Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THI UTHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, July 7, W3 New museum depicts RCMP history REGINA (CP) "Life be- gins when we come to our end. Jesus is our true friend." (Signed) Louis "David" Kiel. Poetic words, hand-written by the self-proclaimed' Metis prophet who led the Kiel rebel- lion in the West and was hanged for treason Nov. 16, 1885. That brief note, written on a tattered piece of yellowed pa- per, is part of a display located just 60 feet from the spot where Kiel was hanged in Regina. The display is one of many engrossing sections in the new museum built at the Royal Ca- nadian Mounted Police training headquarters here. Included in that display is the crucifix Riel carried with him to the scaffold, a piece of the rope he was hanged with and the handcuffs that manacled him. Those troubled, violent days of the West mark a single chap- ter in the RCMP's history. The part the force played in the con- flict is given stark reality by a list of member's killed or wounded in the fighting. QUEEN OPENS MUSEUM The museum, built at a cost of million, was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth in the 100th year of the RCMP's history. Equipment, weapons, pictures and artifacts abound, giving a vivid insight into the last 100 years of the history of the West. Everything is laid out chrono- logically, beginning with a dis- play of the 1870s setting the scene for events at the time the RCMP (then the North-West Mounted Police) was being formed. "At that time, Karl Mars was writing his Das Kapital, Gen- CURRIE'S FINE FOODS I CATC OPEN 7 DAYS lEfllO A WEEK and Fresh Produce A.M. TO P.M. 1516 9th Ave. S. BETWEEN THE TWO HOSPITALS BLOCK BROS.

Interest Free) leans Catalogue ral U.S. Grant was president of the United States, Disraeli was prime minister of England. In Canada, whisky traders were beginning their peace- eroding activities in the West, the danger of Fenian raids was ever president, inter-tribal war- are among Indians became alarming and the Cypress Hills ilassacre took place. The times screamed for law and order and on May 23, 1873, 'arliament passed an act creat- ing the North-West Mounted Po- lice. A short time later, 300 raw recruits began their trek west o build outposts and enforce he laws. More displays show the estab- ishment of the first NWMP icadquarters at Fort Walsh, the arrival of Sitting Bull and the beginning of settlement. CANTEEN TO CHAPEL A stained-glass window Is dis- >layed, recalling the time when he building, which later be- came a chapel, was" a canteen used by men who paid five cents for a glass of beer. The structure, built in 1883, was converted into a chapel 14 rears later and still stands ad- jacent to the museum and still s used by the men. NEW TECHNIQUE PROTECTS WOUNDS The gold-rush era'of the Yu- kon in 1897 is depicted in pic- tures and by a formidable-look- ing machine-gun. The gun, an air-cooled Maxim Nordenfeld .303-caUbre, was set up in the White Pass between the Yukon and Alaska by Supt. Sam Steele when he heard the notorious Soapy Smith planned to enter the Yukon to rob and kill pros- pectors. But Soapy, the American des- perado who ambushed unsus- pecting prospectors on the Alaska side of the pass, was gunned down by vigilantes be- fore he could carry out his plans. Other exhibits recall the NWMP participation in the Boer War of 1899, the force as- suming marine patrol duties on the St. Roch and RCMP Wood, as well as more recent activi- ties. At the exit the visitor is con- fronted by the stuffed remains of another famous member of the force. Many a recruit wJH remember Nero, police service horse No. 296 who died this year after more than 15 years of service. He had a penchant for nipping recruits as they groomed him. OTTAWA (CP) A Cana- dian-developed technique for bathing wounds with sterile air during surgery is less costly and more effective than similar systems being tested in hospi- als, Dr. John Westwood of the University of Ottawa says. Dr. Westwood, one of the pat- ented "Air Bath" developers, Shorter week for workers EDMONTON (CP) The oil, Chemical and Atomic Workers' Union (OCAW) and Gulf Oil Canada Ltd. have reached tent- ative agreement on a new 31- month contract for em- ployees which would shorten the work week while maintain- ing the eight-hour day. The proposed contract, to be effective July 1, would shorten the work week to 37.3 hours from 40, but the employee's gain in hours would be reflect- ed in 17 additional days off per year. The proposals, subject to rati- fication by about nine Gulf lo- cals across the country, would also form die basis of contracts with OCAW members who work for other major oil companies, Neil Refaner, the union's na- tional director, said. The proposed contract also offers Gulf employees a pay in- crease of 22 per cent over 31 months and increased shift dif- ferentials. was describing experiments with the technique to about 55 British, American and Canadian doctors at an International Col- lege of Surgeons meeting. The new technique involves blowing filtered, sterile air through a special cotton ring in the surgical sheet placed over a patient during an operation. This is combined with a flow of sterile air which blows over the instrument and operating tables creating a "bubble" of filtered air over the patient. Dr. Westwood said ite proce- dure is much more effective than higher-velocity "laminated air directed blasts of air, being tested in about 100 hospitals in the United States. As well, a complete unit, in- cluding special attachments for the wound drape, the filtering and other equipment, would cost about to com- pared with about for the laminated flow units. "And we know a blast ol sterile air.. does not protect the wound effectively." LIVING COSTS EASE BUENOS AIRES (AP) The cost of living in inflation-ridden Argentina decfined 2.9 per cent in June, after a 32.1-per-cent in- crease in the first five months of the year, the National Statis- tics Institute said Wednesday. The cost of living went up 64.1 per cent last year. The Peronist government that took office in May froze prices of 40 basic grocery items and ordered re- ductions in other consumer prices.
