ONE OF THE VIGILANTE VICTIMS Heath, Trudeau talk arms sale NEW DELHI (CP) - Prime Ministers Trudeau and Heath will meet here today, split over British policy of selling arms to South Africa. Trudeau, a strong critic of selling arms to the apartheid slate, and the British leader are cn their way to the Commonwealth prime ministers conference in Singapore, where a jrwjor argument is expected over the arms issue. The Canadian leader also will have talks with Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. The British arms sales to the South Africans-still not made-are expected to figure in the discussions. India also opposes the sales. Trudeau stopped over Sunday at Mathura for a visit to the birthplace of the Hindu god Lord Krishna, and was welcomed by priests into their temples as if he were a Brahman, the highest of the Hindu social castes. The priests applied sandalwood paste to his forehead, placed a gold and silver-laced saffron scarf around his neck and then permitted him to walk -after taking off his shoes-to the inner sanctum of the temple from which non-Hindus normally are barred. The prime minister placed a marigold garland at the feet of a statue of a god. A priest wished the "blessings of Lord Buddha" on Trudeau while maroon-robed, shaven-headed monks sat on the ground and chanted a prayer for the prime minister. MPs return During the visit to the temple an old man fell to his knees and tried to kiss Trudeau's feet, but the prime minister helped him to his feet. The Canadian leader's visit to the temples took place at Brin-daban near Agra, where there is a city of temples devoted to Krishna. At Mathura, near'Agra, Trudeau looked'at *2,000-year^)ld Eandlewood sculptures. Trudeau arrived in India Saturday on a Canadian armed forces jet after a visit to Pakistan. His first stop was Agra, and he spent an hour at the Taj Mahal there. Mustard gas protesters hurled back to grind OTTAWA (CP)-The House of Commons resumes operations today, with plenty of work in store for MPs following a three-week Christmas recess. Debate will begin immediately on a bill designed to improve the system of paying veterans' allowances. Following closely after will be a bill dealing with young offenders before the courts, which ihould be more controversial. Bolivian government crushes army revolt Irish youths tarred BELFAST CAP) - Vigilantes of the outlawed Irish Republican Army took the law into their own hands during the weekend and tarred and feathered four young men for petty crimes against Belfast Roman Catholics. "This incident should be taken as a warning by others," said a spokesman for the I.R.A. "Money-lenders, racketeers and extortionists will get the same treatment. The I.R.A. will not stand far gangsterism any more." The I.R.A. claims that the Protestant police in Northern Ireland are not protecting the Catholic minority. A crowd of shoppers looked on Saturday night as a gang of men grabbed two youths in the Catholic Falls Road area and poured tar and chicken feathers over them. The gang hung placards around their victims' necks which said: "This man has been found guilty and confessed to breaking and entering and this sentence has been passed by the Republican movement." CHAINED TO RAILING A third young man covered with pitch and feathers was found Sunday morning, chained to an iron railing outside a church. The fourth man, a former soldier in the British army, was found tarred and feathered Sunday night. Republican sources said the men had been convicted at I.R.A. trials held in a private house. Police were checking the reports of the kangaroo court, but none of the victims would tell the police anything. "They were obviously afraid cf more serious punishment," said a police spokesman. Also in Belfast, a bomb exploded S'unday night in a club in a Protestant area, but no one was hurt. Such explosions occur almost every weekend. NAHA, Okinawa (AP) - About 200 Okinawans protesting the movement of deadly mustard gas across their island were driven back early today from two U.S. bases. The demonstrators attacked some hours after American authorities announced' a two-day delay in the start of transfer of the gas from storage on Okinawa to Johnston Island, in the mid-Pacific. More than 100 demonstrators armed with rocks and bamboo poles tried to force their way into a compound in Chibana where some of the gas is stored. Seventy U.S. marines blocked cnother 100 protesters trying to break through the main gate at Camp Hague, on the route over which a convoy was to transport an initial shipment of mustard gas. Movement of the gas was to have begun today but was delayed because of threats by leftists and some villagers to block the shipment. They claimed the convoys would endanger the lives of those living along the seven-mile route to the harbor. LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) - A group of army officers seized the armed forces headquarters in La Paz early today in rebellion against Bolivia's three-month-old leftist military regime. A few hours later Pesident Juan Jose Tores announced the revolt had been crushed. TAKE REFUGE In a broadcast, Gen. Torres said some leaders of the coup had taken refuge in foreign embassies-chiefly in the embassy of Peru. Torres called them right-wingers and reactionary subversives. In the early hours, the rebels announced they were acting to keep Bolivia from being delivered to "another imperialism as dismal as that of North America." They did not identify it. Torres assured the nation that a state of normality had been restored and urged workers to report to their jobs as usual. SEIZED BY REBELS Early in the revolt, Col. Jorge Sanchez, a rebel spokesman, claimed several top loyalist officers at military headquarters had been seized by the rebels, including the army commander, Gen, Luis Reque Teran. Shortly afterward, a government spokesman termed the situation at that time dangerous but said loyalist troops had the headquarters surrounded and could move in at any time. ACCUSES REBELS The leftist military government charged that the rebels were trying to set up a "dictatorship of the right." It warned that "the people will fight for their revolution." Col. Sanchez, the rebel spokesman, said the rebel movement known as The Nationalist Troops of the Armed Forces had decided to overthrow the government because it was on the verge of handing the nation over to "another imperialism." Sources close to the regime said the anit-government leaders included Col. Hugo Banzer, transferred last week to a remote outpost on the Chilean border. Banzer was commandant of the military college but was accused three weeks ago of conspiring to assassinate Torres and install a new government. LOSES ATTEMPT - James R. Hoffa, once among the most powerful U.S. union leaders; faces op to an additional five years in federal prison following U.S. Supreme Court rejection today of an appeal from his 1964 pension fraud conviction.

Indian appointed to Alberta post EDMONTON (CP) - David George Greyeyes, a 56-year-old Cree, today became the first Indian to be appointed regional 'No! You Tarzam me TarzanI' Royal kidnap threat made LONDON (AP) - A telephoned threat to kidnap the eight-year-old Earl of St. Andrews, 12th in line of succession for the British throne, sent armed police to the family home in Buckinghamshire today. The Earl of St. Andrews is the eldest son of the Duke of Kent, cousin of Queen Elizabeth and 11th in line for the throne. The telephone call was received by a national newspaper Sunday.

U.S. court clears way for fight WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. Supreme Court granted a hearing today to heavyweight fighter Muhammad Ali on his claim that he was entitled to exemption from the draft as a religious conscientious objector. The court's action, announced in a brief order, clears the way for Ali's fight in March with Joe Frazier for the heavyweight boxing championship. Ali, also known as Cassius Clay, was convicted 3V4 years ago for refusing induction into the army. He claimed he was entitled to an exemption as a Muslim minister. His conviction carried a five-year sentence, and boxing officials stripped him of the title he had won from Sonny Liston. Had the court turned down Ali's appeal it would have been highly unlikely that the fight with Frazier would have been held. The bout, scheduled for New York City March 8, will be the richest in history. Ali made a fight comeback last October scoring a technical knockout over Jerry Quarry and continued with a victory in December over Oscar Bonavena. Quebec trials begin MONTREAL (CP) - All arrivals, including prospective jurors, were searched by police at the main doors of the Montreal courthouse today as preparations were made for the first in r. lengthy series of trials arising from Quebec's terrorist crisis.
