Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Soturdoy, April 21, News in brief Commando attacks QE2 'a floating fortress' LONDON f AP) The luxury liner Queen Elizabeth 2, trans- forrned into a floating fortress for its voyage to Israel with some 600 Jews aboard, was blacked out early today in the moonlit Mediterranean about 100 miles from Israel, the ship's said. The blackout was a final pre- caution against possible attack by Arab terrorists on the lasc stage of its six-day voyage from Southampton, England. Big opium cargo seized SAIGON A cargo bassy. told reporters that if the of more than six tons of raw opium and morphine base seized off South Vietnam is pos- sibly the biggest shipment of il- legal narcotics ever captured in the world, a U.S. narcotics ex- pert said today.

Scali abstained instead of cast- ing a veto as the United States had indicated it might. China and the Soviet Union also ab- stained, as did Guinea. The United States had de- manded equal condemnation cf Israel and Palestinian terrorists for the upsurge of violence in the Middle Bast. DELETE WARNING At U.S. insistence, Britain and France removed from their j proposal a warning that the council would consider further steps against Israel should the attacks continue. But then the behind-the- scenes agreement for the sup- port of other nations apparently fell apart. Some African and Arab diplomats, and the Chi- nese, favored a return to stronger language regardless of whether the United States ve- toed it. The council approved Friday without formal vote an Egyp- tian request for a full-scale ac- counting of UN efforts to achieve peace in the Middle j East since the -June 1967 war. Medicine Hat to gain M. nitrogen plant EDMONTON (CP) A million nitrogen-processing fa- cility that will employ 200 per- sons will be built in Medicine Hat by Allarco Development Ltd. of Edmonton by the fall of 1975, the company has nounced. Allarco president and board chairman Dr. Charles Allard said the plant could provide the foundation for a large scale ammonia industry. The project will be underta- ken in conjunction with Alber- ta Gas Trunk Line Co. Ltd. of Calgary. Dr. Allard said the facility will consist of a ISO-million Australia seeks close Canada tie VANCOUVER (CP> Prime Mnister Gough Whitlwn of Australia said this week be would like to see stronger bonds between Canada and his coun- try.

Urea is a chem- ical used in making fertilizers, resins for the plywood industry and cattle feed supplements. When production is at full ca- pacity, tons of urea and tans of ammonia will be produced daily. Dr. Allard said engineering studies have started and con- struction is expected to begin in the spring of 1974. He said about 90 per cent of both products will be exported, mainly to the midwest and Pa- cific northwest in the United States. The remainder will be sold in Canada. Allarco hopes to build other ammonia plants in Medicine Hat and is also {studying the possibility of building an am- monia pipeline from Medicine Hat to connect with one run- nins; from Nebraska to the U.S. gulf coast. The additional plant and pipeline plans are contingent on developments in the interna- tional market, Dr. Allard said. He said the plants would re- quire 145 million cubic feet of natural gas daily. Financing will be essentially private, but Allarco is in the process of preparing an appli- cation to the federal de- partment, of regional economic expansion, Dr. Allard said.

SEPT. 12th: Camped on the Belly River. Conferred with the Asst. Commissioner and the Inspectors as to the present state of affairs. There was but one opinion regarding the ocrf'cn of the Force going back viz. that it should return forthwith. All feel satisfied that it would be impossible to take the stores through to Edmontcn owing to the condition of the horses. A post on this part of the Bow cor Belly Eiver is out of the ques- tion as there is neither grass or wood here and not much wood on Bow River near the junction. The Sweet Grass Hills or West Butte near the Boundary Line promises well for a pest, good grass, good wood and water and only about 80 miles from Fcrt Bentoa in Montana. This is an im- portant ooint as it is from that place that the Force will have to obtain its supplies, prov'sions. etc. in any case. I under- stand that the whiskey traders are r.ct here now but are in the vicinity of Fcrt Benton and that they propose remaining there till the Force returns. A po-t st the Forks o: the Bow and Belly Rivers turns out to be three log huts without rcofs in which some fellows occasionally stopped when trapping, or rather poisoning wolves. I have sent out a party to explore for the Fort 15 miies from the Fcrks but as thsre is no trail in the vicinity I doubt their finding it. The "Forts" are ap- parently log shanties in which traders or trappers pass the winter. They are usually burnt down when they leave as was the case with the cne at Cypress Hills where the Assiniboines were murdered in the spring of 1873. Although most of the participants in the Cynress Hills affair ruffians from Benton. the so-called Whoop-Up as far as I can understand is the only fcrt which has a Iccal habitation as well as a name. It is princioally a trading post of the firm of Baker and Co. out of Fc-rt Benton. These are highly respectable merchants who do not sell wsiskey or spirits. The cnly actual indicaticns of whiskey trading as yet discovered is ths hsad of a cask with Kelly. Bourbon printed thereon on the bench.

Some 4.000 people gather in a village in Pampanga province, 50 miles north of Manila, to watch two steel spikes driven through the palms of 31-year-old Juanito Piring on a 10-foot-high wooden cross. He was nailed to the cross for five seconds and remained con- scious throughout. He said his purpose was to make people re- member Christ.
