Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD Saturday, November 23, 1974 Antifreeze cost doubles in Lethbridge By AL SCARTH Herald Staff Writer Antifreeze prices have doubled in the city since last winter, At least two major depart- ment stores have imposed quotas on sale of the product while some service station operators are restricting sales to steady customers. But both dealers and the provincial department of con- sumer affairs say there is no serious shortage and that prices will level off or even Jumbo jet flaps not in position COLOGNE (Reuter) The West German airline Lufthansa said Friday that the wing flaps on its Boeing 747 Jumbo jet liner which crashed in Nairobi, Kenya. Wednesday- were not all in position for takeoff. An official airline spokesman said the commis- sion investigating the crash found that the flaps on the front edge of the 747's wings were fully retracted. The giant plane crashed from a height of 100 feet short- ly after taking off, killing 59 passengers and crew. Ninety- eight people survived in the first-ever fatal crash of a 747. The flaps on the back edge of the wing were properly ex- tended in the correct take-off position. Lufthansa said, but the front edge flaps were not. This would explain why the plane was able to rise into the air but had not enough lift to keep climbing. BRIDGE RUG DRAPES LTD. FREE ESTIMATES Phone 329-4722 COLLEGE MALL WINTER GAMES And YOU!

The careful shopper can find the product for less than a Herald sur- vey of 25 sales outlets shows, "If someone pays a gallon, he hasn't done any comparative shopping." says George Blochert. a provincial consumer affairs officer. He was in Lethbridge Friday and visited local antifreeze dealers. "We feel there is an adequate supply of an- tifreeze." The antifreeze buyer can save money by topping up his radiator rather than changing over the entire contents, Mr. Blochert said in an interview. In some cases, consumers with easy-to-drain radiators can save dollars per gallon by installing their own an- tifreeze. An average vehicle requires two gallons and some city service stations charge up to S3 extra per gallon to install it. the survey showed. Mr. Blochert says prices reflect increased world prices tor oil and a shortage of glycol. Antifreeze is ethylene with a small amount of glycol added. Plant capacities for making glycol should soon increase, easing that portion of pricing pressure. Prices last year- in the city ranged between and a gallon, climbing higher as the winter progressed. Many people appear to have stocked up early this year, which could explain empty an- tifreeze shelves in some es- tablishments. Retailers and wholesalers also had their orders cut back by the manufacturers. But Mr. Blochert says that tactic will enable the suppliers to keep the product coming to market in an even flow.

Nuclear talks delay Ford's dinner VLADIVOSTOK (AP) President Gerald Ford and Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev, meeting for the first time, launched a round of talks on nuclear arms curbs today and postponed a scheduled dinner to plunge deeper into the complex issue. Deputy White House press secretary John Hushen said the two leaders were meeting far into the evening. He said they had taken but one 30- minute break in talks that began soon after they arrived at a suburban resort area in mid-afternoon. Ford and Brezhnev opened their talks aboard a luxurious Siberian train today and an authoitative Soviet commen- tator declared they had "a chance to settle problems all problems." Flying in from South Korea via Japan. Ford was greeted by Brezhnev, the Communist party general secretary, at Vozdvizhenka military airport some 64 miles from here, then rode with the Soviet leader by train to the Vladivostok area resort of Ussuresk. On the flight to Siberia. U.S. State Secretary Henry Kissin- JOB FIGURES IRK MANPOWER Federal figures which show the Lethfaridge region tied for the second highest unemployment rate in Alberta this winter don't go down well with local manpower officials. The government this week tabled figures in the House of Commons estimating that 5.6 per cent of the work force in the Lethbridge federal riding will be without work this winter. Local officials on the other hand, say the employment pic- ture has never been brighter. A contributing factor to support Ottawa's calculation is the high unemployment suffered by native populations. The Lethbridge riding encompasses the Peigan Reserve and the Blood Reserve, largest in Canada. Exact figures were not available but they are much higher than the norm. The government said Athabasca constituency will have the highest percentage of unemployed in Alberta at 7.3 per cent. That northern riding also has a large native population. Edmonton Centre and Lethbridge ridings came in second place with 5.6 per cent unemployed. Ottawa uses the figures to allocate funds under the Local Initiatives Program for special winter employment programs. Lethbridge received S143.000. employment picture i? bright here, exceptionally- bright, and there are a lot of unfilled jobs." one city-based of- ficial maintained Friday. "We consider ourselves to have practically full employment in this area. Unless this winter is very severe. I don't anticipate a very high rate. "We're never going to reach 5.6 per cent in this area unless it's 40 below all year." The government estimated that Alberta will have the lowest unemployment rate in Canada this winter 4.1 percent. That would be nearly a two fold increase over the October rate of 2.2 per cent unemployment. A local official questioned that estimate ton. The rate reached only 3.1 per cent in Alberta last year and the employment pic- ture has improved, he said. Victor Glickman. a special assistant to Manpower Minister Robert Andras. Friday said the prediction? were based on a "statistical mix" for all Canada. Higher unemployment on Indian reserves was taken into consideration, he said. But the government did lack specific riding by riding statistics "1 can tell you from our experience we have found this to be an accurate representation data based on constituen- cies." Mr. Glickman said in a telephone interview ir'-m OUawa. ger said of the mini-summit, "I expect it to be a success." "They didn't come this far and we didn't come all the way here so that there would be a confrontation." Aboard the train, Moscow television commentator Valention Zorin said he had read suggestions by Americans that the Ford- Brezhnev meeting would be a get-acquainted affair. "I don't agree it's just to shake hands." said Zorin. "I believe they meet for a discus- sion of fundamental problems existing between the United States and the U.S.S.R." "I believe both leaders have a chance to settle he said. Zorin said he thought the principal topic would be ef- forts to force a new U.S.- Soviet agreement on limiting offensive nuclear weapons. Kissinger told reporters that "under no circumstances can there be an agreement" signed and sealed now. But he said he was "somewhat op- timistic" that it would be ready sometime next year. Kissinger said the Middle East would be the second most important item on the agenda. However, a senior U.S. official said aboard Ford's plane there was no "acute crisis" in the area and that neither power has an interest in escalating ten- sions. The hilly city of Vladisvostok, miles east of Moscow and 700 miles northwest of Tokyo, is the main port for the Soviet Pa- cific fleet. The two leaders will wind up their talks Sunday, after which Ford will fly back to Washington. Hargraves says U.S. cattle ratio hurts MEDICINE HAT (CP) Bert Hargraves, the Progressive Conservative MP for Medicine Hat. said Friday he has urged federal Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan to advise United States Agriculture officials how the 10 to one ratio of cattle and people between the two countries works against Canada. Mr. Hargraves said he made the comments to Mr. Whclan who telephoned him Thursday from Ottawa at his ranch east of Medicine Hat. Mr. Whelan asked for his com- ments on recent livestock im- port controls imposed by the U.S. Mr. Hargraves said he ask- ed Mr. Whelan to point out that under present conditions, a wide open border might strengthen the U.S. fat cattle market by perhaps only SI or S2 a hundredweight and would be lucky to do that. But he said their flood of ex- ports to higher Canadian markets would mean an over- night drop of at least S15. This is the point that is so difficult to explain to our American cattlemen friends. Mr Hargraves said." He said they don't study Canada's livestock industries, particularly the cattle in- dustry, "nearly as much as we study theirs." Mr. Hargraves said he urg- ed Mr. Whelan to point out that while the American ac- tion means Canada's cattle and hog industry "can be hurt. I suggested he put forward the thought we would not be in- timidated." Mr. Whelan was scheduled to be in Washington today to discuss the issues with American agriculture of- ficials. Rocky may sell stock WASHINGTON (AP) Vice president designate Nelson Rockefeller says he is considering selling all million of his oil stock in an ef- fort to lay to rest any concern over potential conflict of interest.

(CP) A coroner's jury recommend- ed Friday that all train signals be radioed to the engine from the caboose and back to avoid any errors. The jury made the recommendation at an inquest I into the deaths of Prana Burszius, 48, and Gene Roy, 27, both of Kamloops, killed Sept. 28 in a collision between a freight train and a passenger train about 90 miles north of here. The jury found that the freight proceeded through a switch without authority. The four men and two women also recommended that autopsies performed on rail fatalities test for carbon monoxide poisoning and that the power of radios in the caboose of trains be increased. The jury said the dispatch board in railway stations should be equipped to tell when a train has run through an authorized switch.

Trial strategy revealed WASHINGTON (AP) John Ehrlichman's lawyer, providing an early glimpse into his strategy in the Watergate cover-up trial, has indicated his client was attempting to protect un- related national security in- terests.

Although Ehrlichman was convicted for approving the 1971 Ellsberg break-in. Frates said whatever participation the former presidential assis- tant had in the Watergate cover-up resulted from his belief that the Ellsberg inci- dent was a legitimate national security operation.
