Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Siturday, Ftbruiry 15, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 Conservatives retaliate against tax accusations Lutheran council in trouble WINNIPEG The Lutheran Council in Canada is racing a financial problem which may result in curtail- ment of its activities next year unless it is resolved, the annual meeting was told this weeli. The Lutheran souri Synod, with severe financial difficulties of its own, advised the council its grant for 1975 likely will be instead of the re- quested amount of The Evangelical Lutheran. Church of Canada and the Lu- theran Church in America- Canada Section will meet their allocations of and respectively toward the council's operating budget of The council Indicated its re- serve fund will permit con- tinuance of its regular program for 1975, but instructed the executive to study the situation and make recommendations about future financing to a special council meeting in September. Rev. Roger Nostbakken, professor at Lutheran Theological Seminary in Saskatoon, was elected presi- dent succeeding Dr. John M. Zimmerman of Toronto who has served the maximum three one-year terms. Rev. Norman Berner of 'Kitchener was elected vice- president and John Schienbein of Toronto secretary. Edward Gelhorn of Winnipeg was re- elected treasurer. The meeting was told the Lutheran World Federation's commission on church co- operation has accepted an in- vitation to hold its 1976 meeting in Canada. Saskatoon was chosen as the site. Members clean up Provincial Treasurer Gordon Miniely, labor Minister Bert Hpho! and Attorney-General Merv Leitch, left to right, are all smiles as they pack up their belongings following announcement in the legislature Friday that Albertans will go to the polls March 26. In the background are Progressive Conservative back-benchers. Ontario's seat-belt campaign criticized OTTAWA (CP) The On- tario government is "flying in the face of all the ac- cumulated knowledge" with its public education blitz to convince motorists to wear seatbelts, the Con- sumers' Association of Canada (CAC) says. Similar campaigns based on media advertising already are proven failures in the U.S. and Britain, and should not be used to replace mandatory belt-use laws, says Ronald Cohen, a member of the CAC national executive. The Ontario government promised seat-belt laws in the throne speech in March, 1974, but subsequently backed down. On Jan. 14, provincial Transport Minister John Rhodes announced that an education program, to cost this year, would be launched. The CAC estimates between and lives and million might be saved an- in laws were in place to require seat-belt use. The Ontario decision particularly disappointing to the CAC, and to federal safety officials, because the ex- pected reduction in traffic fatalities might have persuad- ed other provinces to follow suit with mandatory belt-use legislation. The only province that has actually passed belt-use laws is Nova Scotia, but personal opposition to the legislation by Premier Gerald Regan has prevented the passing of regu- lations that would put the law into effect, federal officials say. Meanwhile, the federal transport department's motor vehicle safety branch is putting into develop- ing an education program, complete with television, radio and newspaper ads. It is to start testing the ads next week. An advertising pack- age promoting the use of belts will be put together for use by the provinces, and for possible national distribution by the transport department itself, a spokesman says. Mr. Cohen, who also is director of the Centre for Public Interest Law in Montreal and a professor of consumer law at McGill University, remains skeptical about the programs. 'He sup- ports consumer education on the topic, but not as a replace- ment for legislation. Reporting in the February issue of Canadian Consumer magazine, Mr. Cohen says the U.S. and British experiences prove public education simply doesn't work. Mr. Cohen is skeptical about Mr. Rhodes' claim there was too much public opposition to mandatory belt-use laws at this time. Support for belt legislation came from broadly-based groups like the CAC, the Cana- dian Automobile Association and the Canada Safety Coun- cil, he says. The Ontario government campaign will use the same type of media advertising, printed material and signs as did the British and U.S. educa- tion programs, and there also will be packaged programs for elementary schools and a 27-minute film. It will build up slowly to parallel the growth in the ac- cident rate, which historically slows between January and midMarch then increases to a peak in late March, a provin- cial transportation depart- ment spokesman said.

Get a jump on tomorrow at the SOUTHERN ALBERTA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY 1301 -16 Avtnut H.W., Calgary T2MOL4 WASHINGTON (AP) -The Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) said Friday that haz- ardous cargo has been remov- ed from more than 50 passenger aircraft in the United States since its em- bargo on hazardous materials went into effect Feb. 1. At the same time, the association accused the U.S. transportation department of making a "complete mockery of safety" by trying to put pressure on airlines to violate the pilot's embargo. The association announced last month that its members would not accept after Feb. 1 any hazardous cargo other than radioactive and biological shipments destined for medical use, dry ice and magnetic materials for tran- sportation on passenger- carrying aircraft. It warned that its pilots would refuse to fly passenger aircraft loaded with such materials unless the airline removed the cargo. There have been some delays because of pilot's ordering the cargo removed, the association said, but the delays have been small. Although the embargo applies only to U.S. domestic and international flights whose pilots are represented by the association, two inter- national carriers also have joined in the embargo effort, ALPA said Friday. It said Japan Air Lines and British Airlines also were embargo- ing hazardous cargo on passenger jets.
