Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE IETHMIDGI HERALD Tu.ldgy, July 11, 1971 yrovo hijacker gets 45-year term SAI-T LAKE CITY (AT) Ilichard Floyd McCoy was sen- tenced Monday lo 45 years in prison lov Ihc April hijacking ot ;i United Air Lines jetliner from which he bailed out wilh ransom. The charge ot air piracy car- ried tlie death penalty, but U.S. District Court Judgu Willis W. Hitler told a jury lhat this would not apply because of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling agaiast the death penalty Juno 23, the same day McCcy was lovuid guilty. McCoy, a Vietnam veteran, was convicled of commandeer- ing a Boc'ing 727 over western Colorado April 7, and ordering it off its Denver-Los Angeles route to Siin Francisco, whom 85 other pascngers were let oft and the money put aboard. McCoy, was arrested two days Inter til his home in Pvovo, UtsJi, where the money was re- covered along wilh a gun, para- chute helmets and a fake hand grenade, which Ihe FBI said were used in the hijacking. IWA divided employers say VANCOUVER (CP) British Columbia's striking forest work- ers have approved a contract agreement by a narrow margin, but that might not be enough lo restore production. It's the employers' turn to consider the agreement, and one executive says the 115 coast companies doubt that the union can guarantee all its members will honor the contract. The companies could withhold ap- proval until the International Woodworkers of America puts its house in order. Representatives of the compa- nies are holding a series ot meetings today to decide Spassky has white chessmen REYKJAVIK, Iceland (AP) challenger Bobby Fischer and Russian defender Boris Spassky finally begin play today in the richest and most publicized world chess champi- onship of all some new snag develops. Last-minute adjustments were being made on the stage ol Reykjavik's sports haU. Tha playing table .was shortened, the green-and-whlte marble chessboard constructed for the fourth time, iMd the. ov- erhead lighting changed. But these were small details compared with the tangled ne- gotiations and war of nerves that preceded the encounter, originally set to start July 2. Spassky, 35, drew the white chessmen and with them the first move. Fischer, 89, of Brooklyn, N.Y., had the black pieces. One game will be played each Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday starting at 5 p.m. (1 p.m. National prestige was at stake for the defending Russian. whether to approve the memo- randum ot agreement which won only 53 per cent approval from the woodworkers. The agreement provides for an increase of 73 cents an hour on the present base rate for laborers, special category full company pay- ment of health and welfare premiums and a number of other improvements in fringe benefits. A key element In the compa- nies' discussions likely will he the issue of the 000 fallers who began a wildcat strike in mid- April, long before an official, general walkout was called June 22. FALLEHS WILL STAY OUT Chuck Evans and Mike Davis, spokesmen for the fallen, said Monday night that more than 600 fallers voted against the contract proposals and are de- lermined to stay out until their demands are met. The fallers' wildcat action had forced layoffs prior to the offi- cial strike by drying up the flow of logs, and so the companies are faced with the threat of con- tinued disruption even if they sign a contract. This raised the possibility that the companies might reject the agreement, telling the IWA to straighten out its intra-union dispute with the fallers and the general dissatisfaction ex- pressed by the split over-all vote. Jack Moore, regional presi- dent of the IWA, and Jolm Bill- ings, president of Forest In- dustrial Relations which bar- gains for the companies, had "no comment" on the question. But an executive of one major company, who asked that his name not be used, acknowl- edged Monday that it was "quite possible" this could hap- pen. The executive also revealed the fact that the IWA during the course of the master bargaining talks refused to continue nego- tiations with e number of com- panies. South Vietnamese marines landed by U.S. 'copters SAIGON (AP) U.S. marine helicopters flying from offshore carriers landed hundreds of South Vietnamese marines north of Quang Trl City today, putting government forces on three sides of the Coramunist- held provincial capital.

(AP Wirephoio) Defence put in its place in Pentagon Papers trial LOS ANGELES (AP) The Pentagon Papers trial got under way Monday with the defence unsuccessfully seeking dis- missal of the first 110 prospec- tive jurors. The lawyers for Daniel EUs- Human rights violations alleged STRASBOURG, France (Reu- A Chicago lawyer, Luis Kutner, acting for 100 Roman Catholic detainees in Northern Ireland, has brought a ?50-mili lion suit against Britain for al- leged human rights violations in Ulster. Kutner, chairman of the Inter- national Commission for Due Process of Law, brought his re- quest in a series of complaints he filed with the Council of Eu- rope's Commission on Human Rights. Kutner charged that Britain violated several articles of the European convention on human rights in its treatment of the detainees, including those ban- ning torture and degrading or inhuman treatment. The detai- nees are held without trial. He told a news conference he would not make public the de- tails of the complaints "in order not lo bring prejudice to the people I am charged with de- fending." University buildings off the shelf EDMONTON (CP) The University of Alberta, troubled recently in its expansion pro- gram, has again given the green light to new building plans. The university's planning committee, in a report to gen- eral faculties council, has rec- ommended that three projects be given lop priority and that planning and development ac- tivity on them he resumed im- medialely. The three projected buildings berg and Anthony Russo the prospective panelists all seemed to be over 30 and did not represent a cross-section of opinion. U.S. District Court Judge Wil- liam Byrne denied the request for the jurors' mass dismissal and began questioning the panel en masse, rlo had niled earlier thai he alone, and not the law- yers, would question the jurors on their qualifications for serv- ice. Ellsberg, 41, and Russo, 35, both former Rand Corp. re- searchers who worked on gov- ernment projects, are charged in the release to news media of the top-secret papers detailing origins of the Vietnam war. Both defendants issued strong anti-war statements at the trial's opening. Elkberg told re- porters. "We hoped that the ad- ministration would have stopped killing Indochineso by the time it brought us to trial." Rusio and Ellsberg are with espionage, con- spiracy and theft. There are 12 counts in all against Ellsberg and three against Russo, in ad- dition to another joint charge of conspiracy. Both were indicted by a federal grand jury in Los Angeles. Eastman resigns his post TIED DEEfl (CP) Dr. Mervyn Eastman, 41, an- nounced Monday his resigna- tion as president of Red Deer College, now run by a provin- cial government administrator following a public inquiry into the way the institution was op- erated. The resignation was accepted by Dr. Raymond Fast, the gov- ernment-appointed administra- tor. In a prepared statement, Dr. Eastman said, "while I very much regret having (o resign from the college, I believe that if would be impossible for me to accomplish an effective job under the circumstances that have prevailed at the college during the last lew months." He was president of the eight- year-old college for two years and he and his administration were the subject of criticism by the student council and fac- ulty early this year. A report by Dr. T. C. Byrne, one-man inquiry commission, placed some of the blame for the college's difficulties with Dr. Eastman. Enrolment at the college last year was 816.

M a j .-G e n. Rehevam Zeevl, chief of Israel's central army command, was asked If he meant to keep his agreement with Okamoto. "God forbid, It was only the general replied. Zeevi testified on the second day of Okamoto's military trial for the machine-gun and gren- ade attack by himself and Iwo other Japanese working for the Popular Front for the Libera- tion of Palestine. Twenty-eight persons Including the other two Japanese were killed, and 67 were wounded. The chief defence lawyer, Max Kritzman, brought Zeevl into the case to prove his con- tention that the confession had been, made under duress. The general said he and the 24-year-old Japanese signed a written contract in which Oka- moto promised to give all infor- mation "honestly and in and Zeevi promised that when the interrogation was ended, he would give Okamoto a gun ''for his own use." Okamolo pleaded guilty Mon- day to the four charges against him, three of which are punish- able by death. Although Israeli law calls for an automatic plea of not guilty to all capital charges, the head of the three- man court, Lt.-Col. Abraham Frisch, ruled that he would "ac- cept as proven those facts Every lake gets a sign EDMONTON1 (CP) Bodies of water in Alberta have been divided into four categories under new regulations designed lo reduce conflicts of recrea- tional water activities.

JOHN'S, Nfld. fCP) Parole reform has made crime a better paying proposition than a university education, says Guy Marcil, president of Mont- re al's Policemen's Brotherhood. And the heads of all provin- cial police associations agreed with him Monday that reform of the prison reform system by the federal government went too far. 'Crime Mr. Marcii said during the annual confer- ence of the Canadian Police As- sociation. "li's better than a university education. If you go into crime today your chances of success are very good. And If you end up in jail all the benefits are on the side of the criminal." The leaders of provincial as- sociations, silting on a panel Mr. Marcil, agreed that the grounds for granting parole should be tightened. So did Sydney Brown of To- ronto, president of the associa- tion, in an opening address which also was critical of changing conditions within pris- ons. "If we maintain our present reckless and rudderless course of stupidity and senselessness Ihcn shortly our courls will be issuing rain clictks to prisoners in case they don't approve of the surroundings or Mr. Brown said. He urged all policemen to take a more active part in poli- tics.
