Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta .Wednesday, 9, 1973 LETHBRIDGE HERALD IS sporting mayor Mayor Jean Drapeau of Montreal ponders a point, while addressing delegates to the annual meeting of the Association of Canadian Advertisers in Toronto. He reiterated that the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal won't cost Canadian taxpayers a cent. He said that funds for the Games would be raised by the selling of stamps and coins, and the holding of a lottery. Canadian rocket to he launched By VICTOR IMACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA A Canadian- made Black Brant rocket is io be launched from a United Slates rocket range at Barking Sands in Hawaii on or about June 15. making the first time that the Space Research Facil- ities branch of the National Re- search Council has fired a rocket outside of Canada. The two-stage rocket is manu- factured by Bristol Aerospace Industries of Winnipeg. NRG mission controller Har- old Roberts of Ottawa be in charge of the launch. The prin- cipal scientist at the site will be Dr. Brian Wilson, of Simon Fra- ser University, formerly of the University of. Calgary where he conducted similar scientific studies as are being furthered by the Hawaiian launch. The Black Brant IV B rocket is expected to reach an altitude of 400 miles and will earn' a 200-pound payload. It will splash down about 200 miles off (he shores of Hawaii with the United States Navy in charge of safety arrangements. Total weight of the rocket is about pounds. It is over 37 feet in length, equipped with three fins and two motors, one for each of the two stages. Canada has its own rocket range at Churchil. However for this launch the scientists wanted to get away from the north magnetic pole and close to the equaier. Cansda has no location close to tlis equator consequently ncuotintion.s were npened up with l'ip United States Atomic Commission to utilize the range in Hawaii. There is a full moon on June 15 leading to the section of that date. By moving away from the pole the sci- entists from Simon Fraser who are primarilv interested in studying cosmic x-rays will be able to avoid electronic clutter. Half a dozen technicians from Bristol Aerospace Limited in Winnipeg will make the trip to Hawaii for the launch, there will be two NRC officials in- cluding John Aitken, chief of the Space Research Facilities branch and a group of scientists from Simon Fraser University. The University of Calgary is as- sociated with the studies for which the launch is being con- ducted. j Safeway easel I remanded to May 15 CALGARY (CD Canada j Safeway Ltd., charged under i the Combines Investigation Act with being a party to a mono- poly, was remanded to May 15 when (lie case came before pro- vincial court Tuesday.
