'Most Hopeful Research Extensive On Multiple Sclerosis By MARILYN ANDEKSEN Family Editor "The most hopeful time" for sufferers of Multiple Sclerosis is now, said Mrs. Edna L; Forge, executive secretary o the Prairie Division of the Mul- tiple Sclerosis Society of Can- ada. Mrs. La Forge was address- ing the members of the Leth- bridge Chapter during a visit to the city this week. The three most important aims of the Society said Mrs. La Forge are patient service, education of the public and pa- tient, and support for research. Research is being carried on in nearly every university hos- pital in Canada under neurolog- ical studies. Multiple Sclerosis TJ of L Seeks Drama Head The University of Lethbridge is to advertise internationally this fall for the first faculty member of a new drama de- partment. The accepted candidate will become chairman of the de- partment, which will offer its iirst courses in September, 1971. A seven-member committee, comprising Dr. Owen Holmes, dean of arts and science and committee chairman, and rep- resentatives of the student xxly, English, music and art departments, is expected to be- gin interviewing candidates in January. The founding chairman will re responsible for the devel- opment of the department and concern himself with such items as facilities, staff and curriculum. Also expected to start next autumn is the theatre arts pro- gram at Lethbridge Commun- ity Chet Wayne, head of the ra- dio arts department, said a "number of enquiries" had been received about the pro- posed theatre program and "I'm quite sure it will come into being in 1971." 1970 Is Year Of Ups And Downs For Mobile Home Manufacturers centration In Canada of mobile home and recreation vehicles manufacturers. B.C. has been a large market for Alberta manufactured mobile homes. Miss Wheeler and some loca manufacturers predict strengthening of the market the last quarter of this year bu all admit they don't really know what is going to happen The future of the industry, how ever, is assured. The only ques- tion is: When will it pick up? Efforts are being made to advance the industry by promo- tion of more and better mobile _ home parks, by dispelling prej a telephone interview that mo-.uciices against mobile home bile home sales in Western Can- dwellers through public educa- ada have been down but rec- BY JIM MAYBIE Staff Writer This has been a slightly de- pressed year for mobile home manufacturers in southern Al- berta but crystal ball gazers are looking for some improve- ment for their 1971 models. The industry this year has experienced production cut- backs, some construction staff layoffs, fewer sales and diver- sification of production. Tim Wheeler, public relations director for the Canadian Mo- bile Home and Travel Trailer Association of Calgary, said to reation vehicle sales have been up. In the East the reverse is true, she said. Tent trailers and motor homes have been selling well in the West. The labor situation in British Columbia, with its many strikes, is attributed as being one of the main reasons for the depressed sales of mobile homes in Western Canada. Alberta has the largest con- CLARINET RENTALS PER MONTH Cor. 3rd Ave. 13th St. S. Phone 327-1056 lion projects, by developing a national building standard anc by numberous other projects. STANDARD SOUGHT The Canadian Mobile Home and Travel Trailer Association asked the Canadian Standards Association to develop a stand- ard building code for the indus- try similar to the National Building Code used for conven- tional construction. The code was developed and some manufacturers have qual- ified for certification. Many others now are making changes to comply with the code and qualify for certification. Some of the code requirements are much stiffer than Central Mort- gage and Housing Corporation requires for conventional hous- ing. The industry is hopeful that eventually mobile homes will j qualify for CMHC mortgages. I "One of our biggest prob- a local industry execu- tive said, "is the lack of parking space and, carrying DR. PETER iRLAM wishes to announce that from 16th September, 1970 his office will be located at 315 6th Street South Lethbridge, Alberta Telephones: 328-8544 328-8555 Psychiatry By Appointment that line further, the lack of 'decent' parking accommoda- tion." The industry is hoping CMHC will provide funds for develop- ment of mobile home parks. It costs to per lot to develop a park with modest fa- cilities. It is difficult for de- velopers to obtain loans because there is nothing but land for lenders to hold as security. Miss Wheeler said the situa- tion is improving as lenders get more experience with mo- bile home owners and park de- velopers but that money for such developments still is ex- tremely tight. MOBILE HOME PARK Boise-Cascade, an internation- al company with a mobile home and travel trailer manufactur- ing plant at Lethbridge, is building a ?2 million mobile home show park in Calgary for 300 homes. It will be an exam- ple of the way parks should be developed and will give an insight into the type of parks which are being developed in the U.S. On the local scene, HaiCo Manufacturing Ltd. which man- ufactures travel trailers, motor homes and camper units, re- ports business has boomed this year. :We did in six months what it took us 12 months to do last a company spokesman said about the firm's sales, was up. For the first lime in the company's history double shifts were required. Forty per cent more people vere employd this year than ast year. Staff peaked at 160 compared with a normal em- rtoyment of 110. There will be ittle inventory carryover into 971. For the mobile home in- lustry, however, things were lot as rosy. One district manu- acturer reports sales were own nine per cent. This sum- mer there were significant lay- offs for six to eight weeks. Of the 180 former staff, 155 now are back to work. INDUSTRIAL CAMPS In order to get ,some of its staff back the company drversi fied its operations and now is building industrial camps. "Mo- bile home sales will be picking up and the last quarter this year will be a com- pany spokesman forecast. "Early 1971 will be difficult for many. The whole industry is on the growth period of the curve. It will be a period of adjustment. Inventories, which were excessive, now are evening off. There are a lot of potential camps and project homes which could be built. We are cautious- ly optimistic for the future." Another local company had one layoff of 30 men early in the spring but managed to maintain the same staff as last year. The market this year has been soft, not up to expecta- tions, but the final quarter is ex- pected to be good. Unit and dollar sales are "fairly even with 1969." By Oct. 15 the inventory will be cleared. Another local manufacturer reported a slight cutback in rec- reation vehicle production. Unit sales have been about the same as in 1969 and dealers are in a better inventory position than they were last year. Recreation vehicle space is being utilized to manufacture j industrial camps. There are no j staff layoffs this year as wort ers were required on the expand ed industrial camp manufactur- ing lines.

Research is slowed by the re- missions which can occur when the myelin sheath for some reason is regenerated. Research teams have also been unable to determine why certain geographical areas ap- pear to be more susceptible to MS than others, said Mrs. La Forge. She cited the instance of one block where six cases of MS were found, all unrelated. The disease is not communicable. Mrs. La Forge travels throughout Alberta, Saskatche- wan and Manitoba to contact sufferers of MS. "I have found deplorable conditions where auxiliary hos- pitals such as you have at Lethbridge are not available. "Many people do not know about the MS Society and do not know that wheelchairs are available to them, rehabilita- tion centres, provincial assist- ance, and Canada Manpower to find work." MS can affect eyes, ears, or muscular control. Mrs. Fraser Hodgson 1615 13 St. N. is secretary of the local chapter. BUSINESS JOTTINGS Dr. G. C.
