Picture then planting 75 acres of young Douglar Fir trees on steep and rough hill- sidc.s you begin to get a glimmer of what is involved. Many trees have their early beginnings in cither the KRL greenhouse or in the KRL nur- sery, hill in (his case, lives dec- lined for Ihe 75 acres will be purchased. Areas to be planted around the coal preparation plant, lunnel and conveyor road on Baldy Mountain and old strip-mining pits inherited by KRL wilh the mining pro- perties. The trees used this year are bare-rooted and must be plant- ed with Ihe traditional matlock or grubhoe. In future, the seed- lings will be raised in slyro- loam blocks measuring 20 by 14 by 5 inches, each with about 200 cavities one inch in dia- meter and four and one hall inches deep. These are filled with soil using a machine constructed at the Michel shops, and then planted with varieties of local conifers. After two months in the greenhouse the seedlings are moved to the nursery where they remain until the next spring. At the time of planting, the seedlings are taken out of the blocks with soil and roots intact and planted with a 'dibble' or bar which opens a hole in which seedling roots can be planted. Advantages of container plant- ing are that more trees can be planted in a given area than with traditional nursery prac- tices, planted much easier than with their root stocks and sur- vival is higher because root sys- tems are planted undamaged. In the greenhouse at the pres- ent time are numerous slips from local plants. These are snipped from the parent trees treated with rooting hormone and put into small fiber cups containing speciallly-prepared soil mixtures. Under a very gentle spray the slips, which are simply tips of small branches, send out root .'systems. Laler, the slips will be transferred to the KRL nur- sery for hardening and more growth begore reaching their final resting places in the areas to be reclaimed. Another aspect of reclamation ivork to be undertaken this year will he a start on reclamation of exploration areas. This will involve slabilizalion of road fill slopes, and drainage control ou road surfaces. Most of the main roads will left in fit condition for use, but the secondary roads will bo rcvegclatcd. This year also, a complete assessiiicnl of all reclamation work so far accomplished will be made. This will determine the per- ccnlagc of survival of planted frees and seeded cover with re- to soil types. During the valuation, a map showing vege- tal cover of Ihe entire area svill be made up. The map will attempt lo show what vegetation previously cov- ered various mined areas on the theory that Ihe lypcs of vcgc- lalion which grew in an area before mining will do best m th area Mellxtds used In drlerminc lypes of pro-mining vegetation include aerial pholos nnd com parison wilh uumined areas of similar nalure, slope and al li tudc. In the plans are re-sloping nnd terracing of the slag pile near Michel nnd seeding of lagoons. Also planned are re-sloping, terracing and seeding of the slag pile near Michel and seed- ing of Klkvicw A and II lagnons. II MHiml.s like a vrry summer lor the recliimaiion do- parlmcnl. Birth rate dips in Chinook area Tl.v HAVE PAINE Ifcrah[ News Service FORT MACLEOD Dr. Kurt Adler, medical officer of health for the Chinook Heallh Unit, says the birth rate within the unit declined steadily from 1962 until 1067. Over the last few years It s e e m s lo nave levelled off and remains between 10 and 18 per which is close to the national average. Almost 35 per cent of UIG mothers were under the age of IB years. The number of births to mothers over age 40 re- mains steady, between eight per cent and 10 per cent. The illegitimate rate was near 10 per cent, not much dif. fcrenl from the previous year. Accidents caused by motor vehicles are the most common cause of death in the young. Twelve persons were over the age of SO at the time of their COMMUNICADLE A total of 141 cases of strep- fococcal sore throats were re- ported. A minor epidemic of rubella occiired in the first quarter. Al- though only 51 cases were re- ported for "the year 1971, there were many unrepcirted cases. Of the 14 reported cases of measles, only one case had re- ceived any immunization. Thirty-one cases of infectious hepatitis WCVB reported. The in- cidence during t h c third quar- ter causes some concern. Twenty-one cases were report- erf from July lo Sept. -JO. Most cases occurred in I wo Hutlerile Colonies. Gamma Globulin was administered to all family con- Uclfi and the usual precaution- ary and follow-up measures were taken. Sporadic outbreaks of Salm- onellosis are still occurring and nine actual cases and seven carriers were found. VENEREAL Sixty-one cases of gonorrhoea were treated by medical prac- titioners in tho health unit area, hut only 25 cases were residents of that area. There were five male and seven females in the 15-19 years of age group; 13 male and eight females in the 20-24 ardi Gras days FOREMOST (SpcclaD-Fore- most's Annual Maverick Mardi Gras days will ba held June 9 to 11.

Routine tuberculin skin test- ing of students and school per- sonnel, also foodhandlers, was conducted during 1971, Dr. Adler praised the co-op- eration received from the divi- sion of tuberculosis control, us most exemplary. The staff of the division of tuberculosis control has a roost cordial re- lationsliip, not only with other government departments, b u t also with physicians in private praclice. SCI100L HEALTH The school health program required a great deal of the professional time of the public heallh nurse. All scheduled im- munization programs were completed. Routine immunizations were niven (mostly booster doses of the various vision testing and color vision testing, audiometer test ing; teacher- nurse consultal ions; rapid classroom inspections; tuber- culin test ing: complete phys- ical examinations by the med- ical officer of health of all Grade 1 pupils and other stu- dents upon request; dental screening; health education, lectures and films are given lo students on request. Sporadic case of pediculosis (lice Infes- tation i occurred in the Fort Macleod and Pinchor Creek Elementary Schools. SHSCF.LI.ANKOUS The health unit sponsored a diabetic seminar with Ihe nadian Diabetic Association and the department of national health and welfare. This was held in Fort Maclood. One young man who handled a rabid bat was treated with post-exposure rabies vaccine with good results. One person who had been suffering lor years from an infestation of tape worms (taenia sagenata) was successfully treated and passed one worm measuring well over 20 leet. A recent immigrant from Asia was found to be infested with Irichuriasis. One person suffered a relapse of malaria. 'Due to rapid transportation a 11 d increased international travel, we have to be con- stantly aware of the possibility of tropical and rare diseases being brought into this country. The health unit took part in a lick survey and one tick from the Crowsuest Pass area was found lo be positive for Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever anil one lick was found to be a car- rier of Colorado Tick Fever. PREVENTIVE Due to the ever-rising enor- mous costs of health care, gov- ernments are becoming mora interested in preventive med- icine. Remarkable progress has been made in preventing sems diseases, especially infectious diseases. How ever, health educallon does not seem lo he very effec- tive. The profound and deleteri- ous effects on health causes by cigarette smoking are well known. That the use of scat belts In motor cars prevents many fa- tal accidents is established. It is generally agreed that obesity decreases expectancy and is a contributing factor of many illnesses. The incidence of cardiovascu- lar disease could he greatly re- duced if people did not smoke; were not overweight and exer- cised regularly.
