2 _ THI ITHMIDS! HIRMD Hbfwry 10, 1971 Moon heroes begin trip to isolation A B 0 A R D NEW ORLEANS (AP) Apollo H's moon her- oes, healthy and snug in a quar- antine trailer, steamed aboard this aircraft carrier toward Samoa today after safely com- man's third lunar land- ing mission. From Samoa they'll be flown Truckers agree to haul ivood EDSON (CP) Independent truckers hauling wood to Northwestern Pulp and Power Co. in Hinton, Tuesday agreed to a proposal which would allow them to continue ship- ments to the mill. The truckers have been pre- vented from making wood de- liveries by pickets at the mill. About 200 members of the In- ternational Woodworkers of America, Local 1-207, have been on strike there since Feb. 1 over a wage dispute. The company wUl open an in- terim wood-buying yard today near Hinton, 100 miles west of Edmonton, to receive wood from independent haulers, said Jim Clark, woodbinds division manager for the mill. Mr. Clark said the company would take legal action against the IWA if its members inter- fered with deliveries at the new yard. Bank bandit escapes with small loot CALGAHY armed robber escaped with a small of cash Tuesday from branch of the Canadian Im- perial Bank of Commerce. Police said the robber wrote a note in a deposit slip and while holding a -gun in his left hand presented the note to a teller. She gave him the money and be fled without firing a shot. Police were looking for a heavy set man in his early 20s with light ragged hair and a green army parka. The exact amount of money stolen had not been- deter- mined. o the Manned Spacecraft Centre near Houston, wriving early Friday. They'll get a of their families, then continue their isolation against jossible moon germs until Feb. Alan S'nepard, Edgar Mitchell and Stuart Roosa parachuted to a precision landing in the South Pacific Tuesday, climaxing a nine-day lunar voyage which scientists say will greatly enrich man's knowledge of the moon. The spacemen hit the tropic waters less than four miles from this helicopter carrier and quickly were hoisted aboard by helicopter. They were just sev- en-tenths of a mile from the landing target. SAILORS CHEER Hundreds of sailors cheered and snapped pictures, "Wel- come Apollo 14" banners un- furled, and a band played as the three smiling spacemen walked smartly from the copter to the quarantine trailer. On the remote possibility that they returned with harmful germs from the moon, Shep- ard, Mitchell and Roosa wore protective masks. The Canadian flying doctor, William Carpentier, who is to the quarantine van with them, reported that a preliminary medical examination showed them all to be in good health. Carpentier, a native of Ed- monton who was raised in Cowi- chan, B.C., is a flight surgeon attached to the National Aero- nautics and Space Administra- tion. He was the flight surgeon that went in quarantine with the first astronauts to land on the moon in July, 1969. Also in the trailer is R. H. Culbertson, a NASA engineer who maintains the van systems and helps with cooking and other chores. After retrieving the astro- nauts, the New Orleans set sail for Samoa, 880 miles to the north. When the ship is in heli- copter range, about noon EST Thursday, the spacemen will be flown to Pago Pago, where they'll transfer into a quaran- tine van aboard an air force transport plane. The aircraft will ferry them to Houston's Ellington Air Force Base, arriving.at a.m. Fri day. They will go to the Lunar Receiving Laboratory at the Manned Spacecraft Centre to complete the 21-day quarantine period that began the day Shep- ard and Mitchell left the moon The lunar rocks they gathered in the ancient Fra Mauro high ands will go into toother sec Uon of the laboratory, where scientists eagerly wait to start examination that will take months or years. Scientists believe the moon walkers may have gathered pri- mordial rocks dating back million years to the creation of ho moon. Scientists hope study of these rocks will unlock many secrets of the birth pangs of the moon, the earth and solar system. All were believed created at the same time in the convulsive coming together of space dust and rocks in a mammoth gas cloud. Following the successful splashdown, Shepard, Mitchell and Roosa received the praies of President Nixon and space agency officials. PROUD AND HAPPY1 'We're just so proud and happy to have you all the president told them by radi- ophone from Washington. He in- vited them and their wives to dinner at the White House. NLxon told 47-year-old Shep- ard, who made America's first manned space flight a decade ago: "You give aU of us older fellows hope." At a news conference in Hous- ton, Dr. George Low, acting ad- ministrator of NASA, said the success was especially gratify- ing because it wiped out the scars of the near-disaster of Apollo 13 last April when an ox- ygen tank explosion forced an abort near the moon. Apollo 14 carried out Apollo 13's mission, which was to gather pristine rocks at Fra Mauro.

Walter Baker, campaign man ager for A. B. R. (Bert) Lawr- ence, minister of financial and commercial affairs, said mem- bers of the legislature who sup- port Education Minister William Davis were responsible for the tactics. Mr. Baker would not disclose names or elaborate on the type of pressure being applied. "All I can say is that about 10 persons from various areas of the province have called me to tell me that pressure has been Proposal insurance given on unemployment criticism put on them to vote for Mr. he said. "I cannot break confidence with them by giving their names. Although the other officials declined to pin the blame, they agreed the tactics went beyond normal attempts to delegate persuasion. "A tremendous resentment is developing among delegates as a result of establishment pres- sure on some Mr. Baker said. "The pressure is being put on by cabinet ministers, back- benchers, etc., who support Mr. Davis." The education minister's cam TORONTO (CP) Labor Minister Bryce Mackasey's white paper on unemployment insurance is a welfare measure in disguise, says a University of Alberta professor. Writing for the March issue of Canadian Personnel and In- dustrial Relations Journal, Prof. J. Douglas Muir, who teaches business administration and commerce, says the proposal provides a form of guaranteed annual income "of a limited na- and gets aivay from the nsurance concept. "It provides a guarantee of up M> one year's unemployment jenefits. If a 'renewable' provi- sion were included we would lave a guaranteed annual in- there may be no come."

"Under the proposed plan he may contribute as little as (15.80 and draw out as much as The white paper fails to dis- .inguish between "those who are simply out of work and hose wlfo are unemployed and actively seeking other employ- ment." It also fails to distin- guish between "the committed year-round worker and the semi-committed seasonal worker." Because of this the system is open to abuse by "that large group of people who are con- stantly floating in and out of the work force and the part- time and casual workers who have no intention of becoming full-time members of our work force." "Under tha white paper pro- posal it is conceivable that someone could work for eight weeks during the pre-Christmas period and then be eligible for up to 51 weeks of benefits." Prof. Muir questions the source of funds to pay for the new cost tlie Canadian Manufacturers Association esti- mates at million a year. The Unemployment Insurance Commissidn estimates the cost at million a year when na- tional unemployment stands at six per cent, and million when it stands at seven per cent. While the contribution of a worker earning S100 a week would drop to 79 cents from a week, persons earning more than a are not now required to contrib- utfr-'VUl be paying an 'added tax' or a Prof. Muir said. The rest of the added cost has to come from the public purse, he notes. "Thus, either through the uni- versal coverage or through in- creased personal income and other taxes, the additional costs of Mr. Mackasey's proposal will be borne largely by the middle- income group. "This group seems to have been the target in most of the government's recent white pa- pers. It appears to be part of a long-run objective of narrowing the income spread in this coun- try." Urges hiring of more Indian steivardesses OTTAWA (CP) Rotund Transport Minister Don Ja- mieson was asked Tuesday to "lend his great weight" to persuading Air Canada to hire more native Indian girls as stewardesses. Mark Rose Valley West) told Mr. Ja- mieson in the Commons that he had not seen an In- dian stewardess on any Air Canada flight during exten- sive travelling over the last two weeks. The rn i n 1 s t e r, smiling weakly, was not given an opportunity to reply by Commons Speaker Lucien Lamoureaux. MONTREAL (CP) Mr. Jus- tice Roger Ouimet will rule Fri- day on motions to quash charges of seditious conspiracy against five Quebecere. The latest of the motions was presented in court Tuesday by teacher Charles Gagnon, one of the five being tried on charge of seditiously conspiring to overthrow the Canadian and Quebec governments by force. Gagnon contended the charge does not specify the crime he committed and therefore should be dismissed. Lawyer Robert Lemieux, labor leader Michel Chartrand, author Pierre Vallieres and Jicques Larue-Langlols, broadcasting producer, are being tried with Gagnon on the seditious conspiracy charge. Prosecutor Gabriel Lapointe told the court Tuesday that the charge is clear and legal. Fur- thermore, he said, the motion "is premature." He also disputed the conten- tion of the accused that they were illegally detained and ille- gally arraigned on the charge which is laid under the Criminal Code. Government decree of the War Measures Act, a eontestei point, is "conclusive proof of the validity of the act and the charges that flow from it, Mr Lapointe added. Lemieux and Vallieres presented motions Monday to have the charges quashed. The conspiracy allegedly tool place between Jan. and Oct. 16, 1970, the day the War Measures Act was invoked by the federal government. Seditious conspiracy is pun ishable by up to 14 years in prison. All five men are also Montreal, said Canadian Juris- prudence has established that charges must include "time, ilace and matter."

John Latimer, campaign man- ager for Mr. Davis, said he had received "nothing out of the or- dinary in the way of reports of pressure. "We asked everybody at the start of the campaign not to over-pressure delegates; but to ensure people's rights are re- spected." The comments came as the five managers of the major campaigns acknowledged that Mr Davis was being hard- pressed by Mines Minister Allan Lawrence in the bidding for del- egate support in voting Friday for a new leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservative party. There was agreement among the campaign managers repre- senting Mr. Davis, Allan Lawr- ence and' Provincial Secretary Robert Welch that the two lead- ers each have first-ballot com- mitments from about 600 of the Mr. Davis in front by a relatively slight margin. A total of 875 votes is needed for a candidate to win. The development of a neck- and-neck race between the two men has given added impetus to the campaigns of Mr. Welch, A. B R. Lawrence and Municipal Affairs Minister Darcy Me- Keough. The campaign managers for these three men see their candi- dates in the position of becom- ing acceptable alternatives in the event of a head-on clash be- tween Mr. Davis and Allan Lawrence. All five campaign managers agreed that the sixth candidate, Ottawa graduate student Robert Pharand, will be dropped after the first ballot. Although spokes- men for A. B. R.

Auxiliary hospital patients charge increase rapped EDMONTON (CP) Many patients in auxiliary hospitals will (ace a three-fold increase in charges because of changes in Aluerta hospital benefit reg- ulations, New Democratic Party Leader Brant Notley said today. "The amendment states that The TOWN CHEF LOCATED IN THE PROFESSIONAL BUILDING DOWNTOWN IETHDRIDGE Serves Afternoon Tea (or Coffee) EVERY AFTERNOON by The Dining Room. Fireplace auxiliary hospital patients are required to pay per day in advance for all days exceeding a length of 120 days Mr. Notley said in a news release. He also said that under the new regulations hospital insur- ance plans are not responsible for the additional cost. Before the regulations were changed on Nov. 1, 1970, he said, the charge was a day with insuring agencies paying one half of this fee. The maxi- mum a patient paid before No- vember was .yiGO a year but now was a year. "Surely a policy which Im- poses unnecessary financial strain on families is inconsis- tent with tlie government's re- peated rliQloric about human resource development." Mr. Notley said lie hoped op- position or government mem- bers cf lirgi.sliilure would ask the province to re-assess the changes.
