Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 31, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 - THB IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, Dacember 31, 1971 River pilots report QUEBEC (CP) - St. Lawrence river pilots began reporting for work Thursday night immediately following settlement of a dispute which sparked a week-long walkout, a union spokesman said. Gaston Rousseau of the Lower St. Lawrence River Pilots Corp. told a news conference agreement was reached after a daylong meeting in Ottawa of representatives of the independent union, shipowners and the federal transport department. Ni n e t y- o n e pilots stopped work Dec. 23 to protest what they called a dangerous deep draught caused by overloading on some tankers and the refusal of shipowners to pay both pilots assigned to a ship full wage rates. The men guide ships through strong current and a narrow channel between Quebec City and Les Escoumins, 110 miles downstream. The settlement headed off what could have mushroomed into a disruption of shipping across Canada by the Canadian Merchant Service Guild which represents 4,000 other marine pilots. Pentagon papers case enlarged Holidaymakers endangered by volcano SANTIAGO (Reuter) - A major relief and rescue operation was mounted today to save thousands of people, many of them stranded holidaymakers, endangered by the sudden eruption of a volcano in southern Chile. At least four persons died and 29 were listed as missing after Villarrica volcano poured molten lava out of two craters and onto a lakeland holiday area known as Little Switzerland Thursday. The volcano's cone was ringed in flames and smoke, and torrents of lava and melted snow swept over trees and animals. In some places the lava was 50 feet high. POSTPONED HALLAM, England (CP) - A Midlands League soccer game had to be postponed when the players and referee discovered that someone had stolen the goal posts just before the kick-off. LOS ANGELES (AP) -Daniel Ellsberg and Anthony J. Russo, a former colleague at the Rand Corp.. are named in a new, 15-count indictment in the Pentagon papers case that observers sav should make the government's prosecution easier. Onlv Ellsberg, who has admitted giving the papers to newspapers, was named in an earlier indictment returned hv a federal grand jury here. The action announced Thursday replaces it, enlarges the rase against Ellsberg and adds Russo. Vu Van Thai, a former South Vietnamese ambassador to the United States, and Lynda Sinay, head of a Los Angeles advertising agency and a friend of both Ellsberg and Russo, are named as unindicted co-conspirators. The indictment, returned secretly Wednesday, accused Ellsberg and Russo of conspiring with others to steal and make known once top-secret U.S. defence department paoers on the Vietnam war. The counts carry various penalties iro to a maximum of $10,000 fine and 10 years in prison. USE HEARSAY Observers said the conspiracy count is expected to make the government's case easier since it will allow U.S. attorneys to use hearsay statements of coconspirators and other evidence not otherwise admissable. Thai, 52, was ambassador to the United States from November. 1965, to December, 1966. The Pentagon papers leak broke last June when The New York Times began publishing instalments of the study on the origin of U.S. involvement in the Vietnam war. Ellsberg is free on $50,000 bail pending an appearance in U.S. district court here Jan. 4 for pretrial motions and a trial date on the original indictment. Russo was freed Thursday on a personal recognizance bond of $50,000 after telling the judge: "I am virtually penniless." Churches draw closer Eucharist accord possible LONDON (Reuter) - The Roman Catholic and Anglican churches announced a substantial agreement today on one of the issues of belief which have split them for 400 years. A permanent international commission of Catholics and Anglicans, set up two years ago to pave the way for unity, announced that substantial agreement had been reached on the crucial issue of the Eucharist.

An RCMP officer said police were treating the two calls as a hoax but that tightened security was normal procedure in such cases.

With the ceasefires applicable only in South Vietnam, U.S. B-52 bombers were diverted to targets in Laos at the entrances to the Ho Chi Minh trail. U.S. reconnaissance planes over North Vietnam tried to assess the damage done by American planes. The U.S. command, in a preliminary assessment, said that 11 air defence sites were de stroyed. The U.S. said three planes were lost, two to Soviet-built SAM-2S surface-to-air missiles. One of the four flyers was rescued and the other three are missing. North Vietnam said two of the pilots were captured. North Vietnam said it shot down a total of 19 American aircraft. *ecipitat!Of# COLD AND WET-All of the country can expect below normal temperature reading for January according to the 30-day weather outlook of the United States weather bureau. Precipitation will be light-to-moderate for British Columbia and the Prairies, with Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes receiving heavy. This is not a specific forecast and changes may occur. One good turn may deserve another munion, is the most central ritual of Christian worship, commemorating Christ's last supper before the crucifixion. Catholic official doctrine has insisted that the body and blood of Christ are present in the bread and wine consumed by worshippers during the service. The doctrine is called transub-stantiation. But since the 16th century, when the Church of England broke away from the Roman Catholic Church, Anglicans have r e j e c t ed transubstan-tiation. They maintain that the body and blood of Christ are present "only after a heavenly and spiritual manner." AGREED IN SEPTEMBER The international commission's agreement, reached at its last meeting at Windsor in September and published today, is based on two main points First, both sides see the Eucharist as a "memorial" of the Hfe, death and resurrection of Christ. The second is that "the sacramental body and blood of the savior are present as an offering tojhe believer awaiting his^pelcome The statement said: "The memorial is no mere calling to mind of-a^past event or of its significanceT^tV*"6 Church's effectual proclamation of God's mighty acts." V The commission\ statement has still to be ratified by the authorities of both ohurf" Both Catholic and ^UigJiCan theologians described tnfclagree-ment as the most important statement since the Reformation. The commission recognizes that many issues still remain to be settled before the world's 47 million Anglicans and 526 million Catholics can reach unity. But they consider that if there are any remaining points of disagreement they can be resolved on the principles here established." Sudanese rebels want help LONDON (CP) - Sudanese rebels feel the Canadian government owes them some political sympathy because they buried the dead Canadian pilot and took care of surviving passengers when a Fokker aircraft crashed in southern Sudan earlier this nionth. The pilot was identified by the Canadian high commission today as Edward George West-wood of Alberta who had a wife and three children living in Khartoum. An official said Westwood is believed to have a relative described only as L. Poxon living in Calgary. Westwood, employed by Sudanese Airways, was apparently flying the twin-engined Fokker from a town called Malakul to Juba in southern Sudan when ei- \"X" MARKS THE S/OT FOB^YOUR PARU^NEEDS WARDS RENTALS ther one engine failed or he lost his way.

A London-based spokesman for the Anya-Nya said the pilot, whose name was unknown at the time, was buried at the crash site. The others, including citizens of a number of Middle East countries as well as Sudan, were given assistance by the Anya-Nya. Some able to walk were transported to a place close to Juba where they could make their own way on foot. Others were given medical treatment and later assisted in their transport. Three days ago the survivors sent a message to the Anya-Nya's London office expressing thanks for the assistance they received. Meanwhile, the Anya-Nya spokesman said his colleagues have been trying to stimulate sympathy from the Canadian government and other administrations as well, using the rescue operation as ah example of Anya-Nya's good intentions. "We would like the Canadian government to help us in developing more international political support," the spokesman said. A Canada House spokesman said, however, that no formal appeal has been received and the only interest Canada has in the situation is the fact that the pilot was a Canadian. Anti-war protesters arrested By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Anti-war veterans occupied a United States Marine Corps re^ cruiting station in Boston and a National Guard general's office I in Hartford, � Conn., Thursday. Both takeovers were brief and ended with the protesters' arrests. Police arrested nine members of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War about 30 minutes after they barricaded themselves inside an office in the Boston recruiting centre. The veterans said the protest was a gesture of support for other veterans who occupied the Statue of Liberty in New York earlier this week and were removed by a court order. Other arii-war veterans held a similar demonstration at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington this week. The Hartford demonstration also was billed as a protest of the bombing of North Vietnam. It came seven hours after the U.S. command in Saigon had announced an end to heavy U.S. air strikes in the North. Anti-war veterans briefly took over the office of Maj.-Gen. E. Donald Walsh, commanding general of the Connecticut National Guard, but later filed out into a waiting state police bus. They were taken to state police headquarters to be charged with criminal trespass, and officers said they would be released without bail.
