The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta January 3. W4 THE UETHMIDOJ HERALD Guatemala certain military man to be new president GUATEMALA CITY (Reuter) One thing is cer- tain about Guatemala's presidential election in military man will rule this Central American republic. Two generals and a colonel are the only candidates for a four-year term as president in this country which only two years ago was in a state of siege provoked by left-wing guerrillas. The former defence minister, Gen. Kjell Laugerud Garcia, 43, is the nominee of the ruling Conservative coalition. His main rival is Gen. Efrain Rios Montt, 47- year-old candidate of the Christian Democrat Party Col. Ernesto Paiz No- vales, 53, will represent the Revolutionary Party which ruled from 1966 to 1970. Outgoing President Carlos Ar'ana Osorio won fame in the 1970s for leading a military campaign against the guer- rillas. Constitutionally, Arana cannot run for re-election, but has thrown the support of the ruling coalition behind Lauge- rud. The presidential election takes place on March 3, at the same time as elections for the 51-member national congress and mayor of Guatemala City.

The ruling coalition is made ip of the National Liberation Vfovement and the In- stitutional Democratic Party. Formation of guerrilla group ended] LONDON (Reuter) British police believe they have stopped the formation of a guerrilla group in London following three arrests at Heathrow airport- one of an 18-year-old United States' girl carrying five automatic pistols and ammunition. Police sources said it was suspected the group might' have been ordered to London to step up attacks on promi- nent Jews here following the shooting of chain store chief Joseph Sieff. In an official statement Scotland Yard said the young American woman arrived at Heathrow from Los Angeles Dec. 29 and was found to have the guns and ammunition hidden in her luggage. She and a Moroccan waiting for her were arrested. The statement said that two days later a Pakistani arrived at Heathrow from Los Angeles and was being ques- tioned regarding his associa- tion with the other two. Security at Heathrow Air- port was at Ml strength as a result of the arrests. Police and immigration offi- cers were scrutinizing all passports of Middle-East visitors, and people who appeared even- slightly suspicious were undergoing intense searches.

Twenty years after the Korean War left it a wasteland, this nation of 31 million is rivalling Japan in the headlong growth of its gross national product up 19 per cent in the first six months of 1973, and expected to level off at around 16 per cent, totaling nearly billion for 1973. Yet, the offices of President Park Chung-hee are dimly lit and inadequately heated. Tax- is are running every other day on a staggered schedule. School children have been sent home from classes to save fuel in the cold winter ahead. HAY BUSTER For chopping loose or baled hay and grinding all gram, the Hay Buster is the machine to do a good job. AVAILABLE NOW AT GENERAL FARM SUPPLIES Count Highway, Bex 1202 Phone As in many other countries, the blueprint for South Korea's future has been smudged by oil, all of which comes from outside sources. Sunday driving is out, sauna baths close their doors early, and heating has been cut down in theatres, golf and tennis clubs in the campaign to save oil.____ The oil squeeze first resulted in higher prices of other raw materials on Dec. 5 when the government an- nounced average 23.3 per cent price hikes for 10 com- modities. Crude oil from the Persian Gulf, itself has been hiked from a barrel to The government still plans to boost steel production, a key project in its long term heavy industry program, but other industries dependent on oil will be seriously affected. In addition to everything else, the government is em- barrassed by the fact that the biggest overseas investor 1 currently is Japan, ruler of Korea for 35 years. Demonstrating students decry what they call government's sell-out to Japanese big business. The high cost of briquets and kimchi is particulary dis- turbing. The briquets, com- pressed coal dust, supply the fuel for the unique Korean under-the-floor heating system. Their price has gone up 5.3 per cent. Kimchi, a mouth tingling, blood-pulsing dish made of cabbage, radishes and fiery spices, is a staple of the diet, but the price of its ingredients has risen 29.4 per cent. All this could spell .trouble for President Park, already under pressure from students, intellectuals, Christians and others to return political and press freedoms he took away in October, 1972. .03 .05 "Highway 1 reported bare and dry.
