Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGt June Show-Me-Day at Waterton Park first step toward master plan By MURDOCH MACLEOD Herald Staff Writer WATKHTON PARK It was "open park" Monday at Waterton as the national park service threw open its facilities to park residents and interested organizations in preparation for the master plan. Park superintendent Tom Smith told The Herald talks with the townspeople will be followed by preparation of planning alternatives over the next few months. Local input will take place at a series of working meetings, and the Waterton plan will be out next spring. Monday's Show-Me-Dav should stimulate conversation and ideas on the park's future, he said. At the park fire hall, Ken Slovack. secretary treasurer of the volunteer fire brigade showed visitors the workings of the alarm system and the fire truck. There aren't many fires, but on the last one the truck was manned within 30 seconds of the alarm. Mr. Slovack said most of the brigade's 22 members are national park employees. The federal government pays for the service, and members hope to get a six wheel drive engine with a superior snowplow for winter drifts next year, he said. Other fire protection equipment against forest fires is kept at the wardens' equipment building in the government compound. Pumps, axes, shovels, hoses and tanks are stored in one wing of the building. Mountain rescue equipment was on display as well, and a set of the rifle and dart equipment used to immobilize animals, including troublesome bears. "The same drug is also given to humans in says warden Brian MacDonald, "But they administer it a bit differently." The park stores, under the supervision of John Urton, have a continuing inventory of about The stores handle everything from gasoline to information pamphlets, and from electric equipment to uniforms for those personnel who wear them. Purchasing is based on current usage figures to prevent surpluses, and the allowable error is one quarter of one per cent, he says. The sign and paint shop is responsible for signs, 218 structures, nine miles of guard rail and 400 picnic tables. Supervisor Jason Attwell says the sign activities are now confined to maintenance, since all signs are made in the new regional sign shop at Banff. Every park used to have different signs but now signs in western parks will follow a pattern. All structures are painted every four years, and in the Waterton winds they need it, he says. the first presentation in the new interpretive theatre near Cameron Falls at the townsite was the big success of the day. Prose poetry on the natural features of Waterton brought the park's beauties home to the audience. Words were well matched with slides, and prose poetry alternated with straight descriptions of nature walks, car caravans and hikes organized by the interpretive service. The interpretive service exists to show visitors why the park is unique and there is one at every national park. Chief naturalist Duane Barrus said two shows a day would be run in the building, at 2 p.m. and p.m.. with more in future years if demand warranted it. Olson shoots down rumors that DES ban will be lifted By SWIHART Herald Staff Writer It will he a long time before any United States cattle will be allowed into Canada, says former federal agriculture minister H. A. Olson. Mr. Olson said the "vicious rumors'' about the lifting of the ban on U.S. cattle fed with the growth hormone diethylstilbestrol (DES) are completely unfounded. He said the rumors are originating from a meeting in Washington, D.C.. between sectors of the U.S. cattle industry and Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz. Mr. Olson said the Americans are trying to reach an agreement within their own industry that would allow them to initiate a certification program for their cattle. This certification would meet the requirements of the Canadian government and allow the U.S. slaughter cattle to again come into this country.
