Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, March 17, 1971 - THf LETHBRIDOE HERALD - 2S 8 patients die from infections DETROIT (AP) - During the lost four months, eight patients at Henry Ford Hospital have died of blood infections as the result of receiving intravenous fluids contaminated with bacteria, federal'officials report. Soviet police seize family >I0SC0W (AP) - Soviet police seized a Soviet doctor's family Tuesday after they had entered United States embassy grounds to seek information on emigration. The embassy delivered a strong protest accusing the police of "violation of embassy territory." An .embassy spokesman said the incident developed into a struggle between a dozen U.S. employees and the Soviet militiamen. Militia guards pulled the doctor's wife and two daughters, aged 5 and 9, onto the sidewalk in front of the embassy and took them away. New route to China MONTREAL (CP) - A direct high-frequency radio circuit for telegraph traffic : between Canada and Communist China has been opened by Canadian Overseas Telecommunication Corp., president D. F. Bowie announced Tuesday. Mr. Bowie said negotiations for the circuit were begun after Canada estab lished diplomatic relations with China Oct. 13. Another 52 persons at the hospital were infecetd but cured, said investigators from the federal centre for disease control in Atlanta, Ga. The findinlgs, released the other day after three months of study, counted 150 cases of septicemia-blood poisoning-brought on by the contaminated fluids' throughout the country. One death was recorded in addition to the eight here. Officials said they were uncertain why Ford hospital bad so many cases. Dr. Edward Quinn, chief of Ford's infectioos disease sec* tion, said all eight patients who died were terminally ill with cancer or strokes, and were especially vulnerable to infection, i The fluids are used to nourish patients unable to eat. Federal investigators said the bacteria got under plastic liners of the intravenous fluid's bottle caps during manufacture by Abbott Laboratories of North Chicago, 111. Dr. Dennis G. Maki of CDC said Abbott Laboratories was "a very unfortunate victim of totally unforeseen circumstances." "I've investigated their plant and they are exceedingly competent. They take every possible precaution. They are still trying to find out what happened."

Driver pictures idea considered EDMONTON (CP) - The Alberta government is seriously studying the possibility of placing driver's photographs on their licences, Highways Minister Gordon Taylor told the legislature. Mr. Taylor, replying to J. W. Horan (SC - Edmonton-Jasper Place), said that there are some difficulties to be overcome but that the government is aware of the value of photographs on driver's licences. Mr. Taylor said getting pictures of all residents over an area of 200,000 square miles poses a problem but talks with a Canadian firm that takes the pictures has been productive, "They have advanced a plan which may work without too much inconvenience to drivers." Mr. Taylor said the inconvenience and the cost were two major factors in any such program. Speeding charge dismissed WETASKIW1N (CP) - A speeding charge against Mr. Justice Harold Riley of the Alberta Supreme Court was dismissed here. Judge R. L. Welliver said in provincial court that he found reasonable doubt the RCMP stopped the right vehicle. Mr. Justice Riley was charged with travelling 82 miles an hour in a 70-mile-an-hour zone on Highway 2 about 40 miles south of Edmonton. The Crown produced as witnesses RCMP Constable D. W. Welke, observer in an airplane, Constable I. C. Rumpf, who stopped Riley and Sergeant Jerry Tetzloff who testified as to the accuracy of the painted markings on the highway. An Edmonton jeweller testified the stop watches used by RCMP are accurate to within 10 seconds in 24 hours. At the hearing Mr. Justice Riley and his wife testified they were surprised when stopped as they did not think thay were speeding. Vote by mail plan pressed EDMONTON (CP) - A city council legislative committee will recommend disabled persons be given the opportunity to vote by mail, Mayor Ivor Dent said here. The vote by mail would only be applied for advance polls, he said. The city has not the power to make the change itself because an amendment to the municipal elections act is required. The request will go either to the province or to the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association, the mayor said. Claims government lied on B.C. job situation VANCOUVER (CP) - Alex Randy says the federal government lied about his job status last month to appease British Columbia politicians. And the job itself - research on low-income groups - is a waste of time and taxpayers' money, the 25-year-old former secretary of the Unemployed Citizens' Welfare Improvement Council said here in an interview. Mr. Bandy was hired Jan. 15 by the citizenship branch of the secretary of state's department. Last month, after B.C. Liberal Members of Parliament and provincial politicians raised a storm of protest over Bandy's appointment, Burnaby-Seymour MP Ray Perrault said Bandy had been recalled from thJa field and was writing his final report for the government. "There was no such thing as a final report," Mr. Bandy said. "That Was just a lie to put everybody off the track. "It was just something to pacify the public - especially to the B.C. Liberal MPs and (B.C. Rehabilitation Minister) Phil Gaglardi. Mr. Bandy said his job was to discuss with low-income groups the possibility of government funding for community service projects initiated by the organizations. But in February, he said, hs was ordered to start gathering information about the groups for the government - how strong each organization is, and what each group's makeup is in terms of age, ethnic background and militancy. "I've had enough," he said. "It's time people started finding cut what kind of program the government is running. "It's especially important that poor people find out that these (government officials) are wolves in sheep's clothing, and that the public in general find cut how taxpayers' money is being spent." He said the $44,000 spsnt by the government on the research project would have been better spent in direct funding to citizens' groups. "They don't need ��uys travelling around the province to talk to them. If the federal government wants to find out if these groups need money for special projects, all it needs are some six-cent stamps." Mr. Bandy said he has been authorized to make only one field trip - to Victoria - since his recall from the field last month. "I have been paid for doing nothing, and they seem to think that this is perfectly acceptable." He is expscted to remain on the federal government payroll at a salary of $520 a month until his original term expires March 31. AMEX HEAD RESIGNS NEW YORK (AP) - Ralph S.
