Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBHIDGC I nurtday, April Z5, 1974 Goat skin drums barred OTTAWA (CP) -Goatskin drums from Haiti are being denied entry into Canada because they might carry an anthrax organism that could kill people, the health and agriculture departments announced Wednesday in a joint statement Anthrax is predominantly an animal disease but humans can acquire it by handling mferted animal skins In man, an untreated anthrax infection can be fatal in 20 per cent of cases, Dr A B Morrison of the health protection branch said in an interview Infection starts with a pain- less boil or carbuncle with a black centre which can spread to the blood stream within days. The infection usually responds quickly to antibiotics rw -g --rf, Jureat her gently. Hiram Walker's Special Old. GmtkRyeWhisky. Bad weather hits sowing of crops MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet government announced Wednesday that bad weather has seriously retarded the sowing of spring crops. The phrasing and statistics in the report indicated the country may face another agriculture crisis this year The front-page report in the central government newspaper Izvestia revealed that only 70 9 million acres of spring crops including grains, sugar, cotton, sunflowers and vegetables had been sown by April 22 This compared with 107 2 million acres by the same time last year, when the country's farmers produced a record grain crop of 222 5 million tons In 1972, bad weather and mismanagement resulted in major grain shortfalls and forced the Kremlin to spend billion to import western gram The spring wheat crop accounts for 60 to 70 per cent of annual gram production Izvestia said the poor weather had affected all major agricultural regions of the nation.

H> ndman, Gunderson clash over spending BANFF (CP) Education Minister Lou Hyndman and Harald Gunderson, president of the Alberta School Trustees Association, disagreed Wednesday over government control of spending for education Mr Hyndman told a conference on the financing of education he believes at least two thirds of Albertans and provincial MLAs favor retention of provincial controls on supplementary funding by school boards Mr Gunderson, however, said he has not received two complaints in the last year urging continued controls on school board funding Mr Hyndman said he would be prepared to include the question of funding restrictions on school boards in a public referendum on this fall's school board election ballot "I would accept the results School boards currently are required by the Alberta government to hold to a per-cent ceiling on supplementary requisitions from local taxpayers Boards can choose to ask the taxpayers for more money, at the risk of being called on to run a plebiscite on the issue Mr Hyndman told the trustees one of the reasons he favors keeping limits on school boards is because of the poor quality of the link "between trustees and the electorate An indication of this problem, the minister said, is the number of letters and telephone calls he receives about school matters strictly of local concern This meant that the public does not go first to its school board with local issues, thus indicating a problem in the trustee public link The minister also pointed to the move last December by Calgary's public school trustees to vote themselves a 50 per cent pay raise He called the action "questionable" and said this kind of move encourages the government to retain some control Mr Gunderson termed school boards the "fall guys He said the minister talks about local autonomy while favoring funding controls "I hope the minister stops trying to protect trustees from themselves In response to arguments from trustees that controls are kept on school boards while they are relaxed on municipal governments, Mr. Hyndman said he does not believe the trustee public link is as good as the alderman public link Poor weather shuts down 299 elevators WINNIPEG (CP) The Canadian Wheat Board today said a total of 299 elevator points have been closed in the prairie region because of poor weather conditions Pipeline warning served INUVIK, N.W.T. (CP) A warning that legal action would be taken to block the proposed Mackenzie Valley natural gas pipeline unless native land claims were settled first was given Wednesday The warning came from the Committee for the Original People's Entitlement, (COPE) which appeared before Mr. Justice Thomas R Berger, who is conducting an inquiry for the federal northern affairs department into the terms and conditions on a right-of-way for the proposed pipeline Philip Blake, reading a brief from COPE, said- "If the government should approve any construction before a settlement is agreed on, I think that the members of COPE will want my organization to join forces with the federation of natives north of 60 in legal action to stop the building of the pipe- line The federation consists of all native organizations in the Yukon and Northwest Territories The COPE brief echoed sub- missions made earlier to Judge Berger that a land settlement must precede any work on the proposed mile pipeline from the north slope of Alaska to the energy- hungry United States. The project will employ workers in the construction phase and create 190 permanent jobs Albert Plum representing the Inuvik and Distric Chamber of Commerce, argued that native land claims should not be considered as part of Judge Berger's terms of reference "They do not enter into the picture at Mr. Plum said He said it is important that the hearings into the project not be delayed for a year as proposed by native organizations because the Canadian route is threatened by an alternative route through Alaska and timing is of the essence Here Are the ANSWERS for your NEWS QUIZ PART 1-1 -c; 2-Golda Meir; 3-b; 4-False; 5-Jean Marchand PART II 1-e, 2-a, 3-d, 4-c, 5-b PART III: 1-c; 2-e: 3-b, 4-d; 5-a PICTURE QUIZ- Francois Mitterrand He won't claim first prize MONTREAL (CP) Georges Cote, lOth-pnze Olympic lottery winner picks up his prize here today and will not lay claim to the first prize, the general manager of the Olympic lottery said Wednesday Julien Cote said Wednesday Mr Cote was not attempting to claim first prize, as previously reported It was reported that Mr Cote was making the claim because his winning number had been announced first, and not last as indicated on the back of his ticket because the top 10 winners were announced in reverse order Mr Cote, who is from St Eustache, Que., but works in Frobisher Bay, was reported to have thought he was the top winner after watching the special television program an- nouncing the winners April 15 "He told me himself that he was unable to watch the the lottery general manager said "It was only later someone told him he should claim the million IMPORTANT AUCTION NOTICE Due to the mail strike, you may NOT receive your RITCHIE BROS.
