Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - NAMED TO APOLLO 16 FLIGHT - These three men have been named by the tpace agency as the crew for the Apollo 16 mission to the moon, scheduled for next March.

Mr. Justice Bora Laskin, writing the reasons for the high court, said he was satisfied that the federal government had the constitutional power to give the wheat board authority over amounts of grains to be delivered to the elevators. The judgment will allow courts in the western provinces to clear up a backlog of some 900 alleged violations of the wheat quota system. The court decision was contained in its rejection of an appeal by Ejler Jorgenson, an elevator agent employed by the Federal Grain Ltd. at Charles-wood, Man. He was acquitted by a magistrate of unlawfully receiving 363 bushels of grain in excess of the existing quota from farmer Nick Friesen. The magistrate ruled that Parliament didn't have the power to set grain quotas. When the Manitoba Court of Appeal set aside the ruling, Jorgenson appealed to the Sr a Court of Canada. AUTHORITY IN ACTS Under the Canada Grains Act and the Canadian Wheat Board Act, Parliament is given authority over existing elevators and any to be constructed in future, years. Lawyers for Mr. Jorgenson argued that Parliament could not give itself such sweeping jurisdiction and that the elevators should come under provincial authority. Mr. Justice Laskin said Par- liament's jurisdiction over the elevators was found in the British North America Act. It says Parliament may make laws exclusively for such works declared by Parliament to be for the general advantage of Can sda even though located in the provinces. It was not necessary for Parliament to name each of the works, Mr. Justice Laskin said. Mineral industry given pollution aid Snowstorm clean up continues MONTREAL (CP) - The city was getting back to normal Monday following two snowstorms in four days which pushed the winter's total snowfall to 149 inches. Sunday's latest storm dumped seven inches of snow on Montreal Island, adding to the snow-removal f oree's monumental task of clearing up the mounds of snow left by Thursday's 20-inch blizzard. The record this century for snowfall on Montreal Island is 151.2 in 1907-08 and the all-time record is 174.3 inches in 1886-87. Several schools in Montreal and surrounding areas were closed today due to school bus cancellations. Motorists were still being asked by police to keep their cars off streets that needed to be cleaned by plows and blowers. DEATH TOLL 23 Police said Thursday's storm contributed to the deaths of 23 persons in Quebec-most of them by asphyxiation, freezing or heart attacks. TORONTO (CP) - A national advisory committee on the mineral industry, to work for pollution clean-ups with economic factors in mind, was announced Monday by resources Minister J. J. Greene. Environment improvement in the mining and metallurgical industries to date has been carried out largely on an individual basis, Mr. Greene said in a speech to a joint meeting of the Prospectors and Developers Association and the Toronto Canadian Club. "It is becoming evident that there now is a requirement for a national research and development effort emphasizing cooperative government-industrv programs specifically directed to finding more effective and more economic methods of pol lution control. "By sharing a common pool of knowledge and expertise, each company can progress more rapidly in solving what is esentially a local environmental problem. "In turn, the total progress made in solving all of these local problems contributes to the solution of the national prob lem of maintaining more uniform environmental quality across the country." The government has already sponsored a national advisory committee on mining and metallurgical research, grouping representatives from universities, industry and government, Mr. Greene said. SIMPSONS- Water debate set for parley Rolling Stones to roll away NEWCASTLE, England (Reuter) - The Rolling Stones pop group began a 10 - day "farewell to Britain" tour here before emigrating to the south of France. Leslie Perrin, spokesman for the group, said the Stones, led by Mick Jagger, are not turning their backs on Britain and denied recent press i reports that they were moving \ for tax reasons. ''The main j reason is that they like France tremendously." J CALGARY (CP) - The Canadian Water Resources Association announced here it plans a debate between Canadian and United States spokesmen on the export of water. Association directors said the debate, scheduled for Regina June 25-26 during the organiza-iton's annual meeting, would also include the transfer of water between rivers in Canada. They will also seek representation from each province, as well as the director of the Saskatchewan - Nelson water basin study, a massive review of water transfer projects' in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The directors indicated that more study of Canadian water needs must be done before water export can be considered. Association president J. H. Hare, a Winnipeg biochemist, said it will take several years to establish water needs and Canadians should not feel ob- EXPELLED - Dave Barrett, Leader of NDP party in B.C. Legislature, was expelU cd from the house for a week. The action was taken when he refused to take his seat during debate on the spending estimates of the attorney-general's department. liged to make a hasty commitment to the U.S. Other directors felt that if the U.S. was told flatly that Canadian water is not now available for export, it would be forced to make better use of its own water. Winnipeg lawyer Yude Hen-telaff, who has acted for northern Manitoba natives on a water diversion project, said environmental law in Canada is in "chaos." "X willingness on the part of Canadians to sell water, he said, will only allow the U.S. to postpone decisions on making better use of its own water and on setting goals for economic growth. Brittle bone treatment disclosed SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A possible drug treatment for the congenital "brittle bone" disease called osteogenesis imperfecta was reported here to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Children with the disease must be barred from normal play and sports because of the constant threat of fractures. Many are crippled from infancy. The head of the research project was Dr. Clive C. Solomons of Denver, associated professor of pediatrics at the University of Colorado Medical Centre. Solomons said a daily dose of magnesium oxide brought a pronounced drop in the rate o� fractures in more than half the children tested, apparently strengthening their bones. The disease is rare. Doctors at the academy's meeting estimated that from one out of 100,000 to one out of 300,000 | children are afflicted.
