Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THB IETHMIDGE HERALD Juiy 11, 1973 News in brief Court order stalls vote result WINNIPEG (CP) The vote that will break the deadlock in the Wolseley riding election may not be cast until next week, unless a court order scheduled for judgment next week is removed, Wolseley Re- turning Officer Jim Maloway said Tuesday. The court order bars Mr. Maloway from reconsidering a hospital ballot he formerly re- jected. It was initiated by Liberal leader Izzy Asper who, like NDP candidate Murdoch Mac- kay, received votes in the June 28 election. Conservative candidate Robert Steen re- ceived votes. Uganda president Amin warns U.S. LONDON (Reuter) dent Idi Amin of Uganda has warned the United States he will not stand for any American "dirty tricks" which might turn Uganda into another Vietnam, Radio Uganda reported. A broadcast monitored here Tuesday said Amin told U.S. Charge d'Affaires Robert Kee- ley that drastic measures would be taken against any Americans in the country found working against Ugandan interests. The radio said Amin added that he was shocked to learn that in a period of only two years, 22 "minor religious sects" had infiltrated Uganda from the United States. He said he is not ready to see another Cambodia or Vietnam in Uganda, the radio added. Gotft studies Arctic railways OTTAWA (CP) The federal government is making "a fresh evaluation" of building railways to the Arctic, Energy Minister Donald Macdonald told the Commons Tuesday. But he indicated that the studies are being concentrated on a Northwest-Territories route rather than one through the Yukon. Replying to questions from Stuart Legatt Mr. Macdonald said an Arctic railway, as pro- posed by British Columbia Pre- mier David Barrett, would in- volve construction in both the Yukon and Alaska to carry oil and gas to markets in the south. Mr. Macdonald said such a project does not enjoy a high priority vvith the United States. Nor would Mr. Barrett's pro- posed railway route through B.C. reach Canadian resources in the Mackenzie Delta, scene of the Arctic's biggest oil and gas play. Air controllers defy court order FRANKFURT (AP) Oper- ations were suspended today at Frankfurt Airport, Central Eu- rope's largest, after air con- trollers defied a court in- junction against their six-week- old slowdown. Domestic and international flights were diverted to other West German airports, where no serious disruptions were re- ported. The controllers are demand- ing better pay, working condi- tions and technical facilities. The slowdown has also forced Hannover and some other air- ports to suspend operations temporarily at various times. Lufthansa, the German airline, has canceleld more than 100 flights daily, and other flights have often hours. been delayed for bail set in big drug case NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C.

T2P2RI Mr. V P Brcwn Plan probe into U.S, oil prices WASHINGTON cost of Living (AP) The Council an- nounced Tuesday an investiga- tion of the United States petro- leum industry, from the re- finery to the gas pump, to de- termine whether prices have been increased illegally. James McLane, deputy coun- fil director, said price rollbacks 931 be ordered where violations of the government's current price freeze are found. One violation the investiga- tors will watch for, he said, is a reduction of the octane rating of gasoline without a correspond- ing decrease in price. McLane also said the pro- posed new anti-inflation pro- gram, called Phase 4, win not be able to stop a continued rise in food prices over the next six months. But he said the in- crease should be much less than the 22-psr-cent rate of in- crease this year before the price freeze. He said the supply of food hems, such as fruits and vege- i tables, chickens and hogs, have not developed as anticipated. Coupled with havy foreign de- mand for U.S. agricultural goods, rises in food price are In- evitable, he said. Administration sources sa'd announcements of some details of the Phase 4 program to fol- low the 60-day freeze imposed June 13 may be made in the next few days. Bears hamper golfers play XniMAT, B.C. (CP) Seven grizzly bears have taken up residence on a golf course at Kemano, 50 miles south of here, and act as if they mean to stay. The bears came down from the mountains to feed on a nearby garbage dump and are giving golfers a bad case of the jitters. In a classic case of under- statement, conservation of- ficer Gerry Smythe says the golfers do have a problem. He says he win go to Ke- mano today to see what can be done.

Thirteen of the accused, in- cluding six women, were ar- rested June 30 as Canadian armed forces personnel, armed machine guns, and the RCMP boarded the converted United States minesweeper Marysville in lonely Quatsino Sound. Seven men from the Canadian fishboat Gondola were arrested the same day. However, it wasn't until July 5 that authorities found the drugs. A Canadian Armed Forces Corporal found 800 pounds of hashish and 200 pounds of marijuana stashed in green garbage bags under a log about 30 feet from the high water mark on the south side of the sound. Judge J. N. Bartman re- manded all 20 to July 17 to set a trial date. Bail of was set for Kenneth Henry Carpenter, 27, of north Vancouver.

Gov't election spending bill commended by MPs By STUART LAKE OTTAWA (CP) It took the Watergate scandal in the United States to convince the govern- ment the Canadian people will no longer "tolerate the non- sense" that went on in federal elections, Les Benjamin (NDP-Regina-Lake Centre) said Tuesday night. Mr. Benjamin joined Michael Forrestall Halifax East) in commending (be government on its bill to limit the spending of political patties and candidates in elec- tions and require public dis- closur eo ftfeose who donate or more to campaign funds. Government House Leader Al- lan MacEachen called the bill "the most comprehensive at- tempt to control election ex- penses taken in Canada so far." It would result, he said, in the "one of the most open and democratic elections in the world." In a rare burst of co-oper- ation, Mr.- Forrestall said the Conservatives are ready to con- clude second-reading debate by Thursday and send the bill to a committee for detailed study. Earlier the Commons gave second reading to a bill to halt the work of 10 provincial elec- toral boundaries commissions that have been adjusting Com- mons seats on the basis of the 1971 census. GET 18 MONTHS Under this bii the Commons will have 18 months to propose changes in the work of redistri' bution which has added three new seats in Ontario and Brit- ish Columbia but reduced the representation for five other provinces. It was the loss of seats in the less-populated areas and the added political power given to cities that caused most debate on the bill. John Diefenhaker (PC- Prince whose riding woubj have disappeared had re- distribution gone ahead as scheduled, said Mr. Justice R. L. Brownridge, head of the Saskatchewan boundaries com- mission, had political considera- tions in mind in drafting pro- posed new ridings in that prov- ince.

Canadian development aid to Zambia is "assistance to the people, not the government of Mr. Sharp said. Mr. Hales suggested the gov- ernment withhold future devel- opment grants and loans to Zambia until it receives a full explanation for the fatal shoot- ing of the two 19-year-okl Sinclair of Guelph, Ont., and Marjan Drij- ber of Rockwood, Ont They were killed by Zambian soldiers on the Rhodesian border near Victoria Falls. Mr. Sharp said the govern- ment is "still not satisfied' with the replies it has received from the Zambian government "I doubt very much, however, that we should penalize the pov- erty-stricken people of Zambia) ___ he said.

Troops were out in strength in iba centre of Montevideo Tues- day night and prevented a ond demonstration due to be foeJd in the wake of Monday's bloody clash the forces and demonstrators which left 150 persons injured.

It says they are necessary for development of the nuclear strike force that the late Presi- dent Charles de Gaulte spon- sored to enhance France's voice in world affairs.

Jack Homer (PC-Crowfoot) sounded a familiar theme in the debate when he said Parliament must ensure an effective politi- cal voice for rural areas. Andre FortSn (SC-Lotbi- niere) agreed, saying the Que- bec commission did not take into account that rural MPs must travel farther to serve small, scattered populations. WANTS LESS Mr. Benjamin said a previous government bill to limit election expenses did not deal with party spending. He disagreed with a provision of the new bill limiting parties to spending 30 cents for each eligible voter in each riding, where they have an official candidate. On the basis of 15 million vot- ers, that would allow the par- ties to spend million, he said. The amount should be cut to 20 cents a voter.

Edmonton gets grant overpayment CALGARY (CP) The City of Edmonton was paid too much in municipal assist- ance grants in the last two years, Municipal Affairs Min- ister Dave Russell Tues- day. "The total overpayment over the two-year period to Edmon- ton was Of that, Cat. gary's share would have been and the rest would have been divided accordingly among other municipalities." Mr. Russell said payment of municipal assistance grants is based on population figures. A check of Edmonton's popula- tion shows that in the last two years, the city of Edmonton re- ported inflated population fig- ures. He said the provincial gov- ernment is waiting to hear from the city of Edmonton about plans to rectify the error. "We have given the precise figures to Major Ivor Dant but we haven't beard back from him yet." Calgary Mayor Rod Sykes has suggested that the money owed Calgary should be re- bated.
