Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, September 27, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Railways get one more chance OTTAWA (CP) Transport Minister Jean Marchand said Thursday that the railways will get one more chance to show what they can do before he government sets up ational passenger transport md freight car corporations. Mr. Marchand told eporters rail officials recent- y have shown keen interest in improving passenger train icrvice. What the government does with its election promises to orm a Canadian passenger transport corporation depends on what co-operation it gets in attempts to improve rail pas- senger service. He indicated the government would not find it necessary to take direct control of rail passenger tran- sport if the railways did a good job in improving service. The transport minister said the government also will delay implementing a promise to create a national freight car leasing corporation while waiting to see what the railways do to handle demand for freight cars. He set no time limit on this trial period. The minister has said in the past that ticularly rail in a mess, hinting even at the possibility of a takeover of CP Rail if the railway did not co- operate with the government. Mr. Marcband said he had thought the railways were not interested in passenger ser- vice and were giving poor ser- vice. Except for the Canadian National Railways fast Turbo train there had been no new passenger equipment in 20 years. But, the railways have con- vinced him they are interested in improving passenger oper- ations, he said. "I'm ready to see how far they can go with that." The minister said he has not abandoned the idea of a na- tional passenger corporation to operate grain and some bus services. But this agency was not a priority.

Militant miners' leaders stormed out of talks on a new pay deal after a brawl with moderates, and a second cabi- net minister threatened to quit if the ruling Labor party pulled Britain out of the Common Market. The walkout by militants of the National Union of Min- eworkers stalled negotiations on a Coal Board proposal for a plan under which miners would get a minimum of ex- tra for every five per cent out- put they achieved above a 75- per-cent productivity target Miners' basic pay is a week. Militants from the Yorkshire coalfields, backed by Scottish, Welsh and northern England delegates, violently opposed the deal and the session collapsed in scuffles between militants and moderates. The union leadership said later it will seek further talks with the Coal Board before putting the offer to a vote by its members. A similar vote last year resulted in an overwhelming vote to strike. A second senior minister, Roy Jenkins, announced he will quit the cabinet if his par- ty pulls Britain out of the nine- nation economic community TYPICAL CANADIAN OUT-AND-OUT BORE OTTAWA (CP) When all is considered, the statistically-typical Cana- dian comes across like an out-and-out bore. He (or she) is an apart- ment-dwelling. Urbanized Ontarian between the ages of 25 and 44, married with 1.7 children. The typical Canadian watches eight to 29 hours of television a week and spends one to seven hours weekly listening to radio but does not participate in sports, have any hobbies or work on arts or crafts. That dismal picture may be gleaned from the mass of charts and tables con- tained in Perspective Canada, the 321-page book put out this week by Statistics Canada. The new publication has been designed to give Canadians a glimpse of the way they live. Statistics Canada draws no conclusions from the mass of material in the book, leaving that task to the reader. The portrait of a typical Canadian is the unflatter- ing one of an overweight, unilingual smoker who is likely to die of circulatory ailments at the age of 69 years and 21 weeks, in the case of the male. The female will linger on for a few more years, to die at 76 years and six months. The Canadian is "fairly satisfied" with his 39.3- hour-a-week manufactur- ing job. He feels the same about pay, working condi- tions and job security as he does about the sense of ac- complishment and worth that his work gives him. A British Protestant, the typical Canadian has travelled to the "old or Western least once in his lifetime. Our average Canadian reads a newspaper, drinks 1.1 gallons of pure alcohol annually in the form of beer, and breathes in three parts per million of sulfur dioxide each day. Man's body identified CALGARY (CP) RCMP say the body of a man found Aug. 31 in the mountainous area of west-central Alberta, has been identified as that of Dorian Bertram of Red Deer. Mr. Bertram, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Bertram of Red Deer, had been missing since 1971. The body was found by two men from Rocky Mountain House who were returning home from a fishing trip.

Turkey's semi-official Ana- tolia news agency said there were no survivors, but gave no indication of how many men were aboard. Jane's Fighting Ships, the authoritative British publication, shows that a comparable United States destroyer carries about 350 men The Guinness Book of World Records says the worst peace- time disaster involving a mili- tary ship occurred in 1963 off Cape Cod, Mass., when the U.S. nuclear-powered sub- marine Thresher was lost with 129 aboard. Turkish naval sources said the Soviet ship belonged to the Kashin class, was attached to the Soviet Black Sea fleet, and exploded Wednesday. But the Anatolia agency said the dis- aster occurred two weeks ago OTTAWA (CP) Progressive Conservative MPs say they will suppress their anger at Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and support his nomination of Sudbury Liberal MP James Jerome as Commons Speaker. Conservative House Leader Gerald Baldwin (Peace River) said his party has ruled out any challenge to the Jerome nomination at the opening of the new session of Parliament Monday. Mr. Baldwin said Prime Minister Trudeau "prostituted the system" fay not consulting Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield before announcing early in August that he would propose Mr. Jerome for the year post. "We have a strong com- plaint against the prime minister, but we are not going to take out our resentment on Mr Baldwin said. "He will be judged by his ac- tions as Speaker Other opposition parties in- dicated they too would support the nomination of the 41-year- old lawyer to succeed former Speaker Lucien Lamoureux. "We see no reason to oppose New Democratic Party House Leader Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre) said. "We would dig in our heels if, the Liberals put up somebody who was a dead if Jerome is given the chance, he may measure up" Mr. Baldwin said the Con- servatives were upset when Prime Minister Trudeau did SAND gravel ASPHALT ITOLLESTRUP) SAND and GRAVEL f Construction Co.

Traditionally, the prime minister and the Opposition leader agree privately on the choice of a prospective Speaker before his name is an- nounced But last month the announcement of Mr. Jerome's nomination was issued by the prime minister's office within hours of Mr. Jerome telling Mr Trudeau he would stand for the job. When Mr Stanfield protested, officials in Mr. Trudeau's office said an offer to consult was made but not accepted by the Opposition leader Mr Stanfield said he never received such an offer.
