Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta J4 THE LETHBRIDCE HEUAID Friduy, Siplemb.r J4, 1971 Record seed profit Western Canadian Seed Pro- cessors Lid. of LcLlibridge an- nounced today a profit for Ihc year ending July 31 amounting to a record or 37 cents a share. This compares with or 20 cents per share for the same period last year. Tliis trend was established two years ago when the com- pany decided to develop and concentrate on institulional and retail sales rather than on bulk products. Sales rose from 543.200 to The promotion and subse- quent expansion of rapeseed production in southern Alberta was another significant factor responsible for the increased profit. Plans call for a further ex- tension into the finished prod- uct market, both at the insti- tutional and retail levels, with the development ot additional oil-based products, Profit margins on the sale of finished products are recog- nized as being larger and more stable than those realized on the sale of bulk products.

There is a limit of nine young- sters in the class, ranging in age from eight to 12. Most have difficulty with reading and mathematics, and they come from throughout the city. "These children can learn bul they iave found i; difficult in a normal classroom Mr. Puckett said. "My job is lo invent ways to reach these youngsters.

"Wn have children in Ihe Lelhhridgc school system and can only provide nine wilh Ihc special instruction they need. So you see nhat we are up against." Several subjects are taught in the class math, reading, art, music, enrichment (dis- cussing and analyzing physical education, health and science. Tho classes last from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., five days a week. "If classes like this didn't exist, these children would just sit in a regular classroom and drift, but now they can re- ceive closer attention and ulti- mately return to the normal classroom Mr. Puckett said. Children poisoning avoidable The majority of children's poisoning cases rushed through the emergency doors at Leth- bridge hospitals result when parents have momentarily left drugs within the reach of chil- dren. Dr. A. A. Byrne, city medi- cal health officer says parents have a tendency to drop the package of medicine they are about to take when the doorbell or phone rings. During the seconds it takes to answer the ring a child who sees something new within his reach tastes it. i Although the rate of child poisonings in Lefhbridgc has not increased noticeably this year, Dr. Byrne said, children under four years old account for most of the poisoning cases. Most children can't remem- ber warnings before that age and anything new has a tend- ency to gel into their mouths, he said. The second most serious cause of child poisoning occurs when children swallow house- hold chemicals such as soaps, lyes and bleaches. Children are particularly fas- cinated by brightly colored packages, he said. He warns parents that even foul-smelling objects are tasted by children.

By LARRY BENNETT Slaff Writer Excellence In education is the answer to Canada's identity crisis. Dr. Philip Deane, dean of arts and science of the University of Lethbridge, was the first fea- tured speaker at the Southern Alberta Council on Public Af- fairs. He is concerned about the Canadian identity, he said, and "it is more imperilled than the identity of any other country it is one of the most im- perilled identities in history be- cause t h e threat is so well- meant and so indifferent." "We risk being swallowed by the U.S. because the U.S. does not wish to swallow us." Dr. Deane is certain an ap- plication for Canadian amalga- mation with the U.S. would not be approved. "We would probably be told to remain what we are a distinctive national state not governed uhstensibly by Washington. Yet the degree of control increases, and is like- ly to further increase." The U.S. will never need to invade Canada, because it will happily sell America all of the precious natural resources they want. Canadians, "like the rest of the world, are committed to the pursuit of happiness." Tin concept of happiness is not easily agreed upon and is not even definable. "Most of the world seems bent upon settling for affluence as a substitute for Dr. Deane said. Modern technology has made it possible for everyone to have great amounts of affluence and as long as persons are commit- ted to affluence they are also committed to technology. "Once we are committed to technology, we arc committed j to American technology be- cause it is streets ahead of any others. It may appear to limp occasionally but it is still the leader in the field." In the area of technology the computer is the most pro- ductive system apart from the human brain. The computer greatly-facilitates the produc- tion of more computers. The country which owns the most computers will be able to pro- duce the most and stay ahead j in the resulting technology. "Other countries want Am- erican technology. They pay money to get it. Frenchmen have been investing francs to help IBM take over the French computer industry. "We in Canada are doing the same. We often provide the money with which American comnanies buy our economy. We invest hi American compa- nies because in our pursuit for affluence we believe they can make more money for us than Canadian companies. "Technologically advanced countries cannot retreat from tectaology. They would be swamped with Dr. Deane said. Poverty ridden, backward countries h a v e no other exam pie to follow hut the successful technological countries. Canadians are not willing to price of they are not willing to abandon Ihe pursuit of affluence. The problem as seen by Dr. Deane is how to avoid assimila- tion. The answer he presented was Uie pursuit and fostering of ex- cellence through Hie educa- tional system. Our education must aim at making this a well-informed na- tion which can manage the way of lifp.'it has chosen. "I am saying that in this land of abundance and good fortune, we have a chance for greatness, for achievements which will be for us, the sort of identity which cannot be! eradicated or assimilated.
