Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta _____Thutjday, 8, 1972 THE U1HBRIDGE HERAID 2! Wild man of the ivoods Remote Indian village in far north fears return of Nahkah TROUT LAKE, N.W.T. (CP) He's called Nahkah, Ihe wild man of the woods, and he has injected terror into the hearts of the 51 residents of this re- mote Indian village. Nahkah is the Slavey Indian term for a bush man who sneaks and spies from behind cover. The Indians say he is real and fear that one day he may emerge from the forest and snatch one of their chil- dren. KECENT SIGHTING The most recent sighting of the phantom was last week in the evening light of the mid- night sun. Rosa Deneron, 1G, and her young brother stumb- led into a face-lo-face meeting with the man white they were collecting firewood. "He was laid down on his face and we didn't see him at first, but he jumped up and we saw she said in interview. "He was a big man with no beard. He shaves I guess. And he was coming towards us, so we just ran away. He had a funny little dog with him." There have been other sight- ings, from a distance, and the Indians say the man is white, has long blonde hair, dresses in military type clothing and carries a rifle. There has been evidence of the man's presence for five years, say the villagers dogs barking frantically at night, un expected footprints in the snow, glimpses of a pale face through log cabin windows and gunshots echoing thrrough the forest. However, it's been only re cently that more tangible evi dence has produced outrigh alarm. Tile RCMP have been asked to investigate during their next patrol of the area later this month. This year fish nets have been robbed of their catches and dried moose and caribou meal has been snatched from the village's meat racks. Three weeks ago. Kotchea. 34, a cabin across a creek from the main settlement was looted. What mystifies the Indians is where the Nahkah goes in winter. His traces are found around the village only in spring, summer and fall, although his were spotted last year after the first snow, about 550 miles northwest of Edmonton, is by busli plane. The nearest habitation is more than 100 miles in any direction, in a land covered with inuskeg. Temperatures go as low as zero here in winter and even now heavy ice remains on tront lake. Chief Joseph Jumbo, 77. rejects suggestions that Nahkah is a figment of the imagination. He had an experience with the man some time was setting my nets in the mouth of the creek when this man began to at me from the bushes along the bank. "I told him I was chief here and if he would come out in the open, we would be happy to give him anytliing he might need food, clothing or moc- leave him alone if that was casins. But he would not come what he wanted, just so long as out at all and I began to gel we knew who he and what scared." he was doing. Mr. Kolchea says he wishes i "Now we are worried for our the man would come forward and talk to the villagers. kids he might do something to them, lie might grab a child "We'd he perfectly happy to I or a young girl." Foreign policy rapped OTTAWA (CP) Govern- ment MPs, including some Lib- erals who have voiced doubts, are being asked to huslle the Trudcau government's foreign takeovers bill through quick consideration into law. But the plan to speed legisla- tive work on the measure may yet run into snags, if only be- cause New Democrat opponents are eager to make the most of apparent divisions within Lib- eral ranks and to press their op- position to the bill as an inade- quate answer to U.S- domina- tion of the economy. Bill C-201, which would au- thorize Industry Minister Jean- Luc Pepin to examine future foreign takeovers of Canadian companies and approve only those rated a national benefit, passed its first parliament ary test easily Tuesday oight. By a vote of 144 to 29-Liber- als and Conservatives outvoting New Democrats and Social Cre- Commons gave the bill formal second reading, thereby sending the legislation to the Commons finance com- mittee for detailed study. Swimming pool check is urged EDMONTON (CP) A spokesman for the provincial environment department said today municipal officials are being asked to check swimming pool chlorinators to ensure no recurrence of a chlorine leak at Coronation, Alia., which sent SO persons to hospital. The chlorinator is a type commonly used in most large pools in the province, and ap- parently had not been serviced in five years, he said. The spokesman said the leak last weekend appeared to have been caused when the chlorina- tor became plugged and gas escaped through a vent on the machine. The gas drifted over the pool. Most of the 50 were treated and released from hospital. Three, including two staff who shut off the leaking gas, were admitted to hospital. They also were later released. WOflDY WAIT ST. ALBANS, England (CP) Hertfordshire police force ap- peared to make a friendly ges- ture when a game of Scrabble was put in the waiting room of we of the local branches. "It should help clients to pass the time of a sergeant com- mented, "Each game lasts for over an hour." THIS IS THE MAIN REASON OUR COMPETITION GIVES YOU TO BUY THEIR STEEL BELTED TIRE. At a tire and up, Uniroyal thinks you should have more Uniroyal wasn't the first to introduce steel- belted tires in Canada. Or even the second. We held off because something was both- ering us. Especially our engineers. And that was, "how do you a steel- belted tire that'll do everything it should, with- out giving a harsh, stiff The answer, months and months later, is the Uniroyal Intersteel. And it was worth wait- ing for. Because it's considerably different than everybody else's steel-belted tire, and as aresult. we believe considerably better. Our construction vs.theirs. In one respect, all steel-belted tires are the same. They all have steel belts (in mesh form) running around the circumference of the tire. Among other things, these steel belts pro- vide superb "hazard protection'.' That is, they make it very difficult for nails, broken bottles and general highway debris to penetrate through the steel and puncture the tire. And that's obviously, all to the good. What isn't so good or obvious, is that steel, being the stiff material it is, can cause a tire to ride somewhat harshly and noisily (especially at speeds under 45 m.p.h.) Even more so, we believe, when the steel belts are applied directly against the tread. So we didn't build the Uniroyal Intersteel like anybody else's tire. The cutaway section of our tire will show what makes us different. We "sandwiched" our steel belts between two layers of polyester. So steel isn t jammed right up against the tread. It's cushioned from the tread by a polyes- ter layer. And from the carcass of the tire by a second polyester layer. Tread. Polyester. Steel. Polyester. Instead of just tread, steel, polyester, like everybody else. You don't have to be an engineer to see that you're bound to get a more comfortable ride with a tire built like the Intersteel. It's like putting a cushion on a hard chair before you sit on it. You get the benefit of the chairs support plus the comfort of the cushion. The Uniroyal Intersteel. The reason you've never seen a tire like it before is because there wasn't one. And in the long run, that's a very important plus. Simply because, it's something else you don't have to worry about As there are even more reasons lor investing in Intersteels. Performance. The next plus is increased performance. Belts on a tire help prevent a tire from distorting when it's moving. In short, they help keep more rubber on the road and allow the tread to fully perform the way it was designed to. Steel belts do a better job of this than any other material. And in our opinion, Intersteel does the best job of all, thanks to the way it's built. Our polyester layers top and bottom bond our steel belts in place with exceptional firm- ness. Which in turn, helps to hold down the tread even more.The result: Greater steering control. Greater skid control. Better traction. Mileage. And last but not least, all of this results in increased mileage. Because the less a tire squirms when it's moving {and our steel belts plus the precise con- struction of our polyester plies see to the cooler it runs. And the cooler it runs the longer its chances of lasting longer. Less squirm also means less rubber is likely to scrub off on the road. Which again increases mileage. We setoutto give you more reasonsfor buy- ing our steel-belted ti re thananybodyelse.And we thinK we've done it. But what's really important, is that we couldn't have, if some stubborn engineers hadn't set out to build a tetter tire than any- body else. And done it.
