These must be enforced if they are to be meaningful, he said, and application of the meet the situation.

J. Havlena and Dr. E. L, Tollefson, both of the department of chemical engi- neering at the university, show- ed delegates how a motion pic- tare made of frames taken sev- eral seconds apart could speed up the observer's view of air pollution over the city. A film, shown at the meeting clearly illustrated the buildup of a cloud of pollution over the city during rush-hour traffic, This was dissipated before noon by rising air currents caused by the morning heat, but de- veloped again with the after- noon rush of traffic, Also clearly visible were Iso- lated sources of pollution from various industries in the city. Prof. Havlena noted that this technique could be used to easily monitor conditions in the city and provide a record of sources of pollution and tie times at which the problem was most serious. A small clock visible in the picture at all times provides a record of the time. Atmos- pheric conditions are also in- serted into the film at inter- vals. Prof. Havlena said that he Accident victim seriously Irurt A Calgary man, Kenneth Mit- chell, is in serious condition in Lelhbridge Municipal Hospital and damage amounted to following a two-car, head-on collision one quarter of a mile east of Monarch on Highway Mr. Mitchell suffered a con- juries when the car ha was driving collided with a car driven by Gary Bucci of Cal- gary.

Seal drive to 48 per cent The Kinsmen TB diristrnas Seal Fund campaign has reach- ed 48 per cent of its ob- jective. At tha 16th opening of re- turns the fund climbed by to slightly below last year's donated for the comparable period. Tire total compares with IMS collections of and 1967 when 537 was collected for the pe- riod. Reminders were going into the mail today to persons who may have forgotten to send in their donation. Although many people think TB is a disease of the past, 118 cases wens reported in Can- ada last year new eases and 680 reactivations. Funds collected in the cam- paign are used for research and prevention of TB, lung can- cer, emphysema and other res- piratory diseases as well as for an extensive study into air pol- lution and its health hazards. Lung cancer last year caused deaths, 10 in Lethbridge, Chronic bronchitis and emphy that will be still valid years from now. The government must reserve the rigUl to make higher standards as these be- come technically feasible. Public opinion and basic so- cial attitudes are another im- portant factor in the implemen- tation of pollution control pro- grams, he said. As an example, he noted that the banning of cigarettes would improve the condition of the atmosphere as m u c h as ban- ning sutomobiles, but because of public opinion it would not even be seriously considered. He said it would be "inter- esting" to see just, what public reaction was going to be when the province brought in legisla- tion making it necessary for automobile owners to maintain the exhaust emission devices the federal government was to make mandatory in 1972. The province intended, he said, to sec to it that these de- vices were kept in working or- der and that periodic checks would be necessary. It was going to hit Alberta drivers "right in tha p o c k e t he said, and he wonder- ed what Uie reaction would be, particularly alter what hap- pened with the car safety checks. Mr. Henderson also reiter- ated earlier statements that ab- solute control of all pollution is not feasible from an economic standpoint. Nsccssary indus- tries, for example, cannot exist without some degree of pollu- tion, but this must be kept to a minimum, he said.
