Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 'HE HERALu ihurSaoy, April 5, J OTTAWA (CP) Apart from :hermal pollution, dangers of radiation escape and disposal of nuclear wastes, there probably s not much difference between the Canadian-designed nuclear stations and ihe United Ends jungle life This Papuan, about 50 and identified as Boni Meki, is shown after he emerged from the jungle Tuesday and disclosed that he had been hiding from Japanese forces that had inducted him into a work gang in 1942 shortly after they occupied the island. Meki stayed in the jungie completely tjlone, living off berries and snakes, not knowing that the war had ended 28 years before. stock inve ven Safer than U.S. counterparts Canadian atomic power stations hold edge States stations, the Commons committee ou natural resources and public works was told Tues- day. But Donald Watson, vice-pres- ident of Atomic Energy of Can- ada Ltd. said Canadian engineers think the Canadian system is more efficient in the terms of dealing with these problems.

Mr. MacDonald made the re- mark after his clients we.e each fined in provincial court on charges laid under the Wheat Board Act. The farmers originally plead- ed not guilty, but changed their pleas "to get it over MacDc-nald said. The five were among a group of farmers from the Bentley area charged earlier this year. Twenty n're have already guilty, and H have en- tered not guilty pleas. Most of the fines have been but one man was fined on a num- ber of counts cf over-delivery. Mr. MacDonald said that one of the five men fined, Melvin Baumbach. was only 52 bushels over the limit. Others fined were Gordon Beranek, Ray C. MrNaught, Max Moore and Selma Wine. engineers think the Canadian system is more efficient in terms of dealing with these problems. "We're not saying the U.S. systems are unsafe, because the engineering design makes it he said replying to ques- tions about which systems were the least polluting and least hazardous. Earlier, Donald Macdonald, energy minister in charge of AECL, a Crown corporation, said the Canadian-designed Candv-systems had proven that Cenada was right to follow an independent course in develop- ment of nuclear power. "If I can give a little com- he said, "Pickering is a splendid example.'' The December output of power from Pickering was higher than in any o ther nu- clear station in the world, he said. Output for that month was 1.09 billion kilowatt hours. Opposition members on the committee were more con- cerned with safety of nuclear power plants, however, and asked what were the levels of radiation allowed from these stations. Dr. D. G. Hurst, president of the Atomic Energy Control Beard, the government agency which is concerned with the regulation of atomic energy in Canada and with safety con- trols, said all plants operate well within international safety standards, which allow a max- imum radiation escape of 500 millirems a year. The U.S. recently has pro- posed reducing this to five mil- lirems a year, he said, but has not made any definite decision. Canadian stations probably average about five to 30 milli- rems a year, Dr. Hurst said but he added that Canada should stay with the inter national standard. Randolph Harding (NDP- Kootenay West) asked why Can- ada did not plan to reduce radi- ation output to the lowest pos- sible standards. Mr. WatsMi said it was matter of cost. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental MechanK Capitol Furniture Bldg. PHONE 328-7684 TORONTO (CP) Babson's Canadian Reports Ltd. has a word of advice for the would-be investor: "Get rid of the idea you can outfox the market and make a killing.'' Discouraging as that advice may be, it is the initial word of caution extended by most in- vestment dealers. "All too often, the investor un- wittingly works against his own best interests because he has failed to sort out his motives for being in the market in the first place.'' Babson's said in a re- cent investment letter. "No one objects to a gambler taking a chance but it is absurd for a man to say he is trying to build a retirement fund when his portfolio shows him running with the cats and dogs."
