By WARREN CARAGATA Herald Staff Writer A six-man coroner's jury recommended Friday that all temporary walkways at con- struction sites be securely fasted to help prevent indus- trial accidents. The jury was called to in- quire into the May l death of 59-year-old Frank Klassen, a Coaldale construction worker who died in St. Michael's Gen- eral Hospital six days after he fell from a plywood walk- way at the addition to the Professional building. Evidence presented to the inquest indicated that four- foot by eight-foot sheets of three quarter-inch plywood were used as walkways be- tween beams. The sheets, one overlapping the other, were not fastened to the joists and as Mr. Klas- sen stepped onto a walkway near the close of his shift, it slipped, throwing him to the concrete 10 feet below. Dr. Philip Cashmpre testi- fied that he examined Mr. Klassen after the fall and determined that he had a broken hip. but "as these in- juries go, it was very mild." He was operated on and placed in traction and there was no "worry about Dr. Cashmore said, "until about p.m. on the 7th of May." Mr. Klassen was placed in intensive care and died sever- al hours later. A pathologists report indi- cated that a blood clot in the hip broke away from the main clot and moved into the artery between the heart and the lungs, cutting off the oxy- gen supply to the blood. This cause of death, testi- fied Dr. Cashmpre, is a com- mon complication after anv surgery, or accident and added that with advancing age, the chances of embol- ism, or blockage of a blood vessel, may occur increase. A co-worker of Mr. Klas- sen's at the site, Helmut Fom- radas, told Coroner Dr. Nor- man B a s t e r that he had walked over the walkway about a minute before Mr. Klassen fell, and that work- ers at the site had been using the planking all day. Arthur Baldry, an accident prevention officer with the Work men's Compensation Board, said WCB regulations specify that temporary walk- ways have to be properly se- cured "and in this case nail- ing (the overlapping sheets together) would probably have been the answer." The overlap may have ap- peared to be adequate, "but in my opinion, if they were May ivas warmer., drier, sunnier and ivindier Lethbridge was warmer, drier, sunnier and windier last month than during the cor- responding month of 1972, Ted Wilson of Environment Can- ada, reports. Last month's mean temper- ature of 53.8 degrees com- pares with 52.6 degrees the previous year. There was 1.08 inches of precipitation com- pared with 1.7 inches the pre- vious year. The mean wind- speed of 12.9 miles an hour compares with 9-9 in May, 1972. The 323.4 hours of sun- shine outshines 257.4 hours of sunshine a year ago. The mean maximum tem- perature of 68.1 degrees was 4.5 degrees above normal. There were three consecutive days in the middle of the month when the mercury hit 85 degrees. The 323.4 hours of sunshine last month beat the 30-year average by 63 hours. The 1.08 inches of precipi- tation compares with the 30- year average of "2.01 inches. The lowest temperature of 23.7 degrees was recorded May 1. The record low of 11.4 degrees was recorded May 1, 1954. The highest temperature of S5 compares with a record high of 92 set in 1928 and the lowest high of 71 set in 1962.

The child is believed to have fallen down the stairs outside her parent's home, at 1227 Glacier Dr., prior to the death. "There's enough to make me interested in holding an Dr. Morgan said. A pathologist's report re- leased Thursday indicates the girl died as a result of inhala- tion of gastric juices. Legion's growth rapid nailed, he wouldn't have fall- en." He said that while unse- cured walkways are unsafe, they are used by various construction companies. The company is responsib- le for safety provisions, but individual workers should take it upon themselves to police safety regulations, Mr. Baldry said. The Royal Canadian Legion in Alberta is experiencing "unprecedented ac- cording to Ed Dick of Cal- gary, the president of the Legion's Alberta Command. Membership in the com- mand totals more than Mr. Dick said, and is expected to exceed this year. These figures do not include members of the Legion's auxiliaries. Mr. Dick is in Lethbridge to attend the 28th biennial convention of the command which continues through Wed- nesday. The Legion is opening its doors to younger men who have served in the armed forces and to members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police who have served two or more years of honorable service. In addition, he said, the Legion is recruiting sons and daughters of Legion members as associate mem- bers. Some of the matters on the agenda of the convention, being held at the Holiday Inn and at the Civic Center, are expediting of payment of medical allowances, pensions and dependents allowances, and proposed reorganization of the Legion within Alberta. The last Legion convention held in Lethbridge was in June, 1965. Super Special! SAMSON- DOMINION AUTOMATIC OVEN BROILERS Actually 4 appliances In one.
