HARMAN SALISBURY, Rhodesia (CP) Vast areas of Africa may be faced by a plague of red locusts in the near future. Entomologists here say the prospect of controlling the lo- custs is grim. An international organization formed by African countries to monitor the breeding and oversee the destruction of the locusts is in disarray. Its equipment, from aircraft to trucks, is inoperable; air- fields are overgrown and there is no insecticide with which to spray the growing numbers of locusts. South Africa, Rhodesia, Mozambique and Angola have all been expelled from membership of the organization for political reasons. Member countries have failed to pay their share of the operating costs of the organization and while it has been running down the red locusts have been proliferating. More than 20 swarms, each containing millions of locusts, have been reported recently in the breeding grounds. The red locust, found only in Africa, has its main breeding grounds in Tanzania, Zambia and Uganda. Some also breed near Beira in Mozambique. The favorite breeding grounds are in flooded plain and lake areas. Swarms destroyed In recent weeks two huge swarms containing 20 million to 50 million of the giant locusts have crossed into Rhodesia and have been destroyed. It is the first time in two years sightings have been reported here. But one entomologist here said the destruction of the swarms is only a rearguard action. It would be far more effective to hit the locusts in their breeding grounds when they are still at the "hopper" stage and have yet to develop their wings. With the red locust control organization at a standstill, he said the locusts are breeding freely. A plague of locusts sweeping Africa would have disastrous effects on the fragile economies of countries to the north. Old Africa hands remember the plague of more than a decade that ended during the Second World War. The skies turned black with the locusts, which can grow three and four inches in length. Grassed fields turned brown before people's eyes and the sound of the locusts devouring the vegetation could be clearly heard. Trains stopped The swarms were so dense they stopped trains when they landed on railway lines and were crushed. The bodies made the lines so slippery the engines were unable to gain traction The red locusts begin breeding in November at the start of the rainy season. When conditions are good, the breeding areas become overcrowded and the locusts begin swarming This usually happens around March. The swarms can travel hundreds of miles and take months doing so, leaving a trail of agricultural destruction. The first swarm to cross into Rhodesia recently travelled 125 miles before settling. Entomologists from the Plant Protection Research Institute swung into action when the swarm crossed the border. Caught in time Using a helicopter as a marker, a fixed-wing aircraft sprayed an insecticide on the swarm, which covered an area of about 1V2 square miles. A mortality rate of 94 per cent was achieved. The second swarm was so dense that when it settled lo- custs were piled one on top of another. Both swarms were destroyed before crop damage resulted. The authorities here are on the alert for the swarms for two reasons. One is the danger of crop damage; the second, the prospect that the locusts might find a suitable breeding ground and begin multiplying here. Incidentally, the red locust is considered a delicacy by many Africans. It is dropped in boiling fat, cooked and ea- ten. The taste is said to be like that of shrimp. Veteran Ontario barber still cuts hair for RICHMOND, Ont. (CP) Joe Dallaire has snipped and clipped his way through more than half a century of barber- ing in this Ottawa Valley town about 15 miles west of the capital and has no intention of throwing down the scissors yet. Nor does he expect in- flationary trends to force his price for a haircut beyond his present Born on a farm near Egan- ville, Ont.. 85 years ago, Mr. Dallaire's 60th year as a barber was marked recently by the people of Richmond. Festivities included the presentation of an engraved scroll by Erskine Johnson, former Ontario legislature member, and a plaque by Mayor Betty Hill of Goulbourn Township. People weren't always so friendly. Mr. Dallaire recalled. He remembered the first time he raised the price of a shave and haircut to 50 cents from 35. "There was hell to pay for a while." He served his barbering ap- prenticeship in Renfrew. Ont.. about 60 miles north of here and in 1914 began to search for a place of his own. He found it in Richmond. Travelling by train and buggy, Mr. Dallaire arrived with a borrowed in his pocket on Oct. 1, 1914, to be- come the barber for what proved to be five generations of townspeople. Two years later he wed Kathleen McCauley Life at first was difficult for the Dallaires In 1916 fire de- stroyed the barber shop. With the aid of a local organization, Mr Dallaire rebuilt the shop and retained the 25-cent hair- cut. Barbering is not his only oc- cupation. Like most small towns in the early decades of the century. Richmond lacked a fire truck. It was not unusual, towns- people recall, to see Mr. Dal- laire. lather flying, rush to the scene of a fire pulling the vol- unteer brigade's wooden watertanker behind his car. He estimates that he has given about 312.000 haircuts since he arrived in Richmond but shows little desire for re- tirement. "I work because I like he said. "It's a good pastime." Time has slowed him a little-hut only a little He works five days a week from 7 30 a m to 6 p.m.. half days on ob- viously enjoys it Oil stales money up WASHINGTON
