Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Commission requests power to taekle water pollution OTTAWA (CP) - The International Joint Commission asked the Canadian and U.S. governments Thursday for wide powers to tackle pollution in the lower Great Lakes and the international section of the St, Lawrence River. six- External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp tabled in the Commons a report of the man commission that he "shatters all precedents." "It deals with the most extensive water pollution study undertaken anywhere to date," 'Feed the Fuzz9 program COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Fraternities at Ohio State University have introduced a "Feed the Fuzz," pro- Postal service chief named WASHINGTON (AP) - Postmaster-General Winton Blount has been selected to head up the new U.S. postal service when the independent agency takes over operation of the post office department next July 1. Blount was to lose his cabinet status July 1 but was selected yesterday as head of the new postal service by the nine-member board of governors. He also will be chairman of the board. Blount's appointment is effective immediately. Under postal reform legislation adopted last year, the old pest office department will be abolished and replaced by the U.S. postal service, a semi-autonomous corporate-like agency which is intended to pay its own way. gram in an effort to improve student-police relations. The idea came from Purdue University, where a fraternity invited policemen to dinner. "A group of boys here thought the dinner invitation was a good idea," Alex Thomson, assistant dean of students for fraternity affairs, said. "We talked it' over with the police department and came up with the luncheon program." The 18 policemen who patrol the Ohio state area will be given free lunches at five fraternity houses in the next six weeks. If it improves relations, the program may be continued. Already, the idea appears to lie paying off. Beth students and police admit to fear and overreacting during c a m p u s disturbances last spring. Consumer prices in Sweden rose by 6.5 per cent during the first 11 months of 1970. LIVING WITH FEAR - Do you blanch at the light of a bug? Does a loud noise make you screamingly nervous? Maybe you're the one of the million and a half Canadian suffering from a phobia. Unreasonable fears practically immobilize victims. Many can barely venture from their homes. Most are bewildered and ashamed of their terror. But effective methods are being developed to treat these fears. In Your Lethbridge Herald Weekend Magazine said Mr. Sharp on tabling the 174-page document, culmination of an exhaustive six-year investigation carried out by the commission at the request of the two federal governments. The report recommends still new regulations to improve water quality standards in the lower lakes. Mr. Sharp told the House that a Canada-U.S. ministerial meeting on Great Lakes pollution, planned for later this year, will take decisions on concerted programs to achieve agreed water quality objectives. These programs will include a commitment to establish effective surveillance mechanisms. The commission finds that the waters concerned are being seriously polluted on both sides of the international boundary "to the detriment of both countries and to an extent which is causing injury to health and property." The report finds that a crash program to improve sewage treatment facilities is essential to halt the decline of lakes Erie and Ontario. PLANS COSTLY It estimates the cost of such a sewage treatment cleanup program in Canada at $211 million and in the U.S., at $1,373 million. The commission asks authority to co-ordinate, monitor and implement a n anti-pollution campaign. In line with this, it asks for power to establish international boards to assist it in cairying out its pollution control duties ar.d to give them whatever authority it deems appropriate. At present, the commission has no authority to deal with the problem. It can only investigate it under specific directive from the two federal governments. The 150-page report results from a mandate given the commission by Washington and Ottawa in 1964. Friday, January IS, 1971 - THE IETHBRIDGC HERALD - 21 Crown wins appeal in assault case EDMONTON (CP) - A man who originally received a $150 fine for assaulting a policeman was given a nine-month jail term when the Crown appealed the case. "Unless they (policemen) are protected while they are doing their duty, law enforcement will fail in this country," Mr. Justice J. M. Cairns said in sentencing William Rohfrietscb, 31. The crown was appealing the fine given Rohfrietsch in September after he attacked and beat Paul Vanderwounde, town constable in Sedgewick, after his car was stopped and searched for liquor. The court was told a number of bottles of liquor were found in the car and a fight started in which the policeman was bitten on the thigh and back arid his eye was poked at and his head banged against a car bumper. Resources study to be carried out EDMONTON (CP) - A study project to determine the most beneficial alio cation of resources in the foothills region of Alberta will be carried out by the federal and provincial government, it was announced here. Using natural watersheds as the units of analysis, the planners will draft guidelines which will be used by all interested agencies to govern their use of resources in the area, Dr. J. D. Ross, provincial lands and forests minister, said in a news release. Natural resources and potential, for agriculture, industry and recreation will be considered in the study. The study is expected to be completed in 18 months.
