Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuttdiy, April 30, 1974 Orphans denied compensation OTTAWA (CP) The Su- preme Court of Canada has re- fused to award the orphans of a couple killed in a 1963 air crash compensation for loss of 'future estate. The unanimous decision of five judges of the court upheld a contention that in this area the Quebec Civil Code differs from the common law of the other provinces of Canada. The case revolved around the amount of damages to be awarded Francine Merle Pan- tel, Sharon Pantel and Eleanor Pantel, children of Mr. and Mrs. Saul Pantel. The parents were killed in a Trans-Canada Airlines (now Air Canada) DC-8 crash at Ste. Therese, Que., in 1963 in which 118 persons were killed. The case was the last of the damage suits that arose from that crash. The trial judge awarded the three children a total of after taking into consideration the estimated value of the Pantels' estate had they lived longer. On appeal the future-estate aspect was struck out and the damages were reduced to The Supreme Court supported the appeal court but for other reasons increased the total damages to During the three trials there was much argument about fu- ture estate, with Air Canada saying both that the Civil Code does not provide for com- pensation for the loss of it and that at any rate it is impossible to compute. Lawyers for the family relied on the fact that such compensation is paid in the rest of Canada. But Justice Louise-Philippe Pigeon supported the appeal court saying that under the Civil Code the loss of any hope of inheriting a larger estate if the deceased had lived a nor- mal life cannot be regarded as damages caused by his death. Taxation delayed OTTAWA (CP) A revenue department spokesman said today that the postal strike ap- pears to have put the depart- ment behind last year in num- ber of tax returns received. Up to last Thursday the de- partment had received 6.86 million returns from individuals compared with 7.19 million by the same date last year. Comparable figures on corporation returns were not available. However, the tax department was well ahead in processing tax returns.

Foreign Car (Lethbridge) Ltd 1102-3rd Ave. South, Lethbridge, Alberta Tel: 328-9651 Spanish siesta to stop? New York Times Service MADRID Spanish life- styles, old and new, are being cramped by the energy crisis. The long lunch hour, followed possibly by a siesta, will be sharply curtailed if the government has its way, and the sporty Spanish driver will have to curb his tendency to consider every thoroughfare a race track. In the interest of saving oil not be cause it is scarce but because it costs so much speed limits have been imposed for the first time and daylight saving time has been introduced for an indefinite period. Of all the measures, the most far-reaching and most cautiously considered is a change in working hours that the cabinet has said it wishes to introduce in public offices. A month's study will be made before the changes take effect the minister of information explained. They have deep sociological implications. An official recalled past efforts to modify the leisurely schedule of Spanish living "because it no longer corresponds to the requirements of modern life." They failed, he said, because no one felt any particular urgency about change. Under the proposed system the lunch period would be cut to an hour or less. Presumably wage-earners longer return home to enjoy their main meal in the middle of the day, which would eliminate at least two rush hours, with their drain on gasoline supplies. The shorter day would also cut electricity consumption. Officials said most young people would readily accept the sandwich or quick snack if it meant finishing the working dar earlier. Theatre and movie schedules will have to be rearranged, and the government said television programs would also be rescheduled; at the moment prime time is 10 p.m. or later. GROWTH Madrid and other cities like Barcelona have grown considerably in recent years as urbanization has followed industrialization, with new housing developments sprouting miles from work centers. A secretary in a government office said she spent an hour to get to work and an hour to return home, a schedule that leaves little time for the traditional big iunch. In some ministries a continuous day is already practiced in the sense that many employees finish at p.m. and do not return. Many lake on other jobs to make ends meet. Moonlighting, pluriempleo, as it is called here has become a major characteristic of the economy. Policemen drive taxis, army officers are floorwalkers in department stores, journalists do public- relations work. The phenomenon is encouraged by inflation in the price of almost anything a Spaniard needs or wants, and in an expanding economy the needs and wants are constantly rising. highlights TUESDAY SPORTS SPECIAL: Stanley Cup Play-off, p.m., Ch. 7.
