Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta TlturMiay, April 11, LBinoniuwB Easter adjournment plans fall apart OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment's plans for an Easter adjournment fell apart Wednesday amid a Commons clamor over rising prices and renewedrelection speculation. An adjournment motion ip' the name of Justice Minister Otto Lang was withdrawn after the minority Liberals were unable to get opposition support for its passage. Discussions were expected to continue on a possible agreement to salvage the Easter recess, scheduled from late Wednesday to Monday, April 22, but party spokesmen seemed pessimistic about any deal being made. Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield told reporters his Conservatives would agree to adjournment only if the government met certain conditions. These were a commitment to present a budget by, or shortly after, the end of the month, or to give the Conservatives an op- position day in the April 22-27 week, during which they could present a non-confidence mo- tion The adjournment issue be- came touchy Wednesday with the release of Statistics Canada figures showing a one- per-cent cost-of-living increase during March. Following a question period laced with opposition outrage over -the government's handling of inflation, party spokesmen indicated their parties are not eager to go on record as voting for an adjournment at a time of soaring prices. NDP Leader David Lewis told reporters he cannot accept the government's refusal to take action to roll back price increases. "I can't understand, let alone accept, the government's refusal to act." He said the moment of truth regarding his party's support for the government is approaching. "I've made it clear that we are approaching the point where the differences between the government and ourselves appear irreconcilable." Mr. Stanfield said he sees signs of the NDP's support for Hearst charges press ripoff LA PAZ, Mexico (AP) Randolph Hearst charged Wednesday that the United States press is being used by the kidnappers of his daughter Patricia to further their "twisted political ideas." "This has been one of the biggest ripoffs the press has ever gone Hearst told reporters at this fishing resort on the Baja California peninsula to which he brought his family last Sunday. The Symbionese Liberation Army which took 20- year-old Patricia from her Berkeley, Calif., apartment on Feb. 4, "have used the attention of the press to further their own twisted political Hearst said. He is president and editof of the San Francisco Examiner. GENERAL FARM Presents The Weather SUNRISE FRIDAY SUNSET H L Pre.

The NDP has consistently supported the Liberals on cru- cial votes and any joint stand with the Conservatives on the inflation issue likely would topple the government. Mr. Lewis said the original adjournment plans were scuttled because the Con- servatives "wanted the best of both worlds." "They wanted a holiday and also to give the impression they were ready to stay here and work. They expected us to vote with the government, but if they insist on a vote we won't go for it. "No one is going to walk out of here a hero." Quebecers buy half of tickets Kidnapper? Donald David De- Breeze, above, the man believed to be Patricia Hearst's kidnapper, was viewed four years ago by a prosecutor as a man with "a total lack of regard for human court records revealed Wednesday. Third world countries demand better deal UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) Algerian President Houari Boumedienne declared Wednesday that developing nations must nationalize their raw materials for their own economic survival. China backed him up, demanding a better economic deal for third world countries. "Nationalization of raw materials has become a fundamental prerequisite of economic Boumedienne said in the opening speech of a two week special General Assembly session on raw materials and development. Chinese Deputy Premier Teng Hsiao-ping said the underdeveloped countries can begin to emerge from poverty "if they can take in their own hands the production, use, sale, storage and transport of raw materials and sell them at reasonable prices on the basis of equitable trade relations." Referring to China as a fellow developing country, Teng praised the Arabs for using oil as a weapon to deal "a telling blow at Zionism and its supporters" and declared "what was done in the oil battle should and can be done in the case of other raw materials." In addition to urging nation- alization of raw materials, the Algerian leader said third world countries should process their materials at home. He said they should receive more aid from rich countries, their present "burdens" should be lightened and a special program of "more concentrated aid" should be established for the least-developed nations. He said developed countries now monopolize raw materials, manufactured products, capital and services and are fixing the prices "both of the raw materials that they take from the developing countries and the goods and services" they furnish them in return. Also at the session, French Foreign Minister Michel Jobert said a U.N. monitoring centre should be set up to "enable us better to survey the trends of supply and demand and help producers better to plan their production and development." MONTREAL (CP) Quebec bought more than half the tickets sold for the first Olympic lottery and Ontario was next among the provinces, it was announced Wednesday. The big winner will collar a cool million and a potential total of in prizes will be distributed in the lottery draw, to be televised Monday night on the CBC English and French networks in a 90- minute color spectacular from the Ottawa civic centre. Olympic Lottery Canada re- ported Quebecers bought of the numbers now resting in the lottery computer while of the tickets, were sold in Ontario. Alberta was third with and the other participating provinces weighed in this way: New Brunswick New- foundland, and Prince Edward Island While the other four provinces did not participate in this first of eight Olympic lotteries, residents were free to purchase tickets by postal order: British Columbia, Manitoba Saskatchewan Nova Scotia 2.431. The Yukon and the Northwest Territories bought a total of tickets. Of the 2.5 million tickets issued for the lottery, 492 were cancelled. Though toreign postal sales are listed at only it is known that many visitors from the United States and some from other lands as well made over-the-counter purchases.

On that basis, the bulk of winners would be from Que- toec, Ontario and Alberta. The million number will be drawn shortly before p.m. "live" on television Monday night but how long before the holder's identity is known is anybody's guess. The holder will have to present the ticket to the Olym- pic lottery before officials can announce the name of the win- ner and the same applies to most of the other winners, a potential including a second prize and a third prize. Tickets should be sent by registered mail, if the mails are used. In the case of tickets pur- chased by mail, the Olympic lottery has retained the stubs here and therefore will itself be able to establish the names oi winners mail purchases represent only six per cent of tickets bought. "We'll have to go through our records in Montreal before it can be determined if they do, in fact, include said Mr. Core. Cheques will be sent auto- matically to such winners be- ginning Tuesday. Winners who wish to call for their prizes in person are asked to wait until Wednesday before visiting the lottery offices at 800 de Maisonneuve Blvd. East, Montreal. After each participating province has been paid five per cent of the lottery's gross revenue from tickets sold in that province, the over-all lottery profit goes to the organizing committee of the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games.
