Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Ihunday, Au0ul1 5, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERA1D 15 Goldberg has 'peanut shop9 WASHINGTON (AP) For- jner Supreme Court justice Ar- Lhirr J. Goldberg lias resigned as senior partner in a presti- gious New York City law firm and will return to Washington to run what he says will be "my own peanut shop." Goldberg, alST a former am- bassador to Hie United Nations, a former secretary of labor, i former general counsel to the United Steehvorkers and the AFL-CIO, and a former Demo- cratic candidate for governor of New York state, said the "pea- nut shop" will be his own one- man law firm.

ARTHUR GOLDBERG New venture Two held iii bomb hoax case SYDNEY, Australia (Reuler) Police arrested two men today in conneclion with a May bomb hoax when the Australian airline Qantas paid a ransom of to a "Mr. Drown." A police spokesman told a news conference the men, not identified, would face charges of demanding money with men- aces. It would be alleged, he added, that one of the two men was "Mr, Brown." This man would also be ac- cused of collecting the ransom from the airline's general man- ager. The hunt for "Mr. Brown" began May 26 after the ransom was paid in return for informa- tion about a barometric pres- sure bomb said by "Mr. Brown" to have been planted on a Qantas airliner bound for Hong Kong. Freiich missiles operational Indian handouts scored CALGAKY (CP) Govern- ment handouts are encouraging a "dependent mentality" among Canadian Indians, says lawyer William Wuttnnec. Mr. Wutttwee, a Crec, said the federal government spent 5300 million on Indians las', year and the amount increases annually. But larger efforts should be directed at integrating them into the rest of society. Indian cultural nationalists are hindering this absorption and are headed in the wrong direction, he said. "Aren't the new inventions of today more exciting than the histories of Mr. Wu'.tunee told an audi- ence at the University of Cal- gary it is a misconception that Indians are being discrimin- ated against. "I defy anyone to tell me we discriminate against Indians. "Indians should be given the same services as any other cit- izen." They have been brain-wash- ed into thinking they are being beaten down, he said, "They don't have to stay on the reservations. No one is keeping them there." PARIS (AP) The first nine rocket-firing units of France's land-based nuclear "strike force" has become operational, Defence Minister Michel Debre told the cabinet today. The range missiles, made operational Tuesday, are the second stage of the strike force. The first stage, super- sonic medium-range bombers with refuelling tankers, has been operational for about four years. The third stage, submarines with Polaris-type missiles, are due to go operational in the late 1370s. A possible fourth stage might involve inter-continental ballistic missiles. Rohol moil car expert dies MOSCOW (AP) Dr. Georgy N. Babakin, who played a lead- ing role in building the Soviet Union's robot moon car Lunok- hod 1, has died at the age of 56, Izvestia reported today. The government newspaper said Babakin "died suddenly" Tuesday, Jt gave no cause of death. The paper said he "ira.s a prominent specialist in creating a u t o m a t ic apparatuses for studying the moon and other planets of the solar system." Such apparatuses include the pioneer moon car, Lunokhod 1, which has been exploring the lunar surface since Nov. 17, and the Soviet Venus and liars probes. German bauk staff held hostage MUNICH (Reuter) Two ai'med men held the staff of a bank here hostage Wednesday and demanded a ransom of be- tween and Police ringed the bank in an eastern suburb of the Bavarian capital soon after the attackers barricaded themselves in the German Bank with their terri- fied Hostages. Police said they believe three members of the bank staff, in- cluding the manager and possi- bly a woman customer, are held by the attackers, whose mes- sages described themselves as members of a "Red Front." Worms attack crops RED DEER (CP1 A seri- ous infestation of the beet web worm is attacking rapeseed crops in central Alberta, a dis- trict agriculturalist said to- day. Bill Boyer said the worm is about one inch to inches long and attacks the leaves, s'.em and then the pod of the plant. He says it is similar to any army worm and is sometimes erroneously called an army worm by mistake. Mr. Boyer says the rapeseed plants turn white and once the worms attack the field the en- tire crop is usually destroyed. In Saskatchewan, the govern- ment is flying in pounds of chemicals from Texas to fight a widespread invasion of Bertha army worms which are destroying rapeseed crops. Death penalty wanted by Socred OTTAWA (CP) 'Criminals are generally bred by jxilicies opinions and of politi- cians and those who hold re- sponsibilily, Andre Fortin, par- liamentary leader of the Socia" Credit party, said Wednesday. Mr. Fortin, who represents Lolbiricre in the Commons, was Lnlemewed on the reasons why his psjty wants reinstatement of the death penalty for murder gene ally. At present the death penalty is invoked only for the murder of police officers or pirson guards. Mr. Fortin said the death penalty must be rcint reduced for murder in general not be- cause U is tho ideal means of prcvcniing murder but because "we have no choice." Capital punishment should be applied until governments haxc other melhnds of preventing the crijiic and of reforming persons likely to become criminals, he snid.

The Social Credit house lead- er also says most federal MPs favor tlie dealh penally. The death penally was abol- ished several years ago except for the murder of policemen or prison guards when the Com mons and Senate passed legisla- tion in a free vote in which party discipline was liflcd. The legislation was to apply for a trial period of five years. Mr. Fortin said, however, that the government did not consult the electorate when it sus pended the death penalty. It now was time for (Jie people to be consulted. He criticized the present for making only the murder it prison guards and police ofli cors subject to capital punish- nicnl. he asked.
