Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THI ISTHBRIDGE MERAID Friday, April 6, 1973 News in brief Race horses perish in fire VANCOUVER (CP) At least 12 race horses perished Thorsday night when fire swept through a barn at Lansdowne Park in the Vancouver suburb of Richmond. Robert Bruce, 42, gatekeeper at the park, was taken to hospd- tal with undetermined injuries after he was trampled by thor- oughbreds fleeing the fire. The barn, which contained about 35 horses, was reduced to a smouldering ruin within 30 minutes. Firemen said a strong wind kept the flames from spreading to four other barns, although horses stabled in them were turned free as a pre- Diptheria potential hazard VICTORIA (CP) Health Minister Dennis Cocke said Thursday that diphtheria is a "potentially explosive hazard" in British Columbia if present levels do not go down. He said four cases of the dis- ease have been reported in B.C. this year and 29 carriers have been identified. He said diphth- eria re-appeared in B.C- in 1967 after a four-year absence and an increasing number of cases have been reported each year.

Alberta hesitant to start guaranteed income plan Skagit valley controversy Flood issue settlement awaited By IAN HUNTER Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Environment Minister Jack Davis admitted in the House of Commons Thursday that Canada has no assurance from the United Slates that the only issue left to stop the flooding of the Skagit Valley is compensation to the city of Saattle.

Health Minister Neil Crawford said Thursday. He said Alberta is not plan- ning to follow the recent deci- sion of British Columbia to raise the old age pension sup- plement to a month from about Because of additional bene- fits, such as free premiums for medical care Ksurance, "it i would be most likely that the Alberla program is already tie best in the he told the legislature. Mr. Crawford said persons receiving old age pensions are the only group with a form cf guaranteed income. "I would be very, very hesi- tant and would hope that all governments would be very hesitant in branching into the area of guarantees of income beyond the special group of 63 I and over.'1 PREMATURE j The minister also said Alber- ta feels it -would be premature for it to follow Manitoba which last Friday announced it will j conduct an experiment in guar- 1 anteed annual incomes. The federal government will pay 75 per cent of the cost and the provincial government 25 per cent. Replying to Grant Notley. N'ew Democratic Party leader! in Alberta. Mr. Crawford said j such an experiment would not be appropriate at present for Alberta. The province was pre- paring for a major federal-pro- vincial meeting later this month in Ottawa. "At that time, no doubt things like this will come up. But to embark on it prior to that msst- ing doesn't seem to be very likely." MONTREAL (CP) Repre- sentatives of Canadian Na- tional, CP Rail and shop- craft workers Thursday signed a tentative agreement for a two-year contract that, if rati- fied, will cost the S20 million this year and million next year. Railway officials said at a news conference the" a settlement had been reached but voiced concern about iis cost. They also indicated it set guidelines for other labor groups, especially non-operating employees. The companies are still bar- gaining with the United Trans- portation Union, which renre- sents trainmen and fire- men and the Brotherhood of Locomotive En- gineers. Talks with non-oper- ating employees broke down last month when both sides asked for conciliation. George Lach, CN vice-presi- dent for personnel and labor re- lations, said Thursday: "I hope the non-ops bear in mind the high cost of the ment both in wages ana sions. I think the non-ops should be satisfied with a comparable agreement." There was no immediate, offi- cial comment from the non-ops, but sources earlier indicated the railways may have to go further to get a non-ops con- tract- John Clark, chief bargainer for Division No. 4, Railwa_y Em- ployees Department, said the agreement gives the shopcrafts a seven-psr-cent wage hike for 1973, retroactive to Jan. 1, and a 6.5-per-cent boost for 1974. The old two-year contract ex- pired last Dec. 31, with workers earning an average hourly wage of S4.03. Improved job-security bene- fits, better arrange- ments and skill differentials of 30 cents an hour in basic pay rates were also contained in the settlement. FBI post still open ernment hasn't accepted it, Ot- tawa has given official notico that it will not permit the valley to be flooded, he said. Davis was questioned on the controversial issue in the Com- mons by John Fraser (PC- Vancouver South) after Davis appeared to back down Wednes- day from his earlier position that the valley has been saved from flooding. The minister had declared Tuesday that Washington has agreed to meetings between representatives of the U.S. gov- ernment, the Canadian govern- ment, B.C. and Seattle City Light "with a view to terminat- ing" the 1967 agreement be- tween the province and the Seattle power utility under which the flooding would take place. Seattle City light, in spite of opposition from environmental- ists both in B.C. and Washing- ton State, has proceeded with an application before the U.S. Federal Power Commission for permission to raise the level the Ross Dam across the bor- der. If the dam is raised, to pro- vide peaking power for the city of Ssattle under the terms of the 1987 contract wilh B.C., more than 5.000 acres of the Skagit valley in B.C. will be in- undated. But after U.S. embassy and Seattle City Light officials de- nied Wednesday that any agree- ment to stop the flooding scheme had been made by Washington, Davis denied giv- ing this impression. He said that all he had stated was that the U.S. had agreed "to come to a meeting." This in itself, he insisted, was an ad- mission that Washington has changed its position on the question. In the Commons Thursday, the minister said that in his Tuesday statement to the House, he had been expressing Canada's point of view, not that of the U.S. Fraser asked Davis tf tha U.S. government has officially assured the Canadian govern- ment "that the only question to negotiate is the question of compensation." "No I cannot give that assur- ance to the Davis re- plied. "The main purport of the statement I made was that an agreement had been readied between the countries to hold meetings between the principal parties, British Columbia and Seattle CityLight, with a view, from our point of view, of ter- minating the he stated.

Sullivan lead-rinc mire here returned to their jobs Thursday night alter ten- tative settlement of a dispute involving hot, oxidizing ore. James Keuhl, a spokesman for the United Mine Workers of America, said terms of the set- tlement include changes in safely procedures. A Cominco spokesman said the settlement includes a provision that the oxidizing ore be removed on a continuous work schedule. Union spokesmen said the walkout, which started Monday, was over fumes and heat from the ore. The walkout threaten- ed the jobs of 4.500 Cominco workers st Kimberley and Trail. A company spokesman said the real issue was overtime pay for men who had been placed on seven-day rotating shifts. He said a hearing in British Coluir bia Supreme Court on COHIHSCO'S request for an injunction to the walk- out would proceed as icneduled today in Vancouver. EDMONTON (CP) Expan- sion of university facilities to accommodate more doctors won't help the smaller urban centres which are short of physicians, Jim Foster, minis- ter of advanced education, said Thursday night. C. K. French (SC Hanna- Oyen) had told the minister in the legislature that students are being turned away from facul ties of medicine and dentistry hi the province. rural areas today we are short of medical people and dentists. The logical answer I would think to this whole prob- lem would be to expand facili- ties and provide graduates Mr. Foster said there is no merit in expanding facilities Arrests made in kidnapping KIRCHHELM BOLANDEN (Reuter) West German po- lice arrested two men today and were questioning them in connection with Thursday night's kidnapping of two wom- en hostages after a bank raid, a police spokesman said. He said it was not yet certain that the two were the armed gunmen who made off with a one-million mark ran- som ffer the bank raid in the Ruhr industrial city of Moea- chengladbach. "They were detained after they drove through a road block we had set the spokesman said. j simply to accommodate more doctors if there is no other in- centive for them to go to the smaller centres. Many medical school grad- uates were even leaving the province to go to the United States and parts of the world. "Maybe there are other ar- rangements which can be made to accommodate the medical requirements of the smaller ur- ban lie said- Grant Notley, New Democrat- ic Party leader in Alberta, sug- gested the minister might con- sider renewal of the "bursary Formerly, hs said, school di- visions would send young peo- ple to university provided they agreed to come back to their home community for three or four years to teach. Mr. Foster said the idea was "worth thinking about."
