Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THI lETHBRIDG! HERAID loturdny, July 15, 197J FROM OUT OF THE PAtT One of 12 competing crafts in the Weslern Canadian Soaring Championships at Claresholm during the past week was a vintage, 1930 wood and fabric construction glider, owned by the Card- item loaring club. The early glider was purchased by members of the club for only but had to be ex- tensively rebuilt. Although the craft lacks the perform- ance capabilities of more lophisticated and newer craftj, several glider pilot: In the competition agreed it was a fine ship, and in some ways was even more sensitive to air currents than the newer high performance crafts. The vintage craft weighs lesi than 500 pounds. (Larry Bennett photo See itory and picture page 14.) Seven months from Jupiter Pioneer 10 enters danger zone MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (Reuter) Pioneer 10, hurtling towards Jupiter and the first voyage by a spacecraft into outer space begins today the most dangerous part of its mis- sion. It enters the 175-mlllion-mile- wide asteroid belt, a giant doughnut-shaped ring around the sun of flying meteoroids and particles. National Aeronautics and Space Administration officials see no chance of the little spacecraft colliding with any of the monster meteoroids. These are visible from earth and their positions known. What they are worried about is particles about one-fiftieth of an inch across hitting the space- craft at miles an hour. "At that speed even tiny par- ticles could do serious dam- Minor missile mishap PARIS (Reuter) France unveiled Friday, with some em- barrassment, an addition to its nuclear arsenal. The intermediate-range mis- sile, part of a French nuclear strike force along with Mirage strategic bombers and nuclear submarines, was the highlight of the annual Bastille Day pa- rade. But official faces flushed when the truck carrying equip- ment for Its 150-Mloton warhead down the Champs Elysees broke down in front of President Georges Pompidou. It finally sputtered away In clouds of exhaust fumes, only to stall again a little farther along the avenue. a NASA spokesman said. Pioneer 10, launched last March to lake man's first close look at the giant planet Jupiter, is the only space craft ever to enter the asteroid belt. It will take seven months to cross the belt and will fly past Jupiter on Dec. Part of its mission will be to photograph giant asteroids not visible from the earth and to assess what hazards the aster- oid belt Is going to present for future space missions. NASA scientists put its chances of getting through the asteroid belt unscathed at 90 per cent.

MacDonald, a Cape Breton coal miner at 17, and now head of the Canadian Labor Con- Guild breaks tradition; backs senator MIAMI BEACH (API Bi caking nearly 40 years of a no-endorsement tradition, the president of tho AFL-CIO News- paper Guild endorsed Thursday the presidential candidacy of Democratic Senator George McGovern. His move brought quick protest from members. Charles Pertik walked Into a crowd of reporters In Mc- Govern's press room and an- nounced that "compelling human reasons" had forced the union to break with its long his- tory of political neutrality. His short statement was met by wide protest from many newspaper men covering the McGovern campaign. Some of them told Perllk such an en- dorsement put them in a "horri- bly embarrassing" situation. Others strongly question the propriety of an assertion of newspaper men favoring any single political candidate. PerlLk said the guild's annual convention two weeks ago au- thorized him to make the en- dorsement. year term which is renewable. MacDonald, G2, a member of. the Nova Scotia legislature with the old Co-Operative Common- wealth Federation (CCF) pnrty from 1941 to 1945, has to deal Immediately with proposals for a 16-nalion European regional body which would be virtually independent of the main organi- zation. He had hoped to stop the trend toward this kind of Euro- pean autonomy during the con- gress. He succeeded only to the extent of having the matter re- ferred to the executive council for further study before action is taken. MacDonald and many others fear an independent Eu- ropean body would lepd to disin- tegration of the ICFTU. Bangladesh aid okayed OTTAWA (CP) Canada has allocated an additional S3 mil- lion to buy and ship more wheat to Bangladesh, the Canadian in- ternational development agency announced here.

(CP) An intensive manhunt for seven es- caped prisoners still at large from last Monday's breakout at Ihc Millliaven penitentiary near here has expanded to two fronts. Ottawa police confirmed Fri- day that two of the 14 who cut their way tlirough a fence Mon- day were in Ottawa. They said they might be armed. Seven were recaptured earlier.

ICELANDER HOPEFUL The only senior official with an attitude of unqualified optim- was the president of the Iceland Chess Federation, Gudmundur Thorareinsson. He said he was firmly convinced the match would continue here. It now is up to Fischer to decide whether to break off the lucrative world chess and severely jeopardize his chess to swallow his annoyance at having to forfeit the second game last Thursday and try to stage a comeback at the chess board, he said. If he chooses the latter course, there is one outstanding problem to settle. Fischer is still demanding the removal of television cameras placed around the stage by U.S. busi- n e s s m a n Chester Fox, who holds (lie exclusive rights to vis- ual coverage of the event. Fis- cher says they distract him. But Fox is not willing to re- move them.

Justice Minister Otto Lang has said tiie amendments ore part of continuing government efforts to keep abreast of the changing mood and needs of the country and its laws. About three years ago, thp Trudeau government made its first sweeping changes in tho Criminal Code. Most attention went to those dealing with hom- osexuals and Mr. Trudeau's statement that me government had no business in the bedrooms of the nation. In this second major over- haul, the most prominent changes have been the new of- fence of a maximum penalty of life im- doing away with the whip in jail sentences. While there Is no common theme to the changes, a number can be traced to recent terrorist activities in Quebec and the re- sulting court actions. Example: A witness in a Montreal court refused to give testimony, saying that Quebec courts discriminate against women by not allowing them to serve on juries on the same basis as men. The new laws effective put women on the same footing as men in jury duty. The practice of giving women an option to serve or not to serve is aban- doned. A second change arising from Quebec trials is new offence of revealing to others the dis- cussions in a jury room. This now is punishable by up to six months in jail.
