Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta April 11, 1973 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD 21 Look ma, no fumes In these days of auto emission, standards and pollu- tion consciousness, here's one car that doesn't waste energy or cause air pollution. The People-Powered Ve- hicle is the brainchild of a General Motors engineer and is said to go up to 40 miles an hour on pedal-power. Somebody goofed on mpeseed OTTAWA (CP) Rapeseed fanners may have suffered crop losses last year because the agriculture department li- censed too quickly a strain of the oilseed containing amounts of erucic acid, the Commons agriculture committee was told today. B. B. Mgicovsky, director general of the department's re- search branch, said "health as- pects" forced the department "to move a little more quickly" than it normally would in li- censing a new strain of a crop. He was referring to ex- periments showing that rats fed older varieties of rapeseed, con- taining as much as 30 to 50 per cent erucic acid, developed fat deposits on their hearts. When scientists identified the acid as the apparent cause, the govern- ment launched a multi-million dollar program designed to en- courage production of low- erutic varieties. One of those, called Zephyr, matures about two weeks more slowly than other strains and farmers around Dauphin. Man., and in northern parts of Sas- katchewan, had their crops fro- zen out. Gordon Ritchie phin) said somebody "goofed" in recommending the produc- tion of Zephyr before it was proven fit Canadian climate. Seed was produced by the de- partment in California to take advantage of two growing sea- sons a year. Dr. Migicovsky said that, at the time, department people considered Zephyr suitable for production in Canada. Still, it would not have moved as quickly as it did without the emotional pressure brought on by the association of erucic acid and heart disease. C. R. Phillips, director gen- eral of the departments produc- tion and marketing branch, said in reply to questions by Alf Gleave (NDP-Saskatoom-Big- gar) that Zephyr and Span, an- other low erucic variety, have been recommended for growth in southern parts of the Prairies this year. At the same time, two more auickly maturing varieties. Torch and Midas, have been li- censed for production. Pastor 'jumped the gun' detention chief claims CALGARY (CP) A call for an investigation into hold- ing practices at the Calgary Juvenile Detention Centre was made without sufficient know- ledge of the facts, says city so- cial services director Sam Blafcely. Rev. David Cook of St. Mat- thews United Church called for the investigation in a sermon Sunday, saying a 14-year-old emotionally disturbed boy was being held in an eight-foot "hot- orange-colored dungeon." Mr. Blakely agreed the boy Soldiers on rampage EDMONTON A spokes- man for the Canadian Fortes Base in nearby Namao said 16 members of the armed forces involved in a chair breaking incident in a downtown night- club will be dealt with by a military tribunal. City police have waived jur- isdiction over the men, who were charged with unlawful as- sembly. The verdicts and punishment will not be disclosed. The spokesman said persons found guilty "wiH be disciplined in accordance with Uic gravity of the offence." The spokesman said that ac- cording to his information, only about damace was done to two chairs in the disturbance last month. has been held in isolation since April 3 but said be can come out anytime by co-operating with staff and acting respon- sibly. "Without going into confiden- tial details of our psychia- trist's report, this boy is in iso- lation for good reasons. His ac- tions compelled this confine- ment." The boy had besn "extremely violent" and after extensive treatment at a home for emo- tionally disturbed children "they gave up on him." "I'm afraid Rev. Cook jump- ed the gun on this and didn't give us a chance to answer his criticism before going to the press." Mr. Blakely said the boy. who has been made a ward of the goverrment. arrived at the Cen- tre Feb. 27 and is awaiting a opening for treatment in Ed- monton. "He should never hax-e had to stay this long but he is 10th on the list to go to Edmonton, and the centre there jurt hasn't the space to take them." Many of those at the Calgary centre were awaiting transfer to treatment institutions. Department rules out teachers EDMONTON (CP) The ed- ucation department rejects a recommendation that teachers be eligible for election to the board of trustees of the school system in which they are em- ployed, Education Minister Lou Hyndnwn says. Mr. Hyndman, in the legis- lature, tabled what he called the first of several planned reaction papers on the Worth Report on the future of educa- tion in Alberta. The report was released last summer. Mr. Hyndman said the depart- ment endorses the need for re- presentation by native people en school boards in areas where there are large concentrations of native students attending rural schools, "if representa- tives of the Indian people re- quest such representation." Swedish regime in deep trouble STOCKHOLM (AP) Facing general elections in six months, Sweden's Social Democratic government is attempting to re- verse a slide in popularity which threatens the party's 42 consecutive years of rule. Last November, a national opinion poll gave the govern- ment only 40 per cent of a sam- pling of voters and sent strate- gists into action to devise ways of attracting a larger share of the electorate. "The government sure is in a concluded an opposition newspaper the other day after it criticized the Social Demo- crats' most recent proposition to invest the national pension fund in pilivately owned busi- nesses. Lifce the pension fund pro- p o s a e r m e d "socialism through the back door" by its government's other ideas have been aimed at giving the Swedes more benefits while not increasing taxes. In return, the Social Democrats, who received 50.1 per cent of the vote in 1968, hope to get re- elected. A budget announced in January guarantees an minimum wage for all unem- ployed, requires one-half state payment of dental bills, in- creases old age pensions and al- lowances for the handicapped and guarantees persons ml'ssing work because of illness 90 per cent of their salary while sick. CREATE MORE JOBS The government also allo- cated million to create new jobs in sparsely populated areas and acted to curb criticism over high food costs by freezing the prices of meat and dairy prod- ucts. Prime Minister Olof Palme announced a drive against the rising crime rate. "You can blame the govern- ment for a lof of things, but not for said Sweden's leading mornling newspaper, Dagens Nyheter. It remains uncertain whether the Social Democrats can get a majority in the elections Sept. 16. Despite its reform pro- grams, the government still faces rising unemployment, high taxes and increasing prices. And in order to get a major- ity in the 350-seat parliament they will have to work with the Communists, who stand a chance of gaining strength be- cause of increased worker dis- satiisf action. Current polls show the leftist coalition with a 10-seat edge in parliament, but the Social Democrats alone are 13 seats short of a majority.
