Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, June 6, 1974 THE LETHBRID6E HERALD-17 Health officer warns It's tick precaution season again NATAL (HNS) Acting medical health officer Dr. Nick Schmitt of the East Kootenay Health Unit has reminded local parents and outdoorsmen the tick season has begun. The Rocky Mountain tick causes tick paralysis. It is abundant in the Kootenays now. Ticks don't live in trees but rather prefer open dry country on almost any low shrub and grass. It is the female that can cause paralysis. Once attached to an animal or human host and allowed to feed on its blood she, normally not much larger than a pinhead, increases immensely in size and may become as large as a swollen raisin. Tick bites are painless and are often not noticed. First symptoms of tick paralysis occur after the female tick has been feeding for about five (Jays. A person who is perfectly well one day may, the next day, complain of numbness in the feet and legs, with walking difficulties. A few hours later, it may be impossible to stand up. Gradually more serious paralysis develops, affecting the muscles of the throat and swallowing difficulties arise. The tongue may be involved and speech may be slurred. There is no pain and usually no fever. Most patients, during the early stages, feel generally quite comfortable and are entirely unaware of the seriousness of their condition. If the paralysis has not progressed to far, complete recovery within a few days follows the removal of the tick. However, if the tick is overlooked, the patient may die. Removal of the Rocky Mountain wood tick is simple. Grasp in firmly between first and thumb and pull with a slow, steady The head of this species of tick is very firmly attached to its body and almost never breaks off. The use of chemicals such as alcohol, ether, petroleum or hot objects such as cigarette butts are not only unnecessary but ineffective. There is absolutely no need to fear or avoid tick infested country. Children and adults may enjoy every normal outdoor activity as long as these few simple precautions are observed. During outings and hikes, tuck trousers or slacks into your boots. As parents, it is important to examine your children daily, paying particular attention to the hair covered areas of the head. Foremost Grade 6'ers stage Mini-Expo FOREMOST (Special) Grade 6 social studies pupils recently staged a "Mini Expo" in the Foremost School gymnasium. Teacher Irene Wallman directed the show with about 300 parents and pupils taking part. The program centred around exhibits from countries which students had researched. Many booths offered samples of food or drink that were representative of a particular country. Visitors could enjoy Florida orange juice or Brazilian coffee; chili con carne as served in Mexico, apples from B.C.; cactus juice from Arizona; or mutton from Australia. There were demonstrations of crafts and exhibits from other countries including Korea, Switzerland, Holland, Hawaii, Albania, Ethiopia, Hungary and Japan. Proceeds from the project will go towards paying for the upkeep of a foster child.

A technical committee, which will include C.P. Rail, Kaiser Resources Limited, Fording Coal Limited, and the Federal Environment Protection Service, was organized in February and has been directing tests since April 1 aimed at preventing the blowing of coal dust from trains. The committee, in a progress report, says its preliminary tests indicate that spraying, coupled with adequate load profiles, may represent a feasible solution. During the first phase of testing, the committee studied several factors, including the shape of the coal load within the car, the process of load settling during the first part of the train journey, and the effectiveness of several chemical sprays in holding down coal dust. Designated trains were sprayed either at the mines' loadout stations or at Fort Steele, some 100 miles away, to determine the effect of the natural settling of coal on the treated surfaces.
