Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, March 6, 1974-THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD-3 Dateline Alberta ALCB workers on job EDMONTON (CP) Alberta Liquor Control Board employees were back at work Tuesday after a series of "study sessions" disrupted retail sales and distribution of liquor during the last week. Civil Service Association members had threatened to shut-down all ALCB outlets in the province if the contract was not reopened. They claim an inferior contract imposed by legislation and escalating costs of living have left them the poorest-paid public employees in the province. Hospital plan announced EDMONTON (CP) An immediate start has beep authorized for planning of expanded facilities for Fort McMurray General Hospital, Neil Crawford, Health and Development Minister, announced Tuesday. The four-phase development will take the hospital to 300 beds from its existing 54 beds by 1985, said Mr. Crawford, who said complete support services also will be provided on schedule.

His office said he became ill during a meeting with David Rockefeller, chairman of the Chase Manhattan Bank, after having lunch with guitarist Andres Segovia. An impresario for the last six decades, Hurok headed Hurok Concerts, a division of General Electric's subsidiary, Tomorrow Entertainment. "I don't recognize my age- age is for the he said recently. "Today is not so a better day." At once feisty and charming, Hurok was honored last year with a gala that brought persons to the Metropolitan Opera House and raised nearly for the Performing Arts Research Centre of the New York Public Library. S. Hurok Presents became synonymous with entertainment from the Soviet Union. He brought the Bolshoi Ballet on a North American tour last year and had just announced that the Moiseyev Dance Company would tour for him this year. His sponsorship of Soviet artists was responsible for the fi rebornbing on Jan. 27, 1972, of his office here. Hurok was overcome by smoke from the firebombing incident, which killed a receptionist. Hurok said he had no sympathy for the Jewish Defence League, which was linked to the bombing. "The JDL is just a small group objecting to everything. They'd didn't do any good as far as the Jewish question in America, in Russia or in Is- he said. Hurok is survived by his wife, the former Emma Runitch. from whom he was separated; a daughter and three stepsons.

Morri- son said his association had recommended that, if the government needed more money to operate airports, it should levy a percentage tax with a ceiling of about IS. "Anything higher than that would be unconscionable at this time, when air fares already are under considerable pressure from rising fuel costs and in- creases in other operating ex- penses." he said. Hit by tree OTTAWA (CP) Opposition demands that Canadian subsidiaries be freed of American trading constraints increased Tuesday despite government as- surances that such restrictions will not stop the sale of Canadian locomotives to Cuba. Progressive Conservative spokesmen joined the. New Democrats in calling on the government to end subjection of Canadian subsidiaries to an American law forbidding United States companies from dealing with certain countries. Their demands were unmiti- gated by Prime Minister Trudeau's assurance in the Commons that an Sis-million locomotive sale to Cuba will go through despite the U.S. Trading with the Enemy Act. "The government has the means to make sure the deal goes through and we'll exercise he said. His comment came moments after Trade Minister Alastair Gillespie suggested the problem might be solved if American di- rectors resigned from MLW- Worthington, the Montreal company involved in the locomotive deal. Mr. Gillespie said he told the company's president such resignations would be expected if the directors' positions were preventing the sale. He told reporters later he believes the company is GRANDE PRAIRIE John Van Den Dungen. 31, of Fairview, was killed when struck by a falling tree at a logging site about 70 miles south of here, RCMP said the logger was culling trees when one tangled in Jhp branches of another and was propped upright.
