With a smile on his face, a twinkle in his eyes and a zip to his step, Frank Hosek spent 45 years doing what he loved most teaching mu- sic to literally thousands of Southern Alberta youngsters. Sunday Lethlmdge's Big Band, under the capable guidance of one of Mr. Ho- sek's most ardent admirers, Nick Kucheran, honored, in concert, a man of deep dedi- cation for the contribution, Hie vast contribution, he has made to musical circles in this district. For many it was a trip down memory lane. For oth- ers it was a new and re- freshing musical experience. For Frank Hosek it was a day he and his family will re- member a day they will cherish. PRESENTATIONS Presentations were made by the Lethbridge Kiwanis Club, which sponsored his winning bands for years, the concert sponsor BPOE Lodge No. 37, the City of Lelhbridge and a group from the Cowley area where this native son launched his career in 1927. One of the highlights of Ihe aflernoon was the warmly- received performance of 12 local youths under the direc- tion and encouragement, as has always been the case during those 45 years, of the guest of honor. An added and certainly welcome attraction was segment featuring The Jazz Scene, B talented and inno- vative Lethbridge quartet FACTS OF LIFE FISH SWIM BACKWARDS?

The Big Band, a unique rganization in its own right, irovides a program of wide ranging from the wing era of the 1930's and 40's and the music of such giants of the day as Glenn Tiller, Count Basic and Voody Herman, to rock and Sossa nova beats of today. PECIAL There was something to please the musical taste of everybody and the 17-man unit, a-delightful mixture of :tcran and youthful artists, rose to the occasion a sne- cial occasion for a 'special man. There is really nothing that matches the full-bodied sound of an orchestra of tins size and appreciation of their efforts was evident through- out the entire afternoon. They enjoyed what they piayed, and they clayed well, ex- tremely well. N "TUNE With Nick Kucheran pro- viding the leadership, and sparked bv soloists Jerry Pokarney, Fred Wood, Vera Dorge. Bill Royle, Jim Noble, Boyd Hunter and Rudy Hani- janac, the band was in tune with the crowd, and the crowd was obviously in tune with it. Snecial mention should be made about the younger members of the band who executed their duties in most professional manner. Music was the theme. With Frank Hosek there is no oth- er way.

Herman's been in the newspaper business 54 years, yet he's never read a newspa- per. The ebullient Lethbridge cir- culation manager of The Alber- tan, who retires this month, has been blind since an accident took his sight when he was an 11-year-old youngster in Winni- peg. Yet just to meet Nat and shake his hand for the first lime is to get the feeling he's never considered bis handicap an ob- stacle. Sitting in his favorite chair in his Jiving room he recounted the highlights of a career that has outlasted some of the news- papers he's worked for. "I started with Uie Winnipeg Free Press, in selling the Prairie Farmer, 'he began. "In 1919 I went to the Van- couver World and I was city circulation manager there until Charlie Campbell sold out to Uie Vancouver Sun Names of other the Seattle Post Intelligencer, Spokane Chronicle, Portland Telegram, Portland Oregonian roll off bis lips as he con- tinues his history, punctuated with chuckles and remarks like, "There's a lot of stories, but I can't tell you them for print." "Charlie Campbell bought the Nat Herman to be honored after Iong1 newspaper career Edmonton Bulletin and wanted me to come up, but I went into business on my own in Vancou- ver. But I won't tell you that part of the story either." T li e n Nat gels down to the basics "I applied at the Al- bertan June 15, 1929. I was im- mediately hired to take charge of reporting and circulation in Lethbridge." And, with the exception of a stint in Calgary to introduce home delivery of the Albertan in Edmonton, and a trip to Mon- treal when lie almost became the national advertising man- ager for the Bell newspaper chain, Nat's called Lethbridge Lack of soil moisture Smash Eleven-year-old Tilly Forczek, 1614 13lli St. N., prepares for a smash ot the tether ball at tions Park on 13th Ave. N.

TO INCREASE CROP YIELDS Irrigation programs ready Hy R1C SWIHART 1 Herald Staff Writer An irrigation scheduling pro- gram designed to increase crop yields is now available lo farm- ers from the AlbcrU Depart- ment of Agriculture in Lelh- bridge. Promoted through the irri- gation division of the depart- ment, the program vail he ser- viced by irrigation specialists throughout the irrigated area of Southern Allxirla, says Dick Hey wood, soil and water spe- cialist with the division. Mr. Heywood siiys reasearcli has shown that proper irriga- tion scheduling cati produce both increased yield and crop qualify. The program can as- sist tlie farmer in making Ihe necessary decisions to obtain these increases.

"Every cop lias certain mois- ture he says, "Irrigation attempts to provide these moisture conditions for as much of the growing season as important because possible. "This is the amount of moisture used on a sunny day can vary fi'bni a low of ,15 of an inch to .3 of an inch." He says any time there is a lack of moisture in the soil, the plant is subjected lo a stress which reduces the yield ol llic crop. "When a farmer sees evi- dence of moisture stress, it usu- ally means irrigation is a week too he says. "This would hurt tlie sugar beet producer He says the program can indicate when irrigation is necessary and the amount of water needed by the plants, This indication reduces t h e chance of either not enough or ,00 much water application, In addition, he says, an CvSti-inaHon of (he amount of soil moisture remaining can be ob-laintjd at almost any time. This allows the farmer to determine when he should start the next water application some days in advance so Ihe necessary preparation can lie because the beet crops are more subject to damage." Through the irrigation scheduling program, an irrigation specialist will arrange a visit in a farm to determine how much moisture the soil can hold and how much is present at the beginning of the growing season.

"When the amount of mois- ture in Ihe soil drops below 50 per cent, the crop is starting to suffer moisture stress and irri- gation should start immediately.

Mr. Hobbs said the soil mois- ture reserve last fall was down and tlie winter precipitation has been far below normal. He stressed that spring mois- ture would prevent any prib- lems but if the lack of precip- itation continues, farmers could be in some difficulties.
