Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, February 7, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Hope to form next government Quebec Socreds gaming strength By ROB BULL Herald Ottawa Bureau QUEBEC CITY - The raillie-ment des Creditistes of Quebec, unlike its sister organizations in British Columbia and Alberta, has never formed a Social Ci-edit provincial government. But with Yvon Dupuis, they think they may form the next. The rally is only about three years old but it seems to be gaining ground among those Quebecers upset with what they see as increasing socialism, powerful unions and separatism. Federal and provincial Credit-iste strength has always been mainly in the rural areas of Quebec. But in the 1972 federal elec-ton, while they gained no seats in Montreal, they did win nearly 150,000 votes in the metropolitan area. Lawmen seek common link to wave sex slayings By CRAIG AMMERMAN BOSTON (AP) - Sandra Eh-ramjian decided to take a few days off from her job as a c-ib-bie last Nov. 27 so sbe could visit her family In East Meadows, N.Y. She left her Cambridge apartment and headed south. She was hitch-hiking. Two days later and only a mile away, Damaris Synge Gil-lispie was running late. She only had a few minutes to get to her part-time job in Boston. She looked for quick ride to the nearest subway station. She, too, was hitch-hiking. Neither Miss Ehramjian, 21, nor Miss Gillispie, 22, was ever seen alive again. They were two of eight young Boston-area women who have been slain since last summer. As scores of lawmen and prosecutors gather in Boston today to attempt to find a common link in this area's most recent wave of killings, a district attorney says he has sufficient evidence to prosecute for the slaying of Miss Gillispie. But law officials say they do not yet have conclusive evidence to tie one man to the eight murders, all of them committed against young, white women and all by strangulation or suffocation, recalling the case of the Boston Strangler, in which 13 women died alone in their apartments by strangulation in I960. Those murders remain unsolved. Albert DeSalvo, who claimed to be the Strangler, is serving a life sentence in Massachusetts for unrelated assaults - on four women. He was never charged in any of the Boston Strangler deaths. As Boston-area law officials work on this most recent series of killings, their counterparts on the suburban North Shore are investigating a wave of rapes. Two attempted rapes last weekend in that area brought the number of such attacks and attempted attacks to 13 since November. In nearly every case, police say the attacker approaches his victim wearing a ski mask and takes her to a deserted area where he is joined by another man. VICTIMS WERE YOUNG But the focus of police is on the murders of the young women. All were between 18 and 29. Most were sexually attacked. Four were college students. At least four we�e last seen hitch-hiking. A fifth may have met her death when she picked up a hitch-hiker. John J. Droney, the district attorney for Middlesex County, says he will present to a grand jury "within dsys" sufficient evidence to indict a man for Miss Gillispie's murder. That man, authorities say, is behind bars, charged in an unrelated crime. They claim to have evidence from the man's apartment, and 'from a car he once owned. Police in Cambridge, meanwhile, say they have evidence linking the deaths of Miss Gillispie, Miss Ehramjian and that of Ruth A. Hamilton, 22, a school teacher whose body was found in her Cambridge apartment Dec. 24. Miss Ehramjian's body was discovered in a park at Brockton, 25 miles southwest of Boston, Nov. 28. Police believe that Miss Hamilton was abducted while driving her car. She was taken to the apartment, they say, and forced to write a $595 cheque. Then she was killed. A key to the case, according to police, is a blood-stained gold Cadillac found last month at a salvage company in Brockton. The rear seat and trunk of the car-which was just about to be crumpled into bite when police found it-are covered with blood. Police are now trying to determine whether the car might have been the death sits for several of the victims. The provincial party was seriously disorganized, however, and delegates to the convention had the task, not only of rtying to put the pieces back together again, but of finding a leader who could present the movement in an acceptable way to urban and rural voters. There .were two main contenders. One was Camil Samson, 38, the group's former leader, who split with the party a year ago, formed his own splinter group, and rejoined on the understanding that last weekend's convention would be one in which anyone who joined the party by Jan. 26 could vote. The other was Yvon Dupuis, a former Liberal who gained a cabinet post on the strength of a successful and theatrical campaign against Social Credit. He resigned from the Pearson government because of charges of influence peddling but was later cleared. In the next few years, he became the host of what turned out to be a highly-popular talk show in Montreal. He also founded a newspaper called the "Defi"-the challenge-which he billed as the only newspaper without newsmen. It was based on letters to the editor. He built up a strong personal following in the Montreal area. And as he said in his speech to the convention Saturday night, he became converted. "From 1963 to 1965, I fought Social Credit openly, face to face. I tried to convince them to become Liberals but they wouldn't give up. They succeeded in turning me into a creditiste." By 1970, Real Caouette had decided that Mr. Dupuis should be the leader of the new provincial organization. But that convention, upset because Mr. Caouette himself did not want to run, elected Mr. Samson. PHARMACY VALENTINES DAYT MR. BUBBLE POWDER 28 oz.
