Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wednesday, January 6, 1971 Two sweepstakes on horse races By THE CANADIAN PRESS Exhibition associations in Edmonton and Calgary announced Tuesday that they will each sponsor a $200,000 sweepstake this summer based on a thoroughbred horse race. First prize in each sweep- Lung disease linked to deficiency LOS ANGELES (AP) - A re-searcher says science has linked the lung disease emphysema to a hereditary enzyme deficiency. Dr. Charles Mittman, director of the City of Hope medical centre's department of respira< tory diseases, said digestive en* zymes produced by the body's white blood cells apparently attack the lungs if the body is deficient in alpha-l-antitrypsin. Mittman said antitrypsin normally regulates the action of enzymes that digest proteins. Just how a deficiency of the enzyme inhibitor leads to emphysema has not yet been proved beyond a doubt, Mittman said in an interview. However, he said the ungov-erned enzymes apparently attack the elastic fibres of lung tissue which need to expand and contract in respiration. Mass jobless protest called VANCOUVER (CP) - The British Columbia Federation of Labor has called for a mass unemployment demonstration at the opening session of the provincial legislature in Victoria, Jan. 21. At the same time the federation announced the appointment of Colin Snell, a member of the carpenters union, as a full-time co-ordinator for a Federation campaign to combat unemployment. Ray Haynes, federation secretary - treasurer, said the Jan. 21 demonstration was designed to "jolt the provincial government into a massive program to deal with the present unemployment crisis which now has reached alarming proportions. More than 76,000 workers are unemployed in B.C. stake will be $100,000, equal to the total prize money handed out in 1970 sweepstakes operated by the organizations. The Edmonton Exhibition Association said its sweepstake will be held in conjunction with the 42nd running of the Canadian Derby Aug. 14. Second prize in the Edmonton sweepstake will be $25,000, third $15,000, fourth $10,000 and fifth $5,000. There will be $15,000 in 145 consolation prizes and three "early bird" draws of $10,000 each May 5, June 2 and July 7 Tickets will cost $2.50 each and will be distributed in books of 12. The sellers will keep two of the tickets in each book and will get a 20-per-cent commission. The Calgary Exhibition and Stampede will base its sweepstake on the Stampede Futurity Stakes Sept. 11, with first-prize money going to the holder of the ticket drawn on the winning horse. Second prize in Calgary will be $22,500, third $12,500, fourth $7,500, fifth $5,000. Ninety - five other ticket holders will get an equal share of $22,500. There will be three early - bird draws June 5, July 10 and Aug. 10, with first prize worth $5,000, second $1,250, third $750, fourth $500, five prizes of $100 and 40 of $50 in each draw. Calgary tickets will be sold throughout the province for $2.50 each, with sellers getting a 20-per-cent commission and five per cent of the prize value of any winning ticket they sell.. BRAVE SEMINOLE - Howard Osceola -r-------- group at the Seminole Indian village in Florida with dark glasses covering his eyes to hide his weepnig. After six weeks in an intensive care unit and three more months in the hospital, Howard is stlil unable to stop weeping. Osceola was struck by two cars and possibly three late one evening leaving him with the left side of his face demolished, his jaw crushed, both arms broken, ribs shattered and a splintered left collarbone. He weeps constantly HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) -Tears stream down the jagged scar on Howard Osceola's face, but he wipes them away with a smile. Although he weeps constantly, he considers himself lucky to be alive. "The surgeons were very good men, very good men," said the young Seminole Indian of the doctors who succeeded in patching his body but were unable to close a tear duct on his left eye. The handsome 19-year-old from the Seminole Okalee Indian Village was struck by at least two cars, and probably three, in a hitchhiking accident last September. His jaw was crushed, both his arms broken in many places, his left collar bone splintered and seven ribs shattered. As police reconstructed the sequence of events, Osceola was first knocked down by a hit and run driver who left him lying in the road. A second car then struck the unconscious man. THROWN INTO CANAL The second driver went to notify the police. When they reached the scene they found Osceola in a roadside canal where he had apparently been tossed by another hit-and-run car. New attempt to divide country OTTAWA (CP) - Prime Minister Trudeau said Tuesday that another reported statement from the outlawed FLQ might be a further attempt to try to divide the Canadian people. Commenting on a report that tlie Montreal police received a statement saying that the FLQ is far from dead, Mr. Trudeau said it may or may not be true. If it is true, he said, it is an added argument against immediate repeal of the Public Order (Temporary Measures) Act, 1970. However, he said, he had no idea whether the statements in it were accurate. "It's just a communique. I can't get very excited over it." "I will not die," Osceola told police who found him lying with only his face above water in the canal beside an empty stretch of U.S. Highway 27 west of Hollywood. He had been hitchhiking from the Hollywood Reservation to the Miccosukee Reservation in the Everglades when it happened. Osceola was unconscious for a month. But after nearly four months in hospital, he was back on his feet. He now works as a guide for tourists to support his young wife and two small children. Blame nature for disaster TEL AVIV (AP) - The rock-slide that killed 21 Israelis and wounded nine last Wednesday was a natural disaster caused by rains that loosened th< rocks, an official inquiry con eluded Monday. The tragedy occurred when 20 tons of overhanging rock fell through the roof on a mess hall in Neot Hakikar, a settlement near the Dead Sea. To halt pedestrian collisions Moose Jaw bylaw called ridiculous MOOSE JAW (CP) - City council, in a move described by one alderman as ridiculous, Monday amended the traffic bylaw to insist that pedestrians walk only on the right-hand side of sidewalks and crosswalks. The traffic bylaw calls for a maximum fine of $100 or 30 days in jail and a minimum fine of $10. Gordon Pritchard, one of four aldermen who opposed the amendment, said it is "ridiculous." Because of the amendment', he said, he will not be able to go into the Hammond building at the corner of Fairford and Main streets if he happened to be walking north on Main St. "I would have to go all the way around the block first." Aid. Raynell Andreychuk submitted the amending motion. She said not all by- laws are on the books simply for enforcement. "A lot of laws are there as guidelines. I can see merit in it," The amendment is designed to eliminate pedestrian collisions on sidewalks. "I just can't see any sense of keeping to the right at the corner of 16th Ave. and Grandview St.", Aid. Pritchard said. "You would if I was coming from the other direc- tion," Miss Andreychuk snapped.
