The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta r.lL.. f u...t Printing firms guilty BATHURST, N-B. (CP) In a precedent-setting case, K. C. Irvine Ltd. and three associated publishing companies were found guilty Thursday of forming a monopoly of English-lan- guage daily newspapers in the province of New Brunswick. Giving his verdict in New Brunswick Supreme court, Mr. Justice Albany M. Robichaud said the accused companies had set up a monopoly, combine and merger whose object was "the prevention or lessening of free competition." He found such interference with newspaper competition to be against the public interest. Four charges under federal combines laws were laid in December, 1971. Two charges cited offences between 1948 and 1960, the other two listed offences between 1960 and 1971. The three publishing com- panies produce all five English-language dailies in New Brunswick. K.C. Irving Ltd., which obtained control of all three, was convicted on four counts. New Brunswick Publishing Co. Ltd., publisher of the Saint John Telegraph-Journal and Times-Globe, was found guilty on three. Moncton Publishing Co. Ltd., publisher of the Moncton Times and Transcript, and University Press of New Brunswick Ltd., publisher of The Gleaner in Fredericton, Were each convicted on one count. POSTPONES SENTENCE Judge Robichaud postponed sentence tentatively, until Tuesday, March 12. The Combines Investigation Act provides no lower or upper limit on any fine that might be imposed, leaving it to the court's discretion.

Police said earlier that 25 boys died in the Wednesday night blaze, but later issued an official correction. A priest said smoking was strictly forbidden in all dormi- tories, but one student said: "We knew some did smoke se- cretly, as in every dormitory of every school." Police said most of the vic- tims were overcome by smoke and did not waken before the flames caught them About 40 other boys escaped. Krogh 6sad and sorry' PHONE 32I-2702-327-3610 WASHINGTON (AP) Egil Krogh Jr., the boss of a White House group set up to plug news leaks, was sentenced Thursday to serve six months in prison for the burglary of the office of the psychiatrist of Daniel Ellsberg He was the first top- level White House staffer to be sent to prison. The 34-year-old Krogh told the judge that he is "sad and sorry" about what he did because "it represented an official government action." NOTICE!

OF OUR NEW STORE IN THE WESTMINSTER PLAZA VIETNAM: But peace never came SAIGON (AP) The ceasefire came to South Vietnam a year ago to the tolling of church bells, the thumping of drums and the wailing of sirens. President Nguyen Van Thieu described it as "this historic moment." But peace never came. The fighting never completely stopped A year later, the bells still ring, the drums beat, the sirens wail. The drums are the cadence of the funeral processions. The bells toll for the more than South Vietnamese soldiers and civilians the government says have been killed during the year of "peace." Saigon claims more than North Vietnamese and Viet Cong troops have been killed in the past year. The sirens signal Saigon's midnight curfew, symbolic of a country still at war. The ceasefire that never worked added more than a half-million refugees to relief rolls last year, frightened business, increased inflation and lowered living standards for South Vietnam's 19 million people. "There can never be peace as long as the North Vietnamese stay in the Thieu said recently. A Communist led offensive is under way in neighboring Cambodia where U.S. sources estimated government soldiers were killed and wounded or missing during the first year of the Paris agreement. The agreement, which became effective Jan. 27, ma, also was to bring peace to Cambodia. Nearly four years of war in Cambodia have generated about two million refugees, about 30 per cent of the country's seven million population. Since the ceasefire, the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong have consolidated their zones of control in the western half of South Vietnam that borders Laos and Cambodia, in a 15-mile strip just below the demilitarized zone at the 17th Parallel, in three provinces north of Saigon and in two provinces in the western Meking Delta. The South" Vietnamese government is strongest along the coast. Much of the area between them is a no man's land, controlled by the forces that happen to be there at the moment. In many areas government and Communist positions are tightly interspaced. There is no real delineation of zones of control as the ceasefire agreement demanded. The failure of the two-party joint military peacekeeping commission, made up of dele- gates of the Saigon government and the Viet Cong to implement this major provision, is a prime reason for the bloody battles. "The North Vietnamese and Viet Cong control the vast ma- jority of the border area be- tween North Vietnam and Tay Ninh in South says one American official. This is a 400-mile-long strip of land running from the demilitarized zone southward to Tay Ninh, 55 miles above Saigon, and is often called "the third Viet- nam." Both U.S. and South Vietnamese officials claim the Thieu government controls about 95 per cent of the population, about the same figure cited prior to the ceasefire. Maj.-Gen Hoang Anh Tuan, the Viet Cong's chief delegate to the Joint Military Commis- sion in Saigon, disputes U.S. and South Vietnamese claims. "The figures of percentage said by the Saigon adminis- tration are not he said in an interview at the Viet Cong compound in Camp Davis on Saigon's Tan Son Nhut air base. "The area of control of the Provisional Revolutionary Government (the Viet Cong) includes a very large part of South Vietnamese said Tuan. "I do not have the figures available. It is not very easy to have a figure on the percentage of land. "We now are striving to compel the Saigon administration to come to a determination of the areas of control of the two parties. The Saigon administration is evading the question and at- tempting to continue encroaching operations against areas of control of the Provisional Revolutionary Government." The agreement a year ago called for a political settlement in South Vietnam by the end of April, but the political talks in Paris became hopelessly dead- locked as have military negotiations in Saigon between the two parties to the Joint Military Commission. Arabs sentenced to death U.S. District Judge Gerhardt Gesell said Krogh had made an eloquent statement but "any punishment short of jail would in the court's view be inadequate." Krogh was sentenced to a term of two to six years in prison but the judge said he would have to serve only six months of it and remain on probation for two years. The judge gave Krogh 10 days to straighten out his affairs before starting the term. ATHENS (AP) Two Pale- stinian Arab terrorists were sentenced to death by a Greek criminal court Thursday for the premeditated murder of five persons and for injuring another 45 in a grenade and gun attack last August at the Athens airport transit lounge. The court also set 27-year prison sentences for Arid el Shafik, 22, a topographer, and Khantouran Palaal, 22, unem- ployed, both Jordanian-born members of the Black September -terrorist movement. After sentences were pro- nounced at the end of a 12- hour trial, the two Palestinians stood, raised their handcuffed arms in the air and walked toward the five-man court in protest. Police pulled them back and hustled them out of court. As they stepped out into the road and were pushed into a police vehicle, a crowd of Greeks booed them. Armed police on motorbikes and a fleet of police limousines carrying officers armed with machine-guns accompanied the vehicle carrying the Palestinians. FIRST TRIAL It was the first known trial of Palestinian terrorists in their fight against Israel. At least 28 terrorists surren- dered to Arab governments last year after separate escapades ranging from killing foreign diplomats in Sudan to seizing and blowing up an airliner, but none of these has been brought to trial. The court clearly showed its intentions when it rejected a proposal from the public prosecutor that the two Arabs be spared the death penalty on the grounds that their crime "resulted from patriotic motives and the desire to liberate their lands from (Israeli) occupation." After the court's expression, the prosecutor demanded the death penalty. The Palestinians were so shocked by the sentence that BEDS INTRODUCED Slate beds were introduced into billiards in 1836. Palaal grabbed his interpreter and began shaking him and shouting. Police, who had moved in closer after the verdict was read in Greek, immediately wrenched the Palestinian away from the interpreter. The defence said it will ap- peal. SHE'S GOT CHUTZPAH. That's Jewish for nerve, or determination and Mrs. Bluma Appel of Montreal has a special kind of it.
