Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE WTHBRIDOI HIRAID Saturday, April 21, Middle East ivar city edgy Beirut is spy capital BEIRUT (AP) is the spy capital of the Middle East conflict, a battlefield in ths underground war between Palestinian guerrillas and Is- raeli commandos, where life is carried on against the occa- sional clatter "of machine-gun fire. Periodically the war touches foreigners. An Italian woman looks out her front door i.nd is gunned down by Israeli raiders. A Frenchman is kidnapped as a suspected Isreeh spy. Armored cars guard the United States embassy. most of the two million who annually disport themselves in Beirut's seaside hotel are blandly unaware of the tension and intrigue behind the glitter. One million people live here, nearly half the population of Lebanon. They are better- dressed than residents of other Arab capitals, have higher in- comes and seem to have more leisure time. Residents of stricter Moslem states come here to let their hair down. Saudi Arabians and American oil engineers from fly up from the Persian Gulf area for three-day benders. Bah- rainis and Dubais come to ogle, The machine-gun fire in quiet topless dancers. Beaches and residential streets, midnight ex- ski slopes are an hour plosions, bullet-riddled cars and apart. pools. or blood show the other Queen replaced in new series of stamps of A nervous Lebanese govern- ment teeters on the tightrope tourism and terrorism.

The camps are arsenals of il- legal from pis- tols to bazookas and anti-air- craft fertule recruit- ing grounds for the "fedayeen" guerrillas who stage raids across Israel's border 60 miles south of here. Israel intellig ence boasts devastating detail about guer- rila movements, strength and codes. Its accuracy was demon- strated April 10 when Israel raiders struck five guerrila buildings and assassinated three top leaders of Al Fatah, a a leading guerrila organization, in their Beirut apartments. The Lebanese government would love to muzzle the guer- rillas and preserve its "dolce vita" lifestyle. But any attempts to curb the fedayeen would antagonize the Moslem sector, supporters of the Palestinians, and risk a bloody civil var like the one which preceded the guerillas' ouster from Jordan in 1971. the ministers depict- ed, all deceased, will be on stamps in current use ransing from the one to six-cent value, while the Queen will remain on the eisht-cent issue. Post office officials sav the decision is part of a policy to place more emphasis on Can- ada's histoical heritage. They reject any sugggestion the Queen is beng ignored. The former prime ministers on the stamps will be Sir John A. Macdonald, Sir Wilfrid Lau- rier. Sir Robert Borden, Mac- kenzie R. B. Bennett and Lester Pearson.

Top-level talks hog down ECM in period of tough manoeuvering BRUSELS (CP) With its top-level negotiations about 1973-74 agricultural prices bog- pel down and May 1 as the deadline for an agreement, the European Common Market has entered a period of anxious ma- noeuvring. The dispersal Wednesday of agriculture ministers reoresent- ing the Market's nine member countries was followed by re- oorts that their next meeting nine days from now might settle for the average 2.76-per- cent increase in minimum prices paid to farmers which was recommended by the com- munity's executive commission. This would be for thou- sands of farmers, representa- tives of whom have been de- nouncing the commission's price proposals.' "Four litres of milk (about a gallon) to pay for a package of cigarettes." said one posted brandished by an unhappy farmer at a demonstration in northern France. The demonstration was at- tended by 30.000 farmers from Belgium, France and West Ger- many. WON'T ACCEPT IT Referring to a British call for the freezing of Common Market j agricultural prices, one speaker said this would be unacceptable (o the farmers "whose prices don't float like currencies." The British minister at next Weeks sessions on the price is- sue, Joseph Godber, will have to dilute his arguments for a stand-still if an agreement is to be reached.

In Paris, Le Figaro, a con- servative newspaper, said "the very maintenance of France's farming cssjmuniV' is at stake. The West Germans are citing the revaluation of the mark as the basis of their demands for higher prices than those recom- mended by the commission. But, faced with the French price pressures in the dairy sec- tor, the Dutch are arguing it is absurd to encourage higher pro- duction there when only recently tons of surplus butter were sold by the Market to Russia at bzirgain rates.
