Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, 4, 1974 Alberta should export water to U.S., LCC president proposes By JIM GHANT Herald Staff Writer Oil lesource revenue in Alberta should be used to develop such renewable resources as water to generate provincial revenue for years to come, a Western Canada authority on water resources advocated Tuesday. Speaking to a group of Lethbridge Community College students, LCC President C. D. Stewart suggested the provincial government could generate billions of dollars each year for generations of Albertans by selling its excess to the United States. The provincial government should begin planning for the diversion of some of its rivers and construct dams to control the water tluw im- mediately so it will have a source of revenue to replace the revenue that will be lost when its non renewable resources such as oil disappear, Dr. Stewart advised. The period of planning will take years to com- plete because so many details of the diversion of rivers and construction of dams must be studied to determine their effects on the environment and the people of the province, he pointed out. Dr. Stewart, former head of construction of the South Saskatchewan River Dam, recalled it took 32 years from the time of the first proposed to completion of the Saskatchewan dam. At that rate, preparation for a project as gigantic and complicated as he is proposing lor sale of this country's water may take until the year 2100, E Stewart continued As president of the local Alberta Institute of Agrologists branch, the college president will be working with other water resource authorities this summer to update a report on water development in the province. He suggests the first area of government ac- tion must concentrate on the "water crisis" situation in Southern Alberta. The difference between the current water situation and his projected water crisis in the basin area of the Oldman River is a one-year drought, according to Dr. Stewart. The provincial government, he advises, should take immediate action to develop its plans lor the construction of the Three Rivers Dam at the bead of the Oldman River. The proposed dam would store about acre feet of water and would cost about M5 million to construct, Dr. Stewart said. An acre- foot of water would cover one acre with one foot of water. The Three Rivers Dam is needed to store water to "even" the flow of the Oldman River and to store water for a year when the water level drops far below average, Dr. Stewart stressed. He recommended other measures ol action could be taken to conserve the water available to Southern Albertans, thanks to the Oldman River. The flow of water to Saskatchewan from the Oldman River should be "cut" almost totally, he said, while suggesting Alberta's water commit- ment to Saskatchewan could be met by diverting the amount committed from the Bow H.vei. or the Red Deer River. In a 1967 agreement, Alberta agreed to con- tinue supplying Saskatchewan with a quantity of water equaling half the natural flow of the river. The agreement did not indicate the water supply must originate with the Oldman River.

Family helped by donors Lethbridge residents have been quick to respond to pleas for help for a Hardieville family who lost their home and belongings in a fire last week. Neighbors Mrs Jack Martin and her husband helped collect donations for the family, Mr and Mrs Wells Collier and their seven children In the eight days since the fire, Lethbridge residents donated everything from clothing and furniture to food and ironey "About all the Colliers need now is a place to said Mrs Martin.

LETHBRIDGE TED NEWBY KEITH ERDMANN Lie. 01C263-41 Lie. 012116-458 Study of giving A study of the psychology of charitable giving will receive the support of the Lethbridge United Way, the group's board of directors decided Tuesday. The board authorized Ex- ecutive Director Dave Wilson to co-operate with a study by University of Lethbridge psy- chology professor Gordon Russell. Prof. Russell told the board sympathy for groups seems to vary with the amount of em- pathy they generate. An air- line crash killing 50 Canadians gets about the same public sympathy as 7.000 dying Pakistanis, he said. The first half of the study will ask people to compare pairs of United Way agencies for he said. This technique, called multi- dimensional scaling, allows up to 100 dimensions to be used, he said. The questionnaire will ask a sample of 75 to 100 Lethbridge residents to make similarity comparisons of A to B for the charities. Nine possible answers range from "very similar" to "very dis- similar The second half will ask respondents to divide up a theoretical among the 15 united way agencies, said Prof Russell. He said the study may show what factors, such as involve- ment with children, affect the image of charitable organizations. People who give may see agencies in a different light than those who don't, he said. He asked the United Way, to help by dividing the answers from givers and non-givers. Confidentiality would be1 protected, since names would not have to be on the answer sheets after the sample is divided, he said.

Antifreeze burns, public warned Alberta Fire Commissioner William Mackay has issued a warning to the public about a highly combustible antifreeze available in the province. Mr. MacKay says the product has been shipped into the province in bulk because of the antifreeze shortage. Mr. MacKay says he doesn't know what brand name the an- tifreeze is carrying. He said retail outlets are buying it from wholesalers and putting their own names and labels on it. He said it is about 90 per cent alcohol. Most antifreeze sold in Alberta is marked "per- manent" and is considered safe Permanent antifreeze is made of ethylene glycol which is non flamable. The alcohol type is hazardous when im- properly used. A recent laboratory test in- dicates it has a flash point of 60 degrees and when placed near an open flame will ignite immediately, Mr. MacKay says. This antifreeze should be handled very carefully, he said. It shouldn't be stored in a basement and it shouldn't be stored in a glass jar. Mr. MacKay claims once the antifreeze is in a radiator it's safe because water dilutes it, raising the flashpoint to a safe level. However, Calgary Fire Marshall Rupert Bmnion does not agree. He claims diluting this antifreeze in water makes no difference in the flashpoint of the antifreeze A spark from a car's manifold could ignite an- tifreeze while the car is in mo- tion and if a car was involved in a collision the antifreeze could be easily ignited if there was a spark nearby, Mr. Bin- nion claims. The Calgary fire depart- ment was first alerted to the antifreeze by a Calgary retailer who was marketing it but was concerned about the safety of the product The sale of this antifreeze cannot be stopped if it's stored properly by the wholesaler and the antifreeze is labelled flamable, by the retailer, Mr. Binnion says. He says cans containing the antifreeze are required to be marked flamable but no other information such as the li- quid's flash point is required. Council leaves avenue in private road status City council concurred Mon- day with R. H.

Mr. Chambers said his application to develop tiie se- cond'stage of his mobile home park had been delayed for eight months while a plan was drawn up. When it was completed it showed 23rd Avenue as a public throughfaic, prompting his appearance before coun- cil. Suspicious meat scraps found in Lethbridge Lethbridge city police received two complaints Monday of meat suspected to contain poison being found in city residents' yards. Sam Helwig, 826 8th St N., found two pieces of fresh liver in his front yard. The meat appeared to have foreign sub- stances in it and will be sent to a provincial laboratory where it will be examined to see if it does contain poison, police say. Discovery of a bag of chicken with seed all over it in the lane driveway of George Baugh. 1822 19th Ave. S., was also reported to police. This meat will also be sent to a provincial laboratory for ex- amination Mr Baugh appeared in provincial court today on a charge of placing poison in a position that could easily be consumed by dogs. He plead- ed guilty to the charge laid Sept 14. A similar charge laid Mon- day was read to him today and he pleaded not guilty. Judge Lloyd Hudson remanded Mr. Baugh for a psychiatric examination. Judge Hudson said he was concerned about the danger of poison meat being left in a place where children could pick it up There have been several reports of dog poisonings in the city this year. Hepatitis causing economic damage Inclusion body hepatitis (IBH) is rapidly gaining economic importance in the broiler chicken industry in Southern Alberta, says a local veterinarian. John Luther, a member of the staff at the provincial Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory in Lethbridge, says the inflammation of the liver can kill 10 per cent of a chicken flock and in one case in Alberta, killed 30 per cent of the flock First recognized in the United States in 1963, the dis- ease spread to Alberta and Ontario in 1970. The first signs of the disease in a flock lasts about three to five days. In this period dead birds are found in the flock when none appear to be sick. Coaldale youth hurt An 18-year-old Coaldale man has been charged with careless driving following an accident Tuesday at 3rd Avenue and llth Street South resulting in one injury and 000 damage. Lethbridge city police allege Richard Kreft was westbound on 3rd Avenue .about 3 p.m. when he was in collision with another west- bound vehicle driven by Ralph Vath, 57, 1037 17th St. South. Mr. Vath suffered whiplash injuries but wasn't taken to hospital police said. Motel window broken Two large rocks were thrown through a window of an Ei Rancho Motor Hotel, oc- cupied by a Calgary family Tuesday, but no one was hurt. Harvie Witter told Lethbridge city police he heard a car drive away after the rocks were thrown, but said he didn't see anyone. Mr. Witter, his wife and two children were in the room at the time. There was a similar in- stance Sunday afternoon when a Lethbridge resident was awakened from a nap after a rock broke two windows in his home. Then three to five days later, sick birds can be found in the flock. These birds lag behind the rest of the flock when a person enters the building. Then another three to five day period is evident when mortality begins to decrease. Dr. Luther says various theories of the cause of death have been formulated, but the main cause appears to be virus related. Susceptibility of the birds appears to vary depending on genetic susceptibility, he says. But it is more likely suscep- tible chicks were born from eggs laid by hens which had never been exposed to the IBH virus and could impart no im- munity to the disease to the offspring. Research in the future will be directed at growth of the virus in a laboratory situation, says Dr. Luther. Once a system has been developed, then researchers should be able to tell if the dis- ease is transmitted through Former MLA honored by Socred party Jack Landeryou, former MLA for the Lethbridge con- stituency, has been awarded a lifetime membership in the Alberta Social Credit Party Mr Landeryou, 69, represented the constituency for 26 years between 1944 and 1970, when he retired. The membership was awarded at the party's annual _ convention in Edmonton on the weekend. Two other long time party supporters in the constituen- cy, Mrs. H L. Cunningham and Mrs. Fred Harvey, also hold lifetime memberships The constituency has since been split into Lethbridge East and Lethbridge West. the egg, if. transmission in flocks occurs or if the virus can survive in buildings, litter or air.
