Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta STUDENT-TEACHER FLIGHT 61 DAYS JULY 4th Sept. 3rd CALGARY LONDON plus Insurance Book June 4th ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL Centre Village Mall Phone 328-3201 The LetHbridge Herald SECOND SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, Friday, May 18, 1973 PAGES 15-26 LETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD. lower 7th Strett Shopping Mgll Uthbridgc, Alberta Phone (403) 328-7411 FILING Calgary survey eyed Many local dogs still licenceless The unlicensed pooch in Calgary has become the ob- ject of a door-to-door survey which has caught the atten- tion of city licensing officials here. They're not proposing to emulate their Calgary kin, at least not at the moment, but you might say they've more than a passing interest in the Calgary experiment. Four students have been hired there and began work this week on no less a task than checking every touse and apartment in the city in an effort to collar an esti- mated to dogs whose owners have neglected to buy the required tag. Citizens found harboring an unlicensed Rex, Rover, Fido or Lassie will be given five days to pay the fee or face a court summons, says Cal- gary deputy licensing inspec- tor George Hooper. Lethbridge licence inspect- or Wally Leishmam said Thursday while some dogs in the city have been li- censed there's likely still a large number still without their tags. "Some people seem to be- lieve if they keep their dog indoors they don't need a li- he said. "That's just net so." The city's bylaw requires that every dog over six months old have a licence. The only exception is seeing- eye dogs for the blind, whfch still ought to be registered in case they ever are picked up by the pound, but for which no fee is charged. In the long run, said Mr. Irishman, it's much wiser to buy a licence because if your dog is picked up without one, you'll have to pay for the licence, to get it out of the pound and a fine. Two local men arrested on car-stealing charge Two Lethbridge men have been arrested in connection with the theft of an automo- bile in the city early today.

The Lethbridge Philatelic Society, which set up the display, learned at its recent annual meetng that a special wicket is to be set up in the city post office in about six months at which stamp collectors may order back issues of Canadian postage. Cottony white specks Spraying stops spruce gall aphid If white cotton-like specks appear on the needles of spruce trees, spraying should be started immediately to combat aphids, according to the local district agricultur- ist. Murray McLelland, district agriculturist for the 'County of Lethbridge and Warner, said spraying can control the spruce gall aphid. The white specks represent tiie egg stage of the aphid life cycle, usually on the growing tips of spruce treas. Although the aphid is quite prevalent in the County of Lethbridge, they don't cause serious injury to the trees unless infestation is very heavy. The brown lips caused by the gall, the overwintering host for the aphid, is unsight- ly and is of greatest concern to gardeners. Spray control isn't easy as the aphids must be outside the gall to be effective. The aphids must be sprayed while outside the gall, a time linked closely with the first leafing of poplar trees in the spring. In any spraying should be started es soon as the white cottony specks on the needles are noticed. Malathion at 50 per cent einulsifiable concentrate at a rate of one ounca per gallon of water, repeated nine to 22 days later, is best. The temp- erature should be above CO degrees during the summer for spraying. If only a few galls are pre- sent and the tree isn't too large, control can be obtained by picking the galls off and destroying itfem. while the aphids are still inside. This is probably best dona during July, according to Mr. McLelland. Another problem for many Lethbridge homeowners is the gall mite on poplar trees. This unsightly problem begins usually about the time of new life in tte plants, including trees and shrubs. The gall, which appears to be brown barnacles on the branches, is caused by an in- sect or mite feeding on the plant tissue. The growth of the gall varies from tiny growths on leaf surfaces to large growths on tree trunks and branches. Maha Mahadeva, pomolo- gist at the Alberta Horticul- tural Research Center at Brooks, reports that there is no insecticide that can ef- fectively control the gall mite en poplar trees. He says if a few young poplar trees are affected in a yard, the affected branch- es should be removed by pruning. Older trees seem to come out of the problem in time al- though the tree will be unsight- ly until it recovers. 6th convocation Saturday E. S. P. FOX Certified Dental Mechanic FOX (Leth.)

Council had sent the club a statement saying the charges for 1972 for a man and a trac- tor to maintain the fairways was based on the rate of per hour for the com- bined cost of the man's wages and the machine us- age. Gordon Luchia and Glen Peters, representing the golf club, said no formal agree- ment has been made on the rate the county charges for labor. Coun. Tomasta sug- gested the council should not charge the golf club for the use of the machine but only for the wages of the opera- tor. Council agreed to charge only for labor at the going government rate which for 1972 was per hour. Maintenance charges were estimated at The county is also paying for cutting the rough on the golf course. In other council business Thursday: Proposed planning r e s- olutions adopted in principle at the April 19th meeting dealing with development control were approved. The County agreed t o take over the Coalhurst wa- terworks providing the pro- posed Coalhurst water and sewage bylaw is passed. An application from Marshall Auto Wreckers to establish a retail outlet in the county was accepted. Manager Bob Madill re- ported on meeting with the city regarding dog control in the county. He said the city recommended that if the county wants to use the ser- vices of the city dog catch- er they would have to con- sult him. Mr. Madill told council Glen Anderson, city dog catcher, had said if the county really wants strict control it should implement the City of Lethbridge dog bylaw. The manager pointed out that the city bylaw differs somewhat from the dog by- law the county had been con- sidering. Council discussed using only the portion of the city bylaw which refers to the fines for unlicensed dogs. The discussion was tabled.
