Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 _ 1HI UTHBRIDOE HERALD Wednesday, October 7, 197C- Canada's Farming System Scored WINNIPEG id') A grain adviser for the European Eco- nomic Community says the Ca- nadian agriculture industry has "damn poor merchandising" Working on its behalf. A. P. Van Stolk who is also a grain buyer and adviser for Bel- gium and Holland, told a confer- ence of the Agriculture Econom. ics Research Council of Canada in Winnipeg, that the Canadian grain farmer places too much stock in the "myth" that his grain is the best in the world. Mr. Van Stolk said Canadian farmers had been "bailed out" this year by the fact that the United States, Europe and Af- rica had poor crops. He noted that exports to Eu- rope had been generally de- creasing. This, he said, was due to "damn poor merchandising" and not to high levies placed on European buyers of Canadian wheat. "You have lived with a myth that Canadian wheat is the best wheat in the he said. STANDARDS DECREASE Mi-. Van Stolk said Canadian farmers had failed to keep up a standard that was once high and the customers had just walked away. About 10 years ago, he ex- plained, the European market had started to demand a very exact type of wheat. The Europeans wanted a specified protein level and a certain maltose level with wheat and "your old millers didn't like to get away from old habits" He advised the Canadian grain industry to start being more sensitive to world mar- kets.

Russian Cosmonaut Says Horizon Band Of Red Light KONSTANZ, West Germany (AP) Scientist-cosmonaut Vi- taly Sevastyanov said here that from orbiting .Soyuz 9 he observed earth's horizon as a distinct band of red light about 71 miles above the surface. Another Soviet scientist said the discovery could lead to bet- ter spacecraft navigation meth- ods and provide a better idea of the composition of the earth's atmosphere. The latter knowledge, the sci- entist said, is necessary for in- terpretation of data from satel- lites surveying the earth's re- sources. And it could tell whether the amount of aerosol, a pollutant, in the atmosphere is undergoing a change, which he :aid could have serious effects on the earth's climate. Sevastyanov flew a record earth orbit kip of nearly 18 days in June with Col. Andrian Nikolayev. He told the 21st congress of the Interna- tional Astronautical Federation here that he carried newly de- veloped optical equipment to ob- serve and photograph the hori- zon. "Soyuz 9 allowed us for the first time to obtain spectral ob- servations of our planet over a long he said. "One of the principal findings was the observation of an ingenious nar row belt at the spacecraft is on the dark side and the observer looks, at the sun. "That's when we saw the belt at an angular distance about 3.9 degrees from the surface. The twilight then was seen as part at the atmosphere in red color." He said the 71-mile height "is characteristic of many photo- chemical processes going on in this region of the atmosphere. This probably is the explanation for the belt. It's between homo- g e n e o u s and inhomogeneous chemical atmospheres." Prof. K. Y. Kondratyev, head of the department of physics at Leningrad University, said the information obtained by Soyuz 9 is extremely valuable because "it helps us to use the atmos- phere as a prism which gives us information about the composi- tion and structure of the atmos- phere." PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES JACKPOT 50 NUMBERS Lethbridge Elks Lodge Room (Upstairs) EVERY THURSDAY-8 P.M. The Music Box RCMP Constable Turns To Music By MICHAEL BENNETT Canadian Press Stall Writer Terry David Mulligan was an unsuspecting third-class RCMP constable doing routine surveillance work on a house of ill repute in Red Deer, Alta., when that devil rock 'n' roll music turned him from the paths of truth, justice and the Canadian way. His observation post was radio station 'CKRD, situated next to the suspected house, and when he wasn't watching prospective clients he was digging Eric Burden and The Animals and a song called The House of nie Rising Sun. "I just got hung, up on the music and pretty soon 'I was doing a show as Mr. X in my ofWuty said Mulli- gan, who gave up hup-two- three for hip-and-groovy six years ago and now is music director far CKVN in Varrou- ver. "Sometimes, I was still my boots and breeches." Today, the 27-year-old disc jockey looks like an under- cover agent in search of a drug raid, his long, dishwa- ter-blonde hair touching his shoulders. M. 'ligan was a scrawny 19- year-cuu when he left his home in Kamloops, T.C., for a live-year hitch. There were 31 other raw c r e w c u t rookies wlicn he started basic training in Rs- g i n a n d nine of them packed it in after the first week. FLASH WAS WEAPON "I rer.ember one parade drill, a guy fell on his face on the tarmac and mashed his nose. There was blood all over the place. "The sergeant-major ran over and bellowed, 'Who told I .at man he could, bleed on my It put the fear of God in me, man." His first posting was Olds, Alta., an on town of about 60 miles north of Cal- gary, where he carried a sev- en-cell that saw as much cracking skulls as it did checking doorknobs. "I had to walk through the only bar in town every night. It was like an open invitation to beat up the cop------It was a running battle to keep from getting your nose broken." After a year of running in the town bullies, he was trans- ferred to Red Deer where he became chief summons typist and prisoners waiter for the 35-man detachment.. "I always talked to the kids, tried to put some doubt in their minds about what they were doing. "I kept telling them that everyone doing their trip breaking and entering and car in jail. Everybody in the detachment thought I was crazy." Then came the stint at CKRD. QUIT THE FORCE "I was doing gross rock radio as Mr. mean really gross. "But I found I had a talent for it and I decided to quit the force. It took me six weeks to buy ray way out of my enlist- ment." Mulligan himself has been exposed to the up- against tire wall attitude of over-zealous constables who enjoy playing the heavy with longhairs. But he still has a lot of respect for the police. "I just wish the police who understand what's happening could be part of a special squad and meet regularly with members of the under- ground. "It's always a struggle, man, fighting the decision- makers. The guy on the beat knows, but the decision-mak- ers are in another world. They just see stoned, dirty hippies."
