The revised program introduces a new seven cent definitive stamp, a new eight cent commemorative stamp and changes in the 1974 Olympics stamps series. The number of commemorative stamps will be reduced to 33 from the 45 originally planned. The seven cent definitive stamp will feature the late Louis St. Laurent, Prime Minister of Canada from 1948 to 1957. The stamp will be issued April 8. An eight cent commemorative stamp honoring William Hamilton Merrit on the 150th anniversary of his founding of the Welland Canal will be issued Nov. 29. The Post Office will issue three Olympic semi-postal stamps, instead of 24 as announced earlier. These will be issued April 17. These stamps will carry a surcharge which will go to help support the 1976 Olympics.

United Way nears deadline The Lethbridge United Way has collected still short of the figure it hoped to raise during the annual drive. Publicity chairman Ron Sakamoto said this morning the follow up of firms which have not contributed has been slow to bring returns with firms reporting for various reasons they will not be giving to the campaign. The canvas was extended until the end of this month to bring the United Way closer to its objective. United Way board of directors will decide at a meeting Feb. 5 whether to pursue the drive for funds any further, said Mr. Sakamoto. It is realistic to expect the figure may mount to he said. The annual drive kicked off Sept. 24 with a goal of about more than was collected during the last campaign.

McColl was there, and so was McCallum, From miles a'aroun' the Scots did come, All for some haggis an' a wee bit of Burns. About 250 persons came to the local Legion Memorial Hall Saturday for some haggis and A Nicht wi" Burns spon- sored by the General Stewart Pipe Band. Morris MacFarlane, dress- ed in the green tartan of the MacFarlane clan, was toast- master for the evening and gave the address to the haggis, one of Scotland's national foods. Haggis is made with the lungs and heart of a sheep and other ingredients and is cook- ed in the stomach bag of a sheep. Although it sounds ghastly it is quite tasty with a flavor and texture resembling turkey dressing. Some of the other items on the menu were: McGregor's Blood (tomato laich cuts o' roastit beef, wee green igins (small green chappit tatties (mashed scones and shortbread. The haggis was piped in by Pipe Major John Gilchrist and the haggis bearer was Drum Major Archie Muirhead. The haggis was escorted by Peter Fortune and Chris Norton. Ian Paterson was the piper to the head table. Selkirk grace was said by Angus Masson and Alistair Gilchrist gave the toast to the Queen. Dr. Alan Dyer toasting the immortal memory of Rabbie Burns, Scotland's national poet, said it's very important to keep his memory alive today. "It is the very human qual- ities we associate with Robert Burns and his works, it is the very mood and spirit of his times which we need today to face the problems of our cen- Dr. Dyer said. These Burns' qualities are a genuine love for mankind, a respect for naturre and natural beauty and a reliance upon that well-tried, plain old- fashioned common sense." Rabbie Burns was also one of England's greatest songwriters having composed such classics as Ault Lang Syne. Jack Whyte a Calgary entertainer, sang a few of Burns' songs. In his toast to Bonnie Scotland; Ernest Mardon said he had been back to Scotland 13 times since he left it 20 years ago. "Why? To, as it were, recharge my batteries ob- tain a better perspective on life ahd to gain an increased knowledge of what is really important. It is not material things or amassing the almighty dollar. It's being true to one's heritage, one's family and to know why we are here." One of the highlights of the evening was Mr. Whyte's toast to Canada, the adopted land. Oh Rab! Oh Rab! could you but see This mighty and superb country, I think you muse maun cowen her heid, Sac great be your bardic need To capture with an image terse, SAFETY CONTAINERS CAN WEAR OUT This new year we are most hopeful that deaths due to accidental taking of medi- cines by small children will be drastically reduced. The one major reason for this hope is the increasingly widespread use of the new safety containers for most med- icines. But, along with this major development m pharmaceutical packaging comes a new danger. A false sense of security that the safety cap will automatically stop accidents. But, after prolonged use the closure mechanism on the safety tops can wear out. Be aware of this and do not reuse these containers. GEORGE ROD My... The trouble with telling a good story is that it always reminds the other fellow of a dull one. DRAFFIN'S DISPENSARY AND DOWNTOWN FREE CITY WIDE DELIVERY H OtORge RODNEY wi sm si. s. Drthwr A different scene in every verse For here's a country that demands Frae the poet's hand This is one of 18 stanzas of a poem Mr. Whyte used in the toast He wrote this poem last November especially for Lethbridge's Rabbie Burns supper. George Brown, toasting the lassies, used a direct quota- tion of Rabbie Burns to show how the bard felt toward the bonnie girls of Scotland. .1 never had the least thought or inclination of turn- ing poet till I once got heartily in love, and then rhyme and song were, in a manner, the spontaneous language of my heart In replying to the toast to the lassies Muriel Matheson told the men in the audieence that for thousands of years women had been witnesses to the mainstream of activities. This isn't so today, she said. Mrs. Matheson said she wasn't a woman's libber but she did believe in equal rights for women. 8 abattoirs join inspection plan Lethbridge and Fort Macleod abattoirs have been accepted under the Alberta meat inspection program. In the eight months the program has been in operation, eight abattoirs have been accepted and seven more are expected to join before the end of the fiscal year. Other abattoirs that have been accepted are in Sangudo, Edmonton, Vermilion, Red Deer, Rimby and Olds. Meat that has been slaughtered in an abattoir un- der the program, and that has been approved by an inspec- tor, can be sold anywhere in the province. However, meat that is destined for sale out- side the province and outside Canada must be inspected by a federal government meat inspector One of the advantages of the program is abattoir operators are relieved of the respon- sibility of condemning and removing unfit portions of meat from animal carcasses. The field service branch of the provincial veterinary ser- vices division embarked upon the inspection program when the Alberta Legislature pass- ed the Meat Inspection Act in late 1972. It is expected all small abattoirs in the province will be participating in the program within the next five years. According to Dr. G. W. Summers, supervisor of meat hygiene with the veterinary services division, abattoir operators must have plant facilities that meet a minimum standard of construction before they can join the program. They also must maintain a high degree of sanitation and operating ef- ficiency. Although construction stan- dards are not as high as those for large packing plants, the level of sanitation and quality of inspection in these small plants must meet the same high standards as those set for the large plants by the federal government. Dr Summers says in some cases inspection is carried out by inspectors who have a great deal of training and ex- ferience iu meat inspection, n other, it is done by veterinarians who have received special training in this field Because of their respon- sibility for public health, all medical health officers have been appointed inspectors un- der the program. Provincial health units are directly in- volved with the water supply to the various plants, the health and cleanliness of the employees in the abattoir as well as for ensuring that the meat products are clean and properly handled after they leave the plant. Once an abattoir has been accepted under the program, all the animals slaughtered on the premises are inspected, regardless of whether they have been customs killed or the carcasses are intended for resale.
