The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THI LITHKMDOB HIRALO Tuteday, January 19M 'Arguments are a good sign9 Calgary mayor controversial figure Picture of the year This photo of policemen aiding a comrade wounded by a bank bandit's suicide bomb in Ken- ora, Ont., May 10, 1973, wins the sixth annual Can- adian Press Picture of the Year award. It was taken by Kerry Mclntye of the weekly Kenora Calendar Heritage Canada to give for achievements seconds after the holdup man was shot, setting off the bomb he carried. The picture was judged best among more than carried on Canadian Press Wirephoto networks in 1973. By JOSEPH MA CALGARY (CP) Rod Sykes has been in hot water almost from the day he was first elected mayor of Calgary in 1969. At one time or another, he has been at odds with city council, city commissioners, the business community, civic employees, the police depart- ment and the media. Mr. Sykes said in an inter- view the arguments are a good sign. "When things are quiet, things are very wrong. That means things are being fixed up getting sweetheart deals." In 1972 a management con- sultant's report said unpro- ductive conflict was Calgary's overriding problem which, if continued, would seriously af- fect "the motivation and mo- rale of the administration staff." The report said the mayor and aldermen must display "a sincere desire to be effective in their role in the man- agement of the city." "An agreement must be reached that the interest of all citizens will come ahead of petty fighting and conflict." The problem, Mr. Sykes said, is that he is not "the old- fashioned mayor who didn't do any work and didn't take any responsibility and was just a baby-kisser and determined not to offend anybody." OFFERS NO APOLOGY "Now I'm a working mayor, and people know what I stand for. It's not how mucn a man speaks, it's what he says that counts. "As far as I'm concerned, whether I speak too much or too little, that's me." Most of city council is against him, he said, because what he stands open their security. One of the sources of great- est bitterness, he said, has been his "single-handed battle" during the last three years to have city council members disclose their finan- cial interests. "One of the curses of this whole political system is that aldermen with inside knowl- edge of planning and traffic development are able to buy and sell speculative land. It may not be illegal, but in my view it's morally dishonest." Council finally passed a res- olution on financial disclosure but it "made me more enemies and generated more hate than anything I've done." Mayor Sykes said he also has enemies in the city's busi- ness community. "I was a traitor because I was one of he said. He is a former vice-president of Marathon Realty, one of the Canadian Pacific group of companies. A slender 44-year-old six- footer, Mayor Sykes says he is basically shy and hates pol- itics. "Often I have to force my- self to do the things I do. I am not naturally outgoing. I am a family man." He ran for office-he was re-elected by a comfortable majority in he wanted to clean up the gov- ernment and make his five children "proud of the city they live in." As for his tiffs with cwie servants, he said corruption is no longer a serious problem at city hall but "three or four years ago some people went to jail" from the city cashier's department. "And we had a problem in the police department about four years ago when a senior policeman went to jail. I in- sisted that he be prosecuted and that made me enemies." Mayor Sykes said some sen- ior city officials were let go "because they were involved in concealed real estate deal- Ttie mayor's relationship with the media is not the best either. "If I think the newspapers or the reporters are wrong I'm going to say so." A survey by the University of Calgary found that Mayor Sykes has a great deal of sup- port from lower-income people. "I have done a great deal of work for these people and I'm not he said. "The rich person is not happy with me because I don't favor rich people. A little old lady on welfare could never get into the mayor's office before. The rich people can look after themselves. They don't need me."

(CP) The brother of a man whose body was found Thursday with the help of a clairvoyant has been charged with non-capital murder in the death. Provincial police said that William Franklin Tuer, 39, was arrested Saturday. He is to appear today in provincial court in Stratford, 10 miles southeast of here. Angus Tuer, 33, who had been missing since Dec. 9, was found dead in a well on his family's farm with a bullet wound in his head and a chain and weight attached to his neck The body was discovered after four hunters began com- bing the area after hearing that a clairvoyant had predicted that it would be found deep in the ground near his home. Clairvoyant Clara Mcnichol, 64, of nearby Millbank made the prediction after she had been approached earlier this month by two men who had, with several neighbors, been searching for the missing man since December. "I told them he was she said earlier in an inter- view "I told them I didn't like what I saw everything is still around him and he is deep in the ground." She also predicted that an arrest would be made soon after in connection with the death Mrs Mcnichol, who prefers to be called a consultant, said her help has been requested in the past by police and others on occasions "too many to 'recall" awarded the best achievement nationally, and a prize will be given in each of the four other regions of Canada for major accomplishments in preserving historic buildings or natural landscapes regard- ed as part of Canada's heritage. The first awards will be an- nounced in September when Heritage Canada holds its an- nual general meeting here. Organizations and individuals wanting to apply for the awards should notify Heritage Canada of their intentions by March 1. R. A. J. Phillips, executive director of the trust, said members of Heritage Canada's board will act as judges. The trust cannot lay down conditions for the awards yet because it is not known what kind of entries will be received. The awards are open to government agencies, com- panies and individuals for out- standing work in conser- vation. Achievements to be rewarded would include rally- ing community support for a heritage conservation project, organizing fund raising cam- paigns, or increasing public awareness of the heritage preservation cause. In addition, two annual travelling awards will be made each year to individuals who have made outstanding personal contributions to heritage conservation for the last 10 years. They will enable winners to spend three weeks examining heritage conserva- tion in the United Kingdom, in co operation with the British Council to start your cai when you need High Voltage battery Sears Tire and Auto Centre Power!
