Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, August 28, 1974 LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Dateline Alberta Legislature gets interns EDMONTON (CP) Six parliamentary interns will work in the legislative assembly this fall as part of a program to provide recent graduates with broad ex- posure to legislative and political processes. Three interns will be assign- ed to government MLAs and three to the opposition, where they will serve until switching assignments in January. Ottawa originated the prac- tice of engaging interns, usually students of political science, history and other humanities. The interns will earn a month, with 50 per cent of their salaries paid by govern- ment and 50 per cent by in- dustry. North supplies moving EDMONTON (CP) Supplies for isolated Eskimo settlements are moving again following the break-up of an ice jam that threatened to delay the shipment of northern cargo. Supplies for about per- sons in eight Arctic com- munities move by sea each summer, providing them with necessities just before freeze- up. Bruce Hunter, vice presi- dent of operations for the Northern Transportation Company Ltd. in Edmonton, says tons of supplies are moving now. Bulldozer kills worker BRUDERHEIM (CP) Barry Body, 22, of Edmonton was killed at a construction site near this community, 25 miles northeast of Edmonton, RCMP said. Police said the victim attempted to get on a moving bulldozer but slipped under it. Gas plant cleared EDMONTON (CP) Nature, not sulphur dioxide from a gas-processing plant, has caused extensive damage to trees near Rocky Mountain House, says a federal forestry scientist studying the effects of air pollution on trees. Dr. Drake Hocking of the northern forest research centre says a complainant brought in samples of trees the man thought were dying because of their proximity to the Aquitaine Company of Canada Ltd. gas processing plant, 25 miles from Rocky Mountain House in west central Alberta. PWA deal probe urged EDMONTON (CP) Nick Taylor, Alberta Liberal leader, says a full judicial in- quiry should be called into the Alberta government's recent purchase of Pacific Western Airlines. "I'm not interested in any witch-hunt exercise, but I believe it is in the best interests of all concerned to bring about a full inquiry to clear the Mr. Taylor said in a prepared statement. He said the Lougheed ad- ministration left itself "wide- open" to speculation by pay- ing almost twice the going market value for the airline.

Gov't buys airstrip HINTON (CP) The Alberta cabinet has approved the purchase of the Jasper- Hinton airstrip 12 miles west of here, Bob Dowling, con- sumer affairs minister, said Water schemes harmful WINNIPEG (CP) An Alberta scientist says rivers should be looked at as something other than sources, of energy and his scientific colleagues should speak out against regulation of northern waterways. Dr. Donald Gill, director of the Boreal Institute for Northern Studies at the University of Alberta, said man-made disturbances such as dams and diversion channels could have harmful affects on a region's climate and eventually its plant and animal life. Dr. Gill was the keynote speaker at the World Congress of Limnology, attended by about scientists from 33 countries. Limnology is the science of inland waters. Dr. Gill, who has spent 10 years studying the possible effects of water diversion schemes in the Mackenzie Delta, said the balance of plant and animal life in the area depends greatly on an an- nual spring flood. Only a small number of plant types are able to survive the harsh northern en- vironment, he said, and these provide the major food supply for waterfowl, muskrats, bears and other animals which play a vital role in the life of the region's native pop- ulation. Tuesday. The government will pay more than for the lease rights of the airstrip to Jasper-Hinton Air- port Ltd. Mr. Dowling said in an interview the department of industry and commerce will begin negotiations with the federal government, which could lead to a cost-sharing development of the airport facility. Mr. Dowling said the province would take over the operation of the airstrip for an interim period until an ade- quate airport is developed. At that time, he said, the local municipalities of Hinton and Jasper would contribute to the operational cost. Mr. Dowling said it would take at least three years for a proper facility to be operational. PRE- SPORTING GOODS ALPINE CUSTOM 30-06 DELUXE RIFLE Bolt action, hand checkered and recoil padded. Reg.

About 20 patients in the rheumatic disease unit will voluntarily submit to tests to determine if the ancient Chinese treatment improves the functioning of hands deformed by rheumatoid arthritis, says Dr. John Per- cy, unit director. Dr. Percy, who emphasized the tests are aimed at the symptoms of the disease rather than at the disease itself, said a similar study in Winnipeg found acupuncture relieved the pain but not the inflammation associated with the disease. The treatments will be per- formed by Dr. John Mclntyre, a University Hospital anesthesiologist who has studied the procedure twice in TANKER REFLOATED NEW YORK (AP) The Liberian oil tanker Aeolus, which sprang a leak and ran aground off New York Har- bor, was refloated and towed toward port Monday night by four tugboats. China, and by an unnamed Ed- monton doctor who received both medical and acupuncture training in China. The Alberta College of Physicians and Surgeons per- mits doctors who have proven to the college that they are competent in the use of acupuncture to practise it on patients. However, use of acupunc- ture is strictly controlled, with doctors able to use it only as part of an approved and supervised research project.
