Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta We invite you to drop in and see BERNICE VOTH for all your European travel arrangements. ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL -Centre Village Mall Phone 328-3201 The Lethbridge Herald SECOND SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, Friday, February 16,1973 PAGES 13 TO 24 lethbridge office furniture ltd. Lower Level 7th Street Shopping Mall Lethbridge, Alberta Phone (403) 328-7411 FILING CABINETS City to insist on sewage meters says industry By JIM MAYBIE Hefrald Staff Writer The city is going to insist that local industry install effluent metering and sampling devices, a local industrialist says. The devices will meter and sample effluent from plants on a 24-hour basis and a seven-day cycle, the spokesman said following an interview with city officials. "I find it difficult to see why the city really wants this system. Maybe it will make it less expensive for the city to monitor." The spokesman said the committee of three industrialists had a "friendly discussion" with city officials amd many problems of pollution of the air and Oldmian River were discussed. The meeting provided background information for future discussions between the city and industry, he said. The committee will report back to a group of local industrialists after which further meetings with' the city will be scheduled. The city has some very real problems with the sewage treatment plant and pollution, the spokesman indicated. The city is still "in the dark" as far as peak loadings at the sewage treatment plant are concerned, he said. At times the plant receives as much sewage to treat as a city with a population of 471,000 would provide. One of the city's problems, he indicated, is that it didn't have sufficient contact with industry when the city's secondary sewage treatment plant was designed. Present industry, new industry and population growth in the city are taxing the treatment plan. Industry hopes that by more meetings with the city, present problems can be resolved and future expansion of treatment facilities can be better planned. One problem t\e city has created for industry, he said, is that it keeps changing its rules and regulations. Industry bases its pollution control programs on certain parameters set by the city and proceeds on that basis only to find a few months later that there are new regulations and more expense. If the city would just make up its mind, set the regulations and stick with them for a few years, industry would know where it stands and could plan accordingly, the spokesman indicated. PHARMACY FACTS FROM O. C. STUBBS DON'T MIX DRUGS & DRIVING Has it ever occured to you that liquor, in its various forms, is a drug? That, in fact, liquor taken in correct amount is actually a sedative which can bring on relaxation and sleep? And do you knov; that drinking liquor in combination with drugs being used can be I actively - dariger-lous, in fact possibly fatal? And do you know that you can be stopped on the road or highway and convicted for drug intoxication just as well as for liquor intoxication? Drug intoxication symptoms, to the average layman, are quite, similar to liquor intoxication symptoms: speech that is often incoherent, double vision, unsteadiness, sleepines and lack of comprehension, for example. So please don't mix liquor with other drugs - and please don't mix either liquor or drugs with your driving. Here at your friendly pharmacy, (Stubbs, of course), we're always glad to give you free prescription delivery. Just call us at 328-5512, and'we'll be glad to go into action for you-immediately. Open daily 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Sundays and Holidays 12 noon to 9:00 p.m. Everyone is interested in pollution, he said, and industry generally is doing its best to measure up to regulations and requirements. "After all, we all live in Lethbridge and individually pay taxes the same as everyone else." Randy Holfeld, city engineer, has a simple "no comment" on this week's meeting with the industrialists. BRITISH PAPERS ACQUIRED A 36-vblume set of 19th century British Parliamentary papers pertaining to Canada - plus an entire collection of briefs and publications connected with the recent Status of Women Royal Commission - has been acquired by the University of Lethbridge. Royal Commission data was donated to the U of L library by Lola Lange of Claresholm, a member of the university's board of governors and senate. Mrs. Lange is a former member of the Status of Women commission. The British Parliamentary papers include topics such as events leading up to the Durham Report, the Hudson's Bay Company, the Red River Settlement, immigration to Canada, the Canadian boundary and Canadian . railways. Southern Alberta residents are encouraged to apply for a U of L library card and use the campus facilities at their disposal. Students to answer tax questions Nine University of Lethbridge students will answer questions on the new Income Tax Act during a campus meeting Feb. 21. Student panelists, all taking a course in public finance revenue, will participate in the conference beginning at noon in room D519 of the academic-residence building. Participating will be Dale Clay, Barry Miller, Tom Seaman, Brian Silliphant, Dave Skelton, Reg Summach, Don Szarko, Phil Tong and Jan Van Egteren. The meeting is open to the public. CLIFF BLACK; Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAI MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. lower Level PHONE 327-2822 Bound for France cattle inspector Bob McMann checks for identification RICK ERVIN photo U.S. would send marines to quell revolt - scientist The United States will send marines, as it has done in the past, to Latin American countries if there is revolutionary movement to get rid of American control, a visiting Mexican scientist predicted Thursday. In most Latin American countries, a few rich families control the politics and economy of these nations and they in turn are controlled by the U.S., Dr. Lilia Albert de Marquez said. Dr. Albert de Marquez was speaking to the weekly meeting of the Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs on the eve of her departure following a seven-week stay at the Agriculture Research Station in Lethbridge. She was here to study ways and means of setting up an insecticides laboratory at the Centre for Research' and Advanced Study, Instituto politec-nico National in Mexico City, where she is an associate professor. Addressing 50 persons on Culture and Crisis in Latin America, Dr. Albert de Marquez said Mexico is moving ahead of Canada in the advancement of the native people and in controlling the country's own destiny. She said more and more native Mexicans are moving into positions of responsibility, and laws in Mexico stipulate majority Mexican ownership of the industries. The change has been brought about slowly to avoid sudden irritation to the U.S., she pointed out. Answering questions, she said Cuba and Chile are two exceptions. "The revolution in Cuba was possible because the United States sponsored the revolution," she said. But the revolution backfired, and Fidel Castro, after coming into power, refused to take orders from Washington, she said. The election of a Marxist government in Chile was because the Chileans have "a high level of culture and are aware of a lot of things." If the U.S. pushed Chile too far, "it would find another Cuba," Dr. Albert de Marquez said. She suggested the best way to bring about change in Latin America is the slow way through education. "If you start a revolution, all you get is marines," she said. The church in Latin America is also changing. "We now have two Catholic churches, one for the rich, and one for the poor," she said. The people in Latin America do not want communism, she said. Their desire for change is driven by plain poverty for want of adequate food, clothing, housing and education. She said she saw no immediate solution to the widening gap in resources distribution between the rich few and the poor majority in Latin America.

The brothers were also charged with possession of an offensive weapon, and theft of a bedsheet. The bedsheet was used to cover the goods stolen from the Swap Shop, while the offensive weapon, a stripped-down shotgun, was found behind the seat of their half-ton truck. In passing sentence, Provincial Judge Hudson said he was taking into consideration the fact that a gun was stolen. "I don't like guns in the hands of thieves," he said. Lesser prison terms received on the other two charges will be served concurrently with the 30-day term. The 30-day sentence will be followed by a year's probation.

Phone 327-6565 European markets get south cattle By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer The first of seven shipments of Southern Alberta cattle valued at $2 million left Lethbridge this morning for France. Julien Deshorties of Pincher Creek Ranches has signed a three - year contract for a minimum of $2 million with Dreyfus Canada of Montreal to ship the feeders and slaughter cattle to markets in France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Holland and England. About 5,750 cattle will move out of Lethbridge. There will be three shipments of 450 head and four shipments of 1,100 read. The first group will move to St. John, New Brunswick, by rail for loading on ships owned by Dreyfus. Later shipments will leave Montreal for France. Mr. Deshorties said there is a one million ton shortage of meat products in Europe. He said some animals from Canada will go directly to slaughter while others will be fattened in feedlots throughout Europe. Mr. Deshorties also shipped 140 uncastrated bull calves to France by air earlier in February. He said if he can gather enough similar animals he will make another shipment. Mr. Deshorties, a former employee of the French - based distilling firm, Pernod, purchased the former 18,000-acre Alberta Ranch six miles southwest of Pincher Creek. He provides the majority of the cattle himself. He also gets cattle from Palmer Ranches at Hillspring and from Perlich Bros. Auction Market at Lethbridge and Fort Macleod Auction Market. All the cattle will move to Dieppe, France, where they will be held in quarantine for 10 days before slaughter or movement to a feedlot. Future shipments will leave Lethbridge April 10, May 15, July 10, Aug. 10, Aug. 28 and Sept. 18. Dr. Robert Lancaster of Fort Macleod, Pincher Creek area veterinarian for the health of animals branch of the Canada Department of Agric u 1 ture, said inspection of the animals was started at Pincher Creek Ranches Feb. 6. Once at Lethbridge the animals were put in sealed pens. Veterinarians ran all the animals through a gate to check identification prior to loading them on eight double deck CP Rail cattle cars. During the identification check, a close watch is kept for animals which may have been injured or which may have developed an infection. These animals are culled from the shipment, returned to the ranch and treated for future shipment. Enroute to New Brunswick, the cattle are unloaded at Winnipeg for feeding and watering. They are then reloaded and the car doors are again sealed. Jim Gough, manager of Swift Canadian Co.

He expressed a desire to see more cow - calf operations in Southern Alberta to supply the feedlot industry in the area. He said many of the feeder cattle fattened in the region come from Northern Alberta or Saskatchewan- "If this shipment out di, Southern Alberta can't help the packing industry it will helo the country's balance of payments said Mr. Gough. The cattle being shipped by Mr. Deshorties are all cows and bulls wrich would bring about $300 on the local market. He said, including transportation costs, he is getting about the same price through his contract, adding "but it is bringing fresh money into Canada which is helping the balance of payments." The seven shipments from Canada are test trips for future shipments including mutton, lamb, hogs, horses and cattle which are being planned. Nutting^s salary on council agenda City council will meet in a special session Monday at 4:30 p.m. to discuss the city manager's salary, the hiring of an assistant city manager and future steps toward the 1975 Canada Winter Games.
