Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Crisis effects linger By WILLIAM F. NICHOLSON PORT OP SPAIN (AP) -Prime Minister Eric Williams of Trinidad, who won a 2-to-l victory in 1966 voting, is facing a serious challenge in this year's elections. His government was nearly toppled during a crisis last April. The aftermath of the rioting and mutiny which took place then is still being felt. A court martial of 13 officers land men of the Trinidad and Tobago Regiment, the two-island country's 750-man army, continues after six weeks of prosecution testimony. Some SO other soldiers await trial. Prosecution testimony has linked the mutineers with Black Power leaders in an alleged abortive plan to stage a revolution during the rioting last spring. The alleged plot failed only because the coast guard remained loyal and shelled the mutineers' camp to prevent them from entering Port of Spain. Four persons died. The week of disorders began with the government's decree of a tough state of emergency on April 21 and a rampage through the downtown shopping area a few hours later by rock-throwing youths. The mutiny erupted the same day. RELEASED LEADERS The government finally lifted the state of emergency two months ago and released half a dozen Black Power leaders jailed since April. They have staved out of the limelight since. More moderate black nationalist leaders, such as Lloyd Best, a lecturer in economics at the University of West Indies campus in Trinidad, and Dr. Jame Millette, an English history lecturer at the university, actively oppose the Williams government but neither man was involved in the soring trouble. "I'm certain the old order isn't going to last through 1971," says Best. He heads Tapia, a black-nationalist organization which publishes a widely-read monthly. Williams's five-year term has expired and he must call new elections within six weeks after the present Parliament ends its business. Elections probably will be in the spring. A strong coalition including those disenchanted with the Williams government and hitherto apathetic East Indian voters could end his 15-year stay in Whitehall, the country's government bouse. STILL HAS ALLY However. Williams still has a powerful East Indian ally in Bhadase Saga Maraj, 52, a high-caste religious leader of the Hindu population. More than 75 per cent of (he Indians in Trinidad and Tobago are Hindus. If Mara] can persuade his fol lowers to vote for Williams, the diminutive prime minister will be almost assured of five more years in office. Williams' opponents say he still hasn't solved what they feel is the underlying cause of the country's unrest. "The biggest problem is the domination of the economy by the government and outsiders," says Best, referring to oil production and sugar harvesting as well as smaller business opera tions ki the country. "Our task will be to give the people economic independence. The country doesn't want the old boys any more." Wayne case thrown out SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A complaint against John Wayne involving an alleged ob-soeuity-spiced clash between the actor and Vietnam war protestors waving Viet Cong flags won't be prosecuted by the district attorney. i "I think the complaint was a put-on," District Attorney John | Price said here. Wayne h denied the incident happened. Gregory Kirkwood, 22, of Sacramento filed a complaint with i the police seeking to have Wayne charged w.iii disturbing the peace during an inaugural gala Monday night for reelected Gov. Ronald Reagan. Kirkwood said the 63-year-old Wayne, star of war films dating back decades and a strong defender of American Vietnam policy, spotted Viet Cong flags Kirkwood and friends were waving outside the gala. Wayne shouted "What the . . .  is that!" and had to be restrained from charging the demonstrators, Kirkwood said. TIP TOPS JANUARY SALE > : W 1 < =w 1*t J * I 1* SHIRTS SAVE 1/3 SPORT SHIRTS.
