Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Dangerous toys suit threatened WASHINGTON (AP) - A consumers' organization threatened today to sue the government if eight toys the organization says can burn, lacerate or electrocute children aren't immediately banned from the United States market. Consumers Union, which does its own product testing, accused the department of health, education and welfare of disregarding its obligations under a new Toy Safety Act. Morris Kaplan, the union's technical director, said parents are going into the Christmas toy-buying season without assurances the toys they choose are safe. The health, education and welfare department issued a statement saying the department had either obtained some modifications of th-a toys Consumers Union cited or was in the process of investigating them. "We have found no compelling reason in the accident reports available to us for declaring any of the toys an imminent hazard," the department said. In a statement prepared for a news conference, Kaplan listed eight toys the union tested and found hazardous. Four of them were identified by the Food and Drag Administration last Friday as toys the agency intends to ban after a 15-day period allowed for public comment. Kaplan noted the 15-day delay will permit the toys to remain on the market well into the Chris tmss-Sfiaspn^ The FDA has~said it would ban Protect 0 Product, a musical toy rattle; Party Pack five fringed balloon squawkers; Jarts, a lawn dart game, and Wasp cap gun. NAMES OTHERS Besides those toys, Consumers Union added Etch-a-Sketch distributed by the same firm which distributes the cap gun; Empire Little Lady oven; Rapco Castright metal casting sets; Suzy Homemaker super grill; and Winnie-the Pooh crib mobile. Kaplan said the national commission, on product safety had branded the Etch-a-Sketch, the toy oven and the metal casting Vulcan wheat king honored for his world hat trick set as dangerous in its final report last June. The commission complained the Etch-a-Sketch had an easily-shattered glass cover plate, The toy oven produced surface temperatures of up to 300 degrees. The casting set not only produced surface temperatures of up to 600 degrees, but also constituted a shock hazard, the commission said. Kaplan said the toy grill also presented a shock hazard and the crib mobile had a bracket which could be easily broken by an eight-month-old infant, leaving jagged points. TORONTO (CP) - Bud Olson, federal minister of agriculture, said today Canadian grain growers must continue to develop new varieties if Canada is to stay competitive in the world grain market. Speaking at the presentation of trophies to the world champions of grain and forage crop competitions at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, Mr. Olson said more attention is placed in Canada today on selling grain, but the production end of the industry still plays an important role. During the ceremony, Harold Hansen of Calgary, who won the world wheat championship for the third consecutive year, was presented1 with a green west- ern-style hat for his "hat trick." Mr. Hansen, who grows pedigreed grain on 1,900 acres near Vulcan, Alta., has competed for the world title six times. His winning variety was Chinook. Other world champions, decided before the fair opened last week, are Floyd Hiner of Lewis-ville, Ind., early corn and soybeans; Tom Rhatigan, Edmonton, oats; Alex J. Blackall and Co., Millhead, Scotland, barley; Frank Hendy, Goodwood, Ont., rye; Don Patterson, Coshocton, Ohio, hay; Gaston Vanraes, Ayl-mer, Ont., tobacco; C. J. Mc-Cullough, Carman, Man., flax; and John Chubey, St. Pierre, Man., pedigreed forage seed. Criticize park scheme JASPER (CP) - Chamber of Commerce officials today criticized a federal government plan unveiled Friday for improved facilities in Jasper, Banff, Yoho and Kootenay national parks. "Frankly there is not anything particularly exciting in the national plan. It is just a rehash of several things discussed in the past - there is nothing really new or radical." Park officials said when the plan was made public that proposals also were being drawn up on development of Jasper and Banff townsites, but they were not ready for release. Chamber president Robert Craig said townsite plans are expeced to indicate what will be and what will not be permitted in the way of commercial and visitor service development, and this is the one "we are waiting for." The proposed master plan for Jasper Park calls for extended hiking trails, doubling the number of campsites and the zoning of the park into five categories ranging from wilderness and service areas to visitor service areas. APPLAUDS IDEA Mr. Craig applauded the proposed doubling _nf campground units. "This is getting into the proper way for visitors to enjoy the park. There has been a growth Court orders TB carrier to hospital for year in the numbers of campers, and we need more camp ground space." The plan also attracted opposition from Banff residents. The national plan would include increased road and highway development in Banff, 70 miles west of Calgary, and would maintain the town as a service centre. It also favors development of roads through wilderness areas of the park. "I think the development arm of the department of northern development is running away with things," Gerrie Wilkie, president of the Banff Bow Valley naturalists said. "They've got to start listening to the experts in ecology." George Leroy, president of the Banff Advisory Coun o. i 1 centred his criticism on plans for the townsite. "I'm disappointed the same philosophy has been maintained toward the townsite - bedroom-space and a service centre," he said. "So many persons coming here will just look at Banff townsite and that will be their impression of the national park . . ." EDMONTON (CP) - A tuberculosis carrier was ordered confined to hospital for one year here by Magistrate John Coughlan after court was told the woman had not co-operated with health authorities for treatment. Two doctors testified th~t the 30-year-old carrier had an opw tuberculosis that was infectious. The woman was diagnosed as a TB victim in 1965, but hadn't attended clinic regularly. Magistrate Coughlan said she may be released within a year if the disease is no longer a public danger.

(AP) - An agreement has been ratified under which $10,000 was offered in full settlement of claims to each of the widows of 78 miners killed in the Farming-ton mine disaster two years ago, Consolidation Coal Co. said Wednesday. Company officials said survivors of 61 of the 78 dead miners had agreed to the proposal, surpassing the 60 Consolidation said must sign before the agreement would be effective. The other 17 widows would not receive payments under the agreement unless they sign it. The funds will be paid in addition to workmen's compensation which the widows have been receiving. The agreement allows Consolidation to resume mining operations in the Consol No. 9 giant underground cavern. The company has said areas of the sprawling mine that con; tain bodies of the men killed in the Nov. 20, 1968 explosions will be closed as permanent memorials. Macnab clan chief dies KILLIN, Scotland (CP) - The funeral was held Wednesday of Archibald Corrie Macnab of Macnab, 84 , 22nd chief of the Clan Macnab and a former civil servant in India. He submitted his claim to leadership of the clan in 1953 and was officially recognized as chief the following year. The 17th chief of the clan, also named Archibald, emigrated to Canada in the 19th century after being forced to sell his estate because of debts. That chief died in Canada in 1860. Since then, there have been several claimants to the chief ship. Archibald Corrie Macnab, who died Friday, was educated at Eton and Balliol College, Oxford. He entered the civil service of India, then controlled by Britain, in 1911. During his 37 years in India, he served as commissioner in various parts of the country. He returned here in 1948. In 1951, the Clan Macnab Association published an outlined history of the family which the late chief had1 compiled. His heir is his great-nephew, James Charles. The funeral service for the late clan leader was held at the parish church in this Perthshire community where he resided.
