Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Friday, October 11, 1974 ELK FROM SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, INCLUDED IN A 70-ANIMAL SHIPMENT TO BILL GROENEN photo KOREA Record shipment of wild critters left Edmonton airport this morning The largest shipment of wild animals to be assembled for export left Edmonton International Airport today for Korea. Dale Alsager, president of Bio-Scientific Consultants Ltd. of Edmonton, told The Herald this morning in' a telephone interview from the Certified KtechMite CLIFF BLACK, BUCK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL BLOfi.

SPECIAL 19 Call HoiiMwares 327-5767 DOWNTOWN airport 70 wild animals, including 14 deer from the Stewart Game Farm in Lethbridge are in the shipment. There are 10 bears and five or six species of deer and elk in the shipment that were selected from zoos and game farms from Quebec to Van- couver. Two elk were brought in from a zoological garden in Salt Lake City, Utah via Lethbridge to make up a full load Mr Alsager, a biologist, said his firm has been working for about six months with the Korean government, assisting in the selection, purchase and shipment of wild animals from Canada. The Korean government is experimenting in the breeding, use and cross breeding of wild animals. They will use the Canadian wild animals in breeding programs with their wild animals. A trial shipment of wild animals left Canada last June. Mr. Alsager said they are fitting in well in Korea, adapting well to the different environment. Mr. Alsager said the bears selected for export are all fat cubs which would have been shot and buried for lack of a suitable home this year because zoos couldn't keep them. He said he has been trying unsuccessfully to promote the sale of such wild animals in other sectors. There are several animals shot each year that could be marketed rather than destroying them. The consulting firm is responsible for the selection, handling, technological work and co-ordination of the shipment From a possible 190 can- didate animals, only the 70 be- ing shipped were deemed suitable, said Mr. Alsager. Bill McKay of Cardston, former manager of the Calgary Zoo and one of toe foremost authorities on wild animals movement, helped in the selection process. Another aspect of the work of the consulting firm was adapting proper crating for the different animals. Different animals have different ventilation and space requirements and all the crates had to be constructed of light materials, said Mr. Alsager.

Phone fc MAfftVtffeM A FORCEFUL DOCTOR SPEAKS OUT AGAINST FLUORIDATION Dr. Philip E. Zanfanga of Boston, Mass- achusetts, one of the most out-spoken doctors on the fluoridation issue had this to say: "No one can deny that fluoridation is still experimental and is mass medication. For the first time in the history of medicine, millions of our taxpayers dollars are being used to com- pel eveyone to take a toxic substance which accumulates in body tissues and specifically intended to cause changes of an uncontrolled degree in our bodies. OUR ETHICS FORBID ANY PHYSICIAN TO FORCE MEDICATION ON ANY INDIVIDUAL AGAINST HIS WISHES OR TO ISSUE A DRUG IN UNCONTROLLED DOSAGE Experiment- ation without patient consent IS A SERIOUS CRIME he is a physician, dentist or public health official who pro- motes fluoridation is guilty of this lack of con- sideration. The doctor went on to say, "I can assure you that the water department engineers of any town or city are not anxious to assume this responsibility." Furthermore, neither I nor any ethical physician will tolerate any attempt made by these individuals to prescribe a poisonous drug, haphazardly administered to any of our patients who will then consume H in'unfor- seeable amounts. We firmly that every individual should be free to enjoy personal liberty and his RIGHT OF CHOICE TO TAKE OR REFUSE ANY DRUG CAUSING CHEMICAL CHANGES IN HIS BODY WHEN THAT CHOICE DOES NOT THREATEN THE PUBLIC'S HEALTH. FLUOR- When the Lethbridge public school patrons go to the polls in the Oct. 16 civic election, it will mark the first time they have been asked for an opinion on the direction school programming is to take. The referendum will ask public school patrons If they favor expansion of the outdoor and environment, driver education and family life education programs. All three programs have been considered for expansion by the public school board but it wants an indication of public reaction to the programs before it makes any decisions about expanding them, the public school superintendent said. City Scene Sixty cast ballots Some 60 voters cast their ballots Thursday is the first day of the three-day advance poll for Wednesday's civic election. The advance poll is open today .and Saturday at-city hall from 2 to 8 p.m. In 1971 the three-day advance poll attracted 149 voters. There are people eligible to vote in this year's election. Candidate clarifies stand A public school candidate is concerned that some people "could get the wrong impression" about his stand on physical punishment from a statement he made in The Herald, Oct. 10. When explaining that he believes physical punishment should only be used in extreme cases, Gary Bowie told The Herald he only hit one child in 11 years of teaching and it was in a situation where he had to defend himself. He said the situation involved a post-secondary student in a gymnasium situation and only occurred after the student had been overly aggressive to others and himself.

Bob Kemp, manager of the downtown Safeway, said the strike at the Empress Foods Ltd. bread plant has not caused a shortage of bread or buns. The store has local suppliers but he could not say how far they would go.

'so the ballot will be an in- dication of public reaction to the Bob Plazton continued. All three programs men- tioned on the referendum are now operative "in a small way" in public schools, he said. When asked why the third question on the opinion poll asks citizens if they favor the expansion of family life education when there is now no program to expand, Dr. Plaxton explained that schools are now teaching some aspects of family life educa- tion even though the instruc- tion has not been part of an "integrated program." Such aspects of family life education as nutrition, family budgeting and child rearing are "touched After considerable dis- cussion, the public school trustees decided Tuesday not to provide the public with an explanation of the three programs. They feared anything they may say about the programs could be construed as an attempt to bias the public response to the questions. However, during the next few days the board will publicize the questions on the refeodum in an effort to en- courage the public to exercise their opportunity to have a say in school programming.
