PHONE 328-7121 "Do you have a spare pair of for holiday Eclipse on Monday; view it carefully The Canadian Association of Optometrists warns that unless proper precautions are taken, dozens of people could suffer permanent eye damage during the eclipse of the sun on Mon- day. The eclipse, at about a.m. Lethbridge time, is caused when the moon passes between the sun and the earth, blocking the sun's light. The eclipse phenomenon will encourage a strong temptation to stare directly at the sun, said the optometriss. They emphasize however that prop- er precautions must be taken if people wish to avoid damag- ing their eyes while viewing the eclipse. The safest and most conveni- ent method is to watch the Whoop-Up Trail film on Sunday A film titled Remnants of the Whoop-Up Trail will be shown in the assembly room of the Sir Alexander Gait Museum Sunday at 3 and 4 p.m. There will be no charge for the showing, but the nominal door fee to the museum will be in effect. The production, 18 minutes 10 seconds in length, was film- ed by Carly Stewart, second vice president of the Leth- bridge Historical Society. The film took Mr. Stewart more than a year to complete and covers the trail from Fort Whoop-Up to Fort Benton. The ox-cart trail was made about 1868 and used until 1892. The Lethbridge Historical So- ciety, which aims at publishing local historical accounts, fi- nanced the film. Mr. Stewart said that Rem- nants of the Whoop-Up Trail is the only film he knows of made about the trail. The historical society will al- so show the film to any group which indicates interest.

However, viewing can be done personally, but only by means of a "pinhole 'hich is an enclosed container such as a shoe box or flower box, which has a clean hole punched in one end with a needle, and plain white paper taped inside at the other end. The viewer stands with his back to the sun and points the pin-hole at it. A clearly defined image of the eclipse will be projected on the white paper. The image is viewed through a peephole made near the edge in the same end of the sunscope as the pinhole through which the image is passed. The Optomistrists Associa- tion warns that the eclipse should not be looked directly at with binoculars, telescopes, opera glasses, smoked glass or sun glasses. Exposed film or crossed pola- roid sheets can also be excess- ively dangerous to use, be- cause they reduce the visible glare which would normally cause a person to turn away from the sun, but the invisible infrared radiation, which is the real danger, still goes through the material. The association encourages parents to point these dangers out to their children, and says preparing a sunscope is not only safe but can also be an enjoyable, educational family project.

Armstrong, commis- sioner for the United States bu- reau of reclamation reminded Canadians a commitment of southern Alberta water to the United States. Under terms of a treaty sign- ed in 1909, the U.S. is entitled o a share of Waterton and 3elly River water which orig- inates inside both borders at Slacier and Waterton Parks. And when the need for water n the U.S. becomes acute, Mr. Armstrong said, "provisions of he treaty should be fulfilled." Addressing more than 100 delegates attending the final day of the Canadian Water He- sources A s s o c i a lion annual meeting here Friday, he pro- >osed an exchange. The physical solution would probably be by exchange of Waterton-Belly water for St. LOOKS OKAY, DAD Heather, 3 watches as father Dan Seyl is fitted into an 1873 Mountie costume 'by Gayle Tsujiura, 19, of Coaldale, a travel counsellor at the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta's tourist office near the brewery gardens.

Ph. 328-4595 Mary River water and con- struction by Canada of a canal to deliver the United States en- titlements into Montana." Mr. Armstrong, who earlier said no Canadian water will be needed in the U.S. for about 10 years, referred to a 1948 Inter- national Joint Commission ref- erence on the treaty which shows "the U.S. is entitled to a share of the water crossing the boundary." Although the remarks sur- prised m a n y of the Canadian experts at the meeting, hallway discussion pointed out Canada also held a pat hand. According to the treaty terms the U S. is definitely entitled to a share of the water. However, Canada is under no obligation to provide the facilities to transport the water to them. Theoretically, a water re- sources scientist pointed out, Canada could force the U.S. to I ilia thi i i: y '.'.I'-cr. ELLIS ARMSTRONG but Alberta won't sell Alberta won't sell fresh water to the United States Environ- ment Minister Bill Yurko told :hc annual Canadian Water Re- sources Association meeting Friday. The province doesn't have surplus water after all local uses are taken into considera- tion, he said. An Alberta water surplus can only come about as a result of "government mismanagement or when the priority and econ- omic value of one use is calc- ulated or declared higher than another use." He said the province will not take part in any national or interprovmcial studies to ex- port Canadian water. Mr. Yurko warned that ad- vocates of massive water di- version or export usually do so for "chosen objectives." Alberta is currently drafting water management policies, he said for internal provincial purposes. In them, the province lays claim to all waters within its boundaries because "water is a natural resource primar- ily a provincial responsibility." Constitutionally assured of the management of its water resources, Mr. Yurko said Al- berta will "pursue all avenues necessary to maintain primary control over its internal water management programs." "Nevertheless, Alberta real- izes that there is a component of water resource management that is interprovmcial and na- tional in scope and needs to be strengthened. "Tliis component Is regula- tory in nature and supportive through research and technical assistance rather than directly administrative and project im- plementive in he said.
