Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, April 10, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Protests mount over PEPEETE, Tahiti (AP) Preparations are continuing for more nuclear tests this year, and so are the protels. If these don't stop, France seems likely to react for the first time by cracking down on foreigners' access to Tahiti. Informed guesswork says France will set off several low- strength test devices between mid-May and late July at the usual site of Mururoa, a remote atoll 800 miles below here. The pro-government daily Les Nouvelles has reported that all personnel and equipment are in place. Officials make no comment. Pacific island nations as well as Chile and Peru have asked France to stop the yearly series which started in July, 19G6. New Zealand yachts plan to enter the danger zone trying to force a halt and some leaders are drafting tough protests. It is likely the testing will at least be done underground within the next few years, but no one will say for sure. One French colonel indirectly con- firmed that work was being done on underground sites but added: "I cannot say is top secret." There are no apparent signs France plans to abandon ths project. Instead, well-informed sources say officials are pre- pared to fight back. These sources report that authorities have a plan to yank back Ta- 100 Copies plus fox Instant Print Copy Hit 726? Ave. S. Leihbridge hiti's traditional welcome mat on grounds that France's secur- ity makes it necessary to keep a watch on foreign visitors. One reason is that some pro- test yachts stop in Tahiti for plies. The aim of the tests is to have air currents carry radi- ation so high it is dispersed in such a wav that it does not con- taminate the amcsphere. Australian and New Zealand scientists have said traces of radiation are detectable but that there is no immeditae dan- ger from the French tests. Still, one told a reporter here, any amount of radiation is too much. It appears unlikely the pro- tests will stop. Nor it seems, will the testing. CN workers bo-ok off EDMONTON (GP) At least 55 workers at the Cana- dian National Railways express department booked off sick Monday in an attempt to speed up contract negotiations. The workers, who are among about 250 members of the Rail- way. Transport and General Workers Union, include drivers, warehouse workers and office staff. P J Askin. president of Lo- cal 99 of the Canadian Brother- hood, said 62 workers are in- volved. A CN spokesman, how- ever, placed the number at 55. trying to put soms pressure on the said Mr. Askin "They've oeen drag- ging their feet on contract ne- gotiations Ke said the union's contract with ths railway expired Jan. 1 and contract regotiations start- ed in November, 1972.

PHONE 328-5541 Western Roundup Two-heade fails to CLYDE (CP) A two-head- ed calf, which some experts said was as rare as Siamese twins, died on the weekend de- spite its owner's efforts to keep it alive. The calf, born Wednesday af- ternoon, had surprised veterin- arians by surviving as long as it did. Bill Dzivinski, who oper- ates a farm near this commu- niy 40 miles north of Edmon- ton, was bottlefeeding the calf warm milk through both its mouths every three hours to keep it alve. A male, the calf weighed be- hveen 60 and 70 pounds, about normal for its age. Its two heads from a single r.eck and it had two complete noses and mouths, four eyes, but only two ears Dr R C. Von Bortstel. head of the University of Alberta genetics department, has said the probability of such a birth is about the same as Siamese twins, which occur in humans about once in every to 90.000 births Dr. Sara Zalik, professor cf zoology at the University of Al- berta, said she had never heard of a two-headed calf being born alive. Dr. George Klavano of the prcv.ncial veterinary labora- tory said that usually such ete- formed calves have other phys- ical defects which cause death either at biitii or shortly after. s RAILWAY VANDALISM EDMONTON (CP) North- ern Alberta Railway is bracing for its usual spring counter- attack against vandalism, says K. R. Perry, the railway's gen- eral manager. There is aa upsurge in van- dalism each spring, Perry said, with trains stoned and shot at and rocks, bridge tim- bers and other objects placed on rails. Mr. Perry said most of the vandalism is petty and juvenile but there is a distinct problem with mischief obviously caused by adults. The problem was serious enough in northern Alberta to warrant strong precautions to protect crews ar.d property. FALLS TO DEATH MOOSE JAW (CP) James Robert Tulloch. 13. of Moose Jaw. died after a fall from the Rcbin Hoed grain elevator here.

Air ambulance service studied Values clash stirs Hutterite issue CALGARY (CP) Changing social values are contributing to rural Albertans' feeling against Hutterite expansion, says Arnold Platt of Calgary. Mr. Platt is chairman of a special Alberta government ad- visory cojnmitee attempting to calm feelings among rural res- idents. Many fanners and small- town residents have voiced op- position to Hutterites, especial- ly since the Alberta govern- ment decided to repeal this spring the Communal Proper- ties Act which for 25 years con- trolled the expansion of col- onies. Farmers say purchase of land by Hutterites permanent- ly removes it from circulation and small businessmen say the Hutterites deal mostly in larger centres, hurting the smaller towns. VULCAN HOT SPOT The current "hot spot" in the Hutterite controversy is near Vulcan, where the chair.ber_of commerce has led a campaign to stop any colony growth. "The real root 'of the trouble is a clash of value systems. The rural people, like those at Vul- can, are partcularly sus- ceptible to this sort of thing. "It's particularly difficult to- day, these people are even up- set with changing values of the people in larger cities such as Calgary. They have no choice in the change. "That, coupled with a general fear of changes taking place in agriculture itself, just com- pounds their fear of Hutterite colonies. "I have every sympathy for when they feel they can't take any more change." Mr. Platt, a farmer, member of the Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame and former executive secretary of the United Fann- ers of Alberta, said in an inter- view that projecting the rate of Hutterite growth 5s difficult. But after establishment of three of four new colonies this year and next, only a handful would be started in the follow- ing 10 to 15 years. "For one thing, I don't think they have either the need or the resources to expand as quickly as some people say they will." Hutterites have also taken a different altitude to land ac- quisition than other farmers "The Hutterites buy land when they have to and they don't pay a d o 11 a r more than they have to at that time. Mr. Platt said some evidence. by new Hutterite colonies, he suggests the population of ru- ral communities in Alberta wiJl cease to decline The towns are not Jlneatencd just aren't enough Hutterites moie than 98 per cent of Alberta's farmland is owned by other people."
