No one turned away Nye EDMONTON (CP) The Hoyal Alexandra and Univer- sity hospitals have turned away some elderly citizens without admitting them for treatment, Dr. George Ball, city medical health officer, said Tuesday. Dr. Ball, after Investigating for the Just two montlis, reports that such instances were the said curring, singled out large hospitals but practise also occurred in other major Edmonton hospitals. French minesweeper rams Greenpeace says Russel Nye, executive direc- tor of the Royal Alexandra, said no one had heen turned away Irom that hospital i[ rec- ommended by a physician. Dr. Ball said he found the number of people turned away "relatively small" and there had been no new cases during the last two months since a VANCOUVER (CD-Green- peace Three, t h e Canadian ketch now in the South Pa- cific to protest the current se- ries of F r e n c h nuclear tests, has reported that it has been rammed by a French mine- sweeper. Few details are available, but Ben Metcalfe, chairman of the Greenpeace Foundation, which is sponsoring the ketch's voyage, said in an interview in Vancouver this morning that radio reports confirm the Greenpeace Three was dam- aged but was repaired at Hururoa and left Sunday. News reports earlier said that a collision between the ketch and a minesweeper had occurred, bul no mention of a ramming was made. Those news reports said the Greenpeace was damaged by the minesweeper as attempts were made to pass a message between the two vessels. It was reported that the ketch's radio was broken. Mr. Metcalfe said the radio messages from Hie South Pa- cific did not indicate when or where the alleged ramming took place, but he said he be- lieves it must have happened last Thursday or before. Last Thursday was the last time tire Greenpeace Founda- tion asked Prime Minister Tm- deau t.) guarantee the ketch's freedom to sail on the high seas within the nuclear test prime minister has made no commitment about the safety of the ketch and its three-man crew, one ol whom Is a Canadian. Mr. Metcalfe said he now be- lieves that Canada inform- ed of the collision between the Greenpeace and the French minesweeper when it occurred. "Tin's would explain why they would refuse to guarantee free- he said. In effect, Mr. Metcalfe said, the Canadian government was operating band ui hand with the French government by not releasing information on Lhe collision. REPAIRED PAPEETE, Tahiti (AP) A Canadian ketch that sailed into the French nuclear testing area to protest the tests was reported undergoing repr ,rs day, courtesy of the French Green-peace Three was navy. The damaged in a collision with a French minesweeper and also short of fuel and having radio trouble, officials here said. On Sunday, il entered the la- goon of the Mururoa atoll, where repairs were begun, free of charge, after an appeal to the commander of the French nuclear test group, Admiral Ciaverie, the officials said. The admiral invited the three Greenpeace crewmen to lunch. Two test explosions at JIuru- roa have been reported in the past two weeks although the French government refuses to give any information about them. The Greenpeace radioed that it witnessed the s e c o n d blast last Thursday. Bon Metcalfe, chairman of t h e Greenpeace Foundation, said In Vancouver, B.C., that he had received the message from the 38-foot ketch saying it was about 125 miles southwest of the atoll when the crew saw "a sudden glow lasting four min- utes and excessive winds and turbulence." Melcalfo said the crew did not see the first reported to have occurred June 25. Reports in Papeete said that once the Greenpeace was re- paired, it would sail for Raro- tonga, in the Cook Islands, 11 days away. But Metcalfe said the boat would remain in or near the test area for as long as the testing continues. Mr. Metcalfe discounted the "message-passing" report. He said he accepted the ramming report without reser vation, adding that it would b extremely bad seamanship fo a minesweeper to attempt tc pull close enough to a 37-foo ketch to pass a message.

Two young men in their early 20s were found shot through the head on the road to Belfast air- port, seven miles from the tenso city centre. The latest victims in a wave of unexplained killings lay one on (op of the other at the side of the roadside. Eight men were murdered In similar circumstances during the weekend. Six were Roman Catholics and two were Protes- tants. Police believe that all were the victims of sectarian entirely because of their religion or for their ac- tivity in rival Roman Catholic and Protestant groups. The death of the young men brought to at least 401 the toll of fatalities in Ulster since viol- ence erupted tliree years ago. There was some speculation in Belfast today that the wave of "executions" was being car- ried out by men masquerading as taxi drivers. The theory was they were picking up people in the city and were simply shot ing them if they happened to be of the "other" religion. The tivo murdered youths were later identified as Protes- tants and and Peter Orr, 20 and 19. FEAR REPORTED GRAND FORKS, B.C.
