Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-30,Lethbridge, Alberta B.C. again scraps plans for daylight time switch VICTORIA <CP) - The British Columbia government has again changed its mind and decided to scrap pbns for going to daylight time Sunday. Premier Dave Barrett emerged from a New Democratic Party caucus meeting Tuesday to say that some of the members of the caucus from northern parts of the province had opposed the move and therefore the province would not be switching early to daylight time. The NDP administration announced Dec. 20 that it would be following the lead of the United States and switching to daylight time Jan. 6, but later, on Jan. 4, announced that the changeover would be delayed until Feb, 3. “We will not be going ahead with daylight saving time be FOR SALE BY OWNERS TWO 24 SUin LUXURY APARTMENT BUILDINGS Full Price $280,000.00 Each Cash To Mortgage On One $51,500.00 Cash To Mortgage On The Other $72,000.00 GLEN Limi CONSTRUCTION LTD. 20a - 31 Str**l North    Phon* 327-. 876 cause of reports from the rural MLAs.” Premier Barrett said. “The reaction to the experiment by people from their areas was pretty n^ative and we are not going to be locked into an experiment we want to try if the people from the rural areas are not interested in going along." Mr. Barrett said he didn’t feel the government was losing face by reversing its decision a second time. He said it was a question of a democratic |bvernment listening to its members and then making a decision. Provincial Secretary Ernie Hall said when he announced the government’s original decision to go to daylight time Jan. 6 that the object was to save energy and to avoid "disruption in certain social aspects in our lives” due to the U.S. going to fast time. He said at that time that he hoped other provinces would follow B.C.’s example in the energy-saving program. However. no other provinces followed suit.

Nobody would help EDMONTON (CP) - A Sherwood Park man who helped rescue three people Sunday from a capsized hovercraft-type water vehicle on Wabamun Lake, 40 miles west of here, said today most people who saw tiie accident just stood on the shore and watched. "We went through hell,” said Ken Schimpf, 2B. “My ears were froien and my body still isn’t functioning well.” A nine-year-old Australian boy, Mark Jubinville, died in the mishap. Mr. Schimpf said he and three companions were fishing near the spot where the accident occurred and had to pull a wooden boat across the ice to the open water where the three survivors were standing on the hull of the overturned craft.Teachers want action CALGARY CCP) - About 1,000 Calgary Catholic school teachers, frustrated over the impasse of contract negotiations with the separate school board, have voted in favor of asking the Alberta Teachers Association (ATA) to appoint a bargaining agent to continue their negotiations. Bob Berchard, president of the ATA Local 95, said the teachers also voted reaffirming their negotiating stand which they decided on last November. That stand — or the position of the school board negotiating committee headed by trustee John Currie — has not been disclosed as both sides agreed to keep their proposals secret until a settlement is reached. Pickett seeks presidency EDMONTON (CP) - Jack Pickett, vice'president of the Alberta Liberal party, says he will seek the party’s presidency at the party convention here March 1-2.

Higher beef prices seen EDMONTON (CP) - Beef consumers can expect to pay higher prices for beef this spring because of a reduction in the volume of young cows being placed on feed, a Canadian Cattlemen’s Association market analyst said here this week. Don Robins said there has been a five-per-cent reduction in the normal volume of heifers (young cows) being placed on feed in Canada. Court case expected over radio program TORONTO (AP) — An hour-long CBC network radio documentary on lead-poisoning Tuesday night was interrupted on the air for deletions after two lead refining companies in Toronto obtained a court injunction against the program. Because of time zone differences, the program in the As It Happens series, had been broadcast in its entirety to the fourt Atlantic provinces before the injunction was received, the CBC said. The Supreme Court of Ontario injunction, taken out by Canada Metals Ltd. and Toronto Refiners Ltd , prohibits the CBC from broadcasting implications that the )laintiffs have “bought mls-eading favorable medical evidence and concealed material evidence from medical experts and from mistaking the amounts the plaintiffs are spending to install pollution control devices.” Two portions of the program the CBC felt were affected by the injunction were deleted before the broadcast was transmitted as scheduled to other areas of the country, said Mark Starowicz, the program's executive producer. Earlier Tuesday the Ontario ministry of health asked for a transcript or an advance airing of the broadcast but was refused by the CBC. George Flak, a CBC lawyer, said it was “highly probable" the corporation would “go Into court... to contest the injunction” today. Child custody law said bad EDMONTON (CP) — Hie lawyer who acted for an Edmonton woman in a Jan. 9 custody case involving her eight-year-old son laid Tuesday he will advise the woman not to appeal her case to the Supreme Court of Canada. Robert White said although the law which denied the woman a custody order is "an incredibly bad taw,” he does not think Herma Munz should be expected to bear the $2,000 cost of appealing to the high court. The appellate division of the Supreme Court of AlberU ruled it had no jurisdiction to grant custody of the child to Mrs. Munz. In the same case the court overturned two contempt citatkma against the child's father, Walter Munz. Two different judges of the Supreme Court's trial division had found Mr. Munz in contempt for taking the couple’s son Andreas to Austria where he Is believed to be living with his grandparenU. Mr. White uid the appellate division decision would allow an American father to bring a child to the province while his wife obulncd a U.S. court order giving her custody of their child. The Alberta covrt decMon means that the province’s courts cannot enforce the U.S. ooiirt decision because the woman wobM iwt be a mMent of Alberta. ;
