Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 21, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta JO THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, September 21, 1970 DAY BREAK SHOOT The waterfowl season opened in (he province today and (his sight was fairly in southern Alberta as hunters hit the lakes and fields for the first fall shoot. New regulations are in effect Ihis year under the Alberta Wildlife Act and hunters have been encouraged to become familiar w.ith them. They include matters of loaded firearms, dress and age limits. A warn- ing about eating ducks shot in the Lake McGregor district, 40 miles north of Lethbridge, has been issed by wildlife officials because of botulism, a poisoning of ducks. It has been estimated that some ducks are infested with the disease. Cold weather usually wipes out the bac- teria-causing botulism.

It was to be on the east end of town near what is known as the Nuefeldt subdivision. On the committee were Mayor Ron Low, councillors John Clarke and Frank F. iVicns. The reason for refusal seems o be the location was not de- sirable for a trailer site. Jeune Iwaasa planned a 10- site which he would have landscaped, paved and maintained for selective rental. At a recent council meeting a group of concerned home- owners in the area were repre- sented by a delegation who submitted a petition explaining heir objection to the develop- ment. Appearing before town council was Jake NeuTeldt, spokesman and Wayne Stewart. Jr. Neufeldt said the petition lad 100 per cent endorsement rom the residents in the area.

CKUA Radio May Be In Final Year Broadcasting By HERB JOHNSON Herald Staff Radio station CKUA in Ed- monton, the only one of its kind in Canada, may be in ils final year of operation. A recent ruling by the Canadian Radio- Television Commission may force the station off the air nexl spring. The loss of the only non-com- mercial station hi the province will be keenly felt by loyal lis- teners in Lethbridga and dis- trict. While the station has never had a large portion of the potential audience, it does have an extremely faithful band of listeners, some of whom ignore reception problems in southern Alberta and tune in regularly. A typical listener is Mrs. Anae Campbeli, well-known city music educator. Mrs. I Campbell, who has been tuning i said in a telephons interview j in almost every day for about the university is hoping to pre- 15 years, says she would feel serve the station but he doesn'l "very badly" if the station were I really know at this time what to stop broadcasting. CKUA, she says, has TRUMPET RENTALS MONTH MUSICLAND Cor. 3rd Ave. 13lh St. S. Phone 327-1056 been very kind about playing records by the Teen Clefs and the Anne Campbell Singers and performs a real service to the commun- ity. Although she doesn't listen to the jazz programs too often, she says she does enjoy the classical and folk music fea- tured on the station. She said she has no problems picking up the station in the daytime, although it does fade out at night. A confirmed fan of the in- formation and music programs offered by CKUA, Mrs. Camp- bell said she "certainly would object" if they "were nb longer available. Dr. Max Wyman, president of the University of Alberta, which holds CKUA's licence, ils fate is going to be. The CRTC ruling states that see page no educational institution may hold a radio broadcasting li- cence. Df. Wyman said a letter had been written to Secretary of State Gerard Pelletier re- questing clarification of the nil ing. The problem is, he said, that it sets out only what is pro- hibited and does not give any alternatives to the present sit- uation. Federal regulations have al- Piihlic Works Contract Let For Standoff Kootenai Paving Ltd. of Kim- berry has been awarded a con- tract in the amount of for work in the new Standoff community. The contract .calls for exten- sion of sewer and "water lines in the new sub-division and construction, grading and gra- velling of roads. The finished work will permit essential services to the antici pated 35 new homes and to the Kainai Industries plant site. ways prohibited provincial gov- ernments from setting up their own broadcasting facilities, but the new ruling also forbids edu- cational institutions fi'om doing so unless what are termed "changes in the corporate struc- ture" take place. Pierre Juneau, chairman of the CRTC has told Dr. Wyman he is happy with the type of service CKUA has been provid- ing. Dr. Wyman himself said the station performs a very useful function, particularly in the area of educational broad- casting. Although the university exer- cises no direct control over pin- gram content, many professors are involved in a series of edu- cational talks programs pro- duced by the university's broadcasting services and aired over CKUA, be said. The station also broadcasts recitals by university music students and a regular program by the university student radio society the type of broad- casting that station manager Jack Hagerman says commer- cial stations are unable to han- dle and which are unique to CKUA. Mr. Hagerman, contacted by telephone, said he was pretty much in the dark as to what might happen, except that if the station were to go off the air. there would very likely be some protest from the listen- ers. Several appeared letters had already in the Edmonton Journal opposing the CRTC ruling, he said, and there would probably be more once the sit- uatien became a h'ltle mor cleai'Iy defined. Neither Dr. Wyman or Mr Hagerman would make any o] ficial comment on the possibili ty of the federal governmen taking over the station, but allowing the programming t be handled by the present staff A somewhat similar arrange ment has been made in the past in the field of educationa television. Although the station's opera ting budget last year is paid for by Alberta Govern ment Telephones, the Univer sity of Alberta has held the ac tual broadcast licence continu ously since November, 1927. If CKUA is forced off the air next March it will mean the em of 44 years of cultural and edu- cational broadcasting. r ORTHERN ASBESTOS BUILDING SUPPLIES LTD. 253 12th STREET NORTH PHONE 327-6166 or 327-6161 ON ANY AMOUNT FOR HOME IMPROVERS HOME AND GENERAL CONTRACTORS AND EVERYDAY PEOPLE JUST STARTING WEEK 'AY, SEPT. 21 Good One Side Fir Plywood 4'x8' Vi" 118.22 M. sq. ft. or 3.78 per sheet 138. oti M. sq. ft. or 4.44 per sheet V4" 193.35 M. sq. ft. or 6.19 per sheet 216.83 M. sq. ft. or 6.94 per sheet Vt" 258.35 M. sq. fl. or 8.27 per sheet Standard Fir Sheathing 4'x8' 94.31 M, sq. fl. or 3.02 per sheet ?B" 99.74 M. sq. ft. or 3.19 per sheet Vi" 135.95 M. sq. ft. or 4.35 per sheet Vs" 159.79 M. sq. ft. or 5.11 per sheet 201.98 M. sq, ft. or 6.46 per sheet Fir Select To G 195.04 M. sq. ft.

BILL Compare General Eleetric's Quality Engineered Features: WAYNE GAS DRYER Gas Pump Canopy Was Home For Sassy Sparrow Family Birds Call The Shots In Gas Pump Drama By JOE BALLA Herald Managing Editor The lights on the gasoline pump standard of the Milk River Motor and Implement Company have been out all summer. The failure in the electrical fixtures occurred back in early May. When owner Dean E. Smith went to investigate the j trouble, he discovered that a pair of English sparrows were busy raising a family in a trough under the light canopy. He decided that the fixing of (he lights could wait until the family of sparrows ready 195.04 M. ft. or 6.24 per sheet To aid Ihe growing process o! ;lhe young ones, Mr. Smith I placed grain on top of the gaso- line pumps from time to lime. I Some of the birds became very friendly. They would sit and feed on top of the pump while cars were being serviced. Days grew into weeks and weeks into months, but there was no sign of the birds leaving. By mid-summer there must have been 10 fully grown sparrows using the trough for home. Several times Mr. Smith wanted to repair the light fix- lure, but each time Ihere came a "cheep cheep' from the nest, indicating young ones were still inside. Additional evidence at- testing to this was that several of the mature birds were seen taking food into the nest at reg- ular intervals. Finally, on Aug. 28, Mr. Smith decided to investigate and sec just how many birds he had been raising In his light standard during the sum- mer months. One little head was peaking out of the nest at the time, A reach into the nest showed there was only one sparrow in the nest and it was a mature bird. One leg of the sparrow was securely tied to the nest by an entanglement of binder twins. Even after Mr. Smith took the sparrow and twine out of the nest, he had considerable diffi- culty untangling the bird and the twine. When the task was finally completed, Mr. Smith relumed the sparrow to the nest. There was a sudden gathering of the clan chcaping and chirping and fluttering everywhere. All of a sudden the family of 10 took of[ and they haven't been seen since. The lights above the gasoline pumps at the Milk River Motor and Im- plement Company arc working again, but they seem a lillle dim without the sparrow fam- ily, says Mr, Smith, I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I II on the purchase of your natural gas drytr.
