Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta August 21, 1974 LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Dateline Alberta Draw system for hunters EDMONTON (CP) Alberta lands and forests announced Tuesday a special authorization will be required to hunt anterless elk during an open season in southern Alberta this fall. Hunters will also be required to register their kills. The season will extend from Nov. 19 through Nov. 30 in big game zones 9, 10, and 11, all south of the Bow River. Gordon Kerr, fish and wildlife division director, said that a draw system will be used to reduce the number of hunters and distribute them more evenly through the designated hunting areas. Each authorization will be for a specific wildlife management unit. Fish deaths natural CALGARY (CP) Natural causes have been cited by provincial biologists in the death of hundreds of whitefish in McGregor Lake Reservoir 80 miles southeast of Calgary. The fish were found floating belly-up on the banks of the lake about three weeks ago after an unusually hot speell during July. Perch and pike were not affected. "It would now appear to be a natural phenomenon as against anything said Gerry Thompson, a provincial fisheries biologist in Calgary. Energy centre planned CALGARY (CP) Plans for an energy research institute at the University of Calgary will be completed early next month, university president Dr. William Cochrane said Tuesday. Details of funding, administration and constitution of the institute have been largely worked out, he said, but a formal agreement will be signed in two or three weeks by provincial, federal, university and oil industry officials. The institute, proposed a year ago, will be developing an economic research ability in all phases of energy from petroleum, coal and hydro to nuclear power. Yancey the Great dies EDMONTON (CP) Funeral services will be held Thursday for George Victor Yancey, known to a generation of Edmonton football players and fans as Yancey the Great. He died Sunday at 79. He started playing football with Edmonton Eskimos in 1920 and gained recognition for his strength and speed on the left middle wing. He went with the Eskimos to their first Grey Cup game in 1921, a 23-0 loss to Toronto Argonauts. He retired from football the following year after tearing ligaments when his foot was trapped in a gopher hole on the football field. Mr. Yancey was also known in Edmonton for his boxing exploits and skills in throwing the shotput and the caber. Mr. Yancey worked as a switchman with the CNR at Edmonton at the time of his retirement in 1957. GENERAL FARM Presents The Weather SUNRISE THURSDAY SUNSET H L Pre.

(Times in Mountain Daylight Time.) Probe hears city hall names in diary EDMONTON (CP) A Fort McMurray, Alta., developer told a judicial inquiry Tuesday he didn't know why the names of Edmonton city hall officials appeared in his diary. Douglas Bodie told the inquiry into Edmonton city hall affairs that he was "surprised" when he reviewed his diary for Dec. 17, 1973, and discovered a notation reading: "Raphael, Mayor, Una Evans, George Hughes.'-' Raphael Ghermezian is an Edmonton developer with whom Mr. Bodie and two partners worked on a proposed Fort McMurray shopping centre. Mrs. Evans is an alderman and George Hughes is chief commissioner. Asked about the notation, Mr. Bodie said: "I can't make any special significance of it. I don't recall why I made it. Nothing followed from it." Mr. Bodie said Raphael and his brother, Eskanadar, occasionally mentioned that they were having problems with city officials over proposed developments and suggested that Mr. Bodie "see some of the aldermen" about the problems. But Mr. Bodie said he "never took it seriously and as evidence I never had meetings with anybody for them." He added he had not seen Edmonton mayor Ivor Dent or Aid. Evans for about five years, with the exception of ''a couple of social occasions." He had never met Mr. Hughes. "The Ghermezians were aware my family name was not unknown at city hall and I had had contact at various times with some aldermen and because of that, I was kidded quite often by the said Mr. Bodie, son of former alderman Les Bodie. Referring to testimony by the Ghermezians, commission counsel Greg Forsyth asked Mr. Bodie if he recalled saying he knew Aid. Alex Fallow and wo'uld get the alderman off the Ghermezians' back. Mr. Bodie said he did not recall saying it. CONTROVERSIAL MONEY The inquiry, in its 13th day, was called after Aid. Alex Fallow said he had been offered by the Ghermezians after he had voted favorably on a rezoning that permitted establishment of a shopping centre proposed by the brothers. Raphael Ghermezian has testified that Aid. Fallow asked for the During Mr. Bodie's evidence Tuesday, the name of Rhys Eyton, vice-president of Pacific Western Airlines, was mentioned. Mr. Bodie said he had seen Mr. Eyton in October, 1973, to discuss a "cattle venture" in connection with a public Library service urged EDMONTON (CP) A government operated library service to establish and en- force standards for library services has been recommended in a report commissioned by the provin- cial government. The report, by L. W. Downey Research Associates Ltd., also described the current library system as fragmented and suggested that the government increase its funding. Provincial financial support to libraries has not changed since 1966 and the available funds, "systematically eroded by inflation, are widely held to be inadequate for providing reasonable library service. The-report said that while urban libraries generally ranged from adequate to superior in services offered. 89 per cent of rural public libraries failed to meet a minimum standard. "Without the dedication and commitment of community volunteers, library trustees and the staff of the libraries division of the department of culture, youth and recreation, the situation in rural areas would be far worse." An Alberta Library and In- formation Network (ALINET) could be in- strumental in updating the library system, the report said. offering being made by a company with which Mr. Bodie was associated. Mr. Eyton was previously mentioned by Aid. Fallow, who owns a hotel in Yellowknife located on land leased from PWA. Aid. Fallow said he discussed the feasibility of a hotel in Fort McMurray with Mr. Eyton. Mr. Bodie was also asked how he reacted when Eskandar Ghermezian asked him how he would like Aid. Fallow for a partner. Mr. Bodie said he "placed no special importance" on the exchange where the question was made and thought no more of it.
