LXV No. 112 LETHBR1DGK, ALBERTA, SATURDAY, APRIL 22, 1972 FIVE SECTIONS 74 PAGES South Quebec's 11-day posts strike collapses fall SAIGON (Reiiter) North Vietnamese troops attacked an- other provincial capital neur the besieged town ol An Loc Friday night as more government out- posts fell to a developing Com- munist thrust in the central highlands, military sources here reported today. The sources said Phuoc Binli, 73 miles north-northeast o[ Sai- gon, was hit by about rockets and mortar shells. So far in the 24-day offensive by the Communists, such an attack has heralded a siege. The situation in An oc, 25 miles southwest of Phuoc Binli, remained grave and was deteri- orating further with scattered fighting reported on the fringes of surrounding rubber planta- tions. Supplies wcro still being dropped by parachute to the government defenders. The 17-day siege of An Loc led to the International Red Cross in Saigon sending a coblo to its Geneva headquarters pro- posing that a call bo issued for a 24-hour ceasefire in An l.oc so thai civilian wounded and gees could be evacuated, Letlibriclgc man tackles Peru peak CALGARY (CP) A Cana- dian climbing team headed by Peter Fuhrmann, a profession- al mountaineer from Banff, will leave April 30 from Vancouver on an expedition to climb Mount Jluantsan in No-theri! Peru. The 10-man expedition Is sponsored by the Alpine Club oE Canada, which is contribut- ing fSOO and a loan of tents and other mountaineering equipment. The team includes Hugh Con- sldine, Calgary.

QUEBEC (CP) Hospital workers returned to their jobs overnight, liquor stores open Iwlay and schools and govern- ment departments get back to normal Monday following col- lapse of Quebec's llKiay public service strike as a result of emergency legislation passed Friday. The'end of the strike by about workers came with an nth-hour call Friday night from labor leaders for obedience of Hie law passed earlier in the day after almost 24 hours of non-stop debate in the national assembly. The tough emergency legisla- tion effectively eliminates any chance of another legal strika before July, 1974, because it says a contract will be imposed for two years if none has been negotiated by June 1, just 40 days from now. The most serious result of the strike launched April 11 was its crippliiis effect on Quebec's hos- pitals. Half the province's hospital beds were empty. Televised instructions to ter- minate the strike brought tha ihree leaders of a union com- mon front into line with the leg- islation at (lie last minute. It also capped a tense day of suspense in which the bitter union leaders earlier had rec- ommended that their members io defy the "disgusting" emer- gency to a trun- cheon clubbing tho union move- ment in their con- jinuing (he walkout. The law ordered a return to work at a.m. today. r.AIIOR CRISIS The emergency legislation provided fines of ?50 to a day for individuals who refused to return to work and of S5.000 to fsjd.GOO a day for unions and union functionaries encour- aged such a refusal. Premier Robert Bourassa, looking relieved, iolri a news conference 'there should be no surprise that these people have decided to respect a law passed by Hie legislature." Tho common front's reversal of its decision to continue the slrike showed there was a pro- found crisis in the Quebec union movement, he said. The union spokesmen told a news conference at midnight Friday night that they reversed their decision because they did not have enough lime to consult a representative number of members. Of those wtio did vote on tha return to low as 40 per cent of membership in some 53 per cent voted to defy the law, the common front leaders said. Fresh speculation B- on June OTTAWA rCP) Fresh spec- ulation about a .June election dominated parliamentary corri- dors Friday, but inside tha Commons MPs resumed a tradi- tional hranguc against the coun- try's transorlation system. The election talk, fed by tens- ing Commons remarks by Prime Minister Trudeau, was intensified with the knowledge that an election in considered a he called by May 1 to give pub- lic servants time to prepare vot- ers' lists. Irt the House, MPs used de- bute on the annual bill authoriz- ing Canadian National Railways and Air Canada lo borrow .money to voice their grievances against what (bey called bad rail and air service in their areas. The two .issues were related. Opposition MPs pressing for an election that could turn out tho Liberals saw a bogged-down Commons as one way to pro- voke Mr. Trudeau into going to the people for a new mandate. Sources in the prime minis- ter's office, meanwhile, said they (oo hope an election date will be set next wcrk. Hut otic; in Mr. Tnirfeau's cir- cle of advisers confessed igno- rance of the boss's plans. Majority of alcoholics can control drinking BALTIMORE f AF) Alcoholics can be taught to drink without getting drunk, Johns Hopkins medical researchers say. The researchers argue in an article to be published ioon in a British journal that the idea an alcoholic can't slup nflcr the first drink is false. rbrnnic voUmtrrr.s uri'o asked to Hjnil their drinking to no more lhan [ivo ounces a day, even though 2-i ounces were within easy reach. Rased on experiments over the last few year.s, the, researchers reported the alcoholics controlled Ihcir drinking per cent of the time. Facet! with the choice, others did not drink at all, The key to the trenlnicnt technique, conducted in hospital, that re or punishrncnl. such as the ivilhtlrawal nf hospital privileges, followed the nchrivior it was meant to enforce or discourage. Success in tint experiments has led researchers trt lielievc the techniques may bo applied to help alcoholics now considered beyond treatment, The article by Dr. Louis A.

IRA accused of acting Like Nazis at worst BELFAST (APj A dcnf niuto was beaten and tarred, a man was shot dend outside a tavern, an Irish girl engaged to a British soldier lied lo England and a prominent British politi- cian accused the Irish Hepubli- rati Army of acting: like the Nazis drive nearly half way up the moun- tain peak in this quest lor vol- canic remnants and ancient rocks. Commander John Young left the lunar ship Orion and stepped to the surface for a sec- ond seven-hour surface excur- sion at a.m. KST. Ho was followed t wo m inn te la ter by Charles M. Duke. They adjusted some scientific instruments, collected a few rocks, and headed south in tho moon buggy t o w a r d Stone, Mountain, 2 fi miles away. "We're on our Young called out. As Duke readied the rover, he suddenly noticed he was staring into a television camera relay- ing picture to Mission Control in Houston. "There's the big eye looking right at he quipped. "Boy, you can't ge! away with a tiling around here.'1 STARTED LATE The moon men started the ex- ploration an hour Jate because they got to bed late Friday night and Mission Control 4in Houston wanted them Lo be well rested. "We both got. about seven hours sleep, and 1 fee! real good, just Duke re- ported. "I slept like a baby and so did John. I woke up one time when I was cold and had to put on my sleeping bag." Y o u n g and Duke, who bouncer! and joked over the Descartes plateau for seven hours Friday, collected the two white rocks on their fir si lunar drive. Scientists said they could be important in understanding the moon's formation. Major target for the second seven-hour drive was Stone Mountain, a 1.300-foot peak 2.6 miles south of the landing site. Young and Duke hope to steer their moon car around boulders and craters about TOO feet up the terraced mountain lo gather rocks at various levels. Some of the material might have been heaved up from 500 feet below the surface by colcanic action. The activity follows a busy first day on the moon during which the moon men set up a scientific station and erected a fifth U.S. flag on the surface before starting their driving ex- pedition. EXPERIMENT RUINED The science station lost its iop priority experiment, a lion heat flow probe, when Young accidentally stumbled over a cable. Young apologized many times during tho day ami asked if a way could be figured to fix it. Ground controllers said they thought there was little chance nit hough various possibilities were under study. Mission Control cut Sunday's third excursion to five hours from seven to give the moon, men extra rest before they lift off late that clay. Originally, the astronauts had a sleep period planned before lift off. But this was eliminated in a new fliphl plan thnl hnd lo he written after HIP lunar ship Orion landed late Thursday be- cause of problems with the en- gine of the command ship.
