THI LETHBRIDCE HERALD - Tuwdny, January S, 1971 Sadat sees all-out war CAIHO (AP) - Egyptian President Anwar Sadat predated here Uiat Egypt would fight an all-out war against Israel and told cheering followers that "we've become strong mill- PRESIDENT SADAT ... No compromise tarily, economically and politically." "There will be no compromise, and we will not give up one iota of our land," Sadat declared as a huge crowd shouted approval. "We will fight ... we will fight." ' The president was addressing a rally in the Nile Delta town of Tanta half way between Cairo and Alexandria. It marked the first leg of an extensive tour to help put Egypt on a war footing. "The battle will not be restricted to the front line alone.. . . It will extend to our farms, our factories, in the towns, cities and on the streets," he said. "We all are your soldiers, Sadat; we are all your soldiers for 1 i b e r a t i o n," the crowd roared. WILL USE FORCE Sadat reiterated the words of late President Gamal Abdel Nasser: "What was taken by force can be regained only by force." He declared that the Egyptian people have spent $186 million on a vast missile buildup along the Suez canal front. Sadat hailed the Soviet Union for furnishing his armed forces with rockets which "helped us win air battles against Israel and the United States in 1969." Sadat vowed "never to withdraw even a single rocket from the front line." The president reaffirmed that Egypt will not accept a further extension for withdrawal of Israeli forces from occupied Arab territories. In this connection Sadat insisted that "we will give in to no power on earth." "They (the U.S., and Israel) believe we are. eager for peace at any expense. They are wrong. We will not forfeit our right. We will- not abandon the struggle to reclaim the usurped rights of Palestinians." Sadat added: "We are ready, and we are stronger than ever before. The next battle will not only be decisive but fateful, and we are well equipped for electronic warfare." Sadat cautioned, however, that "the enemy is still powerful and capable of inflicting losses, but we arc prepared to pay the price of victory no matter how dear it may be." Sadat charged that the United States is trying to foment discord between Egypt and the Soviet Union but said "our Soviet friends continue to back us honorably and honestly."

OLD TRADITION Sausage making, which -goes back as far as recorded history, originated as a means of preserving meat. MONTREAL (CP) - For thousands of hopeful participants it remains a game of chance, but to the provincial government the state-run lottery Loto-Quebec has proven to be a solid business venture. During the initial eight months of its operation, up to Sept. 30, more than 19,000 subscribers across Canada had received a total $5,830,200 for their gamble. Gross revenue for the province was $21,057,800. And from the lavish .Loto-Quebec headquarters on the 21st floor of a downtown skyscraper, President Maurice Custeau predicts a first-year subscription gross of $50 million. Net income, he said in an interview, could reach $22 million in that time-twice the amount anticipated when the Quebec government began the scheme. The province's initiative followed amendments to the Criminal Code in 1969 allowing pro-vincially-operated lotteries in Canada. MONTREAL FIRST Montreal Mayor Jean Drap-eau's city lottery, officially designated a voluntary tax operation to circumvent the law before it was changed, was plagued by court actions and some moral opposition. It passed by the wayside when the provincial government stepped in with Loto-Quebec. Meeting unexpected success in the first four months of operation, Loto-Quebec officials decided to add two lotteries to the monthly contest, now called the Inter-Loto, which offer a chance at a $125,000 first prize for $2 a ticket. For fifty cents subscribers now are eligible for weekly draws for a $5,000 first prize and other cash awards in the Mini-Loto. Tickets of $4 for the quarterly Super-Loto also went on sale. Among the dozens of big money prizes is one for $200,000. TICKETS DISPLAYED The Loto-Quebec organization uses maximum exposure in sale by displaying tickets for the various Lotos at banks, stores and stands throughout the province. Distribution of weekly Mini-Loto tickets involves 40 distributors on 33 sales routes throughout Quebec and more than 8,200 authorized agents. Continued popularity is guaranteed by a program that divides the province into five districts.

He said winning tickets turn up in rural areas In most draws. The operation has been streamlined by a computer system that registers ticket holders and supervises the draws. Paper publishes manifesto demanded by guerrillas MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (AP) - A major Montevideo newspaper published an anti-government manifesto today that was the key demand of a guerrilla organization that has held U.S. soil expert Claude Fly in captivity for nearly five months. The Tupamaro guerrillas had demanded that the manifesto be published in six newspapers and broadcast over radio and television in exchange for the release of Fly, who was kidnapped Aug. 7. BP-Color, which published the manifesto, was on the Tupama-ros' list of newspapers that it wanted to carry the statement. Two other small weekly newspapers also have carried the statement. Government sources declined to comment on the action of BP-Color and also declined speculation on whether the release of Fly might be imminent BAN LIFTED Last week the government of President Jorge Pacheco Areco relaxed a ban on all mention of the Tupamaros in the local press. It previously had rigidly enforced the ban, closing several newspapers for brief periods for violations. The Tupamaros are holding a second captive, Aloysio Dias Gomide, a Brazilian diplomat, who was kidnapped a week before Fly- The Tupamaros have apparently sought to negotiate separately for release of Dias Gomide. He was not included in their original offer to release Fly if the manifesto was published. Dias Gomide's wife says the guerrillas have set a ransom demand of $1 million for his release. She has not been able to raise it. A third guerrilla captive, U.S. police adviser Dan Mitrione, was executed by the Tupamaros shortly after he was kidnapped.
