Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Asbestos f ilm gives warning EDMONTON (CP) Res- trictions on the public show- ing of a film documenting the uses and dangers of asbestos may soon be lifted, Louise Swift, a director of Save To- morrow Oppose Pollution, said this week. She said STOP president Mary Van Stolk obtained as- surances this week from the British Columbia Labor Mini- ster, William King, that he would do all he could to have the film reclassified. Prepared for the television series This Land by STOP in 1911, the film was embargoed by the B.C. government after the Workmen's Compensation Board said it falsely claimed that the board didn't pay com- pensation to workers injured by the inhalation of asbestos fibres.

Mr. Rudakicuych said in an interview that the degree of in festation won't be known unti. next week when a survey of 8( different locations is conducted. "Last fall we conducted pre- liminary pupae counts in the affected by the Army worms near Fairview, Wan- ham and Peoria and countec 49 pupae per square yard. "Preliminary counts taken last week show the pupae win- tered well, but it's still too early to say how many acres will be affected."

SCREENING Mrs. Swift said the film was privately shown to about 75 Al- berta government officials April 6 and to the B.C. cabinet Monday. Provincial government and labor officials last week receiv- ed a STOP study of asbestos stressing a statement by Dr. Merle F. Stenton of the Nation- al Institute of Health that as- bestos is second only to cig- arette smoke among the known causes of cancer. The study said while the as- bestos has long been recogniz- ed as an industrial hazard, its dangers to the general public in forms such as children's clay, sprayed fireproofing and asbestos dust near construction sites, are not well known.

The announcement said the purchase includes Molybdenum deposits represented by com- pany claims, the shutdown mine and other facilities on the com- pany property. Operations were suspended by B.C. Molybdenum last year when they proved to be un- economical. of the doldrums. Trading was moderate. Resistance to New York has been eroding recently, and ac- tion hers paralleled New-York where conflicting economic and political news caused some wild market gyrations. Analysts attributed the early- week declines to a number of factors including the Watergate and Equity Funding scandals, fears of higher interest rates and uncertainty over inter- national currency values and balance of payments. The good economic news in- cluded continuing reports of im- proved corporate earnings, a slowing in the rate of wholesale price increases and some mild inflation controls. Analysts, however, are reluc- tant to predict how long the up- surge will last. FEAR INFLATION IMPACT Wood Gundy Ltd. says: "Without doubt, however, it is a dread fear of inflation and how to counteract it that is causing most concern. Any abatement of current pressures on food, commodity and other pricei would be construed most POM- lively." While analysts are optimistic about the flow of improved cor porate reports and say then are many bargains on the mar ket, they say poor investor psy- chology can inhibit a strong ad- vance.

BOX S.S.1-7-7, LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA By Thomas W.Schier LOOKING FOR A NEW DEAL ACROSS Ag minister seeks land compromise REGINA (CP) Agricul- :ure Minister Eugene Whelan says if a compromise cannot be reached with Saskatchewan within a week on the small 'arms development program, ;he federal government will mplement the plan without the wovince's support. Mr. Whelan made the state- ment at a hurriedly called news conference following a meeting with Saskatchewan Ag- riculture Minister Jack Mess- He said proposals were made at the meeting and if Mr. Mess- doesn't respond to them hin a week, the federal gov- ernment will go ahead with its program in Saskatchewan. FEDERAL PLAN The federal plan, through vhich farm land offered for ale would be purchased by the government and resold to neighboring farmers wanting o expand operations, conflicts with the province's land bank. Mr. Messer has said the main stumbling block in reaching agreement with the federal government concerns land put for sale. Saskatchewan's and bank wants first right of refusal on the property. The land bank leases the land to other farmers, giving prior- ty to sons and daughters of he original owner, while the ederal plan would sell the >roperty to other farmers wan- ing to create more economic mits. There are otner technical dif- erences between the federal and provincial governments tut they are less important. Mr. Whelan said several pro- losals were made to Mr. Mess- r and it was agreed that he be in contact with the federal minister within a week with a decision. 1 More worn 6 poker 10 Church seats 14 Keep (restrain) 19 Hydrocarbor compound 20 Slack 21 Profit 23 Body part 24 Gambling center 26 Mathemat- ical set elements 28 Holy ore: Fr. abbr. 29 Port of China 30 Currier's partner 32 Jacket 33 Sonny and Cher, e g. 34 Bicyclist need J7 Poor Dad..." 18 Lighter J9 Rt.-hand men 1 Light wood 2 Teacher of Stradivanus 3 Heating pipe 4 Wrapper abbr. 5 Western Indian 6 Mediocre 7 Actor Franciosa 8 Puts to good 9 Split up 10 Measured by steps 11 Gaboretal. 12 Card game 40 United Rebel angel 43 Head: si.- 44 Vanish 45 Hem in 48 Bridge snaftrer 50 Fur. 51 Raison d'- 52 Ethiopia's Selassie 54 Demand payment 55 Legislation of 1910 58 Headlmer 59 Writer Gardner 60 On with 62 Witticism 63 Estop 64 Cockney's dandy 65 Cockney's residence 66 Bridge bid 67 Animal hide 63 Spread 69 Sparkling 71 Expensive: French 72 Poet-singer 73 Concerning 74 Little island 75 Card game 77 Guevara 78 Deadly pale 81 Mooring place 82 Hebrides island 83 Intend to 86 Molt' 87 Fruit part 88 Impediment 89 Greek letter 90 Melville work 92 shooter 93 Hoosegow 94 Omen 95 Suck in 96 Child's goodbye 97 Shriver 99 Math, term 100 Football plays 101 Greek letters 102 Capacity units 103 Regal DOWN 13 Cocktail niade with brancv 14 impasse 15 Sanskrit school 16 Goren's milieu 17 Shrewd 18 Up and down toys 20 Source of illumination 22 Landed 25 Situations! analysis 27 Forthwith 31 Good-by.
