Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 7, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE IETHBRIDCE HERAID Saturday, August 7, 1971 Moonquakes awaited HOUSTON (AP) Scientists Ere for a [lurry of moonquakes this weekend that might help pinpoint a region deep in the moon where 00 per cent of the lunar temblors ob- served seem to originate. They have speculated the re- piuns "might be pools of hot liq- uid rock. by all three seismomelers now on the lunar surface, including the new one left at the foot of the Apeninc Mountains by Apollo 15, Die experts hope they will be able to determine the precise source of the quakes. Dr. Gary Latham of Columbia University's Lamont-Doherly expects the temblors today or Sunday because Uie moon will be closest to earth. This is when earth's gravitational pull on her satellite will be greatest.

Lelhbridge girl's body found SASKATOON (CP) body found Sunday in the South Saskatchewan River has been identified as that of Glen- na Marie Sauter, 8, of Leth- bndge. The child was lost Jan. 2 af- ter she went to the river with some friends, stepped on the ice and disappeared. The badly decomposed body was spotted by three boys and coroner Dr. Sydney Fogel, who went to the scene, said he was satisfied it was the body of the missing child.

Using a seismometer left by Apolh 12 in the moon's Ocean of Storms in November, and one left in the lunar high- lands at Fra Mauro last Febru- ary by Apollo 14, Latham has determined that 80 per cent of the tremors come from a single region. The two instruments also lo- cated another 10 sources ol smaller seismic activity. "If the source of high activity is well to the south of the Apollo 12 and 14 .sites rather than to the north ajid between the three stations, we may not be able to see it on the Apollo 15 seismo- he said in a briefing. "But if it happens to fall be- tween those three stations, then I think there is very little doubt we'll see it. "And if we see it on all three instruments we will be able to locate it." The Apollo 12 and 14 seismo- meters are 100 miles apart just below the moon's equator and form the base of a triangle. The Apollo 15 instrument 600 miles to the northeast is the triangle's apex. The moonquakes, which occur "like clockwork" during each periger first were observed with the Apollo 12 seismometer. Based o n those observations, Latham suggested that a rille or WARM ACROSS COUNTRY Warm weather is expected to cover the country todcy wilh showers in parts of Alberta and the east coast.

But after o b s e r v i g the quakes with two instruments when the Apollo 14 seismometer was erected, Latham discovered the regions of activity deep in the moon and discarded the rille idea.

Only cool man is Colin Irwin PRUDHOE BAY, Alaska (Heuter) Colin Irwin, young Englishman who is at- tempting to become the first man to sail the Northwest Pas- sage, met with his first ice problems in the Arctic Ocean near here today. The British Petroleum camp received word from Irwin via radio fiat a 10-knot wind from the north had moved the Great Ice Pack into the shore leaving Irwin with no open water. He's reported to have taken shelter in the lee of Flaxman Island, one of a string of smal islands just off shore about 50 miles from here. One spokesman said that before today Irwin was "like moses." "Where he goes the water parts before him." A spokesman said that southerly wind that could move the ice pack away from shore Candidate appeals ruling on religious broadcasting CALGARY (CP) Rev.

Rev. Simpson says the broadcasts are only religious in content and are his main means of support. "If clergymen who become candidates for election must give up their work, then pub- ushers of newspapers who also run in elections should do the same." He said the interpretation of the act is discriminatory in that it does not deal equally with all candidates. Mr. Simpson protested to Pi- erre Juncau, chairman of the commission.

Egg board wins okay WINNIPEG (CP) Manitoba egg producers have voted over- whelmingly in favor of estab- lishment of an egg marketing board and a quota system that could cut production by 13 per cent in order to maintain prof- itable prices. Manitoba and Ontario are the only provinces that have not already established egg mar- keting boards. Charitable organizations to maintain autonomy VATICAN CITY (Reuter) The Vatican has officially de- nied it is seeking control of an estimated million collected annually by Roman Catholic charitable organizations around the world. It also denied Friday allega- tions that it wants to control such funds in order to make sure Roman Catholic money is only spent on charitable pro- jects in harmony with Vatican diplomacy. The denial followed the an- nouncement month by Pope Paul that a pontifical council would be created under his sec- retary of state and right hand man, Jean Cardinal Villot of France. A Vatican announcement at the time said the purpose of the council was to harmonize the activities of Roman Catholic charitable organizations i n order to avoid duplication of ef- fort. The council would not itself control funds, it said.

Lome Leach, chairman o[ the Manitoba Lotteries Com- mission, said the Grey Cup lot- tery would be the first of three annual lotteries. The other two will be based on the Canadian curling championships, the Brier, and the Manitoba Der- by. pressed fears that the result would be that the Vatican will control all Catholic charity and make sure it is spent in accord- ance with church policy. Normally Vatican meets criti- cal press comment either with stony silence or wilh a denial in the Vatican daily newspaper, Osservatore Romano. But in its explanatory note on "doubts" expressed by the press, which Bir.oirnled lo a full-length denial, the commission said each chari- table organization will keep its own autonomy of structure and function. It added the aim is merely to avoid duplication and noted that at present there is a "consider- able waste of personnel and of means."

Took lie test TORONTO (CP) Rae Heighes, whose apparent sui- cide has raised questions about the entire inquest procedure in Ontario, took a lie detector test a week ago to prove his innoc- ence in his wife's poisoning death, a Toronto private detec- tive -ays. The detective, John Jurens, who rdminisfcrcd the test in Owen Sound, Ont., said Friday he would not discuss the results of 'Jic lest. The 57-year-old Owen Sound man, a key figure in the inquest into the strychnine-poisoning of his wife, was found dead Fri- day, apparently of a self-m- i flictcd bullet wound. Mr. Jurens said he was not subpoenaed to testify alMHif the test at the inquest. Mr. Heighes' sons, Gerald and Rae said Friday their father took his life because ne was depressed over the treat- ment he felt he had been gelling at Ihe inquest. HOUNDED HIM' "They hounded Buster, 21, said in an interview. "At the beginning (of the in- quest) there was no indication at all but he got depressed later. Father asked for a lic-dct- cctor lest. He wanted It cleared up. WP never heard the results. He wanted them off his back." Gerald, ID, said his father told him a few days ago that he (the father) had nothing to live for. He quoted his father as say- ing: "My wife is dead, two .sons are married and the third is n drifter. He said his father added: "It looks as if they arc trying to blame it on me." Home grants won't up price EDMONTON (CP) Pre- mier Harry Strom said Friday his Social Credit government's olcctioii program to provide grants to purchasers of new homes will not increase the price of homes. The previously announced program drew criticism from NDP leader Grant Motley who said it would create a demand for new homes and line the pockets of developers and speculators. "The program will not. in- crease the price of homes be- cause contractors will not know whether or not the pur- chaser qualifies for a Uic premier said in a news re- lease.

FBI agents, state troopers and local police had staged a large-scale search of the wilds surrounding this remote com- munity for the men before cap- turing them. Police kept the roadblocks up tonight because they thought an- other person might have been involved in the robbery. None of the money was re- covered. vlous 12 months to qualify For the grant, the premier said. The program applies to the purchase of new, old and mo- bile homes throughout the province. The premier said that, If re- elected Aug. 30, the govern- ment will make the program effective Sept. 15. Defence bid for Cuba trips 'premature' MONTREAL (CP) Mr. Jus- tice Antonio Lamer has ruled as premature lawyer Robert Lem- ieux's request for a rogatory commission to go to Cuba to collect information which h e says is essential to the defense of three clients awaiting trial. Mr. Lemieux had subpoened Sharp, external affairs minister, to appear in court Fri- day to explain why he had refused to negotiate safe con- duct to Cuba for the commis- sion. Mr. Sharp did not appear and the federal lawyer representing him pointed out that in view of the judgement, Mr. Sharp's presence at the hearing was not necessary. Mr. Sharp is on vacation out- side Canada. Mr. Lemieux maintains that the innocence of Claude Mor- ency, Andre Roy and Francois Lanctot could he proved by ob- taining information from seven people who were sent to Cuba last fall in exchange for the safe release of kidnapped British trade commissioner, James Cross. The three men face more than 40 charges involving dynamite possession and conspiracy to kidnap. They are alleged to have robbed a University of Montreal credit union and to have planned to kidnap Hani- son Burgess, the American con- sul to Montreal.
