Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 11, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta TUMdiy, Ftbru.ry 11, THE LETHBHIDGE HERALD 13 Troubles pile up for Playboy boss CHICAGO (AP) The boss is taking a 25-per-cent cut in pay. Coffee that used to be free for employees now costs a dime. The price of soft drinks has doubled. These economic measures are tak- ing place within the lion Playboy empire of Hugh Hefner. Already troubled by investi- gations of alleged drug use at liis mansions, Hefner received more bad news this weekend as the latest Playboy Enter- prises Inc. earnings report was issued. It showed a second-quarter loss of before taxes, down from a profit for the same period the previous year. Most of the firm's activities were affected by the lower earnings, but its network of hotels, clubs and casinos suf- fered the most. The result: implementation of strict economy measures recommended by a team of ef- ficiency experts aimed at sav- ing million a year. Hefner's annual salary will be reduced to from HUGH HEFNER Ending free coffee for employees at its headquarters will save about Hundreds of exotic plants are gone from the headquar- ters and so are some high- priced employees. There will be fewer parties with less-ex- travagant spreads at the man- sions in Chicago and Los Angeles. JAYCEES SELECT KILLER AS OUTSTANDING MAN WARREN, Mich. (AP) In a controversial Michigan Jaycees have selected a convicted murderer as one of the state's five outstanding young men for 1974. Lloyd Tisi. 31, was taken under guard from his prison cell to the Jaycees annual dinner to receive the award for his work with the blind. Tisi has been at the Southern Michigan prison in Jack- son since he was convicted in October, 1967, of the second- degree murder of Judy Ann Phares, 20. Tisi was arrested less than eight hours after the woman's body was found April in her Warren home. She had been stabbed to death. While in prison, Tisi began studying braille. He trans- lated a few short items and was paid one cent a page for the translations, making about a month. Soon, however, he said his translation work became more important than just extra cash. During his con- finement, Tisi has translated more than pages of printed material into braille for use by the blind through- out the United States. "He did what experts thought was impossible: he entered their world of darkness to give them said the Jaycees prison chapter which nominated him for the award: A controversy has arisen over whether the state Jay- cees knew of Tisi's criminal status when he was selected. "There was nothing on Tisi's nomination form to in- dicate he was serving time at Southern Michigan prison in said Tom Hitter, president of the state Jaycees organization. However, Gary Foote, state Jaycees executive direc- tor, said that there was a notation of Tisi's criminal record on the form that was submitted by the prison's Jaycees chapter to enter him in the competition. Indians U.S. frets about plant minus heat at Ottawa OTTAWA (CP) Indians occupying a federal building here will have to go without heat and it's their own fault, a National Capital Commission (NCC) spokesman said Mon- day. NCC communications direc- tor Dave Mclntosh said the occupants had turned off the water conduit to the boilers that heat the building, forcing the NCC to turn off the boilers. Apparently some radiators burst when the water in them froze in recent sub-zero tem- peratures because of broken windows in the building. The Indians, members of the Native Peoples' Caravan involved in a violent demonstration on Parliament Hill Sept. 30, occupied the un- used Carbide Mills building located on an island in the Ot- tawa River a few blocks from the Hill prior to the demonstration. north of Montana border WASHINGTON (CP) The United States state depart- ment expressed "concern" Monday about a proposed coal-fired power plant near Saskatchewan's border with Montana and asked for a meeting with Canadian of- ficials to discuss the project, 'informants said: Precise details of a diplo- matic note handed over to officials of the Canadian Em- bassy here were not known. Embassy officials declined to comment on it. But the sources said the U.S. indicated that it fears potentially serious problems from the project, including the possibility of pollution of air and water and a depletion of water resources used, by Montana cattle raisers. In addition, a senior official of the International Joint Commission (IJO reported that the commission was starting to gather information about the project, to deter- mine whether to invoke its standing mandate to study cross-border air-pollution problems between Canada and the U.S. The Saskatchewan govern- ment has nearly completed an inquiry into the project with an initial phase production of kilowatts of electricity and ultimate potential described as being 1.2-million kilowatts. The plant would involve creating a reser- voir only two miles north of the Montana border on the tiny Enst Poplar River, which flows south from Saskatchewan into the cattle- raising flatlands of Montana before joining with the Missouri River. Leo Kristjanson, head of the economics department at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon and chairman of the provincial government's inquiry, recently said studies to date showed that U.S. residents had nothing to fear from the project. As far as Montana is con- cerned, he said, "the effect is almost zero-some decrease in the flows of the East Poplar River." However, U.S. officials are .known to have been anxious for some time about the potential for damage to air and water quality from the plant's fly ash. At its peak, the plant would consume about seven million tons of coal annually, with special anti-pollution equip- ment installed in 300-foot-high smokestacks.
