Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta paper outlook good OTTAWA (CP) Officials of the pulp and paper industry are expecting an increase in demand, the Commons was tolc Tuesday night. Bruce Howard Okanagan parliamentary secretary to Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pepin, said that during a recent meeting with government representatives, officials of the industry said they believe the bottom of the market has been reached and improvement is ahead. Mr. Howard was replying to Jack Marshall Humber-St. George's-St. who said he is disturbed about apparent government apathy towards the problems facing pulp and paper industries. It is a source of frustration and aggravation to him he said during late-night debate. About 350 skilled workers in Comer Brook, Nfld., were losing jobs with the closing of a paper machine at tiie Bowater operation, and a total of would be indirectly affected. Mr. Howard said the industry has always had a problem reconciling supply and demant but the government is takin the present problems most ser ously.

(CP) -English-speaking high school students from the north side of Winnipeg recently took part in a one-day total immersion experiment in francophone education without the benefit of Tlie students, mostly seniors from St. John's high school, travelled by bus to this sma'.l, predominantly French-speaking community about 100 miles southv.-est of Winnipeg. They spent the day with their counterparts at Notre Dame de Lourdes and were immersed in French for most of the day. The students took part In a French class, watched a French film and participated in several discussion groups. Then at lunchtimc the students dined at the parish hall where they received a bit of a jolt. I n s t r u c t i o n s, all ir. French, reminded them of some after-meal chores. The girls washed the dishes and the boys dried them. PROVED SUCCESS Alfred Laser, a teacher from the Winnipeg school, said tlie experimen proved to be a happy success afler a few unsuccessful exchange programs attempted in the past. "Students often can't go for one week but they can go for the he said. Tlie students from the Lourdes school now have an open invitation to visit the Winnipeg school. Mr. Laser said students at liie Winnipeg school carne from a variety of ethnic or-gins. "French is not their second it is usually their third. It is important for ju-students to realize Uiat there are some people to whom French is the first language. Those who are taking French now are the ones who are genuinely interested in learning tlie language." Although some of the students' French was not up to a level where they could converse with ease, most said they had talked and learned more in that one contact than they learned in a month at school.

So the industry which handles million worth of uncut stones each year has called upon science to help. Diamond Trading Co. of London, which handles 80 per cent of tiie world's rough diamonds for producing countries including South Africa, Southwest Africa, Botswana, Liberia, Angola, Sierra Leone, Tinzania and the former Belgian Congo, las asked university scientists to help find the best possible conditions for diamond sorting. There are three thousand categories of diamonds and the 300 sorters on the trading company's staff must find their way through heaps of stones, soiling them for shape, size, color and weight. Shrewd buyers from diamond-cutting centres such as Antwerp, New York, Tel It job Bombay and Amsterdam visit London to view the "parcels" prepared for them, and know they are graded. They inspect the gems in private rooms facing the northern light. LIGHT IS FACTOR And light, in fact, is the crucial factor. Skill and experience make a diamond roller; and the value of the gem, and how it is treated, must depend on his fine judgment. But technology is taking over routine operations in the industry as more and more of the world's diamonds pour into the trading company headquarters, and the pressure of work Uiere grows. Only comparatively recently has artificial lighting been used in the sorting process, and then only for certain jobs. Many techniques have been tried, but nothing completely suitable has evolved. In London, natural northern lii'it is traditionally the most hi! >ful, especially for color grading. But in short winter days this means an early end to some sides of the sorters' work. Strain and glare and a certain monotony working all day with tiny bright arc also among working factors which need constant attention. Now, in a tie-up between industry and the academic world, tlie trading company has asked scientists at Lougliborough University of Tecluio'.ogy in tlie Midlands to find the best passible conditions for diamond sorting.
