The 1973-74 development pro- posal for West Lelhbridge will then go to council April 9. "All the financing has been is ready to Deputy Mayor Cam Barnes said Friday. "We've got a positive outlook. West Lethbridge lots moved slowly when they were first put up for sale last year and the feeling now is the city open- ed the area up too early. Now, with the 6th Ave. S. bridge and CMHC financing approved, the mood has changed. In other city affairs, coun- cil met in a special session Friday at p.m. to give first reading to a bylaw authorizing borrowing million to build the 1975 Win- ter Games Sportsplex. The special meeting was called to speed up the Sporis- plex fimelable to meet a May 1 construction start date. A two- week period is required be- tween the first and second and third readings of a bylaw. Dead cattle in river More dead cattle have been found in southwestern Alberla rivers, according to the fish and wildlife branch. Three head have been found in a group in the Waterton River, one-half to three-quar- ters of a mile upstream from the Waterton Hutterite Colony, southwest of the Palmer Ranch headquarters, a wildlife official said. The matter has been report- ed to Dr. Kurt Adler, medical health officer for the Clu'nook Health Unit. Earlier this month the fish and wildlife branch reported three dead heifers in the St, Mary River near Cai-ds'on. Dr. Adlcr was notified and the cat- tle were eventually removed by the owner after Dr. Adler threatened legal action. By R1C SWIHART Herald Staff Writer Growth inhibitors extract- ed from the leaves, branches and pods of rapcseed plants may damage cereal or oilseed crops grown on the same land the following year. This residue from rapeseed plants affects a larger variety of crops than any other grown on tile Prairies, according to a study done by Jack Horricks, Bob Kasfing and Urban Pitt- man, scientists at the Leth- bridge Research Station. Mr, Piltman says research lias shown that large quantities of rapeseed residue in a Held can reduce by five to 10 per cent the heighth, plant weight and sesd yield of .wheat; oat and barley crops planted on stubble the following year. Tests have shown that affect- ed cereal plants, particularly spring wheat, are slow to ger- minate, lack vigor, remain short and stunted, mature slowly and produce low yields. Even the roots are short and stunted. says several ap- proaches to the problem of toxic rapeseed residues could or have been taken, including: Trying to develop a toxin- free strain of rapeseed. Trying to develop crops tolerant to the toxic residue. Trying to develop meth- ods of farming that will reduce cr eliminate the toxicity of the residue before another crop is planted on the same ground Ihe following year. All varieties All rapeseed varieties tested at the research station, includ- ing all common commercial varieties and many experimen- tal strains grown in Alberta, Saskatchewan, the Northwest Territories and Call form's, have shown toxic residues. This means none of the vari- eties appear to be suitable tox- in free parents for future breeding programs, says Mr. Pittman. The growth habit of some crops makes it less susceptable to the residue than others, "For example seedlings of winter wheat and fall rye initi- ally may be badly stunted by the toxin and yet (hey seem to overcome the effects of the growth inhibitor and become highly tolerant of says Mr. Pittman. Tolerance or susceptibility of a crop to the rapeseed toxin differs aming varieties of the crops. The following list of crops, followed by the varieties of the crop is arranged in order of tolerance to damage when grown in the greenhouse and laboratory. Mr. Pillman says Martin Bros.

Some benefit Mr. Pittman says there is some beneficial effect from the residue also. In the laboratory, seeds of such weeds as redroot pigweed, lamb's quarters and wild oals fail io germinate and grow when moistened with a residue extract. "Some farmers in this area actually seed crops in a field [hat the previous year grew rapeseed for the basic reason that some mid oat control is achieved says Mr. Pittman. Another beneficial effect u a partial control of root rot dis- ease in a cereal crop that fol- lows on the rapeseed stubble. Mr. Pittman says some re- searchers have suggested that in the future toxic rapeseed residue may provide a natural biological control for certain weeds and plant diseases. The biggest problem in com- batting the toxic effect of the residue is that it is very stable and is readily soluable in water and some alcohols, says Dr. Kasiing. Some farmers have reported reduced effect of the residue on crops when the stubble had been' burned im- mediately after harvest. Farming methods to reduce or eliminate the toxic effect of the residue have been tried success. Since damage is largely con- fined to the area behind the combine where the straw nor- mally tails, it is advisable to equip all harvesters with straw choppers and spreaders to scatter the residue as thinly and uniformly as possible. Nitrogen used Crops planted on land im- mediately following a rapeseed crop generally respond to ap- plied nitrogen. But researchers don't know whether the applied nitrogen reduces the toxicify of rapeseed residues. Although rapeseed uses of sulphur in its growth pattern, the shortage or adequacy of sulphur in the soil seems to have little effect on the toxicity of the rapeseed residues. Mr. Pittman says current re- search should help farmers to select and grow crops that are j least affected by the residue. A 23-year-old Cardston man pleaded guilty in provincial court Friday of assault causing bodily harm, and was remand- ed to April 6 for sentencing. The court was told that on Thursday at about 8 p.m., Irvin Heavy Runner came up behind "an old man with a white cane" waiting for the light to change, at the corner of 3rd Ave. and 5th St. S. Heavy Runner grabbed Fred Burton, of Cardston, by the shoulders and threw him to the pavement. As a result of the attack, Mr. Burton, who is 86 years old, re- ceived broken arm, and stitches to the nose and hands.
