Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 52 Tffl UTHtRIDei HIKAID 7, WO Youth Column Everything Free At Medic Clinic TORONTO (CP) The peace banner and torn furni- ture in the waiting room of the small downtown clinic dis- tinguished it from the typical hospital clinic or doctor's off- ice. But what makes it much more unusual is that every- thing is free. "We're trying to bring med- icine back to the said Michael Bilger, the Toronto Free Youth Clinic's director. "We get the people on the street who don't have any money. We're a community clinic and the community needs About persons have been treated since the opening to May. Garbage Piled High LONDON (AP) Armies of rats, maggots and flies invadec parts of London today, and thousands of fish died .in pol- luted rivers in the eighth day ol a sanitation workers' strike. Some 100 million gallons ol untreated sewage slopped into English rivers and canals in a 24-hour period. Uncollected gar- bage was piled high in London and other cities. Authorities in London and Bristol, where 50 million gallons of raw sewage were being pumped daily into the Avon River, said public health was not threatened. But officials in Luton, north of London, prepared to call on the army to help man two sewage plants where supervisors were unable to purify fully discharges into the Lea River, a tributary of the Thames. Volunteers operating pumping stations in London said they would have to ask for army help if heavy rains increased the load on the drainage sys- tem. Fifth thousand garbagemen, sewage pumpers, street swee- pers and maintenance workers are on strike in cities and vil- lages scattered throughout Eng- land. Bargaining has broken down over their demand for a 55-shilling weekly raise to bring basic wages for municipal workers to 10s Union leaders say they will order more men off the job if the municipalities stick to their offer of 36 shillings. Health inspectors said rats were breeding rapidly and mov- ing out from rubbish dumps in some London neighborhoods. Police received increasing re- ports of maggot infestations from neglected garbage cans. Ronald Toms, a conservation officer on the Lea River, said: "Fish had only returned in the last year and now we have lost them again. It will probably take another 10 years before the river becomes fishafaie again." Strike Hits Three B.C. Newspapers KELOWNA, B.C. (CP) A strike by 14 pressmen halted publication of, three Thomson daily newspapers with a com- bined circulation of more than Tuesday in the British Columbia interior. Picket lines were established outside the offices of the K e 1 o w n a Courier, Kamloops Sentinel and Penticton Herald. A fourth Thomson news- paper, the twice-weekly Ver- non News, was also hit by the The News, which pub- lished a partial, run Monday, is not due to publish again until Thursday. The Nanaimo Free Press on Vancouver Island, another Thomson daily, was not affect- ed by the walkout and was pub- lishing normally. The strike was initiatwl by the Pressmen's Union, which served strike notice along with the International Typographi- cal Union on Thomson Newspa- pers B.C. Ltd. Sept. 27. ITU members reported for work at all three dailies in the interior Tuesday but were not setting type. The unions want a hour- ly increase in a two-year con- tract for employees of the four interior newspapers. The com- pany has offered a vage borst of 70 cents hourly on tho exist- ing base rate. Dr. David Collins and the staff of seven are mainly con- cerned with everyday illness- colds, pneumonia and they also try to help youngsters on drugs, talking them down from a bad trip or trying to wean them. Mr. Bilger and Ann Pohol started the clinic and hired five other med- ics, a political science gradu- ate, a nurse, and a vege- tarian. Each of the seven draws a week in salary. When someone comes in with a complaint, he is helped by one of the seven. If he needs more than first aid Dr. Collins looks after him. An American who once had a private practice in a mid- dle-class suburb in the United States, he now earns a week. WANTS TO BE DOCTOR "I want to be a doctor the way a plumber is a Dr. Collins said. "I don't want to live a pro- fessional life. Society is be- coming two. sional and and that's anti-human. "I really like what I'm doing. I do it well and I know that I'm living as nearly a loving existence as I could. I have the satisfaction of being a human being 24 hours a day. I never have to lie or compromise or give in to something I. don't believe in." Most of the clinic's patients are penniless and few have medical insurance. So money has become the greatest problem of the clinic. Established as a non-profit corporation, its budget tlu's year is but it has re- ceived only so far in donations, mostly from the Addiction Research Founda- tion. Pharmaceutical companies donate drugs but some still have to be bought. "Basically it said Dr. Collins. "I'm virtually Working as here as when I had my private practice." Manson Booted Out LOS ANGELES (AP) Charles Manson has been re- moved from the courtroom again after taking a flying leap at the judge in the Sharon Tate murder trial. "In the name of Christian jus- tice, someone should cut your head Manson shouted as he wrestled with bailiffs at the foot of Judge Charles Older's bench. The bearded, long-haired leader of a hippie-type clan sprang at the judge after telling him: "The minute I see you are going to use this courtroom to kill me, you know what I'm joing to do to you." Manson, 35, is on trial with three women followers, charged with murdering Miss Tate and iix others in August, 1969. Twice ejected last week for singing and shouting taunts at the judge, the defendants were readmitted Monday and given another chance to behave. But as the session began, Manson spoke up, asking a chance to question witnesses. The judge refused. "Are you going to use this courtroom to kill me? Do you want me to be Manson asked the judge, his voice rising with anger. Tho judgi told him to be silent. The judge tried to proceed with testimony, but was inter- rupted by Manson who shouted, 'Do you think I'm With that, the slim five-foot- ive defendant, with a sharp pencil clenched in one hand, made a quick cat-like jump with one foot on the counsel table, launching himself into a dive at the judge, He plunged head first to the floor within two feet of the bench. Subdued by bailiffs, he was removed to an adjoining detention room.

CLAIM RECORD Kevin Farr and Christopher Davies of Grahamstown, South Africa, claim they have set a world record by throwing and catching a raw egg 182 feet, 2 inches. PREDICT GOOD YEAR PARIS (AP) A favorable combination of sun, rain and wind has made 1970 a good and perhaps a great year for French wine, experts are saying with the grape harvest half picked. For red Burgundies, it may be the year of the century. In Bor- deaux, vintners and winemas- ters agree that this year's vin- tage is better and much more abundant than 1969.
