Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE September Sick Albertan 'Charley on way home dies at age 68 By JOSEPH MacSWEEN NICOSIA (CP) The loan- nides family of Edmonton ar- -ived safely in this capital late Monday after being trapped several weeks behind the lines of the Turkish army in the northeast panhandle of Cyprus. Nicolas 'loannides, an Edmonton teacher, his wife and four young children were "eported elated on their arrival but they sent word that they did not wish to speak to a at present. They dined with Col. G.HJ. Lessard of Montreal, com- mander of the Canadian Air- rorne Regiment, after loan- nides, who was earlier "eported ill, underwent an ex- amination by a Canadian doc- tor. Funeral set for drowned city man Funeral services will be held Wednesday at 11 a.m. for a 68-year-old Lethbridge man who drowned in Duck Lake, Montana Sunday. Glacier County coroner William Riddle said, Joe Vic- tor Fournier, a resident of Devon Nursing Home in Lethbridge, was found in shallow water Sunday by one of his 10 children. Mr. Fournier apparently slipped off the bank of the lake and drowned before his son arrived, the coroner said. Requiem mass will be celebrated at St. Patrick's Catholic Church. Burial will follow in the Mount Calvary section of Mountain View Cemetery. The children were John, 13; Andreana, 11; Evangelos, 10, and Zenon, 6. loannides and his wife, Iph- igenia, were talking with Col. Lessard other officers when a reporter looked into the dining room of the Ledra Palace Hotel, headquarters of the Canadian contingent serv- ing with the United Nations peacekeeping force in Cyprus. WERE ON VISIT The loannides, who are Canadian citizens, were on a 45-day air excursion to their native land when the northern part of the island was seized by Turkish troops during the summer. The airborne regiment, whose home base is in Edmon- ton, apparently scored a coup in the release of the family. Members of the regiment established personal contact with Turkish officers and arranged for the family to come through the lines. There had been attempts to free the loannides through various agencies including the United Nations and the Inter- national Committee of the Red Cross. DETAILS Officers declined to say how the family was brought here and also turned aside questions about details of the release. Mrs. loannides told Col. Lessard that the family did not want to meet reporters at present or answer any ques- tions. The loannides were found at Rizokarpaso, 70 miles from Nicosia, 2Vz weeks ago by Maj. Bob Lockhart, former Saint John, N.B., mayor who is information officer with the Canadian contingent. Maj. Lockhart had travelled to Rizokarpaso and was ap- proached by Mrs. loannides waving a Canadian passport. Judge considers crash case Provincial Judge L. W. Hudson reserved to Sept. 30 his decision in the trial of a 17 year old Lethbridge youth charged with failing to leave his name with a person in- jured in an accident. Patrick W. Middleton was charged Aug. 28 after a woman cyclist was struck by a car on 6th Avenue N., just east of the intersection of 13th Street N. Mrs. Tamara Zajac, 1508 13th St. N.. the cyclist, who told the court she received a leg injury in the accident, testified that Middleton offered her no assistance. She testified that "a lawyer's secretary helped me and also two older men helped. I told them I wanted to go home." Mrs. Zajac told the court the accident occurred shortly after noon as she was riding her bicycle out of the 7-11 Grocery onto 6th Avenue N. The accused had me con- fused, she said, "I didn't know what he was doing." Questioned by defence counsel Martin Hoyt. Mrs. Za- jac said the accused didn't drive away but "stood there and looked at me. She testified. "I asked the lady to write down the licence number." Asked if she told the lady to get the driver's name and address she replied, "No. I just wanted to go home." City police Sgt. William Zaychuk told the court Middleton was located two days after the accident and some small marks were found on the right rear quarter of the youths' car. Middleton testified he was driving south on 13th Street N. and after stopping at the intersection he made a left turn to 6th Avenue. Once he was on 6th Avenue, going about five miles per hour, he said he heard a thud but couldn't see anything. "I pulled over and parked and when I got out of the car a lady was helping the woman on the bicycle. I went over and picked up two cans (part of the woman's groceries) and put them in the back seat of the car." Mr. Middleton said. He said after the woman was put in the car he went back to his car and left a short time later. "No one asked me for my name or licence or Mr. Middleton testified. He said he had waited at the scene to see if the woman wanted his name and licence registration. He said he didn't call the police to report the ac- cident. LOS ANGELES (AP) Cliff Arquette, the chuckling, grandfatherly Charley Weaver who made millions laugh with his homespun letters from Mt. Idy, is dead at 68. The veteran comedian died Monday in hospital in sub- urban Bur bank, where he had been taken Saturday after complaining of chest pains. In April 1972, Arquette suf- fered an apparent heart at- tack in his car. Later that year he suffered a stroke. Arquette was the second veteran character actor to die within three days. Academy- Award winner Walter Brennan died of emphysema Saturday in an Oxnard, Calif., hospital at 80. As Charley Weaver, Ar- quette appeared in rolled-up shirtsleeves, suspenders, crooked tie and floppy hat. With his wirerimmed glasses slipped to the, end of his nose, he told homespun stories about life back home in fic- titious Mt. Idy. JOKES AT END Arquette introduced the television he called a "rube" and "dirty old 1953 on the Den- nis Day show. Actor Dave Willock, a long- time friend who visited Ar- quette in the hospital Sunday, said: "He looked up at me and said, 'They held me over for another performance'." "He was planning to be married in the near, said Willock. "He and Mirian Call began dating in the '30s, then they both married others. The romance started again about two years ago when she came to visit him when he was in the hospital with his first heart attack." As Weaver, Arquette ap- peared on numerous TV talk shows, beginning several years ago on Jack Paar's Tonight show. He was a regular on NBC's Hollywood Squares game show since its inception in 1966. He also was an expert in his- tory, an artist, woodcarver and an accomplished musician. In 1959 he opened a museum in a 125-year-old house on the Civil War battlefield at Get- tysburg, Pa., featuring 12-inch models of soldiers depicting the history of military un- iforms. Arquette, who had spent 25 years researching the subject, carved each of the models and made the un- iforms. Born Dec. 28, 1905, in Toledo, Ohio, Arquette quit school at 14 and entered show business. For the next three years he played in a band, then went into Vaudeville. Arquette did his first radio network show with Fred Astaire and Charlie Butterworth and later worked with Burns and Allen and Rudy Vallee. He is survived by a son, Lewis of Chicago, and a brother, Russ of San Fran- cisco. Funeral arrangements were pending. Irving newspapers not a By DAL WARRINGTON FREDERICTON (CP) There should be no forced sale of Irving newspapers in New Brunswick because no mo- nopoly now exists, an Irving lawyer argued Monday in a provincial Supreme Court appeal hearing. The case con- tinues today. John J. Robinette of Toron- to, one of the country's leading newspaper lawyers, said any monopoly was dis- solved in the spring of 1972 when ownership of five Irving dailies was split between John Irving and his brothers James and Arthur, all of Saint John, N.B. Last July Mr. Justice Albany M. Robichaud ordered two papers, The Times and The Transcript in Moncton, sold to a person or group hav- ing no connection with the Irv- ing interests. The sale is to be completed .within a year after court action is concluded. The sale order followed con- viction of four Irving com- panies on newspaper monopo- ly charges and the imposition of fines totalling When charges were laid in 1971. New Brunswick's five English-language dailies were controlled by K.C. Irving Ltd.. headed by the millionaire father of the present owners. Mr. Robinette alleged that in any event Judge Robichaud had no jurisdiction to order John Irving to give up his sole ownership of the Moncton papers. He said John Irving was not charged, played no part in the trial and had been ordered to dispose of his assetts without a hearing. He was a son of K.C. Irving but he had the same rights as any citizen. In his appeal the defence lawyer also made these claims: trial judge erred in convicting the Irving com- panies because the prosecu- tion failed to prove that any monopoly was detrimental to the public interest. Proof of a monopoly alone was not enough. judge's sale order was too broad, barring purchase even by anyone with one share of stock in an Irving company as well as others far removed from the Irving family. fines were excessive in a case where no detriment to the public was found. William Hoyt of Frederic- ton, special prosecutor for the federal justice department, said disposal of the new- spapers among the Irving sons did not constitute the dissolu- tion required by the combines law. The three men had close common interests in at least 50 companies in and outside New Brunswick. As for John Irving, he could have testified during the trial but there was no sign he had even wanted to be heard. A conviction would be meaningless unless continua- tion of the monopoly was prohibited.. Mr. Hoyt said Judge Rob- ichaud was "sound in facts and sound in law" in finding the Irving companies guilty. Primeval collission convulsed Mercury By WALTER SULLIVAN New York Times Service NEW YORK A study of pictures sent to earth by Mariner 10 indicates that the planet Mercury was once struck with such force that the impact not only produced a crater 800 miles wide but also left scars directly opposite that area of the globe. This was reported Monday, based on images obtained Jast March as well as those tran- smitted on Ihe spacecraft's second passage of the planet last weekend. The impacting object, it is estimated, may have been 60 miles or more in diameter The hypothesis that the blow from such an object rould generate an effect at the an- tipodal point the one direct- ly opposite the impact has been reinforced by the obser- vation that similar eJfects have been identified on the moon. The two most prominent im- pact features on the moon are the Sea of Rains 'Mare Imbriumi and the Eastern Sea 'Mare Orientate', both being comparable in scope to the giant crater on Mercury. Dr. Donald E. Gault of the Ames Research Centre told a news briefing on the mariner mission that patches of chaotic terrain, similar to an area on Mercury, had been identified directly opposite both those lunar features. The impact crater on Mer- cury has been named the Caloris Basin since it becomes extremely hot because of the planet's proximity to Ihe sun. Mercury is the innermost of the known nine planets Berause the basin was part- ly on the dart side of Mercury during both flights of mariner 10 past !he planet, only part of the basin has been photographed However, it shows the same bu3Jseye pattern of concentric rings as 1he eastrrn sea on the moon The basin was gouged out. Gault '.aid. toward the end of the bombardment responsible ior Mercury's pockmarked appearance. Nevertheless, he added, this occurred during the iirst billion years ol the planet's lifetime thai is. more than 3.5 billion years ago. A variety of explanations could account for the an- tipodal effect, he said. The im- pact could have sent a pressure wave directly through the heart of the planet, causing an upheaval directly opposite the impact. Or. surface waves could have traveled around the planet in ail directions to converge on the far side. Such effects could have released volcanic activity Or least probable fragments thrown up by Ihe impact couJd have flown around the planet to collide and fall at the antipode. The resulting area has been termed "the weird terrain" by project scientists. Gault said H coasists of "lineated. chaotic, almost scabby with areas belween them seemingly flooded with Java. Manner 10 on Saturday came within miles of the planet. Its telescopic im- ages showed no further areas of such terrain, supporting the view. said, that the area opposite the caioris basin photographed last March, peculiar to that site. is The project manager. Walker E. Giberson. said he was "slightly optimistic" that a third passage of Mercury would be possible next March. It would come within 1.600 miles of the planet and would concentrate on observations of such features as the planet's magnetism, with less emphasis on picture-taking. One surprise on this fly-by was the detection, some 30.000 miles in front of the sun- facing side of the planet, of bursts of electron radiation. While such bursts have been detected in space un-sun of the earth and Venus and close to Mercury, their appearance so far out remains to be ex- plained 3t is suspected that they are generated where outrushmg gas from the sun meets the magnetic field of Mercury. However, the nature of the field, its permanence and the manner of its generation are all uncertain. How'd you like Get better overall operating economy than we've offered in years?

The Catalytic Exhaust Converter, an important engineering breakthrough, meets this year's more stringent requirements for hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide emissions. As these emissions pass through the Catalytic Exhaust Converter, a catalyst of platinum and palladium (the same metals found in fine jewellery) acts to chemically change these emissions into water vapor and carbon gas that makes the bubbles in soda pop.
