Provincial Judge L. W. Hudson, who attended the two-day conference in Toron- to, said he hopes in time to see the medical and ligal professions working hand-in- gloye to correct violent anti- social behavior. The conference was "the beginning of something I've recognized for some years. While there will always be people who have to be pun- ished, there does exist an area where law and medical science meet on common he said. The idea behind the sym- posium, sponsored by the centre of criminology at the University of Toronto, was primarily to establish where tha medical sciences can be used to effect the rehabilita- tion of people before the courts. "There is no better protec- tion for society than com- plete Provin- cisl Judge Hudson comment- ed. Most jail sentences are not terminal, meaning that within a certain time a pris- __ oner will be back in society. Most of the topics discuss- viairm ed dealt with theory, and con- JUmier S VISlOn ference participants did not icceive any concrete infor- mation which could give them immediate help in de- termining if an accused is ex- hibiting anti-social behavior for medical reasons. "There was no training in recognizing the judge said. "It was only the first step into something which could develop." During a discussion on the "neuropsychiatrics aspects of violent behavior" conference delegates learned what-areas of the brain control behavior and how medical problems can modify a person's ac- tions. For instance, he said, a brain tumor or concussion can cause a normal person to act in violent ways. With removal of the tumor, or pressure, normal behavior can be restored. Although provision is now made under the Criminal Code only for psychiatric ex- aminations, Provincial Judge Hudson said he can foresee the day when a doctor could be called in to conduct a physiological examination.

PHONE 328-3388 city employee, Mr. Harris said a dark-colored, conical- shaped rock had been lifted out of the coulee 50 feet from current site under investi- gation. It was five feet long and six to eight feet in dia- meter, he said. It was then sunk into the Oidman river in construction of the powerhouse weir, he claims. Legend says early coal- miners and Indians are sup- posed to have laid down gifts of clothes, tobacco and food to the spirit of the "medicine Mike Mountain Horse, in a July 1935 edition of The Herald, explained its importance. In a vision a buffalo hunter near Lethbridge was visited by a medicine man and told, "My son. I am the rock you saw. I want you and your children to come to offer me peace offering at all times." This apparition appeared at night to the buffalo hunt- er. The day bsfore, he had chased an elusive medicine- pipe man sighted from afar, whose red painted blanket, face and hair were the dec- orations of his profession. But the hunter had found only a "solid reddish rock, resembling a man in a sitting the legend says. The last reported use of the stone was at a 1911 In- dian pow wow, when An- drew Staysko's uncle located it for the Indians. Even then it was covered by refuse, from the coal mines around it. Written records go back as far as the accounts of George M. Dawson, early Lethbridge geologist. He recalls hearing in 1881 that the Indians term- ed this area "Painted David Stafford witnessed the stone himself sometime around 1896. He called it "a block of iron stone placed in a buffalo It is believed the stone was either granite, the result of glacial action from the Cana- dian Shield, or red quartzite from the gravel deposits of the Rocky Mountains.

Newspapers blamed for Trail egg war By WARREN CARAGATA Herald Staff Writer The recent flare up in Trail, B.C. of the egg war was blown out of proportion by newspapers wanting to take a whack at that prov- ince's NDP government. The charge was made Thursday night in Lethbridge by B.C. Poultry Commission- er Bill Wood. He said all that was involved in the dispute was 113 cases of Manitoba eggs. "That's he said. Safeway sells that every day." However, the Vancouver Sun reported the number of eggs as which sounds like a lot of eggs, Mr. Wood said. The shipment was sold to a Super Valu store in Trail by Winnipeg egg dealer Bob Feldman but the eggs were seized by the British Colum- bia Egg Marketing Board be- causa they were not pur- chased through one of its li- censed agents. Mr. Wood told the annual banquet of the Southern Al- berta Poultry Council that the news media delights in telling people that boards are a big monopoly." Newspa- pers are out to cut the throats of marketing he said. He criticized the agencies for not doing an adequate public relations job in telling consumers that the market- ing Doards are as beneficial to the consumer as they are to the producer. After a fried-chicken dinner and a generous helping of chicken jokes to make a non- beliewr eat beef, the council members were told that mar- keting research has not kept pace with technological de- velopments in poultry pro- duction. "We've always got sur- pluses on our Mr. V.'ood said. "I can remember swearing about surpluses 20 years back." He said the problem is that poultry producers are very quick at taking advantage of new technology to increase production "but marketing is what holds us back." "I think the boards have to look at the whole marketing system." Research in this area is falling behind, he stated. He suggested, for instance, PHARMACY FACTS FROM O.

Howard Falkenbergh, chairman of the Alberta Broiler Marketing Board, Games group plans event at Bumaby The Southern Alberta Win- ter Games Society will spon- sor a Chuckwagon Breakfast during the Canada Games this summer in New West- minister-Burnaby, B.C. The society board of direc- tors decided Thursday to put on a breakfast rather than the traditional cocktail party held at the Canada Games by the host city for the next Games. A group of ex-Southern Al- bertans living in the Burna- by area has agreed to assist with the breakfast for ath- letes and the general public. The society also named two new directors. Rick McDonald of Bow Is- land will represent communi- ties in the County of 40-Mile. Gary Bowie, chairman of the University of Lethbridge physical education depart- ment, will work with the so- ciety sport committee. claimed the broiler Industry in the province is healthy, "but if the feed-men would stop raising prices "The rising cost of feed Is a concern to Mr. Falken- bergh said. Ed Smulders, president of the Southern Alberta Poul- try Council, said the price of soybean meal, one of the main ingredients in chicken feed, has risen to four times what it was last year, from a ton to a ton. "And if the protein ingredi- ent goes up, the others fol- low suit." Last year, he said, meat meal was selling at per ton, while this year, the price is a ton. During his year-end review of council activities, Mr. Smulders warned that power Li the council is starting to accumulate in a few hands, because "producers are not active." In other marketing boards, when the producer is doing well, his interest wanes, when markets are poor, pro- ducers become active, he said. "I hope this poultry council does not follow this plan."
