Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Bow Island once scene of helium production EDMONTON (CP) - Tests are under way at the Alberta Research Council on ways to produce cheap helium, the darling of theoretical inventors because it remains liquid at a lower temperature than any other gas. Helium, which won't freeze under ordinary temperatures, could be used in many exotic, modern machine? but liquid helium is too expensive under present production methods. For instance, computers could be made much smaller if liquid helium could be used as a coolant. Electricity could be carried across Canada without any loss if some cheap way could be found to keep the wires cool with liquid helium. Car dealers help in loans sought OTTAWA (CP) - The Senate banking committee was asked Wednesday to help car dealers avoid certain lending provisions in proposed investment companies legislation. J. B. Gregorovich of Fort Motor Credit Co. said in presenting a brief from the Federated Council of Sales Finance 54 persons arrested in drug raids WASHINGTON (AP) - Attorney-General John N. Mitchell announced Wednesday the arrests of 54 persons and seizures of nearly $13 million in narcotics in what he termed "the largest federal crackdown ever on narcotics distribution by organized crime." The raids were carried out after 10 p.m., Tuesday in New York City, Hartford, Conn.., Chicago and New Orleans, with earlier arrests in connection with the case in Philadelphia, Detroit and Baltimore. Mitchell said the raids and previous arrests netted some of the "high-echelon figures" in the country's organized crime syndicate. Although he did not use the terms, Mitchell acknowledged that he was referring to the Cosa Nostra or the Mafia. Federal agents arrested 54 persons, with 32 still sought, Mitchell said. Eighty-nine persons were arrested prior to 10 p.m. Tuesday, making the total number arrested or sought 175. Mitchell said the arrests climaxed a five-month investigation in which a total of 71 pounds of heroin. 49 pounds of cocaine and 256 pounds of marijuana, with an illegal retail value of $12.8 million, were seized Companies that the proposed legislation would prohibit a combination of equity or capital and non-equity financing to car dealers from manufacturers. "In view of the severity of the consequences on existing and future automobile leaderships, these companies will probably seek exemption," Mr. Gregorovich said. But the grounds for granting exemptions were "very narrow." They depended on the discretion of the minister of finance. Mr. Gregorovich suggested that the grounds be broadened to give the minister "a reasonable area of discretion." "We are interested in the comments of the members of the committee as to the likelihood of such exemptions being granted if applied for." WOULD WEAKEN BILL Richard Humphrys, government insurance director, said the bill was not intended to allow the minister's discretion to reach into the areas suggested by Mr. Gregorovich. The fact that car manufacturers put money into new car dealerships was not looked at as an investment, but as an attempt to get the new business started and into the hands of an independent businessman. Any attempt to accommodate the concerns of Mr. Gregorovich would weaken the section of the bill dealing with the minister's power of discretion. "We didn't think this was a proper thing to do," Mr. Humphrys said. Statistics show that the credit extended to dealerships from finance branches of Ford, General Motors and Chrysler totalled $83.7 million on Dec. 31, 1970 MAJOR BOOST EDMONTON (CP) - Visitors to Edmonton in 1970 added $47,415,300 to the city's economy, the industrial development department reported. Helium was produced early in the century from natural gas in the Bow Island field in south-central Alberta. At present the only production in Canada i.i in Saskatchewan with most sold in Europe and a little in Canada. Helium, which won't burn, wbs advocated for lighter-than-air aircraft after many dirigibles exploded and burned. But the largest use now probably is pressurized fuel for rockets. Helium forces Hie fuel, which wouldn't move on its own, into the burners. TRY FILTER METHOD An estimated 56 trillion cubic feet of natural gas lies untapped under Alberta. About .05 per cent of that is helium. Dr. W. H. Habgood, chief of the fuel s branch at the Alberta council, estimated that would be about 28 billion cubic feet of helium. Methods of separating helium from natural gas in the United States, where the average percentage of helium is eight times higher, are too expensive to use here. In the United States the natural gas is put under extreme low temperatures and all the gases except helium liquify. Then the helium is bled off. Current study at the Alberta Research Council is concentrated on using a special plastic material to act as a filter. It is hoped scientists can find a material that will allow the helium in natural gas to pass through it faster than other gases Thus the helium would be separated. Dr. Habgood said he hesitated to judge the success of the study so far but is "enthusiastic." "We're tackling * very difficult problem," he said. Success could open up a whole new facet of the natural gas industry. Lent begius for members of RC faith ROME (AP) - Pope Paul received a smudge of ashes on his forehead Wednesday the beginning of Lent-and said that he perhaps more than any other needed t h e ritual reminder: "Remember, man, that thou art dust and to dust thou shalt return." The brief annual ceremony took place in St. Peter's Basii-ica, where a short time later the Roman Catholic pontiff addressed his regular Wednesday general audience. In his prepared speech, he inserted the usual remark: "Today, I. too, received the j ash and the reminder on the head. I, who perhaps have more need of it than others." \ He did not elaborate.
