PHONE 328-7121 "Do you have a spare pair of gfann for holiday Overtime vetoed iii county In a close vote, the County of Lethbridge has vetoed a re- quest that its two public works foremen be paid overtime for work on weekends and holi- days. But referring to the narrow rejection, councillor John Mur- ray said thin edge of the wedge is in they know we're weakening." Overtime pay to foremen has been a bone of contention on a number of occasions, but coun- cil has so far held fast. Foremen with the county make per year. They arc in charge of crews which be- long to the Canadian Union of Public Employees and are en- titled to overtime pay. County secretary Bob Madill said overtime is kept to a min- imum and must be authorized ahead of time. Councillor Henry Numml said the two foremen knew that they did not qualify for extra pay for extra hours when they accepted employment. "We hire by the year, and and that includes Saturday and he said. "No councillor Steve Slemko shot back. "Saturday and Sunday are extra." Councillor Miro Tomasta said when men are called out on a weekend to deal with an emer- gency, "they should be com- pensated for it." Reeve Dick Papworth voted against authorizing overtime to foremen, breaking a tie vote that pitied Councillors Tomas- ta, Slemko and Jim Nicol in favor of paying overtime, and Nummi, Murray and 0. E. Wobick against.

Hud- son of Lethbridge Ihinks pen- alties for the illegal possession of marijuana and other such halucinalory drugs by a person in a motor vehicle should bo more in line with the same of- fence when alcohol is involved. In a new court policy initiated by the judge in magistrate's court Friday, three Lcthbridge and district men were ordered to turn over their driver's licences to a probation officer for three months, each was also fined and placed on proba- tion for two years. "When a person is convicted of impaired driving where al- cohol is involved he loses his driver's licence the fine for open liquor in a car is also harsh everyone agrees drugs like marijuana obscure all the senses persons guilty of having drugs in a car present a possibly terrible he said. Sentenced alter pleading guil- ty to separate charges of illegal possession of marijuana (while in a motor vehicle) were; James Douglas Greeno, 18, of Wrentham; Eugene Kie- ster, 17, of 632 10th St. S. and Gary Brian Yoshinaka, IB, of 1033 20th St. S.

Everytime you turn around, the weather's changed, but it's changed at all the right times for us. "People have been very good to us. We needed a Citroen, a French luxury car, for the film.

Genetic counselling urged bv conference delegates By RICHARD BURKE Herald Staff Writer Genetics counselling has now become an accepted practice with services offered across Canada to detect genetic dis- eases. Scientists stressed the im portance of counselling often the past three days during the annual meeting of the Genetics Society of Canada at the Uni versity of Lethbridge. Genetic counselling helps i couple weigh the chances o! their having deformed or men tally retarded children, Dr Nancy Simpson said Friday. Dr. Simpson, a biologist from Kingston who specializes in hu- man genetics, counsels couples on the seriousness of the defect and the risks involved in hav- ing the child. The couple must then make the decision, balanc- ing the facts with the desire to have a child.

Much of her counselling is done with couples who have a family history of muscular dys- trophy. It is not practical to dp gene- tic tests on large portions of the population, Dr. Simpson said. Although a large number of genetic diseases have been identified, rare. most are relatively Dr. Simpson suggests If a child is found lo have a disease such as muscular dystrophy or hemophilia, the entire family should be tested early to deter- mine tfie probability of inheri- tance. Geneticist prefers abortion to severe-handicap births Abortion is probably moro ethical than allowing a severely handicapped infant to be born, Dr. Margaret Thompson, 1972- 73 president of the Genetics So- ciety of Canada, said here Fri- day. "So mucn suffering, unhappi- ness and pain" is caused by severely handicapping dis- orders in children, "that they are negative in terms of qual- ity of Dr. Thompson said. "The right lo life is meaning- less unless it goes hand-in-hand with a great number of other rights, such as the right to lealtb, the right to some kind of normal role in society, the right to a full and productive she said. Dr. Thompson is senior staff eneticist at the Toronto Sick Children's Hospital and a medi- cal biology professor at the Uni- ersity of Toronto. She said medical science and other human aids have altered he thinking on "natural selec- ion" and "survival of the fit- est" when applied to liumans. Parents can now select icalthy children by using such medical aids as genetic coun- selling, she said. Tests can be done on preg- nant women to determine if the developing fetus has any ab- normalities. The decision to have an abor- tion in the case of abnormalities must be made by the parents, Dr. Thompson said.

Stabbing suspect may be in district Lelhbridge city police have been alerted to be on the look- out for one of three suspects being sought by the RCMP for questioning concerning the early Thursday morning stab- bing death of Frank Irwin Mott, 65, of Cranbrook. Mott was discovered dead In his Cranbrook cabin by neigh- bors who had become suspic- ious of an unusual window blind arrangement Thursday. A member of the Cranbrook detachment of the RCMP said the Mott car had been noted leaving the residence "in great haste" at about 2 p.m. Thurs- day. The car was later discovered in a roadside ditch about 30 miles southwest of near the small community of Scientists seek tvheat resistance Scientists at the Lethbridge Research Station are hoping to prevent the spread of two wheat diseases common in southern Alberta. Dr. Ruby Larson, cytogenetl- cist at the research station, said at the Genetics Society of Can- ada meeting here that she and Dr. T. G. Atkinson have recent- ly found a resistant genetic characteristic. A hereditary characteristic ol wheat grass, resistant to the mite, has been isolated, Dr. Larson said. The next step is to isolate the chromosome wliich carries the resistant character- istic and attach it genetically to a regular wheat plant, she said, Once attached, the resistant characteristic would continue through future generations of wheat. The diseases, wheat streak and wheat spot mozaics, cause serious viruses in growing wheat, cutting down the yield.
