Notorious Angels lose image led School workers ast as liasoii HAMILTON (CP) A new variety of school worker is being trained in a pilot course at Mohawk College. Called community school workers, they are learning how to serve as liaison be- tween the community and the school. Phil By CHARLES FOLEY London Observer SAN FRANCISCO Califor- nia's notorious motor cycle gang, who call themselves .Hell's Angels, are in trouble. A rash 01 court cases has link- ed them with drug-running on a vast scale, to murder and other violence, and to vigilante action against the states' political radi- cal groups. It is the lost development against radical groups that has caused even the young peo- ple of the so-called counter-cul- ture, who once admired the An- gels as the ultimate rebels against society, to regard them instead as a gang of para-mili- tary right-wing hoodlums, one of the nastier outcrops of the Great American Dream. TORN UP TOWNS For more than 20 years the Angels have torn up the towns and roads of California, a horde of hirsute, helmeted barbarians, given to beating up unfriendly barmen and gang-raping teen- age girls. Over a period of 10 years police reported that 466 members of the gang figured in arrests and earned near- ly convictions for crime, ranging from robbery to assault. i White, one of the have been shot, stabbed and beaten to death. Then, about three years ago the Angels made a determined bid to change this lurid image, which they had assiduously built up even making a film in the sixties called Hell's An- gels on Wheels. It starred Ralph "Sonny" Barger, their leader, and 200 members of the actual gang. Suddenly the Angels became superpatrbts. They attacked peace marchers in Berkeley and offered themselves as behind-the-lines guerrillas in Vietnam. President Lyndon Johnson declined their sugges- tion for crack force to de- moralize the Vietcong and ad- vance the cause of freedom." LOSE FRIENDS As a public relations effort to give the Angels a sort of vi- gilante establishment aura it worked well. But at a Rolling Stones concert in Altamont, California, the Angels lost their last counter-cultural friends when they waded into a crowd, using billiard cues as clubs, and left a young black man dead. Meanwhile, police say, the gang's dope operations were mushrooming as they handled deals for hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of LSD. heroin course organizers, says grad- uates must ask: "How can the community best use the school and vice versa, in terms of both The gang affected a range of and, their speciality, cocaine.

In fights with rival gangs men courier for the group was ar- rested with a briefcase stuffed with drugs valued at "enough to supply 30.000 addicts.'1 said police. It was during the trial in De- cember last that the bizarre story of the gang's friendly re- lationship with ements of the California police was revealed. "Sonny" Barger, now 33, and three friends were acquitted of murdering a narcotics carrier whose bullet punctured body was found in the bathtub of a burning house last May. State lawyers alleged that he had been killed for worth of pure cocaine, later re- covered part of more than 831' million worth of drugs the gang had shipped across coun- try in the past three years. A former police sergeant re- vealed that the gang had co- operated with California police in preventing guns and explo- sives from reaching the hands of revolutionary groups. But once the Angels had sold weap- ons to a Black Panther group, before informing the police of their whereabouts. Sergeant Ted Billiard con- firmed that he had promised to intercede for the Angels if they were arrested to try to get them reduced sentences. Throughout 1970-71, he said, "Sonny" Barg- er had turned over to him gren- ades, dynamite, plastic explo- sive, shotguns and machine- guns. Once, said HHliard. now an investigator for the district at- torney. Barger offered to de- liver the corps of a political radical for every Hell's Angel freed from prison. The ex-po- liceman said he told him that was "out of the question." Gov't subsidy sought by students Winston Churchill Seekers group unique at WCHS By BRENDA KOSAKA Winston Churchill's musical, Oklahoma bad a sellout every night.

It is an intervarsity religious group. A member of the club, Karen Kropinak, explained this unique group was first organized in WCHS in 1962 and was known as the Inter-School Christian Fellowship. She said the club is a non- denominational group whose motto is "to know Christ and to make him known." Meetings take place every noon hour, plus Monday nights. About 12 people are in attendance at each meeting. The meetings are organized and led by the members, with direction from Larry Kirkpat- rick, regional co-ordinator for I.S.C.F. The seekers group provides an opportunity for all students to express their views-and con- tribute to discussions dealing with religion and today's soci- ety. There are often films, de- bates, panels, or special speak- ers as well as social events. In the offing for the WCHS group is a book table where religious books are displayed and sold. There is the hope to bring in Garry Lefevbre, Edmonton Eskimo football player, to share the testimony of his re- cent conversion to Christ.
