Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24, 1174 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD 27 Quebec probe witnesses tell of verbal threats By USA BINSSE MONTREAL (CP) A business agent for a union af- filiated with the Quebec Federation of Labor and a un- ion member said Wednesday they had received verbal threats from Robert Me- loche, former chairman of Lo- cal 791 of the International Union of Operating Engineers Gaetan Gauthier, 26, and Robert Beauchamp, an IUOE member, told an inquiry into construction union freedoms that Mr. Meloche had visited them in jail Sunday to tell them to corroborate his testimony to be given the next day. Gauthier said Mr. Meloche, now the IUOE business man- ager, reminded them "that you're not alone, there are others behind you." Both men said they under- stood "others" to mean their families. Beauchamp, still in jail, is the father of two chil- dren. Gauthier, who also has QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC Dental Mechanic 303 5th StrMt South Metcalf Building PHONE 3a8'7684 two children, is currently on parole. Mr. Meloche, during his testimony Monday, said he had given to five union members -because they threatened his life. NO THREATS MADE Gauthier said that in reality, "there were no threats against Meloche or anyone else." He said the deal providing the men with financial assistance for their families was made at a meeting of the union executive in the presence of lawyers, and that "there was no way that any of us would be foolish enough to make any threats whatsoever." Mr. Meloche said Monday the IUOE had paid for "humanitarian" reasons to five members after they were sentenced to three years in penitentiary on charges related to labor violence last year at Mirabel, site of a new international airport 26 miles north of Montreal. Testimony has shown that Gauthier received and Beauchamp after their convictions. They and three colleagues, who were also convicted and received money, had fought BUILD THESE BEAUTIFUL CLOCKS Now at BIG SAYINGS!

WANTS REPORT Judge Robert Cliche, in- quiry chairman, instructed commission lawyer Jean-Luc Dutil after Gauthier and Beauchamp's testimony to prepare a report on the inci- dent and present it to the justice department. The inquiry was set up last March following a series of violent labor incidents at the LG-2 construction site at the James Bay hydroelectric pro- ject in northwestern Quebec. Gauthier and Beauchamp also told the inquiry that Mr. Meloche had forced the men to plead guilty, "although we knew we had a chance." They said Mr. Meloche told them it was "best for us if we pleaded guilty, everything had been fixed up" and they would get no more than a fine. Robert Mainville and Julien Masse, two other IUOE mem- bers charged with the Mirabel labor violence, later corrobo- rated Gauthier and Beau- champ's testimony. Amerongen unopposed EDMONTON (CP) Legislative Speaker Gerry Amerongen was chosen as the Progressive Conservative party candidate in his Ed- monton Meadowlark con- stituency. He was unopposed in seeking the nomination. What a yolker Federal Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan was non-plussed when he was presented with an egg on a silver platter by a man dressed as a chicken at Windsor, Ont. It was a reminder of Canada's rotten- egg hassle. Glue makers in sticky situation OTTAWA (CP) Makers of powerful fast- acting glues are in a bit of a sticky situation with the federal consumer affairs department. The department's product safety branch is urging manufacturers of heavy-duty glue to use safety closures on their product containers. The re- quest follows treatment of an eight-year-old Montreal boy who had an eye sealed shut for a week after an ac- cident with Krazy Glue. The glue's fast-sticking action is initiated by con- tact with a moist surface. The product, originally designed for use in electronics, is manufac- tured in Japan for Krazy Glue Inc. of Chicago. It is distributed in Canada by Tel-Pro Products Ltd. of Mississauga, Ont. The product safety branch is looking at the labelling on all glues, Jim Black, director of the branch, said Wednesday. He added that no fault has been found in the labelling of Krazy Glue. The product's tube and cardboard packaging both bore prominent warnings that the glue is dangerous and should be kept out of the reach of children. Labels also advised users to avoid contact with the eyes and skin and included instructions to be followed in case of accidents.

Telephone 328-9231 With less than two weeks before the congressional elec- tions of Nov. 5, reports from almost every corner of the country say voter apathy is dismaying candidates of both parties. Not surprisingly, in the first elections' after Watergate, the Republicans are reported to be having the hardest job stirring up the ranks., _. -_ There was widely-acknowl- edged irony in the fact that the largest and most enthusiastic crowds Ford encountered on his latest campaign swing came when he crossed the border into Mexico to meet President Luis Echeverria. Barely came to a well- publicized airport rally for Ford at Lincoln, Neb. Despite heavy padding with students, a auditorium in Oklahoma City showed rows of empty seats for the president. And organizers of a breakfast with Ford sold less than 60 some of the ticket buyers not turning up. "Off-year" elections, such as this year's, traditionally attract less interest among the American electorate. Sub- stantially fewer than half the' persons of voting age usually go to the polls. Off-year elections are limited to all 435 seats in the House of Representatives, one-third of the Senate seats and the usual maze of contests for governor, state legislature, county and city posts. But the presidency is not at stake, and without that crucial race to stir up passion, off- year elections have a tough job rousing interest This year's election may set a modern record for in- difference. The turnout, based on recent public pulse-taking, could be lower even than the 42.2 per cent recorded in 1954, the lowest in the last 20 years. "Nobody's been paying any attention to complained James Erwin, Republican nominee in the closely- contested face for governor of Maine, and his observation is echoed from virtually every state. Observers and poll-takers draw op a remarkably con- sistent list of probably causes for the voter indifference. Primarily, they see 1974 as a year hi which the only real election state of the American a problem for which there is no clearly perceived remedy from either Democrats or Republicans. With inflation above 10 per cent for the first time since the Second World War and increasing talk of a foil-scale depression in the air, there is little talk now of issaes which once threatened to dominate the Watergate revelations, the resignation of Richard Nixon as president and Ford's subsequent pardon of Nixon. VLA replacement hinted by cabinet ministers OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment is working on a re- placement of the soon-to-die Veterans Land Act, two minis- ters have indicated. Urban Affairs Minister Barney Danson, answering a question from Jack Marshall George's- St. Barbe) in the Commons Wednesday, said he is consid- ering a program that would be of special benefit to veterans.
