(AP Wirepholo) American Neivspaper Guild hit for backing McGovern Asians supply heroin WASHINGTON (AP) The executive board of the Washing- ton chapter of Sigma Delta Chi, a professional journalists' soci- ety, has criticized endorsement by the American Newspaper Guild of Senator George Me- Govern's presidential campaign. The organization said, in a statement signed by President Samuel Yette, that the endorse- ment constituted "an instance of faulty Judgment rare in our profession." "We do not take issue with the right of any individual in the working press to adopt whatever private political sym- pathies he a pri- vate, individual the statement said. "However, that right does not extend to the public exhibition of those views by groups or per- sons who have chosen as a pro- fession the unbiased communi- cation of ideas and events." VANCOUVER (CP) Under- world violence and tough po- lice enforcement have forced major narcotic distributing rings in eastern Canada to ab- andon the lucrative mar- ket here, police say. The heroin distribution rack- et, mainly controlled in British Columbia by three rival syndi- cates, grosses million a year. Less than a year ago, an es- timated 90 per cent of this her- oin came from the Middle East and Turkey via France and was distributed in Canada by im- porters operating out of Mon- treal and Toronto. Now, a police spokesman said in an interview, tin's amount has dwindled to less than 20 per cent. The slack has been snatched up by Asian suppliers with headquarters in Hong Kong. For the Vancouver syndi- cates, it has meant an ever-in- creasing risk from police inter- ference and competitors. For the addict, the switch to Chinese heroin meant little. It's still lop-grade stuff and as close to the addict as the near- est telephone. Seven murders in the last two years in the greater Van- couver area have been linked directly to the heroin trade. Scores of persons have had attempts made on their lives or have received warnings from the underworld through shootings, knifings and at least one bombing. Eighty-four addicts, most in- volved in peddling narcotics to support their own addiction, died in 1371 of overdoses. Police say they know some of those 84 were actually murder victims. The weapons used were "hot caps" capsules containing pure heroin instead of a diluted mixture of up to 90 per cent milk sugar. But to prove homicide in such cases is nearly impossible. Vancouver police and RCMP drug squads have applied al- most continuous pressure on drug pushers in recent months. This year alone they have: Staged three major round-ups of 187 suspected traffickers charged on evidence gathered by undercover constables; Broken onee major and two small independent operations; Made numerous large heroin seizures, including one totalling 30 pour.ds of pure heroin which, if diluted with milk sugar and sold in capsule form on the street, would have had a poten- tial value of million, and Laid two separate drug traf- ficking conspiracy charges, one involving JU persons anu uiu other involving UIU bllltlll he said. "The continuing violence, the recent arrests and the seizure of 30 pounds of heroin just after it arrived from spokesman described the Orienlal heroin as similar in its liigh quality to that of the same drug processed in Turkey and have made the eastern Middle East. reluctant to deal with the for the opera- a police is Hong Kong, but the pop- man for the heroin is grown in why the locals have gone to other sources.
