Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wtdnttdiy, April 24, 1974 LETHBRIDQE HERALD-17 Army coups underscore Africa disquiet LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) Military plots, coups and palace revolutions are no surprise in black Africa where political power often explodes from the barrel of a gun. More than 30 army coups or abrupt changes in government' in less than 15 years have un- derlined the instability that pervades Africa's fledgling countries. Almost two-thirds of the 250 million people in the independ- ent countries of black Africa are ruled by soldiers who took power by force. The 4.2 million impoverished people of the drought-stricken West African republic of Niger joined their Veterans on tour WOODSTOCK, Ont. (CP) Forty members of the Athabaskan Association left for Europe Tuesday on a tour to honor seamen killed when HMCS Athabaskan was sunk April 29, 1944, off the French coast by a German destroyer. On their arrival they will be guests of the Lord Mayor of London at a cocktail party. On April 28 a memorial service will be held in Plymouth, England, the ship's former home base. The seamen will cross the English Channel to France April 29 and visit the graves of their comrades near ranks when the army toppled the 15-year-old government of President Hamani Diori. Typical of other coup leaders Africa's latest strong man, Lt.-Col. Seyni Kounti, says the takeover was prompted by corruption and mismanagement. The coup in Niger means 15 countries in independent black Africa with a combined popu- lation of about 160 million people, now live under some form of military rule. About 92 million other Afri- cans live under a variety of ci- vilian governments in 19 coun- tries ranging from the Marxist dictatorship of Guinea to the moderate parliamentary democracy of little Gambia. The soldiers run Ghana, Togo, Dahomey, Mali, Nigeria, Upper Volta, Zaire, the Republic of the Congo, Sudan, Somali Republic, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, the Central African Republic and Niger. Africa's military regimes vary in style, politics and ideology, but one factor is con- spending to keep the troops in the barracks pacified. The soldier-rulers of black Africa spend more than a billion dollars a year on their armed forces, says one estimate. pil-rich Nigeria, Black Af- rica's most populous country with about 60 million people, spends more than million a year on its army, the largest standing force in tropical Africa. Foreigners still test entry rules Easy does it Crewmen aboard the Canadian Coast Guard ship Tracy coax into position a summer buoy (left) while its winter counterpart is hoisted aboard in Montreal har- bor Sunday. OTTAWA (CP) Canada is so attractive to many foreigners that they come here expecting to be allowed to stay despite immigration requirements, Immigration Minister Robert Andras said Tuesday. Appearing before the Com- mons immigration committee, Mr. Andras said the expectation of some foreigners that they will be allowed to remain once they are in Canada is unrealistic. v Only in the case of obvious compassionate grounds would the discretionary powers of the minister be used to allow people- to apply for landed immigrant status once in Canada. Ian Arrpl East) said despite the requirement that prospective immigrants apply outside the country, he regularly finds visitors to Can- ada in his Toronto office hoping that somehow they will be allowed to apply for landed immigrant status. "Has ministerial discretion been used so often that these people know others who have been given immigrant status after already being MAKING MISTAKE "These expectations are not Mr. Andras said. "I'd be very surprised if there's any justification for many people in Canada to say 'I know so-and-so who did it.' Answering a question from Peter Stollery he said the number of deportation inquiries and voluntary withdrawals of persons illegally in Canada has risen since the appeal system was restricted. In the six-month period from August, 1972, to March, 1973, there were such cases while in the corresponding period a year later, after the restrictions began, there were Mr. Andras said the screening system at points of entry is being reviewed to stop Illegal entrants. A two-part screening now is used, with a customs officer making the firt check and any necessary second check being handled by an immigration department officer "The nub of the question is whether this is being'handled fairly We are moving to examine and re-examine the whoie process." Canada has about deportations a year, Mr Andras said, compared with about mentioned in reports about annual deportations from the United States. "We're trying not be hawks or doves about this, but to be professional about it." Lincoln Alexander (PC-Hamilton West) questioned Mr. Andras about 1966 immigration policy statements that Canada needs as many immigrants as it can readily absorb This was still the basic posi- tion but will be subject to re- view during a study of imrni- gration department operations, Mr. Andras said. Cancer may relate to vegetarian diet KINGSTON, Jamaica (Reu- ter) Vegetarian communities in Britain and the United States may hold the answer to one of the Western world's worst killer diseases, bowel cancer, says a leading British surgeon. Prof. Harold Ellis, of Lon- don's Westminster Hospital, told doctors at a meeting here Monday that there is an urgent need for research among these communities into the rate of bowel filthy and disgusting disease The disease is the second most common cancer killer in the Western world, after lu% cancer. And yet it is rare :n Africa and the Far East There have been suggestions that it was racial or genetic in origin, but Africans and Chinese who migrated to the United States caught up with U.S. rates for the disease within a decade TOMORROW UNBELIEVABLE!
