(AP) About in cash and jewels were stolen by six masked bandits who issued engraved invitations for about 100 ringside patrons to attend a party after the All-Quarry heavyweight fight here Mon- day night, police said Tues- day. After the guests arrived, the hosts ordered them to a base- ment to disrobe, robbed them and then fled with two women as hostages, police said. As each group of persona arrived Monday night at a Eorthside address, police said, they were met at the door by a woman. As they stepped in- side, a bandit waering a ski mask and carrying a sawed- off shotgun greeted them. The guests then were taken into tie basement where they were forced to disrobe and lie down on the floor, officers said. Jewelry and cash were taken. One of the victims told po- lice that people were "pited on top of each' other at one point." Police said among the vic- tims was a New York detec- tive, Andrew West, who said he lost in cash, a diamond ring and his badge. When the robbers fled, po- lice said they took two women as hostages. The hostages were released a short time later. Most victims were "too embarrassed to file a com- the police said.

Please reply to THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD, BOX 27 Prague Charms The Visitor CP Rail To Receive Freight Advantage In Passenger Cut OTTAWA (CP) CP Rail's proposal to reduce service on its transcontinental passenger train, The Canadian, would give the railway a decided advan- tage in freight delivery, the Ca- nadian transport commission was told here. Canadian Goods Go On Sale At Macy's OTTAWA (CP) Canadian clothing and leather goods val- ued at million will go on sale in Macy's stores in New York City in a two-week promotion starting Thursday, the industry, trade and commerce depart- ment announced today. The promotion, the largest of its kind mounted by an Ameri- can department store, was ar- ranged by Macy's with the co- operation of the department. Large 'areas of main floors and display windows in the Macy's stores will be turned over to Canadian goods with the slogan Discover a New Fashion Frontier. A maple leaf symbol will be used in windows, aisles and on garments. John Walters, legislative rep- resentative with the Brother- hood of Locomotive Engineers, said daily "fast CP freights" between Toronto and Vancouver now meet CP passenger trains six times. If CP Rail is allowed to cut its passenger service on The Cana- dian to three days a week from seven, he said, the number of meetings would be substantially reduced and freight service im- proved. Each meeting meant trains had to slow down or stop, he added. Mr. Walters made his re- marks during the second day of hearings on a CP Rail plan to reduce passenger service on The Canadian in the fall, winter and spring months, trim the number of cars in each train and raise coach-class and all-in- clusive fares by up to 25 per cent. Mr. Walters said CP Rail would have a distinct advantage in freight over Canadian Na- tional Railways if the plan is approved. The frequency of meetings slowed both freight and passenger trains. Experience shows, he said, that shippers choose the railway that moves freight, "even 15 minutes faster." Maurice Wright, counsel for the Canadian Railway Labor Association, asked what effect CP Rail's plan would have on CNR passenger service. Mr. Walters, a locomotive en- gineer by trade, said some.pas- sengers would stop travelling by rail altogether if the plan took effect but others would move to the CNR trains: CNR might then find it had to increase passenger service, which would further hinder freight deliveries and enhance the advantage of CP Rail, Mr. Walters said. Bank Of Japan Slashes Rate TOKYO (Reuter) The Bank of Japan cut its official discount rate today to six per cent from 6.25 per cent, effective Wednes- day.
