Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 1 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Salurdny, December 12, 1970 Pleads for CALGARY (CP) Although Alberta has a higher percent- age of women in (lie labor force than any olhcr province, legis- lative improvements are need- ed to protect women's rights, Mrs. Lola Lange said Friday. Mrs. Lange, who helped draft the report on the status of women, said changes are need- -j gf 1'eslth and welfare, education and family law. "The status of women in Al- berta will not improve until the provincial government accepts responsibility for the dis- crimination and begins to implement recommendations" from the royal commission re- port. .Mrs. Laneo of Claresholm, said women can help their cause by examining their needs and tile laws and practices in the province which affect them. The main provincial efforts should be directed at ensuring women get equal pay as men for equal work, establishment of family life programs and child-care boards to supervise such tilings as Ires. day-care cen- S GOLD RIVER, B.C. (CP) Tlie bodies of two Soviet sea- men missing since Monday when they left their freighter for a hike were found by searchers Friday in a rugged canyon at the base of Muchalat Mountain. Felix Chichev, 31, chief radio operator on the Novikov Priboy, and third engineer Vladimir Tushenko, 32, told friends on the ship they planned to hike up the 2.000-foot peak and photograph their ship. The bodies were found about 100 yards apart in Boulder Creek in a canyon. RCMP said they believed the pair drowned. UNICEF ousted from PO ST. PETERSBURG, F1 a. (AP) Claiming UNICEF Christmas cards give aid and comfort to the enemy by send- ing money to North Vietnam, anti-Communist groups have halted the sale of the cards in St. Petersburg's main post off- ice. UNICEF, the United Nations International Children's Emer- gency Relief Fund, sells the cards to benefit children in un- derdeveloped countries. "I can't accept the idea of people denying children, espe- cially children who have noth- said Marjorie Yiiigsl, who for live years has set up a UN1- CEF card booth in the post off- ice. She said she had been told by St Petersburg Postmaster Rob- ert K. Hal-wood that he "had re- Uniform has unity farm, Alberta's 10-month-old or- ganization of farmers and their commodity groups, successfully put unity to the test during their first annual convention which ended Friday. More than 500 delegates, rep- resenting more than farmers, attended the four-day convention of the policy-making organization and there was no hint they were not satisfied with Unifarm's operation. Unifarm was formed last March when the Alberta Feder- ation of Agriculture merged with the Farmers Union of Al- berta and while there have been some growing as a lack of communication with the "grass the new entity has made progress. Saskatchewan farm groups now are studying the organiza- tional structure of Unifarm and Clyde Jarvis, Montana Farm- er's Union president, told the delegates Friday his organiza- tion is "impressed" with Uni- farm. Unifarm will be led by a new president dining the coming year. Dobson Lea, a 57-year-old Jarvie, Alta. farmer and former vice-president of Unifarm was elected to replace Paul Babey, 42, who retired. WAS LEADER Mr. Babey was president of the Farmers Union for six years and is credited with leading the move to the merger of the two Alberta farm groups. At the founding convention last March, delegates rejected a proposal that the Alberta Farmers' Union merge with the National Farmers Union led by Coy At- kinson of Saskatoon. Richard Page of pidsbury was elected to fill the vice-presi- dent's vacancy created by Mr. Lea's election and he will repre- sent organization's direct Delia was returned as vice-pres- ident, -epresenting the commod- ity groups, by acclamation. Agriculture Minister H. A. Olson told delegates that Uni- farm's major achievement was bringing together the many voices of agriculture into one dynamic and effective organiza- tion. Delegates approved a lengthy program for the organization to work on during the coming year. The program's basic con- cern is that the net income to farmers be increased. ceived telephoned threats that pickets would come to the build- ing and he wouldn't let us have space this year unless specifi- cally authorized by higher au- thority." Asked if he had denied the UNICEF group space, Harwood replied: "The only thing I can tell you is that they did it last year and we just got the devil from vet- erans organizations and other agencies. We didn't have the space, so they were not permit- ted this year." Two weeks ago is Lakeland, 40 miles to the east, a minister led a group of 10 pickets in front of the federal building to protest the sale of UNICEF cards. Rev. Morris McDonald, pastor of Faith Bible Presbyterian Church, said he organized picketing to protest sending aid to North Vietnam. "The UNICEF folder says aid goes to North Vietnam, and al- though it says American dollars aren't directed there I feel such donations open a way to give aid or comfort to an he said. Mrs. Yingst said UNICEF card sales in St. Petersburg will continue through church organi- zations. Propose rapid transit CALGARY (CP) A plan for a fully automated rapid transit system costing mil- lion and capable of moving passengers a day through the downtown area was presented to a special meet- ing of city council Friday. It took three years for pri- vate consultants, seven city de- partments and tiie provincial government to assemble the report. The plan calls for lines serv- ing the University of Calgary, the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and major shop- ping centres. The rapid transit system would be a 13.3-mile network operating in a north-south axis with fifteen passenger stations interspersed among 5.9 miles of elevated track, 3.7 miles of grade, 2.8 miles of subway and 0.9 miles of transitions. Pusher gets 10 years CALGARY (CP) One man was sentenced to 10 years in prison, another was sent to jail for two years and a woman was placed on probation for two years when they appeared in magistrate's court Friday following a pharmacy robbery.

Philip, Trenton, Ont Marcliand's incentives plan hit OTTAWA (CP) Unemploy- Minister Jean Marchand had ment and the need for new initi- felled to understand how incen- m o n s debate amendments to atives in the Canadian economy were the main concerns in Com- here over broaden the government's industrial incen- tives program. Opposition MPs spun out the debate for the full day, leaving no chance for Prune Minister Trudeau to expound as expected on plans for creation of a giant new department of the environ- ment. Second-reading considera- tion of the bill will continue Monday. EXTENDS PROGRAM The incentives bill, following from anouncements in the budget speech last week, would extend the present program of grants and loan guarantees to manufacturing firms to the service industries. It would also designate Montreal and three high-unemployment counties in eastern Ontario as eligible for the incentive grants. The designation of Montreal was a bitter thought for Louis- Roland Comeau Western Nova) who suggested the government has written off the Atlantic provinces since the Conservatives hold 25 of the 32 House seats in the area. The new designated area brings all of Canada east of On- tario, except for Labrador, into the incentive plan. Mr. Comeau protested there was little sense in providing incentives to indus- try to locate in Yarmouth, N.S., for example, if they also applied in Montreal. Objections of a similar sort were raised by other Conserva- tives from outside Central Can- ada.

Newfoundland, he said, has re- ceived only of mil- lion spent in grants in the past year. A mere wide-ranging discus- sion of regional development was offered by Arnold Peters H i s main concern was for initiatives that would encourage process- in Canada of Canadian res- ources. Japan, he said, has extenslva operations in Canada and yet refuses to permit foreign-control of industries at home. "They must think we are idiots in Can- ada because we give them full control of any of our natural resources and allow them to be taken out of the Country and processed in Japan." Japan has need of a million more workers, Mr. Peters said. "If Canada wanted to export the unemployed for the next year they could go to Japan."
