Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, August LETHBRIDGE HERALD-3 Dateline Alberta Hospital probe adjourned EDMONTON (CP) The provincial inquiry into the operation of Stony Plain Municipal Hospital was ad- journed Monday until Nov. 4 pending the results of separate investigations into the hospital and one of its doc- tors. The inquiry was ordered by the provincial government following reports earlier this spring and summer of internal staff dissension presenting a potential danger to the quality of patient care in the hospital. The dissension became public April 22 during a cor- oner's inquest into the death of a Spruce Grove man follow- ing a gall bladder operation. Dr. Vilgoen Kntzinger and Dr. B. P. Dreery disagreed at the Oct. 30 inquest over whether the anesthetist left the operating room during surgery. Shareholders to meet EDMONTON (CP) A general meeting of PAP Holdings Ltd. shareholders will be called following a meeting of about 30 shareholders in the defunct Cosmopolitan Life Assurance Co. Edward Duncan, a city lawyer, told the shareholders' meeting last week that they had to elect new directors as a first step in recovering the million they lost when Cosmopolitan collapsed. He advised against further legal action against the com- panies' executive officers. Instead, Mr. Duncan said, the shareholders should approach the Alberta govern- ment for compensation because it is partly responsi- ble "by reason of misaction or inaction of its civil servants." Two charged with murder CALGARY (CP) Two men have been charged with murder punishable by life im- prisonment in connection with Friday's slaying of a 17-year- old service station atten- dant here. Lome John Rivelt, 19, of Calgary, and Myies Garfield Santor, 18, no fixed address, were charged after the stabb- ing death of John Joseph Berze. Mr. Berze was the lone attendant at the Mission Self Service Gulf Station when he was stabbed three times in the chest and left to die in the washroom of the station at a.m. Friday. The slaying, coupled with the death of a 17-year-old Medicine Hat service station attendant, has sparked renew- ed controversy over night employment of persons under 18 years of age. Schools short of space EDMONTON (CP) Several urban and suburban school districts in this area report classroom shortages as they prepare to open for the 1974-75 term. Hardest hit will be the County of Parkland, Zone 1, where superintendent Alvin Myhre says he is expecting an increase of more than 700 students Students will be crowded into gymnasiums and tem- porary quarters until the situation eases with the construction of a new school in Stony Plain, and an addition to the Brookside school in Sherwood Park. The two Edmonton school systems are also expected to face accommodation problems when school opens Tuesday, with not enough classrooms in the new sub- divisions, and not enough students in the inner core.

Car insurance premiums to be linked to income richer Mario Molinari, 40, of Edmonton, seen here with his wife Maria and their child- ren, was richer after Saturday's running of the Canadian Derby Sweep- stakes in Edmonton. Mr. Molinari held a ticket on Progressive Hope. He plans to pay off his mortgage with part of the money. TORONTO (CP) Many motorists in Ontario, Alberta, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia can expect savings averaging 35 per cent on automobile insurance, E.H.S. Piper, counsel for the In- surance Bureau of Canada (IBC) said Monday. The IBC has developed a new system of classifying in- surance coverage in those four provinces which makes the income level of an insured driver more important than claims records or driving ex- perience, and links the cost of the insurance more closely to the automobile rather than the individual. Speaking during a debate on no-fault car insurance at the 56th annual meeting of the Ca- nadian Bar Association, Mr. Piper said some "will see no reduction (in premiums) at all or even a minor increase, others will have minor reduc- tions, while still others will have reductions well in excess of the 35-per-cent over-all average." Insurers will pay 80 per cent of the driver's income if he is injured, regardless of who is at fault. Mr. Piper said, and so persons with smaller incomes are a smaller risk. "The cost of insurance for young drivers will fall dramatically because they will be paid their relatively low economic loss by their own insurer rather than be liable for unknown losses for which today's system holds them responsible." Mr. Piper said independent studies of auto insurance have concluded that "the concept of indemnifying car accident vic- tims based on the principle of Heart lasts INDIANAPOLIS (AP) In- dianapolis school teacher Louis Russell, the world's longest surviving heart transplant recipient, has celebrated the sixth anniver- sary of his life-saving operation. Russell, 49, receiv- ed the heart of a 17-year-old gunshot victim in an operation at the Medical College of Virginia at Richmond on Aug. 24, 1968. individual fault is outmoded." Since insurance costs would follow the automobile rather than the person driving it, fac- tors such as vehicle size and extent of use would determine premium levels, he said.

However, "a return to dry weather would see most of the crop threshed with little loss." Nearly 75 per cent of the wheat is cut in the Medicine Hat Foremost area and 33 per cent is swathed in the Brooks Lethbridge area, said the report. Frost in northern and northeastern Alberta caused an undetermined amount of damage, and in the Camrose- Vermilion and Lac la Biche- St. Paul regions "many crops will likely be cut early for greenfeed." A hail storm which moved through Bowden last week caused up to 100 per cent damage on many farms.
