Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-07,Lethbridge, Alberta s China oil output increases TOKYO (AP) - Premier Oknj En-Iai says China's oil production reacbed a record liigh of 50 million tons in 1973, or two-Uurds more than tbe 1972 level, the Japanese Kyodo news service reported today. Fifty minion tons of oil is roughly 350 million tiarrels. Kyodo said Chou gave the roduction figure to visitiitg 'apanese Foreign Minister Masayosshi Chira. A Canadian trade mission which visited China last year reported China's 1973 oil output was 30 million tons. Kyodo said the reported increase in oil producticHi was due mainly to development of oil resources in the Tacheng and Sfaengli oil fields, China’s largest and second-largest, respectively, Tacheng is in the northeastern part of China, formerly referred to as Manchuria, and Shengli is in the northern part of the Shantung peninsula, east of Petcing. ^Devil driven ,9 Monday, /wiuwy 7,1174 - THI LCTHIMOOl HERALB - 5 away HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) - A Roman Catholic priest said Friday he was called upon to help drive evil spirits from the site of a former “pagan church” here after workmen refused to work on the structure. Rev. Francis Monaghan, vice-president of St. Thomas University, said he did not actually perform an exorcism, because he is not qualified to do So. Father Monaghan said he and the owner of the building, lawyer Thomas Whitcomb, a Protestant, prayed together Thursday for the evil spirits to leave. The action was taken after the workmen, who had seen the movie The Exorcist, said they feared the presence of evil spirits. Exorcism is performed in the movie, adapted from a best-selhng novel in which a child IS possessed by spirits Hie so-called Pagan Church was abandoned recently by Jim Pabner and his family. Ehiring its 5%-years, the church bad become well known locally for its free-love doctrine. Whitcomb, the new owner, said the workmen were back on the job Friday, considerably leas nervous after the prayer session Humphrey remains in hospital WASHINGTON (Reuter) -Senator Hubert Humphrey is under observation in Bethesda Naval Hospital following reported x-ray treatment for a possible malignant tumor in the bladder. The hospital confirmed today that the 62-year-old former vice-president was admitted Friday but declined to answer questions about his condition The Minneapolis Tribune quotes his physician, Dr Edgar Berman, as saying Humphrey would be examined to determine whether x-ray treatment he had undergone had damaged his general condition. Berman said he was about 7Q per cent sure the pinheadsized tumor had been destroyed, columnist Jack Anderson reported The columnist said Berman disclosed that he had given Humphrey periodic checks for cancer since the late 1960s when the senator reported bleeding from the bladder Lutheran clergyman dies at 73 BRIDGEWATER, N S.

Among other things new one-year language courses will be started for some senior public servants, replacing a series of three-week courses that in some cases have not been as effective as hoped. Efforts also are bemg made to encourage more pubUc ser-, vants to become bilingual. Not' long ago the official languages bureau began distributing 40,000 copies of a booklet-t^ch carries the message that learning a second language can be fun. Prime Minister Trudeau has bad a meeting with all deputy ministers, urging them to procede with delicate haste in making the public service more bilingual. The public service commission has hired a policy and planning expert from the urban affairs department to help, as one official put It, “straighten out” the bilingualism program. Paul Tellier is a youthful, bright former employee of the Privy Council Office and the Quebec provincial government. REPORTS VARY It is difficult to get details on progress of the bilingualism program. Reports vary between public servants personally affected and those who are not. The slowdown in implementation, announced in December, 1972, when the target date was pushed back to 197& from 1975, eased some of discontent, informed sources say, but there are still difficulties. Keith Spicer, official language commissioner, said recently that one of tbe most important responsibilities of his office is to change the climate surrounding the Official Languages Act—the bl-ble of the bUingualism program. The new booklet contains his own message that “leam^ ing another language should be a happy experience, based on freely-felt motivation to gain professional and perhaps cultural enrichment,” ^ • One official says language training will become more attractive with longer courses. Some senior putdic servants will take a full year away from their normal duties, instead of running back and forth between the language school and their offices. Some officials are expected to study outside the country. The government has more than 400 senior public servants who are trained to identify and designate language requirements in various government departments. More than 30 per cent of management and professional trainin ms now are in ‘ " Prime Minister Trudeau has said that only 10 per cent of the 250,000 pubUC service positions must be designated bilingual to make the public service function fully in both official languages. About half of these 25,000 posts now are filled with bilini^l persons. Hash consumption higher than thought Ex-GM of Albertan dies at 86 LONDON, Ont (CP) - Lt. Col. G.E. Leighton of London, former general-manager of the Calgary Albertan, died at the age of 86 Funeral services were held Saturday. Born in Middlesex, England, Col Leighton came to Canada prior to the First World War and subsequently enjoyed successful careers both as a journalist and a member of the armed forces.

WASHINGTON (AP)-!!« Senate internal security sub committee estimates that makings for more than flvt billion marijuana and hashisl cigarettes entered the Unitet States last year. This indicates “consump tion far exceeds any previouf estimates,” it said in a repori released Saturday. ^ Committee filiairmat James Eas^d'(Dem. Miss., said in « statement that i growing body of scientific research warns thai widespread use of the drugs "can do serious genetic damage to future generations The subcommittee’s es timate of imports was basec on Drug Enforcement ad ministration figures or seizures of marijuana anc hashish, both products of the cannabis plant, for the firsl nine months of 1973. Using these figures anc projecting them for the final three months of the year, the estimate assumes thai roughly 10 times as much marijuana and hashish gets into the country as is seized b> authorities. Eastland called this a fairly conservative rule of thumt and said it^ndicates that total consumption of marijuana in 1973 was roughly 17 million pounds and of hashish about 500,000 pounds. “We have been concentrating on the heroin epidemic for the past two years, and there seems to be some solid evidence of progress in dealing with this affliction,” Eastland said. Man left $60,000 in bag MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Police say they are looking for a paper bag said to contain $60,000 in cash and jewelry that was left in the lobby of a hospital. Police said Friday that Nathan Serota, a contractor from Valley Stream, N.Y., told them the bag contained f12,000 in cash and more than a dozen pieces of jewelry, including a l5-carat, $16,000 pear-shaped diamong ring. Serota said that after visiting his daughter in the hospital he rushed out to catch an airline flight for New York and in his haste left the bag on a couch in the lobby. Whoever found the bag can keep the cash if the uninsured jewelry is returned, he 'aid. c RC PRIESTHOOD IN THE DECLINE VATICAN CITY (AP) - The Vatican’s statistical yearbook shows that 3,659 Roman Catholic priests left their dioceses and religious orders in 1971.
