidly because of the shortage of rain. He said it is essential the crops in the Purple Springs area get rain now. Cool weather in the Milk River district is apparently saving the crops from but a lack of moisture has contributed to short heads on early seeded crops.

Less well managed eating establishments are sometimes closed by the Chinook and Chief Mountain health units until their owners restore conditions under which clean food can be he said in an interview published in Saturday's Herald. According to James a public health inspector who routinely checks restaurants for the Chinook mosl restaurant owners bring trou- ble on themselves. Open food stored on floors in and out of refrigerators is a constant problem. problem here is that walk-in refrigerators are often too small. On inspection we tell them to remove ob- jects from the floor but they just set them right back there again. problem is that growths of mold often start to grow in the refrigerators this is unsightly but not Mr. Burger says. The control of rodents and cockroaches no longer presents a problem like it once did. have condemned entire buildings in the past.

One point the health unit is extremely stringent about is what they call the time temperature factor. is the amount of time bacterial organisms require to multiply in a favorable temperature. much of the public doesn't realize is that a -place can be dirty but as as the food temperatures are in the proper there is little danger of Mr. Burger explains. Small amounts of harmful bacteria are easily negated by a person's own antibodies. Regulations stipulate food temperatures be maintained below 40 degrees farenheit for cold foods and above 150 degrees for hot foods. Dr. Adler explained these temperatures are sufficient to inhibit bacteria growth but will not kill all the organisms. if food is left at room temperature for even two the organisms may multiply from to 10 billion if conditions are ac- commodating. By then refrigeration or heating may be too he says. Another Mr. Burger points is that often food preparers and servers continue to work with improperly treated cuts and hangnails. have ordered these people to quit work because they often carry staphlycocci organisms which produce tox- ins. enough of these are allowed to grow they could be Mr. Burger ex- plains.
