Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta JO -1HE KEEAIO Wedneidoy. February 24. Dangerous pottery reports confirmed Life can be beautiful says new govt. book OTTAWA (CP) Dangerous amounts of lead can be leleased from certain Italian pottery sold during the last year, the con- sumer affairs department an- nounced Tuesday. The department's laboratory tests confirmed earlier reports that the pottery could be harm- ful. The products involved include small jugs and sugar bowls, cof- fee mugs and bowls and carry the marking Italy or Italy HH Many of the jugs carry leaf- and grape patterns although others are pattern free. The department says the Ca nadian distributor of the pottery has tried to pick up all products remaining on store shelves. Ad- ditionally, he has said that any one hiving these products in his possession may return them to he point of purchase for ex- change. If the pottery is not returned, it should be destroyed immedi- ately, the department warns. The lead in the pottery glaze could dissolve into liquids or other foods and cause poisoning. This leaching is hastened if acidic foods are used such as citrus fruit juices, soft drinks and pickles. Thus high concentrations o! lead may be built up in the human system if food is regu- larly consumed from these pot- tery items, or if food is stored in them over a period of time Where children or persons ol small body weight are involved, the problem is more acute.

By MacLEOD OTTAWA (CP) Ever lie in jed at night wondering what the epartment of the secretary of tate does? For those who are that inter- ested in what goeo on in the de- jartment, ttere's a new whiz- jang book on the market telling exactly what happens there. The title appropriately enough, is Department of the Secretary of State. The department emerges looking rather lovable. When all its various prcgraTr-s and activi- ties are combined, says the pub- lication, there is a special mes- sage to the people of Canada. "Get out and see the rest ol the country, become acquainted with your neighbors in other provinces. Go to the theatre, look at the paintings, listen to music. Use the resources avail- a'.le to nourish your intellect and develop your creative tal- ents. Enjoy life and the best il has to offer." The revenue department, preoccupied with collecting taxes, could never say this. So far, there is no sign of other departments following suit. The book starts by explaining how the department urges Ca- nadians "to claim the joys ant privileges of citizenship and to participate in government deci sion-making." THE HEROES It goes on to outline the work of the 14 corporations, commis sions and agencies under the de- partment's jurisdiction. But "the unsung of the de- partment are those in the sup- port branches. YOu will learn some obvious national museums collect, conserve, catalogue and exhibit objects in their respec- tive some not-so- obvious hearings in citizensMp courts are usually followed by informal receptions The Queen remembers to send telegrams to all Canach'a couples celebrating a 60th wee ding anniversary, the book says because she gets help from th state ceremonial and specii events 'division. This division among other things, also looks after state funerals, not to met tior. "events such as federa Anglo-Canadian talks near impasse provincial centennial telebra- ons on Parliament Hill." This particular division, ind- entally, "is concerned with pa- leanlry and ceremony to dram- tize the importa-.ce of special jceasions." CULTURAL ENRICHMENT On the other hand, the arts and cultural support branch "is ngaged in the development of iclicies and programs for the enrichment of national life." The Company of Young Cana- dians comes under the secre- ary of state's department. It's aim "puts the emphasis on as- sisting people to solve their own problems." The public service commis- sion "is responsible for applying the merit principle in public service employment." One of the main aims of the Canadian Radio-Television Com- mission "is to make suie Cana- dian broadcasting enriches the cultural, political, social anc economic fabric of Canada." The National Arts Centre in Ottawa is a showcase for "the most renowned and widely-ac- claimed Canadian companies such as the Stratford National Theatre: Shaw Festival; Thea- tre Calgary. A large share of the Canada Council assistance goes to pro- fessional artists, doctoral candi- dates and staff members of Ca nadian universities, says the book. By HAROLD MORRISON LONDON (CP) Compli- ated Anglo-Canadian trade ne- otiations resulting from a pro- wsed switch in British import are reported to be bead- ing towards an impasse. Informants said Tuesday that f no satisfactory settlement merges, Canada may withdraw ome major trade concessions ocompensatefor possible osses in the British grains mar- ket. The difficulties arise from the 3ritish government's decision to ;witch domestic farm support or certain products from treas- ury payments to import levies. Included are wheat and other items for Canada and other major grain export- 's. Under the existing system, if a domestic farmer shows losses on his sales, he gets a defi- ciency payment with the gov- ernment raising the funds from direct taxation. Under the pro- posed change, the cost of en- couraging and maintaining local production would be borne through a tax on certain im- ports. This is similar to the policy ol the European Common Market and Canadian and other officials see the British decision as a gradual move to prepare for Dividends By THE CANADIAN PRESS Calgary Power Ltd., commoi 25 cents; five per cent pfd pfd., all April 1, record March 2 Chemcell Ltd., series pfd, 23 cents; series pfd 43% cents, M a r c h 31, recor March 19. idoption of Europe's Common Agricultural Policy. SWIFT IS SURE A British official said, how- ever, the shift to import levies will be continued even if British negotiations to join the Common Market fall. The official suggested also hat the initial import tax, likely to become effective July l on wheat, may be modest. A Cana- dian official said the current world market for wheat is so tricky that even a small change could make Canadian wheat less competitive. Britain has an agreement with major grains suppliers, in- cluding Canada, protecting their markets in the country. This agreement is due to expire July 1. Record price LONDON (AP) A small still life painting by the 19th century American artist Wil- liam Michael Hartnett sold for at Christie's auction to- day. The price is a record for the artist. The same painting sold for only in the same sales room in 1897. The new owner is the Armand Hammer Foundation of Los Angeles. Informants said Britain of-' fered Canada alternative agri- cultural concessions in lieu of a 'ree market for wheat but the offers are reported to be far short of what had been ex- pected. Canada's grain market in Britain is estimated to range up to S200 million a year. The total grains market here for all the major suppliers is estimated at some million annually. EXPORTS A TARGET If Britain persists in imposing the new import tax, Canada will likely withdraw some tariff con- cessions which may curtail Brit- ish exports to Canada, inform- ants added. Canadian officials are not sure which way Britain will jump. One informed opinion is that Britain will seek permis- sion under the General Agree- ment on Tariffs and Trade to withdraw the grata market con- cessions to the major grain sup- pliers shortly so that the new policy can be imposed July 1. In seeking redress for any loss of trade, Canada will have in mind that a large number ol concessions in this market will have to be re-negotiated once Britain enters the Common Market. Geoffrey Rippon, Britain's chief Common Market negotia- or, will be in Ottawa March 5 o advise Canadian ministers on he state of bargaining. He told he House of Commons here Monday that he hopes to con- vince the Canadian government that Canada's position in Britain will be safeguarded by the transitional arrangements which will last through to 1V7I." This is the pvoposed five-year period during which Britain will gradually change its tariffs and Import taxes to match the Com- mon Market's external opera- tions.
