Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, March 21. 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 21 DaUIIno Alberta Arrest warrant issued CALGARY (CP) A warrant was issued Wednesday for the arrest of Jan Lars Sorenson, 25, of Surrey, B.C., when he failed to appear in Alberta Supreme Court for trial in connection with an alleged hijack attempt. Sorenson was arrested last Dec. 12 after someone displayed a knife aboard a Pacific Western Airlines flight from Vancouver to Edmonton and demanded that the plane be flown to France. It was the second time that a warrant was issued for his arrest. He failed to appear in court last Dec. 20 but showed up the next day. He was- committed to stand trial after a preliminary hearing Feb. 4. Heath in danger of being dumped EDWARD HEATH By KEVIN DOYLE LONDON (CP) The corri- dors of Westminster are buzzing with speculation about the future of Edward Heath as restless Conservative backbenchers open an inquiry into their leader's recent political tactics. So far there are no open moves to depose the Tory chief and informed parliamentary observers believe he is still in no immediate danger of being dumped. Newspapers, however, are alive with stories about possible challenges to Heath's leadership following the Conservatives' defeat by the Labor party in the Feb. 28 general election. "Heath's head on the says the Labor- supporting Daily Mirror, adding that there is a widespread belief he may be forced out and replaced by a new man to lead the party into the next election. "Heath for the reads a Guardian headline. But the Liberal-supporting newspaper points out that nobody has yet been found to lead the mutiny against him. MORALE SINKS There seems little doubt that the morale of the Tories is at its lowest ebb in years. Many backbenchers express genuine concern that if Prime Minister Harold Wilson can keep his minority government in power for six months or a year, Labor might then go to the country and be returned with a comfortable majority. If Heath is forced out or re- signs, his most likely successor may be William Whitelaw, who gained wide public acclaim for his activities as secretary for Northern Ireland in the last government, or Robert Carr, a former home secretary. In the past, the Conservatives have been noted for their ruthlessness in getting rid of defeated leaders particularly those who, like Heath, called an election to increase an already safe majority and were defeated instead. Secret camp story confirmed Dead woman identified COCHRANE (CP) Flora Goat, 68, of Morley, Alta., was identified as the woman who was found dead on the Cochrane high school grounds Wednesday. An autopsy to determine the cause of death will be held today, an RCMP spokesman said. Decision on an inquest will depend on results of the autopsy, the spokesman said. Boom may hit education EDMONTON (CP) NDP leader Grant Notley suggests the economic boom Alberta is experiencing could attract students away from going to university. "If a young person can earn or an hour as a welder in the tar sands, he won't be giving any thought to dentistry, the medical profession, even Mr. Notley said during second reading in the legislature of amendments to the Student Finance Act. The amendments would allow the provincial government to write off part of the federal loans taken out by Alberta students. Ginter to file appeal CALGARY (CP) Ben Ginter says he will appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada a ruling by the Alberta Supreme Court which upheld the ceritification of the International Brewery Workers (IBW) as bargaining agent at his Tartan breweries plant in Red Deer.

Brig.-Gen. L. C. Moe Morrison, information director for the forces, said a search and rescue training installation at Eagle River, about 140 miles southeast of Goose Bay, operates as a fishing camp for senior personnel of the Canadian Forces, as well as ranking officers from the United States and Britain. The issue was brought up in the Commons Tuesday when the NDP issued a statement that its defence critic, Doug Rowland Selkirk, would place a series of questions on the Commons order paper about Rail mishap inquiry to be ordered By IAIN HUNTER Herald Ottawa. Bureau OTTAWA Transport Minister Jean Marchand said Tuesday he will order a special inquiry within his department into railway accidents in slide areas following last weekend's accident near Spences Bridge which claimed the lives of two men. But he stated that the department still has not completed a study of a report issued in January by the Canadian Transport Commission critical of CNR and CPR rail safety practices. Mark Rose (NDP-Fraser Valley West) had asked the minister what action he will take to implement the CTC recommendations "and prevent an increase in the rail accidents which is predicted by the commission in the absence of government action." Marchand replied that the accident in B.C. occurred in an area where there had not been slides before. He said his department is continuing to discuss the problem with the CTC. Young people don't go in much for talking. They'd rather be doing. And when they find themselves with nothing to do, they could begin looking for action in the wrong place. Yes, it H important that young people have something constructive to do and that just could be a newspaper route. A route gives them a chance to earn money while they leam the fundamentals of busi- ness. Contact: OrciUtion Dept. PboM 3284411 operation of the camp. Mr. Rowland said information on the camp had been classified confidential and that he had learned about it from private sources. Gen. Morrison said the visitors who use the camp are "mostly, as far as I'm aware, military personnel, although there might be the occasional political deputy defence minister or such." He said the camp operates mainly during the three-week salmon season in the summer. He denied Mr. Rowland's allegation that red carpets and silverware are used for formal dinners at the fishing camp. "He (Mr. Rowland) makes it look better than it he said. "It's pretty rough tents and so forth." The officers who visited got together mainly "for a little fishing and a lot of talk. The usual procedure is to have about five Canadian officers and five guests at one time, Gen. Morrison said. The host officers pay about to the defence department for each guest for a stay of two or three days, he added. He denied that special flights were laid on to bring guests to ihe camp, saying that most arrrived on scheduled flights into Goose Bay. He said all Newfoundland fishing regulations are followed at the camp and denied Mr. Rowland's statement that large numbers of fish are flown to Goose Bay from the camp. "They generally leave with about five fish apiece, I guess." He did say that for some reason which he doesn't know the guest lists at the camp are considered classified information. He said that doesn't mean there has been an effort to keep the operation secret "Maybe we were never asked." QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Cwtiftod DMiUI Mechanic Capitol Funtttura Bldg.
