The general, who once served at Edmonton, is still as direct and plain-spoken as when he was idolized and feared on Sec- ond World War battlefields in every major Canadian engage- ment on the miinlftid of Italy. Former Prime Minister John Diefenhaker said in Prince Al- bert, Sask. the proposed visit by President Richard Nixon to Mainland China is a "tremen- dous initiative." "History will have a special place for him" if the visit suc- ceeds, Mr. Diefenbaker said in an interview. u Former senator Gerald P. Nye, 78, one of the U.S. Sen- ate's most vigorous opponents of United States entry into the Second World War, died in Washington. A Republican, ha jumped from a country editor's chair in North Dakota to the Senate, where he served 19 years, much of the time in the spotlight of controversy. Jeanne M. Holm is the first woman general in the United States Air Force. The 50-year- old director of women in the air force since 1965 received the sil- ver stars of a brigadier-general during a Pentagon ceremony. Maj.-Gen. E. E. Armour, re- cently retired Canadian Forces eputy chief of logistics, has been named executive director of Action Canada, Paul Hell- yer's new political party. Maj.- Gen. Armour, 55, is a native of Saskatchewan who now lives in Ottawa. The winner of the thou- sand Royal Bank of Canada Award for 1971 architect Arthur Erickson says North American cities are the result of the "sewer complex. The sewers go in if nothing else does and there is never any- thing left in the budget for any- thing else." The architect who designed the Canadian pavilion at Expo '80 in Osaka and the University of Lethbridge says the ugly, chaotic sprawl of North American cities reflects our indifference. U.S. documents linked with China planning DETROIT (AP) The De- troit News says a reason the federal government went to court to try to stop publication of the secret Pentagon Papers "was a fear that certain disclo- sures might wreck the secret planning then under way for President Nixon's anticipated trip to Communist China-" "In going to The News says, "the government's top lawyers believe they also saved the lives of several Americans, headed off some grave security leaks and preserved the machin- ery of some of today's peace moves among countries of the East and West." In a copyright story, the De- troit paper's Washington bureau chief, J. E. Ter Horst, says while the government lost 6 to 3 in the Supreme Court, ft feels it won more than it lost by at least temporarily halting publi- cation of the papers.

HAY MOBILE HOMES PHONE 328.4664 LONDON (CP) After weeks of conflicting predictions, cer- tainty now is being voiced here that Harold wilson has finally come down against the Conserv- ative government's terms for British entry into the European Common Market. "Wilson is off the Market fence at declared one Ancient burial ground found MELFI, Italy (Reuter) Ar- cheologists announced here the discovery of an entire Greek necropolis, or burial ground, outside this southern city, one of the oldest on the Italian penin- sula. The tomb? have revealed a hoard of women's jewelry in gold and silver gilt, and amber ornaments with finely worked bas-reliefs representing female figures and Greek warriors. The hoard, said by archeolo- gists to be of inestimable value, was found in a series of stone- walled tombs covered with stone slabs. The entire ceme- tery was unearthed a few days ago during excavations on the building site. Melfi stands on the edge of the Basilicata Mountains of southernmost Italy, about 40 miles inland from the Adriatic coast. It was one of many south Italian towns founded by Greek settlers in pre-Roman times. Ban soul song SAIGON (AP) The United States command has banned the popular soul song Bring the Boys Home from the Ameri- can Forces Vietnam network, claiming it would give aid and comfort to the Communists. Sunday headline describing the sometimes-scathing speech about entry delivered by the Labor party leader Saturday. With Wilson still capable of supporting the principle of entry as contrasted with the current provisions, terms agreed on by the government, The Sunday Express notes that he did not formally say "no" to Europe. "But he put beyond all doubt that his recommendation to the party executive next week will reject (Prime Minister) Edward Heath's terms for joining the says the anti-Market Ex- press. Duncan Sandys, a leading pro-Market spokesman among the Conservatives, said the Op- position chief has dropped all pretence of weighing the argu- ments for and against entry. Apparently referring to Wil- son's attempts to avert a disas- trous Labor party split on the Market question, Sandys said the former prime minister is in- terested above all in getting back into power. OBJECTION TO TERMS The Opposition leader said Saturday he rejects any asser- tion that the terms obtained by the Conservatives "are the terms the Labor government asked for, would have asked for or would have been bound to ac- cept." Wilson suggested market membership for Britain would damage Anglo-Soviet relations. He also insisted that safeguards for New Zealand and the Com- KKK chief fired CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Harold Murray, grand dragon of the North Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, has been dis- missed as a clerk in this city's building inspection department because of his association with the Han. monwealth sugar producers under the government's entry terms are inadequate. His words had the effect of further isolating pro-Market Labor adherents such as Deputy Leader Roy Jenkins, whose fu- ture as a top party official now seems in some question. The Wilson attack also indi- cated that the coming months of Market controversy will largely be on party-political lines, a de- velopment which may help Heath bring Conservative oppo- nents of entry into line. The special Labor confer- ence's agreement to withhold a showdown vote on the MarVt issue until the parly's annual meeting this fall seemed a de- cided victory for Wilson's unity efforts. Wilson apparently won pre- cious time for further party de- bate about the Market, instead I of being confronted with an im- 1 mediate breakdown of unity.
