Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Atomic accident news is hushed WASHINGTON -The United SUites government dis- closed Thursday that an acci- dent occurred Oct. 20 it its Oak atomic Facility involving highly secret experimental equipment. One experimental device was virtually destroyed and some others were an Atomic Energy Commis- sion spokesman said. Disclosure of the ac- which no one was reported hurt and the cause of which is not yet deter- held up for nine days because the project is secret and sensitive he said. The project is aimed at developing a new process for producing uranium for weapons and power plants. The spokesman explained that progress oh U.S. ex- periments with the the long been kept secret from any including friendly in part because the process if could be used to produce fissionable uranium for weapons. And he said AEC scientists felt they had to evaluate the situation before even disclos- ing that an accident had happened involving the ex- periments. The gas centrifuge process is one designed to separate fissionable Uranium-IBS from essentially nonfissiooaWe U- 238 in samples of natural uranium ore containing both types. If the process would replace the highly com- plex gaseous diffusion process for separating the two kinds of uranium. Describing the Oct. 20 acci- the AEC said an advanc- ed model of an experimental gas centrifuge was virtually destroyed test-stand And when .the model the AEC damaged a number of other units and support were no personal in- it added. mately four ounces of uranium hexa fluoride gaseous were releas- ed in the but there was no overex- posure of The commission also dis- closed that centrifuges have failed previously during the screening but those failures did not significantly affect operation of other It said a special AEC com- mittee is investigating. 4lberta plans amphitheatre for Spokane world fair EDMONTON A small natural amphitheatre on Canada Island will be Alberta's main contribution to the Spokane World Expo the Alberta government said Thursday.

Although no firm criticism surfaced some MPs have argued that if the motion is it might lead to abuse. A retired army for could be in a posi- tion to get a Job in national defence and end up being paid OTTAWA -CanaoW Unlted States air talks have stalled became of American demands that U.S. lir carriers operate in Canada free of certain Canadian tran- sport commission say informed sources. This latest crisis in the air negotiations has cropped up despite agreement on other major issues including a large share of Canadian charter traffic conceded to the U.S. It is for ex- that Canadian negotiators have agreed to allow American carriers to have 25 per cent of the Cana- dian passenger traffic to 25 per cent of the Hawaii business and 40 per cent 'of the remaining market which includes Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. At the Canadian carriers have almost all this and regional and charter air carriers have trongly opposed any .concessions. Washington has long sought an policy in Canada that would mean freedom to operate without charter regulations. Michael a top U.S. said in Washington Thursday that talks have reached a and that there are no imme- diate plans for resuming dis- cussions. Transport Minister Jean Marchand said in Ottawa that negotiations have not broken down and that he remains optimistic that a settlement will be readied. the two negotiating teams have agreed on a new package of regularly- scheduled air routes to be handed out to airlines in the two countries. Final approval of the routes settlement depends on a resolution of the charter issue. Mr. Marchand said Monday that he regards the routes agreement as more important to Canada than the charter is- sue. He hinted the government might make concessions to reach an over-all agreement. The transport minister held discussions Thursday after- noon with top transport department officials and Edgar transport com- mission president. The stumbling block to a final settlement of the charter issue is understood to be American insistence that U.S. carriers be freed of certain transport commission regulations. Earlier in the Washington objected to Cana- dian and in- clusive tour charter regulations. The primary rights rule gives Canadian air- lines the right of first refusal on Highis originating Canada and which U.S carriers are seeking. .The inclusive tour regula- tion requires American carriers to bring in one charter group from the U.S. in return for one from Canada. There are few U.S. inclusive tour charter groups flying into Canada but a heavy flow the other way. Inclusive tours include the price of ac- commodation and other ser- vices. A government source said the negotiations will continue as no one wants to break them off. we aren't going to sell the QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Mechanic Furniture Bldg. 328-7684 WANTED 100 loads of broken concrete chunks Excellent place for disposal at Lethbridge Country Club PHONE 327-2527 Meet Jamie Littlefeather ...he's proud.
