Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 8, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, September I, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD IS Recycling of newspapers increases in mounting environmental concern By LOUISE COOK NEW YORK (AP) Thousands o f Americans are rending today's news on yesterday's newspaper be- cause of environmental con- cern that has led lo increas- ing use of recycled news- print. The American Paper Insti- tute estimates that of all (he newspapers printed in the United Elates in 1969, 23 per cent were recycled; that is, collected and reprocessed into new paper. Industry, conservation groups, legislators and others have combined to aid in the recycling drive. In Madison, Wis.. for exam- ple, the institute and city offi- cials joined to ask residents to separate newspapers from other refuse. As a result about 40 per cent of the collectable newspapers are being recy- cled, says the inslitule. Irvington, N.J., passed a law requiring that household- ers put their newspapers out separately once a month. Charities pick up the paper and sell It to a recycling com- pany. San Diego, Calif., residents are encouraged to put their newspapers into one of 200 boxes set out by the Kiwanis Club. The city picks up the papers and sells them. The Kiwanis Club gets for every full box and the city salvage operation gets The institute estimates that groups which collect and sort old paper make about mil- lion annually. In addition, tax- pavers save in the cost of refuse disposal for every ton of paper that is collected. The most important product made from recycled waste paper of all kinds is combina- tion papcrboard. The API esti- mated 70 per cent of recycled paper is used in this form. Next comes newsprint and then a variety of other prod- ucts Including cartons, posters and book covers. How much recycled news- print can be used? The Garden State Paper Co., the major producer of re- cycled ncwsnrint, estimated a maximum of 40 per cent. Richard B. Scudder, chair- man of Garden State, said, however, such penetration is impractical from n sales standpoint. "Of the over nine million tons of newsprint used an- nually in the United States, two million tons are made by mills that are owned bv news- he said. "News- papers have long and continu- ing contracts with their sup- pliers, and short of govern- ment pressure, which I don't foresee, I think a 10- or 12- per-eent penetration of the market is about what this form of re-use might be ex- pected to attain." Hal Boyle's column Memories, just memories ny HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) Mem- ory is more than a dustbin of time, stuffed with yesterday's trash. Rather, memory is a glo- rious grab bag of the past from which one can at leisure pluck bittersweet experiences of times gone by and relive them again. Your own memory album has many pages if you can thumb through it and remem- ber when: There was no place to send n oox (op U> and get some- thing back. A majority of the people who went to a professional wrestling match thought it was honest, It wasn't so much a matter of whether a child would have his tonsils was a mat- ter of when. Everyone as- sumed they would have lo come out sometime. Your high school yearbook was incomplete unless at least half of your classmates had written in it, "Leaves may wither, flowers may die, friends may forsake never shall I." You knew tire girl secretly loved you if she would drop out of the other games at a summer picnic to sit in the grass and help you look for four-leaf clovers. When dad lost his job dur- ing the Great Depression, you could hardly stand the embar- rassment of going into the grocery store and having to buy Tiargarine instead of but- ter. After each showing of a si- lent movie, the lady piano player who played the musi- cal accompaniment had the arduous task of combing from her frizzled hair the spitballs thrown at her by small boys in the front row. Most working people could get to or from their jobs in less than half an hour. You knew the house was rented or owned by a large family if there was a cow grazing in the back yard. The automobile was so new that it had not yet begun tn scar the countryside with its unsightly metal graveyards. A wife was regarded as ex- travagant if she sent her hus- band's shirls to the laundry instead of washing and iron- ing them herself. People worried more about being polluted by sin than about the pollution of their en- vironment. Those were the member? Scudder said close to 200 pa- pers in 27 states use recycled newsprint, including the Chi- cago Sun-Times, the New York Post, the Los Angeles Times and the Washington Post. How does recycled news- print compare with regular newsprint? Irwin Jaffe, director of the testing 1 a b o r a t o r y of the American Newspaper Publish- ers Association Research In- stitute, said that on the basis of initial tests "basically you could say it's the same qual- ity." Jaffe said the recycled paper is "pretty much the same color" as regular news- print. He said there were only slight differences in other qualities such as opacity, strength and texture. Jaffe added, however, it was still impossible to deter- mine how newsprint recycled more than once would stand up. "We have no knowledge of how many times it can be re- he said. A spokesman for the Rich- mond Newspapers, publisher of the morning Times Dis- patch and evening Mews Leader, said these papers had been using recycled newsprint since last fall. These news- papers are in the same corpo- rate organization as Garden State. "We are quite he said. "The strength is excel- lent. The opacity is good. The break record is good. It's equivalent lo virtually any Ca- nadian paper." The spokesman said the combined press run of the morning and afternoon papers was printed by letter- press. He said recycled newsprint costs about a ton less than new paper, which now costs a ton delivered in New York and a Ion west of the Rocky Mountains. FAST RUNNER Pronghorn antelopes have been clocked in Saskatchewan sprinting at 60 to 80 miles an hour. Wootco Edmonlonian no longer "eccentric idiol" Homemade plane draws praise EDMONTON (CP) Nci Poslle's non-flying friends no longer regard him as an "ec centric idiot." The Edmonton man built a Baby Great Lakes single- sealer biplane in his garage and federal officials who have inspected it say the aircraft is one of the best-built they have ever seen. "When you tell anyone thai you're going to build a plane, they think you belong to the same class of people that walk tightrope over Niagara Falls or sail the Atlantic Mr. Postle said in an interview. "When they realize you're actually going to do you're 90 per cent you're a hero all of a sud' den." After you begin flying you're no longer lie "eccen trie idiot."

(CP) Th Echo Creek campground, s up as a stop-over for travellin youth, has been closed by N lional Parks officials followin a report from Dr. Alasla MacQuarrie of Banff. "The campground is serious tin-cat to the publ said Dr. MacQuarr who described the area filthy. He blamed pollution of Mile Creek, which run through the northside of th townsite and located adjacen to the camp, on occupants o the transient youth camp. "The whole area is lltterei with garbage and debris of al types, from paper to bottle and portions of garments." He said samples of water taken from the smaller creeks joining 40 Mile Creek wer "stained dark brown an stink." Dr. MacQuarrie said an are described as a medical she ler al Ihe campground ha "half a dozen filthy blankets lying about and a box of non descripl bandages als filthy.'' "There were several neglect ed dirty animals tied to the fencing." Park officials have not an nounced what alternatives will bo considered next year. Fast action for farmers also wanted REGINA (CP) Premier Allan Blakeney said here he hopes the federal governmen will move as fast to aid western farmers as it has in proposing assistance to industries affect- ed by Ihe new United States 10- per-cent import surcharges. An act providing an mil- lion grant package to indus- tries, designed (o help avert un- employment, was presented in the commons Tuesday. "We in the west hope it means there will be equal speed in dealing with the proposal to pro- vide ?100 million to relieve agri- culture problems caused by the disruptions in world Mr. Blakeney said. "We hope, too, that this ac- lion means that if the U.S. actions cause further agricul- tural distress by worsening the ompetitive position of Cana- dian products as compared with hose of the United Stales, the Canadian government will pro- vide support for farmer-victims of the policies as well." Lanuale costs detailed or Ottawa REGINA (CP) Agriculture Minister Jack Messer said here lis department is sending a for- mal statement to the federal jovernment, outlining its ren- ;ons for asking Ottawa lo com- pensate farmers for costs in- olved in the chemical treat- nont of infested rapcsecd crops his year. The province announced carl- cr that it will pay one-third of he cost of Ihe chemical Ian- late. Mr. Messer said the as- iistancc will amount lo about 65 for each pound of lannatc, mscd on a price of n Tolnl cost to the province ould be nnd Ihe fed- ral government Is being asked o contribute n similar amount. hours of extensive testing nec- essary for a flying permit. WIFE STARTED HIM Mr. Postle, a computer tecl'Jiician, enjoys building things. His Baby Great Lakes cost about and a com- parable, commercially-made plane is available in Canada for abou'. His wife, Shirley, "hates flying" but was resigned lo her husband's long hours building tlie plane. "I get lots of company from the of the men that come over to help Neil with Ihe she said- Mr. Postle said his wire got him started on the plane. Ho was building model aircraft which cost up to S300 apiece. His wife suggested that if he was going to spend that much or. models, "you might as well build a real one." More than three years ago he started on the plane, build- ing the wing assembly on the kitchen table in their apart- ment, and cramming the liv- ing room with bils and pieces. Mr. Postle said that an under- standing wife is essential to the at-home plane builder. 1IKLP PJIOVIDET) He had never welded, riv- eled or over-hauled an engine before he began building his plane, but he got plenty of help front three fellow at- home-plane builders who vis- ited him in his garage every night. He contends his plane is stronger than any compara- ble, commercially-made plane on the market. He used or al- tered many regulation air- craft parts and included some features, disk brakes lor ex- ample, not available on fac- tory-made aircraft. Among special problems is the fact home-builts are not eligible for a certificate of air- worthiness from the federal transport department, making public liability insurance ex- pensive and passenger insur- ance "almost impossible." Also the cost for a city home-builder of keeping and operating a plane at a city airport is prohibitive, even with lower prices from such as the Edmonton Flying Club. Thus many prefer to keep their craft ait out-of-town fields or private airfields, renting space and avoiding airport usage fees.
