Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, March 8, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 3 Rural, native housing program praised Nursing homes press proposal for segregation EDMONTON (CP) Representatives of nursing homes in the province have approached several government agencies to help provide facilities to segregate the aged from mentally distrubed patients in nursing homes. Mrs. I. M. Mollerup- director of nurses at the Good Samaritan Nursing Home in Edmonton, said approaches have been made to the Alberta Hospital Services Commission, the Mental Health Association and the Alberta Hospital. Requests were made for segregated facilities and increased staff. The problem surfaced recently when an 83-year-old man was beaten by a mentally disturbed woman in the same institution. "It's said Dale Murray, whose father was attacked by a mentally disturbed woman. "Mentally disturbed patients are being housed among sane said Mr. Murray. "It's a grave injustice being forced down the throats of Edmonton's senior citizens by the provincial government." The elder Mr. Murray was watching television in his private room at the home when struck repeatedly by the woman. Mrs. Mollerup said the beating incident is not a rare occurrence. "It's a province wide program and we're trying to do something about it."

C when Montana went on daylight FRANK McMAHON McMahon donation illegal By BRUCE LEVETT WASHINGTON (CP) Canadian financier Frank McMahon, who contributed to the re-election of President Nixon in 1972, may have to take his money back. John Barker, a public affairs assistant in the office of Leon 'Jaworski, special Watergate prosecutor, said Thursday that contributions by foreign nationals to United States campaign funds Asked whether contributions found to be illegal would be returned, Barker said: "It would depend on who got the money. In the case of the Committee to Re- elect, where it has been found that a contribution might not have been legal, there has been no hesitation about returning that McMahon, oilman and horse owner, was born in Moyie, B.C. He has homes in Calgary, Vancouver and Palm Beach, Fla., and is shown in General Ac- counting .Office (GAO> reports to have been one of the larges.t foreign contributors to the pres- ident's campaign. President Nixon, in a Wednesday night news conference, said: "All contributions from foreign sources are prohibited under campaign reform that we have recommended." Barker, in a telephone interview, said, "They're already illegal." However, he declined comment on published reports that political contributions by for- eigners are under investigation. He did say that a previous analysis of the situation by the justice department appeared to be in error. GAO reports show that McMahon made 28 contributions of 12.500 and each. Any contribution greater than is subject to federal gift tax. Most of the contributions went to Nixon re-election campaigns in various states. Native council president says plan meets every need Gray checks steel price increases OTTAWA (CP) Consumer Affairs Minister Herb Gray said Thursday he will check on recent price increases by three major steel companies to see whether any restrictive trade regulations have been violated. He made the promise in the Commons after David Lewis. New Democratic Party leader, questioned an eight- percent rise in rolled steel prices by Dominion Foundaries and Steel Ltd.. Hamilton. He said the increase is almost the same as earlier price rises announced by Algoma Steel Corp. Ltd., Sault Ste. Mane, and Steel Co. (Canada) Ltd., Hamilton. Mr. Gray no inquiries have yet been made by his de- partment but the government is aware of the increases and be will have inquiries made. Mr. Lewis also asked when a permanent chairman will be appointed and other vacancies filled on the restrictive trade practices commission. OTTAWA (CP) A new ru- ral and native housing program announced by the government Thursday has been described by a Native Council of Canada official as a -major change in social policy. "This policy is geared to meet the worst housing needs in said Tony Belcourt, native council president. "It has the potential of meeting every requirement that we have set out." His comments followed an announcement by Urban Affairs Minister Ron Basford that the government intends to buy or build about housing units in the next five years for rural' and native families. Mr. Basford said the government will provide dwellings for purchase with payments based on income. Residential rehabilitation programs, previously limited to cities, will be extended to rural areas. In addition, other programs such as assisted home own- ership and co-operative housing would be altered to meet rural requirements. The government was allocating about million this year for the new housing effort. The minister said that while the housing programs are for all rural, non-farm families, native groups "quite clearly Poll worse for Nixon NEW YORK (AP) Poll- taker Louis Harris reported Thursday that the number of people who think President Nixon is doing an over-all good job dropped one per cent in February to a new low of 29 per cent. Only 15 per cent of those polled in a Feb. 18-22 survey of households rated Nixon "good" or "excellent" in inspiring confidence, and 75 per cent agreed with the statement that he "has lost .so much credibility that it will be hard for him to be accepted as president again." have the worst housing in Canada" and should get a major portion of the new units. Talks would be held with provincial governments soon because some of the programs involve provincial partnership. For example, the federal government will pay 75 per cent of the capital cost of rural and native housing projects while provinces will assume the remaining amount, Mr. Basford said. The two governments would also share operating losses. The partnership arrange- ment had been largely restricted to subsidized rental housing in cities. "In rural and small community situations, we do not believe that rental housing offers the best solution in most cases." The new policy follows de- mands by some provincial governments, such as New Brunswick, for rural housing aid and a request last September by the native council for increased help for native peoples. The council asked for con- struction or acquisition of at least to new hous- ing units over five years for native people. It also urged that the government provide trained Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. (CMHC) employees to help native groups manage housing projects. Mr. Basford said native people will be hired in CMHC branch offices and will assist in developing native housing projects. The native group at CMHC headquarters in Ottawa.
