Parent attempts to stop inquest into tot's death EDMONTON (CP) A full investigation into the death of a 30-month-old boy was stopped Friday when Provincial Coroner Dr. Max Cantor was served with a notice of a Supreme Court action. R. H. Davidson, counsel representing the mother of the child, Caryl Morris-Jones and Lars Johansen, the man with whom she had been living, served the notice on Dr. Cantor as the coroner entered the courtroom to start the inquest. Pincher poll PINCHER CREEK (Special) An advance poll will be held in the Matthew Halton High June 29 and July 1 for those persons who will be absent on the July 8 election day. Polling hours will be 9 a.m. to 9 p m. each day. The notice asks that the Supreme Court prohibit Dr. Cantor or any other coroner from continuing with the inquest and seeks to quash summonses issued to Miss Morris-Jones and Mr. Johansen. It said that the "sole purpose of the proposed inquest is to obtain from the applicants (Miss Morris- Jones and Mr. Johansen) evidence which may be used against them in a subsequent criminal trial, thereby depriving them of their right to remain silent." Dr. Cantor, who decided to proceed with the inquest, said it was the first time anyone had attempted to prohibit him holding an inquiry. "I can't see that I can be stopped from starting an inquest whenever I want to." he said. The action is scheduled to be heard June 26 in Alberta Supreme Court. After hearing two hours of testimony. Dr. Cantor sent the tour men and two women of the jury home advising them they would be contacted after a Supreme Court judge rules on the action. Dr. D. A Reid testified he was on duty May 25 when a man arrived at the Royal Alexandra Hospital carrying the lifeless body of the child. He was told the boy had been found dead in its crib. Dr. Ed Todd. a hospital pathologist, told the inquest he found multiple bruises on the child's heart and around one kidney and the spleen. He said there were several tears of the liver and described the pancreas as completely cut Dr Todd said "massive force" would have been required to cause the injuries and rejected a suggestion by Mr Davidson that the injuries could have resulted from a fall CRANBROOK (Special) "As long as the weather is with us, we won't have any flooding says Edith Van Maanon of Nelson, co-ordinator of the Nelson zone provincial emergency program. She says the only possible trouble spot is Golden. There are no other anticipated problems throughout the Kootenays. "It won't be until after June 10, when the thaw begins, that flooding can be ruled out for the town of Golden, If flooding occurs, and that possibility is strong, the town would have to be said Mrs. Van Maarion. The mayor and civic officials of the town have been alerted to the possibility and are prepared. In the Fernie area, the Elk River is running bank to bank. While some basements are flooded, residents are not disturbed. This is a condition they have lived with for many years At Grand Forks, the river is down two feet. Greenwood and Midway are out of danger Peachland miners top Sparwood test SPARWOOD (Special) The Brenda Mines team from Peachland, B.C., won the recent surface mine rescue competition at Harmer Ridge here. Brenda Mine sent teams from Kaiser Resources, Fording Coal Company, Phoenix Mines, of Grand Forks and Similkameen Mines of Princeton down to bitter defeat in the test. Each member of the winning team received a screwdriver set and an electric saw Brenda Mines superintendent Gordon Harris said' "I'm proud. I'm humble, but I'm their boss. I'm not on the team." The rescue problem involved a vehicle collision between a 200-ton truck and a front-end loader. The problem simulated an accident in which the truck ran into the front-end loader which was parked at the side of a haulage road while mechanics repaired the hydraulic system. The bucket of the loader had been blocked off the ground prior to the collision. One of the mechanics was pinned beneath the bucket and the rescue team had to free him. The truck driver was diabetic and was suffering from insulin shock, the cause of the accident. The truck driver was unconscious and had to be brought to the ground in an unconscious state Rescue teams were to administer first aid to both victims. The teams were allowed 35 minutes to solve the problem. They were judged on a point system They were marked on the speed and decisiveness with which the captain assessed and initiated the team's action and his leadership throughout the problem. Points were also awarded on the care of rescue equipment: use of bystanders: adequacy of instructions given to the ambulance driver, first aid men. manager and the hospital: safety measures maintained for team members: initial and immediate aid given to the victims and how they were transported to the ambulance- Mines Minister Leo Nimsick attended the competitions.

Committee members are chairman Alfred Egan, Ed Torsher and Clarence Weatherhead of the Bow Island Municipal Hospital and Nurses Residence board, and vice-chairman Nick Ancion, G J. Emery and Frank Romeike of the Medicine Hat Auxiliary Hospital board. They have been authorized by both boards to acquire detailed plans, call tenders and issue contracts for an addition and renovations to the Bow Island hospital. The addition is tentatively planned as a 20-bed nursing home and a four-bed children's ward with a child's isolation room The renovation will provide increased storage space and utilization of the nurses residence (the hospital and "nurses residence are two separate buildings that the addition will join) Administrator John Nicolet says the completed project will provide 20 active beds and nursing '-ome beds. It will provide office space for public and mental health officials and a board room Mr. Nicolet says the nursing home portion could be filled the day the addition is completed but "we want to gradually fill this place up At present there is no children's ward and young patients often find themselves in a hospital bed that is placed in the corridor It is expected that the final set of plans will be completed by architectural firm of Russell and Needham Ltd.. Medicine Hat. and tenders called within two months. Since the funding for the nursing home will come from the Medicine Hat Auxiliary Hospital board and the renovations funding from the Bow Island board, a joint committee was required. The two institutions will be integrated and will use the same kitchen. Mr. Torsher and Mr. Romeike are County of Forty Mile councillors and are keeping that council posted on developments. Mr. Weatherhead is a member of the Burdett village council.
