Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE ICTHBRIDGE HERAIO Tuesday, July 20, 1971 Summit meeting urged with nine Arab leaders BEIRUT, Lebanon (neuter) King Hussein's army began hunting down the last Palestin- ian Arab commandos still at large in Jordan today amid mounting Arab opposition to the military crackdown. Head of State Col. Muammar Kadafi of Libya called on nine leaders to hold an emer- gency summit conference to dis- cuss the upsurge of fighting in Jordan. Libyan Radio quoted Kadafi as saying the situation has be- come so serious that military intervention is necessary. His message was sent to heads of state of Egypt, Sudan, Kuwait, Yemen Arab Republic, Farm machinery price hike hinted WMNIPKJ tive deputyleader Harry Enns says the TOP government's new Farm Machinery and Equipment Act may force deal- ers to up their prices by sev- eral dollars. Mr. Enns told the Manitoba Legislature Monday night a provision in the bill allowing farmers to place an order for emergency repair parts at any time, to be met within 48 hours, would force equipment dealers and vendors to stay open 365 days a year, raising their op- erating costs. "There are implications m this bill which would suggest that the price of tractors is going to go up 5300 and com- bines will go up the Lake- side MLA said. The bill, introduced for sec- ond reading by Agriculture Minister S'am Uskiw, would also require that dealers pro- vide repairs parts fof machines up to 10 years old within a week of the time a farmer places an order. In addition, it would extend to 90 from five days the rial period for machinery and equip- ment, and a one-yeaf warranty in force under present legisla- tion would be replaced by an unconditional warranty of operating hours for tractors and 300 hours for combines and et least one year for all other ecjuipment.______ Mr. Enns said his party agreed in principle with the bill, but many sections would have to be considered after "serious representation" from farmers, vendors and dealers. In introducing the legislation, Mr. Uskiw said the govern- ment was flexible on the ques- tion of the trial period for ma- chinery and the time limits for requiring repairs. Suggestions would be listened democratic People's Republic of Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Tunisia and Algeria. The Libyan broadcast made no mention of the coup in Sudan and it was not immediately clear how far this would dis- tract Arab attention from the situation in Jordan. SUMMIT PRECARIOUS With the Jordan trouble and attempted coup in Morocco, the overthrow of Maj.-Gen. Jaafar Al-Nimeiry was the third major crisis to shake Arab unity in the last 10 days. Observers said it made prospects of an early summit even more precarious. Iraq, which announced swift recognition for the new adminis- tration in Sudan, already has condemned the Jordan govern- ment for its treatment the commandos. It asked Amman to recall its ambassador from Baghdad and closed the border with Jordan. Jordanian Premier Wasfi Tell, at a news conference Mon- priest, parishioners are found alive MANILA (AP) A Canadian Roman Catholic priest and sue parishioners missing since June 11 have been found alive, the Philippines news service re- ported Monday.

The Apollo 12 and 14 crews since have left their footprints n the dusty lunar soil. An oxy- gen tank exploded on the Apollo 13 astronauts' spaceship and they were forced to return to earth without attempting a moon landing.

WILL BE SCREENED All the commandos now under detention in an army camp out- side Amman would be screenei and only those who placed the liberation of Palestine first would be released to operate in new agreed areas in Jordan. Those aready wanted by th_ authorities and those who advo- cated overthrowing the Jordan administration would be impris oned or deported, the premie said. Radical left-wing groups like the Popular Front for the Liber atioa of Palestine would not be allowed in Jordan, he added. Fatah, the biggest command organization, urged nuitary in tervention in Jordan and politi cal and economic sanctions against Hussein's government.
