University President elect, Dr. Bill Beckcl will be formally installed in office as part of the opening ceremonies. Plans are also being made to present an honorary degree to an unidentified, but well-known academic person. A physical education centre, built entirely with publically-do- naled Three Alberta Universi- ties campaign funds, will also be opened at the official dedi- cation ceremonies. Dr. Beckel said the core- rnonie.1 will serve to announce the third university is open and ready for business. Dennis O'ConneU, chairman of the Opening 72 Commiltee said the opening of the U of L will add a broad new spectrum of intellectual interest to the academic world. By virtue of its unique setting the official opening will add a flavor never before present in the academic world. Treat warble flies Now is the lime lo treat for warble flies. Murray McLelland, associate district agriculturist for the Counties of Lelhbridge and Warner, says eattle owners in this area should advance the Nov. 30 cut-off date given on the label of systemic insecti- cides by one month. Warble treatment should be done by Oct. 31, rather than Nov. 30, because the earlier loss of snow cover in this area ad- vances the warble fly life cycle by one month. Cattlemen treating after the Oct. 31 dale run the risk of kill- ing (he warble fly larvae in Ihe enimal's esophagus, causing swelling which prevents Ihe an- imal from belching- The end result is that the animal will bloat. Lelhbridgc and Warner coun- ties are offering a cattle spray- ing service this year, the syslenuc insecticide Ko-Hal. Cost in Lethbridge is CO cents per cow and -10 cents per calf. In Warner it is 40 cents per gallon of insecticide used. Farmers may contact the eounly offices to arrange for the service, which includes the necessary equipment and man- power. Pnorily will be given to early callers. Ncguvon and Ruclene will not be available Ilirough either county office but can be pur- chased at most chemical retail stores.
