Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 20, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, January 20, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Arab money sending Agnew down road to easy street NEW YORK (AP) Former vice-president Spiro Agnew's rent estate partner says Agnew is on his way to becoming a multi-millionaire by bringing foreign money, 'mostly Arab, into the business. Two deals in Kentucky made with Kuwait and Saudi Arabian money were cited by Walter Dilbeck, an Evans- ville, Ind., real estate dealer, as evidence of the help Agnew is bringing to the Dilbeck em- pire. Dilbeck, interviewed in Pa- rade magazine, said he would not say which one of his three landholding cor- and Associates, Sunflower Corp. and Walter J. Dilbeck was working for because Agnew "likes to keep his name out of deals." He said he and Agnew were brought together by John Beck, another Dilbeck partner who also is a Hollywood producer planning a film bas- ed on Dilbeck's Second World War exploits. Dilbeck said the deal with Agnew "called for me to pay him a year for four years, plus one-third of the profits for the first year, and half of the profits of the other three. "After four years Ted Agnew is free to go on his he said. "By that time he should be a multi- millionaire." Saying Agnew had many valuable contacts here and abroad, Dilbeck noted that while in office he handled Arab contacts for former president Richard Nixon while Nixon was handling Israeli contacts. "It was Ted he added, "who flew, to the Mid- dle East and got investors in Kuwait to put up million in capital to buy the land" for a resort city project on acres near Lake Barclay in Kentucky. Dilbeck said Agnew raised Saudi Arabian and Japanese money to buy the Mount Vic- tory Coal Co. in Kentucky. Youths' exchange offer might have backfired MOSCOW (AP) Two Western youths have not been seen since they went to the Soviet interior ministry plann- ing to offer to exchange themselves for an ailing Jew in jail, a Jewish source said Saturday. Gilad Freud, 20, of Brooklyn, N.Y., and Elie Yosef, 19, of London, walked into the ministry Friday after- noon, said Leonid Tsipin, a Moscow Jewish activist who accompanied the pair. Tsipin said the two planned to offer to serve the eight-year prison sentence of Dr. Mikhail Shtern, a Ukrainian doctor convicted of bribe-taking and swindling. Jewish activists claim Ehtern was prosecuted because he had applied to emi- grate to Israel. Freud and Yosef were inter- viewed for over an hour by a police colonel and, then es- corted to a waiting car by six men in plainclothes. "That's the last I saw of Tsipin said. The two bearded youths, both Jews, said they had been upset by the outcome of Shtern's trial. "Our con- science will not permit us to return to the West without intervening on behalf of Dr. they said in a statement to Western reporters before entering the ministry building.

Phone 328-1101 Army leader wants former secret police banished LISBON (Reuter) A lead- ing member of the Armed Forces Movement which effectively controls Portugal has suggested that im- prisoned former secret police be banished to "Honduras, Nicaragua or a place like that.' Brig. Otelo Saraiva de Car- valho, leader of last April's coup and now deputy com- mander of the military securi- ty force, said they should be obliged to stay outside Por- tugal for five or 10 years. In a book of interviews pub- lished Sunday, the brigadier said it is difficult to decide what to do with the secret po- lice, who have been detained without trial since the April coup. "The best solution would really be to put all these peo- ple on a boat, take them to Honduras, Nicaragua or a place like that, and forbid them to return to the country for five or 10 years." Obscenity charged in Italy FERRARA (AP) L'Espresso, one of Italy's most influential weekly magazines, was banned throughout the country Saturday on charges of obscenity fil- ed by a judge in this central Italian town. It carried on the cover a photograph of a crucified, nude preg- nant woman to il- lustrate an article sup- porting a campaign to legalize abortion in Italy. The magazine had been on sale since Wednesday. Four lawyers in nearby Vicenza accused the magazine of of- fending the Roman Catholic religion. The prosecutor's office said a magistrate was con- sidering the accusation. It is not unusual in Italy for judges to file charges in obscenity cases. Contract ratified CHICAGO pilots who work for United Airlines ratified a new 31- month contract Saturday, averting a strike threatened for next month, officials said. William Arsenault, presi- dent of the United Master Ex- ecutive Council of the Airline Pilots Association, said the pay increase in the new contract would "surpass the industry-wide average.'1 Come celebrate the 19.75 Centennial with the Calgary Inn.
