Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, April 9, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Skydiver survives without parachute STERLING, 111. (AP) "I still can't believe says a skydiver who survived after his parachute failed to open fully in a jump from feet. Jeff Wetzell of Rock Falls, 111., broke two ankles and a vertebra when he landed in a wet, newly plowed field., Wetzell, 26, and two fellow members of the Rock River Valley Sky Diving Club were attempting Sunday to build a star by joining hands and falling free for 30 seconds. "There were only two of us that got and Larry the construction laborer said Monday. "At feet, I looked down, saw we were off our spot, and I shook loose to start tracking over. "At about feet, I pulled the ripcord and nothing came out. I waited and still nothing happened." ALL FOULED UP Wetzell, a veteran of more than 150 jumps, said he tried to open the safety chute but "there was a malfunction and I couldn't release it." "Everything was fouled up, I couldn't get loose. I just waited and prayed that something would work out. "It did. I got a partial chute." Bob Brandt, pilot of the chutists' plane, estimated that Wetzell's parachute blossomed about one-third at an altitude of about 400 to 700 teet. Impact speed under those conditions would be about 50 miles an hour. Two boys from a nearby farm were the first to reach Wetzell. "I looked up and couldn't believe it I was still he said.

Ltd. says. For each of the past 12 months a record monthly payment has been set. The quarter's total was against a year earlier. Troops watch Tories want test Quebec? of NDP feelings OTTAWA (CP) An exercise that a newspaper interpreted as a plan to occupy Quebec in case of civil crisis was only one of many conducted by the armed forces as it seeks to fulfil its mandate, an armed forces spokesman said today. The spokesman said the April, 1972, Exercise Neat Pitch was a study on methods of operation and procedure in the event the forces were called to aid the civil power anywhere in Canada. The Quebec newspaper Le Jour in an article entitled Occupation of Quebec, interpreted the exercise held in the Montreal area to mean the government planned to use the armed forces in case of civil crisis. The newspaper says the meeting resulted from a new policy being sought by the federal government following the October, 1970, Front de Liberation du Quebec crisis. The armed forces spokesman said there are no contingency plans for the occupation of Quebec or any other province. If the reply is not satisfac- tory, the committee will decide Wednesday or Thursday whether to subpoena the information it wants. In a letter released by the committee Monday, James St. Clair, President Nixon's chief impeachment lawyer, indicated the White House is not prepared to surrender all 42 presidential conversations the committee-wants. There was a possibility that partial compliance by the White House will be sufficient to head off the confrontation Jthat would be produced by the issue of a subpoena. OTTAWA (CP) A Con- servative attempt to force an- other confidence showdown with the minority Liberal government drew both scorn and a hint of sympathy Monday from the New Democrats. The Conservatives moved to take advantage of what they see as wavering NDP support for the government by calling for an opposition day in the week of April 22-27. This would provide them with a chance to move non- confidence in the government on a motion molded as closely as possible to NDP positions. Conservative House Leader Tom BM! said in an interview he understands the matter is being considered by Prime Minister Trudeau and a reply is expected today. If the government does not comply with the request, the Conservatives might force lengthy debate on a proposal to adjourn the House Wednesday until April 22 for an Easter recess. This could keep the Commons sitting through the proposed break. Timing of Finance Minister John Turner's budget, expected late this month or early in May, is behind the Conservative attempt to take advantage of NDP discontent. Mr. Bell said there is an air of indefiniteness about the government's future "and we feel the air should be cleared before the budget." The Conservatives want to test the latest NDP feelings soon, rather than waiting to see how it reacts in the budget debate when, as one Conservative said, "NDP threats may be forgotten The NDP scorn and a hint of sympathy over the attempt to force a confidence vote both came from House Leader Stanley Knowles. He said in an interview the bid is "just part of the game the Tories are playing" and added that it is premature for Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield to ask for an opposi- tion day because the, matter has not been raised in House leaders' meetings. There are 13 opposition opposition parties can choose the topic of before the end of June. Two of them are subject to non-confidence votes. Mr, Knowles hinted his party might have more sympathy for the Conservative position if the government is slow in produc- ing budget. "The basic issue is what budget date the government has in mind. If the budget comes soon, then a confidence motion before it would be a bit SUPPORT MAY SHIFT However, he said a late budget might jeopardize NDP support for the government. "We want the budget in late April. If we don't get it by then there's no telling what will happen." Mr. Stanfield told reporters his request was'not based on weekend comments by NDP Leader David Lewis who called for certain legislative action by the government in return for his party's support. "I don't think it would be wise to plan party strategy around the threats of Mr. Lewis." However. Mr. Bell said the NDP leader's comments have 3 lot to do with his party's bid to negotiate an opposition day in return for agreement to recess. He said his feeling is that an election is more of a possibility now than it was a few months ago, with NDP restlessness a key factor. "Each time they whip people up for an election they get cooled off, but not as cool as they were before. The fever is gradually building up." The Conservatives do not want to wait for NDP support on the budget because "they supported the government on it last year and I'd be surprised if they didn't this year." Boyle defence MEDIA, Pa.
