Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 20, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, January 20, 1975 Free services will still be welcomed by the press OTTAWA (CP) The Parliamentary Press Gallery voted Saturday to continue accepting free services such as telephones, stationery and parking from the government. At its annual meeting, the J60-member gallery defeated by a wide margin a motion that would have obligated reporters and news organizations to pay their own way. The vote came after a lengthy debate during which many gallery members said they could not commit their employers to costs that had not been accurately deter- mined. A lesser motion to eliminate government-paid stationery with a gallery letterhead also was defeated. The meeting adjourned before another proposal, to endorse the principle of pay- ing for services, came to a vote. Terry Hargreaves, CBC radio bureau chief on Parlia- ment Hill, was elected gallery president, replacing Stewart MacLeod of The Canadian Press. Andre Ouimet of the Montreal Star was elected vice-president, Ken Pole of The Canadian Press, secretary, and Mike Duffy of Contemporary News, treasurer. Gail Scott, CTV; Mac John- ston, Thomson Newspapers; Jack Derouin, Contemporary News; Susan Reisler, United Press International, and Andre Bellemare, The Cana- dian Press, were elected directors. The debate on free services was the most contentious issue raised, the same as it was a year ago when the gallery approved a study of gallery costs borne by the government.

E3B, 4X1___________ Despite plentiful natural resources, Alaskans must or fuel ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) There are 26 trillion cubic feet of natural gas at Prudhoe Bay. About 25 per cent of U.S. recoverable oil reserves are there too. Millions of tons of coal lie waiting under Alaska's tundra flowers. Her rivers are mighty. But this January, many of her native citizens say they are being forced to choose between food and fuel because they can't afford both. A new dam is op- erating only sporadically. Cities are plagued by power outages, dimmed lights, un- plugged appliances and ice fog created by exhaust which comes from gasoline they cdn't afford either. "We're the future storehouse of energy for the said Fred Chiei, deputy regional ad- ministrator for the Federal Energy Administration The trans-Alaska pipeline's daily 1.2 million barrels of oil will start flowing in late 1977. The natural-gas pipeline still is on drawing boards. And there is only one working coal mine in the state and its employees have been on strike. So this winter's near-arctic temperatures in the interior and oil prices in the U.S. are hurting the "storehouse" of the U.S. Anchorage residents pay 39 cents a gallon for fuel oil. In Nome, the price is 55 cents. In Fort Yukon and Barrow, Aniak and Anaktuvik Pass, it's 70 and 80 cents a gallon if it's brought in by plane. And that doesn't include the deposit for the 55 gallon drum. "We've got severe problems in the bush country, not only on the price of the heating oil Alcoholism a major factor in most burn prone people BOSTON (AP) Doctors have put together what they say is the first extensive profile of adults who are "burn prone" and likely to become victims of fire. The person most likely to be burned is a middle-aged' woman with a history of smoking, alcoholism or drug abuse whose clothes or hair catch fire as she sits in an overstuffed easy chair or lies in bed, the doctors indicate. In a study published in this week's Journal of the American Medical Association, Drs. John MacArthur and Francis Moore report on 155 adult patients they have treated for burns at Boston's Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in almost a decade. The study showed that about half of these patients showed a predisposition to burning. And in the cases of more- severe burns, this figure was 57 per cent. Alcoholism, particularly when combined with smoking, led the list of predisposing factors found in the study, with senility, psychiatric dis- orders, neurological malfunc- tions and physical im- pairments following. People dazed by drugs, in- cluding sedatives and opiates, or slowed by alcohol, age, physical disability or mental illness don't appear to react well in a fire emergency, the study indicated. An inability to respond to this challenge thereby can Relations resumed HAVANA (Reuter) Cuba and West Germany have re- sumed full diplomatic relations, an official state- ment in the Communist party newspaper, Granma, said Saturday. contribute to the nature and extent of the injury. The study found that women, whether predisposed to burns or normal, were more likely to get burned than men in their same group. And also women were more likely than men to have severe, ex- tensive burns that caused death. The report said the patient's own home is the site of injury in 76 per cent of the cases, and 15 per cent were injured in nursing homes, hospitals and mental institutions. Burn-prone persons should not be permitted to use a flame-type stove, light a fire or to smoke unattended since these routine functions might be dangerous to them, the study said. "Quite characteristically, the patient is sitting in an overstuffed chair, smoking, drinking and watching television" when the fire oc- curs, the doctors said of the commonplace dangers.

Many of the Eskimos and Indians in the bush earn a meagre living by fishing and trapping. Dog mushing is replacing the snow machines which replaced the huskies just a few years back. "From what I've seen up there in the villages, I would say about 99 per cent of the people are go- ing back to one observer said. But for city folks who drive, the picture is also grim. "Right now, it costs 70 cents a gallon for premium and 65 cents for regular said Lowell Nelson, head of the Alaska Petroleum Dealers Association. "In six months we're going to see the price go to a dollar a gallon right here in Anchorage." A U.S. gallon is five-sixths of a Canadian gallon. To heat well-insulated resi- dences with fuel oil in Alaska's urban areas, the price tag is between ?800 and a year. Compared with this year's prices, oil in 1974 was 32 cents a gallon. Two years ago it was 23 cents, and in 1953 it was 20 cents. The only thing that seems to be plentiful is natural gas, and Man awarded million in damages for accident MILWAUKEE, Wis.' (Reuter) Nearly million in damages has been awarded to a man paralysed in an acci- dent blamed on a defect in his Volkswagen. Lawrence Totsky, 29, was granted for injuries suffered when his car ran off a highway in April, 1971. Investigators said they found a small chunk of concrete in the steering gearbox which allegedly had been sealed in at the factory. Co-defendants in the six- week trial were Volkswagenwerk Ak- tiengesellschaft of Wolfsburg, West Germany, Volkswagen of American Inc., Inglewood Cliffs, N.J., and Concours Mo- tors Inc., a Milwaukee VW dealer. Totsky is a quadruplegic and has severe impairment of his breathing, bladder and bowel functions and is unable to sense pain, a condition that greatly increases the danger of even minor infec- tions, said testimony during the trial. its use is limited to the south central portion of the state. It .costs about a month to use the natural gas to keep the thermostats set at 68 or 70 de- grees. Geologists estimate coal ly- ing beneath the rolling treeless plains of Alaska make it one of the state's most-plentiful resources. But the Usibelli coal mine at Healy, which produces about tons a year, was closed last week by a miners' strike. TOWERS DOWNED In Juneau, the new Snetti- sham Dam 25 miles to the south has been operating only sporadically since it went on line nine months ago. The power generated by a harness- ed mountain lake has been un- available because high winds knocked down transmission towers. After those were repaired, the winds shorted out tran- sformers so the Juneau utility still is dependent on diesel generators and smaller hydro dams in the area to keep the state capital lit and warm. All the while, the giant trucks are highballing along the roadways carrying 48-inch pipe headed north. The Texas gas men and the Canadian gas men are meeting with govern- ment experts and everybody is talking about pipelines. There are even stirrings about controlling, someday, all the potential power which could be generated by the volcanoes out on the lonely Aleutian chain. Meanwhile, in the bush, it's a cold January. fires tone STORES TRACTION... GUARANTEED TO GO OR WE PAY THE TOW. Ttrestone SNOW CHAMP A big, wide drift- fighting tire with super-husky nylon strength!
