Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THF LETHBRIDGE HERALD Salurdoy, August 25, 1971 if You Ask Me.. By JIM WILSON elections became truly demo- It's time Canadian cratic The diungc would lie easy, as easy as placing just one more line on all federal, municipal current ballots. I'm sure everyone lias had the disheartening ex- perience of not knowing who to vote for simply be- cause all the candidates in your constituency weren't (at least in your view) reaily worth voting for. Under such circumstances it's a mockery of demo- cracy to vote for what amounts to the least-objec- tionable candidate. Unless, of course, one puts a dis- tant political parly before the man who is really and direclly going to represent (or not represent) you All J want is a simple little line which reads "Reject all candidates After all, to have the choice of JUST those who have managed to convince their parties to support them, is really no choice at all. It gives no opportunity to register your non-confidence. If a majority of the people voted that they didn't want ANY of the candidates put to them to be their representatives, then it would be obvious the constitu- ency's population had no confidence in the parties' choices. A new election (actually by-election) would then be required, at which the unsuccessful candidates would still be eligible it's their democratic right to run again but for which the political parties would almost certainly propose new people I wonder if the normally-dismal voter turnout would improve ito not vote is also to reject all candi- dates'! if the rejection line were available for today's non-voters to vote in? Augur buses return to city The first of two Lethbridge Augur buses returned Aug. 19 from a cross Canada tour that took them as far as Rivierp Du Loup, Quebec, 200 miles east of Quebec City. The bus left Lefhbndge July; 20 with 30 high school, college j end university students and tra- veiled to such places as Moose Jaw, Winnipeg, Thunder Bay, Sault Ste.

Don Grant, counsellor for the tour said when some facilities were less comfortable, the "spirit of the trip" prevailed and the accommodations were welcomed. The group was able to take advantage of such free attrac- tions as the Citadel and Plains of Abraham in Quebec City and the changing of the guard In Ottawa, but were somewhat disappointed with the commer- cial i z a t i o n in Montreal, Mr. Grant said. Each region along the trip had local tours organized for the group showing them points of interest. Mr. Grant said the best fea- ture of the trip was that the students learned how to get along with people and organize a tnp effectively 9th Street to open by Oct. 1 Lethbridge drivers are to have a wider and more efficient 9th St. between 2nd and 6th Ave- nues by Oct. 1.

World's second transplant of cow embryos planned By I1IC SWIIIAIIT -Slaff Writer CAHOSTON With three healthy Hereford cows preg- nant wilh pure bred Sim- mental embryo, United SLm- menlal Ltd. of Cardslon and Livestock Breeders Internation- al Inc. of Oklahoma will per- form the world's second com- mercial embryo transplant op- eration here next week The first such operation, which is the transfer of an em- bryo from one cow lo another surgically, was completed last Sunday. The first live calf lo be born with the process grounded the first of August at Marielta, Oklahoma. The pailicipat i n B companies have nnw moved from the experimental stage to commercial [reduction. The process itself involve.1; the donnr and recipient ani- mals, in special equipment in a single room. The donor animal, in this case a pure bred Simmcntal cow, is given fertility drugs in a dose which will produce an average of 12 eggs. At the appropriate time Ihe donor is given an anaeslhic and surgery is performed jusl in front of the uddei' to remove Ihe fertilized eggs. Once removed, the egg mass is separated into indivi dual eggs in a special germ free, temperature controlled exam- ination unit. The recipient cow, standing in a squeeze gate, is frozen in the region just ahead of the hip bone on the side of the re- ceiving uterus, and an eight- inch incision is made. Once inserted in the uterus, the process is continued until all the fertilized eggs or all the recipient cows are completed. Ken Holland, part owner of T. K. L. Ranches which com- bined with Thunderbar Ranches of Barrhead to form United Simmental Ltd., said the Here- ford cows and the Simmental donor are in goou health. He said all the animals which have been experimented on are still alive and the conception rate with the process is about 95 per cent. Dr. Duane C. Kraemer of San Antonio, Texas, who performs the surgery1 wilh the assistance of James C. Dula of nubotton, Oklahoma, are the owners of Live stock Breeders Interna- tional. The know how is pro- vided by the American inter- ests, and the facilities and ani- mals arc provided by United. Mr. Holland said the main idea of the process is to pro- vide selected improvement of the cattle industry through the propagation of superior types of animals in both the beef and dairy industry. "There has not been any- thing before which would per- mit a genetically superior cow to produce more than 10 calves in a lifetime or a superior bull to produce more than 30 or 40 calves per year for about six he said.
