They were among 40 persons at the Waterton Park Chamber of Commerce meeting. No one saw Mr. Sulatycky at that meeting, despite his confirma- tion he would be there. There was a lajger meeting, apparently, in the Crowsnest Pass. Mr. Sulatycky phoned Wednesday, after it was too late to cancel the meeting, that he would not be in Waterton until tonight. Another chamber meeting is scheduled for the Lions' Hall at T h e meeting did discuss many problems and motions were pssf.'J requesting that several studies and actions be taken by Mr. Sulatycky. Mr. Sulatycky is to be asked to clarify ihe lease situation in Waterton. Waterton leaseholders won a Supreme Court action against the federal government regard- ing government plans to estab- lish a Crown corporation to control park leases. The lease- holders' lawyer is attempting to make the federal govern- ment responsible for costs of the court action said to be about. but the gov- ernment was reported to be considering the court's decision before making any move on costs. The meeting was told that the recent motorcade from Fernie to Waterton through the Kishenina Akamina route was hampered somewhat by "un- scrupulous" persons who dis- mantled a forestry fire road bridge and blocked the road in several places. The blockades were not there the day before the motorcade. The motorcade was met by a placard-carrying man, and his two small children, who was protesting the use of "wheels" in the semi-wilderness area. The man told the meeting Wed- nesday night that while he was a member of the Alberta Wild- erness Association he was not representing that organization when he picketed the motor- cade. The AWA had said it would not interfere with the motor- cade. Asked why the Waterton chamber was supporting estab- lishment of a park in B.C., ad- jacent to Waterton, chamber president Emanuel Cohen said it was to enlarge the area of the park, to help take pressure off Waterton, to provide pro- tection for wildlife and to pro- vide some controls for the bene- fit of Waterton, such as fire protection. The meeting was told that fish in the area of the pro- posed park are being dyna- mited, that two dead moose were found shot near an aban- doned well after man had put out a salt lick for them and that the number of animals hi die district was fast dwindling. The Regional District of East Kootenay, at the request of the Fernie Chamber of Commerce, has included the area as a park in its plans. Asked about the purpose of a road in the wilderness area, Mr. Cohen said it would be to get from one side of the park to the other. The first thing to Nude Escapade Brings Jail Term Unlawful entry into a dwell- ing house with intent to commit an indictable offence cost a Duck Lake, Sasfc., man 26 months in the Prince Albert Penitentiary. Marcel Hed Wing pleaded guilty to the charge when he appeared in magistrate's court in Lethbridge Wednesday. The court was told Red Wing broke into a home in Leth- bridge, stripped off his cloth- ing and climbed into bed with a nude woman who was sleep- ing. When the woman's husband appeared Red Wing jumped through a closed window leav- ing his clothing behind.

The woman's husband and a neighbor chased Red Whig down the street, apprehended him and called the police. Red Wing has an extensive record of breaking and enter- ing. Three Cars In Collision A three car pile up at 13th St. and 1st Ave. S. Wednesday resulted in damage. Drivers of the cars involved were Bernardus H. Koop of 410 12th St. A S., Olive M. Gilchrist of 1104 llth St. N. and Henry G. Schaufele of 1833 5th Ave. A N. do is to get the area establish- ed as a park and to get con- trols and protection for the ani- mals and historic points of in- terest which are still evident. "We're not worried about a road at this point; it will come later and we will have no con- trol of where it is or when it's Mr. Cohen said. An AWA spokesman said he thought the idea of a park in B.C. would be okay but that B.C. was not known as a de- veloper of great parks. The proposed park scheme is to be taken up with Mr. Sulatycky to- night. He is also to be asked to do what he can to promote funds for immediate development of more trailer parking space in Waterton. Park Superintendent Tom Ross said the department is reviewing how much _ more space can be provided m the immediate future to ease the present over crowding. Even the overflow areas are over- crowded. All national parks are experiencing the same problem, he said. The austerity program is the big problem. There just isn't enough money to keep up with the demand for space. The taking of fresh water shrimp from Waterton by U.S. states has raised fears that there will be a detrimental ef- fect on fish life in the lake. Fishing this year has lecn gen- erally lousy in Waterton Lake. Mr. Ross told the meeting that while Canada has given the State of Utah permission to remove the rresh water shrimp this year, a .study will be con- ducted during the removal and if it is determined the removal is having or will have a detri- mental effect on lake fish, the permit can be revoked im- mediately. "Why can't they ...take the shrimp out of the Yankee end of the one spectator ask- ed He was informed Glacier Park has a policy which pro- hibits the removal of anything from the park. Mr. Sulatycky is to be asked to investigate the temporary removal of the RCMP detach- ment at Waterton and to take steps to provide that Waterton have a resident RCMP for 12 months of the year. Vandalism and break-ins are common dur- ing the winter. He will also be asked to look into the inadequate boat dock- ing facilities and the unfunc- tioning system "which requires a person to wait four years for a berth when some space is occupied by persons who don't even have boats." Mr. Sulatycky. is to be asked for an immediate study on the possibility of retaining the Wa- terton Park fish ponds which are due to be closed next year; to attempt to have the Chief Mountain customs office re- main open from May 1 to Sept. 30 instead of closing Sept. 15; and to provide increased facili- ties necessary due to increased park usage to reduce sewage pollution.

One of the eight NORAD re- gions .in the continental detec- tion system is located 180 miles south o' Lethbridge at Malm- strom Air Force Base, Great Falls, Montana. The region 24th covers 1.5 million square miles, including Montana, Alberta, North Dakota, South Dakota, Manitoba, and parts of Wyoming and Idaho. The region has NORAD's ba- sic mission: to detect, identify, intercept, and destroy if neces- sary, all airborne vehicles en- tering the region's air space. A vast network of radar in- stallations and satellite track- ing cameras provides for the detection of aircraft. Identifica- tion basically is made through checks with flight plans filed with government transport de- partments of Canada and the United States. If suitable identification can- not be made this way, super- sonic fighter planes are dis- patched to make a visual iden- tification. The fighter planes are armed in case of enemy aggression. There are five groups of 18 fighters in the 24th region. The 90 planes include the m.p.h.- F-106 Delta Darts and the F-101 Voodoos. NORAD is a defensive opera- tion. Any attack or counter- attack by the United States would be triggered through SAC, Strategic Air Command, with headquarters in Ohio. Baker-Nunn -cameras, some- times called Space Brownies, provide a satellite tracking sys- tem for NORAD. One of these is located at Cold Lake, Alber- ta. It can photograph light from an object the size of a basket- ball from a distance of miles. In addition to possible at- tacks by manned bombers, NORAD is alert to detect Inter- Continental Ballistic Missiles. In recent weeks, the U.S. gov- ernment approved funds to set up Anti-Ballistic Missile sites- one of them to be just across the Alberta-Montana border at Conrad, Montana. The ABM site will have 000 m.p.h. missiles with a range- of miles to be de- j ployed to intercept and destroy (enemy missiles launched ag- gressively on North America. Russia has now built an ICBM fleet of some mis- siles, 100 more than the U.S. Russia has also the largest submarine fleet in the world, with submarine launched mis- siles. Russia could launch a devastating missile attack on North America from land or water. At present there is no good defense against an enemy mis- sile attack. This is the purpose of the recently-approved ABM sites. Red China is said to be build- ing rapidly its arsenal of mis- siles but is not considered in NORAD schemes as an im- mediate threat of nuclear at- tack by missiles. Another method Russia is ap- parently developing for carry- ing nuclear warheads around the world for attack on any country are Fractional Orbit Satellites, FOBS. FOBS are not considered a threat for two reasons inac- curacy of hitting target when de-orbited, and small payload of warhead possible to be car- ried into orbit. The 24th NORAD region at Great Falls, like all NORAD operations, is in joint command of U.S.-Canadian generalship. If the region is located in the Gooder Residence Gets Loan U.S., a U.S., two-star general, such as Maj.-Gen. Richard S. Abbey at Malmstrom, is in command. The deputy com- mander is a one-star Canadian general. At Malmstrom, it is Brig.-Gen. William S. Carton. If ;he region has its headquarters in Canada, the leadership is reversed, with a Canadian in command. Malmstrom has about armed forces personnel, in- cluding U.S. Air Force, Cana- dian Armed Forces and U.S. Army. NORAD headquarters is at Colorado Springs, Colorado. Control centre is deep inside Cheyenne Mountain, protected from a direct nuclear attack by some feet of granite above and around the 4.5-acre hollow- ed-out mountain area which houses the sophisticated equip- ment and staff. About 750 per- sons work in the mountain complex at one time. It can in times of emergency house its full staff of for a month without contact with the out- side. A federal loan for a new residence at the Dorothy Gocder School in Lethbridge was announced in Ottawa to- day.
