Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Friday. February 15, British experts impressed by Canada's Candu system TORONTO (CP) Britain's chief science adviser says he will make highly favorable report of the Canadian-designed nuclear power system on his return from a two-day study here. Sir Alan Cottrell, who headed a small group of British nuclear power experts, told a news con- ference that possible Anglo- Canadian nuclear power collaboration hinges on a policy decision expected "within a month or two." First Britain must decide whether it will choose the United States's system using light-water reactors and en- riched uranium or proceed with development of a heavy- water system such as the Canadian designed Candu reactor. A third choice is available, he said, which would mean ex- panding Britain's own gas- cooled reactor system. A small prototype of that design has been "running rather well for a number of years." He said this "strategic deci- sion" will be made after cabi- CAREERS WELDERS Required by Canadian Sugar Factories Ltd.

T2H QMS net consideration on the recommendation of a newly created nuclear power advisory board, of which he is a member. Sir Alan declined to say which system is receiving the most favorable consideration from the board as a whole, but said he favors a heavy-water system. CLOSELY RELATED Britain's unproven steam- generating heavy-water reactors (SGHW) is a "first- cousin" to the Canadian Candu system, he said, and might benefit with collaboration with Canadian technology. Lottery labelled sucker bet WASHINGTON (AP) State lotteries, say the critics, are a sucker bet for the gambler and a regressive tax that yields< only trifling revenues for government coffers. Nonetheless, the lottery business is growing. "Lotteries have not sig- nificantly reduced the total volume of illegal gambling, and hence do not appear to have reduced the corruption of public officials nor freed law enforcement resources from anti-gambling says a soon-to- be-published federal report. Such criticisms are having little discernible effect on state officials who, in ever increasing numbers, are shrugging aside objections to legalized gambling and seizing upon the lottery as a novel alternative to politically unpopular taxes. A NLW Newsletter, a Florida-based statistical revort, says official lotteries in eight states sold million worth of tickets at an average cost of 87 cents each, paid out about million in prizes, and collected some million in state reve- nues. Despite the variety of criti- cisms, the opposition to lotteries is not well organized. However, it is vocal and some federal authorities are beginning to take another look in hopes of getting a clearer picture. The gambling policy review commission soon will start public hearings as the first step in a major study of lotteries. Its first report is due in October. From the bettor's standpoint the biggest drawback to lotteries is the poor return on the investment, usually 40 to 45 cents on the (4 dollar. Consumer Reports calls this a "legal sucker bet" compared with most other forms of gambling such as horse racing, 80 cents or more; casino games, 90 cents or more, and the numbers, 60 to 70 cents. But even the severest critics concede that lotteries do not pose the hazard of some other games which induce the better to overindulge. Even the most habitual ticket buyers rarely spend more than a year, the magazine says.

"I'm having big problems. The government has us over a damn barrel and I'm fed up with it. I done made up my mind I'm not going to let it happen again." Orr said that dur- ing the last week four customers have stolen gasoline from his station, e says that with a voluntary distribution plan in effect in Penn- sylvania today, he sees more trouble ahead. "I can't stay in business with people doing me like he said. "I try to col- lect the money before I put the gas in their cars. The other day a customer says he needs antifreeze. My man went and got two gallons of antifreeze while the car was being filled with gas. When we look up the customer was done backing out. My man tried to stop him and he damn near ran over my man. "Now I'm wearing my gun and nobody is going to take any gas from me. I've been robbed four times of gas. That's enough." Under Pennsylvania's distribution system, customers will be able to get gas on alternate days, but only if they have less than half a tankful. Orr says it won't work, partly because "I ain't going to stick my head in somebody's car to see if he's got a half tank of gas." I'd look like a damn fool." Handicapped drive runs into difficulty EDMONTON (CP) Some handicapped volunteers collecting funds on their own behalf report negative reaction because of their physical condition. "One man said I was prosti- tuting my handicap, that I was using my handicap to get said Darlene Stephenson, an attractive, soft-spoken girl who must cope with a severe limp. She was one of the volunteers who participated in a recent blitz of 67 high-rise apartment buildings seeking donations for social service programs for the handicapped. Others also said they were accused of using their condition to get funds and they were insulted and treated rudely. "One guy asked me why we didn't all go on welfare and then slammed the door in my said Diane Rudanec, confined to a wheelchair. Percy Wickman, chairman of the fund drive, said the in- cidents were scattered and were not a general pattern. Mr. Wickman said the fund drive, which replaced the March of Dimes, will be lucky to reach half of its ob- jective. Only has been raised and the campaign ends Friday.
