Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Under the deme By THE CANADIAN PRESS Ex-con experience 'helpful' Alberta's new solicitor- general suggested that ex- perience as a convict might be more useful in her job than legal training The minister, Helen Hunley, also praised the value of civil disobedience. Speaking during second reading of the bill to create her department formally, the minister, who has respon- sibility for the police and the prisons, asked: "What good citizens obey bad She added, however, that she does not advocate lawlessness and civil dis- obedience. "That's hardly the role of the person charged with responsibility to protect law and order." Instead, there was a need to be sensitive to wrongs and in- justice. Miss Hunley, who retains responsibility for the Alberta Health Insurance Commission in addition to her new port- folio, told the legislature she does not feel that lack of train- ing as a lawyer will hinder her in the new job. "It would have been more helpful if I had been an ex-con, but then I wouldn't be here at all." She said prisons must be thought of as "educational in- stitutions" restoring to socie- ty the largest possible number of persons trained in the prac- tice of living in the com- munity. Gordon Taylor (SC Drumheller) criticized the creation of a solicitor- general's department out of some of the responsibilities of the attorney-general's department. Hunting on the increase Hunting is on the increase in Alberta and the government believes the rising cost of food is one of the reasons. Allan Warrack, lands and forests minister, said in the legislature the sale of hunting licences had increased 10 per cent above last year. One of the reasons appears to be increased food prices, he said in reply to Charles Drain (SC Pincher Creek- George Ho Lem (SC Calgary McCall) asked Dr. Warrack if it is actually cheaper to buy meat than to hunt it. However, speaker Gerald Amerongen ruled him out of order since he was asking "for an expression of opinion which perhaps might best be put to an abattoir." Network given warning OTTAWA (CP) Any use of a CTV network tape recording of a New Democratic Party caucus would be in contempt of Parliament, the television network has been warned by Commons Speaker Lucien Lamoureux. The warning is contained in a letter Thursday from the Speaker to Tim Ralfe, a CTV reporter who placed an elec- tronic bugging device in an NDP caucus room on Parlia- ment Hill Wednesday. Mr. Ralfe said Thursday only one copy of the tape was 30 minutes in total on two reals. Both reels were given to the NDP as ordered by the Commons Wednesday, he said. The bugging device was monitored during the meeting on a radio receiver in a CTV truck behind the Commons chamber. Mr. Ralfe told NDP Leader David Lewis of the bugging shortly before the Commons sat Wednesday. He said it was done to demonstrate how easi- ly rooms can be bugged and the need for electronic eavesdropping legislation. CTV plans a special program on the subject in November. Ex-Alberta Friday, Octobtr 19, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-3 Ontario may drop fight Ontario's energy minister has indicated that the province is considering dropp- ing its pursuit of Alberta in the courts over Alberta's natural gas pricing policies. Darcy McKeough said Thursday a decision would have to be made in the next several weeks as to whether Ontario would press the hearings on the con- stitutionality of Alberta gas prices. He also said in the legislature, Ontario was con- tinuing to show interest in the Alberta tar sands as a source of energy.

Logan Pass open. physicist dies, 57 WASHINGTON (CP) Dr. Frank Trelford McClure, 57, Edmonton-born physicist and inventor of the United States Navy's satellite navigation system, died Thursday in Johns Hopkins Hospital following a heart attack. An internationally-known authority in the field of com- bustion, rockets and guided missile technology, McClure was a member of numerous scientific advisory panels to successive presidents, the defence department and the U.S. arms control and disar- mament agency. For his contributions to re- search, defence and to the U.S. space program, he was awarded the presidential Cer- tificate of Merit. Soon after the launching of the first Sputnik in 1957, McClure discovered a means of employing the signals of satellites for precise naviga- tion on the earth's surface. His invention led to the development of the navy satellite navigation system which has been guiding U.S. navy ships since 1964 and recently was extended to com- mercial shipping. The invenstion brought him the first National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) inventions award. McClure won first-class honors in organic chemistry along with his bachelor of science degree from the University of Alberta in 1938. He took his PhD in physical chemistry at the University of Wisconsin three years later. At the time of his death, he was deputy director of the Johns Hopkins applied physics laboratory in nearby Silver Spring, Md., and chief of its biomedical program. It was at the instigation of Dr. McClure and a Canadian- born physician. Dr. Russell Hedley Morgan of London, Onl., that Johns Hopkins set up a program of two-man physicist and develop, im- prove and invent medical in- struments and prosthetic devices. Micheners will reside in Toronto RED DEER (CP) Governor-General Roland Michenor Thursday told friends at a reception here that he and his wife will move back to Toronto when he vacates the position of governor-general in January. The Micheners indicated they have bought a house in the Rosedale area and have made arrangements to move into it in January. The home they owned prior to Mr. Michcner's being appointed high commissioner to India in 1964 is occupied by their daughter and her family. It also is in Rosedale. General Michener, who is being succeeded in his post by Jules Leger, will serve as chnnrcllor of Queen's Univer- sity and also plans to do some writing. Was hanged man guilty? Find of century? Rupert Jeroy, of Ottawa holds a .32 calibre Smith and Wesson pistol believed to be the weapon used in the 1868 assasination of Thomas D'Arcy KcGee. The weapon which recently came into Mr. Jeroy's possesion, is being examined by gun historians and ballistics experts to determine if Patrick Whelan, hanged for the murder in 1868, really committed the crime. OTTAWA (CP) Modern detective methods may reveal within weeks whether James Whelan. the man hanged in 1868 for murdering Thomas D'Arcy McGee, was really the guilty man. The revolver taken from Whelan after the murder has been found, and historians and firearms experts hope to learn shortly whether it fired the fatal bullet into Mr. McGee's whether Whelan was telling the truth as he denied the crime all the way to the gallows. "It's the gun find of the cen- tury." says Roy Jinks, his- torian for Smith and Wesson gunsmiths of Springfield, Mass. "It rates in the same cate- gory of history-making fire- arms with the gun that killed Abe Lincoln. It's the most his- toric weapon I've examined in 20 years." D'Arcy McGee was an MP when he died, and a Father of Confederation, cabinet minis- ter and drinking partner of Sir John A. Macdonald. Canada's first prime minister. The gun. a Smith and Wes- son .32-calibre army model, was seized by the officer who arrested Whelan after the murder. Along with a box of cartridges, he then apparently took it home after the jury .decided that it was the mur- der weapon. Eventually, it found its way into the family of Rupert Je- roy, who recently told Mary Burns, historian of the Na- tional Capital Commission, of its existence. Now Mrs. Burns has been joined by T.P. Slattery. Mon- treal lawyer and author of two books on Mr. McGee. two ballistics experts from the On- tario solicitor-general's de- partment, and Mr. Jinks in the search for a final solution to the murder. Tests should determine whether the by serial numbers recorded at the trial as the pistol taken from the fatal shot. The original bullet, worn and misshapen, will be com- pared to bullets that Mr. Jinks has supplied for the tests. Controversy lingered after the McGee shooting because ORDER SHORT 747S NEW YORK (API Pan American World Airways an- nounced it has placed an order for 10 shortened versions of the Boeing 747. The order is worth million. The new version is designed for long, over-water routes where passenger traffic is too light for a regular 747 but too heavy for a 707. the only witness to the 2a.m. murder on an Ottawa street appeared at the trial after a reward was offered. "In my opinion the case is still a mystery." says Mr. Slattery. "Whelan was cer- tainly not guilty in a technical sense." The murder also was tied to strong public feelings over the Fenian troubles. Whelan was identified with the Fenians, and D'Arcy McGee was a noted opponent of the Irish nationalist movement in Can- ada and the United States. SAND GRAVEL >ASPHALT ;
