Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Dateline Alberta Indians prepare brief EDMONTON (CP) Indian associations from the prairie provinces are preparing a wildlife management brief for presentation to their provincial governments, says Harold Cardinal. Mr. Cardinal, president of the Indian Association of Alberta, said a preliminary brief will be ready within a month and likely will stress co-operation between Indians and fish and game associations to ensure continued survival of wildlife. The brief will be subject to approval by chiefs in the participating provinces and will outline game management procedures to be followed by native communities. Men sprayed with acid GRANDE PRAIRIE (CP) Five men were taken to hospital Tuesday after an acid line at a cellulose mill ruptured and sprayed them with poisonous hydrogen sulphide gas. Garry Rutberg, 24, of Grande Prairie was reported in critical condition Wednesday in an Edmonton hospital, where he was taken by chartered plane after the accident at the Procter and Gamble Cellulose Ltd. mill. The other four men who inhaled the gas were taken to Grande Prairie Municipal Hospital. Strike notice served EDMONTON (CP) Strike notice has been served on Celanese Canada Ltd. by Local 9-666 of the Oil, Chemical and Atomic International Union, union spokesman Reg Basken said Wednesday. The strike is scheduled to start Friday. Local membership voted 95 per cent in favor of strike action. Mr.' Basken said the union is seeking reduction of working hours to 37.3 hours a week from 42. The Celanese plant jn Clover Bar, a county on the northeast outskirts of Edmonton, employs about 480 workers, he said. Union files complaint CALGARY (CP) The United Paper Workers Union has filed a complaint with the Alberta Human Rights Commission on behalf of 65 female employees at two local packaging companies. The union said Consolidated Bathurst Packaging Ltd. and Domtar Packaging Ltd. are paying female employees 30 to 35 cents an hour less than male workers doing the same jobs. Regional union Eric Dahli said the female employees are treated "like second-class citizens." Ad office planned EDMONTON (CP) The Advertising Standards Council of Canada expects to open a regional office in Alberta by June to keep an eye on the advertising industry in the province Bryson Stone, a member of the steering committee for the organization, said Wednesday the regional concept "will allow local consumers to have a local agency for objects to local ads." "All national ad complaints will still be directed to .the national body." Acreage controls changed WINNIPEG (CP) The Canadian Wheat Board Wednesday announced changes in the acreage restrictions on contracts for the production of Glenlea and Pitic 62 varieties of utility wheat. Effective March 18, grain producers in most areas of Alberta and Saskatchewan may apply to grow Glenlea and Pitic 62 under contract in any amount of 50-acre multiples. Previously, not more than 150 acres could be grown under contract by any producer. In Manitoba, contracts for Glenlea wheat will be available in amounts up to 350 acres for each producer. Pitic contracts are not being offered. The wheat board said the acreage restriction changes are designed to encourage production of as much Glenlea and Pitic 62 as possible for sale during the 1974-75 crop year. Under a limited marketing program, both utility wheat are being offered for export as food wheat at more than a bushel. YIELD POTENTIAL Under the contract program, producers are guaranteed delivery of bushels of Glenlea and Pitic 62 for every 50 acres under contract. The yield potential is about 25 per cent greater than traditional hard red spring varieties. The wheat board said producers will receive the initial price for utility wheat prevailing in the 1974-75 crop year as well as any final payment available at the end of the crop year. Glenlea and Pitic 62 produced under the program must grade No. 1 or 2 Canada Utility to be acceptable, and deliveries must be made during the crop year, when called by the wheat board. FRESH CHOLERA OUTBREAK FEARED w ty EflOl NAPLES, Italy (AP) Six months after a cholera outbreak in Naples, the garbage is back on the streets and so are the rats. Medical authorities warn that warm weather, only a month away, may bring a return of the disease, which took 15 lives in Naples and other Italian cities last summer. A visitor can see as much garbage and rotting fruit and vegetables on the streets as six months ago. Heaps of uncollected refuse are piled just around the corner from the main government offices. Blame and recriminations over the outbreak and methods used to bring it under control still poison the air. Little appears to have changed since last summer.
