Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 31, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LfTHBRIOOE HERALD Thuraday, October City Scone irresponsible9 pesticide ads rapped Fog grounds flights from city A blanket of fog forced cancellation of all morning Time Air flights originating in Lethbridge, Calgary, Deer and Medicine Hat. ,_ f. A Time Air spokesman said up to 11 a.m. today, the firm had completed only one flight, from Grande Prairie to Edmon- ton, the only major airports in Alberta not affected by the weather. The weather office couldn't tell when the weather con- ditions, which reduced visibility to less than a quarter of a mile in SOdegree temperatures, would lift to permit resumption of air service. Almost half of Time Air's daily 42 departures have been affected by the weather. Pacific Western Airlines cancelled all airbus flights between Calgary and Edmonton at least to mid-morning while CP Air and Air Canada had cancelled several flights scheduled for the morning hours. Flights incoming to Calgary International Airport were diverted to Vancouver, Edmonton, Regina and Winnipeg. Pranksters 'rip off outhouse Somebody swiped a fanner's outhouse near Coaldale early this morning, and though RCMP called it "an early Halloween prank" they said the culprits if caught, would be charged. Lethbridge RCMP refused to release the name of the owner of the outhouse, saying the man was "quite angry." The incident occurred about 1 a.m. this morning on a farm one mile west and four miles north of Coaldale. Police said they received the complaint from the farmer, who said he got a quick glance of the culprits as they made off with his outhouse and disappeared into the fog. The officer predicted the outhouse would probably show up on some Coaldale street tonight. As tonight is Halloween, be urged motorists to take extra caution when driving, especially if the fog hasn't lifted. Audition times changed A change in auditon-times for the U of L production of Zoo Story has been announced. Auditions will be held Friday at 2 p.m. in the U of L drama studio and at 7 p.m. in the Lethbridge Public Library. The public is invited to try for roles in the play. Buses endorsed for disabled The Lethbridge Municipal Hospital board decided Wednesday to give its support to a brief given to toe city re- questing four mini buses to SPECIAL! WMtbend 36 Cup PARTY PERC FuBy automatic ThntMidtw pour spout Reg. 29.95 SPECIAL 23 88 Call Housewares 327-5767 DOWNTOWN transport the handicapped and elderly in Lethbridge. The brief, prepared by Disabled on the Move and un- der study by the city, could benefit disabled patients in the Auxiliary Hospital and nursing homes in the city, LMH Administrator Andy Andreachuk said. The board agreed that Disabled on the Move should make dear that the buses are available to institutions as well as individuals. Disabled on the Move has asked the city to purchase and operate the buses with money the city is receiving from the provincial department of highways. Mr. Andreachuck suggested board trustees or hospital ad- ministration speak to city council on behalf of the brief, but no decision was made. BUREAU OF PUBLIC AFFAIRS VIDEOTAPED PESTICIDE HEARINGS Machine tree clearing suggested for employment By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer Irresponsible advertising that promotes want on use of pesticides should be stopped, said Frances Schultz of Monarch in a private brief to the Alberta Environment Conservation Authority Wednesday. Mrs. Schultz told the public hearing into pesticide and her- bicide use at the Exhibition Grounds she welcomed the shift from pesticide recommendations to those of cultural methods to combat crop pests on the part of research scientists. She said she has failed to see the same responsible posi- tion taken by chemical com- panies and individual users. She said chemical com- panies should be required to list the hazards of their products while promoting the effectiveness and uses. She suggests listing ex- treme toxicity, longevity, hazards from residues and special equipment needed to the benefit of the user. Taking a swipe at the home gardener who accounted for million in pesticide and herbicide purchases in 1971, Mrs. Schultz said chemicals are on sale at so many places, the public assumes them to be relatively safe. But home gardeners should be encouraged to use natural controls and when necessary, low toxicity, short-lived pesticides. "Because of the time and relatively small area, gar- deners should do more hand she said. She also questioned the use of medications in animal feeds, apparent careless and unnecessary use of cKemicals by the municipality and use of chemicals in rural school yards. Rapid urban growth and aquatic weed growth go hand in hand and it has reached the stage only chemicals can help clear clogged canals, says a 2prssentative the Alberta Irrigation Projects Association. Jake Thiessen of Lethbridge told the Alberta Environment Conservation Authority Wednesday the problem of aquatic weeds can be attributed to the increased concentrations of nitrates and phosphates in river waters below cities that have had rapid population and in- dustrial growth. He cited Calgary in particular. He said the rivers actually act like a seed bed for these weeds, polluting irrigation systemsNand reservoirs with the fast growing plants. Such weeds in a canal cause rapid reduction in stream velocity that can be corn- batted only through more water added to the system. If more water is added, the threat of washouts is at hand, resulting in flooded crops. But if more water isn't added, farmers will face burned crops and reduced yields. The only solution is to get rid of the weeds, he said. Chemical control started in Alberta in 1961, said Mr. Thiessen. He said environmentalists should not be alarmed. The chemical is introduced into the water as a gas and-dis- sipates within about 12 miles of its entry. But because the weeds can reoccur within three weeks, more treatment is needed. Mr. Thiessen said if any agencies are concerned with the occasional destruction of a few low-quality fish in canals due to treatment for weeds, they should come up with methods to confine the fish to rivers.

Clearing power transmis- sion lines and telephone lines by hand instead of by pesticides was suggested' Wednesday before the Alberta Environment Conservation Authority hearing here. Lome Brooks, ad- ministrator of the Neegan Society in Edmonton, said that manual removal of trees and brush should be con- sidered on about a million acres in the province. The move would provide employment, reduce welfare rolls and save herbicide and application costs, he said. He said if his group, in- terested in .the rehabilitation of dissident native people and others, could operate a pilot project for two years, he- would be able to economically compare the two methods. Mr. Brooks pointed up the benefits of mechanical clear- ing against the use of her- bicides which, he said, can't be closely controlled. He said herbicide use is quite satisfactory to that seg- ment of society which require control of the trees and other vegetation. It is efficient, economically viable and can be carried out rapidly. But the total defoliation method now employed leaves a trail of dead and blackened trees which are unsightly and barren, he said. Man must also place a value on erosion control, shelter PENNER'S PLUMBING 1209 2nd Ave. S. Phone from wind, cost of heating, pleasure of enjoyment of the outdoors, price of snow removal, loss of transporta- tion and possible social dis- tress, all less controlable through herbicide use than by mechanical clearing, he said. Even more important said Mr. Brooks, is the loss of natural habitat for small animals and valuable insects. The complete defoliation of normally wooded areas leaves thousands of acres of land denuded of the kinds of food which could enhance the game population of the area.

Profile low at A UMA Lethbridge is maintaining something of a low profile at this year's1 annual get together of the province's urban municipalities in Ed- monton. The city sent no resolutions to the four-day meeting of the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association which ends Friday, and sent no official delegation. "As far as we're concerned, we could support some of the resolutions, but most of our problems have been looked said Mayor Andy Anderson, back in the city to- day after attending the first two days of the conference. City council's four freshmen aldermen also went to the convention, but three of them could only stay for the first day's orientation course for newly elected officials. Aid. Don Le Baron planned to take in more of the conference. The association is the lobby- ing arm of Alberta's cities and towns and each year a number of resolutions are drafted, debated passed and sent off to the provincial government. Pre'mier Peter Lougheed and Municipal Affairs Minister Dave Russell were scheduled to speak to the conference today.
