Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 28-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD July 1974 Police stymied in murder cases of six British Columbia women VICTORIA RCMP appealed to the public Thursday for information on the murders of six women in various parts of British Columbia over a period of nearly five years. Chief Supt. Mark Marcus told a news conference that the investigation into the women's deaths has down and frankly we are looking for all the help we can get He said the police feel there is a definite connection between three of the killings where the women were brutally beaten and sexually assaulted and are investigating the possibility that all six are somehow linked. The RCMP are also investigating the possibility of a connection between these killings and the death of a 15 year old Port B.C girl whose semi nude body was found Tuesday in her hometown area. Supt. Marcus said the police have no suspects in the killings at this time and the only possible clue is a blanket that was used to wrap an unidentified body found near Alta. May 26. The body had been sawed in half. He described it as a blue and white reversible blanket with a floral pattern that included a chevron like design. It was an he and possibly someone would be able to identify it. The deaths being treated as murders and under investigation Gloria L. found near Williams Oct.

The sign on the front door expresses the feelings of the household. By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Robert pondering his future in is expected to carry on as leader of the Progressive Conservative party for a year and a half possibly stepping down at the party's next convention in 1976. A Progressive Conservative caucus has been called tor Aug. 14 in Ottawa by the party's whip Robert McKinley. In the event that the government calls parliament before the date scheduled for caucus the date will be advanced. Surprisingly Tom the party's house was defeated. The first session of the 30th parliament will be called probably late in September or early in October. Walter Baker Conservative for Ottawa's Grenville-Carleton is deputy house leader and probably will be named house leader. At Mr. Stanfield's own re- quest the Progressive Con- servative party at its general meeting in March this year in- corporated a provision that No automatic jail terms for non-payment of fines VANCOUVER Automatic jail sentences are no longer being handed out to those who fail to pay fines levied under British Columbia laws The provincial attorney general's department said Thursday police have been instructed not to serve warrants of committal on those who have failed to pay their fines The order follows amendments approved in the last house to the Provincial Summary Convictions which were given royal assent June 20. Before any committal can now be the defendant first must appear in court to answer a certificate of claim. Those who have wilfully failed to pay a fine could still go to jail. The amendment does not apply to fines levied under the federal Criminal Code or to fines levied before June 20. Those who have not paid their or who failed to keep up levied before that day are still subject to committal by warrant. Attorney Alex MacDonald introduced the changes last May in an he to reduce the number of jailings of those who can't meet fine payments. Mr. MacDonald said 15 per cent of all those in provincial jails are there because they failed to pay tines.

A motion is to be voted on at each general meeting every two years through which the delegates can register whether they want a leadership convention. It is in effect a motion of confidence in the leadership. It was voted on for the first time at the meeting last March and Mr. Stanfield's leadership was overwhelmingly endorsed. In March 1976 when the next general meeting takes place the delegates will again have the motion before them. This time they will be voting on whether to continue in office a leader who has now suffered his third loss to Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. It is likely that before that meeting is called Mr. Stanfield will have indicated his desire to step down and make way for a younger man. He was 60 years old last April. By March 1976 the provincial elections in Ontario and Alberta will have been held. Premier William Davis of Ontario and Premier Peter Lougheed of Alberta will have completed four years in the fall of 1975. Both premiers will have held their elections and either will have been returned to office or defeated by the time the next federal Conservative general meeting is held in 1976. Both premiers have been mentioned as possible new Conservative leaders along with the names of several members of parliament. In a year and a half the MP's will have become better known and in a stronger position to enter the leadership contest. The federal party caucus in August is expected to agree to carry on with Mr. Stanfield as leader. The first step facing him as leader is to pull the caucus together. The Conservatives are natu- rally disappointed that they lost ground in Ontario but heartened by the increases in strength they registered in western Canada. Settlement reached N.H.
