Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 18, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE'UETHBRIDGE HERALD Siturdiy, January 11, 1975 Interpreting the News Agents may kidnap suspects NEW YORK (CP) In a potentially far-reaching but little-publicized decision, a high U.S. court ruled recently that American narcotics agents can enter a foreign country, kidnap a foreign suspect and bring him back to the United States for he is not tor- tured or terrorized in the process. The case involved an Argen- tine pilot named Julio Juven- tino Lujan, who claimed that American agents lured him from Argentina to Bolivia, arranged for Bolivian police to seize him and have him placed aboard a plane to New INCOME TAX SERVICE Income tax forms have become a lot more complicated than they used to be.

Lujan, who now is in jail here awaiting trial for an alleged heroin-smuggling con- spiracy, petitioned the U.S. Court of Appeals to release him on grounds that his kid- napping violated the due process of law. The court, in a decision written by Chief Justice Irv- ing Kaufman, turned him down. The court ruled that a jailed defendant could not gain his freedom even though the nar- cotics agents had kidnapped him in South America and brought him back to the U.S. for trial. Had torture or terror been involved in Lujan's kidnap- ping, the court said, that would have been another matter. But Kaufman noted that Lujan had charged "no deprivation greater than that, which he would have endured YAMAHA ORGANS New and Used COLLEGE MALL Phone 328-3694 through lawful extradition." The question of torture or terrorism referred to a case last year in which U.S. federal authorities were ordered to free another narcotics defen- dant, Francisco Toscanino, if he proved that he had been brought to the U.S. for trial after being kidnapped, terro- rized and tortured in South America, as he alleged. Kaufman recalled that the "cruel, inhuman and out- rageous treatment allegedly suffered" by Toscanino, a Uruguayan, demanded his release if he could prove it at a subsequent hearing. "But the same cannot be said of said the judge. "Lacking from Lujan's peti- tion is any allegation of that complex of shocking governmental conduct suf- ficient to convert'an abduction which is simply illegal into one which sinks to a violation of due process. Toscanino is serving a 20- year prison sentence in the U.S. on a heroin conviction, but he has not yet had a hear- ing on his torture and terrorism charges which could lead to his release. Army tank's days may be numbered OTTAWA (CP) Defence Minister James Richardson said Friday the government has yet to make a decision on whether to retain the tank in the Canadian Forces. The minister said a decision on whether to retain the tank or dispense with it as foretold in the 1970 defence white paper, will not be taken in the immediate future. He was answering questions at the annual meeting of the Canadian Defence Associations, a group con- taining 13 reserve and militia groups, which long has objected to the idea of a tankless armed force. The questioner was retired Maj.-Gen. Bruce MacDonald, a former tank officer, who said that the large, ungainly, smelly, expensive monster is a neces- sary piece of equipment without which armed forces are "terribly vulnerable" in war. He said the tank is necessary for training and com- bat. There could be no coherent capability of a land force without tanks. The white paper said it would dispense with the tank to make all Canadian equipment, whether in Europe or Canada, compatible. The forces would look for a vehi- cle that was air transportable. At present Canada has operational Centurion tanks with its European forces. The government has extend- ed their life until 1976 while it reconsider whether to maintain the tank role. While saying that no decision has been made yet, Mr. Richardson expressed nothing to show that he has changed from previous statements that were not par- ticularly favorable to retention. He noted that he had visited the Middle East recent- ly and had talked to defence ministers about the 1973 war when thousands of tanks were destroyed. He said the tank is an aggressive vehicle. But he had been told in the past that a tank is the best anti-tank weapon available. fn his talks he had discovered that the Israelis lost 450 tanks before any Egyptian tanks even crossed the Suez canal. A sergeant holding a wire-guided missile had alone destroyed 23 tanks. He said there must be consideration whether the defensive techniques have caught up with aggressive techniques. The government had a number of options before it. One of them was to bring up to date the Centurion, as the Israelis have done with considerable success.

Alberta D apparently the main reason for this, say nutrition studies released Friday by the federal health department. Eskimo diets in all age groups often lacked vitamin C. Bleeding gums, suggestive of scurvy, were common, the studies say. Moreover, many Eskimos an Indians also lacked vitamin A, essential in the formation and maintenance of healthy skin and membranes. The health department said in a news release that instruc- tions have been given to provide multiple vitamin and mineral tablets to all persons served by Indian health and northern health programs, un- less it is evident the tablets are unnecessary. The health department re- leased 12 individual reports, one for each province and one each for Indian and Eskimo populations. The reports are based on a 1970 survey of more than people. A preliminary report on the so-called Nutrition Canada survey, published in late .1973, said the primary nutritional problem facing all Canadians is obesity, and that more than 50 per cent of the population is overweight. The reports published Fri- day indicate few differences in nutritional status from one province to another. High bidder Oakville businessman Ian Hardcastle paid to keep a Victoria Cross in Canada. He was high bidder at an auction in Toronto for a military award presented to Pvt. C. Richardson during the Indian Mutiny in 1857-58. The purchase also included the Indian'Mutiny medal. The holder of the Common- wealth's highest military decoration died in London, Ont. in 1922. Expropriated entitled to help OTTAWA (CP) Persons whose lands were ex- propriated for additions to the Vancouver International Air- port have a right to govern- ment assistance in finding alternative living ac- commodations, Federal Court Judge Raymond Decary ruled this week. "As per the evidence, the (federal) assistance was not the judge said in refusing an application by the transport department to take physical possession of six homes in the Vancouver area the government says are needed for the airport exten- sion. He also was critical of justice department lawyers who objected to evidence be- ng given of expropriation jractices being carried out by ;he government in acquiring and for new airports in Toronto and Montreal. He said the evidence should ia've been heard "in order to eave no doubt as to any possi- bility of difference of .treat- ment of the respondents and .he parties expropriated at Mirabel and Pickering." The government took six Sea Island home owners to court after they refused to move from their houses which lad been expropriated in March, 1973. An offer of compensation was made and accepted and each owner was allowed to oc- cupy his premises up to the end of August, 1973. A further notice in July, 1973, said the owners could re- main in the homes until July 31 1974.
