Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta lg-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, MartS 28, 1973 Hamilton projectionists hundreds of slides went into Tuesday's show NWMP highlighted slides The old North Mounted Police was the highlight of a EO-minute multi-slide program presented by local students at the Yates Memorial Centre Tu- esday. The Hamillon Trek '73 pro- gram is a project of the Hamil- ton Junior High School to com- memorate the 100th anniver- sary of the force's westward trek. The production showed a con- trast in the development of law and order in Canada with that of the United States. Two presentati f is were watched by students from city schools, while a third show- ing was viewed by the general public. The slide presentation was only part of the Hamilton Trek '73 project. The highlight of the project will be a 10-day auto camping trip that will retrace the steps of the North West Mounted Po- lice in their long march west. Their trek will take them from Fort Dufferin, Man., to Fort Whoop-Up, the same route fol- lowed by the force on the way Irrigation advisory council has 6 Southern Albertans Six Southern Albcrlans have been named lo the province's irrigation council advisory committee.

'Eating cattle won't help' India's green revolution fizzles The so-called "green revolu- tion" in India has fizzled, says a leading Canadian agricultur- alist who has just returned from a tour of that country. Dr. J. E. Andrews, director of the Lethbridge Research Sta- tion and Canadian director of the dryland cultivation tests in India, told The Herald that just a year ago India was thinking of becoming a food exporting coun- try but a drought has brought starvation conditions back to much of the country. Dr. Andrews said in an in- terview that crops developed for growth in India as part of the green revolution were all high yielding varieties var- ieties that need adequate water through irrigation and massive amounts of fertilizer. But the drought snuffed out Ihe irrigation systems, and hence, any chance the program had of succeeding. Even if the Indian people started to eat cattle a laboo in Ihe Hindu religion which the. majority of the population fol- lows Ihe fond problems wouldn't he solved. With a drop in the cattle population, the agriculturalist says, the Indian people would lose a chief source of protein from the milk and Iheir great- est source of power to work their fields. He called it a vicio'Js circle. If the cattle are too abundant, they eat food that should go to the people and yet they can't get along without them. Canada's research team and the special dryland cultivation tests have drawn the apprecia- tion of the scientists and gov- ernment of India, he said. The program, in the second of a five-year objective, in- cludes five Canadian scientisls and technical staff working In conjunction with Indian scien- tists to develop better agricul- tural methods in areas of low moisture levels. Dr. Andrews said many areas of India are being seriously af- fected by drought brought on by lock of monsoon rains for three years. He said the small irrigation systems throughout India, fed by small reservoirs or are suffering because of the gen- eral lack of water, ile said the shortage is so severe there isn't enough water to generate elec- tricity in some areas and dom- estic supplies are limited in others. Ho said this drought situation has been good for the research project because scientists have been able to prove that crop yields can be increased by bet- ter methods. He said researchers are par- ticularly impressed with the Noble drill, manufactured in Nobleford. This implement has tte ability to get the seed to the moisture and then to pack it properly to conserve mois- ture. Dr. Andrews said he Is now in the process of selecting new members from Canada to re- place the original team. He said Hie team will be replaced one by one to ensure a continuity cf research in India. Tracey Anderson of the Leth- bridge station will be relum- ing to (he city in February, 1974. The Indian government has indicated it might be interest- ed in having the Canadian re- search team in India longer than five said Dr. An- drews. As part of the project, six Indian scientists will visit Canada three at Lethbridge and three at Swift Current, Sask. for five months to learn more about research. This is to enable the Indian scien- tists to take over the dryland cultivation tests and to add other research projects that will improve agriculture in India.
