Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 30, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 - THILETHBRIDGE HERAID - Saturday, January 30, 1971 PCs scramble to s CNR reprimanded Local autonomy LACK OP INTEREST !N MOONSHOT - Author Norman Mailer in San Francisco Friday said American* are about as interested in Sunday's Apollo 14 moonshot "as a border war in Bolivia" and it'* a shame. The 47-year-old Pulitzer prize winner blamed the National Aeronautics and Space Administration for using the space program as a "political football" Instead of a means to bring the nation together. United voice is goal of Canadian Federation TORONTO (CP) The Ontario Progresrive Conservative party leadership campaign is turning into a scramble by four candidates' to stop Education Minister William Davis' momentum that's likely to carry him to an early convention victory. That's the impression you get talking to the professionals managing the campaigns of the five cabinet ministers seeking to succeed Premier John Robarts at the Feb. 10-12 Toronto con vention. But the campaign organizers warn that with 10 days to go, it's possible that a political error by any of the hopefuls, weary after a tough winter campaign, could easily change the picture. The people who work for the candidates give the following impressions of their positions Mr. Davis, backed by a powerful organization, would have about 600 of 1,759 potential votes on a first ballot if the convention were meeting now. Financial and Commercial At fairs Minister A. B. R. Lawrence, in the absence of a sixth candidate and without a strong base of either delegate or financial support, would be first out of the race, probably with not much more than 100 votes. A candidate will have to gain 50 per cent of the votes, plus one vote, to win. OPINION DIVIDED Opinion among the professionals is sharply divided on the placing of the other three candidates, but a majority of them put Municipal Affairs' Minister Darcy McKeough second on first ballot, closely followed by Mines and Northern Affairs Minister Allan Lawrence and Provincial Secretary Rober Welch in a virtual tie for third place. major problem. Everything, of course, is conjecture until the delegates do the voting a week from next Friday, and a majority of them appears to be going to the convention waiting to be convinced Soccer results on safety. policy OTTAWA (CP) - A stiff reprimand on procedures that followed a recent train accident closed the first phase of a federal inquiry into railway safety Friday. D. H. Jones, Canadian transport commission chairman, called on Canadian National Railways to clarify the procedures the company followed after the Super Continental was derailed near Dunrobin, Ont., Dec. 29,1970. Mr. Jones said an investigation had shown that a relief train arrived at the scene three and a half hours after the accident. The commission was gravely concerned about the unclear lines of authority and responsibility that would allow such t time lapse. Further, the Investigation showed, "the first call for an ambulance to treat injured people was received at 7:00 p.m. from a man who lived along the railway track," Mr. Jones said. EXAMINES PROCEDURES A major reason for the special inquiry was to examine procedures railway companies followed after accidents. "We have been reassured by CP Rail. But we regret to say we are not reassured by CN," Mr. Jones said. Earlier in the inquiry Charles Fawkes Armstrong, transportation chief for CNR, said full details of the derailment hadn't yet been reported to the company. But a full report would follow as soon as possible. Commissioner J. W. Woodard wondered at the delay. "I am not going to accuse you of being evasive, but it seems to me that this accident occurred a month ago and you don't seem to have as much information about it right now as we do," he said. Clark's plan EDMONTON (CP) - The Alberta government said Friday it intends "to create a climate'' which will foster the autonomy of local school boards. Education Minister Robert Clark, replying in a prepared statement to the Alberta Teachers' Association annual brief to the provincial cabinet, said school boards should accept more responsibility. "In light of t h i s principle, you can see we feel . . . hours of instruction, special diplomat, local curriculum development, reports on teachers, teacher consultation on building plans and all matters involving working conditions, have been directed to the wrong party. "They are properly a matter OTTAWA (CP) - A resolution calling on the Canadian Federation of Agriculture and the National Farmers Union to speak for farmers with a united N.W.T. council appointees OTTAWA (CP) - Northern Development Minister Jean Chretien has announced the appointment of two new members to the Northwest Territories Council and reappointment of two others. The new appointments are Dr. Louise-Edmond Hamelin, professor of geography at Laval University and director of the Centre for Northern Studies in Quebec, and Leo Gerard Lem-ieux, an Edmonton business man. voice was approved at the closing session of the federation's week-long meeting. The resolution stressed the importance of farmers working in unity when seeking government action on common problems. "There have been times in the past when the two major Canadian farm organizations have expressed diverse views on an issue before government, and by doing so have divided Canadian farmers," the resolution said. CFA delegates resolved "that the CFA and the NFU make an effort to speak for Canadian farmers with a united voice." The Canadian Press erroneously reported Thursday the CFA resolved to join the NFU as a united voice for Canadian farmers.

Replying to a recommendation that childhood education should be extended to those children younger than school age, Mi1. Clark said his department is "actively investigating a number of approaches." "But it would be wrong to move before our research is complete and impossible to move before our finances will allow it." On educational finance: Alberta has no intention of withdrawing regulations requiring a plebiscite if a school board plans to increase its supplementary requisition to mora than six per cent for each pupil in a given year. Court cases dip TABER (HNS) - Prosecutions in Taber magistrate's court during 1970 were down by more than 10 per cent from the year previous but would have been up by more than eight per cent had not the Alberta Liquor Control Act been amended. Total court cases concluded last year stood at 817 as compared with 916 for 1969, distribution being: criminal code 153 (144), highway traffic act 359 (305), and liquor control act 305 (467). However, last year since June, 177 Intoxicated persons were held in the cells overnight and released without charge. These previously would have been hailed into court, bringing the total liquor charges to 482 for the year. During 1970, police invest! gated 64 major and 79 minor motor vehicle accidents, involving 18 injuries and prop- erty damage amounting to $35,-568. This is a notable redaction from the 100 major and 93 minor accidents last year (1969) involving 26 personal injuries and property loss of $56,392. The police report for December covered 10 prosecutions under the criminal code, 10 under the highway traffic act, 16 under the liquor control act, and one person was held over night and discharged after sobering. Cases Included two youths charged with the theft of two rifles and money from a private home. Police said while the 10 traffic cases showed a sharp decline from the 52 convictions in November, December experienced a large number of minor motor vehicle accidents caused by the extremely icy streets, and en which very few charges were laid.
