Specially priced Lady Fair yarns and craft supplies for todays creative woman... at Eaton's Doctor claims police ordered rectal test Dateline Alberta Noise study announced EDMONTON (CP) A city doctor testified in Alberta Supreme Court Monday he thought police officers could authorize a rectal examina- tion of a person suspected of carrying drugs in his anus. Dr: David Antoneko was the first defence witness in a civil case brought by Russell Reynen, who is serving an eight year prison term for possession of heroin for the purpose .of trafficking. Mr. Reynen is seeking general damges of from Dr. Antoneko as well as general .damages and special damages from the four police officers he has named as defendants. Dr. Antoneko said the four policemen RCMP con- stables Louis Hudon and Jamie Graham and city police detectives Noel Day and Norman Strausz brought Mr. Reynen into the emergency room of Misercor- dia Hospital on June 20, 1973, and asked him to perform a rectal examination. "I believed with the instruc- tions given to me by the police officers, I didn't need the con- sent of Mr. Dr. An- toneko told the court. Transcripts from an earlier examination for discovery in the case read into evidence by Burke Barker, Mr. Reynen's lawyer quoted the doctor as saying that he asked police officers if the proposed examination was legal. "I believe they stated that under the Narcotics Control Act they could empower me to conduct this Dr. Antoneko said. He said that during the rec- tal examination, which involv- ed the insertion of a sigmoidoscope device six inches into the anus, he found two red condoms and removed them. Mr. Reynen had earlier testified the condoms contain- ed a total of'50 capsules of heroin he had purchased in Vancouver. He said he made the trip to buy heroin because he was a user, and that he travelled with a man named Gerald Moxam who purchas- ed the airplane tickets. One of the police officers later said he discovered Mr. Reynen's ticket had been bought in the name of a Mr. Barker. Mr. Reynen said that following his arrest in Edmon- ton, he submitted to the rectal examination only because "I thought I didn't have any other choice." Earlier in the day, Mr. Justice H. J. MacDonald had dismissed an application on behalf of Dr. Antoneko and Mr. Day to have the case against them dismissed as dis- closing no cause of action. Arguing against the motion, Mr. Barker told court the only similar Canadian case was a 1972 application in Quebec. In that case, the crown received a search warrant authorizing a doctor to operate on a man in hope of recovering a bullet, which the crown said would assist in proving the man's in- volvement in a robbery. A Quebec high court over- turned the search warrant, saying Canadian law did not permit such explorations into the human body. The trial continues Tuesday. EDMONTON A study of noise will be made on a province wide basis, it was announced Monday. Highways Minister Clarence Copithorne, Calgary Mayor Rod Sykes and Ed- monton Mayor Bill Hawrelak, in a joint announcement, said a contract for the study has been awarded to a consortium of consultants. The group is headed by De Leuw Gather Canada Ltd., and the highways and transport department will manage the study with representatives from the two major cities serving on a steering com- mittee. Airline passenger jailed CALGARY (CP) A 51 year old Lebanese businessman now living in Calgary was jailed for nine months Monday after an Alberta Supreme Court judge said he tried to carry the tools of a "hit man" aboard a Pacific Western Airlines jetliner. Reda Zeid Karame, operator of a Revslstoke, B.C., restaurant, was arrested at the airport after a routine security check found a loaded revolver in his brief- case. Karame denied knowledge of the gun but Mr. Justice Frank Quigley rejected the claim, saying it was "obvious that this man knew he had the gun and other items of a hit man in his briefcase."

Police said two police of- ficers chased a speeding car down Macleod Trail Sunday after police were tipped that the driver was a wanted man who was considered dangerous and probably armed. The speeding car stalled after turning a corner, but the driver started the engine and tried to run down one of the of- ficers as the policemen approached the vehicle on foot.

The minister, taking a long- term view, also said in an interview that some day he would like to see a person military establishment with the reserve and militia making up for numbers lack- ing in the regular forces. He was expressing support for moves started in last week's meeting of the Conference of Defence Associations for creation of a -eommittee that would en- courage business support of reserve activities. Called the National Com- mittee for Employer Support for Reserve Forces, and pat- terned after a similar com- mittee successfully operating in the United States, the com- mittee would seek time off for employees wishing to take re- serve and militia training. The time off would be in addition to annual vacation time. The creation and operation of the committee would re- quire some government financing and Mr. Richardspn has indicated considerable enthusiasm for the whole concept. He said Monday that some time in the future there could be legislation, as there is else- where, making time off for re- serve activities mandatory. He said he has not yet refined his ideas, and thus cannot say how much leave should be granted. At present there are about regulars in the Cana- dian Armed Forces, a reduc- tion of about from the effective strength a year ago. There also are about reservists, an increase of 500 over a year ago when the government started spending more money and began paying more attention to them. The total now is about The minister noted that more use is being made of the are used in NATO and he did not foresee where they would take over much of Canada's North American air defence commitment as reserves have in the U.S. Alberta doctors vote on payments proposal EDMONTON (CP) Alberta doctors will vote this month on accepting a government proposed adjustment of a 6.5 per cent increase on payments made to them under the province's medical care insurance program.

OTTAWA (CP) Voting for the first elected 11- member producers' advisory committee to the wheat board will be held April 4 to 21, it was announced Monday. About Prairie grain producers will be eligible to vote and will have to submit nominations by Feb. 24, said a statement released by the of- fice of Otto Lang, minister responsible for the wheat hoard. There already is an ad- visory board appointed by the government, but producers have said they don't feel properly represented by it. The government says the elec- tion of a producers' com- mittee should give grain farmers better input into the wheat agency that markets their grain. The statement said that any person listed in a 1974-75 grain delivery permit book as a pro- ducer or interested party is eligible for nomination. The three Prairie provinces have been divided into 11 dis- tricts for the election, with one representative to be .elected from each district. Candidates must have the signatures of 25 regular per- mit book holders in hi.s or her district and submit a deposit. The deposit will be returned if a candidate receives 50 per cent of the winning candidate's vote or at least 15 per cent of all votes cast in the district. A booklet outlining the voting procedures is being mailed to Prairie grain producers. NEW GULF MANAGER TORONTO (CP) J. E. Devai has been appointed manager of pipeline operations in the supply and transportation department of Gulf Oil Canada Ltd. Mr. Devai was formerly superintendent of operations at the company's Clarkson, Ont., refinery. OTTAWA (CP) An export permit for shipment of nuclear equipment to India has been officially cancelled, a spokesman for the depart- ment of industry, trade and commerce said Monday. Department officials said the cancellation was really "only a formal move" since all such shipments were halted last May when India exploded a nuclear bomb. The permit covered an esti- mated million order for compressors used in a heavy water plant. The equipment was manufactured by Allis- Chalmers Canada Ltd. of Montreal. The federal government stopped nuclear exports pending a review of safeguards on the use of such equipment. The Indian bomb was built from plutonium turned out by a research reac- tor built in 1956 with Cana- dian aid. A new federal policy an- nounced last month requires buyers to sign agreements forbidding use of either the equipment or technology in manufacturing explosives! Shipments to India, the gov- ernment said, would not resume until the country agreed to accept the safeguards system.

The bank agreed to take the shares after dis- cussions with the Bonn government, worried by re- cent share purchases by oil- producing Middle East states. Healing Substance...
