Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, October 4, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Dateline Alberta Protesting students ill EDMONTON (CP) One of 14 University of Alberta students protesting the im- prisonment of Soviet historian Valentyn Moroz was ordered off a hunger strike Thursday after 72 hours without food. Dr. Dennis Kreptul, who ex- amines the students each day, said he told Lessa Suchowersky to stop taking part after she suffered fainting spells. Bohdan Romaniuk, a spokesman for the group that started their fast Monday- taking nothing but water and salt tablets said the students are asking that the three levels of government apply pressure to have Mr. Moroz, believed in the 96th day of his own hunger strike, released. He said most of the hunger strikers were suffering ab- dominal pains and complained of light headedness as they entered their fifth day. Leitch answers request EDMONTON (CP) At- torney general Merv Leitch said Thursday he is willing to consider expanding the terms of reference of a judicial in- quiry into Edmonton's civic affairs but will do so only at the request of city council. Mr. Leitch was replying to a request from Aid. Ed Leger, who said he had learned that there is a time limit facing the inquiry from Oct. to the present. The inquiry, under Mr. Justice William Morrow of the Northwest Territories Supreme Court, was called after Aid. Alex Fallow said he had been offered a gift by two city developers. Fires cost million EDMONTON (CP) Fighting forest fires will cost Alberta about million this year, Lands and Forests Minister Allan Warrack said today. The province spent million fighting forest fires last year. Dr. Warrack said in a prepared statement that the increase resulted from a greater number of large fires in high-timber value areas and the rising cost of fire suppres- sion control. Forty-four per cent of this year's fires were listed as man-caused, compared with 72 per cent last year. Lightn- ing was the major cause of fires in 1974 at 56 per cent, up 35 per cent from last year.

(Times in Monntrn H'vlirfjt time) EDMONTON (CP) Bob Clark, Social Credit house leader in Alberta, has criticiz- ed the provincial government for granting more than 50 coal exploration permits for the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains while a study was being made of land use and resource development in the area. The study was done by the Environment Conservation Authority, which in its final report released Wednesday, said surface coal mining should be developed with great caution and in no case should a surface mining operation be permitted unless the total benefits to the province can be shown to out- weigh the total disbenefits. Mr. Clark, in an interview, said the government has con- sistently told the people that there would be no new land resource development in the region until the conservation authority's report had been received and studied. "There is undoubtedly a severe lack of co-ordination between government departments when the depart- ment of lands and forests con- sistently issues new coal ex- ploration permits while the department of mines and minerals is maintaining a moratorium on coal leases." DANGEROUS PRACTICE Mr. Clark said that since Return of areas favored EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta Environment Conser- vation Authority says the provincial government should repossess prime lakeshore areas on the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains from private ownership. The recommendation is con- tained in a final report prepared by the authority following public hearings into land use and resource development in the area. The report was released by En- vironment Minister Bill Yurko. The report says a systematic repossession should be undertaken so the lakes can be used more by the public. Future cottage leases on crown lands should be restricted to one-third of lakeshore frontage at least 100 yards back from the water. MAJOR EMPHASIS The authority says major emphasis must be placed on recreational and tourist use of the region. It calls for more and improved parks, campgrounds, tourist centres, youth hostels, outdoor educa- tion centres and hiking trails. Special trails and area should be designated for the use of snowmobiles and access to off-highway facilities should be denied to all-terrain vehicles. The report says that to assist animal movement, national and provincial parks, wilderness areas and wildland reserves should be juxtaposed to give broad, protected areas. Hunting should be prohibited within a half mile of major roads on the slopes. Medical role in death explained EDMONTON
