Scientist Raps Public Hysteria About Pollution By JIM WILSON Staff Writer "I would rather see the ex- tinction of the Peregrine fal- con or any other minor or- ganism than see children con- tinue to starve in poorer na- tions than Dr. B. B. Migicovsky, director general of the Canada Department of Agriculture said here Tuesday. "In my book the objective is he said. "We must seek a good .life for all mankind. If that means altering ths envir- onment, resulting in destruc- tion of a species of bacteria, insect or bird, then so be it 'Mankind is the important species, and his survival is paramount." Dr. Migicovsky was speak- ing to 75 international scien- tists at the windup banquet for the Lethbridge institute on tox- icity of pesticides used on live- stock, organized by the Leth- bridge Research Station and sponsored by NATO. "No doubt, mankind's sur- vival and well-being depends on the maintenance of a bal- ance of Dr. Migicov- sky continued. "We man are the only species in a postal to do something to consciously in- fluence this balance. "It's not simple; it requires more knowledge than we now have, and more wisdom than we have used in the past." Pollution, he said, has al- ways been an important prob- lem to agricultural scientists1, who "are probably more aware of pollution than any other group of scientists, because we work directly with our environ- ment." Some pollution may be the price man has to pay "to feed the seven billion people we'll have in. tUe year 2000. "And if you eliminate, or even reduce pollution, there is a price to pay for it, and it is we, not some vague 'they' who are going to pay." BE CERTAIN That being the case, he warn- ed, it is wise to be certain what is and what is not pollu- tion, and whether problems re- sulting from production wastes are real or imagined'. "This decision must be. based on the unbiased data of qualified scientists, not on the remarks of some hysterical e v a n g e Dr. Migicovsky said. It is necessary for scientists to be aware of the need for public explanations of what they are doing and why, to "counteract the hysterical de- tractors of our lie said, urging all scientists gath- ered to become more aware of their public relations roles. The primary aim of agricul- ture is efficient production of food and fibre, Dr. Migicovsky said, and this job is becoming increasingly difficult with .the rapidly growing world popula- tion. "To adequately feed this pop- ulation we have only a limited amount of arable land in the world, and already one-third of our population is not receiving enough calories and protein to maintain life." This makes it completely ne- cessary to use whatever means are necessary to control insect populations, "which have the ability to exterminate mankind and at least to limit his ability to lead the good life." However: "If the population continues to increase at its present rate the time will come when nature will not be able to tolerate our numbers. POPULATION CONTROL "The real solution to this se- rious Dr. Migicov- sky said, "lies in effective human population control. "We cannot stand our pop- ulation increase'rate any long- SAVE TO 60% ON MUFFLER REPLACEMENTS WE HAVE: A MUFFLER FOR MOST CARS FREE INSTALLATION 10 MINUTE INSTALLATION LIFETIME GUARANTEED MUFFLERS FREE INSPECTION AND ESTIMATES All AT UFFLEF4 509 6th Avenue South Phone 328-8134 er, because it we do nothing about it, then nature it will be most unpleasant." He said agriculture contri- butes to environmental pollu- tion in four main ways: placing new land under cultivation, disturbing the ecol- ogical balance. quantities of fer- tilizers must be used to pro- duce the vast quantities of food required, which could possibly be harmful to the environment. animal wastes result from increased livestock production. and biological agents must be used to control diseases, insects and plant pests which ravage crops and animals and these could be hazardous to the environment if used without proper precau- tions. How ever, Dr. MigicOysky said, the effects of these can be kept "to a bare minimum" if done with at the expense of increased cost of production and higher food ccsts for the consumer. "To attain our objectives without damage to our environ- ment we need more and better research, and it is up to the general public to let their leg- islators know the last thing they should do is cut research funds." Agricultural research, he said is "a life-jacket for our environment" and must not be curtailed in any way, or man's environment will become worse and worse. ZAP! ANOTHER COB PLEASE Food's Half The Fair Fun By RIC SWIHART Staff Writer Got a taste for a full course meal or just a snack? Don't want to leave the fair grounds? For those who haven't al- ready found out, you can suit the taste of anyone right on the grounds at Whoop-Up Days. Many Lethbridge business- men have rented spaces from the fair board to sell food sim- ilar to the food sold in stores ia Lethbridge but one vendor in particular is finding Leth- bridge and district weather and people "just to his tastes." The M. Pellerin family from Montreal, Quebec, is operating an independent concession stand near the entrance to the midway, specializing in stan- dard carnival food with 8 little French barking thrown in for free. "The hot dogs and hambur- gers catch the mainstream of the fair-going he said. With a operation, tra- velling to various exhibitions and fairs across Canada for three months is hard work but he says he manages to make a living. He has 10 helpers in the con- cession stand, with more used on Saturdays when the demand warrants. The biggest problem with running a business like the food cone e s s i o n is help. "People don't want to work hard for their money anymore which puts a bigger stress on my wife and he said. As far as the business is con- cerned, it is a good learning exper i e n c e for young people and experience is the only learner for anyone trying to get into this business. Joe Madarash, owner of the Budapest Restaurant, 409 2nd St. S., is finding a public taste for his home-made Hungarian sausages, cottage rolls, liver sausages and goulashes along with soft drinks and coffee. Mr. Madarash started his res-. taurant business in Lethbridge six years ago, and reports his stand at the exhibition to be do- ing excellent business. The Young Buddhists Associ- ation has a stand near the Water Wonderland display. Rei Takeyasu, conces s i o n worker, says the combination dish is the most popular with the public. This includes rice, chow mein and sweet and sours. The stand, 100 per cent church operated, is one of the forms of supporting the opera- tion of the Lethbridge church. Operating at the exhibition for over 10 years, the best time for selling food is during ths noon and supper meal times. "We sell more along the lines of a true meal rather than serv- ing snacks and the public seems to like she said. "The young people work in the booth but it takes the spe- cial talents of the older mem- bers of the church to add the Whoop-Up Gates Previous Record 1969 1970 Monday (1964) Tuesday (1969) Wednesday (1969) Thursday (1968) Friday (1966) Saturday (1966) Record six-day attendance..........

A first for the fair is the booth 'by Bimbo's Pizza House, specializing in pizza and sau- sages. The new operation, situated in the former El Rancho take out store, is offering a seven inch pizza for only 89 cents. Owners Brian Dickson, Peter Hatfield and Chris Deaken say business is excellent. They say this will be a year- ly effort simply because the ac- ceptance of the food is excel- lent by the fair going public and "since this is our first ven- ture in the food concession busi- ness." A miniature Sven Ericksen's take out near the entrance to the Exhibiion Pavilion is busy, from 6.30 a.m to about 10 p.m Serving the ever popular chicken dinners, beef-on-a-b u r and hamburgers at a recorc clip, takes eight girls working in hvo shifts to keep the public satisfied. The girls report that desserts are "no go" in the booth, with soft drinks and ice cream real popular. The breakfasts are a big draw with the people working at the grounds. Bacon and eggs out-sell everything. The Kinsmen's food booth is open to the public serving foot- long hot dogs as the most popu- lar treat. Public demand for' the ser- vice is satisfactory over past years.

Andy Andrews, manager of Whoop-Up Days said 873 cars paid to park on the exhibition grounds Tuesday. He said there is facility for cars in the area. "With the staff of young peo- ple directing traffic in lira parking areas, there have been no difficulties for the first part of the fair. All situations that have arisen have been han- dled he s-aid. To Exchange All Tickets The Lethbridge and District Exhibition Board met Tuesday evening, following cancellation of. the night performance, to set up a ticket exchange for those having tickets for the night show. The new policy, is to ex- change all tickets for the night performance of Tuesday night for tickets of other nights in- cluded in Whoop-Up Days. The new policy is to ex- sued at the downtown ticket of- fice between 10 a.m. and 12 a.m. daily or after 1 p.m. at the grandstand office. Out-of-town residents may phone the grandstand office and have tickets held until pick-up can be made. All persons must have the stubs from the cancelled tick- ets before receiving new tick- ets. T> Regrassmg Scheduled City residents concerned about the preservation of the river valley may rest assured the city will restore the grass removed during the installa- tion of services to the west side. Ted Lawrence, city engineer- ing director, says now that the water and sewer lines have been installed and tested the only remaining work is the Al- berta Government Tele phone lines. After this is completed the parks and recreation depart- ment will re-seed the area with drought-resistant grass, prob- ably early in September.
