Four policemen will ride in cars owned by ham radio operators who will have a base station set up at police headquarters. In addition, 12 cars owned by members of the radio club will patrol the city and report to their base sta- tion which will also be set up at the police station Insp. Coupland emphasized that the radio club members will be observing only and do not have any police authority. Two vehicles from the city's electric works department and four from the public works department will also be patrolling the city for troubles connected to those departments.

Dr Cheng said studies have indicated when the particles of tood are very small, bacteria can digest nutrients more quickly They eat so fast thev rupture, spilling their contents into the animal's first stomach. The bacteria contribute to the slime material. He said tests also show small feed particles cause an increase in the acid level of the animal's first stomach, adding to the problem Dr Hironaka said cattlemen used to think high energy diets with a large AIR VAC 1811 2nd Ave. S.

To prepare barley for feed rations, it is put through a rolling machine which con- sists of large rollers spaced closely Dr. Hironaka found that when the barley is very dry. it shatters when passed between the rollers, creating very small particles He then suggested to farmers that they drill a hole near the upper end of a grain auger and attach a water hose While the barley is augered into a bin. water is applied to increase the moisture content of the kernels After sitting for a few hours, the barley is put through the rolling machine without any shattering In some cases the kernel was just cracked and not broken into particles, stiii allowing lull use of the food This solved the bloat problem for the most part, he said. But there are other side benefits When the farmer makes his Iced ration, he has no dust problem because of the water and higher kernel moisture content And with the larger par- ticles, cattle eat more feed. During a 250 day test, cattle eating larger particles gained 60 pounds more than cattle eating smaller particle feed during the same period. Dr Hironaka said he will continue to work on bloat problems, trying to hnd out actually what happens. Through these efforts, he hopes to find other means to prevent bloat. Much of the work on bloat is through tests on cattle at the research station that are lilted with a special valve which allows easy access to the digestive system of the animal. By removing a plug, the scientists can determine the action of the digestive system on a particular type of feed. Samples of the feed can be retrieved from the cattle and the build up of slime and foam can be calculated according to the ration fed the animal. The office building shopp- ing complex at Standoff will provide added impetus to economic development on the Blood Reserve, the assistant deputy minister of Indian and northern affairs said Friday. Peter Lesaux made the remark after a ribbon cutting ceremony marking the official opening of the Shot Both Sides Building The building will house all offices of the Blood band ad- ministration, a medical clinic and pharmacy, a post office, supermarket and restaurant, and a branch of the Bank of Nova Scotia. Band officials are hopeful that commercial services now offered in the building will serve to attract new industry to the town. During the dedication ceremonies. Fred Gladstone, president of Red Crow Development Corp., the band's holding company, said rental revenue from building tenants will pay for the 000 structure in 15 years.

All fertilizers should be applied by the end of August Winter fertilizers, which are applied in late October, are used in Northern Alberta hut Mr Brown doesn't recom- mend them for the South because moisture that accom- panies chinooks is likely to wash them away Applying manure to a lawn in the fall causes it to warm up earlier in the spring because its dark color absorbs more heat Mr. Brown says a manured lawn gets greener faster but one reason it isn't applied in Southern Alberta is because combined with wet chinook weather it can be quite messy All leaves and boards, or any such objects, should be picked up before the first snow. It left, they reduce air circulation and light which could result in damage to the lawn Skating rinks also have this el feet on lawns, Mr. Brown .says It's possible to have an average lawn, after having a skating rink, but it won't be a prize turf. He prelers to let his lawn go into winter a little long and moist When cutting in the fall the blade on the mower should be raised hall as high again to what it was in the summer Lawns don't lose as much water in the fall as in the summer so they don't have to be watered as much If you've been watering once a week in the summer should water once every two weeks in the Mr. Brown says. A good test to check a lawn's moisture is to dig out a core of the lawn and examine it Concerning garden care, Mr. Brown says most gardens should be dug up in the fall. This exposes the soil to frost which tends to open it up. Digging leaves into the gar- den soil is a good idea. One can use a rotary mower or a mulcher for this Leaves can also be used as protection for herbaceous plants such as peonies, delphiniums and chrysanthemums Their roots survive the winter but the top part of the plant dies. Bulbs should be planted in the fall The best time is early October but they can still be planted, now. says Mr. Brown Trees should be pruned in the spring rather than the fall because then winter damage can be assessed Mr. Brown strongly emphasized the above hints for lawn and garden care app- ly to most yards but not to all If a person has a special problem he should contact the parks section of the communi- ty services department Nova Scotia, and from govern- ment grants The band council put up about 20 per cent of the construction cost Man admits thefts A man now serving time in the Lethbridge Correctional Institution pleaded guilty in provincial court Friday morn- ing to stealing money from two Fort Macleod service stations early this year. Gordon John Ramchuck, 30. formerly of Calgary, took about in cash and in cheques from Tourist Texaco Jan 10 He also took about cash and in che- ques from Scougall's Garage Feb. 10.
