Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Rebellious Cyprus slides toward war By KEVIN DOYLE Canadian Press Staff Writer As United Nations per- sonnel, including a large rontin- gent of Canadians, stand by help'essly, th? r-bel'ioi's island of Cyprus is sliding towards an explosive Rsbel forces in the ancient Mediterranean country are es- calating their terror attacks ageinst civilian and military targets. Thiriy-six bomb explosions reported in one day ear- lier this week and the numbers of assassinations are increas- ing. The UN peacekeeping force in Cyrpus, with 575 Canadians, has been in position since March 14, 1964. Its job is to prevent an outbreak of hostilities between the minority Turkish-Cypncts and the Greek-Oypriot majority and to promote a reconciliation of the communities In this re- gard, it has had only moderate success. Serious divisions re- main. This time, however, the con- flict is not between Turks and Greeks but among the Greeks themseVes, a situation in which the UN writ does not rua. Gen. George Gnvas, a terror- ist leader with yesrs of ex- perience, is leading Greek rebel forces against the government of Archbishop Makarios in a sustained effort to remove the figeo'd ideal of Enosis, or union with Greece. Grivas's network now spreads throughout the island and his skeleton army has an ample supply of arms and ammuni- tion, replenished by regular thefts. One of the first effiects of the upsurge of terrorism may be a breakdown in the discussions between Makarios and the Turks aimed at stabilizing the political situation in Cyprus. The Turks may believe that Makarios will be toppled in the end and that any agreement reached with him would be fu- tile. They also appear to believe that a serious division within the Greek community of might create a political vacuum v.hich the Turks could use to enhance their own politi- power Grivas led a successful revolt against British rule from 1955 to 1960 with Mafcarios standing by his side, extending his blessing to terrorism. But after inde- pendence anl years of fighting against the Turkish-Cypriots, which almost brought war with Turkey in 1967, Grivas was ex- iled to Athens. WORRIED ABOUT SIZE HULL, Que. (CP) The mayor of Hull is worried about the size of the town's 13 new po- lice recruits.

Both employers said they could return to work. They said Thursday they are in debt and their apart- ment rent is a month Mr. Sanchez said he asked the im- migration official how he and his wife could live without jobs. "He said there was nothing he could do about it and it was our problem." But Duncan Lalonde, regional director of immigration oper- ations, said he will make a spe- cial inquiry into their situation. In the meantime "they can continue with their he said. TO PUNISH PUSHERS TORONTO (CP) Ontario has declared war on drug push- ers.

Man hanged for murder despite plea PRETORIA (Reuter) An African man was hanged for murder here Thursday despite an llth-hour bid to save him from the g allows following a late reprieve for a white man convicted of the sams murder. Zacharia MakinitW, 21, and Kenneth George Wilson, 24, were both sentenced to death in May, 1972, for murder and rob- bery after they killed George Marinacos.

Tory party director quits job OTTAWA (CP) Liam O'Brian, 44, national director of the Conservative Party since October, 1970, has resigned to- take a position in his former firm, the Canada Trust Co. He said the decision in no way reflected a poor party showing in recent opinion polls and that he would stay if a fed- eral election was called in June.

Friday, April 1.3, 1973 THE LETHMIDGI HERALD 19 Motherless children play but there's no laughter AXBRTOGE, England (AP) The motherless children of Ax- bridge played together in the village school Thursday hut their games evoked no laughter or cries of delight. "Yes, they know about the air a teacher said. "Prob- ably, they are too young to un- derstand, but they know their mothers will not be coming back." This Somerset village and three of its close neighbors in the Mendip Hills country of southwest England have sud- denly lost many of their wom- enfolk. They perished in the Basel air disaster Tuesday when a British charter airliner plowed into a Swiss mountainside in bliz- zard. Only 39 survived. Ten persons still are missing in the snow- shrouded wreckage and 96 are krown to have died. Most of the passengers were women from Asbridce, GOB- gresbury, Wrington and Ched- and their deaths have left upward of 40 children mother- less. Local schools, closed for the Easter holidays, have been re- opened as play centres for the children while the fathers are in Switzerland performing the gnm task of identifying the vic- tims. Their play is mechanical and almost listless. A teacher who volunteered to help supervise the children, most aged under 10, said- "They can't help being affected by the atmosphere of grief here. This disaster has con- sumed all of Axbridge." There have been no tears But one little girl spent an hour drawing intently at a desk. When she left the sheet of paper to join her playmates, the teacher found a childish draw- ing of an airplane. Another drawing of a plane was pinned to a notice board. Two more were found strewn on the floor. "This crash is leaving an In- delible the teacher said. MOOD IS ANGER There -was a mood of mount- ing anger Ln the villages. One man explained. "It is now more than 48 hours since the plane went down and still we have not had a com- plete casualty list. But the com- pany has promised it won t bw long now. The waiting has been the hardest part to bear. "Three people in hospital aave not been identified. It would be less than human for amilies with relatives aboard the plane not to pile hope upon hope that the unidentified women are their loved ones."
