Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 - THE IETHBR1DGE HERALD - Tuesday, February 13, 1973 TORONTO (CP) - The federal department of agriculture is being asked to investigate reports that shipments of lettuce coming into Canada from the United States are contaminated by an insecticide. The request is from David Archer, president of the Ontario Federation of Labor (OPL), who said Monday the insecticide;-code named Monitor 4-has been barred from use on California lettuce by the state department of agriculture. At least 8,000 cases of contaminated lettuce stored in a San Francisco warehouse have been destroyed. But Mr. Archer said that the United Farmworkers union reports a shipment grown in Arizona and treated with the insecticide was shipped to Canada following the discovery early in December that the contamination was far beyond the human tolerance rate. Mr. Archer said the shipments were non-union since the growing area has been hit by a strike of about 100 agricultural workers. Welcome, beautiful men The arrival of the released American PoWs from Vietnam is imminent and service �families living on Clark Air Base, Philippin es, wait to welcome them on the flight line Monday with signs such as this which read s "Welcome Home Beautiful Men."

A renowned research institute has found a unique healing substance with the ability to shrink hemorrhoids painlessly. It relieves itching and discomfort in minutes and speeds up healing of the injured, inflamed tissues. One hemorrhoidal case history after another reported "very striking improvement." Pain was promptly and gently relieved .,. actual reduction or ietraction(shrinking)tookplace. And most important-this Improvement was maintained in cases where clinical observations were continued over a period of many months. Furthermore, these tests and observations were made on patients with a wide variety of hemorrhoidal conditions. All this was accomplished with a healing substance (Bio-Dyne) which quickly helps heal injured cells and stimulates growth of new tissue. Bio-Dyne is offered in ointment and suppository form called Preparation H. In addition to actually shrinking hemorrhoids, Preparation H lubricates and makes elimination less painful. It helps prevent infection which is a stated cause of hemorrhoids. Just ask your druggist for Preparation H Suppositories or Preparation H Ointment (with a special applicator). Satisfaction or your money refunded. Preparation Q course to the violation of my civil liberties and personal privacy." He sayd in a letter to the editor, published by The Journal, that Canadians have no protection from illegal investigations of their activities by their government. "There is no statute or law which forbids either Messrs. Adair, Leitch or Lougheed from ordering another investigation if they feel like it. Nor can I take either of these gentlemen into a court of law to redress what most Albertans clearly see as a justified grievance." The investigation of the three men was ordered by Attorney-general Merv Leitch, at the request of Al Adair, minister without portfolio, responsible for northern development. Mr. Adair requested background information of the men because of the numerous complaints they bad made about local government in their Slave Lake area and about policies of Premier Peter Lougheed's government. Mr. Adair and Mr. Leitch recently apologized publicly for using the RCMP to obtain such information. They said there was never any intention to get information which might be used to stifle criticism or h> timidate anyone. Plumbers get $9.28 per hour EDMONTON (CP) - Plumbers and pipefitters in northern Alberta have voted to accept a new three-year contract offering a $2-an-hour increase in basic wages. The new contract, ratified by 90 per cent of 1,500 plumbers and pipefitters attending a union meeting, will boost the basic hourly rate of 2,700 men to $7.95 an hour in the final year from $5.95 in the old pact that expired last March. The work week would remain unchanged at 37]/2 hours. Gross pay rate for plumbers, counting fringe benefits such as education, health and welfare, pension, statutory vacations and supplementary benefits, goes to $9.28 an hour, an increase of $2.38. Reckless drivers getting message Mr. Burger says in the letter the investigation makes it clear the' Alberta government does not wish to hear opposition voiced "and it is equally clear that it is prepared to take whatever steps are necessary to stifle such voices." Mr. Burger, 32, of Faust, Alta., is president of the provincial council of the New Democratic Party. Another man involved is Bruce Thomas, 24, publisher of the weekly Slave Lake Oiler, which has carried articles critical of government programs and policies. Mr. Thomas also said there had been profiteering in the town of Slave Lake by special groups and conflict of interest by town councillors. The third man is Floyd Gries-bach, 56, of Wabasca, who once served on the Drew royal commission on agriculture in Ontario. He and Mr. Burger wrote articles critical of the government for Mr. Thomas' newspaper. TIMEPIECE SAVED MEXICO CITY (AP) - A $40,000 watch said to have been owned by Emperor Maximilian of Mexico was recovered by police. They said the antique timepiece had been pawned for $32. EDMONTON (CP) - The province's practice of suspending irresponsible motorists for 30 days is abviously "getting the message across to 90 per cent of them that their driving habits must improve," Highways Minister Clarence Copi-thorne said today. "The effectiveness of the system is reflected in the fact that only 13 per cent of the suspended drivers were subjected to a second suspension and six per cent were subjected to a third suspension," the minister said in a statement. LICENCES SUSPENDED III January, one-month licence suspensions went to 367 drivers who accumulated 15 or more demerit points. Three-month suspensions were assessed 46 drivers who had accumulated 15 demerit points for a third time within two years. Points are assessed against drivers following conviction for offences under the Highway Traffic Act. The points are scaled from two to six depending on the seriousness of the offence. The minister also announced that 607 drivers were convicted in January for impaired driving. Six month suspensions were assessed 396 drivers while 149 received one-year suspensions and 62 received three-year suspensions. The one-year and three-year suspensions were given to drivers with previous convictions for impaired driving. "The government is very concerned with the large numbers of drivers being charged with impaired driving," Mr. Copi-thorne said.
