Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Plumbers find explosive African Parking violation in university toilet HAMILTON (CP) Dis- covery of an explosive device in the toilet of a McMaster University science building was disclosed by Hamilton- .Wentworth regional police during the weekend. Police said a length of iron pipe filled with a black sub- stance believed to be gun- powder, and fitted with a deto- Taipei lists dead agents TAIPEI (CP) News- papers here published today the names of 10 government agents killed while engaging in sabotage and intelligence activities in China. A release from intelligence authorities said that over the past two decades, hundreds of government agents have died while "carrying out their duties behind enemy lines." It said their activities in- cluded distributing propaganda leaflets, sabotage against maritime traffic facilities, gathering informa- tion and establishing mobile and secret radio stations.

They said they do not believe the incident was connected with a series of fires that broke out in Wentworth House on the cam- pus early Sunday just after the closing of a tavern in the building. A police spokesman said the bomb, which had been partial- ly dismantled by the plumbers before police were called, would have gone off with the force of a hand grenade if it had exploded. The first fire in Wentworth House was found in a paper towel disposal unit and had been put out by students by the time police arrived. Later, a lounge suffered about damage in another blaze. Firemen found the lounge door barricaded by a couch. The third fire was dis- covered shortly afterward in a washroom of the building's se- cond same floor as the the contents of another towel dis- penser had been set alight in a wash basin. It was quickly put out. The police spokesman said the motives of the bomb- planter were a mystery. "It couldn't have disrupted the university he said. "If it had gone off, they just would have had to replace a couple of toilets."

NEW YORK (AP) Twen- ty-four year-old Maria Pellot, who started out angry about a double-parked car that was blocking her own, ended up dying on a Brooklyn street early Sunday. She became caught in the crossfire of a Shootout between two policemen. Police said it apparently was all a misunderstanding. Miss Pellot came out of a house in the east New York section of Brooklyn shortly after midnight Saturday night to find her parked car blocked by a double-parker. When James Gibson, a Housing Authority policeman, came out of a nearby apart- ment house, he found Miss Pellot banging on his double- parked car with an 18-inch pipe. Gibson was trying to take the pipe away from the girl, police said, when an uniden- tified man intervened and punched Gibson. The officer drew his gun and badge and told Miss Pellot and her defender they were under arrest. At this point, a bus passed. From its window, Robert Johnson, a correction depart- ment officer, saw the man holding the gun on the pair and thought it was a holdup. He jumped off the bus, shouting "I'm a cop. Drop your gun." Police said someone fired a shot, and both officers dived behind cars and began shooting across the street. Nine shots were exchanged before another off-duty officer came out of his nearby apart- ment and persuaded Gibson and Johnson to give up their guns. Then Miss Pellott was found lying on the pavement with a bullet wound in her stomach. She died after surgery at hospital. Police were still looking for the unidentified man who intervened.

(AP) Earl Schoonmacher, suspend- ed from his teaching job at a predominantly-black state prison for alleged Ku Klux Klan activity, says he was proud to be a Klansman and will fight for his job. A state correctional official said written departmental charges were to be filed against Schoonmacher, 39, who identified himself as Grand Dragon of New York state, Independent Northern Klan, Inc. "People don't have the right idea of what the Klan really Schoonmacher said in a telephone interview Sunday evening from his home. "We sell our pride I'm proud of being white, proud of being Christian We don't have time to hate de- stroys." Schoonmacher is accused of bringing Klan material into the prison and "contracting with an inmate to paint two pictures depicting a hooded Klansman on a horse." Schoonmacher was suspend- ed Friday from the Eastern New York correctional facili- ty at Napanoch. It was the first such action since a special state probe into alleg- ed Klan activity in New York state's prison system began more than a year ago. Greeks give president power enjoyed by king ATHENS (Reuter) The Greek cabinet approved today a draft constitution giving the president some of the powers and prerogatives formerly en- joyed by Greek kings, an au- thoritative source said. It now goes to a committee for study and debate The constitution which makes the president a central figure in the country's political life, was proposed by Premier Constantine Karamanlis The constitution, which re- places the existing 1952 charter, follows the abolition of the monarchy in a referen- dum on Dec.8. It vests the new president with the power to appoint and dismiss the prime minister and the cabinet prerogative once enjoyed by the king. Future presidents will be elected by a two-thirds ma- jority of the 300-seat parliament, according to the draft If parliament fails in three consecutive votes to elect a president, it will be dissolved and general elections will be held for a new parliament to choose the chief of staff, the source said. The president, at the suggestion of the cabinet, will have the right to hold referen- dums on major national issues. This is an innovation in the constitution An all-party parliamentary committee of 48 deputies will discuss the draft for three months starting in January. Moncton accused remanded MONCTON, N.B.
