Banff pool water cooler BANFF (CP) - Bathers in the Upper Hot Springs pool in Banff National Park have been getting cooler water in the last few weeks. Temperatures have dropped as much as 12 degrees from the usual pool temperature of 100 degress, said park superintendent Steve Kun. The hot springs normally produce 172,000 gallons daily in the summer at' a temperature of 114 degrees, but a drought last winter has reduced the volume, he said. The smaller amount of water cools more quickly in the air. Until the flow increases again, the park has placed a cover over the "spray pool" where the water emerge in an attempt to maintain the pool temperatures. By PAUL GESSELL EDMONTON (CP) - "To call a private investigator a private eye is like calling a policeman a pig," says an ex-policeman, now in business for himself. He says the city's private investigators, "not to be called private detectives," are striving to create a professional air for themselves. "We don't just peek through key-holes and chase wayward husbands." He is also anxious to knock down the stereotyped image he feels many people have about members of his profession. "It's not at all like it is on television," he said in an interview. The rough-tough guys portrayed on television live only in the fertile minds of writers. Of three city investigators interviewed - none said there was much violence in his job. While they all could cite cases when physical violence occurred, it was infrequent, and none carried a gun. One of the investigators car- Calgary mental health agencies in trouble CALGARY (CP) - Financial difficulties could force several rehabilita tive and mental health agencies in the city to close, says Dr. Keith Pearce, chairman of the Calgary and Region Mental Health Planning Council. Discussions between the agencies began several weeks ago, he said, and if they cannot find a common solution "they will all suffer and one or more of them could go under." Agency representatives are scheduled to meet with Social Develop ment Minister Ray Speaker later this week to discuss government grants and the most effective way of distributing and spending money. Dr. Pearce said Mr. Speaker and Health Minister James Henderson indicated this week that allotments for the agencies would not be increased during 1971 from the amounts last year. FUNERAL WEASEL FAT - Funeral service for Gerald Weasel Fat, beloved son of Fred Weasel Fat of the Blood Indian Reserve who died Thursday, Dec. 31, 1970, at the age of 16 years, was held at 11 a.m. Tuesday in St. Paul's Anglican Church.

Eden's Funeral Home Ltd., Fort Maclcott, was in charge of the arrangements. ries a flashlight, because it is much more useful as a weapon than a billy. BRAINS BEFORE FISTS "Investigators must use brains, not fists or pistols," said one of those interviewed, a former Scotland Yard detective. "They must have a good education." The three investigators, all exwpolicemen, said thcA- previous training was an asset to their job. In order to be a good investigator they said police experience was a must, "because then you know what it's like on both sides." "But it can be bad being a policeman beforehand," one said, "as you get used to protection of a uniform and badge." Methods of investigation varied. Two of the men said they use some "bugging' devices. Telephone tapping was taboo, although one said there probably were agencies using this device. Evidence from telephone tapping is inadmissable in court, so such information can only be used for leads to further research, said one. Good contacts are considered an important asset in being a good investigator, just as they are in being a top-notch policeman. GET THEIR MAN The three said more people are making use of their services. "There are more divorces and thefts now than in the past. Lawyers are big customers of the investigation agencies. "We will expand in that direction if we can keep the business on a high level,' said one referring to investigators who give the profession a bad name. "Many lawyers have stereotyped us as sleazy people, and we're trying to fight that." The men all liked their work because of the challenge and the variety of jobs they are called upon to do. They work for large companies to find out where aid how money is being lost, especially when employee theft is suspected. FLAPS DOWN-The morn. Ing - after feeling seems to have this bloodhound down.
