Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta -Tutiday, Jont 5, 1973 THE LETHBRIQOE HERALD 17 Find hideaway of wanted man MONTREAL (CP) La Presse says it has found the Costa Rican hideaway of Nor- man Leblanc, a former Mon- treal accountant charged here with misappropriation of million in mutual funds. In a story from San Jose, Costa Rica, the newspaper says its reporter found Leblanc liv- ing with his family in a heavily guarded villa outside San Jose. Fired pastor stays with churches EDMONTON (CP) Rev. Douglas Berry will remain as minister of Ardrossan and Sal- isbury United churches, the Al- berta conference of the United Church decided yesterday. In upholding an appeal by the Clover Bar charge board against Mr. Berry's dismissal by the Yellowhead Presbytery, the conference ruled he would have to relinquish all manage- ment functions with a condom- inium for retired people in Sherwood Park. As well, discussions between the Yellowhead Presbytery and the Clover Bar charge congre- gation, supervised by the Al- berta conference, will be held to determine ways the charge's trust fund may be used before anything further is done in re- gard to a second condominium. Delegates at the final session of the conference's annual meeting voted for the recom- mendations presented by Rev. V7. Aitken Harvey of Camrose, chairman of a special three- man commission appointed by the conference executive to look into the question. The commission, in its five- page report, is critical of the Clover Bar charge board, the Yellowhead Presbytery and Mr. Berry for not maintaining bet- ter relations. It's first recommendation that the conference instruct all concerned, the presbytery, the minister, the board, officials and people of the pastoral charge, to make every effort towards reconciliation. Pattern A warrant was issued here last month for Leblanc's arrest on charges of misappropriation of umds, breach of trust and failure to account. Leblanc is an associate of United States financier Robert Vesco and a former vice-presi- dent of Investors Overseas Ser- vice Ltd. IOS, the mutual fund company taken over by Vesco in 1971 after the financial em- pire of Bernie Cornfield col- lapsed. Leblanc and Vesco are de- fendants in a U.S. civil suit launched by the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission which alleged misuse of million in assets of foreign mutual fluids managed by IOS. La Presse says Leblanc told its reporter he does not know Vesco's whereabouts. WILL RETURN The nswspaper quotes Le- blanc as saying he will return to Quebec this summer as he does every year, despite the warrant for his arrest. La Presse says its icporter and a photographer from Time nisgazine waited for more than three hours outside the villa be- fore talking to Leblanc. The son of Costa Rican Presi- dent Jose Figueres was in the Leblanc villa at the time, the paper adds. La Presse also says Leblanc will not make any public state- ments for at least three weeks at the request of his lawyers. At a press conference a week ago, Leblanc accused the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency of spying on him and also said he and Vesco supply informa- tion to the U.S. Senate commit- tee now investigating the Wat- ergate affair. Last quota controls removed WINNIPEG (CP) The Ca- nadian wheat board has re- moved the last quota restric- tions on prairie grain deliver- ies by opening wheat and bar- ley quotas in all remaining shipping blocks, effective im- mediately. Deliveries of all prairie grains now are on an open quota.

The finance minister had the happy embarrassment of find- ing that his predicted 1972-73 budgetary deficit of million has turned out instead to be a million surplus. Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield sought an explanation for such an "incredible" switch. "Has the minister any ex- planation as to how as recently six weeks ago, he could 'have predicted a balanced budget for the fiscal year ending March 31, whereas in fact a surplus of al- most half a billion dollars was actually the asked Mr. Stanfield. "How could the minister and his officials be as much as'half a billion dollars out six weeks before the end of the fiscal' year. j "The federal finance depart- ment was nearly million out in its fiscal Mr. Stanfield said. Mr. Turner in response to Mr. Stanfield's question began a long explanation. Progressive Conservative House Leader Ged Baldwin jumped up on a point of order and protested that "there might be a specific time under the rules of the house when the minister can make apologies, but not now." Mr. Turner objected to the in- terjection pointing out that he was simply giving the opposi- tion leader the explanation Mr. Stanfield had requested. "The discrepancy Is wel within the range of one per ceni or two per cent found in the na- tional he said. "As a matter of fact this morning (Monday) Statistics Canada re- leased the revised national ac counts for the year 1572. "The gross national produc was moved up for the year 1972 from 5.5 per cent to 5.8 per cent.

The reduction in time in which elevator companies can load the cars without extra charge, will ensure "that cars are used as effectively and ef- ficiently as possible by allcriving them to turn round very said Mr. Lang, minis- ter responsible for the Canadian wheat board. 23 Gaunt 24 Intimation ACROSS -DOWN 1 Liquid 1 Guns (slang) measure (ab.) 2 Cain's victim 4 Skeleton part (Bib.) 8 Gambling 3 City in game Kentucky 12 Lincoln's 4 Basque cap nickname 5 Smell 13 European 6 Centaur river 7 Before 14 Minced oath 8 Dreads 15 Big state 9 Taj Mahal ISTVcomedi- site enne (2 Wading bjrd 18 Splinters U Poems 20 Certain exams Ancient 21 Burmese country wood sprite 19 Flower 22 Applications holders 24 Witches 26 Vipers 27 Tibetan urial 30 Detain in port 32 Bridal paths 34 halters SSScolders 36 Light brown 37 Withered 39 Relaxation 40 Skin orifice 41 Turkish headdress 42 Fall flower 45 Marking with a signet 49 (2wds.) 51 Auricle 52 Mine entrance 53 Exude 54 Health resort 55 Ribbed fabrics 56 Scatters, as hay 57 Account (coll.) 25 Wild ox of Celebes 26 Genus of geese 27 Flimsiest 28 Belonging to that girl 29 Hartebeest 31 Haunt 33 Make hard 38 Recommence 40 Nuisances tains front food 42 At a distance 43 Lateral part 44 Journey 46 Geraint's wife 47 City in California 48NabCcoll.)

"I refer to the enactment of the Canadian National-Air Can- ada guarantees legislation, the personal income tax refunds were much lower in the first quarter because the income tax measures for 1972 were still pending said Mr. Turner. He was cut short by Mr. Bald- win's protest. Methods studied to ease load on courts EDMONTON (CP) The at- torney-general's department i studying alternative methods of handling traffic offences in a bid to reduce the routine-case load on Alberta courts. One alternative being exam- ined, Attorney-General Merv Leitch said yesterday, is a sys- tem that would allow a person who intends to plead guilty to a traffic offence to bypass the courts. One method that "has ap- Mr. Leitch said in an interview, is a procedure used in British Columbia where a traffic offence is handled through driver licensing regu- lations rather than through the courts. Under the B.C. method, a person charged with a traffic offence who intends to plead guilty does not appear in court or receive a fine. In- stead, the offence becomes part of his driving record and when a certain number of demerit points is reached, the penalty may be loss of the right to drive. 'We'd like to remove from the courts routine guilty pleas if we can find an acceptable Mr. Leitch said. Increasing the number of traffic court judges would not solve the problem. Another alternative being con- sidered is a fSe system under which a certain number of of- fences would result in a driv- er having to pay an additional fee to obtain his licence. Last week, Provincial Judge George Forbes said traffic courts have been reduced to almost a farce because of the excessive volume of people they handle. Judge Forbes said the traffic court judge is re- duced to the status of a "rub- ber stamp.
