Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 12, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta M THI UTHMIDOI HERALD ianunry 11, Mariner 9 rewriting textbooks on Mars PASADENA, Calif. (AP) Mariner B is rewriting the text- books on Mars. This is dw assessment of sci. entists studying the latest pic- Psychiatrist awarded EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta government has given a British educated psychiatrist more than to settle a dispute that began when he was dismissed last March. Dr. John Jenkins, a staff psychiatrist at the Alberta Hos- pital in Oliver, was dismissed on grounds his performance of duties was less than satisfac- tory. A employee, he challenged the dismissal and it was taken up by the public service commission. He declined an offer of six months salary and continued to live in a house near the hospi- tal, .refusing to hand over the keys until the matter was set- tled. The government said Tues- day Dr. Jenkins does not meet an the requirements for his job. He was hired in the mid- 1960s when lower standards were acceptable because of a shortage of psychiatrists. He resigned Dec.. 31 and has been awarded nine months sal- ary, a total of tures sent to earth by the tiny United States spacecraft from its orbit around Hie intriguing planet. The Mars emerging from the Mariner data is a planet, that, geologically speaking, quite re- cently -.vos a living, breathing, evolving body. Unlike the moon, which was born almost five billion years ago then quickly died in a fiery upheaval, Mars had a long life, scientists have decided. In fact, some Mariner scientists say.. Mars still might be stirring in- ternally, still undergoing geo- logic evolution. "Clearly, Mars has presently active surface process whereas before we weicu'l sure whether we were looking at a fossil surface like the moon." said Dr. Bruce Murray of the California Institute of Technol- ogy. Mariner 9 scientists at Cal- tech's Jet Propulsion Labora- tory here where the spacecraft is being controlled don't agree on the interpretation of every photograph Marine's two televi- sion cameras return. MAY HAVE FIERY CENTRE But the consensus is that: volcanoes once burned over the planet, belching smoke and gas and playing a prominent role in shaping Mars. The fires, perhaps heavily banked by time, still may burn deep within Mars, further driv- ing geological forces. erosibnal forces have been at work, shaping some re- gions in manners strikingly sim- ilar to earth.

More alive, youthful appearing and active. indications of erosion by such as winds, and erosion by liquid, such as flowing water. But scientists hasten to add they have little data about what caused the erosion. dust storms may rage over certain regions of Mars and the entire planet may be dustier than a half-ceu tury of careful telescope observ aHon from earth indicated. The scientists are unanimous on one point: The most exciting aspect of the Mariner 9 mission isn't what the photographs are GUNNERS AT WORK Royal Canadian Horse Artil- lery gunners, using a 105-millimetre howitzer, fire on a potential avalanche in the Rogers Pass area of British Columbia.

"YOUR HOME HARMONY CENTRE" Phone 327-8079 confirming about Mars, but the now mysteries that are being opened. Mars, they are finding, is much more diverse than ex- pected. More such photographs were released Tuesday by JPL offi- cials. More and more revealing photographs are being obtained now that a haze that has ob- scured the planet since Mariner 9 went into orbit Nov. 13 lift- ing. PITS SHOW IN PICTURE The pictures Tuesday showed B series of strange pits and hol- lows, some about two miles across, located about 500 miles from the Martian south pole. "The process that might du- plicate this type of pitted topog- raphy on earth is so out o! phase with what we've thought about Mars that it's just amaz- said Dr. Robert Dart, a Oaltech geologist. "It means there are some very unusual conditions or events on Mais." Dr. Carl Sagan, a Cornell Uni- versity astronomer, is intrigued by dark splotches or "ink blots" that have shown up in areas that didn't have the blotches two years ago when Mariner 6 and 7 flew by Mars snapping pictures. "They appear to be some in- trinsic change in surface albedo he said. "So the idea that they're connected with changes on the surface of Mars Isn't a big extrapolation. But what they are and what is caus- ing them is Hie exciting ques- tion." Scientists hope such photo- graphs will answer the dec- ades-old mystery of what causes the seasonal "wave of darken- ing" on darkening that spreads over the planet and seems connected with the sea- son. Stanfield makes pitch for Quebec HALIFAX (CP) Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield said Tuesday he is confident the peo- ple of Quebec will recognize the improved fortunes of his party nationally and consider it a via- ble alternative to the Liberals in the next election. Noting that polls Indicate Ms party is only four percentage points behind the government across- the country, Mr. Stan- field told a. news conference that the Conservatives are prob- ably ahead of the Liberals out- side of Quebec. "I don't think Quebec has taken UK Conservative party too seriously because we were well down across the he said. The recent upsurge in support for -Hie PCs "will be recognized in Quebec and the people will take us seriously as an alternative to the Liberals." He said the party was not ac- tively searching for a Quebec lieutenant, but wanted candi- dates who could be regarded as spokesmen for the party in the province. The difficult economic situa- tion in Quebec would also make people more receptive to change, he said. "I think if there is a spring election the job issue, the economic issue will be the big one in Quebec as in other parts of the country."
