Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LE1HIR1DGB HERALD Tueiday, March 6, 1973 A light-hearted Hinmnn 'budget? Purple free travel grants By GREG McINTYHE Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON In a light- hearted speech punctured by laughter Monday a 66-year-old former Social Credit provincial treasurer advised the Loughecd government not to lake itself too seriously. Ted Hinnian pointed to Don Getty, minister of federal and Intergovernmental affairs, who lad just minutes earlier report- ed praise the new government has received from various parts of (he country for its 1973-74 budget, and quipped: "How great they would have sounded had he had his head in an empty water lank." Mr. Himnan recalled that lie too had received praise as a cabinet minister, adding "I wou Id suggest that nobody take these tilings loo serious'y." He proposed some "imagina- tive improvements" to the bud- get: Permission lor "us old fel- lows to use purple gas in our Decentralization of the censhorship board and giving all MLAs free tickets to show- ings of restricted films "espec- ially us old Travel grants to MLAs to allow them "to sec how the rest of the world And a government-spon- sored expedition to search for the fountain of youlh. Pointing to increased support for the handicapped in the pro- vincial budget, Mr. Hinman said "The only encouragement in it is that if we finally de- cide to give up our pride and ncimit our growing mental de- fectivcness that there are plac- es that we can get free treat- ment." He poked fun at Increased spending to Agriculture Minis- ter Hugh Homer's department by relating a story about a vet- erinarian who thought he'd dis- covered a cure for aging in horses but the cure didn't work even after large doses were ap- plied and the horse had to be shot anyway. "I just hope that all Uiese remarkable attempts tlie min- ister is making to save the fam- ily farm and improve agricul- ture- won't In the end lead to the necessity to shoot the horse."

OTTAWA (CP) New Demo- cratic Leder David Lewis said today lus party will vole tonight against a Progressive Con- servative motion or non-con- fidence in the government. Calling the Conservative mo- tion "stupid Tory Hokery- Mr. Lewis said there was no doubt how the NDP would vote even before a morn- ing caucus meeting that made the formal decision. He denied that he is under any pressure from the 30 other New Democratic MPs because of his policy of supporting the minority Liberal government. He was asked why the caucus V.S. spy satellite launched CAPE KENNEDY, Fia.

Mr. Lewis replied that "when people get together, tlwy have a lot of tilings to discuss." COVERED ONE TOPIC A New Democratic official, however, said the meeting dis- cussed only the question of whether to vote with the gov- ernment against the motion a p.m. EST tonight. He had indicated Monday that his party would oppose the mo- tion. The motion, notice of which was given Monday by Con- s e r v a t i v e Leader Rober Stanfield, calls for the defeat el the government on grounds thai its 1072 budget proposals of cor porate tax reductions and accel rted depreciation write-offs lus 1973 budget measures wil not deal adequately with eco omic problems facing the country. Mr. Lewis said the New )emocrats will not compromisi heir principles if they choose ti oppose it. PRINCIPLE ENDORSED He noted that the motion a tacks Finance Minister Johr ed by the United States Air Force early today. An Atlas-Agena rocket Wast- ed from Capo Kennedy about a.m. EST to propel the payload into space on its in telligence-gathering mission. ft was the second satellite launch of its type within three months. As usual, the air force placed a secrecy label on th firing and made no advance an nouncement. The satellites are reported t he capable of monitoring th deployment of missiles by Rus sia and China, of observing mis sile tests and troop movemenl and of providing instant warn- ng of an all-out attack on the United States. The satellite was expected to je positioned in a stationary or- jit about miles above the southwest Pacific Ocean.

TUESDAY 23th: Dividing stores and assorting them, drew out a number -of the wagons for Fort Ellis, Edmonton and Bow River. Most of the officers and men who had time visited the Roche Percee. There is a good vein of coal here, we tried some in the forge and it burned well, it has however more the appearance of lignite than true coal. Tire column was encamped on the banks of the Souris River, in a circular valley surrounded on almost side by a range of hilts some thirty to forty feet in height. Wood, water and grass were abundant, and coal also cou'd be gathered on the right bank of the river. The quality ot this coal was tested by our blacksmiths who used it during our stay there. Although this coal, on account of its friability, is not likely to be exported any great distance, it will neverthe- less be a great boon for the settlers in that region, where wood will soon be scarce. On our right, and about half a mile from the camp, Roche Percee, a pierced rock, as its name indicates. Seen from a distance, one would take it for a statue, whose arms rested on two adjacent supports. An isolated rock, in tha midst of a plain, will naturally attract the attention of a traveller, and in company with some of my comrades, T went to visit this one, which is covered with hieroglyphic charac- ters, indecipherable for us, but doubtlessly representing memorable events that once took place in that country. The third day after our arrival being a Sunday, and, as everybody is aware, the Sabbath Day being consecrated in the British Dominions lo rest and prayer, we that morning ordered to get ready for Church parade. This was the first divine service held since our departure from Duf- ferin. As the Mounted Police was composed of men belonging to different denominations, and there being no chaplain at- tached to the corps, I was wondering who wculd act in their sfead. But I soon heard that, under such circumstances, it was the duty of officers lo act in the place of ministers of the gospel. At ten o'clock a.m. as the six divisions stood ready for orders, Colonel French, who was an Episcopalian, called for the men that belonged to his denomination, and Roman Catholics, Methodists, and Presbyterians were called for, in like manner by officers of their respective creeds. Some denominations held their meetings on the hills, others in the valley. And it was a grand sight to see 300 men stand- Ing in the wilderness, several hundred miles from civilization, giving thanks, in different manners, and offering prayer to their Creator. Although several thousand miles separated us from cur friends in the other provinces, our thoughts and hearts were with theirs, and their prayers and ours were of like nature, and had in view our preservation and the success of the expedition.

The measures include instal- lation of an electric heating system wiiich i 11 guard against icing on major power transmission lines. The blackout, ranging from 30 minutes to 72 hours in some areas, was caused by the knockout of two volt transmission lines by the weight of ice, and the break down of the third line because of overloading. The heating system was de- veloped by Ontario Hydro to guard transmission against ice storms, said Will Smith, Ed montcn .regional manager for Calgary Power.
