Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THI LETHMIDOI HERALD Mnwry 24, If71 THREE MONTHS IN JAIL FOR REFUSING TO CUT HAIR Airman Ned Posey, Lead, S.D., who refused an Air Force order to hove his hair cut, was sentenced by a court marital in Saigon to three months in jail, a fine of and reduction to the lowest rank in the Air Force. Posey contended the Air Force regulations were uncon- stitutional. Small profit for VW firm WOLFSBURG, West Ger- many (AP) Volkswagen end- ed 1971 with a small profit de- spite over-all losses in car sales, a company spokesman reported Friday. The spokesman was correct- ing a statement by Volkswagen Chairman Rudolf Leiding in a television interview implying that West Germany's largest auto company finished in the red for 1971. "These red figures only refer to our auto sales and not to other activities such as scrap the spokesman said. "Earnings we had on these activities balanced the losses on car sales and we actually closed 1971 with a small profit." He did not give the exact profit figure. In 1970, Volkswagen reported an a f t e r-tax profit of about million, under the old par- ity of 3.66 marks to the U.S. dollar. In a German television inter- view, Leiding said Volkswagen expected declining U.S. and West German sales in 1972-73. Balancing these losses, he said, would be expected sales gains in countries such as Britain and France. FEW WORK LONDON (AP) Fewer than 37 per cent of unversity gradu- ates in Britain took jobs after earning their degrees in 1970, a government survey showed. About 40 per cent continued studies and the rest were still out of work six months after graduation. Biliaris fear for their lives MIRPUR (Reuter) People in tliis non-Bengali sub- urb, now a beleaguered com- munity in Baijgladesh, fear they will be killed if the Indian army leaves the area. They claim that many have been killed already. A questionnaire they are car- Endicott's resignation accepted TORONTO (CP) The Cam- dian Peace Congress has ac. cepted the resignation of Rev. James Endicott, 73, chairman and founder of the group, spokesman said today. Hans Blumenfeld said a meet- ing of 10 members of the execu Hve "regretfully" accepted Thursday the resignation of Mr. Endicott who launched the or- ganization 23 years ago. Resignations also were ac- cepted from Mr. Endicott's wife Ella, congress secretary-treas- urer, and Mrs. Eva Sanderson, vice-chairman. In his letter of resignation, the former United Church mis- sionary said he was concerned about Russian-oriented anli- Chraese propaganda emanating from the congress "which in my judgment if quite false." Mr. Endicott said he does not believe the congress is domi- nated by members of the Com- munist Party of Canada, but he said there are seven or eight Communists on the 19-membcr board. Mrs. Sanderson, a member of the congress since it was founded, said she quit because people from outside the con- gress "could come in and put so much pressure on the chair- man." 400 OFFICIALS OUT ZAGREB, Yugoslavia (Reu- ter) Four hundred officials have resigned or been dismissed from their posts in the Com- munist party, government and parliament in Croatia in the last six weeks, it was disclosed here Thursday. The resignations and dismissals followed President Tito's sharp criticism early last month of the growth of national- ism and separatism in Croatia. c u 1 a t i n g among themselves, asking if they want to be "repa- triated" to India or Pakistan, reflects the concern among these non-Bengalis that they have no future in Bangladesh and nil! be killed if the Indians are withdrawn. Bangladesh police, mostly for- mer members of the Muktl Bah- ini guerrilla forces, last week imposed a curfew in parts of Mirpur, which is about seven miles from Dacca. They claim that the half million people still living there hold weapons given to them last year by the Pakistan army, with which they are accused of sympathizing. SHOTS HEARD Shots could be heard from the curfew areas but police and res- idents say the firing was only in the air. The police said it was to persuade the non-Bengalis, known collectively as Biliaris because many came from Bihar in India, to surrender their arms. As I drove into Mirpur, the Biharis crowded around my car displaying placards saying "Re- patriate Us or Shoot "Quick and Total Annihilation or and "Supply Us Arc Hungry." A 60-year-old high school teacher, who came to East Pak- istan at the time of the partition of British Indian in 1947, said "we have lost confidence." "We want to be evacuated to any part of the ately. We are in great danger. Every day people are being captured and killed." The teacher, who gave his name but asked not to be will surely be listed and some people wanted to go to Pakistan and others to India, depending on where their relatives were. He went on: "Let the Red Cross take us the desert, the jungle, the forest, anywhere. Let them .ake us even without our clothes. Other- wise, within be dead." fortnight we will Students pass goal EDMONTON (CP) Student dropoute at the University of Alberta doubled this fall com- pared with last year, says reg- istrar A. D. Cairns. Enrolment declined to by Dec. 1, 482 less than the high recorded earlier in the fall, he said. About 200 had dropped out over the same period last fall. II part-time student dropouts were added to the total, more than would have stopped attending classes during the fall session, he said. The economic situation seems to be the primary rea- son why students drop out. They can't get student finance grants and the prospect of incurring loan indebtedness frightens some of their." A. J. B. Hough, director of student counselling services, said results of a study on causes for the higher dropout rate should be available some lime in February. Mackenzie banks crumble Pipeline plan hits problem OTTAWA (CP) Some r search reports so far are pess mistic about the possibility building an oil pipeline down th Mackenzie River valley from the Arctic to Edmonton. Dr. R. M. Isaacs of the Oeo- logical Survey of Canada, a arm of the federal energy d partment, says in a preliminary report based on an oo-tbe-spo survey that the banks of th Mackenzie, at least in s o m areas, frequently crumble int the river. "It is a very serious prob le Dr. Isaacs said here in an interview. Some Canadian cabinet min istere have been pushing for Mackenzie Valley pipeline one means to forestall an Alas ka route which would requir oil tanker shipments from south em Alaska along the Britis Columbia coast to Washingto State.

GETS THEM TALKING MONTREAL (CP) Pierre 'ascau, moderator of CBC Ha- llo's national open-line Cross Country Checkup, says "if any noject could be a major factor n achieving any kind of Cana- tian it would be his how. "It's frequently said that Canadian people don't get along because they don't talk to each other. Checkup has got them alking." dustry for a look at the possibil- ities of inland and offshore Arc- He pipelines. The energy department has four or five teams working on the problem. Dr. Isaacs said he is looking at the possibilities of road and airfield construction as well as pipelines. "The design of a pipeline nat- urally will be up to the engi- he said. "We will try to predict what mil happen when the engneers pick a route. No one has really found any kind of solution yet." Dr. Isaacs began hs survey summer on the Mackenzie between Sans Sault Rapids and Payne Creek. He said the survey is sched- uled to continue until 1974 at least. His paper outlining what has been done so far refers to "fail- ure of the the Mac kenzie. Even without erosion caused by forest fires, the banks made a "downslope creep." Where erosion had oc- curred, the creep was faster. Another team comprising P. J. Kurfurst and J. A. Heginbot- torn from the Geological Sur- vey last summer investigate landslides along the Mackenzie Great Bear and Brackett rivers in the Fort Norman area. Results of this survey have not yet been made pubic but the team paid close attention to what has happened to the Sec- ond World War Canol pipeline in the Fort Norman region.
