The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta M 1t74 TNI LITMMHMI HWALO Couple hopes someone's taking care of Tommy MODESTO, Calif. (AP) Thomas and Frances Lauver hope their infant son, Tommy, kidnapped one year ago, is with good people who care for him. The Lauvers realize they probably will never see their son again. Tommy was kidna at knife-point before bis first by a man on Jan. one moot birthday. But the couple's despair is tempered by the hope that Tommy was abducted for a couple unable to adopt a child, and therefore is still healthy and unharmed. Clues to the fate of the Lauver's only child have been slim, without even fingerprints of the child to check against. But tips have been plentiful, reaching the sheriff's office at a clip of 30 to 40 a day at first, then tapering off before a resurgence this week attributed to local publicity over the anniversary of the abduc- tion. We haven't forgotten about it; we work on it con- said Chief Sheriff's Deputy Lynn Wood in an interview. "A couple of leads we're working on now look pretty good and then faded away." Wood pledged that "it will be an open file until it is but admitted: "The longer it goes, the harder it gets." Detective Wes Williams says he believes Tommy is alive despite the lack of proof. He bases his theory on what he described as an increase in kidnappings for adoptions. The kidnapping occurred as Mrs. Lauver was about to drive away from a store parking lot with Tommy. The kidnapper jumped in, pushed a knife against her side and made her slide across the seat. He drove a cir- cuitous route, then forced her to leave the car, which was found abandoned later. Mrs. Lauver said the man took her address and told her the baby would be returned safely if she didn't call the police.

London has greenery Moscow has a law Fighting those big city blues OTTAWA (CP) Postmaster General Andre Ouellet said at the weekend about 2.5 million Olympic coins will distributed in Canada between the end of this month and mid-April. He toM a news conterence the production of the and coins will fill a backlog of orders from banks, coin Province asked to keep Bowden CALGARY (CP) The Civil Service Association of Alberta is asking the provin- cial government not to sell the Bowden Correctional Institute to the federal government, CSA President Bill Broad says. "We understand the govern- ment is having second thoughts about the valua of the Bowden Institute going to the federal service because the province then has no place for the young he said in a telephone interview from Edmonton. "Alberta is short of correc- tional staff and it has done nothing to try and retain the staff at Bowden. This is ap- palling and the Bowden staff is upset." VISITORS TO YUKON More than tourists visited the Yukon during 1973, an increase of 12 per cent on 1972's figure. dealers and other sales agen- cies. One million coins already have been distributed. Production capacity at the Royal Canadian Mint, now about Olympic coins a week, will be boosted to about one million a week with addi- tion of another press. Mr. Ouellet said 'response everywhere has been tre- mendous" to the coins, sale of which will help finance the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal. It is hoped that million in profits will be earned by the coin program and Mr. Ouellet said that target seems within reach. Demand is high in Japan as well as Canada and once mar- keting begins in Europe March 1 and in the U.S. early in April the profit may be es- timated more precisely, he said. Because of high Canadian demand, the number of coins sold in this country might be raised to 50 from 40 per cent of production. Mr. Ouellet said the imme- diate sale of the one million coins circulated in December indicates such a change may be necessary, but foreign commitments still will be respected.

By FRED FERRETTI New York Times Service NEW YORK In London and Sydney people and in- dustries are given incentives to move out into the greenery of the countryside. Bonn and Paris build new cities away from their teem- ing cores and Moscow limits its size by law. No metropolitan centre is immune from the familiar urban maladies over- population, air and water pollution, garbage overflow- ing landfill levels, sprawling slums and a lack of cohesive and long-range planning Yet, until recently, many urban officials have done nothing but wring their municipal hands. Now, realiz- ing that the ills of industrial and population growth will not simply be wished away, or solve themselves, officials of major cities are attempting to deal with them in a variety of ways some in stop-gap fashion with programs conceived in desperation, others with far-reaching plans. SUBURBS In Britain since the middle of the last decade planners have encouraged residents and businesses to move away from inner London. Tax ad- vantages have been offered to industries, and blue-collar Londoners have been en- couraged to migrate to the suburbs by the construction of moderately priced housing and a decentralization of ser- vices. Local planning authorities in Britain have, for almost all of this century, had broad authority, but until 10 years ago they had not used their full power. In addition, Parlia- ment in the 1930's established square miles of green belts. Encouraged by the legislative freedoms that had long lain dormant, com- munities began to grow out- side of metropolitan London. Today 32 so-called "new towns" exist throughout Bri- tain of which are design- ed specifically to accom- modate London's overflow. And the central government has spent an average of 20 million a year in ancillary ser- vices, such as language centres, family advice and planning programs, communi- centres, nurseries Snd vacation programs for depriv- ed children. HOME OF WEALTHY Despite these programs, London becomes, with each passing year more the home of the wealthy, those who can afford the best of urban living, and less a place where the or- dinary workingman can exist a situation similar to that in Australia, where 63 per cent of the country's 13.1 million people live in the six largest cities. To offset this the Australian government has already appropriated 46.5 million for what are called rural growth centres, good distances away from the major cities. Towns of to people now will have to in the next 25 years, the govern- ment believes. The decentralization thrust is being accomplished, as in Britain, with such incentives as payroll-tax exemptions; five per cent advantages in government bidding contracts; easy railroad- freight facilities and employee training, and sub- sidized home loans to workers who will relocate. Within the cities themselves, it is realized that unrestricted growth harms urban environments. In Sydney, for example, a park- ing lot-was planned for a park next to the. Sydney Opera. Union workers refused to work on it, because three an- cient trees would have been destroyed. It was not built. West Germany's urban complexion is quite American-looking. Largely destroyed by the Second World War, German cities have been rebuilt into wide- avenued complexes in the square granite American style. Pedestrian malls wind through such cities as Munich, to announce the change of their TELEPHONE NUMBER to Hamburg, Dusseldorf and Cologne. The country has made some gains in fighting pollution, gradually reducing the amount of coal in the Ruhr, covering slag heaps with top soil and planting trees-and grazing sheep where wasted ground once lay.
