NIAGARA GYOIO MASSAGE Residents of the city's West- minster area will see their neighborhood on television at a communitv meeting Sept. 24. The videotape film made during a survey conducted this summer by the Centre for Personal and Community Development mirrors concerns expressed in the neighborhood on traffic and traffic controls, housing and neighborhood conditions, recreational facilities, and city services such as police protection, sanitation and roads. Workers with the centre interviewed 96 people in the survey aimed at finding out what Westminster area residents think of their com- munity, what they feel its needs are, and attempting to assess their willingness to participate in programs designed to meet those needs. Results of the survey will be discussed and the half-hour- long video tape film shown at the public meeting which starts at p.m. at the George McKillop School. Representatives of the Alberta Housing Corporation, the provincial government's housing arm. will also be on hand to discuss the neighborhood improvement program. It's a federal-provincial program which provides funds for rejuvenation of older urban neighborhoods and low-interest loans with forgiveness of up to 500 made to home-owners for repairs and improvements to their houses.

While 81 per cent said they were satisfied with conditions in their community, for ex- ample, nearly 74 per cent replied that there are aspects of their local environment which are a source of dis- satisfaction. Opinion was evenly split on the question. "Is the local city council responsive in listening to and meeting the needs of your Of those sampled, 37.5 per cent said yes and 36.4 per cent said no? about 5 per cent said they didn't know.

Vets given low-down on diseases About 180 Montana and Alberta veterinarians receiv- ed the latest information on three exotic livestock diseases Saturday geared to protecting the Canadian livestock export industry. Participants in the joint Alberta and Montana Veterinary Medical Associa- tion convention discussed in detail blue anaplasmosis and lep- tospirosis. Dr. Harries said Alberta is relatively free of these dis- eases that plague other parts of the world. It is this freedom from these diseases which make Canadian bulls and semen valuable to other countries because there is less risk of transmitting them. Blue tongue is a virus infec- tion which causes death. Anaplasmosis is a parasite infection of the blood cells which causes anemia. Lep- tospirosis is a bacterial infec- tion which causes kidney and liver disease. "Veterinarians need to be on their toes to diagnose and control these diseases so they can nip them in the bud." said Dr. Harries. "The control is needed to protect the export market.'' Other matters covered dur- ing the two-day convention at the Holiday Inn included the latest research information on control of calf scours. Dr. Harries said the veterinarians learned new techniques of introducing fluids to the calves to combat dehydration, which eventually- causes death. More than 50 notices of intentions to present a brief to the Alberta Environment Conservation Authority hearings on pesticide use in the province have been received. Linda MacKay. a member of the authority, said this morning the number of inten- tions to submit briefs is en- couraging, especially con- sidering that the actual hearings won't start for another six weeks. The hearings, designed to solicit information regarding the benefits and hazards of continued use of pesticides and herbicides in urban and rural communities, are being held to ensure future social and economic development in Alberta is in harmony with the goals of environmental conservations. The hearings start in Ed- monton Oct. 28. The hearing in Lethbridge is set for the ex- hibition grounds Oct. 30. Other meetings in Southern Alberta are Nov. 1 in the Medicine Hat Provincial Building.
