The last federal telescope built in Canada was a 72-inch instrument completed in Victo- ria more lhan 50 years ago- The National Research Coun- cil's associate committee on as- tronomy has recently submit- ted two proposals to the govern- ment for two-separate 150-inch multi-million dollar telescopes lo be localed outside ol Canada.

France invilcd Canada to par- ticipate last February through the NRC and would like an an- swer as soon as possible, prefer- ably by the end of Ihe year.

His holdings included the Daim- 1 e r -B e n z automobile works, makers of the Mercedes. A Nuernberg war crimes tri- bunal sentenced Flick in 1947 to seven years in prison on charges of using slave labor but he was released in 1950. Two years later the Western oc- cupation powers returned part of his coal and steel holdings to liim. A communique from the Flick combine said he had had a seri- ous kidney ailment for some time. He also was reported to have had a bronchial condition. The communique said leader- ship of the combine would bo assumed by Flick's youngest son, Dr. Friedrich Karl Flick, i 45, who has been his father's i chief aide for the last 15 years. AVOIDED PUBLICITY D e s p i t e his wealth, Flick avoided publicity ar.d was a shadowy figure in West German industry. During the period when the Kaiser was building up his ar- mies, Flick entered the thriving iron and steel business and by the age of 30 he was the general manager of a steel foundry at Schwerte in the Ruhr. He proved to be adept at tak- ing over companies and banding them together into trusls. In the process, he created what at the Lime was the biggest coal and steel giant in Vereinlgte Stahlwerke. At the height of the Depression in 1931, Flick divested himself o[ his Vereinigte Stahlwerke interests which then were bought by the government. In 1936, Hitler commissioned him to reacquire these vast holdings. But as early as 1032, the Nuernberg indictment charged, Flick had joined about 30 other German industrialists lo form the "Ullle Circle." which ''par- ticipated i n effecting Hitler's rise to power."

PHONE 328-7684M Hardieville wins water By GREG MclNTYRE ilcrnld Stafr Writer The provincial environment department has approved a major new sewer and water works for the hamlet of Hardie- ville on the north border of Lethbridge. Construction has started on the project for water works and for a sewer system. Hardieville is currently with- out either public sewers or a central water hookup. Most residents have their own wells and septic tanks or outhouses. Department of the environ- ment approval includes the sti- pulation that twice annual dis- charge of waste from a pro- posed sewage lagoon in April and October only be done after at least two weeks no- tice is given the director of pollution control. At the same time, the hamlet of Coalhurst, northwest of Leth- bridge, may be within a year away from a full water and sewer system, following a study that has been commissioned by the Lethbridge County 26. With full water and sewer works, the Coalhurst population is expected to jump to 2.COO from a current 600 people. The services would open the door lo Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation money and a building boom, Jack Look, president of Ihc Coal- hurst Taxpayers Association, told council. "I'm very co.iKent that with- in two years every lot will be built on and the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission agrees with me." Mr. Look added that the local health officer has dis- covered water in some parts of Coalhurst contaminated by sewage, adding weight to the need for adequate sewage treatment. "There's a high water table in he said. Cour.cil directed J. C. Neu- feld and Associates Ltd., en- gineers, lo undertake a survey of water and sewage re- quirements in the community. Residents have presented council with a petition support- ing the study. Total cost of water and sew- er facilities has been estimated at for sewer works and for water. Cost to the 80 homes in the community is expected to be about a trailer parks year, and Schools, chicken farms at Coalhurst will likely be assessed a water and sewer fee based on use. Coalhurt currently has a water system described by Mr. Look as adequate for its pres- ent population. There is no sew- er system, however, with many homes on septic tanks. When costs have been deter- mined, residents will be asked to approve money for the pro- ject in a plebiscite. Councillor Jim Nicol express- ed concern that a proposed sewage treatment lagoon, to be located outside hamlet boundar- ies, will give off an unpleasant smell. Regulations require the la- goon be at least half a mile from the community boundary and at least feet from the nearest residence. CHINOOK STATIONERS LTD.
