Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 14, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THE GIRL AND THE GARGOYLE-After being captive in concrete for nearly 60 years, this caricature of a printer's or apprentice, has won his freedom. He and sev- eral others decorated the original home of the Calgary Herald and are new being removed and preserved. The paper left those offices in 1932 and the building is being demolished to make way for a telephone exchange. Is pure water really beneficial? Ey DR JOHN LENIHAN LONDON (CP) During the 19th century, doctors and social reformers fought to es- tablish a connection between water and disease and little more than a century ago, the cheap and abundant water supplies most people now take for granted were unknown in most cities.- The reformers succeeded and pure water be- came widely available for do- mestic uses and sewage dis- posal. The results were dramatic. Glasgow had deaths from cholera in 1332 and al- most as many in 1849 and 1853 only 55 in the great epi- demic of 186S, the year after the completion of a scheme bringing water to the city from Uie Scottish Highlands. Now doctors anil scientists are beginning to wonder whether pure water really is beneficial. Their anxiety arises because of the heavy toll of certain heart diseases in towns using soft water. Most water supplies have a hardness between 50 nnd 500 parts of dissolved sails per million, depending on the local geological conditions. In recent years it has been no- ticed in many countries, in- cluding the United {States, Britain, Sweden, Canada and Japan, that the deatli rate from heart disease is-hjgher it areas with soft water than in areas with hard water. FINDS RELATIONSHIP Some of the most interest- ing research into this problem has been done by Dr. Mar- garet Crawford and her col- leagues at the Medical Re- search Council's social medi- cine unit, working in the Lon- don School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. In a sur- vey of 61 large towns in Brit- ain Dr. Crawford's team found a convincing relation- ship between water hardness and the death rate from heart disease. In eight towns with soft water, the death rate from heart disease was nearly 40 per cent higher than in seven towns witli hard or moder- ately hard water. In Glasgow, which has the softest water of any large city in the world, the death rate from heart dis- ease is about 50 per cent higher than in London, which has hard water. Water is not the only factor involved. as regards sugar and fats- lias also been implicated but no firm conclusions have yet been reached. Water, how- ever, is more easily studied. Changing the-hardness of a town's water supply might seem a rather drastic experi- ment but Dr. Crawford's re- searches show that the experi- ment has already been done, for other reasons, in several pails of Britain. FIND WATER HARD Where housewives have complained of hard water, local authorities may have re- sorted to artificial softening of the water supply by chemical methods. In other towns, boundary changes or natural growth in population has led to the development of fresh sources of water, sometimes softer and sometimes harder than those previously in use. Reviewing the death rates from heart diseases in towns where water supplies have been changed, Dr. Crawford obtained a significant result. The rale of increase of deaths from heart disease is gener- ally below average in towns where the water .has been hardened and substantially above average in towns where the water has been softened. The research workers are organizing a survey for the analysis of drinking water in 12 British with hard and six with soft water. These studies are concerned particularly with the concen- tration of trace elements such as lead, cadmium, zinc, cop- per, chromium and man- are thought to be related to a number of im- portant human diseases. One clue is of particular in- terest. Soft water dissolves lead from domestic piping much more than hard wafer because in hard-water areas the inside of the pipes soon becomes coated with a deposit which protects the surface of the metal. It is therefore pos- sible that people living in soft water areas absorb more lead than those in hard water areas. Most of these ideas are still speculative but heart disease now is the major killer iu many industrial countries. Dr. John Leolhan is direc- tor of (he department of clinical physics and Jbio-cn- ginccring for (he western regional hospital board in Glasgow. The Lethbrtdge Herald THIRD SECTION Lethhridge, Alberta, Wednesday, June 14 ,1972 PAGES 33-48 Forest fire damage toll expected to exceed '71 By MIKE WILLIAMS Canadian Press Slaff Wriler Canada's forest fire season opened wilh a bang this year but rain throughout most of the provinces lias squelched the im- mediate threat of major disas- Although few figures are available on the number of fires or amount of timber destroyed so far this year, some officials predict this season's totals will iurpass those in 1971, when Canadian firest fires de- stroyed more than 3.9 million acres. Of that total, fires oc- curred in the provinces and damaged 2.1 million acres. The Northwest and Yukon territories had fires and 1.8 million acres of timber burned. A Cross Canada survey by The Canadian Press that nost provincial governments are initiating education pro- grams aimed at reducing the number of forest fires. Some are turning to the use of television, radio and other means of mass communication to educate people on the liaz- areld of forest fires. IIUMAQJS CAUSE THEM As one forest fire official said, most forest fires are caused by human negligence and it is im- perative that this point 'continue to be broadcast. Among other means taken to combat frequent outbreaks of fires, Newfoundland requires non residents to carry forest travel permits while in wooded areas. The danger of forest fires In Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Ed- ward Island was great at the beginning of the warm weather, but recent rains have cooled things off. A spokesman for the forest service in Newfoundland, which has five Canso water, bombers to aid it in forest-fire fighting, said the province "went from winter to summer without spring dampness to wet down the forests. One blaze June 4 burned for a half-mile through dense bush in the central part of the province. RULES SET Besides requiring non-resi- dents to carry forest travel per- mits, Newfoundland has iny posed other regulations. Out- door fires must be set within four feet of water and 50 feet away from the nearest shrub and no one is allowed to walk through the forests with a lighted cigarette, pipe or cigar. A smoker must sit in one place until he is finished. Nova Scotia is also going all out in its efforts to curb forest fires. It has begun a series of radio and television commercials and a school program and places signs along the highway warn- ing of forest fire dangers. All outdoor fires in the province have been banned until further notice. By May, most forests in the province were scorched and the forest fire index was rated as high to extreme. There were bad fires near Halifax, Antigonish, Annapolis, Guysborough and Lunenburg. These areas, along with Cape Breton Island, arc still consi- dered likely danger spots. In Prince Edward Island, >roy MacKinnon, a forestry of- icial, said heavy rains near the end if May greatly reduced the hreat of fires after blazes were near Savage Harbor, )puglas Station, Tracadie, Uigg, North Cape, Richmond md Souris. BOURSE STARTED The agriculture department lias started a course on fire pre- vention and the province has placed five fire trucks around he island to deal specifically with forest fires. Tlie worst series of fires since 1965 was recorded during the last week of May in New Bruns- wick, Robert McCullough, direc- tor of the province's forest fire protection branch, said in a re- cent interview. About acres of forest were destroyed in more than 40 fires wliich broke out in a two- day period. Most of them were SWIMSUiTS I swimsuits in a variety of slyles and pat- I terns.

But again, rain at the begin- ning of June reduced the dan- ger. The New Brunswick natural resources department conducted extensive newspaper, radio and television campaigns during Na- tional Forestry Week in May and Canadian Forestry Service radio and television ads arc planned throughout the year. The 'government has leased four water bombers this year to assist in combatting the blazes. TOTAL OVER COO In Quebec, more than 600 fires in May destroyed about CO square miles of forest, but rain has dampened most of (lie dry areas. A lands and forests depart- ment spokesman said the north- western region of the province was hardest hit and human neg- ligence was the cause of most fires. But several were started by the overheated brakes of trains throwing bits ol hot metal into the woods. The chance of forest fires In the northwestern region of On- tario rated as iiigh to ex- treme early this month with the northeast rated moderate to high and the south low to mod- erate. The province experienced sev- eral bad fires during the dry month of May, although exact numbers were not immediately available. The worst was a blaze in Dion Town- ship, 85 miles southwest of Kirk- land Lake. In 1071 acres of Ontario forest was destroyed, with a loss of about Tile government is depending in water bombers and helicop- ters to play a big part in fire- fighting and has purchased some as well as leasing. Also ready to assist on a mo- ment's notice are 135 fire crews of five men each. The groups remain together during the sea- son and are prepared to travel to trouble spots. CASINO CAPS FROM PEPSI.
