Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, MAY 16, 1946 No Stock Piles B.C. LOGGERS' STRIKE THREATENS TO HALT BUILDING BOOM HERE British Columbia's strike of 37.000 loggers and sawmill is ex- pected ta put the brazLe on Leth- bndge's record building boom some time next ireek and if the strike is prolonged a complete halt in build- ing acmity may result here. Those -were expressed to the Herald today bv local lumber yard operators as' they begai explaining to contractors and other customers thai many commitments they made on orders cannot be fulfilled un-.il shipments of lumber are recened. Struggling along with shortages of lumber for years, local dealers mere not able to establish stock piles as "ine lumber moved out. to building jobs as fast as we received ic from the mills." Some dealers explained that the shortage of lumber in Lethbndge as acute even before the strike started. If shipments stop alto- gether, we simply will not have lum- ber." FREQCEXT SHORTAGES Generally speaking, contractors have been" placing orders for lum- ber with dealers and then obtaining it as shipments arrived in Leth- bndge. They counted on continued shipments to maintain their con- struction work, though frequent shortages of larious sizes and types of lumber have often delayed work. In some cases heavy planking material has been ripped by local dealers to provide builders with iiio-by-fours. The supply oi boards and shiplap has also been running far below 3Sost local aealers find them- sel-.es with less than the amount of lumber they would normally sell in t-AO weeks. They explained that the duration of the strike "will mean juss that much iumoer lost, as the production lost through the strike- cannot, be made up If the strike lasts a week it will set all building back a And if it a month, building ill be set back that 'sag as well." While some lumber is broiighs into Leihbndge from northern Al- berta mills, which are not affected bv the strike, most of the lumber comes to tms area from use Cran- area because of more favoraole freight rates Tils Brit- ish Columbia area is affected the strike. Some lumber is also brought here from southwestern Alberta. THE HERALD'S CITY NEWS PAGE PAGE SEVEN Japanese Families Prepare To Leave Some Repatriates See Greater Opportunities for Them in Their Old Homeland Hargrave Speaks at Closing Meeting Horticultural Society New fruits, flowers, shrubs and vegetables, suited to Southern Al- berta chmook conmtioos, are even now in the process of development, P. D. Hargrave, superintendent of the horticultural station at Brooks, told a well-attended meeting of the Lethondge and Dsstrict Horticul- tural Society Mondav night in the Y.M.C.A. building. The final meet- ing of the seasofi. it was also the most successful from the point of view of interest said the president of the society. T H Uewellvn. speaking for the 45 in at- tendance. Emphasizing in his remarks that farmers and horticulturists of the prairie provinces are the benefi- ciaries of tne research work and exnerunentation of growers in the east who ago crossed varieties of grain, fruit trees, shrubs and garden vegetables with a view to conquering certain regional condi- tions or endemic diseases, the horti- cultural expert inferred that plant breeding efforts now proceeding would reacn tneir fruition some 15, 20 or 25 jears hence. He cited as an examnie of the long time it takes to cevelop a new the Prestonian hybrids' nlacs produced a woman, horti- culturist now resident in Ottawa that combine the perfume and late blooming characteristics of Asiatic species with the snowiness of the better known shrubs of this coun- try. BETTER ORX-CHENTALS Better ornamentals are on their way. said the speaker, helped by the emorced propagation of flowers and snrubs in this country when growers were cut off from their European supplies of seed, bulbs and cuttings Tnese will be exactly suited to ths nature of climate, soil and other factors suca as market; j reamremems, attractiveness, length of "growing season, size and tex- ture. Mr. Hargrave predicted that 15 vears from now fruits sucn as apples, plums, cherries, grapes, raspberries and pears would cease to be classed as oddities and become available Ji commercial quantities. As a typical pioneer m the plant nursery' field working on the de- velopment of new types of fruits and'vegetab'es for western Canada conditions, he named F. L. Skinner of Manitoba, v.ho was tne first man to bring the Royal Horticultural cup to Canada Chinook winds create a peculiar problem for horticulturists, asciar- ed Mr Hargrave A cause of early blooming, the hot winds would e to be counteracted 'oy a snrub or tree that was derived irom a species wnich grew under similar condi- tions. Such conditions could oe al- most duplicated m Wyoming and western Russia, said the speaker. But that would no; be sufficient. Other essential characteristics would have to oe grafted on the new variety and that would be a long process. JvEW FLOWERS CREATED New flowers of unusual beauty had been developed in recent jears right here in Canada, ana notably in Alberta, and this achievement to fresh was serving as a spur horticultural efforts. Freezer locker specifications would determine the kind of vege- tables that would be grown in backyard gardens in the future said "the speaker, and these vege- tables -Rould be a isst improvement on those being produced today. Already a vast fruit Breeding pro- gram had taken snape m western Canada, centred around a large ana well equipped laboratory. Experi- mental plots scattered across the prairies "at the different horticul- ture stations would afford the testing grounds to determine the qualities of new cresses still under tnaL Mr. Hargrave saw a day when the irrigated areas of Alberta and sister provinces would become the sup- pliers of western Canada's special- ized crons Tms development would be hastened he though! by the moneyed interests in the homcul- tural industry. Interesting films depicting the bulb industry in Holland and show- ing views of thai country's vast fields of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, and crocuses together with close- ups of individual varieties were given by Robert Reid and Stanley Charles."
