Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 11, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THE tETHBRIDGE HERAID Tuesday, II, 1970 NDP Survive Snap Vote On Auto Insurance Bill WINNIPEG (CP) A snap vote today pushed the Manitoba government dangerously close to its first setback on its auto insurance legislation. A Conservative party request for a recorded vote during clause-by-clause study of Bill 5 bill designed to set up a Crown corporation to adminis ter compulsory car caught (he government short handed in the legislature. The minority NDP govern Lots Of Drinking On Captured Ship SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) The former executive officer of the Pueblo says that although U.S. Navy regulations prohibit drinking and gambling on board ships, there "was plenty o both" on the intelligence vesse captured by North Korea i 1965. Explosives that could hav sunk the ship before it was car tured were left behind in Japa: because there was more interes in partying than in getting then on Edward R. Murpl" said here. For the same reason, a chem ical that could have been to destroy metal container crammed with intelligence data was not brought on the ship, he said in an interview. Former marine Sgt. Robert J Chicca, also a former Puebl crew member and now r. stu dent at the University of Call fornia at San Diego, agreed in part with Murphy's charges. "But the drinking was durini off duty hours and did not affec the performance of the said Chicca, a Korean language specialist on the ship. He saic Picket Lines Cut Grass Seed Sales WINNIPEG (CP) George H. Sellers, president of Fed- eral Grain Ltd., said Monday that picket lines by farmer- members of the National Fanners Union, preventing de- liveries of fescue grass seec has cost some sales and may permanently affect markets. "Sales have been lost now and markets may be perma- nently affected by foreign buy- ers and users converting to other kinds of grasses in their operations." Mr. Sellers said in a state- ment that most growers have newly-harvested seed of the creeping red fescue variety which they would like to con- vert into cash but are prevent- by picket lines from enter- log receiving stations and seed plant grounds with their prod- uct. The NFU is picketing receiv- ing points in northern Alberta demanding 27 c e n t s a pound for the product. Current price is- 15 cents, and it has ranged to highs of 51 and lows of about six cents a pound. "No one denies the right of growers to withhold their own product from the market Mr. Sellers said, "But the situation is preventing many growers from marketing their grass crops at a time when the product should be moving into world trade chan- nels." Family Of 7 Wiped Out In Crash CRAIK, Sask. (CP) A fam- ily of seven from Assiniboia, Sask., was wiped out Sunday night in a two-vehicle crash on Highway 11. One of the ve- hicles was from Billings, Mont. Police Monday identified the dead as Lucien Gaulhier, 33, his wife Lareine, 28, and their five children Dianne, 10, Mi- chael, 0, Angela, 7, Dennis, 5, and Collin, 4. Driver of the other vehicle, a %-ton truck, Andrea Idene Van Dyke, 46, o! Billings, was reported in serious condition in a Saskatoon hospital. Ho was alone in the vehicle. Police said the Van Dyke truck was travelling north on the Regina Saskatoon high- way; the Gauthicr car in the other direction. Craik is 70 miles north ol Regina. EXTRA WEAR FOR EVERV PAIR MIKE 317.7th STREET SOUTH several of the 82 crew members played "penny ante" and other games while on duty. Their comments followed televised inter view recentl; during which Murphy saic drinking and gambling on the Pueblo was not brought out dur- ing last year's investigation ol the incident "because it was nol part of the inquiry." "The board was only inter- ested in the circumstances sur- rounding the seizure of the Pueblo on that he said. "There was no drinking on the day the ship was captured." Find Body Of Yoimg Hitchhiker HUDSON'S HOPE, B.C. (CP- A hitchhiking trip to west- ern Canada ended in death for Micheline Pare, 18, of Lasalle, Que., whose badly-decomposed body has been identified in this community 150 miles north of Prince George. Tire body, also apparently disturbed by animals was found Saturday by two families on a berry-picking trip and an RCMP officer said Monday the girl's death is regarded as a homicide. Sgt. W. J. Stanton said tests were being conducted to de- termine the exact cause of death, but "extensive injuries" to the girl's head indicated she could have been murdered. Ombudsman Requests Hearing CALGARY (CP) -Provin- cial ombudsman George Mc- Clellan will probably be allow- ed to make an appearance be- fore the next sitting of the Al- >erta 1 e g i s 1 a tare, Attorney- General Edgar Gerhart said lore. The ombudsman has request- ed the appearance to explain lis refusal to testify all a pub- ic inquiry into one of his in- vestigations. The inquiry, head- ed by C. C. McLaurin, former :hief justice of the Alberta Su- ireme Court, rejected the om- judsman's findings. Mr. McClellan indicated he vould also like to discuss the ;eneral legislation under which IB operates and may suggest ianges. The attorney genefal said 10 changes were contemplated but "there is probably some merit for c h a n g e in sugges- tions coming from the ombuds- man or the government or the ipposition." ment needs Its entire caucu plus a little help from the tw independents to survive an vote in the committee stage o the bill. The government benches wer depleted today following Mon day's midnight sitting and divi sion bells sumoning members t vote were kept ringing for al most 10 minutes. As members scurried in froir other parts of the building, the government caucus was stil missing one member. When the vote was taken, however, Don aid Malinowski (NDP-Poin Douglas) and Liberal Leonard Barkman (La Verendrye) wen absent. WIN BY ONE VOTE The government survived the vote 26 to 27 with two hidepend ent members voting with the government. For Independent Gordon Beard (Churchill) and Libera Democrat Larry Desjardins (St Boniface) it was the fourtl straight time that the two have voted with the NDP and saved portions of the government leg- islation. The vote was a straight vote on a section of the bill with no amendments, and the Conserva- tive party apparently jus wished to register formal oppo- sition. Another section of the bill was withdrawn when Liberal Gi Molgat objected and said tha "too many jobs are going to government members." The section in question would have allowed an MLA to be member of the planned publii insurance corporation and to ac- cept expense money and remu- neration. EXPLAINS WITHDRAWAL In withdrawing the section, Premier Ed Schreyer said it was not central to the bill's con- tent but was merely an attempt the government to make the legislation more flexible. In the continuing debate, the legislature is facing numerous jrocedural wrangles over amendments and types of amendments that can be al- .owed. A procedural vote, which came this morning when com- mittee chairman Russell Doern was challenged, was upheld by government members 28 to 261 Mr. Doern had ruled that a Con- servative amendment was simi- lar in content to previous amendments' and could not be allowed under house rules. Throughout debate Monday, :he minority NDP government rang on to support from the two ndependents and kept the auto nsurance bill intact against a series ol opposition challenges. VOTE WITH NDP Mr. Desjardins and Mr. Beard voted with the govern- ment on three occasions to give he Schreyer administration a .3-to-27 edge over the combined apposition. Their first two votes enabled he government to defeat Lib- ral and Conservative amend- ments that would have forced he proposed compulsory, basic, tate-run plan to compete with jrivate industry. The third was on an opposl- ion attempt to remove a defini- ion section from the bill, which, government spokesmen said, ivould not have altered the leg- slation to any extent. Mr. Desjardins (St. Boniface) nd Mr. Beard (Churchill) told he legislature they are not sat- sfied with the bill as it stands ut want to keep it alive in opes it will be changed. They also said a provincial cneral virtual cer- ainty if the bill is either needed nor wanted at bis time. SHOCKED DRIVER Giuseppe Durigon of Vancouver drops to his knees with shock and buries his face in his hands after a car he was driving struck Mrs. Hiroko Nishl as she escorted her two children across the street. Mrs. Nishi, also of Vancouver, is in fair condition in hospital. The children escaped injury. The accident occurred in East- end Vancouver. Report Urges Development Of National Land-Use Policy WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- dent Nixon today sent Congress a report on the state of the envi- ronment urging the develop- ment of a national land-use pol- icy. The report, prepared by the Council of Environmental Qual- ity, may well be a preview of lings to come, although too ate for legislative action this federal en- year. It recommends couragement of planned and controlled land development, protecting areas of scenic and recreational value. Economic incentives emerge throughout the wide-ranging re port as one of the major tools to be used by the federal govern- ment in attacking environmen- tal problems. The costs of cleaning up envi- ronmental pollution, it empha- sizes, must be allocate: throughout society in the prices charged for products and serv- ices. The report warns that man's activities are already altering the world's climate in ways thai could bring on a catastrophe. So little is known about this, however, that the council was undecided whether it might Priceless Treasures Found In Two Ancient Cities PALERMO (AP) The Si- cilian Superintendency for An- tiquities says two ancient cit- ies that sank following an earthquake years ago have been found off Sicily with presumably "priceless treasures" preserved under sea mud.

Masocco said the divers re- ported they had seen a toot stretch of walls with arches on the site of Iccara. In Rome, the Superinten- dency for Antiquities of Etru- ria said an areheological cam- paign had discovered a Greek temple among the ruins of the Etruscan city of Gravisca, on the Tyrrenian north of Rome. The superintendency said it was the first time a Greek building was found on Etrus- can soil. It said digging un- covered hundreds of lamps and many pots manufactured by Greek craftsmen. emerge as a man-made ice ag the opposite melting of ths polar ice cap and flooding of large lan areas. The council also offered som new proposals, giving spec! attention to the problems c land use. It said the federal govern ment should: home mortgage and ir terest subsidy programs "to e courage the proper siting an environmental compatibility" new residential subdivisions. acquisition small parks and natural area near cities. "areas of specia ecological significance." The report said "national wi derness areas should be desij nated as quickly as possib: even if substantial temp: rary reassignment of personni is required." Nixon told Congress. "Todaj we are coming to realize tha land is finite, while our pop- ulation is growing, Societ as a whole has a legitimate in terest in proper land use." On water pollution, the repor says federal programs shoult encourage development of re gional water treatment system and the imposition of use charges. It also states: "Man may b changing his weather. And if h is, (he day may come when h will either freeze by his own hand or drown it depend on jus'j what he is doing to the atmosphere. He does not know for sura." American Women Celebrate Big Equal Rights Victory By ASSOCIATED PRESS American women today cele- brated what some of them see as their greatest achievemen since they were given the vote in 1920. The House of Representatives approved an amendment to the U.S. constitution Monday stipu- lating that "equality of rights under law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.n Around the same time, Mayor John Lindsay of New York signed a bill barring discrimina- tion against women in the city's public places. As a result, women were able to drink in one New York bar for the first time in 174 years Monday night. But drinking was about all they could do. The manager ol the bar, McSorley's, a men-only refuge since it opened in 1796, insisted be would not build a la- dies' room or even put a lock on the men's lavatory. In New York harbor, leaders of a band of militant feminists occupied the world famous Statue of Liberty Monday "to draw attention to the irony of a female symbolizing liberty when no woman in America is free." They say they will stay put until the equal-rights amend- ment passes all its congres- ional stages. They could have a long wait. Although majority support in the Senate is assured, a vote is not expected until after Labor Day weekend next month. After that, the amendment rill have to be approved by :hree-quarters of the 50 i process that could take months, maybe years. FOR DAILY INSPIRATION Dial-A-Thought Report Indicates Wheat Exports Up WINNIPEG (CP) The board of groin commissioners said Monday a preliminary re- view of the crop year ended July 31 indicates wheat exports of 317.7 million bushels, up from the previous year but below the 10-year average. Tlw figures do not include ex- ports of wheat flour, which have been running around bushels for the last two years. In the previous crop year, wheat exports in grain form were .'B0.5 million bushels. Tire 10-year average, which included the bg export boom years of the mid-1960s, is 369.2 million.

Red China Ship Greeted On Arrival VANCOUVER (CP) More than 500 Vancouver residents, many of them waving copies of the Thoughts of Chairman Mao, greeted (he first mainland China ship to visit Canada when it docked here' Monday. The 500-f Dot, freighter Dong Feng was open to the public following a three- hour clearance through Cana- dian customs, immigration and health authorities. Most of those welcoming her were Chinese- Canadian. 'We will be about one week said the ship's captain. 'We will be loading wheat and nickel for Shanghai." The captain was obviously pleased with his noisy reception and ordered bottles of orange soft drinks distributed to all in the welcoming party. A customs officer specializing in checking ships in Vancouver harbor said the Dong B'eng re- ceived the largest welcome he's ever seen. Drums and cymbafe filled the sir while children from the Chinese youth association danced and sang. The 63-man crew lined the decks before anyone was al- lowed on board and they joined in the songs and chants. Among the other principal grains and oilseeds flax and rapeseed also had substantial increases. Flax clearances totalled 18.6 millions bushels compared to 13.4 in 1968-09 and rapeseed to- talled 22.2 million, up from 14.2 million. OATS UP Oat exports were up slightly to 4.8 million bushels from 2.3 million while rye sales wero down to 3.8 million from 4.2 mil- lion. Farmers delivered 625.7 mil- lion bushels of grain and oil- seeds to elevators, an increase of some 34 million bushels from the previous year. A comparison of this year's individual grain totals, with the previous 10-year average in brackets, indicates the following distribution: Wheat 386.3 million bushels (478.1 oats 19.4 million (43.7 barley 162.4 mil- lion (86.9 rye 7.6 mil- lion (7.7 flaxseed 21.8 million (16.0 and rape- seed 28.2 million (12.2 The visible stocks of 437.2 mil- lion bushels of wheat as of July 31, represents a decrease of approximately 40 million bushels from the final 1969 total. Commercial holdings of 16.7 million bushels of oats and 3.3 million bushels of rapeseed rep- resented reductions also. Stocks of 73.9 million bushels of barley, 5.7 million of rye and 5.2 million of flaxseed were sub- stantially greater than the final 1969 figure.
