Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, February 4, 1f74 THE LITHBHIDOE HERALD Cancer claims energetic waiter SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Larry E. Lewis, a 106-year-old former waiter who liked to run almost seven miles each morning, died Friday night "apparently of liver cancer. Born in 1867 of Jewish immigrant parents, Lewis astounded his doctors for many years with his 4 a.m. runs around Golden Gate Park. He also liked to cel- ebrate his birthdays with 100- yard dashes, the latest of which he finished in 17.3 seconds three years ago. Until recently he travelled as a goodwill ambassador for Western Girl Inc., a temporary help employment agency. He had taken that job because he was bored several weeks after retiring at age 105 as a waiter at the St. Francis Hotel. The first of 13 of whom he did not smoke cigarettes or drink alcoholic beverages, but said he drank three gallons of water and 12 ounces of orange juice a day He also skipped fried foods, pastries and white bread, preferring rye and whole wheat. He said he learned his life- style of health and longevity from Navajo Indians he grew up with in Arizona. Lewis left no survivors. His second wife, whom he married when he was 86, died two years ago. Funeral arrangements are pending. Diplomat married black girl JOHANNESBURG (Keu- ter) A newspaper quotes former South African diplomat Melvyn Drummond as saying he resigned from his country's United Nations mission in New York last year and married a black West Indian three days later. The Rand Daily Mail reports that Drummond, who is white, said in an interview he married Diana Ramrattan of Trinidad, at an interfaith chapel at the UN on Aug. 12 after resigning as secretary to the South African mission. The paper says Drummond, now working in London, de- scribed South, Africa's apartheid policy as "anachronistic" and said he decided several months before leaving the mission he would never return to the re- public because of its policies.

Population decline seen for Edmonton EDMONTON (CP) Population of the will start declining in the next few years if present social and economic trends continue, a University of Alberta census expert said Friday. "If the trend continues, in the next few years we will see a drop in terms of our said Prof. Wayne McVey, a member of the university's population laboratory which assisted in Edmonton's 1973 census. Migration out of city cores to suburban communities has been observed in Canadian, American and European cities for years now, Prof. McVey said. He wasn't really surprised that the 1973 count showed only a -02-per-cent increase in population, 835 persons more than the 1972 total of The city's annual population growth rate has been levelling off sharply for about the last five years. The annual increase has slipped from a high of 4.2 per cent increase in 1968 to 1.21 per cent in 1972. Prof. McVey was hesitant to describe the present-situation as zero population growth. The reasons are fairly clear, he adds. Land values are higher in the city than in surrounding communities. Families looking for cheaper homes are also attracted to the open countryside. WASHINGTON (AP) President Nixon today presented his record billion budget for fiscal 1975 but pledged to exceed it if the energy crisis throws too many Americans out of work. Unlike his hard-nosed budget of a year ago in which dozens of programs were targets for extinction or reduction, Nixon fastened his attention on the danger of a recession induced by the fuel shortage. "The president will not tolerate a Deputy Budget Director Frederic Malek told reporters. "If it means busting the budget, he will bust the budget to keep people from losing their jobs." The budget shows a deficit of billion, about double the deficit for the current financial year. It shows an all- time high defence budget of billion, and an over-all spending increase of billion. For the first time in history, federal spending for income security for needy primarily Social Security, public assistance and health tops billion, a jump of about billion over fiscal 1974. Nixon proposed no new taxes, except for the windfall- profits levy he offered in December to keep the oil companies from profiteering on the energy crisis. It would bring in billion. As he has announced before, Nixon proposed billion for energy research to find new sources of fuel; new funds for mass-transit systems, wrapped in a special revenue- sharing program, and a large increase in aid to college students. Nixon said his budget, which amounts to almost for every man, woman and child in the U.S. walks a tightrope of moderate economic restraint. "In the face of economic un- certainty, my budget recom- mendations provide for a fiscal policy that would support high employment while restraining he said. His budget officials left the door open for increasing Open new B.C. bank EDMONTON (CP) The Bank of British Columbia has opened its second branch 4n hopes of developing "a western money says Eric Allan, the bank's vice- president for Alberta. "In the past, all short-term money has gone east, but we hope to bring it back." The bank opened its first branch in Edmonton Thur- sday It already has one branch in Calgary and expects to open another branch in that city in March. spending or cutting taxes to create jobs lost through the energy crisis. The standby spending pro- gratn might include accelerated federal construction or procurement, public-service jobs in high jobless areas, or even higher Social Security benefits, Malek said. Nixon's new spending pro- gram is greatly affected by in- flation, some of it in higher fuel costs to the government. Wage and price increases were the principal factor in a proposed boost in the defence budget; increased health costs helped push up the spending for health by billion; federal tax revenues increased largely because of inflation.

The 41 members of the committee, called the environmental management control policy committee, gave the report to the GVRD five' months ago, but when the Regional District took no action, three committee members made it public Friday. The report notes that more than half of the B.C. population is concentrated on the lower mainland, which has less than .05 per cent of the land, and says the GVRD should take steps to limit population growth. The provincial government cannot be expected to limit population because most of the land in the province is practically empty, the report says. 26" Super Solarcolor TV FMJWM ADMIRAL'S Track CartiUQ.
