A plywood granary, a wind- mill and some unused buildings were destroyed but most of the winds blew through grain and summerfallow fields.

No one was injured. work in the central sector of the water, a spokesman said. The plane was the fourth loss the Israelis say they have suf- fered since discovery of a con- centration of the Soviet-built missiles within 15 miles of the waterway. The three previous planes were brought down by the mis- siles, during attacks on the sites. There was no immediate statement from the Israeli mili- tary whether the fourth had also been downed by a missile. Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Abba Eban of Israeli denounced a declaration by the Soviet Union that it will increase politi- cal economic and military sup- port to Egypt to counter Israeli "aggression." Eban said Friday tat the So- viet E7in'our.eement, issued as a communique by the Moscow news agency Taes, contained coining new and "clearly shows the enmity the Soviet Union hjirbcrs against Israel." "It seems to be clear feit the Soviet Union is not set on Hie course for he said. The aimouiicemoit, mads at the ccnelusion of 19 days cf talks in Moscow between Presi- dent Gamel Abdel Nasser of End Soviet leaders, said that Israel's "aggressive, ex- pansionist policy became possi- ble orjy as a result of invaria- ble support byimperialist quarters, first of all the United Sates." Pot Of Gold Discovered In Old Barracks Attic FRIDAY HARBOR, Wash. (AP) A pot cf gold has been discovered in the attic of an old British Army barracks on San Juan Island, site of the British- American Pig War. The pot, found by a National Park Service crew, contained gold pieces and other coins and currency dating to 1853. Rota Anderson, 91, who lives nearby, had told crew members in advance they might make such a discovery. Her father, an early homesteader on the is- land, had told his daughter shortly before his death that he had hidden the money in the early 1900s. The park service crew turned the treasure over to Mrs. An- derson Friday. She said she'll deposit it in a Seattle bank.

The barracks in which the pot was stashed was erected on the north end of the island, which is tucked into a corner of the an- gular international boundary be- tween Canada and the United States. It was built in 1859 by the British before the border was determined. The British troops had been sent after a U.S. Army contin- gent set up headquarters to pro- tect Lyman A. Cutler, an Amer- ican settled who had shot a pig he said was rooting up his po- tato patch. The pig's owner, Briton Charles Griffin of the Hudson's Bay Company, had sailed north to Victoria, B.C., and secured Gov. James Doug- las's warrant for Cutler's ar- rest. Cutler made known his plight to U.S. Gen. William Harney, who stationed U.S. troops on San Juan. The British and Americans endured the cold war without a for the one that had killed the 12 years until, in 1872, an arbitrator made his decision. The arbiter, Kaiser Wilhelm I of Germany determined the San Juan Island should be U.S. property, thus ending the war.

The chief of New York City's police bomb squad told senators here that bomb-making plans appeal- in underground news- papers, magazines and leaflets distributed throughout the city, especially among college, high school and, recently, junior high school students. Lieut. Kenneth O'Neil told the Senate's investigations subcom- mittee that the publications range from crude mimeograph flyers to highly-sophisticated manuals for constructing explor, sive devices. After the devastating explo- sion last spring which destroyed an apparent bomb factory in' a, Greenwich Village townhouse, he said, leaflets circulated in New York warning those who might be tempted not to risk dangerous do-it-yourself bomb production. Making bombs, the anonymous leaflet said, should be left to those familiar with chemistry and laboratory, tech- niques. Earlier, New York's top po- liceman, Commissioner Howard Leary, told the committee that bombings have multiplied sud- denly in the last 18 months. "We can say the present crop of explosive devices, in the main, represent distorted peti- tions for redress of Leary said after describing the blast that caused extensive de- struction to his own police haed- quarters last June 9. He urged congressional adop- tion of a series of new federal laws, including one providing far the inclusion of indestructi- ble bits of-coded metal inside explosives to enable police to trace their origin. Raymond Observes Memorial Day By DELIA WOOLF Herald News Service RAYMOND citi- zens were joined by many visit- ors who came to the Memorial Decoration Day services. Buddhists gathered at Temple Hill Cemetery at 11 a.m. for the first service. Rev. Leslie Kawamura officiated. Mayor Lyman H. Jacobs led the chapel service at 7 p.m. at the Taylor Stake LDS Church. Mrs. A. G. Evans paid tribute to pioneers who came and built the town of Raymond and to those who have followed. She left a challenge with the audience when she said: "Are we doing our part to carry on where they left Mrs. Evans proposed a trib- ute to two community-minded women, Mrs. Louis Brandley and Mrs. M. R. Woolf. Mrs. Brandley has been ill for some time. She is confined to a wheel chair but conducts her activ- ities for the community with the aid of her family. A member of the Ladies Lit- erary Society, sponsor of the Memorial Decoration Day ser- vices, Mrs. Brandley has made the day a town tradition. The two women were presented with gifts, Mrs. Woolf for her work at Temple Hill Cemetery, Robert Brandley took his theme from a well-known au'.h- or, Antoine de Saint Exupery, who has said "it is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is in- visible to the eye." Special musical numbers were sung by the Raymond La- dies Trio, the memorial prayer was given by Fae H. Walker, and the benediction was offer- ed by Scott Salmon. Charles Wells arranged flags in tribute to the nations. The 1970 service was ar- ranged and directed by Mrs. William A. Anderson of the Ladies Literary Society execu- itve. Change Prison Name ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) The way it was in the old days, as memorialized in the gangster movies, of the 1930s and 1940s, the bad guys wound up in Sing Sing Prison. From now on, they'll be doing their time in the Ossining Correctional Facility. The name change resulted from a new state law re-organizing New York's penal system' to put more emphasis on criminal re- habilitation. vices include water, sewer and sidewalks. The prepaid ser- vices principle would mean ratepayers who have had side- walks for the past 10 years would not pay for those in new subdivisions. The town will continue rent- ing a tranquillizer gun for use by the dogcatcher. Census and enumeration oi the town population will be done in September and Octo- ber. Councillor Ben Reimer, rep- resentative on the Coaldale Centennial Library, reportec the change of classification rates made to the library by Calgary Power. In the past t was classed as domestic anc now is classified as commer- cial. The library is run com pletely on a grant basis and is not a profit making organiza- tion. Therefore it was felt the new classification was not equitable. It was agreed tha correspondence to the Calgary Power head office should re- quest the poww rates be re- verted to domestic. The police commission was given authority to look into costs of a new building. It is to involve plans, cost estimates and location of a new police building. These findings will be presented back to town council Mayor Low will represent town council on the Barons Eureka Health Unit. 12 Fires In MD TABER (HNS) A report from the Alberta Fire Commis sioners' Office, Edmonton, to the Taber MD covered a tota of 12 fires in the MD area for the first four months of 1970 Total fire loss for the period Was These are distributed as fol lows: Town of Taber five fires and total loss; Town of Vauxhall, two fires and loss, and MD of Taber five fires and total loss No fires occurred in the Vil- lage of Grassy Lake.

New AntiAircraft Missile Spotted W A fi KIN G T 0 N (AP) United States intelligence has reported the appearance in Egypt of an anti-aircraft missile similar to the U.S. Redeye, which is designed to knock down low-flying airplanes by loming in on their engines. Such a heat-seeking missile could further complicate the problems of Israeli pilots, al- ready facing more effective ligh altitude, radar guided SAM-2 missiles and SAM-3 bat- teries. Presumably, the heat-seekers Co. of Hinton. Meanwhile, fire restrictions were lifted in Jasper National Park, about 100 miles west of here, after light rainfall' re- duced the fire hazard which bad been rated extreme for four days. Chretien Proposal Rejected ST. PAUL, Alta. (CP) Jean Chretien, federal Indian affairs minister, sent a tele- gram Friday to the Indians oc- cupying an all Indian schoo saying again he is willing to meet with them in Ottawa July 22. The more than 100 Indians in- volved in the four day sit-in rejected the proposal saying fey would continue the sit-in until Mr. Chretien came to St. Paul, 200 miles northeast of .Edmonton. The Indians are demanding an all Indian board of trus- tees to operate Blue Quills res- idential school, which the fed- eral government said may be ccosed later and the students sent elsewhere. Architectural Styles Noted CALGARY (CP) A survey to identify Canadian buildings of unique architectural style and historical significance is being undertaken by the Na tional and historic parks branch, Ron Malis, acting west ern region director, announce today. Michael Fumalle of Calgary a research technician with the national historic sites division now is conducting the first pan of the survey in Jasper Nation- al Park. "The primary object of the study is to ensure that this as- pect of our national heritage is adequately recorded and ex- amples Mr. Malis said. were supplied to the Egyptians by the Russians, as were the SAMs. Reports' reaching the Penta- gon say the Redeye-type mis- siles were fired during Israeh' strikes on SAM-2 sites. Their apparent purpose is to help protect SAM-2s from knockout, U.S. sources said, but so far as is known they haven't hit any attacking jets. The Redeye, as used by the U.S. Army and Marine Corps, is small enough to be fired by a soldier. It looks something like the old talk-killing bazooka. The weapon gets its name from an infra-red sensor mounted in its nose. The Israeli air forte has lost three fighters since June 30 to improved SAM-2s on the Egypt- ian side of the Suez canal. To maintain the precarious military balance in the face of growing Soviet arms support to the Egyptians, U.S. authorities are reported to have decided to replace Israeli combat losses of F-4 Phantom fighters, and to furnish tha Israelis some radar- jamming equipment in an effort to foil the SAMs. Nothing has been said offi- cially here about the electronic equipment, which it is reported the Israelis will get, but some experts indicated they probably are pods which can be mounted on the fighters. Used against Russian-made SAM-2S in North Vietnam, this equipment tells a pilot when missile-guiding radar is fixed on lis plane, enabling him to send signals to confuse the radar. Soak Rich Plan OTTAWA (CP) Prime Min- ister Trudeau says his govern- ment wants to ease the tax bur- den on low-income Canadians and levy heavier taxes CO better off. The comment was contained in a missive said to have been written by the prime minister to an unidentified worker who complained about government anti-inflation poli- cies and rising unemployment. The text-of the letter was is- sued earlier this week by the Liberal party as part of a kit of propaganda material for gov- ernment MPs and party sup- porters. After defending anti-inflation policies and urging labor's cc- operation with the federal wage-restraint program, the let- ter refers to a comment by the complainant that "it is time for our politicians to start taking away from people who can af- ford it." The letter attributed to the prime minister replies: "We have published tax re- form proposals which are now being discussed in Parliament and in the country. "One of the main features ot these proposals is that of ability to pay, basically what you are calling for; the practical effect will be to reduce substantially the tax burden on those of lower incomes, by drawing more heavily on those better Wire Walker Tackles Gorge TULULAH FaDs, Ga. (AP) bolder-strewn creek at the point "You can give me but I am gtffl going to walk that Karl Wailenda said as he prepared to walk a slender cable across a gorge today. ruling member of one of circusdom's most famous families, said Friday he is mak- ing the walk because he wants to do something greater than has ever been done before. He told reporters he would streteh the distance of his walk to feet by crossing over two calwajks at both ends of the cable and down to where one end is anchored in the bedrock of this northwest Georgia com- munity of 300 persons. The gorge drops to a small Laos Thrust Seen SAIGON (AP) United States and South Vietnamese troops might be preparing for a thrust into .Laos. The joint initiative is aimed at disrupting North. Vietnamese camps, staging areas and war stockpiles in an effort to preempt an enemy offensive. A contingent of U.S. marines joined the operation Thursday, but their participation was not announced until today for secu- rity reasons. Gen. William C. Westmore- land, U.S. Army chief of staff, said earlier this week after a tour of tbe war zone that the Communist command has the capability of launching a major offensive in the northern quarter of South Vietnam. The joint assault, involving nearly troops, was launched in jungle mountains 30 to 50 miles south of Da Nang, South Vietnam's second-largest city. Some troops advanced to within striking distance of Laos; one forward base was at Kbam Due, 13 miles from the border.

Road Hopes Fade TABER (HNS) Two fac- tors have dimmed the pros- pscts of a paved road from Taber's west boundary to the Taber Provincial Park access road this year. It was the intention of the Taber MD to have the half- mile of district road paved by government crews when here for the hard surfacing of the connection from Highway 3 to the park. Deputy minister of highways and transport R. H. Cronkhite advised the MD council con- struction crews are committed for the summer and time will not permit the extra project. Mr. Cronkhite told the coun-, cil that only a base course would be laid on the park ac- cess road this year, the hot plant mix application being de- pendent on the stability of the base course. The second factor deferring the paving of the connection to Taber is the poor compaction of sections of the road due to long saturation by excess (run-off) irrigation water which makes paving at this time im- practical. The MD's consulting engine- ering firm D. G. Mathieu Con- struction Engineers of Calgary is proceeding with a call for tenders for paving four miles of district highway east from Highway 36 toward Hays north east of Vauxhall. A proposal by the Alberta Motor Association for the erec- tion of directional signs on dis- trict roads was tabled by the council, pending more complete information as to locations for these of his crossing. Wailenda, 65, was told record books show that a longer walk was made over Niagara Falls in the late 19th centny, but he disputed the record book and said he had viewed the scene of that crossing. "It couldn't have been over 600 feet or he said. TO CLAIM RECORD "This is going to be a great he said of his walk, which is launching a fund drive for building an amphitheatre on tha rim of the gorge. "It will be a world record." Thousands of persons poured imJo this community to watch the 40-minute walk.
