Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta TOT AND .HUMID HIGH FORECAST FOR SATURDAY 92 The Utltbridge Herald VOL. LXIII No. 182 LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, FRIDAY, JULY 17, 1970 FEICE NOT OVER 10 CENTS TWO SECTIONS Blood Cites Three GOV.-GEN. MICHENER FORT MACLEOD Arrangements are complete here for an impressive and colorful induction cere- monial for three distinguished Canadians who will be- come honorary chiefs of the Blood Indian Tribe of the Blackfoot Confederacy on Sunday. They are the Rt. Hon. Roland Nichener, CC, CD, governor-general of Canada; Allen T. Lambert of Tor- onto, chairman of the board and president of the Tor- onto Dominion Bank and T. C. 'Tod' Haibeck of Leth- bridge, president of Haico Manufacturing Ltd. Governor-General Michener is to become Hon. Chief Running Antelope, the name formerly held by the late Rt. Hon. Vincent Massey, who became Canada's gov- ernor-general in 1952. E. R. McFarland, formerly of Lethbridge and now of Creston, B.C., who is Hon. Chief Heavy Shields and president of the Kainai Chieftainship, will be on hand with a host of other honorary chiefs of the Kainai. Chairman of the directorate is A. G. Swinarton of Fort Macleod. Membership in tha Kainai is restricted to 35 per- sons at any one time. The present membership is an impressive listing of notables from many parts of the world. Although the first initiation into the Kainai dates back to 1919, when His Royal Highness the Duke of Windsor was inducted, the Kainai Chieftainship wasn't officially organized until a Lethbridge meeting Dec. 13, 1950. The objective of the organization is listed to foster and propogate policy of future potential Canadian citi- lensMp. Ceremony At Standoff The constitution says the Kainai Band of Chieftain- ship is purely altruistic, organized solely for the bene- fit of the Blood Indians. It is non-sectarian and non- political. The aim is to render assistance toward a wider and higher system of education for the Indian, and is especially consigned to youth development endeavor, rendering and creating qualifying scholarhips, tenable to any official and accepted university for students of good repute. The new chiefs will be received at the borne of Mayor and Mrs. Ken Hurlburt of Fort Macleod at 10 a.m. on Sunday. This will be followed by a tour of the Fort Macleod replica, where'the governor-general will be presented with a special sculpture made by well- known Lethbridge artist Cornelius Martens. The guests will then be hosted at a barbecue luncheon at the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. G. Swinarton. The entourage will leave so that everything will be .in readiness for the induction ceremony at Standoff, 19 miles south of Fort Macleod on Highway 2 at p.m. The ceremony will be held at Stand-off and not at the usual Belly Buttes spot. The public is encouraged to attend the ceremony at Standoff where band coun- cillor Stephen Fox will be master of ceremonies. World Youth Assembly Big Flop By MAX HARRELSON UNITED NATIONS (AP) It is apparent the World Youth Assembly is not turning out the way its sponsors had hoped. Some diplomats are asking privately whether the United Nations blundered in setting up the meeting as part of tire organization's 25th anniversary. Many believe that the assembly, attended by some 600 representatives from 113 countries, has done little either for the image of youth or of the UN. One veteran diplomat described it as a parody on the performances of their elders in the UN General Assembly. The sponsors had hoped that the younger generation would offer fresh ideas for dealing with world problems and would perhaps be able to discuss them in a friendli- er atmosphere than the official spokesmen of govern- ments usually encounter. Instead, the assembly has at times been marked by ideological disputes, stereotyped speeches, procedur- al bickering and nearly chaotic conditions. Emphasis has been on political attacks rather than new approaches and steamroller tactics rather than conciliation. Some older observers were shocked by a lack of tolerance for opposition viewpoints. This was reflected in such actions as the refusal of the leftist-dominated: majority in the peace commission to hear representa- tives of South Vietnam, South Korea and Nationalist China. Oldsters also were disturbed by the lack of re- spect on the part of many for rules of procedure and by heckling and interruptions even during statements by presiding officers. One of the major problems was representatives, mainly from Communist countries or representing left- wing organization, who were far above the 25-year age limit suggested by the planners. Some of the partici- pants were described by protesters as "professional youth." Wesf farmers Shift Away Lrash Link OTTAWA (CP) -Transport Minister Donald Jamieson said Thursday there was a link be- tween a procedural failure in connection with a braking de- vice and the July 5 crash of the Air Canada stretched DC-8 at Toronto International Airport. "There appears to be unques- tionably some relationship be- tween that failure to follow pro- cedure and the he told reporters. He said the plane's ground devices on the not armed man- ually as they should have been at to feet as the air- craft came in for a landing. The arming process, it is un- derstood, means the setting of the ground spoiler's to begin then- function of deflecting au- to slow the plane down after it hits the runway. But the minister said it did no necessarily follow that the failure to arm the spoilers caused them to prematurely de- ploy at from 40 to 60 "could not attribute the cause of the crash to the procedural he said. Mr. Jamieson's initial state- ment Tuesday on the mishap gave no indication whether the improperly-used braking device or procedural n-alfunction ros> from pilot or mechanical error. NOTHING WRONG Mr. Jamieson said lie had is- sued his earlier statement on the crash before completion of the inquiry to ensure that cor- rect arming procedure was fol- lowed by pilots on similar air- craft in the future and to "show the public that there is nothing wrong with the aircraft." Asked whether he could defi- nitely state whether mechanical failure was not the cause of the premature functioning of the spoilers, Mr. Jamifison said the question involved conjecture rather than fact. He had been officially told there was no reason to ground .these aircraft, he said. From Money Crop-Wheat OTTAWA (CP) Prairie farmers have turned dramatically away from wheat their traditional money crop in the face of a supply glut, depressed prices and a new government program that pays cash for land left idle or used for cattle-fodder crops. The first official estimates of 1970 crop acreages, based on June 1 surveys and published Thursday by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics, indicates western farmers have slashed wheat acreages by more than BOTTOMS' Gordon Shrum, chairman of B.C.

(CP) The Canadian destroyer-escort Saguenay was pulled free of a mud bank today by two tugs, with the aid of a rising tide. The Saguenay, carrying a complement of 250, ran aground Thursday morning on the mud bank so_uth of a causeway link- ing this former coal-mining town with Port Hood Island, about a half-mile from shore. Labor Showdown _i Looms In B.C. 'If there's a postal slowdown, how come the bills keep VANCOUVER (CP) -A showdown between the British Columbia government and or- ganized labor loomed as a strong likelihood today. A special meeting of unions affiliated with the B.C. Labor Federation today was expected to give solid support to building trades unions who say they will defy a government request to end a three-month shutdown of the construction in- dustry. Meanwhile, the International Woodworkers of America was to serve strike notice today on 116 the companies served lockout notices on union locals Thursday. The exchange cleared the way for possible shutdown of the vital billion-dollar coastal forest industry early next week al- though neither the companies nor the union have indicated they actually plan such action. Special mediator Mr. Justice Nathan Nemetz of the B.C. Ap- peal Court is to start a study of the forest dispute Monday. The government has asked both sides to avoid precipitous ac- tions until the study is com- plete. Labor Minister Leslie Peter- son has threatened that the gov- ernment will use its controver- sial, once-tented compulsory set- tlement powers if work does not resume after midnight tonight. The Construction Labor Rela- tions Association, bargaining agent for too contractors, this week ended its lockout of workers the minister's request. But nine building .which have never been on strike they will not return with- out new contracts. Under the mediation act, workers refusing to obey orders to return to work would be sub- ject to fines or jail sentences. CABINET MAY MEET Premier W. A. C. Bennett has indicated that, if necessary, a cabinet meeting would be held Saturday to pass orders-in-coun- cil to set the compulsory settle- ment machinery in motion.

LOWEST IN YEARS Otto Lang, minister responsi- ble for the wheat program, said he expects the final tally will show a total Prairie wheat acreage of about The indicated totals would re- turn western wheat acreages to a range that prevailed before the First World cropland was still being opened up and statistics were first com- piled. Until this year, wheat acreages have never since dropped much below Even during a previous eash- for-fallow program in the Sec- ond World War, wheat acreage on the Prairies remained above at the lowest ebb in 1943. Last year, the acreage on the Prairies was about and 'bushels of wheat were produced on that land1. Just three years ago, wheat was sown on a record of almost acres. Based on an estimated yield of 25 bushels an acre, the indi- cated area for wheat this year would produce a maximum of bushels, less than half last year's. Canadian farmers thus would b e contributing substantially more than their chief competi- tors in meeting the over-supply problem. Australia has reduced its de- livery quotas this year by about 13 per cent to bushels from last year. Lat- est crop estimates- in the United States, issued July 1, indicate a reduction by about seven per a year to a wheat crop of bushels from last year. Thursday's estimates indicate that Canadian Prairie land rested in summerfallow has been expanded to a record acres, up by acres from tire previous record last year.

Can- Jiuiior Football Player Killed RED DEER (CP) Daniel James Hazlett, 19, of the nearby Balmoral district, died of carbon monoxide poisoning when a car he was in was left running in a garage at the family farm. He was a member of the Red Deer Packers of the Alberta Junior Football League. ada currently has a stockpile of about bushels of two years' supply for domestic and export sales.

Tte government budgeted a maximum for the project, which would have meant virtual cessation of wheat production on the Prai- ries. PEDRO ARAMBURU Police Find Body Of Ex-Premier BUENOS AIRES (AP) The Argentine government an- nounced today that the body of former president Pedro E. Aramburu, kidnapped May 29, has been found. Rodolfo Baltierrez, the presi- dent's press secretary, called a pre-dawn news conference to say that a decomposed body .found by police buried in the basement of a farmhouse was that of 67-year-old Aramburu. "The president has decreed a state funeral with military and civil honors corresponding to a president of a nation killed in the exercise of his Bal- tierrez said... Final identification was made early today by doctors who ex- amined the body after it was brought to Buenos Aires from the village of Timote, 300 miles west of, here, Baltierrez re- ported. Police said the farm is owned by Gustavo Francisco Ramus, whose 22-year-old son was ar-. rested in a Buenos Aires suburb Thursday with two other youths. Doctors said the body of the once tall and elegantly dressed former president was so decom- posed that identification could be made only on the basis of dental work, a birthmark and the scar of an old operation. Quebec Premier Won't Move Despite Bomb QUEBEC (CP) Premier Robert Bourassa says he has no intention of moving from the Victoria Hotel, his usual resi- dence in Quebec City, despite the discovery Thursday night of a small bomb placed near the door. "I will not change my hotel, not even my the pre- mier told reporters today. The bomb, composed of two half-sticks of dynamite, a deto- nator and a clock mechanism, was dismantled by Quebec City police after two passers-by spot- ted five persons placing a pack- age near the hotel. The armed forces placed Gen. Aramburu in power in Novem- ber, 1955, six weeks after for- mer president Juan Peron was overthrown. Aramburu's 30- month regime was character- ized by harsh repression of Pe- ronists, including the execution of 27 Peronists who attempted a coup. He was a candidate to be president again when he disap- peared. A law decreed a few days after Aramburu's disappear- ance legalized the death penalty for kidnappers. The police say that at least two, accused of the kidnapping received "Communist training in Cuba." They are Fernando Luis Abal Medina, 23, a student, and Esther Norma Arrostiti, 30, a teacher. Both are still being sought. Abal Medina was de- scribed as the ringleader of the kidnappers. Twenty young persons have been arrested during the Inves- tigation, Alberta Cadets Return Sad But Wiser Middle East Situation Dangerous By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Egypt and the Soviet Union called the Middle East situation "very dangerous" today and an- nbunced that they will strengthen their co-operation in political economic and defence fields. In a joint communique issued at the windup of Egyptian Pres- ident Gamal Abdel Nasser's 19- day visit to Moscow, the two governments said the danger re- sults from "Israel's unceasing armed attacks against the U.A.R. (Egypt) and other Arab countries." Calling for a speedy settle- ment of the Middle East con- flict, the communique said the Soviet Union and Egypt believe "the sooner peace-loving forces compel Israel to give up its prospectless policy .'from posi- tions of strength', in respect to the Arab peoples, the sooner a just and lasting peace will, be ensured. EDMONTON (CP) Twen- ty-seven Royal Canadian Air Cadets and their five chap- erones and wives arrived here today by Canadian Forces Her- cules after being temporarily stranded in Los Angeles since Monday because of a hoax. The cadets, from Alberta, British Columbia and the Yukon, arrived in the California city early Monday expecting to Stabbed To Death At Convention CHICAGO (AP) An 18- year-old girl attending a con- vention was found stabbed to death early today in a down- town hotel, and a room-mate was seriously wounded. Police said Evelyn Okubo, 18, of Stockton, Calif., was found dead in the bathtub of her room with her hands and feet tied be- hind her. The young woman's throat had been slashed and shs had been slabbed in the men, police said. The second girl, Carol Ya- mada, 17, also in Stockton, was taken to hospital where she was reported in poor condition. Po- lice said her throat also had been slashed, and she also was found bound hand and foot. All three girls, members of the Junior Japanese-American Citizens League, were in Chi- cago attending the 21st biennial National Japanese-American Citizens League convention at the hotel be guests of Lockheed Aircraft Co. It turned out the company knew nothing about the arrange- ment. Capt. Vern Cottrell of CFB Edmonton said the boys waited six hours at the airport while he and other leaders tried to locate Lockheed officials for the start of what was to be a tour of Los Angeles, Washington, N.ew York and several other centres. Capt. Cottrell said the boys were told about the hoax after Oiey had been taken to the home of Maj. Walter Liddell of the Los Angeles-San Diego Civil Air Patrol. ARRANGED EXCHANGE Maj. Liddell and Capt. Ron Garton, commanding officer of the Athabasca 230 Squadron RCAC, bad arranged the ex- change of air cadets. The Canadian cadets, ranging in age from 14 to 18 years, were to go to California to see how the patrol worked and the American cadets came to Atha- basca for northern survival trails. The U.S. cadets flew here Friday. Capt. Garton decided to ask a former air force friend to see if Lockheed would underwrite the Canadian cadets' trip. He thought the friend, Claude Phriffrom, worked for Lock- heed's public relations office. He phoned the office, and was given another number to phone. He received a letter from Phriffrom, two weeks after call- ing to ask about it, saying Lock- heed had agreed. "Unfortunately that's the let- tef that has been Capt. Garton said. "I can't find it anywhere." TELEPHONE UNUSED Capt. Garton said he has talked with the general mana- ger of Lockheed several limes this week but the answer re- mains that Mr. Phriffrom has never worked for Lockheed. And the telephone number he was given is is in a bank of unsubscribed Los Ange- les numbers. "I have no theories on who pulled this hoax saying Lock- heed would pay the bills." Air fares and hotel bills are expected to be as much as Capt. Garton said the provincial and federal air cadet leagues have agreed to see that everyone is paid.
