Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, February News in brief Korean navy tug sinks SEOUL (AP) Officials said today that 157 seamen missing from a South Korean navy tug that sank Friday are feared dead. Rescue workers continued their search for the men today despite high waves and freezing cold. Two seamen died after they were pulled from the waters Friday, and another 157 of the 316 men aboard the tugboat were rescued. The tug capsized while ferrying the seamen, most of them navy recruits, to a ship 700 yards offshore. School permissiveness flayed VANCOUVER (CP) Hundreds of city high school teachers applauded Friday as the head of the University of British Columbia classics department attacked permissiveness in Education. About half the audience of members of the Vancouver Secondary School Teachers Association laughed and clapped approvingly as Malcolm McGregor said a loss of "the old discipline" in the school system has led to neglect of basic subjects. Dr. McGregor said talk of a student bill of rights was outrageous and said students shouldn't have time for such activities. Panelist Tony Emery, Vancouver art gallery director, said he was horrified at the volume of support for Dr. McGregor's statements and won equally loud applause. Thieu transfers officials SAIGON (AP) President Nguyen Van Thieu has trans- ferred or fired 15 general offi- cers and at least six civilian officials in an effort to reduce corruption, government sources said today. They said the move is part of a sweeping reorganization in the government aimed at turning around the failing economy, inspiring confidence in government officials and making territory secure from the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong. The transfers and firings, also seen as an attempt by Thieu to increase his political power, came only a week after Thieu fired most of his cabinet. A new cabinet was named last Monday. NATO budget worries Grechko MOSCOW (AP) Soviet Defence Minister Andrei Grechko painted a gloomy picture of the international scene today and warned that the Russian army and navy are ready and sufficiently equipped to "rout any aggressor." In an article in the Commu- nist party newspaper Pravda marking army and navy day, he said "reactionary forces are furiously resisting international detente, are increasing the arms race and their preparations for a world war." Grechko said his proof was found in the increasing military budgets of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization members who have aimed their "spearhead against our country." Wiley named FCC chief WASHINGTON (AP) Richard Wiley, appointed to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 1972, was named Friday to succeed Dean Burch as its chairman. 'Burch, a veteran Republican political strategist, is joining the White House staff as a counselor with cabinet rank after heading the FCC for nearly five years. The agency oversees the United States broadcast and communications industries. New subpoena mailed LOS ANGELES (AP) An- other subpoena for President Nixon to testify in the Los An- geles trial of three former White House aides has been mailed to Washington, with the judge taking precautions this time to insure that delivery is not delayed. The precautions were taken because the first subpoena to Nixon, mailed in Los Angeles Feb 4, took more than a week to get to the clerk of the Dis- trict of Columbia Superior Court Court officials said the sub- poena mailed Friday was prompted by the rescheduling of a pretrial hearing for John Ehrlichman, David Young and Gordon Liddy. Defence lawyers have sought to subpoena the president for testimony to prove their contention that their clients were acting as federal law enforcement officers in connection with a break-in at the office of a psy- chiatrist who had treated Pen- tagon Papers figure Daniel Ellsberg. The latest subpoena calls for Nixon to appear both at the pretrial hearing and at the trial itself, now scheduled to begin April 15. Deaths BRIDGE RUG DRAPES LTD.

Energy chief William Simon announced Friday night, for the second time during the week, additional allotments for certain states. But a spot check across the country found motorists having a harder time getting gasoline in many areas as dealers exhausted their monthly allocations. Simon said 326 million gallons of gasoline will go to service stations very quickly, in some cases immediately. Ten-per-cent increases in the February gasoline Britain coping with short week LONDON (AP) British industry is coping with the three day work week far better than expected, a countrywide survey shows. So far, manufacturers seem to be getting four days' production out of three days' electricity supplies, says the Confederation of British Industry. The CBI, which speaks for big business, now suggests that industry is likely to get through Britain's energy crisis without undue harm, provided the coal miners' strike is settled by early March. Coal supplies 70 per cent of Britain's electricity, but at current rates of Washington told ease Cuba policy MEXICO CITY (AP) A number of Latin American foreign ministers have called on the United States to soften its position toward Cuba, with one calling Washington's policy "sheer Stone Age stupidity The Cuba issue was the focus during a closed meeting Friday night between U S. State Secretary Henry Kissinger and the 24 Latin American and Caribbean ministers attending the hemispheric conference The ministers are to conclude the three-day session later today by drawing up a declaration. A U.S. spokesman said Kis- singer did not respond to the comments about Cuba. Premier Fidel Castro's re- gime, largely at the insistence of Washington, has been ostra- cized from the Organization of American States since 1961 and the subject of an economic blockade by the U.S. since 1962. There have been increased pressures in recent months from other Latin American countries for the U.S. to lift the blockade and for Washington to move toward normal relations with Cuba. MADE PROPOSAL Conference sources said that, during the meeting Friday night, Peru formally proposed that Cuba be present at any future foreign ministers conference, and the proposal was supported by Colombia. Guyana and Jamaica. "Cuba is a four-letter word as far as this conference is concerned.'" 'Jamaican Foreign Minister Dudley Thompson was reported to have said. "To ignore Cuba is sheer, Stone Age stupidity. Jamaica refuses to join anyone who takes an ostrich stance." During the conference, Kissinger proposed forming a commission to probe the activities of giant companies in the hemisphere, and a fact- finding board to defuse expropriation and na- tionalization problems before they turn into confrontations between governments.
