Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14-THE LETHBRIDQC NovemiMH Hunger attacked first in new country By MURDOCH MacLEOD Herald Suff Writer Refusing to force solutions on people in underdeveloped and getting out when time is up have made the Unitarian Service Committee a successful aid organization. Dr. Lotta executive director of told a Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce directors' luncheon Tuesday that hunger is always the first problem attacked in a new area. Hungry people have no energy to help she and USC's aim is'to get peo- ple to help themselves. Only local staff are used to solve local said Dr. Hitschmanova. She is the only Canadian staff member to go on her annual inspection made to ensure that all contributions reach their intended destinations. travel around the world like.a she said. People can be corrupted by said Dr. so it is also important that the committee get out of an area before it overstays its welcome. She said USC would withdraw from India by June and it had been planned to withdraw from Korea by 1978 but the government of the Republic of Korea asked that aid continue until 1985. Family planning is another area of concern to said the director. Programs had been in and Hong Kong but had not been so successful in India. In she literate people such as factory workers were receptive to the but there was much resistance in rural areas. Dr. Hitschmanova said the need of people and their spirit of deter- mination are what has kept her aid business for 28 years. In she the people were so poor that a woman could not af- ford a sari costing but they were determined to gain a better life. Dr. Hitschmanova also said the USC hopes to raise million this year across plus an additional because of inflation. The Lethbridge sponsored by The has a goal of to be used to send carloads of powdered the equivalent of cups of to Bangladesh. Dr. Hitschmanova told the chamber directors The Herald has run the campaign for nine collecting over for the USC. Farmers in the Prairies have been among the best contributors to she because they realize the importance of the committee's prac- tical approach in sending food overseas. The Unitarian Service Committee has not been connected with the Unitarian Church.for several said Dr. Hitschmanova. It is com- pletely non-denominational and except for paid staff in the Ottawa is voluritary. Australia asks city scientist for bees By RIC SWIHART Staff Writer Alfalfa leafcutter responsible for Alberta's booming alfalfa seed produc- ing will be introduc- ed to Australia this year by a Lethbridge scientist. Gordon the man who domesticated a key species of leafcutter bee and then developed methods and equip- ment for the bees to nest and reproduce while the vital job of pollinating alfalfa has been vited to Australia to establish a beekeeping and alfalfa seed production industry similar to that in Alberta. Dr. Hobbs will leave Chamber to attend council The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce board of directors voted unanimously Tuesday to have a schedule drawn up whereby at least one director would attend each city council meeting. The which was suggested by the civic affairs was to improve rapport with city government. The chamber directors also referred to the executive suggestion by the federal af- fairs committee that letters be written to the federal and provincial governments urg- ing them to renew discussions on the energy United Way campaign at The Lethbridge United Way campaign has raised during 39 days of canvassing compared with during the same period one year ago. is hoped that with the continued effort of canvassers and the board of directors that the campaign will reach its goal says United Way executive director Al Purvis.

Units are worth three credits each at the 10 and 20 for a total of six credits per term. At the 30 two modules give the student five credits.

He willwork with an Australian entemologist at Adelaide for two sharing techniques and theories developed at the Lethbridge Research Station. The leafcutter unique in its reproduction cycle because it uses precisely cut pieces of alfalfa leaves instead of self-made wax to form the was ac- cidentally introduced to the United States during the mid 1940s. Dr. who has publish- ed four scientific bulletins and who is recognized as the foremost authority in Canada on leafcutter started his active research on the bee in 1962 when they were first brought to Canada. Because the bees required a small enclosed space to build their large colonies of cells for beekeepers first used drinking cor- rugated cardboard or blocks of wood with small holes drill- ed in them. In Dr. Hobbs used the drinking straws but the following year he substituted grooved boards piled one on top of another. When the grooves tunnels were formed. Dr. Hobbs found that by us- ing the the nests of cells could be easily preventing a build-up of debris in the tunnels which is a feeding ground for insects that soon become a pest. It also reduces the space for building the reproduction cells. He has since developed machines which easily remove the thousands of cells developed during the time the adult bees are busy pollinating alfalfa crops and until the winter months stop their tivity. Because of Dr. Hobbs Alberta beekeepers have been able to reverse a bee-trading cycle with the U.S. Prior to his all bees were brought to Canada from southwest and eastern Oregon and Washington. In a short Alberta has shipped many million more bees back to the U.S. than it ever he said. Indicative of the large amounts of money involved is the profit beekeepers are making from the sale of bees to wholesalers in the said Dr. Hobbs. A beekeeper in Alberta has to have about bees per acre of alfalfa for adequate pollination. During the work- ing these bees will increase three providing surplus bees that can be sold and still leave ade- quate bees for work the following year. Wholesalers in the U.S. pay per gallon so Mbi-vta beekeepers earned per acre trorn their bee Dr. Hobbs said a unique overwintering stage in Ihe liie cycle of the lealcutter bee makes this possible.

When the food is the lull-grown larva spins a silken cocoon around itself to pre- vent contamination from the waste materials. i lien spends the entire winter in us cocoon. It differs from the common honey bee because it doesn't have to be ted during the winter. These cocoons are then brought to a cooler set at 40 degrees Fahrenheit to protect them from freezing temperatures during the winter. In the spring the cocoons lire incubated for 22 days at a temperature of 85 degrees. The hives of man-made tunnels are then put in the lields at the time the alfalfa plants atari to .flower. As the male bees emerge I com the they mate with emerging females and .the Icinale starts the cycle again by laying eggs in special cells within the tunnels that it builds. Dr. Hobbs said the leaf- cutter bee is needed for the allalta pollination process because it can withstand a physical beating from the reproductive parts of the allalta flower. The allalla flower is one of a kind which produces seed only when a relatively large stalk within the bloom is by some outside pressure. This stalk must bang against the wall ot the main petal of i he I lower to pollinate the seeds The stalk can actually trap a small bee. said Dr. Hobbs. Honey bees and bumblebees don't seem to like the getting hit by the stalk while the leaf- cutter seems'oblivious to the Kven with all the techniques and equipment available. Dr. Hobbs isn't sure the introduc- tion ol the lealcutter bee to Australia will be a success. He said the climate near Adelaide is more similar to that in California than Southern Alberta and the bees haven't been a success in that part ol the U.S. He claims the temperature control will be critical to the success ol the project. In Southern Alberta farmers place the protected hives over bare grourid to keep them warm The tops ot the shelters are painted black-to absorb heat from the sun. In he feels the shelters will have to be put directly over the alfalfa plants. Water might have to be run under the shelter to keep the temperature at a reasonable level.
