Joe Crooked Legs said he called the RCMP after he tried to rouse his nephew Elvis Bremner, 17, and Dewey Crooked Legs Jan. 11. He said he knew the youths had been drinking the night before. When he couldn't rouse them, he said, he remembered there was gas- line anti-freeze in the house. The RCMP travelled 45 miles to the reserve to pick up the men and returned to Rocky Mountain House, where the men were placed in cells. Sgt. Mike Linggard said it was not the understanding of the policemen who answered the call that the men be taken to hospital. Sgti Linggard said Joe Crooked Legs could have called an ambulance or taken the men to hospital in his car. He also said that at no time were the police told for cer- tain that the two had consum- ed anti-freeze. Investigation showed the men started drinking about 3 a.m. and were placed in cells here at p.m. the same day. As a precaution, they were given medication to in- duce vomiting. Bremner died about 8 p.m. the next day, four hours after the death of Dewey Crooked Legs. The two had been taken to Rocky Mountain hospital a jail guard found, at about p.m. on the day they were placed in the town cells, that Bremner did not respond when the guard tried to wake him. CONCLUDES CASE CAIRO (Reuter) The prosecution concluded Sunday its case against 92 persons charged with subversion, re- questing the death sentence for 74 of them. The defendants are alleged to have attacked Cairo's technical military academy last April, killing 11 persons and injuring 27. The trial resumes next month with defence pleas. damages VANCOUVER (CP) Damages of have been assessed against two British Columbia Lions football players for the beating of three men. Mr. Justice A. A. Mackoff said the conduct of Francis (Bud) Magi-urn and Harold Garrett Hunsperger was "outrageous and high handed and calls for an award of sub- stantial aggravated and exemplary damages." Hunsperger must pay 500 and Magrum The B.C. Supreme Court ac- tion resulted from two separate incidents last year. Victims of the beatings were Raymond Kursel, Donald Antosko and Ronald Porter, all employees of Delta Hotels Ltd. Hunsperger joined the Lions of the Canadian Football Leaaue in 1969. He was named to the league's western all star team in 1974. Magrum has played two years with the Lions! nothi new-Marchand OTTAWA (CP) Price fix- ing among airlines is nothing new and will continue with the blessing of the Canadian Tran- sport Commission Transport Minister Jean Marchand said Tuesday. Mr. Marchand said in the Commons that six Canadian airlines were within their rights in obtaining CTC approval last month for almost identical fare increases for 1975 transatlan- tic charter flights. He was responding to Pro- gressive Conservative MPs Jack Murta (Lisgar) and Perrin Beatty (Wellington- Grey-Dufferin-Waterloo) who said the airlines colluded to set higher charter fares than were proposed by foreign competitors. "Price fixing in the field of the airlines is nothing new be- cause they are part of an asso- Mr. Marchand said. "That they fix the price of journeys over the ocean is very well known and deter- mined by their association in Montreal." The airlines, Canadian Pa- cific, Air Canada, Pacific Western Airlines, Nordair, Transair and Wardair obtain- ed CTC approval for an increase of about 13 per cent in Advance Booking Charter (ABC) rates for this year. A CTC official said Wardair originally proposed lower rates but went along with a higher schedule agreed upon by the others. The rates will set the price of an ABC round-trip ticket between Toronto and-London at to depending on the season. ABC passengers must book charter .seats 60 days in advance and pay a non-returnable deposit. Some European charter air- lines have complained that they are not permitted to carry passengers to Canada at lower charter rates. A CTC of- ficial said the commission has had a policy for the last three years of forbidding foreign airlines from undercutting Canadian companies with lower fares. Mr. Beatty asked Prime Minister Trudeau if the government is considering an inquiry into all federal regulatory bodies to deter- mine whether they are "protecting the privileged1 position of industries by shielding them from competi- tion instead of representing the public interest." Mr. Trudeau said no inquiry is be- ing considered. Mr. Murta said CTC rulings should favor the company pro-, posing the lowest fares. Baby Boom ROME (Reuter) A baby boom In Italy is being attrib- uted to energy-saving measures such as no late- night television transmissions and early closings of restaurants and nightclubs. Quoting official figures, Luigi De Marchi, secretary of the Italian Family Planning Association, told a news conference here Tuesday there was a seven-per-cent increase in births from 1973 to 1974.
