Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE PORCUPINE HILLS district of Southwestern Alberta is being watched more closely this fall than perhaps any other in the re Last spring ihe fish and wildlife branch stocked 88 wild turkeys in the hills considered as having the best turkey habitat in the province. Biology assistant Pat Youg spent the past summer back in the hills with the birds. His report has con- siderable encouragement. During his he saw quite a number of chicks from this year'shatch. He also found one nest of infertile eggs. Of the total number of birds 12 came from North Dakota and the balance wre hatched from eggs at the provincial wildlife research centre at Brooks. All the birds were of the wild Merriam which is the No. strain in the U.S. wherever there are open seasons on the birds. It's not uncommon to take them in the 10 to 12-pound with 16 pounders plus not unheard of. Even though the new stocking of turkeys in the Porcupines is still an experimental predator problems have shown up. Of two pair of feet shown fox or weasel are held in suspect. one pair of feet were still attached to a bird. And the bird was in the custody of one of our native believed to be from a nearby reservation. His treaty says he has the right to hunt the year round. It's to be hoped this incident does condemn our native people the Indian as a bunch of poachers and meat hounds. The whiteman is no slouch when it comes to poaching either. The stark example this incident shows up is that two people cannot successfully live in one country if the rules of the game are different for each. Whose responsibility was it to let the Indian people know that an experiment with wild tuyrkeys was being attemped in the Porcupine Shouldn't this be a three-way partnership the the Indians and government department Here again is a need for the opening of the channels of communication As it has in so many other the Blood Indian Reserva- tion of the south country for the past few years has had a group of young people that have formed a rod and gun club. A key ob- jective of the organization is conservation. If you saw a turkey out in the but not all that far from human what would you Regardless of what color or creed you belonged the vast majority would say it was a stray domestic bird. You might even get to feeling sorry for the bird. Out in the wild it doesn't know how to scratch for not will it ever be able to survive the elements. Best take it. The first stocking of wild turkeys in Alberta took place some years ago in Cypress Hills Provincial Park in the southeast. There was noticeable activity among the birds the first few yers. Now they appear to have an established popula- tion and that is that. A few years ago some of the Cypress birds were moved to the Porcupines. it was stormy and wet weather. None are known to have survived Another friend down the drain By JUAN DEONIS New York Times Service Saudi Arabia Saudi the oil giant of the Arabian has seen her long-standing friendship with United States go into a severe crisis as a result of the Middle East war. But from all indications there has been no irreparable breach so far and there is a strong desire for an agreement that will save a relationship in which the United States has large economic and security interests. The one-billion- dollar Arabian-American Oil Company here is the largest single U.S. overseas investment. The anti- Communist Saudi Arabian which receives an annual income from oil ex- ports of close to has been a major moderating influence against revolutionary Arab movements.

The crisis in relations came when the news reached here during the fighting between Egypt and Syria last month that President Nixon was asking Congress for million in purchasing funds to resupply Israel followed by a publicized airlift to Israel.

Un- til the political problem over Israel is Faisal Saudi Arabia cannot co- operate with the United States in solving energy and financial problems. The immediate world oil supply situation depends fun- damentally on Saudi Arabian decisions because this country supplies 40 per cent of the oil from the Persian Gulf and is the leader of the oil-producing countries in setting price policies.
