He was in Honolulu to make a speech and his throwing form, he the admitted, was no throoi to Johnny Unitas. City to run ambulance service Workload al A Iberia laboratories shows marked increase CALGARY (CP1 City I council has decided to get into] the ambulance business and' compete against two private firms. The city has complained for several months about the high cost of subsidizing the private companies annually which operate from the em- ergency telephone number. The city service, approved by a vote of eight to five, will cost for equipment and about annually for op- erations. The new service will be un- der the fire department anc will charge a call plus mileage for trips outside the city. Increased demand for veterinary services EDMONTON (CP) The trend toward concentrated and intensive livestock pro- duction is mirrored in the in- creasing demand for the serv- ices of Alberta's veterinary services' laboratories. Dr. J. G. O'Donoghuc, vet- erinary services division director, said the workload of the laboratories in Edmonton and Lelhb-idge increased 20 per cent'during the first half of 1970. Some 19.000 speci- mens were submitted com- pared with less than for the first six months of 1969. "The sharp increase reflects Alberta's expanding livestock population and. em- phasizes the technological and scientific approach to modern livestock he said. The laboratories h a v e grown steadily over the years, but the present demand for services "far exceeds any- thing in Ihe Dr. O'Donoghue said. He said there also is a growing awareness by live- stock producers of the costs of disease, the availability of services and, presumably, the satisfaction of producers wilh the quality and the compe- tency of the work done by the laboratory staffs. COSTS ABE RISING Dr. O'Donoghuc said the capital costs of the facilities at Lethbridge and Fairview were about each. In Edmonton, the original facilities involved a caoital outlay of about in 1949. Today, these facilities in- volve a capital cosi of about million. "We used to be able to pur- chase microscopes for about each. Now these same units cost more Uian The division started with a staff of foul' professional vet- erinarians in 1950, and they were responsible for covering the whole province. Today the staff, including those at the regional laboratories, num- bers 15. "But it must be pointed out that during that same 20-year period the cattle population in Alberta alone doubled and now is accelerating again." The agriculture department estimated the number of cat- tle being fattened for slaugh- ter in Alberta at July 15 was head, up from the G50.000 on the same dale last year. This year's population is ii2 per cent higher than on the same dale in liliai. "It's basically remarkable that the total number of peo- ple engaged iri tiic production is declining while Hie cattle population D r O'Donoghue said. lie added that one of the foremost problems is that livestock diseases ore becom- ing "more (hat's the right word." This was partly because of the greater concentration ot cattle populations in modern fcedlols. "This intensification creates a whole new series of prob- lems, many based on the stress factors involving the he said. "Years ago, livestock were raised under natural condi- lions and there were fewer j problems compared with to- i d a y 's intensive operations i which require more know- j how." In this field the laboratories j are conducting a large num- ber of special investigations on specific disease problems. Among the continuing studies going on are those dealing with the causes of abortions in cattle, pink-eye problems on grazing reserves and diagnostic techniques for infectious bovine rhinitis. But Dr. O'Donogliua empha- sized that the main function of the laboratories is to provide diagnostic services not availa- ble clseu'herc. "Veterinarians in private practice throughout the prov- ince use them to confirm ten- tative diagnosis and to help them solve difficult disease cases.'' PETERBOROUGH, Ont. (CP) To many Canadian artists in various fields, making it to the top and remaining Canadian is the impossible dream. Bobby Curtola is Canadian. He thinks he has made it. And he is still in the Canadian enter- tainment circuit. But he chalks some of his suc- cess up to good timing, as well as good management. Canada has not recognized its talent but new rulings by Ihe Canadian Radio-Television Com- mission which required more Worlds oldest, hotel porter fit, 100 years GLENDALOUGH, Ireland (AP) Andy McDonnell cele- brated his 100th birthday this week and thinks he must be the world's oldest working hotel porter. After 89 years of paging, grooming and portering, he has no plans to quit. "A man must work to kefip his mind occupied and his legs says Andy, who is still what his youngers call spry. He is a porter in the same hotel where he was born in 1870, the Royal at Glendal- ough, a picturesque village where Dubliners like to week- end. Canadian content will do a great deal to change this. Cur- tola said in an interview during an engagement here. A native of Port Arthur. Ciir- tola, who has been in the enter- tainment business for 10 years, decries the fact that Canadian artists have to go to Britain or United Stales to gain recog- nition. He blames it on the busi- ness end of entertainment. When a Canadian starts out. he is immediately pushed into j the big league, against the talent coming out of the United States, said Curloln. He was critical of the publicly owned CBC for not doing more to keep Canadian talent in the country, and seid it was unfor- lunate that performers such as Lome Greene and Paul Anka couldn't have made it in Can- ada. "We can't really possess any of our talent, but" it is too bad we don't give them a little bit of .strength. It would be wonderful for them here." to be recognized Entertaining had been a case of just staying alive economi- when you're first, you've got it. A lot of it is lucky timing. "A lot of people haven't played my records for years, but they still remember inn. "It ail comes back to the peo- ple. They can recognize you and they caii make you. But they have to have some exposure to you and this is where we have been falling down in Canada, es- partly because artists had I in the area of Canadian leen unorganized in television." but this was changing. Canadians had Curlola attributes much of his not been able to compete with success to getting in on the: the United States. In most i ground floor in the type of en- j cases, he said, private Canadian companies arc too small and if tertaimncnt which made him successful.
