Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 22, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 1HI HERAID Solurdoy, July 11, 1972 The Sea Canary Andy sends a complete 20- volumc set of llic Meril Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Slier- man Fever, age 12, ot Winni- peg, Manitoba, for his ques- tion: IVIiat Is a sea You might expect him to be s. midget because our sweet singing canary bird is such a small person. Not at all. He is a mighty giant, 18 feet long, and he belongs to the cool waters of the Arctic and north- era oceans. However, he is not a fish and naturally he is not related to the feathery bird world. No doubl you have used these clues to guess that the sea canary is a whale. Correct. He also a known as the beluga or the while whale and he is a born singer. Tastes in music differ and everybody has his or her per- sonal opinion about what sounds delightful. To Andy's old ears, the most delightful sound in the world comes Irom a [lock of happy children at play. It so happen that reliable obser- vers say that very similar sounds are made by the sea canary his kinfolk. He is, they say, the noisiest of all the gabby whales with perhaps the widest range of words and sounds. And all Ills utterances are made under water. Another remarkable feature is his color, which one might term as integrated. He is a black baby, a speckled black- and-white teenager and as he reaches adulthood his skin turns to the color of glistening United States rail firemen win battle WASHINGTON (AP) Rail- way industry and union officials announced yesterday settlement of what was described as the longest-running labor dispute, the one involving appointment of railway firemen. The settlement of the dispute, which dates back 35 years, calls for preservation of the jobs of some firemen now em- ployed and requires all vacan- cies for engineers to be filled from firemen's ranks. The jobs of nearly fire- men were eliminated in the last eight years under a federal ar- bitration ruling ordered by Con- gress. The dispute, which began in the 1930s when the railways began switching from coal-fired locomotives to diesel engines, has dragged through federal courts, Congress and the White House for decades. Al Chesser, president of the AFL-RIO United Transportation Union, which represents the firemen, called the agreement a victory for collective bargain- ing. William H. Dempsey, chair- man of the industry's National Railway Labor Conference, said the agreement will cost the rail- ways more money in the short run, but that eventually the number of firemen will be re- duced further at substantial savings to the industry. The industry had long argued there is no need for a fireman in the cab of a diesel engine while the union had said the engineer needs the firemen for safety reasons, to keep watch on the opposite side of the cab. snow. This is why he is called the white whale or the beluga, which means while. This color helps his massive body to blend with the ice floes adrift In his Arctic and northern oceans. Like most members of the whale elan, he shares his ocean going life with a group of his kinfolk. Marine biologists have recorded liis remarkable vocal range with hydrophones and report that a group of beluga whales is jus' about I he noisiest community in the world ocean. Their normal con- versation includes a wide range ot whoops and hollers, squeaks and squeals, punctuated with an assortment of gruff phutts and phutt-phutts. This medley reminds some observers of an orchestra tuning up the instru- ments before the main event. At other times, the beluga choir resounds with bell like notes and resonant moos, with playful whistles and lyrical so- prano trills. This is when the white whale deserves lo ue the sea canary. This is when the talented family reminds some people of a joyful glee club and other people think of a joyous troupe of children at play. As we know, sll the great whales have been plundered without sense or mercy and now rate high on Ihe list of en- dangered species. Some say that the great blue balleen whale is likely to become ex- tinct. Every year, an interna- tional committee meets to limit the taking of certain species, though whaling still is permit- ted. The sweet singing belugas are reduced in numbers and let's hope that people come to their senses before their joyous glee clubs are silenced forever. Andy sends to Karin Witzk, age 11, of Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, for her ques- tion: What gives a diamond its density? The density of any subsUnce depends upon how much mat- ter is packed into a certain size, or volume. A diamond is the hardest of natural sub- stances but many other sub- stances are more dense. It is, of course, a special crystal form of carbon. The structure of a crystal depends on the shape and size of its basic atoms or molecules and espec- ially upon the chemical attrac- tions they exert upon each other. All carbon atoms, natur- ally, are alike in all respects. As a diamond crystal grows, these buildt-in properties ar- range its carbon atoms in cube shaped units, linked at each corner to other identical units. The crystal is a lattice- work, built from particles of matter with spaces between them. Diamond is a rather loose, openwork laltice. 11 would be a much denser sub- stance if its carbon atoms were crowded together, with fewer and smaller spaces between them. However, the diamond's rather loose latticework hap- pens to form the hardest ot na- ture's substances. Questions asiea D? chTMien of Herald readers snould be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

(1972: By The Chicago Tribune) Nader raps report on Corvair cars WASHINGTON (AP) Ralph Nader promises "to wake up en- gineers all over" the country with a scathing attack on a U.S. government report that says the Corvair is no more dangerous lhan comparable aulos. "You can't believe the Additional awarded CALGARY (CP> A young Calgary man seriously injured in a car-motorcycle collision three years ago was awarded an additional in dam- ages, boosting the total to 000, in an appeal court ruling here. The Alberta Supreme Court appellate d i v i sion increased general damages for Montgom- ery A. Stewart, 24, to Irom Mr. Stewart had earlier re- ceived more than in spe- cial damages. Since the accident, he has spent more than a year in hos- pital and requires a wheelchair for moving more than short dis- tances. The accident occurred Aug. 21, 1909, and involved a c a r driven by an 80-year-old man whose negligence, the trial judge ruled, was the sole cause. Court ruling overturned CALGARY (CP) A court ruling which quashed warrants used by RCMP in a raid on Q and K Income Tax Sendee Ltd. was overturned by the Al- berta Supreme Court appel- late division. The service and two others were searched in April during an investigation under the fed- eral Small Loans Ad. The firms buy, usually at dis- counted prices, the impending tax rebates of persons needing immediate cash. An Alhcrta Supreme court justice quashed the warrants and said Ihere is no provision for searches under Ihe small loans act. He ordered the seiz- ed materials returned in the case of Mike's income lax ser- vice and spot cash income tax service but in the case of Q and R the material was held by the court. The appeal court ruled that the search provisions of the criminal code could be applied to the small loans act and re- inhaled the warrants. Dies in church .HORSEY CITY, N..I.

He is expected to launch his attack next week before the Se- nate commerce committee. The transportation depart- ment's report concluded "tha handling and stability perform- ance of the 1960-1963 Corvair does nol result in an abnormal potential for loss of control or rollover and it is at least as good as the performance of some contemporary vehicles both foreign and domestic." Nader called the report a con- Iradietory whitewash and faulted the report for failing to carry what Nader called a sig- nificant passage in a list of rec- ommendations submitted by a. panel of outside experts. The four-man panel of experts said the Corvair "is not more unstable or more likely to roll over than contemporary auto- mobiles." But it added that "tha panel recommends that owners of Corvairs be advised lhat these vehicles may exhibit unusual handling char- acteristics under conditions of hard cornering." Nader asked: "Are Ihey going to follow up the recommenda- tion by ordering General Motors to so notify CM COMMENTS Douglas Toms, director of the auto safety agency, was re- ported out of town and unavaila- ble for comment. General Mo- tors said the report "confirms our position on tne handling and stability characteristics of these cars." Nader also criticized the re- port for relying on robots, rather than human drivers, on road tests, lor using contempo- rary tires rather than early- 19GOs vinlage and for using only one Corvair from Ihe disputed 196Q-G3 group. GM produced slightly more than one million of the Corvairs. An estimated one-third of them are still on the road. The government study of acci- dent statistics concluded "the Corvair was involved in a lower percentage of rollover accidents than other light domestic cars." The report challenged data submilled by Nader lo support his claims. Some of il was con- Iradiclory, some involved an es- perimenlal car inlcntionally turned over in a GM test, and on Ford Motor Co. biased, the report said.
