Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 14, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta The role of the Speaker of the House of Commons in a minor- ity government is to prevent the opposition parties from con- stantly backing the government up against a wall, says Marcel Lambert, a former Speaker. The next Parliament will be more difficult for the Speaker than the last one was, he said in an interview at Ottawa, ba- cause "the opposition has tasted blood." Mr. Lambert, Progressive Conservative member for Ed- monton West, was Speaker dur- ing John Diefenbaker's minor- ity government from 1962-63. Since then, the rules of the game have changed a great deal, he said. "At that time, the govern- MARCEL LAMBERT Speaker's role ment received more than its share of harassment." The question period, which was unlimited during Mr, Diefenbaker's minority govern- ment, is now restricted to 40 minutes, Mr. Lambert said. Dr. Joe Maclnnis, a medical doctor and diver, is aware that living underwater is a serious affair EO he is trying to inject some levity into his latest pro- ject in the Arctic. The doctor is heading a team of scientists and engineers par- ticipating in an exploration proiect to start Nov. 22. The ex- pedition will mark the first at- tempt to use an underwater manned station in the Arctic. To add a light touch to the mission, Dr. Maclnnis is hoping to use his loudspeaker system to relay some of his Moody Blues albums. A former president of the On- tario Agricultural College and a founder of the World Plow-men's Association were named post- humously to the Agricultural Hall of Fame at Toronto. Dr. William K. Keek, appointed college president in 1947, and John Arthur Carroll, who help- ed form the association in the early 1950s, were nanrad to the hall during ceremonies at the Royal Winter Agricultural Fair. Dr. Reek died in 1968. V E. K. Turner, president of the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, said in Regtoa a national policy to subsidize barley production may have to be implemented to prevent a major swing back to wheat acreage. In answer to reports that a barley subsidy program now is being considered in Ottawa, Mr. Turner said feed grain de- velopment was of "major con- cern" to the Canadian Wheat Board and the government's grains group. Chick sexor fast man at his job CALGARY (CPl The fast- est hands in the West could be- long to Hiroshi (Jim) Tomi- moto, a chick sexor who works for three Calgary hatcheries. It requires patience and good eyesight, and it's hard on the nerves because it's important to be as accurate as possible. Mr. Tomimoto guarantees 98 per cent accuracy, although he usually has 99.9 per cent. Any- thing loss than 98 per cent and he's fined, something that has only happened once in 31 years here. There are only about six other chick sexors in Alberta, 80 in Canada and 800 in the United States. The job involves inspecting newborn fowls to de- termine whether they're male or female. Each year, Mr. Tomimoto and his assistant sex about two million chicks. Mr. Tomimoto can sex up to chicks an hour and if required, he can do 100 in 31b minutes. He also sexes about baby turkeys each spring. NEED GOOD EYES "Some days you work a half- hour and the next day maybe 24 hours. You have to have a good eye to start with, other- wise you can't stand the long hours and you're in trouble." The reason for variation in hours is that chicks must be sorted immediately after hatch- ing. It's easier then, he said, because they are softer aid more flexible. Newborn females are usually sexed, shipped by the hatchery and unpacked by a farmer be- fore their first can be up to 48 hours away because they're born with nutrition in their stomach. Males are.usu- ally killed, mainly because they can't lay eggs." Mr. Tomimoto, who attended chick-sexing school in Nagoya near Tokyo in 1937, said without his occupation it would take eight to nine weeks to tell males and females apart after hatching. To learn the business, tt took him three months at school IVz-years apprenticeship. But to become proficient, he said, three to four years are usually needed. REQUIRE PATIENCE He at'ded that many chick sexors are Japanese-Canadian because they possess the neces- sary patience and dcligence for the work. He won't say what he is paid but some chick sexors in the U.S. receive three-fourths to cents a chick. However, Chick sexors may eventually become obsolete. A broiler chicken treed has been developed in England in which the sex can be deter- mined at birth due to different colored feathers. Work is under way to develop a similar char- acteristic in egg-layers. "We don't have to worry for another five to 10 years but it might gradually come for Mr. Tomimoto said. Herbal medicines play major role OTTAWA (CP) Herbal medicines still play an impor- tant role in the care of the sick in the People's Republic of China an6 the head of a visiting 11 member delegation of Chi- nese doctors said that research into some ancient remedies is producing promising new dnigs. Dr. Wu Wci-jan, a Poking sur- geon and vice-chairman of sur- gery for the Chinese Medical Associalion, said recent re- search in his country with an- cient, herbal medicines has led to the discovery of new drugs for treating heart attacks. "We have observed effects on coronary cardiac patients after treatment with some herbal he said. now arc trying to find the scientific basis for this and identify the specific in- gredients, he told a news con- ference nl the end of Ihc dele- Ration's 13-dny visit to medical centres in five Canadian cities. Dr. Wu said I here is great similarity b e t w ee n modern medical treatment methods in Canada and China. But because of "conditions in our country" modern medicine has not tried to'wipe out old practices. Some old methods have turned out io be souncYy based, csuch as acupuncture, practiced centuries ago in China, involves the use of needles in various parts of the body to provide anesthesia or pain relief. It has not been medically determined by Western doctors how acu- puncture works, but its use is tested now in various cen- tres around the world. In many rural areas of China, herbalists still do the major amount of m e A i c n 1 work, he said. Background information pro- vided for newsmen by the Cana- dian Medical Association, host of the Chinese delegation, said about 85 per cent of all medics- lions used arc herbal prepara- tions. ___Tundoy, Novtmbtr 14, THi LETHIRIDCE HMALD 15 Canada's export trade up sharply HANGING IN Placing Minister Trudeau's the Oct. 30 general election. The consensus is however, present Parliamentary predicament in a nutshell is a that it wcn't be long before the cat falls on the floor, poster which has been hanging in his office hallway since OTTAWA (CP) Canada's share of world export trade rose sharply in the second quar- ter of this year to nearly 6.1 per cent, it is reported in Inter- national Monetary Fund statis- tics. The highest Canada has achieved on an annual basis was approximately 6.2 per cent, in 1968. Ten years ago, Can- ada's share of world trade ran to about five per cent. The IMF estimates that total free-world trade, counting all exports from one country to an- olhev outside of Russia and China, as running to an annual rate of about billion in April, May and June this year: This was up 6.9 per cent from the first quarter of the year. Canada's expo-is, measured by the IMF in terms of U.S. dollars, ran to an annual rate of nearly billion in the sec- quarter of 1972, up nearly 23 per cent from the quar- ter of the year. The first quar- ter was c'own 6.7 pep cent from the last quarter of last REMARKABLE BOOST The remarkable boost in ex- ports reported by IMF for Can- ada in April, May and June could be only a passing phe- nomenon. Trade figures com- piled by Statistics Canada for the first nine months of this year show an increase of only 8.7 per cent from the same pe- riod last year. September is usually a month of strong activity, but this year Canada's September exports were up ci'v 2.4 per cent from a year earlier. Through most of the 1960s and into the 1970s so Canada's share of total world export traf- fic has been less than six per cent. GREG CLARK SPINS ANOTHER.
