Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thurtday, March LETHBRIDOE HERALD-31 Oh! For a camel Edward Ellis, a Lebanese, carries fuel to his automobile, which ran dry near North Adams, Mass. He was leaving North Adams State College, where he spoke on the Middle East to a geography class, when he developed a gasoline shortage of his own. Indians claiming portions of prime Edmonton property EDMONTON (CP) Sections of prime Edmonton commercial, industrial and residential land are being claimed by the Enoch Indian band under terms of and 1908 treaties, it was revealed Wednesday A band spokesman said the claim will total "in the Cargo door latch plate 'left off WASHINGTON (AP) Executives of McDonnell- Douglas Corp. said today the firm has been unable to explain satisfactorily why a key modification was not made on the Turkish Airlines DC-10 jumbo jetliner that crashed near Paris earlier this month. John Bnzendine, president of Douglas Aircraft, told a Senate aviation subcommittee the company is continuing to investigate why the modification, a small plate on a cargo door latching mechanism, was left off the aircraft when other rec- ommended changes had been made. Safety experts have testified they believe the crash, which killed 346 persons in aviation's worst disaster, was caused when the rear cargo door blew off in flight because it was im- properly closed. That caused explosive decompression in the plane, buckling the cabin floor and damaging critical control cables running to the rear of the plane. Brizendine said the company is determined to find out why the modification was not made. He said company personnel involved in the inspections were taken off the job while company security officers try to find out what happened. Nevertheless. Brizendine told the senators that if the door had been properly closed when it took off from Paris on March 3. the crash might not have occurred. MODIFIED AFTER CRASH He said one other DC-10 sold to Laker Airlines in Britain also lacked the critical modification, but added that the change was made after the Paris crash Company officials testified that they acted promptly in 1972 to make modifications on the plane when an American Airlines jumbo jet made an emergency lading at Detroit after suffering depressurization when the rear cargo door blew off in night over Windsor, Onl The Federal Aviation Administration in what has been described as a gentlemen's agreement with the company, issued bulletins calling for two changes on the door. Those changes were accomplished within less than "two weeks. Brizendine said. millions of dollars" and is based on provisions in the treaties that land surrendered for roads will revert to the band if used for other purposes. The road-allowance claim, if upheld, would set a precedent for many other Indian land claims in Alberta. More than 200 Indian land surrenders were completed using the same guidelines. MosXpf the land inside the city and parts outside originally surveyed for roads with 66-foot right-of-ways now is otherwise used. In the earlieet land surrender, the Indians gave- up the 40-square-mile Papaschase reserve which encompasses most of Ed- monton south of the North Saskatchewan River. Later surrenders released other lands part of or adjacent to the current city limits, in- cluding all land west of 170th St. The first public disclosure of the Enoch claim came at a meeting on the reserve Tuesday between band officials and representatives of the city The band's land development officer, Cliff Sim. told city officials the band has an almost-forgotten reserve in the centre of the city. The 1 4-acre reserve is lo- cated at 50 Avenue along rail- way tracks near 103 Street. The site was once surveyed for road use but reverted to the band when it was used for other purposes. Mr. Sim said Edmonton property owners have nothing to fear from the claim. He said any settlement resulting from the two-years of extensive research will come from federal and provincial governments. He said although the city will be included in discussions of the band claim, the city can't be blamed for errors committed by the two senior levels of government Chief Raymond Cardinal told the meeting the band wants to be fair "because we know we have to live with the city. Whatever is fair we will agree to." Foremost among the city's concerns is the claim by the band on the city's new water treatment plant site by the North Saskatchewan River. City solicitor H. F. Wilson said the city is prepared to make a reasonable settlement with the band "on the assump- tion the land belongs to the band The new plant is to supply water to the city's northwestern section and any delay in calling of tenders could result in summer-long water rationing next summer, he said The Enoch band wanted to trade any agreement for an extension of water and sewer facilities to the reserve, bat the city officials said they were not authorized to make any agreements.
