Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta  - THE UTHMIDGI HERALD - W.dntiday, March 10. 1971 KIDNAPPED DIPLOMAT HONORED - James Cross, kidnapped and held prisoner for 60 days by French Canadian extremists in Montreal last year, leaves Buckingham Palace in London and shows insignia of Companion of the Order of St. Michael and St. George just presented to him by Queen Elizabeth II. With Cross is his wife who attended the investiture. Cross was senior British trade commissioner in Montreal when he was kidnapped. MPs congratulate new bridegroom OTTAWA (CP) - Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield said Tuesday that now that Prime Minister Trudeau has sprung his big marriage surprise, the Commons will be prepared for any future little surprises. If such a little surprise appears, Mr. Trudeau replied in the Commons, he will make sure it is silent in the public galleries. The reference was to former prime minister John Diefenba-ker's story Friday that Mr. Tru-deau's bride, Margaret, as a little girl shouted from a Commons gallery "there's my daddy" when she spotted her father, then fisheries minister Jimmy Sinclair. The public galleries were packed for Mr. Trudeau's return to the Commons after his marriage and honeymoon. All the Liberals wore red roses in their buttonholes. Stanley Knowles, New Democrat House leader, said it is one of Parliament's rights to see Mrs. Trudeau at an early date. SUSPENSE ENDED Mr. Stanfield, speaking In French, said he was snowbound in Montreal Friday when Com-m o n s congratulations were being offered to Mr. Trudeau on his marriage. He said the prime minister had done away with the suspense about his bachelorhood in a most splendid way and with artistic ingenuity. Mr. Trudeau said he did not know quite how to thank MPs for their good wishes because of lack of experience in the Commons and in matrimony. Suddenly switching the mood of the House, Mr. Trudeau said his joy has been tempered by the death of Ab Douglas, Liberal MP for Assiniboia. He described Mr. Douglas, who died Saturday in Regina, as a man of dignity, integrity and devotion to duty who had the respect and friendship of all MPs. MIXED FEELINGS Mr. Trudeau confessed mixed feelings: Sorrow about Mr. Douglas and gratitude to MPs on all sides of the House for their spontaneous sharing of his happiness. This was evidence of the spirit of Parliament, a "precious place" where sometimes emotions were strained and on other occasions good feeling dominated. All MPs were devoted to the betterment of Canada. "I am proud to sit in this House," Mr. Trudeau concluded to applause. Boy bitten by rabid bat first human to survive LIMA, Ohio (AP) - When Verna Winkler's eyes follow her seven-year-old son about the family farm there is often wonder in them. Sometimes her mind goes back to those horror-filled days last fall when the boy, Matthew, was bitten by a rabid bat, when he was wracked by the rabies virus and its concerted attack on his small body. What brings the wonder to his mother's eyes is that until Matthew's illness there had been no record of a human surviving a confirmed case of rabies. Now the symptoms are gone, and hopefully with them, the infection. "He's just doing real good," says Dr. John Stechschulte, the boy's pediatrician. "He is in excellent physical condition . . . completely free of any signs or symptoms of the previous disease. CAN AFFECT BRAJN He said complications involving the brain, heart and lungs cause death in rahies. The body can defeat the virus itself. "There's no cure for the disease. But we do feel that treating complications before they occur may be the secret." "I expect that by summer he will be on completely unrestricted activity," the pediatrician said. "We're going to keep him away from crowds. There is a lot of infection now in schools so we will keep him in a home environment. "No one has ever reached this point in recovery from rabies and we can't completely rule out a relapse, but we den't want anything to happen to contribute to one." Matthew was bitten last Oct. 10 while he slept in his farm home at Wilshire, Ohio. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas Winkler, responded to his screams and found a bat biting his left thumb. The father captured the animal and tests proved it rabid. Despite vaccination, Matthew developed symptoms o� rabies and was taken to hospital Nov. 5. It was nearly seven weeks before doctors reported he was recovering. He left hospital Jan. 27-his seventh birthday. Moon car switched on MOSCOW. (AP) - The Soviet moon car Lunokhod 1 has resumed operations on the Sea of Rains, Tass reported Tuesday. The Soviet news agency said the eight-wheeled vehicle covered 892 feet in a communications session Monday. Tass said ground controllers switched on the craft's television cameras Sunday so that they could photograph the sun rising over the horizon o[ the barren plain where Lunokhod has been operating since Nov. 17. Lunokhod now is in its fifth lunar day of operations. When the sun sets', the craft must go into hibernation for the two-week lunar night because it relies on the sun to power its batteries. NOVELIST DIES j LONDON (API - Novelist ! Stevie Smith - Florence Mar-: garet Smith-died Sunday night I in Asliburton hospital, Devon. Canadians may get share of gas plant job benefits FOX CREEK (CP) - United States firms control most of the action in the largest natural gas - processing plant in Canada but Don Cameron says efforts' are being made to ensure that Canadians get a share of the benefits. Mr. Cameron is a vice-president of the Ralph M. Parsons Construction Co. of Canada Ltd., Calgary-based engineers and builder of the $97.8-million plant 130 miles northwest of Edmonton. Parsons, whose parent firm operates out of Los Angeles, has only 22 Americans among the 1,600 construction workers building the plant and Mr. Cameron says "we'll even replace them ... if we can find qualified Canadians." Rut few Canadians have the expertise to direct such huge projects, he says. The native of Prince Albert says this will change as more large plants- are put up in Canada and "procedures and policies are passed on to Canadians." Meanwhile, Parsons is spending as much money as possible in the country, with 85 per cent of construction materials purchased and made in Canada. That's about $20 million worth. About $5 millfbn is spent each month in the Kaybob area. The monthly payroll is $1.4 million, with the Canadian construction workers earning an average of $337 a week. Other benefits to the economy include permanent work for 100 people in production operations, property taxes, land sales and a royalty to the province of about 17 per cent of the slant's net income. But the plant had to be engi- neered and designed in California, at a cost of $20 million, because Parsons could not get enough engineers in Canada to do the job. Faces charge of espionage DON'CASTER, England (AP) - An electrical engineer, Nicholas Anthony Prager, was accused in court Tuesday of "two major acts of espionage" in 1961. He was charged under the Official Secrets Act. Prager, 42, was also accused in court of meeting an intelligence agent in Prague, Yugoslo-vakia, last January. He was employed by a major computer firm, GEC-Elliott Automation. He was ordered to reappear in court next Tuesday. "We'd need every engineer in Alberta for 10 months," Mr. Cameron says. The money for the Kaybob South plant, 35 miles west of here, is being put up by a number of oil companies. Chevron Standard Ltd.. of Calgary, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Standard Oil of .California, is the major shareholder and will be the plant operator. The other participants are Amoco Canada' Petroleum Co. Ltd., Canadian Superior Oil Ltd., DeKalb Petroleum Corp., Canadian Fina Oil Ltd., Hamilton Brothers Canadian Gas Co. Ltd., Mobil Oil Canada Ltd. and Standard Oil Co. of British Columbia Ltd. The completed plant will be capable of producing 284 million cubic feet a day of quality pipeline gas, 17,950 barrels a day of liquid petroleum gas and 35,500 barrels a day of condensate. It will have the world's two largest sulphur-recovery trains, each capable of producing 1,532 tons of sulphur a day. The plant on a 100-acre site required more than a million pounds of structural steel and the pouring of more than 27,000 cubic yards of concrete.
