Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, December 12, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Alberta Massage bylaw questioned EDMONTON (CP) The city's massage parlor bylaw appears to violate the province's human rights legislation, city solicitor Harry Wilson says. Mr. Wilson told city council there is a "good possibility" portions of the bylaw, which prohibits massages being given by members of the op- posite sex, are invalid because they enfringe on a person's right of employment regardless of sex. Council referred the ques- tion to a committee. Police trial date set CALGARY (CP) Two Calgary police officers will be tried in provincial court Feb. 5 on charges of assault caus- ing bodily harm. Constables J. V. Collomb and L. D. Earl pleaded not guilty in a court appearance Wednesday. The charge arose from an incident in September involv- ing Horst Minkofski, who swore the charge against the officers after his vehicle was stopped by police for a routine check of equipment. Car breaks through ice PEACE RIVER (CP) RCMP said Wednesday no decision has been made on an inquest into the death of Jack Henry Flett of Gift Lake, who died when he tried to cross Gift Lake in a car. Police said Mr. Flett was driving his vehicle across the lake last weekend when it broke through the ice and plunged into the water. Mr. Flett managed to swim to the surface but failed to reach the shore, and was pronounced dead on arrival at hospital. Gift Lake is about 190 miles northwest of Edmonton. Drinkers offered plan FORT McMURRAY (CP) Persons who repeatedly appear before provincial court on drinking charges in this northeastern Alberta community are being offered an alternative to jail. The Nistawoyou Friendship Centre will pay the cost of sending repeaters to a detox- ification centre in Meadow Lake, Sask., for a month of treatment. The first person to take ad- vantage of the program, a woman, was flown to Meadow Lake last week. Offenders recommended for the program who choose, not to volunteer will be sent to a minimum security institution. UNITED MOTORS Calgary mayor adviser in study EDMONTON (CP) Calgary Mayor Rod Sykes will act as an adviser to a con- sultant's study into track relocation and possible development of Canadian National Railways' downtown Edmonton holdings. Mr. Sykes and Edmonton developer Christian Graefe, who together recently formed Community Property Research Ltd., an Edmonton.- based consulting firm, will act as advisers in the study to be co-ordinated by Thomas N. Yarmon. Yarmon will guide the investigation into such factors as soil conditions, flight paths, rail-line relocation, access roads, utility provisions and environmental concerns. Before entering politics, Mr. Sykes was a vice presi- dent of Marathon Realty, the real estate and development subsidiary of CP Rail. He was involved in develop- ment of railway property, including the Palliser Square development in downtown Calgary. The involvement of the Calgary mayor in the Ed- monton project was generally welcomed at Edmonton city hall. "It's a private study with the CN, they can engage whoever they said Ed- monton Mayor Bill Hawrelak. 1 Aid. Ron Hayter said: "It's legitimate for him to be in- volved in business transac- tions outside his city. Stan Hampton, com- missioner of special projects for Edmonton, agreed: "I suppose any mayor is entitled to be in private business."

"Serving you over a quarter Century" 302 3rd South______________Phone 327-2805 MEDICINE HAT (CP) Brucellosis, a highly con- tagious cattle disease, "has become more and more of a problem and we are doing less and less about says G. R. Whenham, assistant director of the agriculture department's veterinary ser- vices division. He told a meeting of southern Alberta ranchers that statistics indicate a sharp increase of incidence in cer- tain areas, particularly On- tario. Herds currently under quarantine include 376 in On- tario, 163 in Quebec, nine in British Columbia, 22 in Alber- ta, 159 in Saskatchewan, 44 in Manitoba and four in the Maritimes, he said. Brucellosis, an incurable Injuries fatal EDMONTON (CP) Brian Vestby, 16, of Winterburn, died yesterday from injuries suffered in a Nov. 3 traffic ac- .c'ident in the city. Come to Calgary disease which results in abor- tion usually between two and four months after exposure, is the responsibility of the federal health of animals branch. Federal officials tried to eradicate the disease by dis- couraging vaccination in favor of blood tests and dis- posing of infected animals, said Dr. Whenham. "Perhaps I shouldn't be say- ing this, but the federals have he said in an inter- view after his speech. He said the health of animals branch conducted an excellent program, "but they acted too soon." He quotes studies in the United States which showd of 14.6 million cattle tested to be infected, and increases of incidence at eight per cent in 1973 and 12 per cent so far this year. "I am afraid if action isn't soon taken, we in North America may soon be back where we were in 1950." Elmer Young, health of 'animals officer in Calgary, said in a telephone interview Wednesday that the number of infected and quarantined herds had increased "to a especially in On- tario. He said the Ontario increase was caused by ineffective inspections of cattle coming into auction marts. The flareups in northeastern Alberta last June were due to the move- ment of infected cattle from Saskatchewan and many cases were hereditary infec- tions from infected cows. Dr. Young said the federal program had reduced the ac- tual number of infected animals. Vaccination would "never cure an estimated 25 to 30 per cent of the cattle pop- ulation" and many of Canada's export markets don't permit the entry of vac- cinated animals. "Provincial authorities are expecting a miracle. They figure we should have had our eradication completed five years ago. But it can't happen He agreed that the "Americans are in trouble" with the disease, explaining that they never conducted the thorough examinations which are used in Canada. Royal Red.
