The Luschers live at 1259 5A Ave. S. Daniel was born at St. Michael's General Hospital - which now has the distinction of being the birthplace of the Lethbridge New Year's baby for the past six years. Daniel's weight was recorded as 4,220 grams, under the hospital's policy to use metric measures in keeping with international practice. That's nine pounds and four ounces, in the more traditional system. Daniel was also 2114 inches long, or tall, depending on your viewpoint. He and his parents will receive gifts from a number of local merchants in return for his timing ability. -Photo by Bryan Wilson. Two in Medicine Hat area Gundlock supports investigation of foreign influence in education By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer Lethbridge MP Deane Gundlock says the government sponsored investigation into foreign influence in Alberta post-secondary educational institutions is necessary. The influence of non - Canadian teachers, notably Americans, is "definitely a p r o b-lcm," he said. Mr. Gundlock, a member of the joint senate - house committee on constitutional reform, said the committee has heard numer o u s criticisms on the 14 rabies tests prove positive Whether or not there is a potential rabies danger in southern Alberta is "a $64 question" but so far there is no problem, according to Dr. W. J. Dor-ward, of the Lethbridge Animal Diseases Research Institute. He said there have been 14 positive tests made in Alberta this year, including one in Medicine Hat and one in EJkwater, in the south. One also came from High Level, near the Northwest Territories border. "We don't want to minimize the dangers," Dr. Dorward said, "but right now there's no cause to push any panic button." He cautioned that the fact there have been no positive rabies testings in southwestern Alberta shows only that of the animals sent in, none have had tabies. He said the 14 positives from throughout the province resulted after the first positive case was made public, bringing a rash of test requests. Dr. Dorward added that while there have been 40 Albertans treated for rabies this year this does not indicate they actually have rabies.

PHONE 327-2822 ments immediately. The animal is sent down to us for testing, and it may take some time before we know for certain. "I imagine many of those 40 treatments have been discontinued," Dr. Dorward said. He said Alberta has tended to be rabies - free for a number of years, while both Saskatchewan and British Columbia have had a problem. Rabies has approached Alberta from Saskatchewan, but the R o c k y Mountains protect Alberta from B.C. rabies because the common animal carriers do no! tend to migrate across them. "No animals are natural carriers," Dr. Dorward said, "but all animals can contract rabies and then spread it." He said the incubation period averages four to six weeks, although it can last up to eight or nine months. The length of time until the animal dies depends on where the original bite or contact was. Rabies is spread only by saliva from a rabid animal, and the saliva must come in contact with the other animal's (or a man's) blood either through a bite or contact with an open wound. Rabies is known as a "neurotrophic" virus, since it attacks the nervous system and eventually the brain. It also reaches the salivary glands, from where it can be spread. Dr. Dorward said simple precautions are all that are necessary to protect pet owners from themselves getting rabies. He said people should be certain their pets are vaccinated, they should be cautious when SMILEY'S PLUMBING BASEMENT BATHROOMS REMODELLING Phone 328-2176 # AND THdltllri5 \ Jaat of ereryiflfaa-in too N�w Year.

Most pets vaccinated today receive a DRA-strain tissue culture vaccine, good for two or more years of pet immunity, but other vaccines last less time. The vet who treated the pet in the past can tell the pet-owner when a new vaccination is needed.

But a "No Dumping" sign at a dump - er, at a sanitary landfill? Really, now. What might have happened is that the dump - er, sanitary landfill - resolved to clean up its act for 1971. What is more likely, however, is that the, uh, sanitary landfill is the place to dump refuse, as directed by the sign on the right. The sign on the left asks that no one dump refuse along the roadside. How confusing! COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. 909 3rd Ave. S.

Mr. Gundlock said a teacher's background and experience influence his everyday decisions. Hence non - Canadians still tend to judge issues by their home-country situation. He suggested the provincial Time limit set on return of deposits The provincial Landlord and Tenant Act stipulates landlords must return security deposits to tenants within 10 days after the termination of tenancy. If all or part of the deposit is to be deducted in accordance with conditions agreed to by the tenant, the landlord must deliver a statement and return the balance of deposit within 10 days after the tenant has moved out. If the landlord is unable to determine the exact deductions within 10 days, he must deliver an estimated statement and return the estimated balance within 10 days. This must be followed up within 30 days after tenancy termination with a final statement and final balance. A person who contravenes these stipulations, as set out in the office consolidation of the act, is guilty of an offence and liable on summary conviction to a fine of not more than $100. If a landlord fails to return all or, part of the deposit, regardless of whether the tenant received a statement of account, the tenant may take proceedings under The Small Claims Act. investigation should study textbooks used in Alberta institutions. Judging foreign influence should take the form of the committee sitting in on classes, but students and teachers' associations should be included on evaluation teams. He said there is a difference between the Canadian - born person who takes his higher education in the U.S. "to broaden his experience" and the American-born and educated teacher "who has never heard of Canada before." "I am critical of the present situation, but not pessimistic." He said on the national level some American teachers who are "not entirely successful in their own country," come to Canada because they are given the opportunity to continue in their profession and because salaries are generally higher than in the U.S. Permit values increase $10 million The total value of building permits in Lethbridge for 1970 will likely exceed last year's figure by about $10 milLion.
