Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 31, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAIO Tuesday, October 31, 1972- Ciil'tivaliou lo What effect cJoes fall cultiva- tion have on controlling Uerlhn ;u my worms? Although there is no factual tint a available on (he cultural control of rayesocd insects, ob- servations by farmers, them- Eolvos, aiul staff members of the Alberla department of agricul- ture have indicated that (all cultivation with a deep-tiller (chisel plow) 111-13' reduce both RerUm armyworm and red tur- nip beetle populations. Provincial entomologist and pest control specialist, Mike Dolinski, says euitivaling to a light worms depth of four or five Inches iivjuvc sonic of the Ber- tha army worm pupae and will expose the pupae to natural en- vironmental stresses. However, I lie percentage of mortality from environmental stress is not known. Since the red turnip beetle lays its eggs in the fall near the soil surface, (here is a good chance that these insects can be controlled by either deep or shallow cultivation which will disturb, and possibly de- stroy, the unprotected eggs. we'll install your snow tires for For your convenience we suggest you call for an appointment STORES Corner 3rd Ave. and 8 th St. 5.

Associated with the r o il e o business since 1928, when he en- tered his first rodeo ut Milk River, Salty now gols enjoy- ment from watching bis sons, Cordon, Roddy and Tommy in action. Resides competing Gor- don is also a half owner in Mc- Go'.vnn Rodeo company. Salty was born Warner in 1912 and still mnkoo tliat south- ern Alberta town the home base for his ranch. He started out in Hie sport riding steel's but soon graduated to the bareback broncs, bulls and his favorite event, saddle bronc riding. He also made liis mark as a top-notch steer clec- orafor and bull dogger. "Ilodeo was a lot of fun and one of the biggest thrills I had winning the bronc riding in Australia back in 1941 as well as placing second in the bull riding. I was down there for two months with Harley he related. His biggest disappointment? "When 1 got too old to rodeo." The saddle brone equipment Waldo used hasn't changed much over tlw years. In fact his three sons have all used his .saddle in the bronc riding event at one lime or another ar.d Tommy is sliil using it tuday. IIAKEBACK "When I slarled riding bare- back broncs Ihey slit used a loose rope, much like the bull riders use Salty re- called. Today the bareback riclei use a cinch with a suiicase- lypc handle nltached. Although Salty didn't a Canadian or a world lilla during his active rodeo career he did finish second in both standings on a numlxM- of occasions, lie also placed second at I he Cal- gary Stampede in the decorat- ing and in 1M2 he won She dle hrone riding at the I'endel- ton Roundup. Sally rodcoetl with some ot Ihe best. "Pete 'knight. Carl Olsen, Floyd Peters, Herman Liiulcr, Charlie Ivins, Arnold Montgomery, Frank McDonald there fellows would make some of today's youngsters sit up and take notice I'll iell you." Of the or so broncs he's been on Salty recalled Easy Money and Duster as being among the best. "I was on Dus- ter just about a year prior to liim bucking off Pete Knight and killing Waldo sadly remembered. "The horses in our day were mostly wild. They would buck only once or twice ;i year, not like today's bucking regular. They were tougher lo handle, both in and out of the chules, mainly because they didn't know what was going on." "We were a hardier breed in those be said. "Why, I can recall decorating pound steers. Don't get me wrung, today's ixiys are better riders. They .spur more, and better too. But they don't have it as hard as we did then." In Sally's day travel was done "any darn bus, Irain, old cars. Nights were spent in hotels and quite often tents. Today's cowboys travel in elaborate truck and camper outfits and some ever, fly their own planes. "Places like Carmaugay, Pic- UTC Butle, Vulcan and Milk River, along with those still on today's Southern Circuit, used to have good lie re- called. While some these shows have gone by the boards new ones have sprung '.ip to take their place. Salty still enjoys rodeo and lakes particular enjoyment In the accomplishmcnls of his sons. He sees a great future for the sport with the advent of roping clubs, the amateur cir- cuits and the influx of young- sters. MONEY "Tire money they make (oday is really something. We didn't make anything like that back (ten. I don't know how much money T won over the years but 1 do know it wouldn't com- pare with what (hey get today." Like most cowboys, seeming- ly Ihe hardiest breed of men in the sporting fraternity, Salty makes light of his injuries. "I broke my collar bone shoul- der two or three times. Broke my ribs and knee cap too, but 1 never broke my leg, I puejs." Waldo "Salty" Ross Even "Down Under" you're 5! ill on top with A.M. A. Travel!
