Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Political party balloting given greater precision OTTAWA (CT) The multi- ple choice balloting at the Lib- eral policy convention last weekend gives the government more slide-rule than yardstick to gauge parly membership feeling on a range of issues. It will lake months to analyze the results of voting on more than 300 resolutions by some delegates. In fact, (he counting wasn't complete a week after the convention. On marijuana, the voting pal- tern was confused and rather hesitant. It was clear delegates weren't prepared to go over- board one way or the other. One Wmr resolution may have illustrated the value of the voting system, 11 said simply lhat paris of a section of the Criminal Codn on labor should be repealed. Fewer than delegates on either side agreed or disagreed, However, the syslem may be but almost 400 marked ihem- here to Slav selves "not sure. The resolu- been debated and "H gives us some very hard information on the views of del- egates on policy says convention secretary Torr- ance J. Wylie. AL the convention, about 250 j resolutions were parceled out to j a dozen forums on labor, re- p gional development, p o v e r t y and so on. i A resolution needed 30-per- j cent support in the forum to get j to the convention floor, where it was further debated. Once the debate was over, delegates had a five-choice bal- lot to mark. They could say they strongly agreed, agreed, weren't sure, disagreed, or strongly disagreed. As many as voted on some resolutions, as few as 600 on itself a good indi- cation to party leadership of where the interest is and what the priorities are. The voting on the multiple- choice ballot tells far more than i any straight yes-no vote can. j On abortion, a clear-cut vote in favor of less red tape was ev- they didn't know what the code said. "You can even measure the absence of information by look- ing at the 'not sure' Mi Wylie said, using this resolution as an illustration. "They didn't have the information un which to make a choice." He says the results are "quite remarkable" and predicts that the system will come into broader political use. "This type of information is very, valuable to a politi cai party. And it makes dele gate participation very real and involved." essor studies pipeline damage EDMONTON rCP) A Uni-! through a pipeline laid on the Fired proh case to be reopened Monday, Navembtr 30, 1970 7IIE tETHBRIDSB HERALB IX i B usincssman terrorized, i gives to gunman CHECKS OPENING Warden John Norfield points to hole cut in wire fence on Prince Albert penitentiary grounds by escaping convicts. versity of Alberta mechanical engineering professor has been awarded a grant to study possible mathematical predic lion of northern pipeline dam age to permafrost. Dr. G. H. S. Lock received the grant from Canadian Natiira Gas Processing Association and the project is expected to take at least six months. Feasibility of oil and gas pipe- lines through the Canadian North depends on whether a de- sign can be found which will not destroy (he environment. "We can't duplicate the work ident. Delegates said in effect j of Dr. Lock said. that the government's 1969 law isn't satisfactory. "It was a challenge to the government to reconsider then1 says Mr. Wylie. "They may respond or they may not." "They have invested millions of dollars for field study. "So we are trying to deter- mine through the use of mathe- matics what will happen when warm oil or hot gas passes permafrost. "We want to see if we can predict the degree of deteriora- tion of the permafrost so it can be avoided." A pipeline buried in the frozen ground, or laid on top of it, will melt the permafrost into Dr. Lock said.

Another method would be to build a gravel pad with the pipeline placed at one side of the top. This would provide a service road as well as avoiding melting of the permafrost. But there were some areas in which this method would not be practical because nf the dis- tance gravel would have to be hauled. Dr. Lock said still another method would be to set the pipe- line on "thermopile's high enough off the ground so cari- bou could cross under the pipe- line. The thermopiles conducted leat coming out of the ground better than heat going into the ground. "In winter the heat 'ivould come out of the ground rapidly and the permafrost would freeze very solid. The melting in sum- mer would not be as great as the freezing in whiter so you're on the winning side." Nicotine-free tobacco soon ready for market WARSAW (AP) Polish re- searchers say they have devel- oped tobacco with as little as five per cent of the nicotine found in the leaf now. Dr. Jan Berbec, head of the department for special plants at MpNTREAL (CT) The Ca- nadian Association of University Teachers voted here to "seek new initiatives" for settling their dispute with the adminis- tration of Simon Fraser Univer- i over the dismissal of seven pi ofessors. The vote, 33 to 18, was based on a proposal by Prof. Peter Pierce of the University of Brit- ish Columbia. It was the culmination of two days of sharply divided debate on the CAUT executive's origi- nal motion to censure university President Kenneth Strand and the board of governors unless they lifted the suspensions against six of the professors. Dismissal charges against the seventh were dropped but his (teaching contract was allowed i to run cut last Aug. 31, and was jnot renewed. i All seven, teachers in the poli- j tics, sociology and anthropology I department at Simon iivere suspended from teaching in October. Prof. Pierce's proposal means that the CAUT executive will enter into new negotiations with i President SUand with a view to gaining reinstatement for the i professors. .0 KANSAS CITY (AP) A 52- year-old business executive says he gave to a man who passed as a New York banker because the man threatened "death to all of family and me, both." Robert Bremson, in a copy- riyht interview with the Kansas City Star, told how he was ler- r o r i -i, e d nearly four hours recently while associates prepared the package of money at a bank and delivered it to him and the extortionist at the entrance to Mcnorah Hospital. The president of Bremson Photo Industries Inc., said the man lured him into driving a rural area of Johnson County, Kan., on a pretext of looking at some property, then pulled a gun and demanded SIOO.OOO. "He toid me he wasn't in this alone and that my wife, daugh- ter-in-law and grandson were being watched by his asso- Bremson said. "He said if I had ever seen a sex crime I would know what would happen to them." Bremson called his bank, gave j instructions t' prepare j money package, then called his secretary and told her to pick up the money and deliver it at the hospital, he said. Officials at City National Bank, suspicious that something i was wrong, called Bremson's j lawyer for advice. The lawyer, Edward Smith, declined Ihc bank's offer of armed guards, and said the payment should he made with- out interference from the FBI because of possible harm to Bremson's family, j The money was delivered as i he and the gunman sat in Brem- son's car, Bremson said. MISSION TO CiirKA LONDON (AP) Britain is sending a farm trade mission to Communist Ciiina next spring as part of a drive to increase exports, the Agricultural Export Council announced Friday. Chairman Sir Rudi Steinberg said China offers Uie greatest potential for increased sales, particularly of livestock and an- imal feeds. Poland's Institute for Soil Fer- tility, said his researchers have been working on producing nico- tine-free tobacco since 1964. "Our nicotine-free brand is a, _ normal Berbec said.! Dr. Kenneth R.

(CP) deer hunter wants to bag a buck with large antlers, but Vic Gatin of Saskatoon went one better. He shot a deer with two complete sets of antlers. The buck he got near this community 110 miles east of .ilegina apparently had killed another in an antler-locking duel. The one that survived the giim contest was carrying an extra 25 to 30 pounds of ant- lers; head and neck when it was shot. Before the deer season opened, some local residents who saw tlie buck thought it bad a dead porcupine caught in its antlers. "The characteristic feature of its leaves is that during matu- ring and drying the nicotine dis- integrates." Berbac said importers from West Germany and Italy are in- terested.
