Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 20, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta JO THE IETHBRID6E HERAtD Monday, July 20, 1970 Light Horse Show o Has Novelty Day Saturday was novelty day at the Whoop Up Days light horse show. Musical chairs, res- cue racing, and a saddle up class, as well as regular events, brought the five day show to a close. Twenty young riders vied for the honor of being the last con- testant to remain in the musi- cal chairs event. Tires were placed in a large circle in the centre of the cor- ral one tire less than the number of .contestants. Bound and round and round the con- testants wer.t, jumping from their horses and leading them ahead to the nearest unoccu- pied tire when the music stopped. One by one, the con- testants were left without a toe and were out of the event. Finally, out of puff, but not out of steam, the smallest team entered in the event, Maxuie McKenna, Lethbridge, and her horse H'l Injun arrived at the last tire seconds before Debbie Stronski, Turin, riding Joker's Mirage to win the event and the Lethbridge Herald Trophy. Immediately fol 1 o w i n g the musical chairs event, eight res- cuers raced from one end of the corral, swooping down to pick up a. "victim" waiting at .the far end, getting him onto the horse and returning to the start- ing line. Judy Hoot, Lethbridge riding Mr. Zed performed the fastest rescue to win the class. Later in the morning, three women, Joanne Perlich, Leth- bridge, Dixie Gray, Lethbridge, and D e a n n a" Eeesor, Walsh, contested in a saddle up race. The three ran the length of the corral to their horses, hal- tered the horses and led them back across the corral to their saddles. They then saddled live horses, and 'rode them around a barrel in the middle of the corral and back across tte fin- ish line. Dixie Gray crossed ths finish line a nose ahead of her two opponents.

NATO Conference Continues In City Fear Of DDT Is 'Bad Mistake' Says Scientist From Britain BY JIM WILSON Herald Staff 'Writer Fear of the effects of using DDT as an insecticide is emo- tional and a bad mistake, a Bri- Ssh pharmacologist'says. "We have no evidence that DDT is harmful when it collects n organic said Pro- fessor Andrew Wilson, head of the University of Liverpool's department of pharmacology and general therapeutics. "Of course that was a con- oern about DDT: would it pro- duce a disturbance of organic functions. The original fear was hat it might produce cancer in the there's not a sin- gle shred of evidence that this can happen." Prof. Wilson is one of 75 in- ternational scientists in Leth- jridge attending the nine day nstitute on toricity of pesti- cides used on livestock, organ- zed by the Lethbridge research station and sponsored' by the forth Atlantic Treaty Organ- nation. "DDT does collect in most tis- sues, but it isn't harmful in the jrudent doses normally ac- quired and it eventually [eaves the tissues and the body "In terms of many alterna- tives to DDT, one would have to ie even more prudent and care- !ul though: they're much more ;oxic in the long run than Prof. Wilson said. He said it was still sensible j do everything possible to re- duce levels of DDT and other organochlorine insecti c i d e s which have built up in animal issues and soil. 'I think this concern about DDT is of historical rather ;han current ho said. "There is little doubt that DDT was at first more widely and extensively used than one would consider prudent today. "In large enough doses it can be harmful, of course, but this level is so high the actual health record of DDT is enor- mously good, and when you con- sider that use of DDT has saved something like four billion peo- ple from dying of malaria the malariologists tell us its Equestrian Champions Decided County of Lethbridge eques- trian championships were run recently at the Lethbridge Hill- toppers' gymkh ana facilities, with all first and second place winners now eligible to enter the equestrian event at the Southern Alberta Summer Games in Pincber Creek Aug. 12 and 13. There were 28 entries in 87 classes at the county meet, with competitors and spectators from Turin, Lethbridge, Sunny- side, Coalhurst, Monarch, Bar- ons and Diamond City. Judge for the events was Jack Miller, from High River. Remaining events leading up to the Summer Games include horseshoes competitions July 25 in Coaldale, and a slow pitch competition the same day, also in Coaldale. use becomes extremely impor- tant to human life." The concern about organ- ochlorine insecticides such as DDT is that they are extreme- ly stable chemicals, retain ing their ability to kill organisms for 20 or more years. The re- sult is that they accumulate over the years, with small and harmless amounts adding together to produce more dan- gerous levels. Prof. Wilson cautioned that tliis could become a serious problem "if it is used irrespon- sibly." 'There are important uses of DDT, and tiie fact that it per- sists and accumulates is not a contrary indication to its use, he said. "The whole attitude should be to reduce it, because we're stUl accumulat- ing what has already been put there rather lavishly." Concerning damage to the food chain, which describes the organisms being eaten By larger ones which are in turn eaten by lar- ger ones Prof. Wilson said the accumulation of DDT pass- ed to each organism along the chain simply proves that DDT will collect in organic tis- sues "and there's no evidence Grain Quota The Canadian wheat bflard has announced grain delivery quotas effective immediately, of three tefhels at Cowley, Fin- castle and Wirmifred, and four bushels at Brooks, Champion, OcaWale, Cranford, Foremost, Purple Springs, SHff, and Pea- cock Siding. Fine A Lethbridge man, James Edmond Galloway, was fined and costs when he plead- ed guilty in magistrate's court in Lethbridge Monday to not having care and control of a motor vehicle when his Wood alcohol content was over .08. He was prohibited from driv- ing anywhere in Canada for nine months. to show it causes harm there." Prof. Wilson bases his state- ments in part on research he has done in several Dutch in- secticide production plants which manufacture both organ- ochlorine and organophosphor- ous pesticides. He has also studied people who apply the chemicals to fields and said he has seen no evidence that the chemicals have had any effects at all on human muscular or nervous They were not engaged, how- ever, in production or use of DDT, he said. He hopes his research will be the beginning of development of more delicate and sensitive in- dexes of whether people heav- ily exposed to toxic chemicals are affected. Prof. Wilson is also chairman of a British government advi- sory agency charged with mak- ing evaluations on new and old pesticides and similar chemi- cals. He suggested other countries could consider establishing sim- ilar agencies. In December his committee published a review of organo- chlorine pesticides including DDT, dialdrin and aldrin, and he said the government has act- ed on the recommendations. "There were areas of use for these chemicals which we con- sider very important and must be he said. "There are also other areas where we think there should be further development of alterna- tives, where perhaps other means of insect control would be more desirable. "But if you completely want to ban DDT, you must have something else to put in its place, and not just something at the same price, bat some- thing mat's as safe as DDT is."
