Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, November 18, 1977 News in brief Separated hvins tloiiig fine EDMONTON (CP) Only a tiny defect slopped former Siamese hi ins Cynthia and Oirisline from gelling a perfect record in their year-end medi- cal examination Friday. Dr. Reuben Weinberg, who examined the hvins in Edmon- ton, says there may be a lillle concern over a bone protruding slightly in Christine's chest. "Nature may look after the protrusion herself. If not, we'll have to chip away a little of the bone. We'll just wait and see." The Twins were brought to Edmonton from their home in Slave Lake, 100 miles northwest of here, for the examination, 10 months after they were sepa- rated in (he University Hospital and a little more than a year after they were born. At birth the girls were joined at the breastbone. Dr. Weinberg, who has been tlieir pediatrician since birth, said: "Their emotional stale and physical state is excellent. Their scars are OK and well- healed Christine and Cynthia are al- most identical i n height and weigh 18 pounds and are about two feet, four inches tall. Energy board offices sought EDMONTON (CP) provincial government is still trying to persuade the federal government lo move the na- tional iiiergy board offices lo The of mines and minerals, told the legislature yesterday. Replying to a question by Jim Henderson (SC-Wetaski- Mr. Dickie said the government is er.couroginj Calgary's bid to have the ener- AJberta, Bill Dickie, minister I gy board offices located there. Ottawa sees 'obvious problems' TORONTO (CP) Donald Macdonald, federal energy min- ister, said Friday night thai Al- berta's proposal lo raise gas prices lo crstomcrs in oilier provmces and the United Stales "presents some obvious con- stitution problems." iMacdonald said in an Ln- lerview that the federal govern- ment has jurisdiction over mai- lers affecting inleiprovincial trade and will be watching the Alberta situation. Alberta Premier Peter Loug- heed has suggested that the province's natural gas produc- ers raise their rates to custom- ers outside the province and has threatened to halt such sales until this is done. Mr. Macdonald said he was sympathetic to Alberta's claim that gas is under-priced. "However, the federal con- cern is that an adequate supply ol gas is available across Can- ada at a reasonable cost. "If it appears that Alberta Is making an impediment to free trade among the provinces, we'll have to he said. He said lie would meet with Mr. Lougheed soon In an at- tempt to reach some sort of "compromise" in the dispute. E. Kooteuay left out in cold VICTORIA Minister Leo Nim of Briti- ish Columbia said Friday the Alberta government should con- sider adjusting its proposed two-price for natural gas, so there's one price for Canada and one for the United States without a lower price solely for Alljerta. MJ. Nimsick, who represents the Kootenay riding in south- eastern B.C.. said in an inter- view that Columbia Natural Gas in thd East Kootenay dis- trict gets its gas From Alber- ta and he doesn't know if the Alberta plan will affect the East Kootenay price. "They may be able to ab- sorb it, because tlie bulk of their gas goes down to the United said Mr. Nim- sick. He said he feels the East Kootenay is closely related to Alberta and as Canadians, resi- dents there shouldn't be charg- ed a. higher price. Mr. Nimsick said he may make representations later to the Alberta government but will wait for more information on the two-price proposal put for- ward by Alberta Premier Peter Lougheed's conservative gov- ernment. Baldwin lias it figured out GRANDE. PRAIRIE (CP) An alliance between the federal IJberal government and the New Democratic Party could not work for long. Conserva- tive house leader Gerald liald- win, member for Peace River, said Friday. "The vote in Western Canada was a protest vote against Mr. he said in an inter- new. Most of it came to us; i some cajne to the NDP." I Mr. Baldwin said after the NDP leader votes several times for notions put forward by Ihe Liberal party, he will find some of his caucus will desert him and he ill be forced lo vote wilh the Conser- vative party to defeat the prime minister.

Metro governments mulled by Alberta municipal chief EDMONTON (CP) Alberta is looking at regional and met- ropolitan governments as pos- sible solutions lo municipal boundary disputes, Municipal Cholera leads to kilcheu at airport GENEVA (Router) A meal prepared at Bahrain's airport (itchen was the probable source of cholera imported into Aus- talia, New Zealand and Britain earlier this month, the World Health Organization said today. Only economy-class passen- gers were infecled on the Aus- ralian Qantas airline's jumbo- jet flight, wiich arrived in Syd- ney from London Nov. 4 after stopping at Bahrain. They were the only ones to receive the Bahrain-prepared meal. An article in the oigan- ization's latest epidemiological bulletin said the same meal was served on a flight from Sydney to London and was believed to be the source ol infcclion of two cholera cases in Britain. Affairs Minister Dave Hussell said Friday. "I do not believe the way lo effectively control rapid indus- trial and residential growth is necessarily to have the areas involved all come under the jurisdiction of one huge mun- he told delgales to the annual Alberla Association of Municipal Districts and Counties convention. "When I first took the posi- tion of municipal affairs minis- ter, I dismayed at the num- ber of complaints from people wishing to hnp boundaries and change boundaries as solution to the problems they faced with Iheir level of service." He said that acceding to an Edmonton request lo extend its boundaries "would effectively destroy two counties and one municipal dLsLrict.'1 "We have given the bound- j ary disputes question a fair amount of lime and attention, but there are hot spots in province that will require resol- ution prior to that lime when we can establish a municipal boundaries policy. He said the regional govern- ment system used in Ontario and the metropolitan system being adopted by the City of Winnipeg were possible solu- tions. HR also indicated Ihe prov- ince's planning act may be re- I placed. I "We will be publishing a working paper, probably be- fore the end of the year, that will outline the gist of the thinking." Legislation, he said, would probably be introduced at the spring session ol the legislature and given first reading. Foster is firm Law faculty shelved CALGARY (CP) Until Al- berta needs more lawyers, a faculty of law will not be estab- lished at the University ol Cal- gary, Advanced Educ a t i o n Minister Jim Foster said Fri- day. The province has a greater need for para-professionals in the legal field than it does for more lawyers. Mr. Fosler, answering ques- tions from an audience o[ more Strike delays mail TORONTO (CP) The post office said today it could no longer guarantee delivery or pick-up of mail in Toronto be- cause of a wildcat strike ol postal truck drivers. It urged citizens in published advertisements to refrain from mailing until further notice be- cause the main post office is backed up with uncounted mil- lions of pieces of mail. "There just isn't room for any said a spokesman. Air mail service from Toronto has been cancelled until further notice. Street mail boxes have been sealed. All 281 drivers in Ihe city postal truck men who clear the boxes and carry the mail from the central post office to postal branches in the city and the five surrounding out Thursday lo protest delays in contract ne- gotiations. The post office spokesman cs limated that at least bags of containing about pieces of piled in the central post office. Special elforts were being made to "scan" mail for gov- ernment cheques such as family allowance payments due Mon- day so they could get special handling to reach their destina- tions. The post office tried a taxi shuttle service between the main terminal i.nd postal sta- tions for a time Friday, but the system broke down since only five bags of mail could fit in each taxi.

Grant MacEwan Community College in Edmonton has a pro- gram for legal aides and It la the only one in western Canada, he said. Asked why the law society does not promote such a pro- gram for the university, the minister replied: "Lawyers feel some respon- sibility to protect then- own kind and they don't like the idea of para professionals when there are newly graduated lawyers roaming around with- out work." The University of Calgary and the city's legal community have been pressing for a facul- ty of law but have been unable to obtain support from the province. However, the university would be wise to pursue the school of optometry that has been suggested for Western Canada, the minister said. The school could go anywhere in the west but agreements Regiiia students end occupation REGINA (CP) About 150 University of Saskatchewan students ended then- occupa- tion of the office of Edgar Vaughn, dean of arts and science, at noon Friday.

Employees working out of the postal stations and letter car- rier depots could not be paid since their cheques were trap- ped in the mall which could not be delivered due to the strike, he said. Mr. Walker was quoted a s telling the leller earners that cheques would he provided only to I hose who reported for work.
