Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, December 5, 1974 Deputy minister shifting swings into high gear OTTAWA (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau's program for shifting his deputy ministers swung into high gear Wednesday with three resignations. Tuesday, he had one resignation and one deputy minister was transferred. Wednesday, it was announc- ed that letters of resignation had been received from James Grandy, 55, deputy minister of industry, trade and commerce; Sydney Williams, 62, deputy minister of agriculture; and Herb Balls, 64, deputy minister of services. Announced late Tuesday as resigning was Sol Simon Reis- man, a strong deputy minister of finance who said he is leav- ing for a new career outside government. Earlier, Mr. Trudeau an- nounced that Basil Robinson, deputy minister of Indian af- fairs and northern develop- ment for four years, was returning to his old depart- ment of external affairs as the No. 2 man. All four departing deputies are eligible for pensions and all have agreed to remain in office until March 31 when successors will be es- tablished. Mr. Robinson replaces E. A. (Ed) Ritchie, 57, who is in hospital following a heart at- tack and stroke. Mr. Ritchie will be given a new govern- ment appointment after further recovery. Southern Alberta needs a John Deere Dealer. Are you interested in a good business opportunity John Deere is the largest manufacturer of agricultural equipment in the world. And we're looking for an enterprising businessman to sell our broad range of machines and products m Southern Alberta. If you're interested in being that man, please contact Mr W. T (Bill) Quinney, Division Sales Manager, John Deere Limited, P.O. Box 8800, Regina, Sask. Call collect: JOHN DEERE The movement at this level of the public service is in keeping with Mr. Trudeau's program of shuffling senior personnel so they can get ex- perience in other departments. However, he "regretted the departure of so many experienced and highly qualified deputy ministers at one time." The announcements imme- diately increased rumors about the so-called "revolt of the which, was alleged after Mr. Trudeau an- nounced in early October that Michael Pitfield, his long- time friend, would be the new clerk of the privy council. The 37-year-old Mr. Pitfield, now studying at Harvard, is deputy minister of consumer affairs. But there was no indication that this affected the decisions of the four deputies to quit before normal retirement. Mr. Reisman is said to be considering several offers in private industry and he said "it seems timely now to consider a new career out- side of government." Mr. Williams said neither Mr. Pitfield's appointment, nor any other factor within government "had any bearing whatever" on his decision to leave the department.

Color 429.99 Air bag future in doubt TORONTO (CP) The future of the air bag, a controversial safety device for automobile drivers and passengers, is in doubt, of- ficials of General Motors say. It's an expensive option for the buyer and a costly item for the manufacturer, said a spokesman for General Motors of Canada Ltd. And few motorists are buying it, he added Wednesday in an interview. GM is one of the first automobile manufacturers to offer air bags as an op- only on its top-of- the-line cars, Cadillac, Buick and Oldsmobile. Only 50 air Air Cushion Restraint System by sold in Canada in 1974 cars, and 91 so far in 1975 models. GM expected a big demand for the air bag but it hasn't materialized. "Its future is pretty much in a GM official in Detroit said. "We may have to scrap it. The public hasn't taken to air bags at all." The Canadian GM spokesman said the company is not promoting the air bag because it's an expensive op- tion. It is being offered as "a public service, sort of." Air bags cost each, he said. They can be used only once and must be replaced at the cost of in the event of an accident. And it costs the company about to make and install each unit in a car. "Of course, it's all worth it if it saves your he said. The inflatable air bag is a by GM at a cost of must respond to an emergency in milliseconds, faster than the flickering of an eyelid.

Jgt, "Eaton's special moment witKyou 50 per cent salary raises urged for MPs OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment is studying recommendations from an in- formal parliamentary com- mittee which suggests that MPs be given salary increases of about 90 per cent but, as yet, there has been no official reaction. The Mac- Guigan (L-Windsor-Walk- Heath Macquarrie Stuart Leggatt West- minster) and Andre Fortin discussed the subject with their caucus members and made recommendations to Mitchell Sharp, privy council presi- dent. The committee was not offi- cially established by Parlia- ment but a government source says its work was "encour- aged" because the govern- ment wants agreement among MPs before introducing legislation on the delicate sub- ject. MPs now receive an- nually, plus an tax-free expense allowance. Before the last increase in 1971, they re- ceived with a tax-free allowance. It is understood suggestions for a new salary range from to with the suggested expense allowance ranging from its current 000 to In addition, it is suggested that in future, salaries be tied to the national average increase in wages and salaries. Prior to the opening of this Parliament on Sept. 30, government sources were predicting a hefty increase in salaries within the first two years. Government sources said Wednesday that legislation to increase salaries is not a high priority "but once we es- tablish there is a clear consen- sus on the matter and the bill wouldn't bog us down in prolonged debate, it could be introduced rather quickly." epidemic scored EDMONTON (CP) Beatings and robberies of citizens under the influence of alcohol have become epidemic in Edmonton, a provincial court judge said Wednesday.
