Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THJE lETHBPJDGE HERALD Thursday, June 7, 1973 German treaty signed BONN (API Gus- tav Heinemann signed Bonn's normalization treaty with East Germany today, competing the West German ratification. The treaty, passed by the Bonn parliament, will take ef- fect following ratification by East Germany and an ex- change of notes between the two Gennanys. The treaty will regulate relations with East Germany and clear the way for dual German membership in the United Nations. But doubt remained about a pending legal challenge to the treaty by the opposition con- trolled Bavarian state govern- ment in West Germany. West Germany's con- stitutional court cleared the way Tuesday for Heinemann's signature by rejecting a Bava- rian application for a tem- porary staying order. But the court still has to rule whether the treaty contradicts a I constitutional clause requir- ing the government to preserve the unity of the German na- tion and seek reunification of the two German states. The case begins July 31. Chancellor Willy Brandt's constitutional experts deny that the treaty blocks eventual Ger- man reunification. Mr. Sohl said the German ne- gotiators will push for liberal trade policies in both tariff and non-tariff areas. J GARDEN SHOP SPECIALS THURSDAY, FRIDAY, SATURDAY, JUNE 7-8-9.

BABY HAS FOUR LEGS AND FOUR ARMS MIAMI, Fla. (AP) Baby Joe was born with four arms and four legs, a condition so rare that just 23 cases have been documented since 1680. But today, at 10 months of age, Joe, with his fluffy blonde hair and bright brown eyes, is nearly normal, doc- tors say. The baby, given the name Joe to protect his identity, was a little more than 21 hours old when doctors at Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital started operating to change the tiny patient. During a operation the extra arms and legs were amputated. Meanwhile, Joe's parents waited at a hospital several miles away. The two, alias Joan and Mike, were just 21. Joan had been well through her pregnancy and wanted to be awake for the baby's birth. "I had a local anesthetic, I saw him come out when he was born, but he was face Joan said. "Then I saw the expression on the nurses' faces. DOCTOR REASSURING The nurses wrapped the baby in a blanket while the doctor explained that "there were some problems but he felt they could be put Joan said. Joe was taken by helicopter from the hospital where he was born to Jackson. A trio of doctors was already standing by. Dr. Marc Rowe, chief of the University of Miami School of Medicine's division of pediat- ric surgery and one of the new doctors in the world with experience in operating for dipygus, headed the team. Joe's condition, dipygus, is a quirk of twinning that doctors say rarely happens. Joe, who has been home at the family's small farm sev- eral months now, is scheduled for another operation. Doctors say it may be the last one needed. Across -the-board pay hike urged OTTAWA (CP) An across the-board wage increase of 41 cents-an-hour retroactive to Jan. 1 has been proposed in the unanimous report of a con dilation board set up to resolve a contract dispute involving grain handlers in Thunder Bay Ont. The report, released Wednes- day by the federal labor depart- ment, deals with negotiations between employees repre- sented by the Brotherhood of Railway, Airline and Steamship Clerks and six grain elevator companies. Chairman of the board was Dr. Arjun Aggarwal of Thunder Bay, while the companies were represented by Ken Barrass ol Calgary and the union by A. S. Tirrell of Thornhill, Ont. The report suggests another 40 cents-an-hour wage increase effective Jan. 1, 1974, and dis- cussion of a company request for a seven-day continuous eration "in an atmosphere re- moved from the duress of the bargaining table." SHARE COSTS The board also recommended meal breaks on overtime days similar to those during a Mon- day to Friday work-week and a cost-sharing agreement between the company and empolyees that would provide for a sick- ness and accident benefit plan of a week for a maximum 15 weeks. The report suggests that in 1973, employees with 14 years or more seniority should re- ceive four weeks vacation and that next year, those with 13 years seniority should get four weeks. Another proposal would give five weeks vacation to employ- ees who have 21 years seniority, with time requirement for the five-week period reduced to 20 years in 1974. The parties agreed to several proposals during the board hearings. Aong suggestions accepted were a two-year contract, an additional statutory holiday and three days notice of shift changes except in "extraor- dinary situations." The companies involved in the dispute are Manitoba Pool Elevators, National Grain (1968) Limited, Parnsh and Heimbecker Ltd., Richardson Terminals Limited, Saskatche- wan Wheat Pool and United Grain Growers Limited. Crawford cool on Ottawa's drug plan EDMONTON (CP) A pro- posal by federal health minis- ter Marc Lalonde that regula- tions be changed to allow di- rect advertising of prescription drugs and prices does not sound like a significant way to reduce drug costs, Neil Craw- ford, Alberta health and social development minister, said Wednesday. "Any attempt they make to ntroduce new thinking regard- ng drug costs would be wel- come, but this doesn't seem to >e one of he said. But le added Alberta is prepared to study the suggestion. Magazine back on stands CALGARY (CP) The dispute over seizure of Play- girl magazine by customs offi- cials was resolved Wednesday Ottawa sent word the magazine was to be allowed on local newsstands. The federal government de- cision followed on the heels of irate criticism from the local magazine distributor and the Library Association of Alberta. A letter sent Wednesday to Robert Standbury, minister of national revenue, said the cus- toms branch's handling of al- legedly obscene publications was "an unwarranted harass- ment of a free press." Support for the distributors follows Tuesday's seizure by local cutoms officers of copies of Playgirl magazine pending a federal ruling on whether the latest issue is "immoral and indecent." Playgirl, the female answer to Playboy magazine, features a nude male centrefold and ar- ticles catering to women's tastes. "The latest seizure would be ludicrous if it were not indica- tive of a potentially great dan- the letter says. DISCOVERED TEST The pregnancy test was de- vised by Emil Aberhalden, a Swiss physiologist and bioche- mist. FATHER'S DAY SALE THURSDAY, FRIDAY, SATURDAY, JUNE. 7-8-9.
