Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD _ Friday, August 6, 1971 tvincy Former dictator's daughter to try for presidency j BOGOTA (AP) Tlis daugh- ter of former diclator Gustavo Pinilla is expected lo be a Colombian presidential can- didate in 197-1 n-ilh the backing of the powerful Rojas political organization, which she runs. The possibility of her winning does not look remole. Maria Eugenia Hojas de Mor- eno, 3G, is regarded as the main architect of her father's 12- year-old Popular National Alli- ance, or AN'APO. She also is a national senafr H'ith her own political following, which calls her the ''people's captain." Although ROJ..S Pinilla is still the ANAPO's biggest attrac- tion, his age 71 and a LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By EVA BREWSTER COUTTS, ALBERTA If ycu did not read last week's Campus Cornel', please bear with me for a minute for I have to eat my words or. at least, some of them. Whilst basically true at the time of writing, by the time it appeared in print, the government had more than made up for the original prob- lems their Travel Counsellors had to face. They had been paid, received their uniforms ar_d their permaneu'. tee-pee shaped tourist lulls were con- structed or almost ready. There are two vital reasons for this statement apart from righting a wrong. The first and most important is the embar- rassment my article caused to the students involved. In a heated discussion it vr a s brought home to me just how much their understanding of democracy differs from mine. The student I talked to ac- cused me, not only of meddling in affairs which do not con- cern me, but even of jeopard- izing her future. I sincerely believe that any difficulties encountered in gov- ernment projects are public concern. There are too many people afraid to say what they think lor fear of reprisals, es- pecially young people. This, to my mind, is the most valid vindication for having written my original article: To show what democracy is all about. Whilst, under a dictatorship. T might not only lose my job for my candid comments, but also my life or liberty, in a democ- racy' every citizen has the right to honest criticism. Here, the government will strive for im- provements in its performance. This has been proved time and again and I wished the same were truj for all sections of so- ciety coming under1 the justi- fied criticism. This brings me to the second point 1 wished to make: When I said the government had "more than made I mean just that, for it cot only corrected the original short- comings of the tourist counsel- ling scheme, it also took up the cause of the eight studen'.s who were accused by the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta of being "fre- quently rude and often ignorant of the area in which they were supposed to counsel." Even had I not been assured in two separate interviews with their officials that previous statements did NOT apply to all the girls, 1 would have said going by the evidence avail- able that they were lacking good judgment. Having ac- cepted these students for fur- ther training until such time as their permanent huts would be ready, surely their inexperience and shortcomings could have been dealt with efficiently with- out all this petty publicity, in- jurious more to the image of tlie TCASA than to the students. The odds of eight out of eight students being rude and ignor- ant are about as high as win- ning a million dollars in a sweepstake. I have talked to a number of tourists who got in- formation from these girls and they had nothing b u t praise for their friendly and willing assistance. Why then all this adverse criticism? It leaves the impression of an over-in- volvement with politics, paro- chial attitude and the influence of the mighty Dollar.

El Espectador, an influential Bogota newspaper, says a vic- tory for the ANAPO in the pres idential elcctioa is inevitable unless feuding factions in Col- ombia's :wo traditional parties resolve their differences. Rojas Pinilla rulcct the coun- try for four after a coup in 1953. Trying for the presi- dency again in an election last year1, he lost narrowly. The victor. President Misael Pastrana Borrero, was the can- didate of Cobmbia's two tradi- tional pai-tics. Liberal and Con- servative, which have domi- nated the country's politics for a century. Maria Eugenia has avoided making any clear indications in public about her plans for 1974.

WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW Abraham, Martin and Clay Worry about the long- term safety of the pill has spurred scientists in Uicir search for a risk-free con- traceptive. On the horizon morning-after pills, and operations to re- verse sterilization. This re- port, the second of two arti- cles details these new ilcvel- oomcnls. By ALTON BLAKESLEE Associated Press Science Kriitor BETHESDA, Md. (AP) Population pressure is igniting an explosion of research- fuelled by imagination and dol- lars lo develop n c w and completely safe and effective methods of bivlh control. It promises new pills beyond the present pill, and improved devices, and it is prompting a volunteer army of men to un- dergo sterilization, with future promise of sterilization tech- niques, for men and women, that could be reversed. And totally unexpected dis- coveries may turn up. "The research people arc quite imaginative these says Dr. Philin A. Corf man, director of the Centre for Popu- lation Research of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development here. The centre spent S23.1 million this fiscal year lo support popu- lation research. SPUR FOR RESEARCH Some spur to expanded re- search stems from worry about long-term safety of the pill, with authorities disagreeing whether the increased risk associated, for example, with blood clotting warrants giving it up. Last year, funds were doubled for re.searcb in evaluating Ilio effect of oral contraceptives, to S3.5 million, in a program di- rected by Dr. John Schrogie. a clinical pharmacologist. This 1 year, the program will spend i about ?4.3 million, mostly for research on the pUl. i Tlie three main avenues of re- .search into new methods of i hiilh control involve drugs, sler- I Uizatioi and devices.
