Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE lETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturdoy, February 5, 1972 curse fears revived CAIRO (Reuter) 'Hie fear of the pharaoh's curse was re- vived with the death of the Egyptian official involved in the" shipment of the Tutankha- men treasures to London for display in the British Mu- seum. Many people connected with the of Tutankha- men's tomb just 50 years ago have died in mysterious cir- cumstances. Friday's report of the death from cerebral hemorrhage of Gamal Mehrez, director-gen- eral of the Egyptian antiqui- ties department, added to the macabre aura surrounding the to go on show in London. Lord Carnarvon, who fi- nanced the expedition which found the tomb in Luxor in upper Egypt, died from a mosquito bite three weeks after the tomb was found. Capt. Richard Bedell, who helped open the tomb, died in his sleep. More recently, a former head of the antiquities depart- ment, who signed an agree- ment in 1967 under which the treasures were exhibited in Paris, also died of cerebral hemorrhage almost immedi- ately after signing the accord. Now three senior officials of the department who super- vised the shipping of the priceless treasures to the British Museum are said to be feeling uveasy. The relics, insured for million, were shipped to Lon- don aboard an RAF jet amid unprecedented security mea- sures.

The survey was started last September to determine where the province's unemployed are located and what skills they have. It is the first stage of a survey that will provide an in- ventory of every job and job opening in the province. Dr. Hohol said a study has also been started to deal with students who will be look- ing for jobs next summer. INDEPENDENT YEARS India has had 24 years of in- dependence.

Solve problem of tapping boundless energy of sun SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Two Arizona scientists say they believe they have solved a prob- lem whose answer has long eluded efficient way of tapping the boundless cost-free energy of the sun. Dr. Aden B. Meinel of the University of Arizona and his wife Marjorie are building a device which will focus and trap sunlight. The sunlight would be con- verted into heat which would be used to run conventional electri- cal generator stations. Such stations now get their heat from nuclear fission or fos- sil fuels such as coal. The heat converts water to steam, which turns turbines connected to gen- erators. "This isn't a new electricity generating system; it's a new fuel source for generators that already Mrs. Meinel told reporters. The first device, which the Me in els call a "credibility is expected to be ready in about three months. It is about the size of a large table. The heart of the Meinels' con- verter is a stainless steel pipe on which miscroscopically thin films of molybdenum, cesium and magnesium compounds are deposited. They allow sunlight to pass through, but prevent much of the energy it contains from radiating back out. Special lenses concentrate the sunlight before it strikes the pipe, generating temperatures up to degrees. A gas or liquid flowing through the pipe carries off the heat for use at the power plant. The Meinels expect to con- struct a demonstration plant within five years. The smallest such plant might cost mil- lion and generate 25 million watts of power. Once the solar converters were built, there would be no cost for the heat they gener- ated, the scientists said. There also would be no pollution, de- pletion of natural resources or danger of radiation as exists with many present power plants. Each plant would cover an area about the size of a foot- ball field. Meinel predicted the cost would become competitive if enough units were built. Burton moves feed grain resolution EDMONTON (CP) Repre- sentatives of the livestock in- dustry urged what they called a revolutionary move in na- tional grain marketing: free movement of feed grain across Canada. Delegates to the 7fch annual convention of the Western Stock G r o w e r s' Association agreed after lengthy debate to press for removal of all restric- tions on the inter-provincial movement of oats and barley. The resolution calling for free movement of feed grains was presented by Dr. Gordon Burton of Gareshiolm, Alta., on behalf of the Canadian Cattle- men's Association. "The present system is un- he said. "Its re- strictions are undermining the economy of the country. It is bad for the livestock feeders and western and eastern Can- ada because of price discrim- ination. In the long run it will ba harmful for the grain pro- ducers because other parts of the country will find alternate feeds. I am distressed that we are piling subsidy on subsidy." Judged unfit to stand trial LEDUC (CP) Joe Hauser, 42, of Leduc, charged with at- tempted has been judged "unfit to stand trial" and has been committed to the provincial mental institution at Oliver. RCMP in Leduc said that Hauser, charged after Richard Bilsborrow, 25, of Leduc was shot in the head, has been committed to the hospital "in- definitely."

Police said today Fery Jan- oschka, 35, decided to smug- gle out his wife and two chil- dren after being refused a visa extension letting him travel from his home in Bra- tislava to play in a dance bar in Austria. Five days ago he replaced his car's gasoline tank with a small container, hid his chil- dren under the floor and passed the Czechoslovak bor- der controls without trouble. But on a second.trip with his wife, the car ran out of gasoline and the unsuspecting Czechoslovak border officiate helped.
