Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THE CHINOOK The Herold, ThortJuy, March 16, Jim Gladstone shining 011 U.S. rodeo circuit By GAUUY ALLISON' Herald StafI Jim Gladstone, (lie J971 Cana- dian calf roping champion, has already picked irp S3, A 57 1 li us far in 1972 rodcoing on (lie tcuyh American circuit. Only competing ni a few of the bigger U.S. shows, Jim has earned enough to place among the top 10 ropers in the world standings. Lending the roping once again this year is many- time world champion, Dean Oliver. Jim will get a chance to add Eo las winnings as well as make B start for his third Canadian roping title when the Canadian kicks off with a new Indoor rodeo at Calgary, March t2 to 25. This will be followed Edmonton's big indoor show, March 25 lo April 1. Other Canadian cowboys al- ready showing well m this year's standings ijiclude saddle oronc riders Ivan Daincs, Me I ITylaml and Kenny McLe a n wiiile hardback riders Dale Trotticr and Allan Thorpe arc also sitting in the lop 10. An ex-Canadian and all-time rodeo favorite, Marty Wood, is high in the world standing. His to date puts him in third spot. Marty now calls Fowler, Colorado home. HOLLYWOOD CALLS Rodeo is a thrilling .sport and now Hotly wood has seen lit to make a reported "high-class1 motion picture about Hie rugged sport. The film, J. W. Coop, stars academy award winner Cliff Robertson and also fea- tures former world saddle bixmc champion Dennis Rein- crs and Negro bull rider Myr- tis nightman, Myrtis is one of the best bull ride rs i n the business bu t it would be sole to say he is also one of the unluckicst He turned: in a ride at a past B.C. rodeo lhat many of the March proclaimed as Honey Month March is honey month in AV bcirla, where approximately 40 per cent of Ihe annual national honey crop is produced. Sandi Hammer, home econo- mist with the department of ag- riculture's information branch, says there are three types of honey available in the stores: >iq uid honey, c rea in cd honey aud honey in the ccinb. The liquid honey is ideal for cooking and baking. Creamed honey is liquid honey which lias been seeded with fine honey crystals ami stored under con- trolled conditions until com- pletely granulated. It is deJi- oiwia as a sprc ad on bread, fcoast and buns. Honey in the comb is consid- ered a delicacy and is usually eaten with bread or toast. As a general rule, the darker the color of the honey, the stronger its flavor. Clover and rffalfa honey have Ihe mildest flavors, while buckwheat honey has the strongest. According to Miss Hammer, cinnamon honey is now avail- able in grocery stores. It is a fairly new product, and is par- ticularly good on toast and cin- namon buns. Most of the honey sold through retail outlets has pasteurized lo prolong its shelf life. Although the pasteurizing process destroys the yeasts which cause fermentation, it does not affect the color or fla- vor of the honey. As a general rul e, h onc-y be stored in a warm dry place rather fhan in the refrig- erator. The optimum granula- tion temperature is 57 degrees, so lo prevent granulation keep the temperature well above 57. Honey ea n also be frozen. Freezing keeps it liquid, and solidified1 honey can be liquified by placing tbe container in warm (not hot) water. Its del- icate flavor will be injured if it is overheated. When using honey for cooking or baking, you can prevent it from sticking to measuring cup by greasing the cup with butter or warming it, Miss Hammer said. She also points out a ijiblfApoonful of liquid honey im- proves Ihe flavor of cake mixes, and that honey makes a good "topping" for ice cream. Honey mixed with an equal amount of butter pins the addition of cin- namon is popular as a spread. Honey is also used to glaze me-at, You can make your Eas- tor ham particularly attractive UBS year by add ing a honey glaze. To do this, remove the ham from the oven about half an hour before it is cooked and score the top in diamond shapes, using a sharp knife. Then put a clove in the mid- dle of each diamond and brush the wlwle ham with honey be- fore putting it back in the oven If a deep, rich brown color is required, brush the ham with more honey. Finally, serve it with a gar- nish of broiled canned apricot halves and parsley.

Myr- tis, however, scored a goose egg. It seemed his free hand liad slapped t he bull H spl i t second before the horn, thus disqua lif y i ng hi m. Those ere Hie breaks of tlw game. Speaking of breaks, Peter Bruised Head, of Standoff, is at it again. Pcle spent a great deal oi tost season wrapped up in a leg cast after a Brahma bull took a quick walk on him. This year he was competing in the wrestling at the Houston, Texas Astrodome when he snapped a Iwtie in one of IBS legs. There has been no report as (a whether it was the same leg (he bull enjoyed or not. CONTRACT BASIS? Tommy Bows made an inter- esting statement while attend- ing the recent Lethbridge Kins- men Dinner when he said he felt cowboys would be pnid for their services under a contract basis by tlie end of the decade. As you know, a cowboy re- ceives no guaranteed wage. Not only does he take a chance of not gelling paid, but Ite also has to pay an entry fee in order to compete. Tom feels that this will go by the boards, due mainly to the continued growlh of Ihe sport ant! Ihe need for top names at the belter rodeos. This would nceessitEite a con- tract, whereby a cowboy would agree to compete at a certain rodeo, or follow a certain cir- cuit, for a set amount of money. The danger in this type of would that, like so many oilier professional ath- letes, once the salary is set the competitor would become com- placent. Tho edge would he taken off competitor hav- ing to give his all every time out as he is going to get paid whether he gets bucked off w completes the ride anyway. Rodeo is a wild, exciting sport, and one of the reasons is lire extreme competitive spirit that comes from not knowing whether you'll go home with money in your pocket. Very few cowboys would w ant 1 he change and the general feeling is that it would hurt a great sport. Jim Glacfslone starring in U.S. rodeo circuit Carseland Dam is ivell under way With initial diversion of the Bow River accomplished, the first major ph'ase in reconstruc- tion of Carselaud Dam has been completed, according lo K. B. Wells, PFRA's project engineer, ill charge of the construction program. The normal Bow River chan- nel has been blocked by means of a cofferdam, and the flow diverted away from (he area where Ihe main dam will be lo- cated. The dam is situated 25 miles southeast of Calgary and is the principal structure for the di- version of water, through a sys- tem of canals and reservoirs, lo the Bow River Irrigation Projict, which is operated by Vhe PraJrio Farm Rehabilita- tion Administration. The m a in eon crele overflow weir type dam is 500 feet long. In addition, there are feet (A earth embankments. In order to be ready for this Alberta has been profiting from foreign trade deals Albc-Ha's chief marketing commissioner, Harry Hargrave, reports that a number of profit- able trade developments con- cerning Alberta products have taken place during the past monlh, One of these involves coking coal contracts. According to Mr. Hargrave, five to 10-year con- tracts, representing up to 000 tons of coal a year, are being negotiated by the Roman- ian consulate in Montreal and an Alberta company. Initial exports ranging be- tween and Ions are being considered for 1973. Mr. Hargrave also reports that a Canadian packing com- pany is in the process of nego- tiating the sale of swine breed- ing sleek with China. The ani- mals would probably be shipped via air transport. Canadian banking infc-re.sfs have recently contacted Mr. Margrave's office on behalf of Greek importers who arc inter- ested in feeder calves. The en- quiry concerns both beet and dairy calves weighing between 250 and 400 pounds. Mr, Tfargrave says that a French firm is presently negoti- ating with an Edmonton firm to build a onishing plant in one of the major rapeseed production areas in Ihe Peace River region. Recent discussions with the international credit manager of a Canadian bank reveal optimis- tic possibilities for trade with developing countries, Mr. Har- grave sav5. This bank will provide Ihe funds necessary to ensure ihfit Alberta producers get paid for their products, and urxk-r- lakc credit arrangements collections on behalf of (lie im- porling countries or Mr. Hargrave feels {his de- velopment is an indication thai Albert a sliould be exploring the import requirements of develop- ing countries in various parts erf the world. Federal department of indus- try, trade and commerce offi- cials indicate that a substantial number of Alberta firms have applied to exhibit products at the Canadian Trade Fair in Pe- king next August. Importers from this province are also hoping to visit Peking nt the time of the fair to assess import opportunities for prod- ucts being made in the Peoples1 Republic of China. Twto members of the Alberta Hereford Association visited tho United Kingdom recently lo dis- cuss exhibiting 12 (op quality Alberta Hereford bulls at tho British Hoyal Show in July. This show attracts buyers from all over the world, and it is anticipated lhat (he hulls will be sold after the show, year's high spring fknvs. con- slniclion work began in Janu- ary of this year. According to Mr. Wells, about 50 men and approximately 30 pieces of heavy equipment have been working two srlnfts to bring about diversion at this time. The cofferdam will al- low f ound a lion excav at ir.n n nd embankm ent construe1 i on to proceed in relalively dry con- ditions, although cor i-nioua pumping will be required to keep Ihe weir foundation area de-watered. IN CHARGE The department of regional economic expansion I h.-ough PFRA, is responsible for con- struction including the cng'ncer- ing and supervisory scr vi ces. The Carseland Dam lirs ex- isted since 1910, and tins under- gone many modifications and extensive repairs since that limo. Now the embankment is being reconstructed and n new concrete weir is being built on the south shore a short distance to thn southeast of the existing weir. Cana da purchased llw Bow River Project, including this dam, in 1949 from the Canada Land a nd Irrigation Com pa ny, and after a major progrnm of reconstruction and extension in the early 19oOTs, has lha project for resettlement of farmers from, sub-marginal prairio areas. There is currently acres of land under irrigation in the area served by Cnrse- hind Dani. Water for irrigation of '.his land in 1972 is already stored in the Lake McGregor and vers Reservoirs which are in- tegral parts of the project, The Carseland conslruc-'ion is scheduled for completion in January 1973, AIT> According lo the U.SV mcnt of agriculture f armors: whose operations crippled by such natural dis- asters as floods, droughts, and tornadoes received re-cord level s of emergency aid from the U.S. department of agriculture in the fiscal year Jtiit ended.
