He was 85. Only two months ago, he had been honored by Mayor Abraham Beame and presented the city's highest award, the Bronze Medal of Honor. Decision reserved in trafficking case Provincial Judge L. W. Hudson has reserved decision to Dec. 20 in the case of a Lethbridge man charged with possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking. Gary Peter Tompkins was charged Sept. 23 after a sub- stance was found inside the right front hubcap of his car. RCMP searched the vehicle on the side of a gravel road near Taber. RCMP Constable Ken Kramer testified in provincial court Friday Mr. Tompkins was observed picking up a package at the Taber bus depot and followed to the dis- trict road. Analysis showed the substance found by police to be marijuana and hashish. About two ounces of hashish and 13 sticks of "elephant weed" were found in the hub- cap. Elephant weed, the court was told, is the flowering part of the marijuana plant wrapped around a stick four to five inches long. Const. Kramer testified the marijuana and hashish had a total wholesale value of about and a street value of about Mr. Tornpkins, in giving testimony, did not deny being in possession of the drugs but did deny he was intending to sell them. Defence counsel called Lawrence Kotkas, a local physician and psychiatrist, to testify as to the mental and physical condition of Mr. Tompkins. Dr. Kotkas said he had treated at least 100 drug ad- dicts and the doctor testified he felt Mr. Tompkins was in the top 10 per cent of the more serious cases he worked on. Mr. Tompkins testified he has used all kinds of drugs for a number of years; mari- juana, LSD, cocaine, and heroin. He said he drove to Cranbrook, flew to Vancouver and bought the hashish and marijuana sticks and sent the drugs by bus to Taber. "I flew back to Cranbrook and drove to Taber to pick up the Mr. Tompkins said. He said he used the Cranbrook-Vancouver route because he didn't want to be searched by police at the air- port in Calgary. The drugs cost him he said, and the money came from a job with Canadian Pacific Railway. "There was a drought on in Lethbridge that I figured would last more than two weeks and drugs were too ex- pensive here so I went to Van- couver to get enought to last me until the drought Mr. Tompkins said. Mr. Tompkins admitted un- der cross examination that on April 3 he delivered 15 pounds of marijuana to another man at a Lethbridge residence. Henry says Atlantic co-operation needed BRUSSELS (AP) State Secretary Henry Kissinger says Western defences will be affected by "political in- stability" unless the Atlantic Alliance agrees to un- precedented levels of co- operation and consultation. Speaking to reporters Fri- day following a two-day ministerial meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization Kissinger said the Ford administration will consult with the allies before taking any longterm economic ac- tion. The threat of high oil prices and of foundering economies were the main subjects at the NATO talks, which in the past had been centred on counter- ing the military threat of the Soviet bloc. Kissinger said rival oil strategies of the United States and France can be reconciled at a meeting starting today between Presidents Ford and Valery Giscard d'Estaing on the Caribbean island of Mar- tinique. Washington proposes to combat high oil prices by seeking a solid front of in- dustrialized oil importers. But France has boycotted the 16-nation International Energy Agency, sponsored by the U.S., and has pressed instead for immediate talks with the Arabs and other ma- jor oil producers. Kissinger stressed that the U.S. agreed with France "in principle" but remained firm on a united consumers' front. "In principle, we do not be- lieve there is a difference be- tween consumer co-operation and consumer-producer dia- logue." Kissinger said. "In fact, we believe con- sumer consultation is a prere- quisite." CAREERS EXPERIENCED MEDICAL RECORDS PERSON To share duties in 60 bed accredited active treat- ment hospital.
