Wednesday, October 27, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Weathermen of future i'iu'e prediction challenge TORONTO (CI1) Weather I forecasters of the future will bo called on to predict man's im- part on the climate for perhaps years ahead, Dr. P. D. Mc- Taggarl-Cowan, executive direc- tor of the Science Council of Canada, said today. The next decade would see the forecaster challenged "to open a brand new era of predic- tive climatology." "This will involve computer models of the main features of the climate adequate to forecast (he impact of man's manipula- tions of his environment for 100 years into the fulure." Mi'. McTaggart-Coivan, him- self a former forecaster, said other countries already are starting down this road. To get into this field would require full co-operation of the biological and chemical sci- ences and those interested in re- newable and non-renewable re- sources. "Predictive climatology as it develops will act as a rallying point for forestry, fisheries and oceanology and all those with a concern for the environment whether it be land, sea or air." Dr. McTaggart-Cowan said t h e Canadian meteorological service and the universities must work together to meet the coming challenge of climate prediction. He spoke at a meteorological symposium here.

TORONTO (CP) It hap- pened so quiekly few saw it, but. Soviet Premier Alexei Ko- sygin got one final reminder of Canada before he left here for Cuba kiss from Margaret Trudeau. The incident happened as Mrs. Trudeau, wife of the prime minister, escorted Mr. Kosygin up the steps to his blue-and-while Aeroflot air- craft iin a remote comer of Toronto International Airport. A photographer for The Star said he witnessed the quick buss on the cheek but was unable to get a picture of it. Donald Macdonald, Can- ada's towering minister of de- fence, unwillingly blocked the view of many of the press as he went into the aircraft with Mr. Kosygin, Mrs. Trudeau, the premier's daughter and Senator Paul Martin. The Canadians said their final goodbyes in the privacy of the aircraft and then re- lumed to the tarmac.

The airport was decorated with huge portraits of Castro and Kosygm. A hijacked Ameri- can 747 jumbo jetliner awaiting permission to return to the United Stales stood in a corner of the field. PLACE PLANTS Along the route to the airport, combo bands played as munici- pal employees hastily placed potted plants in position. The plane carrying Kosygin, who finished an eight-day tour of Canada, was escorted into Havana by four Soviet-built MiG fighter planes from the Cuban air force. After walking down the ramp. Kosygin, waving and smiling at the' foot of the steps, threw his arms around Castro and gave him a warm hug, and did the same with Dorticos.

MADE PUBLIC SOON Replying to a follow-up ques- tion from Walter Dinsdale (PC r a n d o n Environ- ment Minister Jack Davis said the report by the Edmonton sci- entists probably would he pub- lished officially later in the week. Mr. Dinsdale had quizzed the ministers Oct. 8 about the use ot Suffield for tank exercises, cit- ing at that time a complaint by the Canadian Wildlife Service and a proposal that the Suffield grasslands be made into a na- tional park. Mr. Davis said then that the wildlife service had been work- ing closely with the defence de- partment.

In fuel, he says, Morgan County, in eastern Kentucky, lists more voters than residents. Mr. Mackasey said in an in- terview that some critics have interpreted the some such a way as to suggest unions would be able to block desirable technological changes in industry. In fact, he said, the purpose of the bill is to encourage un- ions and managements to in- elude Icchnological-change provisions in normal collective- bargaining agreements. The minister said the labor department now is considering a modification of the bill which would encourage such bargain- ing without, jeopardizing innova- tions. The bill, lo reform federal in- dustrial relations legislation, has been sharply criticized by business executives who fear it might increase union power. In its original form, the bill would require managements to give 00 days' notice of major technological changes. Unions would have the right to bargain over the cffccls of the changes and, if no agreement resulted, would have the righl lo slrike in certain instances.
