Fortunately, the ache of a heart-broken, Valentine romance is usually repairable without surgery and in a relatively short period of time. An ailing heart is of course another matter and you should never neglect any sort of recurring chest pains. Heart disease is still one of the leading causes of death but more and more people are able to live nearly normal lives with heart problems when the condition has been found and the proper medicines are started.

The U of L Students' Society Council will sponsor a coffee house the afternoon of March 9. Fears that stricter inspection regulations for warble infested cattle might disrupt the orderly movement of livestock in Alberta's 60 auction markets have been relieved. Stricter controls on the movement of warble infested cattle will start in Alberta Feb. 19 when veterinarians and local agricultural service board representatives begin recording the sale of infested livestock. The Alberta Auction Markets Association Saturday was told that the Alberta Department of Agriculture "will act as a buffer between the rigid approach (to warble inspection) of the local authorities and the practical approach." Bill Mead, director of the animal industry division of the provincial agriculture department, said the stricter controls were brought in by the local authorities who want to control the pest. Joe Perlich of Lethbridge, president of the auction market association, said auction market operators are concerned that if the new regulations are followed to a tee it might interfere with or cause a breakdown in the movement of cattle in the sales yards. "If there will be no problem in the marketing of the animals, then we are all for the warble control program," he said. Bob Dyck, a member of the Fort Maclecd Auction Market staff, started the discussion when he scad two inspectors would manually check each animal entering the sales ring. Mr. Mead told the group that there isn't as much need for worry about the movement of the cattle because the peak selling periods are not involved during the warble inspection season. He said every animal wouldn't have to be checked, that warbles could be determined by checking only a few animals from each area. He said animals which were headed for slaughter houses wouldn't be inspected. Cattle destined for the export market or other provinces would also go uninspected. Warbles attack cattle when the eggs from flies are laid on their legs. The developing worm works its way through the animal's body where it rests just under the skin on the back until ready to start the life cycle again as a fly. Gordon Ross, regional livestock supervisor for Southern Alberta, said the biggest loss from warbles comes from the weight loss. Warble infested animals gain 40 to 60 pounds less than warblefree animals. The value of the hide is decreased because the worm bites holes in it to breath. Since the worm has worked its way through the animals body, the packing house loses money because of the extra trimming required to get rid of the holes in the meat. Remember warm dry January? Lethbridge weather was certainly much improved last month over January, 1972, according to figures issued by the local weather office. There were only 3.3 inches of snowfall for .21 of an inch of precipitation during the month compared with 21.9 inches of snowfall and 1.49 inches of precipitation a year ago. At the end of the month there was only a trace of snow on the ground compared with eight inches a year ago. Lethbridge also had 115.6 hours of sunshine during January compared with 66.1 hours a year earlier. The low temperature of 25 degrees below last month compares with 37 below the previous year and the high of 53 above compares with 48 above the . previous January. The mean temperature of 23 degrees, however, was considerably above the mean of 6.7 degrees in 1972. Lethbridge and P i n c h e r Creek had the warmest mean temperatures in Alberta. By comparison, Dawson City in the Yukon had a mean temperature of 30.2 degrees below zero with a high of 10 above and a low of 62 below. January on the southern Prairies was generally reported as sunny, mild and the driest in the 100 years that records have been kept. Record low precipitation was reported at Regina with .05 of an inch, Winnipeg with .1 of an inch and Rockglen, Sask. with .02 of an inch. A host of record high temperatures were set after the mild air began moving in Jan. 10.
