Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE UTHBRIOGE HERAID Tuesday, March 37, 1973 DAMAGED STATUE RESTORED VATICAN CITY (API dreds of art lovers and tourists crowded into St. Peter's Basil- ica today to see if they could sport a defect in Fief a, Michel- angelo's marble masterpiece now restored after being damag- ed by hammer blows. There doesn't seem to be any. Ten months ago the statue, the only work signed by the Re- naissance master, appeared so damaged that Pope Paul VI, in tears, expressed fear "it will never be the same again." A 34-year-old geologist, Laszlo Toth, an Australian ciSizen of Hungarian birth, climbed over the marble balustrade on May 21 and battered parts of Keta with a dozen hammer blows. The Sladonna's left arm was broken off and her veil and the left side of her face dented, Toth, who screamed, "I am Jesus as he attacked the statue, has been judged in- sane and committed to a men- tal hospital for at least two years. The Vatican's team of inter- national art experts collected some SO broken parts and began the delicate task of gluing them back. A cheerful Pope unveiled it to the public Sunday, declaring: "The incomparable work has been happily restored." Speaking of necks Hiding their heads In the sand is the farthest thing from these ostriches' minds as they enjoy an outing at the Milwaukee County Zoo. They're putting their heads (and necks) together to welcome the warm spring sun. NDP turns down company 4gift9 EDMONTON' (CP) The Al- jerta New Democratic Party has rejected a cash do- nation offer from a corporation after hours of debate by the provincial council, provincial leader Grant Notley said Mon- day.

Roger A. Simpson, 25, -Thom- as Wayne Leffler, 23, Michael J. Leffler, 24, and David Burch Weirich, 34, were remanded in custody until March 28. The men were arrested Fri- day in Southern Alberta as they were driving from Edmonton to the United States border. Further details were unavail- able.

He declined to name the cor- poration which made the offer. PARTY CHANGES Mr. Notley reiterated a call for greater financial support from individual party members. One of the reasons for reject- ing the corporate offer was to allow individual members to participate fully. He said those in high income brackets, such as professors, should be donating or more. In internal party chrrges, Mr. Notley said provincial sec- retary, Bill Dryden, will go to Ottawa as assistant national secretary and Howard Leeson becomes acting provincial sec- retary. Richard Taves will act as Mr. legislative assistant and take charge of a "concen- tration campaign" in areas where the party believes it has good chances to elect members. SUICIDE FOR SCHMIDT The first'such campaign will be in the Calgary Foothills rid- ing to fill the vacancy created by the traffic death last month of telephones minister L e n Worry. No date for the byelection has been set by Premier Peter Lougheed but NDP intends to mount a vigorous campaign to elect an NDP MIA, Mr. Notley said'. Mr. NoUey holds the narty's only seat in the 75-seat egtslature. The NDP leader said it wwild be "suicide" for Werner 'Chmidt, the new leader of the Social Credit Party, to contest the Calgary seat because the riding probably would not be sympathetic to him. Canmore coal outlook brightens CANMORE (CP) Officials of Canmore Mines Ltd. left for Japan for discussions ex- pected to result in five firms resuming the purchase of coal. C. Gregory, Canmore ex- ecutive vice president said there is little doubt that a de- cision will bo reached this week under which the Japanese will honor the 10-year contract sign- ed in 1968. Tlie agreement called for tons of coal to be ship. ped from the mine annually but in April, 1971, the Japanese said they could only take tons a year. This forced a reduction in em- ployment to 65 from 152 and in January this year Mr. Gregory said the mine may be forced to close unless further coa] markets were found. At that time, the future ap- peared bleak but Mr. Gregory said persistence on the com- pany's part and pressuir from provincial and federal govern- ments have resulted in an Im- proved outlook. Production at the mines, ta the mountains 60 miles west of Calgary, is already increasing with 156 positions for miners, oi which 20 have yet to be filled. NEW CONTRACTS Mr. Gregory said Canmore Mines expects to spend more than million over the next two years In anticipation of new contracts with steel firms in Eastern Canada. Most would be spent on heavy equipment that would double the mine's produc- tion to between and 000 tons of coal a year. These eastern markets now are supplied by U.S. coal but Mr. Gregory said Canmore may soon be abfe to compete with U.S. suppliers, "Tho only thing stopping us now are high freight rales." If production is doubled, em- ployment at the mine could in- crease about 325 men. Canmore Mines, part of the U.S.-bascd Dillingham Corpora- tion, owns acres cf coal- producing land and has another acres under lease. Boarder held in murder case P'arrell, 19, was charged yes- terday with non-capital murder in the slaying Saturday of Fred- erico Bortolotto, 82. Mr. Bortolotto was found in Ihe basement of his home, ap- parently beaten to death. Police said Farrcll, remand- ed to April 2, was a boarder at the Bortolotto house. Police have also arrested z 14-year-old boy and said Ire would be appearing in juvenile court.
