Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, August LETHBRIOGE HERALD-3 Dateline Alberta million flood bill EDMONTON (CP) Spr- ing floods this year are costing the provincial govern- ment more than million in damage payments, Dr. Hugh Homer, deputy premier and minister responsible for the Alberta Disaster Services Agency, announced today. A special warrant for million was approved by the cabinet Tuesday. The balance was previously included in the agency's disaster contingency fund. Agricultural claims total more than million. Damages to roads and bridges are estimated at million and the emergency operating costs of municipalities and provincial government departments will run at approximately each. Compensation payments to individual claimants other than farmers are estimated at Accident injuries fatal EDMONTON (CP) Vi- nent Lipinski, 53, of Wainwright, died here in hospital of injuries suffered Aug. 17 when the car he was travelling in overturned near Provost, 165 miles southeast of Edmonton. Feed grain plan sought RED DEER (CP) The chairman of the Alberta Grains Commission, John Channon, says a meeting with officials of Canada's grain trade in Winnipeg earlier this week regarding feed grain supplies for Alberta feeders was constructive. However, he said in an interview Wednesday, he may have to meet with Otto Lang, minister responsible for the wheat board, and Eugene Whelan, federal agriculture minister, to establish some method of guaranteeing feed grain supplies for Alberta livestock feeders. Mr. Channon said the federal grains policy guarantees feed grain supplies for Eastern Canada and British Columbia but there is no guarantee of feed grain supplies for Alberta. Deterrence considered EDMONTON (CP) A 22- year-old man never before in trouble with the law was sentenced yesterday to four years in penitentiary for the armed robbery of a grocery store. Defence lawyer P. B. Gunn recommended leniency after his client, Fisel Asiff, pleaded guilty. He said Asiff came from a respectable family and had worked fairly steadily since leaving school at Grade 10. However, Provincial Judge Dean Saks said he must con- sider deterrance of others. The court was told Asiff pointed a rifle at two employees of a grocery store. He had been drinking since 3 p.m. before the robbery and aad considered committing the crime as a joke.

EDMONTON (CP) Bill Broad, president of the Civil Service Association of Alber- ta, Wednesday accused the government of failing to ade- quately consult its employees in decisions affecting them. Mr. Broad cited the es- tablishment of a behavior health service for government employees with problems such as alcoholism, drug ad- diction and nervous con- ditions. "It concerns employees, but we, as the employees' representatives have not been consulted on the he said. Sudden death COCHRANE, Alta. (CP) RCMP are investigating the sudden death of a four-month- old baby, Daniel Jonathon Clark, at his home. Coroner L. A. McKercher has ordered an autopsy. Mr. Broad said he under- stood the service would re- quire the employee to waive his right to complain about the result of treatment the government orders him to take. "No private employer would dare do this. The government treats its employees like slaves to say the least." The union president also at- tacked the government for ap- pointing only one guard to serve on a committee looking into conditions at the Calgary Jail. "Jail guards are responsible for running the jail and yet only one is appointed." The other members of the committee are three prisoners, the warden and a psychologist. "We can not see that the guards will be properly represented by only one per- son."

Aid. Ed Leger gave evidence before the inquiry adjourned until today when lawyers Howard Irving and Marguerite Trussler were to take the stand along with Aid. Leger. Aid. Leger was only able to begin his testimony on where he first met Eskandar and Raphael Ghermezian, the two developers accused of offering Aid. Alex Fallow after he voted in favor of a rezoning the Ghermezians wanted for a shopping centre. The two brothers have testified it was Aid. Fallow who asked for favors after the vote, not they that offered them. Earlier Wednesday a former secretary of the Ghermezians, Margaret Patrick, contradicted testimony given by her former employers and said the Travel drops between U.S. and Canada OTTAWA (CP) Travel between Canada and the United States declined in June compared with June 1973, preliminary figures released by Statistics Canada indicated Wednesday. "In June 4.1 million U.S. travellers entered Canada, 5.3 per cent fewer than last the report said. Cana- dian travellers returning from visits to the U.S. increased four per cent to 2.9 million. Travel between Canada and other countries increased with foreign visits to Canada up by 12.6 per cent to and Ca- nadians re-entering up two- tenths of one per cent to Ghermezian office had an ap- pointment book which she was told to use to keep track of meetings. Mrs. Patrick said sometimes she was given complete information to enter into the book and other times just times and places. She said she did not know what became of the book after she left her job in April. She testified that Aid. Fallow never came to the Ghermezians' office nor was she asked to contact him by phone but that a caller iden- tifying himself only as "Alex" called occasionally. Aid. Leger said he first met the Ghermezians in early 1973, when they approached him about a shopping centre proposal in Dickinsfield, near the Northgate Shopping Centre. He said the Ghermezians came to his home and discuss- ed the project. During the spring of 1973, the alderman and his wife received a dinner invitation to the Ghermezian home. Aid. Leger said at the conclusion of the dinner, neither he nor his wife was offered a gift. "I kind of felt left Aid. Leger said, referring to Eskanadar Ghermezian's earlier testimony that almost all guests to his home were offered some sort of Persian souvenir.
