CP Rail wants to lay about 40 miles of new track to pro- vide by-passes for westbound trains on strenuous uphill sec- tions of its line between Lake Louise, Alta., and Shuswap Lake in the British Columbia interior. Recent peak traffic over this section of line numbered 21 trains a day headed towards Vancouver.

The railway is concerned about four sections of track where westbound trains have to surmount grades of up to 2.2 per cent. As 65 per cent of loaded traffic is moving towards the coast it is this flow which is of key concern when the single-track railway is being pressured. The uphill grades force the railway to limit the size of Inquetst' ordered An inquest has been order- ed into the death of Emily Mrazek, 43, of Shaughnessy who died Thursday from in- juries suffered two days earl- ier in a farming accident. Mrs. Mrazek was working Tuesday near Carmangay, 35 miles north of Lethbridge, when her clothing apparently became caught in a power takeoff. Coroner Dr. J. E, Morgan has not set a date for the inquest. trains and in one place to cut in extra motive power to push the trains westwards. Further, the grades slow trains, thereby lengthening the time west bound trains take to move between passing loops where they can slide by eastbound traffic. At a rough estimate the four sections of double track proposed should boost the number of trains the line can handle by 33 per cent. Increased weights of trains should yield a further boost. Because of the mountainous terrain the new track will not exactly parallel the existing line and in places will be as much as one mile from the present mainline. The new railway tracks are to be engineered to have ruling grade of only one per cent, permitting faster uphill runs. As a further boost to speed CP Rail plans to spice booster engines into the middle of pot- ash, sulphur and wheat trains at present hauled only by bead-end power. This would extend the pres- ent practice of using mid- train power on massive unit coal trains moving over the CP Rail system from the Kootenay to Tidewater near Vancouver. CP rail plans to lay new track between: Louise, Alta., and Stephen, which is just west of the Kicking Horse Pass. Six miles of new trackage will obviate a grade of 1.6 per cent. and the five' mile-long Connaught tunnel in Glacier National Park. The 'Hat mayor sent money for hijacker's defence present grade is 2.2 per cent and 19 miles of by-pass is called for. and Clanwilli- am, where the existing one steepens to 1.6 per cent. The new trackage will stretch for four miles. west of Salmon Arm, and Notch Hill, witch is southwest of blind Bay on Shuswap Lake. An 11-miio detour will avoid a 1.6 per cent grade. The scheme, conditional on CTC consent, could be com- pleted sometime between 1978 and 1980. So far the railway has only approached the CTC for con- sent to build new trackage between Tappen nd Notch. Hill. It awaits a decision on this and in anticipation has secured options to purchase about 25 per cent of the right- of-way it will need. Elsewhere land is held most- ly by the provincial govern- ment and the national parks branch. They have been noti- fied of the railway's intent. 3 GLASS LINED WATER HEATERS S3.20 INSTALLED Phone 328-2176 Medicine Hat Mayor Harry Veiner has already sent funds to a Jerusalem newspaper hijacker.

He said he was against hijacking "100 per cent" but that Tou- mi took over the plane to dramatize a wish by some Arabs for peace. The hijacker deserved some help for that, Mr. Veiner said. Today, the mayor said he had arranged with The Jer- usalem Post to hire a lawyer for the hijacker in the tele- gram to the newspaper. Seat-belt campaign cancelled A campaign aimed at pro- moting the use of seat belts in cars has been called off for lack of support from cities and towns, according to Kea Mills, vice president of the Alberta Safety Council. Mr. Mils says the lade of response was probably due to poor timing because commu- nities and services clubs were probably into vacation time when they heard about the campaign. The council 5s planning to spearhead a new campaign in May, 1974.

Displays tents Mud didn't deter 850 from Brooks opening By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer mud, food, flower and vegetable dis- plays, films, discussions, demonstrations and a build- ing opening ceremony was the long order of the day for 850 visitors to the Alberta H o r ticidtunal Research Cen- tre field day here Friday. Response from the public was "beyond all expecta- tions" as "Alberta Agriculture Minister Hugh Horner clip- ped a red ribbon to officially open the Augustus Griffin Building at the hub of the centre. The n e w administration building for the center's 46 permanent employees and 60 seasonal workers was named in honor of Augustus Griffin. Mr. Griffin was manager of the department of natural .re- sources for CP Rail in 1942 and had worked since 1919 for the formation of a testing sta- tion in the Brooks area. The test station he helped to organize was later to be- come the present horticul- tural research centre. The building will house of- fices for 12 professional re- searchers and the center's di- rector, Art Olson. A library and administration offices are included in the square foot structure, valued at 000. Dr. Horner thinks it is a good idea to name govern- ment buildings after pioneers Attendance f drops Attendance this summer at the Nikka Yuko Garden was down about persons from a year ago. The garden hai afoout visitors during July and August this year as com- pared with about visi- tors one year ago. The drop this year, man- ager V. E. Meech says, was due to the high cost of travel and the gas shortage which brought fewer tourists to the gardens from the lower two- tliirds of the United States. Number of Americans vis- iting the gardens was down significantly this year, said Mr. Meech, but the number of Canadian visitors dropped off as well. Starting Tuesday garden hours change to 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. from the summer hours of 8 a.m.. to p.m. Red markers stolen About 20 flourescent red marker cones were stolen early Friday morning from.

He said the new facl'ity will help Alberta expand the vege- table industry, something he termed "a must." Following his talk, Dr. Horner, joined by Augustus Griffin's son, George, of Chi- cago, planted a new tree in front of the building. Because of threaten ing weather conditions during the previous day, three large tents had been erected to house a display by district home economists from the Alberta Department of Agri- culture, a complete display of all produce grown and tested at the research centre and the food trays, including sam- ples of centre-grown produce and cob on the corn for the visiting public. Displays of Japanese flow- ers, demonstrations of flower arranging and tree pruning and access to the hundreds of square feet of green houses entertained the public throughout the entire day.
