Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 - THI IETHBRIDOI HERALD - Wednesday, January 6, 1971 Israeli policy change key to mid-east peace By CY FOX LONDON (CP) - Foreign Minister Mahmoud Rlad of Egypt said today the success of renewed attempts by mediator Gunnar Jarring to achieve peace in the Middle East de- pends on Israeli willingness to withdraw from occupied Arab territories. Riad said he does not expect such a development in Israeli policy. "But we hope that one day Davis lawyers want trial moved SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) -The defence for black militant Angela Davis says it will move to have her trial held away from the Marin County courthouse where four men died in an escape attempt she is accused of helping to plot. Howard Moore of Atlanta, head of the five-lawyer defence team handling the former philosophy instructor's case, said Tuesday in an interview that he will try to have the trial held either in San Francisco or in Los Angeles. Moore and the other defence lawyers appeared with Miss Davis Tuesday at a continuation of her arraignment on charges of murder, kidnap and conspiracy. During the session Miss Davis, an avowed Communist, read a prepared statement declaring she is innocent and the target of "a political frameup." Miss Davis is charged with furnishing four guns used in the escape attempt last Aug. 7 in which a judge, two convicts and a youth who brought the weapons into court were killed. REMOVED FROM COURT Her fellow defendant, San Quentin convict Ruchell Magee, 31, was removed from the hearing as he shouted defiantly at Superior Court Judge Joseph Wilson. Magee, who survived the escape try, protested that he wanted to represent himself rather than have a court-appointed lawyer. He had been shackled hand and foot to a chair bolted to the QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capilel Furniture Bldg. mi PHONE 328-7684BB ANGELA DAVIS "a political frameup" floor because of repeated outbursts during several previous pre-trial court sessions held behind San Quentin prison walls. Miss Davis' chief counsel for pre-trial proceedings, Allan Brotsky, made motions for bail and for dismissing the grand jury indictments on grounds of insufficient evidence, improper makeup of the grand jury and extensive pre-trial publicity. Judge Wilson gave the defence until Feb. 5 to file motions Hid supporting material and gave the state until Feb. 22 to reply. Bus kills boy EDMONTON (CP) - David Walter Paradowski, 5, was killed when he was struck by a school bus that had just brought him to his home in east Edmonton. they (Israel) will renounce their policy of expansion and that peace will come to the Middle East once again," the foreign minister told a news conference. Riad placed great emphasis on the role of the Big Four powers in achievement' of a Middle East peace. But he said Egypt is not oblivious to the influence of other powers such as Canada and the countries of Africa and Asia in peace attempts. "That is why we went to the General Assembly of the United Nations asking all the powers to do their best to see that peace is achieved," said Riad, who has been meeting British officials in London. URGED BY UN He said that the Security Council resolution of November, 1967, called on the Israelis to withdraw from territory they had won in the six-day war earlier that year and also insisted on guarantees for a peace in the area. It is up to the Security Council and the big powers to determine precisely what these guarantees should be and whether they should include "physical intervention," Riad said. He recalled that Egypt had agreed to the possible use of a UN peace force but "we never snid who should be its members or what will be their task." Asked whether the present ceasefire will be extended when it expires Feb. 5, Riad said be favors its permanent extension. But if Israel has not indicated by next month that it plans to withdraw from occupied Arab territories, then it will remain for the UN and the Big Four to do something under the UN charter, he said.

(CP) - Police were justified in engaging in a gun battle that killed the father of NHL player Brian Spencer, a coroner's jury ruled Tuesday night in this central British Columbia city. It returned a no - blame-attached verdict in the death Dec. 12 of Roy Edward Spencer, 59, of Fort St. James, B.C., shot down in front of television station CKPG after he had forced the station off the air at gunpoint. The senior Spencer had driven the nearly 100 miles from his home community to protest that Army trucks roll out of Montreal MONTREAL (CP)-A connd Holiday, U hVlttWQiU oUj �.m. to 4 p.m. / C/l SUPER SAVINGS AT THRIFTWAY DRUGS mander J. C. Bonneau, said he was informed by the defence department in Ottawa that the troops were withdrawn at the request of Quebec Justice Minister Jerome Choquette. A department statement said: "Most of the troops in the Montreal area in aid to civil power have returned to their home bases. The remainder will undergo various short exercises before returning to their home bases." Cmdr. Bonneau said the convoy left Montreal for Valcartier army base near Quebec City bearing members of the 3rd Battalion of the Royal 22nd Regiment and the 12th Regiment Blinde du Canada. The army came into the city Oct. 15 at the joint request of Mayor Jean Drapeau and police director Marcel St. Aubin. They were placed under the command of Director Maurice St. Pierre of the provincial police who, under terms of the Police Act, was also placed in charge of all police forces in the provinces. At the height of the Front de Liberation du Quebec kidnap crisis it was estimated that more than 7,000 troops had been sent to the city from across the country. In full battle dress, the soldiers took up posts around municipal and provincial police headquarters and around major government buildings and others in the city's financial dsi-trict. the station was not televising a game in which his son, forward Brian Spencer, 21, was playing with Toronto Maple Leafs. "We believe the RCMP officers had reasonable and probable grounds to return fire to protect themselves as well as the protection of others," the jurors said in their verdict. The inquest was told that of the shots fired by Spencer-three in all-one struck RCMP Constable Dave Pidrucbny in the foot and another hit the holster of Cpl. Roger Post. PROUD OF SON Spencer, a gravel pit operator tremendously proud of his son's rise to big-league hockey, was alive at the scene but was pronounced dead on arrival at hospital. Pathologist Dr. Vernon Eraser testified that S'oencer was hit once in the left shoulder, once in the right armpit-a shot puncturing the lung-and once in the mouth. Dr. Fraser testifed that either the shot in the right arm or the mouth could have been fatal. He said Spencer had a blood-alcohol reading of .05 per cent, under the generally accepted limit of impairment. Spencer's widow testified that she last saw her husband at 5 a.m. before he drove off to Prince George on the day of his death. Spencer, the inquiry was told, ordered the station off the air shortly after 7 p.m. Cpl. Post testified that he was on duty with a fellow officer when they received a radio call that there was an armed man at a radio station. They did not know which radio station but since they were only three blocks away from CKPG, they went to its parking lot. Other police testimony was that it was Spencer who opened fire; that he was found with a pistol which had she live rounds in it and that it was cocked to fire. It was a weapon that holds nine rounds. Cpl. Gordon Anderson testified that an examination of Spencer's car the day following the shooting uncovered ammunition, a rifle magazine and a .303 rifle. Also in the car were hunting knives and a 40-ounce bottle of wine, three-quarters full. AntUwar group plans takeover RC priest wins big soccer pool BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) - Rev. James Curtin, a Roman Catholic priest who won �109,000 ($272,500) on the soccer pools, today gave �25,000 to the Glasgow soccer disaster fund. He said he will give most of the balance to charities. A last-minute goal scored by Glasgow Rangers against Celtic at Ibrox Stadium Saturday helped Father Curtin to win his prize. And that goal was believed to have started the crush that resulted in 66 persons, including a Canadian visitor and his son, being killed as they tried to leave the jammed stadium. A fund for the victims' relatives, started by the Rangers club, now has pased �100,000. "This terrible disaster in Glasgow would not have happened if the equalizing goal had not been scored," the 51-year-old Irish-bom priest said. "Had one team won, I should not have had the eight draws on my coupon and-1 would not have won the prize. Naturally I regret my success." Father Curtin said he played the pools in the hope of winning enough to pay off the �3,000 debt on his new church hall. Now he has allocated �18,000 of his winnings to the East Pakistan disaster fund, and another large sum to a local Catholic orphanage. As for his own church, he plans to pay off the debt on the ball and spend another �9,000 on church repairs and a new electronic organ. He said he would keep about �4,000 for himself. "There is happiness and joy in giving it away," Father Curtin said. "I have no time for money. As long as I can pay my way, that is all I am interested in." Luck/ $272,500 coupon winner Dentists in B.C. to hike fees VANCOUVER (CP) - British Columbia's dentists have decided to introduce a 13.5-percent fee increase in two steps during the next 12 months instead of all at once, the College of Dental Surgeons of B.C. announced Tuesday. College President Dr. G. A. Freeze of North Vancouver said the fee schedule will be increased sue per cent immediately and 7.5 per cent by next Jan. 1. Public pressure and a request from Premier W. A. C. Bennett to hold the fee line prompted the decision, he said. The college has about 1,000 members. Dr. Freeze said dental fees have r e m a i n ed unchanged since May, 1968. An increase planned for last May 5 was not put into effect at the request of the federal prices and incomes commission. "Remember, we are not a union," he said. "Each individual dentist is an entrepreneur out in the cold, cold world." The fee schedule covering about 250 dental procedures is only a guideline and some dentists charge more or less than the set fees. WASHINGTON (Aeuter) -FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover warned today that an anti-war group is planning to shut down Washington unless the United States government agrees to an ultimatum to withdraw totally from Vietnam by May. Hoover, in a wide-ranging, year-end report on the activities of the FBI said the National Co- U.S. combat role to end this year PARIS (Reuter) - U.S. Defence Secretary Melvin Laird said here today American combat responsibility in South Vietnam will end this summer as Saigon troops take over the burden. Laird evidently was referring only to ground combat since he added that American forces would continue in a logistic and air support role. After this summer, he told a news conference, the task of remaining U.S. combat forces would be to protect and secure units assigned to logistic and air roles. Laird, who stopped off in Paris to talk with U.S. peace negotiators before flying to South Vietnam for an inspection tour, said the Nixon administration's aim was still a negotiated settlement. alltlon Against War, Racism and Repression has sent a delegation to negotiate a peace treaty with North Vietnam. It is planned to circulate this treaty throughout the United States for ratification by the people. After this, an ultimatum would be issued to the U.S. government to totally withdraw from Vietnam by May, 1971. "If this is not done, the plans for closing down Washington will . be put into motion by NCAWRR," Hoover's report An FBI spokesman told Reuter news agency he did not want to go into details of what is planned to shut down Washington, but he understands it includes such things as blocking bridges into the city from neighboring Virginia.
