Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 2g THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Tuesday, November 7, 1972 Commercial fishermen fight ban EDMONTON (CP) Alber- ta's commercial fishermen will fight Hie cancellation of Iheir licence lo net as special agent in selling fish in the province, says Jack Bromley, president of" the Provincial Commercial Fisherman's Association. Mr. Bromley said in an inter- view that the Freshwater Fish Marketing Corp. has refused to renew a contract with the asso- ciation. The board feels that the asso- aation is competing with it, said Mr. Bromley.

Passengers walk over ice after ferry freezes fast FORT PROVIDENCE, N.W.T. ICP Passengers walked to shore over thin ice here after the Fort Provi- dence ferry froze fast while crossing Lhc Mackenzie River. Several cars and trucks were still aboard the ferry early Monday, said Ted Horlon of Edmonton, information officer for the territorial government. There was an outside chance the ice would break up suf- ficiently lo allow the ferry to reach shore under its own power. Otherwise, the ice would be broken by hand and Ihe barge pulled to shore. "This sort of tiling has hap- pened said Mr. Hor- ton. The icing conditions were much more severe than ex- pected." The ferry had been expected lo continue operation until about Nov. 15. Until the ferry is restored, or until the ice is thick enough lo support traffic, which Mr. Hor- lon said could he as laic as Christmas, fresh food will have lo be flown lo Yellowknifc and other points north of Fort Prov- idence. The ferry crosses Ihe river about four miles iipriver from Foil Providence, about 500 miles north of Edmonton. Ycl- lowknife is about 1511 miles fur- ther north. Chinese envoy walks out MOSCOW (Renter) The. Chinese ambassador walked out of a Kremlin cc-cmony in pro- test Monday night when a lop Soviet official accused Peking ol "anti-Sovietism" and under- mining Ihe world Communist movement, Chinese sources said.

The Chinese representative left last year's ceremony fol- lowing similar remarks. Earlier, China was reported to have congratulated the So- viet people on Tuesday's anni- versary. Campaign dropped CALGARY (CP) Faculty members at Mount Royal Col- lege have dropped Ihe work-to- nile campaign they started two months ago to back demands for a new contract. Bud Gamble, faculty vice- president, said the campaign "achieved its aim." "We have demonstrated to the administration the costs that could have been avoifcd through settlement of the dis- pulc. The faculty started the cam- paign, using a contract which expired in August for terms of reference, to force the college to sign a new contract. The signing was delayed in a dispute over wages; laculty wanted an 0.5-per-cent increase and the college was willing to give no more than five per cent. During the work-to-nile, Ihe college hired part-time staff at a total cost of a week to provide sufficient instructors. A conciliation hoard now is working on a settlement.
