Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 26, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, February 26, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 Lead levels Ex-farm wife's claim dismissed in food causing Leader congratulated Garlanded Sheik Mohammed Abdullah received congratulations from a woman legislator in Jammu after accession as chief minister of Indian Kashmir. Birds die, mosquitoes thrive following aerial spraying EDMONTON (CP) Birds died and mosquitoes thrived after aerial spraying was done to kill mosquitoes, the En- vironment Conservation Authority was told yesterday. Alex Allan of Edmonton, in a brief to a hearing on the use of herbicides and pesticides, said he established a colony of Purple Martins in his yard in 1948. The birds thrived until 1971 when the city began spraying from a plane at almost rooftop level. "The same day, the adults stopped feeding their young and in two days when I check- REHABILITATION HANDICAPPED WORKSHOP 1261 2nd Avenue N., Lethbridge Show ribbons and rossettes Monographed picture buttons Wedding car flowers Wedding presents cushions and trays Personal name lays New letters typed and collated ed next, I found all the young Mr. Allan said. Fewer birds returned in 1972 and those that did died after more aerial spraying. The following year, only two nesting pairs appeared and the adults'as well as the young died. No Purple Martins have returned since, he said. Mr. Allan also reported that few of the 28 species of birds he once found in a city ravine are still there. "Yet I dare anybody to go through the ravine after the city has sprayed. They'll get eaten alive by the mos- quitoes." Jim Goode, a Wetaskiwin area farmer, recommended to the authority that no aerial spraying be permitted in parkland areas except in emergencies. He recounted incidents of crops, gardens and trees being damaged or destroyed by her- bicide drifting from spraying operations over a neighbor's field. concern OTTAWA (CP) Canadian data show lower lead levels in canned baby fruit juices and milk than comparable United States figures but there is no reason to be complacent, a senior health department of- ficial said Tuesday. Dr. A.B. Morrison, assis- tdnt deputy minister of health protection, said the govern- ment is concerned about the total intake of lead by persons and is to meet with container manufacturers in the next few weeks to discuss the issue. A survey by the Health Re- search Group, an organization led by U.S. consumer ad- vocate Ralph Nader, found lead levels in evaporated milk and fruit juice that is twice the safe level. The group urged the U.S. government to crack down on lead in liquids which could put children in jeopardy of lead poisoning. Dr. Morrison said there was a general problem of high lead levels in the over-all Canadian diet. The government was sur- veying both fruit juices and milk he added. "There is a need for cons- tant surveillance and he said. In fruit juices, the lead con- tent in Canada was about 160 micrograms of lead per 1.76 pints Morrison said. The U.S. study found lead levels ranging from 100 to micrograms per litre while apple juice avcraged.490 micrograms and orange juice 190 micrograms. There is natural lead oc- curring in foods. Fresh Cow's milk contained 45 micrograms, Dr. Morrison said about one-third of that found in evaporated milk. The rest comes from the solder used to seal metal food and drink containers. WON BY 2 MILLION In the 1948 election Presi-l dent Harry Truman beat I Thomas E. Dewey by plurality of 2.1 million votes. TheVolvol64 TRUE LUXURY IS MORE CAR TO THE FOOT. NOT MORE FEET TO THE CAR. There are two kinds of luxury. The kind that makes a car fancy. And the kind that makes it better. In times like these, you'd be smart to give serious thought to which one you should choose. We have. The result is the new Volvo 164. Volvo knows that a comfortable driver is a better driver. Our bucket seats let you firm or soften the area at the small of your back. The driver's seat is heated. And air conditioning is standard. Volvo thinks it's distracting to work when you drive. So the 164 comes equipped with power steering, power front windows, power-assisted disc brakes, front and rear. And automatic transmission. We do, however, admit to one elegant indulgence. The 164 furnishes you with genuine leather to sit on. At a time when other car makers are singing the praises of opera windows, think about this. One car maker has devoted a lot of thought to what luxury truly is. And it's not a passing fancy. It's a Volvo. TheluxurycarforpepplewhotMnk. Short Stop Auto Ltd. 8th street South, Lethbridge 328-6586 CALGARY (CP) The Alberta Court of Appeals Tuesday dismissed a claim for property by a 50 year old former farm wife and ordered a lower court judge to reopen a hearing into the claim for a lump-sum cash settlement. Barbara Ann Fiedler won a supreme court decision last August giving her one half interest in the farm she shared with her husband until 1970. The three judge court held that while she could not claim property rights the matter of cash settlement based on the value of the farmland was not adequately explored by the first trial judge. Mrs. Fiedler said she will ask her lawyers to prepare an appeal against the split deci- sion for presentation to the Supreme Court of Canada. The Fiedlers were divorced in 1970. Mrs. Fiedler had taught school for 15 of their 22 years of marriage and had used her teaching salary to support the family while her husband ran the farm. 'After the divorce was final, Mrs. Fiedler commenced legal action to obtain halt interest in the farm. After the original court decision awarding her half interest, Mr. Justice W. K. Moore said if he had awarded the woman a cash settlement instead of land interest the value would have been about half the value of the farm.
