Controlled Storage Benefits Seen For Vegetable Industry kProvinco  CLIP AND MAIL TODAY  By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Farm Writer The recent decision by the Alberta government to build a controlled - atmosphere storage unit at the Brooks Horticultural Station could bring far-reaching benefits to the province's expanding vegetable industry. This was a recent statement by Dave Stelfox, supervisor of the Alberta department of agriculture's crop clinic in Edmonton. He said the new facilities will make it possible to speed up and expand vegetable storage research and determine if con-troUed-atmosphere storage has a role in prolonging the storage life of many Alberta-produced vegetables. The crop clinic lab, called on to diagnose many vegetable storage problems, initiated its own storage studies on a small scale seven years ago. Although they knew there were chemicals which would inhibit many disease-causing organisms in stored vegetables, Mr. Stelfox and his co-workers felt it would be a mistake to rely entirely on chemical control. Controlled - atmosphere storage used successf u 11 y to prolong the storage life of several kinds of fruits apeared to have good possibilities for use in long-term storage of carrots. turnips, parsnips and similar root crops. To check this, clinic staff developed small controUed-atmo-sphere units not much bigg�-than a water pail. With these they were able to study the affects of increasing carbon dioxide tension and decreased oxygen on certain disease causing fungi at various temperatures. First studies revealed some QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture BIdg. �� PHONE 328-7684M Man Hurt When Car Leaves Road Lethbridge city police and RCMP report one motor vehicle accident Friday night, and one break and enter. The vehicle accident invloved Jack Helle, 27, of Shaughnes-sy, who sustained head and chest injuries when the car he was driving left the road one mile soutli of Diamond City. Damage was estimated at $1,-500. Mr. Helle is reported to be in serious condition at the Lethbridge Municipal H o s p ital. There were no other passengers in the car. The break and enter occured at 12:30 this morning at Duff Sound Equipment, 1108, 6 Ave S. City police say it was a smash and grab theft. The culprit broke the front window of the store and made off with a microphone mixer valued at $130. organisms were suppressed at low carbon dioxide concentrations, stimulated to firowth at slightly higher levels, and completely inhibited at higher doses. Moreover, some fungi, not normally considered a problem in low temperature storage grew and multiplied at higher carbon dioxide levels. In other words, said iVIr. Stelfox, the untimely application of carbon dioxide to storage atmospheres could result in disease exchanges. When seelung means of controlling disease causing organisms it's equally important to malce certain there is no quality loss in the produce. For its quality control study, the clinic first adapted a heavy duty polyethylene bag, and finally a walk-in type storage and the first of its kind in the province. MORE TESTS Present investigations at the crop clinic lab are concentrated on determining what combinations of low temperature, modified oxygen and carbon dioxide atmosphere, and relative humidity best enables stored produce to retain high quality for six or seven months while undesirable fimgi are suppressed. The 24-ton storage unit was built at a cost of about $30,000 and will be ready for use in about one week. Art Olson, director of the Brooks Horticultura: Station, said the unit and otiiers like it can strengthen Alberta's vegetable industry by maldng it possible to supply consumers with highly perishable vegetables for weeks longer than before possible. Buijert Sure^ Mont May NDP Nominations Set For Nov. By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer The Lethbridge New Democratic Party Association has announced it will hold a nomination meetmg Nov. 18 to elect candidates for the next provincial election. It is expected the NDP will be the first party to name candidates for the two new city ridings, East and West Lethbridge. Widely-rumored dates for the election are tlie spring o r fall of 1971, although the Social Credit government's five - year mandate does not run out until 1972. Charles Buijert, Lethbridge Herald printer and the party's unsuccessful candidate in the 1967 election, said he will definitely contest a nomination. It is believed Alastair Mont, director of the Lethbridge Family Service and currently a member of the public school board, is consideriing running also. The New Democrats, like the Liberals, have maintained a single executive for both ridings. The two Social Credit associations, meanwhile, will hold a joint annual meeting Oct. 27 to elect permanent executives. The present executives were elected on an interim basis following the legislatm-fi's announcement last spring of the two ridings. The meeting will start at 8 p.m. at Allan Watson School. Stan Coxson, president of the West Lethbridge Socred association, said the party expects Beets Roll After Stop The sugar beet harvest is rolling again. Following consultation Friday of Canadian Sugar Factories Ltd. and Southern Alberta Sugar Beet Growers Association officials, a decision was made to reopen all piling stations in the district. This does not include car loading stations which remain closed to facilitate the reloading of frost damaged beets at country points. CSF officials say essentially this means growers close to loading stations vriU have to deliver to the nearest piling station, or as directed by field-men. The sugar beet harvest now entering its 19th day has met v.ith delays caused by adverse weather conditions. The big concern is for beets severly damaged by frost Oct. 7. Because of the freezing, beets are not in good storage condition, and cannot remain piled for long. About 40 per cent of the 38,000 acres of sugar beets in souithem Alberta have been harvested. Pension Plan Sessions Set Itinerant and local office sessions will be held at the following locations, where a field officer will deal with matters pertaining to the Canada Pension plan, old age security, and guaranteed income supplement.

A conference for candidates and potential candidates wUl he held in Banff early in December. Dr. Herb Axford, president of the East Lethbridge Conservative association, said no date has been set for a local nomi-1 nation meeting. However, since the party has close to 50 candidates named already through-^ out the province, it is expected ' local nominations will be held at least by early 1971. I The Liberal party constitutes a nomination demand looking for candidate supply. Where the other three parties have actively courted potential candidates, Uie Liberals are waiting for interested persons to be drawn to them. Dr. W. J. Cranley, president of the Lethbridge provincial Liberal association, said there has been "no urging about a nomination meeting." A party organizer from Calgary who was due to visit the city a couple of ^veeks ago has not made an appearance and Dr. Cranley suggested he is "anxiously awaiting his arrival." Revisions Made In Pheasant Limits In the general announ.cement that was made by the Alberta fish and vialdlife branch, the daily limit on pheasants was set at three birds per day and nine in possession from Oct. 9 to Oct. 31. For the latter part of the season from Nov. 2 to Dec. 5, the daily limit was set at five and the possession limit at 15. These limits were set for male birds, or roosters, and apply in all parts of the province except WUdlife Management Unit G140 centered in the Rainier district, southwest of Brooks. In Wildlife Management Unit G140, hunters may take two hen pheasants in addition to tlie three male birds per day limit from Oct. 9 to Oct. 31, and have in their possession six female birds in addition to the nine male birds. From Nov. 2 to Dec. 5, shooters may take three hens in addition to the five per day male bird limit and have in possession nine hens in addition to the 15 male birds. The season on hen pheasants I in WMU G140 is open Monday ' through Saturday this year, and not restricted to Saturdays only as in previous years. Hunters are to check out through special check stations when hunting in WMU G140 according to the regulations. The clarification on the limits was made today by Frank SommerviUe, supervising fish and wildlife officer for southern Alberta.
