Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD TuMday, September 1B, 1973 3 Fine set for IBM charge TULSA, Okla. (AP) International Business Machines Corp. has been found guilty of monopolistic business practices in the com- puter industry and was order- ed to pay the Telex Corp. million in damages. Telex, a Tulsa-based firm, in return was ordered to pay IBM million in damages for stealing IBM trade secrets. IBM was ordered to begin a series of actions to break up the huge firm's hold on the computer assessory "market, actions which Telex had sought. The opinion was released by U.S. District Court Judge A. Sherman Christensen, who heard arguments in the case for nearly two months earlier this year. IBM and Telex have been feuding over competition in the electronic data processing industry for years. Telex first sought billi- on in damages in a suit chargi- ng IBM with monopolistic practices. IBM countered in a suit accusing the Tulsa-based Telex firm of stealing trade secrets by hiring former IBM engineers. In its suit, Telex claimed IBM used predatory marketi- ng actions to create a monopo- ly in a portion of the market. It said IBM reduced the price on one accessory model to force competitors to cut their prices. IBM denied it was monopolistic, contending its share of the market in questi- on has declined annually in an industry that has swelled to 800 manufacturers of com- puter components. In its countersuit, IBM claimed top officials of Telex plotted to obtain IBM's con- fidential information. Telex denied it stole any IBM secrets. Edmonton team escapes death: chutes drift to power lines VALCART1KK, Wue. (CP) Two paratroopers narrowly escaped injury here when their parachutes drifted into high-voltage power lines during a jumping demonstra- tion, part of armed forces day exercises performed for Gov.- Gen. Roland Michener. The two unidentified soldiers were from Mobile Command at Edmonton. A group of 20 paratroopers jumping from a Hercules C- 130 aircraft landed about 500 feet short of their prepared drop zone. One drifted under a power line but the edge of his nylon canopy touched the high- voltage wire, sending blue flames and sparks into the air. Another drifted into power lines and his chute became en- tangled with the wires at the top of a utility pole. The man lowered himself to the ground but his chute remained atop the pole. In Berlin, the main parachute of a United States Army Skydiver failed to open properly during a demonstra- tion as tens of thousands in West Berlin watch him plunge earthward. Specialist Patrick (Rip) Vanbibber, 21. of Albuquer- que, N.M., landed safely but only after a dramatic fight to get his reserve chute open before he hit the ground. "I didn't think it would open, but it finally the soldier told a reporter. "I guess I was about 300 or 400 feet up when I got it open." Why the main chute failed to open properly was not clear. Vanbibber said he pulled re- serve chute out by hand slowly so that it would catch air and not get tangled with the main chute hanging from his back. He said he first tried to cut away the useless main chute but that the quick-releases mechanism did not function properly.

(AP) Sev- enteen days after their cabin cruiser hit a log and went down in the Caribbean, two Miami youths have been rescued from their lifesaving 13-foot dingy. Tommy Evans, 20, and Buddy Cosgrove, 19. were spotted Sunday 125 miles northwest of Swan Island by a U.S. Coast Guard search plane two days after two com- panions were found in a rubber liferaft. A coast guard spokesman said the youths were picked up by the West German freighter Angelbure. He said a coast guard cutter will take Evans and Cosgrove off the ship as it passes Miami en route to New York City. As the youths were being rescued, two Miami brothers who had been aboard the ill- fated cruiser, the 53-foot Itasca, were arriving in Miami on a commercial flight from British Honduras. Julian Fitzgerald, 42, and Joseph Fitzgerald, 40, were picked up Friday by a Jamaic- an cargo ship on its way to British Honduras and were taken there.
