Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, January 2, 1971 Cross turns up in honors list LONDON (CP) - James (Jasper) Cross, kidnapped and later released by Quebec terrorists after a breath-taking two months, turned up in the Queen's New Year honors list made public here. The former British trade com-missioner in Montreal was made a Commander of the Order of St, Michael and St. George, a notch below entitlement to be called sir. A Buckingham Palaca spokesman said the award was given partly because of the 49-year-old Cross's courage during the long ordeal in which his life hung in the balance-and partly because he had a decoration coming up anyway. Prime Minister Edward Heath, who defeated the Labor government of Harold Wilson last June 18, produced 680 names for honors ranging from three peerages clown to routine Members of the Order of British Empire (MBE) awards. One that will undoubtedly be Your NEW Authorized Dealer JEEP" TRUCKS AND STATION WAGONS UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD. Cor. 3rd Ave.; 3rd St. S. Phone 327-1418 applauded by millions of readers is the feminine equivalent of a knighthood to Agatha Christie, 80, the thriller writer whoso 80th book came out this year. The writer, who is Lady Mal-lowan through her marriage to Sir Max Mallowan, now will be entitled to call herself Dame Agatha through becoming a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire. There is one honor of particular interest to Canada. Peter Haymen, British high commissioner in Ottawa, is knighted with the title of Knight Grand Commander of the Order of St. Michael and St. George. This entitles him to use sir in front of his name. A second knighthood with a Canadian aspect went to Prof. Frederick Dainton, vice-chancellor of Nottingham University. He lectured at the University of Alberta in 1962. A miscellany of politicians, businesmen, civil servants, musicians-Heath plays the piano and is a choir leader-and a scattering of union men appeared in the prime minister's list. One tragedy was that Leslie Cannon, 50, head of the big Electrical Trades Union died early in December shortly after his name appeared for a knighthood for a unionist on Heath's list. The previous Labor government had showered these and peerages on deserving union supporters. Only three peerages were in the new list. They all were lifetime appointments, despite some speculation earlier that Heath would end Labor's practice of cutting out hereditary appointments to the House of Lords.

Robert Porter, minister of home affairs in the government of turbulent Northern Ireland from 1969 until he retired last August, also was knighted. Marcus Sieff, joint managing director of the huge merchandising firm of Marks and Spencer, becomes a knight. His father was made a peer under Wilson in 19(56.

JAMES CROSS Two men held for murder WOKING, England (AP) - A Royal Navy cook and a civilian truck driver were charged here with the Christmas Eve killing of 15-year-old Janet Stevens in a case known throughout Britain as the Red Riding Hood murder. The cook was identified by police as Peter Baker, 17, and the driver as David Smith, 21, Janet was strangled as she trudged over bleak countryside carrying gifts in a red plastic bag for her grandmother. Her body was found covered in snow and twigs on an army firing range near the garrison town of Pirbright, Surrey, on Christmas Day Passenger revenues decline MONTREAL (CP) - Canadian National Railways reports 1970 revenues increased modestly over last year in the areas of carload freight, express services and telecommunications. Passenger service revenues declined. In a year-end statement, N.J. MacMillan, chairman and president of the government-operated railway, said continued emphasis on marketing activities and the integration of transportation and communication services is expected to produce a "modest" upswing in 1971 business activity. Revenue gains in 1970 over last year included: Carload freight, up four per cent; express services, up 11 per cent; commercial telecommunications, up about 11 per cent; and CNR-operated hotels, up five per cent. An eight-per-cent drop in passenger services revenues and an $8 million loss from the annual reduction in federal government subsidy payments resulted in a total increase of about three per cent in operating revenue. Operating expenses increased 3% per cent "reflecting the greater volume of business, higher wage rates and the inflationary pressure on prices paid for materials and other serv- SHOE REPAIRS ? BEST ?

An additional $69 million was paid indirectly through pensions and other employee benefits. Rolling stock ordered in Canada amounted to $84 million. Labor agreements in 1971 will be an "important factor in the company's financial position," OIL IN SEWERS NEW YORK (AP) - The environmental protection administration is trying to track down New York City service stations which have been dumping oil into the sewer system. A spokesman for the agency said the problem began to assume serious proportions about a year ago when service stations had to start paying around three cents a gallon to have oil that had been taken from motorists' cars removed to plants where it is re-refined for future use. the CNR said. Agreements were still outstanding with non-operating unions representing about 50,000 enginemen, fireman and trainmen. CNR has embarked on establishing a nation-wide chain of CN Servocentres which will permit "the fast flow of information available on the company's computer network" and make this information available to areas beyond major urban centres.
