Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THf LfTMMOGC HEUID 31 Phone Call Brings Help To People With Crisis EDMONTON (CP) "You might think it takes a af nerve to call us and spill your the advertisement reads. "Well it does-but it's worth it." The advertisement it for Students Help, a volunteer or- ganization of students at the University of Alberta whose members sit by the phone from 7 p.m. lo midnight every day, waiting lo hear about whatever crisis someone might be suffering. The two-year-old service has heard them all. Nothing seems to take them off guard, whether it be an appeal for an abortion or a request for movie starting times. "You name ft and we've probably heard says John Cann, the 27-year-oJd co-ordi- nator. "If we can't help you, we can refer you to someone who can." The service is designed to play a dual role: to provide a sympathetic ear and, when neceaury, act as a referral service.

"When you heir that, you know you are talking to some- one who is pretty upset." Bui there is no way of tell- ing whether a potential sui- cide has been prevented or if it will end as "a crumpled under the High Level Bridge." Hawks, Doves Lock Horns By MICHAEL AUTOS JERUSALEM (Reuters) rift between hawks and doves in the coalition cabinet has burst into the open f oUowing a blister- ing attack by a right-wing min- ister against Foreign Minister AbbaEban. Minister Without Portfolio Menahem Begin, leader of the Nationalist Gahal party and fiery former bead of the Irgun, a Jewish underground move- ment which fought the British mandate authorities after the Second World .War, attacked Eban as a "boor and unintelli- gent." Addressing a party meeting Begin, a leading hawk, accused Eban, considered a dove, of "deliberately and wilfully dis- torting cabinet decisions" when he said the government bad not decided on setting up a Jewish Quarter in Hebron. But far more important than the ojuarter question are the un- derlying conflicts on major pol- icy issues separating various cabinet elements. The major one is whether Is- rael should show more flexibil- ity in its general attitude to- wards an aspects of the Israeli- Arab problem. DISLIKES RIGIDITY Eban, supported by the two left-wing Mapam party minis- ters, is said to favor the shed- ding of what he considers standard curriculum if defeat- ing school'! think" philosophy. D.

MARRIED SECRETLY Terry Block of Vancouver and Laurel Ward of Delta, Mani- toba, leading mimbers of Toronto cost of Hair, skip down a street in Toronto's Yorkville district after announcing they secretly married. They' said rrwy wert married secretly to avoid publicity. Mvtlivr wrtK MfnvmtMn ticvaNi present rigid policy positions and the adoption of a much more flexible attitude. Finance Minister Pinhas Sapir, a possible successor to Golda Meir as. premier, and the Labor party's new Secretary- General, Arye Kliav, have been reported to lean towards this softer line. Aligned against them are the six right-wing Gahal ministers as well as Mrs. Men- herself and Defence Minister Moshe Dayan. The latter two are not driven by the same nationalistic ideological motives as.. Begin, who once advocated a Jewish state in its historical borders from the Nik to the Euphrates. All, however, bold that a final peace solution must come through direct negotiations with the point the Arab na- tions have assiduously rejected since the six-day'war in U87. Other points at issue between the two factions include the question of a political initiative aimed at restoring the ceasefire agreement wift Egypt, the so- eaUed GoUmann peace mission. IDEA TURNED DOWN On the first Mrs. Meir, sup- ported by the vast majority of Hie cabinet, reported to have rejected Eban's suggestion that there should be some politi- cal initiative with Cain to res- tore the Suet canal ceasefire which President Nasser publicly repudiated last year. On the second-the cabinet'.- rejection of a reported lion from Nasser to talk to Dr. Nahum Goldroam, president of the World Jewish Eban was apparently on the side of the majority although Mapam felt the matter had been badly handled by the gov- ernment. In his attack on Eban on the Hebron question Begin said the cabinet had decided on set- ting up a Jewish quarter in the town. Eban and Mapam members are reported lo fee! that any settlement in Hebron as wen as elsewhere might commit Israel to retention of occupied areas and thus tie its hands in nego- tiations. Begin also attacked Eban for a recent newspaper interview in which he said that "mathemati- cally speaking, an equation could be set up between Nasser, the Fatah (guerrillas) and those m Israel wlio insist on an of the land of Israel." "How dare he draw such com- Begin said, "If he had said such a thing hi the Knesset, his wonte would have been erased from the record. He is a boor and unintelligent." He condemned the whole GoWmann mission as Kafka- esque and called Le Monde cor- respondent Eric Rouleau, said to have played a part in the af- fair, "another Egyptian agent, the kind of Jew who collabo- rated with the Nazis." Despite the serious cabinet differences, there is no danger of break-up w tag at the Arabs maintain their present of refusing any peace set- tlement with Israel. But any flexibility in the Arab i poBtion could change thu. One reprter was killed.
