Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta TRY AlBERTA OR B.C. For those who dis- like cold, wet weather, British Columbia and Alberta are the places to be during February according to the long-range forecast of the Unit- ed States bureau. Most of the prairiei and eastern Canada will have below or much- below normal readings. Fresh news in yesterday's neivspaper CHICAGO (AP) Field Enterprises, Inc., is- put- ting fresh news in yesterday's paper. The Tjesday edition of Fields' Chicago Sun-Times was prinled in Us entirety on paper recycled at a plant in suburban Alsip. Fields' Chicago Daily News will be completely printed on recycled paper next Tuesday. Spokesmen for Fields said the publication of an entire edition on recycle paper was a first in the United States. They said recycled paper will be used a regular basis for up to 50 per cent of the daily press inns of both papers. Fields, which owns the recycling mill jointly with Garden State Paper CD., said recycling there annually conserves 1.5 million trees. The mill is used exclusively for reclaiming old newspapers end turning them into rolls of paper to make new ones. Sorted out Waste paper is delivered to the plant in bales and dumped onto a floor on the receiving deck to sort out glossy paper magazines, which are only acceptable in small quantities. Fork-Eft trucks that brought in the hales then bull- doze the sorted paper into a huge square bin that carries it to a whirling container known as a batcb- pulper. The paper is reduced and almost completely de- inked under a flood of water and secret chemicals, spokesman said. The pulp passes through cylinders that remove staples, paperclips and other foreign objects. The Ink remaining from the first treatment is then pressed out and filtered away to sewers. The pulp is washed once more, refined and wash- ed again until it resembles a porridge that is four per cent fibre, 96 per cent water. This ratio is changed to 0.5 per cent fibre, 99.5 per cent water by inundating the so-called porridge with gallons of water a minute. Air sucked out Air is sucked out of the water to avoid holes in the paper and the resulting mixture is ready for the ac- tual paper-making process. The water is then sucked and pressed from the mixture until the paper fibres knit together to form a. relatively smooth mat. The mat is later dried over steam-heated rollers and its surface is smoothed by a series of vertically mounted rollers. The resuulting paper is then rolled, cut into reels and stacked for delivery. The Fields said the chemical for removing the ink from the old paper was develop- ed by Richard B. Soudder, former publisher of tha Newark News. After he sold the Newark News, Soudder formed the Garden State Paper Co., which manages the Alsip plant. The plant produces newsprint for several news- papers most of them in the Midwest, which partially publish on the recycled paper. Acid rain slows growth NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) Rain over vast rural areas of (lie Northeastern United States has become 100 limes more acid than normal, says a professor of forest ecology at Yale University. F. Herbert Bormann says the cause probably is linked to sulphor dioxide air pollution from distant ci- ties, and he says the cffecls could include basic changes in Hie soil nnd life forms in northeastern forests. Bormann said in an interview Uxs Increased acid- ity may be one cause for a slight decline in the rate of forest growth in the U.S. And, he adds, the weak- ening effect of tire acid rain may be wliat has been making northeastern woods susceptible to pats the elm span worm and the gypsy moth. Moreover, he says, the findings seem to open t new type of worry about tire long-range effects of pol- lutants like sulphur dioxide, which hud been thought lo hnve only immediate effects near where tbcv were produced.

He was Identified as a man wanted for two Canadian rob- beries. The Trans World Airlines plane was commandeered over Illinois when it carried 101 per- sons and then was permitted to land at its scheduled destina- tion, New York's Kennedy Inter- national Airport. The hijacker was identified -tentatively by the Federal Avia- tion Administration as Garrett Brook Trapnell. Police in Toronto said man of that name is wanted there for two shopping plaza holdups. A Florida lawyer was reported as faying he had represented Trap- Dell several times in the past, adding that the cases included Canadian bank robberies and a jewel theft in the Bahamas. nounced earlier in the day by tie Canadian local of the Inter- national Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union an "ille- gal" sympathy strike. "As far as we're concerned this is Canada, not the Mr. Strang said. "We'll have In take what action is available to us to have our contract lived up to." Don Garcia, president of the Canadian branch of the ILWU, announced earlier that the prov- ince's longshoremen would refuse to handle cargo diverted from U.S. ports, where dockers have been on strike since Jan. 17. "No cargu diverted from the U.S. is to be loaded or unloaded in British Columbia for further transshipment from or to points in the Mr. Garcia said. "The decision was taken to help them (U.S. dockers) win a collective agreement." He said the decision was based "our appraisal of the ne- gotiations and the length of the strike down there." PICKET BORDER Tha action by lie Canadian unionists came as longshoremen and members of the Teamsters union set up a picket line at the Mexican border to stop cargo from crossing into California from the Mexican port of Esen- ada. The B.C. port already is facing a crisis in operations because of a pile-up of ships in harbor. Major factor in the pile-up has been the disruption by winter storms of bulk rail shipments of grain and coal from the Prairies and eastern B.C. New Trudeau cabinet team full of surprises OTTAWA (CP) Justice Minister John Turner takes over Finance Minister E. J. Benson's Job and nine other ministers change posts in a cabinet shuffle announced Friday by Prime Minister Trudeau a revamping full of surprises. The 30-man cabinet also lost a member in Energy Minister J. J. Greene's resignation, and gained one with the addition of Pat Mahoney, former parliamentary secretary to Mr. Benson, as minister state. Mr. Tnideau told a news con- ference that the shuffle was brought about by the request of Mr. Benson for a new post, and the continuing illness of Mr. Greene, who suffered a series of strokes and heart attacks in the last three years. Mr. Turner's move to the fi- nance politically and physically punishing a surprise in Ottawa, despite ru- mors of cabinet changes circu- lating for weeks. "Nobody expresses desires to be minister of con- ceded Mr. Trudeau. The prime minister said the changes were to take formal ef- fect Friday evening, and most of the ministers would be i n their new offices Monday morn, ing. Mr. Benson takes over the de- fence department, and former defence minister Donald S. Macdonald, 39, dale, fills Mr. Greene's post. Mr. Tnideau praised Mr. Ben- son for "his considerable skills, good humor, and ability to get Last child of founder of Fort MacLeod dies Train jumps track near Cut Bank CUT BANK, Mont. (AP) Rescuers cut through snow drifts and a snowstorm with plows and school buses about Friday to evacuate 77 passengers stranded for three hours by a train wreck on Mon- tana's northern prairies. Burlington Northern officials In charge of the operation of the eastbound train said only minor injuries occurred after the 13 car train left the track in a blinding snowstorm. Four persons were hospital- ized in a Cut Bank hospital, about 10 miles east of the crash scene, while another 10 were treated and released. A small cavalcade of four buses and snowp'ows pushed into the crash area through the neac-wro cold. CALGARY (CP) Jean Montgomerie Bell, youngest daughter of Col. J. F. Macleod, died Friday night a the age of 83 following a lengthy illness. Mrs. na- tive of Pincher Creek, Alta., was the last surviving child in the Macleod family.

Mr. Benson had guided Can- ada through. a "most difficult economic period, and the cur- rant indicators will stand as Jus- tification for what he did." The prime minister said Mr. Turner "brings great knowledge and great strength" to the fi- nance department. The other changes announced by Mr. Trudeau: Laing, 67, Vancouver South, to veterans affairs from public works. Mr. .Laing has announced he will not seek re- election. Macfcasey. 50, Ver- dun, to manpower and immigra- tion from labor, retaining re- sponsibility for the unemploy- ment insurance commission. Andras, 50, Port Ar- thur, to consumer and corporate affairs from secretary of state for urban affairs. Dube, 45, Resti- gouche, to public works from veterans affairs. Basford, 39, Vancouver Centre, to urban affairs from consumer and corporate affairs. Lang, 39, Saskatoon- Humboldt, to justice and attor- ney-general from manpower and immigration, retaining re. sponsibility for the Canadian wheat board. O'Connell, 55, Scar- borough East, to labor from secretary of state for citizen- ship, retaining responsibility for Information Canada. WILL ADD STRENGTH Mr. Trudeau said Mr. Maho- ney, MP for Calgary South, "is experienced in a number of areas and will add strength to the Western representation in the government, which I feel if very important." The prime minister did not specify Mr. Mahoney's new duties as minister of state. The Calgary lawyer's most recent job was piloting the gov- ernment's huge las-change bill through the House. The cabinet changes provoked skepticism among Commons op- position leaders. Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield said that with the same old faces, "there is no indication that there will be any improvement in the policies of the Trudeau government." New Democrat David Lewis agreed that "the cards have been shuffled but the deck re- mains just about OK same." Mr. Lewis said most Canadi- ans would be relieved that Mr. Benson has left the finance job. But Mr. Stanfield said Mr. Trudeau must still take the blame for the "ineffective poli- cies that the former finance minister imposed on the Cana- dian economy." The prime minister denied any relation between the cabi- net shuffle and tlie federal elec- tion expected this year. The changes were strictly functional, he said. Graveyard of Ottawa politicians By DAVE McINTOSH OTTAWA (CP) In laconic understatement, Prime Minister Trudeau said Friday: "Nobody expresses a desire to be finance minister." He had just announced the ap- pointment of Justice Minister John Turner, a 42-year-old Lib, eral heir apparent, to the fi- nance portfolio. This post if not a political graveyard is at least an inten- sive care unit. Conservative Donald Fleming and Liberal Walter Gordon are, recent examples. Some say fi- nance buried leadership Iwpcs of Mitchell Sharp and E. J. Ben- eon leaves the post with few regrets, it is widely believed. Mr. Turner is not the only heir apparent. There ara deemed to be at least three oth- ers: Transport Minister Don Jamleson, 50, Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pcpin, 47, end the new energy minister, Donflld Mac- donald, .19. It is not impossible to prime minister after holding tha finance post. But the record is not impressive. Sir Charles Tupper was fi- nance minister in 1887-88 but lasted only a few months as Conservative prime minister in 1896. R. B. Bennett was finance minister briefly in 1926 and Con- servative prime minister from 1030 to 1935. He was caughj in the depression and lu's tenure is not pointed to with pride. HAS OBSTACLES Thus Mr. Turner faces formi- dable traditional obstacles in his plan to become liberal leader and prime minister. He ran third for the leadership in 1968 when Mr. Trudeau won. But Mr. Turner is not only personable. He Is tough. He also surprised a great many people by popping up in the finance portfolio and ho might havo luck. Tins economy appears lo be on Ihn upswing despite continuing high unemployment. If Mr. Turner does not have to pick-up too many pieces from the recent tax-change law, he may sur- vive. Mr. Jamieson and Mr. Pepin were not shifted in the 12-man cabinet overhaul. Mr. Macdonald may be able to make a bigger mark than in defence, now relPHvely quiet. He will be dealing with the United States on the critical subject of continental energy re- sources. He will probably be in the public eye as much as Mr. Turner. Mr. Tnideau srcniM to cut his losses on heavy criticism of the government's competition bill and proposed legislation to amend the labor code to take account of technological change. Those bills, plus the revised In- come Tax Act on which Mr. Benson carried the ball, have deeply disturbed business cir- cles which provide n lot of the money for election campaign, infi. Consumer Affairs Minister Rob Basford, responsible for the competition bill, has gone to urban affairs- and Labor Minis- ter Bryce Mackasey, in charge of the labor code amendments, was moved to manpower. Mr. Tnideau said, however, the government is committed to the "general principles" of both bills. Robert Andras, who has been assigned special election planning responsibility, has gone lo consumer affairs from urban affairs. Though most ministers re- main where they have been, Mr. Trudeau's changes give thn cabinet a well-scrubbed look for the next election, expected this year. The object ill politics is lo keep looking well scnihbed until things start going wrong again, us they Inevitably do with any government. Consequently, the Indication Is lor a general election sooner rnthcr than Per- haps. LAING veterans CP Rail Hies for higher fares MONTREAL (CP) -CP Rail announced Friday It wi'l in- crease fares and sleeping ac- commodation charges by 10 per cent on its transcontinental pas- senger train service beginning Tuesday. In a new tariff filed witi the Canadian Transport Commis- sion, the railway said it was also Increasing fares on its pas- senger trains between Montreal and Ottawa on the north shore route and between Sudbuiy, Ont., and White River, Ont. The railway said that passen- gers on its transcontinental trains will have to buy their meals because it was no longer offering the "all-inclusive" fare package. A second new tariff will be filed with the CTC next week applying the ifrper-cent In- crease to most of the railway's other passenger train services effective Feb. 15. Not affected by the Increases are commuter services in tive Montreal area, and passenger trains linking Toronto and Hav- elock, Ont. and Montreal to St. John, N.B.

Conference still on -Getty EDMONTON (CP) A feder- al-provincial finance conference in Jasper, Alta., next week is still on, Don Getty, Alberta minister of Intergovern- mental affairs, said Friday night Prime Minister Trudeau hi announcing a major cabinet shuffle earlier in the day, had suggested the conference, scheduled for next Monday and Tuesday, be postponed. Mr. Trudeau said It did not seem desirable to have John Turner, who replaced Edgar Benson as finance minister, at- tend the conference so soon after taking over a new posi- tion. But Mr. Getty told a news conference that he had been In touch with Ottawa and had been advised that Mr. Turner is being briefed by finance depart- ment officials and will be chair- man of the Jasper meeting. The conference already had been postponed once due to Ihf national air controllers strike.
