Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 21, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Milestone of frustration PARIS (AP) - The Paris peace talks reach a milestone of frustration Thursday. When the black limousines ease up to the grim international conference building near the Arc de Triomphe the participants will be gathering for session No. 100. No fanfare will mark the day. There will be only official gloom and mutual recrimination, unless an unexpected initiative develops in efforts to end the Vietnam war. Gone is the euphoria of more than two years ago, hopes that talks among delegates from the United States, South Vietnam, North Vietnam and the Viet Cong might bring a quick end to the war. President Lyndon B. Johnson spoke then of an expectation of "prompt, productive, serious1 and intens i v e negotiations in an atmosphere that is conducive to progress." Anything but has happened since. Today negotiators still lament that "the only agreement reached has been on the table shapes and arrangements." NATO worker gets 20 years PARIS (Reuter) - A 41-year-old Frenchman who worked in the secret document section of NATO headquarters in Brussels was sentenced Wednesday to 20 years imprisonment for spying. Francis Roussilhe was sentenced by the French state security court here after admitting he passed confidential documents to Romanian agents. Roussilhe had access to documents ranging in classification from confidential to top secret, The former NATO archivist was arrested in Brussels in August, 1969, and expelled from Belgium so that he could face trial in France, which is no longer a member of NATO's military set-up. The security court judge said Roussilhe passed 12,000 pages of documents to Romanian agents from 1963 to 1969, and was paid $18,000 in gold. Wartime Nazi doctor sought TEL AVIV (Reuter) - An Israeli organization for action against Nazi war crimes offered a $50,000 reward Wednesday to any person who could identify and arrest Josef Mengele.

Announcing the reward at a news conference, Tuvia Fried- man, director of the Haifa documentation centre on the Nazi holocaust, read a letter he had received from the office of West German President Gustav Hei-nemaim last November. The letter, signed by the president's secretary, said Mengele had taken Paraguayan citizenship and the Paraguayan authorities had refused to extradite him to West Germany or bring him to trial.

It was learned that Transportation Secretary John A. Volpe, who criticized Rear-Admiral William B. Ellis publicly Dec. 21, had signed a glowing Legion of Merit citation received by Ellis Sept. 18. Ellis, 56, was praised in the citation for exceptionally meri- torious conduct as commander of the 1st Coast Guard District during the previous two years. Between "sound judgment" and a "serious error in judgment," President Nixon and public opinion were aroused by disclosure that Lithuanian seaman S&manos Kudirka had been beaten and dragged by Russian sailors from a U.S. Coast Guard cutter to a Soviet ship off .Martha's Vineyard, Mass., Nov. 23, After a Coast Guard inquiry, it was announced that Ellis and his chief of staff, Capt.

(CP) - AI Santa Monica, Calif., woman who bought 945,000 worth of flight insurance at Dorval Airport prior to boarding a doomed Air Canada jetliner July 5 also was carrying $25,000 cash in her luggage, it was learned at an inquest Wednesday. The woman was identified as Janine Chapdelaine, who was en route to Los Angeles aboard Flight 621, outbound from Montreal with a short stop at Toronto international Airport. The DC-8-63 passenger jet crashed in a farmer's field north of the Toronto airport after an aborted landing attempt, killing all 109 aboard. Inspector Jack FcUerton of the Ontario Provincial Police told the crash inquest the money was found the day after the air disaster by OPP officers sifting through the wreckage. Insp. FuUerton, said the cash was in the bottom of a cosmetic bag under a layer of tissue paper. The money was eventually turned over to the Crown attorney's office. The OPP inspector told the five-man coroner's jury the $25,000 in Canadian currency was the largest single amount recovered from among possessions of the crash victims. He said the cosmetic case carried no identification when it was discovered. Two sets of safety deposit box keys in the case led to identification of Mrs Chapdelaine. Mrs. Chapdelaine was named by Air Canada officials as the owner of the cash in interviews that followed a noon adjournment of the inquest. She was one of three persons who took out insurance from the airport machines and then boarded Flight 621. The other two, John McTaig of North Vancouver, B.C., and Istvan Simon of North Hollywood, Calif., bought $150,000 and $105,000 Identify victim of car crash EDMONTON (CP) - 01 g a Kruger, 50, of Edmonton has been identified as the victim of a two - car collision west of the city. Police said Mrs. Kruger was a passenger in a car that was struck by another car at a high' way intersection. OWNER OCCUPIED Forty-nine per cent of houses in England and Wales were owner-occupied in 1969 compared to only 29 per cent in 1950, worth of insurance, respectively. Fred Smith, Air Canada planes manager, testified that a bank account has been set up for unclaimed money that was found in the debris of the aircraft. Interviewed later, Mr. Smith declined to say how much money was in the account. Much of Wednesday's evidence centres on identification of the passengers through clo-thing, fingerprints, dentures, jewelry and personal papers. A young man was identified through a cowboy shirt he was wealing, the body of a nun by her habit and cross, and a teen-aged boy through the ornamental belt buckle. Dr. James Purves, president of the recently-formed Canadian Society for Forensic Odontology, told the inquest that 44 of the crash victims were identified through dental evidence, Dr. Purves recommended that up-to-date dental records be kept on all crew members as well as finger-prints to make identification of crash victims easier. CONFIOt N Iiai i v Y< m ii �:� , cBarbara �Brent Student job prospects to be aired REGINA (CP) - A conference to discuss student summer employment and services for transient youth will be held in Ottawa in February, Reuben Baetz, executive director of the Canadian Council on Social Development, announced here. The national three-day conference of about 175 interested persons and agencies is to meet with federal officials in an attempt to have their say about youth programs before federal government' plans have jelled for the summer. Mr. Baetz told delegates to the conference of Community Funds and Councils of Canada that local united funds and social planning councils have been among the most vocal' of the agencies pressing for such a conference. "We do not question the prerogative of the federal government to make final decisions on the degree and extent of its participation in services to transient youth and student employment opportunities," 'he said. "However, we are convinced that priv consultation with an adequate representative group of provincial and municipal officials, non-government bodies and, of course, the youth them-selves, will immeasurably strengthen and facilitate the implementation of any federal plans." Last week in a Toronto speech, Mr. Baetz called for more consultation between the federal government and groups interested in youth and said his council had urged Prime Minister Trudeau to convene a meeting. Mr. Baetz warned that there was "far too much of an aura of secrecy surrounding federal plans' for student projects next summer." He said student unemployment is reaching "explosive proportions." Educate for enterprise urges chamber EDMONTON (CP) - The Edmonton Chamber of Commerce will seek changes in the school system that will give students a better understanding of the free enterprise system. There is a trend towards irrelevancy in education programs, incoming president E. Keith Cummings told the 81st annual meeting, and the chamber is particularly concerned about Uie emphasis in teaching on the socialistic approaches. "It is our intention to work with the Alberta Chamber of Commerce and educators . . . to improve the economic efficiency of our educational system and to press for changes in curricula so that students ... will have an understanding of Canada's democratic free enterprise system." Mr. Cumming said the chamber will also give priority to specific human resource development projects that can be implemented by the free enterprise system and examine how more natural resources may be processed in Alberta.
