Monday, November 18, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Dateline Alberta Representation wanted EDMONTON (CP) Hospital auxiliary groups want more representation on nospital boards, delegates to the Alberta Hospital Associa- tion have been told. Lorraine Morris, president of the Alberta Hospital Aux- iliaries Association, said that if auxiliary groups are ex- iected to continue their .raditional role of raising unds and doing volunteer work, they must be involved in more aspects of planning. More volunteers are needed to fill roles in a rapidly-ex- panding health care system in the province, and "we are getting more hospitals af- filiated all the time." Mrs. Morris said later. But despite the increase in involvement expected of aux- iliary groups, they have only 16 representatives on hospital boards throughout the province, she said. Pollution study set EDMONTON (CP) A Uudy of air pollution over Ed- monton will be undertaken during the next three weeks to ather information about the atmosphere, particularly the oncentration of carbon nonoxide and nitrogen ox- ides. Bill Yurko. provincial En- 'ironment Minister, announc- ed the study, saying his department was developing a method of predicting future air quality in Calgary and Ed- monton under various con- ditions. The ability to forecast air quality conditions would be useful for locating roads, in- dustrial parks and sub- divisions in the future. Big cities popular9 CALGARY (CP) The irovincial government is doomed to failure in its attempts to lure the bulk of uture industrial and popula- .ion growth from major cities nto smaller centres, the of the Urban Development Institute of Liberia says. Bruce Lawrence told the Toup's annual meeting the government's decentralization policy will fail "simply because most Albertans want to live in cities the size of Edmonton and Calgary." "And where the people go, labor hungry industry is sure to follow." In an interview later, Mr. Lawrence said most Alber- tans want the advantages of large cities hospitals, better schools, and more cultural facilities such as live theatre and libraries. technically guilty CALGARY (CP) Drivers who are highly intoxicated when they endorse the results )f breath analysis tests are technically not guilty of drunken driving, a provincial :ourt judge says. "The accused must be aware of what documents are being served on him and the nature of them" when he signs the police certificate showing the analysis. Judge Brian C. Stevenson told a court hearing.

Indians not after Quebec-style settlement I VANCOUVER (CP) The million settlement with the natives of Northern Quebec is not the kind of thing their British Columbia counterparts are after, an ex- pert on B.C. native land claims says Philip Paul, land claims researcher for the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs, said he would reject an offer phrased in similar terms if one were made to natives in this province The Quebec agreement, to which both federal and provin- cial governments are parties, will give the Indians million in compensation plus Manpower shortage VICTORIA (CP) A British Columbia police of- ficial says the province's police manpower shortage has become so serious it would take 1.758 more policemen just to achieve the national average. Dr. John Hogarth, chairman of the B.C. Police Com- mission, has called the shor- tage critical. royalties in the future from hydro electric developments in the James Bay area. The Cree Indians will also get a reserve and exclusive fishing and hunting rights to a square-mile area. In exchange, the natives will drop their claims to aboriginal title to the James Bay land "My initial gut reaction is that I find it difficult to feel good about Mr. Paul said of the Quebec settlement. "When you examine it, it has the flavor of the beads and blankets philosophy behind it. There's a bit more money maybe, but the same underly- ing principles. "They (the governments) don't understand the Indian people and their relationship to land. What they've done is to admit, in a way, that land is a commodity. "There's something very important there. The underly- ing philosophy responsible for this settlement certainly can't be the basis for Mr. Paul said.

Budget will be softer on MEDICINE HAT (CP) Alberta Liberal leader Nick Taylor said Saturday he has received indications the federal government will "soften" its controversial oil royalty taxation plan in the budget tonight Mr. Taylor told a news conference he received the in- dications in recent conver- sations with Prime Minister Trudeau, Finance Minister John Turner and Energy Minister Donald Macdonald Under the resource taxation plan outlined in the defeated federal budget May 8, oil com- panies no longer could write off provincial oil royalty payments for federal tax pur- poses. Shopcraft employees will vote VANCOUVER (CP) British Columbia railway shopcraft employees will vote Tuesday on which unions they wish to represent them in their stalled negotiations for a new contract with the com- pany. The 550 workers will be given a choice between the independent Canadian Union of Transportation Emplovees (CUTE) and maintaining their current representation by an association of five inter- national unions CUTE applied Aug. 30 to represent workers in three of the unions, but the B.C. Labor Relations Board ordered a certification vote to be held among all shopcraft workers. The issue has disrupted contract negotiations since the unions' previous agree- ment expired Oct. 31. When workers went out on strike to back their wage demands, (hey were ordered back on the job by the labor relations board under section 51 of the Provincial Labor Code The section declares a walkout illegal if an applica- tion for certification is pending which will affect the sinking employees The international unions confident of victory in the forthcoming vote, have said they will call a slnkc as soon as the balloting is completed Polling stations will be ?et up near the BCR's main depots in the province at North Vancouver.

Prince George and Knrl SI lofm Taylor said he has not been told exactly what changes are planned, "bu it appears there will be some kind of modifica- tion that will leave room for the provincial government to still make a great deal of money." Grass-fed cattle just as tasty CALGARY (CP) Beef prices could be cut by half if consumers stopped believing the myth that expensive grain-fed cattle provide better steak than grass- fed animals, Hu Harries of Edmonton, a business consultant and former Liberal MP said Satur- day "There is a magnifi- cent deception going on." he said in an inter- view after an address to the 16th annual meeting of the Urban Develop- ment Institute of Alber- ta. "Meat packers and food stores have stuck with this fetish of grain- fed meat. But grass-fed beef is excellent and most people would not know the difference." Dr. Harries said much grass-fed cattle could sell for 50 cents a pound Most beef in stores costs or more Dr Harries said a major switch to grass fed beef by cattlemen would lower domestic beef prices while free- ing huge volumes of gram for shipment" to starving people around the world He said the federal ministers indicated they are not primarily interested in getting the money from natural resource development "What they are mainly concerned about is making sure the companies that make money out of natural resource development have the right to re-invest that money anywhere in Canada." Mr. Taylor said he personal- ly would be satisfied with a resource taxation system that gave the provincial govern- ment slightly more money because the government owns the resource. He doubted, however, that such an agreement would satisfy Premier Lougheed. whom he accused of taking "an almost separatist" posi- tion on resource taxation. "Mr. Lougheed is taking a completely unreasonable posi- tion when he insists that every dollar made in resource development either stay in the Alberta treasury or be re- invested in Alberta. "If everybody follows this example, we would soon wind up with 10 republics that would do little more than get together under a loose confederation and salute the flag once a year The Liberal leader said it is possible Premier Lougheed will use the oil royalty issue to call a snap provincial election. "Mr. Lougheed clearly believes it is in his political interest to preserve his image as the knight in white armor leading the provincial forces against the federal octopus."
