Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thvrxlpy, Mprch 15, 1973 THE UTHBRIDOE HEftAlD Snooping satellite spots nickel in West WASHINGTON (Router) A ratellite that has been orbiting the earth since last July 1ms found appar- ent nickel deposits in Western Canada and possible copper de- posits in Pakistan and has shown there are errors in maps _ of the Amazon River. The first Earth Resources Technology Satellite (ERTS) is taking man's most detailed look at the earth's surface as it cir- cles the globe 14 limes a day, sending hack a stream of data on what treasures lie within its view 575 miles below, and what man and nature are doing to the planet. Since the project was launched, ERTS has taken more than pictures, pho- tographing 90 per cent of the United Stales and 75 per cent of the earth's land cluding one-fifth of the Soviet Union and China. Scientists and space officials, discussing its work at a sym- posium, indicated it had proved of more Ulan had been forecast. They were particularly im- pressed by the promising out- look for ERTS surveys of re- mote regions in Alaska, Canada and other areas seldom flown over by planes. NICKEL DETECTED Scientists studying ERTS pic- tures told of these discoveries by the nickel deposits in Western Canada, indicated by the colors and contours of the terrain. area in South Africa likely to contain large reserves of nickel. are believed to be copper ranges in remote areas of Pakistan. Snapping pictures of the Ama- zon basin in Brazil, ERTS set the mapmakers back to the drawing boards when, accord- ing to preliminary reports by the head of Brazil's national space institute, it found: "The courses of the tribu- taries of the Amazon River very different from the ones shown in the most recent avail- able char's islands of than 200 square kilometres area exist which are not shown on maps small villages and towns are located wrongly on the maps by several tens ol kilometres. The first ERTS is due to func- tion for at least a year. A suc- cessor was to have been launched next autumn, but has been delayed until 1975 by budget limitations.

Church leaders ask aid for poor EDMONTON (CP) The pro- vincial government was urged yesterday to direct profits from the sale of Portuguese and South African wines toward self-help development projects in Southern Africa. The proposal came from rep- resentatives of five Canadian churches, who met the provin- cial cabinet 'at a breakf a s t meeting during a 10-day cross- Canada campaign to spotlight the plight of the poor. A brief said the government should match, dollar for dollar, money raised by individuals in Alberta to help the world's poor.

Philip Cline of Edmonton, chairman of the Alberta Con- erence of the United Church. Mr. Cline represented Dr. N. Bruce McLeod, moderator of the United Church, who return- ed to Toronto Tuesday night after a visit to Fxlmoaton. THIRD WORLD The church officials said In their brief that the prairie re- gion of Canada has represented the equivalent of a "third world and exploited." However, they said, Alberta has begun to use its reserves of coal, forest products, petrol- eum and natural gas to escape world status, as it now bargains for just royalties and controls in Canada and in the world marketplace." Albertans have a voice and a vole in Canada, said the brief, which is "nol true of the larger hird world of Asia, Africa and .atin America where two-thirds f the world's people consume ess than 10 per cent of the v o r 1 d s non renewable re- ources." ALBERTA LEADS The church leaders noted that ince Miles for Millions marches began in 1967, Alberta has led Canada in walkers, sponsors and dollars raised per capita. International voluntary agen- cies now receive about a year from Alberta_ citizens, said the church officials, who proposed that the government match funds raised by these agencies. They also recommended that Ihe services of provincial pub- lic works, health and education employees be donated on a short-term basis for specific overseas.
