Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THI LETHBRIDCE HERALD Tueiday, DecemUr 38, 1971 FLAG FLOWN IN PROTEST-Antlwar veterans barricaded inside the Statue of Liberty in New York fly an American Flag in the upside down position from the crown of the statue. This manner of displaying a flag is the international symbol of distress. PO tliief sought at Canlslon CATtDSTOX (HNS) Cards- ton town police are seeking clues concerning the pilfering of 80 lock boxes ill the Cards- ton post office last week. Someone entered the lobby and chested the locks prior to 1 a.m. last Thursday morning. At that time it was not known whst had been takea from the boxes. Protesters saluted at Vancouver A X C 0 V E R (CP) A dozen Canadian protesters sa- luted 16 American protesters Monday night, in the form ot a telegram of encouragement. The 12-man crew of the origi- nal Grronpeacc protest mission, which ;iiti'mptrd unsuccessfully to prevent the LT.S. nuclear test on Amchitka island last month, sent tile telegram to the 16 a n t i -w a r demonstrators who have occupied the Statue of Lib- erty in New York. "We salute you in your fine gesture against the war in Viet- the telegram said. ''When we sailed for Am- chitka in October we encoun- tered many young men like yourselves in the new freestyle protest movement against the war. both service personnel and civilians, and especially the crew of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Confidence. They risked punishment for their breach of coast guard discipline and offi- cial U.S. war policy in giving their unqualified support to the Canadian protest. "We salute you and we are with you all the way." NEW YORK (Reuter) Sis- teen Vietnam war veterans who blockaded themselves in the Statue of Liberty Sunday as z protest against the Vietnam war peacefully walked out of the monument today in the face of a federal court order. The veterans, who held the statue for about 36 hows, left after officials of the National Parks Service, which maintains the monument located on an is- land in New York harbor, presented them with a civil j order from Judge Lawrence Pierce entering them to remove their barricades and leave. It was not known if any action would be taken against the men. The men are protesting against the Indochina war. A lawyer for the parks serv- ice argued in civil court that the j continued occupation of the monument kept the public from visiting it, while a lawyer for the veterans argued that they i were hivolved in a legitimate i demonstration on public prop-' erty. The group rejected Monday night a government compromise offer that would have reopened the monument to sightseers while allowing the veterans to remain on Liberty Island and continue their protest. Flying an American flag up- side down as a symbol of dis- tress, the veterans reiterated their position that they would not leave until their demand j that the protest be publicized to U.S. troops was met. j Similar anti-war protests were carried out Monday at the Betsy Ross house in Philadel- phia and at a ward in a hospital at Travis Air Force Base near San Francisco. All three protests were organ- ized or aided by the Vietnam Veterans Against" the War in an effort to create pressure on President NLxon to set a definite date for withdrawal of Ameri- can forces from Southeast Asia. Members of the WAW have been emcamped at Valley Forge, Pa., since last week. Spokesmen claimed that the York and Philadelphia pro- tests were launched from there. Twenty-three men and two women occupied Uie tiny Phila- delphia home where Betsy ROES fashioned the first American flag. They left peacefully when police broke in 45 minutes later. At Travis, 18 army men just back from Vietnam took over the floor of an observation ward for ]fl hours to protest their en- forced treatment for what the military said was opium use. In New York, the 12-acre Lib- erty Island was closed to sightseeing boats which connect it with the tip of lower Manhat- tan. About persons a day normally visit the landmark at this time of year. The National Park Service has jurisdiction over the island. In seeking a federal court eviction order, the park service noted that hundreds of Christ- mas week sighlseers were being blocked from visiting the statue. AGE MELLOWS LONDON (AP) Headmas- ters over age 50 are more broadininded and democratic in running their schools than younger educationists, a survey at the University of Bradford indicated.

Sugar plants run TABER (HNS) Alberta's 1971 bed sugar production campaign officially ended at 8 p.m. Monday when the last of Ions of beels were pro- Prophet's prediction accurate TORONTO fCP) Elias Mallett, who plays the role of prophet now and then, says he wasn't surprised when he heard Prime Minister Tru- deau became the father of a boy Christmas Day. He says he saw all that in his occult way last March. Mr. Mallett also claims to have predicted, as long ago as N o v c m b e r, 1969, that the prune mini-ster would marry in a "iop .secret" ceremony. Mr. Trudeau did just that last March. And he claims to have fore- cast the rising of the Cana- dian dollar and the assassina- tion of United States Senator Robert Kennedy." As for the new Tmdeau, who the seor says should be called Joseph: "I predict he could be a fu- ture prime minister." Mr. Maliett's prediction on the name specified Joseph but said it would be a name at least starting with J. Mr. Trudeau said outside the hospital Monday tiie child will be called Justin Pierre. Mr. Mallett lias also pre- dicted that Mr. Trudeau will have a long marriage and at least two more children and that he may step down before the next election, which Mr. Mallett says will be a cloce one. Soviet Union revalues its ruble MOSCOW CAP) The Soviet Union realigned its non-convert- ible ruble with 22 foreign cur- rencies today, lowering the value of all of them except the Japanese yen. In terms of rubles, the United States dollar fell by eight per cent, the pound sterling by nearly two per cent and the French franc by less than one per cent. The changes were published by the government newspaper Izvestia, which printed a state bank announcement making the new parities effective today. The changes resembled the broad currency realignment de- cided at last weekend's Wash- ington meeting of the Group of Ten, the 10 richest non-Com- munist countries. Because of the change, the U.S. dollar now buys 82.9 ko- pecks Instead1 of 90. The Canadian dollar, which has been floating near par with the U.S. dollar, was not re- aligned. The official rate has been 88.78 rubles for 100 Cana- dian dollars. The realignment means that foreigners with dollar bank ac- counts or incomes Jiving in Mos- cow will pay eight per cent more to live. The official value of the ruble is completely artificial. Rubles cannot be legally exported or imported.

A total of 28 died in Ontario, all in traffic. In Quebec, 23 persons died ac- cidentally, 19 Mi traffic, three in snowmobile mishaps and the one who froze.

Saskatchewan had two traffic victims and a fire death. In Alberta, two died in traffic and one in a shooting accident. British Columbia's two fatali- ties were in traffic. In Nova Scotia, one person died in traffic and another by asphyxiation. The only New Brunswick fa- tality was a snowmobile mis- hap. Prince Edward Island was fa- tality-free.

The survey does not include industrial deaths, slayings or known suicides. Bertraml condition stiil serious MONTREAL (CP) The con- dition of Jean-Jacques Ber- trand, former Union Nationale premier, was still serious Mon- day night, his doctor said. Dr. Paul David, director-gen- eral of the Montreal Heart Insti- tute, said in an interview Mr. Bertrand's condition was not stationary and the former pre- mier was still very sick. The 55-year-old United-Quebec member for Mississiquoi in the Quebec national assembly en- tered the institute Dec. 14 after what Dr. David termed "a very serious and complicated heart attack." "I can't say what his condi- tion will be tomorrow or the day Dr. David said earlier. "He requires constant care and observation." It is a question of weeks rather than days before Mr. Bert rand will be able to leave the institute, he said. Complications after the heart attack caused some fears but Mr. Bertrand at no time lost consciousness or reached a crit- ical stage. Only members of the family and exceptionally close friends have been allowed to visit Mr. Bertrand since he entered the institute. It was Mr. Bertrand's second heart attack in three years. The first was in September, 1968, just atcr he took over as acting premier following the death of- Daniel Johnson. Since then he has undergone several examinations for heart pains, including one Dec. 9 at Laval Hospital in Quebec City.
