Police Chief Ralph Michelson said Norman Marshall Camp- bell, 52, employed as a chart- ered accountant in Medicine Hat, was being sought on a fed- eral warrant for parole viola- tion. Campbell was sentenced to life imprisonment at Calgary in 1961 after he pleaded guilty to a charge of non-capital murder. The murder charge resulted from the knife slaying of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Treend in their Calgary home Aug. 8 that year. On recommendation of the Al- berta Parole Board, Campbell was paroled in 1971 when he went to work in Medicine Hat. In the telephone interview Mr Spiro said he had no com- ment, but added he was afraid the release of the story could have harmful repercussions on parole policy in the province. The car Campbell rented in Lethbridge was recovered in Vancouver Feb. 11. A Medicine Hat RCMP offi- cial said Campbell had attempt- ed to enter the United States wice; once at the Coutts-Swect Jrass b or d e r crossing and again at King's Bridge in B.C. ie was turned back both times. A Vancouver police official said he had no information about Campbell, but added it would be quite easy for a per- The warrant issued by G. P.

Calgary Deputy Police Chief Gordon Gilkes said he had heard a report Campbell was currently in California. He did not indicate the source of his information. An FBI special agent in Butte, Montana, said because the murder had taken place in Canada the FBI could not issue a warrant, but an RCMP in- vestigation would be aided in any way possible. If apprehended, Campbell could be returned to Canada to finish his life-term in penitenti- ary.___________ Friendship Centre is broke Quick action by six Alberta Centres Tuesday broke Lethbridge Friendship Centre from closing its doors this morning. Friendship centre directors attending the annual Alberta Native Friendship Centre So- ciety meeting in Red Deer, will attempt to squeeze enough funds from their remaining budgets to keep the centre here open until the new fiscal year begins1 in April. Although financially hard- pressed themselves, the direc- tors adopted a "united we stand, divided we fall" attitude to save the centre here. Veronica Scott, director of the Lethbridge Centre since November, expressed disap- pointment at the lack of sup- port here for the centre. Its fi- nancial plight had been well- advertised, but community re- sponse was non-existant, she said. It was also decided at the Red Deer meet that in Apri the Lethbridge centre will be alloted the entire bud- get requested for the coming fiscal year. The provincial organization will also contact Lellibridge community agencies, including the United Appeal, to obtain temporary financial support for tho centre. The money will be needed until April when the centre's Campaign suggested for tourism An Increased promotional campaign has been suggested to beef up the chances of the southern trans Canada high- way through Lethbridge at- tracting more Alberta motor travellers. In a letter lo chambers of commerce and other promotion groups along the route between Medicine Hat and Hope, B.C., Frank Smith, manager of the Travel and Convention As- sociation of Southern Alberta said the southern route is los- ing the battle for visitors to the highways through Calgary and Edmonton. A reply from the Trail office of the Kootenay Boundary Chambers of Commerce said "our only course of action at this time is to step no our pro- motion program of Highway 3 both on the Prairies as well as the Vancouver Okanagan area." The letter from southeastern B.C. region co ordinator George Barnslcy said an in- crease in promotion budget is under consideration. By RIC SWIIIAUT Staff Writer TABER The week of Feb. 21 may prove to be the period to make or break the mil- lion hog slaughtering plant pro- posed for southern Alberta, ac- cording to the principals of the project. A special meeting between Alberta Agriculture Minister Dr. Hugh Horner and Fernardo Ricafort, director of North American Integrated Food Pro- cessors Co. Ltd., will be held next week in Dr. Homer's of- fice in Edmonton. Mr. Hicafort has beer, trying lo establish a plant to till and process Wfl.OOO hogs yearly for a speciality market in Soulh- ea't Asia, particularly Japan. Dr. Glen Purncll. deputy minister of agriculture, told 50 j agribusinessmen at a farm i business information short course here Tuesday that three primary areas will be dis- cussed "by the men. _ He said the financial soundness of the proposal must be demonstrated by the princi- pals of the plan. The plant must be estab- lished by regulations mude over the years by producer ex- perience. The principals should be able lo assure the producers 2nd the government that HID 100 PAIR ONLY LEVIS BELL BOTTOM JEANS Cream color. Sizes 28 to 38. Regular 10.00.

More stringent enforcement of the store closing bylaw has been called for by Alderman Vaughan Hcmbroff. Recent violations of the by- law, by three automobile deal- erships; prompted Aid. Hem- broft to ask the city solicitor what tha city is doing to hold local businesses to the terms of the bylaw. City solicitor John Hammond said he has teen relying on Hie various businesses to supervise themselves according to the bylaw. If a violation is detected, usually through adv e r tisc- ments publishing late hours for a sale, tho city solicitor calls the responsible party and asks if h is aware of the re- i stricted hours. So far, Mr. Hammond said. the proprietor lias not been aware lie was violating the bylaw. For example, one car dealer j who held a sale at the Exhibi- tion Pavilion last week during I the evenings from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.. told Mr. Hammond he though', moving out to the pa- vilion exempted him from the terms of the bylaw. j Sir. Hammond said the deal- er has since said he would j "co operate" and comply with i the bylaw. The bylaw restricts the hours I for car "dealerships to between) 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. weekdays from 3 a.m. to G p.m. Satur- days. The businesses in {own have not taken advantage of a clause in the bylaw which allows them lo remain open past the desig- nated three days psr year, Mr. Hammond said. This provision was made by city council to accommodate businesses which have special sales throughout the year. Applications to slay open later can be made at the in- spection and development de- partment at city hall. I Mount Royal i has new campus Mount Royal College, in Cal- gary is planning a souvenir yearbook to commemorate its years on the old 7th Ave. S.W. campus. The college is moving to new facilities in Lincoln Park. The special yearbook will contain pictures -and written material dating back lo the col- lege's opening in 1910. In addition to seeking dona- tions of pictures and materials from the alumni, the college is also seeking names of former students in order to form an alumni association. The deadline for yearbook orders is March 22. whole operation is sound (in- cluding market Dr. Piirnel! once these dusstions been cleared, the ro'.s of the Government will be to determine'whether finan- cial assistance is justified. Mr. RicKi'iir! said if the con- ditions established with Dr. Horner are equitable, then ho will push the project forward. He has asked that the author- ities from ths lawns and cities affected in the negotiations Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Bow Island and Tabor be present at the meeting to help put across the reaction of pro- ducers in southern Alberta. Mr. Pica fort said he was ex- tremely pleased with the situa- tion. He said there appeared to be some change in the atmosphere surround jig the controversy, making the rallonk for estab- lishment of the plant more en- t couracing.
