Palmer, medical officer of health, urges parents to ensure their children are fully protected against contag- ious disease, NATAL and sacrifice met challenges of said Harry M. Conger, v i c e-president and general manager of Kaiser Resources Limited, in a message to em- ployees. Mr. Conger said that in re- flection, 1971 had been a year of many challenges. In order to meet these chal- lenges, some significant changes have been made. These changes were not ac- complished without major ef- fort or sacrifice on the part o1 workers. Early in the year, modifica- tions to the Harmer mining plans, as well as to the Ellt- view Preparation Plant, were completed. Based on this revised dala, C. L. Emerson, president of Kaiser Resources Ltd., led a negotiating team in Tokyo. After nearly three months of tough bargaining, he was able to secure an interim agree- ment with ths Japanese Sleel Mill customers, which allowed the company to ship coal at a higher price. During this interim period, Kaiser Resources was lo com- plete the modifications to its operations and achieve an effi- cient level of performance. During the months that fol- lowed, construction work in the Elkview Preparation Plant proceeded while the plant con- tinued lo operate. Good production was attain ed during this period consider- in? the conditions under which .___ Kaiser had to operate. During I game. the same period, production of Harmer Operations indicated significant improvement, re- flecting greater efficiency and equipment availability. Also, newly formulated mining plans called for greater tonnages of underground coal to be pro- cessed through the Elkview Preparation Plant making this part of our operation very im- portant to the long-range suc- cess of the company. Grads gather at Granum GRANUM (HNS) The 1961 graduation class from the Granum High School held a re- union in the school auditorium recently with over half the class members and their fam- ilies attending. Class teachers present were Mrs. Mildred Cochlin, Slavery; Mr. and Mrs. Joe Schmidt, Fort Madeod and Mr. and Mrs. Wilf Sullivan, Granum. Mr. Sullivan called the roll from the old class register and those n nied answered by in- troducing their families. Mrs. Jim (Linda Lee) Smith, class valdietorian, gave a short talk. The afternoon was spent in renewing acquaintances. A display of class mementos, pictures and basketball uni- forms, decorated the auditori- m. In the evening the men from the class played a basketball The Michel coke oven opera- tion has continued to perform favorably and has contributed :o our company's profit situa- tion. To complete the picture, the deep water port st Westshore Terminals has indicated by Us outstanding performance thai it is Uie model for all future deep water superports. The scheduled downtime at the Elkview Preparation Plant in November to tie in the con- struction work was completed on schedule and the resultant modifications proved to he very effective in the days which followed the startup. The unfortunate fire, which occurred Dec. 4 was "very di appointing." "I have every confidence that we will quickly recove from this misfortune. We hav> every reason to ba optimistl about 1972; we have the recent- ly improved Elkview Prepara- tion Plant which has demon slrated its productive capabil- ity; we have the Harmer op- eration that is continuing to improve its productive capabil- ity; we have a growing Michel operation that is setting low cost and production rales thai will be the envy of coal miners the world over; we have con tinued operations of our Miche coke ovens; we have the most outstanding bulk terminal load- ing facility in North America 1 and we have a customer who has demonstrated by his ac- tions, his faith in our ability to I produce coal I said Conger.
