Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 - THE LCTHBRIDOE HERALD - Monday, January 11, 1971 .- Kidnapped ambassador, captives reported well MONTEVIDEO (Reuter) -Left-wing urban guerillas who kidnapped British Ambassador Geoffrey Jackson in Uruguay Friday broke their silence today by saying he is in "perfect health." The British embassy earlier reported that Jackson, who was senior British trade commissioner in Toronto for five years before coming to Montevideo in July, 1969, has a heart ailment and needs special medicine, The message from the Tupa-maros organization said two other foreign officials they have held captive for five months also are well. They are U.S. agriculture expert Claude Fly, 65, and Brazilian Consul Aloysio Dias Gomide, 41. The guerrillas assassinated an off-duty detective, Jose Lenadro Villalba, as he left a bar today, police reported, and left a note saying: "This is how an in- Astronauts start sheltered period CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (Reuter) - Astronauts Alan Shep-ard, Ed Mitchell and Stuart Roosa began today the most sheltered three weeks of their lives-a period of strict health precautions leading up to their flight to the moon Jan. 31. This will be followed by nine days in space and then 17 days in quarantine to ensure they 8 missing in collision of ship* FOLKESTONE, England (AP) -A Texaco natural gas tanker and a Peruvian freighter collided in thick English Channel fog early today, setting off an explosion that ripped the tanker in two and left eight seamen missing. Twenty-two crew members of the Texaco Caribbean were rescued. Two were taken to hospital for shock and exposure, while one had possible chest injuries. British, Dutch and Norwegian ships cruised slowly about the fogbound collision area, about nine miles of England's east coast, searching for the missing men. Overhead, a helicopter joined the hunt, The stern of the 13,604-ton Texaco Caribbean drifted free In the channel, kept afloat by watertight bulkheads. The coast guard said that the front portion apparently sank. The freighter, the 9,481-ton Paracas, was being towed by a German tug to Hamburg. The explosion that split the tanker echoed along 20 miles of coast from Dover to Dungeness. The coast guard said fears of oil pollution from the tanker were put to rest when it was established that she normally carried natural gas. She had unloaded a cargo of chemicals in Holland and was sailing in ballast for Trinidad. have not been infected by any unknown "moon bugs." Before flying back to the launch centre here, Mitchell said in Houston that he thought the new pre-flight restrictions were "a blasted nuisance." But he added: "We are buying a measure of added protection by this and we are all going to try to make it work." Under the "flight crew health stabilization program," the crew will be isolated from anyone not designated a "prime contact." The program was devised to prevent a recurrence of the Apollo 13 situation in which Ken Mattingly was replaced on the eve of the flight because he had been exposed to German measles. Separateair conditioning, complete with bacterial filters, had been installed in the crew quarters here and in other buildings which they use regularly. Outside the protected areas, which also include the astronauts' beach house, corridors will be cleared at their approach. The crew and their backup crew will wear surgical masks on their way to and from the handball court-just in case of airborne germs. At the same time, the 160 prime contacts have been asked to report immediately if they suffer any symptoms of illness, however mild. Crew and contacts already have undergone thorough medical examinations. These showed that Shepard, Roosa and Mitchell have natural immunity to German measles and small pox. The "prime contacts" include the astronauts' wives but not their children. Dr. Charles Berry, director of medical research and operations at Houston's Manned Spacecraft Centre, admitted that this was a hole in the program and that there was a risk that the wives could catch a disease from their children and pass it on to the astronauts. But he said it would have been almost impossible to bring all the children into the prime contact plan. former is paid." Several Tupa-rriaros opened fire with .45-cal-ibre pistols, and Villalba fell dead, the 11th policeman killed by the guerrillas since 1966. The guerilla communique came as Uruguayan authorities moved to give police and troops hunting for the 55-year-old Jackson sweeping new powers to search and arrest. The communique, left in a downtown bar, said all three men have been moved to "the people's prison." REPEAT EARLIER OFFER The guerrillas did not say anything about releasing Jackson, nor did it give any further details of the "prison" where they are holding him, Fly and Dias Gomide. But they withdrew an earlier offer to free Fly, in exchange for the publication in local newspapers of a Tupamaro political manifesto. Shortly before the guerrilla communique was found, President Jorge P a c h e c o Areco asked Congress to widen the powers of troops and police. More than 12,000 security men  have been searching without' success for the ambassador since a group of Tupamaros rammed his limousine in a central Montevideo street, clubbed his guards unconscious and kidnapped him. APPROVAL CERTAIN j Government and congressional sources said a 10-man commission, which represents Congress during the current summer recess was certain to approve the president's request, likely to be given today. The measure would suspend for 90 days a key article of the constitution and empower police to raid private houses and hold arrested suspects without bringing them before a court. Congress agreed to a similar government request Aug. 11, one day after the Tupamaros murdered kidnapped U.S. official Daniel Mitrione. The Tupamaros executed Mitrione, an adviser to the Uruguayan police, because the government turned down their demands for the release of all political prisoners in exchange for his life and that of Dias Gomide and Fly, who w�re kidnapped July 31 and Aug. 7. Although the Tupamaros have still not presented any ransom demands for Jackson, the Uruguayan government has stressed that it will not change its declared policy of not negotl ating with the guerrillas in any way. The ambassador's wife, Patricia, left here by air for London to stay with her 26-year-old son-Embassy officials said she was obeying her husband's in structions to go horns if he was kidnapped. Bucher, prisoners still in detention RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuter) - Kidnapped Swiss Ambassador Giovannia Enrico Bucher and 70 political prisoners to be ransomed for him were still in detention today, more than 48 hours after the Brazilian government agreed to the swap. There was no official explanation of the delay in assembling the prisoners at Rio de Janeiro's Galeao airport, where a Boeing 707 jet is waiting to fly them out of the country.

Thus far the guerrillas have listed no demands for the release of the ambassador other than asking the government to negotiate. Elimination of property tax for education is requested Hospital treatment of patient blasted MONTREAL (CP) - Judge Claude Wagner Sunday blasted a hospital in nearby Cartierville for "inhuman" treatment of an auto-theft suspect who appeared in court with multiple fractures, unable to talk and barely able to stand. The judge said in a telephone Two killed in Alberta accidents By THE CANADIAN PRESS At least two persons died accidentally in Alberta this weekend. Edna June Kelly, 66, of Calgary died in a fire in her Calgary home. John Oliver BlancHard, 75, of Drutnheller died in a traffic accident.

I saw him in the witness box slumped over and unable eves to mumble anything." THREATENS HOSPITAL The judge threatened the hospital Saturday with contempt of court unless it re-admitted Martel. The suspect was admitted to hospital Thursday after an accident involving a stolen car. Police asked that he be kept under guard. Hospital officials decided to release Martel Thursday evening, but when police arrived, they found the suspect was suffering from fractures in the jaw, arm and leg. They asked for additional x-rays, which revealed a broken ater-wum as well. EDMONTON (CP) - The Alberta Federation of Labor in its annual wide - rapging brief to the provincial cabinet today called for the elimination of property taxation as the means of financing education. The federation said education should be financed through income taxation and the education department should institute a public relations campaign to enhance the public's attitude toward technical school training. "Too many young people are graduating from universities with degrees to find there is no employment available for them." In supporting day care centres, the federation urged the government to pass legislation incorporating day care as an "integral" part of the education system. Separate classrooms should be established in existing schools to allow handicapped children to be educated while remaining at home with their own families, the federation said. 18-PAGE BRIEF The 18-page brief also ex-pressed the federations con cerns on housing, medical care, pollution, automobile in- Sources in the capital of Brasilia said safe conduct documents were still being prepared for the 70 prisoners, who were scattered in five cities.

ALGIERS (AP) - The state-run Radio Algiers said today that the 70 Brazilian political prisoners scheduled to be released in return for kidnapped Swiss Ambassador Giovani Enrico Bucher are due in Algiers today. No further details were given, except that two children would accompany the prisoners. C N( >l\lf II >l l\| I l/\l I , , ( )l l| ; .

While commending the province on its moves to set up machinery to. fulfill its responsibilities in the housing field, the federation urged the government to "demonstrate more! initiative" and leadership in land assembly programs. With medical care an established fact, the government should move to extend the legislation to cover dental care, prescription drugs, artificial limbs and appliances, home nursing care and nursing homes, the labor group said. However, the federation said it opposed the premium system of financing the Alberta Medical Care Plan and the program should be made available through taxation. The federation said the standards set out for industry in government measures - the establishment of an environmental conservation authority Hearing disrupted by Nazis VANCOUVER (CP) - Five men wearing swastika armbands briefly disrupted a Vancouver hearing Sunday of the Parliamentary Committee on the Constitution. They screamed and shouted for "freedom of speech for the National Socialist White People's Party of Canada." Standing as a body among some 340 seated spectators, the five then gave a "Heil Hitler" salute and marched from the room. Members of the audience booed and jeered the demonstrators and one man, articling law student Joel Kerbel, heatedly called them "pigs." The leader of the group Identified himself to reporters as John Beattie of Toronto. He said he was leader of the National Socialist White People's Party, and that his four followers were all from Vancouver. None of the four would identify themselves. The disruption came In the middle of a submission by Alex MacDonald, New Democratic member of the B.C. legislature for Vancouver East, who was saying that such rights as freedom of speech should be guaranteed by the constitution. When the Beattie group began shouting, Mr. MacDonald aid, "I believe in freedom of speech, but I believe those Nazis should be thrown out." - are totally inadequate in the fight against pollution. "Another area of concern Is that the companies that were charged with a violation of provincial standards were only assessed token fines - we refer specifically to oil spills over the last year." Pleased at the establishment of the authority, the federation said it was "disappointed" no representative from organized labor was named to the body because such a representative could make a "valuable contribution." AUTO INSURANCE The federation said it did not agree with a legislative com mittee's report last year that automobile insurance should remain in the hands of private companies. "A publicly operated automobile compensation board based on the 'no fault* principle should be established." , The labor federation urged the government to increase the minimum wage to $2 an hour from the present $1.55. Resources being used to fight poverty and not being used effectively and a single government agency should be established to deal with all different forms of social assistance. Proposed government plans to sub - contract some social services to private agencies will "only create further fragmentation in an already outdated system" and the federation is "totally opposed" to the social development department's policy of encouraging private enterprise in programs which are the government's responsibility. Sections should be Incorporated in the Alberta Human Rights Act to end discrimination because of age and sex and the government should study the situation which sees people discriminated against in employment because of a trade union background, credit rating, compensation record, or political affiliation. The federation also asked the province to "clearly define" its role respecting native people and the government should move to introduce legislation, based on that of Ontario, which would establish improved tenant > landlord relationships. 1 A BELOW A * ZERO AT Weather and road report 12:00, 'NOON SUNRISE TUESDAY 8:25 SUNSET 4:54 II L Pre Lethbridge...... -8-26 Waterton....... -20-26 Pincher Creek .... -19-30 Medicine Hat .... -8-19 Vermilion....... -19-27 Edmonton.......-18 -26 Jasper ..-.......-12 -26 Banff.......... -12-28 Coronation...... -16-27 Calgary........ -16-31 High Level...... -24-51 Peace River.....-23-45 Grande Prairie ... -23-45 Rocky Mtn.
