Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 21, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 _ TUB UTHBRinCiB HERAIB Mfniioy, Oecsntbsr 21, 1970 Taxi drivers NEW YORK (AP) Taxis rolled on the city's streets again today with the drivers anxious for the city council to act on a proposed fare increase that CHESTER BELL oiing news executive at 32 would pay for the higher wages they won in a 15-day strike. Some of the sink ing drivers voted three to two at a meeting Sunday to end their walkout against taxi fleet own- ers and the familiar yellow cabs began appearing shortly there- after. Terras of the pact were not disclosed but sources reported that the settlement involved a compromise that would reduce the commission share for new drivers while increasing fringe benefits for career cabbies. Although the taxi fleet owners agreed to help pay for the added benefits, the money for the package including higher wages must come from a fate increase, which only the city council can authorize. The drivers walked out Dec. 5 in an attempt to win a wage in- crease from the current S150 a week to parity with (he S174 lo ?J00 earned by city transit em- ployees. Nearly cabs that carry daily riders were made idle. Harry Van Arsdale, president of Local 3036 of the Taxi Driv- ers Union, said the new pact would bring them close to the level they sought.

R. A. Bosetti, head of a three-man committee doing the study, said here it will attempt to outline areas of post-second- ary education which can be provided by the province's six community colleges. Mr. Bosetti said in an inter- view that the study will look at what institutes of technology are doing, will study courses offered by agricultural and vo- cational colleges and view two- year programs offered in some universities.

Maheu, 53, a former FBI agent, had run Hughes's Ne- vada operations since 1966 under what he says was a per- sonal agreement with the bil- lionaire. His refusal to accept dis- missal touched off a two-week court battle that ended Saturday when Judge Howard Babcock of the U.S. district court ruled in favor of the tool company direc- tors. The judge held that variously reported in the Baha- mas and in Los given the directors power to fire Maheu, and dismissed a tempo- rary restraining order Maheu had obtained against them.

"Canada has lost one of her most talented who in a single lifetime contributed (he equivalent of several full careers."

Heath says bombing- is o justifiable WASHINGTON (AP) M U.S. troops need protection while withdrawing from South Vietnam, then bombing of the North would be justifiable, says Prime Minister Heath. As for the likelihood of re- newed bombing, Heath said President Nixon "is carrying out an honorable withdrawal and if in this process there is difficulty from North Vietnam, then he is bound to take action. He must do this to protect his forces." The British prime minister made his comments on the CBS television-radio program, Face the Nation. The interview was taped last week for showing Sunday. The U.S. withdrawal from South Vietnam must be orderly. Heath added. If it was in haste, "such a pullout would under- mine confidence in the United States elsewhere" in Europe and Asia.
