Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta FHIDAY, JUNE THE 1ETHBRTDGE HERALD PXGE NINE The Farmers1 Corner SAVE THOSE FARMS FOR POSTERITY If it were not for the top six inches of soil there would be no food to feed the -scorlc's two billion people. If by any chance the soil refused to function -we'd all be dead a couple of years. Ilsley Refers To Breakdown Of Tax Conference Are Downward BACKGROUND OF BUDGET AS PRESENTED BY HON. ILSLEY It behooves us, therefore, to see to it that -we do not allow our soils! the of to wear out, to blow away or so become sterile. It would be the greatest disaster cf all time if we did. And K can happen. Millions of acres of the world's earth surface have become deserts, sterile for the purpose of plant growth, during the past couple of centuries. It can happen here. It requires the best kind-of farming to maintain a farm so that it can be handed down 10 the next, generation as good or better than the owner found it. That should be our objective. It's everybody's job to -work at it sincerely. OTTAWA, June Minister Ilsley referred briefly to the Dorninion- cerierence in his budge: speech iasi night. Before outlining reasons why prosperity and employment of the! auctions although some of the re- Servant of Agriculture Lethbridge Experimental Station The transformation of treeless prairie to a land and the a flat, i tilizers to use j rates of application as well garden surrounded homes is j hes: methods of application, the result of many years of workj and planning. Human nature isj tied so closely to trees and flowers! that, until these are part of our j surroundings, most- of us do not feel at home. This has been a. guiding principle of the Horticultural Divi- sion of the Lethbridge Experi- mental Station since its inception in 190S. Likewise, the need for the pro- ducts of the garden in a balanced, satisfactory diet has been realized. The development of garden prac- tices suitable to both dry and irri- gation farming has been a major feature of the work. As a result of this work hardly a farm, village, or city home exists without a garden that yields bom pleasure and sus- tenance to say, nothing of the recre- ation afforded' bv gardening activi- ties. In more recent years horticulture has become a. commercial under- taking in the Irrigated areas and the work of the Horticultural Divi- sion has expanded to keep pace the problems that have de- veloped. Testing of varieties of horticultural crops in order to find those best suited to our conditions has been a. constant feature of the work and as a result definif recommendations can be given on this subject. Closely 'allied to this work have been breeding projects and selec- tions to produce new and improved varieties for this area.' Foremost among these are projects on com and tomato breeding. Tomatoes constitute a crop that most people like but for which no fully suitable existed for Southern Al- berta, conditions. The breeding work with tomatoes is far from completed but one special selec- tion, L3700, looks now as though ifc may ba nearly what we have been looking for.

He was brought up a garden and as his origin was in one of the garden countries of the world, i-e., Den- mark, he has horticulture in his blood. After comuleting his high school education he went to the Olds School of Agriculture and from there to the University of Alberta. He received his S.Sc. in 1945 and after a short spell in the army re- turned to the university for a year of post graduate studies. Through- out his university work he special- ized in horticulture and added prac- tical background through summer employment at the Olds School of Agriculture, ths university, and the esoerimental station! Swift Cur- rent, Saskatchewan. Thus he has a wide background of training and experience to apply to development of "horticultural" work in this terri- tory. placing matrices of non-advertis- the budget of last October. news pictures from the United] i on the free list.

Then they are in discomfort and rub, scrape, and scratch in an attempt to get rid of the cause. In Western Canada the two causes are the sheep ted (usually called the sheen tick) and the sag'e tick. The sage tick is seasonal in its attack on sheep, starting to infest sheep about -the middle of March and continuing on till about July. The period of infestation varies with seasonal conditions and the seveiity of infestation also varies considerably from year to year. Unfortunately no practical methods of control have beea developed an_d until this is done the sheep will have to continue to suffer.

Fortunately satisfac- tory control has been developed on a practical basis. The common method of controlling the sheep ked is by dipping the sheep as least once each year. Several satisfac- tory commercial dipping solutions are available and if used properly will give good results. Some variation occurs in the time of dipping. Some producers favor dinping shortly after shearing while others prefer to wait until some wool has grown after shear- ing. If sheep are infested heavily with keds dipping should take place soon after shearing. In fact, in cases of heavy infestation the sheep should be dipped twice at an interval of about two weeks. When dipping is practised shortly after shearing IMS dip is required than when dipping takes place later in the season. Dipping usually is not a pleasant job for either man or beast and often leads to injury to some of the sheep. It occurred lo members of the Dominion Experimental Sta- tion staff that some other method would be more desirable and dur- ing the last two seasons a system of applying the dipping solution with a power sprayer has been under test. While all the kinks haven't been taken out of the method yet it does have real possi- bilities and you will hear more about it as time goes on. FRANKFURT. June 23. W> One way or another, the aost-war followers of Adolf Hitler still play a non-too-dangerous game of ridi- culing the American occupation power and trying to gain Germans back to the fuehrer's philosophy. Though German night clubs j noticeably those which cater to i curious find ifc "profitable" to caricature Adolf in little skits, Hitler's post-war agents occasionally inject dramatic anti-Allied propaganda, in strictly German movie houses. For instance, an official United States army report relates occa- sional efforts to cast doubt on Al- lied-made films designed to show Germans the horrors of Gestapo Chief Heinrich Eimmler's murder factories.

That is what happens when everything js taken oat and nothing put back. Summer- fallow and grain with no live- stock and no rotation includ- ing grasses and clovers will lower the fertility and vitality of our soil, and the foods we produce from them will be- come less nutritious and less filled with vitamins year by year. What this country needs is an unlimited livestock market which will make it possible to balance grain growing with stock which will eat the grass and the clovers and return manure to the land. Such a program will build soil rather than ruin it. The trouble is we have no sure market for live- stock and so we go on produc- ing grain as our chief cash crop. And each crop of grain removed so much fertility, so much minerals, so much humus from the soil. It is well to take stock of this ar.d of the growing menace of soil drifting. Decreasing fer- tility leads to increasing soil drifting. We need a means to bala.nce our farming economy livestock, and that means need markets for more live- stock. MEDICINE HAT. June I Two confessions signed by Sgt.- Maj. Bruno Perzenowski were pre- jssnted as evidence by W. D. Gow, crown prosecutor. Thtasday at the Alberta" Supreme Court trial of Per- zenowski. one of four German pris- oners charged with the murder of a fellow-Drisoner. Karl at the Me'dicine Hat internment camp Sept. 10. 1944. Perzenowski admitted that with- out having been directly ordered to do so, he had given the order to have Lehman removed, ana he ex- pressed the desire that full respon- sibilitv for the murder be placed on him and that those he had ordered to assist m the hanging be not blamed. The two statements had been given civ the accused to Detective Corporal Bull. R.C.M.P., investigat- ing the murder, and were accepted as admissacle evidence by Chief Justice W. K. Howson. after he was sarisrieci that they were made by Perzeaowski voluntarily. FOLLOWED LAW When undertaking the deed he was acting according to the Ger- man militarv law, he confessed, that hfr had summoned Sgt. Willi Mueller and Sgt. Walter Wolfe, also charged with the mur- der, and informed them that Leh- marin would be sent for. At the room. Lehmann was jump- ed upon and beaten by others, the! confessions revealed. Cross-examined by defence coun- sel. G. E. A. Kice. Cpl. Bull said it was his belief that the accused had considered he was acting accord- to German military law when ordering the hanging.
