Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wodneidtiy, Augutt IV, 1970- Londoners Still Jittery Following Bomb Threats LONDON (AP) Bomb scares cleared 39 movie houses, the House of Commons ami the British museum's read- ing .room Tuesday night us po- lice searched for terrorists in the British capital and three other cities. No bombs were found. Bomb squads also were called Hickel Impressed With Arctic Tour ANCHORAGE, Alaska (CP) Walter Hickel, U.S. secretary of the interior, said Tuesday night his four-day tour of the Canadian Arctic with Northern Development Minister Jean Chretien had been "both stimu- lating and creative." "It has been an important tour, symbolic of the serious- ness with which both our na- tions view the northern poten- tial." He spoke at a dinner given by a service club in honor of his 51st birthday. As Chretien's guest, the secre- tary visited both the Eastern and Western arctic of Canada, stopping at a number of poten- tial resource developments. Hickel had high praise for the research into arctic pipelines being conducted in Inuvik, in the Northwest Territories. He said the work there had the jump on similar experiments in the U.S. The Inuvik experiments would show that pipelines could be built across the Arctic with no fear of pollution or of disrupting wildlife, Hickel predicted. He said he was particularly Impressed with the Canadian experiment in laying pipe in varying types in gravel above the permafrost. In this way, the pipe was not unsightly and allowed animals to cross it with ease. Chretien said Canada and the U.S. share common arctic prob- lems and the tour with Hickel convinced him that co-operation between the two countries is the one way to defeat them.

Feeding Ground Experiment Attracting Migratory Birds Indochina War Critics Rap Agneiv WASHINGTON (neuters) Leading Semite critics of the Indochina war accused Vice- Presidont S o i r o T. Agnew Tuesday of helping to create a dangerous and repressive cli- mate in the United States simi- lar to that of the Nazi and Mc- Carthy eras. In one of the sharpest Seri- ate reactions to a vice-presi- dential speech, the senators an- grily attacked Agnew for re- marks he made Monday. Agnew said in Miami, Fla., that a pending Senate amend- ment calling for a set date for withdrawing United States troops from Indochina was blueprint for America's first- ever defeat and that its spon- sors don't care. GRANDE PRAIRIE (CP) An experiment to keep migra- ory ducks and geese off cul- tivated land appears to be vorking, an Alberta govern- ment biologist said Tuesday.' Thomas E. Burgess of the fish and wildlife division said three lure crops and a bait sta- tion have been established in the Grande Prairie area. "We are very optimistic at this point about the success of the Mr. Burgess Land Development Tenders Delay Sought By Lougheec CALGARY (CP) Opposi ion Leader Peter Lougheec Tuesday asked tlie Alberta gov- rnrnent not to accept tenders or natural resource develop- ment on lands that could be sel side as wilderness areas. In a telegram to A. R. Pat- ek, minister of mines anc minerals, Mr. Lougheed saic urther development in such should not be permittee ntil the legislature enacts (ildemess bill next spring. Mr. Lougheed, leader of the regressive Conservative arty, said a delay of about ne year in accepting tenders ould affect only a small por- on of the province's natural esource development poten- al. Despite opposition from con- .ervation groups, a provincial overnment sale of petroleum ind natural gas leases in five and1 parcels in southwestern Uberta was held Tuesday.

Michener Receives Fox Pelts SACHS HARBOUR, N.W.T (CP) The people of thi small, remote Eskimo settle ment presented Gov.-Gen. Ro- land Michener with three whib fox pelts Tuesday hi honor o his visit to the settlement. The white fox has been the main livelihood for the abou 120 residents of the village, both as meat, and as a cash income for the high-fashion fur pelts. Now, however, residents have complained that oil exploration on Banks Island, where Sachs Harbour is the main settlement is disrupting the hunting anc trapping. A visit earlier this month by Jean Chretien, minis ter of northern affairs, has only partly reassured them and there has been some talk of the resi- dents taking out an injunction to stop existing groups. In his speech to the people oi Sachs Harbour, as in other ad- dresses during this 10-day West- ern Arctic tour, the Governor- General stressed conservation and protection of the natural en- vironment. He said the people in southern Canada, now are becoming aware of unexpected hazards that accompany development, are recognizing the needs of the north and want to help.

Anyone will tell you that the leaders are enjoying tha advantages of military training and University subsidization through the Regular Officer Training Plan If you plan to enter or return to University in the fall of 1970 as an Undergrad, you should know about the op- portunities that the Canadian Armed Forces can offer you as an ROTP cadet. You would continue your civilian studies toward a degree at your University. TO learn more about this excellent plan, corns in, telephone or write to: CANADIAN FORCES RECRUITING CENTRE, 115 8th Avenue S.W. (On Tho Mall) Calgary 2, Alberta. Phono: 269-6736 THE REGULAR OFFICER TRAINING PIAN FOR UNIVERSITY UNDERGRADUATES said. "W.e have an estimated ducks and about 150 Can- ada geese feeding at our bait station near La Glace Lake." The bait station covers about an acre of marshland near the lake, about 275 miles northwest of Edmonton. The wildlife workers use a grain blower to spread barley over the feeding ground. The Grand Prairie area was chosen for the experiment as about 25 per cent of the claims for duck damage in Alberta arise in a region which has about seven per cent of the crop land. The three lure crops which the wildlife experts hope will be used heavily when the ducks and geese start migrating in- clude a quarter section of bar- ley on the south shore of Bear Lake, a flooded quarter section on the east shore of Beaver Lake and a 70-acre field on Buffalo Lake. "We try to attract the ducks to the lure crops by silhouette Mr. Burgess said. "In conjunction with the decoys, we use a. scare program on other fields in the area." Fescue Seed Situation Confused WINNIPEG (CP) A. M. Runciman, president of United Grain Growers, said Tuesday there is "widespread con- fusion" in northern Alberta about the situation between the seed bade and .the National Farmers Union over the sale of creeping red fescue. NFU members are seeking an increase hi the price of fescue seed to 26 cents a pound from 15 cents. 'Two main causes of mis- understanding are charges that UGG has issued an injunction against elevators in the Peace River area and that the com- pany refuses to 'negotiate' with the farmers Mr. Runci- nran said. "Both charges are wrong." The elevator company presi- dent said UGG had taken out an injunction against "illegal" picketing of its Edmonton seed plant was preventing de- liveries and shipments. 'United Grain Growers has an obligation to all farmer members and customers to accept grain and seed if offered for sale, and an injunction was necessary to meet this obliga- tion. To this date no injunction las been issued against pickets around any other UGG plant or elevator in western Canada." The charge that UGG will not negotiate with the NFU "certainly needs llr. Runciman said. Police Seek Identity Of Terrorists QUEBEC (CP) Provincial police are trying to establish the identity of two self-proclaimed Quebec terrorists training with Palestinian commandos in Jor- dan, a government spokesman said Tuesday. Gerald Boisyert, associate deputy minister in the Quebec justice department, was com- menting in an interview on a story which appeared last Sat- urday in Weekend magazine. The article described the ac- tivities and aims of the two men, aged 22 and 27 3rears, who claimed to be former members of the separatist-terrorist Front de Liberation Quebecois. The FLQ has claimed responsibility for scores of bombings in Quebec since 1963. The too men, photographed with scarves covering their faces, were quoted as saying they plan to return to Quebec and carry out a program of selective assassinations. Charging Agnew with trying to prevent Congress from play- ing its constitutional role in the conduct of foreign policy, amendment co-sponsor Mark llatfield (Rep. Ore) said: "Tlie most repressive periods in history have occurred -when public debate has been silenced by those who abused positions of political power. This has not been the exclusive domain of demagogues or dictators, ei- ther on the left or right. "Nazi Germany, McCarthy- ism, Hungary and Czechoslova- kia all stand as examples of people intimidated into silence and Hatfield said. "Tlie real threat to our Am- erican way of life is within the household of America, rather than miles away in Indo- china." Senator J. William Fulbright, chairman of the foreign rela- tions committee and frequent target of Agnew's attacks, said thevice-president's stand against the war critics was even more dangerous than that of the late Senator Joseph Mc- Carthy in the 1950s against al- leged Communists. Agnew's speeches, he said, were far more dangerous "be- cause they come from the vice- president, who is a member of the executive branch of gov- ernment who might becoma president." Broadview Man Feared Drowned LAC STE. ANNE (CP) Victor James Alexson, 19, of Broadview, Sask., was pre- sumed drowned after a search in Lac Ste. Anne, 35 miles west of Edmonton. R'CMP said Alexson was last seen on the lake Sunday in a small aluminum rowboat. Police abandoned a search by boat because of rough weather and switched to a plane.
