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, hz- 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 1862-63. Since then, the rules of the game have changed a great deal, he said. "At that time, the govorn- MARC'EL LAMBERT Speaker's role menL 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 Mulnnii, a medical doctor anil 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 lo 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 Plowmen's Association were named post- humously to the Agricultural Hall of Fame at Toronto. Dr. William n.

Dr. Reek died in 1968. E. K.

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- olhV outside of Russia and China, as running to an annual rate of about billion in April, Alay and June this year! This was up 6.9 per cent from the first quarter of the year.

Nov. 15-18 CALGARY (CPl The fast- est hands in the West could be- long to Hiroshi (Jim) Tomi- moto, a chick Eexor 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 31s 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 (rouble." The reason for variation in hours is that chicks must be sorted immediately after halch- ing. It's easier then, he said, because they arc softer 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 bom with nutrition in their stomach. Males are. usu- ally killed, mainly because they can't lay eggs." Mr. Tomimoto, who attended chick-selling 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 and Ite-years apprenticeship. But to become proficient, he said, three lo four years are usually needed. REQUIRE PATIENCE He ac'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 1.1 cents a chick. However, Chick seiors may eventually become obsolete. A broiler chicken breed has been developed in England in which the sex can be deter- mined at birth due to different colored feathers. Work is unc'er' way lo develop a similar char- acteristic in egg-layers. "We don't have to worry for another five lo 10 years but it might gradually come for Mr. Tomimoto said.
