Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE TRAP CLUB will hold an .Easter ham shoot Sunday starting at I p.m. The shoot is open to anyone and spectators are welcome. The snack bar will be open during the day. Initial entry o! Jive squads will .give non winner a free ham. Could be some sliffer competition developing at the local club. Dr. Duncan Brown shot a 25 x 25 last weekend. His wife is an ardent shooter also. With Bob Hobbs of Calgary here on weekends to help run the newly opened Lethbridge Plainsman in downtown Lethbridge, competition should get even keener if Bob decides to take up shooting here. He is one of the better shots in Calgary. AND, THE EARLY BIRDS are back in southern Alberta. There's perhaps nothing quite like the honk of the big Canadas to announce the arrival of spring. It's a pleasing sound to bird watchers anil the Canada is among the first birds heralding the arrival of the new season. Unlike most other birds, the Can- ada mates for life. Bald and golden eagles follow a similar pattern. Our spring watch has so far revealed gophers, Canadas, swans, various ducks, killdeer, avocets, blackbirds, robins and meadowlarks. This doesn't mean however, that we shouldn't still be expecting some blustery weather. These spring blows can come up rather suddenly and leave equally as fast. Depending on temperatures and wind direction, they're bound to leave snow or rain behind. Nevertheless, spring is here by the calendar and the migration patterns of the birds. LAW S.J. RES. J. 117 authorizes the president of the U.S. to proclaim the fourth Saturday in each September as National Hunting and Fishing Day throughout Hie country. The date, reported on favor- ably by a special senate committee, was promoted by the National Wildlife Federation. It is to recog- nize the aesthetic values, health and recreation vir- tues of hunting and fishing. The special date was passed by the senate without amendment. NATIONAL WILDLIFE WEEK In Canada this year is about a month away. The bill, or act Parliament, annually sets the week aside on which April 10, falls. The act is in tribute to the late Jack Miner. Sole purpose of the week is strictly educational. Loading sportsmen clubs and natural history soci- eties, such as the Jack Miner Foundation, is asking the schools, teachers, priests, preachers, rabbis and service clubs to teach and preach on Canada's great outdoors. April 10, was the birthday of the late Jack Miner. AGRICULTURAL WASTES make a larger con- trihution by far to the pollution of a river than do municipal wastes, according to Dr. Douglas Wallace at the University of Iowa. Using systems analysis techniques, he found that farm runoff during rainfall caused serious depressions in dissolved oxygen levels In a river, with the effects of municipal and indus- trial wastes being negligible. Farm run-off was found to affect the reaches of a river as long as SO miles for periods up to 24 hours. Now, cfan't forget: Ihe takes in southern Alberta are breaking up very nicely. Could bt any time that you may be into a whopping catch. Minor hockey Ewald Granson and Dan Kurgwall each scored twice as the Maroons belted the Cana- dians 6-1 in Bantam A action Thursday.

Resolution designed by NBA, ABA NEW YOBK (AP) A reso- lution designed to stop players from jumping between the Na- tional Basketball Association and the American Basketball Association was adopted by the NBA's board of governors Thursday. Commissioner Walter J. Ken- nedy said that at a special meeting of the governors, it was decided that a player signing with an NBA team after leaving an ABA club would not be al- lowed to until the validity of his old contract had been de- termined by the courts. Kennedy said such court tests for contracts "could very well take a long time." He said that from now on "a player couldn't ?lay while decisions were still pending."

FEAR LETDOWN There is a danger that the Ca nadians might go flat and Me lesctmk is concerned going into the final round. The top four teams in ttw eight-country round-robin play off in a single event Saturday, "We've got to curl hard for those last two games. Winning tlie round robin with a 7-0 mark doesn't mean anything If wa blow it Saturday." And the onus is on Ihe Mani- toba rink. Canada has won the world curling championship 11 times since 1959 and has not losl the title since 1967. The Meleschuk rink Is two games up on the field going into today's last draw.
