Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Datollira Escapee pleads guilty EDMONTON (CP) A city man who escaped from the custody of police last month and was recaptured in Odessa, Sask., pleaded guilty in provincial court Tuesday to charges of rape and wounding with intent. Edward Millard, 26, was remanded to Dec. 11 for sentencing. The charges arose from an incident Sept. 25 involving a 23-year-old woman who was raped and wounded in the neck. Millard was arrested the day following the incident, and was later released on bail. However, his bail was later revoked and he escaped police custody while being escorted to a police cell. Millard was arrested in Odessa after a family had been held in their farmhouse overnight while police sur- rounded the building.

The three-day occupation ended peacefully last weekend when Indian Affairs Minister Judd Buchanan agreed to meet the chiefs from the Calgary area. However, Mr. Buchanan said charges might be initiated against the In- dians. department's office in Calgary said Tuesday no deci- sion has been made whether to swear a complaint alleging certain offences. Nick Taylor, Alberta Liberal party leader, has sent a telegram to Mr. Buchanan asking him not to press charges against the Indians from Edmonton, Calgary and Lethbridge who took over the department office. Mr. Taylor said while the occupation might be illegal, pressing charges would be a bad mistake. A spokesman for the Mr. Taylor joined the Calgary Labor Council, the Calgary Police Commission and Police Chief Brian Sawyer in criticising Mayor Rod Sykes' comments on the occupation. Mayor Sykes said last week the Indian occupation was il- legal and Chief Sawyer should have seni in policemen to get them out. A key issue in the occupa- tion involved complaints by Indians that they are not being properly helped to make their way in the cities. They lose their federal assistance when leaving the reserves. Warm greeting Yasser Arafat, left, leader of the Palestine Liberation Organization, received a warm greeting from Yugoslav President Tito Tuesday in Belgrade. Tito pledged continued help to the Palestinian struggle for a national homeland. Oil contingency plan suggested CALGARY (CP) The Alberta government should draw up detailed contingency plans to ensure the viability of the oil industry, Nick Taylor, leader of the provincial Liberal party, said Tuesday. In a prepared release, he noted that the federal budget last May gave Premier Peter Lougheed "advance notice that the entire area of oil and gas taxation was going to change." "He had ample time and in- dication to come out with a detailed contingency plan that would indeed encourage oil and gas companies to keep ex- ploring for new reserves." Mr. Taylor said the Alberta Conservation Board has warn- ed that the province is running Computerized voting system wins friends OTTAWA (CP) The days of marking an X on a ballot may be a thing of the past in Ontario provincial, elections. Provincial officials in- dicated they were more than pleased with Ottawa's venture into a computerized voting system. It was the first such mechanized system used in Ontario. Provincial observers predicted that more municipal elections will be computerized in future. Ottawa voters faced a card- board data processing card on election night instead of the traditional paper ballots that in earlier years were sometimes three feet long. Voters inserted the cards, similar to a telephone bill, into a special vote recorder that listed the candidates un- der seven columns cor- responding to columns on the cards. When a choice had been made, the voter would press a metal stylus corresponding to a name. The cards were then taken to a centre in the city's west end by returning officers and fed into a computer. Inspect gifts OTTAWA (CP) Gift- wrapped packages will not es- cape airport security checks during the Christmas holiday season, the transport depart- ment said yesterday. It said in a news release that packages carried by passengers into aircraft cabins may be opened, although it un- likely in larger airports where x-ray machines have been in- stalled to examine packages and baggage. To avoid delay, passengers should pack gifts into luggage to be stored in the aircraft baggage hold. out of oil and gas, and the government should adopt an Alberta first export policy. He said Mr. Lougheed had taken an "uncompromising stand" with the federal government on resource tax- ation, which would mean a series of long courtroom debates. He said some concessions could be negotiated with Ot- tawa if Mr. Lougheed would show a willingness to com- promise. DID YOU KNOW THAT SHOPPERS DRUG MART CENTRE VILLAGE MALL OPEN UNTIL P.M.
