This is the second phase of a plan by Holger Frandsen to provide low cost housing in Lethbridge under a federal housing scheme.

Mr. Frandsen had previously constructed 16 low-cost units under the experimental housing plan. Construction of the 24 units is expected to begin shortly. On another matter, the MPC refused permission to Dr. W. L. Mitson to construct a gro- cery store at 2004 Mayor Ma- grath Drive, because the pro- posed store was too close to a residential development on the next lot.

Box 938, tolhbridgo Phono 328-7411 Simon Fraser professor tells AIC meeting No place for 'amateurs' with pesticides By JIM WILSON Stalf Writer There was a time when bar- bers were amateur medical surgeons, operating on pa- tients with little or no knowl- edge of what they were doing. Today, says Dr. P. C. Oloffs, of the Simon Fraser University pestoloRy department in Burn- aby, B.C., most farmers are doing the same thing with amateur treatment of pests in their crops and livestock. "The time has come for the amateurs to be forced out of the pesticides field, just as many years ago the barbers were forced out of the medical science he told dele- gates to the annual Agricul- tural Pesticide Society meet- ing Wednesday. Dr. Oloffs said SFU is one of the few universities offer- ing a master's degree program specializing in peslology, which he expects to be an im- portant field in the near fu- ture. He visualized a system in which professional pestologists would diagnose the specific ail- ments of a farmer's crops or livestock, and then prescribe treatment, based on his spe- cial training. This would be similar, said to the system today which only licenced doctors are allowed to diagnose medi- cal problems of their patients, and only doa'.ors can prescribe drugs. Chemicals prescribed could only be bought from licenced dispensers, just as human drugs can only be bought on prescription from druggists. "Our increasingly complex systems and requirements for crop production and protec- tion require professionals who know what they're Dr. Oloffs said. "A few aphids in the field late in the year may under some circumstances justify spraying; under other circumstances it may be a dangerous and wasteful proce- dure. "Such answers can be given only by a qualified pestologist, and a farmer is not a qualified pestologist." He said there are too many incorrect diagnoses of pest problems being made by farm- ers and "instant experts" to- day, sometimes doing no harm, but usually either wast- ing tremendous quantities of potentially dangerous chemi- cals, or treating for pests which are not present and dan- gerous chemicals, or treating for pests which are not pres- ent and leaving those which are present to continue doing damage to crops. Four sentences in damage case HONORARY LIFE MEMBERSHIP R. E. Forbes, right, newly elected president of the Agricultural Institute of Canada, presents Alberta Lt.-Gov. Grant MacEwan with on Honorary Life Membership in the institute. AIC is the professional organization for the agrologists who ore active in all phases of the agricultural and food industry. The honorary membership is granted to non-members of the institute who have made significant contributions to Canadian agriculture. Dr. MacEwan held positions with the Universities of Saskatchewan and Manitoba, becoming the Dean of Agriculture at the University of Manitoba. Through the years he became widely known across Canada for public service, especially in judging livestock, writing, radio, lecturing and conducting P fairs and exhibitions. Garbage rules remain the same There will be no change in the operation of the city's sani- tary landfill as far as the av- erage citizen is concerned now that it has been taken over by Dispose All Services Ltd. The Calgary based firm, which took over the landfill 'Letlibridges' are found Mr. and Sirs. Lethbridge hove been found. At least they are pretty sure they've been found. Actually, they were never lost. It was just that a Mrs. Sadie Scott of Regina, who me', them in Hawaii and never learned their name, wanted to track them down. A letter from Mrs. ScoU was published in Wednesday's Her- ald. Thursday morning Mrs. Henry Hunter of 1320 17th St. S. phoned The Herald to say that she and her husband were very probably the mystery couple.

Private citizens will still be able to haul refuse to the site free of charge. Commercial refuse haulers will be charged 25 cents per cubic yard, the same rate charged by the city. The basic charge of SI.50 a month for gar- bage pick-up charged to resi- dential users will be collected by the city, which will continue to provide this service. The rate increase to SI.50 from went into effect July 1. Four Lethbridge district youtlis were sentenced in mag- istrate's court following the studying of their pre-sentencing reports by Judge L. W. Hudson. Court was told the four had been charged with four charges of wilful damage and one charge of public intoxication, resulting from a June 26 inci- dent in which the youths broke radio antennas from cars with a hatchet as they drove along the street. They pleaded guilty to the charges June 30. Louis Charles Hansen, of Wrentham wras fined for being publically intoxicated, for one charge of willful damage and was sentenced to one day for each of the three willful damage charges. Russel Vern Harker, also of Wrentham, was sentenced to 30 in jail with six months probation to follow. Gordon Ray Meyers, Wren- tham, and Michael Andrew Wil- son, Lethbridge, received sus- pended sentences and a one year probation order. Nightgown costs An Edmonton man was fined in Lethbridge magistrate's court when he was found guilty of shoplifting worth of mer- chandise from the Woolco De- partment Store. Court was told the charge resulted from a June 10 inci- dent when a store employee saw the man take the bottom part of a woman's night gown. In passing sentence Judge L. W. Hudson said he could not understand what prompts per- sons to steal. "They seem to take anything which is not fastened down."

PHONE 327-2852 The court ordered restitution for the damage caused by the youths to be paid as part of each sentence. Contributing charge brings jail John Paul Quiraiey of Onion Lake, S'ask., was sentenced to 45 days in jail following a study of his pre-sentencing re- port by Judge L. W. Hudson. Quinney, 22, pleaded guilty in Lethbridge magistrate's court June 30 to contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The charge resulted from a incident early in the morning of June 23 when Quinney and a 13-year-old girl were found to- gether in a local hotel room, registered as man and wife. Testimony revealed at no tune did the girl attempt to discourage Quinney. Under the Summary Convic- tions Act of Canada Quinney was not eligible for legal aid and he had no attorney. Con- tributing to the delinquency of a minor is a summary offense. Quinney's only defense was he had no reason to doubt the girl was not 18-years-old. However, government legis- lation, slowly being written in B.C. but nowhere else as of yet, must come into effect be- fore the system will work: "No one will spend six years be- coming a qualified professional pestologist if he's not going to able to get a job when he finishes." Dr. Oloffs criticized the cur- rent "extreme concern" over the potential extinction of some species of plants and ani- mals due to the activities of men. "Species come and go, and 95 per cent of all species which have ever existed are extinct he said. "They die off to leave room for new species to evolve that's why man himself has evolved." Man has a brain which makes him unique, however, making him intelligent enough to recognize "that he lives in a closed system and that his technology is so sophisticated and powerful that he can do irreparable harm to this sys- tem. "We are now recognizing that we can't take more put of the system than goes back into it, or spread our wastes around in ways which are harmful to the environment. It is because of this that we need specialists trained in the identification of pests and trained in the most efficient ways of dealing with Dr. Oloffs said. Otherwise we will continue to pour chemicals into our crops in an often careless fash- ion, perhaps doing no but perhaps doing much harm."
