Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Thimdoy, February It, 1971 1HE IETH8RID6E HEXMD 13 Grisly story of slavery at ranch GOIANIA, Brazil (Reuter) i grisly story of slavery, mur- er and disease in a ranch deep n the jungles of the Mato Jrosso in central Brazil has merged in a police report here. "A veritable concentration amp where hundreds of men ived in a status of complete lavery" was described in the police report Tuesday to Fed- eral Judge Jose de Jesus Filho. The Santa Teresina ranch on he banks of the River Ara- guiaia employed workers who were treated like slaves after being lured there by false >romises of high wages, the re- >ort said. The ranch, which can be reached only by boat or plane, is owned by a group of business- men in the industrial city of Sao 'aulo, police said. The report, published by the Jornal do Brasil news agency, said the police did not have def- nite proof of murders. Tit it said there are indications that many workers were killed in the iungles around the ranch. When workers arrived at the ranch they were told their ward and keep cost more than the a day they earned. W i t n e s s e s told police the workers became virtual prison- ers with armed men belonging ;o a "kind of private police" niarding the few exits from Santa Teresina. SASQUATCH PRINT? Wayne W. Wends, a state wildlife agent, spent his lunch hour investigating giant footprints in the mud and snow near Arden, a crossroads community in northeastern Washington.

How YOUR Tax Dollar is Spent is the title of the quali- ty-paper publication. Instead of the cold', calculated figures in the bulky estimates book, the booklet tends to portray the government as a harnde householder stretching the budget in all directions. It tells how the estimates book affects every Canadian. "For your family it may be in the form of a family allow- ance cheque, or the enjoy- ment of a national park for the family breadwinner a new job or a retraining course that leads to better pay. For the community, a handsome public building or a new sew- age treatment plant." What the government is trying to do is divide the dol- lar in a way "that will be hi the best interests of all Cana- dians and Canada as a whole." It reminds you that you are almost certain to get back some of your tax dollar through health and welfare programs, and that seven cents of "your" dollar goes into transportation and com- munication services "prov- ided to you by the federal government." You are also reminded that since the current government assumed office under Prime Minister Tru- have been inten- sified efforts to reduce re- gional disparities. It tells how the government "has chosen to emphasize its assistance to old people on low incomes, to veterans, to those who are temporarily out of work and to the Indian Es- kimo peonle." But the last sentence in the book puts everyhing in perspective: "It's your dollar."

One system being discussed in the United States would require that a car's horn would sound continuously and its signal lights would flash when the ve- hicle exceeded a designated speed, Gerard Duquet, parlia- mentary secretary to the trans- port minister, said in a written reply to Barry Mather (NTJP- Mr. Mather also asked whether the government was considering a requirement that motorcycles be equipped with turn signal lamps. Mr. Duquet said this is under consideration because motorcy- cles "present a poorly defined target" in traffic and it is desir- able to increase their "visual impact."
