Thursday, December 3, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 PLANE CATCHER This model at FAA headquarters in Washington shows how a giant net could prevent end-of-runway airliner disasters by snagging the aircraft. The system is being tested at Edwards Air Base, Calif. Test airport device WASHINGTON (AP) A sort of super-strong net and energy absorber that could prevent end-of-runway air- liner crashes is undergoing final tests this week at Ed- wards Ah- Force Base, Calif. Barring major problems, the device could be available to airports in a year, one of its developers said in an inter-- view. The aircraft arresting sys- tem has been developed the last four years by an Ameri- can firm and a French com- pany with the co-operation of both nations' governments. With the arresting system, a barrier net linked to the en- ergy absorbers can rise in front of a plane's nose and wings from a recess in the runway, trapping it before it QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg.

Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield had asked for the gov- Hi STYLE LADIES'and TEENS'SHOES AND SNOWBOOTS in the latest fashions from around the world ARE NOW AT LETHBRIDGE'S NEWEST SHOE BOUTIQUE HiiiiB WORLD OF SHOES 317A SIXTH STREET SOUTH ernment's view on the fact that the prices and incomes commis- sion had not been able to reach agreement with industry on continuation of the present costs-and-priee guides into 1971. He asked whether such a continuation was considered un- workable or unnecessary. Mr. Benson said the commis- sion concluded it was not possi- ble to have industry agree to such guides without similar agreement from labor. It was agreed that the commission would carry on with its investi- gations into particular price and wage increases. David Lewis (N D P o r k South) asked whether, in mew of what he called the commis- sion's obvious failure to reach its objectives, the government would consider abolishing it'' at least firing its' pontificating John Young. Mr. Lewis had noted that the supplementary spending esti- mates before the Commons did not contain any reference to the commission and he asked whether there was significance to this. Treasury Board President C. M. Drury said the main esti- mates contained provision for the commission, and if this amount is not sufficient "it may be necessary" to table further supplementary estimates.

(AP) Donald Lee Kaminski, 40- y e a r -o 1 d cigarette smoker, beer drinker, outdoorsman and life of the party, today celebrates the second anniver- sary of his heart transplant. "You know, people have a little heart trouble and they sit around, so careful and all; that's not my Kaminski said in an interview. Kaminski was close to death when he received the heart transplant at the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor Dec. 2, 1968. Kaminski's heart muscle had disease called carduomyopathy. The doctors told him a heart transplant would give him a 50-50 chance to go on living. There was no immediate donor in sight. In late Novem- ber, 1968, Kaminski was given 10 days to live. Then on Nov. 30 Robert J. Pushman, 22, a senior at Cen- tral Michigan University and a former high school football star, was injured when a car overturned near Flint. Doctors said he was going to die because of brain dam- age. His father and mother remembered the youth had said he wanted to donate his body for use by doctors should anything happen to him. Arrangements were made for the transplant operation on Kaminski, a public rela- tions man who is a divorced grandfather. STIFF DEFENCE RULES CAMBRIDGE, Mass.

Premier Thatcher said he has not yet studied a statement by John Young, chairman of tiie federal government prices and income division, but "the guide- lines will be continued in Sas- katchewan." He said the province will con- tinue its policy of wage re- straint on government agencies and on groups to wlu'ch cash grants are made. Women prisoners tear-gassed SAIGON (AP) Two women prisoners of a South Vietnamese prison charged today that riot police beat and tear-gassed more than 100 women prisoners and threw lye or acid on the group. They said they were among 416 female political prisoners at the Tan Hiep prison near Bien Hoa, 15 miles north of Saigon. When the women protested living conditions at the prison and claimed that some of them sre still confined even though they had served their sentences, prisoners said officials threat- ened to ship some of them tn another prison at Hue in north- ern South Vietnam. The women refused to be transferred and staged a dem- onstration, and riot police were called, "The police beat us, threw tear gas grenades at us and threw some or said one of the women now in Saigon. The Saskatchewan policy will apply for next year lo sucX groups as civil servants, hospi- tal workers and teachers. The Saskatchewan g o v e r n- ment has been using six-per- cent guidelines this year and Premier Thatcher said recently they may be lowered to five per cent next year.
