Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 31, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE UTHMIDGE HERALD Tuetdoy, July 31. 1973 News in brief Meat cuts nearly gone CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) The president of a large retail food chain says United States supermarkets will- run out of many cuts of meat by this weekend. "The cattle simply are not being brought to Lyle Everingham, president of Kro- ger Co. of Cincinnati, said Mon- day. The beef shortage has forced Kroger to lay off 400 workers in 13 meat-processing plants, Ev- eringham said. He predicted further layoffs unless the Phase 4 price ceiling on beef is lifted.

Trucks and taxis on strike SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) The trucking strike against President Salvador AUende's leftist government appeared to- day to be developing into a much broader protest move- ment. Leon Vilarin, leader of the striking truck owners, said from hiding that owners of the private buses and taxis that provide most of the country's public transportaiton are join- ing the work stoppage. Leaders of the bus and taxi owners could notbe reached ap- parently because they also have gone underground. But there was a noticeable lack of public transportation late Monday night in Santiago, a city of three million. The truckers led a wave of nationwide strikes last October that turned into a general pro- test movement against Al- lende's socialist program and cost Chile million.

LOUIS (AP) The gen- eral board of the Christian Church voted Monday in favor of amnesty for young men who violated United States draft laws during the Indochina war. The action came on a voice vote, without debate. The rec- ommendation goes to the church's general assembly, meeting Oct. 26-31 in Cincinnati. The resolution said amnesty for draft-law violators is con- sistent with the teachings of Jesus Christ and is a way of binding up U.S. war wounds. The resolution proposed "am- nesty for all persons in legal jeopardy for violations of civil or military law related to the Indochina war."

It hit its best price in sev- eral weeks in Frankfurt, Paris and London, but trading was light.

The play, Portrait of Angel- ica, is in rehearsal and was scheduled for performances at the festival, presented by the Banff Centre, Aug. 4 to 18. The play was commissioned by the centre but the playwright said he has not yet received pay- ment for it. In a prepared statement, Mr. Ryga, an instructor at the Banff School of Fine Arts, said he has recently been involved "in moves to reinstate two young Indian arts students from the Cold Lake area in Alberta, who were expelled from the school by the administration on charges of possible possession and use of drugs." Handling of the incident was "an administrative he said, indicating it was only one in a series of occurrences which have caused him to become dis- illusioned with the centre which, besides the fine arts school, also houses a school of management studies and a con- ference division. "This is no longer a school for the development of a Cana- dian said Mr. Ryga, who attended the school of fine arts as a student 22 years ago. "It is primarily a hotel complex with an expensive summer school to take up the slack sea- son." He expressed concern that some members of the adminis- tration earn "some of the high- est corporate salaries in the country" and occupy lavish residences while service staff "work at or near the minimal industrial wage permissible un- der the Alberta Labor Act." He said the administration was "building a case after the event" in connection with the two Indian youths. David and Robert Mvskego of Beaver Crossing, Alta.. who were ex- pelled.

Escapees ordered to hang FORSYTH, Mont. (AP) A district court judge Monday sentenced two Idaho jail es- capees to bang for the kidnap- ping and murder of a Montana jeweler. The two, Wallace L. Rhodes Jr., 25, and James M. Shields, 21, showed no emotion when the sentence was pronounced. They were convicted July 19 in the death of Donald Kalberg, 48, Hardin. Mont, whose bul- let-riddled body was found last Sept. 18 at a deserted highway rest area in cattle-range coun- try about 20 miles west of For- syth. Judge Alfred B. Coate order- ed that the two be executed on or before Sept. 13. He then rec- ommended that they appeal both the sentence and the jury's verdict. Montana law stipulates that to the hospital for treatment. But Mr. Tanner said the hos- pital could not return to nor- mal operations all at once be- cause it would put an unbear- able strain on the institution's other staff and adminstrative services. He said the hospital should be fully functioning within a week. Kitchen, cleaning, laundry and maintenance personnel at the hospital, members of Local 41 of the Canadian Union of Tough campaign fund rules set elective public employees, had been on stike at the hospital since June 11. They voted Sunday to accept a 27-month contract which pro- vides for a 37% hour work week by Jan. and a four- step salary increase that would raise wages by a month. Wages for non-medical person- nel at the hospital now range from a week for maids to for electricians. The hospital reduc- ed its patient load during the strike to 370, with medical and other non-union staff filling io for those on strike. WASHINGTON (Renter) The Senate, acting in the wake of the Watergate scandal, ao- proved tough new campaign fi- nancing legislation Monday, limiting individual contributions in any election year to The Senate approved and sent the bill to the House of Repre- sentatives by 82-to-8 vote. The legislation was spurred in part from revelations that some individuals had given millions of dollars to candidates in the 1972 U.S. election. The total allowable contribu- tions from any individual to all candidates or committees for candidates for federal office would be in any election year under the new measure. The present campaign financ- ing law is considered full of Blood bank supply low in Alberta EDMONTON (CP) Vaca- tions and other summer dis- tractions have left the Alberta blood bank's supply dangerous- ly low, says a provincial Red Cross official. Gary Cook, director of the Red Cross donor panel, said supplied of life-giving blood have fallen steadily during the last few weeks. "We generally need about 900 pints to meet hospital de- mands but now we only have 330 in he said in an interview. The service supplies 96 pitals, including the one at Yel- lowknife, N.W.T. "If a hospital calls in for 10 pints, we cut it down to what the laboratory supervisor says we can Mr. Cook said. He said the shortage is most severe in a negative and 0 negative blood types. executions be by hanging. last execution in Montana was in 1943 when Philip Coleman, a Negro, was hanged for murder, be sold. Connecticut recycles trash HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Connecticut announced Monday a state wide recycling plan that eventually will covert all its garbage into electricity, fuel and resuable metal and glass. The state department of en- vironmental protection unveil- ed a 20 year. miDion blueprint for solid waste dis- posal that calls for Connecticut to build 10 "resource recovery beginning in 1976, sep- arate refuse into reusable ma- terials such as aluminum, glass and ferrous metals, which will loopholes, allowing individuals to donate virtuafiv unlimited amounts to candidates or their election committees. MAXIMUMS SETT UP Under the new proposal, any individual candidate for federal office would be authorized to get only out fo the total any one person can con- tribute. This would be broken down to for his primary election campaign, another for a run-off in the event there were no individual first-vote winners in the primary and another 000 for the general election. The legislation contains a new formula designed to limit the total amount of money presi- dential candidates can receive in the next election and pri- maries to a total of about million. President Nixon is reported to have spent more than mil- lion dollars in his successful campaign for president in 1972, while Democratic Senator George McGovern spent nearly million in his unsuccessful bid to unseat Nixon. 'American campers a problem' PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. (CP) Minister Gra- ham Lea said Monday that United States campers and trailers should be banned from the province because "we are running out of places to camp." Mr. Lea told a Chamber of Commerce meeting here that campers don't contribute anything while they are here and it costs a lot of money for us to provide them with the ser- vices they require." "They are slow, awkward and the people driving them act like they don't know what they are said Mr. Lea. "We are running into a real problem here because we are running out of spaces to he said. "When it gets to that, British Columbians must have first priority." He said he had no quarrel with tourists who use hotels and motels, but those using camp- ers "cause more problems than they are worth."
