Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 9, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Thursday, November 9, 1972 HIGH FLYING DESK Dale Morrison, vice-president of the Lelhbridge Flying Club, tests the new instrument flight simulator recently purchased by the club. The ma- chine's instruments are electronically and mechanically controlled to simulate actual flight conditions a pilot might encounter under instrument-flying conditions. The limulator may be programmed with tapes of varying degrees of difficulty to allow a novice pilot to become accustomed to instrument flying, and even an experi- enced pilot may refresh his ability. University seeks course ideas Ideas from the community are being sought fo- the formu- lation of public service courses at the University of Lrthbridge next spring. Those courses should reflect the needs of the community, says U of L continuing educa- tion co-ordinator Menno Boldt, "and we hope people within the community will indicate the kinds of classes they want us to otter." Most people don't realize that continuing education seeks the public's response and depends on community feed-back to maintain Its relevancy, Dr. Boldt says. This fall, 161 people register- LIKE PHOTOGRAPHY?

"A faulty furnace and the fumes and smoke resulting from it can give a lot of con- cern to a surprised says Letlibridge Fire Chief Wllf Russell. City Fire Inspector Doug Kometz suggests home furnaces be inspected and cleaned by a qualified serviceman and that oil the controls be tested, espe- cteUy the emergency shut-oft switch. In forced-air heating systems the furnace fan motor should also be inspected and oiled and the furnace filter should be cleaned IT replaced. Furnace flue pipes should be inspected to make sure they are free from holes, well supported and clean. "Lint or dirt-clogged filters, faulty furnaces and burned-out fan motors have caused prob- lems to 16 families this year. There have been no deaths or Injuries caused by faulty heat- ing systems. "Though very little actual damage has resulted to homes, the families have been very up- set and fbe crews have had to answer their alarms. Some may have resulted from the lack of an annual said Chief Russell. Chimneys "Chimneys should ba inspect- ed yearly for loose bricks or cracks and cleaned once a year when coal or wood is used for said Inspector Kometz. The area surrounding the fur- nace should also be inspected :o assure flue pipes are spaced :ar enough apart and away from flammable surfaces to prevent overheating. "Be sure enough air Is pro- vided to the combustion cham- ber of the furnace to allow it ;o work adequately and be sure there is enough ventilation around the he said. Don't allow trash, papers or other flammable articles to be slorcd around the furnace. If ashes have to be removed from .he furnace, store them in cov- ered metal containers. If fixed or portable space icatecs are used, keep them out of halls and away from doors or stairs where they might block escape if a fire occurs. "Be especially careful to keep such heaters away from beds, upholstered chairs, curtains and clothes he warned. Dangerous "It is extremely dangerous lo use gasoline or kerosene on coal or wood tires. "Never store gasoline so it might be mistaken for heater fuel. City fire regulations pro- hibit gasoline being stored in the house. "If an electric heater is to be used, check the capacity of the electrical line leading to it, don't overload the line by plac- ing a higher amperage fuse than called for in the system and be sure that any electrical heater has been inspected and passed by the Canadian Safety Association Inspector Kometz said. All heating units, either fixed or moveable, require frequent cleaning and annual check-ups, Including inspection of electri- cal cords, fuel lines and flue pipes. Oil expands Avoid over-filling when fuel- ing oil beaters. "If the fuel oil is cold, take special care and re- member, as the oil warms it ex- pands and could cause burner flooding, resulting in a danger- ous said the inspec- tor. Never fill a portable heater while it is burning or still hot. Wipe all spills as soon as they occur. "Don't buy liquid fuel heat-1 ers that are easily tipped over and don't keep any that are no longer sturdy. Keep all heaters, liquid fueled or electric, he said. Fireplace "If there is a fireplace In youT home, don't use it until you have inspected the chimney and damper. Make sure an ap- proved fire-screen is in front ol the fire place at all times when in use. Transport ashes from the house in a metal container with a he suggested. Fire Chie! Russell reported one local home suffered minor damage to a fireplace wall caused by a faulty chimney section. "Extremely cold weather can adve-sely affect even the best designed fire place If the air in the chimney Is not slightly warmed first. This process is called drafting and consists of inserting a piece ot burning newspaper into Hie chimney neav the Hue. "If a fire place is not prop- erly drafted an airlock may oc- cur which will prevent the warm air and smoke from the fire from rising and force the smoke Into the said the chief. Bedtime Special care with heating units at bedtime could save the shock of awakening to a fire, reminded Fire Inspector Kcmetz. "Put all room heaters out or at the lowest setting possible. Leave dampers partly open af- ter banking coal or wood fires. Open windows slightly when fuel-burning heaters are being used in the bedroom to protect against carbon monoxide poi- soning while you he said. If fuel-burning heaters are al- lowed to operate in a room with no ventilation, a dangerous ac- cumulation of carbon monoxide gas from the exhaust will re- sult. This gas is odorless, color- less and tasteless and will form a strong chemical bond with oxygen carrying bodies in the b'.ood, robbing the blood of oxygen. Inhalation of too much car- bon monoxide will result In suf- Escape If the heating system does fail, don't use a blow torch or other open-flame heairng tool ol any sort for thawing frozen water pipes. "Special United Laboratories 'UL) or Canadian Safety Asso- ciation (CSA) electrical heating devices have been designed to be used for pipe It- spector Kometz said. The devices are long flexible heating elements designed to be wrapped around a frozen pipe and thaw it evenly. These de- vices are available in most hardware stores for various prices, he said. For anyone in doubt about Ihe heating system-safety of his home, the fire department will make a free home inspection and give a report on the fire safety condition, said Chief Russell. A7o charge There is no charge for the in- spection. It may be arranged by calling the fire stalion at 327- 3340. Canadian Western Nat- ural Gas Company also pro- vides a free inspection of all home gas appliances. This in- spection may be arranged {or phoning 327-1551 and asking for customer service. The inspectors will provide complete report and suggest any repairs or replacements of unsatisfactory parts that may )e necessary. Fire Inspector Kometz urged all city residents to take ad- vantage of the free Inspections and concluded, "It's good to be warm, but essential to be safe." Arrangements for home In- spections in the rural areas should be made through nearest fire department. Pageant underway at last Smith By MARLENE COOKSHAW Herald Staff Writer The first solid steps towards he enacting of The Sight, the Sound and the Fury are under- way. And organizer Frank Smith if the Southern Alberta Travel and Convention Association has et his sights at a week-long pening presentation in the ummer of 1973. The pageant, depicting the u'storical events marking the settling of the south Alberta area, is one that has been mull- ed over for several years. The main problem has been the ack of financial backing. Mr. Smith said Wednesday lat there were "signs on the orizon that things are going lo mprove" but added that he ould make no further com- ment. The show is the property the Association for Historic 'reductions, and Calgary has lown interest in producing the ageant should Letlibridge not in having it staged, Mr. mith said. The two five-feet searchlights necessary for staging tho show were purchased three weeks ago for and work is cur- rently being started on plan- ning the performances. The one-hour show, to be run after dark in the style of a mill tary tatoo, will be made up ol six to eight sequences enacted at the Fort Whoop-Up site in In- dian Battle Park. Seating ar- rangements will be arranged on the lower part of a coulee, with the lighls focusing on the fort from behind the audience. The organizers plan lo use mostly students for the 40 per- formers who will mime the ac- tions wliile a sound track pre- pared by members of the local broadcast media is run. Mr. Smith said that so many important historical events oc- curred in the urea that he could foresee "literaliy 15 years of shows without repeating a sin- gle episode."
