Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Birds fall dead in B.C. mystery PRINCE RUPERT, B.C. (CP) Birds continued to lall dead from the sky here Monday as wildlife experts tried lo figure out what killed hundreds of small birds late last week. Reports from as far away as 50 miles up the Skecna Iiiver from this northern Pacific coast city indicated that several large eagles, owls and had been killed. In Prince Rupert, most of the victims were warblers and thrushes. Seventy-five bird carcasses were sent to the federal agricul- ture department laboratory at Vancouver and 25 more to the provincial fish and wildlife lab at Victoria. But officials said it could be a week before the re- sults of tests are available. The number of birds affected Monday appeared 10 be smaller than the toll last week. Residents first noticed birds flying erratically, crashing in'.n windows and simply dropping dead on Thursday. Many of the victims appeared lo have lost icalherr. and had red patches on their skins. Conservationist Andy Acker- man said that while the cause of the deaths was not known, "we are quite sure it has some- thing to do with their nervous systems." He said some af- fected birds which had not been killed outright were unable to fly or walk. Investigators noted Uiat a heavy fog hung over the area Wednesday, the day before the first deaths were noticed. New Brunswick prospects dim POLICEMAN KILLED KCAIP Constable II. S. Selgel, 28 ,was shot and killed dnr- ing a 12-hour scige in He des Chencs, Alan., a village 20 miles south of Winnipeg. FHEDEHICTON (CP) More than 40 per cent of New Brunswick residents live at or below the poverty line and, without, major change in gov- ernment altitudes and struc- tures, face dim prospects lor the future. Tliis message is contained in a 268-page report to the New Brunswick government by an ]l-member task force on social dc-velopinent and social welfare. The report, released at a news conference here bv task force co-chairmen Dean II. L. Nutter ofFredericton and Emery Leblanc of .Moncton, makes 227 specific recommen- dations for improvement in edu- cation, health, welfare, social and economic development. The proposals are based on months of research and stacks paper on social development and social welfare tabled in the legislature by Hie government of former Premier Louis J. Robichaud in 1970. The task force also was to recommend "broad guidelines" that would help the govcrnmenl define fu- ture priorities in the field. The report says alleviation of poverty cannot occur without major changes in orientation by a 11 government departments and agencies involved in social and economic programs. While reluctant lo list prob- lems in order of priority, the re- port says the basic needs ol the food, clothing 43.7 tons, and be met in a precondition for any effective social development program.

The federal anti-dumping tri- huna] ruled thai sets with 12- inch screens or bigger from most exporters of Japan and Taiwan had injured Canadian manufacturers. Sony Corp. and Sharp Corp. of Japan were exempted from the ruling. In the case of other makes, the tribunal conceded that it en- countered difficulty establishing with precision the degree of damage lo Canadian production and employment. Nevertheless the three-man tribunal, headed by W. W. Buchanan, former tariff-board member, decided that the im- ports were injurious. The tribunal thereby rein- forced a June 30 finding by cus- toms officials that such sets had been imported at prices below fair-market value in the country of origin and should be subject to a special import levy, Inves- started last November. The special anti-dumping levy, which ranges up to 33 per cent, was imposed provisionally pending the; outcome of Uio tri- bunal inquiry into whether the dumping had injured Canadian manufacturing. With the special import levy confirmed, Canadian importers are also on notice that future imports in the specified cate- gory must carry price tags judged by customs authorities to be fair-market values. AFFECTS SOME The provisional anti-dumping ruling had applied to all sets of screen sizes eight inches or more. The tribunal, however, exempted from its ruling sets between eight and 12 inches, a range Canadian manufacturers are not worried about. Set sizes are the diagonal measurement of the TV screen from corner to beneficiaries of the tribunal rul- corner.

An PDI agent said "there is some reason for doubting his story." Leroy Savage, 27, of Green- wood, Ark., radioed Oklahoma air traffic facilities shortly after midnight Monday night that he was being hijacked in his Cessna-150. He said he had no night flying experience and was no: sure of his location. Another plane in the air picked up the calls and came to Savage's assistance. A spokes- man for the Tulsa flight com- munication centre monitoring the conversation sad the second plane helped talk Savage down for a safe landing here at about a.m. Before landing, Savage ra- dioed that his abductor had bailed out over McAlester, Okla He said his abductor had wanted him to fly to Mexico. The FBI here said Savage in- sisted he had been hijacked, but said he had been "hitting a few bars in Fort Smith (Ak.) be- fore he took off."

In the same period, unit sales of Canadian-based makers grew insignificantly. However, in terms of dollar participation in the market, (he picture is not so gloomy as the balk figures on units would sug- gest because Canadian factories dominate in high-priced color sets.
