The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta tt-THt UnrHSMDOl HERALD January M. W4 Sentenced to life imprisonment Skiing trip in Germany ends in Turkish jail ANTAKYA, Turkey (AP) For Kathryn Zenz, a skiing trip to West Germany ended in a Turkish jail by the Orontes River. She says she still can't believe what happened to her. She and two other young Americans she met in a Munich discotheque have been sentenced to life imprisonment following conviction of con- spiracy to introduce narcotics into Turkey. Their lawyer plans to appeal. Miss Zenz, 28, of Lancaster, Wis.; Joann Mane McDaniel, 29, of Salem, Ore.; and Robert Ernest Hubbard, 23, a native of Washington state with no permanent address, were arrested Dec. as they entered Turkey from Syria soon after dawn, driving three minibuses on hire from a Munich firm. Hidden in the ceilings of the vehicles were 264 pounds of hashish, divided into slabs weighing a pound each, wrapped in individual plastic bags, authorities said Four other American girls, aged 21 to 26, were travelling with them as passengers on the trip from Beirut back to West Germany. They were released on bail last August and acquitted at the trial. Hubbard admitted his guilt and named persons in Beirut who he said had supplied the drugs. The court did not believe Miss Zenz and Miss McDaniel, who said they were totally ignorant of the hidden hashish. The sentence for all three was death, com- muted to life because, in the words of Antakya assistant public prosecutor, Cahit Sar, they had been "well behaved in court." "We thought we were going to Beirut to buy curios and leather coats to sell them in Ger- Miss Zenz said. In her testimony in court she said Hubbard had told them the prices in Beirut were too high, and they would wait un- til they returned to Istanbul to make their pur- chases "It just doesn't seem Miss Zenz said in an interview at the jail, a converted stable which holds 200 prisoners. Hubbard is allowed to meet the girls whenever they have a visitor, which is about once a week, usually from the U.S. consulate in Adana. No Americans live in Antakya, a town of residents. Kayyum Menziletoglu, lawyer for the Americans, said in an interview he believes the decision of the three-man tribunal in Antakya was erroneous. He said he is attempting to have the Supreme Court in Ankara reverse the decision, overturning the conspiracy charge and freeing the girls at least. Hubbard's sentence would come down to 10 years if conspiracy were not involved. Menziletoglu said he had presented sworn testimony by Hubbard to the effect that the drugs were loaded into the minibuses at the Byblos camping site near Beirut when the girls were absent The lawyer said the court in Antakya was hampered by publicity surrounding the case, which was tried before television cameras. It was also acting under a new policy of stiff sentences for large-quantity drug smugglers. The amount of hashish entering Turkey, espe- cially from Syria, has increased sharply in the last 12 months. U.S narcotics officials also are believed to have been pressuring Turkey, the unwilling centre of the Mideast drug trade, to crack down on smugglers. Woman executive airline pioneer TORONTO (CP) Anne Bodnarchuk, who directs com- puter and systems services for Air Canada, is one of the few women executives employed by the airline "I'm a pioneer in one that's she said in an inter- view.

After graduating in math- ematics from Queen's Univer- sity, she took a job with Manu- facturers Life in Toronto but switched to Air Canada because she wanted to travel. That ambition hasn't been realized: "The best I seem to manage is one good vacation in the sun every year." Miss Bodnarchuk's first job with Air Canada 14 years ago was doing operational research in the maintenance department. She now directs a staff of seven men and is in- directly responsible for 550 employees, many of them women.

TORONTO (CP) Folk art has already disappeared- in Europe, and has not long to live elsewhere, says Erica Billeter. She says it is being replaced by the self-conscious production of crafts by people who work as artists. "Europe has nothing left in folk art, we're finished. We're in the industrial age, in the plastic culture." Dr. Billeter is curator of the Museum Bellerive, which she describes as an applied arts museum, in Zurich, Switzer- land. She was in Canada as part of her work as one of three judges choosing exhibits for a World Crafts Council dis- play. It will open at the On- tario Science Centre in June and will include 600 craft items from most of the coun- cil's 75 member nations. She said she believes folk art is changing in developing countries, as life patterns change, and that it will have disappeared completely in 10 or 20 years. "Even in the un- derdeveloped countries, a lot of folk art is done today only for selling to tourists, when a craftsman sees that he can sell his work, he goes into production, and his work changes. "We have no different criteria for judging the two kinds of work. Not every work done by hand is good work, some primitive work can be very bad." He said the judges have looked for quality, for sim- plicity of form and for an aura of what she described as soul or magic, a feeling for the ob- ject. She said she regrets the loss of true folk art, but is excited by some of the new trends. "It's not necessary to make our own pots by hand, industry does it perfectly well. "But we have this need in our culture, it is in man to work with his hands. One hundred years ago he made these things for use, now this creativity is free to do other things. "For me the most marvellous event in the last 10 years is that materials that were for functional art now are for decorative art. FJ EAQLES HALL ethAve.AMMllMtBLN.
