Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta GAS CONTINUE TILL STRIKE ENDS By THE CANADIAN PREJSS Even as the federal cabinet's decision to recall Parliament to settle the national rail strike was the effects of the freight and passenger tie- ups continued to be felt across the country. They ranged from the distress of stranded tourists in Port Aux to a shortage of rail-shipped gasoline in British Columbia communities. In between were Quebec housewives waiting for an ease In beef Ontario workers laid off because of a car parts prairie farmers looking for grain deliv- eries and northern communities worried about food and other supplies. A few interested groups were with pocketbooks pad- ded by increased Air- trucking firms and hith- erto tittle-used railways unaf- fected by the strike were doing a booming business. In Port MIX there were vacationers in the town Sunday victims of the strike that has cut ferry service between Newfoundland and the mainland. A Montreal spokesman said a delay in settling the dispute might reverse meat-price re- ductions initiated last week. The president of the Canadian Industrial Traffic League warned in Toronto that as many as workers might be laid off within a week if the strike is not settled. A. A. Landry is spokesman for the resenting traffic managers re- sponsible for the movement of goods to and from the plants of 400 of Canada's major manufac- turers and department stores. On the United Grain Growers said three-quarters of the company's elevators in the Peace River district were full and could take no more deliv- eries until rail shipments re- sume. Abo on the spokes- men said the strike might Sherritt Gordon mines in Fort to dose its refinery and fertilizer plants this week.

In Pine manager D. D. Munro of the Abitibi Pa- per Co. Ltd. plant says raw ma- terial supplies will be depleted by Thursday because of the strike and the plant will be forced to close. Air Canada has been handling an average of passengers a day in more than attributing the in- crease largely to tourist travel. In Tnansair said ic is increasing air cargo service to northern Manitoba in response to emergency shortages there. The government should move to get essential services af- fected by the rail strike oper- ating again before Parliament meets Conservative spokesman James McGratb said today. In a prepared Mr. the party's labor said the government's timeteable for re-instating rail services by the weekend only compound problems that already have reached crisis CHILEAN CABINET TO BE NAMED SANTIAGO Salvador Al- lende will swear in a new Chilean government to- night following the collapse of his of na- tional when military leaders withdrew their support. The final blow came Monday night when the navy Admiral Raul resigned as fi- nance minister. His action followed earlier resigna- tions by the chiefs cf the army and air force. Allende invited the military leaders to join the cabinet last month after a strike by Chile's truck owners brought chaos and severe shortages of fuel and medicine. Opposition-backed unions stepped up their of- fensive against the president Monday and Chile's shopkeepers announced a further 24 hour strike in support of the haulage operators. After tonight's cabinet the presi- dent will have to decide whether to leave Chile's political and social chaos to attend the non-aligned summit conference in Algeria. Allende was scheduled to fly to Algiers next Monday but Foreign Minister Clodomiro Almeyda said Monday night the president may have to cancel the trip.

Figures released by the health protection branch reveal that during the first seven months of the govern- ment amphetamine imports for domestic medical use dropped to 12.11 kilograms. In the amount imported was 30.94 kilograms. And in the peak amphetamines import the amount was kilograms. While federal officials say it is too early to tell whether the country's amphetamine problem has been brought under control add that the drop in amphetamine imports support Ottawa's contention that amphetamines were being especially for appetite suppression in weight control and as stimulants for overworked athletes and truck drivers. The federal restrictions came into effect Jan. 1. Doctors are limited to prescribing amphetamines for six specified a malady featuring an uncontrollable tendency to fall hyperactivity in Parkinson's minimal brain and low blood pressure associated tvith anesthesia. Doctors must also report any prescribing to Ottawa within 33 days. The during the first seven months of the has received notifications of 1917 patients being treated with amphetamines. Of the 680 cases reported with the name of the con- litlon being involved treatment of 144 involved 101 involved hyper- activity in 17 involved Parkinson's 11 involved minimal brain and none in- volved low blood pressure. The health department has arranged a meeting with representatives of the two national medical as- sociations early in to review the first months under the controls and to determine whether any changes are warranted. Figures supplied by the Pharamaceutioal Manu- facturers' Association of Canada show a drop from 196 kilograms in 1971 to 42 kilograms in 1972. The PMAC figures are slightly different from the more defined federal figures. A health department official countered by suggest- ing the 1972 decline was due to doctors anticipating the which were originally announced in the Spring of 1972. Look out for letter bombs Commuters arriving at Waterloo Station in the busiest terminus for peak hour will see like this one today warning them to be orv their guard against letter bombs. Today is the first day back after a bank holiday weekend. World-wide bomb alert ordered for U.K. offices WASHINGTON British government offices all over the world are on official alert for mere letter bombs like the one that maimed a secre- tary at the British embassy here Monday. The mission to the United Na- tions and the embassy in Wash- like has been sent a warning from London to watch for more of the bulky en- velopes and parcels in which letter bombs are concealed. In office girls entered the front line in the fight to stop bomb injuries after police warnings that mere devices might be found in the mail when businesses reopened today after a three-day holiday weekend. Monday night a top Scotland Yard official described the bomb situation in London as and said anyone who opens a suspicious package is bloody Ernest the city's dep- uty assistant also announced that all police leave had been cancelled and that the yard's special bomb squad had been tripled in man- power. Police with loudspeakers met commuters arriving for work in London to warn them there could be more bombs hidden among office mail piled up dur- ing the holiday period. The current wave of believed to be by the Irish Re- publican started 10 days Swedish bank job now in sixth day ago with a series of letter fire bombs aimed at London stores and explosives left in shopping bags. The victim of the Washington apparently mailed in the United Kingdom and flown to the United States in a British forces mail was Irish- born Nora whose left hand was blown off by the blast. She is reported calm and resting comfortably after sur- gery to her right which suffered damage to the thumb and index finger as well as the skin. The bulky envelope somehow slipped through a security screen at the embassy mail- room and Mrs. Murray was opening it when it went off. The FBI would not say whether it expected to make any arrests in the United States. The postmark on the en- velope was illegible but it was almost certainly mailed in the United British sources said. STOCKHOLM Stock- holm police drilled more holes today in the ceiling of the down- town bank vault in which two convicts held four hostages for the sixth day. In the police suffered their second cas- ualty. Describing their latest strategy as Swiss the police said the holes would limit the freedom of movement of gunman Jan- Erik a 32-year-old bank and Clark a life-termer for murder who Ol- sson ordered freed as partial ransom for the by ex- posing them to police sharp- shooters.

Prime Minister Trudeau an- nounced late Monday that Par- liament would reconvene the earliest possible to legislate an end to a dispute be- twesn the railways and their non-operating workers. There were how- that the emergency sitting would last far longer than the rail which Labor Minis- ter John Munro predicted could be settled by the weekend. Both New Democrats and Conservatives immediately pressed for debate on living costs and Mr. Trudeau said lier in the day that the sitting not necessarily have to be restricted to the rail dispute. Spssker Lucien Lamoureux estimated that MPs could be back in time for a 2 p.m. EDT sitting Thursday with the help of extra armed forces and transport department flights. The prime minister's an- nouncement followed a day of last-minute attempts by Mr. Munro to negotiate a settle- ment. Before meeting with management and officials of the Associated Non-Operating Rail- way Mr. Munro urged an emergency cabinet meeting to let talks continue for a few more hours. Mr. Trudeau saying later that appeared to be some new hope for a quick set- that hope has he said in a televised statement. Union sources said moments before that they had lowered their wage demands in a lengthy session with Mr. Munro. But chief union bargainer Rich- ard Smith said CP Rail and Ca- nadian National the two largest railways were relying as they had in the past on parliamentary inter- vention. At a news conference Monday Mr. Munro was asked about reports some non-ops in British Columbia would not re- turn to work if legislation was passed. The labor minister said he did not think the men would con- tinue their strike. workers are not the type of men who will defy the laws passed by Parliament in ttie interest of all he said. Whether non-operating railway employees choose to defy ex- pected back-to-work legislation depends on the settlement they get from union spokesman Hugh Critchely says. Mr. Alberta repre- sentative for the Canadian Brotherhood of Trans- port and General going to make any decisions until we realize what the settlement is. too soon to even talk about it at this Union members were over the lack of progress in union-management talks and the government recall of Parlia- ment came as no surprise. Ferry crews in North have turned down a re- quest by the bargaining com- mittee of the non-operating un- ions to restore service between Newfoundland and the main- a.Canadian National Rail- ways said this morning. The spokesman said CN offi- cials in North Sydney had been told by the union they will not abide by the union's request and will maintain pickets at the terminal. Premier Alex Campbell of Prince Edward Island said to- day his government will take le- gal action against the federal government damages aris- ing from the stoppage of the CNR ferry In a telephone interview with The Patriot from his home in Premier Campbell said the federal government's failure to recognize special problems has disappointed me The premier said ha had been unable to persuade Ottawa to provide legislation which would forbid unions to cut off his prov- ince's car-ferry link with the mainland. Premier Campbell said legal action would be taken the federal government for damages arising from the stop- page of the ferry He declined to disclose spe- cific details of the action but in- dicated that more information would be provided later. Nixon home hassle buried in papers SAN CLEMENTE President Nixon says he hopes that making an unprecedented disclosure of his personal fi- nances will end months of con- troversy over how he paid for his home here. Nixon issued a mass of legal documents Monday to show where the money came from. The including an Independent disclosed that his two closest C. O. Rebozo and industri- alist Robert were se- cret partners in an investment firm that bought the bulk of his San Clemente property in De- 1970. It was the first time that an American president has bared the minutest details of his pri- vate real estate dealings. Nixon was prompted to do so by persistent rumors that he bought the home out of 1968 campaign funds and by a volley of press inquiries about a re- cent announcement that the cost to the government for of- fice facilities and security at his two homes so far totalled million. The White House said Monday that President and Mrs. Nixon originally bought their lion estate in 1969 with their own loans from banks and loans from their wealthy friend Abplanalp. Rebozo's part in the transac- tion had not been public knowl- edge because all deeds and mortgages were held by the Title Insurance and Trust Co. and were not filed for public in- spection. The detailed documents and reports from a New York ac- counting firm show that the Nixons sold all but 5.9 acres of their 28.9-acre Pacific ocean- front property years ago to the B. and C. Investment Co. of Los owned jointly by Abplanalp and for AIM president charged with wounding Indian S.D.
