Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta IWI Ethiopia's feudal system threatened The latest political upheaval in Ethiopia puts further and possibly fatal strains on a social system which closely resembled the feudal order of medieval Europe. The build-up of central power in the African with its 25 million inhabitants representing a wide ethnic variety spread over square involved big handouts of land and other wealth in return for the sup- port of influential local figures. Now along with high- ranking churchmen and mem- bers of the governmental bu- form an affluent elite amid a mass of landless poor. The poor blame the rich mi- nority for alleged neglect of a disastrous drought situation which brought death to hun- dreds of thousands of Ethio- pians. Charges of governmen- tal corruption are rife too. Chief reformists tend to be junior army officers from out- side the established social elite. Certainly there is every sign this time of determination on the army's part to bring about major changes. Sweeps by heavily-armed troops searching for wanted intensive talks between the military and established politicians about reform de- mands and the tight control exercised by the military over the Addis prove that the officers definitely mean business. But to turn reform ideas into reality might prove a ma- jor requiring the kind of force which the military planned to avert. For private ar- mies in the service of rich in- dividuals are common in another point of resemblance to the Middle Ages in Europe and potential- ly a threat to the reformers. the process of ef- fectively centralizing the country continues to be sub- jected to separatist strains despite the efforts of Haile emperor since 1930. An example is the guerrilla movement in the northeastern region which was an Italian colony before British forces conquered it in 1941. Eritrea was handed over to Ethiopia in 1952 and was fully integrated into the imperial state system 10 years later. But the extent of continuing anti-government agitation in Eritrea was dramatized by the recently-ended detention of Canadian helicopter pilot Donald held for three months by kidnappers representing the self- described Eritrean Liberation Front For Haile Selassie occupied a sacrosanct place in the politics of Ethiopia generally. Advocates of change try to avoid acting against him per- sonally.

He warned about the erty of a situation in which government can af- ford to provide all services needed or demanded but has to assign them priorities in order to get everything done. This means people would have to wait a long time for actual delivery of possible services. He also said there has been no successful assessment to date of the effects of tech- nological change on people. Mr. Kahn blamed the recent world energy crisis on by the United States government. These included keeping the price of natural gas too thus causing depletion of re- driving coal from the market and hampering delaying building of the Alaska enforcing badly for- mulated environmental and ecological safety measures too rigidly and rapidly. New act proclaimed OTTAWA The gov- ernment has proclaimed the new Weights and Measures Act and its regulations to be in force Aug. 1974. The act updates existing legislation by recognizing changes in business practices and advances in such as the increasing use of electronic weighting devices which record and print weight and price on packaged com- modities. A statement yesterday by Consumer Affairs Minister Herb Gray states it also will lay a firm foundation for conversion to the metric system by defining all quan- tities whether gallons or feet in terms of internationally recognized metric units. The act also makes tamper- ing with or resetting odometers on automobiles a federal even if the tampering is done in one province and the car sold in another. This part of the act will be enforced by the RCMP with the co-operation of provincial authorities. Other devices to be controll- ed by the act include coin- operated vending machines for the dispensing of coffee or soft-drinks which now will be required to state the quantity of beverage served in each cup. one of eight elegant styles by Revelstoke Companies 4AAA Phonft 327-5777 knee and a smashed nose and his pilot's licence was suspended by the transport ministry for medical reasons.
