Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday. October H. 1t74 THI LETHPHIDOe HERALD-3 Calgary writer protecting identities of gold owners JCALGARY (CP) A Calgary financial and energy writer involved in the seizure by police of foreign-owned gold here says federal tax of- ficial? will have to break-open "several hundred safety deposit boxes" if they want to find the names of the owners of the gold. C. V. Myers, author of a newsletter published by the Swiss Inter Publishing Com- pany, said in an interview the keys to the safety deposit box- es have been sent to the publishing Company in Switzerland. Mr. Myers said the action was taken to protect the iden- tity of the owners of the gold. Tax officers and RCMP con- stables raided Mr. Myers home and the offices of his lawyer and accountant last month and seized records and gold involved in the purchase by American citizens of gold. The gold was to have been held in a bank here in the names of the American owners, who are forbidden by U.S. law from owning gold anywhere in the world. Mr. Myers later charged the federal tax authorities were attempting to find out the names of the owners of the gold at the request of American tax officials. M. J. Bradshaw, assistant director of the department of national revenue special investigation division in Ot- tawa, said in a telephone interview the investigation was not conducted at the re- quest of the Americans, but he said any information obtained in the investigation would be given to the U.S. authorities if it involved American citizens. Mr. Bradshaw's comments were the first by any Canadian government official in connec- tion with the raids. It was the first public admission that the gold was, in fact, seized by the government. Mr. Myers said the Swiss company asked that the keys be sent to its head office in Switzerland so that Canadian tax officials would not be able to open the safety deposit box- es, which Mr. Myers earlier said contained millions of dollars in gold. Earlier this week the writer described the Bank of Nova Scotia branch where the gold is kept as a "tiny Fort The gold was seized Sept. 30 under court order but there have been no charges laid as a result of the raids and seizures. Elegant Alberta offices open in London townhouse LONDON (CP) A reno- vated Alberta Hquse, located in an elegant 18th-century townhouse and certainly the most modish and glamorous of all the Canadian provincial offices in London, was of- ficially opened Thursday night. Situated in the fashionable Mayfair district, the graceful six-storey, 200-year-old building has recently been redone from top to bottom, its red-brick exterior scrubbed and the interior; redecorated in deep, chocolate-and oatmeal-colored carpets, vivid draperies and hung with some 300 pieces of Alberta artwork and handicrafts. While a steady stream of in- vited guests climbed through the tall, narrow-building and Calgary workers seek pact change CALGARY (CP) City and union officials will meet today to discuss a demand by Calgary's outside workers for a per hour cost of living adjustment in an existing contract following a demonstration by about workers at city hall Thursday. Mayor Rod Sykes, who won a narrow re-election victory only 12 hours before the mid- day demonstration, told the workers that, while he would not promise they would get the raise he Would meet with their representatives to dis- cuss reopening of the contract. The outside workers, represented by Local 37 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees left their jobs at the lunch hour to stage the noisy demonstration on the steps of city hall. UNITED MOTORS CO.

VARIETY OF INTERESTS Basically, Alberta is inter- ested in industrial develop- ment and investment, par- ticularly in the petrochemical field; in attracting tourists to Alberta selecting skill- ed labor from Britain. Alberta first had an agent- general here in 1925, but the position lapsed, in 1931, until 1948 when R. A. McMullen assumed the post in the pre- sent quarters. In the> early 1970s, the Alberta government was un- decided whether to close, down 'the operation or up-grade it in a big way. As a result of a study made by Pickering, it was de- cided to expand into the pre- sent renovated buildings., Offices are located in the bottom three floors, with quarters above for Pickering and his wife afid their children, Rosemary, 9, and David, 8. "Every rdom looks like a page from a Beautiful-Homes gushed one lady guest. Pickering said he did not know-' the total cost of the renovation, with expenses be- ing divided up among tourist, industry and other departments.
