Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 20, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, August 20, 1970 PLUGS SPACE PROGRAM U. S. astron aut James A. Lovell tells an audience of 900 at an Empire Club meeting in Toronto that the U. S. plans to launch an "earth resources" satellite to study "dirty air and polluted waterways around the Lovell, comman- der of the near disastrous flight of Apollo 1 3, was in Toronto to plug man's benefits from space technology. Behavior Of Kennedy Aides Rapped By Mrs. Kopechne L L I- NEW YORK (AP) Mary Jo Kopecbne's and Mary mother says she Jo's father were "highly disturbed" by the be- havior of two Kennedy aides after the accident which took their daughter's life on Chappa- quiddick Island last summer. The aides, Joseph Gargan and Paul Markham, were among the guests at the party which ended with Mary Jo's death when Sen- ator Edward M. Kennedy's car plunged off a bridge. Kennedy, after trying to get Mary Jo's body out of the car, returned to the party and in- formed Gargan and Markham, and they returned with him to the bridge and made further fu- tile efforts to get the 20-year-old woman out of the car. Writing in the current issue of McCaH's magazine, Mrs. Joseph Widow Of Security Guard Loses Compensation Bid EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta Crimes Compensation Board Wednesday turned down an application from the widow of a security guard killed dur- ing the 1965 dynamiting of Uni- ted States aircraft in Edmon- ton. The board ruled that the retroactive provisions of the crimes compensation legisla- tion, which came into effect in HALE OPTICAL COMPANY LTD. Gary Marfift Dispensing Optician 307 6fh St. S. 327-7152 Octoher, 1969, did not extend to tlie case presented by Elizabeth Richardson. She is the widow of Threnton J. Richardson, a security guard at North West Industries Ltd. He was shot and killed on Jan. 28, 1965 at Edmonton Industrial Airport where four U.S. air force planes were found dyna- mited. The board authorized a payment for Mrs. Richardson's legal fees. The board's decision said that the act is not retroactive "in cases where the victim is Idlled nor does it authorize payment in respect o[ a loss suffered in consequence of the death of a victim." NOW OPEN SUNDAYS P.M. to MIDNIGHT Now under the new management of Bill Poon, Mid-Town Recreation Centre has been newly renovated. The lunch counter Kopechne said she and her hus- band felt that Kennedy's behav- ior was due to a concussion and a state of shock, adding: "If his judgment hadn't been impaired, we're certain that he would have tried to get immedi- ate help at one of the homes along the way." But, said Mrs. Kopechne, Gargan and Markham certainly were not in shock. "They were both cool-headed lawyers and Gargan was a Mend oE Mary Jo's. Yet for some unknown reason, they didn't take the final step: They didn't call for help." She added: "This is the big hurt, the nightmare we have to Eve with for the rest of our lives: that Mary Jo was left in the water for nine hours. She didn't belong there. "Gargan and Markham not only failed to get immediate help, but also let the senator swim back alone to report the accident from Edgartown. 'ihey didn't even call Edgartown to see if he had made it. They just returned to the cottage and went to sleep." Asked to comment on the arti- cle, Markham said in Boston: "I gave what I thought was all the facts I am aware of under oath at the inquest, which is now a matter o! public informa- tion. I don't want to comment further on it." Mrs. Kopechne also says in the article that her daughter was in love with, and planning to marry, a young foreign serv- ice officer at the time of the ac- cident. Mrs. Kopechna did not reveal his name. She said the parents decided to speak out about their daugh- ter's private life because of "a never-ending nightmare of rumor and speculation." 3 DAYS LEFT 50% OFF ALL STOCK GOOD SELECTION OF BACK TO SCHOOL SHOES CLOSING SAT., AUG. ?2nd GAYE SHOES Westminster Plaza 13th 5t. N. Czech Capital Is Edgy On Invasion Anniversary PRAGUE (Renters) Czech- oslovak Army Jeeps cruised through the cobbled streets of Prague today as the city steeled itself for the second anniversary of the 1908 Warsaw pact inva- sion. Armed police, to groups of two and three, patrolled nearly every street watching for signs of protest such as gathering crowds of young people who could ignite the powderkeg at- mosphere. Tlie police patrols were the of the world-famous Czechoslo- only visible sign of tension, al though arrests of liberals in re cent days have put the nerves of many intellecua'ls on edge Security police have arrestec Alois Polednak, former directoi Tax Reforms Approval Would Disappoint Strom MONTREAL (CP) Premier Harry Strom of Alberta said Wednesday he would be "one of the most disappointed men in Canada" if the federal white paper on tax reform wer'e im- plemented as it stands now.

"It looks much better in Longer Season In Alberta For tmters OTTAWA (CP) Daily bag and possession limits on ducks in Manitoba and Saskatchewan will be higher mis year but will remain mostly at 1369 levels elsewhere, the Canadian wildlife service said Wednesday in an- nouncing 1970 migratory bird regulations. The announcement said hunt- ers in Manitoba will be able to shoot eight ducks daily and pos- sess 10 during a longer season. In Saskatchewan the daily limit will be 10 and possession limit 20. Limits on geese, rails, coots and Wilson's snipe will be the same as last year but seasons will be longer because of in- creased numbers of these birds in western Canada, tie news release said. In Alberta, bag and posses- sion limits will be the same but the seasons will be longer. In British Columbia, the Yukon and Northwest Territories and Eastern Canada, 1970 regula- 92nd Annual CNE Fair Under Way TORONTO (CP) The Cana- dian National Exhibition, Toron- to's annual three-ring circus of competition commercialism and candy floss, opens today for its 92nd season. Organizers called today Kick- off Day at the Ex, expecting the Canadian Football League game scheduled as tonight's grand- stand show to give the 19-day fair a good start toward the three-million-plus attendance ex- pected by Labor Day. The weatherman predicted clouds for the 8 a.m. opening, with the possibility of showers or thundershowers and a high of about 80 degrees. Princess Margriet of The Netherlands will officially open the Ex Friday. The game between Toronto Argonauts and Edmonton Eski- mos was expected to highlight the first day's events, but the first of nightly rock concerts at the bandshell could woo away some young spectators. Theme of this year's exhibi- tion is Sights and Sounds of the Seventies, and each day has its own theme, such as Family Day, Youth in Canada Day, and Good Neighbor Day The CNE closes Labor Day, Sept. 7. Expo Attendance OSAKA (Reuters) Expo '70 welcomed its 50 millionth visitor Wednesday. Officials expect the total turnout when tlie exposi- tion closes after 183 days Sept. 13 to reach 60 million.

Mr. Strom said he also is con- cerned with what he called Ot- tawa's vague position on tax proposals. "Ottawa's delay in making positive statements about its own position on the white paper is having detrimental effects on Alberta's economy. "It's already hampering the inflow of money and, as a young province, we need a steady in- flow of risk capital." Mr. Str'om said some sources calculated the white paper has already caused a 50-per-cent re- duction in risk capital. Ills province had taken the strongest stand among prov- inces in opposing the proposed capital gains task. "Most other provinces have asked for a modification of the proposed capital gains he said, "but we're completely against it. We want no capita! gains tax at ali." Need More Study On Drug Abuse TORONTO (CP) Society must learn to live with the frus- tration of not having all the an- swers to the problem of drug abuse, a federal government of- ficial said Wednesday night. Dr. Alec Morrison, deputy- general of the federal govern- ment's food and drag directo- rate, told 450 delegates at a na- tional conference on drag abuse that little is known about the ways drugs influence human be- havior and much more study is needed. He told a windup banquet after the three-day symposium that the conference was impres- sive in some ways but at ttie same time fragmented and in- complete. 'Those who came to receive the golden answer to the drug problem went away unsatis- he said. "We must learn to live with the frustrations of not having all the answers." SIGN OF TURMOIL Dr. Morrison said abuse of drugs is a manisfetation of a so- ciety's turmoil and there is no simple solution. He said some presentations by researchers during the sympos- ium gave the impression that each was "the only viewpoint that has relevance." Thomas Wells, Ontario health minister, said that alienation, violence, change of moral stand- ards and breakdown of family units are some of the factors which lead to drug use. He said abuse of drugs is a symptom of alienation and the only way of attacking it is to learn about the problems which lead to it. Adults he said, must enter into a "meaningful dia- logue with young people." "Through i n d i v i d u a I anc group effort the vast ma- jority of our young people can be transformed from tlie present reactive attitude into creative activities and positive he said. The symposium was spon- sored by the Council on Drug Abuse, formed by businessmen and persons active in the Cana- dian pharmaceutical industry. Canadian Dollar Value Climbs TORONTO (CP) The Cana- dian dollar rose to a value of 98.4 cents U.S. in domestic trad- ing Wednesday and then weak- ened late in the day to close at 98.34. Monetary sources said the Bank of Canada was trading in the dollar to stabilize prices, which were hitting record levels since the dollar was allowed to float June 1. In New York, the Canadian dollar closed at 98.375 cents U.S. CALLING ALL KIDDIES SPECIAL SATURDAY MORNING MATINEES PARAMOUNT THEATRE 2 Shows and a.m. Admission: 6 Coca-Cola Bottle Caps or lOc Admission: a.m. 6 Bottle Caps From any of the following SPRITE, FRESCA, TAB, JAMAICA GINGER ALE, TOM COLLINS, FANTA ORANGE, FANTA ROOT BEER, FANTA GRAPE, FANTA GRAPEFRUIT, FANTA LEMON IIME, FANTA CREAM SODA or lOc It's The Real Thing: COKE These Special Matinees Courtesy of PURITY BOTTLING (1967) LTD.

LEAVE FOR MOSCOW One sure sign of official confi- dence that peace will reign was the departure of Communist party chief Gustav Husak and Prime Minister Lubomir Strougla for Moscow to attend a summit conference of East Eu- ropean party leaders and heads of government. The meeting was expected to last two daj'S, which would mean that Husak will be absent on the anniversary. Observers doubted that he would have left if a major upheaval was ex- pected. Ombudsman Is Assured Of Hearing CALGARY (CP) Art Dix- pn, Speaker of the Alberta Leg- islature, says there will he "no problem" in providing provin- cial Ombudsman George Me- Clellan with an opportunity to appear before the house. "He will certainly be heard by the legislature." Mr. Dixon told a service club here that the ombudsman has not yet made a specific request to address the legislature, but any such request will be pre- sented to the MLAs. Mr. McCIellan has indicated he would like to appear before the legislature to discuss opera- tion of his office and justify his actions in some investiga- tions. Red Bloc Leaders Huddle MOSCOW (Reuters) Soviet and East European leaders opened talks here today ex- pected to centre on questions of European security and co-oper- ation, Communist sources said. The Communist party leaders, premiers and foreign ministers of East Germany, Czechoslova- kia, Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania arrived Wednes- day for the Warsaw pact sum- mit. There was no official an- nouncement of the opening, but on previous occasions no details have been released until the publication of a communique after the top-level delegations have left for home. The summit, which comes lit- tle more than a week after Rus- sia and West Germany signed their non-aggression treaty, probably will last one day, the sources said. It also will provide the oppor- tunity for a new policy state- ment from the Eastern bloc on a European security conference, proposed by the Warsaw pact last year. Pact foreign ministers meet- ing in Budapest in June called for multilateral consultations to prepare such a conference. In a memorandum they also sug- gested a European security body could discuss the reduction of armed forces based on for- eign soil in Europe. Seek Albertan lu Jail Break MCNEIL ISLAND, Wash.
