Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 11, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE HERA1D Wednesday, November 11, to restore natural beauty Falls given study NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) A joint Canadian-American organizaiion outlined tentative plans here to restore the natural beauty of the American Falls. The American Fails Interna- tional Board of the International Joint Commission said one plan is to remove at least part of the estimated cubic yards of rock that have piled up at the base of the falls. The tons of stone nibble that have piled vip at the base of the falls over the years are consi- dered by many to detract from their natural beauty. The study team said that also being considered is a plan to build a small dam 1'rom the falls, raising the water level and helping hide much of the rock at the base of the falls. The estimated cost of such a dam is million to S18.5 mil- lion. The proposals were outlined at a news conference by T. M. Patterson of Ottawa, a spokes- man for the f o u r -m e m b e r American Falls International Board, UP TO GEOLOGISTS Patterson said a final decision j on removal of the rock would j rest on findings by geologists on whether removing the rubble would weaken the stone face of the falls. Raising the water level in the Niagara River beneath the falls would cut the distance that the water drops over the American Falls and the neighboring Horseshoe Falls, which are hi Canada. Meanwhile, the Toronto and Globe and Mail quoted geologist T. A. Wilkinson of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as telling the conference that a rock-fall of the same magnitude as that of 1954 is almost certain to hit the American Falls in the next few years. Sixteen years ago tons of rock broke away from the face of the American Falls and plunged into Niagara gorge. The newspaper quotes Mr. Wilkinson as saying tte area is honeycombed with vertical frac- tures and has become partly de- tached from the main rock mass. The danger area is immedi- ately nest lo Prospect Point, where visitors take elevators down to board the Maid of the Mist ferry on the U.S. side of the river. Mr. Wilkinson is quoted as saying he is not able to deter- mine exactly when the roekfall might occur, but that it could happen next 10 to 20 years from now. ental treatment centre launched SAN DIEGO, Calif.

"It's going to be a tremen- dous success, we says the director, Thomas N. Busk. To give them a feeling of belonging, patients are called members and given a mem- bership card. They're asked to write out their treatment goal, then both patient and centre sign an agreement to work toward it The centre is sponsored by the school of medicine of the University of California at San Diego under a starting budget. The staff in- cludes trained psychologists and psychiatrists, nurses and student trainees. The charge ranges from nothing for persons with no in- come to fees equivalent to those charged by private psy- chiatrists. Husk says 80 per cent of Americans could benefit from such treatment at some time in their lives; and "about 20 per cent urgently need it at some point." One aim of the centre, he said, is to fill a need for persons who can't af- ford private psychiatry.
