Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February LETHDRIDOE Dateline Alberta i Railway faces charges CALGARY (CP) Canadian Pacific Railroad is to appear in provincial court Feb. 27 on charges laid by the city that the corporation violated the municipal river pollution bylaw. A summons was issued on charges that the company allowed an undisclosed, but sizeable, amount of oil to be spilled into a low-lying portion of the CPR yards in the Alyth section of the city. The charges w'ere brought by Al MacPherson, city bylaw enforcement officer, under a section of the statute which prohibits the deposit of waste material which may enter a water course. Maximum fine for the offense is Civic payroll grows EDMONTON (CP) Edmonton is "running wild" in the area of civic employees, Aid. Cec Purves said Friday. Staff in the Edmonton Utilities has increased by 27 per cent from 1969 to 1974 from in 1969 to an estimated this year, he said. Total civic staff, including police and fire departments, was in 1969, in 1971 and this year, he said. However, a city official said the increases were not out of line and attributed them to rapid expansion in services as the city grows. Thomas wins merit award EDMONTON (CP) Lewis H. Thomas of the University of Alberta has been awarded the Historical Society of Alberta's 1974 award of merit Dr, Thomas, chairman of the history department at the university from 1965 to 1968, was given the award for his service to western historical studies. He was born in Saskatoon and worked as provincial archivist in Regina until 1964. Professor denied tenure EDMONTON (CP) An associate professor at the University of Alberta was denied tenure Friday by an Alberta Supreme Court decision. Mr. Justice J. C. Cavanagh dismissed an application by Dr. Anthony Vanek for tenure in the department of Slavic languages after deciding he did not have the power to quash a university tenure committee's decision. Mr. Justice Cavanagh said that, had he possessed the power, he would have granted the application because of unspecified procedural errors.

Expulsion violates rights By GEORGE KITCHEN UNITED NATIONS (CP) The Soviet Union appears to have violated some f undamen- tal United Nations conventions, not to mention its own laws, by expelling author Alexander Sol- zhenitsyn but no one is likely to try to make an issue of the affair. There is some feeling that the Nobel Prize winner is lucky to have his head or, at the least, not to find himself languishing in a Siberian prison. This lends support to the Soviet view that Solzhenitsyn will be a nine-day wonder and will gradually blend into the literary landscape as another exiled Russian intellectual. CALGARY (CP) Workers i at Lucerne Foods, who voted 80 to 61 in favor of a strike earlier this week, have decided to stay on the job to allow for another round of talks, a union spokesman said today. Merv Pateman, business agent for the 105-member local of the Meat Cutters and Canadian Food and Allied Workers, said negotiations would begin Tuesday with company representatives. The union has not given strike notice and would have to supply two working days notice before a walkout could take place. Negotiations at the Lucerne Foods meat warehouse, owned by Canada Safeway Ltd., had been under way for about a month before the strike vote was taken last Tuesday. A strike of the plant, which supplies block-ready cuts of beef for about 200 Safeway stores in Alberta and British Columbia, would involve cutters, shippers, baggers, packers, maintenance men and engineering employees. When the strike vote was taken, the two 'sides were divided over wage increases ranging from to an hour on base rates of an hour for shippers and for meat cutters and eingineers. Paper moves TORONTO (CP) The Globe and Mail will complete its move Sunday to new quar- ters at 444 Front St. West. The newspaper, which has had its offices for 37 years at 140 King St. West in downtown Toronto has been in the process of moving to the new waterfront location for several months. The plant was purchased from The Telegram after that newspaper ceased publication in 1971. The purchasing price was reported to be million. DETROIT (AP) General Motors Corp. is recalling nearly 1.2 million passenger cars and light duty trucks equipped with a single diaphragm brake, booster to find about which company officials said might have defective vacuum power brake housings. About 85 per cent of the ve- hicles involved have been delivered to their owners. In Oshawa, Ont., GM Canada officials said an additional units in Canada are involved of which are in owners' hands. The recalled units include: and 1974 intermediate and full size Chevrolets. intermediate Buicks, Pontiacs and Oldsmobiles. and 1974 compact models of Nova, Camaro, Ventura, Firebird, Omega and Apollo. and 1974 Chevrolet and CMC light duty trucks. The company said a complete loss of braking will result if the power brake housing separates. The problem was discovered from field reports, GM spokesmen said. There have been eight minor accidents reported involving such brake failures, according to GM officials, none of which resulted in injuries. The company said the power brake booster will be modified to eliminate the problem. No replacement parts are required and the time needed to perform the correction is about 10 minutes, officials said. GM officials said modi- fications on the recalled units would be made without charge to the owners.
