The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 31, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14-THB LETHSRIDQE MIRALD-ThumUy. January 31, I Czech defector studies diseases of cattle here I 1 I I One of Czechoslovakia's top animal disease researchers is now plying his profession in Lelhbridge after defecting to Canada. George Bohac is working in close association with virologist Colin Darcel at the federal Animal Diseases Research Institute, just west of the city. He is responsible for the diagnosis and research of virus-type disease, mainly in cattle. Dr. Bohac is now studying ways of establishing diagnostic procedures and methods to find causes of calf scours (diarrhoea) on particular farms. Scours is the main disease affecting new born calves, he says. It hits cattle in early spring and because he is just getting settled in Lethbridge, he feels he will only be able to do preliminary investigations this year. The long-range plan, designed to eradicate or control scours, includes several types of investigations. He plans to choose farms in Western Canada where calves have scoured for the first time, where scours repeat annually, where calves scour twice in a season, where vaccines were used successfully and where vaccines were used unsuccessfully. He says once this preliminary work is done, characteristics of the agents which cause scours will be more readily recognized. Proper treatment to prevent or eradicate the disease will then be possible. Dr. Bohac, 52. graduated from university in 1950 and continued with post- graduate study in pathology, microbiology, epidemiology and parasitology. For 10 years, he worked at the Foot and Mouth Researcher Dr. Bohac infects cells In fume cabinet Disease Institute in Terezin, Czechoslovakia. In 1967 he was commissioned by the Czechoslovakian govern- ment to establish a virus diagnostic service in Cuba. On his recommendation, a department of virology was established in Cuba to train personnel in virologicl procedures. While travelling from Cuba to Czechoslovakia in May, 1969, the airplane landed at Gander, Nfld. With his wife and two daughters, he was granted political asylum and in 1970, he gained landed immigrant status. In May, 1970, he started ig post-graduate study at the Ontario Veterinary College i-i; at the University of Guelph and finished his study in June, 1973. Jewel thief is jailed An Edmonton man was sentenced in provincial court Wednesday to three years in prison for theft of worth of rings and watches from a city jewelry store last week. Robert Charles Protheroe, 43, admitted to breaking a window of a store Jan. 21 and stealing the watches and rings. He was arrested the following day. Protheroe admitted having a lengthy record of criminal offences. In connection with the same case, a Lethbridge man pleaded not guilty to a charge of stolen property and was remanded in custody. Norman Richard Bengry, 316 15th St. S., will stand trial Feb. 7. A Lethbridge youth pleaded guilty in provincial court Wednesday to two charges of breaking and entering and was remanded to Feb. 19 for sentencing. Peter Herbert Overlander, 17, 826 27 St. N., admitted to being involved in the breaking and entering of two city residences in November. He was accompanied by two juveniles. Among goods stolen during the break-in were a radio, walkie-talkies, fishing equipment and a wallet. Overlander was released on his own recognizance. A 19-year-old city man pleaded guilty in provincial court Wednesday to giving police a false statement and was fined Timothy John Cranley, 1313 10th Ave. S., told a police officer his car had been involved in a hit and run accident Jan. 26. Further investigation showed that the car had struck a parking meter. A Fort Macleod youth convicted earlier for possession of hashish was fined in provincial court Wednesday for probation violation. Leslie Scott, 17, received a 21-day sentence and a fine Jan. 21 from a Fort Macleod provincial judge for the possession offence. It was his second such offence. Brewery workers get autonomy in Canada IONA 3-SPEED PORTABLE MIXER cord boater elector year guarantee Colors Avocado, Harvest Gold, or.White. Priced at Call HMJMWirtl 327-5707 DOWNTOWN Canadian locals of the International Union of United Brewery Workers have gained autonomy within Canada, they claim. At a Winnipeg convention, the constitution of the UBW was amended to allow the locals within Canada, controlling members, to set their own rules and regulations. Jim Pickles, president of Local 245 of United Brewery and Distillery Workers in Lethbridge, says the continuing UBW union has retained all bargaining rights and assets and intends to continue to organize within the main stream of Canadian labor. A dispute erupted at a convention in Cincinnati, Ohio, last November when the International Union of United Brewery Workers voted to take its members into the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.

Delegates representing the Canadian members travelled to Toronto to organize an interim operating framework. At Winnipeg, the UBW members unanimously approved amendments which will allow the Canadian locals to operate autonomously. The members elected officers, boards and other officials to replace those who joined the ranks of the Teamsters. Mr. Pickles says all locals now hold separate contracts with employers throughout Canada. Involved in Lethbridge are 115 employees at Sicks Lethbridge Brewery and 56 employees at Palliser Distillers Ltd. Mr. Pickles said the new arrangement means if another UBW local in Canada goes on strike, none of the Lethbridge locals will be directly affected. He says financial and moral support would be provided by the Lethbridge local but no sympathy strikes would be staged. Dennis Starner, president of the distillery branch of Local 245 in Lethbridge said employees at the distillery hojd a different contract than the brewery workers. Even if the brewery workers in Lethbridge were to go on strike, the distillery workers would continue to work. A review Performance was not all wobble By PAT ORCHARD Herald Staff Writer The fourth of the University Concert Series took place at the Yates Memorial Centre Wednesday evening before a sparse audience of less than a hundred persons. Sherrill Demarco, a coloratura soprano, and Thelma O'Neill, a pianist, both from Alberta College, Edmonton, open- ed the recital with a series of unjustly neglected Mozart arias, some from his incomplete operas such as Ezio and Zaide, others of a more religious nature, such as the Lenten motet, which was the best of this particular group. Miss Demarco proved to be a bright, somewhat sophisticated soprano, who belted everything out with a good deal of wobble. For anyone who, like myself, finds a wide vibrato trying, especially in Mozart, these songs were rather painful. One could not really distinguish between trills at the end of arias such as Dove sono, and the allegedly sustained notes surrounding them, all of them gritty and vibrato. Both in these, and in the songs by Richard Strauss, the soloist appeared at times to be ill at ease, with a curious effect somewhat reminiscent of old-fashioned accoustic phonograph records, played slightly off speed. In contrast, the next group of songs by the French composer Ppulenc was skillfully, idiomatically performed by a singer with a lively and lyrical feeling for the music. Many performers sneer at the sentimentality of this com- poser's vocal works, yet the ethereal manner with which the ar- tist floated her high notes was amazing. Similarly, she iden- tified herself with each mood, from tenderness to humour, sing- ing with a real understanding of the song's simplicity. The next group was by the Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. Miss Demarco seemed to enjoy her essays into Spanish songs as some kind of holiday from her usual repertoire. She performed these pieces with great ease and just the right touch of humour. The way with which the accompaniment reflected the emotions of the words was fascinating, as our soprano was splendidly partnered by her accompanist. The evening concluded with Gounod's L'Hirondelle, in which Miss Demarco gave a display of coloratura vocal pyrotechnics which nevertheless fell short of the desired effect. A special word of praise to Miss Thelma O'Neill, upon whom several of the songs performed placed heavy demands. She was splendid throughout the recital.

K7-M1I Fording, union have stories of violence By THE CANADIAN PRESS ELKFORD, B.C. Three trucks, loaded with propane tanks, roll out of the mountain darkness and stop short of the picket lines. The drivers race their engines, drop their transmissions into low gear with an audible clunk, and charge straight at the company gates. The picketers jump and dive out of the way. One is hit by the lead truck, is knocked a few feet in the air, and falls. The company gates close behind the trucks. The men on the picket line gather around their fallen friend, whose leg hurts. That is the story the union men are telling about the steelworkers' strike against the Fording Coal Co. Mine at Elkford, 25 miles north of Sparwood in the Crowsnest Pass. In case it's not on your map, Sparwood is near Fernie, the town whose board of trade wants the area to secede from British Columbia and join Alberta. The other story also takes place on the same night, Jan. 24, on the road between the Elkford strip mine in the Elk River Valley and Sparwood. Three trucks, their load of propane tanks disposed of, stop at the bottom of a snowy hill to attach chains to their tires. Suddenly, a group of men come running out of the darkness. They smash all the windows and ask the drivers if their insurance is paid up. One of the drivers receives a cut to his face. Both stories may be true, or neither. But that's the kind of strike that started at midnight, New Year's Eve. The 600 men of the United Steelworkers of America, Local 7884, dropped their tools at the Fording coal subsidiary of Cominco Ltd., after four rounds of contract negotiations had collapsed. The two sides plan to resume their negotiations Feb. 5. Basic hourly wages for the mines now are The union wants a one-year contract with basic wages of The company has offered a two-year contract, with increases of 50 cents per hour the first year and 37.5 cents in the second. Also unresolved are vacation schedules, posting of open jobs, seniority rating, and union welfare contributions. The Jan. 24 incidents Truck kills 5-year-old BELLEVUE (CNP Bureau) Randal Genio Truant, five- year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. John Truant of Bellevue, died in the Foothills Hospital at Calgary at p.m. Wednesday from injuries suffered in a road mishap here Wednesday afternoon. The boy was struck by a half-ton truck at about 2 p.m. after his mother stopped her truck to let him cross the highway. The accident happened at a Highway 3 intersection at Maple Leaf, the east end of Bellevue. Mrs. Truant stopped her half-ton facing south. The boy ran south across the highway, into the path of an eastbound half-ton truck driven by Joseph Allan Pozzi. 19, of Bellevue. The boy was taken to the Crowsnest Pass General Hospital and then transferred to Calgary. RCMP are investigating. Coroner F. S. Radford is undecided concerning an inquest.

The company and the union had earlier agreed that passes to cross picket lines would be issued by the union. But the propane to keep electrical equipment at the site dry was delivered by non-union trucks, including one rented from Calgary's Economy Carriers Ltd. Mine manager Oscar John- son's version is that the trucks "suffered substantial damage from illegal actions." Union spokesman Lome Ryder's version is that the man who was knocked over by the truck is still limping. Both say they don't know of the other's story. Sparwood RCMP Sgt. Terry Kushniruk says some trucks were damaged on the night of Jan. 24 and a driver from Calgary, Ken Howden, was slightly cut in the fact. He says neither party has pressed charges against the other. Mr. Johnson hopes the Feb. 5 talks would lead to a settlement, but it's "anybody's guess" how much progress could be made. Day mental care program sought A day therapy program, for mental patients not needing the full-time supervision of a hospital, is being developed in Lethbridge. A committee, comprised of 14 persons representing various health services, has drafted a "rough proposal" which will form the foundation of a final proposal to be presented to the provincial government. Ed Benning, regional director of Alberta Mental Health Services and chairman of the committee, says the day therapy program is a needed service. "Services available for these people are very scarce and I can see this program being an alternative to hospital he says. Day therapy would provide care for patients who require more intensive treatment than can be provided on an out-patient basis, but who do not require full-time supervision. The program would help patients from three "usual categories those in hospital who require additional treatment to get a discharge from hospital, those discharged but who require a ;follow-up program and those needing care as an alternative to hospital admission. A "key advantage" of the day program is it does not greatly disrupt the normal routines of a patient. The criteria for admission set down by the committee is that patients must be willing to participate and attend the- program regularly and show sufficient control so they are not a severe danger to tuemselves or others. The program will consider for admission all referrals. One-day-a-week referrals will be discussed by the director of the program and referring agencies which will include physicians, department of social service, hospitals, and departments of mental health. Through group interaction the program will offer the patient support, adaptive problem solving, socialization and modification of behaviour. Groups which may be implemented include an exercise group, which would help release tension and encourage physical expression; a projective group which would make use of creative materials to express feelings; a hobby group, a homemaking group and recreation group. Participants would be in the program for periods ranging to "several months" from "a few weeks." Stabbing case set over A 65-year-old city man has been remanded .in custody without plea to Feb. 7u on a charge of wounding with in- tent in connection with the stabbing Wednesday of a 70- year-old man. Harry Menzak was arrested after police investigated a reported stabbing at a room- ing house at 613 5th St. S. Lome Stedman was taken to St. Michael's Hospital with stab wounds to the abdomen, chin, thumb and head. His wounds are not serious, the examining doctor said.
