Facilities impress Russians Four members ol a six-man Russian trade delegation to Canada expressed extreme in- terest Monday in specialized meat processing equipment at Jie Lelhbridge n'ant of Swift Canadian Co. Ltd. Vechaslav Koiesnikov, direc- tor of the Soviet department for production of meat food ma- chines o[ the ministry of milk and meat production, said: From preliminary investiga- tion, this plant is very notice- ably complete with very high efficiency equipment. 'In Russia we have such fac- tories on a much larger scale but this plant has very high production rates in a small area." Special interest was paid to the vacuum transportation sys- tem for certain animal parts, which speeds up production. The Russians have not utilized such a system. The purpose of the tour, which resulted from Prime Minister Trudeau's recent visit to Russia, is to sliow the Rus- sians that Canada can supply complete meat processing sys- tems. I. B. Miller, of the industry machines and engineering vices division of the federal de- partment of trade and indus- try, said the Russians are fur- ther advanced in certain areas of processing industries but are interested in finding solutions to problem areas by instituting speciality equipment. "In Canada, the largest poul- try processing plant, which the group toured last week, han- dles units an hour. In Russia there are several plants which handle units an Mr. Miller said. The delegation left early this afternoon for Winnipeg, the only other Western Canadian city it will to tour a trac- tor factory. From there they will go to Ontario to visit dif- ferent areas.

Within a matter of months her activi- ties are reduced as her painful condition worsens. Arthritis and rheumatism strike where most unexpected, and anyone can become the vic- tim of this painful disease. Often it strikes children as young as two years of age. The Canadian Arthritis and Rheumatism Society is a non- profit agency organized to pro- mote and co-ordinate the attack upon these diseases through re- search, education and rehabili- tation. Organized in Lethbridge in 1956 as a branch of the national organization, CARS has been invaluable in its assistance in providing help to many soulh- em Albertans suffering from arthritis. The immediate goal of CARS on both the national and local level is arthritis control.

The Lethbridge weather office has no official confirmation on wind velocity, but farmers in the area estimate winds at the lieighl of the storm at more than 100 miles an hour. Rain and hail accompanying the wind did extensive damage to crops in a strip estimated at about 10 miles wide. Lyle Murray, who farms in Hie Travers Dam area it miles north and four miles east of Picture Butte, had the roof taken from his house. About 700 acres of crop, bolh standing and swathed, were lost in the slorir. Mr. Murray said neighbors reported seeing a whirlwind passing through his farm although he could see City residents may help Unitarians On Sept. 13, the Unitarian Service Committee will launch its 27lh annual campaign wilh a Christmas target of in funds and gifts in kind.

Through its executive director, Dr. Ililschmanova, the USC has acted as a catalyst in developing countries, supplying funds and gifts, advice and in- spiration to its partner organi- zations and indigenous staff. The agency never attempts [o impose foreign standards on nn alien culture but works to find local solutions lo long term problems. The Unitarian Service Com- mittee now has a total of 108 projects in 12 countries. These include 15 new programs in the ncwly-croatcd stales of Bots- wana, Lesotho and Swazi- land in Southern Africa.

Ten miles east of Carmangay on Ihe Bill Gray farm granaries were wrecked and the roof blown from Ihe barn. The roof or parts of it were found 300 yards away when the wind abated. Mr. Gray lost 200 acres of flax that had been swa'.hed plus his barley crop. He esti- mated several thousand acres of crops in the district had been lost in the storm. The strength of the wind is also illustrated by ths fact that it uprooted a quarter mile row of 30 year old poplar trees en the Sam Biroslek farm near Enchant. million lo the economy because of arthritis.
