Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, July 5, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HfRAW Development will boost population Tourist town may become nuclear power centre PORT ELGIN, Out. (CP) This western Ontario tourist town may be coming a dormi- tory for a huge nuclear power development, 15 miles to the southwest on Lake Huron. The effects of the Bruce Nu- clear Power Development are already being felt as many of its employees have moved here. Much of the development's payroll of more than a week has poured into the tills of merchants here and in Kincar- dine, 25 miles to the southwest. The million heavy water and nuclear generating plant, being built jointly by At- omic Energy of Canada Ltd. and Ontario Hydro, will have a work force of about in three to four years. A population study indicates: that about 44 per cent of popula- tion growth attributable-to the nucisar development will take place in this town, 25 miles southwest of Owen Sound. The influx of new residents will re- sult in a near doubling of the 1966 population of by mid- 1972. However many residents fear the prosperty will bring prob- lems, signs of which are al- ready beginning to appear. The flow of traffic through the main street has increased; parking space is at a premium, schools are overcrowded; rents have climbed and the tax rate has been pushed higher by de- mands for increased services. There is concern that the Priest to combine clowning TORONTO (CP) "Bring- ing laughter and joy to people is God's says a Raman Catholic priest who has a new act as North America's first "clown for Christ." Rev. John E. Naus, 46, a Jesuit, is professor of philoso- phy at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wis. Since he was a youngster, he's been in- terested in circus clowning and this summer he'll com- bine clowning with the priest- hood. As Tumbleweed the clam, Father Naus has been invited to take part in the "largest circus ever" at the Canadian National Exhibition grand- stand show here Sept. 1-6. The priest-clown will also go on tour with The Circus Kirk, a Lutheran-sponsored group made up of about 30 high school and college students who express their Christianity in this way. He also plans to offer his services to children's hospi- tals, day-care centres and similiar institutions through- out the year when time off from teaching and counselling allows. The clown act is no gim- mick, Father Naus said. "It's part of the response the church must make to today's challenge to make Christ a meaningful figure to young people today." Because young people today can readily empathize with the clown figure, Father Naus believes this can be a real bridge to communicating the meaning of Christ's death and resurrection. He compares the role of the circus clown, who makes peo- ple realize that despite their troubles they can laugh and feel glad, with that of the priest who brings the joy of Christ to troubled souls. Speaking of the relation be- tween sorrow and joy in his clowning, he says; "Of the greatest comedians, many have come from the two groups that have suffered the and blacks. While they can't forget the sorrow around them, they can always find joy in life." Mercury poison hits B.C. halibut VANCOUVER (CP) Mer- cury sampling tests on hali- but landed in British Columbia ports indicate that about 000 pounds of this season's catch will have an excess con- centration of the poisonous ele- ment. Fish with a concentration of more than 0.5 parts per million of mercury are held off the market pending further tests of their fitness as food. The estimate was given here by regional fisheries director W. R. Hourston following a re- port from Seattle that U.S. fish ermen are throwing back hali- but of more than 125 pounds because the bigger fish show an excessive concentration. There is no throwback pro- gram in Canada because of the extensive sampling program. Little work for weapon detector TORONTO (CP) Only one weapon has been found at To- ronto International Airport since a weapon detector went into operation last November. However, officials feel the detector has a psychological ef- fect. "It's a psychological weapon mure than said K. A. Hoover, passenger service man- ager for Air Canada, which in- stalled the detector. Staff Sergeant Jack Mac- Donald of the RCMP airport headquarters said the one gun found was discovered in a wastepaper basket. He added there was no real evidence, however, connecting the gun with spot-checks by the ma- chine Mr. Hoover admitted a per- sonal search was needed to be 300 per cent sure. "But signs are posted warning of checks passengers on selected flights are told when a search is in effect so people aren't likely to try to carry weapons Uirough." VACATIONS PLANNED JERUSALEM (AP) The National Insurance Institute is giving Israeli mothers of six or more children two-week vacations away from diapers and dishes at the Mediterran- ean resort town of Herzlla. Canadian fishermen are com- pensated by the government for fish that are condemned. Government scientists are an- alyzing 40 samples a day from larga fish which are suspect, Mr. Hourston said. Smaller fish are not subject to the buildup which occ u r s through the years in tissues of halibut which are exposed to mercury in the sea water. Some halibut live up to 35 years and grow to a weight of 500 pounds. Most large halibut come from area 3, which comprises the Gulf of Alaska. Testing so far indicates no problems even with large fish caught in that area. However, approximately three per cent of the large hali- but (more than 100 pounds) caught in area 2 off south- east Alaska and the B.C. and northern U.S. coast show mercury in excess of the 0.5 fi- gure established by U.S. and Canadian authorities as the safe level. This would amount to about pounds of the 56 million pounds anticipated as this year's total catch by Canadian and U.S. halibuters and 53 per cent of the catch was made by Canadians last year. Newspapers hike price LONDON (CP) Three na- tional morning newspapers have announced price increases to take effect Monday. A fourth may follow suit later this year. The Daily Mail and The Sun will increase prices to three pence (7.5 cents) from 2'i pence and the Daily Telegraph will rise to four pence (10 cents) from three pence. The rises follow an increase to three pence in June by The Daily Express. There has been speculation that the Daily Mirror will in- crease its price to three pence from 214 pence later in the year to counter rising costs. Hussein to visit CAIRO (Rcutcr) King Hus- sein of Jordan is expected to visit Cairo later this month for talks with Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, the authoritative newspaper Al Ahram reported today. No date was given. imirH trprte, for years the life- blood of the community, could ici1. Siome fear that if tourists find cottages they once rented are now occupied year-round by workers from the nuclear pro- ject they may go elsewhere and never return. However Ray Fenton, presi- dent of the Chamber of Com- merce, said he feels that once there are enough new housing units the workers will not be strueted. satisfied to live in winterized But town officials are working cottages and these will again become available to tourists. Subdivisions and three 32-unit apartment blocks have been built but many cottages are still used as permanent residences. New stores have opened and old ones have been enlarged and a facelifting. A twin- auditorium theatre is under con- to control the growth. Mayor Bud Wilson, a cabinet- maker, has fought for strict control over planning. The town has imposed a fee of for each home built to help pay for services. H o w c v s r, William Vander- burg, manager of a realty firm, says too much land is being I taken for housing and not enough set aside for playground use. He also says Ontario Hydro and the Ontario government should do more to reimburse the town for the cost of expan- sion. Ontario Hydro is contributing million over 10 years to Bruce County to help defray the extra costs. Port Elgin received last year. Tire nuclear development re- sponsible for changing the face of this town sprawls across acres. The centre of it is a 3.2 million kilowatt power station, a large heavy-water production plant and an auxiliary sleam plant, all of which are under construction. The site also houses the exist- ing Douglas Point prototype nu- clear generator, Canada's first full-scale nuclear station. The project is the reason there is no unemployment here, but despite such benefits there are those who fear the commun- ity has lost its small-town tran- quilly and neighborliness. "It's not the town we used la know." says Mrs. Aimer Bolan- der, whose bakery is a street landmark. YES, WE TAKE GRAIN IN TRADE 22" Accucolor Color Console Powerful volt color chassis.
