Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Dateline Alberta Cattle barons plan land grab EDMONTON (CP) A modern day land grab is being planned by a group of Alberta cattle barons who want to use the proposed Private Land Protection Act to get full control over publicly owned grazing lands, the president of the Alberta Fish and Game Association says. Bob Scammel of Red Deer told the association's 45th annual convention the act, which did not survive the last session of the legislature but is expected to be reintroduced this session, is a "smoke screen to gain control of land." Mr. Scammel said supporters of the act believe it will control destructive hunters but the true effect will be to provide a method of charging the public for access to hunt on both private and public grazing land. "There's a precedent for this kind of activity by North American cattle barons. In the U.S., where that sort of thing has gone on already, it's called a land he said. Safety council funds missing CALGARY (CP) About was missing from the funds of the Calgary Safety Council, Al Swanson, president of the Alberta Safety Council, its parent organization, says. He said a former employee of the Calgary council will be questioned in connection with the missing funds and the investigation will be conducted internally at this time. Two mishaps involve 12 cars ST. ALBERT (CP) Six persons were injured, three seriously, in two separate accidents involving 12 vehicles on Highway 2, north of this Edmonton suburb on the weekend. Both accidents occurred during poor road conditions caused by blowing snow and slippery highways. A nine-car pile up occurred when one car went out of control and eight other vehicles, including two semi- trailer trucks, were not able to stop in time. RCMP said all injuries from the rear-end collisions were minor.

Professor Philip Burch, a medical physicist from the University of Leeds, has rejected the evidence which he once accepted as proving a conclusive link. Instead, he argued in an article in the New Scientist magazine, the figures and studies show that genetic development is the main cause of lung cancer. Whatever it is that impels people to smoke may also induce the deadly disease. His controversial about-face brought a swift response from Sir Richard Doll, the Oxford professor whose statistical studies in the early 50s helped in- criminate smoking. Burch's argument, backed by columns of statistics, hinges on two main factors: all the research, "no convincing description of the mechanism whereby smoking is supposed to cause lung cancer has and study has convinced him that the statistics showing increased death risks for smokers are ambiguous, inconclusive and incomplete. He cited reports suggesting that lung cancer was drastically under-diagnosed in the 19th century and has been almost as seriously over-diagnosed this century. This, he says, accounts for the apparent dramatic rise in the incidence of the disease since the turn of the century, coincidental with the universal spread of cigarette smoking. Burch, a non-smoker, quoted the late Sir Ronald Fisher, who vigorously opposed the smoking-and- cancer-link data, for the answer to "the undoubted fact that smokers suffer a higher incidence of lung cancer and various other fatal diseases than non-smokers." Search squad aided Monday, February LETHBRIDOE HERALD John Borger VANCOUVER (CP) Canadian Forces search and rescue operations on the West Coast handled a total of calls for help in 1973. Figures released last week show that equipment breakdown continues to be the main source of problems. During the year 638 vessels broke down and another 245 were reported overdue. Search and rescue personnel serving on coast guard cutters, lifeboats and hovercraft are credited with saving the lives of 129 persons. In one incident last July, the cutter rider rescued 12 persons who had been in the water in wet suits for hours after their barge, being used as a diving platform, sank under them off lona Island. Grounded vessels accounted for 197 calls and there were 64 capsizings. Search and rescue responded to 69 calls for medical assistance and 37 calls for aircraft missing over water.
