Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID - Thursday, March 18, 1971 ---. Companies to defend lake pollution charges WINNIPEG (CP) - Two companies, charged under Manitoba law with polluting Lake Winnipeg, have filed statements of defence in court of Queen's Bench, claiming the province acted beyond its jurisdiction in suing them. Manitoba launched the suit against Dryden Chemicals Ltd. Off-track bets await Ottawa OK EDMONTON (CP) - Off-track betting will become legal in Alberta only after formal approval has' been granted in this area by the federal government, Alberta Attorney-General Edgar Gerhart said Tuesday. Parents call off boycott SEBA BEACH, Alta. (CP) -Student at Seba Beach School should be back in classes today after a decision by their parents to call off a boycott of the school. H. M. Grande, spokesman for the committee of Concerned Parents and Rate Payers, said the decision was made at the reque t of the Parkland school district, which has agreed to meet with the parents' group Thursday. About 75 per cent of the 450 students at the Seba Beach School missed classes Monday and Tuesday to protest an agreement whereby about 130 high school studets would go to a new high school in Evans-burg, about 10 miles away. Seba Beach is about 45 miles west of Edmonton. Baby used as hostage for kidnap PARIS (Reuter) Gunmen used a baby as a hostage and kidnapped an auto salesman in two separate incidents in France today, as a rash of hostage-style attacks spread across the country. In an attack on a Paris suburban bank, one of three gangsters snatched the baby from its mother's arms and put a pistol to its neck to force bank staff to hand over the equivalent of $1,080. They handed back the baby unharmed and fled. A few hours later two armed gangsters in the eastern city of Grenoble approached the car salesman and forced him to get into his car with them. The gangsters drove off with the salesman but were stopped at a police roadblock where a gun duel broke out. One of the gangsters was wounded and captured. The other escaped. The car salesman was slightly injured. The incidents followed bank robberies in southern France on Monday and Tuesday in which gunmen drove a total of six hostages away with them from the crime scenes.

Off - t r a c k - betting establishments have been approved in principle, he said. But Alberta must have assurance that the federal agriculture department will impose controls of the same type that now exist over racing meets. Mr. Gerhart said he hoped off-track betting shops can be in operation in Alberta this spring as they are a deterrent to illegal operators. Speaking in response to a question by Don Getty (PC - Strathcona West), Mr. Gerhart said many persons have misunderstood or misinterpreted some previous statements. Previous1 cases tried under the Criminal Code now are being appealed before the Supreme Court of Canada, he said. There is reason to believe that existing amendments to the Criminal Code provide latitude for off-track betting, but the Alberta government will not authorize them until formal approval is received from the federal government. of Dryden, Ont., and Interpro-vincial Co-Operatives Ltd. of Saskatoon last December. The companies face injunctions and damage claims by the province in excess of $2 million. Lake Winnipeg's commercial fishing industry was closed last April and sports fishermen were warned not to eat any fish caught in the lake because of mercury contamination. The province claimed that mercury pollution came from the two plants and that because of it, the province had to pay $2 million to the 1,590 who earned their living in Lake Winnipeg's commercial fishing industry. The provincial legislation covering the mercury pollution allows the fishermen to assign their suing rights' to the government. The same legislation also provided the compensation to the fishermen. Both companies, in separate statements, claim that the legislation is outside the power of the province to enact, and that in any case it cannot apply to the two companies whose businesses are outside the province. The act, both declare, encroaches on the powers of parliament and the British North America Act. Other defences advanced by the two companies, which ask that the actions he dismissed with costs against the province, declare that any damage that arose was entirely and solely from natural causes and that provincial agencies may have contributed to the pollution. The Saskatoon company in its statement further alleges' that the province itself is using such things as mercury fungicides in its fish hatcheries and that there are storage places for mercury in the city of Winnipeg. Oddities in the neivs LONDON (AP) - Scrap metal king Peter Wood got up early Tuesday to dress for an appearance at Buckingham Palace, tripped over a pair of shoes and broke his ankle. Undaunted, the 52-year-old magnate had a cast put on and with his family drove in a Rolls Royce from their home in Doncaster to London. The family arrived at a Park Lane hotel, and the Rolls burst into flame. Wood borrowed another Rolls from a friend and the family arrived in time for the ceremonies at which the Queen was to make Wood a Commander of the British Empire for his service to industry. When Wood's turn came, he hobbled forward on a crutch and made a proper bow. "What did you do to your foot?" the Queen asked. "I tripped over some shoes," he replied. The Queen smiled. "She was very kind," Wood said later. LOS ANGELES (AP) -Henry Huang is followed to class at Occidental College by a duck. The duck, an adolescent mallard named Duckmauser, thinks Huang is her father. And where daddy goes it likes to follow. It began last December when the duck hatched at Occidental's biology centre. "After she hatched, I put her down on the floor and she followed me," says Huang. "That was four months ago and she still does-most of the time." Duckmauser, which in German means "pipsqueak," got the idea of Huang's parenthood through a process called imprinting-ducks and other communal birds tend to asso- QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg. tm PHONE 328-7684 �� date the first moving object they see as their parents. DES MOINES (Reuter) - A Des Moines motel owner accused of violating a 58-year-old Iowa law by not ironing permanent-pressed sheets used in his guest rooms was found innocent by a jury Tuesday. The Iowa department of agriculture had filed a charge after a guest at the Ramada Inn complained that the sheets in his room had not been ironed. .The hotel contended the permanent-press sheets used are "ironed" in compliance with the Iowa law by process of washing and tumble-drying. The state contended the law required the sheets be processed with a heated device other than tumble-drying. Conviction could have brought a fine of $100. Churchill's granddaughter raps NATO . NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Arabella Churchill, 21-year-old granddaughter of Sir Winston, has bowed out as queen of the annual Azalea Festival April 20-25 honoring the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. She says she thinks NATO is not only unnecessary but a threat to peace. In a letter to festival officials made public Tuesday, Miss Churchill said; "I realize that when NATO was formed after World War II there probably was a need for such an organization. But now, with the increasing advances in science and technology, the situation is growing out of hand. "The gathering together of such masses of weapons surely negates the possibility of peaceful coexistence." LOOK!
