Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 2, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THINK ART WILLIAMS AGENCIES LTD. FOR REAL ESTATE AND INSURANCE ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL for oil your Trovel Requirements CENTRE V1UAGE PhonM 328-8184 328-3201 The Lethbtidge Herald SECOND SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, Friday, June 2, 1972 PAGES 11 TO 22 NOW IN OUR NEW LOCATION CECIL OXENBURY DISPENSING OPTICIANS LTD. 101 PROFESSIONAL BLDG. 740 rofessor of archeology at the Jniversity of Calgary, said tha J of L could have helped save he site, or at least the critical parts ot it, before the predicted leniise of the location tills fall, >y agreeing to go ahead with he excavation project at a spe- cial meeting early in May. The charge that the U of L responsible stems from the [early Hay meeting when a foundation from Calgary offer- ed to put up for the ex- cavation work. The representative of Ihe U of L, a member of the anthro- pology department, was defin- ifely against the project. Dr. Reeves said the represen- tative felt the project wouldn't be carried out properly, even though Ihere is no archeological department at the U of L. The Calgary foundation then offered the to the uni- versity direclly so it could carry out the excavation but this was also refused. Dr. Reeves assumes the reasons would be lack of the basic equipment and a lack of trained personnel. The whole episode started when the Fort Chap- ter of the Alberta Historical So- Two found guilty in assault charge By LAIUIY BENNETT Herald Staff Writer Michael Lee Swallow, 25, of Topeka, Kansas, and Patrick Alexander, 19, of Lethbridge, were found guilty in a special session of magistrate's court Thursday of a charge of assault causing bodily harm to John David Baird, April 15. Tiie seven hour trial ended with a summation by Judge U W. Elford which resulted in an overnight remand for Swal- low and a two week remand for Alexander. Swallow was sentenced this morning to a two month jail term for his part in the assault of Baird in his home, to run concurrently the two month sentence he received for as- sault causing bodily harm and another two month sentence for causing a disturbance. Alexander was remanded to give a probation officer time to prepare a pre sentencing re. port. The report will be used to help Judge Elford determine how Alexander should be sen- tenced. During the trial major differ- ences in testimony nesses and defense witnesses developed. John Baird and three other persons who had been in his home during the night in ques- tion told the court Swallow had used a double barrelled shot- gun as a club and had struck Baird in the forehead. Additional evidence indicated Alexander had kicked Baird after he had been felled by the blow from the stock of the gun. Both the Crown and defense evidence indicated Jack Stan- ley Soltys had been involved in the fracas which finally ended in a serious gunshot wound in the stomach to Soltys and a charge of attempted murder against Baird. Evidence presented by Swal- low and Alexander refuted the actions accounted in the Crown witness testimony. Judge Elford accepted Baird's testimony when he told the court a party at his home had gotten out of hand and no one had paid any attention to evidence b e tween of the Crown wit- REUEVtS GAS FAINS COME AND HELP US CELEBRATE OUR GRAND OPENING of our new premises at T403 3rd Avo.

In an attempt to make them leave, Baird and another per- son living at the house brought out two loaded shotguns. The fight which resulted end- ed only after Baird was beaten and Soltys was shot. Swallow has been previously convicted of assault causing bodily harm to Al Hober, man- ager of the El Hancho Motor Hotel, and causing a disturb- ance in a pubh'c place stem- ming from the same incident March 18, receiving concurrent month sentences in both charges. The joint charge against Swallow, Allen Louis Blomme, 25, of Lethbridge and Michael D. Waggoner, 29, of Anchorage, Alaska, was withdrawn by the Crown. No reason was given. Murray Sihvon, Lelhbridge agent for the attorney-general, said Swallow will be deported to the U.S. following his jail term. cicty and the Lelhbridgo Cen- tre of the Alberta Archeologi. cal Society expressed an inter- est in having the Fort Whoop- Up site excavated. There wera no funds available so efforts remains stagnant. Interest was renewed when the vandalism became promi- nent. The artifact hunters wera actually taking odds and ends and in the process destroying the really valuable parts of the site. "They destroyed the garbage pits, structures, foundations and pallisades and these ara more important than the arti- said Dr. Reeves. "The structures and the arch- itecture are the parts which remains largely unknown to historians." Inquiries were received from the Historic Sites Services in Ottawa (a federal agency) but tliis body was out of money also. Dr. Reeves and other Inter- ested historians and students applied for a Opportuni- ties for Youth grant that would jive employment to 20 students 10 from Lethbridge and 10 from Calgary. This was turned down, leaving the project with no money. The Calgary foundation, which wishes to re mam anony- mous, then told the project or- ganizers it would come up with the to cover the rest of the expenses for the project. When the OFY grant was turned the foundation al- lowed its offer to stand so ths critical parts of the site could sfill be excavated and preserv- ed for history. At the May meeting, repres- entatives of the Glenhow Alber- ta Foundation, Riveredge Foun- dation in Calgary, U of C, U ef L, the Lethbridge section of tha Alberta Archeological Society, and the Sir Alexander Gait Museum finally decided that all the artifacts should be left in Lethbridge. This is when the project was turned down by the U of L rep- resentative. Dr. Heeves said the refusal is now irreversible, since tha money from the Calgary foun- dation has since been commit- ted to other sources.
