Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Auguit 22, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Gas Rate Hearing ii r n-iMrFiFi TV WANTED THI CALGARY (CP) Tim Al- berta Public Utilities Board lias scheduled a hearing to be- gin Sept. 22 into an application by Canadian Western Natural Gas Co. Ltd. to increase rates. The increase would affect 31 southern Alberta communi- ties, including Calgary and Lethbridge, and raise the aver- age homeowners bill by to annually. At an initial hearing Friday, the board set aside eight days to hear the application. Calgary Mayor Rod Sykes said last week he would oppose the application and at Friday's hearing representatives from other southern Alberta com- munities indicated they would also object. Canadian Western cited high- er costs for natural gas and in creased operating expenses as reasons for higher rates. If board approval is granted the increase would become ef fective Feb. 1, 1971.

The chemicals, called "wa- ter-degradable also be used as a pharmaceuti- al aid or in the packaging in- ustry, the researchers said. M L Beasley and B. L. Col- both of Austin Science As- ociates Inc., told of the devel- pment in a report to the tech- ical journal Science. Polymers are compounds cre- ted by the union of too or nore similar molecules. The ew compound has the same lements as the original but possesses a higher molecular reight and has different physi- cal properties. The new polymers differ from hose already discovered in that hey break dawn in the presence of moisture. STICKS TO PLANTS Tha when com- bined with conventional herbi- cides, produce a sticky resin which can be applied to plants. The addition of moisture causes the polymer to break down, releasing the herbicide. The researchers said conven tional weed and insect killers pollute water supplies becausi rain and irrigation wate washes away much of the chem ical. Farmers thus must use 1 times as much pesticide a would be normally needed, the) said. Tests of a polymerized on -grazing lands in Kansa "showed exceptional control" o weeds at application rates o one pound an acre. "No evidence for migration o herbicide was the re- searchers said. MIGHT AID DOCTORS Because the new chemica break down slowly in the pre ence of moisture, they conceive bly could be used, with med tines that need to be slowly re- leased within tlie body. They also could be used in conjunction with conventional packaging materials, the re- searchers said. The two scientists said "This wide class of water-degradable polymers offers great promise for the controlled release of her- bicides, insecticides fungi- des, rodenticides, defolian nd Pharmaceuticals." But they warned that "b i g n" polymeric formation ould have to be found befo ley could be used with met ines.
