Soviet Union still sick with fear MOSCOW (AP) -VlacUmir Bukovsky told a Moscow court before hs was sentenced to 12 years detention that the Soviet I Union is still sick with the fear inherited from the Stalin era. But Ibc 29-year-old dissident writer added that Soviet society has already begun the process of "spiritual enlightenment and it is impossible to stop." HOLLOW HAIR A copy of Bukovsky's re- hajrs a marks to the court Wednesday deer's winter coat are hollow, insulation from the winter cold through a kind of vacuum-bottle effect. was made available today to Bukovsky declared he was on trial borEuse ot his allcmpls to pass Informs'lion to the West about the detention of sane po- litical dissidenls in mental asy- lums. He was lo be sentenced, he said, because Sjviel authorities hate to "carry filth from the izba (peasant hut) in order that they can be viewed in (he world arena ES perfect defenders of oppressed peoples." "This society already under- Western correspondents by stands that the criminal is not members of the divider.', the or munity. I one who carries the filth I from the izba, but rather the I one who dirties the he as- serted. Bukovsky said his trial and punishment were meant to deter others active in the dissident movement. "With their reprisals against me, they want to threaten those who are trying (o tell the whole world about their crimes." Bukovsky was charged with "anti-Soviet agitation and prop- aganda" and was sentenced at the end of a one-day trial to two years in prison, five more in a labor camp and another five in exile. Name change shows feeling for the place VANCOUVER (CP) Zbltan Bernabe Tomas Martontiy, 29, o[ Vancouver said here he plans to change his name to Thomas Vancouver. Why? "My name right now la BO foreip, so impractical I have to spall it all the time In my business. I decided to change my name and chose Vancouver out of gratitude, because I like living here." QUEBEC (CP) A Czech- born doctor, who 'said he has spied for both the Soviet Union and the United States, told a news conference here that he entered Canada illegally in hopes of gaming his freedom. The man, who identified him- self as Janek S. Seebag-Montef- iore, said he heard reports that "about other persons had entered Canada illegally and now are enjoying their free- and he had succumbed to the same temptation. He said that on arriving in Montreal Sept. -2 by air from Britain, with a false British passport bearing the name Dr. Jonathan Wearn, he said he sought immigration officials to tell them his story. He now is being detained by the immigration department Gaza Strip-a place that's forgotten how to smile GAZA (AP) To the Israelis, the Gaza Strip has been the most troublesome of the areas they occupy. To the mayor, it' a place that has forgotten how to smile. The Strip, 30 miles long and four miles wide, is a finger ol sand dunes, citrus groves and refugee camps that juts into Is- rael from Sinai along the Medi- terranean coast. About two- thirds of the population are refugees. Camps have been the home for many since they fled from Palestine, now Israel, in the war of 1948. Grenade assaults and sabo- tage have made life miserable for both" Israeli soldiers and the Arab population. But the Is raelis report a "most spectacu- lar decline" in the activity of Arab guerrillas. The Israelis also point to more than Arabs from Gaza who are work- ing inside there is a shortage of unskilled labor. Oil firm moves rig on its own SHERWOOD PARK (CP) A Calgary oil firm said here it will move its drilling site away from a "natural to ac- commodate protesters. Drilling had been scheduled to start this week on 160 acres near this Edmonton suburb tliat had been set asidd by the pro' vincial government as a "nat- ural area." G. A. Van Wielingen, presi- dent of Sulpetro of Canada Ltd., said that after he received a communication from the Al- berta Fish and Game Associa- tion asking him not to drill in the natural area, he decided to look into the possibility of mov- ing the exploratory drilling site. He said the "company now will move the drilling site about 500 yards into the southwest comer of the land and off the natural area. The move, he said, is de- signed "to accommodate peo- ple like the fish and game as- sociation." "We were not forced to move. We did this of our own voli- tion. We had to re-survey and arc quite a bit out of pocket as we had already spent large amounts to drill on the first area." The company, with govern- ment permission, had already gone into the area with a bull- dozer nnd cleared a road and worksite. Bob Kitchener, vice presi- dent of the Alberta Fish and Game Association, said he ex- pects that the provincial gov- ernment will be "doing the fill and clean-up of the land" that has been disturbed. "However, if the government doesn't do it, we will." This development has grown de- spite occasional sabotage against buses carryisg workers. One year ago the strict cur- few and violence had turned Gaza City into an eerie town with motorized patrols forming the major traffic. Now the main street of Omar el-Mukhtar is al- most bustling with honking taxis and busy shops. But if his life is safer, the Gazan shows no outward joy. Mayor Rashid el-Shawa says: "The lessening of violence gives a false atmosphere of tranquil- ity. There is no satisfaction, only dissatisfaction." AHABS OFTEN HURT A Middle East ceasefire began in August, 1970, but in the following 12 months Gaza had 383 clashes between guerrillas and Israeli forces. Often an Arab bystander was hurt by a grenade or by flying an Arab suspected of collaborat- ing with the Israelis was killed by the guerrillas. To check the violence, the Is- raelis began a three-level pro- gram almost a year ago of mili- tary patrols to seek encounters with guerrillas, thinning out congested refugee camps and efforts for more economic in- vestment and general develop- ment of the area. An Israeli survey, claiming these methods contributed to re- ducing terrorist activity, re- ported not one act of sabotage in September and October, and only two cases of grenade throwing in October compared with 24 in June. El-Shawa is a wealthy 62- year-old citrus grower who ac- cepted a petition signed by Gazans to become mayor. His predecessor was dismissed by the military governor for "hos- tile behavior" and lack of initia- tive. Brig. Gen. Yitzhak Pun- dak, the military governor, said he did not want a collaborator but a "good mayor who will de- velop the city." Forestry tag added to agro at university EDMONTON (CP) In- creased educational responsibil- ity has resulted In a change of name for the faculty of agricul- ture, the University of Alberta has announced. The board of governors ap- proved the new faculty name of agriculture nnd forestry. Two years ago the faculty started offering courses in for- estry and recently won approv- al to offer a bachelor of sci- ence degree in forestry. Agri- culture staff members "did not feel that name faculty of agri- culture adequately covered all the courses taught." Students entering Uie faculty will be able to obtain a degree In cither agriculture or forestry. pending appeal Jan. 12 of a de- portation order. At his news conference, he re- vealed a convoluted story of for- eign intrigue involving countries in Europe, the Soviet Union, Middle East and United Stales. Mr. Seebag-Montefiiore said he was born in Czechoslovakia in 1936 but moved with his par- ents to Russia the following year where he grew up. SPIES FOR U.S. He said he was recruited for an espionage mission to the U.S., but the Americans discov- ered his purpose and offered to finance his medical education in the U.S. on the condition that he become a double agent. He Three years later, in 19W, carrying a U.S. passport, he W2S sent to London, and later to Germany and Israel at the time of the six-day war in 1987. After three years in the Mid- dle East, his nerves began to give him trouble and he be- scechcd the U.S. to give him total freedom. "That is all that I he said. He said he fled to Prague to see his family, but was arrested by Czech authorities. With help from an unidentified interna- tional organization he was al- towed to go to Rome, where he was interrogated by U.S. au- thorities. Mr. Seebag-Montefiore then was charged with a mission in Denmark, carrying a British passport under the name Wearn. FOUND BY RUSSIANS He told of meeting a Danish girl and of returning to the Mid- dle East and marrying her in Lebanon in January, 1971. It was in Lebanon that Soviet au- thorities discovered him and or- dered him to return to his na- tive Czechoslovakia. He refused. He said an attempt to re-enter Denmark failed when he was arrested for carrying false pa- pers. The Danish government permitted him to return to Le- banon with his wife. But, ha said, with a record so dangerous, he was forced to carry on alone. His wife was kidnapped but now is safe and sound in Denmark, he said, without elaborating. He told of visiting such di- verse countries as Switzerland, Taiwan, Ivory Coast, Jordan and now Canada in the last year. A decision by Canada to refuse his appeal means he will have to return to Britain his passport bearing the name Wearn And after? "I ignore It he said. "But it appears Canada is short of doctors and nobody would be happier than me if Canada ac- corded me Canadian citizen- ship."
