Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta May 3, 1973 THI LETHBRtDCE HERALD 15 Ready The Saturn V rocket topped by Skylab I sits on launch site at Kennedy Space Centre, Fid., ready for its May 14 liftoff.

Kerwin, will be lofted into space by a Saturn IB rocket. Government may reinstate DDT use Appeal made Gov't told to abandon part of ARR EDMONTON (CP) Alber- ta's mgressiLve Ccoserva-ive government mus1: consider abandoning the section of the Alberta Resources Bailway be- tween Grande Cache and Grande Prairie, provincial Lib- eral leader Bob Russell said today. Mr. Russell, in a news re- lease, said such a move would "save taxpayers money going to j cover Luge deficits." j The Liberal leader said he i still isle a public inquiry should be held to "determine legal re- sponsibility ior the astounding cost of construction" of the northern line and to determine the "responsibility ior the wash- out of 31 miles of track in that section." The 234-mile line, completed in 1969, lias operated at a Joss S.JK-C then, 'me Alberta govern- ment paid out a total of million to the railway and an- nual debt changes aie mil- lion. lii June, 1972, floods washed out the long section and, suuse- suusfcquui'ijy, Canadian Na- tional Railways, who built and operate the iini, agreed with the province to restore the sec- tion at a cost of more than million. Estimates of the dam- age ranged between million and million. Mr. Russell' said he has rec-; ommended the govenunent con- i sider the sale of the 12-mile por- tion of the line between Grande Pairie and the Proctor and Gamble pulp mill to Northern Alberta Railways. "We should also move ahead with Upgrading the road be- tween Grande Paririe and Grande Cache to allow farm produce such as eggs, milk, and meat from the Peace River block access to the Grande Cache market." Mr. Russell said the province should upgrade the road "re- gardless of the ultimate deci- sion respecting the Alberta Re- sources Railway." By DOUG SMALL OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment will move soon to rein- state the lethal chemical DDT for use by mouse ex- terminators, a senior agricul- ture department official said Tuesday. E. R. Houghton, head of the department's control products section, said changes in severe restrictions on the use of the pesticide announced late in 1969 will' be announced hi two or three weeks. Ths chemical will still fall into the restricted category, but authorized mouse killers will be able to use it as a "tracking powder" to sprinkle on mouse mas. Mice, like many fish and bugs, die when they eat it. DDT was being reir.stituted because exterminators had not been abls to find a substitute killer thr.4 worked as well. Mr. Houghton told about 50 delegates to a pest controllers convention here that the chem- ical would be phased cut of use when substitutes are found. Th pest controllers, or "ap- plied ecologists" as they call themselves, greeted Mr. Hough- ton's announcement with glee.

They, like many concerned with pest control and crop produc- tion, have mourned the viitual ban on the bug-and-post killer. But one delegate quickly pointed out that "we'll now have a problem of supply." Since the government moved to cut the use of DDT, the de- fence research board has been busily destroying stocks in a burning facih'ty at Suffield, Alta., near Medicine Hat. Nearly all remaining liquid stocks, the most common form of the chemical, have been gathered at Suffield were they are burned, cooled by water, and turned into dilute acid, car- bon dioxide water vapor. Small stocks, in powder form, however, are being maintained at selected depots across the mainly for use in the control of body lice. Since the virtual ban was an- nounced in 1969, DDT has been restricted for use in all but spe- cific cases, such as the control of some worms ar.d bats, and orJy under controlled condi- tions. Mice will now fall into this category. DDT was restricted mainly because the chemical caused reproductive failures, and in seme cases death, in some bird and fish spacis. It can be used to control in- sects and flys only in emer- gencies. Mr. Hougly.oa said the "new pattern" to bs established for DDT will continue most of the restrictions announced in The rules were needed to holp agriculture department people defend the use cf chem- icals against their health deportment and the wild- life sendee. The agriculture department knows how and where chem- icals are being used if they are sold on a restricted basis. Mr. Houghton said one of the reasons for the DDT ban was the "subtle and indirect effect" the chemical hnd on small or- ganisms in the world. It would probably never be completely reinstated, bat would bc'avail- able for limited use when it could be shown that "nothing eke works." for better seat belts PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. (CP) A Vancouver neurosur- geon has appealed for belter design in automobile seat belts and motorcycle crash helmets. Speaking on closed head in- juries, Dr. F. A. A. Durity told the 19th annual scientific ses- sion of the B.C. Medical Asso- ciation's Section of general practise that sudden, angular acceleration can cause exten- sive damage to the brain. Dr. Durity is a msmber of St. Paul's Hospital staff and is a clinical instructor in the iKuro- surgery department at the Uni- versity of British Columbia. Research has shown the brain is comparatively inflex- ible and can suffer from sheer stresses through its tissues, he said. Such stress and break can be caused by an automobile ac- cident when the head is sud- denly jerked backwards or for- wards. The lime will come, h-2 said, when car manufacturers will have to provide "something for the head" of drivers and passengers. Diagonal seat belts do not restrain the head and neck and therefore nre rather useless as far as possible brain damage is ctorecraed, Dr. Durily said. funds SAVE AS New diplomat LONDON (AP) Donald Maitland, press secretary of Prime Minister Heath, has been named Britain's new ambassa- dor to the United Nations, the i foreign office announced today.
