Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 29, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, January 29, 1975 GRAIN AUTHORITY TO SPEAK THURSDAY Circular to schools The grain industry comes under the quizzical eye of the Southern Alberta Council of Public Affairs Thursday at Ericksen's Restaurant when Bill Beaton of Vancouver is in the hot seat. Mr. Beaton, grain move- ment co ordinator for the Canadian Transport Com- mission, will discuss the con- tinuing demand for Canadian grain on the world market and how the Canadian transporta- tion system fits into the in- dustry. Some of the points to be covered by Mr. Beaton include: Is Canada's transportation system capable of meeting the delivery deadlines of foreign consumers? What is the present situa- tion in regard to rail aban- donment? How does the Crowsnest Rate structure affect Southern Alberta? Future plans for terminal or inland terminals on The Prairies.

By the time the Winter Games are over and some 800 Canadian athletes have left Lethbridge with gold, bronze and silver medals, Tom Martin will deserve a medal of his own. As medals boss for Games ceremonies, Mr. Martin is charged with the weighty duty of receiving, storing, distributing and awarding medals to victorious Games competitors. A city bank manager, Mr. Martin has a vault handy for storing 270 gold, 270 silver and 280 bronze medals being readied for shipment here from Pressed Metal Products in Vancouver. The medals have little face value, because they are made from an inexpensive alloy. But the real value of the medals is intangible. They cannot be replaced and, if all goes according to plan, the only way taget a gold, silver or bronze medal will be by athletic prowess. The medals, designed by Games official George Gemer of Lethbridge, include mentions of the Games, the year of the event, pictograms representing each of the 16 sports events, the Winter Games snowflake logos, an Olympic olive branch and the Alberta provin- cial crest. The Games society has ordered more medals than necessary, Mr. Martin explains, because ties will re- quire additional medals. For gymnastic events, he adds, the Games have ordered 36 sets of medals, although only 12 may be needed. The Games has also ordered more bronze medals than gold or silver because boxing events award bronzes to third and fourth place finishers. Each member of a victorious hockey team receives a medal, Mr. Martin continues, requiring Games of- ficials to lay in 19 of each medal.

"I am concerned about the negative implications about psychiatry given in the says Garry Rykee, regional director of mental health ser- vices for the Alberta health and social development department. He was referring to a. questionnaire on "psychiatric violations" headed "Citizens' Commission on Human At the bottom of the sheet it says the group is spon- sored by the .Church of Scien- tology. He said he received a copy from an upset parent. Public School Superinten- dent Bob Plaxton told The Herald he had not seen ths questionnaire. "At least we have authoriz- ed no such he added. Peter Palmer, public school psychologist, said he got a copy from a principal who received it. The questionnaire went to Galbraith School, he said, but he could not say if it went to other schools or not. Mr. Palmer said his concern, and probably that of other mental health professionals, is that the questionnaire appears to im- ply strong negative con- notations from the start.
