Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 3, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Strikers Beat Gun SAULT STE. MARIE, Ont. (CP) - More than 300 workers went out on strike Friday at Abitibi Paper Co. plants here and in Iroquois Falls, about 40 miles northeast of Timmins. The strike by the members of the United Paperm a k e r s and Paperworkers Union was not expected to start until the weekend. Matt Reilly, president of the union's Sault Ste. Marie local, said the workers at the plant here walked out without Iris knowledge. A union spokesman in Toronto had said Thursday that a strike, authorized by 95 per cent of the union membership, would likely be called at all the company's plants during the weekend. Abitibi, which produces more than one million tons of newsprint a year, also has plants in B e a u p r e, Que., Pine Falls, t Man., Thunder Bay, Ont., and Sturgeon Falls, Ont. The s t r i k e follows a breakdown in contract negotiations earlier this week. The union is seeking a seven-per-cent pay increase, or 29 cents an hour, in the first year, seven per cent worth 28 cents in the second and 30 cents in the third. Wages now average $2.98 an hour. The union has said the company offered a two - year contract with 27 and 26-cent increases. U.S. Plans Fresh Probe Troops Train BERLIN (AP) - Polish, Czechoslovakia", and Bulgarian troops began crossing into East Germany yesterday for 100.000-man manoeuvres of the Com-munist-bloc Warsaw pact countries. Try Before You Buy UP TO 30-DAY TRIAL ON YOUR DOCTOR'S RECOMMENDATION (22) MA! CO SMITH-JONES HEARING AID SERVICE 618 3rd Ave. S. Phone 328-5447 WASHINGTON (AP) - The Nixon administrat i o n is planning a fresh probe of Communist intentions in the Vietnam peace talks in Paris. The aim is to find out whether an interest in serious negotiations is behind the recent eight-point Communist proposal for a Vietnam peace settlement. President Nixon, informants report, plans to discuss the projected manoeuvre with his chief Paris negotiator, Ambass a d o r David Bruce, when the two meet in Ireland Sunday for a review of the deadlocked Paris talks. The instrument of United States tactics, informants said, seems certain to be a new presentation of basic American policy proposals for a settlement. The package is expe c t e d to cover the possibility of a ceasefire. Probably Nixon will call explicitly for a stop - shooting agreement on conditions previously outlined. Doctor Sentenced To Life HOUSTON, Tex. (Reuters) - A doctor has been sentenced to life imprisonment for plotting the murder of his partner so he could gain complete control of the hospital they ran. Dr. A. H. (Archie) Btirkhal-fcer, 43, was convicted of complicity in the murder of Dr. Robert E. Pendleton Dec. 19, 1966. He pleaded not guilty. The state had accused him of hiring five men to kill his for- mer partner, and demanded the death penalty. Two of the alleged conspirators, including the man who fired the rifle shot that killed Pendleton, are already in jail. Two others are free on bail and one man was granted immunity from prosecution in exchange for his evidence. Burkhalter and Pendleton ran the Red Bluff Hospital in nearby Pasadena.

On sobering up, he told police, he travelled the 30 miles back to Unuvik because he thought he was going blind. His stomach was pumped out in hospital.

Taber, Alberta Mr. Schreyer v,ias addressing the constitutional convention of the United Steelworkers of America in Atlantic City. He said his government introduced the auto insurance plan in the face of tremendous opposition from the insurance industry- '""hey were not worried about Manitoba so much as they were worried that when the plan succeeds, it will be copied in other provinces and states as a solution to the growing dissatisfaction with auto insurance." The labor movement came through, le said, when a campaign was mounted in favor of the government plan. "TVy provided the organizational kn<../-how to all of those who were in favor of our plan. And in the face of many thousands of dollars of opposition lobby money, we won the battle. With particular reference to Saskatchewan, M r. Schreyer said: "A few years ago, a New Democratic government in the province of Saskatchewan introduced universal hospital insurance, and then universal medical insurance. "Opposition to the plan was bitter. "This year, every province in Canada will he covered by those plans, thanks again to the combined efforts of Canada's labor movement working together with Lie New Democratic Party and other interested groups of citizens." BOY BURNED - Cameron Smith, 14, is in fair condition in a Toronto hospital following skin grafts to most of his body from the waist down.

Fire Deaths Dip; Damage Sets Record EDMONTON (CP) - The number of fires and fire deaths in Alberta declined last year but property loss climbed to a record $18 million, Fire Commissioner A. E. Bridges said today. Twenty-four persons were killed in fires in the province in 1969, 14 men, eight women and two children compared with 54 in 1968, 19 men, 14 women and 21 children. Property loss was up more than $3 million in 1969 from $14,353,838 in 1968. Two major causes of loss of life were careless smoking and careless handling of flammable liquids and gases, the fire com' missioner said. Corn Crop Shrinkage Reported WASHINGTON (AP) - The United States agriculture department Friday estimated the country's blight-damaged corn crop at 4,185 million bushels, a shrinkage of five per cent in little more than three weeks. The forecast was a special report on corn prospects as of Sept. 23. Three weeks ago the department announced Sept. 1 prospects at 4,400 million bushels. Crop reporting board officials said the latest estimate, about 218 million bushels below Sept. 1, was due "largely from increased damage from southern corn leaf blight and other diseases." The estimate was 12 per cent below the record-large 1967 crop and would be the smallest since 1966, officials said. The latest estimate included a national average yield of 72.2 bushels an acre, compared with 75.9 indicated for Sept. 1. The new projection represented a 635 million b~hel drop -or 13 psr cent-from indications July 1 for a record-break-ing crop of 4,800 billion bushels. There's A Monster In The Loch DRUMANDROCHIT, Scotland (Reuters) - There's a monster in the loch, scientists mixing love potions by the water's edge, white hunters in the plains and redcoats fighting Indians in the hills. No eyebrows are raised m this tiny Highland village at the sight of a North American log fort plunked down for a television series amid the heather, or the latest assortment of hunters for Nessie, the Loch Ness monster. Drumandrochit keeps its eye on making a living, raising sheep and hairy cattle, while visitors indulge in their varied flights of fancy. Somewhere in the distance lurks a Walt Disney camera crew ready to pounce once Nessie is sighted. For the BBC, the surrounding hills are perfect for James Fenimore Cooper's Last of the Mohicans, the classic tale of the American Indians' fateful encounter with the white man. PR MEN JOIN SEARCH While the ersatz Indians roam the Highlands, real New York Madison Avenue public relations men seem to have requisitioned the loch to hunt for Nessie, perhaps the world's most elusive creature. One group, sponsored by a perfume maker, came bearing sex essences. The other, backed by a whisky firm, came equipped with an infrared camera able to photograph in total darkness. ASHPHALT PAVING T0LLESTRUP SAND and GRAVEL Construction Co. PHONE 328-2702 - 327' Nessie Is the queen of Britain's annual silly season. Each summer, there is a new batch of stories about her: She is in love, she is a virgin, past all thoughts of sex; she had a stomach ache in 1753-and will probably suffer more because the loch is in danger of becoming polluted. No matter how debatable these stories are, few who live along Loch Ness's shores doubt Nessie's existence. COMPETITION KEEN Each year, scientists and adventurers compete to find her, while the Loch Ness Phenomenon Investigation Bureau, set up by a Conservative member of Parliament, maintains a group of watchers on the surrounding hills. Several prominent persons from both Britain and the United States have over the years staked their reputations on providing the evidence that Nessie exists. Among them is a University of Chicago biologist, Roy MacKal, who spends his winters studying viruses and his summers hunting Nessie. Two American-sponsored expeditions which arrived at the loch recently aimed at a quick sighting of Nessie. The sex essence people, armed with gallons of the stuff taken from sea creatures at the Miami Seaquarium, think they can "stir things up in the loch and get Nessie to surface." They dropped their first load the other day, and there wasn't a ripple. The other expedition, led by Amazon explorer Jack Ullrich, has only one weapon in the search for Nessie -a $25,000 infrared camera able to photograph in total darkness. On the first day Ullrich's crew arrived, the camera didn't. On the second day, it turned up, but wasn't in working order. On the third day, he rebutted criticism that it would not do much because it has a range of only 100 yards for a 23-mile-long loch.
