Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, August 23, 1974 Terrorist network activities checked ROME (Reuter) Police investigating neo-Fascist violence in Italy believe a "Munich connection" may lead to a trans- European network of extreme rightists possibly involved in this month's bombing of a Rome-Munich express train at Bologna, informed sources said Thursday. The sources said authorities are investigating the relation- ship between Italian rightists and their counterparts in Greece, Spain, Portugal and West Germany. Inquiries were reported centring on a neo-Fascist "summit" believed to have been held recently in Munich, West Germany, where attacks such as the Aug. 4 train bombing which killed 12 people may have been planned. A top secret service official said the "Munich Connection" may be a key to Italian investigations. "It is well known that there are many active neo-Nazi cells in he said. Police are also sifting reports that a former Italian secret ser- vice informer now being questioned in connection with a 1969 Milan bomb attack may have had links with the socalled "Paladin" organization, an umbrella body made up of right- wing terrorist groups around Europe. 4Tent city' for students? High living By ROD CURRIE The Canadian Press An irony of the continuing Cyprus crisis is that the so- called "Soviet in- volving the return of Arch- bishop Makarios. is getting an airing as an eventual com- promise likely to appeal to all, principals involved. It would not, of course, be to the total satisfaction of the United States or Turkey, to- gether generally blamed for contributing to the situation which now has somewhat en- hanced Makarios's prospects. But the view is that the second Turkish offensive to divide the island, which in Greek eyes the Americans practically condoned, has so altered the Cyprus situation that both now might be forced to welcome Makarios, albeit reluctantly. From the Greek point of view, the fledgling Athens government of Prime SAND gravel ASPHALT iTOLLESTRUP1 SAND and GRAVEL f Construction Co. Ltd. PHONE 328-8196 Minister Caramanlis would hope that a reinstated Makarios would lend his prestige to the job of healing wounded Greek national pride. And, observers suggest, if Makarios eventually returned as a republic or even of a federation of it might prove a ma- jor step toward repairing the damage to NATO that oc- curred when Greece withdrew, endangering the already shaky southern flank. Observers who support the return of Makarios agree that an essential first step in Cyprus is to try to dampen Greek-Turkish hatred, and that the archbishop may be the best man for the job. In this context, there is wide agreement that Acting Presi- dent Glafkos Clerides is a political lightweight unable to control Greek-Cypriot tempers in the wake of their humiliation. But with peace talks col- lapsed it is unlikely there will be any early move on a new president. Among those who look kind- ly on the return of Makarios is Lawrence Durrell, author of the haunting Bitter Lemons novel set in Cyprus in the 1950s, who says the Soviet solution "may be the only one still acceptable to the two fac- tions."

Soviet solution may be answer VANCOUVER (CP) Mayor Art Phillips yesterday appealed to Vancouver residents to open their homes to University of British Columbia students this year. Mr. Phillips said there is a "desperate" lack of housing for students this fall. "They're even talking of such desperate things as a tent Mr. Phillips said. He said the student housing office has a waiting list of 000 names which would have undoubtedly been much longer, but many students have apparently given up hope of finding accommodations The mayor said the long- term answer is for the univer- sity to press the provincial government for a massive program to build student housing on the UBC campus. GUELPH, Ont. (CP) The United Church of Canada gave general approval Thursday to the idea of union with the Anglican Church of Canada. A vote of the 26th general council of the United Church was overwhelming in favor of the principle of union and the assembly called on the Anglican Church to submit by Nov. 30 any revisions it wishes to make in the plan of union now under consideration. The vote said the general council is convinced that un- ion represents "the direction in which the United Church of Canada should move." Union has been under negotiation between the two churches since 1943. The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) also is participating. The council set up a schedule for consideration of the union proposal. The plan will go to the three national executives early in 1975 and then be considered by the cor- porate bodies of the churches that summer. A plebiscite of congregations and synods will follow in 1976, with final approval to be decided by a general meeting in 1977. Delegates were told the en- tire plan will change if one of the churches decides not to go along with the move. The vote on union followed a long and involved session on other business. Efforts earlier to push through resolutions on inter- national affairs with a min- imum of debate failed. In nearly an hour of wrangl- ing in the heat of a steamy uni- versity gymnasium, only four of 14 resolutions from the standing committee on the church and international af- fairs were approved. Commissioners to this highest court of the church began snapping at each other, and further debate on inter- national affairs was put off to another day. The session is scheduled to end Saturday, and many topics on the agenda are ex- pected never to be reached. One commissioner deplored time-wasting trivialities he said were costing the church "about an hour." It cost more than to bring the 453 commissioners from across the country to this biennial meeting which sets policy for Canada's largest Protestant denomination. Thursday's session was be- hind schedule from the start and the report of the inter- national committee was late coming to the floor. To save time, the com- mittee asked that no amendments be made to its resolutions making foreign- policy suggestions to the federal government, since these were well-considered in committee. But that didn't sit well with the commissioners. One said: "If this com- mittee spends that amount of time and money on framing resolution we can't discuss, why bring them forward at Some of the resolutions are lengthy, circulated ahead of time to all delegates, and it was too much for one com- missioner when the com- mittee's secictoiy insisted upon reading them aloud in full. The commissioner said: "I can read. Get to the questions." That comment didn't sit well with the secretary, who plodded through his text anyway. Several speakers protested what they said was Canada's refusal to admit more refugees from Chile.
