Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, August LETHBRIDGE Dateline Alberta Shutdown at bad time EDMONTON (CP) The shutdown of grain elevators at Vancouver, effectively tying up Western Canada's grain ex- port industry, couldn't have come at a worse time, a Cana- dian National Railways of- ficial said Thursday. C. F. Armstrong, vice president of CN's mountain region, said in a news release that as far as the railway is concerned, this is the time of year when the biggest volume of grain usually moves. "We have the people, tne motive power and cars, the track capacity and the weather is perfect." Hailstorm damage jumps BOWDEN (CP) The es- timate of damage to this com- munity, about 20 miles south of Red Deer, from a hailstorm Aug. 18 now stands at well above the original estimate. A spokesman for Red Deer Roofing Co. said Thursday that 90 per cent of the asphalt shingles and between 50 and 75 per cent of the cedar shingles in the village must be replaced. Hospital wing planned FORT McMURRAY (CP) A addition to the Fort McMurray General Hospital will likely be built this fall following a town board decision to transfer 3.3 acres to the hospital, Bob Millar, the institution's ad- ministrator, said Thursday. The addition will expand the hospital to 90 beds from 54 and is a first step to building a 300- bed facility, Mr. Millar said. Driver gets six months EDMONTON (CP) Allen David Getschel. 22. of Sherwood Park, was sentenc- ed Thursday to six months in Fort Saskatchewan Correc- tional Institute after pleading guilty to a charge of hit and run in connection with the July 22 death of a city man. Court was told Dennis Lavern Haight. 21, of Edmon- ton, died following a two-car collision in which the accused struck the victim's car and continued on his way. Provincial Court Judge Dean Saks, in sentencing, noted Getschel did not inform police and said the accused didn't stop "simply because he had no insurance." 34 killed on streets EDMONTON (CP) Four traffic fatalities Wednesday and Thursday brought the total number of persons killed on city streets to 34 so far this year. Josee Irene Wilcox, 10, died when she collided with a semi- trailer while riding her bicy- cle and was dragged beneath the truck for 21 feet. George Arthur Claydon. 23, of suburban Namao. died ear- ly Thursday when the motor- cycle he was riding went out of control and struck a power pole.

OVER CIRCULATION Call Display Advertising 328-4411 The LetlibruUje Herald "Serving and Selling the South" Studded tires cheeked for highway damage EDMONTON (CP.) Highways Minister Clarence Copithorne said Thursday Alberta is measuring the use of studd- ed tires, but indications so far are that they do not cause sub- stantial damage to provincial roads. The minister was commenting in an interview on a report from the U.S. highway administration that such tires "do not provide any net safety benefit for drivers and can cause highway problems." Mr. Copithorne said the smaller damage in Alberta may be because material used on highways here is harder than in other provinces and the United States. He said he believes studded tires "are certainly a help to Alberta motorists considering the amount of ice during the winter and there is no similar problem in the U.S. other than in some parts of the more northerly states." Notley critical of government abuse of power EDMONTON (CP) Alberta NDP leader Grant Notley said Thursday night that the provincial govern- ment exhibited "an inex- cusable abuse of power'' in its acquisition of Pacific Western Airlines and that the legislature should be recalled to discuss the matter. Mr Notley, in a news release, criticized the government's method of ac- quiring PWA through an order in council that changed the regulations of the Financial Administration Act. And "it is scandalous that we are given information se- cond hand as a result of a communique sent to Conser- vative party constituency the New Democratic Party leader added. Premier Peter Lougheed announced Aug. 2 that the government had acquired control of the airline. The an- nouncement came a day after Don Watson. PWA president, said in Vancouver that the air- line was recommending its shareholders accept an offer of a share from a then un- identified party. The government deal was made for about 2.3 million common shares and the offer included for each of the preferred shares. CHANGES MADE "PWA was acquired under a change which was made on Aug. 1 in the regulations of the Financial Administration Act." Mr. Notley said. "Under the change, the provincial treasurer is authorized to invest money from a consolidated cash. GRANT NOTLEY investment fund in shares of a corporation that has for a period of three years either paid dividends on its common shares or had earnings available for the payment of dividends. "What this means is that the provincial treasurer can now buy companies without reference to the legislature and without even reference to the entire cabinet." He added this would probably mean that three or four senior ministers, in conjunction with the provin- cial treasurer, would make investment decisions and "the net result is that these ministers are given a free hand to spend our oil wind- fall." "When one considers that legislative control of the ex- penditure of public funds is one of the basic tenets of our parliamentary system, the government's move is inex- cusable." Tighter controls urged for service stations FORTS OF ENTRY opening and closing tithes: Carway 6 a.m. to 12 midnight; Chief Mountain 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Coutts open 24 hours; Del Bonita 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Kingsgateopen 24 hours; Porthill-Rykerts 7 a.m. to 2 a.m.; 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Roosevillc 8 a.m. to midnight. (Times in Mountain Daylight Time.) CALGARY (CP) A group of Calgary service station operators has joined in a growing demand for closer control over all night service stations. Members of the Automotive Retailers Association are cir- culating a petition calling on city council to issue permits lor all stations which desire to stay open all night. Dennis Scott, spokesman for the operators, said permits would be issued only to stations which were widely separated by distance and which would have two or more adult workers on duty at all time. The move came less than a week after a service station attendant was brutally murdered while working alone at an all night station here. Montana post for Calgarian HELENA. Mont. (AP) The appointment of Dr. Leo A. Hamerlynck, 44, of Calgary, as co ordinator of mental retardation and mental health for Montana's department of institutions was announced Thursday by director Edwin G. Kellner. Hamerlynck will serve as a consultant and adviser to all state departments with ser- vices or programs in his field, Kellner said. The job will pay a year. Hamerlynck, who holds master and doctor degrees in education from colleges in his native Oregon, has since 1967 been associate professor of educational psychology at the University of Calgary. Only two nights before a Medicine Hat service station attendant was beaten to death m that eastern Alberta city. He said Calgary service sta- tion operators are "sickened by the horrible murder" of John Berze. 16. and said the death has brought on wide support for closer control of service stations. Staff shortage hits hospital EDMONTON (CP) The Journal says activities at the Alberta Hospital here will be curtailed because of staff shortages until ultimately only "acutely psychotic" patients are admitted. The newspaper quotes a government source as saying the limitation of service at the hospital, slated to get a new forensic unit in 1976, will go so far that the director of the hospital's ex- isting forensic unit, Dr. B. W. M. Dorran, is considering ask- ing court officials to stop referring people for psy- chiatric assessment. The hospital deals court referrals, those judged with unfit to stand trial.
