Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, August UETHBRIDGE Cottontail madam solicits voters LIDA JUNCTION, Nev. (AP) The woman rang the doorbell but didn't step inside. "I just stopped by to shake your hand and let you know we're on your she said. "You have my The woman paused, "-and you have my husband's." Beverly Harrell thanked her. She'll need every vote. She might not be the only shady politics. But she's honest about it. Beverly Harrell is a madam. She runs a bordello. And she says so. F'ive-foot, blue-eyed Bever- ly is a candidate for the Nevada Assembly. Some peo- ple hereabouts think she might win. Her chances? fair, allows Bill Bagdad, Esmeralda County probation officer, who stops in now and then at the Santa Fe Saloon in Goldfield for a beer. The Santa Fe is one of the better listening posts in these acres of sagebrush, mountains, old mines and ranches. "She's a serious can- vouches Jim Grogan, proprietor. Grogan's eyes twinkle. "The nice thing about Beverly is that I don't think she would steal much." Prostitution is legal here. Nevada leaves outlawing it up to each of its 17 counties and only two have. Titian-haired Beverly Harrell came to Lida Junc- tion, a fork in the road, seven years ago. It was in the mid- dle of the Ralston Desert. Las Vegas was 2Vz hours south; Goldfield a quarter of an hour north, and Lida, a town con- sisting mostly of a million- acre cattle ranch, 20 minutes west. At the junction were a two-mile airstrip, a clump of wind-bent trees and dozens of rabbits. Beverly is a Jewish girl from Brooklyn, daughter of an Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: 1 might be mistaken, but I can't recall your advising anyone whose health has been endangered by an incompetent or careless physician to report the matter to the county or state medical society. 1 refer specifically to the BINGO Mon., Aug. 26 Jackpot in 53 Nos.

The "distinguished kidney specialist" vvith whom you consulted said the drug that expanded the bladder, if taken by a child with a disease of the urinary tract, could develop a serious kidney problem. Everyone makes mistakes, including doctors. If a doctor docs something that is injur- ious to a patient's health, he should be reported and you should have suggested it. My husband bet me that you would NOT print this letter for fear of alienating your doctor friends. Who wins9 New Yorker In Michigan Dear N. Y.: You do. I have repeatedly advised patients who have complaints against physicians to contact their county medical societies. In fact, just a few weeks ago I gave the following counsel, verbatime: "Incompetent doctors reflect poorly on the entire profession. The good physicians want to get rid of them. Report the case to the county medical society." Ladies' Auxiliary to F.O.E. CORN ROAST Tuesday, August 27 atKATHYLUDWIG 1131-23 St. N. upper middle class family. She was edu- cated at a private school and at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. She became a dancer, singer, played Broadway, off Broadway, in musical com- edies and road companies. And she went to Hollywood to become a star. "I ran across a lot of she says. They all noticed Beverly had another talent. "They all said I had managerial qualities." So she started a system of call girls. But life got complicated. "Nip and tuck with the gen- darmes, you know." So in 1967 she opened the Cottontail Ranch at Lida Junction and called it "the friendliest place in Nevada." Of the 25 or 30 bordellos in Nevada, she likes to think the Cottontail offers quality over quantity. She joined four house trailers with what she calls, with a straight face, catwalks. She installed a bar and rooms for a handful of girls. She advertised the airstrip as a convenience for private pilots. But the private land was ex- pensive. Just feet south was property owned by the United States government and administered by the Bureau of Land Management. It was barren and available. Beverly paid the government a visit. "I said, 'I am Beverly Harrell, and'I own the Cotton- tail Ranch, a Nevada bordello. I would like to lease some land.'" In July of 1970, the Bureau of Land Management agreed to lease .her its property at a year for three years with an option to buy. And Beverly moved. She added a fifth house trailer. She drilled a well. She installed a library, a pot-belly stove, antique bedchamber pots and Tiffany lamps. She attracted the attention, of. among others, Jack Ander- son. He said in his column that the United States government, upholder of law, order and the public health, morals and wel- fare, was the landlord of a bawdyhouse. The Bureau of Land Management cancelled her lease. In 1973, she exercised her option to buy the property and mailed in a cheque for the purchase price. That did it. Cheque declined. Appeal denied. Beverly hired a lawyer and sued. U.S. District Court ruled against her. In April she got an eviction notice in the mail, giving her 90 days to get off the property. "The next best thing that I can do is try another legal channel. The thought occurred to me that there was going to be an assembly seat (open up) in my counties, and I said, 'Let me trv for that.'"

Satellite to help doctors By LINDA WHITSON District Home Economist in training There is a bonus in store, this year, when you're Shopping for school supplies and new fall clothes. Bring the kids with you down to Centre Village Mall and take in the Taste of Alberta display. This is a food products promotion scheme that is to be shown across Alberta this year and will be in Lethbridge at the Mall, August 27-31. The theme is The Taste of Alberta the natural taste of something different. Sounds good doesn't it, especially con- sidering the abundance of delicious Alberta foods. The campaign's objective is to acquaint you as a consumer with the quality and variety of Alberta grown and produced foods. Another aspect is to make us aware of the complex system of marketing which includes the farmers, food processors, wholesalers, and retailers. A third objective is to make you as a consumer aware of the contribution that agriculture makes to the character and way of life in Alberta. The display also includes in- formation about food and nutrition. Donna Thacker and Fran Troppman, home economists in Lethbridge will be on hand with food demonstrations. They will also be handing out food samples of some of the food products on display. There. will also be a draw for a food hamper each day. The promotion is being co- ordinated by Agri-Prom, a non profit organization that includes representatives of i farmers, food processors, wholesalers, brokers, retailers and last but not least, the Alberta of agriculture. Be sure to attend The Taste of Alberta this week in Centre Village Mall. While you're at the mall, I'm sure you'll be looking for school fashions. Children's wear is, of course, not high fashion. Clothes design for ac- tive youngsters must in- corporate durable fabrics, comfort, wearability and function as well as fashion appeal. In the newest crop for fall, fabric colors are fairly bright and the classic, favorites woven checks, plaids, and knitted jacquard patterns predominate. ANNOUNCEMENT DENNIS B. PETERSON Dennis B.

VICTORIA (CP) An ex- periment-to hook up a hospital in the isolated Queen Charlotte Islands with big-city medical expertise via satellite orbiting the earth is to begin in three years. Dr. Hugh MacGuire. ad- ministrator of the islands' general hospital, said that for- mal approval of the two- month experiment, starting in August, 1977, was given at a meeting of federal govern- ment officials this week in Vancouver. It will connect the hospital with University of Ottawa Medical Centre using the Communications Technology Satellite owned jointly by the Canadian government and NASA, the U.S. space agency. The satellite is to be launch- ed early in 1976. MacGuire said the hospital is to have use of a satellite channel three hours a day. on alternative days over the two-month tryout. The federal com- munications department will pay for the ground station and will allow use of the satellite during alloted times at no charge, but the hospital must pay for hooking up the hospital to the ground station and costs of television cameras and monitors. It will allow the hospital's four doctors to have backup support and expertise available now only to urban practitioners. Laboratory results may be monitored and x-rays read by qualified radiologists at the Ottawa Hospital.
