14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, July t, 1971------ Rainmaking potential water resource By RUDY HAUGENEDER Herald Staff Writer RalnmakinK and salvaging river runoff into oceans nrc be- ing studied by the United Slates for its future freshwater needs. Ellis L. Armstrong, commis- sioner ot the U.S bureau of reclamation said his depart- ment Is studying the possibility of transmitting river runoff to water-short areas via an under- sea aquaduct. Speaking to (he annual meet- Ing of the Canadian Water Re- sources Association here Fri- day, he outlined a Colurado River basin area cloudsceding experiment. "The basic objective of this scientific research is to leam how we can manage precipita- tion in water-deficient he said. Experiments to dale have re- sulted in a 10 to 15 per cent yield increase in the Colorado River. Mr. Armstrong lauded Can- ada-U.S. co-operation in devel- oping water resources. "The great river basins of the world were not formed by po- litical lie said. Through conferences and meetings both countries can understand each other's prob- lems and can be dealt with "in fin atmosphere of mutual co- operation and responsibility." The planning process fpr fu- ture water needs has undergone radical change. Mr. Armstrong said today's planners are aware "there is a practical limit in population that a nation's resources can support at desired standards of Jiving." Almost half the American population is under 25 years of age and represents a built-in population increase which mil h a v e to bo accommodated in Iho next generation, lie said. To meet the needs of yet-un- born generations, resource de- velopment will have to be plan- ned In a way which Is com- patible with nature. Despite political boundary di- c i s i n n s, freshwater systems should be considered a single international entity, he said. And through mutual co-opera tion the solutions for maximum flnd realistic water resource de- velopment cnn be found.

Another charge, possession ot the drug MDA, was dropped. In sentencing Moline, Judge W.

A city police official Involved In the arrest of Moline said after the trial that "people who are using cocaine are often using heroin as well." "Cocaine counteracts the downer (depressive) state caused by the use of he said. "There are several ways to in- gest the cocaine, the most com- mon are to sniff the powder, or to melt the powder on a spoon above a small flame and inject it directly into a vein.

The study in the U.S. Is re- sponsible for summarizing the impact of major projects on the environment. The formation of a similar Canadian group could weigh considerably on a proposed Mackenzie Valley pipeline to carry Arctic gas. Lake ready at youth golf course The lake at the 15 to 25 Golf Course is finished and will be filled with waler beginning Monday. Directors of the course met with Calgary Power Ltd. offi- cials Friday to arrange for in- stalation of a 440 kilovolt trans- former to run the main pump- ing system for the course.

Six fairways and greens are planned this year. Future plans call for an 18-hole, layout. The course is located east of 28th St. N., immediately north of the television station.

"The grant we received was based on a 12 member group, but we have since found a real- ly cool drummer and we hope lo get an additional grant for him right now he's playing for Mrs. Lowry said. "When you figure it all out, each member gels only a little more than a month, and with our budget we will have to pay for some of the transporta- tion out of their incomes. But at least we arc involved and Taxes paid The local assessment depart- ment has received 84 per cent of the estimated for this year.
