Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Alberta to check elevator strike EDMONTON (CP) - Alberta Labor Minister Bert Hohol says the province will examine a strike of elevator technicians that began more than five months ago and "continue working with a federal mediator." Dr. Hohol made the statement after developers, businessmen, manufacturers and elevator company officials asked the provincial government to take steps to end the Alberta portion of the nation-wide strike. The request was1 made in a 31-page brief presented by the Alberta Construction Associa- tion, the Alberta Chamber of Commerce, the Canadian Manufacturers' Association and the Canadian Elevator Manufacturers' Association. Dr. Hohol said the government "will take a close look" at the recommendations contained in the brief. Some 2,800 � members of the International Union of Elevator Constructors - 250 in Alberta -have been on strike against five United States - controlled companies - Armor, Otis, Canadian Westinghouse, Montgomery and Turnbull - since Sept. 7. � / I'LL HELP YOU GET THE HOME YOU WANT! ^ ART DRIEDIGER Send for your, free 1973 Home Guide Today.

Robin Hall, president of Met-romarket Newspapers, said Compensation for druggist EDMONTON (CP) - Harry C. Grose, an 86-year-old Calgary druggist injured last July when he tried to protect two women being beaten by a man, has been awarded $750 by the Alberta Crimes Compensation Board. Mr. Grose, struck in the jaw and knocked to the floor, told the board he still suffers pain in his jaw, finds it difficult to chew and that his hearing in one ear has been affected. Despite a doctor's opinion that the hearing loss was not related to the injury, the board decided to award Mr. Grose compensation for pain and suffering. many institutions and Individ uals are frustrated because "they feel they can't get their messages across through the news columns." He told a meeting of the Ca-n a d i a n Public Relations Society: "They want their message put forward in a way that they can approve of. They want control. They can't get that control in the'news columns-and hopefully they never will." Mr. Hall said there has been an increasing tendency for trade unions and management to buy newspaper space to present their views to the public. Metromarket Newspapers is an advertising sales organization set up by eight news papers in an attempt to switch advertising dollars to newspapers from television. WASHINGTON (Reuter) - The United States Navy is pondering the case of its first seagoing pregnant sailor. It is also wondering what to do about a young couple from the same ship who want to get married. The romancing is aboard the hospital ship Sanctuary, which went into service last fall with a mixed male and female crew. It is a pilot project aimed at expanding the role of women in the navy. The crew joined the ship in San Francisco in December. Shortly afterwards, the young woman-unmarried and identified only by rank of seaman-discovered she was pregnant. "The baby is due in August," the navy spokesman said yesterday. "So, what happened did not happen aboard the Sanctuary." He said the father, a navy rating, is not serving aboard the hospital ship. The woman has been transferred ashore "for medical reasons." The second case concerns a love affair between a male machinist's mate and a female radio operator, who met aboard the Sanctuary. "They are considering getting married." said the spokesman. ' If they do? Answering the inevitable questions, the spokesman said: "The captain would not be able to perform the marriage ceremony. They would have to be transferred to separate ships. Policy does not allow married couples to serve aboard the same vessel and besides there are no cabin facilities for hunsbands and wives." Despite the two cases, navy officials say the idea of a mixed deck crew aboard ship was working well. The men seem to like it.

DIARY OF AN UNBORN CHILD OCTOBER 5 - Today my life began. My parents do not know it yet, I am as small as a seed of an apple, but it is I already. And I am to be a girl. I shall have blond hair and blue eyes. Just about everything is settled though, even the fact that I shall love flowers. OCTOBER 19 - Some say that I am not a real person yet, that only my mother exists. But I am a real person, just as a small crumb of bread is yet truly bread. My mother is. And I am. OCTOBER 23 - My mouth is just beginning to open now. Just think, in a year or so I shall be laughing and later talking. I know what my first word will be: MAMA. OCTOBER 25 - My heart began to beat today all by itself. From now on it shall gently beat for the rest of my life without ever stopping to rest! And after many years it will tire. It will stop, and then I shall die. NOVEMBER 2 - I am growing a bit every day. My arms and legs are beginning to take shape. But I have to wait a long time yet before those little legs will raise me to my mother's arms, before these little arms will be able to gather flowers and embrace my father. NOVEMBER 12 - Tiny fingers are beginning to form on my hands. Funny how small they are! I'll be able to stroke my mother's hair with them. NOVEMBER 20 - It wasn't until today that the doctor told mom that I am living here under her heart. Oh, how happy she must be! Are you happy, mom? NOVEMBER 25 - My mom and dad are probably thinking about a name for me. But they don't even know that I am a little girl. I want to be called Kalhy. I am getting so big already. DECEMBER 10 - My hair is growing. It is smooth and bright and shiny. I wonder what kind of hair mom has. DECEMBER 13 - 1 am just about able to see. It is dark around 'me. When mom brings me into the world it will be full of sunshine and flowers. But what I want more than anything is to see my mom. How do you look, mom? DECEMBER 24 - I wonder if mom hears the whispering of my heart? Some children come into the world a little sick. But my heart is strong and healthy. It beats so evenly: Tup-tup, tup-tup. You'll have a healthy little daughter, mom! DECEMBER 28 - Today my mother killed me. INSERTED BY KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS No. 5520, PICTURE BUTTE.
