Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Conciliator named in mail dispute CALGARY (CP) Vancou- ver lawyer Hugh Ladner has been appointed conciliator in the 10-month-old contract dis- pute between the Canadian Postmasters Association (CPA) and the federal treasury board. D. A. Blackie, national pres- ident of the association, told a convention of Alberta and Northwest Territories postmas- ters that Mr. Ladner will meet both sides in Ottawa this week. He said he expected Mr. Lad- ner would know whether or not he could settle the dispute by Thursday, although the Van- couver lawyer has until June 19 to make a report. If the conciliator fails to re- solve the remaining 27 items in dispute, the CPA would apply for a conciliation board and as a final resort the postmasters could strike. "But we are not prepared to talk about that Mr. Blackie said. "It won't be con- sidered until we have exhaust- ed all legal avenues." W. C. Ives, CPA national di- rector, said the postmasters are becoming militant and "are not laying back as in former years." He said the association has received assurances of support from other postal unions, but he declined to say the type of sup- port offered. Wages are the main item of contention and Mr. Ives said none of the association's members receive a salary com- parable to other similar public service positions. "First we want the treasury board to agree to a catch-up adjustment before we begin negotiating about percentage increases." Warranty measures planned on appliances and autos King's pledge angers Greek goy't ATHENS (Reuter) King Constantino's pledge to "fight as a soldier" to defend de- mocracy in Greece appears to have impressed some Greeks, but ft has angered the army- backed government which de- posed him. Die king had never been pop- ular with'the masses here, but his militant attitude following his deposition last week has won him some sympathy. At the same time, some offi- cials described tbs king's state- ment in Borne Saturday as and Greek news- papers were not allowed to pub- lish it today. Even an opposition and royalist newspaper re- frained from printing it. Officials here said King Ocn- stantine's apparent bid to be- come the symbol of opposition against the regime and his de- termination to rally the people could cost him deaily. The officials said that in addi- tion to the loss of the 17-miEIon- drachma, more than annual civil list, he could forfeit his personal property, including the Tatoi royal estate with its vast surrounding land near Athens. The Athens and Corfu Island royal palaces are understood to contain valuable works of art which belong to the royal fam- ily. These, too, could be fiscated by the government. The Greek cabinet, mean- while, was summoned today for the first of 11 meetings sched- uled this month to draft .the constitutional changes to pro- vide for a presidential republic, the functioning of political par- ties, and election of a president for four or five years. The changes will be put to a vote in a referendum, possibly July 29. Over the weekend four racking officers of the three services resigned. No reason was given for the resignations of Lt.-Gen. Nicholas Dambassis, Rear-Admirals Theodores Ma- nolopoulos and Aristeides Yan- nopoulos and Air Vice-Marshal Emmanuel Emmanuel. Some observers, however, linked them with an inquiry now in progress into a naval mutiny last month which precipitated the government's decision to abolish the monarchy. Monday, Junt 4, 1973 THE UTHMIDOI HERALD If Marcus Welby no big hit with would-be doctors ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Marcus Welby may be a hit in the television ratings, but he's not too popular with a group of would-be doctors from the Uni- versity of Michigan. Some of the medical school students are staging their own commencement v xercises Thursday to protest the selec- tion of Robert Young, who plays a doctor on the TV series, Mar- cus Welby, MD, as the gradu- ation speaker. David Morens, spokenaaii for the protesting students, said medical school seniors had placed Young third on a list oJ possible commencement speak- ers. First was Senator Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts. He declined the invitation, Morens said. The second choice was Dr Benjamin Spock. Morens saU the medical school's ezecutivi committee skipped right him and invited Young._______ TORONTO (CP) Ontario plans to introduce legislation this fall to cover warranties on home appliances and automo- biles, Premier William Davis said here. He also told the Automobile Dealer Associations of Ontario that legislation is planned to tighten controls over the is- suance of mechanical fitness certificates for motor vehicles. The premier said that the warranty legislation will be in- troduced in the fall, then de- layed so the government can hear submissions from manu- facturers and retailers. It will then be reintroduced in the spring of 1974. The legislation will be based on an Ontario Law Reform Commission report on consumer warranties and guarantees that was tabled in the legislature last year. The report recommended the -government enact legislation that would ensure consumers are given greater protection by guarantees and warranties. On automobile warranties, the commission said that the net rest.- of the ''warranty race" that began in 1960 was to "confuse the consumer and has not left him in essentially any better position at the end than he was in the beginning." "It is difficult to believe such exercises promote confi- dence in the fairness and de- pendability of automobile war- ranties." Mr. Davis said the legisla- tion governing mechanical fit- ness certificates would place greater emphasis on the con- trol of inspections and would be aimed at overcoming fraud- ulent issuance of the certifi- cates. "It will ensure that Inspec- tions are of high quality and that there is a uniform stand- ard of inspections across the Group promotes French breed of cattle CALGARY (CP) The blonde d'Aquitaine Association, formed during the weekend to import and promote this French breed of cattle, elected Garth Landeryou of Stavely, Alta., as its president. There now are about a dozen bulls of .this breed in Canada. Ken MacKenzie of Drayton Valley, Alta., owns the only fe- male. The breed was described by Dr. J. C. Rennie. head of the animal science department of the University of Guelph, as having extra heavy and red meat producing muscling on the hind quarters. Buy jeeps OTTAWA (CP) The armed forces will buy 816 jeeps from the United States Army for million, it was announced Fri- day. The vehicles will be used to replace some 700 jeeps that are 20 years or more old and to add some new ones to the fleet of the forces and the militia. The total system needs such vehicles. The defence department said the older jeeps that the forces have kept on the road are three times more expensive to main- tain than the new ones will be. The department, whose budget was frozen for the last three years, has had difficulty keeping many of its jeeps on the road. There have been reports it has looked in more than one country for used jeeps it could purchase and canabalize for spare parts. Mr. Davis said. The certificates are nec- essary in the sale of used motor vehicles and those that are registered in Ontario that come from other jurisdictions. Mr. Davis also told the car salesmen that Ontario has been pressing the federal govern- ment for 18 months to proclaim legislation making it illegal to roll back automobile odo- meters. Ministers try to unify policies LUXEMBOURG (AP) Common Market cabinet minis- ters gathered here today to try to unify their policies for the "Nixon Round" of trade talks beginning this f all. Prospects for early, clear-cut progress were slight, but the ministers hoped to find out whether the members want to work out a common stand be- fore mid-September when the world's major industrial non- Communist countries begin trade talks in Tokyo. The French have taken a comparatively firm stand to- ward future trade negotiations, while other members favor greater flexibility. Among policies pushed by Paris is preservation of the joint farm program of high price supports. Britain and some of the other market mem- bers are less than enthusiastic about the farm program since it benefits the French farmers the most. The United States would like to see negotiations allowing easier entry of U.S. agricultural products to the Common Mar- ket. Paris also seeks continuation of the common tariff wall set up by the original six market members, West Germany, France, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Belgium. The threee new members, Britain, Ireland and Denmark, are ad- justing to the barrier. One decision expected from today's consultations was an in- vitation to nearly 50 under- j developed countries, most of i them former European colonies, j to go to Brussels July 25 for talks about associate member- ship in the market.
