Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 29, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 32 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 2t, 1B75 -rr i _ 1 School zones will be Kidnap victim says accused are wrong men MONCTON. N.B. (CP) kl'Hnannlnff In Which tWO UJmrmMUmA ImmHtlmA TitmmAmu _____..-I_____f___1___l-i__ __ii__ _< i__i_i_i L_ instituted at WCHS MONCTON, N.B. (CP) The 14-year-old victim of a kl'dnapplng In which two investigating police officer! School zones are to be in- stituted on 15th Avenue N. ad- jacent to Winston Churchill High School. City council Monday agreed to a resolution by Aid. Tony Tobin to implement the school zones he said are needed because of the number of pre school children at the school. A pre scllool child was kill- ed in an accident there recently, he added. Randy Holfeld, city engineering director, told council city policy is normally to put up school zone signs only at elementary schools, and that's why the street hadn't previously been marked. The 6th Avenue river cross- ing will soon bear the name "Whoop-Up Drive." City council Monday simply filed a report from its street naming committee that proposed several names for future West Lethbridge arterial roads. Other names include Gary Drive, Steele Drive, Benton Drive, Macleod Drive, and Chinook Way. The city's handicapped won't get a special bus from the city for transportation to Winter Games events in the city. City council sympathized with a resolution asking for provision of such a bus, but suggested in the time available it would be difficult to obtain one and to organize its use during the Games. But Aid. Tony Tobin, who. made the resolution, said one reason he asked for it was to get some action on the request for buses by, Disabled on the Move for general use by han- dicapped people in the city. "1 for one am not prepared to wait until the transporta- tion study comes in by the end of 1975, before we take an in- itiative on their he said. Aid. Bob Tarleck and Aid. Don Le Baron also voted in favor of the resolution to provide a Winter Games handi-bus. A report on 1975 rates at the Henderson Lake Golf Club were accepted by city council Monday, because it basically had no choice. Under the agreement between club and the city the club must report its rates to council, but council has no say on them. Some aldermen did attempt to comment on them, however. Aid. Vaughan Hembroff said he thought green fees were a little too high for a weekday. City council Monday approved a set of rental rates for Sportsplex facilities that will be tried out for six months. The rates vary according to whether the user falls into a recreational, non commer- cial or commercial classification. Included are rates for the speedskating oval, adults 60 cents, students 40 cents, children 25 cents for public skating handball, racquet ball and squash courts at 75 cents per person for 45 minutes as well as the main building area. Its rent ranges from per hour for minor hockey and figure skating to per day or 20 per cent of receipts whichever is greater, for ma- jor commercial events. Recording shows pil wondered about altitude WASHINGTON (AP) Minutes before a jetliner crashed into a Virginia moun- Labor group advocates law changes EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta Federation of Labor today proposed in its annual submission to the cabinet that sweeping changes be made in labor legislation to protect the rights of employees to organize. It also sought the repeal of legislation excluding govern- ment employees from the jurisdiction of the labor act. The federation sought preferential pricing of crude oil from the Athabasca oil sands for the Canadian market and said that exports should be considered only after domestic needs have been satisfied. It said energy resources should be developed through a Crown corporation. The federation criticized the unfair trade practices act, now before the legislature. It said the director lacks a man- date and court action remains the only recourse for the con- sumer. It also expressed concern over the possibility of deteriorating hospital and nursing home services. Both services receive government funds and action should be taken to ensure that increases in funding are used to increase the wage rates of the employees, the federation said.

SINGER College Mall Sewing Centres tain last Dec. 1 lulling 92 per- sons, the captain wondered aloud whether he was flying The transcript of the cockpit voice recorder releas- ed Monday at a hearing on the cause of the crash shows that the captain made the com- ment as the Trans World Airlines jetliner descended to feet. "You know, according to this dumb sheet, it says to Round Hill is our minimum said the pilot, Richard Brock. Brock then "When he (the air traffic controller) clears you, that means you can go to your initial approach altitude." Less than two minutes later the plane hit the top of a foot mountain while trying to land at Dulles International Airport near Washington. A central question at the National Transportation Safe- ty Board hearings, which opened Monday, is whether the pilot made an erroneous assumption that he could des- cend to feet as soon as he received final approach clear- Another question to be ex- amined is whether air traffic Merle Dameron were .killed, testified Tueidiy that there was a greater height difference between the two men who abducted him than that of the two men charged with the crimes. Raymond Stein told a preliminary hearing for the two men charged with kid- napping him in December and with the murders of the police officers that he did not see his abductors' faces on the night of Dec. 12, but he heard their voices. He said he heard one of the same voices a few days later as he stood outside a door at RCMP headquarters here. The boy's father, Cy Stein, who paid the required ransom and secured the release of his son, said he also recognized one of the voices at RCMP headquarters. He said he had heard the same voice in several telephone calls to his home on the night of the ab- duction. The boy's testimony came during the first day of the pre- on the baits of height he believed Hutchison and Ambrose were not the two who abducted him from his home. Recounting the night of Dec. 12, the Stein boy testified he was confronted by two masked and armed men when he arrived home with his grandmother. He said the taller of the two kidnappers was taller than ei- ther of the accused. He said he heard the same voice the night of Dec. 15 at the RCMP headquarters in Moncton, where he and his son stood outside a room where at least two men were I "To my mind, it's a voice I'll never Mr. Stein said. The preliminary hearing continues today. DUS CrCWS LONDON (Reuter) Buses disappeared from the streets of London today in a 24-hour strike for better protection for transport workers after a con- ductor was beaten to death on duty. About of the strikers attended a funeral march for the victim, 44-year- old Jamaican-born Ronald Jones. They marched to a church near Wandsworth Common in South London, the area where Jones died in a fight with some passengers on Jan. 19. Two men have been arrested and charged with the killing. The busmen demanded better protection, especially for crews working at night in Michael O'Leary, 33, of the Moncton city police. Defence lawyer Edward Bell objected to the boy's testimony about the voice he said he heard, arguing that the boy did not see those within the RCMP headquarters and that the voices might have been "on a machine." Asked to look at the ac- cused, Raymond testified that appeared smaller man, Raymond said. He said a woolen hat was pulled over his face backwards, obscuring his vision, and he was led to a car after his grandmother was tied to a railing inside the home. Mr. Stein said he received four telephone calls during the abduction episode, and the caller in each case had the same male voice.
