Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta gov't said biased against wagon train Book on Chappaquiddick said to be best seller TORONTO (CP) Alberta government officials who say that persons joining the Cana- dian Wagon Train are heading only for disappointment and hardship are indicating a re- gional bias which goes against the intent of Alberta's Public Lands Act, a wagon train spokesman said Friday. Gary Horan, spokesman for a group of Toronto-area residents who plan to drive 15 horsedrawn wagons miles from Kleinourg, Ont., to northern Alberta and a new life, said the act, filed Feb. 21, 1973, states tliat any Canadian citizen 18 years and older may apply for "lease of land with or without an option to purchase on public land." Alberta Premier Peter Lougheed was chairman of the committee which devised the act, he said. Allan Warrack, Alberta's lands minister, said Thursday Charges fly in Quebec assembly QUEBEC (CP) A motion of procedure to impeach three cabinet ministers and Speaker Jean-Noel Lavoie will be in- troduced in the national assembly today, Robert Burns, house leader for the Parti Quebecois, said Friday. Mr. Burns Maisonneuve) made the an- nouncement after an amend- ment he proposed to a motion to impeach Jacques-Yvan Mo- rin, the leader of the Opposi- tion, was declared out of order Earlier this week, Mr. Monn was accused of illegally cashing a cheque used to defray expenses for a September trip to Brussels where he was the official delegate of the Parti Quebecois Immigration Minister Jean Bienvenue, who made the charge, said Mr Monn had violated the Legislature Act by cashing the cheque The accusation was made in virtue of Section 96 of the act which states. "Such allowance shall not be granted to members who are members of the Executive Council or the member oc- cupying the recognized posi- tion of Leader of the Oppo- sition." Mr. Monn said at the time he went to Brussels to attend a French-language parlia- mentarians conference at the request of Mr. Lavoie. Alberta is not encouraging homesteading because "only a limited amount of public land is available and priority will be given to estabished district farmers Public lands "are not free" and are sold at prices at least equal to the market value of surrounding private land, he added Mr Horan said Mr. War- rack's comments are based on the notion wagon train mem- bers plan on homesteading He said three original mem- bers of the wagon train have applied for grazing leases of acres each. "We're not he said. "We want to lease land to raise cattle There seems to be a problem with terminology here." The Alberta government has received about letters and phone calls concerning land since the modern-day trek was an- nounced. "We are not offering land on behalf of the government of Mr Horan emphasized "We have instructed interested parties to contact the department of lands and forests in Ed- monton regarding land leases LOS ANGELES (Reuter) After 15 years of publishing mainly rightist political tracts, the ultra-conservative John Birch Society has a best seller on its hands despite what the society calls a boycott of the book by leading book reviewers. The book is Teddy Bare, a recounting of the incident on the island of Chappaquid- dick in Massachusetts in July, 1969, in which secretary Mary Jo Kopechne drowned in a car driven by Senator Edward Kennedy (Dem Mass It is interwoven with Birch Society beliefs about the U S. being threatened by a worldwide Communist plot. The society's publishing wing, Western Islands, says the book has sold copies since it was put on the market in 1971, most of them since last March when public demand began to grow for the book. Jay Allen, a leading Los Angeles book publicist, said Friday: "Sales like that certainly qualify the book to be a best seller." Teddy Bare is written by Zad Rust, a pen-name and anagram for author Michael Sturdza, a former Romanian foreign minister who lives in Spain. Sturdza did not come to the U.S. to research the book but wrote it from material available in Europe.
