Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 6, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta ffb'irbecomes new home Progress evicts Bart Beaver Winnipeg (CP) Being forced out of your home in the dead of winter isn't a happy experience but for Burt the Beaver the story did have a happy ending. Bart, a 30-pound beaver fell victim two weeks ago to Manitoba Hydro's Nelson River Diversion Project at Jenpeg, 500 miles north of here. High water on the Nelson apparently washed the beaver from his dam and down a turbulent spillway near the Jenpeg construction site. He tumbled 15 feet into rough water, bobbed to the surface and climbed on an ice pack, said Murray Bond, a Hydro construction Inspector who witnessed the ordeal. "He was thoroughly stunned by the fall. But he looked rather pleased that he was still alive." Realizing Bart was "down on his Mr. Bond and several construction workers decided to try to help. They erected a make-shift shelter with logs and other materials, but Bart refused to leave his ice pack. "He'd come ashore periodically to look for said Mr. Bond in a telephone interview. "But most of the popular trees (a beaver's main diet) had been torn out during construction." The beaver refused to eat the cabbage and carrots put out for him so the workers cut down some populars from another area and brought them to Bart. Earlier this week, Bart decided he had had enough of conditioning on the ice pack. He moved into the general construction area and didn't seem to mind when a worker locked him in a heated shack. Eventually contact was made with Assiniboine Park Zoo officials who said they would be pleased to take in a homeless beaver, especially if it was a female. "We really didn't know whether it was a male or said Mr. Bond. "Nobody was brave enough to pick him up to find out." Monday, January 6, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 5 North Americans should consider reducing their food consumption KITCHENER, Ont. (CP) Dr. Richard Vosburgh, dean of the department of con- sumer and family affairs of the University of Guelph, says love is... being proud of her good judgment. the question of whether North America should cut down food consumption is no longer im- portant or valid. Dr. Vosburgh, who recently saw starvation during a two- week trip to Ghana, said in an interview the real questions are when North America should reduce consumption and by how much. "North America has a standard of living that is just he said. "I used to be able to say that, know it, believe it and not have the emotional charge associated with it since I've been to Africa." Dr. Vosburgh's expertise is in world food process of quickly and ef- ficiently moving food supplies from one area to another. One suggested solution to the food shortage has been a world food bank into which countries would deposit sur- plus food for withdrawal by hungry countries. Part of the problem could be solved by improved storage and distribution of food. "The last couple of gener- ations have seen a tremen- dous emphasis on food produc- tion and very little on dis- Dr. Vosburgh said. One of the many church agencies trying to fight the shortage is the Mennonite Central Committee of Akron, Pa. The .committee director, Dr. Peter Dyck, said North Americans will have to get by with less food and probably spend more for what they have. Dr. Dyck recently was awarded an honorary doctor of laws degree from the University of Waterloo for more than 30 years service in world relief. The committee was created irt 1920 as a response to famine in the Ukraine following war, revolution and a severe drought. Dr. Dyck now is directing the committee's attempts to improve the agricultural abilities of Third World countries. "There were good farmers in the couldn't they put seeds Dr: Dyck said. "We were sensible enough to realize that it was going to rain again." But the Third World today knows little of advanced agri- cultural techniques. "An agriculturalist today is .almost worth his weight in he has a degree and is willing to get dirt under his Dr. Dyck said. FAST EFFICIENT SERVICE CAPITOL FURNITURE and CARPETS LTD.
