Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, December 18, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Dateline Alberta Edmonton boy missing Cattlemen Faster insurance claims Woman's EDMONTON (CP) City police are continuing to track down every lead in the dis- appearance of seven year old Shannon Burnham, miss- ing for 11 days. The boy, wearing a brown jacket and brown checked pants, ran away from his mother Dec. 7 while they were in the cateteria of the Provin- cial Museum. Insp. Dave Burns said Tues- day the police had investigated some leads but "nothing looking really promising" had turned up. During the first week Shannon was missing, police and groups of volunteers scoured the area around the museum but found no sign of the child. Man killed on icy road GIBBONS (CP) Heinrich Eichner, 52, of Gibbons has been identified as the person killed early Tuesday in an ac- cident on ice covered Highway 37 near here. Mr. Eichner's small van was in a collision with a semi trailer truck on the highway, about 20 miles north of Ed- monton. Freezing rain made driving treacherous and more than a dozen semi trailer trucks left the highway. Board willing to listen FORT McMURRAY (CP) The chairman of this town's governing board, Chuck Knight, says the board is prepared to meet with Allarco Developments Ltd. of Ed- monton and renegotiate terms for a shopping centre. Cameron Allard, executive vice president of the firm, said earlier he was willing to discuss plans for the square foot centre if the board was willing to listen. He previously announced cancellation of the million project, citing the board's indecisiveness, demands of town planners and inflation as the reasons. Patient found dead RED DEER (CP) Marilyn Dewar, 28, of Calgary, was found dead about a mile from the Deerhome Alberta School Hospital here, RCMP reported. Miss Dewar was a resident at the hospital for the mental- ly retarded. Hospital officials said Miss Dewar wandered off while a staff member was walking with her and two other residents on hospital grounds. Dr. S. J. Koegler, executive director of Deerhome, said it was not uncommon for residents to wander off, but this was the first time a death had resulted. An RCMP spokesman said Miss Dewar apparently died of exposure. Foul play was not suspected.

"Serving you over a quarter Century" 302 3rd Ave. South Phone 327-2805 Continued from Page 1 Says Dr. Leckie: "A new plant would compete for available cattle supplies. There would be a maximum competition price for cattle feeders, and within reason that is good for cattlemen." MPs Ken Hurlburt of Lethbridge and Mr. Hargrave agree. So does Chris Mills, secretary of the Canadian Cattlemen's Association. But both Mr. Hargrave and Mr. Mills feel the province has enough of the traditional type packing houses operations that slaughter animals and ship carcasses to market. Both said in independent interviews that a plant specializ- ing in some phase of the packing industry, such as supplying certain popular wholesale cuts of meat to retailers instead of whole carcasses, is needed in Alberta. "What we have really lacked in the past is a number of independent packers who are looking at a different type of market for their product and are often a little more aggressive in terms of Mr. Mills said. Whatever the Montreal packer does at his proposed plant, Mr. Hargrave predicts it will be tough going but that his Montreal connections will be his ace in the hole. "It is extremely difficult for an independent to become es- tablished and get into the total said the Medicine Hat MP. "When a new plant opens their very first customer they get for their first carcass of beef they've got to literally steal.. from another said Mr. Hargrave. The MP is a former president of the Canadian Cattlemen's Association and is a' director of Lakeside Cattle Co. Ltd., which has a large feedlot and a slaughter house at Brooks. "And this is where it becomes a very cut throat he said. The MP said any connection a western Palmont plant would have with the Montreal market would be important to its becoming successfully established. Mr. Mills thinks another plant in the area would make ab- solutely no difference in what the consumers pay for meat, but MP Hurlburt believes otherwise. Mr. Hurlburt thinks competition in the packing and in any market place tends to reduce retail prices. Coal firms pay in fines mining activity in unauthoriz- ed areas. Other companies fined un- der the act are Consolidation Coal Co., Peabody Coal Co., Mobil Oil Co., Knife River Coal Co. Criminal charges may be brought under the act's provisions against persons or companies violating the law. "We've come close but we haven't gotten into criminal charges said Berry. "Willful violations are often difficult to prove." Large strip-mining operations, such as those by Peabody, Western Energy, Knife River and Decker, are inspected by state officials every two weeks. Smaller operations are examined four times a year. U.S. not on UN board UNITED NATIONS (AP) The United States has refused to serve on the board of direc- tors of the United Nations emergency fund to aid the poorest countries of the world, underscoring Washington's earlier refusal to contribute to the fund. Clarence Ferguson of the U.S. delegation to the United Nations explained in a message to the General Assembly that his gov- ernment feels the 32-member board "should logically con- sist of those expecting to contribute or expecting to receive assistance from the special fund. "We would not have wished to create the impression through our participation that eventual U.S. support would have been likely." LONG HISTORY The written language with fehe longest continuous history is Chinese, the orthography of which has survived from 1400 BC so that some shell- and-bone characters (jiaguwen) of that date can be read today. HELENA, Mont. (AP) Coal companies operating in Montana, including a sub- sidiary of Montana Power Co., have paid in fines dur- ing the last 18 months and ac- tion is pending on seven other cases involving alleged viola- tion of the 1973 strip mining and reclamation act. Leo Berry, staff lawyer for the department of lands, said some of the pending cases likely will be settled later this month. Companies failing to comp- ly with the 1973 law can be fin- ed from to for a violation and the same amount for each day it con- tinues. Western Energy Co., wholly-owned subsidiary of Montana Power, paid for illegally drilling for nearly three months in areas where the company did not have a permit. MFC, which currently is seeking permission to construct two coal-fired generating plants at Colstrip, has pledged full compliance with all state laws if given the go-ahead on the project. Five companies have been fined for one violation but Decker Coal Co. has violated the law three times. C. C. McCall, administrator of the department's reclama- tion division, said Decker's violations involved illegal Workers' earnings up OTTAWA (CP) Average weekly earnings of more than four million workers rose by 13.8 per cent during the 12 months to October, Statistics Canada reported Tuesday. During the same period the consumer price index went up by 11.6 per cent. Since about mid-year wage gains have been running ahead of increases in the price index while in several prior months price inflation was greater. In October, there was a 1.8- per-cent rise in the average weekly wage and an increae of nine-tenths of one per cent in the price index. settlement laws sought EDMONTON (CP) Legislation to ensure faster settlement of insurance claims against impaired drivers is one of three recommendations made to the Alberta government by In- pact, a recently formed con- sumer referral agency. Included in a letter to Con- sumer Affairs. Minister Bob Dowling released Tuesday, the recommendations were made on the basis of some of the 400 consumer complaints and queries received by the agency in its first six weeks of operation. Inpact (Insurance People and Consumers Together) consists of six consumer and six insurance industry representatives and offers in- formation and advice on general insurance matters and serves as a mediator in disputes between consumers and the industry. The agency said that the victims in mishaps involving impaired drivers "often ex- perience a great many delays and frustration in getting their claims settled." "Often the insurance com- pany of the impaired driver will wait, or is legally entitled to wait, until a judgment is ob- tained thus causing con- siderable delay for the inno- cent party." No unfair practices disclosed EDMONTON (CP) A provincial audit, prompted by charges of unfair pricing pr- actices to avoid royalties, on Great Canadian Oil Sands (GCOS) Ltd.'s books has revealed no irregularities. Provincial Auditor Douglas Rogers today released his report which said: royalties on synthetic crude oil produced by the company have been correctly computed and assessed is shipping blends of Naptha, kerosene and gas oil, not shipping these products separately and sell- ing them at premium prices. company is not giving its parent, Sun Oil Ltd., a pric- ing preference. accounting practices used by the company are in accordance with generally accepted accounting prin- ciples. FIRST DEPARTMENT Benjamin Franklin formed the first volunteer fire depart- ment in Philadelphia in 1736. Legislation already introduced in Ontario had eliminated the problem, the agency said in urging Alberta to adopt similar measures. Inpact also called on the government and industry to press a review of possibly allowing drivers in "high ex- posure" areas to obtain com- prehensive insurance without glass coverage. "Under present regulations in Alberta, a motorist wishing to purchase comprehensive insurance must also have glass coverage. "This penalizes drivers in high exposure areas in northern and rural Alberta where cracked windshields are commonplace. Many con- sumers would like com- prehensive without glass coverage and the associated high premium." The agency urged the government and the industry to work together to ensure that consumers fully unders- tand the meaning of the "deductible" on their auto in- surance policy. What it meant was that after an accident, a con- sumer's insurance company was liable for damage less the deductible. For example, if the deductible was the consumer paid for the first damage while the in- PORTS OF ENTRY opening and closing times: Carway 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Chief Mountain, closed; Coutts open 24 hours; Del Bonita 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Kingsgate open 24 hours; Porthill Rykerts 7 a.m. to 2 a.m.; Rooseville 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. (Times Mountain Downtown 5th Street YOUR GIFT HEADQUARTERS for "The Man in your Life" Open Thurt A Frl.

Some insurance companies were willing to waive the deductible and pay the total amount as a goodwill gesture. The Inpact committee voic- ed its approval for this prac- tice and suggests that con- sumers question their agent about his company's deducti- ble policy when purchasing in- surance coverage. body found CALGARY (CP) Theresa Long Time Squirrel, 21, of the Blood Indian Reserve near Lethbridge, was identified Tuesday as the woman whose body was found on the bank of the Elbow River in the city Monday. Police said the woman died of alcohol poisoning and ex- posure. Foul play was not suspected. The dead woman is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Long Time Squirrel of the Blood Reserve. 1 "HOW'S YOUR JOIN THE YMCA TENDERFOOT FITNESS CLASSES Tues. or Thurs. p.m. Starts week of January 6 For further information Phone the YMCA 328-7771 Festive Season Pleasers A.
