Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE September Try to save Canadian short story produces new literary magazine By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer With no funds and only a typewriter and a few short stories to operate with, a Lethbridge school teacher has set out to publish Canada's first national short story magazine. Louis Burke registered the magazine with the copyright office in Ottawa and intends to publish four issues of the new magazine in 1975. The first issue is to hit the newstands in January. Short stories published in the magazine must be written by Canadian writers for Cana- dian readers and use Canadian backgrounds and themes. The stories in the magazine will be restricted to max- imum of words. While all materials must be fictional, there will be no restriction on the type of fiction published. Mr. Burke, a Catholic Central High School teacher, hopes the magazine will be used by readers to fill their spare moments during the day "I would like to replace the television ad. Instead of watching the ads, people could pick up the magazine and read a short he suggests. The idea of publishing a magazine came to Mr. Burke after he found that there wasn't a market in Canada for his short stories. Even the Canadian Broad- casting Corporation has stopped airing radio or televi- sion adaptations of Canadian short stories, Mr. Burke was shocked to discover when he forwarded a short story to the public network. During the summer, Mr. Burke contacted individuals and organizations throughout Canada and the initial response to the development of a short story magazine was enthusiastic enough to en- SUPER SPECIAL! 5-YEAR LIGHT BULBS Popular Sizes V2 Mfg.

After placing an advertise- ment this summer in the Alberta department of culture, youth and recreation bulletin, Mr. Burke received several short story sub- missions from writers in Ed- monton and Calgary and a subscription to the magazine from Saskatchewan. He intends to frame the sub- scription for the first issue of the magazine and the 50 cents that was taped to it. Annual subscriptions for four issues of the magazine sell for The major obstacle Mr. Burke faces in attempting to see his dream of a national short story magazine become a reality is finances. He has contacted several companies and provincial and federal government officials, but has been unable to obtain financial support for the magazine. Imperial Oil of Canada still nas his request under con- sideration and the Canada Council has indicated it may provide assistance for the magazine after the first four issues have been published. In the meantime, financial backing for the magazine will depend solely on subscriptions and advertising. Mr. Burke insists the first issue of the magazine will be printed in January even if "I have to pay for it myself." He expects to print between and copies of the first issue. The magazine is to be operated on a non-profit basis with printing and distribution expenses having first right to any income. After the expenses have been taken care of, writers will be rewarded and prizes for student writers will be es- tablished. If the magazine revenue ex- ceeds its expenses, rewards to writers and awards to students, the remainder of the profits will be used to provide scholarships for students of Canadian literature. The Canadian Short Story Magazine "is not another academic Mr. Burke points out. "It is intended to be a magazine able to com- pete with any part of the com- munications network." Stories written by beginners, established amateurs and professionals, young and old will be seriously considered, he maintains.

Mr. Burke believes the magazine will be able to main- tain a high standard of qual- ity because it will be receiving written submissions from writers throughout Canada. The magazine will also provide Mr. Burke with an op- portunity to have some of his own writing published. While working in Kenya, he had between 40 and 50 short stories published. He has also written six novels but to date has not offered them for publication. Long-range plans for the magazine see it being publish- ed on a monthly basis with a team of experts deciding its content. Meanwhile Mr. Burke ad- mits all plans for the magazine depend directly on its acceptance by Canadian subscribers. "I sincerely hope there ex- ist many such individuals" who are "willing to risk two dollars in the new Canadian magazine, says Canada's newest publisher. Realizing the massive un- dertaking he has committed himself to, Mr. Burke admits there is a possibility he "will fall flat on my face." However, he believes the cause is worth the risk and tends to approach the publica- tion of the magazine with the positive attitude that a small Lethbridge enterprise may grow to national importance. Bootstrap editor Louis Burke, a Lethbridge school teacher, is attempting to publish Canada's first national short story magazine but has received only one subscription from Saskatchewan. Subscriptions and advertisements must support the magazine for the first four issues, he said. The publication is dedicated to Canadian national literature. Survey finds schools poor for mobility of handicapped City separate schools are not totally accessible to the disabled and elderly, the public school board was in- formed Wednesday.

Jack Homer, PC-Crowfoot, told The Herald in a telephone interview from Ottawa Wednesday Ken Wells, head of the federal health of animals branch, confirmed concrete would provide protection from the dreaded cattle disease. Anthrax is caused by spores which can live indefinitely in the soil They come to the surface under certain conditions and can cause death in livestock if the animals come in contact with the spores. Under present arrange- ments, ranchers must fence off areas where cattle have been found dead to keep other animals from contracting the disease. Mr. Horner said rancher Roy Hamilton of Youngstown suggested concrete to replace fences for better protection. "The concrete will cost more to install but the upkeep will be much less than fences." In July nine cows died from anthrax on the Hamilton ranch and another eight animals died on a Nanton area ranch in July. Mr. Horner said federal health of animal authorities are also testing a flame throwing device to rid areas of anthrax spores which, if successful, would be more feasible than fencing or ce- ment pads.

A 48-year-old Lethbridge man who pleaded not guilty Wednesday to assault causing bodily harm has been remand- ed until Oct. 9 for trial.
