Inquest told gas lines mixed 12 days after death January at, 1974 TNI UTHMUOOl HMAL0 23 SUDBURY, Ont. (CP) Anesthetic was coming out of oxygen outlets 12 days after doctors reported they suspected crossed gas lines following the death of a patient, Sudbury General Hospital's chief anesthetist has testified. Dr. Joseph Fyfe told an in- quest Monday he was "floored" by the Sept. 19 dis- covery in four rooms of a new wing, including the one in which six-year-old Catherine Dominic died Sept. 7. "I couldn't believe what I Dr. Fyfe said in the first testimony in six days of hearings that an apparently misconnected section of the gas-supply system had been in use after the death of the girl. The inquest is also investigating 22 other deaths. Catherine was given anes- thetic in the special- procedures room for the setting of a broken arm. Evidence week indicated she died almost immediately after the room's oxygen unit emitted nitrous oxide. The special-procedures room was closed the same day, but a week later an ad- ministrative memo notified the staff that it was reopening. The day of re- opening was not given in evi- dence. ASKED FOR CHECK Dr. Fyfe said he requested Sudbury Coroner Marcel Pre- vost to check the gas system and the gas machine used on the Dominic girl the day after she died. He did this as a "rou- tine matter because an in- quest was to be held." He said he assumed the tests would be made but never followed up on the request. He asked for but received OAKVILLE, Ont. (CP) The attorney-general's office does not plan to extradite an American who, when living here last year, was sent by mistake a bank draft after he had requested Halton regional police said Monday. Police said lawyers for James Garrett, 24, now living back home in Lynchburg, Va., and the Oakville branch of the Bank of Nova Scotia have negotiated a deal for the return of the remaining They said they didn't know the outcome of the talks. They said Garrett, a former Oakville car salesman, spent in two months of travel to Montreal, Los Angeles, Hawaii, Miami and New York. Although Garrett's father in Lynchburg said the bank has "dropped all the po- lice here said they issued a warrant for Garrett's arrest on a charge of theft after the error .was realized and that Garrett risks arrest if he returns to Canada. It all started last October when Garrett was working for Robert Kerr, owner of an Oak- ville car agency. After a day of apartment hunting, the Vietnam war veteran asked his mother in Virginia to send him DRAFT READY The Oakville branch of the bank later told Garrett there was a bank draft for him of The bank, not realizing a mistake had been made by the Chase Manhattan Bank in New York, paid out in Canadian bills and in United States funds. It also gave out a draft for the balance and that was cash- ed in Montreal. A week later the error was realized and police in Oakville issued the warrant for Garrett's arrest. Meanwhile, police in Charlottesville, Va., held a warrant for Garrett's arrest for interstate transportation of stolen goods, involving a Canadian MPs attend conference STRASBOURG, France (CP) A Canadian parliamentary group has arrived here to join parliamentarians from the United States and 17 European countries in a discussion of relations between Europe and North America. Gerald Baldwin, one of the Canadian.members of Parlia- ment who arrived Monday, said the Canadians and Americans will participate in an energy debate to be initiated by a leading representative of the Paris- based Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development The Canadians are treating the Strasbourg meeting as an opportunity to strengthen con- sultation channels with Euro- pean parliamentarians. Baldwin. Progressive Conservative member for Peace River, said he hopes transatlantic consultations can be institutionalized. FIND OLD FORT SAN FRANCISCO (Reuter) The scanty ruins of a fort believed built by English ex- plorer Sir Francis Drake 400 years ago have been found on the California coast about 20 miles north of San Francisco. The two historians who dis- covered the fort, at the small community of Bolinas near what now is known as Drakes Bay, say it probably is the oldest English-built stractare in North America. rental car that allegedly was not returned to an agency. Garrett surrendered to Charlottesville police Dec. 22. Virginia police said he is free on bail on the U.S. charge, which is likely to be heard next week. On the Canadian charge, Virginia police said: "It's up to the Canadian au- thorities and they haven't done anything yet." Services study starts A study of emergency ser- vices rejected last summer for the entire Oldman River region begins this week with an examination of the services in the immediate Lethbridge district. The study, which will also look at library and solid-waste disposal services in the area, is funded by the provincial government's Task Force on Urbanization and the Future and the five municipalities, including the City of Lethbridge, in the study area. Jay Simons, advisor to the project and planner with the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission, the body which initiated the study, said ambulance and fire protection coverage varies widely in the district. Some areas are served by several municipalities, while other areas are not covered at all, he said. The idea for the project came up as the commission staff was working on a draft of the preliminary regional plan and was first proposed for the entire planning region. Municipalities on the commis- sion vetoed the study in August, saying that enough data had been collected and what was needed now was ac- tion. But the city, Lethbridge County, and the Towns of Nobleford, Picture Butte and Coaldale remained interested and it was decided to carry on the study for the smaller area. In a broad sense, Mr. Simons said, the study will be done for the whole region, but will focus primarily on the Lethbridge sub-region. At the end of the nine-month study, recommendations will be made to the municipalities involved on how the services could be improved. Convention set for teachers The Alberta Teachers Association convention for teachers in Southwestern Alberta will be held in Lethbridge Feb. 21 and 22. The convention is designed to provide teachers with the opportunity to discuss new ideas in education, keep in- formed of new developments in various areas of general interest and examine specific subject areas. GOVERNMENT GETS OIL CARACAS (AP) The Ve- nezuelan government will begin receiving barrels a day of crude oil from foreign oil companies operating here as royalty payments effective April 18. The government or- dered the companies to hand over 18 per cent of their royal- ty payments in kind instead of cash beginning in April. Earlier, Dr. Richard Sloan testified he received a memo dated Sept. 14 informing him that the special-procedures room was being brought back into service. He said he believed Catherine was the first patient to be treated in the room where she died. Dr. Fyfe said he was advis- ed that on Sept. 18, four days after the reopening notification, a patient in the room suddenly turned blue when given supposedly pure oxygen to speed his awakening from anesthesia, the same thing that happened to Miss Dominic. When the oxygen mask was taken off the patient's face, he began to recover. DOCTOR BLUE TOO Dr. Fyfe said that on the next day he connected a face mask to the same oxygen out- let and tested the gas on himself. He became dizzy after about five breaths and another doctor told him he was turning blue. Tests the next day showed nitroux oxide present at oxygen outlets in four rooms. Kierans predicts flat year OTTAWA (CP) Canada likely will not experience any real economic growth this year, former Liberal cabinet minister Eric Kierans said in a television interview Mon- day. He said there will not be any real growth in Japan, Europe or Britain this year and no more than one-per-cent real growth in the United States. "So how can we have five-to six-per-cent growth? It's just not possible. I think we're go- ing to be flat this year. "We trade with them so much and there's just no way." Mr. Kierans, now an economics teacher at McGill University in Montreal, said Finance Minister John Turner is basing some of his growth projections on a 21-to 23.5-per- cent increase in capital expen- ditures. He said the figure likely will be 12 to 14 per cent this year. Mr. Kierans, who resigned as communications minister three years ago, said he thinks the minority Liberal govern- ment is doing a better job than if it had been elected with a majority in 1972. "They've at least been open. They've amended a great many of their policies.
