Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta SHE TRIMMED DOWN - Mrs. Jerry Vert, a Lloyd' minster area farmer's wife, and mother of five, one* weighed 376 pounds. She lost the amazing total of 222 pounds over a three-year period after an umusual operation at the University Hospital in Edmonton. She now goes swimming and horseback riding and eats as much as she likes. Russian request bigger machine By GERRY SUTTON CALGARY (CP) - Foremost Tracked Vehicles Ltd. manufactures one of the largest all-terrain machines in the world, but the Soviet Union wants one twice as big. W. Bruce Nodwell, founder of the Calgary-based company and vice-president of marketing, "They want a vehicle with a 60 or 70-ton capability for laying � 10-foot diameter pipe. ... We have presented them with a proposal on a 60-ton carrier." Russian business in the last three years has ended the company's feast-or-famine cycle of production. "This company was built because of the local market in Western Canada and the North, Mr. Nodwell said. "Our main customer has always been the oil industry, but it has always been a cycling thing to us. We have a rush where we can hardly fill the demand, then we'll have a slack period where nothing is setting, depending on how the industry is going. "These cycles were really Chaplain ior V.S. deserters TORONTO (CP) - An American minister who was Episcopal chaplain at Michigan State University for 10 years has arrived here to be chaplain to American draft dodgers and deserters. "Campus denominational work is dead and I wanted to move into a meaningful area," Rev. Robert Gardner said in an interview. "I felt I could be of help with draft-dodgers up here so I wrote to the Anglican Church of Canada last May to see if such a position could be set up." The World Council of Churches, which provides $70,000 annually to such programs for U.S. draft-dodgers in Canada, will provide $26,000 to Mr. Gardner, including a $10,000 salary. "I'm here to bridge the gap between the American draft-dodgers, the church and the aid groups," said the 50-year-old father of four. Estimates of the number of American draft-dodgers and deserters in Canada range from 45,000 to 100,000. Groups involved in helping such Americans say the number of persons coming to Canada has dropped sharply, and most of the exiles in 1070 were deserters rather than draft-dodgers. A spokesman for the Anti-Draft Program here attributed the drop partly to the high unemployment situation in Canada. However, an increase in entries is expected later this month when the draft call if made, the official Mid,, hurting ... by getting some business with the Russians we're able to steady things out a bit." LANDS TWO CONTRACTS The latest Russian deal was announced last October when Foremost landed two contracts for more than $9 million from Moscow government agendes. The first involved SS vehicles, 30 of which are the company's Husky Eight, one of the world's largest machines with a toad capacity of more than 30 tons. The second included 12 Husky Six models with a capacity of more than 20 tons. Foremost had $1 million pacta with the Russians in 1968 and 1969 and 52 of the company's vehicles now operate in the Soviet Union. A private company with four Calgary shareholders, including President Jack Nodwell, Bruce's son, Foremost says the latest transaction is the largest ever by a Canadian manufac turer to Russian agencies. The Russian contract was negotiated by Jack Nodwell who helped start Foremost in 196S. The vehicles, assembled and designed at Foremost, all will be delivered within two years to the Soviet Union, mainly for work in the Siberian oil fields. "The only thing we really make here are the main frames." says Bruce Nodwell SENDS BIDS OUT "We operate on a sub-contract basis by designing everything here, send it out for a bid. then get the components made outside plants." Parts for the vehicles come from the United States, Edmonton, Vancouver and southern Al berta companies. Because of the growing mar ket for tracked vehicles, Foremost's staff increased to 100 from seven and forced the com-pany to move to a new plaint to 1967. Bruce Nodwell pioneere tracked vehicles for the oil L dustry in 1953 with his own com pany. After a merger he broke away in 1965 to be Ms own boss again with a new company. The federal government recognized his efforts last year and awarded him Canada's Medal of Service for "excellence in all fields of endeavor in Canadian life." Among Foremost's designs are a spider vehicle, a small machine which patrols ski slopes, and a logger which can be used almost anywhere. Some of the company's products are so specialized, they haven't bothered to attach names to them all.
