Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, August 7, 1970 Alberta Crop Prospects Satisfactory CALGARY (CP) - Crop pr'ospects throughout Alberta continue to be satisfactory and all grains were expected to yield better than in 1969, the Alberta Wheat Pool said in its weekly crop report Thursday. Because of disrupted mail service full coverage of the province was unavailable, but the Wheat Pool said the shorter report can be considered reliable. Moisture reserves decreased last week, but were better in all areas than at the same date last year. Crops in southern and southeastern Alberta will have lower yields than the rest of the province because of lack of moisture. Harvesting of barley and winter crops had commenced in some areas, but will be later in central Alberta than in other arsas because of heavy rains. Yields will be above average where hail has not struck. Yields of all gr'ain in the Peace River area are expected to be better than 1969 but below the provincial average. Harvesting of rye and barley were expected to begin soon. Young Sniper Wounds Two VANCOUVER (CP) - An elderly Danish tourist and his son-in-law were slightly wounded Thursday night when a young sniper fired about a dozen shots from the roof of an apartment building in the city's west end. Karl Pedersen, 76, and son-in-law Aage Lauritzen, 44, of suburban Richmond, were hit in the neck and head, respectively. They were reported in satisfactory condition in hospital. Showdown On Manitoba Auto Insurance WINNIPEG (CP) - An adjournment until Monday morning was called today in the Manitoba legislature, delaying the final show-down on the NDP government's controversial automobile insurance bill. Still confronting the house, after a morning in which the government won two procedural votes dealing with the auto legislation, is the issue of sending the bill to committee of the whole, a stage which could pro- duce any number of crucial amendments. The adjournment motion was made by Premier Ed Schreyer, who said the members needed some time off after the pres- Top Industry Officials Receive Pay Increase LONDON (CP) - The new Conservative government has announced substantial salary increases for the heads of 10 nationalized industries-hours after the executives were urged by senior ministers to exercise anti-inflationary restraint i n granting wage raises to their employees. "The Great Tory Pay Boob" was how a head line-writer for the tabloid Sun described the timing of the salary-increase announcement, which came Thursday night. Some Conservative MPs were reported indignant about the affair and apprehensive that it may have undermined the delicately-balanced incomes policy of Prime Minister Heath's cabinet. The increases for the chairmen and deputy chairmen of the state-owned firms range between �30 and �50 ($75 and $125) a week. They come as the third stage of a delayed1 settlement which was reported on last year by an economic watchdog organization established under the former Labor government, the prices and incomes board. Also to receive significant salary improvements are about 5,000 top civil servants, 100 board members of nationalized industries and various other top government advisers. Among the industrial chairmen benefiting from the announcement by the civil service department are Lord Robens oJ the national coal board, Sir Norman Elliott of the electricity council, Sir Henry Jones of the gas council and Lord Hall of the post office. Second American Official Kidnapped MONTEVIDEO (AP) - The Tupamaros urban guerrillas confirmed today they had kidnapped a 65-year-old United States adviser to the Uruguayan government and are holding him along with another American and a Brazilian diplomat seized a week ago. The confirmation came in a telephone call to Montevideo radio stations from a person identifying himself as a spokesman for the left-wing guerrilla group. The caller said Claude Fly, a U.S. soil specialist under private contract to the Uruguayan ministry of livestock and agriculture, would suffer the same fate as the other two kidnap victims. A spokesman for the U.S. em- bassy and Uruguayan police confirmed that Fly, under contract from a private consulting firm, International Development Services Inc., is missing. A Uruguayan radio station earlier had reported that Fly's automobile had been found abandoned near his laboratory in the suburb of Colon, about 12 miles' north of downtown Montevideo. The U.S. embassy said Fly has been working with the ministry since 1968. An official of the U.S. Agency for International Development, Dan A. Mitrione, an adviser to the Uruguayan police, and Brazilian consul Aloysio Mares Dias Gomide were seized a week ago today by the Tupamaros. Near sures of a hectic week, and was passed by a voice vote. The legislature first defeated a Conservative amendment to send the compulsory, state-operated scheme back to the public utilities committee as Liberal Democratic Larry Desjardins supported the NDP and Speaker Ben Hanuschak cast his fourth tie-breaking vote in favor of the government. The Speaker's vote was not needed on the second motion, to adopt the utilities committee report on its earlier public hearings. Independent Gordon Beard of Churchill joined the government ranks this time and the report was adopted 29 to 27. Government victories on both today's motions had been expected after1 Mr. Desjardins Thursday night opposed a Liberal amendment that also would have returned the bill to the utilities committee, but under slightly different terms of reference. The floor vote on each amendment was 28 to 28, requiring the speaker to break the tie. He did it twice before, on second reading and on a Conservative motion to give the bill a six-month hoist. The NDP has 28 members in the 57-seat house including the Speaker. There are 22 Conservatives, four Liberals and one Social Credit member in addition to Mr. Desjardins and Mr. Beard. Outside the chamber, Mr. Beard said his vote did not indicate any change in attitude on his part. He noted that he had voted with the opposition earlier to attempt to get the bill into committee and now was simply voting with the government to put the bill into a different committee. "There will still be lots of time to vote against it," he said. QFG smooth OFC light OFC mellow O.F.C. CANADIAN WHISKY VALLETFiaO. CANADA QFG CANADIAN WHISKY GREAT!

SI I1 9 9 SI Si s i LOS ANGELES (Reuters) -Judge Charles Older prepared to act today on a defence request to produce evidence it claimed would show the Sharon Tate murders were committed by "someone else." "We hope to produce evidence to that effect," said Paul Fitzgerald, defence lawyer for Patricia Krenwinkel, 22. She is one of four charged in five grisly slayings in Miss Tate's Hollywood mansion last Aug. 9 and two murders the next day. "We are under instructions not to discuss the (alleged new evidence) in public until the court has ruled on it," Fitzgerald said. A hearing was set for today on the request. Then chief prosecution witness Linda Kasabian will resume testimony in her 10th day on the stand. A gruesome photograph of the stabbed and blood-smeared body of Miss Tate, a film star, reduced Mrs. Kasabian to tears Thursday and sparked a legal row. Miss Tate, 27 and eight months pregnant, was stabbed 16 times in her hilltop estate.

Project officials said the number of days in July with hail was below normal in Alberta. However, the storms were of heavy intensity. On each of the eight days, more than 100 hail reports were received from farmers and in all cases, some of the stones were larger than golf balls. Nearly all the hail storms were on a wide belt ranging from Calgary to Edmonton. The Alberta Crop insurance Corp. in Calgary said it has received 872 claims on its hail insurance program, slightly higher than last year. A spokesman said the violence of some of the storms was probably the worst ever experienced in the province. The worst previous year' for hail damage was I960 when most of the damage was reported between Lethbridge and Calgary. w into sobs when shown the picture. Older ordered a 10-mlnute recess to allow her to recover. Mrs. Kasabian did not return to court and her lawyer, Ronald Goldman, asked for a session in the judge's chambers to protest her treatment by Irving Kana-rek, lawyer for the 35-year-old Manson, accused of masterminding the murders. Manson and Miss Krenwinkel along with Susan Atkins, 22, and Leslie Van Houten, 20, are on trial on charges arising from the killings. Young Kennedy, Cousin, Placed On Probation BARNSTABLE, Mass. (AP) - Marijuana possession charges against two 16-year-old Kennedy cousins were continued Thursday until September, 1971, by a judge who said he then would dismiss the case if the youths keep out of trouble. Robert F. Kennedy Jr". and R. Sargent Shriver III were accompanied by family members and lawyers as they heard the decison by Judge Henry L. Murphy in a private session of juvenile court here. Both boys were charged with being delinquent by possession of marijuana in an incident July 10. With them in the courtroom were their uncle, Senator Edward M. Kennedy (Dem. Mass.); Ethel Kennedy, mother of Robert and widow of the U.S. senator1 from New York, and Mr. and Mrs. R. Sargent Shriver Jr. Shriver is a former U.S. ambassador o France. The judge's action meant ^ there was no ruling of guilt or innocence in the cases. He said the charges against the cousins would be dismissed Sept. 16, 1971, "unless they have difficulty of some ind."

Alberta's Sewage Treatment Regulations Are Strictest EDMONTON (CP) - Premiers from other provinces were surprised to learn Alberta's sewage treatment regulations were so strict, Premier Harry Strom of Alberta said Thursday. Delegates to the recent premiers' conference in Winnipeg had expressed concern- that strict regulations would turn away industry. "The oil industry is one of our best industry resources, yet we have been strict with them," Mr. Strom told a news conference. "The experience of the last two or three weeks is an indication that we do not intend to tolerate undesirable operations." But he said there was a general understanding there is a need for uniform pollution-control regulation among the provinces. He said it need not necessarily require mo're federal regulations although the federal government should take a leadership role in discussions. The federal government should assist, but the provinces should make their own regulations in co-operation with one another unless they show they are unwilling to participate in pollution-control. Premier Strom also said he supports the idea proposed at the conference of a national water-bombing fleet that could assist in fighting forest fires. The premiers had expressed hope such a fleet could be considered a training operation for Canadian forces personnel. "They could do a practical job as well as getting training Police Killer SAN JOSE, Calif.

Mr. Strom also commented on the report of the commission investigating an Ombudsman's report on the Edmonton Real Estate Board Multiple Listing Bureau. He said the government had been concerned over charges the legislation was improper and thought an Investigation was necessary. He said the report by former Chief Justice C. C. McLaurin had shown the legislation and its pursuant regulations were in order. "We are not questioning the Ombudsman's right to do what he did." But when the matter concerns the validity of legislation, the Government must investigate further.
