Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Herald Third Section Lethbridge, Alberta, Saturday, June 9, 1973 Pages 27-32 Available in Alberta in New drivers' licences virtually tamper-proof A new, virtually tamper-proof driver's licence and ID card will be available to Alberta motorists after the first of July this year. However, it could be the fall of 1979 before all motorists are carrying around the new li- cences which will carry a color photo of the licensee and his signature under a layer of plastic laminate. To effect a reasonable work load distribution, the Alberta Highways Department, during 1972, issued licences of from one to five years duration, re- newable on the motorist's birth date. Persons applying for li- cences up to July 1 will con- tinue on this system. Under the system being intro- duced, which will affect anyone applying for a licence after July 1, 1973, the motorist will apply for his new five-year licence in the same manner as previous- ly, pay his fee and receive a temporary, 90day licence. His application form will re- ceive the noron-al checks in the Motor Vehicles Branch offices, and then be fed into a comput- er which will print out a plastic licence. This licence will have a layer of plastic laminated on top to seal the front of the card, and then will be mailed back to the applicant. With his licence, the appli- cant will receive an instruction card requesting him to go to one of the 100 centres in the province which will be equipped with a camera and a laminat- ing machine. Officials at the licensing cen- tre will check the individual's identification closely and take his picture with a special Pol- aroid camera. The applicant then signs his card; the coolr photograph is inserted in an oval window in the card, and a sheet of special plastic is lam- inated on the back sealing in the motorist's picture and sig- nature. The resulting licence will be completely encased in a spe- cial plastic making It water proof and extremely resistant to heat, abrasion and breakage. The new licensing program in Alberta will utilize about 100 cameras, located throughout the province. In addition to the four government motor vehicle branches in Edmonton, Calgary, Lethbridge and Medicine Hat, the department will utilize the 77 Treasury Branches through- out the province; some Alberta Motor Association offices; 11 private licensing offices in areas some distance from a Treasury Branch, and the R.C.M.P. in Fort Chipewyan. With the steps taken in 1972 to stagger licence renewals, the department expects to have about of the province's one million driver's licences ex- pire each year. These, coupled with new and replacement ap- plications, will give the depart- ment an estimated volume of about licences to be is- sued each year. The licence fee will remain unchanged at per year, or tunities to serve on board of directors ALBERTA EDUCATIONAL COMMUNICATIONS CORPORATION Nominations are Invited by the Government of Alberta for qualified persons to serve, with honorarium and expenses, in. the establishment and operation of an Alberta Educational Communications Corporation, For those interested, here is an opportunity to take part In the direction that educational broadcasting will take in Alberta.

Persons wishing to replace their driver's licence with the new card, prior to the expira- tion of their current licence, may do so for the replace- ment fee. The system chosen by the government for the "photo-on- licence" program is a proven system. It is in use in numer- ous areas for top-line identifi- cation, and is used in Vietnam for civilian identification. f All 9 OT Alberta S 11CW -m 3d I Oh for the life of a French dog By DONAT VALOIS PARIS (CP) dog's life in France is a .pretty good deal. One of every two hroiso- holds, be they homes or apart- ments, owns a dog ana the Acupuncture effective pain killer LOS ANGELES (CP) Acu- puncture is effective in reliev- ing the pain of rheumatoid arth- ritis, a researcher reported to- day on the basis of studies made at the University of Mani- toba. But the treatment has little or no effect on inflammation and on the course of the disease, said Dr. C. S. Man, a Taiwa- nese physician completing his p o s t-graduate training in rheumatology and physical medicine in Canada. "Pain relief is, however, ter- ribly he said in an address to 800 physicians and scientists attending three days of meetings here of the Arth- ritis Foundation. Dr. Man, director of the acu- puncture research unit at the University of Manitoba, de- scribed controlled studies con- ducted at the university to sort out fact from psychological ef- fect. The study included 20 pabenis with rheumatoid arthritis and knee involvement. One knee of each patient was treated with injection of steroid drugs. The other knee was treated with acupuncture. SOME TREATMENTS FAKE Half the patients received their acupuncture in the "cor- rect" meaning the needles were inserted in the proper places. The rest thought they received correct acu- puncture treatment but the need- les actually were put in the wrong places. These knees thus became untreated knees and the procedure was identified as "placebo1 acu- puncture. celebrated British passion for canines has been suroassed by the French in the last 12 years. A French dog can go almost anywhere his master cafes, restaurants, bakeries, butcher shops, pharmacies and hairdressers. Dogs are still barred from the theatre and the opera house but dogs' liberationists say that may change soon. When-the family goes on va- cation, the dog goes along and can share their hotel room free of charge or for a modest sum. Articles about dogs appear regularly in the newspapers and television shows feature experts discussing the dog's qualities, illnesses and rights. One of the recent best-sell- ers in Paris is a book called Les Chiens Nous Parlent Dogs Speak to Us. NAMES DISTINGUISHED As for names, no Patauds, Milous, Fidos or Kings, as in French Canada. Such distin- guished names as Hector, Robert and Adrien adorn the collars of French dogs. One Paris boutique special- izes in the sale of dog collars, offering collars for various times of day. Those for after- five wear are made of velvet and decorated with gems that would make a human female jealous. Supermarkets carry a vari- ety of canine food and some stores feature a special meat counter where a dog's rations are sold packaged just like his master's. In some homes dogs are treated like children. A woman on a recent television show said her three dogs sleep with her children and eat out of the same plates. "Once you let them into your bed you can hardly re- fuse to let the meat at your bed you can hardly refuse to let them eat at your she said. And now the ultimate has arrived. For dogs lacking con- tact with the opposite sex, there now are rendezvous centres where, for a price, they can "socialize" with can- ine friends. "Stay In School" "Get An Education" How many times have you told this to your own children or to their friends! You emphasize that the days of getting by on a grade 9 or 10 education are gonel However, there's one catch EDUCATION COSTS MONEY! and many families today, with the cost of living so high, do not have the available funds to allow one, or several children in the family to continue their education to the college or university level. YOU CAN HELP If you are a businessman, plant operator, self-employed, or just a homemaker, now is the time to hire a student who is willing to work to continue his or her education next fall. Hundreds of students are looking for jobs, any job; for a day, a week, a month or all summer. Why not call soon.
