Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta - THI LETHBRIDOI HERALD - Thursday, February 23, 1971 CLOSE CALL - The driver of this trailer-truck spent on uncomfortable two hours in his cab dangling from a bridge northwest of' Gothenburg, Sweden, before he was rescued. He lost control of the vehicle and crashed through the guard rail. The trailer at this point remained pre-cariously balanced on the span. Farm implement firm layoffs will be made U.S. military snooping accounts amplified WASHINGTON (AP) - Accounts of widespread military spying on civilians were amplified before Congress Wednesday and Representative Abner Mik-va-a reported target himself- -denounced the officers responsible as "the true subversives of our society." Three former army intelligence staffers, Ralph Stein, John O'Brien and Christopher H. Pyle, testified that the military drastically exceeded its claim of limiting domestic surveillance to possible insurrection situations. Among dozens of other exam- ples given Senator Sam Ervta's constitutional rights subcommittee, the three men said agents infiltrated scores of peaceful anti-war gatherings, monitored the 1968 Republican and Democratic national conventions, and filed running reports on the funeral of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Mikva, following O'Brien to the witness stand, urged making it a crime for any military personnel to engage In any snooping on civilians. TORONTO (CP) Union spokesmen say the decision by Massey - erugson Ltd. to lay off 2,100 farm implement workers here and in Brantford, Ont., is a bargaining ploy in the face of a March 2 strike deadline. However, a company official said the temporary layoffs, due to start next week, would be carried out even if a new contract is signed on company terms. Massey-Ferguson said a $19 million loss last year makes it necessary to "bring inventories into balance." Denies offer for Home OTTAWA (CP) - External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp says he has not received any offer from the United States on a co-operative effort to build an oil pipeline from Alaska. David Anderson (L-Esqul-malt-Saanich) asked whether the U.S. has made such an offer, as reported by the Toronto Telegram Monday. "If they have," said the minister in the Commons Wednesday, "they have not made the offer to me." He also said that the U.S. has not yet replied formally to a let-tar written by Mr. Sharp suggesting Canadian-U.S. consultations on the method to be used in transporting Alaska oil to the U.S. West Coast. He said that American officials have suggested they will consult their Canadian counterparts on the form of these consultations. "A traditional bargaining ma-noeuvre," said Dennis Mc-Dermott, vice-president and Canadian director of the United Auto Workers. "They treat collective bargaining like a military exercise." In Brantford, Gerald Mc-Comell, a union steward, said Massey-Ferguson is "just trying to frighten workers" out of going on strike. Mayor Howard Winter of Brantford was also concerned. Massey-Ferguson, with three plants, is the biggest employer in the city of 63,000. MORE UNEMPLOYMENT "We need more unemployment here like we need another snowstorm," he said. The UAW has been bargaining for a 50- to 56-cent-an-hour wage increase in the first year of a three-year contract with three-per-cent increases in the second and third years. The basic hourly rate now is $3.18. Massey-Ferguson said 500 of the .1,800 employees in Toronto will be laid off next week and another 400 later in the month. In Brantford, 650 of the 700 employees . at the combines plant will be laid off March 1, and the 400 employees of the foundry plant will be laid off March 15. ' SET AIR PENALTIES TEHRAN (AP) - The Iranian . Parliament gave its final ratification Tuesday to a bill which calls for execution by firing squad of any hijacker who damages a plane or causes the death of any passenger or crew member.

AGT, part of Trins-Cinidi Teliphoni Sytttn At AGT your dimes buy more than conversation Last year, to keep Alberta's 650,000 telephones ringing we spent over 100 million dollars. That's about $13 a month per telephone, or 2Vz times your monthly phone rental fee. Last year we paid more than 46 million dollars to 6,700 pretty important people. Our employees. They in turn spent a lion's share of that money right here in Alberta. Last year our 890 vehicles used over a million gallons of gas. We ordered everything from pens, pencils and paper to glant-slzed buildings right here in Alberta. We even paid over two million dollars in property taxes. What does it all mean to you? Well, every time you spend even a dime with AGT, someone else benefits. Because, when we spend money in Alberta, or when our employees spend money in Alberta, other Albertans are on the receiving end. And that helps keep Alberta's economy rolling ahead.
