Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Rail talks deadlocked OTTAWA (CP) - Denying rumors of an imminent breakdown in talks, a labor department official said Friday that negotiations between the railways and non-operating rail unions will continue next week. . Union officials have been saying informally that unless some agreement is reached before the end of this week they expected the talks to break off and go to conciliation. While there has been no sign of any such progress neither party appears to have moved to leave the bargaining table. One union source suggested labor department mediators are de- termined to stall off a collapse as long as possible. The labor department spokesman said the key to the deadlock is sitll felt to be the tentative contract, signed last December but never ratified, between the railways and Division Four union negotiators representing 20,000 shopcraft workers. The proposed two-year contract would provide a 15-percent wage raise but was rejected by five of the eight shop-craft unions. It had originally been seen as a possible pattern for an agreement with the 56,-000-member non-op unions. DICAN EQUIPMENT LTD.

This week Mr. Rygus accused leaders of the 10,000-member Brotherhood of Railway Carmen of making "scurrilous accusations" against his own union as a "smokescreen to cover their failure to negotiate an adequate agreement." Mr. Rygus' role is also reported to have led to a feud with Labor Minister Bryce Mackasey who was obviously upset by the failure to obtain ratification. At present, there is no indication that talks will resume between the railways and the shopcraft unions before some development occurs in the non-op negotiations. The non-ops originally demanded increases of between 25 and 40 per cent in a one-year agreement as wall as equal representation on the Canadian National Railway pension board, sick-leave1 credits and an ironclad job security clause. Non-operating employees-including clerks, sleeping car porters, oilers and others-now average $3.20 an hour. Nothing much bothers Ken Maynard SAN FERNANDO, Calif. CA - Old-time cowboy movie star Ken Maynard was sitting on the couch in his tiny trailer when the earthquake hit. "Damn near knocked me on the floor," he recalls with a grin. "This trailer was rockin' and jumpin', and the cement brick wall was fallin' down outside. "Was I scared? Hell, no. I've been in earthquakes before-the Long Beach earthquake of 1933, and a couple of big ones in South America. Nothing much bothers Ken Maynard. The star of scores of early-day movie westerns, he now lives in a trailer court in the town of San Fernando, which was hard hit by the Feb. 9 earthquake. Maynard has lived alone since the death of his wife two years ago. Ken, at 75 and trimmed down from the 250 pounds he once weighed, sports a stylish beard. "Tell the truth, I don't care whether I work or not," he said. "I do a few things now and then -I was on the Merv Griffin Show with a bunch of oldtimers, and I did a part in a picture called Bigfoot, as a favor to the producer, Bob Slatzer." "But you know, I'm not looking for work. I've been performing for more than 50 years now. I've had my share. Let somebody else do it." Surgeon at faull LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles County has agreed to pay $110,000 to the family of a woman who died after six-inch surgical scissors were left in her body following abdominal surgery- A court approved the settlement Thursday between a county-owned hospital and the family of Margaret F. Craig. IMPRESSING THE GENERAL - Everything was spit and polish for the arrival of Brig.-Gen. J. B. Jones in Edmonton this week. The only thing missing was the precision in tho ranks of the 8th Field Engineer Regiment. The general probably understood however - the 8th is a militia regiment and still is learning the tricks of military technique. Saturday, March �, 1971 _ THE IETHBRIDGI HERlrtO - 15 New wildlife act by next session OTTAWA (CP) - Fisheries Minister Jack Davis said Friday that a national wildlife act, providing protection for endangered species, could come before Parliament next session. He told the seventh annual meeting of the Canadian Wildlife Federation that endangered wildlife species concern people in Canada and throughout the world. 1 An act to protect them would be comparatively easy to pass in the next session of Parliament. The act would be sponsored by the government's proposed department of the environment, which Mr. Davis will head. The wildlife federation in its national wilidlife week project last year named fi5 endangered Canadian species. , Mr. Davis said his new department must be committed to protecting the environment generally, and must have the power of veto over development which could harm the environment. He predicted that such power would result in a clash between "fast buck" interests and the long-term ecological point of view. One of his department's priorities, he said, is to obtain authority to buy land for natural reserves which could help preserve endangered species. The government already could purchase such land, but it had no legal right, to protect it from abuse. It'syoun move. Show us. Show yourself.
