Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, October 25, 1974 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD 3 Dateline Alberta Reserves seen answer EDMONTON (CP) Ex- pansion of Canada's naval reserves would provide an economical answer to the effects of cutbacks in spending in the regular forces, the Edmonton branch of the Naval Officers' Associations of Canada said today. Dr. H. F. Wallace, Ed- monton branch president, said in a news release that if HMCS Nonsuch in Edmonton were recommissioned, about 200 reservists could be added to the naval forces at com- paratively low cost. Dr Wallace said there is a solid nucleus of personnel eager to re-establish Nonsuch, but the volunteers are frustrated by failure of the defence department to take action.

Livingstone pleaded guilty to the attempted rape of a 35- year-old woman last September. Murray Sihvon, crown prosecutor, said Livingstone gained entrance to the women's third-floor suite by offering to make some repairs. The woman suffered minor cuts and bruises. Mr. Sihvon said Livingstone was convicted on a similar charge in Regina in 1968 and was sentenced to three years and three paddle strokes, the last such sentence before a change in the Criminal Code abolished whipping. Glue should be kept away from children OTTAWA (CP) Con- sumer Affairs Minister Andre Ouellet urged parents Thurs- day to heed a warning by Krazy Glue manufacturers that the heavy-duty product should be kept away from children. He made the comment in the Commons after being ask- ed what action his department is taking to restrict use of the glue, which is reported to have sealed shut for one week the eye of an eight-year-old Montreal boy. In response to a question from John Rodriguez Nickel Mr. Ouellet said Krazy Glue labels bear warn- ings that the product is dan- gerous and should not be used by children. The glue, which retails for about a tube, is manufac- tured in Japan for Krazy Glue Inc. of Chicago. It is dis- tributed in Canada by Tel-Pro Products Ltd. of Mississauga. Ont. Designed for use in elec- tronics, the glue also has been used in medicine as a sub- stitute for suturing. Krazy Glue's faststicking action is initiated by contact with a moist surface. Jim Black, director of the consumer affairs department safety products Wednesday the department is looking at the labelling on all glue products and is encour- aging manufacturers of pow- erful, fast-acting glues to use safety closures on their product containers. Spinach generates electricity YOKOHAMA (Reuter) Japanese researchers claimed Thursday they have found a way of using spinach to convert the sun's rays into com- mercial electricity. A research institute of the trade and industry ministry said the discovery opens the way to develop- ment of economic, large- capacity solar batteries. Ultra-pure chlorophyll extracted from spinach and other green vegetables is refined into film that acts as a semi-conductor. When exposed to the sun, it generates electrical power efficiently, the researchers said. The institute believes the technique is cheaper than using existing silicpne solar batteries. Scientists now are working on ways to synthesize pure chlorophyll, which would make the process even cheaper. Great Falls film crew blocked GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) A Great Falls televi- sion station says American Newspaper Guild pickets restrained a news film crew from entering the strikebound Great Falls Tribune. Ken Dunham of KFBB-TV said the striking union had been notified in advance of the news assignment to inter- view newspaper publisher Bill Cordingley.

A guild officer said he did notjbelieve the pickets denied the newsmen access to the building. Career SALES PERSONNEL with opportunity for SERVICO CENTRE 33161st Ave.8.

Alta. (CP) George Woodward's dogs have been granted a tem- porary stay of execution. Mr. Woodward waited out- side his rented farmhouse, 20 miles east of Didsbury, for three hours Thursday but the exterminators failed to keep their appointment to put the 64-year-old pensioner's 100 dogs to sleep. He has been served with an eviction notice by his landlord, farmer Doug Brander. Mr. Brander's lawyer will make a court application in Calgary Mon- day to have Mr. Woodward evicted. Mrs. Brander said Mr. Woodward was asked to leave threemonths ago but he has refused to leave and has not paid his rent. "We don't want his Mrs. Brander said. "We just want him out. We bought the place three years ago and it was a nice little house but now it's ruined. Everyone wants to pass the buck, no one wants to do anything about him." George Maley of the Salva- tion Army said Thursday the owners of Alberta Animal Control, a private pet control company in Red Deer, decid- ed to hold back sending the firm's mobile extermination crew. "They were afraid George might change his mind and they were also worried about all the said Mr. Maley, who had arranged for the destruction of the animals. Mr. Woodward said at one point Thursday that he- probably would sign the release forms to allow the dogs to be destroyed. At another stage in 2 conversa- tion with reports, he insisted he wanted to keep all his dogs and eventually sell them. Asked where he will go if the court grants the eviction, Mr. Woodward said: "On the highway. I've been through the hungry 30s and I can manage on the road. They want to throw me off but it isn't final yet. But if they do get rid of me, they'll have to take everything." In 1969, when he was living near Edmonton, Mr. Woodward was ordered by the Supreme Court to move about 200 dogs off his property. A few of the dogs were sold or given away, but most of them were destroyed by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
