Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Old age pensions raised to OTTAWA (CP) Basic old age pensions will increase to a month in October, Welfare Minister Marc Lalonde announced Tuesday. The increase, the fourth quarterly escalation for pensions and income supplements this year, is designed to help keep pension payments in line with the rising cost of living. Under an indexing formula, the basic pension will rise to from The maximum guaranteed income sup- plement for a single person or married person whose spouse is not a pensioner will rise to from Together with the basic pension this will mean a maximum monthly total of The maximum supplement for a married couple if both are pensioners will increase to each from Added to the basic pension this will give each pensioner for a combined maximum of Drinking and driving answers are sought TORONTO (CP) Which will make you the most im- equivalent amounts of whisky, beer or wine? The answer seems to depend on how fast you drink, how much you drink and what you've had to eat. The degree of impairment following drinking does not de- pend on the type of beverage consumed but on the resulting blood alcohol level, says a re- search paper prepared by On- tario Addiction Research Foundation researchers and Nixon areas investigated WASHINGTON (AP) The special Watergate prosecutor was investigating 10 areas in which former president Richard Nixon may have been personally.- involved, White House officials disclosed Tuesday. A memorandum prepared by the staff of special prosecutor Leon Jaworski and made public by the White House said the areas range from Nixon's tax deductions to the handling of campaign contributions by his close friend Bebe Rebozo. Ford granted Nixon a "full, free and absolute" pardon Sunday for any federal offenses during his presiden- cy. After listing the 10 areas, the memo concludes: "None of these matters at the moment rises to the level of our ability to prove even a probable criminal violation by Mr. Nixon but I thought you ought to know which of the pending investigations were even remotely connected to Mr. Nixon. Of course, the Watergate cover-up is a sub- ject of a separate memo- randum." The 10 matters which were "still under investigation in this office and may prove to have some direct connection to activities in which Mr. Nix- on is personally involved" were listed as: deductions relating to the gift of pre-presidential papers; STILL SELLING FOR LESS STERN'S CUT-RATE FURNITURE 314 3rd St. S.

A quarterly report shows the fund now has million cash on hand, but owes debts of million. presented Tuesday to the sixth International Conference on Alcohol, Drugs and Traffic Safety here. Another study, done at Bio- Research Laboratories Ltd. in Pointe Claire, Que., found that under certain conditions whisky drinkers become more impaired than beer drinkers consuming equivalent amounts of alcohol. A. E. LeBlanc. a researcher for the Ontario study, said his study was carried out under the sort of conditions likely to be found in real life. The sub- jects consumed their beverages over a four-hour period, beginning one hour after a standard light meal. In the Quebec study, sub- jects who had fasted consum- ed slightly more than half as much alcohol as the subjects in the Ontario study, but gulped it down in 25 minutes. On another subject, the con- ference was told that the low- ering of the drinking age in Ontario to 18 from 21 in 1971 led to a significant increase in the number of young people in London, Ont., who were in- volved in car crashes. Paul Whitehead, a sociology professor at the University of Western Ontario in London, said the legislative change not only resulted in an increase in alcohol-involved collisions for 18-to-20-year-old drivers but also for 16-and 17-year-old drivers. It was found in the period after the lower age took effect that 18-year-olds had 339 per cent more alcohol-related crashes, 19-year-olds had 346 per cent more and 20-year- olds had 156 per cent more, said Prof. Whitehead. Sixteen-and 17-year-olds, who may have been influenced by a more lenient attitude toward young people drinking, had an increase of 162 per cent. A control group of 24-year- olds, who were not affected by the reduced drinking age, had no increase in alcohol-related crashes after the age limit was lowered, he said. The conference was told that a study of 267 traffic fatalities in the Boston area showed that 139 of them in- volved alcohol or drugs. Of that number, 79 involved alcohol alone and 13 were at- tributed to marijuana alone. Twenty-five of the drivers responsible for fatal accidents involving themselves, other drivers, passengers or pedestrians had been using alcohol and marijuana prior to the accidents.
