Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 26, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Tueiday, Sepiember 56, South crops endangered by wicked winter snap yB RIC SWI11AHT Ilerald Slalf Writer The Cliinook, a saving factor for farmers in southern Alberta [or years, is needed now if the 1972 harvest is to be completed with only limited damage caus- ed by early snow storms. Snow fell throughout the re- gion Saturday and Sunday, dropping up to eight inches in Eome areas and bringing har- vest operations to a grinding halt. The snow, combined with fog, rain and freezing temperatures, is causing havoc with as much as 50 par cent of the unthreshed crops in the western portion of the. province. District agriculturists are reporting shrinking kernels, bleaching conditions and gene- eral weathered crops through- out the region. The only thing which will save the remaining grain is warm, dry weather.

He said farmers can usually pect a good month in October finish the harvest operation, t if not, "we'll be combining xt May." He said if farmers get the est winds and warm weather, arvest could resume in a eek. Yields in the Pincher Creek ea have been running ahead normal with 80 bushels per ere reported for oals, 40 busli- s per acre for wheat and 40 usliels per aero for barley. M. Lyons said the caltle In .e area are withstanding tho irly winter onslaught well, hey are all on good graying astures. Allen Toley, district agricul- irist for Willow Creek working ut of Clsresholm, said 95 per ent of the crops are swathed ut less than 50 per cent are hreshed. The crops are lying under two o three inches of snow. He said armcrs won't be able to do nything in the field for at least ne week unless something happens. "It looks like one of those years when the rains make ;ood crops and then don't slop he said. Harvesting is slightly better than 50 per cent complete in lire southern part of the report- ing region. Mr. Steed said tho delayed harvest will allow more damage by ducks because of the increased time the grain will be on the ground. Farmers in the eastern por- tion of the province are better off. Harvest operations have been virtually completed in the Medicine Hat and Foremost re- gions.

Open Thursday Until 9 p.m. Hurlburt speaks 011 reserve By MARLENE COOKSHAW Herald Staff Writer A "house of ill repute" was torn down Friday and its owner referred to it as the end of an era. The red brick building "went back before the turn of the cen- said Bob Niven. "It was one of toe few remaining in the area." Former Lethbridge police chief James Carpenter believes that It was the last one dating back that early. Most of tho others were situated on 1st to 3rd Ave., now a business area, or on the ground now owned by Marshall Auto Wreckers Ltd. "They've long since been torn he said. 218 1st Ave. S. has been Uie property of Mr. Niven for the last five years, during which i has been emply. Before its demise, and after it had served its primary pur pose, the building served as a ts Illegitimate beginnings until he found the building mention- ed in Red Lights on .the Prairies, a book by James ray about prostitution in early west towns. The house's madam was a woman called Helen Howard. She and her business were men- tioned in the book in connection Chinese laundry, a rooming louse and a residence. Mr. Niven wasn't aware with a scandal in the early 1900s. The police chief at the time, whose name was GUlespie, was accused of collecting money from that House, as well as others. Ms. Howard and the other madams spoke up in his de- fence, and it was discovered that the funds collected had been for various charities and tragedy survival funds. However the scandal was too much for a small tmyn, and Chief Gillespie was dismissed from duly. The book includes several ref- erences to early local happen- ings and has proven of inlerest to many in the area. It is avail- able al cily bookslores and the public library. Mr. Niven had the building lorn down to make room for tho expansion of his company, Niven Truck Equipment Ltd., located next door.

Hear ye. Hear ye. Provincial governments are well along the road towards stripping the federal government of any and all power to, in essence, a symbolic figure such as the present monarchy. First in a long list of reasons for such action is the demand for power by provincial cabinets. They just simply want to run the show and say they are more on top of local situations than the feds in Ottawa. Hardly the case. The immediate end result will be the duplication of many costly services. However, by stripping the feds of their power, Ottawa won't be in a position to offer any of lip that is. It all lucked off with Quebec demands for its rights rightly or wrongly and was followed, alter a decent interval, by all the provinces jump- ing on the power trip wagon. While in the same breath telling Ottawa it's ser- vices aren't required, the provinces are also perform- ing the same act on municipalities. Little by little municipal powers are being strip- ped in the same fashion as our national govern- ment's. Ah, says Joe average provincial citizen: 'Tis for the best. Bah! says I. Soon Canada may find itself a mum- bo jumbo of six to 10 little countries, each fighting for a little bit of the Yukon, North West Territories and Labrador. British Columbia's W. A. C. Bennett and Quebec are already screaming their own tone of nationalism. Diminish the power of the federal government further and, before you know it, the provinces will not only have their own trade commissions scattered throughout the world, but also little embassies. It's true, the federal method of government, as we knew it in the past, needs some revamping. But certainly not a death stripping. Bringing it home it could mean each province competing with the other for agriculture sales abroad. Pretty tough for the little guy to try and outdo the giant south of the border. Then again, maybe the over-all intention is to force United States territorial expansion across the 49th before they solve their own internal problems. If not, there's the advantage of joining the third world African and Asian countries in the United Nations: each province with its own U.N. of- fice. If so, perhaps we'll have to allow, under pressure, massive immigration of non-caucasians. AHA! Now it takes on an international flavor. Hurrah. But what about the political giants who rule the taste of that flavor? Stubb Ross said he will file intervention with the Canadian Transport Commission against the Thun- derbird application, which seeks to add Falrview, Fox Creek, Edson and Calgary to ts routes. Thunderbird is al- ready serving Grande Prair- ie, Edmonton, Hlnton and White Court. Mr. Ross said he understands other airlines whos interests arc affected will also file interven- tions. The deadline for interven. tions Is Oct. 18. On Time's appeal against tho CTC division awarding the Grande Prairie route to Thun derbird, Mr. Ross said he un- derstacds TraEsport Minister Don Jamleson will make an ar. nouncement in Ottawa short The Alberta government has pledged Its support to Time, and deputy premier Dr. Hugh llorner said while visiting Leth- bridge tiiree months ago that the provincial government was considering licensing air trans- portation within Alberta. Daily report ordered in probation A Lelhbridge youth re- cently turned 16, Monday, re- ceived tlie harsiiest probation ever ordered in provincial judge's court by Judge L. W. Hudson. Keith Allen Godsalve was or- ered to report to a probation officer once a day Monday irough Friday; to seek gain- ul employment; to follow a strict curfew of p.m. week ights and p.m. week- ends; and to bs of good conduct and keep the peace. The strict probation was Is- sued in the form of a two-week remand in the custody of a pro- lation officer for the youth, who lad been in much trouble just >rior to his sixteenth birthday. Following tho court's order Dave Shirley, local probation officer assigned to the ease, told The Herald "The probation was not meant to be easy, but Lo function as a form of reha- bilitation. I'm sure the strict remand will have some bearing on the youth's future Licence bylaw delayed A new licensing bylaw set- ting a standard fee for local business licences was shelved by city council Monday for two weeks. The cily solicitor was In- structed to bring the bylaw back with several minor amendments suggested by council. Home occupation offices re- ceived the largest share of council's attention. Alderman Vera Ferguson suggested they bo checked periodically to de- termine if any has developed into major businesses, in which case they should bo paying regular businesses taxes and renting commercial space. City Manager Tom Nutting said some time limit should be attached to home occupation permits. A clause In the bylaw provid- ing for a daily charge for itinerant shows was questioned as being too broad and imply- ing that entertainers in the lo- cal bars would be responsible for the fee. An amendment will specify itinerant shows in pub- lic assembly buildings. The recommended fee of annually for businesses will likely remain Intact, Second film set The second in a series of films featuring the work of Vic- torian authors will be shown to- night at in Ihe Yates Mem- orial Centre.
