Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Millionaire hermit dies in his favorite chair Thursday, December 17, 1770 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 21 JACKSONVTUS, Fla. (AP) An 80-year-old hermit who gave away million worth of land for the world to enjoy will be buried today in the wildlife preserve where he lived and died alone. William H- Browne HI, known as Mr. Willie to the neighbors who brought him his groceries, was found dead Monday. He was sitting in his favorite rock- ing chair, a book in his lap. When Browne was young his father gave him nearly 405 acres of wilderness along the south bank of the St. Johns Eiver and told him, "Don't let the hunters in here." Browne never did. "Nobody comes here, except the lax the old man once said, "and I think he's scared." Together, Browne and his brother built a house. They heated it with a wood stove read magazines and books by the light of kerosene lanterns, grew fresh vegetables in a 456 arrested under WMA OTTAWA (CP) UD until Monday, a total of 456 persons had been arrested under thfi War Measures Act and its re- placement legislation, Justice Minister John Turner told the Commons Wednesday. He told David Lewis (NDP- York South) that he had no breakdown to show how many had been arrested since the re- placement legislation went into effect Dec. 3. He said 408 of those arrested had been released, two had been re-arrested and 46 are being detained. "A few" were on bail. The War Measures Act was proclaimed Oct. 16 to deal with terrorism in Quebec following the kidnappings of British diplo- mat James Cross, now released, and Quebec Labor Minister Pierre Laporte, later killed by his abductors. WILLIAM BROWNE backyard garden and watched over the small animals and birds they loved. But after Browne's brother died in 1953, the bachelor gave away a few lush acres to young couples as homesteads and do- nated several more to the Campfire Girls. Last year he donated the re- maining 361 acres to the Nature Conservancy, a non-profit or- ganization, on condition it re- main in wild state and that he live there until his death. The land harbors meandering marsh and growths of Spanish moss-draped trees and magno- lia- It has heron rookeries and rare bald eagles make their nests in its secluded crannies. CANADIAN IMPORT FREDONIA, N.Y. (AP) The college bookstore at the State University College at Fre- donia sells red, white and blue bumper stickers bearing the United States flag and the let- ters U.S.A. On the back, in small letters, are three words: "Printed in Canada." Bill to aid co-operatives is given Senate approval OTTAWA (CP) An Idea re- jected by the Senate 63 years ago came closer to realization today with approval by the Se- nate banking and commerce committee of a bill to provide federal incorporation of co-oper- atives. A similar bill, put forward by the government of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and approved by the Commons, was defeated by one vote in the upper chamber in 1907. The bill would enable co-oper- atives operating in more than one province to obtain federal incorporation. Co operatives presently operating under the federal Corporations Act or a parliamentary charter would be able to re establish them- selves under the new bill as well. The committee was told by Breen Melvin, president of the Co-operative Union of Canada, that the legislation would per- mit reorganization of co-opera- tives on a multi provincial basis. Co-ops then be able to compete more effec- tively with corporations. Motor vehicles registration ratio unchanged OTTAWA (CP) Ten motor vehicles were registered for every 26 Canadians at the end of 1969, the same ratio as in the previous year, the Dominion Bu- reau of Statistics reported today. Over-all, motor vehicles regis- tered during 1969 increased 4.7 per cent over the previous year to Passenger cars ac- counted for of this total. Saskatchewan and British Col- umbia had the highest ratio of motor vehicles to population with 10 for every 20 people. B.C. and Ontario have the highest number of passenger cars in terras of population. There were 10 cars for every 26 persons in B.C. and 10 for every 30 people in Ontario. Russians bolster forces BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) The Soviet Union has increased Us troop strength and techni- cians in Egypt to more than say reliable reports reaching here from Cairo. Several thousand more Rus- sians have arrived in Egypt in recent weeks to extend and man an anti-aircraft missile system Previous estimates have pul the number of Russians in Egypt at no more than The Russians have been carrying out intensive taming of Egyptian crews to handle the complicated SAM ground-to-air missiles and their radar-guid anee system. Military analysts suggest the Russians may be concerned thai one of the secret SAM-3 missiles will fall into Israeli hands as did one of their latest radar units a year ago. The defence of many SAM-3 sites consequently is being en- trusted only to Soviet troops. A number of airfields from which Soviet pilots are flying jets on defensive missions also are guarded by Russian soldiers. STARTS DOWN EDMONTON (CP) The number of housing units startet in October, 1970, was down com- pared to October, 1969, the re- search branch of the city plan ning department reported "This trend has continued since the beginning of 1970 after a sharp rise in the summer o: the report said.

Parents afraid girl, 7. may die TORONTO (CP) A subur- ban Scarborough couple is afraid their seven-year-old daughter may die because she was given a prescription drug without their being warned that fatal blood diseases have been known to follow its use. Patricia Reid, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. A. Reid, was given the antibiotic cbloram- phenicol to combat a night- time cough last summer while the family was holidaying at an Ontario vacation resort. The drug was prescribed by a local doctor, and it was not until the family returned home that Mrs. Reid learned of the reported dangers of chloramphenical. The family doctor ordered immediate blood tests- She said the doctor told her the tests showed blood-cell ab- normalities. These could Furs stolen HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) A Neiman Marcus Co. delivery van carrying an estimated in merchandise, mostly furs, was stolen Tuesday as a deliveryman started making his rounds. Police were told the gift-laden truck included one de- livery valued at mean Die child had pinworms, common among children of that age in public schools. Further tests would be needed after pinworm treatment to determine if Patricia had con- tracted aplastic anemia, a rare and generally fatal dis- ease that has teen known to occur after use of chloram- phenicol. Aplastic anemia ie a disease in which bone marrow stops producing blood cells. An av- erage of more than three out of four persons wlvi get the disease die. The federal Food and Drug Directorate requires manufac- turers of the drug to include a warning that serious and even fatal blood diseases are known to occur after adminis- tration of the drug. The package from the man- ufacturer contains a warning pamphlet which says chlor- amphenicol should not be used for infections such as colds or viral infections of the throat, and that adequate blood studies must be made during treatment. The patient seldom sees tire warning because the pharma- cist repacks the drug in the dosage ordered. Mrs. Reid, who won't know for sure until next summer if her only child has contracted a fatal blood disease, said: "I want to warn every par- ent 1 can reach not to accept prescriptions for c h 1 o r a m- phenicol from their doctor."
