Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta U.S. violates chemical war regulations Wednesday, December 30, 1970 1HC IETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 CHICAGO (AP) The United Slaes has engaged in activities in Vietnam for which Germany and Japan wore prosecuted after the Second World War, a legal authority said1 Tuesday. Responding to a report by a group of scientists on the eco- Court favors equal rights for children ROME (AP) Italy's Su- preme Court declared today that a law limiting the amount an illegitimate child can inherit is unconstitutional. The decision is a landmark in the fight to give all children equal rights. Because divorce has not been legal in Italy until this month, thousands of illegiti- mate children are born each year to couples who have not been able to marry. The court's ruling invalidated a law which said an illegitimate child could inherit only one half of the amount bequeathed to the least favored of a parent's legit- imate children and no more than one-third of the total es- tate. The court ruled that this violated the post-war constitu- tion's guarantee of the equality of all citizens before the law. logical aspects of herbicides, George Burni, professor of law at the University of Wisconsin, suggested that military forces have violated guidelines set down in the U.S. Army field manual based on international agreements. Bunn cited protocols which ban the destruction of food sources, particularly. Bunn is a former general counsel to the U.S. Arms Con- trol Agency and former alter- nate U.S. representative to the Geneva disarmament .confer- ence. iTcir CTnn The White House said last week that the use of herbicides is being phased out in Vietnam. North Vietnam said Tuesday in a broadcast from Hanoi that defoliants dumped by U.S. air- craft in South Vietnam have caused millions of persons to suffer the same fate as victims of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic blasts in the Second World War. "Clinically, there have been many miscarriages, congenital anomalies and frequent mon- strosities" as a result of spray- ing toxic chemicals, the broad- cast claimed. A herbicide assessment com- mission, headed by Dr. Matthew S. Meselson, professor of biol- ogy at Harvard University, presented Tuesday the first re- port of a survey of herbicidal damage resulting from spraying of forests and croplands by U.S. forces in South Vietnam. The report was given at a ses- sion of the American Associa- C7 lion for the Advancement of Sci- ence meeting. U.S. military forces have sprayed croplands in South Viet- nam with the aim of destroying Viet Cong-North Vietnamese food supplies, but members of Tuxis, older boys want group exclusively male EDMONTON (CP) Most of the boys attending the Tiixis and older boys parliament want to keep the organization exclu- sively male. The boys said here they don't want female members because girls would distract from the fellowship and destroy the heri- tage the parliament has held for 15 years. "If girls want a parliament, then let them have their own." George Bennett of Edrnont o n, leader of the opposition, said in an interview. Bob Hawkesworth of Edmon- ton said girls would not get any- thing out of the parliament. "They wouldn't feel the same fellowship as the boys." Rod Woren of Edmonton thinks girls should be included in Tuxis. "Women think the same as men. Why shouldn't l.l.hey be The Quebec youth parliament is tlie only one in Canada that has female members.

Nixon on TV next Monday WASHINGTON (Reuters) President Nbcon will give an hour-long live television inter- view on foreign and domestic problems Monday night, the White House anounced Tues- day. The White House press secre- tary, Honald L. Ziegler, said questions will be submitted by representatives of the major networks and the National Edu- cational Television system. The program will start at 7 p.m. MST. Ziegler said it will he "a gen- eral conversation in perspective and depth of major issues be- fore the country and the office of the presidency." Nixon has been under mount- ing criticism from (he press for UK infrequency with which he holds news conferences. Both the White House and the press have also acknowledged the shortcomings of presidential news conferences, where up to 300 reporters clammer for rec- ognition and there is little or no opportunity lo ask follow-up questions. JESUIT FINED MAASTRICHT (Renter) Rev. E. Krekelberg, a Jesuit priest, was fined about Mon- day for throwing a stone through the window of a "sex boutique" in this Dutch city last summer. He told a local court he was acting on an impulse and wanted the government to confiscate the articles on sale. (he commission said civilian food supplies probably have suf- fered more than those of the The commission d e t a i le d damage to mangrove forests and to South Vietnam's market- able Limber stands which it said take decades io recover. The loss of timber alone was es- timated at million. The commission is also study? ing the possible contamination of, food, and birth defects result- ing from the chemical sprays. The commission's report says square kilometres of land have been sprayed, entailing the feed some persons for one year. Bunn said the destruction of civilian crops violates the spirit if not the letter of three interna- tional agreements. Bunn said the armed forces issued information to guide their personnel on international rules of warfare, to achieve ob- servance of these rules and to avoid prosecution of U.S. per- sonnel for rule violations should they be captured by the enemy. "We sometimes forget that WE helped try German and Japa- nese military officers for viola- tions of these rules after World War he added.
