Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 - THI IETHBRID0I HERALD - Tuesday, March 1, 1971 Sykes loses case .. CALGARY (CP) - Mayor Rod Sykes has lost an appeal against a court ruling that he pay $10,000 to city lawyer Robert Fraser for defamation. The decision of Mr. Justice S. S. Lieberman, brought down last November, was supported Monday by the appellate division of Alberta Supreme Court. The appeal court also ruled tfhe $10,000 damages were "quite moderate" and rejected a bid they be reduced. The suit was brought after comments in November, 1969, by the mayor during a dispute involving the city and Carma Developers Ltd., which was building a shopping centre in the northwest part of the city. STATUS DAMAGED Mr. Fraser, who represents developers and other corporate bodies in dealings with the city, said his professional status was dam ged by the remarks. The 24 - page judgment was produced by Mr. Justices Carlton Clement, S. Bruce Smith and E. W. S. Kane. They said the trial judge had "ample evidence" on which to find there was no truth to the mayor's assertions. The claim the mayor's com ments were justified and under qualified privilege was dismissed because the remarks were made at a regular weekly news conference and in a special news release. Detergent sale ban imposed HUNTINGTON, N.Y. (AP) - The woman took each piece of her wash out of the machine, examined it meticulously, then folded it into a neat pile. She looked up and gave her verdict: "It came out beatiful, it came out very nice and I'm sure happy," said Cecelia Azzari, who was not taping a commercial. For the first time in 15 years, she had used soap instead of a detergent to do her laundry. The sale of detergents became a crime Monday in Suffolk County, punishable by up to $230 in fines and 15 days in jail. The county is a New York City suburb on Long Island. County officials instituted the first U.S. ban on the sale of detergents-but not their use-because of fears of foamy and bad-tasting water. There are few sewers in Suffolk and officials estimated that 90 per cent of ground water pollution has been caused by chemicals contained in detergents. AIMED AT CHEMICALS Unlike limits imposed in Canada, Detroit and Chicago on phospate content, the ban is aimed ait other chemicals, which soak into the ground and find their way back into the area's drinking water. The ban does not affect bleaches, blueing agents, whit-eners, washing sodas, softeners, ammonia and automatic dishwashing products. Because most residents live in areas without sewers, they expressed support for the ban. Public incpiiry plans sitting CALGARY (CP) - A public inquiry under Mr. Justice W. G. Morrow will reopen for a one-day sitting March 17 into civic management. Testimony will be restricted to R. H. Wray, manager of the Calgary Transit system, who was unable to testify last fall because of ill health. The inquiry sat through four separate sessions last fall and heard 21 days of testimony, much of it about the operations and security arrangements of the transit system. Justice Monrow. of the Northwest Territories Court was appointed by the province to conduct the inquiry after Mayor Rod Sykes requested the commission to dispell rumors of civic mismanagement. Auto earner on test tr ip HALIFAX (CP) - The Japanese auto carrier Zama Maru arrived here today to unioad 500 Datsun cars as a test to see whether the port can handle this cargo. If the parent company, Nissan Automobile Co., is satisfied, this port might receive regular shipments of more than 1,200 cars a month. Halifax is competing with S'aint John, N.B. for the contract. This winter may set snowfall record TORONTO (CP) - If it feels like winter has been going on forever, and that you have done nothing but shovel snow from your driveway in temperatures colder than usual, it's not your imagination. Climatologists and meteorological experts say the trend has been toward colder winters since the mid 1950s. "But not successively," says Ted Wiacek, officer - in-charge of the Malton bureau of the meteorological branch, department of transport. "We can get two or three years of cooler temperatures, then a warmer 'one. But the trend over the past 15 years is to more snow and fractionally lower temperatures. M or ley Thomas, superintendent of climatology operations at meteorological branch, says this winter should set some kind of snowfall record across the country. "Vancouver has had more snow than at any time before the 1900s," he said. "London, Ont., a snow - belt city, is 15 inches above its normal as of the end of January. "The Montreal r Ottawa areas are heading for record snowfalls," he said. Toronto's snowfall, too, is 40 per cent above normal this year. There h-s been a total of 52 inches against the usual average of 38 inches. Although the experts agree on Uie over - all effect their opinions differ widely when it comes to causes. COULD BE DUST Some blame atmospheric pollution as a result of over-burning of such fuels as oil, gas and coal, which tends to produce an atmospheric "dust" which reduces solar heat. Others insist it is simply a natural cycle. High wind conditions, the result of temperature contrasts, and a possible shift southwards of the polar jet streams have helped turn even light snowfalls into nightmares. "When you have, say, a 40-below reading in Saskatoon and a 50 above in Kansas you have an explosive situation," said Mr. Thomas. The explosion occurs when cold air masses, sweeping south, lunge into the warm front where there is plenty of moisture. The interaction generates strong winds and the release of thermal energy, Prices cut in Russia MOSCOW (AP) - The Soviet government cut the prices of some consumer goods as much as 50 per cent today, Pravda announced. The Communist party newspaper .said prices were cut on television sets, washing machines, motorcycles, plastic goods, electric shavers and ballpoint pens. ,The cuts ranged from 19 per cent on current models of television sets and motorcycles to 50 per cent on ballpoint pens. Pravda indicated further im- provement would take place in the consumer sector. The paper called for "radical changes" in the quality and appearance of footwear and clothes. BUSY YEAR EDMONTON (CP) - Alberta's veterinary inspection service handled 1.2 million animals in 1969 with a market value of about $120 million.
