Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, October 13, LETHBRIDGE HR5ALO 25 Coast clean-up could continue until late spring next year Going full blast This is the type of grain dryer being used in nor- thern Alberta and Saskatchewan as farmers try to salvage crops affected by snow and rain. A blast of Some crops already abandoned propane-fired heat is blown through the grain. Ren- tal of the equipment in northern Alberta costs an hour. Grain in water-soaked fields By JIM NEAVES EDMONTON (CP) "We don't even dare think about said LucieSt. Andre of the financial loss she and husband Roger face after wet weather that has almost forced them to abandon the crop four miles northwest of the northern Al- berta community of Giroux- ville. With most of Prairie grain crops harvested in southern areas, large acreages in northern Alberta and northern Saskatchewan remain in watersoaked fields that defy attempts by machinery to move in. Industry officials estimate that 91 million than one-sixth of this year's total estimated Prairie wheat crop of 585 million is not harvested. Earlier this week, the Alberta wheat pool said most points in the province north and northwest of a line from Calgary through Lloydminster reported less than half of their wheat threshed, and the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool said nearly half the bread wheat crop was unharvested in northern Saskatchewan. In the Alberta legislature, Premier Peter Lougheed said warm, windy weather is need- ed to dry unthreshed grain. Mrs. St. Andre, a regional director of the Women of Uni- farm, said in an interview most of the municipal district of Smoky River in Alberta's Peace River block is affected. She estimated 25 inches of rain fell during this year's growing season compared with an average nine inches. "The machinery just bogs down. We can't even get a swather in and many people have told me they just aren't going to bother trying to get the crop harvested." She said the only hope is a sudden, hard would freeze the ground enough to allow farm machinery to operate. The crop then could be harvested, but the financial return would be reduced because the rain- soaked grain would be of a lower grade and weigh less. In addition, any decision to leave the crop in the fields for the winter would mean extra work cleaning up next spring to prepare for planting the 1974 crop. Allan Washenfelder, Sas- katchewan Wheat Pool agent at Naicam, Sask.. 80 miles southeast of Prince Albert, said conditions have been bad BED OF THORNS CLAPHAM, England (CP) Rev. Peter Winstone has made a fakir-style bed of six- inch nails which he plans to lie on for six hours. He's going to charge visitors watching the "lie-in" and said it would spare his parishioners the tedious events normally held to ra-se church funds. but the harvest should be com- pleted today. The problem in that area was a four-to six-inch snowfall early in September followed by more than one-half inch of rain. Unlike northern Alberta, wet fields were not the wheat was just too damp to harvest "We've got quite a few grain dryers going in the he said, adding that the 175 farmers who deliver their grain to his elevator seeded more than acres to wheat this year. Compromise rejected by minister REGINA (CP) Federal Justice Minister Otto Lang has rejected a Saskatchewan compromise proposal on the feed grains controversy and asked the province to get started on discussions about next year's plan.- Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister Jack Messer said in a telegram to Mr. Lang that Saskatchewan would com- promise on the issue if the Canadian Wheat Board's pric- ing authority is restored. In Saskatchewan it is esti- mated that 48 million bushels of wheat from a total of 368 million bushels remain to be harvested. In Alberta about 43 million bushels of the wheat harvest estimate of 134 million bushels lies in the fields. There was no harvest prob- lem in Manitoba this year with almost all of the 83- million-bushel wheat crop in the bins. The total estimate for this year's crop was an increase of about 70 million bushels com- pared with 1972 and officials say there is no doubt the Cana- dian wheat board, the national marketing agency, will be able to sell every bushel produced YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF TO TRY THIS NEW PIPE!

Name___________---------------- Address. ___ City_________ Prov._ By KEN METHERAL VANCOUVER (CP) For 17 days apprehension has dogged harbor and en- vironmental officials mopping up the oil spill near the entrance to Vancouver har- bor. It was a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25, when the bow of the Japanese freighter Sun Dia- mond sliced into the British freighter Era wan, rupturing her fuel tanks and spilling 000 gallons of bunker oil into waters almost within hailing distance of the University of British Columbia. Despite ideal weather conditions and swift action, swirling tidal waters carried some gallons across the bay to foul West Vancouver area shores. The. cleanup, which may cost upwards of is expected to con- tinue until spring. It is the experience of this relatively minor spill, the first of any magnitude to hit Vancouver harbor, that causes the apprehension. If a small spill can cause such problems, what would result from a major spill involving one of the giant tankers now coming into increasing use? "It would be says Captain Roy Holland, Vancouver harbormaster. "There is no other way to describe "It gives me the says Jack Wood, who as superintendent of parks for West Vancouver has been in- volved in the cleanup. WORST OVER More than two weeks after the spill, the Erawan is safely in drydock and the worst of the cleanup is over. But long stretches of the rocky West Vancouver shoreline remain fouled. Mr. Wood has six men on fulltime cleanup work and assigns more when he can. Another 30 or more employed by the federal environment department and ministry of transport are also hard at work. In badly-fouled areas, the oil is being soaked up with peat moss, rocks cleaned with highpressure hoses and floating debris gathered up. Some oilsoaked debris and peat moss is trucked to city dumps and the .remainder burned, in small piles to reduce smoke pollution. The final scrubbing is ex- pected to be handled by winter gales. The collision provided the first real trial of a spill plan drawn up by environmental and harbor officials. "Everything possible to alleviate the effects of the spill was done as quickly as possible says Captain Holland. "Five minutes after the acci- dent report everyone concern- ed had been alerted. Captain Holland and several other of- ficials didn't wait to dress, arriving at their offices in py- jamas. The first job was to separate the two freighters and ensure they were not in danger of sinking. the first oil boom was ringed around the Erawan, and two were added during the day. On advice of harbor officials knowledgeable about tidal currents, truckloads of peat moss were delivered to West Vancouver beaches before the first oil floated in. Hundreds of area many of them students, raced to the waterfront to help spread peat moss and straw Centres were set up to handle oilsmeared birds, their numbers surprisingly small thanks in part to enterprising youngsters who drove them away from oilfouled areas with stones. The city of Vancouver es- caped virtually unscathed. Al- most perversely, the currents swept the oil to the opposite side into (he home riding of federal Environment Minister Jack Davis, where the rugged shoreline made the cleanup more difficuU. Inevitably, the cleanup operation brought complaints. Some felt oil booms should have been placed around the vessels immediately, instead of after almost hours. Har- bor officials explain that rescue tugs needed sea room until the freighters were separated and secure.
