Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, 7, 1974 News in brief Queensland rebuffs Whitlam BRISBANE (Reuter) Voters in Australia's Queensland state dealt a stunning blow to Prime Minister Gough Whitlam and his federal Labor adminis- tration by a massive swing to the right in today's election for a new state Parliament. With more than 80 per cent of the vote counted, Queensland Labor Leader Percy Tucker conceded defeat in face of the loss of at least 22 seats to the right-wing National and Liberal parties. More than voters went to the polls throughout the huge Northern Australian state in what was effectively the first electoral test of the popularity of Whitlam's government since it narrowly retained federal power in general elections last May. Airport rescue hunt ends TEHRAN (AP) Tehran Mayor Gholarnreza Neikpay said today that rescue teams had ended a 30-hour search for bodies in the collapsed main terminal at the airport after finding 16 corpses. The mayor said the rescue teams had found 11 persons alive in the rubble after the terminal roof collapsed Thur- sday. An airport worker, Ali Samervati, 26, said a shouted alarm from someone in the terminal "as dust began pour- ing from the ceiling" helped keep down the death toll. Between 50 and 100 people were in the hall, but most got clear in time. Housing starts decline OTTAWA (CP) Housing starts in November declined 36 per cent to from 079 recorded in the same month last year, Central Mortgage and Housing Cor- poration (CMHC) reported Friday. Totals for the first 11 months of the year were a decline of 18 per cent from the same period in 1973, the corporation said in a news release.

The 115-6 vote made it vir- tually certain the charter would win final adoption in the assembly. Canada abstained after Canadian delegate Norman Berlis said Canada supported the charter's basic objectives but disagreed with a number of its provisions. The United States was one of the six countries opposing the resolution. Earlier Friday, the U.S., already smarting from a series of rebuffs at the current General Assembly session, had denounced UN resolutions as one-sided and unrealistic. U.S. Ambassador John Scali indicated to the General Assembly the decisions he had in mind included the assembly votes to suspend South Africa and to restrict Israel to one major speech in the Palestine debate. The resolution on nation- alizing property was also op- posed by five European Com- mon Market countries. Eight other countries, including the four other Common Market members, joined Canada in abstaining. Nearly 100 developing coun- tries sponsored the charter, which is a pet project of President Luis Echeverria of Mexico. The charter says each state has the right to nationalize foreign property with the pay- ment of appropriate compen- sation, with any controversy over the amount being "settl- ed under the law of the nationalizing state." Some Western countries ob- ject to the idea of settling dis- putes over pay for nationaliz- ed property in accordance with national rather than international law. Berlis, who serves as Cana- dian ambassador to the UN Economic and Social Council, said Canada firmly supported the charter's objectives, namely the formulation of principles and guidelines to enable each international community to establish an equitable distribution of the world's wealth. But he said the charter would, in effect, give states the right to nationalize foreign property without adequate compensation. Such a prin- ciple, he said, means confisca- tion of property. Herb Gray queries building tax cut OTTAWA (CP) Herb Gray, chopped from the cabinet in a post-election shake-up, haunted his old colleagues Friday by questioning the effect of a proposed cut in the federal sales tax on building materials. The reduction, from a top rate of 12 per cent to an across-the-board rate of five per cent, is supposed to benefit home buyers, he said during Commons debate on a sales and excise tax bill. Builders in all parts of the construction industry will skim off some of the gravy because the cut is not limited to housing materials, he said. He agreed there are strong arguments for cutting the tax but suggested that consumers might lose to builders who pocket the benefit in the form of higher profits. The Commons, sparsely at- tended when Mr. Gray spoke, gave second reading to the bill, sending it to committee for clause-by-clause study. Instead of cutting the tax, the government could have guaranteed full benefit to con- sumers by increasing the newly-announced grants the government pays to first- time buyers of new moderately-priced houses. 6Unlawful behavior' pipeline byproduct Resource tax decision waits OTTAWA (CP) Mines ministers from across the country hammered at federal tax policies Friday, but after three hours decided to push the matter to one side. The sticky question of re- source taxation took up the en- tire morning session at the meeting of federal and provin- cial mines ministers, with nine of the provinces opposing Ottawa and only Nova Scotia expressing support. But after failing to reach a consensus at the closing meet- ing, the ministers moved on to discuss other mineral matters, leaving resource tax- ation for further examination at a federal-provincial finance ministers meeting here Mon- day and Tuesday. OTTAWA (CP) An upsw- ing in the trend towards a ma- jority population of non- natives, an increase in social disorientation and unlawful behavior and a possible deteriorating quality of life in some settlements all face the Western Arctic if the propos- ed Mackenzie Valley pipeline is approved, says a govern- ment study of the project made public Friday. The government team, made up of experts in various fields from a number of federal departments, was charged with the responsibili- ty of assessing the application filed by Canadian Gas Arctic Pipelines in support of its application to build the billion pipeline. Their assessment will form part of the hearings to be con- ducted by Mr. Justice Thomas Berger in Yellowknife starting in early March. Judge Berger is to advise the government what con- ditions might be attached if the company is granted a right-of-way for the pipeline from the Yukon border to the south. The territories now has an estimated population of About two-thirds of it is either treaty Indian or Eskimo. Among the effects the pipeline would have, ac- cording to the government group, are: levels of "social disorientation and un- lawful behavior in com- munities strongly affected by the pipeline, such as Inuvik, Hay River and Fort Simpson. Mackenzie Valley communities supplying a labor force for the pipeline may experience a deteriorating quality of life and perhaps a decline in status and population. some local price and cost inflation due to shor- tages and bottlenecks in ac- commodation, serviced land, etc. EDMONTON ARRIVAL Prototype train has smooth run EDMONTON (CP) The LRC light, rapid, comfor- table train, billed as the most modern train in Canada and still in prototype form, made a smooth but uneventful Calgary-Edmonton and return run Friday. Dozens of townspeople along the 184-mile route turn- ed out to watch as the train took exactly the predicted time to make its journey three hours and 10 minutes. The LRC had arrived at CP Rail's South Edmonton sta- tion at a.m. and left for the return run to Calgary at p.m. right on time. With a more conventional train, it takes about 3Vz hours to make the one-way trip to Calgary from Edmonton or vice versa. Developed and designed by Alcan Products Ltd., Dofasco, and Montreal Locomotive Works, the 68-foot sleek, gray LRC locomotive knifed its way through the country side, slowing only for towns and a three-minute stop at Red Deer. The train is capable of speeds in excess of 130 miles per hour, but the fastest it travelled Friday was 75. The maximum allowable on the CP track between Calgary and Edmonton is 90 m.p.h. It pulled one 85-foot prototype coach designed to carry 84 passengers, which on this trip carried 30, and two regular rail cars one carry- ing diesels used to power com- puters that analyse the journey, and the other a regular passenger car that LRC crewmen called home for the last two months. Municipal Affairs Minister Dave Russell, Provincial Treasurer Gordon Miniely and Doug Burrows, Edmonton Utilities commissioner, were among those who made the Edmonton-Calgary trip. OTTAWA (CP) The com- mission of inquiry into the RCMP's handling of citizen complaints and internal dis- ciplinary procedures has gone to great lengths to hear from the public. After completing the first series of hearings Friday, chairman Judge Rene Marin said in an interview that "we've tried to anticipate and remove everything that might discourage people from com- ing to us." One of the considerations was to pick sites for the hearings well away from courts and policemen. "We've been criticized for the cost of holding the hearings in hotels, but if we held them in a court, witnesses would have to pass through three layers of police to get to us." The commission decided that people who wanted to complain about the RCMP would be uneasy by the for- mality of a court room or the presence of policemen. Deliberate planning by the commission also has provided a relaxed informal at- mosphere at the hearings, Co-operation endorsed WASHINGTON (AP) West German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt, winding up two days of talks with Presi- dent Ford, says the western nations should work co- operatively on economic and oil policies. Schmidt told a National Press Club audience Friday that West Germany and the United States "concur in their assessment of the world economic situation, of the problems and also the dan- gers." Alberta seeks workers with witnesses sitting at a desk facing the com- missioners and the only for- mal note being that all are asked, to stand when the five commissioners enter and leave the room. The opening session of the hearings that will take the commission to every provin- cial capital began here Nov. 26 and heard repeated calls for an end to what were term- ed the RCMP commissioner's medieval powers over members of the force and for an independent body to hear complaints against mem- bers. Complaints against members of the RCMP now are investigated by the force. But the most strident call came from the Native Council of Canada, an organization representing Metis and nonstatus Indians which said bitterness and misunder- standing are alienating the RCMP and the natives. The hearings now move to Toronto Dec. 16, are schedul- ed for Montreal in January before moving to provinces where RCMP enforce provin- cial laws on a contract basis. Farmers pledge aid for humanity WINNIPEG (CP) The National Farmers Union end- ed its fifth annual convention Friday with a warning that politicians and bureaucrats can expect more action as the farm organization seeks to improve the lot of both farmers and humanity around the world. The 600 delegates at the final session of the week-long meeting heard Roy Atkinson of Saskatoon, elected to his sixth term as president, say EDMONTON (CP) Salva- tore Prete had to close his Italian Gardens restaurant to the lucrative noon-hour crowd because he couldn't find a cou- ple of waitresses and a kitchen helper to hire, even at the going rates. John Dempsey, manager of Kroehler Manufacturing Co. Ltd., needs about 50 employees to maintain fur- niture production. He had to hire about 300 in a year to hold that level. Now he's ex- perimenting with ways to re- tain employees. R. R. Smith, personnel man- ager for The Bay here, said his stores needed employees in almost every department and have put leaflets offering jobs into the mailbox- es of houses near company warehouses. "We may even resort to hustling people on the street." This is what happens when a province's unemployment rates drops to 2.2 per cent of the labor force lowest in Canada. Economists consider anything below four per cent as full employment. The national average was 5.4 per cent. One of the few outfits in Al- berta not having any trouble keeping enough employees to handle business is the Unem- ployment Insurance Commis- sion. The Edmonton office, also in charge of the Northwest Territories and northern Alberta, laid off 115 workers in the last year. Most industry spokesmen believe the labor shortages will get worse before they get better. Not even the already- evident slackening of interest in Alberta by the multi- national oil companies will make much difference, they say. It has been estimated that Alberta's booming economy the union intends to achieve its goals relating to current problems in the cattle in- dustry. The delegates adopted a major paper on philosophy, in- creased membership fees to from and suggested that it take the lead in in- troducing new concepts of land tenure to ensure farmers retain control of the land through their governments rather than lose it to giant corporations.

The Calgary immigration office reported that the number of temporary work permits granted to foreign workers in Alberta increased by 20 per cent in less than a year to in the first three- quarters of 1974. The Alberta department of labor and manpower has es- tablished offices in Toronto and London, England, to en- courage skilled workers to come to the province.
