Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta News in brief Heart attack kills TV star HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Comedian Wally Cox, the meek, bespectacled Mr. Peepers on a popular television series in the early 1950s, was found dead of a heart attack in his home Thursday. He was 48. Cox was found sprawled on his bed about 7:30 a.m. by his wife, Patricia. After an autopsy, county coroner Dr. Thomas Noguchi said death was due to a coronary occlusion, a heart malfunction. Dock foremen plan walkout VANCOUVER (CP) - British Columbia docks could be in chaos today as dock foremen said late Thursday night they plan to walk off their jobs over denial of retroactive pay. Barney Olver, president of the Ship and Dock Foremen Local 514, an uncertified affiliate of the International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union, said study sessions for foremen in Vancouver and Victoria would begin at 10 a.m. today. The dispute revolves around a recently-concluded wage settlement under which longshoremen, including casual laborers, received five months of retroactive pay. Mr. Oliver said foremen have just discovered they are not included in this agreement. He said foremen were not certified as a union because employers said they were part of management. Life sentence appealed MONTREAL (CP) - Lawyer Robert La Haye filed an appeal Thursday against the life sentence imposed on Gilles Eccles for manslaughter in the Blue Bird nightclub fire in September. Mr. La Haye said in his appeal that the sentence was "exaggerated, excessive, inopportune and disproportionate" to Eccles' participation in setting the fire. Eccles was sentenced Jan. 29 after pleading guilty to manslaughter in the death of one of 37 persons who died in the fire. Jean-Marc Boutin and James O'Brien, were also sentenced to life imprisonment when they pleaded guilty to murder. Lengthy life ends at 105 BURLINGTON, Ont.

Whelan's absence irks MPs Tories disrupt food costs inquiry. OTTAWA (CP) - Two Conservative MPs walked out of a special Commons inquiry into rising food costs today complaining that the government holds the committee's work in contempt. Allan Lawrence (PC-Northumberland-Durham) and James McGrath (PC-St. John's East) stormed out shortly after receiving word that Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan would not make a scheduled appear- ance before the 25-member group. Mr. Whelan was attending a cabinet meeting. Outside the committee, Mr. Lawrence said he was furious over Mr. Whelan's absence. It showed the "contempt the government has for the committee." Mr. McGrath accused the government of "stalling for time," saying that it did not have the courage to imoose controls on rising food costs. Shortly before the two left, the commitee voted to continue its hearings with Mr. Whelan's deputy minister, Syd Williams. Mr. Lawrence said it was pointless to carry on without the minister because Mr. Williams could not answer questions concerning policy. MPs that remained, however, also expressed displeasure over what Alf Gleave (NDP-Saska-toon-Biggar) described as the "government's negative attitude toward the committee." Astrologers trying to pick date of ceasefire in Laos VIENTIANE (AP) - Peace in Laos is likely in the next two days if the stars are right.

She said he should "wear it as long as you Davis is accused of shirking duties OTTAWA (CP) - Environment Minister Jack Davis was caught in a Commons crossfire Thursday, alternately accused of shirking his two main responsibilities-the environment and fisheries. While some opposition MPs complained the minister was riot using his legal powers to fight pollution, Atlantic-area Conservatives said he neglects fisheries in favor of environmental issues. Mr. Davis responded with a defence of the government's domestic and international actions to protect both the environment and the fishing industry. The dispute erupted during Commons study of the government's request for $1.29 billion in supplementary funds to cover its expenses up to March 31. The day began on a historical note, as the Canadian flag was displayed for the first time in the House. The initiative, approved unanimously by MPs Wednesday, marked the eighth anniversary of the raising of the Maple Leaf flag. The Commons quashed Conservative motions to raise the Union Jack and provincial and territorial flags along with the Maple Leaf. Before" the debate, External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp tabled the Cuba-Canada hijacking treaty, signed earlier. The treaty requires each country to prosecute hijackers or return them. Leading the attack on Mr. Davis was Ran Harding (NDP-Kootenay West), who said the government has reacted to the pollution problem with weak half-measures, despite powers granted by Parliament. Boat pilots go on strike VANCOUVER (CP) - British Columbia's coast pilost went on strike at midnight Thursday night as the result of a dispute with the Pacific pilotage authority over wages and conditions of work. At 1 a.m. Wednesday, the authority, a Crown corporation, issued a waiver lifting compulsory pilotage rules in most B.C. waters. Hearing aid surgically implanted TORONTO (CP) - Scientists at the University of Toronto say they have developed a hearing aid that is surgically implanted in the ear. Dr. John Fredrickson, associate professor of otolaryngology, said the device has a magnet and coil instead of a speaker and is implanted on a small inner ear bone. The microphone, batteries and amplifier fit behind the ear. He said the device may help people with nerve hearing loss who most often get distortion from conventional hearing aids. Dr. Fredrickson said other scientists have been studying the new aid in monkeys and it is "almost ready for tests on patients. More PoW releases at weekend SAIGON (AP)-A big United States helicopt.� on a peacekeeping mission was shot down today north of Saigon, and five Americans were injured. Meanwhile, a North Vietnamese spokesman reported that the next 20 U.S. prisoners of war being released by Hanoi will be freed Saturday or Sunday. The CH-47 Chinook helicopter was the first U.S. aircraft downed in Vietnam since the ceasefire began Jan. 28. However, three helicopters were hit during the first three days of the truce, with one American killed and four wounded. The Chinook crashed and burned near An Loc, 60 miles north of Saigon. The five crew members were brought to the army hospital in Saigon. It was hit by small-arms and automatic fire a few minutes after it took off to return to Long Binh. The U.S. delegation to the Joint Military Commission made a verbal protest to the Communist delegates. The chief spokesman for the North Vietnamese delegation, Bui Tin, announced that the next 20 U.S. PoWs to be freed by his govern ment will be handed over in Hanoi. It was reported that the United States proposed that they be freed Saturday if arrangements could be completed by then. Tin said a few technical problems remain to be worked out. He reported that teams of the Inter national Commission of Control and Supervision and the Joint Military Commission were flying to Hanoi Saturday to observe the release, as required by the ceasefire agreement. Release of the men will bring the total number of Americans freed since the ceasefire to 163 and will leave 430 Americans to be freed by March 28.
