URTQWN ByAfPofmer Expo U.S.A. BY APPOINTMENT GAZETTE PHOTO 61-1111 MONDAY, JULY 3, 1947 Weekend Death Toll At 19 We were fortunate in obtaining a weighty volume from Freemrn W. Clowery, of Sherbrooke, which extensively details that other centennial exhibition on a national scale, the one held by the United States in 1876. Although almost a century has elapsed between the 1876 Expo at Philadelphia and Expo 67, the book, written by James D. McCabe, reveals similar problems arose at both events.

Four persons were killed and 30 others injured when a bus carrying a group to Expo 67 overturned on the Trans-Canada Highway near St. Hyacinthe, about 30 miles east of Montreal. It brought to 19 the number of persons killed accidentally in Quebec since Friday. Names of those killed in the St. Hyacinthe crash were immediately available pending notification of next-of-kin.

Vietnam Protesters March Through City By NICK AUF der MAUR In those pre-Logexpo days, hotels in Philadelphia handled 150,000 persons per day and "no advance was made in the prices of board or lodgings which were kept at the regular rates." Wonder how that grabs those who today wind up in shacks with luxury hotel rates.

The highest room rates charged in Expo 76 were 85 per day and the lowest $2.50. The Logexpo of that day could have been the Centennial Lodging House Agency. It came into being when thousands of boarding houses took advantage of the idea of accommodating vistors. It operated like this, according to the book: "Guests paid landlords with tickets supplied by the Agency. These tickets were on sale in rail ticket offices in the United -States and Canada.

An Agency member met each train and gave information on lodgings and how to Teach them and attended to the delivery of the luggage." How about that? Fashions change over the years as can be judged by illustration; no miniskirt that, Chum. The gal is gazing at well heavens to Betsy the champagne exhibit! Building Picks Up Montreal construction industry prospects took on a considerably rosier hue as the year's first half ended, with values of projects given the green light in June being five times that authorized in the same month of 1966. Value represented by building permits issued by City Hall last; month was compared with $3,512,440 for the preceding June. Of this total, $12,225,000 was in the governmental and institutional category and thus exempt from real estate taxes. The June permits brought aggregate value of construction approved in the first half of 1967 to $54,003,855 compared with $87,187,320 in the corresponding period of 1966.

F. Nolan, labor relations director for the company. He will then call a meeting of his own group, possibly this evening, to submit the latest draft of a proposed contract.

Mr. also met Saturday with the company, but nothing definite was done about the production workers. It appeared settlement of the production workers walkout would be a corollary to ending the office workers dispute. Tempo of the talks quickened after it was announced some 3,000 office employees and hourly-rated workers in two Northern Electric plants in Outario were to be laid olf because of production cutbacks. About 2.200 workers were to be laid off at the Bramlea plant near Toronto and an additional 800 at Brampton, Ont.

"Canadians everywhere are celebrating this anniversary ih their own way," he declared, "but we cannot celebrate our independence as a nation in good conscience if our government is a party to the destruction of another people." Northern Electric Agreement Expected To End Long Strike Coin-Pitch Outlawed In March Lieut. Steve Olynyk of Montreal police said Friday liej outlawed coin-pitching games; at Expo La Ronde amuse-, ment area after a meeting with concessionnaires last March.

He was testifying at the trial of Andrew Singer, 22, charged with having "illegally induced a person to risk or hazard money or other valuable property on a coin table." He said that at the time of the meeting-only a vague type-" written report of the coin-pitching game was presented to him, listing only "the type of the game and the size." Lieut. Olynyk said he asked the concessionnaire for a better description of the game but did not receive one. He had not seen the game set up at La Ronde before the opening of Expo. Esther Phillips, 43, wife of Webster Phillips of Tampa, before the courts on a similar charge, said that the game exhibited in court was a spot pitching game and not a coin table. A veteran of 24 years in, carnivals and fairs, Mrs.

Phillips said coin tables have money on them. "A person has to cover the money with a ring or a loop. If they are successful, they win tlie money thCy covered. "Coin-pitching or spot-pitching is a different game altogether. You win prizes such as stuffed animals, but never money." Judge Rene T.

CP -A retired army colonel, Eric Motzfeldt, 59, and his wife, Louise, 68, of Innerkip, were killed Friday when their car collided with another on Highway 401 about 2 miles east of here. Driver of the other car was Janet Gleason, 17, of Birmingham, N.Y. The Motrfeldts, former residents of Montreal, were driving to Montreal.

Born in Denmark in 1908, Col. Motzfeldt was a graduate of the University of Copenhagen. He became a naturalised Canadian citizen in 1935 and had long been associated with the insurance business in Montreal. Col. Motzfeldt was president of the Victorian Order of Nurses in 1954 where he advocated increased free or partly paid visits to patients' homes.

Three years later he was elected president of the Canadian Club. His service overseas with the Black Watch Regiment included four years unbroken duty during the Second World War. He was a Commanding Officer of the Black Watch overseas and was twice wounded seriously. Body Recovered PLATTSBURGH. N.Y.

Bernard Gouvrenant, 34, of St. Lambert, vanished April 19, apparently after a boating accident. A small aluminum boat was found washed ashore at nearby Cumberland Head on May 3. i kNnW HEAftSVlS ON ON VAil auv TGN BY ft "-J w5 FAIR GUEST no mini that But while fashions change considerably, the fundamental problems and subsequent solutions of world fairs remain fairly simlar.

For instance, street cars to that Philadelphia exhibition carried 20,000 fair-goers to the big show on the first day. Metro did better, of course, on Expo '67 opening day. And back in '76. the fair even had an Expo Express of sorts. No carriages were allowed on the site then as now, but the West End Railway built a narrow gauge line that ran along a four-mile stretch.

Fare was a nickel. The 1876 equivalent to our Expo guards was a police force of 600 uniformed men organized as a permanent regiment and with full power to arrest. It was housed in barracks on the grounds and the men were on duty day and night. Admisson then was a straight 50 cents. Keepers at each of the 76 paid admission gates collected the half-dollar then pressed a foot lever releasing the turnstile.

This registered mechanically at the gate and electrically in the manager's office. The exhibition had an ice-water fountain with 26 taps erected by the Grand Divisioa of Sons of Temperance. It also had a soda fountain which cost between $25,000 and $50,000 and boasted of almost unlimited supplies of soda water plus 76 syrups, 8 sodas and 20 mineral tubes. We could go on and on. Think we will.

Thousands of other Mont-realers and tourists watched as the placard-carrying demonstrates, led by a theatrical mime troupe, marched along a two-mile route from Dominion Square to Lafontaine Park. The long line of marchers, stretched up to 10 blocks along Sherbrooke chanting "Viet-Nam for the Vietnamese," "Johnson Assassin, Pearson Complice" and "Yankee Go Home." A relatively small group of separatists, following directly behind the Montreal Living and carrying a multitude nt Quebec flags, joined the peace marchers for the first time ever. They cried for self-determination of Quebec along with Vietnam. The marchers came from across the country, with banners proclaiming the presence of Toronto, Ottawa.

Vancouver, Hamilton and Edmonton anti-war movements. The United Electrical Workers union from Peterborough, pas-sod out paper hats to protect participants from the hot sun. Americans were represented by contingents from Detroit and Buffalo carying banners reading "Bring Our Boys Back Alive Now." A relatively large number of the marchers were middle-aged and elderly men and women, along with numerous children.

Leaders of the 2,700 office workers at Northern Electric Company units in Montreal have concluded an agreement with management that is expected to bring an end to their five weeks' strike. Larry Redmond, spokesman for the Employees' Association, said details of the contract will be made public at a meeting called for Tuesday at the Paul Sauve Centre. It covers a three-year period. The agreement was hammered out in talks that wound up Saturday evening between negotiators for management and the Employees' Association, assisted by the United Auto Workers (CLC) that had pledged support. Wally Webber from the UAW's international office, and Louis Laberge, Quebec director, helped in the final negotiations.
