Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 26, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE teTHBRIDGE HERAID Novombor 26, 1970 Plants shape own root environment tests by local researchers show Dr. J. L. Neal, Dr. T, G. At- kinson, and Dr. Ruby Larson, all scientists at the Lethbridge Re- search Station, have demon- strated that plants can shape .he environment around their root systems, and in effect, niild a defence system against disease. The findings came as a result of experiments being perform- ed at the station concerning in- fluence plants can have on their immediate growing zone. The scientists were able to change the influence a wheat aiant exerts on living organisms to the rbizosphere, the thin lay- er of soil surrounding the plant. In the experiments the team transferred a pair of chromo- somes from one spring wheat variety to another. One variety was susceptible to root rot dis- ease and the other was fairly The resulting variety with the substituted chromo- somes was resistant. It was found that the trans- ferred chromosome apparently bad an important controlling in- fluence over microbial activ- :ties related to soil fertility. The scientists then isolated bacteria from the rhizosphares of resistant wheat plants, sus- Filipino songs, dances, offer colorful charity program Medicine Hat to host Saturday event Filipinos plan native production Atoui 60 Filipinos from throughout southern Alberta will be presenting an evening ef their native dances and folk gongs in Medicine Hat Satur- day at p.m. The production is directed by Lethbridge school teacher Ben galcedo, and will be held at the St. Mary's Elementary-Junior High School in the 'Hat. The group intends to hold a fimilar performance in Leth- bridge in January, with pro- ceeds likely going to mental health or another charity. They also hope to perform in Cal- gary. Filipino costumes and Philip- pine Islands cultural heritage will be featured in the two and j one half hour production. Filipino and Canadian ver- sions of Christmas carols and other music will be included in the program, stylized flashes of rural farming activities in the more than islands will be danced and about 20 slides of actual Philippine Islands scenery will be shown. Mabuhay "a hearty wel- come" in the major Tagalog dialect of the islands, is a gen- eral theme for the production, which entwines the traditional Philippines and newer Spanish influences which have combined to give today's Filipino cus- toms their unique flavor. Halina't Magsaya, Kuratsa Leyte, Einasuana, Ba- lmy Kubo, Chitchiritchit, La Jota Moncadena, Panchita, Ha- banera Botolena these are names of the music in dancing and in songs to be presented. Courtship dances, a "dance of the dances in which glasses of wine and lit candles are held in the hands and on the head without spilling wedding dances and many oth- ers are included. More than 300 Filipinos live in southern Alberta most of them school teachers, nurses and in other professions. This is their first venture into local 'Lethbridge on menu of twin city in Quebec A restaurant in Lethbridge's twin city of Saint Laurent, Quebec, has added a new dish on its Steak. Apparently the idea is an ad- vertising gimmick, hinging on the popularity of western beef. City hall officials at Loth- bridge were unaware of the in- cident, but say any advertising done lor the city of Lethbridge is fine with them.

Mr. Stevenson will speak at the Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute Dec. 7 at a.m.; at Winston Churchill High School Dec. 7 at p.m.; and at Catholic Central High School Dec. 8 at a.m. The program's major pur- pose is to arrange school as- semblies to impress on students the responsibilities they must assume when they obtain a driver's licence. There arc three major points Mr. Stevenson plans to em- phasize: mental alertness, courtesy to other drivers and safe mechanical condition of the car. ceplible ones, and ones to which the chromosomes pair had been transferred. They found 20 per cent of the isolated bacteria from both the resistant plants and the the transferred chromosomes were antagonistic to the fungus causing root rot. On the other hand, none Use bacteria examined from the rhizosphere of the were antagonistic to fungus.

Final policy formulation Mental health programs scored by ORRPC member A. W. Ulrich of Vulcan, mem- ber of the Oldman Hiver Re- gional Planning Commission, feels southern Alberta's mental health care programs are "20 jears His remark at Wednesday's meeting of the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission A as sparked by a letter the commission received from Dr. Scott Angus, an official of the Southern Alberta Regional Mental Health, Planning Coun- cil. In the letter Dr. Angus re- iterated past requests for more hospital space for people re- quiring mental treatment. At the present time, Leth- bridge's only facilities for the treatment of mental patients is one small room in the Leth- kridge Municipal Hospital. The mental health council has been granted for the construction of a psychiat- ric unit in the municipal hos- pital. The new facilities will provide 21 beds. The council apparently feels the added beds will still not prove satisfactory, and recent- ly requested an entire psychiat- ric wing built onto the hos- pital. James Henderson, Alberta's minister of health has not ap- proved the request. The ORHPC has passed the mental health council's requests to its housing and social devel- opment committee for further. study. Also at .last night's ORRPC meeting, two new memberships were approved the Munici- pal District of Taber and the village of Warner. Public relations director appointed by LCC students Barbara Kimoto, a first year business administration student at the Leffibridge Community College has been appointed by the college students' council as its public relations director.

She says she hopes to show southern Alberta what college students do, to change the "slightly tarnished" image the college council fears they are getting. Another goal, Mss Kimoto production of their Philippine entertainment, and they say they plan to continue. They have made their own costumes and with the excep- tion of the production expenses, all proceeds from their Satur- day performance will go to the Georges P.

In his opening remarks-to the meeting Mr. Henderson noted that "multiple utiliza- tion" of resource areas was the only logical approach to take. There are those, he said, who want no resource development in certain areas, such as the foothills, but this is not eco- nomically feasible. Some development must oc- cur, he said. The problem was to keep the pollution within tol- erable levels. Pollution is a relative prob- lem, he said. "We must achieve a balance between development and pollution. Clean water, for example is technically feasible but not a practical objective. The target was to keep the pol- lution within the regenerativB capacity of the river involved." Board sees equipment for ETV A representative of the Shi- boden Electronics Company demonstrated uses of educa- tional television and some of the equipment the company has available, to the Lethbridge public school board Tuesday, Vic Fortinski, who works from Calgary, told trustees a ntsjor probelm all ETV firms have is convincing their buyers that television "has uses out- side of the idiot box programs they are accustomed to at home." He said television could be used as an economical and valuable teaching tool by teach- ers trained in its use. Teachers can use the equipment in. the classroom to focus on a partic- ular object, or demonstrate a technique or experiment, or to record a field trip for later de- tailed analysis and many other purposes. Other uses include of regular television shows for replay in school hours such as the documentary specials produced by the National Geo- graphic and Jacques Cousteau; replay of programs available from a department of education tape library; and replay at programs recorded previously by the teacher or other teachr ers. The public school board Is seriously considering extensive investment in educational tele- vision equip ment in city schools, which would likely in- clude at least one camera, one videotape recorder and several television receiver seta in each of its 15 schools. Dr. Gerry Probe, public schools director of personnel and material resources, has been researching the EfV re- quirements for schools for some time, and will likely pres- ent a report to the board in a few weeks.
