Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta a TH( IETHBRIDGI HERAID _ Mental I now says EDMONTON (CP) The psychiatric director of Medicine Hat General Hospital Friday withdrew most ol (lie oh-jeclions he voiced to the proposed mental health act. Dr. Robert Fairbaim told Ihe annual convention of the Alberta Hospital Association the revised acf presented to the legislature following his speech to the association Thursday left him "a great deal happier with thn act Thursday, he told the delegates the act left too much up to cabinet written regulations and appeared to withdraw from the concept of. decentralizing authority. He also had said there November 4, 1971 icalth at i Dr. Fa little lo guarantee that palients would be treated by qualified therapists because Ihe min ster of health appeared lo have Ihe licensing power. But Friday, Dr. Fairbairn said the revised act indirectly defines who will be qualified therapists bv leaving the to professional organizations and by specifying tlie makeup of the therapist specification board. Dr. Fairbairn said the revised act better protects patient rights by withdrawing a six-month limit on a patient bringing legal action against a therapist or facility. It also withdrew a "no action" clause which deprived the public OK irbairn protection against facility or professional neglect. Meanwhile, a resolution calling for the election of hospital trustees was defeated at the convention. Proponents of the resolution said the choice of trustees should be opened lo the public as is the case with school trustees. Spokesmen ftr large hospitals in Edmonton and Calgary said they would withdraw from tile association if the resolution was passed. They also said a municipality now has the choice of either appointing or electing whale dies VICTORIA (CP) Chimo, llie albino killer whale thai frolicked and performed for the >ayiug customers at Sealand of the Pacific in nearby Oak Bay, is dead. Oak Bay marine officials said Friday the white whale's body was discovered Thursday mom-ing and that experts were carrying out a complete autopsy to find out what caused her unexpected death. Last month an inlcnialiona medical team carried out examinations on Chimo and her companion Haida and tests showed that th ealbino WES suf-'ering from a rare hereditary disease the Chediak High-ashi syndrome. The Disease leaves those suffering from it defenceless in the face of other diseases, making them dangerously susceptible to all infection and illness. An official said Friday it is hoped Chimo's death will provide a breakthrough that will help children smitten with the Chediak Highashi syndrome. Three hundred chillren are known to have the disease, which usually results in death before the age of 14. Chimo and four other killer whales were caught near Race Rocks in Juan De Fuca Strait, March 1, 1970, by a 16-man crew from Sealand. In a prepared statement, manager Rob Raters of l-'rom AIMIEUTEK BELFAST (CP) The pilot of a plane returning from Northern Ireland rapidly reduced height late Friday night to ditch a suspected bomb. British European Airways (BEA) said Bill Lawrence, 30-year-old captain of the four-en-gined Viscount turboprop, then opened a cockpit window and lobbed the "bomb" into the sea. The plane was carrying 71 passengers from Belfast to Glasgow. It was only 20 minutes flying time from Scot-and's biggest city when a stewardess found the suspicious ob- tOSS of Bel jcct on the floor belween the passenger compartment and the pantry. BEA said it was about seven inches long, about half an inch in diameter, slightly bent like a banana and covered with what appeared to be twine beneath a plastic coating. A wire stuck oul from it. Captain Lawrence Lold reporters: "I couldn't identify it. But I thought it could have been a pencil bomb. This is a sensitive service from Belfastr-I wanted to be ultra-safe." PASSENGERS UNAWARE The pilot had to get the plane down to feet before it was safe to open the window bor fast pi cause of cabin pressure. None of the passengers suspected what was going on, BEA said.' A spokesman added: "Captain Lawrence did the wise thing." Three more men have been arrested in Northern Ireland In a security drive against the leadership of the outlawed Irish Republican Army. One ol those arrested Friday was described as a leading member of the IRA Provisional wing's command structure in the Catholic Bogside area of Londonderry. The other two were reported to be officers in the Clonard district of Belfast. The British army has ane rested a large number of leading IRA members in raids during the last few weeks. It la thought that the upper ot the Provisionals have been seriously depleted as a result. In Belfast, British troops on 1 search mission early today discovered 350 pounds of explosives beneath a road In UM Roman Catholic Falls Road district. A military spokesman said the explosives were packed Into two plastic garbage cans placed beneath a manhole. In a nearby playing field the troops Icund a rifle, three magazines and some ammunition. Baldwin tosses legs? political ideals was not tempered by opportunism he would have much more in common supporting Mr. Stanfield. Not that the Progressive Conservatives want the support of Mr. Lewis and his party. Mr. Stanfield, who feels his party will inevitably be swept into a majority position at any election in the immediate future, has said that he would not bend his own philosophy at all to accommodate the NDP. Mr. Baldwin believes both the NDP and the Liberals know they would lose seats in an early election and therefore are bound by this "unholy alliance" out of a need for self preservation. The Conservative parley to be held at Vancouver UNITED NATIONS CP) The General Assembly's economics committee unanimously approved Friday a Canadian proposal for an international conference in Vancouver in September, 1975, to discuss how human settlements affect the environment. The vole on the proposal was 102 lo 0 with 16 abslentions. The Vancouver meeling was among the recommendations of the UN conference on the environment, held earlier this year In Stockholm. Most of the international machinery proposed Pro VANCOUVER (CP) A picket line established by 28 employees of a trucking firm outside the Pacific Press building late Friday night prevented production of this morning's Province. Editor Paddy Sherman left the Province's newsroom shortly after midnight after telling his staff "it's obvious the paper is not going to get out." The Province had planned a 00-page newspaper loday plus comics and a magazine section.

However, it was impossible to get the strike paper rolling witlioul Ihe pressmen. The fate of the evening Sun, with a circulalion ot was nol immediately known. Sun editoria staffers said they planned to finish their shifts, then see what happened later today. The pickets were established by 28 employees of S and P Distributors Ltd., a trucking company which distributes the two daily newspapers in some parts of the Greater Vancouver area.

He suggests that most objective observers would agree that Mr. Stanfield has a far greater social conscience Uian Mr. Trudeau and that If Mr. Lewis had the social conscience of Progressive Con-rvative House Leader Ged Idwin predicted here that 2 minority government of ime Minister Pierre Elliott udeau will not survive longer an "two or three months" ce Parii mer-i is recalled. Ir. Baldwin, veteran MP r Peace River, says Mr. ufeau's Liberal government 1 be defeated on a number of all matters which on was killed struck by a car at about 6 p.m. Friday on Highway 1-A, 10 miles west of here Cochranc is alraut 20 miles west of Calgary. Identification of the victim and further details were withheld by recount major issue will come up d the govemmenl will fall. M lhat point, says Mr. Bald-n, the. prime minisler will vp onp of two Ask the governor-general (CP) The has a general Victoria and also meeting was dissove Parliament and call e new election. Or ask that Mr. Stanfield attempt to form a new government. Mr. Baldwin predicts the latter course of action, and suggests that a Progressive Conservative minority government wrtuld perhaps stay In office for anoUier year before going to the people. Whatever happens, says the Alberta MP, Mr. Trudeau's po-litica career is finished and is that of New Democratic Party leader David Lewis. Mr. Baldwin describes the New Democratic Party's support of the Trudeau minority government as an "unholy alliance" that helps to show Mr. Lewis has the same "intellectual arrogance" as that of the prime minister. The PC House leader contends that Mr. Lewis is supporting the Liberal government for two main the NDP can't finance another election campaign in the near future and Mr. Lewis knows that in another run-off election the socialists would lose scats. At the same time, Mr. count of federal election results in Selkirk constituency, completed Friday night, gave New Democrat Doug Rowland a margin of only 13 votes over a Progressive Conservative opponent. Because of the narrow margin, a judicial recount Is required automatically. 'The official count gave Mr. Rowland 18, 46 votes compared with 18.033 for Conservative candidale Dean Whiteway. Liberal and Social Credit candidates were well behind. Election night figures gave votes to Mr. Rowland, who first entered the Commons in a 1970 byelection, and to Mr. Whiteway. Constituency Returning Officer Grant Del Bigio laler said a re-tally of returns reduced Mr. Rowland's margin to 55, and the edge grew even thinner with the official count. Mr. Del Bigio said he plans to meet Monday with County Court Judge Benjamin Hewak to set a date for the judicial recount. Mr. Del Bigio. said there were I.S75 rejected so. It is based partially on the concept that the tide of public support and opinion is running in the Conservatives' favor and nothing that can be seen on the horizon can halt it. The Liberal government will be defeated on a major vote ol confidence in the House o[ Commons within two or three months of Parliament's resumption. Mr. Trudeau will recommend handing over power to Mr. St airfield. The Liberals will hold a leadership convention at which Mr Trudeau will be replaced, possi Ijly by Finance Minister John Turner. Mr. Turner, says Mr. Baldwin, is already sharpening up liis axe ready to perform a hatchet job on Mr. Trudeau. The Conservative leader will bring in a package of the same things he has been urging throughout the election campaign and for months and try to get some of it passed. Perhaps about one year from now or one and one half at the Mr. Stanfield will fee thai the public will have had a chance In assess his policies. He'll then call a new federal election. At that time the Conservative sweep will occur bringing them into Parliament with perhaps 140 seals. Mr. Baldwin doesn't see the necessity of a mammoth majority, believing it can do more harm than good to a party in the long Sealand president Bob Wright, said Chimo has been offered to Dr. Bristol Foster, director of the provincial museum, for display. by the committee Thursday. Among the 16 members abstaining Friday was the Soviet Union, which led most Eastern European countries in boycotting the Stockholm conference because of the exclusion of East Germany The proposals approved by the economic committee still require endorsement from the full General Assembly, but are expected to face little trouble there. It is not yet known how many countries will attend the Vancouver conference, but Canadian sources said earlier as many as 80 nations might be killed by smoke inhalation EDMONTON (CP) A 23-year-old man died of smoke inhalation early loday after fire broke out in a building close to downtown.
