Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday," December 3, 1971 - the irHBWDSB hbraid - 7 Noise is health hazard only industry can prevent EDMONTON (CP) - Unless something is done, about one of every 10 working Albertans could end their working years with some kind of hearuig impairment, Dr. C. R. May, director of industrial health services for Alberta, said Thursday. Excessive industrial noise exposure is the cause, he said. It was a major health hazard and industry was not doing as much as it can to overcome the problem. However, he believes regulations passed this year by the government mean industry now will have to take its responsi- bility in this area seriously. Dr. May was a main speaker at a workmen's compensation board seminar in industrial noise. More than 100 delegates from all types of industry attended. "The new regulations put the responsibility for dealing with the hazard of noise on the industry itself," Dr. May said in an interview at tlie seminar. "They cause the hazard so they must solve the problem." Research has shown that exposure to extremely high levels of noise or constant exposure to certain lower levels can cause defanite hearing loss, he said.

N. A pamphlet put out by his department says it has been "conservatively estimated" that 60,000 Albertans suffer some degree of hearing impairment caused by mdustrial noise. "When the. degree of deafness reaches a level at which the man is occupationally handicapped, then the disability becomes compensable and the matter is dealt with by the Workmen's (Compensation Board," he said. He estimates mat, If nothing is done by industiy, this could result in claims of about $136 million during the next 45 years -or about $3 milLion a year. The new Alberta regulations reqmre the employer to take appropriate measures to suppress the noise if possible, or to isolate the worker, from tlie noise or to supply protection equipment. Dr. May believes these regulations, which be said are stronger than similar United States legislation, will force industry into accepting its responsibilities. Any industry that did not comply could be closed down or fined, he said. However, his department usually prefers to work on "a persuasion basis," he said. It's more important to see that the regulatio i are met. Tlie new regulations use a noise scale that can be measured with simpler and much less expensive equipment than was used previously. Dr. May said this means that even "small, five-man operations" can carry out the necessary testing;. 1 i i i i 4 4 WEEKEND ENTERTAINMENT Appearing Nightly in the Club up to and including Saturday, Dec. 4 ^ 'TONY WHITE' 4 Members and Invited Guests! ^ SOUTHERN ALBERTA THEATRES CARDSTON - Mayfair Theatre "LAURENCE OF ARABIA" - In color.

In 1924, the Los Angeles Gas and Electric Co. erected a 224-foot high holding tank behind the now-gone United Artists studio. Miss Pickford, an oivner as well as star of United Artists, was outraged because the tank marred a studio scene that was supposed to be a French provincial street. The Toronto-bom actress demanded that the utility company remove the tank, but it refused. Now, the utility company's successor, Southern California Gas Co., has dismantled the tower. The company says it took down the tank because underground facilities can now store the gas. Kiss of death TURIN, Italy (AP) - A 15-year-old girl factory worker died today in what police said was a cyanide pill kiss of death with her married lover. Antonio Andreucci, 27, a foreman in the factory, was cliarged wth murder. He was in serious condition in hospital from cyanide poisoning. Police quoted him as saying he put the cyanide pill in his mouth and passed it to the girl, Maria Tummolo, in a double suicide kiss because "ours was a love without a future." EDMONTON (CP) - Hope Mission, a source of physical and spiritual help for the "down and out" in the city for more than 40 years, is in trouble. The Mission (at 9904 106th Ave.) has an outstanding mortgage of $35,000 due Dec. 31 and has only $6,000 in its mortgage fund. "But I'm confident we'll do it," Howard Hunt, Mission superintendent, said. "People are sitting up and taking notice of us lately." "The only guaranteed uicome we receive every month is $120 we get from a house we rent out," Mr. Hunt said in an mter-view. "The rest is donated." The purpose of tlie mission, he said, is to provide for the physical needs of the poor as well as their .spiritual needs. "And I think these people are more open to hearing of God's salvstion than the average church-goer." People attending regular churches were more sophisticated and established in their worship. They didn't have to worry about their physical needs so it was hard for them to fully appreciate what God should mean to them. "I don't deny that passibly 90 per cent of the people who come here are liere for the free food and clothing. But does this mean we sliouldn't try? I feel the results aren't up to us- they're up to (Jod." Mr. Hunt said the mission pi'ovides a full meal every Sunday for about 90 children. "Many children come to Hope Mission hungry and cold. Some come barefoot and without coat or jacket and others wth-out food all day." The mission recently began classes for women. About 25 women meet every Tuesday afternoon for Bible study, a ""friendly chat, a cup of tea and some goodies." Used clothing was also available. More than three tons of food and clothing, donated by businessmen and private individuals, is distributed by the mission every month. A gospel service followed by lunch is carried on each night except Saturday for 125 "desolate" men. Mr. Hunt said the services Mr. Hunt said the mission I to get these men away from has only two workers on salary. He receives $300 a month plus free housing and John Mc-Ewan, superintendent of men and family counsellor, is paid $200 a month. "After we get the mortgage paid off my next priority is a rehabilitation centre for ihe men. I feel we only have half a program going now. We need this area of the citj' instead of throwing them back into it again."
