Saturday, March 1, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 37 Alberta Fired manager files suit CALGARY (CP) The former manager of the Calgary Convention Centre who was fired Jan. 30 has filed suit against the City of Calgary for in lost in- come and damages. Doug Goadby, in a state- ment of claim filed in Alberta Supreme Court Friday, claims for loss of salary during the final year of his three year contract, a further for loss of professional reputation, 000 for loss of future employment, for loss of future pension benefits, and for loss of holiday benefits. The statement alleges that Goadby was wrongfully and unfairly criticized by agents and employees of the city in meetings of the convention centre authority and in public discussion of his firing. School trustees accused EDMONTON (CP) Reg Dasken, president of the member Alberta Federation of Labor, Friday charged trustees of the Calgary public school board with irresponsi- ble actions in their decision to close Calgary's public schools. Students have been notified classes will not resume Mon- day and schools will remain closed until the strike of caretakers, members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, is resolved. Mr. Basken said "the main responsibility of the school .board is to settle this dispute by working with the mediator." "Using school children as pawns to avoid this respon- sibility and to force com- pulsory arbitration is to total- ly misunderstand the prin- ciples of collective bargaining." Regulations too strict BEAVERLODGE (CP) Municipal officials of the Peace River area of northwestern Alberta want the courts to have more leeway in decisions concern- ing conflict of interest cases at the municipal government level. At the annual meeting of mayors, reeves and municipalities of the- Peace River area, officials said pre- sent regulations are too strict. Bill Isbester, deputy municipal affairs minister, told the meeting that legisla- tion on easing conflict of interest regulations have been proposed but have not been acted on because of the March 26 provincial election. EARLY PHOTOGRAPH A daguerreotype, an early kind of photograph, used a sheet of copper instead of glass or film, coated with a special mixture of chemicals. The inventor was a Frenchman, Louis Daguerre. Breakout attempt hinted during prison protest Names roll in Conservative MP John Reynolds (Burnaby-Richmond-Delta) rolls up a series of petitions received in his Ottawa office calling for reinforcement of capital punish- ment for convicted killers of police officers and prison guards. He says more than signatures have been collected for the petition which is to be presented to the federal cabinet. EDMONTON (CP) The Civil Service Association of Alberta (CSA) says a 24-hour disturbance at the Fort Saskatchewan Correctional Institute earlier this week probably was staged to cover up a breakout attempt. The association, in a news release, said the incident started at 11 p.m. Monday and at p.m. Tuesday. Bars in a cell in A block, the scene of the disturbance, were found sawn through by a guard. The sit-in by 90 prisoners at the jail 20 miles northeast of Ed- monton, ended after the demonstrators voiced com- plaints about "appalling" con- ditions to a reporter. The prisoners complained about the food, cockroaches and mice in their cells, un- sanitary toilets, broken beds and furniture. Two orphaned by violence awarded WINNIPEG (CP) The Criminal Injuries Compensa- tion Board has awarded 950 to two children orphaned in a murder and suicide in- cident. In a statement released yesterday Attorney General Howard Pawley said the award includes per month for the children's foster mother and additional payments for each child until their education is completed. Cleaning the prisoner's area is not the responsibility of the staff but that of the prisoners themselves, the association said in its release. "The food is good, no meats or vegetables are tainted or bad" and no com- plaints were received from other prisoners about the food's condition or preparation. "Many of the jail staff buy their meals there and eat just the same food as do the prisoners." The association said it regrets that a "new and inex- perienced warden was placed" at the institution. "There are experienced people in the Alberta correc- tional service with the ability to handle the which is not the place for on the job training for inexperienced wardens. Saying it is concerned about the many recent changes at the warden level recently, the CSA added that the handling of the incident was inept and could cause the recently ap- pointed warden, Justin Ander- son, to lose the confidence of the staff. "He and other ad- ministrators should be aware that the operation of an in- stitution like Fort Saskatchewan depends upon a team, each member of which has a position to play. 'A jail is no place for just a few star performers."

Bill Broad, association president, said in a Feb. 25 letter to Health Minister Neil Crawford the centre is un- suitable for patients because of a lack of medical staff, dis- tribution of medicine by un- skilled people and lack of sup- port staff. Mr. McCullough, 58, who has managed the centre for 27 years, said nursing care is not necessary because most of the 107 male residents, ranging between 42 and 79 years, can take care of themselves. He said many are former long-term mental hospital patients who, when dis- charged, had no home to go to or who could not quite manage on their own. The six staff members are familiar with distributing medicine. "Many of the men take their own medication but some may forget to take their pills, so we give it to them in the morning and at night when they come to the central dining hall for meals." Staff members are not diagnosing or giving medications on their own judgment. Medicine is prescribed through one of the community psychiatric nurses "who will come out whenever we call her and the local REHABILITATION HANDICAPPED WORKSHOP 1261 2nd Avenue N., Lethbridge Show ribbons and rossettes Monographed picture buttons Wedding car (lowers Wedding presents cushions and trays Personal name tags New letters typed and collated health unit nurse visits every second week. "I don't really see what a permanent .nurse would do here or even a doctor calling once a week." Mr. Broad said sick men re- quire a 2Vz-hour trip in good weather to get to hospital. "We can be there in 35 to 40 minutes if we have Mr. McCullough said, adding it is 49.1 miles to Edmonton's University Hospital. He said the ambulance at nearby Alberta Beach has been called only about six times in 27 years and by the time it gets to the centre, "we could already have been halfway in" to the hospital. The men, many on the old age pension, pay day for room and board if they can and are free to come and go as they please. "This is not a jail... we en- courage them to keep mobile." The centre has 13 acres of lawn and 25 cottages, each with its own heating and water system, a group living room. Each man has his own bedroom. Mr. Broad said the centre "smacks of a workhouse in the old Dickensian tradition." Mr. McCullough said some men do small jobs for area farmers. "They're socializing and any extra money they make is theirs." Some care for summer cot- tages at the lake, others collect bottles.
