Greene plans lo stay in politics, and is looking forward to a federal election in June. "I still have something to give this country and I intend to give Mr. Greene, fed- eral minister of energy, mines and resources, said in an in- terview this week. "Govern- J. J. GREENE Slays In Politics ment and politics are my bag." Mr. Greene, 51, has no in- side dope on the election dale, but points out that June was good for the Liberals in 1968, "so why Only a few close Wends were aware that Mr. Greene checked in two weeks ago at Toronto's Lyndhurst Lodge Hospital for paraplegics and quadraplegics. After fainting last Septem- ber in the shower of a Tokyo hotel where he was attending a conference on atomic en- ergy, Mr. Green was a patient in a hospital there before being transferred to the Victo- ria Hospital in London, Ont. and Ihen to Lyndhurst Iwo weeks ago. PARTIALLY PARALYZED Mr. Greene, exhibiting all his old fire and snap, bragged a little about the weights he lifts with his partially para- lyzed left leg two hours a day and the one-hour session daily in a 93-degree pool to restore the use of his left arm, which is in a sling. "The maximum for the leg vary from five to 30 pounds depending on the 90 times. My record at the moment is 50." His doctors tell him there will be complete recovery and lhat only his left hand will be "a bit stiff." Mr. Greene says they have assured him they will let him know when they have done all they can. This could be in four to six weeks. Mr. Greene grew pensive as he spoke of his fellow pa- tients, mostly youngsters hurt in car accidents. "Lyndhurst makes you feel rather he said. "You see the kids and you feel, 'well, I've had a good run and I haven't missed much in life.' His Ottawa staff has an- swered more than letters and has hundreds more to handle as good wishes con- tinue to pour in. Mr. Greene keeps in touch with his portfolio, which is being handled by Manpower Minister Otto Lang. Israel tvarns Lebanon BEIRUT (Reuter) Israel has warned the Lebanese gov- ernment that it will occupy part of southern Lebanon unless Pal- estinian Arab guerrilla activity in the region is halted, Le- banese newspapers reported today. Two newspapers published by the same company, the Arabic language Al Nahar and the French L'Orient-Le Jour, splashed on their front pages what they described as secret documents relating to the cur- tent tension on the Lebanese-Is- raeli border. There was no immediate offi- cial comment on the authentic- ity of the two documents, which were said to be Israel's official warning to Lebanon and a letter from President Suleiman Fran- jieh to all Arab beads of state. Spanish students battle police MADRID (AP) Students battled police for the second straight day today at Madrid University. The university was virtually shut down by the viol- ence. The fighting broke out as medical students attempted a protest demonstration over their suspension in a dispute over ac- ademic rules. Many medical students have been boycotting classes since November. A police source blamed an es- timated 200 Communists for leading the disturbances at the university's three campuses with more than students, but students denied the charge.

He purchased 10 animals in ]06? for as breeding stock, but no sales took place until 19C9.
