Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, February 22. 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Drug freaks use horse medicine to get kicks OTTAWA (CP) Drug freaks, ever willing to ex- periment, are turning to a horse medicine in their search for kicks, RCMP say. Narcotic investigation officials said Thursday the drug users are risking their lives as they take either alone or in a potent cocktail with LSD. PCP is a narcotic used as a muscle relaxer for horses by veterinarians. It started turning up on the illicit .market about IVz years ago and last summer was put on the list of dangerous drugs in narcotic legislation. While RCMP said its use has not caught up with others, such as the amphetamines, it is a problem nationally. It appeared to be more in use in Ontario than elsewhere. An indication of its use was given Thursday when RCMP swooped on alleged drug traffickers in the Ottawa-Hull area in search of more than 50 men charged with more than 90 drug offences. The charges included 14 for trafficking in PCP or Police said some traffickers mix LSD with a potent market it as TCH, which is an ingredient found in cannabis. In a statement distributed while the raids were being car- ried out, Supt. Marcel Sauve, in charge of criminal investigation for RCMP A Division, which covers a large area of western Quebec and Eastern Ontario, said: "There have been a number of seizures of this drug across Canada and several in the Ottawa-Hull area. This is a quite dangerous drug and, if not reduced properly, can be lethal." He said depending on how the drug is mixed it can get be- tween and an ounce on the drug market. The drug is used two ways. Taken by itself it is a hallucino- gen. Taken with LSD it heightens the hallucinogenic effect of the latter. The Le Dain commission on the non-medical use of drugs made a passing reference to PCP when it said that it and LSD and some com- bination of them, account for about 90 per cent of the hallu- cinogens on the illicit market.

CFA agrees to disagree on feed grains issue SASKATOON (CP) The Canadian Federation of Agriculture (CFA) Thursday agreed to disagree on the controversial feed grains issue but took a firm stand that the industry must be provided with more hired hands. After two years of study, the organization admitted it could not reach a consensus on the feed issue and decided to leave the problem in the hands of the federal government. Delegates at the annual meeting adopted a statement by the directors which called for further intensive and detailed examination of the feed issue by the federal government with CFA members. At the same time, a state- ment by Alberta's Unifarm, presented by president Dobson Lea, never reached the convention floor. It said: "The negotiation of policy position is clearly the responsibility of the federation. Abrogation of this responsibility invited a form of exploitation of either or Alberta pension cheques increased EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta government announced Thursday that pension cheques for about persons in the province will increase by five per cent this month. Labor Minister Dr. Bert Hohol said in a news release that more than retired Alberta civil servants will receive the five per cent increase to help offset the rising cost of living. An additional -retired employees of local authorities throughout the province also will receive the increase. They include pensioners who worked for cities, towns, municipalities, school boards and hospitals who receive pension benefits under Alberta's local authorities pension plan. The increase, retroactive to Jan. 1, 1974, will cost the government about annually. "Pensions paid to civil servants who retired prior to 1960 are now more than 53 per cent higher than they were at the date of Dr. Hohol said. "This compares favorably with the usual two- per cent adjustment which would have increased pensions by about 35 per cent over the same period." Conrad man is charged in teacher's death both buyers and sellers of feed grain." Last August, when farm groups failed to reach con- sensus on the question, the federal government implemented an interim plan designed to eliminate differences between Canadian wheat board prices for feed on the Prairies and other parts of the country. The plan set up the means whereby feed grain sales could be made outside the board's pricing control and was aimed at providing an equal base price for feed grain purchases across Canada. WEST OPPOSES PLAN While the plan has generally been accepted by livestock feeders in Eastern Canada, there has been concerted opposition from Prairie grain growers and livestock producers who say that the measure gives the East an unfair competitive market advantage. The federal government intends to introduce a permanent feed grain policy before Aug. 1. A lengthy resolution calling for measures to ensure ade- quate labor on farms was adopted. Basically, it called on the federal government to provide a commitment for adequate income and security for the agriculture industry to allow farmers to employ competitively suitably skilled labor. The CFA said fanners who create new jobs should receive the same federal grant of that is provided to other industries where jobs are created. Vic Sommerfeld of Saskatoon, in an interview, said he had to sell his dairy herd last summer because he could not afford to pay the wages necessary to keep competent help for his op- eration. CONRAD, Mont. (AP) A young man has been charged with deliberate homicide, aggravated kidnapping, assault and rape in connection with the death of a school teacher last month. Duncan McKenzie, 22, of Conrad, is being held on bond of He is charged in connection with the death of Lana whoSe body was found Jan. 23 a few miles from the northwestern Montana country school where she taught. FOR VETERANS HELENA, Mont. (AP) The Montana House approved a bill to pay about to Montana veterans of the Vietnam war. The bill also provides payments of to survivors of deceased or missing Montana servicemen and to those who were prisoners of war. _____ MATERNITY POLICY HELENA, Mont. (AP) The Montana Senate rejected a bill that would have guaranteed Montana fathers die right to view the birth of their children in hospital delivery rooms. The senate public health committee had given the bill an adverse recommendation. Sen. Elmer Flynn Missoula) said the committee felt the legislature had no business dictating maternity ward policy to Montana hospitals.
