LETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD. lower Level 7th Street Shopping Mall Lethbridge, Alberta Phone (403) 328-7411 FILING CABINETS Uj tanks Occupants of compact cars should have better protection from gas tank explosion occurring as the result of accidents, says ' a recommendation of a coroner's jury in Lethbridge. The six-man jury, investigating the Jan. 20 death of William Girbov, of Coaldale, concluded that the 18-year-old youth died at the scene as a result of extensive burns suffered when the gas tank in his compact car was driven into the back seat, spraying gasoline throughout the interior when it ruptured. Evidence presented Thursday at the inquest indicated that the Girbov car had slowed to make a left turn from Highway 3 onto a side road near Chin. The car, was struck from, behind by an eastbound car driven by Edwin Schmdt, 53, of Chin, causing it to skid into the westbound lane and spin around. Girbov's car was then struck from behind by a westbound car driven by Oscar Anholt, 67, of Hawarden, Sask. David Armstrong, of Coal-dale, who witnessed the accident, told the inquest that Girbov's car burst into flames when it was struck by the Schmidt vehicle. Attempts to rescue Girbov from his car were hampered by the extensive flames, evidence showed.. After the accident, Schmidt was given a breathalyser test by the RCMP, which showed a blood-alcohol level of .21, according to evidence from Const. Lloyd Bredenhoff, of Taber RCMP. Under the criminal code, it is an offence to drive a car with a blood-alcohol level in excess of .08. . The jury concluded that Schmidt's reactions were sufficiently slowed by alcohol to render him unable to cope with the situation. Schmidt testified at the inquest uhaer the protection of the Canada Evidence Act, whereby < his evidence cannot be used against him at later proceedings. Schmidt has pleaded not guilty to a charge of driving while over .08, which was laid following the accident. Schmidt said in his testimony that he had followed Girbov for about two miles, driving about 50 to 55 miles per hour. He said that he was about 150 to 200 feet behind the Girbov car, and when it slowed for the turn, "I slammed on the brakes." The brakes locked and he was unable to steer around the car. Del Kaupp, a shop foreman at Enerson Motors, testified that he had examined the Schmidt vehicle after the accident and found that the brakes were in an unsafe condition. The accident occurred at, about 5:30 p.m. when road and weather conditions were good. Evidence could not determine whether Girbov had his lights on, or had signalled for the turn.

STUBBS We've said before that a chemical isn't a drug until its correct usage has been proved through exhaustive research. One of the outstanding examples of this fact lis that of "sulfa-Inilimade" which was discovered as a chemical compound back in 1908. It has saved hundreds of thousands of lives since medical research proved its great healing qualities. The penicillin organism was first identified in 1929 by Sir Alexander Fleming, but it took another 15 years before careful research allowed it to be called a drug which the pharmaceutical industry's research found the method which allowed mass production in its now familiar form.

Foster allays educators' fears By GREG MclNTYRE Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON - Advanced Education Minister Jim Foster read a prepared statement Thursday aimed to eliminate fears by vocational schools, colleges and universities about loss of autonomy and academic freedom. Mr. Foster told the legislature a reorganization of the power structure In the province since creation of the advanced education department last year will not undermine the authority of local boards of governors. Abolition of the colleges and universities commissions in April will transfer responsibilities to the minister of advanced AKROYD'S PLUMBING, HEATING AND GASFITTING 24-HOUR SERVICE WORK New Installations' Phone 328-2106 1972 G.T.

The prepared statement was a response to concerns expressed by a number of higher education institutions, particularity the University of Calgary. Reporting on two weeks of talks between'himself and Gordon Swann, acting chairman of the U of C board of governors, Mr. Foster said "Both parties are now satisfied that no major points of disagreement exist concerning matters of jurisdiction and autonomy." Universities can expect "direct and regular access" to the minister, his officials and a proposed advisory committee on university affairs, he said, and "as a matter of practice, issues of policy which affect the university will be subject to consultation with the board of governors prior to implementation." The reorganization of the advanced education department currently underway will not be legislated, he said. "The powers of the boards of governors are spelled out in legislation and I can't change that by reorganizing my department," he said later in an interview. The University of Lethbridge has expressed concern, along with other universities, about the current reorganization and about possible implementation by the government of recommendations in the Worth Report. The U of L has issued a prepared statement objecting to a Worth Report recommendation that university senates be abolished. Mr. Foster said some recommendations of the Worth Report are being implemented and some have been rejected outright. He said he would have more to say about the report in a speech in the legislature later this month, but that he personally favors retaining senates.

Mr. Foster said he's talked to U of L officials on a wide-ranging variety of issues from the government reorganization to student affairs. In addition to speeches in the legislature, Mr. Foster said he and Education Minister Lou Hyndman intend to table about four position papers on differ ent aspects of the Worth Report. By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer Initial sales feelers are being put out by Alberta hog producers following completion of arrangements which will allow the contracting of provincial hogs for the export market. Designed by the Alberta Hog Producers Marketing Board, the contract will be the first system to allow the sale into the future production of an agricultural product in Canada. Producers will be able to have guaranteed sales for one to five years at a price minimum and sales conditions favorable to them. The producer has the right to set a reserve price on the duration of the contract and the frequency of the deliveries. Gordon Ross, regional livestock supervisor with the provincial department of agriculture, says both the sellers and buyers will be protected through a bonding system. This will firmly establish the ability of the hog producer to deliver and the buyer to pay. To protect the domestic consumer of hog products, all the contract holders must export the product. This will assure that the expected added production resulting from guaranteed sales out lets will not flood the domestic market should the price of hog products in Canada escalate above the contract price. The buyer can either ship the hogs purchased under contract or sell an equivalent amount of pork product, assuring that the domestic supplies will not be affected by the contracts. Southern Alberta hog producers will be in a somewhat disadvantaged position, says Mr. Ross, since the delivery point for export hogs under contract is limited to Calgary, Red Deer, Edmonton and Grande Prairie. Lethbridge and Fort Macleod are designated as assembly points producers can deliver to for domestic sales only. Once E. S. P. FOX Certified Dental Mechanic FOX (Leth.)

Phone 327-2793 at the delivery point, the cost factor for transportation to the producer ends. "This means producers in Southern Alberta will have to deliver to Calgary," he says. To alleviate fears of changes in production costs, the system involves a f'orumula which will shift the actual price received by the seller in relation to the change in feed costs, says Marvin Gaits, regional economist with the department. Through a price adjustment in production costs, the producer will be able to maintain the profit margin set up in the original signing. Once the profit margin is set, the prlcb the producer receives rises and falls in proportion to the increase or decrease in the cost of producing the animals for export. In the event a producer can't deliver the number of hogs specified by the contract, a protection has been built in for the buyer. If the nondelivery is due to a default on the part of the producer, the Alberta Hog Producers Marketing Board will supply the animals, charging the contract holder if the hogs have been bought off the domestic market above the contract price. A special catastrophe fund has been established to protect the contract if the holder dies. Also covered with the fund will be loss to shipments through fire or wind, diseases listed through the federal health of animals department and gov- AIR CONDITION NOW With tit ROUND ONE by ^^Q^^ ALCON REFRIGERATION LTD.

The details of the forward contract are being expounded at a series ot meetings throughout Alberta. At a Fort Macleod meeting Wednesday, producers varied in their reaction to the plan. Tom Genesis of Granum.said he is planning to get into a hog production unit with the construction of s special hog barn. The announcement of the contract arrangements has spurred his plans and he is planning to find out all he can about the venture. Albert Hurd of Fort Macleod claims the plan will not benefit the smaller producer. He says it will be good for the producer with enough sows to fill the contract. Got your spring shock yet?
