Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta IS THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, 28, 1973 Gold bar cache" worth millions LAS CRUCES. N.M. (AP> A group of clients of Boston lawyer Lee Bailey say they have found a cache of gold bars worth millions of dollars in a cave on the White Sands missile range. Wayne Smith, a Bailey associ- ate. said the group of 35 to 401 persons wants to sell the gold they claim to have stumbled on, but first they want the govern- ment to determine whether it is stolen. I The announcement stirred anew the tales told by a New Mexico prospector, E. (Doc) Noss, who said that in 1937 he found a cave filled with gold bars stacked like cord wood. Noss said the cave had been blocked off by a dynamite charge that he sec off to enlarge a tunnel. The prospector was shot to death in 1949. after taking on j several different partners in various attempts to dig a path to the sealed Stories lived on about the Noss cave, located on his claim in Hembrillo Canyon below Vic- toria Peak, on the southern part of what now is the White Sands range. DEAN INVOLVED Smith said Bailey got in touch with government officials after the persons who claim to have found the gold reached him. He said a sample of the metal was analysed by the treasury de- partment and found to be 60 per cent gold. At the current price of gold, the 292 bars weighing 80 pounds each which Bailey's clients claim to have found would be worth about million. Snu'th said Bailey was re- ferred to the department of the army and is awaiting a re- sponse to a June 11 letter. Smith gave no location of the cave. There are any number of caves in the stark San Andres Mountains, which meander the distance of the 110-mile-long missile range in a north-south direction. The was touched on briefly Monday by John Dean during Dean's testimony before the Senate Watergate com- mittee in Washington. Dean said former Attorney- General John Mitchell discussed Bailey's case with the former White House of staff, H. R. Hal- deman, last March 22. Dean said Haldeman claimed he was "non-responsible" and the mat- ter was dropped. INSURANCE LIABILITY BONDS AUTO FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD. ESTABLISHED 1911 lower Floor 517 4th 5.

Exhibition grounds in Toronto. While at the C.N.E., the Western economic opportunities conference Lang remarks won't affect meet OTTAWA (CP) Prime Min- ister Trudeau has told the 'our Western premiers that a recent acid exchange between them- selves and Justice Minister Otto Lang will not affect the dis- cussions at next month's Test- em Economic OpportunMes Conference. In an apparent reference to Mr. Lang's reported statement that the premiers had "tunnel Mr. Trudeau said in a telegram to the premiers that it was inevitable that misuriaer- standings and difficulties would arise in planning the Calgary conference which starts July 23. "I hope we can agree to "con- sider these misunderstandings and difficulties behind he wrote. "None of us will want them to affect our deliberations, our search for agreement in Cal- gary." Mr. Trudeau also said he will send formal invitations to pre- miers of the Atlantic provinces, Quebec and Ontario to attend the western conference as ob- servers. The two northern territories also would be invited to send observers to the meeting. Mr. Trudeau said the confer- ence is "a unique opportunity for the Western provinces and the federal government to deal with basic issues of major sig- nificance to Western Canada." He cautioned however that because of time limitations, the governments would not be able to deal fully with all items on the agenda. "I am confident however that together we will make signifi- cant he added. New device aids plane searches EDMONTON (CP) A ply- wood and plexiglass device that is expected to Increase the ef- fectiveness of northern air searches for downed planes was unveiled Tuesday. The module, basically a flying telephone booth that fastens to the rear-loading ramp of Her- cules aircraft, was explained at a news conference by WO H. J. Howells, stationed at Canadian Forces Base Edmonton. WO Howslls said he got the idea at a party last Christmas eve. "At the party, I was defend- ing our search for Marten Hart- well against the arguments of one young lady who finally said she figures she could do a bet- ter job from a telephone booth." WO Howells went to work and produced his oversized tele- phone booth, equipped with front and side windows, piped-in heating and direct commu- nication to the cabin to guide the crew over any objectives for a second look. Gov't won't extend Bell suspension OTTAWA (CP) The cabinet will not extend the 90-day sus- pension of a Bell Canada rate increase, government sources say. But, they refuse to say what action the government will take by the time the suspension ends next Thursday. DeMontJgny Marchand, as- sistant deputy minister of com- munictions, said Tuesday: "We have reviewed the case and the review has been brought to the attention of the minister. What the government is going to do with the views that were put to them and when they are going to do it is up to the government." The Canadian transport com- mission approved in March a rate increase which would have brought Bell an additional million in revenue over the full year. It was the fourth increase granted in 3% years. The search for Mr. Hartwell, a bush pilot who was lone survi- vor of his mercy flight's crash last Nov. 8, touched off specula- tion about the effectiveness of the search, estimated to million. "We have no doubt that we were doing the best we could under the circumstances, using the Hercules aircraft because it was the only one with the range and performance to do the job that was available to said Col. W. M. Howser, commander of CFB Edmonton. NOT EFFECTIVE "But we did start to wonder how efficient our search was when the searchers themselves had to peer through fogged gog- gles while dangling over the loading ramp at wind chill to 70 below zero. "We now estimate there was only one chance in five that any downed aircraft would be spotted by the inexperienced volunteers we sometimes were forced to employ. We also think this inovation will triple those chances using the same person- nel in the future." "The searchers had to strap themselves to the ramp. They used to say it was like driving in winter with no windshield in a WO Howells said. "After I figured out how It was to be done, it ws about a month and a half getting the prototype built. It took another couple of weeks for refine- ments." The top rear section had to be cut down to clear the static line used by parachutists in the event a wreck is found. Side windows also were added for better visibility. At each, the Canadian Armed Forces now tentatively plans four of the modules, two for use in Edmonton and two for its other Hercules squadron at Trenton, Ont.
