Death Aircraft Boxed In Canyon ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOUSE (CP) A department of trans- port investigator says a light crashed in w e s t-central Alber- ta Aug. 22 when it "apparently got boxed in a canyon where the terrain outclimbed the ca- pabilities of the aircraft." Killed in the crash of the wheel equipped Cessna 182 were Martin Anderson, 49, and Hoyce Enghoj, both of Red Deer. Mr. Anderson's daughter, Christine Bailes of Calgary, and ths pilot, Vance Molsberry, about 45, of Calgary. Two bodies were removed from the area by helicopter Monday and RCMP were to re- move the other two bodies Tuesday. The D.O.T. investigator said in an interview he is satisfied equipment malfunction did not cause the crash. He said the pilot probably at- tempted to bank the aircraft to gain altitude when it became boxed in the narrow canyon "but was unsuccessful." HIGH SPEED The aircraft crashed into the canyon wall on a tributary to Ranger Creek at what appear- ed to be high speed, knocking down several large trees. The tail was separated from ihe body of the aircraft and the wings were folded under the fuselage. The cockpit area, whers the bodies were found, was almost intact but some YOU MAY BE YOUNGER THAN YOU THINK Forget all the myths about growing old!

Business Spotlight Canadian Shoe Industry Shows Signs Of Wear KITCHENER Ont. (CP) Canada's shoe industry is show- ing distressing signs of wear this year. President Ross Hahn of the Shoe Manufacturers Association of Canada says the industry faces certain extinction from competition offered by low- priced foreign footwear unless the government setps in. Distress signals are apparent for the million-a-year in- dustry. These include a one- per-cent decline in footwear pro- duction between 1956 and 1969, despite a one-third increase in population in the same period, a drop in employment to persons in 1968 from in 1966, and closing of 15 shoe fac- tories in the last 12 months. Mr. Hahn, 53, vice-president, manufacturing, and a director of Greb Industries Ltd. of Kitch- ener, says foreign imnorts will likely account for half of Can- ada's shoe market this year. In 1956. total per capita con- sumption of footwear in Canada was 4.1 pairs, of which 3.6 were produced domestically. By 1965 per capita consumption was 4.9 pairs but the Canadian share had dropped to 2.6. Low-income Asian and Euro- pean countries pose the greatest threat to Canada's footwear trade, according to Mr. Hahn. He says Iron Curtain countries will sell at a loss to acquire hard cash. Work boot makers, says Mr. Hahn, were the first to feel the pinch of such imports. Several countries took turns shipping lowrpriced products to the Cana- dian market. The first was Czechoslovakia. Federal government rulings raised low valuations for sales Important Discovery Made In Technology Field MURRAY HILL, N.J. (AP) A laser smaller than a grain of sand and which can be oper- ated for up to a million hours on power produced by flash light batteries was announced here by the Bell Telephone System. Scientists at Bell Labora tories said the laser could be as important an advance light technology as the transis tor was in the field of sound Once under production, the laser could be made for a few dollars, they said. A laser is an electronic de vice which emits an intense and highly directional beam of light. Stnce lasers were devel- oped about 10 years ago they have been put to valuable use in industrial, medical ant space technology, though on limited scale. Until now lasers have been able to operate for only frac- tions of a second because of the amount of heat they generate, Bell scientists explained. But the new laser can operate con- tinuously at normal room tem- peratures for up to a million hours. So the new device may make it possible to develop new com- munications systems on pre- viously unexpected scales, the scientists speculated. One use could be allowing one person to see another on the telephone. Dr. Rudolph Kompfner, asso- HURLBURT AUCTION SERVICE LTD.

Italian Paper Becomes CPs 103rd Member TORONTO (CP) Corrfere Canadese, Canada's first Ital- ian-language daily newspaper, today became the 103rd mem- ber of The Cnadian Press. Corriere Canadese was admit- ted to CP membership, effective Sept. 2, at the news co-opera- tive's meeting last April. At that meeting, changes in the CP bylaws were approved to prov- ide admission to the member- ship of newspapers publishing in languages other than English and French. Founded hi 1954. Corriere Oanadese has been a daily since September, 1969, after having appeared previously three days a week. The evening paper ap- pears five days weekly and is mblished by Dan lanniizzi who jecomes the paper's CP mem- ber. In Its first year as a daily, Corriere Canadese received CP news and photo services under contract, rather than as a mem- >er of the co-operative. CP's membership will be in- creased again, to 104, with the iddition Nov. 1 of the Wallace- )urg News, a western Ontario daily. U.S. Railway Fares Raised WASHINGTON (AP) The Interstate Commerce Commis- sion has given final approval to a 10-per-cent increase in passen- ger fares by 21 U.S. railways, effective today. The boost is the eighth granted by the ICC since Dec. 1, 967. Most have been for five Kr cent, and not all railways >enefitted from each raise. Among beneficiaries of the iatest increase is the financially troubled Perm Central Railroad, which operates commuter serv- ce and long-haul passenger routes along the East Coast and inland as far as Chicago. tax and duties and halted this flow. Poland made ths next pitch, and similar action was taken after the industry petitioned the governmnet. But boot manufac- turers then were faced with competition from Romania. Mr. Hahn says confusion about what constitutes injury and difficulty in establishing it contribute to a time lag between the onset of unfair competition and government action. "Going out of business is a good indication of Mr. Hahn observes, "but it's too late then for remedies."

The pon- tificial Gendarmes, whose pay was raised last month to lire a month from lire say they have been treated worse than other Vati- can employees who received raises backdated to July, 1969. tion of federal sales tax. Its most important request, however, is for a quota system for footwear imports. Foreign shoe makers have one major advantage over their Canadian supplies of inexpensive labor. In 1968, the base wage rate in the industry ranged between 40 cents and an hour in Japan and 45. and 60 cents in Italy. Canadian manufacturers were paying between and an Ixnir during the same period. Imported footwear compares favorably with Canadian-oro- duced products, says Mr. Han. "Although not all of superlative value, it is, generally speaking, well made." He says the Canadian indus- try can strengthen its competi- tive position internationally by a more intensive pursuit of design excellence. "Creative he says, "is what sells shoes." Open Fires Ban In Park Lifted BANFF, Alta. (CP) A ban on open fires in Banff National Park was lifted Tuesday by Park Superintendent K. S. Kun.

Establishment Of Alberta Energy Board To Be Studied EDMONTON (CP) Pre- mier Harry Strom today an- nounced he has established a cabinet committee to investi- gate the possibility of a pro- vincial energy board. The committee will consider the broader aspects of the man- agement of all the province's energy resources and the rela- tionship between activities of several existing departments and agencies, Mr. Strom said in a prepared statement. Among the departments and agencies involved are the Oil and Gas Conservation Board, the Water Resources Division of the Agriculture Department and the Alberta Power Com- mission which has been without a chairman since March when J. G. MacGregor retired. A government spokes man said the proposed board prob- ably could exercise powers in the resource areas of coal and water for hydro-electric power development. Dry Spell Broken SYDNEY, Australia (AP) Following the driest winter for 75 years the first official day of Australia's spring arrived with rain, hail and snow. In some areas of Sydney rainfall topped one inch, one-third of the total rainfall in the last three months. He said the cabinet commit- tee is expected to report to the full cabinet later this year and, if the new energy board is rec- ommended, legislation have to be prepared. Mr. Strom said while the committee would study the broad aspects of energy re- source management, it would give "specific eonsiderattan" to the desireability of creating provincial energy board.
