But the federal' government wants to get together with the provinces and work out common ground on the sub- ject so Canada can sign a new 77-country treaty on the protection of threatened species. Map shows areas of the country where some of the animals are endangered. Famed riverboats bow to the times Canadian shoe industry hurt by foreign imports CALGARY (CP) The high demand for foreign shoes and their low cost of production are hurting the Canadian shoe in- dustry, says vice president George Hanna of the Shoe Man- i ufacturers' Association of Can- j ada. The number of imported shoes has increased rapidly with 54 per cent of the shoes sold in Canada last year made elsewhere. Five years ago, only 30 per cent were imported. "There is a certain mysticism about mid-European designs." Mr. Hanna, of Grande Mere, Que., said that at one time Ital- ian and Spanish designs were superior but Canadian shoes now are as stylish and well- made. '.'Canadian manufacturers now are doing their homeowrk. and don't have to take a back seat from the point of view of style. "We are as technically ad- vanced, as efficient, as any- body in the world. "It boils down to price. Im- porters can sell because they're lower priced." Some Canadian manufactur- ers are taking Enropean de- signs and having them repro- duced 5n low-wage countries, he said in an interview here. By -JOE WILL FORT McMUKRAY, Alta. (CP) Riverboats on the Athabasca River during the summer are going much the same way as the dogsled in the winter. They continue, but the past holds more esteem than trie future holds promise. For Captain WiJJiam (Billy) Bird, the boat and the dogsled have been an integral part of his life. In the summer he com- mands a tug and until he gave up has trapline a few years ago he used a sled with four dogs in winter. He followed his father, "an old river rat onto the water and as a youngster got a job as "bull cook you peel potatoes and wash dishes for the cook.'' The boat was a wood-burn- ing stern-wheeler that pushed barges and carried passen- gers and cargo into the North on their way to the Arctic Ocean. But no longer do the boats out of Fort McMurray carry materials for the Arctic; they mostly supply the mine at Uranium City. Sask., on the north shore of Lake Atha- basca. "Before they got the rail- road and the road into Hay River, everything for the Arc- tic went through McMurray here that cut us off, we lost that North, all of that." The river, which has been a highway into the Arctic since explorers, fur traders and surveyors first used it in the late 1700s, is navigable but not perfect. PORTAGE CUT OUT The railway to Hay River cuts out the one portage that lies between Fort McMurray and the ocean: it is a 16-mile overland haul near the Alber- ta-Northwest Territories bor- der. When the railway first ar- rived at Fort McMurray. 225 miiles northeast of Edmonton, the town labelled itself the place where "steel meets keel" and it thrived as a trans-shipping centre to the North. The stern-wheelers that used to ply the Athabasca each shipping season with loads of up to 800 tens have been replaced with steel- hulled tugs that can push barges with up to tons down the river. The barges are mostly bulk tankers' and they "run the clock around" from mid-May to mid-October to get the job done. A round-trip takes a week 2nd seldom is the stop at each end more than a few hours. With the steni-wheelers, the stops might be two or three days to load cargo onto the boat as well as the barges. And along the route they would stop to pick up stock- piled wood and the rsecaskmal trapper needing a ride. ESCAPED BURNING TUG Mr. Bird recalls that once he was piloting a diesel-pow- ered wooden tug when it burned to the waterlne. "I was at the wheel when the engineer began refuelling. The tanks were up front. A deckhand came along lighting the kerosene running lights and the fumes ignited." The tanks exploded. The deckhand went overboard and was drowned, but the engi- neer and other crew scram- bled to safety. Mr. Bird climbed to the top of the and leaped over the flames to the barges up front. The last stern-wheeler on the river retired in the mid- 1940s When the Hudson's Bay Co. turned over its shipping operation to Northern Trans- portation Co. Ltd. When Fort McMurray was the jumping-off point for the North "times .were busy in the summer but in the winter there was nothing, just trap- ping and hunting." II was to trapping, which a man could make more than in a good winter or than in a bad one, that Mr. Bird turned. "If there's a lot of rabbtts In the country in the winter, there's a lot of fur. If tiie rab- bits died off or moved off, fur went with them." See the revolutionary make-up glasses available in your prescription Doctor's pretcrifttiom Sungtanec Magnifiers OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION CO.
