Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Thuraday, Octobir 1971 THI UTHBRIErCE HERAID 27 Former U.S. Supreme Court justice Arthur Goldberg has ac- cused former president Lyndon Johnson of inaccuracy in re- counting his appointment to 1965 as U.S. ambassador to Die United Nations. Goldberg said in a statement at Washington that "nothing could be further from the truth" than Johnson's suggestion that he was bored on the Supremo Court and actively solicited the UN post after Adlai Stevenson died in July 1955. Johnson's version of what happened is contained in his memoirs Vantage Point: Per- spectives on the Presidency 1963-1969, which is being serial- ized in several newspapers. The relevant section said Har- vard Professor John Kenneth Galbraith told Johnson he be- lieved Goldberg "would step down from his position on the Supreme Court to take a job that would .be more challenging to at the Nations or as secret a r y of health, education and welfare. Johnson said the news sur- prised him. "I was aware that Goldberg, an activist, became restless on the bench from time to time, but I could not imagine him giving up his seat on the Supreme Court." Alexander Sinclair, 69, a for- mer director of recreation, died in St. Catharines, Ont. A native of Scotland, Mr. Sin- clair was raised in West e r n Canada and held municipal rec- GOLDBERG Accuses Johnson reation posts in Winnipeg. Mose Jaw, Sask., and Peter- borough, Ont., before coming to St. Catharines. He retired in 1967. Alexei KosyRin of the Soviet Union said that world leaders should spend more time drink- ing vodka and dining together and think less about war. He expressed himself on the virtues of conviviality at a lun- cheon given in his honor by Defence Minister Donald Mac- donald. "I think it would be best if ministers could meet more of- ten, have lunch together may- be drink vodka together and maybe think less about fight- said the 67-year-old pre- mier. "I think this would be cheap- er for everyone." Sergei 1. Kavtaraclze, a Geor- Sheila Scott, the record-set- gian revolutionary who worked ting woman pilot, finally has! with Joseph Stalin, was purged passed her test for an aulo j by Stalin and then rehabilitated driver's licence on her fourth in 1940, has died in Tbilisi at try in 12 years. "It is terribly difficult to ad- just to driving a car when you are accustomed to using your feet on rudder Miss Scott said after passing the test in London. "I wanted to haul back on the steering column and fly away." Miss Scott, 44, holds 100 solo flying records. While in Canada Premier the age of 86. He was a member of the un- derground movement with Sta- lin before the revolution in 1917 and served as premier of Geor- gia, Stalin's homeland, in 1921. During Stalin's purges of the mid-1930s, Kavtaradze was sent to Siberian labor camps. After his release in 1940, he was re- habilitated and assigned to the commissariat of foreign affairs. Kavtaradze retired in 1955. Some consumer items cheaper OTTAWA (CP) Consumer prices have risen 35 per cent in the last 10 years, but there are some things on the market that are cheaper today than they were to 1961. For the hard-pressed family budgeter, they include headache tablets. Statistics Canada bases its consumer price index on 1961 prices, assigning an index fig- ure of 100 to prices prevailing then for about 300 goods and services that figure prominently Mental health legislation study urged CALGARY (CP) City psy- chiatrists want Alberta mental health legislation revised to keep pace with modern treat- ment needs. Dr. Keith Pcarce, professor of psychiatry at the University of Calgary and appointed spokesman for his colleagues, made the suggestion to the Cal- gary and Region Hospital Plan- ning Council. He said present legislation was written for an era when almost all psychiatric treat- ment was given in a few large centralized institutions, all run directly by government. There is a need, he said, to improve methods of compulsory treatment and to provide hos- pitals and physicians legal pro- tection. City psychiatrists want com- pulsory treatment for a men- tally ill patient who can't give informed consent for the care he needs. They also recom- mended an appeal board lo en- sure the patient's rights are protected when the action be- comes necessary. Stabbing case EDMONTON (CP) Vimy Ross Sevright alias Cote, 24, of Edmonton was committed to sland trial for non-capital murder when he appeared in provincial Judges' court. He Li charged in the stabbing Aug. 6 of Orvilla Cote, tlio oi Edmonton. in the spending habits of aver- age-income families. The latest complete analysis, made public Tuesday, shows that mortgage interest rates and the prices of theatre tickets have double since then, to in- dexes of 200 or greater. Some other things have almost dou- bled, such as automobile insur- ance, personal property insur- ance, and wages for household help. But some food prices, some women's apparel, some phar- maceuticals and some home en tertainment equipment have come down in price since 1961. The general index for food consumed at home was 132.4 in August, about one third higher than in 1961. But the index for cured pork was down to 98.6, and the index for eggs in Au- gust was 83.9. SUPPLY OVER-ABUNDANT These price declines appar- ently resulted from an over- abundant supply of those prod- ucts on the market. Home appliance prices have been steady or generally lower for several years. Industry sources have attributed price reductions for such things as stoves and refrigerators to im- prove productivity in the indus- try. Appliance prices in August this year were about 3.5 per cent lower than in 1961. Fashion and competition ap- roar to have resulted in lower prices for women's hosiery, with prices Uiis year down about 10 per cent from 1961. Be- cause of short skirts, women have been buying higher priced panty-hose, while the price for ordinary full-length hosiery has declined. Prices for headache tablets, vitamins and prescription phar- maceulicals are all lower than they were 10 years ago. This is believed to be the result of both competition within the industry and price reduction pressures by federal and provincial gov- ernments. While the index of pharma- ceuticnls in August was only %.9, compared with 100 in 1961, the index of health care gener- ally was 142.5, higher than the over-all consumer price index. The main Ihrust in the health care index has been in doctor's fees, now generally covered by health insurance schemes, and dentists' fees. The index of the cost of an extraction in August was 181.a, more than 80 per cent higher than in 1961.
