Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 8, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta CLOUDY FORECAST HIGH FRIDAY NEAR 70. ?OL. LXIV No. 176 The LetKbridge Herald LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, THURSDAY, JULY 8, 1971 PRICE NOT OVER 10 CENTS TWO SECTIONS 22 PAGES PM braves politically hostile Alta. By JOHN HAY OTTAWA (CP) Alberta, practically barren of Liberals, is a political badland for the government, and Prime Minister Trudeau has not ventured into the province for two years. But he returns for a long weekend in southern Alberta Friday, touching down in three of four Lib- eral ridings in the province and braving only one or two of the 15 Conservative strongholds. High spot of the tour will be his participation in the Caigary Stampede parade Monday. He is sched- uled to view first-day events that include bronc and brahma bull riding, chuckwagon races and the grand- stand show. Calgary is mainly Conservative with Eldon Wool- liams representing Calgary North and Douglas, Hark- ness Calgary Centre. Pat Mahoney, parliamentary sec- retary to Finance Minister E. J. Benson, holds Cal- gary South' for the Liberals. Mr. Trudeau will get a friendly reception Friday in Medicine Hat when his Jetstar makes its first stop and he is greeted by the local MP, Agriculture Min- ister H. A. Olson. Closed sessions feiv Typical of Mr. Trudeau's trips around the coun- try, there will be a minimum of closed-door meet- ings with party regulars, and a maximum of expo- sure to the townsfolk. After a Saturday trail ride, branding party and barbecue in Medicine Hat, the prime minister will fly to Lethbridge, then fly by helicopter to Standoff and the Blood Indian reserve. That's Tory country, the LeBibridge riding of Deane Gundlock. Late Saturday afternoon Mr. Trudeau will ride the helicopter into Waterton Lakes National Park and Allan Sulatycky's Liberal riding of Rocky Mountain. A Sunday afternoon in in Rocky Mountiain-and the prime minister flies to Calgary, where the only partisan event will be a liberal bar- becue supper Monday in Heritage Park. His aides are not making any promises, but Mar- garet Trudeau may drop in somewhere along her hus- band's route. Bills arouse ire That might help douse anger about two govern- ment bills that are being hotly disputed in the West. The government's farm products marketing bill has weathered slings and arrows for more than a year in the Commons, mostly hurled by opposition MPs from Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. The bill would authorize establishment of national boards to market, buy, process, store and export the farm commodities for which they were set up. Opposition critics say it could imprison farmers and ranchers in government controls, although pro. ducer approval would be needed to set up a board. The other fiery issue in the West is the govern- ment's proposed grain income stabilization bill, that would set up a government-farmer fund from which farmers could draw when the industry income falls below the preceding five-year average. Opposition MPs say the measure will just "sta- bilize poverty." Mr. Trudeau also may have to face that nagging talk of western Alber- ta, one of the richest three provinces in the country. He will stick to his own rules and stay out of provincial politics, although a provincial election is ex- pected in the fall or early spring. Liberals now hold no seats in the legislature, which has been ruled since 1935 by the Social Credit. Canadians in majority 011 university staffs OTTAWA (CP) Fifteen per cent of the full-lime staffs of Canadian universities were citizens from the United States at the start of last academic year, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics reports. The per cent were Canadian citi- zens, and another 10 per cent were British. The survey covered professors, lecturers, and other full-lime academic staff members of 111 Cana- dian universities and colleges. It found Ihal were Canadians, Ameri- cans, and citizens of the United Kingdom. Franco was represented by 589, or 2.8 per cent of the total, and India and Pakistan by 440, or J.I per cent. The largest proportions of U.S. 'instructors were in Ihc humanities and social science faculties, 24 and 20 per cent respectively. British citizens were predominantly in the litera- ture, languages r.nd pure sciences faculties, and the highest percentages of Canadians were in faculty ad- ministration and the blotogkal sdencw, Viet Cong peace bid given cold shoulder FOOTBALL Football is a game that requires a lot of skull.

(AP) A powerful atomic bomb, a proto- type of a nuclear explosive that some day may free natural gas from deep rock formations, was test-fired feet beneath the desert today. About four times as powerful as the bomb dropped on Hiro- shima, the device pushed the surface of Yucca Basin several feet into the ah-. Blast waves flattened television cameras two miles away and gently rocked observers 12 miles away. The Atomic Energy Commis- sion, which said there was no evidence of radiation immedi- ately after the shot, hopes one day to sell a similar nuclear ex- plosive to private firms for frac- turing the vast sandstone beds that lie under several Rocky Mountain states. Scientists estimate there are 317 trillion cubic feet of gas trapped in the sandstone forma- tions, more than the nation's present natural gas reserve. Rockets wreck hospital From PETAH TIKVAH, Israel (CP) A volley of Arab guerrilla rockets wrecked part of a hospi- tal and other buildings Wednes- day night, leaving two persons dead and more than 30 injured in the first attack on Israelis most densely-populated region this year. A five-year old girl and a woman died when about four or five Russian-made Katyusha rockets crashed into this town of 80.000 about six miles from Tel Aviv. One'missile scored a direct hit on the Beit Rivka hospital for the chronic sick. One ward was completely destroyed and two others were damaged. The girl died when a rocket ripped into her home. Her par- ents and two sisters were wounded. A school and other buildings were also hit. Most of the injured were eld- erly patients at the hospital which had more than 90 beds. The area was clamped under a curfew and sealed off after OB rockets landed. It was the first guerrilla strike in the re- gion since two bomb blasts killed one person and wounded 20 in Tel Aviv's central bus sta- tion in November. German picks up in gruelling air race VICTORIA (CP) Dapper Joe Blumschein of Heiner- hagen, West Germany, who flew the British Col- umbia centennial London-to-Vie- toria air race dressed as if he was on a short hop to Berlin for a board meeting, will collect for the trip. And when he stepped on to the tarmac here Wednesday night to accept his prize, his im- maculate outfit hardly showed a wrinkle. Blumschein, a 42-year-old pro- fessional pilot, scored 591 points short of the maximum for the gruelling seven-day test his Swearingen Merlin n, to collect the top prize as the over-all winner. There was also a bonus he and his co-pilot, Fritz Kohlgruber, earned for top place in each of two Quebec-Ottawa leg and the stretch from Winnipeg to Re- giiia. "This is an executive aircraft and that's the way we decided to fly said Blumschein, straightening the lapels of his chocolate-brown sports jacket, his beige slacks still holding a razor crease. The second-place finisher, Irish chicken farmer Timothy Philips, made with a six-lap total of 580 points in his Piper Twin Commanche PA-30. Fifty-three planes ended the race here in splendid flying Money ivinners VICTORIA (CP) -Top 10 finishers in the London-to-Vic- toria air race, listing over-all points and money winners: 1. J. H.

Irene Lcverton, San Jose, Calif., 522. Total weather after thunderstorms over the eastern Rockies caused a five-hour delay in the take-off from Calgary Wednesday morn- ing. The race started July 1 at Abingdon, England, near Lon- don. It was staged to honor B.C.'s entry into Confederation 100 years ago. The third over-all finisher was Dr. J. W. Reames of Long Beach, Calif., who compiled 572 points and picked up He was followed by the highest of the Canadian entries, Jim Wright of Edmonton, who won for the best showing by a twin-engine plane. A total of 57 planes began the race. Two crashed en route to North America and the crews were rescued. One pilot, Roger Hannagan of Canby, Ore., was disqualified. Hannagan, who finished the race Wednesday, was cut off from the big money because he left his co-pilot on the tarmac at Prestwick, Scotland, following a fracas between the two. Race organizers said he had been dis- qualified for not giving the re- quired one-hour's notice before altering his crew. Top .woman in the field was Louise Sacchi, a grandmother from Jenkintown, Pa. She was the only solo woman flyer in the race and ended up with as runner-up in the single-en- gine class with 524 points. Blumschein attributed his suc- cess to a superior airplane and his own experience as a profes- sional pilot. Dr. T.' J. Walker of Fort Macleod, Alta., finished 28th in the race. Britain identifies Soviet defector PARIS (AP) The United States said today that the Viet Cong proposal for total U.S. withdrawal by the end of the year in exchange for release of all prisoners of war is unaccept- able in its present form. But it said the Viet Cong's seven-point peace plan has "some new elements" and the U.S. and South Vietnam want to explore the plan further with North Vietnam and the Viet Cong. Ambassador David K. E. Bruce proposed to the 120th ses- sion of the Paris peace talks that their session next Thursday be a "restricted" one, "free from the glare of publicity and without the need to make public statements except to the degree we mutually agree upon." Both Bruce and South Viet- n a m e s e Ambassador Pham Dang Lain saW a week-long analysis of the peace package did not show changes in the basic Communist demands. But Bruce said that if the proposals mean Hanoi and the Viet Cong are ready for serious negotia- tions, this is welcome. Bruce said the demands for withdrawal of all U.S. and other non-Vietnamese forces by the end of Uie year "are so sweep- ing and categorical in nature that we cannot possibly accept your arbitrary determination that they must be agreed to by us without any discussion or ne- gotiation upon them." OFFER UNCLEAB Bruce said the Communist to 'agree on the modali- ties' of safe withdrawal and re- lease of prisoners after a date for withdrawal has been named is unclear and may be merely a variation of your previous state- ment that the parties 'will en- gage at once in discussion' on these questions, not necessarily conimitting you to the course of action implied. This point, as well as others you have presented, requires clarifica- tion. "On the prisoners-of-war issue Bruce continued, "we note that you do not deal with the release of those prisoners captured by your forces or forces under your control in Laos and Cambodia." "We continue to hold you re- sponsible for the release of these men and for the provision of whatever information you have on all of our men captured and missing hi action through- out Indochina." Lam countered the Viet Cong plan with a call for immediate and unconditional release of all prisoners of war, establishment of a general ceasefire "and a timetable for the withdrawal of all the external mean- ing North Vietnamese in South Vietnam as well as the Ameri- cans and other foreign troops fighting on Saigon's side. The South Vietnamese dele- gate told the Viet Cong's Mrs. Nguyen Thi Binh her peace plan is "faulty because of its ambi- guity on what you would be pre- pared to do." Don't-eat-soups warning issued OTTAWA (CP) Canadians were warned today by the health department not to eat soups produced by Bon Vivant Soups Inc. of Newark, N.J., as these products have been asso- ciated with the poison botulism. The products are sold in Can- ada under the labels of Hickory Farms of Ohio, Ancor and Reese Finer Foods. A spokesman for the food and drug directorate said a small amount of these soups have Seen and heard About town LONDON (AP) British offi- cials have identified the Russian who defected here six weeks ago as a scientist who has done important research on "power- ful magnetrons." They insisted his real name is Anatol Fedoseyev, whose name appears on reference works as early as 1962. The officials denied published reports that Fedoseyev is an as- sumed name and that the man is really a top official in the So- viet space program. They ac- knowledged that his research has applications to the space ef- fort. Both the Los Angeles Times, in a report from Helsinki where the strategic arms limitation talks resumed today, and the West German magazine Der Spiegel say the defector is really Ignatiev Alexandrovitch Nikitrine, 61, a deputy director of the space program in charge of electronics and cybernetics. The Los Angeles Times also says U.S. officials have ques- tioned the defector, who may al- ready be in the United Slates, an dlhe information he provided UOCLV should aid the U.S. in the SALT negotiations. But both the U.S. embassy here and British government of- ficials said no American has yet JVUI'IWU that hitchhiking seems to be popular with people of ah" ages, Janet Wcinstcr saying "My mother and father tried- hitching to get downtown.

Find lost tribe in remote area -they're pure MANILA (Renter) A lost tribe which has never eaten rice, cultivated plants, tasted salt or sugar or smoked tobacco has been discovered in a remote area in the south, the Philippine news service said today. The tribe appeared to have had no contact with outsiders for more than 500 years, and Dr. Robert Fox, chief anthropologist of the National Museum said it is possible they "are among the few, if not UK only peo- ple in the world today, who do not know or use to- bacco." Drunk blamed for fire VANCOUVER (CP) A coro- ner's jury has ruled that the deaths of 32 crew members in a fire aboard the Norwegian cruise ship Meteor were unnatu- ral and accidental. The jury reached its decision in about 40 minutes Wednesday after hearing testimony from a fire marshal's inspector that the blaze was probably started by a cigarette dropped by a drunken crew member. The fire broke out in the crew's quarters May 22 with the ship 60 miles northwest of Van- couver on the return leg of an eight-day Alaskan cruise. Al- most all of the deaths resulted from carbon monoxide poison- ing. Ron Pollard, fire marshal's inspector, told the jury tl e in- vestigation had established that the fire started on B deck in cabin 29 occupied by ship's baker Ludwig Huse, 52, who died in the fire. He referred to earlier testi- mony, which showed that Huse had a blood-alcohol reading of .21.
