Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, December 12, 1974 British MPs vote down restoration of hanging LONDON (AP) The British House of Commons, voting two hours after a terrorist bomb exploded in a club on Piccadilly Circus, re- jected Wednesday night calls to bring back hanging for terrorist killers. The lawmakers voted 369 to 217 against a proposal that had called for introducing the death penalty for terrorists such as those whose actions have killed 50 persons in bom- bings in England over the last two years. No injuries were reported in the Wednesday night bom- bing. SEE THE LENS THAT DARKENS IN THE SUNLIGHT (VARIGRAY) Scotland Yard said two men tossed a bomb through a win- dow into the bar of the Naval and Military Club in Piccadil- ly and escaped through the winding streets, firing two shots at a pursuing cab driver. The six-hour debate on restoring the death penalty ended in a "free mean- ing that the members were able to vote according to their consciences without being bound to their respective political parties. Parliamentary sources had expected a substantial majori- ty against hanging, which was abolished in 1965 as the penal- ty for murder. The vote rejected an amendment submitted by Conservative party member Jill Knight, calling for execu- tion "as the penalty for acts of terrorism causing death The amendment was to a motion by Labor's Brian Walden asserting that a return to capital punishment "would neither deter terrorists nor increase the safety of the public." Both Mrs. Knight and Walden blamed the outlawed Irish Republican Army, fighting to expel the British from Ireland, for the wave of bombing that has killed 27 persons and wounded more than 300 in England. In opening debate, Walden said capital punishment would not deter IRA terrorists. "Death is their business. It is from the ghastly images of death that they draw their in- spiration. But Mrs. Knight, proposing her amendment, declared: "These are not ordinary killers and we cannot treat them as such. "To them, appeasement means surrender. To them, only fools and vanquished use kid gloves Their aim is to defeat Britain and, unless we stiffen our resolve, they will succeed." Interpreting the News Fears raised for future role of UN WASHINGTON (CP) The future role of the United the continued existence of that body as a force for being brought into question here in a growing confrontation between the United States and countries of the Third World coalition. With the 29th General Assembly in its waning days, U.S. critics of that body say that it was State Secretary Henry Kis- not a high UN negotiated the ceasefire between Israel and the Arabs. And they cite UN inac- tion in dealing with inter- national terrorism as a further example of dis- array within the assembly. An example of the schism developing between the major powers, primari- ly the U.S., and the Third World countries within the UN came with the warning by U.S. Ambassador John Scali that the world body should beware the "tyranny of the majority." His contention was countered by Algerian Am- bassador Abdellatif Raphal, who retorted that too long has the "European minority" held sway. He urged Western critics to move forward with the main current in the UN "without regrets for the past that is saying that an "unchanging organization is condemned to death." Seventy-one of the 100 members of the U.S. Senate, in a letter to Presi- dent Ford, deplored the prominence given the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) when the UN allowed its chief, Yasser Arafat to speak last month. For this, and other reasons, said Senator Henry Jackson (Dem. "The beginning of .he end" of the UN might be in sight. Senator Hubert Humphrey (Dem. Minn.) added: "It is entirely possible that the UN in 1974 could be like the League of Nations of the Humphrey was drawing a parallel between the UN's apparent ineffec- tiveness in the Arab-Israeli dispute and the failure of the League to act decisive- ly in the Italian-Ethiopian conflict of 40 years failure credited with precipitating the demise of the League. Meanwhile, published reports out of the Middle East that the Soviet Union is pressuring the PLO to adopt a less-violent stance, as a move toward greater acceptance as a recog- nized voice in peace- making efforts, are being interpreted in some quarters here as an at- tempt to dampen the fires of dissent. Raphal, in his reply to Scali, said the UN of 1945 "is not the organization of today" and that "the ideals on which it was built no longer mean anything." In this regard, the Washington Star-News commented editorially: "In the decline of UN credibility and influence, the main potential losers are the mostly small states that make up the assembly majority now stomping so enthusiastically on the rights and sensibilities of an outvoted minority." Hospital ban upheld BULLETIN THE UNFAIR TRADE PRACTICES ACT BILL78 The Honourable R. W. Dowling, Minister of Consumer Affairs, introduced Bill UnfairTrade Practices First Reading during the last week of the Fall Session of the Alberta Legislature. Mr. Dowling stated that it was his intention to solicit the views of all interested parties in respect of this Bill prior to its re-introduction in the Spring Session of the Legislature. The Bill is aimed at stopping deceptive and unfair practices that hurt both the unsuspecting consumer and the reputable businessman. While the proposed legislation provides fora Director of Trade Practices to handle consumer complaints and investigate potential unfairdealing, the courts are given the role of deciding on whether a practice should be stopped and ruling on matters of consumer redress. Copies of Bill 78 are being distributed and further copies may be obtained by telephoning (403) 229-3450 in Efdmonton. Accordingly, if you have any views to express in respect of Bill 78, you are invited to forward your written comments to: Honourable R. W. Dowling Minister of Consumer Affairs 228 Legislative Building Edmonton, Alberta T5K 2B6 prior to December 20, 1974 Consumer Affairs. Let's make it work together. HELENA, Mont. (CP) The Montana Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that a private hospital subject to the moral codes of the Roman Catholic Church cannot be forced to allow sterilization operations. In an unanimous decision, the court said the ban by Holy Rosary Hospital of Miles City on sterilization operations does not violate either state laws or the federal con- stitution. The ruling upheld a lower court decision against a married couple and a physician. The couple's 1972 suit had sought to force the hospital to allow the woman to be surgically sterilized.
