Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, March 30, 1971 - THI IETHMIDOI HUAID - 13 Edmonton plant cuts 40 TAKING NO CHANCES - Motorists In downtown Ottawa were taking no chances and continued to deposit money in this parking meter, even though it was lying on the sidewalk after having been snapped off at the base. Ottawa might withdraw offer for Home Oil EDMONTON (CP) - North-T west Industries Ltd. Friday announced that because of the uncertainty surrounding the future of the Lockheed Aircraft Corp'a L-1011 Tri - Star jet aircraft, it has laid off 40 of its 380 employees. .The firm, in a prepared statement, said it was "an interim move to protect the company's interest and maintain employment at the highest level possible under the present circumstances." The Edmonton firm is making floor, bulkhead and landing components for the Lockheed aircraft under a $28 million contract. The L-1011 originally was scheduled to be placed in commercial service later this year but its future is in doubt because of the financial problems encountered by Rolls-Royce Ltd. of Britain which has the contract for the RB-211 engine designed to be used in the Tri-Star. Northwest Industries said future employment levels will be "determined by the outcome of negotiations now being undertaken" by Lockheed with the United States and United Kingdom governments, Rolls-Royce and the airlines which have ordered the aircraft. "Meanwhile, the production of components will continue," the Northwest spokesman said. Premier Strom speaks briefly to jobless OTTAWA (CP) - Energy Minister J. J. Greene said today the government would withdraw its offer to buy control of Home Oil Co. of Calgary unless agreement on terms is reached soon. Negotiations for a government purchase, announced publicly eight days ago, are continuing. But Mr. Greene told reporters outside the Commons that the offer might be withdrawn, "because I don't think it is in the public interest to have offers hanging in the air indefinitely." The government offer, terms of which are secret, are for controlling interest in Cygnus Corp., the holding company through which Home Oil Presi- dent R. A. Brown of Calgary exercises effective control of the petroleum firm. Mr. Green was asked whether a withdrawal of the government offer would mean Mr. Brown would turn back again to Ashland Oil Co. of Kentucky, the firm that was negotiating with Mr. Brown until last month. The minister replied no. Mr. Brown could-turn to potential private Canadian buyers again. He added there are many Canadian companies inter e s t e d but no offer has been satisfactory to Mr. Brown so far.

Those negotiations were understood to have foundered on disagreement over future management of cash-short Home Oil. When asked whether the government offer would be withdrawn by next week if terms were not agreed, Mr. Greene said "you can assume anything you like." Human error main factor in fire deaths EDMONTON (CP) - Human error was the main factor in the accidental death of 18 Alfoertans killed by fire to March 15 this year, says Alberta fire commissioner A. E. Bridges. "Misuse of gasoline was involved in 16 of the reported cases," he said in a prepared statement. "A combination of cigarette smoking and intoxication combined in 13 other incidents." As well as the fatalities, 28 persons were taken to hospital with burns. Polio epidemic STAPHORST (Reuter) - The municipal council of this polio-stricken Calvanist Dutch town today appealed to all parents to have their children inoculated. Three children have died in the epidemic, blamed partly on the reluctance of many of the town's 10,700 inhabitants to undergo inoculation, and a total of 30 cases compares with Holland's country-wide average of eight a year.

EDMONTON (CP) - The provincial government, in its efforts to relieve unemployment, is looking into programs that can be rapidly implemented and which require a high labor content, Premier Harry Strom told representatives of the Alberta Federation of Labor. The premier spoke briefly to about 125 persons on the steps of the legislature. The group earlier had marched through the downtown area in support of a brief being presented to the cabinet by the federation, About 300 persons took part in the march which finished before the meeting between the cabinet and the federation representatives. Many of the marchers, deterred by near-freezing temperatures and slight winds in front of the house, had left before the premier, Labor Minister Ray Reierson and federation president Roy Jamba came out to speak. Mr. Jamba told the group he was encouraged by the reception of the brief, which recommended that the government draft emergency legislation to help stimulate the economy and help relieve "the crisis in unemployment." Following the meeting, the premier said the government would give careful study to the federation's brief, which criticizes proposed government reductions in public spending as "regressive." Tories trail in U.K. poll LONDON (AP) - A Gallup poll today showed the Labor party 12 percentage points ahead of the Conservative government in popularity. This was an increase of 4.5 points in the last month. Gallup said the government's popularity had been hit by the unsettled economic outlook and rising unemployment. With "don't knows" excluded, 50.5 per cent said they would vote Labor, 38.5 per cent Conservative, eight per cent Liberal and three per cent others. Last month's figures were 49 per cent Labor, 41.5 per cent Conservative, eight per cent Liberal and 1.5 per cent others. The poll was published by The Daily Telegraph.
