Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Wsdnesioy. febrasry PRIZE COW This five-year-old purebred Charolais cow belonging to Wayne Malmberg of Coaldale, was the top money getter at the annual Canadian Charolais Association's sale and convention held recently in Winmpeg. The cow sold for and was bought by Thormont Ranches of Blackie, Alberta. It was ens ct 19 ani- mals picked especially for the sale which was held in the ballroom of one ot Winni- peg's posh hotels. The average sale price of the animals was Broken rail was cause of pile-up A broken rail has been es- tablished as the cause of a 57- car train derailment Friday near West Glacier, Montana. A spokesman for the rail company, Burlington-Northern, said an earlier report that me- chanical failure may have been involved was incorrect. The t r a i n, a 75-car freight, derailed shortly before noon Friday at tunnel 37, five miles east of West Glacier. No in- juries were reported, although the line was blocked until Sun- day night. Clean-up operations are ex- pected to take another week. Three cars had blocked the tunnel, while others piled up at the west portal of the tunnel. Seven miles of track were washed out by floods in the same area in 1964. Three bow out during year Machinery dealers feel pinch Three Lethbridge farm ma- chinery dealers went out of bus- iness during 1970, and at least two more are in what could be described as dire financial straits. Local farm implement deal- ers say the shut down of the businesses was an aftermath of the federal governments "oper- ation a program to re- duce grain production. One dealer said farmers are just not buying, and it is not because they don't have the money. "In past years we have on the average, had orders for about 25 seeders by this time of the year. This year we have orders for he said. "Farmers are just being more cautious about how they spend their money." Another dealer said fanners are repairing instead of replac- ing. One sales agent said banks may have something to do with the current situation, by being, "too sticky in their lend- ing policies." At any rate, Alberta is not the only province being affected by the plight of the farm com- munity. At the annual meeting of the Saskatchewan Farm Imple- ment Dealers held recently in Regina, it was reported about 65 dealers went out of business in that province over the past two years. The report says only about 15 of these were bona fide dealers, while the rest were sub-margi- nal agents not belonging to the 400-member Saskatchewan as- sociation. The outlook for the future is more optimistic though, as the general farm picture is consid- erably brighter. "Things can only get better, said one dealer, and anyone who made it through the last two years should be able to withstand anything." MAJOR was estimated at when this vehicle, driven by Jerome Allen Gorda, 3ISA 12th St. S., hit a telephone pole at 5th Ave. and Stafford Drive about 11 p.m. Tuesday and overturned. Injured were Gorda, Kendall George Strong, 919 7th St. S., and John Thomas, 742 10th St. N. Thomas is in fairly good condition in St General Hospital where he is under observation for a concussion injury. The vehicle is termed a write-off. In another accident about 5 p.m. Tuesday damage totalled when vehicles operated by Alfredo Louise Lynn, 2002 6th Ave. S., and Betty Olga Mahon, 509 14th St. S., collided in the intersection of loth Ave. and 20th St. S. The Mahon car rolled, and the woman was taken ID St. Michael's, treated for bruises and shock, and released. FLQ communist machine GM's newest and lowest-priced little car. director of CLR TheRrenzastory.. Thetoatestory... Ey JOAN BOWMAN Herald {Staff Writer The Front de Liberation du uebec was not founded as the e s u 1 1 of poverty and unem-loyment in Quebec, but was esigned as a communist ma-line to overthrow the Cana-ian government, according to le research director of the Ca-adian League rights. Pat Walsh, 54-year-old for-ner union organizer in Que-ec, told dose to 200 night at the Civic Sports Centre, that leading folders are Maoists, born or rained in foreign countries, and of middle- and upper-class ackgrounds. Mr. Walsh, national secre-ary of the Canadian Friends of Rhodesia, visited Lethbridge as part of a six-week speaking tour of the four western provinces. Aligned with the right-wing publication, Canadian Intelligence Service, he concludes Ms Alberta tour today in Medicine Hat. The terrorist FLQ, held responsible for the kidnapping last October of British Trade Commissioner James Cross and the kidnapping murder of Quebec Labor Minister Pierre Laporte, was viewed by Mr. Walsh as part of a vast conspiracy of communism. The conspiracy takes in the Company of Young Canadians, CBC's French radio network, the University of Montreal and universities in general and the Black Panthers in the U.S. Mr. Walsh said "leading people in the leading newspapers" are part of the network and were responsible for the media's "playing down" of the FLQ situation until Mr. La-porte's death. After his murder, the CEC "found reasons to excuse the murderers." He said after the Roman Catholic Church loosened its hold on education in Quebec, "international professors swarmed in and contaminated the minds of students." FLQers during the early 1960s were trained in the Russian line in Algeria and Cuba he said. This was the "roman tic period" when students iden tified with Cuban leader Che Guevara. After Guevara was killed in the wilds of Bolivia in 1967 the FLQ became Maoist and switched from rural to urban warfare. The organization is part of a "Maoist global subversive controlled, masterminded and financed from Peking." Mr. Walsh said former prime minister Lester Pearson was warned in 1963 of the FLQ but he did not consider it as "conspiratorial as it turned out to be." Hence he did order the RCMP not to investigate subversive activity on university campuses. Mr. Walsh said both Liberal and Progressive Conservative governments failed to heed a report of the late 1940s which showed top civil servants were guilty of espionage. Prime Minister Trudeau "likes power" and "exploited" the FLQ situation. He sent troops into Quebec when he was "stabbed in the back" by Le Devoir editor, Claude Ryan, who was part of a conspiracj to replace the shaky elected Quebec government with a non-elected "provisional government." Mr. T r u d e a u's popularity "zoomed up" after his order to send in troops. The people of Quebec "welcomed the army and recoiled with horror at what had happened." Mr. Laporte was picked out for "execution" by the FLQ because he had once been friends with its leading members, hat switched from separatism to federalism, and "kept tabs" on the revolutionaries. Mr. Walsh said the murderers did not suddenly get the idea to murder Mr. Laporte after they heard of Mr. Cross' kidnapping on a radio station in Texas. It was part cf a "long-term sophisticated plot." School drama meet Thursday A junior high school drama rganizational meeting will be leld at p.m. Thursday in le Bowman Arts Centre.
