Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta McClelland and Stewart opens office at Calgary TORONTO (CP) McClelland and Stewart Ltd., the Toronto book publishing house saved from sale or bank- ruptcy two years ago by a million loan from the Ontario government, has formed_a sub- sidiary company based in Cal- gary. The new firm, McClelland and Stewart West Ltd., will be official publisher of the Glen- bow-Alberta Institute, a Calgary museum. The operation has opened an office in Calgary with a staff of two, a promotion manager and an editorial Scollard, former managing di- rector of the parent company. Jack McClelland, president of the parent company and son of the founder, said: "The objective of McClelland and Stewart West will be to continue the policy of publishing the best Canadian works attain- able." Founded in 1906, the parent firm has been the oldest as well as the largest Canadian book publisher since another firm, Eyerson Press, was sold to United States interests in 1970 In February, 1971, McClelland announced the company was up for sale, but the financial posi- tion was reversed after the pro- vincial government, acting on a recommendation from the royal commission on book publishing, granted a nine-year, loan, interest-free for five jears. The Glenbow-Alberta Institute was founded as the Glenbow Foundation in 1955 by Eric Laf- ferty Harvie, 81-year-old Cal- gary lawyer and rancher, and contains large collactiors of In- dian ethnology and Polynesian art. To date, the museum's publi- cations have been limited to Glenbow, a magazine, and occa- sional booklets and scholarly monographs. But recently it has been ex- panding both its acquisitions and its footage under a plan whereby capital expended is matched dollar-for-dollar by the Alberta government. The announcement said the institute's publications will at least in the early days, fully oc- cupy the new company. Two members of the mu- seum's board, as yet unnamed, sit on the board of the new subsidiary, (along with Mr. McClelland, author Pierre Ber- ton a member of the parent company) and Larry Ritchie, McClelland and Stewart general manager. Prospectors ready to start panning TAYLOR, BC. (CP) Prospectors from as far afield as California and Kansas have converged on this little town of northeastern British Co- lumbia to take part in the in the rolling green hills world's invitational Class A gold panning cnampionslup Murray Hirota, 51, of Azusa, Calif won the cham- pionship but everyone was en- riched by stories of the hun- gry '30s when a battered pan, strong legs and a keen eye could help feed a prospector's family. And with gold selling at an ounce, gold panning is a skill worth polishing. The leading veteran was Jesse Starnes, 77, of Taylor, who first panned gold along the Peace River at the age of 16. One of his most prized pos- sessions is a battered pan hs has used since 1913, its dented JOB OPPORTUNITY We have an opening for a salesman to sell office furniture equipment and supplies Operating f-cm an established firm in Lethbridge.

You can make bread in it, boil water in it, wash out clothes in and, once in a while, pan out a little gold in it In his best year, in the '30s, he panned 27 ounces of gold along the Peace. However, in the hard jears he eked out a living with a trapline and a rifle. One year, with just 21 rifle shells and no money to buy more, Mr. Starnes shot 19 moose and cojote.

This is 500.000 more than the attend- ance during the same period in 1S72. -Thursday, September 6, 1973 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD OTTAWA (CP) By taking a one-minute ride, MPs will shortly be 4ble to relax in a well-appointed lounge and exercise facility. The facility is part of a million renovation of the Con- federation Building which has been converted to offices for some 100 MPs. The eighth-floor facility will include saunas, an exercise room, lounge and beauty par- lor, a public works official said today. He said the exercise facil- ity, with such things as row- ing machines, is in answer to a long-expressed request by many MPs. Acknowledging that the lounge, with chandeliers, large leather covered chesterfields and carpets, is well-appointed, the official said "we'd be crazy to make a lousy lounge." He said he did not have the cost figures for the renova- tion, part of the conversion of the building from public sen- ice use. The building is con- nected with the Centre Block by a special bus service. The work is being done un- der the orders of Speaker Lu- tien Lamoureux. Mr. Lamoureux would not permit pictures of the not- quite-cpmpleted facility today. An official of his office said the Speaker has been turning Bread cost rises despite subsidies TORONTO (CP) The price of a 24-ounce loaf of bread went up six cents in supermarkets to- day to 31 cents and bakers say the increased federal govern- ment subsidy will not prevent another six-cent price hike next month. Frank Mansley, executive of- ficer of the Lakers Production Club of Ontario, said the in- creased 25 cents to on a bushel of milling be as ineffective as "throwing a stone at an ele- phant Economists agree that the new subsidies on wheat and milk and the call for a freeze of gasoline prices are unlikely to cure the inflation ills Douglas Peters, chief econo- mist of the Toronto-Dominion Bank, said there is "really very little the government can do" to combat inflation. But it has acted in areas where it could have some impact, he said. "These are particular meas- ures designed to deal with par- ticular problems and as such I think they will be reasonably Mr. Mansley said. Seymour Friedland of York University said subsidies rather than price controls "make a lot ot sense." down all requests from pho- tographers. Lt.-Col. D. V. Currie, the sergeant-at-arms and the offi- cial in the Speakers office in charge of the project, said the facility is largely a consoli- dation of others scattered about the West Block and the Centre Block. An addition is a beauty par- lor for the five women MPs. In the past there has been a barber shop for men but the women had nothing. In the days of Judy LaMarsh, out- spoken Liberal cabinet minis- ter who complained about the lack of facilities for women members, the barber shop was operated at night as a beauty parlor for women. But Col. Currie said this practice was dropped when the number of women in the Commons dropped to one. Another addition is a bil- liard table. Up to now was only a ping pong table.
