Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 15, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, January 15, 197S Dateline Alberta Smoke detectors useless EDMONTON (CP) A city electronics engineer said Tuesday that a city bylaw re- quiring the installation of smoke detectors in apartment buildings should be repealed because the units are useless in detecting carbon monoxide gas and pose a possible radia- tion hazard. J. M. Green, president of Green, Michaels and Associates consulting engineers, said three times as many city residents died from carbon' monoxide poisoning last year as from all other fire-related causes. "Unfor- tunately, the smoke detectors specified in the bylaw do not possess any sensitivity to this invisible killer." Speed-limit cut opposed EDMONTON (CP) Many Alberta motorists want increased driver education but oppose reductions in highway speed limits, says a survey conducted by a private insurance company. The poll, conducted by Ox- ford Insurance Agencies Ltd., showed a large majority wanl increased emphasis on defen- sive driving. Of that group, 914 favored making driver training part of the school curriculum while 139 were op- posed.

NIGHTLY LOUNGE ENTERTAINMENT Imperial wizard committed CALGARY (CP) The im- perial wizard of the Alberta branch of the Ku Klux Klan has been committed to stand triul in Alberta Supreme Court on a charge of criminal negligence causing the death of a Mexican immigrant. Tearlach (Charlie) Dun- sford Mac A Phearsoin, 25, of Calgary, was charged after Elias Aguilar Ramirez, 23, of Santa Rosa, Mexico, was found shot to death in Mac A Phearsoin's home last Sept. 12. Police found a .22-calibre revolver at the scene. The commitment to trial was ordered by Provincial Judge Gary Cioni Tuesday at the end of preliminary hearings which began Dec. 17. Soviet nuclear strike might kill six million WASHINGTON (Reuter) -ThePen- tagon calculates that a Soviet nuclear strike at United States military facilities would kill from to six million people. Those losses for "selective" atomic strikes compare with a total of 95 million to 100 million deaths in a possi- ble Soviet nuclear attack against in- dustrial urban centres. The figures were provided to Congress by Defence Secretary James Schlesinger in one of the most detailed projections of its kind yet made public! A censored version of Schlesinger's report, given in secret Sept. 11 the Senate foreign relations com- mittee's arms control panel, was released Tuesday night. Schlesinger said the risk of Soviet selective strikes is slim because of pre- sent technological limitations, but still greater than that of an all-out assault of cities. "I find it difficult to conceive of the circumstances under which either side would attack the urban industrial base of the other out of the he said. "It just does not make sense, unless a government has gone mad." Schlesinger said the Soviet Union might choose in a crisis to stage a selective strike in hopes of not provok- ing a big U.S. counterblow, which could kill 100 million Soviet citizens. He gave the following estimates of the number of people likely to die in blasts and fallout under differing target systems chosen by the Soviet Union. ballistic missile sites alone, one million. 45 Strategic Air Command bases, submarine support bases, naval shipyards and other navy facilities, The losses, Schlesinger said, could be multiplied two or three times if, for ex- ample, the Soviet Union chose to burst its weapons on the ground rather than in the air, thus causing widespread radioactive contamination. Therefore, a combined Soviet assault on all U.S. military target systems would under the worse circumstances drive deaths towards the five million to six million range. Schlesinger's estimates served to .shore up his argument that U.S. targeting policy ought to be flexible enough to respond to low-scale as well is massive attacks. Monetary accords reached WASHINGTON (CP) Fi- nance ministers from 10 of the richest Western countries ap- pear to have hammered out basic accords Tuesday on how lu cope with the world's oil-in- flated economic problems. But they withheld details until they can enlist the agree- ment of their counterparts from the less-wealthy countries. "There's a good chance we'll work this said Finance Minister John Turner of Canada, speaking about a bubbling dispute between the United States and the Euro- pean Common Market over the type of international lending facility needed to sus- tain countries threatened by rising prices for oil and other commodities.

'Pepsi Cola Ho. 1 Selling Soft Drink In Chinook Country" Matayoshi Ohira, who was chairman of the 10-country meeting, said differences on the major topics up for discus- sion "have been considerably reduced." And Jack Bennett, U.S. un- der-secretary of the Treasury, reported that "that we will have a package to announce" when the current round of international monetary dis- cussions ends later this week. The basis of the main com- promise, as outlined at a series of news conferences after the day's meeting, ap- peared to be a willingness by the United States to accept a lending program pressed by the Europeans and most other countries. In return, there would be agreement on a U.S.- sponsored plan for the wealthier countries to insure But the U.S. agreed to accept the Europeans' plan if it were on a more modest scale than the Europeans had proposed. The 10 countries' deputy fi- nance ministers are to meet during the next two days to draft a communique. Meanwhile, the next stage in the complex negotiations is to start today when the body known as the interim com- mittee of the Can- ada's Turner in the meets to try to work out agreements that all 126 members of the IMF can sign. .Known as the Group of although the membership cov- ers more than 75 less- developed poorer nations issued a com- munique insisting that they be consulted on international themselves against economic monetary questions and that collapse. flows of aid be increased. 747 JUMBO SIGHTS.
