Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, September 13, 1974 New airplane Time Air's new Fail-child F-27 twin engine turbo prop aircraft, scheduled to go into service by the end of October, awaits customs clearance at Kenyon Field. The aircraft, manufactured in Holland and purchased from an airline in Dallas, Texas, seats 36 passengers and can carry up to pounds of baggage and cargo. Richard Barton, vice-president of Time Air, said the F-27 will be used for commuters. Time Air has also purchased two Shorts 30-seater twin engine turbo prop aircraft, with an option for a third, from the Northern Ireland plane builder. These aircraft, worth million each, are expected to be in service here by 1976. Consumer laws need more teeth to cope with present problems Consumer affairs legisla- tion needs more teeth if it is to be effective, officials of the Alberta Federation of Labor (AFL) said Thursday. The Alberta department of consumer affairs also needs a larger staff, said Eugene Mitchell, executive secretary of the federation. The AFL has formed a general council on consumer affairs and local committees will be activated in Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Red Deer, Calgary and Ed- monton, he said. One activity will be to investigate problems of con- sumers and refer them to federal or provincial departments if possible, he said. "I'm almost certain we're going to find the legislation is totally said Mr. Mitchell. Mike Shields, a research representative for the "KERNEL KUTTEH" Strips kernels off corn at one stroke. Circular cutter expands to fit all size ears Priced At 279 Call Housewares 327-5767 DOWNTOWN federation, said the council and committees are not to replace a government service. They are intended to help im- prove the service, he said. The AFL is not trying to be critical but is trying to im- prove a service. The department's staff is centred in Edmonton and Calgary. Outlying areas cannot com- municate easily with the department, other than through its post office box, said Mr. Shields. He said the attitude of caveat emptor, let the buyer beware, stiM seems to pervade the field of consumerism. If consumers are not intelligent shoppers, the best result yet obtainable seems to be return- ing the goods and getting their money back. "The legislation doesn't provide too much of a punch.. education has to be the main Gas plant may be built near Turin TABER (HNS) The prospect of a gas processing plant near Turin came closer to reality when the Taber Municipal District council gave its approval to a land subdivision on the northwest quarter of section 19, township 12. range 18, just inside the Taber MD boundary. The plant promoters. Gascome Projects Ltd. will collect gas from a number of shallow capped wells. he said. Consumer Affairs Minister Bob Dowling has the wrong at- titude, said Mr. Mitchell. The minister did not speak at the last AFL convention, where consumerism was a major theme, he said, though the director of consumer affairs did speak. When Mr. Dowling was ask- ed in the legislature about high anti-freeze prices, his reply was that the govern- ment could not prosecute free enterprise, said Mr. Mitchell. The anti-freeze price is one of the federation's con- sumerism complaints, he said. The anti-freeze manufacturers say there is no shortage, but little is available, he said. Someone must be creating a shortage, said Mr. Mitchell. He also said Lethbridge is in a sugar-growing area, but con- sumers here pay high price for sugar when it is cheaper in Montreal. Other problems include con- sumer credit rates' not being 'advertised and rent increases. Consumer credit rates are not always advertised, even though some have gone to 24 per cent from 18 per cent, said Mr. Shields. E.R. McFarland dies at 70 in B.C.

News staff quit Student chief "puzzled" by charges The University of Lethbridge student council hasn't and doesn't intend to control the editorial policy of the university's student new- spaper, its president said Thursday. Darryl Ross made the state- ment to counter accusations made by former Meliorist editor Daniele deVernier when she and her staff resign- ed Tuesday. Miss deVernier charged the council with blocking attempts of The Melorist staffs "in making a publica- tion worthy of the U of L." She also charged the council with cutting the newspaper's budget. Mr. Ross points out that the student council has a policy in effect which prevents it from becoming involved with the editorial policy of The Meliorist. Accusations by Miss deVer- nier that the student council harrassed the newspaper staff because of its attempts to reshape the format of the paper puzzle, Mr. Ross, he said. Thugs beat night clerk Two men, one wearing a stocking over his face, clubb- ed a one-armed night clerk at the El Rancho Motor Hotel, 526 Mayor Magrath Drive S., about a.m. today and stole about Brian Blackford told Lethbridge city police a man jumped over the counter, pushed him to the floor and clubbed him with a two-foot piece of wood. It happened in about 20 seconds and Mr. Blackford was unable to offer any description of the men, except that they were young. He said he didn't even see the second man who came over the counter after he's been pushed to the floor by the first. He was able to determine there was a second man in- volved because he heard the men talking. Two cars were reported stolen in Lethbridge during the night.

SL S. In a meeting this week, Mr. Ross recalled, the budget of The Meliorist was discussed but the editorial policy of the mew staff "never officially entered into the question." Miss deVernier and her hand-picked staff took over responsibility for the paper this fall and immediately'an- nounced that its format would be changed from politically left-wing to a non-political cultural publication. Mr. Ross said the former editor walked out of the stu- dent council budget meeting this week when questioned about Meliorist budget items by a member of the council. There must have been a per- sonal misunderstanding of the whole situation because the student council increased The Meliorist budget rather than decreased it, he pointed out. Miss deVernier told The Herald the paper's budget had been cut from last year to for this year's staff. Mr. Ross said he didn't un- derstand where Miss deVer- nier obtained her figures. Pointing to figures on a budget form that has already been approved by council, he showed a budgetary increase of over the 1973-74 budget that provided The Meliorist with The granted the paper this year includes an increase in the printing por- tion of the budget from to he said. The student council doesn't appoint the editor of The Meliorist nor its staff, ac- cording to Mr. Ross. Usually the newspaper staff appoints next year's editor at the end of the school year but last spring it was unable to find anyone who wanted the job. so the former editor ap- pointed Miss deVernier to the position during the summer. ''The future of the paper is in limbo at this Mr. Ross said. The students council has called a general meeting of all students to give them the op- portunity to elect a new editor. The meeting will be held at noon Sept. 19. All interested students will be given the opportunity to become staff members of The Meliorist.
