Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, November 5, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Prison escapee turns self in after 16 years SUDBURY, Ont. (CP) A 46-year-old man who remain- ed at large for 16 years after escaping from prison said Sunday he turned himself in because "the double life final- ly got to me." Andrew Prudhomme es- caped from the Burwash cor- rectional institute just south of Sudbury in September, 1958. He gave himself up to police in Cornwall, Ont., Sept. 6. When he escaped, Prud- homme had 233 days to serve of a one-year sentence. He had been convicted of possession of a firearm and burglary tools. "The double life finally got to he said in an inter- view in Sudbury jail. "I just couldn't run and hide any more. "I was having nightmares, drinking and taking tranquil- lizers by the mouthful." Prudhomme was sentenced last Wednesday by Provincial Judge W. F. Fitzgerald to 3C days for escaping custody. This time will be added to the unserved part of his original sentence. Prudhomme, who grew up in Sturgeon Falls, about 50 miles east of Sudbury, said he could not see his parents after he escaped. "The police were always he said, adding that both parents are now dead. Prudhomme used the name Andrew Fontaine while he re- mained at large. From 1959 to 1969, he said, he lived with a woman in Montreal. They had a child, a girl, in 1961. He said he made his escape in broad daylight, when guards were busy. He rode between two cars of a CNR passenger train and then hopped a freight. He got off at Sioux Lookout, Ont., where he found work in a sawmill.

T5J 2N6 set of rules House grants tax-free JUDITH WARD Mass killer sentenced in Britain WAKEFIELD, England (AP) A 25-year-old English woman was convicted Monday of murdering 12 people by bombing an army bus last February, thus becoming one of Britain's most notorious mass murderers. Judith Teresa Ward, a member of the Irish Republican Army, was sentenced to 12 life prison sentences, to run con- currently, for the murders and 20 years in prison for causing the explosion. Wakefield Crown Court also sentenced her to 10 years for bombing the National Defence College in Buckinghamshire and five years, to run con- currently, for bombing Lon- don's Euston train station. She pleaded not guilty to all charges. The slim, fair-haired woman grabbed the side of the wooden prisoner's dock as the verdicts were announced, but her expression remained un- changed as sentences were passed. Sir George Waller, the jus- tice, made no recommenda- tion for a minimum time Miss Ward should remain in prison because "these offences are so heinous that no figure could be put on that would be appropriate to their gravity." Nine soldiers returning from weekend leave were kill- ed in the bus blast on a highway in Yorkshire in central England. The wife and two children of one of them also were killed. Lakehead churches attacked THUNDER BAY, Ont. (CP) A fire ruined a church vestry during the weekend and a bomb-like device was hurled into another church a few blocks away but did not ex- plode. The fire Sunday after- noon at the Ukrainian Catholic Church of Holy Protection also blew out a window, and "it certainly appears the fire was of an incendiary area fire marshall Max Cooper said Monday after examining the scene. The seven-inch length of pipe containing dynamite thrown through a window of St. Mark's Lutheran Church had no fuse.

EDMONTON (CP) The Stony Plain Municipal Hospital operates ad- ministratively without a local- ly prescribed set of rules, a government ordered inquiry was told Monday. Richard Popp, acting ad- ministrator, the first witness to appear at the inquiry, said the hospital has no set of rules approved by hospital board members, although it is general practice for hospitals to have a book of rules. Such a book now is being prepared, he said. The inquiry follows numerous complaints made against personnel during the last year at the hospital, 20 miles west of Edmonton. Complaints about the hospital became public after a coroner's inquest in April call- ed for an investigation by the College of Physicians and Surgeons into the death of a Spruce Grove man. Eric Bounds who died following a gall bladder operation at the 30 bed hospital last year. When the hospital board resigned June 18, the provin- cial government took control and ordered an inquiry into medical procedures, level of care, and services provided. The inquiry met briefly in August, but was adjourned when Edmonton lawyer John Hill, who is conducting the in- quiry, requested an indepen- dent investigation of the hospital. The report, by four specialists appointed by the Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons, is expected to be presented to the inquiry within a matter of days. Olive Bound has started a civil action against the hospital and the two doctors involved in her husband's operation. A medical college hearing into the practices of the two doctors Dr. Viljean Kritzinger and Dr. S. G. Taletz resulted in a "reprimand" being issued by the college. The college said the doctors "had failed to recognize clinical conditions that required further investigation and treatment before proceeding with the operation" of an unidentified person who died.
