Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Still a market for family films HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Is there still a market for movies that can be seen by the whole family? Bill Cosby thinks so, Ducks Unlimited joins in study WINNIPEG (CP) - Ducks Unlimited (Canada) has joined an inter - governmental study group investigating effects of low water conditions on the Peace-Athabasca delta area of northern Alberta and Saskatchewan.

The comedian just returned from Phoenix, Ariz., where he starred in his first feature fUm, Man and Boy. His elation over the project was unusual for the cool, calculating Cosby. "I can honestly say that this has been the most stimulating, the best thing I have ever been associated with," he said. "Only one-fifth of the picture has been put together and I am convinced that it is going to be a winner." Cosby plays a former Union cavalryman trying to farm a homesteadinthe turbulent post-Civil War period. Much of the story concerns travels with his son in search of a stolen horse. The actor says he has several other family-oriented stories under consideration.

Get mora out of life - Take the family to a movie Mining firm to cancel option pact VANCOUVER (CP) - Federated Mining Corporation of Vancouver has taken steps to cancel a $7.5 million option agreement giving Canadian Javelin Ltd., and its subsidiary Bison Petroleums and Minerals Ltd., the right to acquire all federated assets through a share exchange. Federated president James Farrell said here a letter was sent last Monday to Javelin's Ottawa office informing them of the decision. Mr. Farrell said Federated directors decided at a meeting here that Canadian Javelin be given notice that a memorandum for an option agreement "dated Oct., 3,1970, be declared void because of a total failure of consideration." He said that under the agreement Canadian Javelin was ra-nt.iirpd to nrovide $300,000 and suTjpJy Federated with development and technical staff to bring Federated's Camsell River pronerty into a profitable operation position. The silver property is situated some 25fl miles northwest of Yellowknife in the North West Territories. Mr. Farrell said Canadian Javelin had failed to live up to these terms and Federated directors reached their decision on the basis of legal advice "from several lawyers." SPARE SHIPYARD WASHINGTON (AP)-President Nixon says he will spare the life of the oldest U.S. government-owned shipyard.

Police wages climb By THE CANADIAN PRESS First-class police constables in many Ontario municipalities became $10,000-a-year men following salary increases this year. The minimum educational requirement for many municipal forces still is only Grade 10 with a 12-week course at the Ontario Police College and further special training. A first-class constable falls in the middle of the salary scale, above other constables and ca dets and below sergeants and inspectors. A $1,700 raise this year for Bradford's first-class constables, bringing their salaries up to $10,300, caused such squawk that Judge R. W. Reville, chair' man of the board of police commissioners, appeared before the city's executive committee to explain. The new salary schedule was not out of line, he said this week. Salaries for first-class constables in Kingston, Kitchener, Gait, Sault Ste. Marie and Peterborough all are in the $10,100 range. Sudbury constables earn $10,787 annually, making them among the highest paid in On tario. London police have ratified a one-year contract giving a 16.7 per-cent increase to ranks up to first-class constables, whose sal ary increased to $10,400 from $8,914. Included in that contract were clauses giving four weeks vacation after 15 years, time-and-a half for overtime and increased clothing allowances for plain clothes officers. Windsor and Metropolitan Toronto police have been unable to reach agreements with their commissions. The next step under law is compulsory .arbitration. A first-class constable in Toronto now earns $10,115 and the force is seeking a 15-per-cent increase for all ranks up to ser geant. The force has about 3,400 men, responsible for 241 square miles. The Windsor Police Association, representing 345 men, has been asking for a 14-per-cent increase for its first-class constables, now paid $10,034. If they get it, they will, earn $11,438. The commission has offered a six-per-cent increase and asked for an arbitration board. YOUR PHILIPS' DEALER WITH SERVICE |A/*lf'C RADIO and TV J AVIV 3 302 13th St. N.

Hank Gray, the city's road maintenance engineer, released the figures Friday and estimated that no more would be spent this year for removal. Sanding and salting probably would cost $150,000 in March and $50,000 in April, depending cm the weather.
