Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, April 24, 1973 Gives Herself up Irma Salguero, 22, art illegal immigrant from Guat- emala who is expecting a baby in three or four weeks, is consoled by her husband, Israel, after deciding to give herself up to immigration authorities in Toronto. She came to Canada for a holiday Feb. 3 and has been afraid of authorities since she ignored an inquiry hearing. Inventor working on auto speed-warning system PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. (CP) Inventor Brian Corri- gan has figured out what he feels is a foolproof method of en- suring no competitor steals his novel speed-warning system for motorists. He is prepared to starve to keep the cost of the invention down. The unique safety device de- veloped by Mr. Corrigan and c o-inventor Barry Canton records the speed of vehicles electronically and flashes a "too fast" warning from a lighted sign at motorists ex- ceeding the speed limit. Mr. Corrigan, 38, who left a full-time job as an instrument techniciar. at Northwood Pulp Ltd. in this central British Co- lumbia city to develop the sys- tem, says he and his wife and nine children have come close to starvation in three years of development work. "We've already lost our house since come to Canada and had our furniture says Mr. Corrigan, who first conceived the idea for the sys- tem while spending 13 years in the United Kingdom as an air- craft engineer with the Royal Air Force and with British Air- craft Corp. He said he spent six weeks on welfare during nine months when he worked full-time on the system and now is looking for a part-time sales position to tide him over until the project gains the acceptance he believes it deserves. He said that at time the family, with children ranging in ages frcm three to 14 years, got by on gifts of food and clothing from friends. "Everything is poised now for us to go into business selling the said Mr. Corrigan. "I'm sure we're going to get a breakthrough very soon. The device was tested on Highway 16 near the outskirts of Prince George last month, resulting in a 20-per-cent drop in speeding. Members of city council have complimented the inventors, Prince George school board of- ficials have expressed interest in the idea for traffic control in schccl zones and local RCMP officials are enthusiastic about the invention. "I think he may have some- thing says Cpl. Sandy Fraser of the city detachment. "At first I didn't think it would work, but now I feel there are many uses for it." Cpl. Frasr said the system could supplement radar for catching speeding motorists and be used for traffic counts to de- termine congested areas. HAS INQUIRIES Mr. Corrigan said he has had inquiries from other municipal- ities in B.C. about the system and has received tacit support from the provincial department of industrial development trade and commerce. Asked if he worries about somebody else stealing the idea and marketing the device be- fore him, Mr. Corrian replied: "I lay awake at nigiiis some- time thinking about it." "But I have the most effec- tive method of beating anyone else. I'll starve myself to death, if necessary, to keep down the cost of the system." The test jnodel, which cost to develop over a three- year period, was offered to the city as a gift. The city will pay the installation costs when the system is located per- manently at a main highway junction. Additional units can be built at a cost of about FLASHES WARNING The system incorporates a metal and wood box, suspended above the road, that flashes the words "too fast" on a dark-blue screen at speeding motorists. The flashing blue sign is out of action temporarily while Highway 16 is widened to four lanes, but will be erected again next month when the highway Airports head tax in sight HELENA, Mont. (AP) Montana airports are likely to institute passenger boarding taxes of up to per person before the year is cut, Willison E. Hunt, director of the Mon- tana Aeronautics Division, said today. "I think the hesd tax will probably go into effect and will probably remain effective for some time to he said. The recsnt session of the state legislature authorized agencies sponsoring municipal airports to levy taxes of up to on each passenger boarding a plane. The tax is rot manda- tory, applies only to passengers of aircraft weighing over 500 pounds and may be charged to a traveller only once for a 24-hour period. is reopened. B.C. highways department of- ficials rejected the device ini- tially as "gadgetry and not too relevant to highways prob- said Mr. Corrigan. But they issued a permit to test the system after city engineering officials approved the project. Interest in the system also has been expressed by federal parks officials as a possible avalanche warning device for national parks.

Kissinger said Monday Pres- ident Nixon seeks to build a new Atlantic Charter with the United States' European allies this year, based on an easing of economic frictions and on the continued presence of U.S. forces in Europe. The president's chief foreign policy adviser outlined a blue- print for a revitalized Atlantic Alliance in an address prepared for the annual meeting The Associated Press, presenting the administration's first major policy statement in what Nixon has called "the year of Eu- rope." The blueprint, Kissinger said, "is not an American pre- scription but an appeal for a joint effort" to agree upon "a clear set of common objectives. J9 "The historic opportunity for this generation is to build a new structure of international rela- tions for the decades ahead. A revitalized Atlantic partnership is indispensable for it." Kissinger said Nixon is hold- ing a series of talks with lead- ers of such Western European allies as Britain, Italy, West Germany and France because he believes that the political, military and economic issues "must be addressed at the high- est level." "The United States proposes to its Atlantic partners that, by the time the president travels to Europe toward the end of the year, we will have worked out a new Atlantic Charter setting the goals for the Kissinger said. A cornerstone of the charter was the continued presence of U.S. forces in Europe. "The president has asked me to state that America remains committed to doing its fair share in Atlantic defence. He is adamantly opposed to unilateral withdrawals of U.S. forces from Europe." Kissinger traced what he called "a truly remarkable pe- riod of East-West diplomacy" which he said had produced agreement on Berlin, the strate- gic-arms accords and the begin- ning of talks on Europen secur- ity and force reductions. "Yet this very success has created its own he said, referring to "an increas- ing uneasiness that super- power diplomacy might sacri- fice the interests of traditional allies and other friends." ASKS FOR TRUST He said the United States has been scrupulous in consulting its allies when their interests are affected. "Yet some of our friends in Europe have seemed unwilling to accord America the same trust in our motives as they received from us or to grant us the same tactical flexi- bility that they have employed in pursuit of their own pol- icies."
