Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Stpttmber 28, 1974 AHC inquiry checks Germany, England EDMONTON (CP) Rod McLennan, commis- sion counsel for the judicial inquiry into the Alberta Housing Corporation, will travel to and England to try to gather more information about a loan from a German bank, it was announced Friday. The inquiry was ten- tatively adjourned Sept. 20 after 21 days of testimony the presiding judge, Mr. Justice J. M. Cairns, said there was "something that's being hidden The judge told the clos- ing session he would "cer- tainly like to find out" how a million loan to the corporation in 1969 by the Main Bontal Bank in Frankfurt, Germany, was negotiated. Testimony revealed the loan was made at 9% per cent enterest and a nine per cent discount. The loan's effective rate of interest increased to 14.94 per cent after several re evaluations of the German mark. lood Food prices going up STORE located at 420 6th St. South WILL CLOSE PERMANENTLY at p.m. Sat., Sept. 28th L-MART wishes to thank you for your patronage and will continue to serve you from our location at: 324 Mayor Magrath Drive 01TAWA (CP) The food prces review board said Fri- day that food prices will con- tinue to climb this year because of poor harvests and the increasing cost of labor, packaging and fuel. Chairman Beryl Plymptre said the board has had to re- verse earlier optimistic fore- casts suggesting a possible cut in grocery costs. By the end of the year, food bills would be roughly 15 per cent higher than they were in 1973. She told a news conference following' the release of the board's fifth quarterly report that consumers, corporations, unions and governments must exercise -nore restraint, WILDE ROSE HOMES Showing Their Fine Line of Single and Double Wide Mobile Homes.

Mrs. Plumptre said she had no pat answers to the increas ing problem of rising prices. But she urged consumers to cut down consumption of con- venience foods, spend more time shopping and, if possible, to "go back to the old- fashioned way of food preparation." At the same time, she again urged the government to reconsider putting an end to a five-cents-a-quart subsidy on fluid milk and to watch closely any increases in the cost of bread. Mrs. Plumptre said she realized the government would be increasing family allowances and other social security payments made to provinces in line with increases in living costs. However, she said such in- dexing will not likely be enough to offset increases in the cost of basic foods such as bread and milk. While the board made no recommendations in its report, Mrs. Plumptre said members of her organization had been looking into the prac- tice of providing poor people with food stamps and of supplying free milk to school children. The former, she said, "is not the kind of program Canadians don't like the stigma attached." But something like the free milk program "might well be considered." The report itself said in- creases in the wholesale price of a number of raw materials have yet to be fully reflected in selling prices to consumers. Warrant issued at Winnipeg WINNIPEG (CP) A Canada wide warrant has been issued for a suspect wanted in connection with an incident Thursday in which a court official lost his left hand when a booby trapped alarm clock exploded. The man, whose name has not been released by rolice, is wanted on a charge of attempted murder. Charles Gilraine, 54, chief clerk of County Court, lost his hand Thursday morning when an electric alarm clock he was holding exploded as he plugg- ed it into a wall outlet at the law courts building. Mr. Gilraine underwent sur- gery Thursday and was reported to be in fair condition Friday. THE Sunday Crossword (formerly the New York Herald Tribune Crossw ord) Edited by Robert B.

Any Scandinavian can acan da navy. By DENNIS McDONALD Alberta Fish and Wildlife Ninth in a series Like people, pheasants follow a remarkably regular daily pattern of activity and movement! A typical day for a two- week-old pheasant brood in early summer begins with the birds roosting in a patch of cattails around the margin of a wetland. In the glow of the false dawn that commonly proceeds a western sunrise, the birds awaken and move slowly around the wetland margin; the chicks chasing insects in the nearby marsh grass while their mother gleans seeds from western wheatgrass. As the sun floods the Prairie wijh warmth, the brood moves into an adjacent pasture where the young vorasciously consume insects while the hen plucks tender shoots of new grown grass. By late morning, the sun is high overhead and rapidly ris- ing temperatures encourage the brood to seek cooler com- fort in the shade of a nearby fenceline. Here they loaf through the afternoon; the hen dusting herself in the loose soil near the base of a rosebush. By late afternoon, hunger stimulates the brood to return to the pasture to feed once more. As shadows lengthen in the setting sun, the hen marshals her brood to a nearby roadside in prepara- tion for the evening's roost. She takes advantage of this opportunity to replenish the grit in her gizzard by plucking gravel from the edge of the road. Pheasants, like chickens, utilize this grit to grind up their food. As darkness deepens, the brood settles down for the night. Recent studies of pheasants marked with small radio tran- smitters have added much to our knowledge of the daily and seasonal patterns of pheasant activity. Most pheasant broods seldom travel more than 400 yards in a day while carrying out feeding, loafing and roosting activities. Throughout the entire brooding period of several months duration, the broods' travels will likely not take them more than a quarter mile from their birthplace. The daily pattern of activity will be altered by weather conditions, habitat changes and seasonal events such as breeding, nesting and brood rearing. Wet weather will limit the birds' activity, particularly during the brooding period, as they remain in thick cover in an attempt to keep warm by keeping their feathers dry. If such weather persists for long periods, the birds are forced to leave their shelter to seek food. Many die due to ex- posure during such times. The heavy overnight dews commonJy occurring in Alberta in the fall likewise discourage the birds from utilizing certain feeding areas in the morning as they are reluctant to dampen their plumage. As swmmer progresses, the diet of the young pheasant switches from insects to include greenery, grass seeds and grain. Accompanying this change is the disappearance of cover in many pastures and roadsides due to hay mowing or livestock grazing. As a result, most pheasant broods move into Cultivated crops to roost, feed and loaf. By fail, the disappearance pf these crops with harvesting requires another adjustment in their daily pattern of activi- ty and movement By this time, the brood has matured and they disband as a family group to go their separate ways. When the first icy winds foretell the coming of winter, yet another adjustment oc- curs in the daily activity pattern of pheasants. The birds seek wintering areas to shelter them from the onslaught of winter blizzards. Such areas must afford protection from the wind and access to an adequate food supply nearby. Typical wintering habitat in Alberta consist of cattail marshes around wetlands or in seepage areas, brush filled coulees and draws, dense willow clumps around sloughs and along irrigation canals, field and farmstead shelterbelts and brushy fencelines. These areas are diminishing in size and number in Southern Alberta as more land is diverted to other uses. Though pheasants will migrate several miles to seek suitable winter shelter, studies indicate that each area of approximately eight square miles should have at least one adequate wintering area in order to maintain its pheasant population. While in wintering areas, pheasants will seldom move more than a quarter mile from cover to seek food and a potential wintering area is of little value unless adequate food is within this distance from it. Due to the relative scarcity of wintering areas, extremely large concentrations of birds commonly flock together on the sites during the wintering months. Occasionally, over 000 pheasants may occupy a single wintering area. It is at this time that pheasant pop- ulations are most vulnerable to predators, disease and ex- treme climatic events. In next week's article, we shall begin examining the influence of seven major mor- tality factors upon pheasant populations: weather, predators, hunting, pesticides, diseases, inter-specific com- petition and habitat destruc- tion. Auto workers still striking BRAMPTON, Ont. (CP) Talks between American Mo- tors (Canada) Ltd. and the striking United Auto Workers (CUAW) made no progress Monday but will continue today, Floyd Gill, president of Brampton Local 1285, said today. Mr. Gill said the talks in Milwaukee, held collectively to cover strikebound plants in Brampton and Wiscon- hung up on "local is- sues that do not belong in the master agreement." Mr. Gill said if an over-all agreement is reached, local issues can be ironed out between the company and un- ion locals. He said accident and sickness insurance payments, voluntary overtime and in- surance grievance procedures are still at issue at the Brampton plant, but could be "settled fast" at a local level.
