Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta ft TUB UTHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, 29, 1770 Y Nervous In Ontario CoininunUy Murders Remain Unsolved PALGRAVE, Out.

"No she rc- pealed when (lie visiting re- porter awl photographer tried to question her. The woman lives about a mile from the rural homes where Post Office Deficit Could Rise Sharply OTTAWA (CP) Relating postal strikes could boost the post office deficit to S130.000.000 this year and "there comes a time when you begin to ask yourself should you suspend op- erations." Postmaster-General Eric Kicrans said in a television interview Saturday. He said strikes at both (he Montreal and Toronto main post offices could so tie up the move- ment of mails across the coun- try that it would be futile lo try to keep the service going. Sir. Kicrans was interviewed for Sunday's CTV Network pro- gram. Question Period. He said the post office deficit, estimated between and for this year, could amount to S130.00fl.000 if the rotating strikes continue. Major postal service users have turned to other means of communication. There are only 400 customers who account for hall the mail tele- phone, mail-order and direct-! mail advertising companies, 1 and the like. Because of the r o t a t i n g strikes, the volume of mail j being carried has already j dropped to its 1966 level, when j the post office employed 4.100 fewer workers than it now does, he said. "There is no reason for any- body in the post office to fear layoffs because of mechaniza- tion or changes, or moderniza- tions in the post office. "But I will also say now, quite flatly, that there are rea- sons to fear layoffs when the ne- gotiations are over if the vol- ume continues at (pieces) a year instead of Mr. Kierans was asked: j "Does that imply then that people could lose their jobs if your volume does not come back up to its former He said: "It doesn't imply it, it states it." The postmaster-general said that last Thursday, virtually all mail traffic west of Toronto was tied up by sporadic strike ac- tion, "and you begin to ask what's the sense of keeping the service open. He added: "I don't think they would ever do this but if To- ronto and Montreal ever went out on the same day in tlu's ro- tating business, I don't think there would be any sense in keeping it open that particular day. "You'd simply say to them, if you don't want to work, let us know when you wrant to work and tile post office is open.'' Mr. Kierans said suspending mail service would not be a lockout." "It's not a lockout in the sense that you keep them out and then starve them into sub- mission." it ion r. igs or jTasm< present From the famous makers of wigs 1 a Brand New Wig for as little as f The Reid-Meredith Yes mads j in Canada (Coquette All ihese L styles J with J one wig I u Helen Ferguson, 37, was raped and shot to death last month. Another woman, with her hus- band behind her, didn't even open the door. She looked through the glass at identifica- tion presented by her visitors. "1 don't want to she called through the glass. "I won't talk." This woman lives almost across the road from the home where Dorccn Moorby, 3-1, of Gormlcy. Ont., was raped and shot lo death 13 days before the murder of Mrs. Ferguson. Both murders remain un- solved. Nearly 30 members of the Ontario Provincial Police are chasing down all leads in the two murders, committed, they believe, by the same man. The clues are few; the similari- ties are several. VICTIMS NURSES Both victims were nurses. Both were married to schoo! teachers. Both were alone dur- ing lire day. Both lived houses difficult to see from the road. Both homes stand alone and forlorn, now. Both husbands took the children and moved oul and haven't been back. Mail- boxes and nameplates have been removed to discourage cu- riosity seekers. The homes are about 25 miles apart in the area north and northwest of Toronto. Strangers are no longer wel- come in either district. Report- ers are viewed with suspicion. "We're all says El- eanor Crane, lives near the Moorby home. "I wouldn't talk- to you if Harold was Her husband, Harold, is home most of the lime now, which makes Mrs. Crane one of the more fortunate women in the district. CHILDREN PROTECTED The Crane cliildren attend school in nearby Stouffville. They used to walk the half-mile from the bus stop to their home, along a tree-lined country lane. Now, Mrs. Crane picks them up in the family car. "He could be in the bushes, you says Mrs. Crane. Are there firearms in the house? "We all have says Mr. Crane. "Most of us already had them for shooting wood- chucks, but we never kept them loaded before." In Stouffville, some people have put double locks on their doors. Almost everyone now has safety chains installed. In the Palgrave district, the feeling is, if anything, stronger. The murder there was the most recent of the too. Mary Patterson lives with her son and daughter-in-law, both of whom work. She is alone during the day. There are firearms in the house but Mrs. Patterson can't use them; she relies on an a-te handle. At many homes, a ring at the door brings no response except a flutter at the window curtains. Some answer, but are reluctant to talk to strangers. In the small general store, the woman behind the counter looks at the strangers' identification and exclaims: "No, no, no, I don't want to talk about it. I won't talk about it. Leave me alone." And she is left alone. With her fear. 11magine a Irom the makers of the world's iinest moda- 4 erylic fibre wigs.
