Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Match LETHBRIDQE HERALD-33 Ex-NHL owner goes to jail Scallen appeal fails VANCOUVER (CP) Tom Scallen, majority owner of Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League, was taken to jail Friday after the British Columbia Appeal Court reduced his sentence to two years but unanimously rejected his appeal against the original conviction. Another appeal is planned. Scallen was originally sen- tenced in April, 1973, by Mr. Justice Harry Mckay of B.C. Supreme Court to four years in prison on charges of theft by. conversion of million and issuing a false prospectus. A jury earlier found him guilty of both charges. The three judges hearing the appeal, which is confined under law to strictly legal matters and not evidence, each rejected the defence points presented by Scallen's lawyer, Allan McEachern. Mr. Mceachern had based the appeal largely on alleged errors in the charge to the jury by Mr. Justice Mckay at the conclusion of the lengthy original trial. Mr Justice H A. Maclean, Mr. Justice E. B. Bull and Mr. Justice M. M. Mcfarlane, who heard the appeal, resumed sit- ting again immediately after upholding the verdict to hear appeal against the original io'ur-year sentence. The three judges were again unanimous in agreeing to lower the sentence. Scallen was charged over events which followed an offering to the public of shares in Northwest Sports Enterprises Ltd., the parent company of the Canucks. Scallen is majority share- holder of Medical Investments Corp. of Minneapolis, which in turn holds a majority interest in Northwest Sports. Scallen was charged with making a prospectus dated Nov. 13, 1970, that he knew to be false in a material particular with the intent to induce the public to purchase shares in Northwest Sports The million theft charge arose when Scallen took money raised by Northwest Sports and transferred it to the use of Medicor, using a bank in California owned by Medicor. Scallen sat in court Friday, After conviction TOM SCALLEN HOBBLES OFF TO JAIL ON CRUTCHES C J EQUIPMENT RENTALS 1410 2ri AVI. S..Litttrihi a pair of crutches by his result of a skiing accident late last listened as the three appeal court judges rejected the appeal in judgments totalling 78 pages. Later, during an adjournment while the judges prepared to hear the appeal against the sentence, Scallen hobbled out to a corridor and talked with Lyman Walters, vice-president of Medicor. An RCMP sergeant hovered nearby. After sentence was reduced, the judges discontinued Scal- len's original bail of ironically raised by Jim Patti- son, who now owns Vancouver Blazers of the rival World Hockey Association. Scallen was taken to cells immediately following the reduction in sentence. Mr. McEachern said he will make a further application for bail and plans to ask for leave to appeal the conviction to the Supreme Court of Canada. Although Scallen is still ma- jority shareholder in the Ca- nucks, he is no longer president of the team. That position was taken by Coley Hall of Vancouver following Scallen's original conviction. The upholding of the con- viction was another chapter in the meteoric rise and equally- speedy fall of Scallen, who first appeared on the Vancouver sports scene in 1969 after local businessmen declined to put up the million required by the NHL as an entrance fee into the league. He was almost unknown in the city, a Minneapolis lawyer who began his financial career as the manager for money contributed by a group of doctors in Minnesota. The company was named Medical Investments, and Scallen's financial legerdemain and expertise soon expanded it into the leisure activities field with purchases of Ice Follies, the successful ice skating show, and the Canucks, the NHL team which plays to capacity crowds in every game. But, just as Scallen reached the f'inacle, he tumbled. Local papers carried almost- daily stories of problems in Medicor. For months Scallen scrambled to find loans in order to preserve ownership of the team, first getting the money from the Capozzi family of Vancouver and Kelowna, B.C., then paying back that loan with another loan from the Bank of B.C., which is still outstanding. A payment on that loan is soon due, posing yet an- other problem for Medicor and Scallen. Dairy policy tragedy' OTTAWA (CP) Govern- ment-approved dairy policy changes that will add between 12 and 15 cents to the cost of a 38-pound box of powdered skim milk were described as a tragedy Friday by the Con- sumers Association of Canada President Maryon Brechin said in an interview that the to Boards of Governors The Honourable Jr-nes L Foster. Minister of Advanced Education, in- vites nominations for the appointment of persons to serve on boards of governors of Alberta Universities and Public Colleges Appointments are nor- mally for a three year period. The following are the institutions, number of vacancies and the effective dates UNIVERSITIES Athabasca University 6 vacancies (effective July 1. 1974) COLLEGES (all effective July 1. 1974) Grande Prairie Regional College 1 vacancy Gram MacEwan Community College (Edmonton) 2 vacancies Medicine Hat College 2 vacancies Mourn Royal College (Calgary) 2 vacancies Nommalions should be accompanied by penmen? information such as nominee's background, qualifications and home address Nominators should include then address also All nomina- tions will remain confidential nominations s-houW be forwarded no later than April 22, 1974 to DepattnwNrt of Advanced Education Room 601 1116O Jasper Avenue Edmonton. Alberta TSK Oil govern'..ent has simply " the wrong move" when it opted to increase retail prices for powdered skim milk. The poorest consumers would be hit the hardest by the increases, which will add about million a year to the total retail costs for butter and milk powder. "There is a limit to how far consumers can go in supporting she said. Roland Pigeon, president of. the Dairy Fanners of Canada, however, described the price increases as inadequate. An increase to from in the guaranteed price for manufacturing milk was not enough to keep fanners in production. Mrs. Brechin said she ques- tioned whether dairy farmers were being as efficient as they could be. And she criticized the current practice of importing large quantities of inexpensive butter and selling it for the going domestic price. Under the' policy changes, butter prices will rise six cents a pound to about 83 cents when the alterations take effect Monday. Mrs. Brechin said that con- sumers have a great deal of sympathy for fanners, but that the dairy product price increases appeared to be unwarranted. "They are just what we don't need now." But Mr. Pigeon said con- sumers should have to pay even more. "If they want to drink milk, eat butter, eat cheese... they will have to pay for it."

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS a.m. Friday, April There's new champ in nicotine stakes OTTAWA (CP) There's a new champ in the low tar and nicotine stakes. The latest federal health department report on tar and nicotine levels in 73 brands of cigarettes identifies Belmont regular filter as the least contaminated. Belmont topples king size menthol filter Viscount from the throne it held in two previous 1973 test reports. In those earlier reports, the Viscount brand had a tar con- tent of three milligrams per cigarette and a nicotine content of 0.4 milligrams. Inexplicably, it shot up to seven milligrams of tar and 0.7 milligrams of nicotine in the latest report. Belmont, with six milligrams of tar and 0.4 milligrams of nicotine, edged out another Viscount size filter without had six milligrams of tar and 0.6 milligrams of nicotine. CAME LAST Loser in the tar-level stakes was Black Cat regular cork which, as in the last published report in December, had 21 milligrams per cigarette. Export regular plain, Marlboro king size filter, Players plain and Sportsman regular plain were close behind with 20 milligrams per cigarette. The cigarette with the highest nicotine was a Maverick king size filter. A Marlboro king size filter was next with 1.4 milligrams. The report says tar and nicotine contain cancer-producing chemicals. As in the last report, Health Minister Marc Lalonde had this advice for hard-core nicotine addicts: Cut down to less than 10 cigarettes a day, don't smoke butts, don't inhale too much and don't leave your cigarette dangling in your mouth between puffs. Alberta farmers' incomes higher EDMONTON (CP) Alberta fanners' cash income increased 32.3 per cent in 1973 compared with 1972 while at the same time grain deliveries declined 10.1 per cent. The provincial bureau of statistics, in a report released Friday, said farm cash income during 1973 totalled billion compared with million in 1972. Shipments of grain from country elevators during the 1973 calendar year totalled 15.5 million bushels compared with 17.2 million bushels in 1972. The statistical report also showed retail trade during 1973 increased 12.9 per cent to an estimated billion from the billion in 1972. The value of crude and synthetic oil sales during the Jan.-Nov. period last year increased 47.2 per cent to almost billion from billion during the same period of 1972. Production increased 20.9 per cent during the 11- month period of 1973. Alberta's population at Oct. 1 last year was estimated at 1.7 million compared with 1.6 million on the same date in 1972 No-commercial plan begins in September TORONTO (CP) The CBC announced Friday it will begin withdrawing commercials from English and French AM radio services beginning Sept. 1. The elimination of commercials, approved by the CBC board of directors after a recommendation by President Laurent Picard, will completed by March 31, 1975. Exceptions to the no commercial policy will be made for some special programs such as the Metropolitan Opera which is available on a sponsored basis. In areas where the CBC radio station is the only or primary outlet the CBC may accept local advertising as part of its community service. The board's decision will have no effect on the CBC's FM service which has always been without commercials.
