MCLENNAN Railway employees in the Peace region of northwestern Alberta have called for im- proved safety precautions following the injury earlier this week of a trainee engineer when a train was hit by gunfire. Twenty five Northern Alberta Railways engineers and trainmen met yesterday in this community, about 205 miles northwest of Edmonton, to discuss the issue and draft a telegram to NAR manager Ken Perry. Robert Penner of McLennan suffered glass splinters in his neck Tuesday after a small bore bullet, one of at least seven fired at an NAR freight train, smashed through the glass of the engine in which he was riding. RCMP have con- firmed that the shots came from within a pick-up truck following the train between High Prairie, 180 miles northwest of Edmonton, and McLennan. Mr. Perry, at the time of the shooting, said sniper fire was not new to NAR crews travelling the route from Ed- monton into the Peace area. He expressed regret at the return of such an incident when they appeared "to have slackened off the last six months." NAH' engineer Ron Dcmpsey, spokesman for the meeting, said the company's promise to apprehend and prosecute the people behind such acts is not enough. "We think the company should be more concerned with protecting its employees against future incidents of this kind. "The company has known of this situation for five Mr. Dempsey said. "We have rocks thrown at us so often we don't even pay any attention to them anymore. Switches have been unlocked, arid there have been other shoootings. "We just have to take it like sitting ducks." A suggestion was made at the meeting that cabooses and engine cabs be constructed to offer more protection from gunfire. There was also a call for im- proved radio communications on trains to ensure prompt police action against vandals. There are some sections of the NAR's northern run where radios are totally ineffective, Mr. Dempsey said. The meeting also suggested that the troubled Slave Lake run revert to daylight opera- tion only, while the other measures are being im- plemented. Meanwhile, railway unions and the NAR are distributing posters in the region offering rewards for informa- tion leading to the arrest and conviction of persons who at- tack NAR property or per- sonnel. Discrimination charge rejected CALGARY (CP) A provincial board of inquiry has found that the Alberta School Act does not dis- criminate against Catholic parents Al and Anniliere Schmidt by requiring them to pay non resident tuition fees in order to send their children to a public school.

Alberta's dumping ground EDMONTON (CP) Alberta has become a dump- ing ground for California grapes rejected because of boycotts in the United States, Ontario and British Columbia, Eugene Mitchell of the Alberta federation of Labor says. Mr. Mitchell, executive secretary of the federation, said he has been informed that grape sales have increased about 300 per cent in Alberta from the same period last year. The federation is being join- ed by the Edmonton and District Labor Council, the Edmonton Council of Churches and other groups in urging a boycqtt of California grapes, he said. Mr. Mitchell'said in a news release that the United Farm Workers led by Cesar Chavez, managed to acquire contracts with corporate growers in 1971 after years of struggle to establish collec- tive bargaining and end pover- ty wage levels. However, the growers have refused to renew their contracts with the UFW and have signed agreements with the Teamsters. Mr. Mitchell said the UFW asked for representation votes for the farm workers but this has been denied. GET HEADACHES LONDON (AP) Politicians suffer more headaches than the rest of the British population, the. Migraine Trust reported Wednesday. It said a survey of the 635 lawmakers in the House of Commons showed 28 per cent got severe headaches, compared with a national average of 10 per cent. after the Alberta Human Rights Commission ruled that the choice presented to the Catholic family was dis- criminatory. The Schmidts, formerly of Toronto, based their claim on the school board's insistence that they pay annual tuition fees of for each of their two children because they refused to sign a form renouncing their faith. The inquiry, headed by Prof. W. F. Bowker of the University of Alberta, concludes the discrimination charge is not justified because a school is not a place of public accommodation. The individual rights protection act disallows discrimination with respect to "any accom- modation, services or facilities customarily available to the public." A member of the inquiry, Dora McCulloch, says that in her opinion "there are in fact provisions of the school act which do restrict the freedom of the individual in civil matters because of his religious beliefs his freedom to choose in which school system his children shall be educated and to allocate his school taxes for that purpose." Dateline Alberta Two charged in train case MCLENNAN ICP) TWO Peace region men were charged Friday in connection with an incident earlier in the week in which a trainee engineer was hit by gunfire from a pick-up truck following a train between High Prairie and McLennan.
