Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDOE HERA1D Tuesday, May Mi, 1972 Nature park urged in Suffield area Medicine Hal CALGARY (LTi-A Univer- sity ot Calgary gradualc slud- dent wants to establish a Can- adian nature preserve in Ihe Snffielri military area near Medicine Hnl. Carl Norbcck, formerly a gc- oligist, says the area could be called tlic Great Plains Na- tional Preserve and could be created using lands now largely out of bounds [or military use. British troops are scheduled to begin tank training exercises on the 1.000-square-milc mili- tary reserve early nest month. About 200 square miles along the South Saskatchewan River IprCSCUlS have been marked out of bounds for ecological reasons. 51 MILLION REVENUE Mr. Norbeck says the nature should remain essentially readier-, while some hikinc trails would be built and the would be used as a water highway. Economic studies show tour- ist use of the park could event- ually generate annual revenue of 51 million for southern AI- berb, he said. In addition to protecting en- dangered species such as pold- L'n eagles, prairie falcons anrt pigeon hawks, Hie preserve would be a home lor an abun- dance of other animals up- land birds and waterfowl. Norbeck has completed a master's degree on Ihe na- ture preserve proposal for a university program on re- sources, environment and plan- ning. 10-cent Turned JOHN TURNER MEDICINE HAT CCPl-The Medicine Hat College drama department is presenting a Canadian play.

Mr. Speaker sajd the first question had been out of order. However he allowed a second question. Delighted with a second occa- sion provided him Mr. Hees asked, "Docs the finance minis- ter realize that his increase is less than half the increase given by 'six buck Harris' In 1957? We ail know what happened fo that minister and that Liberal gov- ernment at that time." Finance Minister Walter Harris was a member of prime minister Louis St. Laurent's cabinet which introduced a six dollar raise in the old age pen- sion just prior to the 1957 gen- oral election. The "six buck Harris" lag was attached to Mr. Harris and the government in the election campaign which saw the government defeated by John Diefenbaker and the Con- servatives. clears wav tells grim story V.'ASHTXGTOX CAP) A sur- vivor cf llne cnrlicr tliis ir.o.ifh fit (Iifl silver at (hat 91 men said Monday he had never been instructed on vSUMMER IS :ON ITS CHOOSE FROM IN-DASH CUSTOM UNITS for 1971-72 by A.R.A.

Frank McKee. director of the union in the Western states, charged the Sunshine Mining Co. with a "most callous riisrc gard for even the most basic protection of its employees.'1 McKee also accused the U.S. Bureau of Mines of refusing to co-operate with union officials on mine safety. "I could better characterize the co-operation as he charged, "and an attempt not to investigate but to bury the disaster with the dead."

Break for freedom fails after whipping ordered HAMILTON (CP) A 16- ycar-old youth who had just been sentenced to penitentiary and a whipping hurdled out of the prisoners' box in a desper- ate atlempt to escape from provincial court Monday. Sobbing and helling obsceni- ties, the youth, Frank Wal- ters, struggled with police who tackled him brought him to Ihe floor just as he reached the courtroom door. "I will kill you, you ani- mals, let me yelled Wal- lers. "Why don't you leave me alone, I will kill myself." Walters's break for freedom came just after Judge Ross Bennett had sentenced him to 10 strokes of the whip, pri- marily because of the violence the youth used in robbing a 35-year-old Hamilton man.

REVELSTOKE, B.C. lie city of Revelstoke has urged the federal government o take steps to ensure that Kootenay coal is shipped lo the coast by an all-Canadian route. Shipment of Ihe coal via the Kootenay and Elk Railway and through the U.S. would com- pound Canada's problems of high unemployment and for- eign domination of the econo- my, the city says in a submis- sion to the government. The Supreme Court of Can- ada recently quashed a de- cision of the Canadian Trans- port Commission barred ment now is reviewing the mat- ter. Revelstoke said the shipping of coal via a foreign railway would endanger many Cana- dian jobs. These include CP Rail employees in B.C. and workers involved in the manu- facture of locomotives in Que- bec and Ontario and rolling stock in Nova Scotia, the city added. Judpe Ermictt ordered the whipping for Walters after hearing that he Ftruck Jolui McLaughlin over Ihe head two or three times with a piece of wood and fired a pellet pun at another man, grazing him. The judge ordered that five of strokes be given wilhin 30 days of Walters's admis- sion to penitentiary and five within the 30 days prior to lu's release.
