Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta -WKimiday. Decembtr 22, 1971 THE LTTHBRIDGE HERALD 27 New Pak president seeks settlement Business Spotlight RAWALPINDI, Pakistan (AP) President Zulfikar AH Bhutto says he will release Sheik Mujibur Rahman, the East Pakistani political leader, from prison but will keep him under house arrest. Bhutto said the change from imprisonment to house arrest was a step in seeking a political settlement with Pakistan's lost eastern province which became the separate state of Bangla Desh as a result of the two- week war between India and Pakistan. India says Mujib's release and return to the East will be key requirements in any peace negotiations. The new president has pledged to regain the eastern wing of Uie country and under- lined his intentions earlier Tues- day by naming an East Paki- stani, Nurul Amin, as his vice- president. Bhutto told reporters at a re- ception he will go to Peking be- fore entering talks with India about a post-war settlement. China backed Pakistan in the war. He also said he would not con- j provincial affairs, vene the National Assembly Bhutio also a until a settlement with India is i would not draw reached. Bhutto also announced he will soon give up his title as chief martial law administrator.

And he's confident his car is A-l. Then a sudden turnabout: Bully-beef shelves are cleared off in a hurry and Uie car goes back to the dealer. Two more recalls have been ordered by manufacturers. Usually taken as a precaution- ary measure, a recall is a costly headache to the manufac- turer. Although recalls crop up less frequently among foodstuffs, they present a bigger problem than in the automobile industry. With toed, where contamination or side-effects may be serious or fatal, it's imperative to get those containers off every shelf across the country immediately. But Uie major part of the problem is how to get in touch with every wholesaler and re- tailer in the business. At present, the warning, mostly by telephone and the news media, doesn't reach everyone as soon as it should.

It's the place where for the last 99 years soap box ora- tors have been openly damning the government, predicting the end of the world, reciting poet- ry, promoting strange religions and weird economic theories, or just talking to exercise their egos. Londoners call the place Brit- ain's Soap Box Parliament. First World War ballads, draws as big a crowd as the anar- chists or Maoists. Shaggy-hair- ed Martin Besserman, who bills himself as "the intelligent de- linquent" and recites his poet- ry from atop three milk crates, is another popular fixture. Another is Van Dyn, an eld- erly South African who has fili- bustered for years about being a jailbird and a member of the Al Capone gang, which few lis- teners believe.

The tree-shader1 park space near the humming traffic around Marble Arch stands 100 yards from where Tyburn Gal- lows once cast its shadow. From to 1783, countless prisoners were hanged, dis- membered, beheaded or burned alive on Hie spot. The victims were usually allowed to say a lew final words to the avid spectators, and the anguished farewells started a tradition of unccnsorcd speech. The hecklers are sometimes the best part of the show. One Sunday a shouting Mao- ist speaker waved a big red flag and yelled: "Some day this will be flying over the White House."

Sheik Mujib was arrested March 25, and brought to West Pakistan where he recently stood trial for "crimes against Pakistan."

A spokesman for Swift said that in the case of Prem "it was one of our cwn men who blew the whistle on the product."

ISSUED WARNING It said it issued a warning saying that if anyone suspected ill effects from the product he should call his family doctor. Samples then should be submit- ted to the local medical officer of health who would send it to the feed and drug directorate for analysis. The spokesman said it Is still too early to determine how- much loss of profit resulted from the recall. Canada Packers Ltd. says it has not had a product recall since 1927 and has no special program in mind if the situation were to come up now. In the automobile industry, the recall procedure is compar- atively simple and isually re- sults from a series of com- plaints, net necessarily in mat- ters of car safety.
