Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta FrW-y, May 4, 1973 THI IITHMIDGI HWAIO 13 Ottawa asked to re-open terminal EDMONTON (CP) The use of the National Harbor Board's Number 2 terminal in Vancouver to handle Prairie specialty crops has been urged jy the Alberta and Saskatchew- an governments. Fred Peacock, industry and commerce minister, said yester- day the federal government has >een asked to re-open the ter- minal, or at least to stop the current dismantling, until a easility study can be complet- 3d. Both provincial governments lave asked C. D. Howe Western '.Ad., a consulting firm, to con- duct the study. Mr. Peacock said the termi- nal could be used to handle specialty crops grown in Alber- a and Saskatchewan and im- >rove efficiency at the port. The federal government claims the cost of renovating the terminal would be exces- sive, he said. Loading cranes ilready have been taken down ind ship berths adjacent to the tier are being filled in. Hooded witness An unidentified hooded witness appears in Wash- ington before the Senate Select Committee on Small Business hearings on the fencing system of stolen goods. Controls placed on diseased trees OTTAWA (CP) Britain has ordered tough new restrictions on hardwood elm imports fol- lowing reports that a virulent form of Dutch elm disease has been carried into the country on Canadian logs. Government officials con- firmed yesterday that Britain has "interpreted" formerly lax import rules in a stiff way whioh makes elm logs a re- stricted item. But they say there is no proof yet that the logs carried a new strain of the fungus. The to worth of logs shipped annually to Britain by two or three Canadian com- panies now must be stripped of their bark, dipped in an in- secticide or boiled to remove diseased spores. The British ad- miralty uses these logs to build ship decks and bulkheads. British forestry commission scientists recently concluded that four of 20 elm logs shipped to Britain from Toronto in CAREERS CITY CLERK CITY OF GRANDE PRAIRIE (Pop.

The disease has killed nearly million trees in Britain in the last two years. Tree experts there say the germs almost cer tainly were imported from North America. DENUDES BRITAIN The new, virulent form o: Dutch elm disease, which has denuded some areas of southern Britain of the tree, first ap peared there in 1965. Ironically the disease first entered North America from Europe in the 1930s, when Britain had an unu- sally severe outbreak. Since then, however, the Brit ish form of the fungus has be come less of a problm. But the North American by the native bark beatle, dif ferent from the European bark beetle which brought the dis ease to remaine< aggressive. The British forestry cornmis sion says re-importation of the disease has caused the lates damage. J. M. Mulders of the federa plant inspection and quarantine branch, said in an interview that before the January ship- ment, elm logs were neither in spected nor certified: before they left the country. There were not British regulations prohibiting the importation of logs. He said the agriculture d- partment did not agree with Britain's new stance, but it has agreed to comply with the bark removal and chemical spray order by issuing inspection cer- tificates. Court orders reinstatement CALGARY (CP) The rein- statement of 10 truck owner- operators who were laid off last month by Midland Superior Ex- press Ltd. was ordered yester- day by Alberta Supreme Court. An injunction was granted to the Calgary local of the Team- ster's Union. Mr. Justice W. J. C. Kirby said the order is to be in force until the Canada Labor Rela- tions Board makes a decision on the union's bid to become certified as the tractor owners' bargaining agent. The company, owned mostly by Canadian National Railways, said the men were laid off be- cause it is switching to rail piggyback on long hauls. The laid-off men own tractor units which pull the mid- land trailers. They had com- plained that without work they would be unable to meet truck purchase payments of to monthly. ARABSINSURFD JERUSALEM
