Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, August 28, 1974-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 19 No-fault auto insurance plan for Albertans? EDMONTON (CP) A no-fault automobile insurance plan which could cost Alberta motorists less than existing schemes has been presented to the provincial government for consideration by the Insurance Bureau of Canada. Richard Cooper, manager of the Edmonton branch of the Insurance Bureau of Canada, said the plan would mean premium reductions of between 15 per cent and 30 per cent for young drivers, and up to eight or nine per cent for those over 25. He said the plan would speed up the claims settlement process and "would provide economic assistance to those who have a loss, not just those who prove another person was at Mr. Cooper said. Under the scheme, called Variplan, an employed person would receive 80 per cent of his salary up to a week, non- taxable, in the event he was unable to work because of an ac- cident, regardless of who was at fault. Mr. Cooper added the cost of the insurance is less because administrative costs are reduced under the plan.

Broke with Hitler Prominent Nazi Strasser dies MUNICH (AP) Otto Strasser. 76. a prominent Nazi publicist who broke with Adolf Hitler over party ideology, died Tuesday, the city burial office reported. Strasser spent his last years in obscurity and details about his death were not immediate- ly available. He was last in the news in 1969 when a West German court rejected his appeal for a state pension as a resister of the Nazis. The court ruled that Strasser had beeaa personal opponent of Hitler rather than a principal opponent of Nazism. Strasser, the Nazi publicist in the 1920s, was a party left- winger who resisted Hitler's ideological domination of the fledgling Nazi movement. A fugitive from the Gestapo after the Nazis came to power in 1933, Strasser was stripped of German citizenship during Hitler's 1934 purge of the par- ty. A Second World exile in Canada, he sought a political role in post-war West Ger- many, but his Nazi connec- tions had largely discredited him among Germans and he attracted few supporters. Strasser was an artillery officer during the First World War. He was wounded twice while serving with the 6th Barvarian Division, the same unit in which Hitler served as an enlisted man. After Germany's defeat in 1918, Strasser was involved in urban street fighting. He helped crush a Communist-led revolt in Munich in 1919 and joined the Social Democratic party in Berlin. He fought against rightist supporters of the Kapp putsch in 1920. He broke with the party when it backed away from supporting nationalization of Germany's coal and iron in- dustries. Meanwhile, Otto's brother, Gregor, had emerged as a leading figure in the Munich- based National Socialist German Workers party, Hitler's Nazi movement. JAILED WITH HITLER After the abortive Munich beer-hall putsch of Nov. 9, 1923, Hitler and Gregor Strasser were jailed at Landsberg prison. Strasser was released and while Hitler was writing Mein Kampf at Landsberg, the Strassers began to rephrase the Nazi political program. Opposed to both capitalism 'and Marxism, Strasser cham- pioned a system he called "state in which the government would nationalize land and industrial plants and lease it to German citizens. Otto Strasser became a Nazi party member in 1925 and was editor of several Nazi publications. Towne Country's Hottest Sate of the Hear. A Timely Value!
