Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, October 25, 1974 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD 17 The Herald- District MR. AND MRS. WES LODERMEIER LAUGH OVER A RECORD PIKE THEY CAUGHT Second record pike taken from pool MILK RIVER Mr. and Mrs. Wes Lodermeier jointly caught a record northern pike in Milk River Ridge Reservoir which proved to be the second provincial record fish from the impoundment, The Herald learned Thursday. The fish weighed 37 pounds, eight ounces, was 49% inches long and was 24 inches in girth. It is larger than the 34 pound, 13 ounce pike caught there by P. Berger in 1972 Berger's fish was 47Vz inches long and held the provincial record until June, when the Lodermeier fish was taken. Mrs. Lodermeier hooked the fish using eight pound test line and a green casting spoon with black spots while fishing from shore. The fish jumped immediately after it was hooked. "Soon as she saw how big it was, she didn't want any part of her husband said. Mrs. Lodermeier handed the rod to her husband, who fought and landed the fish. Because Mrs. Lodermeier hooked the pike, the record is listed in her name, her hus- band said. The fish has been mounted by a Lethbridge taxidermist and is to be hung at a Calgary fish hatchery, he said. The world's record northern pike weighed some 46 pounds and was taken from a New York state reservoir in 1940.

It is composed of district agriculturist Delton Jensen; farmers John Moreland and Dale McKenzie; and businessman Ralph Millhaem of Warner. The committee deals mostly with applications for farm loans. It is also an advisory body to the department of agriculture. Coun. Elda Mueller declined a suggestion that she be a member of the board, saying: "John Moreland lives right beside me.

RCMP band to perform The RCMP band will perform in two Southern Alberta com- munities in November as part of their provine-wide tour to 15 communities. The band will play at the Taber Civic Auditorium Nov. 5 at 8 p.m. and at F. P. Walsh High School in Fort Macleod Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. The Alberta tour by the band was designed to allow smaller communities in the province to participate hi the Alberta RCMP century celebrations. Warner committees named The panic scare resulting from a report of a possible outbreak of brucellosis in cat- tle across the Prairies was completely unfounded, said Elmer Young, assistant dis- trict veterinarian for the federal health of animals branch of the Canada depart- ment of agriculture. Dr. Young told The Herald this week from his Calgary of- fice a RCMP spokesman who released information to the press was wrong and "should be shot." A large herd of cattle from the Hanna area was 'Economics create depopulated by the health of animals branch due to a heavy infection of brucellosis, a bacterial infection which causes abortion in cattle and can be transmitted to humans through milk to cause un- dulant fever. Dr. Young said 396 cattle, about one third of them diagnosed as brucellosis reac- tors, were trucked to the Calgary Public Stockyards for shipment to Palmont Packers in Quebec. The animals were all moved into segregated pens in Calgary to await shipment via CN Railways. The pens in Calgary were then cleaned and disinfected after shipment. When the train reached Saskatoon, one of the animals was hurt when a partition dropped. Because CNR would have been held liable if he had continued to move the injured animal, it was unloaded in Saskatoon for slaughter. But instead of moving directly to a packing plant, the animal was sold through an auction market. It eventually was sent to Prince Albert for slaughter. Dr. Young stressed that the animal which escaped super- vision aboard the train was not one of the diagnosed brucellosis reactors. There is no chance the injured animal could have transmitted brucellosis, he said. Following movement of the tram, all pens were dis- infected in Winnipeg and Montreal, ensuring health standards enroute to Palmont Packers, he said The entire shipment was licenced for movement through the health of animals branch. CARDSTON (HNS) World economic problems and their effect on agriculture was the theme of the address given by Glen Purnell, provincial deputy minister of agriculture, at a joint meeting of the Cardston Lions and Rotary clubs here recently. He spoke of some of his ex- periences s in international work on behalf of the governments of Alberta and Canada, and with the United Nations. He saw thousands of beggars suffering from malnutrition being kept alive on scraps of food. In India a starving man died at his feet. Mr. Purnell criticized the economic conditions in America that result in U.S. cattlemen killing their young calves in protest. He said it is absolutely essential to com- bine efforts and reduce inflation. Work must be done throughout the world to im- prove the distribution of food. He told of efforts by the Alberta department of agriculture and the Alberta Export Agency to develop markets around the world to provide food where needed. In this way the Alberta producers can then market on a profitable basis, he said. 'Pass TV situation checked BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) The Cana- dian Radio Television Commission's depart- ment of com- munications is investigating com- plaints of poor televi- sion reception in the Crowsnest Pass area. A. R. Shaver, manager of systems development and technical evaluation for the CRTC, told town council in a recent letter that alleged interference said to be caused by Channel 8 and the loss of Channel 7 is being probed. At the same time, R. C. Johnson, CJOC-TV. station manager at Lethbridge, advised the town the matter has been drawn to the atten- tion of CFCN-TV Calgary. Louis Zak, Blainnore television technician, says he told town of- ficials two years ago that if the rebroadcast station was installed to operate on Channel 8 it would ruin Channel 7 reception. Cardston airport to be ready soon CARDSTON (HNS) aircraft should be landing on Cardston's new airstrip in about two weeks, town council learned at its organizational meeting this week. Oiling of the new airstrip one mile south and 1V2 milies east of town is being done this week.

LeRon Pitcher, the new mayor.. Town secretary Keith Bevans informed council that the federal winter capital pro- jects grant of has been approved.
