Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 26, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wedntdtay, January 26, WZ THE lETHJRIOCf HERAlD B Justice Minister Jerome Chaquetle has indicated he does not share a view by Solicitor- General Jean-Pierre Goyer that police last fall prevented a ter- rorist crisis which would have had consequences worse than those of the political kidnap- pings in October, 1970. In an interview at nearby Boucherv i 11 c, Mr. Choquetle said "a few terrorist incidents" were nipped in the bud by un- dercover police work and wire- tapping "but there was nothing to indicate a crisis on the order of 1970." Mr. Goyer said in an inter- view earlier that combined squads from the Montreal po- lice force, Quebec Provincial Police and the RCMP prevent- ed a series of FLQ acts that "if carried out, might have had worse consequences than the James Cross kidnapping and assassination Pierre forte in 1970." Former prime minister John Dicfenbakcr says the Liberal government must bear respon- sibility for the strike of air traf- fic controllers. Mr. Diefenbaker said he ad- mits that the controllers are un. derpaid but added that the gov- ernment has "pussyfooted and procrastinated" on the matter. The government, he said at Prince Albert, should have fol- lowed the course taken by his former administration when the country was threatened by a CPR strike. Parliament should have been called to deal with the dispute, he said. Representative Shirley Chis- holm of New York, the first black U.S. congresswoman, for- mally announced in New York, that she is a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomi- nation. Mrs. Chisholm, 47, joins the crush of nine fellow Democrats who already have set their sights on the White House. She will be competing direc- tly with most of them, including New York's Mayor John Lind- say, in the March 14 Florida primary election, the first of about half a dozen she is likely to enter. She is given no chance of win- ning her party's nomination. Gerald Robinson, 45, of Glen Meyer, Ont., was charged with careless driving at Tillsonburg in an accident last week that killed Lulla Hellycr, 80, mother of former federal minister Paul Hellyer. Robinson, driver of a pickup truck in the two-vehicle JEROME CHOQUETTE no FLQ crisis collision, has been- in critical condition at hospital since the accident. Mr. Hellyer's father, Audrey, 83, died of a heart at- tack at London, Ont., five days after the death of his wife. Farmer and his wife Elsie travelled from Victoria to Halifax by ferry, aircraft and car for the annual convention of the Canadian Construction Association. They won a scroll and free hotel accommodation for their efforts, Concerned that the air strike would cut attendance at the convention, the association of- fered the award for the dele- gate who showed the most prowess and perseverance in making the trip. t Pierre Mcndes France, a former premier of France, says China's overriding fear of So- viet aggression is the key to Chinese foreign policy. He pre- dicted this will be an important element in United States Presi- dent Nixon's forthcoming visit .0 Peking. Mendes France was inter- viewed in Paris on a radio pro- gram after his return from a six-weeks study tour of China, Japan, Burma and India. He had several meetings with Chi- nese P r e mi i e r Cbou En-lai, whom he has known for years. "Whatever problem one dis- cusses with lie Chinese, they iave a tendency to bring the conversation around to their main cause of anxiety, the dan- ger of invasion of Soviet he said. News blackout at priest trial HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) The judge at the conspiracy trial of Rev. Philip Berrigan and six other anti-war activists has threatened to bar reporters from the jury-selection process and impose secrecy on the pro- ceedings. "I'm not telling the news media what to Judge R. Dixon Herman said here as the jury selection began. He urged, however, that' "all names, questions and responses be kept secret until the jury is sworn, and then you can publish it whenever you see fit." Herman said early publication could prejudice his efforts to ob- tain an unbiased and unhar- assed jury. Life-time jobs guaranteed U.S. printers DAYTON, Ohio (AP) Life- time employment has been guaranteed printers at Dayton Newspapers, Inc., under terms of a new contract approved dur- ing the weekend. The company publishes the Dayton Daily News and the Dayton Journal Herald. A spokesman for the firm said the job guarantee applies to a list of employees drawn up Jan. 9, 1972. The spokesman said the job guarantee was granted in return for abandonment by the Inter- national Typographical Union of a requirement that material in prepared advertising bo reset locally. Also awarded in the new con- tract was a wage in- crease. That portion of the con- Irnct is retroactive to Oct. 2, ]fl72, nnd subject to review by Hie federal Pny Board. The increases mil bring jour- neymen pay for day workers to nnd night workers to ?222.50. The new agreement provides for additional fringe benefits and shortens the work week to .1GU tram 3714 hours. The courtroom scats 80 spec- tators. News coverage of the jury selection is limited to three pool reporters chosen in a draw- ing from among the more than 50 on hand. PANEL REDUCED After the first day the original panel of 175 prospective jurors was trimmed to 82, with 38 of those excused, claiming they had formed prejudicial opinions and could not render an impar- tial judgment. Father Berrigan and the other defendants are accused of plot- ting to kidnap presidential ad- viser Henry Kissinger, bomb heat tunnels under certain Washington, D .C., buildings, smuggle the contraband h and out of a federal prison and raid military draft board offires in various cities around the United States. The 48-year-old Father Berri- gan, a self-styled revolutionary priest, told a reporter during a courtroom lull before federal marshals stopped him from talking that there had been a discussion among some of the defendants of a possible kidnap- ping. "There was no he insisted, however. Father Berrigan, serving a six-day prison term for destroy- ing draft files and accused of participating in the plot while in the nearby Lewisburg, Pa., pen- itentiary, labelled the govern- ment charges: "A catch-all, highly fabricated, utterly un- true." He is Ihc only defendant in custody. Wins business CLARESHOLM Willow Creek school board has awarded the insurance busi- ness for n number of school buildings to Smith Agency of Clarcsholm.
