Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 23 THE LtinoHiuuc ncnMLU i-noay, rvuidiiy A M Donations to charity hardly new for Hearsts NEW YORK (AP) Their wealth rooted in California's gold rush, the Hearst family gave to the needy in the dec- ades that followed and cham- pioned working men's causes through a communications empire then unmatched in size and influence. Now, the family's two non- profit philanthropic foundations annually give away nearly million to charities, schools museums and such organizations as the Red Cross, the Anti-Defa- mation League and the Ameri- can Indian Movement of Mil- waukee, Wis. George Hearst, late great- grandfather of kidnapped Patricia Hearst, 19, brought the family into journalism. He assumed ownership of the San Francisco Examiner in payment of a bad debt in 1880. William Randolph Hearst, his son and builder of the vast publishing empire, took over The Examiner seven years later at the age of 24. And one of William's five1 sons, Ran- dolph, who is Patricia's father, now is president and editor of the paper. At William Randolph Hearst's death in 1951, the family fortune, diminished by the depression, was million. Hearst set aside for a charitable foundation and left the rest to his widow Youthful crime stopper runs down armed robber Rebel Tory Powell delivers one-two punch Forces help out A 19-ton generator is towed to a Canadian Forces Hercules aircraft at Rainbow Lake. The Unit was flown from the small northern Alberta community to Edmonton and then moved by truck to Jasper where fire distroyed the town power plant. LONDON-Rebel Tory Enoch Powell has bounced back into the forefront of British politics with his dramatic decision to speak for a group that is urging voters to support the Labor Party. With exquisite timing, Powell will dominate the front pages of Britain's massively- read Sunday newspapers five days before the country goes to the polls His speech in support of the Get Britain Out campaign, which wants Britain out of the Common Market, is set for Saturday afternoon in Birmingham, heart of the industrial Midlands where so much of his support is based. This guarantees it will be heard in time for the early evening deadlines of the Sunday papers, with their enormous print runs. It is the second half of the one-two punch for Prime Minister Edward Heath that Tory strategists have been dreading. His unexpected announcement earlier that he would not contest this election reduced the impact here of Heath's election call. Heath's surprise when he learned that Powell would not run was matched yesterday by his surprise when told at his daily press conference that his frequent tormentor would in- deed intervene in the cam- possibly declare support for Labor. It is pure speculation to say he may declare for Labor, but Powell is drawing the max- imum impact from the situation by refusing to do anything more than say he will make the Birmingham speech and another in Yorkshire Monday evening. The Get Britain Out cam- paign first appeared in 1962 Second beating fatal for 87-year-old widow when Christopher Frere- Smith began attacking plans for British entry into the market. Two years ago it became stronger with more funds and advertised its position extensively, con- ducting referendums it called national on whether Britain should get out. Now it has supporters and contributors including for- mer Tory MP Richard Body, writer Kingsley Amis, former Labor government paymaster-general Lord Wigg and Labor Lord Shinwell. Its bid to make the Common Market an election issue, in- cluding a controversial poster attacking Edward Heath, was receiving little attention until Frere-Smith declared yesterday morning that Powell would speak for the movement. The widely-distributed poster dismisses the miners' strike as an election "non- issue" and says the "real enemy of the country is the obsession of one man, Edward whose sole aim "is that Britain shall become the province of a European super- state." Greyhound official apologizes to patron TORONTO (CP) An official of Greyhound Lines of Canada Ltd., said Thursday he is "terribly sorry" to hear about a wheelchair occupant being denied access to a bus in Toronto last week and said he will look into the matter. Lewis and Jean Blancher complained last week they had to pay a taxi fare to get to Brantford, Ont., after a Greyhound driver refused to allow them to board a bus in Toronto. Mrs. Blancher, a cerebral palsy victim, was in a collapsible wheelchair. The Blanchers said they bad made the bus trip often in the last five years. ___________ PETERBOROUGH, Ont. (CP) Nora Wheeler, 87, lived alone in the country even though she was nearly beaten to death 10 years ago on a quiet road near her home. This week she was attacked again, in her home, and this time she died. The intruder beat her savagely and stabbed her twice in the heart with a pair of scissors. Her body was found by her widowed daughter, Jean Elliott of Peterborough, who had gone to the secluded home three miles east of the city when her mother did not answer her telephone calls. Mrs Elliott said in an interview "She was a little, sweet lady, but she was wiry and it appeared she struggled valiantly with the person who attacked her. "She had lived in that house for 45 years, and she loved the country and we could not con- vince her to move into town." Mrs. Wheeler's husband died in 1952. After the first attack she lost most of her hearing. Mrs. Elliott said she phoned her mother twice a day, and became alarmed when there was no answer. After she called the police, she said, she noticed there were no car tracks in the drive, but were footprints leading away from the house. The house had been ran- sacked, but Mrs. Elliott said her mother had no valuables. Insp. Casey Cotwa of the provincial police criminal investigation bureau "in Toronto is heading the investigation. No arrests have been made. Energy issue lost punch OTTAWA (CP) Energy, the issue that gripped MPs in the last session of Parliament, might not have the same punch in the new session that opens next Wednesday. The fear of shortages and the air of crisis that pervaded the Commons early in the winter appear to have evaporated tn the six weeks since the House adjourned Jan 11 Generally mild weather in the East, better-than- expected oil supplies and capacity production at most refineries have eased many of the worries that led the government to seek pre- cautionary emergency powers from Parliament. Legislation permitting wholesale-level and, if necessary, retail-level rationing was approved in the closing days of the session. None of the powers have been used and there is no sign the bill will be needed this winter. Despite the improved picture, energy is expected to remain an important parliamentary concern. One major energy bill, and possibly more, will be in- troduced in the new session. Prime Minister Trudeau nounced Dec. 6 the government would propose legislation to set up a national petroleum corporation. Few details were given but he said the company would focus initially on exploration and research to open up new energy reserves. PROVOKE DEBATE The legislation might provoke a lengthy debate among MPs. The New Democratic Party would like the government to establish the corporation by nationalizing one of the existing multinational oil companies something already ruled out by the prime minister. Other MPs, notably some Western Conservatives, want the government to avoid direct involvement in the petroleum industry and to give private companies incentives to develop adequate future oil resources. Other possible energy legislation includes a bill to extend the controversial erode oil export tax which expires at the end of March. PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) A 13-year-old Grade 8 student who chased, captured and dis- armed a robber says he did it because he hates crime. "The money was somebody else's property, and he shouldn't have David Blake Limbrick said. David works as a janitor for a few hours each Saturday at the Cleaning Bar in northeast Portland. He said he was washing windows last Saturday when a robber entered, showed a gun, and ordered the till opened. Also present were owner Mu- riel Rohr and another em- ployee. "He was about five feet six said David, who stands five 9Vz and weighs 135. "He had a .22-calibre magnum revolver in his band." The robber took the money, left the shop and put the gun in Ms pocket. David gave chase, but lost the man in a back yard. "Finally I spotted his foot- prints in the mud and they led me right to him, squatted down by a David said. "He didn't have the gun out. "He said he'd give me the money just so I didn't turn him in He said his wife was in the hospital. Then he handed the money over." He said he grabbed the rob- ber's arms and shoved him into the street. "That's when I took his gun away. The reasons I chased him at all were because he was little and because I thought it was a toy gun. When I realized it wasn't a toy gun it scared me pretty bad." David said he brought the man back to the cleaning shop at gunpoint and held him until the police arrived. The man, Ivan Johnson, 20, was charged with first-degree robbery. and sons. ESTABLISH FOUNDATIONS There are two foundations now. One of William Randolph Hearst to provide 75 per cent of a to feed the needy, which hopefully, will the release of Patricia Hearst. The 19-year-old co-ed was abducted Feb. 4 by the terrorist Symbionese Liberation Army. _ i The William Randolph Hearst Foundation declared in its 1972 income tax return, the latest one available, that it had given million in donations from assets of about million. Among recipients that year were the Harlem Preparatory School, here, the Negro Educational Emergency Drive in Pittsburgh, Pa., Boys' Clubs and the City of Hope in Los Angeles. The same year, the smaller Hearst Foundation declared total donations to various hospitals and religious organizations. At its peak, the Hearst em- pire had persons on a payroll. Its 28 newspapers across the country reached 12.5 million readers. Its 13 magazines including Good Housekeeping, Cosmopolitan and American Weekly reached 4.5 million. HELD WIDE INTERESTS Hearst also owned eight radio stations, two film companies, million in real estate and million in mining stock. The Hearst papers campaigned for an eight-hour work day, women's suffrage, antitrust legislation. and municipal ownership of certain public utilities. They vigorously fought com- munism and found merit in Mussolini's fascism and" Hitler's "New Germany" for- a time. Editorials would have to be signed f BOISE, Idaho (AP) The Idaho senate Thursday passed by a 21 to 14 vote a bill to require all newspapers in the state sign their editorials. Sponsors said the measure sent to the house would make newspapers more responsible for policies they advocate in editorials. Most debate on the measure concerned editorials in the Idaho Statesman, the state's largest newspaper at Boise, although the bill would apply to all 72 newspapers in the state. Parliament last month set the tax at a barrel for February and March but refused a government request to make the levy permanent Both Conservative and NDP members argued that long- range domestic oil pricing plans should be announced first Crude oil produced and used in Canada currently is frozen at about a below going international rates of more than a barrel. The freeze is scheduled to end March 31 and negotiations are under way with the provinces to determine how much and now fast prices should rise. The export tax represents the difference between domestic and international prices Because Ottawa and the provinces have agreed that domestic rates should remain below world price levels, some margin for a continuing export fax likely will remain even after spring increases take effect.
