Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE August News In brief Milk extension offered OTTAWA (CP) Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan has offered the provinces a four-month extension of the federal government's consumer fluid milk subsidy Mr. Whelan said in a state- ment Friday that the extended subsidy, running from the anniversary date of the subsidy program in each province, will be reduced at the rate of one per cent a month. Under the pro- gram. launched last September, the government pays milk marketing boards a five-cent-a-quart subsidy on fluid milk if the sellers agree to hold the line or lower prices. The program was introduced to ease the upward pressure on milk prices. Mr. Whelan said the extension offer carries the same condition imposed in the original price increases must be justified on the basis of actual production and processing cost increases. Mr. Whelan said the subsidy on skim milk powder sold in consumer packs will be continued and increased to 24 from 20 cents per pound. He said the four-cent increase will offset the recent four- cent-per-pound increase in the Canadian Dairy Commission's support price for skim milk powder Auto rollback forecast DETROIT (APi Some United States auto industry observers are betting there will be a rollback in the record price increases planned for 1975 models as criticism of the industry's fall prices mounts Several analysts for some of the biggest U.S. banks and in- vestment houses say they ex- pect General be- fore the new models go on sale in late September announce a modest trimming of its previously announced increase The increase disclosed earlier this month averaged or about 10 per cent.

The shifts, which sometimes take drivers 13 hours to complete, is listed by representatives of Division 113, Amalgamated Transit Union, as a prime bargaining issue as is union demand for a 40-per-cent wage hike.

Story page 1. SUNAMGANJ, Bangladesh (AP) Two months of floods have demolished most of the summer rice harvest in Bangladesh, already critically short of food. The farmers of this township, about 160 miles northeast of Dacca, saw their summer crop destroyed and their winter seedlings ruined by floodwaters twice as the water came, receded and returned. Saiful Islam, the 29-year-old subdivision officer for Sunam- ganj, said his people are wait- ing for the water to recede again to plant their seedlings a third time. Charles gets new orders LONDON (AP) Prince Charles completed 18 months of sea duty today and has received orders to begin a helicopter course, Buckingham Palace an- nounced. "We still hope to get the winter crop, but if there is more flooding you can write off the whole he said. Behind him, workers un- loaded loaves of bread, en- riched with extra sugar and salt, flown in from Dacca to feed the 1.2 million inhabitants of Sunamganj subdivision. One peasant among the sev- eral hundred who came to watch the relief helicopter land said he was left dependent on government food shipments because his one-acre rice paddy was under deep water "Not a single grain of wheat in the he said. "I don't have a thing of my own." The 71 million inhabitants of Bangladesh have always faced floods at monsoon time, when waters from the Indian high- lands drop through the Bengali Delta into the Bay of Bengal. But this year the floods sur- passed their usual fury, cov- ering uncounted acres of rice paddies. Ford dinner lot of fun9 "A boneware workshop unearthed outside the city walls revealed many arrowheads, hairpins, awls, spoons and other objects fashioned from the limb bones and ribs of slaves."

WASHINGTON (AP) President Ford arrived at the White House a half hour later than usual today after giving his first state dinner, a dancing party that lasted until midnight. He said the White House is in for more such social events. "We'll do it more the president told reporters at a.m. EDT as he went into the Oval Office after the 15- minute trip from his suburban home. "It was a lot of fun." He looked a little sleepy- eyed but when asked if he was wide awake, the president said: "So far. I feel very good." The state dinner was for King Hussein and Queen Alia of Jordan. The president had a morning full of appointments, starting with the White House chief of staff Alexander Haig Wreckage sighted BOSTON BAR, B.C. (CP) The wreckage of a Conair Aviation waterbomber that disappeared almost a week ago on a flight from Abbostsford to Williams Lake was spotted Friday on the side of Mount Stoyoma, 15 miles east of here. The body of pilot Eric Yuill, 50, of Summerside, P.E.I., was found in the twisted cockpit of the converted Second World War bomber. He was killed when the aircraft slammed into the heavily-forested mountain at the foot level. and transition chief Donald Rumsfeld, State Secretary Henry Kissinger also was on the schedule, along with economic adviser Kenneth Rush. Ford seemed to be slowing his pace a little after his first week in office. Aides said he planned to play golf Sunday after church. He undoubtedly also will give some thought during the weekend to his choice for vice- president. His timetable for picking a vice-presidential nominee slipped in the crush of business and a choice now is not expected to be announced until Tuesday or Wednesday. DECOY WINS TEST DALLAS, Tex. (AP) She said he brought up money and sex. He said she gave him the idea He was found guilty in the first case testing the city's use of a policewoman as a fake prostitute. Municipal Judge William Bennison found Paul Rios. 21, guilty Friday under a new state law which makes it illegal for either party to solicit for prostitution Rios was fined Rios's lawyer, Ron Merrill, said he will appeal, but Dallas's controversial prostitute decoy seemed to have cleared her first hurdle. Deborah Ann Gardmeer, 26, who has had the job since June 1, has been responsible so far for the arrest of 73 men, including 14 the night of June 27 when Rios encountered her in East Dallas about a.m He says she was in the middle of the street and motioned for him to come over. "My buddy grabbed for her. She said, 'Don't touch me for nothing.' What does that mean to She said she was standing in a parking lot when Rios and his friend, Moreno Gonzalez, drove in. She said Rios got out, ap- proached her as she stood absolutely still and "asked rne how much I charged." MONTREAL (CP) The city will be without bus and subway service at least for the weekend following a Montreal Urban Community Transit Commission (MUCTC) decision Friday to withdraw all buses for safety checks and repairs as MUCTC garage and maintenance workers continue their 12-day walk- out. The workers, members of the Montreal Transport Union, walked off the job Aug. 7 to back demands for cost-of-living wage increases. Supervisory personnel have been maintain- ing bus service in their ab- sence. MUCTC chairman Lawrence Hanigan said bus service will be restored early Monday, and should be maintained throughout next week. "And besides, our supervisory people need a rest because they have been working more than 15 hours a day since the strike Mr. Hanigan said. The MUCTC has more than buses and uses about during rush hours. More than one million com- muters use the transit system daily, including about subway users. The workers, whose contract expires in July, 1975, want the wage increases added to their current contract. Mr. Hanigan said the commission will "study the request." The workers are also striking to protest the suspension of 73 colleagues who refused to work on two statutory holidays. The Montreal Labor Council said in a statement Friday that responsibility for the strike lies with the MUCTC. Spaceship orbit moves MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet Union has changed the position in orbit of its Salyut 3 spacelaboratory, which has circled the Earth unmanned since two cosmonauts completed a 14-day mission last month, Tass reported Friday. The new orbit put the 25-ton craft into a position almost indentical to that used when the cosmonauts docked their Soyuz 14 transport ship on July 5. has said that split shifts cannot be avoided. Robert Hainault, a commis- sioner with Montreal's transit authority says public- transport cannot be run economically without the split shift system because of the need to heavily staff the two rush-hour periods. TTC Chairman Karl Mallette agrees. In an interview Friday, he said that to eliminate the system for TTC drivers would be too expensive and would create dissatisfaction among other commission employees, such as maintenance men and supervisory personnel. Mr. Mallette said the only solution would be to hire two sets of assigned to work one of the two 3'2- hour rush periods. "We couldn't do that very well. Besides the enormous cost, how could we pay some- one for 7J'z hours work, as the union wants, and only work them for 3Vz hours. The other (non-driver) workers would say 'We won't work more than 3V2 hours either. Why should As Metro commuters battled their way home by bikes, foot, roller skates, and car pools for the fifth strikebound rush hour Friday, negotiators were expected to continue talks during the weekend. Metro Chairman Paul God- frey announced that 50 school buses, chauffeured by drivers not affiliated with the striking transit union, will be available Monday to transport the elderly and handicapped on necessary medical and shopping trips. The 96th annual Canadian National Exhibition is attracting crowds only slightly smaller than last year's, with the help of extra trains laid on by the provmcially-operated GO transit service. The first known fatality re- lated to the strike occurred Thursday when a 21-year-old Toronto woman on a borrowed bicycle was struck and killed by a truck Friends said she was afraid to hitch-hike and had decided to go to the CNE bv bicvcle Kenora Indians await visitor KENORA. Ont. (CP) American Indian Movement co-chairman Dennis Banks was scheduled to enter Indian- held Anicinabe Park at noon today. Banks, who arrived here late Friday night amid strict secrecy, slept at the nearby Rat Portage Reserve. Before entering the reserve at about 4 a.m. Banks had a long session of talks with Ontario deputy attorney- general Frank Callahan and other officials. The AIM leader was transported by helicopter from International Falls. Minn, and is here at the request of both the Ojibway Warriors Society and the provincial government. In the park this morning, preparations were underway to greet Banks, who is highly respected militants here. Mr. Banks' visit to this northwestern Ontario community will meet one of the conditions for a peaceful end to the 25-day armed occupation of the park. Meanwhile, sit-ins at offices ol the federal department of Indian affairs in Winnipeg and Regina in support of the Kenora militants ended Friday with no apparent effects. Ethiopian militia curbs Selassie power ADDIS ABABA (AP) The Ethiopian armed forces further reduced the power of Emperor Haile Selassie Friday by abolishing three institutions closely associated with the 82-year-old monarch. Tanks rumbled through the streets of this capital city and half-a-dozen supersonic F-5 jet aircraft screamed overhead in what appeared to be a show of strength by the armed forces, which have gradually been taking control of the country by slowly but systematically reducing Selassie's powers. Today's announcement, broadcast over Radio Ethiopia, said the Crown Council, the Emperor's Military Advisory Council and the Imperial Appelate Court were abolished because they were expensive and provided no useful services. In another development, all 23 members of the lower house of parliament from the northern province of Eritrea submitted their resignations Friday in protest against "indifference by successive governments in Addis Ababa to the plight of their fellow Ethiopians in Eritrea." They cited administrative and judicial neglect, drought and famine in parts of the province. Eritrea also is the home of a strong separatist movement, the Eritrean Liberation Front. The 250-member house per- suaded the Eritrean legislators to reconsider their resignations next week when the house will take up the Eritrean problem, informed sources said Giant U.K. travel firm collapses LONDON (CP) An angry crowd whose planned vacations were shattered with the collapse of the fiant Court Line travel organization stormed the company's subsidiary London headquarters Friday amid a country-wide outburst of fury. A cordon of police swept in to block the crowd from the boardroom where Court Line directors held an emergency meeting to find ways of salvaging the company which controlled onethird of Britain's foreign package tour business. The crowd besieged the office and demanded their money back in a barrage of abuse and catcalls. More than Britons face losing their money and their summer vacations after Court Line announced its liquidation late Thursday. Meanwhile, tour operators and airline chiefs planned a big rescue airlift to bring home up to holidaymakers stranded abroad by the crash. The operation, worked out in an all-night session by tour operators, will cost an estimated million taken from an emergency bond fund set up some time ago by the As- sociation of British Travel Agents. At airports around the coun- try, thousands of holidaymakers who turned up expecting to fly to Europe's playgrounds found their bookings cancelled. Some had paid for their holidays late Thursday, only hours before the company announced its collapse. Alan Thompson and his fam- ily, who paid out pounds for a 10-day holiday on the Spanish island of Majorca, epitomized the tale of misery. "Last night we went to bed really happy that we were go- ing Thompson said. "Now we're unpacking our holiday clothes. We can't afford to go anywhere now, not even down to the beach for the day. The kids are in tears.'' Tour operators held urgent talks with the trade department Friday to persuade the government to help pay back at least some of the vacation money but a government spokesman said later such payment is unlikely. The Court Line is a shipping and aviation conglomerate with a half-dozen major package tour subsidiaries. In financial difficulties for several months, it received million) in government aid in June, in a bid to save its lucrative travel business. Rumors abound in the City about more collapses to come, even among large, long-estab- lished institutions. Most ex- perts, however, believe these fears are overstretched. Court Line first ran into difficulty early this year because of the huge rise in fuel costs caused by the Arab oil embargo and subsequent price jumps.
