Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 18, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta
24 THE LETHBR1DGE HERALD Friday, September 18, 1970 Harvesting Operations Halted By Poor Weather Conditions OTTAWA (CP) Poor weather has halted harvesting in almost all districts of the Prairies, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics reported in its final the season on crop conditions. The 'bureau's correspondents said rain and low temperatures with frost and snow in parts of Saskatchewan and Alberta have forced farmers to stop harvest- ing. About half the harvest is com- pleted in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Late-sown crops are threatened by frost ill both provinces. Progress is better in Alberta before the bad weather and some southern-area farmers there have finished their har- vests. In the central and northern districts, however, conditions are much the same as in the other two provinces. In a special rust report from t h e agriculture department's Winnipeg research station, the bureau says cereal rusts Have been prevalent. The lateness of the crop in Manitoba and south- eastern Saskatchewan contrib- uted to wide destruction of crops by the fungus disease. Field observations indicate a loss of about nine million bushels of wheat in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Rains throughout the southern part of British Columbia have greatly improved pasture condi- tions. Snow and rain in the Peace River country have ham- pered harvesting. Apple picking now is general in the south. Wet cool weather in the Mar Limes also has delayed harves ing there.

Quebec Men Have High Cancer Rate MONTREAL (CP) Th death rate from mouth cance In men in Quebec is almost dou ble the average rate in the res at Canada, says a Toronto den tistry professor. Dr. D. L. Anderson of the Unl versify of Toronto gave a quid statistical comparison to delegates attending a combine! meeting of the Canadian ant American academies of perio- dontolgy. Dr. Anderson said cancer is relatively uncommon in the mouth compared with other body sites. But the death rate in men in Quebec is about 80 per million population. He said cancer of the moutt lining, which occurs predomi- nantly in men, is highest hi rural populations, and is mosi often detected in the lower lip. Most lip cancers, said Dr. An- derson, appear to be due to long exposure to sun rays. While the incidence of lip can- cer in women does not vary from province to province, in men it is more frequent in Sas- katchewan and Prince Edward Island, with a heavy population of farmers and fishermen. About SO per cent of lip can- cers are found in men while 75 per cent of cancers in the lining of the mouth occur in men. Why women show a lower in- cidence is not known yet.

The president didn't mention it, but the majority of the audi ence rose and applauded when he appealed to responsible col lege administrators, faculty aw student leaders "to stand up and be counted" to saVe higher education. Nixon said some students he :alked to afterwards seemec embarrassed at the lack of re spect shown by the hecklers.

Whitmey has criti- cized statements made by Ray Villiston, British Columbia ands and forests minister, con- cerning low water levels on the 'eace River. "It's obvious the minister is ot fully informed about the roblems facing the Town of 'eace River's water .layer Whitmey said. Mr. Williston earlier this week told the chamber of com- merce in Dawson Creek, B.C., lat the problems in Peace :iver "are insignificant when he over-all benefits of flood control on the river are con- idered."

Yields of potatoes are above average on Island farms that have begun to bring in the crop. But yields of later crops may run below average.

Potatoes are being harvested now for delivery next week to processing plants and harvest for storage will begin next week. In Nova Scotia, the last month has been very wet. Fields are soft, delaying harvesting of most crops. Reports from the eastern townships of Quebec indicate normal temperatures. Some light frosts have occurred in Wolfe county.

Nun Order Reprimanded By Vatican NEW YORK (AP) The School Sisters of St. Francis, an order of nuns, have been sharply rebuked by the Vatican for indulging in permissiveness, "exaggerated and showing a tendency to "identify with the world."
