Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 23, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta to - THi irrHBRIDGC HERAIO - Tuesday, June 23, 1970 _. Dirty Photo Contest U may not be the eantest to aid aJl contests, but its topic could be vital to this society's future: iske a dii1:y picture of pollution and win a nice, clean prize. The contest is sponsored by an ainti-poUutivTt organization in Edmojiton known as STOP: Save Tomon-ow - Oppose Pollution. It is open to evei-y resi-demt of Alberta. STOP officials are urging everyone with a camera, from picnickers aiid campers to professional photographers, to take pictures of eveiy example of pollution they see. and enter the results in the "dirty pictm-e contest." The purpose of the contest is to gatlier pictorie two ma.jor systems of transport used are pipelines ovei-land and giant tanker ships on the oceans. Both systems ai-e fraught deadly to Ufe, is contained in relatively fragile ship bulls or pipelines. Experience in the past two years has shown just how easily ruptures in these systems can occiu". Steps are being taken to with peril: oil. which can be guard as much as possible against spills, both because they are expensive to the companies in terms of loss and cleanup operations, and because they are disasti-ous to ecology wlwever they occur. But nothing is being "done to find better ways of cleaning up Sewage Plant Tenders Set Tenders are expected to be oaSbed Wednesdiay for building aotual structure of the cSity's secondary sewage plant. Total cost of the project is stemabed at $3,535,000. Ooundl bias aiiready ap-pixrved borrowing of the neces-aacy money, with the exception �rf $1,135,000. A bylaw authorizing Vt� remainder was given first reading last week. TIhe plant is to be io opera-ttnti eaky next summer. Vote Called On Parking A vote will be taken Wednesday at a meeting of the Down^ town Businessmen's Association on the question of free Saturday afternoon parking. Bill Baiter, association presi-ttent, said he doesn't foresee amy real problems in the implementation of the plan. A recent telephone survey indicated' the membei-s were in favor of carrying the costs of the scheme and most of the arrangements have been worked out with the city. If formal approval is given Wednesday, all that would remain would be the working out �rf final details with the city manager. Under the plan free parking would be provided at onp-hoiu-meters in the downtown area.

D. Stewart, president of the Lethbridge Community College. The pai-ks and recreation commission bad an opportunity to take a look at the farm on a recent tour of recreational facilities in the city. There was general agreement among the commission memy bers that the site was well suited for the purpose and that the potential of the project was almost unlimited. One of the aims of Dr. Stewart's farm is to provide a setting for the farm animals that are fast becoming unfamiliar to today's youngsters. If the reaction of the commission is any indication, this aspect of the farm should be a huge success. One of the highlights of the tour was a disorganized group of young pigs, about two months old, that scuiTied about as the members were toiuring the farra. They even managed to get imder the tour bus as it was leaving, foi-c-ing the driver to get out a/1 shoo them away. There was also talk of baking a "quick horseback ride". The farm is currently playing host to about 20 horses being used for the college's horsemanship course. Other ammals already in residence include a marmot, two black gophers, a skunk (which the commission was assured had been de-scented), and about six beavers tlvat inhabit the steam running through the farm. Additions to the animal population are being made from time to time. Dr. Stewart said he had talked v/ith officials at Elk Island Park concerning the possibility of obtaining some wood buffalo. First priorit>' will be given to animals native to Western Canada, such as elk, white tail deer, moose and antelope. Other, more exotic animals, may be brought in later. ( J rain Quota The Canadian wheat board has announced a grain delivery quota of Ihi-ee hu.shels, effective immediately, at Broxburn, Carmangay, Champion, Peacock, Rosemary, Stavely and Warner. mals to be kept in cages near a row of trees on the nortli edge of the farm. Domestic farm y i-mais amd a bam will also be in this aa-ea. Construction of the necessary cages is underway, accoi-ding bo Dr. Stewart's own ideas on how cages' should be built. Dr. Stewart explained to the commission that standard zoo cages have a wire mesh floor, v,bile he felt the animals should be allowed to come into contact with real earth. His cages eliminate the wire mesh, but to ,prev6nt the animals from digging their v;ay out a concrete i foundation extends four feet into the ground. Dr. Stewart admitted that some special precautions would have to be devised for badgers. Their cages would probably IP have an earlJh-covered conoi'ete floor as well. Fencing of the outer perimeter of ths farm has now been completed. About two miles of seven foot steel mesh fence were required to do the job. Dr. Stewart said the farm may open sometime in July or August with the ammals- it now has, although it will likely take a year or two to get it "all fixed up." GAME FARM RESIDENT - One of the first animals to take up residence at the game farm being built south of the city by Dr. C. D. Stewart is this young skunk. His neighbors include a marmot, several rabbits, two black gophers and one albino gopher. His brand-new cage is one of two built on the farm by Dr. Stewart's staff. Eventually oil the smaller animaU will be housed in similar cages near the centre of the farm Future visitors may ask a question that was o fsome concern to our photographer - yes, th� skunk hot been desoer>ted. the spills that do happen. Dr. Doug Stephen, a wilderness expert appointed by the federal government to supervise the Athabasca Delta Task Force charged with cleaning up oil fi'om the Great Canadian Oil Sands Ltd. pipeline break, insists something must be done immediately. "We .just don't know enough �yet about what to do," he said. "All we know is what to do under given circumstances at a given time of year - and these solutions likely won't work the next time." And Dr. A. R. LeFeuvre, a federal government officer who was also involved in the Cheda-bucto Bay oil spill cleanup operations, said following a stud'y at Fort Chipewyan that some sort of instant response system had to be established to combat oil spills. He visualized a "flying force" of experts co - ordinated by the federal government and ready to move imimediately to any-wliere it was needed. A problem, however, arises fi-om federal - provincial responsibility splits; such a task force could only act wliere federal Ci'own lands were involved, or when a provincial government asked for help. "But eventually I'd like to see a total umbrella in all 10 provinces and the north, capable of handling any kind of pollution that arises." he said. Dr. LeFeuvre said a special field manual is being prepared describing conditions at every serious oil spill that has so far occurred amd listing solutions used to combat them. Tlie manuals will be readily available, and particulai'ly to "predesignated individuals in potential problem areas - people who could take immediate action when an emergency happened." But, as both Dr. Stephen and Dr. LeFeuvre said, the only solutions that have been developed have been for specific circumstances, and not enough is j known about the effects oil has, ] or how best to absorb or at! lea.st stop it. . Captain Ken Newnan, a Ca- ; nadian Forces officer and e.gi-neer wlio was in charge of government work force operations at Lake Athabasca and also worked on the Cbedabucto Bay spill, said the sensible thing to do would be to experiment before even more - disastrous spills take place. "There are a number of rivers in Canada whose courses are going to be changed due to local dams or other projects," Capt. Newnan said. "We should be using them while we can, pouring oil into them on a controlled basis and tiding out various systems of cleanup to see whst works be.st. '�.^nd conditions could be varied as much as possible-the area wotild be about to undergo substantial change anyhow, so nothing would be harmed. "But If we don't do something like that, we're just going to continue to experimerit eveiy time a real emergency comes up-and obviously, they're going to haMjen in increasing Dumbew." treasurer and Mrs. Verna Newton secretary.
