Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE IETHBR1DGE HERALD Wedneiday, July 14, 1971 Search under way for savage slayer NEVADA CITY, Calif. (AP) _ Authorities in the Sierra foot- hills searched today for a sus- pect and motive in the savage slaying of two persons and the wounding of three others at a riverbank campground south of Nevada City. WG ic i w v e Wayne Brown said after he sur- veyed the campsites overlook- ing the pebble-strewn beach at a bend in the Bear River.

(AP) Drought burns tJhe pastures and turns the water holes to pow- der; crops needed to feed live- stock are lost; and bankers, watching a region's assets shri- vel, reduce credit. It is happening, in Texas and Oklahoma, mainly, where the worst drought in 15 years has held the farm and ranch indus- try in its grip for almost 10 months. There is no vast breakdown yet, as in the 1930s when this Weary MLAs sit until a.m. QUEBEC (CP) Weary members of the Quebec national assembly, under pressure by the Liberal government to clear up various pieces of legislation before a summer recess, sat in session until a.m. today be- fore a consumer protection bill received third reading.

Nothing of that magnitude ex- s now, but a combination of Jrought, tight credit and spiral- g costs is forcing souhtwest priculture to the wall. John C. White, Texas commis- oner of agriculture, calls the Jrought a disaster that has al- ready cost the state's farmers md ranchers million this ear. President Nixon orderec rought relief in mid-April in IB form of agriculture-depart ment loans and sale of govern ment-owned feed at reducec >rices to stockmen and farmers n designated counties of Texas, ater similar relief was ex- ended to adjacent portions of Iklahoma and New Mexico. Except for the loans federal xpenditures for drought relief m the area are difficult to esti- mate. A U.S. Department of Agricul- ture official guessed the value of all direct assistance for the hree-state area probably did- not exceed more than mil- lion as of July 1. Of that esti- mate, million was accounted for by the loans to fanners and ranchers. White says more direct help is needed to save the southwest cattle industry and crop produc- ers from wholesale bankrupt- cies. The ranchers are particu- larly vulnerable. Farmers and ranchers throughout the drought area are hard pressed for credit, their principal source of operating capital. Already caught in an infla- tion-induced squeeze between low prices and rising production costs, the drought has stretched the thin line of profit to the breaking point. Job picture said bleak for grads EDMONTON (CP) Mi- chael Zuk of the University of Alberta Canada Manpower Cen- tre confirmed here what most graduates already know, the over-all job picture for them is bleak. The university's jobless files are bulging, but Mr. Zuk said that1 some graduates working outside their field are still reg- istered at the office hoping to find more suitable jobs. Mr. Zuk says teachers ap- pear to be hardest hit because of a large graduating class and limited opportunities. Arts and science graduates are also hav- ing a tough time. Although en- gineering students are finding the job opportunities scarce, most have found employment. Graduates of the faculties of law, dentistry, medicine, li- brary science and pharmacy are experiencing some prob- lems but most have found work with little difficulty.' WASHINGTON (Reuter) In a significant victory for the Lockheed Aircraft Corp. and its TriS'tar airbus project, the Se- nate banking committee ap- proved a bill Tuesday night that would provide up to billion in loan guarantees for financially- troubled companies. Under the bill, a three-man board would decide who could receive such aid. Lockheed is seeking a government guaran- tee of million in bank loans to complete its TriStar airbus, which is powered by British- built Rolls-Royce RB-211 en- gines. The bill, a substitute for one which would have helped only Lockheed, would authorize the loan guarantees under tough conditions suggested last month by Arthur Burns, chairman of the Federal Reserve Board. To qualify, a company must show that failure to get the loan would have adverse and serious effects on the regional or na- tional economy. A majority of the board must also find that credit was not otherwise avail- able on reasonable conditions. before Congress adjourns Aug. 6 for a month-long summer re cess. The board making the loans now will consist of Burns Treasury Secretary John Con nally, and the chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of the district in which the loan appli cant is located. The regional Federal Reserve Bank chairman was added to Rodeo are hardy group "We reallv don't know who I can't throw any light on the looking Sheriff -.attef.

PM Heath restates ECM stand LONDON (CP) Prime Min- ister Heath restated his conten- tion today that Canada and Aus- tralia do not want to have spe- cial links with an enlarged Eu- ropean Common Market. Speaking at a Conservative conference to strengthen his de- mand for party support on the Market entry bid, Heath argued that Britain, in conducting its negotiations with Europe, also worked on behalf of Common- wealth interests. "From this point of view, the result is a highly satisfactory he said. "So far from cutting ourselves off from the Commonwealth, we have achieved a position in which 28 out of the 30 Common- gery at Sacramento Medical Centre for head wounds. SUFFER INJURIES Injured less seriously were Kenneth Garbe, 20, of Applegate in neighboring Placer County, and his wife Jean, 23. Brown said the killer supped into the campground about 11 p.m. Monday. He first confronted the Barges at their tent. "This guy threw open the flap said 'Hi that's all I remember him Garbe said. "He was grinning, sort of growling." Garbe said the attacker peared to be a sickle. He and the attacker struggle d and "then the guy ran away from the tent." Garbe said he saw the man attacking Satan and the other two women at next tent about 30 feet away. 'GUY SWINGING' "There was a light In the tent. I saw this guy swinging at ev- erybody in sight." Garbe said he heard three shots, apparently fired by Satan, whose holster was empty although it held a. pistol earlier Monday. Brown said the attacker ap- parently fled with Satan's pistol, a .41-calibre magnum revolver.

Although some people might agree with the word "numb- skull' and certainly with "dyn- it just so happened the person in question was a 150- pound cowboy from California who likes to ride bulls, the most dangerous event in rodeo. Bill Nelson cf San Francisco slid his gloved hand into the braided rope handle attached to a belt around the bull's body and lowered himself gingerly onto its back as it stood quietly in the chute like any self- respecting case of dynamite not bothering anybody. When the gate opened1, how- ever, the bull exploded into the corral in a series of contortions aimed at just one thing put- ting the 27-year-old cowboy in the dirt where horns and hooves could be put to good use. The tactics didn't work. Eight seconds later, as required by Canadian Rodeo Cowboys' As- sociation rules, Nelson had completed his ride and man- aged to get off the bull and away. Worth 71 points, the ride put him on top in the first day of the second go round of bull riding at the stampede. He tied for second in the first go round.

DUET HAS DOUBLE BUBBLE (COUNT wealth countries can have spe- cial links of then- own with the enlarged community. "The other two, Canada and Australia, did not wish to have them." This Is the second time in re- cent days that Heath has made public statements suggesting that a special relationship with Europe was available to Canada and that Canada did not want it. When he first made this state- ment at a press conference last week, a Canadian relationship was available to developing countries but not to cuch highly industrialized countries as Can- ada and Australia.

Mrs. Getty was a granddaugh- ter of the late Augustus John, the famed British portrait painter and muralist, and a daughter of William Pol, a Dutch artist who lives in Lon- don. She and Getty, third son of American oil billionaire Paul Getty, were married in Rome in 1966. Getty and his first wife were divorced. Getty told police he had Initi- ated divorce proceedings against his Javanese-born sec- ond wife in London two months ago. He said she left Rome with then- three-year-old son, Tara, to live at their house in London. Getty said his wife arrived hi Rome alone Saturday to dis- cuss him with either the possi- bility of a reconciliation or ar- rangements for a divorce. 66.

The driver slumped over the wheel and died in hospital. His companions returned the fire, but the gun- men escaped in the darkness.
