Brandon Sun (Newspaper) - April 3, 1982, Brandon, Manitoba Rider takes under- the-weather horse to narrow victory by LAURA RANCE Sun Staff Writer Chad was under the weather Friday night, but that didn’t stop him from sailing over the jumps and into the winner’s circle. The 11-year-old gelding ridden by Barb Rooke of Ferintosh, Alberta beat (Wadka) Young Wolfburg ridden by Albert Kley of Spruce Meadows, by 1.5 seconds in the final jump-off to win the Grand Prix. Chad didn’t compete in the Royal until Thursday night. He was busy fighting off a bad case of shipping fever — the same type of illness that killed another horse in the barns this week. To begin with, “he’s not the best shipper,’’ and a grueling 21 hour drive from Calgary last Friday didn’t help matters any, Mrs. Rooke said. “Even tonight he wasn’t himself.” But the slow and steady won this race. Neither Chad nor (Wadka) Young Wolfburg had the best time, but they were the fastest in the six horse jump-off to finish with a clear round. The competitors’ stride was the key in the final. They had to cut one stride off the first run and the final run between jumps if they wanted to save time, course designer Randy Roy said. That strategy didn’t pay off for Allan Brand or Nancy Southern. Ms. Southern on Mosquito and Mr. Brand on Control It, had the best times, but both knocked a pole off jumps in the final jump-off — picking up four faults. “I tried to skip a stride between the first and second jump and the horse just wasn’t up to it. I was trying to make up time — it’s one of the chances you have to take,” said Mr. Brand. Control It finished fourth. For Ms. Southern, it was a case rushing the vertical jump. “I should have taken time to set him up properly.” (Wadka) Young Wolfburg lost time to a poor landing after his second last jump. That forced him to take eight strides instead of seven in that last run, putting him behind the three other horses. Miss Southern was the one rider in the competition to take a spill. Her first entry, Jaguar, refused a jump, dumping Nancy into the poles. The 11-year-old stallion just needs more work, she said. “He’s by far my best horse, he just takes a lot of riding.” In the final standings Chad jumped a clear round with a time of 29.10 seconds. (Wadka) Young Wolfburg followed in second with a time of 30.62 seconds. In third place was Mosquito at 28.41 and four faults, fourth, Control It at 28.61 and four faults, fifth, The Tycoon, ridden by Leon Marciak at 31.87 and four faults, sixth. Macho ridden by Mike Crooks at 32.15 and four faults, seventh place tie between Lucinda and Linda Southern with four faults after second round action and Gam-brinus and Allan Brand with four faults after the second round. Centennial 1882    1982 SATURDAY, APRIL 3, 1982 25<t Thatcher defends actions British Navy ordered to scene of invasion Canada shocked at invasion UNITED NATIONS (CP) — Canada expressed shock and urged restraint at an emergency UN Security Council session Friday night following Argentina’s invasion of the British-ruled Falkland Islands. Canada’s ambassador to the UN, Gerard Pelletier, expressed “shock and deep concern at the precipitous action of Argentina in resorting to force in its attack and armed occupation of the Falkland Islands.” A text of Pelletier’s statement was released in advance as the Security Council met late into the evening. He said Canada stongly urged Argentina and Britian to “exercise the utmost restraint and in particular to refrain from the use of, or threat of, force in the region and to continue to search for a diplomatic solution.” Pelletier expressed the hope that the Security Council would “approve rapidly a resolution” on the lines of one suggested earlier Friday by Britain. The resolution, proposed by Britain’s UN ambassador, Sir Anthony Parsons, called for an immediate end to hostilities, the withdrawal of all Argentine forces from the Falkland Islands and for Britain and Argentina to seek “a diplomatic solution.” Debate on the resolution was delayed while the Security Council dealt with a Jordanian resolution denouncing Israel's actions in the occupied West Bank and a Nicaraguan resolution calling for all countries to refrain from the use of force in Central America or the Caribbean. Both were vetoed by the United States. The Security Council then recessed. Debate on the Falkland Islands matter may spill over into the weekend, said a Canadian official. Pelletier called Argentina’s invasion and occupation of the Falkland Islands "particularly disturbing” in light of repeated calls from the UN General Assembly for “direct negotiations between the United Kingdom and Argentina with a view to reaching a peaceful settlement of the dispute.” “As a country of the Americas, Canada has a particular concern in any action which directly affects the peace and stability of the hemisphere,” said Pelletier. Canada is not currently a member of the 15-country Security Council. Five nations, including Britain, are permanent members and have veto power while the remaining IO are drawn from all UN member-countries. rn AP wirephoto DISCUSS INVASION: Edurado Roca, left, Argentine Ambassador to the United Nations told the Security Council Friday that the invasion of the Falkland Inlands was a “just” claim by his country.

Clark charges Joyal overpaid for duties OTTAWA (CP) — Serge Joyal, who earns $102,100 a year as minister of state for Quebec, admitted Friday he is not quite a full-fledged cabinet minister and does not have the same clout as his colleagues. Joyal, who shared duties with Justice Minister Jean Chretien in defending the Liberal constitutional package in Quebec, says his role now is “merely political” and he is not responsible for spending as are other ministers. Opposition Leader Joe Clark pressed in the Commons for details on Joyal’s job before telling reporters it is unfair he is paid full cabinet salary without specific duties and without being answerable to questions in the Commons. But even as Clark tried to pry answers from Joyal, Speaker Jeanne Sauve ruled the questions should have been directed to Prime Minister Trudeau because the minister of state is technically responsible for nothing in the House. “My responsibility is merely political,” Joyal told reporters later, adding that he has no role in spending under federal legislation that outlines ministerial duties. He said he is at the disposal of all ministers with economic responsibilities to help them explain government programs to all Canadians, particularly in Quebec. Joyal accused Clark of hypocrisy, saying that when the Conservatives formed a government in 1979, Perrin Beatty, MP for the Ontario riding of Wellington-Duffenn Simcoe, became minister of state for the Treasury Board. Second Soviet expelled OTTAWA (CP) — A Soviet official who allegedly helped trade representative Mikhail Abramov try to buy restricted technology from a New Brunswick businessman is also leaving the country, an external affairs spokesman said Friday. Andrei Plavinski, a commercial attache with the Soviet Embassy, has not been ordered out of the country like Abramov hut will be leaving soon because his tour of duty has ended, the spokesman said. External Affairs Minister Mark MacGuigan and Solicitor General Robert Kaplan earlier refused to confirm the allegations that Abramov was not the only Soviet official involved in the episode Nor would they say w hy Plavinski had not also been expelled. But Prime Minister Trudeau suggested later at a news conference that if two Soviet officials had been involved and only one was being expelled, the second must be leaving on his own. Although External Affairs confirmed the statement, the spokesman could not say exactly when Plavinski will leave. Abramov was told Wednesday he has IO days to get out of the country. Plavinski’s name was drawn into the intrigue by Elton Killam, president of Northumberland Cable Co. Ltd. of Petitcodiac, N.B., the businessman from whom Abramov allegedly tried to buy the high-technology equipment. LONDON (CP) — A large naval task force is to begin sailing for the Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic early next week in retaliation for Argentina’s military invasion on Friday, the British governent announced today. The lead ship, the aircraft carrier HMS Invincible — the ship to which Prince Andrew is attached — will sail Monday, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said during an emergency debate in Parliament, the first held on a weekend since the 1956 Suez crisis. The move follows the invasion by Argentine military forces of the British-governed archipelago, off the tip of South America at dawn Friday. Argentina flew 86 Britons, wvho it claims surrendered in the invasion, to Uruguay early today. They are expected to be flown back to Britain shortly. Thatcher declined to say what action the fleet might be ordered to take when it arrived in the area. Thatcher said the government is also taking steps to freeze Argentine assets in Britain and to suspend export credits. All gold, securities, and funds held by the Argentine government or individuals in Britain will be frozen, Thatcher told the stormy sitting of Parliament as she explained the government’s handling of events leading up to the invasion of the Falkland, administered by Britain since 1833. Dealing with widespread accusations that the government had been caught offguard by the invasion, Thatcher said she would have been accused of "war mongering” if she had dispatched a military force sooner to deal with an incident which appeared initially to be relatively minor. The incident involved the unauthorized landing of a party of Argentine scrap merchants on the Falkland dependency of South Georgia two weeks ago to salvage an abandoned whaling station. Britain said they had landed illegally. “It would have been absurd to dispatch the fleet every time there was a bellicose sailing from Buenos Aires,” Thatcher said as she referred to previous incidents relating to Argentina’s claim to sovereignty over the Falklands. She pointed out that under the former Labor government in December, 1976, Argentina illegally took over the island of South Thule, a Falkland dependency and held on to it despite British protests. The Argentine takover of that island, which still continues, was not disclosed to the British Parliament until May, 1978, Thatcher said. Former Labor foreign minister Ted Rowlands, who was involved in the earlier invasion, replied that there was no comparison between the takeover of uninhabited South Thule and Friday’s takeover of the entire Falklands with their population of 1.800.

Public hearings set for cottage-far rn WINNIPEG — Public hearings will be held in an effort to resolve a dispute among farmers, cottage-owners and conservationists over the proposed regulation of water levels in the Plum Lakes, Resources Minister Al Madding said F riday. The lakes, about 30 kilometres west of Souris, have been the subject of a dispute since Ducks Unlimited built a control structure at the outlet of the lakes in 1958. Ducks Unlimited has been unable to get a licence to operate the structure because it has been un able to get the necessary easements from area landowners. Those objecting include cottage-owners at Oak Lake who fear regulation of the Plum Lakes would affect their water levels Some farmers have objected to the Ducks Unlimited plan because they fear it would inundate hay areas, but others are in favor because the plan would help maintain groundwater supplies, Mr. Mackl-ing said. Mr. Madding said he has ordered his department to do field surveys for a study by the Manitoba Water Commission. The commission is to*schedule public hearings and develop a plan for water management in the area, Mr. Mackling said. Mr. Mackling said provincial wildlife officials agree with Ducks Unlimited that the area has great potential for wildlife development and for fish production. IN BRIEF The province will also invest $3,000 in a study of the potential social, economic and legal implications of ranching big-game animals such as elk and bison, Mr. Mackling said The other two grants arc $3,000 to study the effects on wildlife of the removal of shelterbelts in southwestern Manitoba, and $2,5(H) to study starvation of newly hatched pelicans at East Shoal Lake. Controls favored: poll MONTREAL (CP) — A Gallup poll taken mid-February suggests that more Canadians favor the imposition of wage and price controls than oppose them. In the poll published Saturday, 46 per cent of those surveyed favor wage and price controls. 42 per cent oppose them, while 13 per cent are undecided. Gallup said the proportion who favor wage and price controls has dropped five percentage points from a jmiII taken in October, 1978 Tilt* poll is based on tilt* results of 1.048 personal, in-home interviews with adults 18 years old and older. Elk study set WINNIPEG — A drop in the numbers of adult male elk in the Spruce Woods area east of Brandon has prompted the province to invest $3,500 in a study of elk populations in the area. Natural Resources Minister Al Mackling announced Friday. The study is one of four wildlife research projects, to be conducted bv the University of Manitoba, for which provincial support has just been announced. Diplomat shot PARIS (AP) — A gunman killed an Israeli diplomat today as he and his 17-year-old son walked out of their home in a fashionable Paris neighborhood, police and Israeli Embassy officials said. The diplomat was identified as Yacov Barsimantov, second secretary in charge of political affairs. French police sources said Barsimantov, 43, was shot several times in the head by a young woman while his son looked on.
