Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta -Wtdnitdoy, July 14, 1971 THE LETHBKIDGE HERALD 15 WASHOUT Workers toil to repair railway train washed out by floods this week on the Swan River in northern Alberta near where 65 persons were evacuated from their homes. Catholics hopping mad LONDONDERRY (CP) Angry crowds clashed with Brit- ish troops Tuesday in London- derry, a regular flashpoint of Northern Ireland violence, just as city authorities appealed for peace. Fighting broke out with rocks and bottles as workmen on their lunchtime break left the Ameri- can-owned Essex international plant. The plant already had been damaged by firebombs during the week of tension and bomb- ings that led up to Monday's giant July 12 marches, when U1 s t e r 's Protestant majority celebrated 50 years of partition from the Roman Catholic-domi- nated areas which now make up the Irish Republic. The plant, employing SOD, makes car components. Catholics among Londonder- ry's population have been seething since two civilians were shot dead by troops on riot duties last week. The army says the men were carrying weapons. Relatives say they were throwing only rocks and were not members of the outlawed Irish Republican Army. The IRA claimed responsibil- ity for the death of a British sol- iier shot as he stood oa sentry duty Monday. It said the soldier was executed in retaliation for the deaths of the two civilians. The old Mafia dead, gone forever ROME (AP) The old Mafia, once dreaded but called "the Honored is dead and gone forever, many Sicilians believe. In its place is a loosely-knit, get-rich-quick alliance of racket bosses and trigger- happy henchmen. It Inspires fear but it is nei- ther honored nor respected. And the recent exile of 31 of its reputed leaders to Italy's tiny islands has subjected it to ridicule. "The old said Pal- ermo chauffeur Franco Spag- nolo. "In its traditional role of patronage and defender of Si- cilian tradition it exists no more. "The oU Mafia never would have allowed the seizure of lands by peasants, the re- peated strikes by labor unions and the steadily increasing Communist vote." Said Orlando Scarlata, Pal- ermo editor of Italian TV: "The new Mafia deals in drugs, In contraband ciga- rettes, in building and labor permits. "This Mafia Is completely apnjt from the old tradition. It is impatient, reckless, seek- ing only to get rich quick. This type of Mafia may be feared, but it is not respected; it has no prestige." "When you speak of the Mafia you inevitably call up ancient, romantic images of men with their own code of said the Rome news- paper n Messaggero. "Litera- ture, fantasy and tradition have done the rest. "But this dangerous society now has gone from the shot- gun to the sub-machine-gun and from small-time black- niail to million-dollar fraud." Italians did not mourn the passing of the old-style society which stained its record with seven centuries of bloodshed for power and vengeance. But they did not welcome the new gangsterism which many Ital- ians felt had borrowed more from crime rings in North America than those rings bor- rowed front the old Mafia. Public demands for a crack- Four tires blow on airliner AMSTERDAM, The Nether- lands (CP) The pilot of an American jet carrying 175 pas- sengers managed to bring his plane to a halt just at the end of the runway when al! four tires on one side blew at takeoff. The airliner was a DC-8 of the Capital Airways charter com- pany, en route to Vancouver, with 175 passengers. The passengers returned by bus to the terminal and left sev- eral hours later in another air- craft. down flared throughout Italy last month when Mafia bullets felled the state's public prose- cutor in a Palermo street. In- terior Minister Franco Htt- tivo, himself a Sicilian, prom- ised new efforts to stamp out the criminal society, which he called "a dark and indomita- ble force of wicked aggres- sion." The courts used special powers in exiling 31 alleged Mafia chiefs to the bleak little islands of Linosa and Filicudi. Anti-Mafia laws allow Mafia suspects to be Jailed without formal arrest and to be de- ported without trial. Many Italians found a wry humor in the plight of the ex- iles. The victims bitter about it. "If Jesus Christ had been born in Palermo they would have said he was Mafia, too, and sent him into said Mafia suspect Giacomo Coppola as police herded him ashore on Fili- cudi. Some questioned the wisdom of getting the pre- sumed heads of Mafia gangs together with time on their hands and nothing to do but plot Said Giulio Greco, a profes- sional man: "Now that they're all to- gether there, they can plot in common and run a super- Mafia through orders sent to their henchmen on the out- side." An opposite possibility was put forward by Prof. Virgiiia Titone, dean of modern his- tory at the University of Pal- ermo. He said: "Put them to getlier there where they prob- ably will wipe each other out."
