HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION 909 3rd S. Ph. 327-5454 An open membership, re- gardless of religion; was voted down at the 32nd annual meet- ing of St. Savings and Credit Union Ltd. held Satur- day. The motion, presented by B. J. Merchant, manager of the union, to increase the membership, now more than members, met strong op- position but also some favor. The opposition by the ma- jority of the members was that it was better to keep it a Reman Catholic membership and build it up with them, be- cause that's where it origin- ated. Mr. Merchant along with four other members were hon- ored with charter member- ships to the union. They to- eluded Lloyd Coyne, Walter Cranley, Reg. Chisholm and James Lynn. Mr. Lynn also complimented the work of the "eteran mem- bers of various committees- William Jackson, John Babick Fred Drocte, Mrs. MarthE O'Brien, George Rodzinyak Maynard R-ishford, Frank Bryne and Jess Matlock for their work during the year, an< past years to build up the SPCU.

She said producers should also stage promotion cam- paigns for their products. "In this way, consumers would be better acquainted with the vegetable varieties Alberta growers produce, and may be more apt to purchase local commodities." Mrs. Sehultz aLso said the growers should look into some of the selling practices used to grocery stores, which to the end prove detrimental to growers. She spoke specifically of green lights which some stores utilize to make produce look fresher and more attractive. "The use of gimmicks such as this are unfair to both the consumer and the she said.

By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor An earthquake registers 6 on the Richter scale, and to the waiting world, it sounds ser- ious. But what is the Richter scale, and exactly what does the figure 6 mean? The Richter Magnitude Scale measures the magnitude of an earthquake by the amount of energy released by the shock. The amount of shock is then graded by numbers 1 to 10 These figures are not a sim- ple progression. Each figure a multiple of 10 in strength. An earthquake regis- tering 6 is 10 times stronger than one registering 5. The highest quakes ever re- corded on the Richter scale were one to Peru and the other in Columbia. The 1964 Alaska earthquake registered 8.4, 20 times stronger than the most recent one to Los An- geles this week. The Richter scale was de- vised by Dr. C. F. Richter, an American seismologist to 1935 Dr. Richter is still alive and well, and was reported to have been tumbled out of bed by last week's tremors. Another means of measurlnf earthquakes is the Modifie( MercaUl Intensity Scale used since 1931. This method mea sures the degree of destruction On the Mercalli scale, a would be felt by only a few. At 4, dishes would be disturb ed and walls would crack. At' buildings shift, the ground cracks conspicuously and there s partial collapse. At 12, the dghest reading on this scale damage would be total anr waves would be visible on tb ground surface. In comparison with the Mer calli scale, the Richter seal reports a magnitude of 2 a small shocks normally felt; is moderately destructive an at 8 there is extreme damage Variations in the degree j destruction will be registeret according to the geographica conditions at the surface. Loos rock and waterfront areas wi show more damage than bar crystalline rock.

Today more than seis- mograph stations located all over the world record about 00 tremors annually. Of these, lerhaps can be classed as actual quakes. There are about ne million tremors occurring n the world each year. Eighty per cent of the world's earthquake activity roughly co- incides with the border of the 3acific Ocean. It is also the site of much of the world's volcanic activity. The second likely spot is a branch extending from the Pa- cific near the East Indies, pass- ng through Southern Asia to _M Mediterranean Sea area. This area has about 15 per cent of the quake activity. The remaining five per cent is the Arctic, Atlantic, Ind 1 a n Ocean and east Africa. Antarc- tica and Australia are the least affected. Predicting earthquakes Is not a sure thing, although several methods have been proposed in- cluding the weather satellite Nimbus. In its short three-week life, the satellite proved it could warn of impending volcanoes and earthquakes. One of the most complex seis- mological systems is at Billings, Mont., with a detecting opera- tion spread over about 100 square miles. Opened to 1965, the project cost roughly million.
