Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Copper miners trapped ior week CASA Ariz. A smaU earthmover bour- rowed through tons of debris Friday as rescue teams re- newed efforts to reach two men trapped for a week in a copper mine a quarter-mile below the desert. Jim project manager for Hecla Mining Co.'s Lake- shore said rescuers are hopeful the men are still alive. But he conceded temperatures could have risen lo 125 degrees in the area where the miners were entombed. Hunter said rescue teams had tunnelled through 75 per cent of the debris between them and David and Terry 24. every hope is that these men are going to be found alive and we have reason to believe they will Hunter said. Hecla officials arranged for a United States Air Force helicop- ter and an ambulance to stand by. A six-inch bore being drilled from the surface reached feet 120 feet shy of the chamber where the two were trapped. Rescue teams got one break when they found that a huge earthmover buried in the cave- in had been shoved against one side of the tunnel. This allowed rescuers to move in a smaller earthzuover to cut a five-foot- wide swath through the debris. The two men were trapped in a dead-end tunnel Aug. 17 when debris in a vertical shaft caved in. Attempts to make contact with the men by tapping on an air and water pipe leading into the cavern had been unsuccess- ful.

Speaking at his weekly news Mr. Schreyer said the federal policy is so totally unacceptable to Manitoba and the other two Prairie provinces that some action had to be ta- ken to prevent its implementa- tion. He described the policy as a in the to western and accused Otto federal minister respon- sible for the of trying to foist on western farm- ers a policy which would them patsies for live- stock producers in Eastern Manitoba's first move FBI began burglaries during Roosevelt years WASHINGTON A close associate of the late FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover said Friday the FBI began com- mitting burglaries to gain for- eign intelligence information more than 30 years on spe- cific authorization of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The break-ins began before the outbreak of the Second World the clouds began to the former high FBI official said. He said the break-ins were rare and concentrated mostly during the war years. But he confirmed accounts of other for- mer FBI men who said the break-ins continued under the administrations of Presidents Harry S. Dwight D. John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson.

The ends justify the The matter of FBI burglaries was raised by President Nixon in his news conference Wednes- when he defended his own short-lived approval of a 1970 intelligence plan that would authorized FBI break-ins to get foreign cryptographic in- formation. Nixon's plan also would have used burglaries against domes- tic radical groups such as the Black Panthers and Weath- ermen. The president reversed his approval of the plan be- cause Hoover objected to it. Nixon said such break-ins were widely authorized and well known during the Democratic administrations of Kennedy and i although two former I Democratic attorneys-general j have denied any knowledge of i such burglaries.
