Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, November 29, Committee lets deadline go by The deadline for filing under the con- traverted election procedure has passed without action by the Lethbridge Safe Water Committee against the city's fluondation bylaw. But a spokesman for the committee said to- day the group is still definitely taking legal action of another sort against the fluoridation plebiscite and subsequent bylaw that was passed by city council at its last sitting. Mona fhorburn. committee secretary, said she couldn't reveal at this point what route the committee is taking now. "When the whole thing is finalized we'll certainly let you she said. The committee was serious when it said it would never stop fighting fluoridation of the city's water supply. Miss Thorburn said. "We made a committment to the citizens of Lethbridge. at least those who are strongly opposed to fluoridation, and we intend to carry that committment she said. The committee raised the contraverted elections procedure at council's last meeting in an attempt to further delay second and third readings of the fluoridation bylaw. Earlier the committee had been stymied in its request for a recount of the fluoridation plebiscite when a district court judge ruled its application had been made too late. Coaldale driver loses licence A Coaldale man who led police through the city at speeds of up to 90 miles an hour Oct. 20 was found guilty in provincial court this week of dangerous driving LaMar Navratil, 31, presi- dent of the now-disbanded Southern Alberta Auto Racers, was fined and costs Const. Vince Erdos of the. city police testified that he saw two vehicles accelerating away from a traffic light shortly after midnight Oct. 20. He pursued the cars to 9th Street, where one car failed to make the turn onto 9th street and crashed into a pole. Const. Erdos left one officer to deal with the first car, and pursued the other, a Chevrolet half-ton pickup, over the 9th Street bridge to the traffic circle. The chase then proceeded down 5th Avenue N. toward 13th Street N., down 13th Street to 2nd Ave N.. and from there to North Mayor Magrath Drive. Const. Erdos said the vehi- cle he was driving, a panel truck was not suitable for high speed chases, so he signaled by radio for help. Sgt. Keith Moline took up the chase at 5th Avenue N. and Mayor Magrath Drive Sgt. Moline chased the pickup to 43rd Street, from there south across Highway 3 and finally cut in front of the speeding vehicle at Highway, 4. He clocked the truck at speeds up to 90 miles an hour, he said. Navratil. acting in court on his own behalf, suggested there was no evidence to sup- port a dangerous driving charge. "Perhaps a guilty plea to running stop signs or speeding would be more like he told Provincial Judge George Lynch-Staunton. "I don't think this is the time for plea the judge said. "According to my mentors in Edmonton, there is no such thing as plea said Jim Langston, crown prosecutor, as he stood up to wrap up the case for the prosecution. Provincial Judge Lynch- Staunton agreed with the prosecution that Navratil's action constituted dangerous driving. The conviction on the charge will also mean that Navratil's licence will be suspended for six months, Sgt. Moline said after the trial. Normally, this action is taken by the provincial judge, but the Motor Vehicles Branch would order the suspension anyway, he said. Mini-strike blossoms at Auxiliary Hospital PHARMACY FACTS from O. C.

Open daily a.m. to p.m. Sundays and Holidays 12 noon to p.m. About 50 members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees walked off the job for one hour today at the Lethbridge Auxiliary Hospital in protest over contract talks. The provincial contract negotiations, being held here, were suspended for the day because of the walkout, CUPE provincial co ordinator Al Cunningham said today. Mr. Cunningham told The Herald he heard of the walkout while in negotiations this morning. He said the provincial ex- ecutive of CUPE had nothing to do with ordering a walkout. "People, it seems, just got fed up and walked he said. "They are fed up with the negotiations and interim increase (of offered by the Alberta Hospitals' When negotiations were suspended the two sides were at a stalemate over the interim wage increase. Mr. Cunningham said negotiations were not proceeding as fast as they could because "I suspect the AHA employee relations com- mittee has locked the negotiating committee into set guidelines. "The negotiating com- mittee has no power... and if the committee is so inex- perienced in negotiations as this they should he said. "You don't bargain from 350 miles away." The walkout today meant the negotiations would not resume until Dec. 10 when they move back to Edmonton. The walkout did not spread to the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital except that kitchen staff in the LMH was asked to slow down operations for one hour. Easier wine, beer sale sought by petition A group which wants liberalization of beer and wine sales has started a petition to have the beverages sold in grocery stores. The Calgary Independent Food Merchants' Association wants the Alberta government to introduce legislation per- mitting beer and table wine to be sold in independent, family owned and operated grocery- stores. Albert Crowe, an executive member of the association and owner of a grocery store in Calgary, says grocery shoppers in Quebec can buy wine and beer and Albertans should have the same right.

Mr. Crowe says Green's Pop Shop is the Lethbridge head- quarters for the petition. An unnamed government of- ficial has promised to introduce the petition if enough signatures are collected, he says. The association consists en- tirely of independent grocers. If beer and wine are available in groceries, no one would have to drive to a bar and weave home, he says, no one would have to go miles from a small town to a centre with a liquor stores. Mr. Crowe says he lived four years in Europe, where liquor outlets are much closer together, and saw less than half the number of drunks he would have seen in Canada.

Jim Anderson, whose resignation as principal of Winston Churchill High School was accepted Tuesday by the public school board, said he indicated when he applied that he would only stay long enough to finish a planning job.

Al Cunningham, Calgary based provincial hospital co ordinator for the Canadian Union of Public Employees, said there is a stalemate on the interim wage increase. The Alberta Hospital Associa- tion will not move from its offer of a month. But that is almost a separate issue, he said, and slow progress is being made on other items, in talks at the Holiday Inn. Staff shortages are a major issue in the talks, he said. Employees are not only leav- ing for British Columbia and Saskatchewan for higher hospital wages, but some are leaving hospital work altogether. The staff shortages are critical, and wages and work- ing conditions must be im- proved, he said. An Alberta Hospital Association spokesman was not immediately available for comment. Meanwhile, the president elect of the Alberta Certified Nursing Aide Association said aides will not be joining CUPE- In a telephone interview from Edmonton, Maryellen Rajotte said a mistake had been made in ballot counting at the ACNAA convention. It was thought that 81 per cent of the delegates had voted in favor of affiliating with CUPE. Mrs. Rajotte said 355 ballots were cast, with 261 in favor of affiliation, 59 against, and 35 spoiled. The spoiled ballots were not counted in the total when the percentage was Year's jail term brought by fluid A 21 year old Burnaby, B.C. man was sentenced in provincial court Thursday to one year in jail for possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking. Douglas Lloyd Pinney. formerly of Lethbridge, pleaded guilty to the charge Nov. 20 after four vials con- taining liquid hashish were found in his possession. Acting Crown Prosecutor Glenn Morrison, told the court the appellate division of the Supreme Court of Alberta con- siders trafficking in hashish more serious than trafficking in marijuana and trafficking in liquid more serious than trafficking in straight hashish. In sentencing Pinney Provincial Judge A. H. Elfrod said he couldn't be too lenient because this would "open the doors for others to be treated leniently." The deterrent effect of sentencing is most important. Not for the effect it will have on the accused but the effect it will have on other persons. These persons might think if a light sentence was given they could commit this offence and be treated leniently. Provincial Judge Elford said. He told Pinney if he had been a youger person there might be more leniency but Pinney was 23 and knew ex- actly what he was doing. Jerry Provost. 21. of Brocket, who pleaded to two charges of break, enter and theft was remanded in custody until Thursday for sentencing. Provost was arrested Wednesday evening sHer Herb's Men's Wear. 308 5th St S., and the Union 76 service station at 3rd Avenue and 8th Street South were reported broken into Wednesday mor- ning. Nothing was taken from the service station but a pair of cowboy boots were reported missing from Herb's. Harold Jensen of Bow Island was fined for resisting arrest following a dance at the town's communi- ty hall Saturday night. RCMP say after Jensen was arrested for causing a distur- bance a skirmish resulted with the arresting officer, Jensen's friend. Kelly Kerner. also of Bow Island, became in- volved in the skirmish and Jensen escaped but later turn- ed himself in. Keener was fined for obstructing a police officer in the execution of his duty. Both were fined for causing a disturbance. calculated, but should ha.- been, she said. In fact, the percentage ballots favoring affiliate was 73.5, and the Societies AH requires 75 per cent, she said. The nursing aides will their negotiations Dec. 12, will ask for the same thine they would have under CUPE. They want wage parity with their male counterparts, registered nursing orderlies, who do negotiate through CUPE. They should be helped by a recent human rights com- mission decision that they perform essentially the same work. AHA Employment Relations Committee Thurs- day was considering a proposal for an interim wage adjustment for the province's hospital technicians. Rod Larsen, director of staffing at University Hospital and a member of the AHA negotiating team, said the proposal came out of dis- cussions Wednesday between the AHA and the Health Sciences Association of Alber- ta, (HSAA) which directly represents 800 hospital technical workers. Details of the proposal were not released. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Phone RELIEVES GAS PAJWS USED CARS 1969 DATSUN STATION WAGON Good mechanically, priced for quick sale.
