Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-24,Lethbridge, Alberta Nixon’S twelve crises ■ ■. Cambodia and the ^bums* Military success, calamity at home Eighth is A series Nixon’s eighth cnsis-an intense wave *f violence and polarization that swept the country - was precipitated by his decision on April 27,197Q, to send American soldiers to search out and destroy Communist sanctuaries inside Cambodia. While more than 50,000 troops, half of them American, poured into Cambodia in eight separate thrusts, violent shockwaves reverberated throughout the country. Militarily, the operation seemed to be successful. By the end of the first week, the allies had captured tons of rice, weapons and ammunition, as Communist troops dispersed into hills and jungles. One U S c^ration captured enough rice to feed 15 Communist battalions for halt a year. Despite Nixon's assurance to tbe country that tbe Cambodian acticm was “not an invasion’* and that he was not seeking to widen the war, domestic reaction was swift and violent. Campuses across the nation erupted in turbulence. On May 4, a confrontation between 100 National Guarttsmen and around 600 students at Kent State University ended in the death of four young people when the guardimen fired a volley into a group of the anti-war demonstrators. The Kent State tragedy, following Iqr UiT«e days Nixon’s public castigation of student protesters as “bums," shocked the nation. More than 400 colleges and universities suspended classes In the first genera] student strike In America’s history. Bruce Mazlish, author of "In Search of Nixon,” speculates that “the months of April — May 1970 imposed the greatest strain on Nixon's psyche since 1962.

Drawer 770 Red Deer, Albcrtit Canada MONTREAL (CP) - Tite Quebec government has suggested modifications to its controversial James Bay hydroelectric project whldi could possibly lead to a settle* ment of the dispute between the government and the K,000 native people of the region in the province’s northwest. But a lawyer for natives of the region says reports that a settlement is near are “overly optimistic.” John Ciaccia, member of the Quebec National assembly for Montreal Mont Royal and Premier Robert Bourasaa's special representative in the talks with the natives, said in an interview Wednesday “the government has indicated that it is prepared to make, and will make, modifications x to the project." Robert Litvack, who has represented Eskimo interests in tbe dispute over the project and native rights in the area, Provincial judge named CALGARY (CP) - Norman A. P. MacKie, of tbe Calgary law firm of Mackie, Lyle and Smith, has been appointed a provincial court Judge by the AlberU cabinet, becoming the city’s seventh provincial judge. Bom in Calgary in 1941, Mr. Mackie attended the universities of Alberta and British Columbia and was admitted to the bar in 1968. described as “without foundation” reports a settlement is near. Lawyers for the Indians and Eskimos are on a tour through the north “more to listen than to talk.” Mr. Litvack said. Accompanied representai You’ve wodied hmdfin: your money.

Mr. Ciacda indicated the modifications were part of a package proposal made to tbe natives who have been oppos> ing the fS.B billion hydro development of the La Grande River for more than two years. The natives of the region, scattered in small settlements along the east coast of James Bay, have opposed the project on the grounds it will destroy the natural habitat th^ depend on for part of their livelihood from fishing and hunting. “Certain areas will not be flooded, one reservoir will not be built and one or two rivers will not be affected at tbe request of the Indians because they are important to them," Mr. Ciaccia said. He would not say if a cash settlement had been proposed along with the changes in the project, saying, "Perhaps the premier will nave something to say on the whole package. ’ ’ A Mark that Doesn’t Wear Off Or Wash Off Or Simply Disappear Maybe you just shrugged it off.

It can end your future before it’s begun. If you’re a juvenile it could have the most heart-breaking consequences. A police record could keep you out of college or good employment.
