Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 4, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta PROTESTS PAPAl VISIT-Rev. Frederick Channing, a militant Protestant from New Zealand, talks to newsmen in Sydney, Australia, after being ejected from the city's Town Hail. He still wears inscription, "No Authority but the across his chest, .that he displayed inside the hall while Pope was there. Taos Indians give thanks for presentation of Blue Lake TAOS PUEBLO, N.M. (AP) Hundreds of nature-worship- ping Taos Indians gave tearful thanks in a Christian church the preservation of their sacred Blue Lake. Their reaction to the precedent-setting congressional decision yester day awarding them title to the lake and surrounding acres in Carson Na- tional Forest was a study in the dual religious attitudes of the area. The Indians say the land and lake are sacred to then- ancient native religion. But most of them also worship at the tiny, Population up TOKYO (Reuter) Japan had a population of on Oct. 1, the premier's office announced Wednesday. This represents an increase of during the last five years.

They see no conflict and have been practising both religions for many years. By a vote of 70 to 12, the Se- nate sent the bill to President Nixon, who had given, the Taos cause his endorsement in his In- dian affairs message to Con- gress July 8. The Taos, who number about have lived around Blue Lake since the 14th century. But President Theodore Roosevelt appropriated the land in 1906 for the Carson National Forest, and the Indians had since occupied it only on a permit basis. They had long complained of incursions by tourists and hunt- ers and refused cash compensa- tion for the land. Juan de Jesus Romero, 90- year-old spiritual leader of the Taos, was in Washington for the vote and afterward thanked Congress in his native tongue. Back home, his followers got the news by radio. Leaving their pueblo homes, they ran across a wooden bridge to the church. Many were crying. Pensions barrage sizzles OTTAWA (CP) A Democrat barrage at the gov ernment's old-age pension posals continued Thursday the Commons, with Grace Mac I n n i s (Vancouver-Kingsway saying the government plans ti 'take from the poor to give ti the destitute." "This bill has the sour smel of poverty about Mrs. Mai Innis said. "It has new refine- ments of torture, of nlggardli MS." Welfare Minister John Munr has said that while the basi pension will be frozen at month, an increase of 42 cents the supplement will be in creased to from fo single persons and to from for couples. The supplement is paid thos with no other income than .the basic pension. The NDP has argued that this will, leave some persons earning between an a year with only a increase. Furthermore, the two-per-cen annual increase in the old ag pension was being removed. RESTRAINT FAILS Mrs. Maclnnis said this was being done at a time when even John Young, chairman of the prices and incomes commission had 'given up" on moral sua sion as a means of persuadiii the rich to restrain inflation. Mrs. Maclnnis suggested straight monthly pensio for fee 1.7 million persons 6, and over, or a pension anc a supplement. The government also shoul make para-medical service1 available under insuranc schemes. Only powerful medica interests who wanted a monop- oly were preventing this, she said. Instead of "guaranteed pov erty" the government shoul offer a package of social justic to the pioneers of the country. Gason Isabelle par liamentary secretary to Mr Munro, said the white paper on social security was "a master piece." The selective approach to pen sions, he said, is superior to th universal approach because it is "more just."

BIEND CANADIAN PARK TILFQRD DISTIUERUS tra Friday, December 4, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID 25 Here's boxscore of cases By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The kidnapping of British trade commissioner James R. Cross by Quebec terrorists was one of at least 17 political kidnappings since September, 1909, mostly in the Western Hemisphere. Three of those kidnapped, including Quebec Labor Min- ister Pierre Laporte, were killed by their captors. La- porte, abducted by the Front de Liberation du Quebec five days after Cross was taken, was found strangled Oct. 17 in the trunk of a car in nearby St. Hubert. A U.S. police adviser in Uruguay, Dan Mitrione, was killed in August when the Uruguayan government refused terrorist demands for the release of 150 political prisoners. Claude L. Fly, a U.S. agronomist kidnapped about the same tune, still is believed held in Uruguay. Count Karl von Spreti, West German ambassador to Gua- temala, was abducted March 31 and found shot to death five days later when demands for release of 22 prisoners and in ransom were not met. Kidnapped most recently was Eugene Beihl, honorary West German consul at San Sebastian, Spain. Beihl was abducted Tuesday by a Basque separatist group seek- ing to prevent the trial by the Sixty U.S. marines were hostile to officers WASHINGTON (AP) A medical researcher said in Se- nate testimony here that inter- views with 60 former U.S. mar- ines convinced him they were more hostile toward the South Vietnamese army and their own officers than toward the Viet Cong. Dr. Charles Levy, a research associate at Harvard Medical School, quoted a former marine as telling how one man killed an army officer with a truck, and another put a booby trap in his commanding officer's tent. "They talked in terms of the Viet Cong and North Vietnam- ese army not being the primary focus of their Levy said in testimony prepared for the Senate veterans affairs sub- committee. "Instead, references to them are invariably posi- tive." Levy said the marines ex- pressed hostility toward two central targets: the South Viet- namese army, and American non-commissioned and commis- sioned officers. Levy said there is an over- whelming need for a training camp in reverse, to undo the at- titudes and resolve emotional problems growing out of Viet- nam combat.
