"World's Only Airline Service On The Ground" NORTHERN Ptodwr CrMk TrmI Centra -The Great American Bluff has been played on the Canadian public more than once and this time it has been wrought by pressure from United States cattlemen who feel slighted that Canada put import restrictions on animals not certified healthy enough for slaughter in this country. They also don't like Canada's import quota because it kicks them in their greater-then-thou at- titudes. The reports out of Washington claim the U.S.t government is going to retaliate in kind and even extend the restrictions to other, commodities. But for the U.S. to retaliate in kind, the Canadians must be trying to ship product south of the border that isn't deemed fit for public consumption by the American government It isn't. The cattlemen simply feel the Canadian border closure, pending certification that cattle are free of the, growth stimulant Diethylstil- bestrol is cutting into their little pocketbooks a little too much. Besides; the Americans forget that Canadian cattlemen, want a quota on imported cattle to protect their vested interests in this country. The quota set up "ia Csssds limits ths number of cattle entering this country to a set limit per quarter of a year after which a higher duty would prevail, making it un- economical. A real fumy part of the whole threat cycle, es- pecially the import quota business, is that the Americans have used a similiar import quota system, including increas- LOCKWDOD CENTRE PIVOT COVERS A QUARTER SECTION (GUARANTEED DELIVERY) Irrigation has now gem Ml drcto.

Uthbridgo PhOfM32S-S374 ed duties after a set number come in each three-month period, on Canadian cattle heading south for many years. If there was some, retaliation on the Canadian import quota now in the form of higher, duties it wouldn't do much good for the U.S. There now is a 10 cent per pound price break with U.S. feeder cattle on the cheaper end. That means it is not very likely Canadian feeder cattle would go south. They just couldn't compete.' The Canadians can't make hay while the sun- shines by bringing in those cheaper U.S. feeders to combat the high feed grain prices in this -country because of a health limitation. It appears the feeders from the U.S. can't pass the blue tongue and anaplasmosis standards and while Canadians have tried to bring them in to make buck; they have been foiled by the Canadian government. Remember that's the same govern- ment which won't let DES treated cattle in this country. The shoe may be on the other foot one day but I feel the so-called threats out of the U.S. are just so much hot air, people mouthing of f in a fit of something. The majority of .cattlemen on both'sides of the border realize this isn't a long- term arrangement and everything being done is ,for everyone's good.' The dairy control and dairy branch sections of the Alberta department of the agriculture has been decentralized. Formerly in the Agricultural Building in Edmonton, the head- quarters staff has moved to the Provincial Building in Wetaskiwin. The P.O. Box is 6120 and telephone is 352- 3306. director of the Alberta Veterinary Ser- vices Division of Alberta department of agriculture, has named Nanton veterinarian Fruk Baker beef cattle extension veterinarian for the department. Dr. Baker, practising in Nanton the past 15 years, will be working with cattlemen and. veterinarians on extension programs, in depth investigations of disease problems and preventive veterinary medicine. He will be in Edmonton and will work the entire province. Two ca.ttle breed associations have named men to key positions. Ken Copithorae of Calgary, president of the Canadian Brown Swiss Association, reports that Bill Lhwey is the secretary treasurer -of the association. The national office of the association has also been moved to Calgary from St. Thomas. Ont The Welsh Black Association has established the will 'run things for year, including some Southern Albertans. Heading sales will be Jack FoJsom of Hillspring. Included in the facts and figures committee are Bob Banunel of Mflk River and Darwin and Patty Load of Taber. Darwin'and Bob will also look after finance. ALICE SWITZER The Alberta Farm Writers Association including several key peo- ple associated with agriculture in Alberta, welcomed a new president last month. She is Alice Switier of Calgary, publications editor for United Farmers of Alberta. Bill Cameron, agriculture director of CJDV in Drumheller, was elected secretary- treasurer. Life memberships in the association were given to. Frank Jacobs and Cliff Favlknor, the men behind the The Beef Magazine. The unexpected By DR. RUBY LARSON Cytogeaetteist Research is like the path of the early explorers: they knew the direction they were going but they did not know what they would find. At the Lethbridge Research Station, we are exploring the inheritance of some useful characters of wheat To do this .we manipulate, through breeding the chromosomes of wheat and related grasses. Our early work was directed toward finding which chromosomes affect resistance to the wheat stem sawfly. One of our trails substituting chromosomes of sawfly resistant wheat varieties for those of susceptible varieties and vice vena, a process that took many years. We now have a supply of seed of the.substituted strains that will enable us to associate yield, rate of maturity, and quality, with specific chromosomes and with sawfly resistance. It was only later that we discovered that the sawfly resistant varieties are susceptible to common root rot while the sawfly varieties have moderate resistance To the disease. Since the strains with substituted chromosomes were available, we had only to test them for reac- tion to root rot to discover that one particular chromosome is the main control for resistance to root rot ST A VEY AUCTION MARRH Cattle fclisstirt it 11 :00i.in.
