Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 17, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta SHOWERS HIGH FORECAST TUESDAY 70. The LetHbridae Herald VOL. LXV-No. LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, MONDAY, JULY 17, 1972 PRICE NOT OVER 10 CENTS TWO SECTIONS 18 PAGES Thousands launch Whoop-Up Days Parade launches fair in colorful fashion Allies not even safe from U.S. super spy net SAN FRANCISCO (SP-AP) Government officials have declined comment on a Ramparts magazine arti- cle which says U.S. intelligence can pinpoinl the loca- tion of Soviet military and space craft and monitor every transatlantic telephone call. The magazine also suggests that Canada is not re- ceiving its fair share of material under an uitelligence- sharirg agreement signed with the United States in 1947 and that the U.S. monitors Canadian diplomatic and other security communications. The Western While. House in San Clemenle, Calif., C defence dtp; 'i Washington n spokes- man for the Natio-iEl btcurily al Meade, Md., would noi respond to the article entitled U.S. Espionage: A Memoir. The article, appearing in lire August issue of the magazine which went on news-stands today, is based on an interview with a man said lo be a former NSA analyst. The former analyst, identified by a spokesman for the magazine ES Winslow Peck, a pseudonym, is quoted as saying flights over Russian territory are made routinely by jets "which climb high enough to reach the edge of outer space." The Ramparts article said the United States moni- tors government in the world, including its allies, and listens in on all transatlantic telephone calls to or from the U.S., even those by private citi- zens. "As fas as the Soviet Union is concerned we know the whereabouts at any given time of all its aircraft, exclusive of small private planes, and its naval forces, including its missile-firing the former analyst said in the article. "The fact is that we're able lo break every code they've got, understand every type of communications equipment and enciphering device they've he added. The article refers lo a 1947 treaty signed by the United States, Canada, Britain, Australia and New Zealand. The agreement provides for an interchange of in- formation by the signatories, Peck said. "Of course it doesn't work out this way. "As il works oul, (he Ircaty is a one-way street. We violate it even with out second-party allies which the magazine says includes Canada by monitoring their communications constantly." "I know we also monitor their diplomatic stuff con- stantly." The article the U.S. is able to monitor allies' communications because "they're all working wilh machines we gave Iliem."

The gala march paraded through the down- lown area and dispersed along 4th Ave. heading east about 12lh St. By RON CALDWELL Herald Staff Writer Hundreds took part and thousands watched as that wild, weird, wonderful celebra- tion kr-3wn as Lethbridge's Whoop-Up Days whipped into high gear this morning. The kick-off parade wound ils way Ihrough Ihe downtown area for about 90 minutes as spectators crowded the side- walks for the best viewing po- sition. Some of the more enlerpris- ing managed lo scurry lo roof- lops along Ihe parade roule. A number of 3rd Ave. business- men even got inlo the swing of lliings by bringing out chairs for some of the oldersters who wanted lo see the festivities.

However, until the results of an autopsy conducted Saturday are known, other causes of death, such as a knife or bullet wound, are not being ruled out, a Lethbridge RCMP spokes- man said this morning. ''The body was so badly de- composed such wounds might net he said. It was fully clothed. The blonde, 16 year old was reported missing June 27, when she failed to return homo from a Mend's house in I-Iardieville late in the evening. Her body was discovered Fri- day evening by a farmer who was mowing grcss. A Lethbridge man, David William Threinen. 24, of SOB llth St. S., has been charged with non capital murder in the case. He was arrested early Saturday morning and was charged in Lethbridge provin- cial judge's court the samo day. He was to appear again today at 2 p.m. In reply to the dead girl's par- ents' criticism that Angela's disappearance had been treat- ed as just another run away case, police said the case was under constant investigation by both the cily police and the RCMP. "Many leads had lo be fol- lowed out during our invest iga- tion, each telephone tip or re- port from persons who thought they had seen the missing girl had to he said the RCMP official. "When we received the re- port there were those who thought the girl had simply disappeared, others suspected a crime had been involved, but we had no evidence to support either the official said. "The parents p.-nd tlie public were probably not aware of the effort placed in the investiga- tion two constables were practically working full time on the he said. The investigation lead to Thrcinen on July 12, two days before the body was discover- ed. Although an extensive search for the missing girl was car- ried out with a police dog and later with in aircraft the body was not discovered.

Several of the more ex- perienced parade watchers came prepared with lawn chairs, pillows and other as- sorted comforters. The participants were as varied as the crowd. Brownies and 4-H youngsters took part as well as memrers of the Golden Acres Lodge and the Pemmican Club. Marching bands came from as far away as Bellevue, Wash, and Collingwood, Ont. The City of Regina was represented along with Calgary, Edmonton and Medicine Hat. The regular parade cortege was augmented by a large German Shepherd dog who barged into the middle of things early and stayed until the end. About 40 city police officers were on hand patrolling the parade route on foot, horse- back, motorcycle and in cars. The floats were colorful and Imaginative, the taining and professional.

'Guilty' LOD, Israel (Reuter) Japa- nese terrorist Kozo Okamoto was found guilty today of par- ticipating in the Lod airport massacre on May 30 in which more than 100 persons were killed or injured. He was sen- tenced to life imprisonment. However, the Israeli military prosecutor r.skcd the court to sentence Okamoto to life imoris- onmenl, forsaking the death penally. The verdict of guilty was in- evitable not only because of Hie overwhelming weight of mate- rial evidence produced during the trial last week but also in view of Okamoto's open claim in court to rcsponsibilitv for the attack by a three-man Japanese suicide squad.

Miniely slashes borrowing by half CALGARY (CP) The Pro- gressive Conservative govern- ment has cut more than half its original estimate of borrow- ing required for the current SI.369 billion Alberta budget, Provincial Treasurer Gordon Miniely says. Mr. Miniely said in an inter- view the government now must go to the market for only 550 million, to S75 million instead of the million originally esti- mated. The dramatic reduction in required borrowing is due to sweeping money management reforms carried out by his de- partment, he said. "We institued two or three basic changes not a BLT centralized cash management which have improved our over-all financial situation." He said he and his deputy have even been able to cancel a planned trip to European money markets because the smaller amount doesn't have to be borrowed for several months. "The improvements have al- lowed us flexibility to ride out the current period of relatively high interest rates for an extra five or six months in the hope rates will come down slightly." Prison officials about break' liy STEVE HUMMELL Kingston Whig-Standard MTLLHAVEN, Or.t. (CP) Warden J. D. Clark of Mill- haven penitentiary denied today that prison authorities had been warned before last Monday's es- cape of 14 prisoners that a mass prison break would take place. Mr. Clark was commenting in an inlerview on charges by a correctional officer at the maxi- mum-security Institution who said a convict informer had warned prison authorities of the break. The correctional officer, who wished to remain, anony- mous, said a convict addicted to "pills" offered to tell authorities "something big" last Monday if they supplied him with drugs. The officer said the informer was given drugs and then told authorities at 7 p.m. EDT there would be a "big break" later that night. But authorities did not believe the man, the officer said. At about 10 p.m. that night, 14 prisoners were found missing when a head count was made following a Softball game at the prison. MADE NO DEAL Mr. Clark said, however, that the statements made by the guard were "completely un- true" and no deal was made with any prisoner for informa- tion. The correctional officer said one prisoner, who became con- fused about the time proposed for the break and missed his chance to slip through the Grits plan program for aged C1 SMITH FALLS, Ont.

But he said the prisoner did not require hospital treatment. The correctional officer said another prisoner informer told authorities at 8 p.m. shortly after the "suicide" attempt that a break was planned. But the officer said guards were told only to keep extra alert, but no other action was taken. Unhappy fallers balk at contract VANCOUVER (CP) Tha war between union and manage- ment in the British Columbia forest industry appeared over today, but there is still a battle raging that could leave both sides without any timber to sell or jobs to go to. Although the International Woodworkers of. America, rep- resenting coast workers, and Forest Industrial Relations, which bargains for 115 timber companies, have agreed on a new master contract. 800 union fallers have rejected their chunk of the package. They went on strike in mid- months before the rest of the IWA's coast division left their jobs June hack demands for a standard pricing formula for the Irees they fall. However, the IWA negotiating team obtained a flat rale of a day for the fallers in its nego- tiations with FIR to replace the last collective agreement, which expired June 15. The fallers re- jected that deal by a margin of more than 90 per cent. 'Which pails still like each ;
