Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta oecemoer 3, Dateline Alberta GWG lays off workers EDMONTON (CP) Great Western Garments Ltd. (GWG) Monday laid off 450 employees for a week and for two days next week. The move was forced on the company by material shor- tages, a GWG spokesman said. The Edmonton firm produces denim clothing and has a production work force of about 600. The company is confident that materials will start com- ing in by next week and full production as well as employ- ment will soon resume, the spokesman said. Lifer gets extra time CALGARY (CP) A 26- year-old man sentenced to life imprisonment last week when convicted of rape was jailed an additional nine months in provincial court Monday for breaking out of the Calgary Remand Centre. Vernon Roy Craig, of Beiseker, Alta., pleaded guil- ty to a charge that he escaped from lawful custody on Nov. 22 with three others. Craig was arrested a few hours after the escape. Craig, who was sentenced to life imprisonment last Thur- sday, will start serving the nine month term if and when he is paroled on the rape con- viction. Man and wife killed EDMONTON (CP) City police said Monday James Corkhill, 70, and his wife Gertrude, 65, were the vic- tims Sunday morning in a car accident near the city's southern outskirts. Police said the Edmonton residents died after their car slammed into a power pole while travelling on the slippery highway. Several other vehicles skidded on the road at the same time. Compensation awarded EDMONTON (CP) A fractured rib and a bruised stomach won Edwin Anders of Edmonton a award from the provincial Criminal Injuries Compensa- tion Board. The board said Monday Mr. Anders was prevented by his injuries from working as a carpenter and lost in wages. Considering income tax, social assistance and un- employment insurance, the board arrived at the figure of Mr. Anders was beaten Feb. 16 this year. Charges against his alleged assailant were dis- missed in provincial court. UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD.

Jack Major, lawyer for Herbert Alfred Fiedler, told the appellate division of Alberta Supreme Court that Mrs. Fiedler's contribution to the farm was "minimal" rather than as Mr. Justice W. K. Moore ruled in his judgment of July 11. Mr. Justice Moore awarded Mrs. Fiedler, a school teacher at Sundre, 75 miles northwest of Calgary, 50 per cent of the property rights to 1% sections of land near Castor, 120 miles northeast of Calgary. The Fiedlers, both 50, were divorced in 1971 after a 22- year marriage. They lived part of their married life at the Castor farm. VICTORY FOR WOMEN When Mr. Justice Moore's decision was delivered, Mrs. Fiedler called it "not only a victory for myself but a vie- Allowance payments increased EDMONTON (CP) Alberta parents will receive higher family allowances starting Jan. 1, Health Minister Neil Crawford'an- nounced Monday. Ottawa pays for and dis- tributes the allowances although the Alberta govern- ment determines the formula under which the money is dis- tributed. Patents of children up to age 6 will receive instead of a month; 7 to 11, from 12 to 15, from 16 and 17, from INTRODUCED TOKAY Tokay wine was introduced to the world by Hungary. tory for all Canadian women in similar situations." Mr. Major said while Mrs. Fiedler made a "substantial" contribution to the house on the farm, she did not make a "substantial" contribution to the farm operations. He cited the Murdoch and other cases in which divorced women were not awarded rights to property registered in their former husbands' names. The Supreme Court of Canada, in a majority deci- sion handed down Oct. said Irene Florence Murdoch, separated from her husband, did not have property rights to their ranch at Nanton, Alta., as she did not make a "sub- stantial" contribution to the property acquired by the Mur- dochs when they lived together. REAFFIRMS RIGHTS When Mr. Justice Moore handed down his decision, Hugh Landerkin, Mrs. Fiedler's lawyer, called it a significant chapter in Cana- dian legal history in that it reaffirmed women's property rights. "The Murdoch case might have created the impression that the door was closed to women's claims to property rights but. as Mr. Justice Aloore said, each case will be considered in its own merits." Speaking against the appeal Monday, Mr. Landerkin said the key word in contention was whether Mrs. Fiedler made a "substantial" con- tribution to all property ac- quired when the Fiedlers were married. He cited passages from Mr. Justice Moore's judgment which said Mrs. Fiedler con- tributed her teachers' income to the family and that "Mr. Fiedler holds, in trust for himself and Mrs. Fielder, all the farming lands acquired during the period of time the parties were married to each other." The appellate division reserved its decision. Both lawyers said after the hearing that the case would go to the Supreme Court of Canada, with the losing party appealing to the nation's highest court. Until the case is finally settled, Mr. Fiedler will con- tinue to operate the Castor farm.
