Saturday. December 7. 1974 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD 39 New group presses for restoration of death penalty EDMONTON (CP) Con- siderable support is being received by a group of Calgary residents working to have capital punishment for murder restored to Canada's laws, a member of the organization said here. Albert Crowe, a spokesman for the group which calls itself Voice for Canadians, said the mother of a 16-year-old youth killed last summer in a ser- vice station holdup attended a founding meeting. Mr. Crowe said telephones "have been ringing off the wall" at the group's head- quarters as residents hurry to join. He said the group was form- ed to protest a series of robberies recently in Calgary Three petitions in that city Try Mori You Buy UP TO 30-DAY TRIAL ON YOUR DOCTOR'S RECOMMENDATION MAICO SMITH-JONES IHEARING AID SERVICE RIPLEY OPTICAL S Phone 328-5447 urging that capital punish- ment be mandatory in murder cases have been signed by about names, he added. "We, as Canadians, never had a chance to be consulted on the capital punishment issue. It's about time Canadians did something about it." The group also wants more severe penalties for crimes such as robbery. Fuel costs up 100 per cent EDMONTON (CP) A hearing of the Alberta Public Utilities Board was told here Alberta Power's fuel costs will increase by more than 100 per cent by the end of next year. Executive vice president Ron Dalby of Alberta Power accepted calculations that his company's fuel costs for each kilowatt hour of electrical power produced will increase 72 per cent this year and a further 27 per cent next year. The calculations were sub- mitted by A. M. Brownlee, counsel for the Alberta Union of Rural Electrification Associations. Free oil Samuel Klein will pay two cents at most in home-heating costs for every gallon of oil that heats his three-bedroom Ottawa home this winter. The oil itself is free. It's waste oil from car engines that service stations are glad to get rid of when Sam comes asking. Fluoride benefits children BELLEVILLE (CP) A dental hygiene survey of area school children in kindergarten through Grade 3 shows those exposed to fluoridated water have fewer dental problems than those in non fluoridated com- munities. The examination program was carried out during the 1973-74 school year by the Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Health Unit. Results were issued this week "The benefits of fluorida- tion are plainly evident in comparing the percentage of students who have no decay in Picton and Belleville, which have fluondation, with the percentage of students with no decay in Trenton, which does not have said Dr Dennis A. Warnck, direc- tor of dental services. The report shows that in Belleville, fluoridated since 1964, 60 per cent of students examined had no evidence of decay. There were only 14 per cent with poor oral hygiene and just seven per cent requiring urgent treatment. Belleville's results were better than results for Picton, Trenton and Hastings and Prince Edward counties.

The Australian weather bu- reau said in its annual report that record rams fell on nor- mally arid parts of the conti- nent causing widespread flooding, with devastating effects in some places. It described weather condi- tions as "the most extraor- dinary this century The floods caused millions of dollars of damage to crops, homes, roads and farmland. People and animals died as the flood waters spread through New South Wales, Australia's most populous state, Victoria and Queensland As the flooding rains fell, the biggest seas in living memory battered the eastern seaboard taking their toll of beaches, luxury beachside homes and roads Inland, flood waters swept aside anything that stood in the way as they surged across the country Cars were WHY SHOULD YOU PURCHASE A SEMI-DETACHED HOME?

The weather bureau said the conditions were produced by a tropical low pressure area persisting over much of Central Australia's "dead and outback. A spokesman for the Sydney weather bureau said floods which caused havoc in the up- per reaches of Australia's largest river are still on their way downriver before flowing into the sea in south Australia. But as summer starts, there is little sign of the floods in the devastated areas. VICTORIA (CP) Motorists who have been assessed 10 demerit points for Hot having an up to date driver's insurance certificate may apply to the Motor Vehi- cle Branch to have the penalty cancelled, Attorney General Alex MacDonald says. But he said the fine levied for not having the cer- tificate cannot be refunded Mr MacDonald suggested motorists who have lost the points write the MVB and if they show they are "not wilfully at fault" the record will be cleared Here is a CHRISTMAS SUGGESTION a family size GAS BARBECUE 318-6th St. South Phone 329-3646 Lethbridge, Alberta PRESCRIPTION SERVICE AVAILABLE SPECIALS IN EFFECT UNTIL SATURDAY, DEC.
