Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, 15, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Dateline Alberta Families post reward EDMONTON (CP) The families of three men who have been missing since Sept. 22 while on a helicopter flight to Grande Prairie, have posted a reward for in- formation on the men. Iris Penner, wife of Wayne Penner of Red Deer, one of the missing men, said the reward will be paid to whoever finds the men or provides RCMP with informa- tion that will lead to the find. The reward will be paid whether the men Mr. Penner, Mike Haner of Calgary and Gerrit Hildebrandt of Edmonton are dead or alive. Mrs. Penner said it was hoped the offer of a reward would lead to private in- dividuals undertaking ground searches in the area. Parole centre opens CALGARY (CP) prisoners from Calgary's Spy Hill Jail will move from the correctional institution to construction camp like trailers this week as the prison's new day parole centre begins operations. The centre is designed to take prisoners who are allow- ed out of custody during the day to attend classes or work out of the prison environment to which they have had to return to each night. It is the first day parole centre in Alberta. Man killed on road THORHILD, (CP) An in- quest has been ordered into the death of an 84 year old man killed while walking along a road in this com- munity, about 35 miles north of Edmonton. RCMP said John Esinsky of Thorhild was struck by an eastbound car while he was walking down the town's main street. No charges have been laid and a date has not yet been set for the inquest. Robbery-car driver jailed EDMONTON (CP) A man who drove two other peo- ple to the scene of a bank robbery last spring was con- victed of armed robbery in Alberta Supreme Court here. Mr. Justice Neil Primrose sentenced Glen Michael Berehulke, 19, of Edmonton to two years less a day.

SPCA claims dog owner Touching Staff conflicts signed death document EDMONTON (CP) The director of the Alberta Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) said Thursday that George Woodward, a self-proclaimed dog breeder, signed a release form on the understanding that 58 of his dogs would have to be destroyed. Archie Bruce said in an interview that Mr. Woodward, who turned over the dogs to the SPCA after he was evicted from his rented farmhouse in Didsbury, knew the animals were untrained and unfit to be pets. Mr. Woodward has said the SPCA told him the release form was necessary because of transportation regulations. "They weren't said Mr. Bruce of the dogs, most of which were a cross between toy terrier and chihuahua. "They were just wild, biting dogs most difficult to Passing Pat U.S. vice-president designate Nelson Rocke- feller pats Arthur Goldberg on the back as Rocke- feller leaves the witness stand at the hearings of the Senate rules and administration committee Thurs- day in Washington. Goldberg followed Rockefeller to testify at the hearings on Rockefeller's nomination. Reprimand deserved EDMONTON (CP) A technician with the Canadian Wildlife Service who provided provincial NDP leader Grant Notley with information, later denied by the service, said Thursday he deserves a reprimand. A R. Smith said he was told by a friend that between and birds had died on oil soaked ponds of the Syncrude Canada Ltd. oil sands lease in northeastern Alberta and he passed the information on to Mr. Notley. Mr. Notley raised the issue in the legislature Environment Minister Bill Yurko said only 25 birds, at the most, had died. Dr. Douglas Stephen, regional manager of the wildlife service, said dis- ciplinary action would be taken against Mr. Smith and added that the service has no information about birds dying in the area. Mr. Smith said there is no doubt he deserved a repri- mand but did not feel it should be unduly harsh. "I was unaware of any wrong doing (by going to Mr. Mr. Smith said. RALPH DEBONA JR.

They would tear a hand off when you went to touch them." Mr. Woodward had kept a total of 110 dogs and the 52 "good ones had been picked said Mrs. Bruce. The 58 left were "worm- infested, lice-infested, infested with everything you could think of." MORALLY WRONG "It would be morally wrong for the SPCA to foist those 58 dogs onto members of the public whose minds had been trained by the media to think that they would be doing a good piece of missionary work. "I don't mind said the director, referring to criticism levelled at the SPCA for destruction of the dogs. But "we have really been mis- used on this thing." Mr. Woodward's landlord had obtained a Supreme Court of Alberta injunction for his eviction because of allegations that the dogs had ruined the farmhouse about 50 miles northeast of Calgary. Mr. Woodward now is staying in a Salvation Army hostel in Calgary. Mr. Bruce also disputed claims that an Edmonton of- ficial of the SPCA had told Mr. Woodward his dogs would be brought to Edmonton and held until they could be given away. He said the SPCA had not been able to trust Mr. Woodward since 1969, when about 150 dogs he was keeping on rented property near Ed- monton had to be confiscated and destroyed after Mr. Woodward was again ordered to vacate. The 58 dogs were destroyed in a decompression chamber in an SPCA truck, said Mr. Bruce. Oxygen flow to the animals was slowly reduced, rendering them unconscious and killing them within 20 minutes. ruled out EDMONTON (CP) Social workers must not touch a client's genitals or erogeneous zones during counselling, says a new policy announced Thursday by the Ai'ueita Association of Social Workers. The policy is open to revision, subject to sub- missions from association members The policy provides for disciplinary action against a social worker who breaches the ruling. Only well-trained therapists dealing with clients who fully understand the touching method should use physical contact as a tool in counselling, the association said. Such actions as a social worker laying his hand on a client's shoulder can help the healing process, it said. The association recently reprimanded city social worker Jackson Willis for allegedly not properly introducing the physical touch method to a female client undergoing counselling for a sexual problem. affect patient STONY PLAIN (CP) Conflicts between a former director of nursing and her staff at the Municipal Hospital here prevented special care being given to a patient, Dr. Viljoen Kritzinger, former medical chief of staff at the hospital, testified Thursday Speaking at a provincial in- quiry into procedures at the hospital, Dr. Kritzinger said that although nurses were available, a patient was not given special care en a 24 hour basis in November, 1972 "The impression was that there were nurses perfectly willing to help us out but not under the direction of Miss (Victoria) Prottie (nursing director from 1969 to Dr. Kritzinger said. He said the medical staff was concerned about what was considered a rapid tur- nover of nursing staff, although the administration, he said, considered the tur- nover normal. Miss Prottie, he said, had a patient removed from an operating room because there was no assistant available to help wuh tne operation even though one was on the way. The hospital was run by the letter of the law. he said.
