Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, January 9, 1971 Rabies control program begins EDMONTON (CP) - A central rabies control committee to co-ordinate all anti-rabies work in Alberta was announced Friday by Agriculture Minister H. A. Ruste. The provincial department of health has made pre-exposure immunization available to veterinarians, wildlife officers, police and others whose work might expose them to direct contact with infected animals, Mr. Ruste said in a news release. Based on experience and success of a rabies control program used between 1952 and 1956, the decision has again been made to try and control, and hopefully eliminate the disease in its natural environment, he said. "This involves locating an in- fected animal then eliminating others of the same species within a certain prescribed radius. "This type of control does not mean massive slaughter or complete depopulation," Mr. Ruste said. "Initial efforts are being directed to those areas where rabies has been identified with coyotes and where municipal coyote control programs now exist." In general, Mr. Ruste said, the department of agriculture is accepting responsibility for agricultural areas, and lands and forests for forest regions, parks, campsites and recreational areas. "Close co-operation will ensure an integrated program."

The bureau based its assessment on a new study of media habits and attitudes conducted by the Gilbert Youth Research. The study samples a cross-section of more than 1,600 Americans between the ages of 14 and 25. The survey found that 73 per cent of all 14- to 25-year-oWs read one or more daily newspapers on the average weekday, compared with 78 per cent of all adults. Other findings of the survey: The young spend almost as much time as adults with each newspaper and absorb advertising as well as editorial content; as they grow up they read newspapers more, watch television less; more responsible and mature young people are most likely to read the newspapers on any given day. Bombers attack missile site SAIGON (AP) - A United States fighter-bomber attacked an anti-aircraft missile site in North Vietnam Friday after the missile battery threatened U.S. B-52 bombers, military spokesmen announced today. They said no missiles were actually fired. Disclosure of the attack, the first reported raid over North Vietnam since Nov. 30, came while U.S. defence Secretary Melvin R. Laird was in Saigon for a four-day visit to South Vietnam. ducted Bucher in Rio last Dec. 7 have said they would release the diplomat as soon as the prisoners arrive safely at their destinations. In a brief note Friday announcing its agreement to release the prisoners, the government said it now considers the list submitted by the guerrillas as complete. The note, signed by the ministers of justice and foreign relations, gave no departure time or destination for the prisoners, but the kidnappers have demanded that the prisoners be flown to Algeria. Mexico or Chile. Government sources had threatened to kill Bucher unless their ransom demands were met. The government refused two of the demands-that a revolutionary manifesto be published and that Rio's suburban trains give free passage to all customers during the negotiations. The government also said it would not free any prisoners if they were serving long sentences or if they were involved in previous kidnappings or murders. It rejected some names from earlier lists submitted by the guerrillas, saying some prisoners did not want to leave the ' country. mi R0THMANS CALENDAR OF COMING EVENTS Muubg � community went?

No negotiations for ambassador MONTEVIDEO (AP) - The Uruguayan government says it will not negotiate with the terrorists who abducted British Ambassador Geoffrey Jackson by intercepting his limousine and clubbing his guards to the ground. The foreign ministry said in a statement, however, that "we will spare no effort to protect his life and obtain his immediate liberation." There has been no word from the kidnappers. The government has refused to deal with guerrillas responsv ble for six previous political kid nappings, but Jackson ranks higher than the previous victims. The 55-year-old British ambassador was abducted Friday as he was being driven to the embassy.

Contracts worth about $750 million to build the new 688 class submarines were awarded Friday night by Navy Secretary John H. Chafee. They will complement the current 41-vessel fleet of Polaris- and Poseidon-equipped submarines built during the last decade. Chafee said it is anticipated that more ships of the same new design will be built in subsequent years. He did not specify how many, but some reports mentioned a total of 24. The first of the new craft is scheduled to be delivered in late 1974. Its primary role in war will be to hunt and destroy enemy missile and attack submarines. There has been mounting concern over the buildup of the Soviet Union's missile-firing submarine fleet, which Defence Secretary Melvin R. Laird has estimated will match or surpass the American Polaris fleet by early 1974.' Latin American leftist guerrillas now hold four kidnap victims as hostages for the release of prisoners and other demands, Tupamaros in Uruguay hold Claude L. Fly, U.S. soils expert abducted Aug. 7, and Atoysio Mares Dias Gomide, a Brazilian consul taken from his home in Montevideo July 31. Dias Gomide has been held captive longer than any other political kidnap victim. ANOTHER AMBASSADOR HELD The fourth hostage, Swiss Ambassador Giovanni Bucher, has been held captive by guerrillas in Brazil since he was abducted month ago. Tupamaros also kidnapped Dan Mitrione, an American adviser to Uruguyan police, last August and murdered him when the government refused to bow to their demands. Jackson is the first British ambassador to be kidnapped but is the second British diplomat abducted in the Western Hemisphere in three months. British Trade Commissioner James R. Cross was kidnapped by quebec terrorists in Montreal last Oct. 5 and was released two months after his abductors were given safe passage to Cuba.

Lee Emerson as president and chief executive officer-Emerson's appointment to the top spot in the deeply-troubled Canadian subsidiary of the U.S. Industrial giant was announced by Jack J. Carlson, president and chief executive officer of the parent Kaiser Steel Corp. who had also been president of Kaiser Resources. , Just a week ago, Mr. Carlson announced a $25 million loan to Kaiser Resources by Japan' ese Interests to which sale of the company's coal is contracted. This was on top of the nearly $100 million Kaiser had spent putting its East Kootenays mining properties into operation and Carlson said the loan alone would not solve the company's problems. In addition to the loan, the company would have to renegotiate its sales contracts with the Japanese, a procedure which he thought would extend to next spring. First official word that me giant coal extracting operation was in trouble came last October when the company reported a net operating lorn of 27 cents a share for the first nine months of 1970.

The meeting followed the death late last month in the hospital of a 19-year-old youth who had refused a blood trans fusion. Doctors, who said the youth was suffering from internal bleeding, invited members of the sect to explain the situa* rjon at their weekly meeting of patient - care staff and chaplains. One doctor later said nothing was decided. "A decision by an adult against a transfusion leaves the medical profession with its hand tied," he said. "Anyone under 18 could be made a ward of the court, but there's nothing we can do if it's an adult."
