Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta ..Ihur.doy, D.t.mb.t 5. 1971 THI ItTHJRIBCI HKALD 23 __ ___ _______ to in (wo moons, showed up as a pock marked and oblong world in a photograph sent hack by Mariner 9. A Jet Propulsion Mars spokesman said the picture 1'ucsdav night showed Phobos as being about 11 miles by 114 miles with a "very irregular shape and a jagged, cratered surface." Although the shape is "Basically oblong it's so irregular you can hardly apply anything to he added. The photograph was taken from miles away from Phobos, the closest look ever at a Martian moon, and "proved Mariner's cameras are quite tire spokesman said. Bible-tl EDMONTON (CP) A gov-srnment-sponsored survey or and Edmonton reports hat the image or Alberta as a Bible-thumping province which 5 closing the gap between rich jnd poor is The study, conducted by Dr. Fred Sukdeo, a research officer with the Human Resources Research Council, is based on interviews with persons in Alberta's two largest cities. it at was released in preliminary form Tuesday. "The concept of Alberta as being the 'Bible belt' of Canada appears somewhat a summary of the report says. About 13 per cent of those interviewed claimed no religious affiliation and 60 per ccnt they did not attend church at all. Dr. Sukdeo said in an interview he realizes that much of the religious fervor in Alberta is found outside urban areas. Nevertheless, he added, Calgary and Edmonton represent a substantial tne A1' berta population and much of the urban populations came to the cities from rural areas. The summary cites earlier figures prepared by the council which indicate that 25 per cent of Edmontonians and Calgar-ians live in poverty. "Worse still" is the fact that the trend during the last 10 years is for the 'haves' in metro areas of Alberta to get relatively more, while the 'have-nots' progressively less. Dr. Sukdeo's survey says that 21 per cent of all homes in Calgary and Edmonton have total annual incomes of less than It found 16 per cent earning between and Toward the top of the scale, the survey reported 10 per cent of homes with incomes between and six per cent between and and four per cent more than The study found, however, that unemployment in Edmonton and Calgary during the winter of 1970-71 was considerably lower than the provincial rate of 0.5 per cent at the time. It also said that 78 per cent of immigrants arriving in Alberta and 90 per cent of inter-provincial migrants had no difficulty finding jobs. Another finding was that "in general, a small proportion home the current populations of Calgary and Edmonton comes from rural areas." About one-third of native Al-bertans in the two cities were born there. Of those who weren't, almost half came from small towns, and only 12 per cent from rural areas." Of those surveyed, 37.3 per cent were Albertans, 23.6 per cent were inter-provincial migrants and 17.8 per cent were immigrants. Dr. Sukdeo said complicated sampling techniques were used to make sure that the persons interviewed were selected at random to be representative of the total population. The report also says that close to one-quarter of the populations of Calgary and Edmonton now live in apartments with four or more floors a greater proportion than in the 1966 census. Fifty-nine per cent of the immigrants reported some form of ethnic discrimination in Alberta. It was felt that Indians were discriminated against most, followed by Ukranians, Italians, Negroes and other minority groups. Ninety-four per cent said they were able to understand English and communicate in that language. The study is titled adjustments of immigrants and PRESIDENT Marshal A.

The Soviet press reported this today about the mission of Mars 2, the 4.6-ton capsule that swung into orbit around Mars Saturday after a six-month interplanetary trip. In announcing yesterday that Mars 2 had gone into orbit, Tass, the Soviet news agency, said it had dropped a capsule to the surface of the planet carrying a pennant with the Soviet Union's coat of arms on it. This touched off speculation among American space scientists that (he capsule might also be an instrument package to radio information back to the earth. But the more detailed reports today gave no indication of any such activity, "ars 2 joined the U.S. Mariner 9, which beat the Soviet vehicle to Mars by two weeks. Nine days behind Mars 2 is Mars 3, a satellite of equal weight which may have an entirely different mission, Western specialists said. The Russians have not said when Mars 3 would reach the planet nor what its mission is. Tass said Mars 2's elliptical orbit ranged from to H57 miles from Mars. The low point for Mariner 9 is 868 miles above the surface. "The most important assignment of satellites around Mars mil be to study the relief and structure of the planet's Tass said of Mars 2. "The photo eye will be able to discern objects only hundreds and even tens of metres in size.

The receivership was retired last June 15 when officials reached an agreement with another company for exploration and possible development Df properties held by the receiver. Officials declined, lo name he other company, but Informed sources have mentioned Consolidation CoaJ Co. of Canada. Brazeau operated a mine at Nordegg, 150 miles west of Red Jeer, for many years, but went jankrupt in 1955 and the Alber-a government became receiver and took over the affairs of the company. Nordegg was at one time a major western Canadian coal producer and the town was tome to some persons. In the 1950s a change from coal as a major source of fuel :or the railways and a fire at the mines was partially responsible for the closure, despite freed advance from the provincial government to convert to briquette production. Officials said that, over the years, sale of equipment enabled the company to pay back to the government about but the principal and accumulated interested eventually pushed the debt to more than million. N. F. William Pickard, director of the Alberta commercial branch which managed the affairs under the government, confirmed ihat Brazeau had made suitable arrangements with respect to the outstanding debt. In return, Brazeau received access to its properties, including the mine and leases on land surrounding the town-site. Consolidation Coal and several other companies have shown considerable interest in exploration b the area recently. H. H. Sormr.erville, deputy minister of mines and minerals, said no applications have been received by the director of mines to re-open the mine as proposed hi the Commons here the banning of all advertising on children's television p r o-grains for the rest of 1971.
