Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 25, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta _____Wednesday, November 25, 1970 THE IE1HBRIDGE HEBAID 39 a SP1RO SPIRAL Spiro Agnew relaxes while throwing a football on the beach in Ho was in Honolulu to make a speech and his throwing form, he admitted, was no threo; to Johnny City to run ambulance service CALGARY (CP1 City 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 and 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 lor the serv- ices of Alberta's veterinary services' laboratories. Dr. J. G. O'Donoghwo, vet- erinary services division director, said the workload of tlic laboratories in Edmonton and Lethb'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 (lie 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 with the quality and the compe- tency of the work done by the laboratory staffs. COSTS ARE RISING Dr. O'Donoghue said the capital costs of the facilities at Lethbridge and Fail-view were about each. In Edmonton, Uie original facilities involved a caoital outlay of about in 1949. Today, these in- volve a capital cost of about 52 million. "We used to be able to pur- chase microscopes for about each. Now these same units cost more than The division started with a staff of foul' professional vet- erinarians in 1950, and they were responsible for covering the whole province. Today thfi 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 13 was head, up from the on the same dale last year. This year's population is 32 per cent higher (ban on the same dale in lilisi. "It's basically remarkable that the total number of peo- ple engaged in the production is declining while the cattle population D r O'Donoghue said. He added that one of Iho foremost problems is thai livestock diseases arc becom- ing "more that's the right word." This was partly because of the greater concentration ot cattle populations in modern fcedlois. "This intensification creates a whole new series of prob- lems, many based on (lie stress factors involving the he said. "Years ago, livestock were raised under natural condi- tions and there were fewer problems compared with to- ri a y 's intensive operations which require more know- how." In this field the laboratories 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'Donoghue empha- sized that the main (unction of the laboratories is to provide diagnostic services not availa- ble elsewhere. "Veterinarians in private practice throughout tiie prov- ince use them to confirm ten- tative diagnosis and to help them solve difficult disease eases." Curtola dream PETERBOKOUGII, Ont. (CP) To many Canadian artists in various fields, n-.aking it to the top and remaining Canadian is the impossible dream. Bobby Curlola 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 the Canadian Radio-Television Com- mission which required more WorlfFs oldest hotel porter fit 100 years GLENDALOUGH, Ireland (APi Andy McDonnell cele- brated his lilOth 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 his mind occupied and Ms legs say.1: 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. Cur- tola, who has been in the enter- tainment business for 10 years, decries the fact that Canadian artists have to go to Britain or the United Stales to gain recog- nition. He blames it o.n Ihe busi- ness end of entertainment. When a Canadian starts out. he is immediately pushed into the big league, against the top talent coining out of the Uniled Slates, said Curlola. He was critical of the publicly mvftt'd CBC for not doing more to keep Canadian talent in the country, and ssid it was unfor- tunate that performers such as Lome Greene and Paul Anka couldn't have made it in Can- ada. you're first, you've got it. A lot of it is lucky timing. "A lot of people haven't We can't really possess any j played my records for years, of our talent, but' it is too bad but they still remember ma. we don't give them a little bit of i "It all comes back to the pco- .strenglii.
