Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Judge criticizes Stampede saloon CALGARY (CP) - An Alberta Supreme Court justice has criticized the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede boatd for operating a large beer saloon during the Stampede days. Mr. Justice H. J. MacDonald made the remarks after he acquitted Donald Cameron, a security , guard employed in the Stampede Saloon, of a charge of assault causing bodily harm. Mr. Justice MacDonald said he was satisfiied that Cameron did not use excessive force when he evicted Garth Miller of Calgary, the plaintiff, from the saloon last July 9. Cameron said he was told to remove Miller and his friends from the saloon because they were throwing beer onto other tables and were using untoward language. Thurwiay, January 17, 1974 - THE LETHBRIDQg HERALD -7 Art treasures controls planned OTTAWA (CP) - The federal government is moving to stop the export of national treasures, and will encourage the return to Canada of art historic artifacts which already have gone abroad. Secretary of State Hugh Faulkner announced Wednesday that legislation will be introduced at the next session of Parliament to impose export licence control on the sale of art treasures, patterned on controls existing in Britain and France. Consultations will be held with provincial governments on details of the plan, but in effect it will mean that an export permit will be required to ship abroad any work of art or historical artifact over a certain age or value. The age and value limits still are to be decided. If, for instance, you want to sell a Rembrandt or Krieghoff painting abroad, you will not be able to ship it.without an export licence. The licence won't be granted until efforts are made to find a buyer in Canada, either privately or publicly, say an art gallery. Mr. Faulkner's announcement said exports will be stopped by customs officers, who will refer cases to local experts and, in some cases, to an independent review board to determine whether the art or artifact is "an object of sufficient importance to be considered a national treasure." During the time that the export permit is delayed, "interested Canadian public authorities and institutions" can consider buying your Rembrandt or Krieghoff "at fair market prices." If they decide not to buy, the export permit will be granted and the object will be free to leave the country legally. Mr. Faulkner said the details will be worked out to ensure the co-operation of art dealers and collectors. Tax incentives will be provided for Canadians to sell their treasures to Canadian institutions. The minister said the new regulations will contain no hint of confiscation, and only important objects "of high cultural significance" which have been in Canada long enough to be considered national treasures are to be involved. The regulations will not affect most people^s family life. It is aimed primarily at such private collections as those of the late Sir William van Home, Montreal railway tycoon, whose art treasurers have been sold in London and New York. Mr. Faulkner said the government will earmark funds to buy art treasures threatened by export, and to buy back from foreign sources art treasures that should be repatriated. The government had such a fund, about |2 million, for some years. An official said the new fund will be sufficient to encourage art galleries and museums across the country to acquire Canadian art treasures that are offered for sale abroad, but the galleries and museums will be required to put up a fair share of their own money. Britain and France have similar regulations. The British count as national treasures anything that is IQO years old.

Pay rates said too low TORONTO (CP) - Former federal manpower minister . Bryce Mackasey says a guaranteed annual income and higher minimum wage rates- would help end many complaints about the unemployment insurance program. Mr. Mackasey, responsible for 1971 Unemployment Insurance Act revisions that increased benefits and eased qualifications, told a public meeting employers who say they can't get enough workers don't pay high enough wages. People who abuse unemployment insurance may be classed with "a very few doctors who rip off medicare, or lawyers singled out by the bar association for overcharging, the abuse of some manufacturers who ... use loopholes in the tax laws to reduce corporate taxes," he said. Mr. Mackasey, Liberal MP for Montreal Verdun, said a guaranteed annual income might be a way of making unemployment insurance conform with social welfare policy. Keith Rapsey, president of the Canadian Manufacturers Association, told the meeting unemployment insurance benefits have tripled in the last three years. CJOC proudly presents in person  Plus ...

Soviet reporter barred OTTAWA (CP) - The government has rejected a Soviet reporter's application to return to Canada because he carried out activities unrelated to his work as a journalist, an external affairs department official said Wednesday. Konstantin Gueivandov had worked at the parliamentary press gallery for the Soviet newspaper Pravda for about two years before returning home on leave last September. The department has refused to issue him a visa to re-enter Canada. The official refused to say whether Mr. Gueivandov was a spy: "We wouldn't use any three-letter words." MUSIC BANNED ATHENS (Reuter) - The Greek government has banned the music and songs of Greek composer loannis Markopoulos from being heard on radio and television, the composer told foreign reporters Thursday. Markopoulos, 35, said he had been informed of the ban by his recording company. But the Soviet embassy has been told he cannot return "because some of his activities, which in no way could be related to his work as a professional journalist, had been a source, of concern to the Canadian authorities."
