There were so many fine people around to help our daughter Pamela Becky Jones, her cousin Laura Jones, and her friend Francis Peta last June 28. The efficient road side assistance of the people who were first to stop and of the RCMP made survival a possibility, then there was the surgical skill and care given by our family doctor and his associate doc- tors plus the excellent around the clock beyond the call of duty care given by the nurses, the orderlies and other staff members, later the therapy department. To complement all this their friends never forgot the girls all the while they where in the hospital. We thank you all so very much. and Esa Jones. 8282 Calgarians start centennial party By STEVE KRUEGER CALGARY (CP) Calgary's 100th birthday party began Wednesday with a bang as the man who quashed plans for a city-sponsored New Year's Day party fired the first of 100 "minute guns" to welcome 1975. Before the year is over, Calgary will have a unique system of riverfront parks, a 225-bell carriolon, a Grey Cup game, and more than a half- million extra visitors. The celebration marking the start of Calgary's second century hasn't all been sweetness, however, as bickering between Century Calgary, the co-ordinating group for the celebration, and Mayor Rod Sykes has left several major events on un- certain footing. Despite the bickering, Calgary stands to gain millions of dollars in public facilities from its birthday year, thanks to heavy grants from the provincial government. The biggest will be the city's centennial project, a million Fort Calgary interpretive centre at the site of the original fort at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow Rivers. The centre will tell the history of the fort and some of the things that have happened since it was built a century ago, but it won't attempt to rebuild the former Northwest Mounted Police fort. The glass-walled interpretive centre will be built over some of the remain- ing foundations of the original fort, and the foundations will be preserved inside the modern centre. The land around the centre will be returned to its natural prairie environment, and a footbridge will connect the centre lands to the neighbor- ing St. Georges Island City Zoo. The city will be the first prairie city to ever host the Grey Cup when the Canadian football season ends this November. FACELIFT The first stages of a million facelift for McMahon Stadium should be completed in time to provide several thousand additional seats in the home of the Calgary Stampeders. The Dutch Canadian Club of Calgary is building the carriolon project in the massive Calgary Tower base. The bells will be heard through speakers mounted at 250 and 300 foot heights. Although the centre won't be ready until 1976, civic groups have already pledged financial help for the centre. One group has donated 000 for displays, and the North Calgary Jaycees has pledged to build the footbridge to the zoo. Atco Industries, manufac- turers of mobile homes and mobile construction camps, has donated for development of Centenary Park next to the Calgary Zoo on St. Georges Island. The project was chosen by employees, who voted on what they would like to see as their company's centennial year project. The centennial celebration was officially opened by Mayor Sykes, who fired the first of 100 "minute guns" Wednesday to bring in the New Year, The guns, manned by militia crews from Lethbridge, fired the 100-gun salute at one- minute intervals starting at noon. Century Calgary officials say that before the next New Year's Day, more than people will be drawn to Calgary to attend a score of national and international conventions which have chosen Calgary as a conven- tion site due to the centennial year activities. Hundreds of thousands more are expected in the nor- mal flow of tourists, and thousands are expected to visit the Stampede City to at- tend or take part in 40 national and international athletic competitions. The events include the Canadian Little League Baseball Championships a celebrity tennis tournament, international snowmobile championships in January, and numerous golf tour- naments. Although not a Calgary event, the Canada Winter Games Feb. 11-23 will draw thousands through Calgary en route to the games sites in Le.thbrtdge and other Southern Alberta com- munities. Salute Calgary Mayor Rod Sykes fired the first of a 100-gun New Year's Day artillery salute Wednes- day honoring commence- ment of Calgary's centen- nial year. Members of 20th Independent Field Battery, Lethbridge, manned the guns. Stunt charge quashed EDMONTON (CP) The appellate division of Alberta Supreme Court has ruled that blinking a car's headlights to warn other drivers -of speed traps does not warrant a charge of stunting under the Highway Traffic Act. In a written judgment for the three man bench, Mr. Justice G. H. Allen quashed a conviction and fine against Robert Tremblay of St. Albert. Mr. Tremblay was charged- under a section of the act which says no driver could perform any stunt that might distract, startle or interfere with other drivers. Mr. Justice Allen said there was no evidence that flashing the lights distracted, startled or interfered- with other drivers. Missing plutonium reports denied OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (Reuter) The president of Kerr-McGee Corp. Monday denied news reports that large amounts of plutonium, from which nuclear bombs can be made, are missing from the company's nuclear plant near Crescent, Okla. President James Kelly ad- mitted that a small amount of plutonium was unaccounted for, but said it is only as much as is normally lost in processing. He said the amount missing is not anywhere near the 20 to 60 pounds reported in the New York Times and elsewhere. .Twelve pounds of plutonium, the waste product of nuclear plants, is sufficient to fashion a crude nuclear bomb. "The material described in the news stories includes the material in process in the plant in pipes, pumps, tanks, glove boxes and other process Kelly said. "Therefore, it cannot be ful- ly measured until the present contract is completed and the plant is shut down and thoroughly cleaned of all in- processing material." Kelly added that "at the end of the previous contract, this procedure was followed and MERCY FLIGHT In August, 1938, Paul Schulte, a German mis- sionary, flew his plane, the Flying Cross, from Churchill, Man., to Arctic Bay, N.W.T., to evacuate a sick mis- sionary. Thjs was one of the first mercy flights in the Arc- tic Islands. the final accountability for plutonium material was well within permissible limits es- tablished by the AEC (Atomic Energy "The AEC regulations provide for a small percen- tage of normal processing loss which is non-recoverable and, therefore, not available for unauthorized purposes." LONDON (CP) Two old masters of comedy, a cham- pion jockey and the first man ever to crack the four-minute mile are prominent among more than 700 British and Commonwealth citizens receiving awards in the Queen's New Year's honors published today.

Also made a Companion of Honor is Lord Gardiner, chairman of the Council of Justice, who several years ago was among those who campaigned successfully for the abolition of capital punish- ment in Britain. Lord Gar- diner was lord chanvellor in Prime Minister Harold Wilson's 1964-1970 Labor government.

Episcopal Bishop Ned Cole has advised an inner-city parish here that the woman called to become an associate pastor is hot recognized as a priest and is not licensed to of-. ficiate. The parish vestry has nam- ed Rev. Betty Schiess, one of- 11 'women ordained as Episcopal (Anglican) priests in a controversial service last summer, to serve in her home diocese. "I didn't think I'd be this ex- cited but it feels just she said Saturday in a tele- phone interview. "They really need me. I'm delighted at the authentic nature of the whole' thing." Rev. Walter Welsh, rector of the parish, said Bishop Cole has only advised the vestry that the ordination of Mrs. Schiess, 50, has not been recognized by the denomination's House of Bish- ops. Mr. Welsh said the bishop has yet to act on the matter. He said no date has been set for- his neW associate to assume her duties at Grace church, which in the call of the vestry included oc- casionally substituting for the rector in priestly functions, such as celebrating holy com- munion. The parish has the right to call a minister and the bishop is 'entitled to make recommendations, Mr. Welsh said. The ordinations of the 11 women by three bishops have been ruled invalid by the Epis- copal Church's House of Bish- ops. However, a majority of the bishops favor action to authorize women priests.
