More grain cars not the answer Additional boxcars arc not the total answer lo the grains movement problem, said Al Bcaltie, manager ol public re- lations for tiie Alberta Wheat Pool. Speaking to a grain handling and marketing seminar here, Mr. Bcaltic said the railway companies have not renewed boxcars over Hie past 40 years ns they became unsuitable for transporting grain. A portion ol (he hoscar- per year decline has been re- placed by special hopper cars suitable (or hauling grain. Mr. Beattie told 50 agribusl- nessmcn that (here are boxcars and hopper cars oper- ating in grain transportation on Canadian railways. lie said a pressure to use the newer hopper cars for com- modities other than grain makes the replacement value of the new cars "a hard cqua lion to balance." If the total transportation system is operating smoothly the movement is okay. 'If the rails ore clean and the employees are all working, if the ships arrive on time anrl the grain is available, this rol- ling stock cars) can per- mit export of 800 million bush- els of grain front Canada an- he said. "This formula evaporates whenever the railways arc cut off at the pass by snow slides or are interrupted by labor stoppages." He suggested that'this is the real reason for advocating in creased storage space, at Ihe west coast, even with the added expense. Canada exports (lie highesl percentage of total grain pro- duction in the world as a coun try which makes transportation a'vital link in the agricullura economy, Mr. Beattie, said. Because of this Canada is es pecially vulnerable to changes in world demand. Volume of supply is Canada1, major plus factor in the world market.

Civil rights endangered Constant vigilance protects public By RUDY J1AUGENEDKK Herald Staff Writer Unless the rights of Cana- dians arc under constant vigi- ance by the public, they will dwindle to resemble those o{ living in Europe dunni; .he late 1930s, Douglas Arin- ilrong, vice-president of the Al- jerta Human Rights Associa- tion said in Lethbridgc Thurs- day. Civil rights organizations are not exclusively oriented io- wards developing more indivi- dual rights but also watchdogs of existing ones, be said. Speaking at a meeling of the Southern Alberta Council of Public Affairs, Mr. Armstrong noted an apparent abuse of an individual's civil rights by Ed- monton City Police. Citing the case of Dr. David Craig, Edmonton physician pro- vincially known for his metha- done treatment of heroin ad- dicts who arrested fov al- ledgedly defrauding the Albert.-i Health Care Insurance Com- mission of S43, Mr. Armstrong cited some cjuestionable police tactics. The tactics constituted an abuse of human rights in the eyes of the Human Rights As- sociation, he said. Originally Edmonton police obtained a warrant to arrest )r. Craig and seize the mecli- WHAT WHISKY TRADER? A North West Mounted Police corporal in his 1873 uniform searches Fort Whoop-Up for the one that may have gotten away.

A hospital official said Slier- ring had suffered severe heart injuries, hut was responding to treatment. Sherring was discoverer! on the side of a district road off Highway 5 in the McNally dis- trict about four miles south of Lelhbiiclge by a passing mo torist shortly before 2 a.m, to- day. T ti e unidentified motorist rushed Sherring to hospital where he was admit.led in an unconscious condition. The Letlibridge detachment of RCMP reported Derik Nd- man, 26, of Letlibridge had been charged with robbery with violence and another man was being sought in conneo (ion with the assault. At press time Neiman was in custody in the Lethbridgo RCMP cells. Cliomos out 011 bail Alan James Chomos, 20, charged with non-capital min- der following the shotgun slay- ing of his father Alec Chomos, 55, in their Taher home Feb. 15, is to ba released on property bail. The motion for bail >vas ap- pointed by Alberta Supremo Court Justice A. M. Deciiene Wednesday, following the pre- sentation of a complete psy- chiatric report on Mr. Chomos by defence counsel L. D.

No danger from ice seen near St. Mary River bridge Contrary to some reports, the situation around the St. Mary bridge and dam area is appar- ently not too serious, Officials of PFKA ami the provincial water resources de- partment say they have heard stories about a three-mile long ice jam ar.d some flooding in low lying areas, but they say if the situation was serious, they would have received some official word. "It's possible that there Is a big ice jam down there, but it can't be too serious or someone would have let us know about said a PFRA official. However, it. is possible that a more serious situation could develop as the temperature for at least the next two days is headed for the 55 to 60 degree mark. It will be sunny today with highs reaching 55 before drop- ping to 35 overnight.

PHONE 327-2B32 The co operation of three major unions, longshore union, grain handlers' union and the rail unions is vitally important, ]ie said, in the continual flow of. grain from the Prairies. "We've hod in the past two years many cases of one man walking off a job and they all walk off the he said. "This is in alt three unions." The smooth operation of the system requires the co-ordina- lor of other segments of t he total movement picture also, he .said, including: transporta- tion, elevation into terminal elevators cleaning, some times drying nni! loading of ships.

Mr. Beaton said for years many segments of the industry were involved in keeping Ihe transportation system co or- (limited. Finally it was decided to form the position of grains co- ordinator, one at the wesl coast and one at Thunder Bay, Out. The co ordinator is the buf- fer for everybody concerned with the movement of grain. NEW and USED ORGANS, MUSIQAND WE TAKE GRAIN! Being an officer of the Cana- dian Transport Commissionj Mr. Beaton said he has the power of the Railway Act to fall back on. This allows the commission to literally order the railways what to rto with equipment, cars, everything. "I would like (o stress that at no time in (lie past two years on this grain function lias if been necessary to invoke any of the sections of the Rail- way Act because of Ihe lack of co operation of railways and the grain lie said. Wilh the introduction of the block shipping system, this is even more important, he said. 1 The block shipping system was introduced in the crop ycer 1969-70. The prairies oast and west of the freight break were broken into about 50 blocks. From these blocks, grains arc systematically gathered, hauled" fo mainline terminals and then lo Thunder Ray, Churchill or the west Coast in sufficient volume to meet sales committments. All elevators in the shipping blocks report to the central of- fice all quantities of shipable grain. This grain can be moved as needed for sales. Mr. Beaton said the 'through put" for Vancouver (amount ol grain exported) was about 200 million bushels during the 1960s. For the crop year 1970-71, it increased to 265 million bus- hels. In the first six months of the current crop year it has been 149.3 million bushels, 35 per cent ahead of the same per- iod last vear. of them bo made and retained by the comt, Mr. Armstrong said. The Human Rights Asso- ciation com plains that the po- lice have access (o Lhe file copies whenever they want by obtaining a simple order issued by ;my judge. Any incriminating Informa- tion about any patient included in Ihe files, whether past or present, can be used as evi- dence to prosecute the patient, Mr, Armstrong said. As a result, a severe blo.v lias been levied against Ihe medical profession, which often requires confidential informa- tion in the treatment i'f pa- tients. He said clerical errors in fil- ing for payment from tlic health care insurance commis- sion occur to most doctors oc- casionally, often amounting to hundreds of dollars, but these arc normally dealt with through correspondence. In (he case of Dr, Craig, it was not Ihu AHCIC that made the charge, The charge of fraud laid against Dr. Craig involved a total of nine patients and amounted to less than 55 per patient, The Alberta Human Rights Association is not defending Dr. Craig, said Mr, Armstrong, but only interested in the apparent abuse ot an individual's rights. i The Alberta Human Rights Association currently only has one office (Edmonton) and TS I attempting to expand to other 1 provincial centres. j Mr. Armstrong said chapters i are being considered in Leth- ,-cstw.nrts ml develop di.i-ulglbl.d Bc.llgary nnd Grando cal case history f'es o{ his patients. About 150 of the pal rents were addicts being trmtc'cl through the use of methadone. Mr. Armstrong, also LI medi- cal doctor, said the normal prii- ccdurc in Hie case of a docu- ment seizure is for the police to immediately turn over tho files to the court. However, in this instance the police kept (he files for -IS liours and did not turn over files until specifically ordered to do so by the court. Craig was arrested and imprisoned for a five-hour pe- riod until his entire bail amount, S152, was paid. The doctor had in his possession at the time uf arrest but was not released until his awyer arrived and contributed the other Mr. Armstrong said. He also noted that current laws slate an individual livim; within a 100-mile radius oi the point of arrest can be on his own recognizance and must return the following day to present the bail money Dr. Craig's lawyer had the order for the file seizure quash- ed and all hut the actual files involved in the case were re- turned. Prior to the return of the files, the court ordered copies :he evening, blowing at a rate of about 30 ra.p.h.
