Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 30, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, January 30, 1971 Malayan railway porter becomes minor folk hero LONDON (CP) - A Malayan porter of the nationalized British Railways has become a minor folk hero for waving a sickJe at a passenger who dropped' an empty cigarette package on his immaculate platform. British Rail is notorious-at least in complaints from customers-for unkempt cars and sleazy stations. Porter Yahaya Bahari got super-enthusiastic at dressing up Beckenham Hill station in Kent, sweeping up, trimming the grass and buying flowers out of his meagre pay. For his exuberance, he now is banished to Blackfriars station in central London, where no flowers grow. This week Bahari was brought into court for brandishing the grass-cutting sickle at a passenger who refused to pick up the dropped cigarette package. He was convicted of having an offen- ASHPHALT PAVING TOLLESTRUP SAND and GRAVEL Construction Co.

Dismiss charges against general WASHINGTON (AP) - The United States Army dropped all charges Friday against Maj.-Gen. Samuel W. Koster, accused in the alleged coverup of the army massacre of more than 100 civilians at My Lai, South Vietnam, in 1968. The charges were dismissed by Lt.-Gen. Jonathan Seaman, commanding general of the 1st Army at Fort Meade, Md., who conducted the pre-trial investigation of Koster, former superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y. Koster commanded the MP pleads for small business By VICTOR MACKIE Herald's Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA - Small business in Western Canada is encountering difficulties in making collections from hard-up farmers and therefore should not be fined for the late filing of tax returns, a western opposition member toM the Commons. Jack Mcintosh (PC - Swift Current) pleaded with acting prime minister Mitchell Sharp to declare a moratorium on fines imposed for late filing. He argued that these fines are "to a large degree a form of blackmail on the part of the federal government." Small businessmen were in a tight squeeze largely brought about by the federal government through its lack of ability to sell western grain or to cope with rising unemployment, said Mr. Mcintosh. army's America! Division at the time of the My Lai incident of March, 1968. The army said Seaman found "some evidence to support two of the specifications" against Koster, but after considering the charges "concluded that it would be in the best interests of justice to dismiss all of the charges." The action leaves only two officers-Col. Oran K. Henderson and Capt. Dennis H. Johnson-still facing possible court martial for handling of a field investigation of the My Lai incident. Thirteen "officers and other men originally were accused of committing crimes at My Lai, but charges have been dismissed against all but three. Murder charges are still pending against Capt. Ernest L. Medina, Capt. Eugene J. Kotouc and Lieut. William L. Calley Jr. Calley now is on trial but the army has yet to decide whether to court-martial the two captains. Koster and 13 other officers were accused of allegedly covering up the incident after a high-level army investigation reported evidence indicating that "certain persons, wittingly and unwittingly, suppressed certain information about the incident from passing up the chain of command."
