Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 _ THB lETHBRIDGB HERAll) -56 FARM HELP 14, 1970 NOTICE To Speo Tree Gr or 327-3504. Battered By Raiii CALGARY (CP) Heavy rain fell for the fourth straight day today, but the weather of-ice predicts the sun will shine Wednesday. A total of 4.04 inches of rain has fallen on the city since Friday, well above the 3.45 inch average for all of June. The deluge has piled up an above average string of minor traffic accidents, caused minor flooding and played havoc wi'Ji sewers and telephone service. Alberta Government Telephones said some residents in the northwest suburb of Bow-ness have been without service since Saturday afternoon. At one point as many as 900 phones on the 288 exchange were out of service. Repair crews worked all night and the figure was down to 100 early today with an AGT spokesman hopeful full service Mill be restored by late tonight. AGT has spent more than in efforts to repair damage caused when water, backing up ft-om a storm sewer, flooded telephone cables. Crews have worked since vat-urday night pumping and drying connections. The city engineering department, hit hard by overflowing sewers and minor flooding during the weekend, rep o r t s "everything under control."

"The weird thing about trees is that they don't flower for 20 to 30 years and one beech common to Europe and North America doesn't flower for 140. "This means a researcher would be an old man before he was able to do any work that spanned more than one generation of trees." SPEED GROWTH To overcome the problem, the research group is trying to induce the trees to produce seed sooner by injecting or spraying them with chemicals and controlling their environment. "We know it's possible, because we've done it on several species. We're dying to push it into others such as the Douglas fir." The chemical used is gibberellin, small quantities of which affect growth in plants and in some cases bring on flowers. It was discovered in 1926 as a byproduct of a rice fungus attacking crops in Japan. This gibberellin and others since discovered do not affect Canada's chief lumber- and pulp-producing trees. "It's sort of a Parkinson's Law that the less useful a tree is, the easier it is to induce it to flower." Some scrubby cypress trees which normally produce seed within four or five years have been persuaded by gibberellin to flower 88 davs after germination. Dr. Pharis said all plants have the chemical in some form and he is attempting to isolate it from commercial trees. The concentration is about two parts in LOOK FAR AHEAD He said the manner In which the gibberellin affects the tree is not known, and this is another of the research objectives. If Dr. Pharis locates the gibberellin he is after, the research would move into the forests for a look at up to trees. About 20 specimens "which are really everything you want in a tree" would be located and crossbred. Their seed would be collected and germinated, About 10 per cent of the seedlings would be superior to the parents. These would be grown for two to three years to gain the physical strength necessary to support cones, then induced to flower. The process would be repeated until a fast-growing, hardy, tall tree was developed. "If I were to have a breakthrough this year, in 10 years there would be nurseries producing superior trees for reforestation." These trees could grow up to 30 per cent faster and in parts of Alberta where 80 to SO years are required before MEMORIAM ROBINSON In loving WANTED: Drlv-r salesman with "0" driver It-cense for Welding Supply House.
