Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Friday, November 5, 1971 You Ask Me By IARRY BENNCTT QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furnilurn Bldg. PHONE 328-7614MI Tin1 niytli ui Atlantis may yd come nlivi1' nf the coastline of Western Canada and the United Stairs may soon offer mule tcsliir.eny to the futilily of Hie Vmtttl Stales and its ever incrcasir.g desire to ereate and honor "hill tmf." The 'Hint) test on Amchitka may have sonic doffiL-ive signilicanci-, but not lo those who function in the realm (if reality. Despite the protests from major world jxnvcrs, official protest.-; from neighboring countries and a deluge of tele- gram-. from coum-ned individuals, the United States scorns bent on the pa Hi of irresponsible and irrational action. It seems hypocritical that Ihe leader of the so-called finds it necessary to flaunt his toys to Ihe pcs- sihle detriment of Hie persons and environment bo presumes lo protect. Tlie and ecological arguments may bo based more en emotion than fact, hut the long-range diplomatic effects could be irreparable. The Amcliitka test is an extension of tlx; apparent ap- proaching isolatiunist policy of the United States as reflected by Hie ID por cor.; surcharge and the startling cessation of foreign aid a political embarra.ssrnent in the United rVaticns. The isolationist policy is precipitated generated by tire obvious overbearing intrusion of the "military mind" into the formation of governmental policies. The geographical location of the proposed test invites several interesting speculations: Do Ihe continuing nuclear tests by the U.S.S R. justify those of the United States, cr is the game of nuclear "oneup- manship" a ceaseless bad cycle? If the explosion is so safe why not test it in Nevada, the site of all ether recent U.S. underground nuclear detonations? Would the United States calmly sit by and allow the V.S.S.R.. Cuba or Canada to test a device of similar magni- tude so near its shoreline? If, in fact, the explosion is so safe and the effects so small, noes the United States still have the right to act with indifference to the pretests and fears of its neighbors? How can the United States speak of nucloar control and peace when they are testing yet another devastating ''kill If an ecological or geological disaster results immediate- ly or shortly after the "objectionable toy" test, will the Uni- ted States admit iis responsibility, or will it continue blithely on its path of egocentric hypocrisy? How v.-ill the radioactive waste left in the huge cavern after the explosion be treated: how long will it last and how will leaks lw prevented' If the blast unexpectedly vents itself, what protection or recourse do the surrounding countries have? It seems ironic that the weapon being tested a ground to air anti ballistic missile warhead designed to vaporize enemy warheads before they reach the U.S. will be deploy- ed on the Pino Tree ''defense" line on tire Canada-U.S. bor- der. If Hie offensive weapon is ever used, it would be detonated over Canadian territory and our country and people would suffer the ill effects of the blasts and fallout. 11 seems reasonable In speculate the only thing which could prevent the United States from continuing its paranoic power displays would be a major disaster such as the shat- tering of the San Andreas fault in California and the total destruction and submersion of large portions of the west coast. The worst feeling which appears to have resulted from the ill omened decision on the part of the president of the United States to continue to play the irrational overkill and "my toys kill better than yours" game seems to be a sense of utter futility. Futility on the part of national scientists, diplomats, environmentalist groups and individuals about how Hie United States can be stopped from its path of possible world destruction immediate if the explosion triggers it or long range if its policies don't radically change. There seems lo be no practical or reasonable answer, just an overbearing fear of what the United States might decide to do next. if irri i J UNIQUE firefighters Ralph May and Larry undetermined cause nearly aborted one of his treatments.

Bennett Photos City firefighters essential during power loss No licences sought By LARRY BENNETT Staff Writer The southeast Ijethbridge I electrical power failure dyy night was responsible for 1 a unique emergency response i by city firefighters. The power failure occurred j while Donald Muir, 2210 23rd St. S.. was in the middle of a critical medical treatment. connected to a kidney machine which requires electricity. Firefighter Ralph May responded to a call from Mrs. Muir who said she would have to disconnect her husband from the machine if the power could not be turned back on. In order to provide the rr.uch-needed electrical Hay rushed to the Muir home with one of the fire department's portable gas-powered electric generators. He was assisted by firefighter Larry Mead. Mrs. Muir said If the power had not been provided within four minutes of the firefighter's arrival, her husband would have had to undergo two treatments to alleviate the affects of the one aborted by the power failure. "I had no idea the firefighters had the facilities to do all said Mrs. Muir. The kidney machine in the Muir household is the only one in southern Alberta and is one of the few in Canada and the United States in a Mrs. Muir said the machine is the property of Uie United Slates government. The machine and its operating expenses are supplied to Mr. Muir because he is a retired major of the United States Marine Corps and his disability is service connected. Mrs. Muir said her husband was the only American military man to have such a machine in his "other persons requiring the same treatment rr.ust go to she i I 'Palmer Ranch cattle sales 1 The Canadian cattle industry saw many firsts, including a I record price, whon Palmer j Ranch sold 440 cattle in excess Thursday.

A government comittee, led by Calgary MLA Ron Ghitter, i.s currently studying provincial liquor legislation with a view to making some changes. Mr. Ghilier said priority is being given In licences for Uie Jubilee Auditoriums and uni- versity campuses in Calgary and Edmonton. He said his committee will make an immediate recom- mendation that liquor licences be awarded to the government- owned auditoriums in Calgary and Edmonton. "This change can be made by order in council and I think we can deal with the question right he said. Lelhbridgc City Manager Tom Nutting, said there has never been any discussion about seeking a liquor licence for the city owned Yates Memorial Center. "I presume there would be some advantage to having one, but there has been no discus- sion on it so he said. "But I am sure the topic will be discussed at some fu- ture date.'' Mr. Nulling said perhaps the appropriate place for such a facility would be in the new arena auditorium.

K. A. SEAMAN, Assistant City Clerk. Commercial air freight in- bound lo Lcthbridge is ;i grow- ing venture, but freight ric- mand from the city leaves something to be desired. Walter R. 'Stubb' Ross, pres- ident of Time Airways Lid., ssid his airline handles about pounds of inbound ait- freight per month, but only a small percentage of that amount outbound. Mr. Ross said one of the rea- sons there is not much air freight leaving the city is the type of manufacturing. ''There are not too manv trailers going by air.'1 he said. Richard Barton, vice prcsi- 1 dent in charge of administra- tion, said the frequency of thc flights into Lethbridge aids the inbound freight picture. i "Especially in the park busi- ness, many firms have consol- idated their warehouses in ma- jor centres. To make up for tho increased distance, they slu'p by air for faster transport." he said. He said with the current 1 flight capacity into the city, I Time Air could handle five times as much freight each month and with the de Havil- iand Twin filter planes.
