Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 25, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Manitoba To Meet Increase In North Area Power Needs WINNIPEG (CP) A bitter conservationist-versus-develo- per battle over hydro develop- ment of the Manitoba north reached a decision this week when the provincial government announced a plan to meet in- creasing power needs "with no damage to the environment." Included in the announcement was word to the residents of South Indian Lake, a settlement of Indians and Metis, that planned power developments would not require them to relo- they would have been forced to under the original plan for a high-level diversion of the Churchill River. The diversion was to have been carried out as part of the multi-million-dollar Nelson River power project. Wednesday's announcemen' said any further diversion of the Churchill River, via southern Indian Lake, would not raise the lake level more than 10 feet above the normal range of lev- els. At this level, no settled com- munity adjacent to the lake would be affected. New Cabinet Minister Appointed CHARLOTTETOWN (CP) Premier Alex 'Campbell named a new member to his cabinet yesterday and gave added re- sponsibilities to two other min- isters in cabinet changes brought on by the death of a minister. Robert Schurman, member of the legislature for 4th Prince, was brought into the cabinet to become minister of community services with responsibility for pollution control. Education Minister Gordon L. Bennett also takes on the re- sponsibilities of the attorney- general's office, and Fisheries Minister Brace Stewart also be- comes responsible for the de- partment of labor, industry and commerce. The addition of Mr. Schurman brings cabinet membership to 10, where it stood prior to the death this week of J. Elmer Banchard, former attorney-gen- eral and minister of labor, in- dustry and commerce. David Cass-Bcggs, chairman of Manitoba Hydro, said the needs of the Nelson River pro- ject would be met by control of Lake Winnipeg, combined with a low-level diversion of the Churchill. TO BEGIN IMMEDIATELY He said this control, through improvement of existing chan- nels and cutting iC new chan- nels, is to begin immediately for completion by the full of 1974. Work on the Churchill diver- sion is to begin in 1972, he said, for completion by 1976. While Mr. Cass-Beggs was making the announcement at a news conference hsrc, Premier Ed Schreyer was at South In- dian Lake, 450 miles northwest of Winnipeg, bringing the news to the 700 residents. The high-level diversion pro- posed originally, putting the 32 feet above normal lev- els, would have turned it into a vast reservoir and flooded out the settlements of South Indian Lake and Pickerel Narrows. The stored-up water would have been channelled into the Nelson River system while the flow of the Churchill, which feeds out of the' lake its course to Hudson Bay, would have been reduced sharply.

Friday, Soplombor 25, 1970 THE tETHBRIDGE HERAtD 21 Soap Firms On Carpet WASHINGTON (AP) The Federal Trade Commission ac- cused the tiiree major manufac- turers of enzyme detergents yesterday of false advertising in claiming their products arc effective against all stains. In a proposed complaint, which the FTC said would be issued against Procter and Gamble Co., Colgate-Palmolive Co. and Lever Brothers Co. toe., the agency said the ad- vertising was "unfair, false, misleading and deceptive." It gave the firms a chance to settle the complaint through a consent order which would re- quire future enzyme detergent advertising to list types of stains "which the product can- not reasonably be expected to remove." Procter and Gamble denied the FTC contention and said it would contest the complaint. The other two companies had no immediate comment. Procter and Gamgle said in a prepared statement: "We have never said that our en- zyme products remove all stains." The proposed complaint against Procter ar.d Gamble cited advertising for the prod- uct lines Gain, Biz, and Tide XK. The complaining against Colgate-Palmolive listed Punch, Axion and Ajax, and the com- plaint against Lever Brothers cited Drive, En-Solve and Amaze. BEEF SLIPPING Roast beef is the most popu- lar dish in Britain, but a poll in- dicates steak is gaining favor. Hair Is Smash Hit In French Style MONTREAL (CP) Hair, French-Canadian style, opened here' amid all the pomp and ceremony that surrounds a theatrical first- More than two dozen bilin- gual, versatile kids performed North America's first French- language yersion of the smash rock musical at La Comedie Canadi.enne, and the black-tie crowd of about 300 was thrilled. Huge spotlights swept over the colorfully-painted theatre as the modish, select audience ar- rived at the theatre, just across from the giant Place des Arts in downtown Montreal. Place des Arts refused to stage Hair last year because of the controversial nude scenes. One theatre critic, Marilyn Beker of The Gazette, described :he performance as an "abso- lute and the audience, ihough somewhat reserved, seemed to share ber enthusi- asm. Holding flowers and red paper hearts, the audience cheered and applauded continuously throughout the three-hour musi- cal, although most turned down gleeful invitations from the per- formers to join in the merri- ment. THEMES UNCHANGED Hail- was translated into French by actor-playwright Uratien Gelinas and journalist Courtemanche. It contained several allusions to Quebec life and politics, but the basic themes of the U.S. production 'emained the same. Francois Guy as Claude and Sebastian as Bcrger drew the most raves and formed a solid core for the remaining 25 young men and women. All the voices were strong and confident with the fast-moving French-lan- guage score. Marie-Louise Dion as Jeanie, the love-struck and unfortunate girl, handled her part with ease and showed a keen sense of comedy. The sets and lighting were su- perb and well-suited to the com- pact theatre. .In an interview earlier, Mr. Gelinas predicted that Hair will become a "classic" in time. "It had a strong effect not only on the Mr. Geli- nas said, "but also on the phi- losophy of life." WHEEL OF A Be Prepared For Winter WITH THE PURCHASE OF TWO FOUR SEASONS G-T PREMIUM ENGINEERED ORBITREAD RETREADS -OR- WITH PURCHASE OF TWO Byelection Dates To Be Set Shortly OTTAWA (CP) Prime Min- uter Trudeau said Thursday he will announce on or about Mon- day Oct. 5, the date for three byelections. Oct. 5 is the date for the re- sumption of Parliament and Mr. Tnideau told reporters he will make ths announcement in the Commons if possible. Commons vacancies exist in the two Quebec ridings of Fron- tenac and Labelle and in the Manitoba constituency of Lis- gar. Frontenac was held by a Creditiste, Labelle by former defence minister Leo Cadieux, now ambassador to France, and Lisgar by a Conservative. Mr. Trudeau also said he will appoint some senators soon and make some changes among par- liamentary secretaries. FATSO MUD AND SNOW ENGINEERED ORBITREAD RETREADS NEW WHEEL TO FIT AIL POPULAR MAKES World Gold Transactions To Diminish COPENHAGEN (CP) Gold will continue to be the basis of the money system but it will diminish in relative importance to other means of settling inter- national transactions, Pierre- Paul Schweitzer of the Interna- tional Monetary Fund said Thursday. The IMF's managing director told a news conference that gold has taken on new importance recently, when countries and the fund itself have begun buy- ing and selling it. He was replying to a question about the IMF's institution of Special Drawing Rights (SDR) as an additional means of set- tling international accounts be- tween governments, along with gold .US. dollars, Schweitzer said SDR will not replace gold because the draw- ing rights were based on gold the same as U.S. dollars. This made one SDR equivalent to one U.S. dollar in inter-govern- ment bookkeeping. The IMF created million SDR's last Jan. 1 and will add equivalent amounts at the start of 1971 and 1972. Schweitzer has until mid-1977, to write a report on the use of beyond that year, but he told reporters he would be sur- prised if SDR's "do not keep on NOW LET IT SNOW AS IT MAY-YOU'RE PREPARED "MORE OF A TIRE FROM MO-TIRES" NORTH LETHBRIDGE MO-TIRES CORNER 3rd AVENUE and 13th STREET NORTH PHONE 327-3181 Effective Oct. 8th We Will Remain Open Thursday and Friday till 9 p.m. New Course Theory Of Football WINNIPEG (CP) A new course was announced Thursday by the University of of foot- ball technique. Physical Education Direc- tor Dave Anderson said: "We feel strongly that a course of this nature, which concentrates on actual theory behind football tech- niques and applies this theory to a coaching situa- tion, should be offered to the broadest spectrum of people involved in the sport." Cost of the course is and it is being offered to community recreational coaches and public school physical education instruc- tors. No reference was made to possible applications from Winnipeg Blue Bombers, who have a firm hold on last place in the Western Football Conference. A Full Week of Specials at...
