Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Pay boosts for MPs in offing OTTAWA (CP) Pay in- creases for MPs may be in the offing, Privy Council presi- dent Mitchell Sharp announc- ed in the Commons Tuesday. Replying to Social Credit Leader Real Caouette, who complained that members face soaring living costs like everyone else, Mr. Sharp said he hoped to "persuade the government to bring forward some proposals about members' salaries." Members last received in- creases in 1971, when pay went to from a year. In addition, MPs receive a tax-free expenses allowance of to a year, de- pending on constituency. A salary increase based on inflation would give MPs an increase to at least present plus a 28-per-cent raise of One parliamentary official has estimated that the average MP works about 60 hours a week "and you can add an automatic 20 hours to that for ministers." Most organized workers now work between 32 and 38 hours a week with provisions for over- time. The extra work that goes with a cabinet post is worth more money-a salary plus unlimited expenses on top of the basic Cabinet ministers also have a car allowance. Insemination station set EDMONTON (CP) An ar- tificial insemination station for pigs will be developed near Leduc, about 20 miles south of Edmonton, Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer an- nounced today. Artificial insemination gives hog producers constant access to top quality sires, offering Alberta's pork in- dustry more opportunity to develop improved products for markets throughout Canada and in the United States and Japan, said Dr. Horner. The centre at Leduc will be the first in Western Canada. Alberta-B.C. border bill introduced OTTAWA (CP) A bill in- troduced in the Senate Tues- day would establish-a three- member commission with the power to resolve boundary disputes between British Columbia and Alberta. Portions of the B.C -Alberta boundary are marked on offi- cial maps by a "sinuous boundary shown on the maps as a series of broken lines. Wtdnoday, October 23, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 17 Ivan the Ripper sought MOSCOW (AFP) When night falls in Moscow a vast manhunt begins for a latter- day Ivan the Ripper, a man aged 22 or 23 who has spread panic throughout the Soviet capital by slashing women to death with a dagger. A reliable source said his crimes, reminiscent of the murders in the fog-shrouded streets of London at the turn of the century by the notorious Jack the Ripper, all bear the same gruesome of all ages have been butchered by eight knife thrusts in the lower abdomen. Moscow's time volunteer police- man who patrol the streets of the city have been put on alert. The youthful ripper's murders are believed to be the basis for rumors that 100 or more prisoners have broken out of jail and were led by a sex maniac. The source said Moscow po- lice have pinpointed where the ripper lives but have so far been unable to trap him. The Soviet press has been si- lent on the case and while the druzhniks give a categorical "nyet" (no) to questions about eseapers, they shuffle uneasily when the word maniac is heard. Requests to official sources for information by Agence France-Presse have so far not been answered. It is notable, however, that the druzhniks are out in greater force than usual and that they tend to jump when a man does no more than sneeze behind them.
