The project at Ellersley is to find out if a feeding regimen can be worked out in Canada to produce the right type of Kobe beef. Mr. Hargrove said Japan has the potential for increasing its own supply of beef but must import huge quantities because the requirements are far be- yond the country's ability to proUuce.

The course, spoasorcd by St. John Ambulance, was a pilot- mdustrial first aid of the first in Canada. Tile course was conducted by specialists including an ortho- paedic surgeon, cardiologist, anesthetist, eye specialist, neu- rosurgeon, plastic surgeon, psy- chologist and a member of the Canadian Armed Forces views of the anatomy; cardiac arrests; airway obstruction and pulmonary arrest; industrial poisons; injuries to chest, ab- domen, eye, skull, brain, head, neck and face; drugs: injuries due to heat and cold: emer- gency childbirth; cominunica- ble diseases and others. Results of the course and tests will be assessed and nn advanced industrial first aid program developed. With an ax or saw and a 50 cent permit from the Alberta Forest Service, Lethbridge res- idents arc entitled to cut their own Christmas trees in the mountain forests west of here. A ranger at the forest office at Slairmore said most resi- dents from this area head for the Castle River area 20 miles west of Pincher Creek, or the Porcupine Hills area northwest of Pincher Creek for their trees. A 50 cent permit is required for each tree taken, up to a limit of six trees per indivi- dual, the ranger said. Trees may be cut on govern- ment forest reserves or land leased from the Crown, but only within 100 feet of the centre line of the road. "You don't need a permit to cut trees on private he said, "hut you should get permission first from the prop- erty owner." While there was no exact count of the number of per- mits issued so far. they are "going fast." he said. Since there is no forestry de- partment office at Lethbridge, people here can write for per- mits to the Alberta Forest Ser- vice, Blairmore or to the Al- berta Fish and Wildlife Service at Pincher Creek. During weekends from 8 a.m. until dark, permits are avail- able at mobile ranger check stations located on all main roads into forest reserves. A check station usually con- sists of a manned green-color- ed Alberta government truck with an insignia on the door and the initials A.F.S. painted on the roof. Roads into the hills during the past weekend were in good enough condition to allow regu- lar passenger vehicles access, but "with a heavy snowfall, four wheel drive vehicles would he the only way to get in." Trees must hi. taken outside park boundaries, he said. Crowsnest forest maps are also available with permits.

Alcohol has been considered a major contributing factor in a great number of fatal traffic accidents. In Lethbridge last month a coroner's jury ruled tire con-! sumption of beer had been par- tially responsible for the death I of a Calgary man in a single j car accident near the city in' September. The Alberta Motor Associa- tion has compiled a list of many of the most common and most dangerous alcohol misconcep- tions plus a list of how each statement should read: A person is not under the influence of alcohol until he has lost all clearness of in- tellect, self control and con- trol of his involuntary muscu- lar responses. A person is actually under the influence of alcohol when be loses any contro' that he would otherwise possess. Alcohol is a stimulant.

Alcohol is good for a snake- bite. Alcohol does nothing for a snake-bite. If a person is in shock from the bite it could make the condition worse. A pei-son will get as drunk on beer as by drinking other drinks which contain the same amount of aclohol, Tile amount of water in beer actually slows the ab- sorption rate of the alcohol; therefore, one does not get as drunk. A pei-son will get drunker by switching drinks. Assuming ail the drinks contain the same amount of water and alcohol, it doesn't make any difference. i Eating onions and garlic i will interfere with a legal i breath test for alcohol. The breath test Is specifi- cally designed for alcohol. Other substances will not ap- preciably interfere with the test. Alcohol is not an anesthe- tic. It is. It is directly related in chemical composition and physical effects to chlor- oform, ether and other anes- thetic compounds. >x 'vVl Nineteen WIN A BOOK The four pictures above comprise the last of five groupings to be printed in The Herald.
