Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Rail group grease-monkeys keep old locomotive going TORONTO (CP) Old ]057, a coal-powered locomo- tive lhat once steamed and grunted to tie Canada to- gether, may Boon chug a link between the nation's past and its present. The eight-wheeler, laid off in 1'JliO as sleek diesel-pow- ered engines took over the steel ol Canada's railroads, survives thanks to the Ontario Hail Association, an unlikely group of roundhouse grease- monkeys. Its members include a draltsman, a computer pro- grammer and a policeman who visit 1057 just about every night to repair its tired wheels and stokers. The association members don overalls alter tlie'u- regu- lar jobs to tackle the grimy laslt of resloring another steam locomotive inside a Ca- nadian Pacific Railway round- house in Toronto. 1873 GOAL SET The association is a non- profit organization of nearly 300 members who have a 1973 goal of a live museum and a steam railway operating with renovated engines and coaches on an c I g h t-m i I e track running north from Georgetown. John Coulter of the associa- tion looked at 1057 and said: "If something like that be- comes destroyed and lost, there is no way that anylliing re-created in the future will be able to have that intangible quality of actually having been a part of our history." In daylight hours, Mr. Coul- ter is vice-president ol a de- velopment fi r m's technical service company. James Brown, association president, said thai although no formal agreement has been reached with Canadian Na- tional Hallways, railway offi- cils have expressed enthusi- asm lor the idea of granting track rights on a rarely-used portion of railline between Georgetown and Barrio. The association plans to run the trains on what it calls the Credit Valley Railroad. RESTORE COACHES Besides 1057, the association is renovating 12 coaches, two cabooses, one tank car, three combination baggage and coach cars and another his- ANGLO'S Radio TV Listings Program! lifted by the radio and telovition tratfoni.

Burton, husband of film star Elizabeth Taylor, added that he hopes to settle at Oxford in two years, where he probably will hold tutorials on Shake- speare and the theatre. He discussed his plans follow- ing a ceremony here at which a cheque from his wife was handed over to the United Nations Children's fund. Burton, a one-time Oxford student himself, earlier this year was made an honorary fellow of SI. Peter's College, Oxford, after giving to the college. He said: "I shall sit as a fellow of St. Peter's and a don I am prepared to spend the rest of my life at apart from the winters. "We like the sun and have this passion for Mexico. We shall probably spend the win- ters there." Burton said giving up acting does not bother him, "I hate he said. "1 can't bear it. After the initial excitement it becomes tedious." CBC scraps plans for RCMP drama TORCWrO CCP) The CBC lias scrapped plans for a television drama which had been planned lo mark next year's 100th anniversary of the RCMP, CBC officials say. Grahams Woods, the writer for the project, described the action as "'a Jama backlash." "The CBC now is very con- cerned about spending too much money in any one thing."

Tiie Whiteoaks of Jalna, en expensive series based on Mazo de Ja Roche's saga, was can- celled earlier by the network when only partially complete. The RCMP drama was to have been a 90-minule produc- tion called The Long March. It was lo have involved 10 leading actors, 30 supporting players and at least 100 extras. Four weeks of location shooting in Al- berta had been planned for the end ot the summer. Thorn Benson, CBC entertain- ment director, said the CBC mil be doing "some program, but not this expensive one, which really was about the birth of Western Canada." By ARTHUR L. GAVS110N LONDON (AP) Britain's Labor party wants the voters lo give it a mandate to tighten the screws on the free-enterprise system. "Cooperation instead ol competition" is the watch- word. The party lost power two years ago and hopes to regain it within a year or two. This week, in words, it issued a ten- tative preview ol its electoral manifesto, or platform. It served notice that a future Labor government means to na- tionalize or extend state partici- pation in vast new sectors of industry and the national econ- omy. Among likely targets for state takeovers the document listed ports, Pharmaceuticals, finan- cial institutions, shipbuilding, parts of the aircraft industry, minerals, development land, Ihe oil and gas resources of Ihe North Sea, even automobile and other insurance concerns. Taking a 10-year look ahead at the country's problems and prospects, the program said Britain under Labor rule could ensure jobs for all with stale price-fixing and people getting priority over profits. OPPOSE PROFIT "We aim lo bring about a so- ciety based on co-operation in- stead of the pol- icy slalement said. "Where pro- duction is for people's needs, not for private profit, where community care is available to all and where personal relation- ships are based on equality and international relationships o f mutual respect." Wilh the promise of a "fairer tax Labor's planners set forth a scries of proposals designed to thwart lax dodgers and lo reverse "massive lax handouts for (he wealthy" at- tributed to Prime Minister Ed- ward Heath's Conservative gov- ernment. These proposals included: wealth tax starting at a low rate for those possessing more than at today's values and rising lo higher rates for "those with vast for- tunes." Tliis would involve "an immediate contribution in capi- tal taxation." taxation for higher income groups. redistribulion of wealth in the counlry generally. "The richest one per cent of the popu- lation own one-third of the na- tion's wealth while five per cent own about half and 10 per cent over the docu- ment observed. tax on "gratuitous trans- fers of meaning tax- avoidance gifts and other schemes. "The rates of tax would be such lhat large private fortunes could not be handed down from one generation lo Ihe next." Widows could count on reasonable exemptions. PLAN FOR DISCUSSION The program was labelled for discussion only, but party lead- ers who launched it said most proposals would find their way into the eventual election mani- festo. Heath's Conservatives have the right lo decide any time before June, 1975, lo call a new national ballot. Laborites SOUTHERN ALBERTA THEATRES CARDSTON Mayfair Theatre "GUMSHOE" In color.

The party reaffirmed its com- mitment to extend slate control over huge new areas of the pri- vate sector and it served notice of a plan to set up a stale hold- ,ng company. This would fit 'irms and industries into public ownership or go into partner- ship with private individuals or companies. Labor intends expanding and improving existing state enler- prises which include power, coal mines, railroads and steel. All mineral resources would taken over. So too would all development land and ports. Existing state-owned enter- prises would be encouraged to manufacture for themselves. As :he biggest customer, the Na- tional Health Service probably would seek a share in the own- ership of the pharmaceutical in- dustry. Banks and insurance firms might have to accept an element of public participation in their activities. ADULT NO.
