Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Dtctmbtr 11, 1974 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD 45 Thant's body seen flashpoint of conflict By ARTHUR L. GAVSHON LONDON (AP) U Thant of Burma has become in death a focus of political discontent in his homeland, a role the former United Nations secretary-general shunned in life. Diplomats in London say deep troubles may lie ahead for Burmese President Ne Win's socialist regime because of an unlikely alliance of students and Buddhist monks lined up against it. Thant's body is serving as a possible flashpoint of conflict. Tens of thousands of students, backed by the Buddhist country's powerful religious leaders, seized the body during Thursday's funeral procession. They thought it was unfit to the honor and dignity of a man they consider a Burmese hero. They took the body to Ran- goon University and spurned an offer from authorities to provide a mausoleum beside the Shwedagon Pagoda, in the main Buddhist shrine in down- town Rangoon. Instead, the students began building a mausoleum on their campus. Ne Win, Burma's general- turned-president, kept dis- creetly in the background from the moment trouble flared, said diplomatic reports in London. The reports suggested he personally ordered the military and police to stay out of the conflict. As a result, tensions which had seemed near a breaking point eased, at least for the time being. But Asian and European diplomats are taking no bets that the crisis is over for Bur- ma's radical one-party socialist regime. They said it has dramatized deep hostilities over Ne Win's leadership and policies that have simmered since he took power in a 1962 coup. "Someone is going to have to give remarked a Eu- ropean diplomat who has served in Burma. "A student victory might only feed appe- tites for the removal of other grievances. Equally, a victory for the regime now seems as though it can be achieved only if force is used. "And if force is used, the troubles might spread far be- yond Rangoon into the hills and frontier regions near China. In those areas, local nationalists and tribes have never yet surrendered their independence to anyone."

Wife called hubby OTTAWA (CP) The Su- preme Court of Canada re- served decision Monday on whether an Edmonton man is entitled to a divorce from his wife because she called him such names as "Satan" and "a non-believer who hasn't seen the light." Lawyers for Helmut Ludwig Retzer argued that Esther Retzer deliberately used such language to break up the marriage and turn the four children against her husband. But lawyer Bernard Karrel, appearing for Mrs. Retzer, ar- gued that differences in reli- gious views cannot cause mental cruelty as alleged by the husband. Mr. Karrel pointed out that the husband had put up with the situation in his home for three years and that it was Mrs. Retzer who finally left the family home. Evidence was that for 12 years the couple lived a nor- mal family life until 1969, INSTALLATION HUMIDIFIERS 1709 2nd Ave. South Phone 328-5973 when Mrs. Retzer left the Lutheran Church to join the Seventh Day Adventist Church. L. L. Decore, appearing for the husband, said the mother then asked the children to give up meat in accordance with her new religion and referred to her husband's meals as gar- bage and unclean. He said the wife's "zeal and narrow-mindedness led her to call her husband "liar" and "Satan" in front of the children, that he didn't see the light, that he ate garbage and that he didn't love the children." "Eventually the children began calling him sinful and said Mr. Retzer's lawyer. He said the situation led to frustration on the husband's part and that he began taking tranquilizers. year's work deserves our safekeeping. You've made the deliveries. You've got your grain tickets.
