Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 26, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Thursday, November 26, 1970------ Calgary public hearing ends alter 21 days Defect reported in plane device CALGARY (CP) A public hearing into the operation of civic affaire ended Wednesday after 21 days of testimony and more than 120 witnesses. The inquiry before Mr, Jus- tice W. G. Morrow of the North- west Territories Court was con- cerned with thefts from the city, possible political interfer- ence in police duties and ac- counting and security controls at city hall Justice Morrow said ho hoped to complete his report and have il in the hands of provincial officials who ap- pointed the commission by March 1.

Mayor Rod Sykes, the last person to testify, said em- ployees at city hall resent at- tempts to implement new pol- icies. Fear, resistance and resent- ment is normal at certain levels of management, he said, even when the changes are designed to increase the ef- ficiency of government. "In Calgary, the aldermen are substantially controlled by the administration in that they do depends entirely on the information supplied to them, "If they don't have all the facts in tine, they can't do the job effectively. I have been introducing pressure to try and get that in- formation." When Justice Morrow said perhaps the mayor was rocking the boat, Mr. Sykes replied: "Some people don't beli.eve I belong in the boat I'm rocking." He had been criticized during the first three sessions of the inquiry and low morale among city employees had been attri- buted to administrative changes. Civic government is compar- able to private enterprise, the mayor said, with one exception. "Civic government does not have the normal financial and management disciplines that compel an improvement of per- formance. "If you manage the govern- ment ineffectively, you don't go broke like a business. You just raise taxes. "There is a real problem of administration when there is no personal reward for success and no personal penalty for failure." An "open government" is needed to solve administrative problems in the city, he said, but some people have more ac- cess to information than others. "This kind of thing is con- trary to the public interest." Hunting season experiment works ivell DAUPHIN, Man.

FRIDAY SATURDAY 27th-28fh NORTH STORE H CTHOC H52 MM DRIVE s H JiUKE PHONE 327-6440 TORONTO (CP) A federal inquiry was told here that early in 1968 Scandinavian Air- lines System reported that in some cases erratic electronic impulses passed through acti- vating machinery in a manner that could trigger the ground spoiler braking system on a DC Jetliner. The inquiry, under Mr, Jus- tice Hugh Gibson ol the Ex- chequer Court of Canada, is in- vestigating the July 5 crash of an Air Canada elongated DC-8 jetliner into a farmer's fieJd north of Toronto International Airport which killed all 109 per- sons aboard. Premature deployment of the ground spoiler system, a brak- ing device consisting of steel panels along both wings, is be- lieved responsible for causing the big jetliner to hit a runway heavily. The jet subsequently took off regained altitude, but lost most of its right wing in a series of explosions and crashed. John A. Love, an air accident investigator with the federal transport department, said SAS reported the defect in a mecha- nism called the anti-skid device system which activates the spoilers through synchronization with the landing gear wheels, The spoilers normally are de- ployed by electronic signals travelling from the wheels ti the spoiler system, through thi anti-skid device, the instant tin wheels touch the runway. Mr. Love said McDonnell Douglas Corp., builders of tin aircraft, sent an alert bulletin tc buyers of DC-8s shortly afte SAS reported the problems i had experienced. A service bulletin also was is sued, suggesting corrections fo the system. Under questioning from Me Donnell-Douglas lawyer, D. K Laidlaw, Mr. Love said tin spoilers could only be triggerei accidentally to the method re- ported by SAS if they had al ready been armed by the fligh deck crew of the aircraft. The spoilers generally are armed at an altitude of 2.00C feet or less. Earlier, Mr. Love revealed that the pressure needed tc manually operate the from the cockpit averages abou 35 to 40 pounds in Air Canada's 28 The inquiry is trying to deter mine if the spoilers were de- ployed by a mechanical mal function or through human error. The only possible way they could have been deployed by tha flight deck crew was througl working a spoilers' lever in the cockpit. Foreign influence study is planned EDMONTON (CP) Educa- tion Minister Robert Clark an- nounced here that the govern- ment plans to establish a com- mittee to examine foreign in- fluence_ and control in Alberta's educational institutions. The committee will assess (lie extent to which foreign profes- sionals are holding positions in provincial educational institu- tions and the problems associ- ated with the use of foreign .extbooks. Its first task will involve re- search into the number of for- eign professionals teaching and aiding administrative posts in Alberta's universities, and primary and secondary schools. Mr. Clark said Hie committee will attempt to determine the extent to which Canadian aca- demics are being excluded from opportunities because of their citizenship. The committee's longer-range function will be to evaluate textbooks used in primary and secondary schools to determine (he extent of foren influence. It will look into the possibility ol replacing existing textb o o k s with alternative textbooks pro- duced in Canada by Canadians. Mr. Clark said the member- ship of the committee will be announced shortly. PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES JACKOT 57 NUMBERS Lethbridge Elks Ledge Room (Upstairs) EVERY THURSDAY 8 P.M.
