Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 8, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, January 8, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Dateline Alberta Power rales going up EDMONTON (CP) Customer rates charged to all classes of power consumers will have to be increased this year because of mounting costs, the general manager of Edmonton Power said Tuesday. Vic Kondrosky said the prime reason for a rate increase is "very substantial" boosts in the cost of natural gas used for power generation. He said a recommendation on the increase should go to the com- mission board and city council in a lew weeks. Mr. Kondrosky, who said Edmonton Power's rates are the lowest in any major Cana- dian city, declined to say how much the increase would be. Plant will continue EDMONTON (CP) The Two Hills Chemical Co., sav- ed by the provincial govern- ment from going under a year ago, will continue operating for at least one more year, a government spokesman said today. "A preliminary assessment has been made and the deci- sion has been made for the arrangement to be carried on for a further the spokesman said in an inter- view. "The previous year didn't really give a full oppor- tunity for adequate assessment." UNITED MOTORS Calgary gunman CO. LTD.

Alberta man dug grave of trader 412-foot Davis' IT'S ON Our CATCH-UP 75 SALE We're selling all our new 1975 AMC cars at over our cost at UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD. 'Serving you over a quarter Century" 302 3rd Ave, S. Phprie 327-2805 EDMONTON (CP) Charlie Anderson, 84, who claimed to have dug the grave of legendary trader and ex- plorer "12-Foot died recently. Mr. Anderson, employed for several years as an interpreter with the Indian af- fairs department, was born in Grouard in northern Alberta and lived for most of his life at Driftpile and Joussard, near Lesser Slave Lake. He said in an interview last year that Henry Fuller Davis, who got his nickname by min- ing worth of gold from a 12-foot space in the Cariboo Security system debate set .in 1861, made a friend promise to bury him on the high bank overlooking the junction of the Peace and Smoky rivers. Mr. Anderson said the friend kept his promise by asking him and a schoolmate to dig the grave after Davis died in 1900. However, they buried Davis at a mission near Grouard, he said. Twelve years later, they had Davis' remains moved to a spot overlooking the Peace River and Mr. Anderson said he also dug the second grave. Today the tombstone stands as a tourist attraction. CALGARY (CP) A 20- year-old man who was arrested following a four hour shooting incident in southwest Calgary Tuesday was described Tuesday night by medical sources as "a desperate man crying out for help." Dallas Wittman was taken to hospital for mental ex- amination after a gunman fired about a dozen shots from an llth floor apartment in southwest Calgary. There were no injuries and police, ilid not return the gunman's fire. Wittman slashed his wrists twice in recent months to draw attention to himself, an Doctor's a dismissed EDMONTON (CP) The appeal division of the Alberta Supreme Court has dismissed an appeal by Edmonton gynecologist Dr. Douglas Ringrose, who sought to set aside a disciplinary report that recommended he be suspended from practice for one year. Mr. Justice D. C. Prowse said the doctor was told in June 1973 that he faced four charges alleging conduct un- becoming a medical prac- titioner and shortly after that was informed by the Alberta College of Physicians and Surgeons that he was suspend- ed until a disciplinary com- mittee had considered the charges. The suspension was later set aside by the supreme court which found the college's ex- ecutive committee had no power to make the order. The disciplinary report has yet to go to the college coun- cil, pending an outcome of Dr. Hingrose's appeal. Dr. Ringrose's action questioned the impartiality of a member of the organization's executive. Mr. Justice Prowse ruled the argument had no merit. official at Foothills Hospital here said in an interview. The man is suffering from Drain damage and is con- sidered to be retarded, said the official, who asked not to be identified. Wittman has no criminal record nor has he been held in any mental hospital. The official said Wittman's action was triggered by a gun- fight in Calgary Dec. 20 which left a police detective and a gunman dead and six police officers wounded. The medical source said the publicity given the shoot out gave Wittman the idea that he could draw attention to himself and his personal problems by recreating a similar incident. .Wittman surrendered to police after talking to Dr. Keith Pearce head of psy- chiatry at Foothills Hospital and the University of Calgary. The young man came down the elevator of the low in- come housing project with Calgary Police Inspector Er- nie Reimer, but Wittman refused to give police his load- ed .22 calibre rifle. He appeared to be very ner- vous and upset as he left the building and climbed into the rear seat of a police patrol car. Insp. Reimer drove the car to Foothills Hospital. He was joined in the car by Dr. Pearce. Wittman surrendered the weapon when he arrived at the hospital, said a witness. Dr. Pearce declined to dis- cuss the incident, but he credited police with avoiding another bloody confrontation. "I was tremendously im- pressed with Insp. Reimer's actions and his cool, calm said Dr. Pearce. The incident was markedly different than the Dee. 20 shoot out, which involved more than 200 police and an armored personnel carrier from Canadian Forces Base Calgary. Since the shooting, police have studied new tactics which could be used in such a situation and used some of them Tuesday.. Unlike the Dec. 20 shoot out. police officers were ordered by a senior police of- ficer to stay away from the area of the shooting unless they were specifically ordered to take part in the operation.

CALGARY (CP) Calgary public school trustees will publicly debate the acquisi- tion of a electronic security system Feb. 11.. Public school board chairman John Curran says a report recommending in- stallation of the computer controlled system must be looked at "very, very carefully." The system would include sophisticated acoustical sen- sors, fire and smoke detec- tors, motion detectors, and electronic door switches. The report recommended the system and said it would pay for itself in less than five years. The public school board paid in vandalism damage last year.
