Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta EXPLORE CANADA Call m regarding the many teurt available including Eailtrn and Canada. ART WILUAMS TRAVEL Centre Village Mall 321-3201 The letkbridge Herald SECOND SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, Monday, June 11, 1973 PAGES 11 TO 20 Conditions vary Seeded fields need moisture By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer Southern Alberta's farmers have seed in the ground and now it is up to the weather- man to provide ugently need- ed moisture if crops are to be a success this year. This is the opinion of agri- culturists throughout the south after scattered rain showers have deposited gen- erous amounts of water on some areas while virtually missing others. The Pincher Creek region appears to be best off with winter wheat crops in very good condition, according to Bob Lyons, district agricultur- ist. He said the pasture area has perked up and is in good condition although more rain will be needed for it to con- tinue. Cattle have been turn- ed out to pasture and calving is nearly completed. The barley and oat crops have germinated well and are sprouted although good June rains will be needed for them to grow adequately. Flax and rapeseed crops are about half seeded. To the north in the Willow Jewish holidays asked Plans for a Young Voya- geur program this July and provision for Jewish holidays are two items to be consider- ed this week by public and separate school trustees.

School superintendent Dr. 0. P. Larson said eight days, in addition to normal school holidays, -will be involved in the Jewish proposal. Jewish holidays include August 27; October 11, 12, 15 to 18: and June 3. No provision for these holidays is made in the agreement be- tween public teachers and trustees.

"A teacher could take per- sonal leave for such purpos- es, but he would suffer full loss of Dr. Larson says. Two alternatives are sug- gested for board action: granting Jewish holidays with loss of teacher pay or grant Jewish holidays to teachers and levy substitute pay against the person taking the religious holiday. Separate trustees, who meet Wednesday at p.m., have been asked to pro- vide a small grant for the East Lethbridge Rotary Club's Young Voyageur pro. gram, July 22 to 30. About 20 students, and two escorts, from Springhill, N.S., will be in Lethbridge for the project. A similar number of Leth- bridge students will visit Trois Rivieres, Quebec homes July 2 to 16. Local Rotarians are asking for from the separate board and from public trustees.

CLEAN-OUT SPECIALS ALL BEDDING-OUT PLANTS INCLUDING GERANIUMS ANNUALS, CHOICE GERANIUMS, each (CASH AND CARRY) Creek region, all seeding has been completed and moisture conditions are adequate for the stage of crop growth. Similar conditions exist in the Vulcan area although a severe lack of soil moisture reserves are holding back crop growth, according to several farmers in the reg- ion. In the counties of Leth- bridge and Warner, fanners could use a general rain of one to two inches spread ever three or four days, ac- cording to district agricultur- ist Murray McLelland. He said crops in most parts of both counties are with- standing the dry conditions following good germination. South and east of Leth- bridge, the moisture condi- tions become much more cri- tical. Winter wheat crops are already heading out and they are very short and skimpy. Pasture land is extremely dry. In the County of 40 Mile, moisture conditions are very poor. Delton Jensen, district agriculturist for the region, reports winter wheat and fall rye crops are virtually lost for the year, although the number of acres involved isn't that high. In the Taber region, irriga- tion has solved the drought situation although even the specialty crops could use more rain. About acres of sugar beets have had to be water- ed and, as the dry wind condi- tions persist, more farmers are having to resort to irri- gation, said Gerald Snow, ag- ricultural supervisor for Ca- nadian Sugar Factories Ltd. About half the crop of 000 acres planted in Southern Alberta has been thinned. Mr. Snow said it has been a difficult spring and the plant stands aren't as good as they should be. "But there is nothing wrong with the crop that a good rain wouldn't help." The dry winds are causing damage to the leaves of the young beet plants. Mr. Snow said this year compares to 1963 when the drought didn't break until June 20. In that year, fann- ers received six or seven inches of rain during the rest of the month and they still harvested a good crop of sugar beets.
