314 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Thursday, August 13, 1970 Mercury Levels In Birds j Tolerance Level EDMONTON (CP) Mer- cury levels in Alberta game birds this fall will be below the tolerance level set by the fed- eral food and drug directorate, Dr. S. E. Smith, provincial di- rector of fish and wildlife, said here. Dr. Smith said testing of birds is continuing but results WELFARE RECIPIENT ON CROSS Fernand Goyette, 51-year-old Montreal welfare recipient responsible for 15 dependants, carries a wooden cross Monday to the head- quarters of an organization for the poor. Mr. Goyette and five other persons have been taking turns hang- ing on the cross each afternoon to protest Montreal wel- .fare payments. Mr. Goyette said he received a wel- fare cheque recently, his first welfare payment since the end of April. of spring and early summer tests "look encouraging." A de- cision on whether pheasant and Hungarian partridge hunting will be allowed likely would be made next month. "Only about 15 per cent of the birds tested earlier were near last year's marginal Dr. Smith said in an in- terview. CANCELLED SEASON Alberta cancelled the 1909 pheasant and Hungarian par- tridge season after studies showed that some of the birds contained as much as .45 parts per million of mercury residue. The tolerance level set by the directorate then was .1 parts per million but in June it was raised to .5, the same as allow- ed for fish. Dr. Smith said testing this year has been more intense than in 1969. The last phase of the testing program will be complete by the end of this month, he said, and after the fis1-. and wildlife department submits i t s recommendations, the cabinet will decide on hunt- ing. Canadian Wildlife Service studies have shown the birds get the mercury by eating seed coated with mercury com- pounds to resist insects and fungus. Last year the World Health 0 r g a n i z ation recommended that food containing more than .05 parts per million of mer- cury not be eaten. Husky Company Sales Higher, Earnings Lower CODY, Wyo. (AP) The Husky Oil Co. reported today an increase in sales, but a decline in earnings for the six months ended June 30. Revenues rose 12 per cent to million from the mil- lion reported for the first six months of 1969, it said. Net income, however, dropped to million or 14 cents a share from the million or 26 cents a share reported for the first six months of last year. Squat, Snub-Nosed Sub To Patrol Offshore Waters OTTAWA (CP) A squat, snub-nosed underwater vessel now nearing completion is ex- pected to enhance Canada's capability to exercise sover- eignty in its offshore waters. The vessel is the SDL-1 being built by International Hydro- dynamics Ltd. of Vancouver and scheduled to be delivered to the armed forces some time this fall. The letters stand for submersible diver lockout. The craft will be able to operate to a depth of enough to reach the sea bottom anywhere on Can- ada's continental shelf except for a few spots. The vessel will have a lockout compartment with room for three divers who will be able to operate out from the submersi- ble at depths to feet. Lt.-Cmdr. Rod Smith, sub- mersible project manager at defence headquarters, notes that one aspect of sovereignty is the ability to occupy physically and "do work on a given area of land or water. "This does provide some cap- ability of exercising sovereignty from that point of he says. HOLDS WIDE INTEREST Other government depart- ments are interested in the ves-, sel, and an interdepartmental; committee on sumersibles has' been established, composed of representatives of the defence, fisheries, transport, resources and trade departments. Cmrir. N. D. Brodeur, in charge of maritime projects definition, says the STJL-1 is in- tended primarily as a "work though it lias obvious military inspection value. "If you conceive of any military task involving search and pinpointing objects over the continental shelf, this will be the tool for doing il." "We will have the capability to go where we've never gone before to look, to search, to find." A predecessor of the SDL-i, Pi.sces III. lias operated in the Arctic and Ilic new vessel will be able to do the same. "It's just a question of getting it there." 'iTie submersible is air-trans- j porlafale, and operates from a tender barge that puts it into and lakes it out of the water with cranes, It has a two-man crew, apart from divers, and can stay submerged for up to 10 hours. Work tasks for which the ves- sel is suited include recovery of marine hardware from the ocean floor, the location of sub- marines in distress, inspection of underwater cables, and the repair of underwater naval ranges. The SDL-l's exact role has not yet been assigned. Products Placed Under Controls OTTAWA (CP) More dairy products and animal feeds con- taining more than 40 per cent non-fat milk solids will be placed under import control Fri- day, Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pepin announced today. Along with the animal feeds the additions to the List of prod- ucts controlled under the Export and Import Permits Act are cheeses of'all types, dry whole milk and evaporated and con- denseu milks. Guide List For Hospital Construction EDMONTON (CP) A spokesman for Health Minister James Henderson said Wednes- day the Alberta government is drawing up a comprehensive list of minimum specifications for hospitals that will he a guide to government support for construction. Costs resulting from work exceeding the minimum will have to he paid by the local jurisdiction in which a hospital is built. The specifications are being drafted by the public works department and arc "fairly" close to completion, the spokes- man said, 'nicy will apply to all institutions under health de- partment jurisdiction. Financial support now is judged on an individual, in- formal basis. Other dairy products already butterfat in any form, chcddar and colby cheese, cheese for processing, dry buttermilk, toy casein and caseinates, dry skimmed milk and dry whey. Mr. Pepin said some dairy products not under import con- tr'ol were entering Canada and being offered at prices well below support levels for Cana- dian products. "Low-priced imports have been displacing Canadian dairy products to ths extent that they were causing serious disruption to the Canadian dairy stabiliza- tion the minister said. He said the government does not intend to cut back on im- ports of natural cheese, other than cheddar and colby, for di- rect consumption, or traditional imports of processed cheese.
