Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 15, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta J 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, July 15, 1970 Albertans Have No Fears About U.S. Domination (EDMONTON (CP) A re- laxed attitude toward United States influence and Ameri- cans in general seems to pre- vail among Albertans and per- haps most westerners com- pared with central Canadians. The spectre of U.S. interests swallowing Canadian auton- omy is a "myth, bugbear and red hen-ing which people drag out every now and then, I think for political said Edmonton lawyer Joseph H. Shoctor, who is' active in varied fields, It doesn't frighten me. What does frighten me is all these people who are talkers and not doers. If that's the way they feel why don't they get out and build? "Where were all these peo- ple when Imperial Oil, the American-controlled corpora- tion, was searching for oil in Alberta? Why weren't they searching? Because they didn't have the guts, gumption or vision to part with a buck. Now when it's an accom- plished fact, they sit back and criticize." Growing U.S. investment does represent a hazard re- quiring balance but the situa- tion is within the capability of Canadian authorities to con- trol, said Andrew Snaddon, ed- itor of the Edmonton Journal. THIS IS OURS' Albertans realize their oil and gas economy is tied in with the U.S. but (hey do not want to "give'' Americans the oil any more than they want to "give" it to Eastern Cana- dians. "This is is our country, our province, and there's no feeling I know of that we ought to join the said Mr. Snad- don, who feels a root problem is that federal authorities and central Canada sometimes do not listen to the West. Still, Alberta has many resi- dents with American origins old and new. A migration July 8 p.m. A.N.A.F. Unit 34 "ERIC GREENHALGH NIGHT" A Social Evening for ANAF members in good standing, and their wives, to mark the occasion of the retirement of our club's long-time SECRETARY-MANAGER MR. ERIC GREENHALGH BE SURE TO ATTEND THIS IMPORTANT EVENTI wave took up land grants in the period around 1900, roam- ing cowboys finding their promised land. Some of these energetic set- tlers became as Americans but border-straddling western agrarian protest against the growing eastern industrial power. It is sometimes forgotten, incidentally, that a Calgary tent meeting preceded the He- gina manifeto of the CCF, now the New Democratic Party, and the Social Credit party also had its origin in that the famed Prophetic Bible Institute of Willim Aberhart and E. C. Manning now is a rock music emporium. Alberta was a rich brew even before the discovery of fabulous oil wealth in (lie province which stretches from. peaks of the Rocky Mountains to the low-lying badlands. Modern influx of American oil men and investment money, which had been de- nied by Toronto and Britain, combined with a tradition of free-and-easy relationships across the international boundary. "Another factor is that the type of American who comes to tlu's country tends to be highly paid, well educated and extremely active in the com- said Mr. Snaddon. All this could count if the theory of U.S.-Canadian union ever came to a you ever came down to as Mr. Snaddon put it. "You might find less resist- ance to it in Alberta simply because people are so accus- tomed to the Americans and they don't fear them or hate them in the way of a lot of people who haven't had the same contact." One must look beyond such features as oil riches and the sunniest climate in Canada to understand the spirit of loy- alty which exists in Alberta and differs, for instance, from Ontario, said Edmonton real- tor Jack Weber. "I think some of this great loyalty comes in a sort of psy- chological way because we haven't always been affluent. In a way, it's more of a pi- oneer spirit you feel you helped develop. You are a new thing, a new country, and this is passed on from genera- tion to generation." The "filthy rich" picture of PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES JACKPOT Lethbridge Eiks Lodge Room (Upstairs) EVERY THURSDAY-8 P.M, Albcrla projected throughout the country is resented by Mr. Snaddon, who said touring Eastern Canadian reporters become fixated with colorful Yankee talking oil men. The high-flying, wheeling, spending oil men were not representative though Alber- lans realized that as a prov- hardship in agri- cultural are well off." LEGEND NOT TRUE Author W. 0. Mitchell said the Calgary Stampede un- doubtedly helped put that rip- roaring cattle tually, a head-office city com- pared with Edmonton as gov- ernment the world map. Yet Calgary and Edmonton, he said, feel superior cultur- ally to Toronto in haps with impres- sive development and turnout in theatre, opera, philhar- monic. Mr. Mitchell, writer- in-residence at University of Calgary, declared: "That is not the image of Calgary as a result of this damn Kampede stuff. That image is of a guy with steer horns on his Mercedes and up- holstery on the door with guns in it, and a outfit.foi his palomino parade horse all this ballyhoo and Ameri- can legend which was never even true of Americans, ei- ther." Farmers, relatively speak- ing, are in a more unhappy position now than during the Depression, said Paul Bahey president of the Farmers Union of Alberta, representing of the province's "farm units." Then, at least, most of the Canadian population was in the same fix and perhaps farmers "were better off than others because they hac food." "Today the standard of liv- ing and wage have gone up for many sectors of society but unfortunately the farmer is left.... The effect of infla- tion in agriculture is much more severe in terms of in- come compared with costs of gccds, services and essentials worse than in the 1930s." Mercury Fight Now Shaping Up WASHINGTON (AP) Inte- rior Secretary Walter J. Hickel said Tuesday a team of experts will pinpoint areas in the United Stales where mercury is a threat to health and lay the groundwork for control.

Hickel sent telegrams to gov ernors of 17 states urging strong in cases where mercury pollution of waterways has been detected. The states are Alabama, Del aware, Georgia, Kentucky Louisiana, Maine, Massachu setts, Michigan, North Carolina New York, Ohio, Tennessee Texas, Virginia, Washington West Virginia and Wisconsin. Mercury, the liquid inside or d i n a r y thermometers, is a heavy metal, poisonous to hu mans. Scientists, who pre- viously thought it dissolved too little in water to pose a threa' to health, now have found thai mercury compounds are presen in many of the nation's water ways, largely as a result of the dumping of industrial wastes, "Discharges of mercury present an intolerable threat to the health and safety of Ameri Hickel said. This dan gerous practice must be stopped." Mercury persists in nature for many as long as a century, scientist estimate They say its effects on humans through destruction of nerves and brain tissue, cannot be cured. Hickel said has designatet experts from the federal water quality administration and the geological survey, both agencies of the interior department, to study mercury pollution. Industries found responsible for mercury pollution will be no- tified, he said. In his telegram to each gover- nor Hickel said information al- ready gathered indicates "that certain firms in your state are discharging mercury into water- ways." Hickel named no specific in- dustries or waterways in his tel- egram or in his official an- nouncement of the action.
