Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 18, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 - THf LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, April 18, 1970- A TALKING POINT FOR THE U.S. - Assi stant Secretary of State Joseph J. Sisco points as he talks with Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir in Tel Aviv Thursday, on the second day of his visit to Israel. Sisco is on a fact-finding tour of the Middle East. Sisco has called off his planned visit to Jordan because of violent anti-American demonstrations In Amman, the State Department announced in Washington Thursday. _ Alberta Rejects Marijuana Trudeau Blames Bertrand For Quebec Jobless Crisis OTTAWA (CP) -Prime Minister Trudeau Friday criticized Premier Jean-Jacques Ber-trand's Quebec government for what the prime minister said were policies that have created an employment crisis in the province. During Commons discussion of unemployment, Mr. Trudeau held the Union Nationale provincial government largely responsible for Quebec's high rate of unemployment. J. J. Greene, minister of mines, energy and resources, turned aside a suggestion for federal help to the Quebec mining industry by saying he saw no "useful point" in discussing it with the provincial government. The prime minister said there is a relationship between the rate of private investment and the rate of unemployment. Quebec would be better off if its rate of private investment were not the second lowest of all the provinces, he said. Mr. Trudeau was replying to Georges Valade (PC-Montreal Nixon To Report On Vietnam War EDMONTON (CP) - Legalization of marijuana is undesirable in light of society's existing morass of unsolved problems, the Alberta government said Friday. The stand was taken in a brief submitted by Robert Clark, minister of education and youth, to the LeDain federal inquiry into the non-medical use of drugs on the last day of its visit to Western Canada. It had heard submissions earlier in Regina, Saskatoon and Calgary advocating legalization of marijuana and other drugs, and arguments against legalization by several professional groups. "Marijuana is not the most dangerous available drug in terms of its hlarmful effects upon the individual," Mr. Clark said. "At the same time, it is a potent substance whose physical and psychological effects upon a substantial number of people are unpredictable. ..." PLAN CAMPAIGN It was announced the provincial government would spend at least $150,000 this year compiling drug research data compared with $63,000 last year and that it is willing to contribute a "substantial" amount to further joint research. "Since drug abuse cuts across all levels of our society, such programs must involve the Hippie Enters Election Race CAPE TOWN (AP) - Big Ben Dekker stands out in a land of frequently drab politicians. He is a hippie candidate for Parliament in next Wednesday's election. A six-foot-six graduate student at the University of Cape Town, he wears long hair and full beard, and favors beads, a head band, bright-hue shirts and shorts. "When, not if, I am in Parliament, I will act ats the conscience of the white people of South Africa," he says. His candidacy was originally regarded by the conservatives as a joke in questionable taste. The Nationalists, who rule the country, do not have a candidate in this Rondebosch district near Cape Town. Dekker's opponent is Sir de Villiers Graaff, leader of the United party, the schools, the police, our social service systems and our hospitals as well as a wide spectrum of citizens groups and parents." The Edmonton and District Council of Churches submitted a brief describing use and abuse of drugs as a symptom of the over-all problem rather than the problem itself. Rev. Edward M. Checkland said a drug-control system is inevitable and desirable if drug buyers are to be assured of the quality of their purchase. The ease with which persons can forge doctors' prescriptions to obtain controlled drugs such as amphetamines and barbiturates was described1 by the Alberta Pharmaceutical Association as proof of a need for more doctor-pharmacist liaison.

Sniper Fire Kills Youth SANTA BA R BA R A, Calif. (AP) - One youth was shot to death today as young activists smashed into a Bank of America branch at nearby Isla Vista to set it afire. Sheriff's deputies said the victim, Kevin P. Moran, 22, of Isla Vista, was killed by sniper fire from unknown demonstrators. . The shooting occurred during a second night of disturbances at the troubled student-populated community of Isla Vista, adja> cent to the University of California at Santa Barbara campus. The deputies, armed with carbines, said they lobbed tear-gas bombs to break up milling crowds. The number of youths ln-volved in the disturbances ranged up to 400 at times, deputies and reporters estimated. WASHINGTON (AP) - With the signs pointing to another major withdrawal of United States troops, President Nixon makes his fourth broadcast to the nation Monday night on his effort to scale down U.S. involvement in Vietnam.  The president's address, delayed four days after troubles developed on the Apollo 13 space flight, will originate from the Western White House at San Clemente, Calif. No time has been set for the so-called "update report," although the broadcast originally set Thursday had been scheduled for 9 p.m. Defence Secretary Melvin R. Laird provided Wednesday a possible tip to what the presi dent will say, asserting in a speech at Fort Riley, Kan., that Nixon "shortly will announce further reduction in U.S. personnel in Vietnam." "The return of the 1st Infan try Division from Vietnam to Fort Riley will be followed in the months immediately ahead by redeployment of additional thousands of American troops as our Vietnamization program marches on," he said. Speculation has put the troop withdrawal announcement at about 50,000 men. If so, this would bring the total number of troop withdrawals to 165,000, f^M^CUIRE'S mens WEAR The authorized force level in South Vietnam now is 434,000 men after three withdrawals announced by Nixon. There also are reports, not confirmed by the White House, that Nixon will talk about, naming a new chief peace negotiator at the Paris peace talks to replace Henry Cabot Lodge, who resigned.
