Mr. Olson, 54, told a Lethbridge Chamber meeting Thursday that the "most important common challenge" to business was to build a new image of the competitive free enterprise system Local chambers must work to dispel mis- conceptions about the system, he said Canada has thrived under it and it has produc- ed a good life for most Canadians, Mr. Olson told 40 persons at a luncheon meeting. In Alberta to help launch a dnve for more corporate memberships in the provincial Chamber organization, the general manager of Alwinsal Potash of Canada Lid. said the image of "corporate welfare bums" was un- fair to the business community. "People feel that profits are probably five times what they he said m an interview "Business will have to get out and speak up to get its message across."

Palmont Packers Ltd. of Montreal would employ 200 people. It would be built on a 70-acre site south of the CPR tracks and directly east of the Fort Macleod Auction Market at the junction of the Lethbridge and Cardston highways. It is expected the plant could be operating in 18 months if it gets immediate clearance from the department of the en- vironment "The agreement has been signed with the packing says Mayor Edgar. "I cannot foresee any hitch in plans. The inspectors from the department of the environment looked over the site for sedimentary ponds and waste disposal They appeared to be satisfied but did say they would make a more detailed study."

Ruling hasn't blocked megavitamin therapist A "cosmetic brief mitted earlier this week to the province's energy board by Alberta Ammonia Ltd. ig- nores the needs of Albertans and Canadians, the local chairman of the Committee for an Independent Canada said Thursday night Roger Rickwood told 40 peo- ple at a CIC meeting Alberta Ammonia's proposed am- monia plant near Raymond will disguise a natural resource in order to pump profits, employment and future petrochemical industry down its pipeline to the United States After faulting the com- pany's "grand slam" publicity tactics and "John D. Rockefeller" attitude toward petroleum resources, Mr. Rickwood explained why the CIC local has intervened against the proposed plant before the Energy Resources Conservation Board. The CIC has asked the ERCB to postpone decision on Alberta Ammonia's applica- tion to build the world's largest anhydrous ammonia plant until National Energy Board hearings determine Canadian gas reserves and re- quirements.

The college, more than three months ago, ruled that megavitamin therapy was an experimental treatment not to be paid for through Alberta Health Care. Dr. Reich, who operates a large practice in Calgary, said to date only the disease treated has been listed on health care claims to the government He expects to be required to list treatments soon. "They will eventually force me to put on my card my treatment and then I would be in the experimental group and people would have to pay for it (megavitamin therapy) he told a biology seminar at the University of Lethbndge. Dr. Reich said he never thought the college would place such restrictions But the restrictions are not new to the 57-year-old specialist in internal medicine Dr. Reich said he was forced out of British Columbia before going to Calgary and while in Calgary had his hospital privileges lifted because of his support of megavitamin therapy. Dr. Reich said it is "asinine" to list his practice as experimental because he finished his experimentation more than 15 years ago He has been using megavitamin therapy since with what he said have been excellent to moderate results. Dr Reich said in about cases of asthma he has treated, 94 per cent of children below the age of 15 have had excellent to moderate resolution and peo- ple above that age have shown 65 per cent resolution. By RUSSELL OUGHTRED Herald Staff Writer Ninety seven years ago the Canadian government agreed to pay five Treaty 7 tribes annually for am- munition Today, with ammunition money earning interest in an Ottawa trust fund, the five Southern Alberta tribes can't decide how to divide their largesse. First, Ottawa reneged on its payments of a year for each band. Ninety five years after the signing of Treaty 7, the first treaty claim against the federal government to be settled out of court brought Moses Lake youth centre to re-open STANDOFF (Staff) The Blood band's recreation department is planning to re open the Moses Lake youth centre by early November. Band sports director Wayne Davis told The Herald the band has hired a crew to clean and repaint the centre, which fell into disuse this spring Originally funded by a grant from Indian affairs, the centre has been without a director since spring. Mr Davis said renovations, to be completed in four weeks, are funded by a com- munity hall improvement grant from the provincial department-of culture, youth and recreation and an equal amount from the band's recreation department. the five bands in back payments and a default penalty levied against the department of Indian af- fairs. Says Calgary lawyer Webster Macdonald Sr., who represented the five bands dunng their negotiations with Ottawa "They can't agree on how to cut up the pie "But they waited 100 years for their money and another year or two won't make any difference Since the Mar. 1, 1973, settlement, he explains, the five tribes have argued over cutting up the pie on a per capita basis or carving it up into five equal chunks. Shortly after the Indians settled with Ottawa, a meeting was held among chiefs and councils from the Blood, Peigan, Sarcee, Stoney and Blackfoot tribes. At that meeting, the five tribes voted to split the money evenly, but the votes were later declared invalid by the Bloods and Blackfoot, who want the money distributed on a per capita basis. Per capita distribution, which today would bring each treaty In- dian would have given the Blood band and the Blackfoot The smaller tribes, the Stoney, Sarcee and Peigan want the money split evenly, so each tribe receives On a per capita distribution the Peigans are entitled to Sarcee, and Stoneys Mr. Macdonald says the five bands may have to settle their difference in court. split Mechanic crushed in mine COLEMAN (CNP Bureau) Eugene Oswald, 44, was killed at noon Thursday m a mine accident in the Coleman Collieries Vicary Creek mine, 20 miles north of here Oswald, the underground mechanical superintendent, was driving a continuous min- ing machine out of the un- derground area when he was crushed between the 45 ton machine and timbers on the high side of the mine roadway He was taking the machine out of the mine for repairs.

To find out, a University of Lethbridge professor and student spent two years studying and compil- -S ing the data on the behavior of players in the now defunct Southern Alberta six team Alberta S Highwood Hockey League. In a study soon to be released, Gordon Russell, g psychology professor, and student Bruce R. Drewry found that aggression in hockey is significantly S related to score difference, ieagoe standings, point of S progress in the game and, to a limited degree, crowd ig size :g The study showed that agrressive behavior in a team occurs least when it is tied or one goal behind vi opponents Aggression increases as the team falls further behind in the score vf or when it establishes and j? increases a lead g Players are reluctant to "blow the game" by getting a penalty when their team is down by only one goal or the score is tied. Prof Russell based his study on statistics from the games and determined the degree of aggressiveness on the ice by the number of aggressive penalties being awarded. It was found that aggressive action on the ice increases in magnitude with the positions of the teams in the standings with the exception being the first place team, which usually displays "a sharp drop" in aggressiveness when leading the league. Also, the aggressive behavior lessens as teams fall further down the stan- dings and out of contention for the league title For ex- ample, the second place team is usually much more aggressive than the sixth place team "The heightened aggres- sion displayed by teams one game out of first place may accordingly be ac- counted for by the more severe thwarting of their dnve to attain the league lead "They're frustrated because their goal is to be number one "Less aggression on the part of the league leaders may also have resulted from a conscious reversal in tactics from an offen- sive" to a defensive style of play on the assumption they will draw fewer penalties UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR STUDIES HOCKEY DONNYBROOKS Prof. Russell aggressive action on the ice increases significantly throughout the course of a game However, the study shows aggression does not increase with the tempo of the game (shots on The U of L psychology professor points out that aggressive feelings "may be forming high" when the competition is most Veen but such feelings are usual- ly directed toward winning the contest rather than roughing it with an op- ponent While other studies of violence in hockey have shown player aggressiveness to increase with heightened crowd hostility. Prof Russell says he found very little relation between the two in his study He suggests his examina- tion of audience hostility would have been more ac- curate if the attendance figures had been greater during the two season the league was under study. The study was to deter- mine if aggressiveness in hockey can be related directly to competition While there was general support for the conclusion that aggressiveness can be related directly to com- petition, the study did not find overwhelming support for such a conclusion The hockey league to be studied hasn't been singled out. but Prof Russell says his next research project will study the various methods of measuring aggression in hockey It will specifically report on how players and coaches view themselves and others, including their op- ponents and the relationship of such views to aggressive action on the vx ;
