Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Friday, March News in brief PM won't 6live above shop' LONDON (Reuter) Prime Minister Harold Wilson has decided not to live at 10 -Downing Street, the traditional London home of Britain's head of gov- ernment. He and his wife, Mary, will continue to live a half-mile from Downing Street in a house they acquired a few months after Wilson lost the 1970 general election. The Wilsons used the family apartment on the upper floor at Downing Street while Wilson was in power from 1964 to 1970. But the prime minister said he had grown to dislike the practice of "living above the shop." There was a tendency for colleagues to pester him with non-essential matters.

BRIDGE RUG DRAPES LTD. FREE ESTIMATES Phone 329-4722 COLLEGE MALL Reads throne speech Lieutenant-Governor Grant MacEwan reads what may be his last speech from the throne at the opening of the third session of the 17th Alberta Legislature Thurs- day in Edmonton. Mr. MacEwan's term as Alberta's vice-regal representative ex- pires this year. Ailing insurance firms 'should receive help9 EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta government should temporarily grasp control of provincial life insurance companies facing insolvency, a judicial inquiry into the failure of Cosmopolitan Life Assurance Co. was told this week. John Tuck of Toronto, executive director of the Canadian Life Insurance Association, and John A. McPtiee of Edmonton, Alberta superintendent of insurance from 1930 to 1972, agreed that the superintendent should be empowered to take quick act lion to save floundering com- panies. The two also agreed on the necessity of a close relationship between the superintendent and the cabinet minister under whom he works. Mr. McPhee testified that if communicaions had been better between himself and the former deputy provincial secretary. P. B. Howard, the insurance office might have obtained adequate staff and facilities to supervise provincial insurance companies effectively. But a difference of philosophy separated the superintendent, who felt government should assist the companies, and Mr. Howard, who was "dubious" about government involvement, said Mr. McPhee. Mr. Howard criticized the insurance office's constant dialogue with new provincial insurance companies and said more time should be spent writing reports, testified Mr. McPhee. But if the provincial secretary had received reports during the companies' early years, "Cosmopolitan and other companies would be put in liquidition im- mediately" because their capital was impaired, he said. Mr. McPhee suggested that the superintendent of insurance, rather than the securities commission, decide how much a company's initial share subscriptions should cost. He added that the insurance office should be given the same autonomy as the securities commission and both should be placed under the same cabinet minister. The inquiry under District Court Judge Roger Kerans adjourned to March 11.

Included will be "an attractive, relaxing near the legislature, he said in an interview after the reading of the throne speech. The entire re-development will be initiated by an architectural competition in 1974, Or. Backus said. Detailed planning would take place in 1975-76 and construction would follow shortly afterwards. Improvement in the area's over all aesthetics will be the basic objective, he said. Cars would be banned from the area with provision for parking made elsewhere. Additional office building may be built around the periphery of the area, he -added. Other facilities being considered are an arboretum and a foot bridge from the legislature grounds across the North Saskatchewan River to Kinsman Park. B.C. speaker expels Anderson second time VICTORIA (CP) He was expelled from the British Columbia Legislature again Thursday, but this time Liberal leader David Anderson accused Premier Dave Barrett and an interior MLA of influence peddling in the ongoing "chicken and egg war" between government and opposition. Egg producer Savo Kovachich of Tabor Lake, B.C., near Prince George, got "a special'deal" on a fine he owed to the egg marketing board, Mr. Anderson charged, because the premier ordered a reduction and Mr. Kovachich was a supporter of Alf Nunweiler (NDP Fort George.) On Wednesday, the Liberal chief was thrown out of the legislature for refusing to withdraw accusations that the premier and Agriculture Minister Dave Stupich had lied in denying to the legislature that Mr. Barrett had pressured the egg board SLA for past two weeks HILLSBOROUGH, Calif. (AP) Another distribution of free food to San Francisco Bay area poor takes place today, the fourth financed by newspaper executive Randolph Hearst in an effort to free his daughter, Patricia, from kidnappers. But since the giveaways be- gan Feb. 22, there has been no move by the 20-year-old woman's captors, the. Sym- bionese Liberation Army to bargain further on her release. Nor has there been any new assurance from the SLA that Miss Hearst is alive. Between her abduction Feb. 4 and Feb. 21, three ta'ped messages were received from the group assuring her parents that she was not being mistreated. Ludlow Kramer, executive director of People in Need, which is handling the food dis- tribution, said Thursday "as of today, more than food packets costing have been distributed." Hearst issued a statement Thursday after meeting with Kramer and a coalition of community organizations the SLA assigned to implement the food giveaway. "Certainly the maximum effort is being put forth to meet the SLA's demand." Hearst said. He said the gas shortage had delayed some out-of-state food deliveries and there were other problems which are being solved. "The coalition has been doing a great Hearst said. Kramer estimated the original commitment from Hearst and William Randolph Hearst Foundation probably will enable the handout program to continue "for another four weeks."

A 2nd SL into reducing the fine to This time, he didn't actually use the words, influence peddling he said "special deal" but Hartley Dent (NDP Skeena) who was presiding over the house at the time said that's what the words amounted to and ordered him to retract. Mr. Anderson refused, and refused again when House Speaker Gordon Dowding asked him to. "There's no way I can withdraw that said Mr. Anderson, who has staked his seat in the legislature on the belief that Premier Barrett lied about the events at a meeting in his office 18 months ago. As on the first occasion, he was barred from the house only for the remainder of the day's sitting What he will do today when the house resumes consideration of the premier's spending estimates held up since Monday Mr. Anderson' wouldn't say. The two week controversy, besides throwing the premier's credibility into doubt, has also severely held up legislative progress. It took four days last week for MLAs to pass the minister of agriculture's spending estimates, and all of this week has been spent on Mr. Barrett's. Fourteen other departments remain on the list.' Mr. Anderson walked out of the legislature into television lights and a forest of microphones and repeated the charges he made inside the house. He said the only reason for the meeting of egg board directors, civil servants and Mr. Stupich in the premier's office Oct. 26, 1972 was to reduce the- fine against Mr. Kovachich. He called again for an independent judicial inquiry into the whole affair, a proposal already rejected by the premier, who said Mr. Anderson apparently had already made up his mind. "You don't want a legislative committee, you want a yelled Mr. Barrett while the Liberal leader was still in the house. Streaking dozen VICTORIA (CP) The staid Empress Hotel was struck by the streaking craze Thursday during the dinner hour when a dozen nude men ran about 250 feet from the rear entrance out the front door. "They just went flashing by and that's all" said hotel room clerk Ken Wigen shortly after the lobby was crossed by the men. He estimated their time of passage at five or six seconds. Golan Heights uneasy By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Israelis and Syrians clashed with tanks, cannons and mis- siles today on the tense Golan Heights front amid Israeli re- ports that Damascus is pre- paring for a new round of fighting. A Syrian military commu- nique said the hostilities began with a 90-minute tank and artillery duel in the central sector of the front. The Israeli military command said the. Syrians fired a number of anti-tank missiles at an Israeli patrol in the Tel Marai central sector and Israeli forces returned the fire. Neither side reported casu- alties The Israeli newspaper Maariv says that the United States has warned Tel Aviv of a possible Syrian intention to renew hostilities, along the Golan front. The Syrian army is in a "high state of readiness" and armed with many ground-to-ground mis- siles, the paper says. Arab oil meeting up in the air CAIRO (AP) The Arab oil countries still have not agreed where and when their oil ministers will meet to take up Egypt's proposal that they lift their embargo on shipments to the United States, an official of the Egyptian oil ministry said Thursday night. The meeting was originally scheduled for Feb. 14 in Tripoli, Libya. But Egyptian President Anwar Sadat obtained a postponement so he could do more lobbying for his proposal to end the restrictions against the United States. Egypt said this week that the meeting would be held, Sunday and had been shifted to Cairo. Then Algeria, whose Presi- dent Houari Boumedienne is the current chairman of the Arab League, announced Thursday that it would not move the meeting from Tripoli. It added that the meeting might be postponed until next Wednesday. HELP WANTED PLANT FOREMAN Should have grade 12 .education. Experienced in quality control procedures. Mechanically inclined.
