Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 19, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THI irrHMIDGE HIRAID Wtdnantay, Jflnuory 1971 Second Viet massacre claimed by reporter NEW YORK (AP) The United States Army has testi- mony that twice as many Viet- namese men, women and chil- dren were killed by U.S. troops in the area of My Lai, South Vietnam, than it has so far pub licly acknowledged, says Sey mour Hersh, the reporter wh first broke the massacre story. Secret testimony that a sec ond massacre took place at GETS DETENTION ORDERS IN RHODESIA Gorfield Todd, 63, former prime minister of Southern Rhodesia in the late 1950s, and his 28-year-old daughter Judy were lerved detention orders by Rhodeiian police Tuesday.

Judge rules in favor of CN lodge employees EDMONTON (CP) An Al- berta Supreme Court judge Tuesday ruled the Canada Labor Relations Board has no jurisdiction over employees of Canadian National Railways at Jasper Park Lodge in Jasper National Park.

Ask About The NEW INVISIBLE MULTIFOCAL LENS (MULTILUX) place for the union to apply for certification was through a sec- tion of the Alberta Labor Act. His 22-page written judgment was handed down following a one-day hearing last month in which the railway challenged the Canada Labor Relations Board ruling that it possessed jurisdiction over the lodge em- ployees under the Canadian Na- tional Railways Act. At that time, CN employees at the lodge earned an hour, the provincial minimum wage. The railway said It did not have to pay the federal minimum wage of an hour because the workers were under provin- cial jurisdiction. SITUATION REVERSED A spokesman for the railway said Tuesday there was no prob- lem for many years when the minimum provincial wage was above that required under fed- eral legislation. He said there would be no dif- ficulty for the union if it wanted to be certified under the Alberta Labor Act. Union spokesmen were not available Tuesday night. Justice Minister John Turner said a year ago that the govern- ment's action against the rail- way for not paying federal mini- mum wages in six hotels must await the outcome of the Al- berta case. A spokesman for the Canada Labor Relations board said he convinced the decision would be appealed. An appeal could be heard by the appellate division of the Al- berta Supreme Court and could go on to the Supreme Court of Canada, he said. Olson cancels engagement OTTAWA (CP) Agriculture Minister H.

The post office computer knows and the mail will reach the proper destination. And the computer knows be- cause in the new postal code 0 is always zero and 1 is always one. Introduction of the postal code began in the capital last April. It reached Manitoba last fall and starts in Saskat- chewan later this month and in Alberta in the spring.

Mr. Dowling was comment- ing on a statement by J. G. Nelson, president of the Na- tional and Provincial Parks Association of Canada. Mr. Nelson said the popular areas of both parks already are overcrowded and over- used. Mr. Nelson has asked the fe- deral government to persuade Alberta and British Columbia, travel agencies and Canadian airlines to abstain from pub- licizing the parks. He has said it is impossible to preserve the natural values of national parks and make them into international play- grounds at the same time. and Montreal late in 1973. All of Ontario and Quebec will have it by then and British Columbia and the Atlantic provinces will complete the picture in 1974. At that time, every address In Canada will have a postal code comprising three letters and three numbers. WILL LAST 100 YEARS It's just as well to get used to your own code when it reaches you because Gerald Fultz, chief of the post office's coding and mechanization branch, estimates the code now being introduced across the country will endure for at least 100 years. The code is a combination of three numbers and three letters. The combination de- notes a city or district, an area within that city or dis- trict, the street and the block on that street. Mr. Fultz said that if only numbers bad been employed the code might have been forced to use eight or nine numbers, almost impossible to remember. Combinations of three letters and three num- bers are much easier to re- member, he said. When all Canada Is coded, machines will sort the mail faster than human hands. Mr. Fultz said Toronto and Montreal now are so big that it is impossible for human sorters to remember all streets or even districts. "In three to four years, the code will become a normal part of everybody's he said.
