No blame attached in girl's death A Lethbridge c o rone r' s- jury, after hearing three hours of often-conflicting tes- timony, Wednesday failed to come to any conclusions sur- rounding the death June 6 of a four-year-old city girl, who apparently died en route to hospital from vomit blocking her respiratory tract. Offering no recommenda- tions and attaching no blame the six-man jury said the cir- cumstances under which PHARMACY FACTS FROM O. C. STUBBS Just the other day we were asked if the word 'vitamin' was an abbreviation for the words minerals'. On the face of it, the questioner was using log- lical thinking, but word has a Jquite different ound. Back I before World War II, a chemist Inamed Casimir was doing research work at the Lister In- stitute in London. He was look- ing for what he considered to be the vital substances in food which prevented the occurrence of pellagra, scurvy and beri- beri He found that an amine compound would cure beriberi in laboratory animals, and he used tbe words "vital" and "amine" to originate our word Of course you like to trade in a friendly and helpful atmos- phere?

The girl was the daughter of Mrs. David Vandervoort of 1227 Glacier Drive and her for- mer husband, Lloyd Tudor of Lethbridge. Evidence at the inquest showed the vomitting was caused by a ruptured pan- creas. Dr. D. I. Farquhar, the Letbbridge pathologist who performed an autopsy on the child, told Coroner Dr. John Morgan that there are 13 fre- quent causes of pancreatitis.

The ruptured condition of the pancreas would have ex- isted for about two days, the pathologist said. When she was brought to the hospital, evidence show- ed, the left side of the girl's face was heavfly bruised. There were also bruises over her right eye and on the low- er back and some scratch- es on the abdomen.

HARVESTING REPAIRS? the "Oliver Dealer" in your for a complete supply of parts. Dfetribv- ted by OUVERINDUS1RIALSUPPLYLTD. 226 36th St. N. Plton. Lethbridg. 327-1571 or the "OLIVER DEALER" nearest yev Dr. Farquhar said, were ope or two days old. David Vandervoort, told the inquest that tbe night be- fore the girl died she fell down a set of stairs outside the fourplex where they fived. When the girl came running to tell him of tbe accident, Mr. Vandervoort said, she fen down the stairs leading to their suite. These falls, he said, caused the bruises on the girl's face. Dr. Farquhar, however, told the inquest, that in his opinion the bruises could not have been caused by the fall. Dr. Edmund Cairns, a pe- diatrician who examined the body, 'also said tbe bruises were not compatible with a fall. Mr. Vandervoort said tbe day after the girl bad fallen she became sick, began vomitting and having ic trouble breathing. He rush- ed her to the hospital at .about p.m. As he was carrying Jack- lyn into tbe hospital, Mir. Van- dervoort testified, her arm went limp and he shouted through an open window to nurses: '1 think my daugh- ter's died." However, medical evidence in a report presented to tbe inquest from Dr. Kenneth Holt, attending at the hospital at the time, sug- gested the girl may have been dead for some time be- fore she was brought to the hospital. Mr. Vandervoort further testified that he was respon- sible for punishing the chil- dren but said be would only spank them and send them to bed. Last year, while the Van- dsrvoorts were living in Gra- num, the department of health and social development was called in by their landlady to investigate the way the chil- dren were being treated. But in a letter read into the record from a social worker attached to the department's Lethbridge branch, the sotiat could find no evi- dence that the children were mistreated. Det. Sgt. Terry Wauters testified that he interviewed about 15 or 20 neighbors of tbe Vandervoorts after the girl died and aU said the children were treated well. The girl's grandmother, Mrs. Muriel Fames, told the inquest that although Mr. Vandervoort bad a bad temp- er and the children seemed to be frightened of him, she didn't think the children were treated badly.

Phone 32S-33SI Group seeks to soften downtown with trees A plan to soften the down- town landscape with num- erous large trees is the ob- ject of a committee being organized by Dr. Van E. Christou. Dr. Christou told The Her- ald this morning that in cord with the plan, the new downtown Safeway store will be surrounded by trees and shrubs. Confirmation of the new landscaping plan was received earlier this week. Downtown Lethbridge used to have a much heavier pop- ulation of shade trees, he said, but as more large buildings went up and streets became and parking more of a probeta, the trees have been steadily reduced. The com- Crop inspection for insurance Fanners not expecting to harvest crops because of drought conditions have been warned to seek an insurance inspection before taking alter- nate-action. The Alberta Hail and Crop Insurance Corporation re- ports poKcyhoJders under the all risk crop insurance pro- gram are reminded not to des- troy any insured acreage un- less it has first been inspect- ed and released by the corpor- ation. Failure to seek inspection result in toss of cover- age on insured acreages. Any fanner who intends to abandon any crop or to use it for fodder purposes, must first file a daim and make sure the crop is inspected. Claims should be sent by registered mail to the corpor- ation in Calgary. The corporation reports very few claims have been re- 4 injured in collision Four-persons were injured in a two-vehicle collision at file intersection of 4th Avenue and 12th Street B. N. Thurs- day afternoon. Ronald William Krikke, id, 329 St. A. N., operator of one vehicle, received -cute to the leg and his passenger Lloyl Krikke, 15, of the same address, suffered a concus- sion. Injured in the second ve- hicle were driver Ferndinand Schneider, 46, with cuts to the head and Ramooa Sctoei- der, 44, suffered whiplash in- juries and minor cute to the body. Both reside at 707 23rd St. N. ceived to date because of the drought conditions. But with continued hot and dry conditions, more farmers may decide to turn cattle into fields or to cut crops for hay to.ease the feed .shortage sit' uation in the south. mittee of downtown business- men and property owners hopes to reverse this trend, with the co-operation of the city parks department. "Trees are not inconsistent with downtown said Dr. Christou." Indeed they make it much easier ti Eve with concrete and as- phalt. All of our downtown streets should "be lined with large trees." Dr. Christou drew attention to the tree-planting done by the Center Village Mall peo- ple along 13th St. N., the land- scaping on the New Gulf ser- vice station on 13th St. S. and the effort of some other de- velopers, such as the A and W Drive-in on 2nd St. South, to retain large trees already on their property. "Lethbridge is often com- plimented for its said Dr. Christou, "but not in the downtown area. We have been altogether too axe-Bap- py." Fair board prepares changes for next Two special committees have already been set up by the Letbbridge and District Exhibition Board to plot changes for next year's fair. Two major changes will be moving the midway and sep- arating exhibits from live- stock showings. Exhibition board president Fred Pritcfa- ard said that a revived pub- lic interest in crafts should also result in their being brought back on display. But he said different tfpes of crafts from home ones are being considered. The board set up the committees this week at-a meeting to review this year's operation. One will be concerned with grounds layout and the other 'with programming, Mr. Pritchard said. "There will be a consider- able change in the midway area to improve traffic flow and get more of it on to pay- be said. "Exhibits win be separated from livestock except where they are definitely related or year where an exhibitor specifical- ly requests to be in with the livestock vice-firesi- dent Doug Shackleford said. "This year we're talking about next year's fair much he said. "This year's is over and done with. It's time to plan for next year's right now." Now Available!
