Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Heavy water situation improves By JK1 Herald Ottawa Bureau OTl'AWA The once gloomy heavy water situation for Can- ada's nuclear industry may soon IK; b lesscd with s ome much-needed, optimism in the next few montlis, On one Ii'ont, preliminary re- sults of a federal science minis- try study ol heavy water sup- plies anrt demands during the coming treacle indicate thai the situation in the early may not be as bad as other nuclear experts have been predicting. On another front, senior offi- cials of Atomic Energy of Can- ada Ud. CAECL) and Ontario Hydro, the largest user of tho CANDU system for nuclear power production, have been meeting this week in Toronto, working out details whereby tho provincial uUlily will bo able to safely commit a signifi- cant portion of its future installations lo nuclear plants. Ontario Hydro, which is al- ready facing a serious shortage of heavy water for its TMcker- ijig nuclear complex, near To- Fire fighting has become mosl dangerous profession By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) Things a columnist might never know if he didn't open his mail; Fire figliting has replaced mining a3 the most danger OILS U.S. profession. Last year 2L1 firemen were killed and injured wliile on duty, thus raising the industry's mortal- ity rate to 115 for every firemen. The long tusks of the walrus aren't used only to fight rivals or scare away enemies. They make handy tools to gouge up cioms from tlw floor of Uie sea. As recently as half a cen- tury ago, American labor was fighting an uphill battle to get the standard work week cut lo five days. Now employees of more than 300 U.S. firms are working a four-day of 40 hours oi' loss. Modem war leaves vast scars en the land as well as in the spirit of man. Scientists estimate that years of heavy aerial bcrnbardmcnt have left more than 20 million craters in the soil and cities of Indo- china. The area of the craters Is the equivalent of acres. Turnabout: In the New lie- brides, says the National Geo- graphic Society, the native is- landers scold their children by saying, "Be good, or the white man will get pcarcily makes value: Dur- ing the reign of King Edward DI of England, the iron pots and pans in the royal palace were so highly valued they were classified among the crown jewels. An iinfnir trade: It is oaid that the white man gave the Indians tuberculosis and fire- water and that the Indian got even by giving the white man Ihe tobacco habit. But the In- dians also taught the while man lo grow such new food crops as corn, white potatoes and sweet potatoes, kidney beans, peanuts, lima beans, tomatoes, peppers, squashes and pumpkins, avocados, cocoa and pineapples. Another poor deal: To gel rich all you have to do is in- vent a common cheap gadget that almost everyone needs or uses. So one theory goes. It didn't work, however, for Wal- ter Hunt, the early 19Ui cen- tury New York City Quaker who invented the safety pin. He sold all tte rights to it for a sum which left liiin. after paying his dehts, with just in cash. You're wrong if you think that cows are worshipped as gods in India. They arc sim- ply venerated by Hindu reli- gious tradition, tradition which may liavc originally re- sulted from" measures to pro- tect the supply of milk. It is still violation of n religious taboo to kill a cow, but many cows wander at will and are not well cared for.

More specifically, the utility is asking the government to de- velop a formal heavy water production plan and is asking that it lie given a say in who designs, builds, operates and owns any future heavy water plants in Canada. At the moment, Ontario Hydro's decisions about future nuclear power plants for Ilio province could be critical for the future of the Canadian nu- clear system. The province is finishing a large nuclear power complex at Pickering and plan- ning lo build an even larger one later this decade at Bruce, Ont. One company official esti- mated that the- success to date at Hie Pickering nuclear com- plex will likely moan thai Or.' tari Hydro's next commitment for power installations will con- sist of at least half nuclear, half fossil power plants.

IIM C S Athabaskan was handed over lo Commander II. D. Yanow of Saskatoon at tho Davie Shipbuilding Ltd. yard where she was built The Alhabaskan, designed and built entirely in Canada, is the second of four in a new scries of helicopter-carrying de- stroyers to be commissioned. The HMCS Iroquois was com- missioned in July. All four sliips will be based In Halifax for service with tho Maritime Command. The Athabaskan is 423 feet long, 50 feet wide and can (ravel at more than 27 knots. It is equipped with two anti sub- marine helicopters and has a crew of 2CO. six of the Pickering or hrucc- sized complexes for Ihe 1980s. Heavy water needed for the Canadian-type nuclear reac- tors, as a moderator and cool- anl. The federal science ministry study suggests that a second shortage of the liquid may not appear until later in the 1980s. Experts at AECL predict Ihe second shortage will come early in the 1980s and they sug- gest this will require a decision by the end of 1973 lo build an additional heavy water plant in Canada. The science ministry study suggests such a decision could be postponed for a few more months. This may give in- dsistry the time to evaluate tho technology and demands in- volved and decide to build any additional heavy water plants. At present, no private inter- ests have said they are inter- ested and it seems the govern- ment may have to finance any additional plants. Discussions on. both fronts are expected to continue. No firm decisions are expected un- til later in the year. HIOHE BHITTLE A dry axchandle Is more brit- tle than one that has some moisture in it. SIMPSONS bears BLOUSE and SWEATER BONANZA Reg.
