Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Wadnwday, Ftbruary Drug detail danger 'increases' OTTAWA (CP) RCMP officials say drug law enforcement is becoming increasingly dangerous. They say violence is mount- ing, making the job of the nar- cotics officer more risky all the time. Part of the reason is the high profits that are attracting people who previously specialized in other forms of crime Officials made these points Monday in the wake of a minor controversy here last week after a civilian was wounded during a narcotic investigation. Two criminal lawyers said in interviews then that it is only a matter of time before Macdonald leaving on Middle East tour Housekeeping ballet Skylab crewmen pass trash bags through airlock of the orbital workshop of the Skylab space station in Earth orbit.

Phone 327-3024 OTTAWA (CP) Energy Minister Donald Macdonald was scheduled to leave Tuesday night for a five-day holiday in Cyprus before starting an eight-day tour of Middle East oil-producing countries. He will fly to London after the world energy conference in Washington and will arrive in Cyprus Wednesday, said a spokesman in his office. He will be joined there Feb. 18 by a Canadian delegation that is to accompany him on the Mideast trip. Included will be Marshall Crowe, National Energy Board chairman; John Foster, vice-president of Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., and senior officials of the trade and external affairs departments. The group will fly Feb. 20 to Beirut, Lebanon, the base of the Canadian ambassador now serving Saudi Arabia. After a day of briefings, the group will leave for the Saudi capital of Riyadh and hold two days of talks with Saudi government officials. Feb. 22 they go to Iran for three days of meetings and likely will visit a third Mideast country after that, the spokesman said. Mr. Macdonald is scheduled to return to Ottawa Feb. 28, two days after Parliament reconvenes. Trudeau back on the job OTTAWA (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau attended a series of 'cabinet committee meetings Tuesday after returning from vacation Monday night. Apart from short visits to other Canadian cities during the next two weeks, the prime minister will remain close to Ottawa until Parliament resumes Feb 26.

Mr. Trudeau left Ottawa Jan. 27 to ski in Switzerland and to attend a meeting of the Club of Rome in Salzburg, Austria. someone is killed in a drug raid. They and others commented following the shooting of Russ Kennedy, 21, when he was fleeing from three out-of- unifortn RCMP drug officers: Kennedy said he fled from the officers Feb. 1 when one pulled a gun and pointed it at his head. He said he took off in his fa- ther's car. The RCMP officers and two Ottawa policemen fired at the car and Kennedy was slightly hurt. The man said later the police did not identify themselves. Police said they did show identification. Although refusing to speak for publication, some RCMP officers are reported angry about the controversy. One said recently that more and more narcotics officer; are dealing with armed traffickers or those who are protected by an armed bodyguard. While, refusing to directly comment on the Kennedy case, he said officers are meeting armed men or discovering weapons with alarming fre- from baseball bats and bicycle chains to loaded shotguns, handguns and rifles. Confrontation growing between Indian groups EDMONTON (CP) A confrontation is developing between the Indian Association of Alberta and the Treaty Voice of Alberta Association, an organization which represents 900 treaty Indian women in the province. Helen Gladue, Treaty Voice president, said in an interview Monday that the Indian Association is trying to force her group to review its constitution to stipulate that it is strictly a women's organization. Mrs. Gladue said her Birthday uniform Ben, known internationally on Ham radio airwaves as 'Benny the Nudist', observed his 73rd birthday Monday at Ithica, N.Y., with a snowmobile ride in his birthday suit. Although.it was only 18 degrees, Ben said he found that driving at 40 m.p.h. was the best way to celebrate the day. organization has been acknowledged a women's group since it was formed 13 months ago but because its constitution does not restrict membership to women many treaty men have also joined Because of the malle participation, she said, the Indian Association executive apparently is afraid that a counter political group will form to challenge its position as spokesman for Alberta's treaty Indians. Mrs. Gladue said treaty voice is primarily concerned with distribution of information about Indian Association and Indian affairs department policies and has no intention of infringing on Indian Association jurisdic- tion. She said the Indian Association executive recently instructed the province's 42 Indian reserve chiefs not to support her group until it complies with Indian Association demands. Treaty Voice was originally formed to represent the views of Alberta treaty women and to support the Indian Association in its fight to keep Indian women who marry non Indians from retaining their treaty rights Mrs. Gladue said the women's group does .not receive regular federal financing and does not have a paid executive. It consults with chiefs on important matters, is interested in preserving Indian culture and recognizes the power of Indian men as chiefs who need to have total power restored to them.

(AP) Hawthorne is de- termined to find out why someone left the mutilated bodies of seven cats stacked neatly into the shape of a pyramid on nearby East River Mountain. High rise fire risk reported TORONTO (CP) Risks of fire "of tragic scale" exist in several Canadian cities with high-rise buildings, the insur- ance brokerage firm of Marsh and McLennan says. "Present approaches toward fire safety are inadequate for high-rise buildings the Toronto- based firm says in a report circulated to the press. The report says the major threats of high-rise disasters exist in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. It concludes that all high- rise buildings, both apartments and offices, should be required by law to provide automatic sprinkler systems on all floors. Mrs Hawthorne, president of the Mercer County Humane Society, said the mystery be- gan last Wednesday when a man led her to a mountain thicket to see "some cats." "I expected to see a litter of kittens, and here were all these dead cats. They were neatly piled up in a pyramid so that their bodies came to a point. "They had been dead for a few days, and when I bent down to examine them, I was horrified to see that none of them had tongues. They had been removed, either ripped out or cut off." Mrs Hawthorne said a society member with an Inter- est in the occult "found a similarity with the wayf'ihe ancient Druids observed the Eve of Candlemas every Feb 2." "They believed that Feb. 2 was the most unlucky day of the year, and their ceremony included the torture and sac- rificing of cats." She said a man telephoned her Friday and said: "You'd better butt out because it's a religion with us." "That really scared Mrs. Hawthorne said.
