Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Mmday, January 24, THE LETHKIDGI HIRA10 13 Many schools closed Flu kills 843 in U.S. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS An outbreak of flu has forced the closing of schools in many parts of the United and has hampered operations of state government in South Da- kota. But officials say it is not as severe as the siege three winters ago. As the virus has affected mainly children, many hospitals have allowed only adults to visit flu patents and have restricted visiting hours to curb Uie spread of the illness. Most of the 843 persons the National Centre for Disease Control says have been lulled by the flu this winter, however, were old or chronically ill. The AL MYCHASIW HAY REALTY LTD.

Many of the affected areas have been hit by the Hong Kong flu, whch struck many areas of the United States In 1968-1969 and killed persons. In other areas milder types of flu have been reported. SOME STILL IMMUNE Absenteeism generally has been lower among workers than school children, and health offl. cials say this indicates many adults who caught the virus three years ago still are im ing. A telephone voice intro- duced as Hughes told reporters Jan. 9 that he never had mel Irving. The letter from Hie Swiss Credit Bank of Zurich, disclosed during court proceedings here, said the cheques from Mc- Graw Hill "were not cashed by Mr. Howard R. Hughes, the owner of the Hughes Tool Co. of Houston, Tex., nor were they credited to an account of Mr. H. H. Hughes at our bank." Informed about the bank let- ter, McGraw-Hill and Life mag- azine issued a joint statement saying: "The matter is a com- plicated one" and declined fur- ther comment pending their own investigation. PUBLICATION DELAYED McGraw-Hill planned to pub- lish the Irving book March 10, and Life planned to release it in serial form beginning Feb. 11. Both have set back these dates indefinitely. In another development here, state Supreme 'Court Jus- tice Gerald Culpin temporarily barred further distribution of a second purported autobiography of Hughes. However, Culpin said he would take no more action on a motion to enjoin permanently distribution of the book, My Life and Opinions, without an affida- vit from Hughes affirming that be did not authorize the mate- rial. A lawyer for the publishers, Hippocrene Books Inc., said about copies of the pur- ported Hughes memoirs, edited by Robert P. Eaton, already have been sold. Excerpts from the book appear in the current edition of the Ladies Home Journal. The court action came as part of a series of legal battles mounted by Rosemont Enter- prises Inc., a Nevada corpora- tion that claims to have ob- tained from Hughes exclusive rights to publish autobiogra- phical material. ZURICH (Reuter) Zurich legal authorities have made contact with Interpol over what is believed to be a possible swindle concerning payment for the purported biography of bil- lionaire Howard Hughes, relia- ble sources said today. The district attorney's office in Zurich has issued interna- tional warrants through Interpol to trace a number of persons engaged in opening a Zurich bank account Into which for the biography was paid, they reported. It was not clear whether these were arrest warrants or letters sent through Interpol asking other national police forces to enquire into this case. The district attorney in charge of the case said that he has "absolutely no comment" to make on this matter. But police here said the dis- sh store if you need money.

Chick (In flout book hi yow ntinrt Nlifw afflci. trict tUorney's office has begun an Inquiry into the identity of the person who opened an ac- count at the Swiss Credit Bank in the name of H. R. Hughes. The sources declined to say who was named in the warrants from the Zurich authorities but they indicated that the author of the biography, writer Clifford Irving, was not among them. Resignation of labor board urged EDMONTON (CP) An berta labor leader has called for the resignation of the prov- ince's Industrial Labor Rela- tions Board. Labor Minister Bert Hohol says he will take no'action on a letter he received in whch Ame Christensen of Edmonton, presi- dent of Local 1-207 of the Inter- national Woodworkers of Amer- ica, made the demand. Mr. Christensen's letter said his union was disturbed that in the last few years the board de- nied it bargaining rights for for- est products industry em- ployees. The board "has found some way to refuse certification to us no matter what majority of a bargaining unit we have as the letter said. Mr. Cbristensen said in an in. terview that board chairman Bob d'Esterre had a personal grudge against the union and had held "radical anti labor views" while employed as per- sonnel manager of a major Ed- monton firm. The board chairman declined to comment on Mr. Christen- sen's charges except to say they were fabricated "of whole cloth." Mr. Chrisiensen said the board's present course" will ef- fectively destroy the entire la- bor movement in Alberta" and make it a tool of large corpora- tions. He said that in the last sev- eral years five applications for certification have been re- fused. But Mr. Hohol said that of six applications received In the last four years, three were with- drawn by the union. Tax-sliaring proposal will die EDMONTON (CP) A tax sharing proposal on industrial property suggested by the for- mer Social Credit government isn't likely to be brought up at the next session of the legisU- true, says Municipal Affairs Minister Dave Russell. The Progressive Conservative minister said the general reac- tion to the proposal, presented as a bill at the last session but held for a one year study, is that it be left to die. The tax-sharing proposal would have split property taxation paid by industry among the Al- berta municipalities on a pro- portional basis rather than al- lowing a local government with a high concentration of industry to retain tax revenues at the expense of a neighboring com- munity. Mr. Russell said a committee of government members under chairman Roy Fan-en is looking at the whole question of munici- pal provincial financing.
