Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Ottotw 21, 1770 THE IITHMIDOI North Area Snowstorm Caused ManyProblems EDMONTON (CP) The area's worst October snow- storm in 48 years Sunday and Monday brought problems for many. A grandmother and a two- month old baby, stranded with- out heat or milk, made do with- out them, 'i A {arm wife'waded through drifting snow without ter her car stalled, and got a ride home aboard a highway grader. Two campers, drenched when their tent caved in, got help at an already hard-press- ed farm house. The farm home of the Van Sickles, 20 miles southeast of Edmonton, was isolated without power for heat and'without any milk for the two month old baby, atone with his grandmother, Sybil Van Sickle. The baby's parents were caught by the storm in Edmon- ton and were unable to return because of blocked roads. The grandmother, however, Medic Specialists Plan To Pull Out TORONTO (CP) Dr. George' Wlodek of Montreal, president of the Quebec Medical Association, said here many Quebec specialists are planning to leave the than is apparent now. Beer Take-Out Forms Dropped EEGINA (CD-People buy- ing cartons of beer to take out of a beverage room in Sas- katchewan no longer have to sign a take-out form, the pro- vincial liquor licensing com- mission announced today. The beer now may be order- ed verbally. Previously, buy- ers had to fill out a form specifying what they wanted and giving an address and a signature. In liquor stores, in Saskatch- ewan, people fill out forms say- ing what they want but a re- quirement calling for signa- tures and addresses was drop- ped about three months ago. Sign Reactor Pact ROME (AP) Canada and Italy have signed a five-year collaboration agreement provid- ing for the exchange of informa- tion on heavy-water nuclear re- actors. The accord was signed by Carlo Salvetti, vice-president of Italy's National Committee for Nuclear Energy, and G. L. Gray, president of the Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. In Toronto at the invitation of the Ontario Medical Association to report on the present position of the Quebec physicians, Dr. Wlodek said tbs specialists will not renew their fight with the government over medical insur- ance, while the political situa- tion remains unstable. The specialists went on strike Oct. 8, except for emergency service, in 38 of Quebec's 250 hospitals. But most had re- turned by Oct. 19. The provincial government passed a bill Oct. 16 setting se- vere penalties for doctors who did not return to work, but Dr. Wlodek said tlu's was not the reason for the return. They went back to work be- cause they were told violence might erupt that would demand full medical attention. He said the doctors now feel the government took advantage of them by using lira climate of tension to "ram something down our throats we wouldn't otherwise have accepted." Noticeable signs of doctors leaving the province will not be seen until next summer, Dr. Wlodek said, because it takes time for them to relocate. Dr. Wlodek said Quebec doc- tors were threatened and in some cases roughed up as they manned emergency services during the strike. He said he received several threatening phone calls at his unlisted home phone in early morning hours. He moved: his wife and four children out of the province as a safety measure, but soon after his dog was poisoned. kept the baby warm and tore up sheets to make diapers. A friend travelled to the farm house later by snowmobile, ar- riving about lunch-time with a fresh supply of milk and some disposable diapers. The grandmother had dealt with another problem earlier. Two Edmonton youths, Harry Hoffman, 16, and Don Robert- son, 15, had been .camping near the Van Sickle home when the storm started. "First, it they said. Then it snowed. Then the tent caved in under half a ton of snow." Five hours later they present- ed themselves at the Van Sickle Siome, camp stove and lantern in hand. The grandmo'her let them in, gave them dry clothes and put them to work. Zelda Doell of South Cooking Lake, suffered a more numb- ing experience. Her car was caught in adrift on a lonely rural road. She left the car and hiked towards the main highway, losing her shoes in the process. Cold, tired and shoeless, Mrs. Doell was eventually rescued by a passing highway grader. She spent the next eight hours huddled in the cabin of the slow-moving machine. S'ne was let off at her front door but found her home was without power and just as cold as the cab of the grader.
