Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta July 1t7J 7HI HTHMIDOI KfKAlft 17 'Little green man said buried in Texas cemetery DALLAS, Tex. (AP) Wal- ter H. Andrus, an investigator of unidentified flying objects has been told to go to court if he wants permission to dig into a grave. Andrus had appealed to the Aurora, Tex., Cemetery Associ- ation to allow a check to be made of a grave to see whether it contains the body of the pilot of a UFO. Williams Nobeb, lawyer for the cemetery group, said the association has no'authority to give such permission. He said the UFO investigators will have to get a court order before "they go digging people up." Investigators began looking at the Aurora graveyard several ago after reports of the crash of a spaceship in 1897 were revived from newspapers of that time. The reports said the pilot of the spaceship was buried in the graveyard after his spaceship- collided with a windmill and ex- ploded. Andrus, executive director of the Midwest Unidentified Flying Object Network (MUFON) said in an interview in Dallas this week that he is close to being convinced such a crash occur- red, on the basis of available evidence. During the investigation, scraps of metal called "highly unusual" and "puzzling" by re- searchers were found at the re- ported crash site. They have been submitted to laboratory tests. And a grave that some say may be that of a UFO pilot reg- isters the same readings on a metal detector as did metal found at the supposed crash site, investigators say. Andrus said other evidence was persuasive. "Texas was literally loaded down with sightings at that time he said, and noted that people at the time thought someone had developed an air- ship. "Were these thousands of people having Reports from the 1890s de- scribed cigar-shaped or diri- gible-type aircraft, be said. During the most recent mass sitings of UFOs, in August, 1985, the objects were reported to be disk-shaped, he said. Andrus said old reports that the Aurora pilot was dis- membered are disquieting. "If there actually was an ex- plosion, it's likely the pilot would have been be said. "The reports don't men- tion this. "Also, the reference to his size fall into the 'little green man' Andrus said. The investigator said his group has doctors and patbolo- gists standing by in case ex- humation is allowed. Science ministry to propose new plan University research funding to be revamped OTTAWA The federal sci- ence ministry is putting the fi- nal touchss to an all-encom- passing plan to shake-up the present scheme of federal fund- ins of university research. For academics across the country, it contains some bad news and probably, in toto, con; siderably more good news.. According to sources in gov- ernment, it would involve the creation of a totally new fund- ing mechanism, to complement the present duality of grants and contracts for research from Ottawa and to allow Ca- nadian Science to tackle some major national programs of re- search. And it would propose to re- place the present three federal granting councils with a larger, more-coordinated and more ac- tive structure consisting of five granting councils. It would have research spread out more evenly across the country, both in terms of geography and language. It would extend the year-old contracting out policy, whereby federal departments and agencies'contract out new re- search to industry, to univer- sities. And it would permit the handling of unsolicited propos- als from universities and in- dustry under contracting out. It would see awards and con-i tracts to university standard- ized, along with the ways of as- sessing research proposals and activities fttoded by Ottawa. K would involve Ottawa pay- ing more of the "overhead" costs of federally-funded re- search. And it would leave a grey area between applied and basic research instead of limiting grants to basic research and contracts to applied research. Finally, when it comes to grants, k would maintain the freedom for the researcher to do what he pleases. But Ottawa, through its decisions on how funds are split up between areas of science, would take a more active role in determining what general science is done. The package proposal is go to cabinet, for consideration, later this sum- mer. The science ministry has been studying the whole area of federal funding of university re- search for more than a year. The two newest and perhaps most controversial proposals in- volve the new funding mecha- nism and the structure of the granting councils. The proposed new funding mechanism, government sources say, would involve the creation of special national re- search institutes. These institutes or consortia would tackle such national problems as transportation, ma- rine technology, undersea re- source exploitation or perhaps northern pipeline technology. In many instances, they would involve federal, provin- cial and even industrial ex- pertise and facilities, in con- junction with university man- power and resources. 1n instances, they might be what one official described as "paper is, including groups in various cities and institutions scattered across a province or even the country. In tills way, better use could be made of existing scientific resources and of existing ex- pensive scientific facilities. Also, Canada could then focus her best scientific talents on specific programs of national interest. As one official put it, the con- cept would be an important part of a larger shift away from the "ivory tower" research of the past, towards more re- search on societal problems. Just as important, these in- stitutions would have fixed life- times. They would be created as the need arises and de- stroyed when the job is done. Without the physical buildings being constructed especially for such institutes, this termination would be easier. Canada at present does not have any national program of consolidated efforts on major research and development thrusts such as the Arctic, space, transportation, marine technology and the urban envi- ronment, one official explained. Ottawa would propose to fill this gap by providing the "core financial support for a "net- work of new centres of research and sometimes called centres of excellence. Federal and provincial de- partments and agencies might provide some of the usually existing such institutes. Universities would provide much of the manpower. And in some cases, industry would be involved. As an example, one federal official said he could foresee an Atlantic marine technology in- stitute drawing resources from the federal Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Dalhousie, from the marine departments and laboratories at Dalhousie University, Memorial Univer- sity, and the University of New Brunswick, and from Maritime industrial concerns like Hermes Electronics. Another possibility could be an Arctic Institute, using ex- perts from universities and pri- vate institutes in Winnipeg, Ed- monton, Montreal and Calgary. This would be an example of an "institute on since the resources being tapped would be spread across the country. Such an Arctic Institute might tackle problems of exploiting resources under the Arctic ice or studying oil and gas trans- portation in the north using pipelines. Ottawa would intend to use these institutes to spread re- search in Canada around more than it has been in the past, and to get away from the con- centration of federally-funded research in Ontario. The approach would also be used to get more research done by French-language stienUsta. 300 SUNGLASSES to choose from AVAILABLE IN YOUR RX Grits deny complacency over spiralling prices By STEWART MacLEOD OTTAWA (CP) By every- one's admission, the minority Liberal government has been losing points over the Inflation issue, as it a low profile amid loud opposition demands for action. government plans to fight back. "What we have to get said one source, "is that in some cases the most ef- fective action is non-action." Each time Statistics Canada reports another increase in the cost of living-4ffld this happens with monotonous, monthly regu- oppoition tears after the government. And Prime Minister Trudeau and his ministers, with the same regu- larity, say, in effect, they are watching the situation but there are no new policies to announce at the moment. One Liberal MP says the re- sult is that many Canadians might feel the government is complacent about the problem "and nothing could be further from the truth." CALLS FOR FREEZE Conservative Leader Robert SanfieW has been calling for a 90-day freeze on prices and wages, and until now the gov- ernment has appeared some- what defensive in the face of the suggestion. But, sources say, a counter-attack will be coming. A background documents is being prepared to provide Lib- eral MPs with the story of in- flation, the world-wide causes and effects, the results of meas- ures taken-in other countries, the relative performance of ma- jor countries in the battle against inflation, and other re- lated subjects. But. in particular, ft will tee off on the Conservative proposal for a temporary freeze, citing the experience in the U.S., where a price freeze has created problems. The document win contain statistics about the number of cattle, pigs and chicken slaugh- tered because fanners say they couldn't afford to feed them un- der the freeze, and there will be reference to the reported dos- ing of 16 US. meatpacking plants. The document likely wffl pro- vide Liberal MPs with a surplus of political ammunition to use against the Conservative pro- posal for a temporary freeze. "ft has been a difficult story to get said an MP. "So far we've been saying only that keeping an eye on the and that9a not good enough for the average person who sees his food bfll rising ev- ery month." Another said "so far we haven't even been able to get across the fact that the Cana- dian performance on inflation is about the best in the world." The government's counter-et- tack is expected to begin in about two weeks, when the document is available to MPs, and they'll have all summer to spread the message. Burundi genocide said continuing By CHARLES MOHR New York Times Service NAIROBI, Kenya Refu- gees from Burundi assert that systematic killing of Hutu peo- ple by the minority Tutsi peo- ple is continuing on a large scale, unknown to 'most for- eign and diplomatic observers in that central African coun- try. A number of foreign travel- lers and diplomatic reports, in contrast, said that Burundi seemed relatively quiet in re- cent days after a serious out- break of incidents in mid-May. There is little doubt about one major factor in the trag- ALL MERCHANDISE IN THE STORE Men., Tun., Wed, July 16, 17 and 18 MACLEOD FAMILY SHOPPING CENTRE CENTRE VILLAGE MALL edy. IWs is that passionately militant Hutu student refugees are persisting in attempts to organize and encourage Hutu raids into Burundi territory and now seen wholly ted to a goal of ovaUuwlng the predominately Tutsi gov- ernment of President Michel Such action is deplored by some observers, including a mmfaer of Hutuleaders in the neighboring country of Rwan- da, on grounds that toe ill- prepared revolts and raids have contributed to what one man called "a psychotic fear and hatred" among the Tuteis and have brought harsh repri- sals on simple. Hutu peasants. Imposing some degree of re- straint on the Hutu student leaders has become, onicthj, a major goal of officials in anda and in Zaire, which border both countries to the west, and in Tanzania to the east. Burundi and Rwanda are mirror images of each other insofar as some key elements in the national picture are re- versed in the two landlocked countries, each about the size of Vermont. In each country, Tutsi's who are tali and finely featured, made up about IS per cent of lhe population. For many turies tutsi monarchs and aristocracy held the majority Hutns, a Banta group of srnaH- stature, in virtual serfdom.
