(CP) A Kimberly, B.C; mother of three will not lose her widow's pension even if mining com- panies win an appeal before the Workers' Compensation Board, a Cominco Ltd. spokesman said Friday. L. V. S. Meyer said the com- pany will continue to pay a pension to Mrs. Leo Hummel. He said the company "has paid pensions in the past in special circumstances without being ordered to do so and we will in this case." The Mining Association of British Columbia, appealing the WCB decision on behalf of major mining companies, is concerned about the basis on which the pension was granted, rather than the pen- sion itself, hi said Mrs. Hummel's husband died of a heart attack March 20, 1973 after working in a blasting area at the Cominco mine in Salmo, B.C The controversial WCB case hinged on whether the fatal at- tack was brought on the effect of blasting gases and took into consideration Mr Hummel's history of heart trouble. The pension was awarded last Julv. Held at knifepoint Santiago Chamoro, a Spanish worker, holds 12-year-old Edmond Egat at knifepoint outside the boy's home in Sergy-Le-Haut, France. Chamoro called for his dismissal from a factory to be reconsidered. Later he was disarmed and turned over to police. The boy was not injured.
