Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE ItTHBRIDGE HERAID WcdnescJoy, Marcti 14. 1973 Nelson trust sloivly going broke LONDON (OP) A subsUui- lial trust established by a grate- ful nation for tire family of Ad- miral Lord Nelson, one or Brit- ain's most illustrious heroes, is gradually going broke, now down to its last The Nelson trust was voted by Parliament in 1806 in apprecia- tion of the exploits of the admi- ral who died in the Battle of Trafalgar a year earlier, with- out a descendant. The present family now may claim only the income off (he remaining (about When the seventh Lord Nel- son, a bachelor, died last Au- gust at 78, his property was val- ued in probate at to be shared by two elderly sisters and his brother, the eighth Lord Nelson. In 1W7 the trust set up under the Trafalgar Estate Act was worth about It fell on hard times during the Labor government of the late prime minister Clement At- tlce which in 1SHO made the par- liamentary estate liable lor death duties for the first time. Since'then the fifth, sixth and seventh peers have died and the lax on thoir life interest has onl much of the fund. Apparently convinced thai the nation owed no debt to tile mod- ern-day auceslors of the greal admiral, the Labor government also abolished in 1SH7 the aannuti! pension provided in Uie 1800 act for the first Lord Nel- son's family. WHY SHOULD WOMEN GET STUCK WITH THE CLUMSIEST CARS? It's true you need space for the kids and the dogs and the groceries. But that doesn't mean you have to lug a giant station wagon around. With the rear seat down, the Volvo wagon has space in back for 67 cubic feet of kids, dogs and groceries. Or a 6-foot sofa. And space in front for a husband. But outside, the Volvo wagon is exactly the same size as the Volvo sedan. (That's about 3 feet less to park than the giants. And three feet less to dent.) Roc I A sense of proportion is one of many sensible things about Volvo. Others include 4-wheel disc brakes. Arear-window wiper, washer and defroster. And rear doors with extra locks the kids can't open from inside, so you can keep your mind on the road instead of the back seat. If all wagons were designed as sensibly as a Volvo, maybe women drivers would have a better name.

CP Hotels to keep Empress open TORONTO (CP) CP Hotels has no plans to close the Em- press Hotel in Victoria, D. W. Curtis, president and chief ex- ecutive officer of the company, said Friday. The manager of the 60-year- olc! hotel resigned Thursday and said in Victoria that the stately Empress might close its doors unless there is provincial gov- ernment and city assistance. Mr. Curtis said in a state- ment: "We have spent more than million in 1'ecent years to renovate the Empress, making it a modern facility while pre- serving its unique charm anri character. "While there is always room for improvement in the reven- ues being generated by the Empress Hotel, the hotel has shown a profit and we expect it to make an important con- tribution lo our hotel chain." Louis Finamore, ii'ho resigned zr- hotel manager and vice-pres- ident of the mountain and Pac- ific region of CP Hotels, said the Empress is an old, in- efficient hotel although it had made a small profit during his four-year sfewardslu'p. He did not say what type of assistance is needed to save tile hotel.

(P.O. Box pro- duces 18 million pounds of spag- hetti, macaroni and noodles ev- ery year. The dry pasta production is distributed from Thunder Bay to Victoria. The firm employs 70 persons full-time and two part-time. Capital investment in the Leth- brldge operation is million. The plant turns out more than two dozen pasta products including: cut spaghetti, long vermicelli, mafalda, lasagne, very thin spaghetti, regular spaghetti, macaroni, rigatoni, oats, stars, alphabets; lead rings, pens, clliows, twisted vermicelli, bows, turrets, mille fiore and others. Product is packaged in boxes or cello bags in sizes from eight ounces to five pounds. One specialty is macaroni and cheese dinner. PURCHASES The company purchases about pounds of flour and granules annually from Ellison Milling, egg powder from Winnipeg, myverol from Toronto (to keep spaghetti from sticking when cello bags from Montreal and Toron- to, corrugated cartons from Calgary, glue from Vancouver and Winnipeg, envelopes of cheese from Montreal. City taxes in 1972 were 700; power natural gas water, sewer and gar- bage local supplies and services million. Plant manager Brian Kuy- pers said he would like to see a corrugated box manufacturer located in Lelhbridge. Thous- ands of corrugated cartons and folded boxes are used every year. 1.0TSA PASTA The firm's annual production of 18 million pounds of dry pas- ta would fill enough semi-trail- er trucks to stretch five miles bumper-to-bumper. Most pro- duction Is shipped by semis but the company is looking at rail shipments for some products. Calelli was founded In Mont- real hi 1867 by a man bearing the same name. It made pasta products only. Later soup and pickle lines were added. About 40 years ago the firm expanded west to Lethbridge where an existing plant was purchased. In 1948 the present plant was built. Since then the operation has been expanded and upgraded. EXPANSION In 1970-71 a expan- sion program was undertaken to increase production and warehousing. John Labatt Ltd. of London, Ont. owns Catelli of Montreal. Catelli has two plants in Mon- treal which produce pickles, soups, spagehlti sauces and dry pasta products under the Catel- li and Habitant brand names. The firm's Toronto plant is similar lo the Lethbridge oper- ation, Another plant in Man- chester, New Hampshire pro- duces Habitant soups for the New England area. The making of pasta products requires few raw materials mainly flour and water. Flour arrives at the Catelli plant in Lethbridge in a huge stainless steel tank truck from Ellison Milling, just up the street. Catelli has dealt with Ellison Milling since moving to the cily, The specially processed dur- um wheat flour and granules are blown into two massive storage bins capable of hold- ing pounds of flour each. From there flour is automa- tically pumped to holding tanks above the pasta presses. FLOUR. WATER The flour is drawn as re- quired to the six presses on the floor below Ihe storage bins where it is mixed with water. A vacuum and auger process presses the dough through dies. In some cases, knives auto- matically cut the dough to the desired length. Noodles, for example, are made from a continuous sheet of dough aboul two feet wide. As the dough conies from the press it is rolled, lo the desired thickness. Rotating blades slice It into noodle width and other blades cut it to the desired length. SPAGHETTI The spaghetti die involves a series of holes side by side. As long strings of spaghetti dough extrude from the die, a rod catches it in the middle, a blade cuts it off and the rod carries the folded spaghetti through dryers on the first and second floors. The dough spends varying amounts of time in the various dryers 14 hours lor macaroni, 22 hours for spaghetti. At the end of the drying peri- od, the brittle spaghe.'ti, still folded over the rod, is laid horizontally on a table and run through a saw, resulting in nine-inch lengths of spaghetti which are tumbled into car- tons. U-shaped pieces of spag- hetti which curved over the rods are sent to a regrinding machine, sifted and reused for more pasta products. PACKAGING After the pasta products have dried and been tested in the company lab for moisture, bio- logical content and cooking fea- tures, they go through one of a number of packaging lines and then into storage for later ship- ment. While some of the packaging lines are almost completely automated, others require con- siderable hand labor. The macaroni and cheese din- ner line is quite automated. Folded boxes are automatically fed to a conveyor, Ihe bottom is sealed, a woman drops in a package of cheese, a revolving machine fills the box with macaroni, the lid is glued shut and the dinners are conveyed to a point where they are put into cartons. Lasagne, on the other hand, requires weighing and packag- ing by hand. OTCLLI CATCLLI Is the largest single macaroni manufactur- er in western Canada. Purchases over 95% of its raw materials locally. Has been serving western Canada for over twenty five yeart from its lelhbridge plant. 104 13th STREET NORTH LETHBR10GE PHONE 327-3343 ;
