Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 46 THE IETHBK1DGE HERALD Wednesday, April 11, 1773 U.S. marines may get crack at Peking By JOHN Special to The Herald PEKING From the Halls of the Suburbs of Peking? It could '.veil come to that, in some future updating of the Marine Corps soag, if the Chinese approve plans to sta- tion leathernecks on guard duty outside the U.S. liaison office that is to be opened here next month. Diplomatic sources in the Chi- nese capital report that the ad- vance team already in Peking lius proposed thai six marines i be included in the Staff of about 30 that will man the mission in its initial stages. If approved, China service for the fighters against the Chinese in Korea, and more recently against China's Communist allies in be one of the more poignant of the new relationship that is bsing worked out by Washington and Peking. It is U.S. policy to station ma- rines outside U.S. diplomatic missions around the world, but there is no known precedent for the use of military men for guard duties at foreign missions in China since the Communists came to power years ago. However, about 30 of the 70 embassies in Peking have mili- tary attaches, including the missions of at least four of the U.S. NATO Can- ada, France and Italy If the marines come to Pe- king they will keep a low pro- file, changing into their uni- forms at the mission and taking care not to appear in them out- side the mission premises, the sources say. Under Chinese law, they will be forbidden to carry firearms Novel as their appearance would be for the currant gener- ation of Chinese, it would not be the first time that the marines have seen service in Peking. Between the two world wars, a small detachment was stationed at the U.S. mission here, and there was a larger marine camp at Tientsin, about 75 miles to the east. One of the marines carved himself a small niche in Chi- nese history by scratching an inscription on a stone tablet standing at the entrance to the tomb of one of the 13 Ming em- Ipercrs buried in a valley I north of the capital. The man, a sergeant, 1918. wrote: "Tired and slespy, 31 years young, hunting for jewels or the Mings, no can find." The wards are still legible today. There is no jewel hunting for the leathernecks in the closely- guErded tombs these days However, as young baehe'ors in a foie'gn community where single girls outnumber single men about three to one, they are likely to find their leisure time well filled. Nor are the bachelor girls the only ones in the foreign commu- nity who are looking forward to the arrival of tbs leathernecks. Fish in the Oldman and South Saskatchewan rivers are still contaminated with mercury, according to the Al- berta government's fish and wildlife division. The division has issued guidelines on what fisb are safe for consumption. Source of the mercury is not yet pinned down. KRAFT CHEEZ WHIZ PAULINS SODAS Assorted Flavours 3 oz. net wt. pkgs.

Because of this problem the fish and wildlife division conducted an exten- sive and intensive study on the levels of mercury in fish from both the Oldman and South Saskatchewan Rivers in 1972. Species of fish tested for mer- cury concentrations were suck- ers, burbot sturgeon, goldeye, sauger, and walleye. "The legally accepted level in Canada for mercury in edi- ble parts of fish is set at ppm by the Food and Drug Directorate. One ppm indicates one part of mercury in one million parts of fresh fish flesh, and is equilavent to one ounce of mercury in approx- imately pounds of fish. The level of ppm contains safety factor to protect in- dividuals who are heavy fish eaters or who may be unduly susceptible to mercury poison- ing. If consumption of mer- cury is- greater than excretion then accumulation of mercury will occur. The purpose of the tolerance limit is to ensure that there is no accumulation. However, no danger is likely with occasional (once per week) consumption of fish containing %-l ppm mercury, with the exception of preg- nant women. "We found that fish were contaminated with mercury throughout the South Saskat- chewan River and in the Old- man River at least as far up- stream as the confluence of of this river with the Belly River. Goldeye from the Old- man River greater in length and weight than 13.1 inches and 1.0 pounds should not be eaten since these fish would probably contain more than the permissable level of ppm mercury. In the South Saskatchewan River goldeye greater in length and weight than 126 inches and 0.9 pounds are probably not sat- isfactory for consumption. However, no danger is likely with once per week consump- tion of goldeye of greater sizes from these rivers (ex- cept for pregnant "Almost all burbot and stur- geon taken from the South Saskatchewan River would be satisfactory for consumption but no sauger (and probably walleye also) should be eaten, since even small fish of this species have mercury concen- trations in excess of ppm. Suckers from the South Sask- katchewan River (but not the Oldman River) may have high levels of mercury and are not recommended for consump- tion. "We have not been able to identify the source of mer- cury but do not believe that it originates from industrial or municipal areas (Lethbridge, Taber, Medicine Bat) in ap- preciable amounts. Our work on this problem is to con- tinue in 1973, however." The Bow Island Trap Club has scheduled the Max Stolz Memorial Trapshoot this Sun- day commencing at 10 a.m. There will be three, 50-target events which include SO from 16 yards, 50 handicap targets and a team competition, five shooters shooting SO targets each. Blair McNeely from the sponsoring club says it is not essential to come with a full team. Teams may be made up at the shoot and entrants who wish may shoot on more than one team.
