Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 31, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Editor dies SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Harassing questions about a rape victim's prior sex life will no longer be per- mitted in California trials un- der a new state law. Calling the measure a land- mark change in the state's 100-year-old rape statutes. Gov. Ronald Reagan signed the legislation Friday It strictly limits courtroom interrogation of victims. Supporters said the bill will reduce the embarrassment and intimidation that keeps many rape victims from reporting the crimes. "The jury tears her apart if she's had a boy-friend or has had sex in the past. We con- tend that's not relevant to whether she's been said Geraldine Greenwood, a lobbyist for the National Organization for Women. "The man's sexual history is not considered relevant to the trial, so the woman's shouldn't be Under the new law effective Jan. 1, testimony about an al- leged rape victim's prior sex- ual conduct cannot be introduced in a trial until a special hearing is held. The jury may hear the evi- dence only if the judge finds it is relevant to the credibility of the victim as a witness. It could not be used if it dealt with whether the victim consented to the act. Testimony is also permitted about the victim's prior sex- ual relationship, if any. with the defendant. Chief Adamson said the police chiefs association is recommending the federal justice department amend the Railway program clinched OTTAWA (CP) Three Ca- nadian firms have clinched a sale of railway equipment to Mexico, the start of a sales program that may total million in the next five years. An official of the Export De- velopment is lending Mexico the funds for the Friday that only the loan agreement needs to be signed to complete the sale. Hawker Siddeley Canada Ltd. will supply 150 gondola cars and 165 rail trucks worth million for its initial share of Mexico's railway rehabilitation plan. MLW Worthington Ltd. of Montreal will supply 15 diesel locomotives plus parts and tools for million. And Sydney Stee! Corp. will sell tons of steel rail for million. The equipment is to be delivered by next April. The project follows a mis- sion to Mexico last January by Trade Minister Alastair Gil- lespie, when Canadian partici- pation in the Mexican rail pro- gram was disou.'.sed. All three firms have privately done business in Mexico. American oil supply gap widens Saturday, August LETHBRIDGE Seaman freed HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) Even if it continues to conserve fuel, United States still won't have enough domestic relineries to meet its needs in 1977, oil industry officials say. The gap between domestic refining capacity and demand was only barrels a day in 1965. Now it is three million barrels. The gap is filled by im- porting refined petroleum products. These are more ex- pensive and their supply can be cut off quickly. Current US processing capacity is about 14.1 million barrels a day. The American Petroleum Institute, an in- dustry trade organization, es- timates nearly two million barrels of new capacity will be added by the end of 1977, but says the gap is likely to continue. "If anticipated increases in refining capacity are coupled with a consumption growth rate of 2.5 per cent, which is considerably below the rate of recent years, the difference between refining capacity and product demand will still be at the three million barrels a day level through says Wyatt Walker, a Continental Oil vice-president and chairman of the institute's refining general committee. Before the energy scare last winter, the annual consump- tion growth rate was five to six per cent. Federal energy administration officials say Americans are consuming fuel at a rate dead even with 1973, but some industry ex- perts say demand will begin to grow again by the end of the year. American oil firms say they have expansion projects in the works, but face many problems, including foreign crude oil supply uncertainties, pending tax and price-rollback legislation and difficulty in finding sites. Companies say the problem of location is particularly critical in East Coast areas, which consume 40 per cent of the country's petroleum products but have only 15 per cent of the refining capacity. Donald O'Hara, president of the National Petroleum Refi- ners Association, says the East Coast problem is simple: can't get building permits. Rejections in Maryland and New Hampshire in recent months were part of a pattern evident for 15 years along the East Coast. "Two companies have been turned down in Maine, two were turned down in Rhode Island, and Delaware passed a special statute setting aside a 10-mile strip in which no refineries would be per- mitted." It is known that the Federal Energy Administration is thinking about overcoming site problems through use of government land. Walker says another problem is the absence of U.S. ports with offshore terminals capable of handling super- tankers. "For some time to come, United States refineries are going to be dependent upon foreign crude oil." MOST RESIST CURRENT While most diamonds are highly resistant to electricity, a few are semi-conductors and serve as transistors in radio- telescopes. MOSCOW (AP) Simas Kudirka, a Lithuanian seaman convicted of treason for trying to defect to the United States, has been freed from prison, Soviet civil rights leader Andrei Sakharov said today., The action by Soviet author- ities may have cleared the way for Kudirka to leave for the U.S., the country of his mother's birth. William T. Gait, 51, managing editor of the Van- couver Sun, died Friday of lung cancer. Mr. Gait, who devoted most of his life to journalism, was a director of the Canadian Press and a member of the Managing Editors Conference. He also held membership in the Canadian Daily Newspaper Publishers Association and Associated Press Managing Editors. California curbs rape questioning Small Loans Act to make such interest rates illegal. There is no question that or- ganized crime in Canada "launders" illegally-gained money but this is difficult for police to prove. Crime groups active WINNIPEG (CP) The two big activities of organized crime in Canada are narcotics and loan-sharking, the Cana- dian Association of Chiefs of Police annual conference was told here. Delegates at a closed meeting heard a report of the association's nine-member organized crime committee say that drug trafficking is more widespread and increas- ing more rapidly than any other organized crime control problem. "Whereas such activities as loan-sharking and bookmak- ing are generally restricted to the more populous urban areas, the drug problem reaches into every com- munity." the report said. "In the recent past, seizures of drugs were usually in small quantities. Today, seizures in million-dollar quantities are becoming commonplace." The report also said organ- ized crime is not the only prin- cipal in the illicit drug trade. "Erstwhile legitimate members of the community are enticed into criminal ac- tivity by the potentially- immense profits." Organized crime in the country is naturally most ac- tive in the more populous Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia, said Metro Toronto Police Chief Harold Adamson in an inter- view. It is mainly a home-grown network with little inter- national involvement except in the areas of betting and the importing and distributing of heroin and cocaine as well as some hallucinogenic drugs. "There are no U.S. syn- dicate families involved in organized crime in Canada." NOT BUSINESSMEN Loan sharlcs are "not busi- nessmen as you and I know them" the police chief said, but some have another business as a front for their lending activities. Most are well-known to police "but what do you do with the thing." Charging exhorbitant interest in a private loan transaction is not illegal. Loan-sharking activities by organized crime in Canada are aimed at poor-risk borrowers and are used to finance criminal activities, the money from which may be then Invested in legitimate business, said the report. The Toronto chief also said the end result of some loan- shark operations has been as- sault and even murder of the client who couldn't pay off.
