Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta WMtntiday, 11, 1973 THE IITHMIDOI HHAIO IT New type of used car lot SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) Two California men have de- veloped a new kind of used car lot. Frank and Val's parking lot here sells cars. But the two proprietors neither own the ve- hicles nor actuality sell the cars themselves. The two men started their U- Sell Co. to tide them over dur- ing the slack periods in the aaropsace industry. Frank Zu- raski is a precision machinist and Woldzimierz Val Szpikow- ski is a cryogenics engineer. Persons wishing to sell a-car rent a space on the lot for a week. Frank and Val keep the lot and cars clean and show cars to potential buyers. When a customer appears serious, the proprietors call the owner down to the lot to close the deal. Auto industry spokesmen say that about half the used cars sold in California change hands between private parties in- stead of by dealers. Frank and Val say their serv- ice eliminates the need for sell- ers to sit around home waiting for a potential buyers to call. They say many just" don't want their privacy at home dis- turbed by potential car buyers. Both men work the lot in tneir off hours and report U- Sell is making a profit Dean granted immunity Former White House counsel John W. Dean HI, accompanied by his wife, leaves U.S. District Court in Washington. Earlier U.S. Diltrict Judge John J. Sirica granted Dean his immunity, meaning that any testimony he gives before the Senate Watergate Committee cannot bs used to develop a case against him. No laughing matter Tropical diseases pose threat OTTAWA (CP) A 76-year- old Ontario physician received some strange stares in the Commons Tuesday when he voiced concern about tropical Export tax on energy proposed CAMROSE (CP) The fed- eral government should create a national energy marketing board and Canadian energy re- sources should be sold on a sheltered cost basis, Alberta New Democratic party leader Grant Notley says. Mr. -Notley was adding his support to suggestions made by federal NDP critic Max Salts- man during a provincial NDP council meeting here. A national energy marketing board would be given the au- thority to impose an export tax on energy leaving the coun- try, with profits going to the producing province, Mr. Notley said. Protection of the Canadian energy market is vital and sales to U.S. buyers secondary in sales considerations, he said. diseases running, rampant in the chilly climes of Canada. But it's no laughing matter, P. B. Rynard P.C. Simcoe North) said later in an inter- view outside the House. The new life styles of the jet age were bringing exotic dis- eases into the country every day. And, there was a danger that diseases previously un- known here could settle in and become established residents. Toronto General Hospital treats 500 cases of various tro- pical diseases a month, said Dr. Rvnard. Yet, thsre were only 200 doctors in Canada trained in tropical medicine. He asked Health Minister Marc Lalonde to provide aid for medical training in diagnosing and treating tropical illness. Mr. Lalonde said his depart- ment is investigating ways of improving the situation, but it is difficult to do medical checks on everyone entering the coun- try. The let age was responsible for the importation of the dis- eases. Dr. Rynard said outside the House the most common tro- pical illnesses found here are salmonella, dysentry, amebiasis and other parasitical diseases. All lodge in the bowels, can re- cur often and are easily spread. The way we live, dress and eat these days gives these dis- eases good opportunity to be- come established here, he said. "More and more we ape the tropical climate by the way we heat our houses, eat out at res- taurants and dress in light clothing." The warmth of houses 24 hours a day created good breed- ing grounds for germs from hot climates. So did our decreasing exposure to cold and our grow- ing food-handling industry. "In the old days, when the fires went out in the houses, things froze. And there weren't many people bringing back germs from other countries." Besides more trained medical teams, he said, checks are needed on persons coming from areas where such diseases are common. "We were the first nation in the Commonwealth to have im- migration laws and we have the worst. We have to grow up ard examine these people for their own gccd.'' Dr. Rynard said an estimated from tropical countries come to Canada year. Alberta union bid opposed OSHAWA, Ont. (CP) The Canadian Union of Public Em- ployees (CUPE) is opposed to an application by the Alberta Civil Service Association for di- rect affiliation with the Cana- dian Labor Congress CUPE national representative Doug Lindsay said Tuesday. CUPE is prepared to with- draw from the CLC if direct af- filiation of the Alberta group is approved, be told the Oshawa and District Labor Council. The council agreed to send a letter to the CLC urging it to reject the Alberta application. CANADA'S FIRST EVER The Sackbut it definitely Canada's first completely home-grown musical instrument, end somewhat baffling. To learn all about it, "tune in" Mathew Harfs article this Saturday IN YOUR LETHBRIDGE HERALD WEEKEND MAGAZINE Parliamentary notebook MPs spoke in both languages OTTAWA (CP) Of the 42 MPs that took part in the five- day Commons debate on gov- ernment bilingualism policy, only 14 spoke in both French and English. Twenty members made speeches exclusively -in Eng- lish; eight exclusively in French. Six Social Credit MPs took part in the debate and all but one confined his remarks to the predominate language in Quebec where the party elected its full Commons complement of 15. Eudore Allard the lone Social Crediter to make a stab at -English, did so in a brief introduction to his speech to emphasize that "the equal status of the two languages must be established without a shade of doubt." Then, in French, he lam- basted the government for at- tempting to force a second lan- guage on people who don't want it and urged it to set up parallel civil services, one for French and another for English Cana- dians. "It could be the last time I will speak on this subject." As an independent MP, Roch LaSalle (Joliette) complains regularly about the difficulty he faces attempting to squeeze into the parliamentary lineup for de- bates. House leaders from the four estabu'shed parties get together routinely and work out the Commons timetable without consulting him. This week, during debate on government bilingualism policy.' Mr. LaSalle again voiced his frustration, saying it was "somewhat embarrassing" that speaking arrangements had been worked cut leaving no place for him "I have no delusions of gran- said Mr. LaSalle, who broke with the Conservatives in 1971 and who, outside Commons Speaker Lucien Lamoureux, is the only independent MP. "But the chair will, I hope, take into consideration my wish to speak before the end of the debate." The chair, and everyone else, agreed, and he did. The bilingualism debate sprinkled with dispiriting mo- ments for Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield, who vouched strong support for government efforts to increase bilingualism in the public service. John Diefenbaker (PC- Prince the man Mr. Stanfield deposed as party leader in 1987, called out the full magnificence of his parlia- mentary style to undercut, in a blistering speech, his leader's position and finally led a tebel group of 16 Conservaiives that voted against the bilingualism resolution. But there were also moments of solace for the Conservative leader. At one point during his speech, Mr. Diefenbaker com- plimented Mr. Stanfield on his ability to speak has a "capacity of intonation which I at another point the 77-year-old former prime minister threw in this line: There are lighter sides to any cabinet portfolio, as Health Minister Marc Lalonde aptly pointed out this week. In a speech to the Ontario Pharmacists' Association on the often technical matter of patent medicines, he told this story about a bullied mummy's dar- ling of a boy whose self-con- fidence had been shattered. "This self-confidence was re- stored dramatically merely by the use of a common patent medicine which his mother had seen fit to administer to him, and I'm referring to gin Mr. Lalonde said. "As you know, gin pills have i a colorful effect on the turning it bright blue, so that at recess time he became the centre of awe-struck and un- stinting admiration. "I am happy to say that to-! day he is the president of a gi- j gantie pharmaceutical oorpo-! ration." Buy now and drink later motto of wine investors NEW YORK (API Buy row. drink the' motto of a growing number of Americans who arc investing n wine as a hedge against in- flation. Keith Gould of Los Angeles paid about per bottle two years ago when he bought a case of 1966 Chateau d'- sweet, white des- sert wine. He spotted the same wine recently in a neighborhood liquor store for a bottle. Terry Robards of New York spent six years ago a case of 1981 Chateau Talbot, a red Bordeaux. To- day, Chateau Talbot is selling for over a per cent increase. Gould and Robards are lucky. They started buying before the price of imported started rising, boosted by increased demand around the world and the devaluation of the U.S. dollar. i An increasing number of Americans have discovered wine in recent years. The Cal- ifornia Institute esti- mated that, from 1960 to 1972, total U.S. wine consumption increased from about 163 mil- lion gallons a year to 267 mil- lion gallons a year. Gould, 39, became inter- es.ed in wine several years ago. He starred tasting, drink- ing and buying. Now he has about 250 bottles of imported French wine in his air-condi- tioned, shaded den. "I have Bordeaux, Bur- gundies, a little he said. "I can't afford to buy really good wine today. The price is out of sight." Gould said the wine he bought before moving to Cali- fornia has "doubled or almost tripled. I save it for big occa- sions." just opened the best tasting, biggest saving soft drink shoppe acase.
