Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 LETHBRIDQi HERALD Thursday. February 7, 1174 Canada launches new sales pitch for nuclear reactors By ROD CURRIE LONDON (CP) Canada today launched a crucial new sales pitch for its Candu nu- clear reactors in Britain, em-, phasizing safety and economic value. Lome Gray, president of Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., opened the campaign with a speech before the British Nuclear Energy Society, saying Canada has developed a unique line of nuclear plants that are "economically competitive and unexcelled in safety characteristics." The four units of the Picker- ing, Ont. Candu plant, he said, "constitute the largest and one of the most reliable of the world's nuclear generating systems." "The international market ,is beginning to notice the Candu Gray said, noting that Argentina has purchased a Canadian reactor and South Korea has opened negotiations for one and possibly two Canadian units. Gray said several other countries are showing renewed interest in the Candu system. MORE BUSINESS HINTED "It appears that if this interest develops into contracts, some Canadian manufacturers will be required to increase their Gov't awaits West support on grain shipment solution OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment appears ready to apply what one official calls band-aid treatment to the western grain movement problem while waiting for western opinion to swing, behind a long-term solution. One source said recently that Otto Lang, minister responsible for the Canadian wheat board, will announce within a month the government response to a wheat board request for another rail hopper cars to carry grain. Some action was likely: But the government would not act immediately on proposals to overhaul the entire grain transportation system. Ideas like altering the statutory grain rate rouse emotions and require long another two years, the source said. Meanwhile, informed sources in the railways and the grains group advising Mr. Lang predict another tight year for grain movement in western Canada. The wheat board has told the government it needs the new hopper cars to handle the booming grain trade. Charles Gibbings, a wheat board commissioner, said recently the board doesn't care whether they are built and owned by the rail- ways or by the government. Based on revenue they gain from carrying grain, the rail- ways are unlikely to build the hoppers-cars specially de- signed for the grain trade. BUILT The government built hopper cars two years ago and Y.W.C.A. presents ART a by doing approach to making STARTS: Monday, Feb. 11th p.m. COST: for 4 weeks INSTRUCTOR: MR. JOCK GOURLAY Registrations taken at the Y.M.C.A. only Office Hours 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. parcelled them out to the rail- ways while retaining ownership. The alternative to building hoppers is to repair old boxcars and rent additional equipment from United States railways. Norman MacMillan, Canadian National Railways president, said in December that his railway is rehabilitating boxcars. New boxcars are not being built to handle grain and, the old type, some up to 50 years old, are declining in number. The United Grain Growers Ltd., a western farm group, said recently that the number of general-purpose boxcars dropped to in 1973 from in 1963. Even if the government de- cides to build the hop- strong big repair program may have to be undertaken. One informant said the rail car manufacturing industry already is plugged for a year with other orders. While the railways say they are meeting wheat board grain movement targets, board spokesmen have produced different figures indicating the railways are falling short. They have no explanation for the difference in statistics. I Ireat her gently. HiramWalker's Special Old production capacity and the engineering capabilities of both Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. and its sub- contractors may have to be said. A number of British com- panies have been providing components for the Candu sys- tem and Gray's hint of possible increased sales would mean more business for these British producers. For example, the Ontario Hydro Commission, largest user of Candu reactors, has committed about million worth of turbine work to British companies and is negotiating for another million worth to be completed in the next five years. Ideally, Canada would prefer a joint program with Britain to use the Candu system for expansion of Britain's nuclear network. HOPE RAISED Canadian hapes were raised Monday when an all-party Commons committee recommended that Britain push ahead with its own troubled system and give up the idea of buying U.S. reac- tors whose safety has been questioned. The British and Canadian systems have design similarities and concentration on .the British design would probably include some Canadian contracts. The final decision on the 'System to be selected will be made by Energy Secretary Lord Carrington after a full parliamentary debate. Macdonald and McKeough will meet Carrington Friday. Toilet paper shortage hits Britain LONDON (Reuter) Brit- ain's industrial crisis has pro- duced a new paper hoarding. Supermarkets are running out of supplies as housewives stock shelves with; enough toilet paper to keep their families supplied for months. The country's largest manu-. facturer of toilet paper, on a three-day week like the rest of industry, has been forced to keep its product to one color in an effort to maintain supplies. A spokesman for the company said that there is no shortage, only "the same irrational panic which caused motorists to keep topping up the petrol tanks of their cars when there was a possibility of rationing last December."

The World Book Encyclopedia says Roman women wore wigs imported from Germany or made from the hair of German captives. They also dyed their hair. TV highlights THURSDAY MOVIE: "Savage 6 p.m., Ch. 7.

Leg bone fragments of fossil man shown WASHINGTON (AP) Fragments of leg bones from a three-foot-tall human ancestor that apparently walked upright on a grassy Ethiopian plain three million years ago were displayed Tuesday by their discoverer. The fossilized of them, each about three inches the "oldest, most complete fragments of fossil man ever Dr. D. Carl Johanson of Case Western Reserve University told a news conference. Based on the geology of the discovery site in northern Ethiopia and comparison with other anthropological sites, Johanson said the bones are at least three million years old. The fragment of a piece of bone near the left ear found about a mile is of similar antiquity, he said. "We now have concrete evi- dence our ancestors walked on two legs three million years the 30-year-old scientist said. r The fossil remains found last Oct. 30 by of an international anthropoligical expedition in the Afar-Awash Valley north of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia's the oldest of man's ancestors ever found. A fragment of a jaw found eight years ago in Kenya sev- eral hundred miles to the south is believed to be about five million years old. But there were no other bones to indicate if this oldest example of fossil man walked upright. Determining when man first stood upright and then began to use tools in his daily life are critical questions for anthropologists. Drop in sugar price predicted TORONTO (CP) Neil Shaw, president of Redpath Industries Ltd., says sugar prices will definitely start dropping by mid-year. A doubling in price during the last three months, to more than 25 cents a pound for supermarket shoppers, was "higher than we anticipated." he told a shareholders meeting "But in our experience, the higher it goes then the quicker it falls and the faster it falls." Redpath Industries operates one of Canada's largest sugar refineries. Current high prices have been blamed on speculators and a breakdown in the international sugar agreement of 1968. Mr. Shaw said his company and other sugar companies do not tie profit to the selling price.
