Steve Kotch, president and general manager ol Northern Bus Lines, said he was advised by a member of the traffic board that all the letters of support for the company's ap- plication were not going to be considered as admissible evi- dence by the board. He said Hie board has blat- antly discredited the efforts made by representations from the majority of the cities in the province that will be al- fected by the application. Letters of support were sent from Lethbridge city council, the chamber of commerce, the Travel and Convention Associa- tion of Southern Alberta, t h e Transportation Authority of Uie city of Calgary, various Edmon- ton interests and included peti- tions signed by Alberta resi- dents, said Mr. Kotch.

He said he is hopeful the new Progressive Conservative government will make an elec- tion promise come true and support smaller business en- terprises like Northern. Even with the new service started by Greyhound, Mr. Kotch said Northern will still apply to the traffic board for Tanchise rights in direct com- petition with the American- owned firm.

The youlhs had escaped cus- tody of the Victoria Juvenile Detention Centre and were arrested by the Taber town po- lice early Wednesday and charged with possession of sto- len property. They were being held at Lethbridge Correctional Insti- tute when it was learned they had stolen a car and other goods in Duncan. A court order Friday mor- ning released the pair from the charge of possession of stolen property so they could be re- turned to Duncan to face charges there.

He then wait- ed until the coast was clear and marie his escape. Iji anither case a prisoner ducked past Ihe guard and made a dash for freedom. In all cases the prisoners were back in their cells within a couple of hours. STRETCH STITCHES THE FACTS tilt.' EINA Str.tch St'itthii.
