Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 _ THF. IFtHBRIDGB HERALD _ Monday, Dcecmlmt 37, 1971 Holiday roundup the shiverin! was done by Albertans lly THE CANADIAN PRKSS The holiday wefktnd for some Canadians was a time for shiv- ering t record cold tempera- complaining about a 5 Christmas, phoning lly. quarrelling, a n d thundc ing downtown in droves for Boxing Day bargains. Prime Minister and Mrs. Pierre Trudeau became the par- ents of a six-pound nine-ounce son Christmas night. Six Air Canada personnel spent part cf the holiday in Cuba following a successful hi- jacking of a Thunder Bay-to-To- ronto ffight to Havana by a man with a grenade and a pistol. Motorists surpassed the pre- dictions of the Canada Safety Council. Forty-six persons had died on roads by midnight Sun- cay night, edging past the coun- cil's prediction of 45 deaths for the period from Friday night to midnight Tuesday night. The death tally included one of the worst Christmas acci- dents in Ontario's history. Eight persons from two families died in a head-on collision Christmas night on an icy highway near the southwestern Ontario com- munity of Simcoe. TEMPERATURES LOW Most of the shivering was done in Alberta as record low temperatures were observed at 13 Alberta municipalities. The residents of Peace River munched not turkey Christmas Day while outside it was 45 de- grees below zero. Fort Chipewyan also had tem- peratures of around 45 below. Uranium City, barkened Christmas Day with 42-below weather. i The Honors Pass through the Rocky Mountains of British Col- umhiii was dosed several limes by snow slides, choking off the main highway artery linking the West Co'ast with the rest cf Can- ada. But in Toronto, the weather was mild, and the only snow came from aerosol cans for Christmas trees and from nra- chines which coaled suburban slopes for impatient holiday I skiers. A cold spell accompanied by i heavy snowfalls also disrupted holiday travel plans in British Columbia, where 11 communi- ties reported record low tera- pastures overnight some dating back to Cold- j est spot in the province was Qucsnel, 42K miles north of Van- i couvcr, where the mercury dropped to 40 below de- grees colder than the previous record. In the Fraser Valley, cast of Vancouver, pilot cars were used S' a t u r d a y to guide traffic i through drifting snow. Vancou- ver itself had one of its rare I white Christmases, with the i third major snowfall of the year continuing throughout Christ- mas Day. Near Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island, about 3.000 persons turned out in 26-degree temper- atures to watch as at least 200 hardy souls dashed into the icy waters of Georgia Strait for the annual Boxing Day swim. The swimmers got no more than SO feet from shore. A small group of Indians maintained a lonely vigil on the top floor of the deserted 27-sto- rey CN Tower in Edmonton. The 12 are continuing a sit-in in the office of the Indian affairs department to support demands for tetter living conditions and educational policies on the Cold Lake reserve in northeastern Alberta. All of 14 minimum-security prisoners from the Saskatche- wan penitentiary farm in Prince Albert who got special Christmas leave returned at midnight Sat- urday but two of 60 maximum- security prisoners did not show up at the deadline. One is still at large. The unseasonably warm weather brought out the long distance telephone callers. Bell Canada reported delays of up to six hours Christmas Day as about Ontario di- alers competed for transatlantic telephone lines to overseas rela- tives. At times, a Bell spokesman said, operators just gave up and quit accepting all but emer- gency calls because of the jam of uncompleted calls. In Edmonton, people made a record long-distance tele- phone calls Christmas Day, but took time out from dialling to stage a remarkable number of family spats. Police said they responded to three times the normal number of complaints about family dis- putes. ________ Edward, Andrew stole the show LONDON (CP) Princes An- drew and Edward stole the show Saturday as the Queen broadcast her televised Christ- mas Day message to the Com- monwealth from Buckingham Pala.ce. Her yoimgest sons, Andrew, 11, and Edward 7 helped her leaf through the royal family album. Edward looked at pictures of King George VI, his grand- father, in uniforms of Britain's three fighting services during the Second World War. "It's the navy, the army and I the air he blurted. A picture of a worn jn dressed fashionably in First World War style brought a forthright com- ment from uninhibited Edward: "Nasty." VIEW FAMILY ALBUMS The Queen led her sons through an informal viewing of family albums of five genera- tions. When she showed a photo- graph of the Football Assoda- .ion final between Bolton and Manchester in 1926 and told them Uiis was the first time their father. Prince Philip, had gone to a soccer final, Prince Andrew turned all-British boy. "Bolton Wanderers are now In the Second he said. The boys didn't score per- fcctly on all the family pictures. Andrew did spot a famous pic- ture of his mother changing a lire during the Second World War while she served in the Auxiliary Training Service. In her formal message, the Queen emphasized the import- ance of moral values over tech- nological achievements. She said'that if parents realized the importance of the values they pass on to their children, "then our contribution as parents will be just as important as any made by scientists and engi- neers." FAMILY DAY Queen Elizabeth spends some time with two of her sons, Prince Andrew, 11, left, and Prince Edward, 7, p rior to her Christmas broadcast.___________ JANUARY FUR SAL STARTS TOMORROW, DEC. 28th WITH OUTSTANDING SAVINGS CANADIAN FU PARAMOUNT THEATRE BUILDING 4th AVE.

A survey by The Canadian t I for two children i DETROIT (CP) Doctors i Children's Hospital here say they have successfully trans- planted a pair of kidneys from a dead Windsor baby to two De- j trcit children. i The kidneys came from 11- month-old Kathleen Beau- champ, who died Thursday, and for Douglas and Jean, the young parents of Kathleen, it was a Christmas where strength was to result from tragedy be- cause of their decision. Doctors in Windsor concluded that Kathleen would die from injuries suffered Tuesday when she fell from a parked car. The parents were asked by two doctors from Detroit anc Windsor if they would consider giving permission to give kid cys from their daughter for ansplants. Mr. Beau champ, 26, re larked then to Dr. Yvan Silva Wayne State University tha we have other children a onie. If you really have to ait, we'll wait.
