Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Hospital workers strike The support staff at the Royal Alex- andra Hospital in Edmonton has gone on strike in support of wage demands. Gas stations cut operation hours WASHINGTON (AP) More and more gasoline service sta- tions in the United States are reducing on their hours of oper- ations as summer travel begins a national spot survey shows. The American Automobile As- sociation (AAA) reported Tues- day that its second weekly spot check of gasoline supplies shows a sharp drop in the per- centage of service stations with "normal" operations and a cor- responding increase in the num- ber cutting weekday and week- end operating hours. Sixty-four per cent of the 989 stations along major travel routes in 48 states reported nor- mal operations with adequate Hush Puppy search ends in vain AYR, Ont. (CP) A 15-day search for the second missing Hush Puppy ended in vain to- day. Charles Greb, owner of the 10-year-old basseHibund Velvet said he has left a picture of the dog in every farm house within a 20-mile radius of this Kitch- ener-area community. "We are convinced that she has either been killed and bur- ied or is stiU being held by someone who is nervous be- cause of all the publicity about the dog." His second basset hound, three-year-old Jasmine, was found alive last week in a nearby silo by two students. "We've decided there is no point in tramping the fields any more." The hounds with the droopy snoot and gloomy look have served in national advertising for the brand of shoes named after them and manufactured by the Greb interests.

Last week, the organization re- ported that 75 per cent of stations in 46 states were oper- ating normally. The number of stations clos- ing earlier than normal during the week rose to 32 per cent from 24 per cent, the AAA said, but some of that was due to "personnel problems" rather than gasoline shortages. SEEK CLARIFICATION The AAA undertook the weekly surveys, it said, to try to gauge the amount of gasoline available to the motorist in the wake of what it termed conflict- ing "scare stories" related to a reported energy crisis. This week it found about the same per stations limiting motor- ists at the pump to 10 or 15 gal- lons a stop. Some dealers along virtually every major turnpike and especially in Florida are al- locating gasoline, the AAA said. A lone exception along the turnpikes, the AAA said, is the Ohio Turnpike, which has gone to court against Texaco Inc., one of its suppliers, in an effort to avoid allocations. The survey showed distinct improvements in the SoutheaV gasoline situation over the week before, spotted New York, New Jersey and the western moun- tain states as the most favor- able for the motorist and pin- pointed California and Nevada as trouble areas. The survey covers both major oil companies' stations and in- dependents. Board grants teachers leave without pay EDMONTON (CP) Edmon- ton teachers elected to public office will be granted leaves of absence without pay so they can attend meetings during the day, the Edmonton school board decided at a recent meeting.

(CP) A Territorial councillor charged Tuesday that residents of isolated Northern settlements who rely on the annual sea lift for food and building materials are being "blackmailed" by shipping firms. Bryan Pearson, member for Eastern Arctic, said ships that bring in everything from long- Johns and strawberry jam to snowmobile parts and new school houses each summer are really "marine pirates" who gouge High Arctic communities with outrageous freight rates. And Mr. Pearson accused the Territorial government of "sit- ting idly by and watching the people of the North being black- mailed." The sea lift, under control of the territorial government for the first time last year, is con- ducted by ships sailing into Ar- ctic waters from Montreal un- der contract. Council was told by Chuck McCurdy, dirsctor of the de- partment of administration, that sea lift costs of pre- fabricated building material to Grise Fiord last year were 812 a ton. Groceries cost a ton to ship to the remote settlement on the southern tip of Ellesmere Island. He said federal Arctic pollu- tion regulations, specifying that only certain types of ships with ice-strengthened hulls can oper- ate in the ice-filled waters, are a factor in the high cost. "We're being blackmailed by marine Mr. Pearson exploded. Mr. Pearson said he could resupply all 27-Eastern Arctic communities in one week by air, and do it more cheaply than the summer sea lift. He said the answer is the Boeing 747 jumbo jet which car- ries 200 tous of freight. The Frobisber Bay business- man said the huge jets could land safely on airstrips built on the heavy sea ice in mid-winter. Such a freight operation could carry goods from Montreal to Frobisher Bay at a substantially less than present marine rates, Mr. Pearson said.
