Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 36 LETHBRIDGE July 1974 Morocco law hits hijacScers RABAT The monarchy in Morocco has decided to crack down on hi- kidnappers and drug traffickers. New laws enacted in June provide harsh penalties for these modern crimes. Several times King Hassan has condemned political hi- jackings and es- pecially those involving Arab guerrillas. The Moroccan king was an- gered last December when Arab commandos attacked an aircraft at Rome kill- ing many people among whom were four high-ranking Moroccan government of- ficials. A new law signed by Premier Ahmed Osman makes this kind of operation a major although no such incident has occurred on Moroccan territory or involv- ed Moroccan aircraft. Kidnappers risk a minimum of five years in rising to 20 years. 30 years or life de- pending on the circumstances. If the kidnapped prisoner is tortured the culprits risk the death penalty. Hijackers of aircraft risk the same penalties and also are liable to 20 years in prison for taking over control of an aircraft in flight or on the ground if it is in transit. In another the Moroccan government increased penalties for nar- cotics offences which have become more frequent in the last two years. Relatively mild penalties under the old law did not appear to discourage the traf- ficking but the new law makes selling and exporting the drug a risky business.

HUNTERS VICTORIA After nearly two years of New Democratic government in British the political scene is in disarray as the opposition parties hunt for a winning alternative for the next election. Progressive Conservative and Social Credit members of the legislature fear that if there isn't some form of opposition there will be the same voting split among the free enterprise parties as occurred in the election when the NDP defeated the long-reigning Social Credit party. But the difference of opinion lies in just what form this unity movement should take. Opposition Leader Bill Bennett feels his Social Credit party is strong and broad enough to repre- sent the free enterprise vote and he has invited the other opposition members of the legislature to join his party in the fight against the NDP. Conservative Leader Scott Wallace and two Dr. Pat McGeer and Allan Williams Vancouver-Howe have rejected that idea but have said they would join a B.C. unity if such a group is formed. Option open Conservative Hugh Curtis and The also has given his support to a unity party but has left open the option of joining the Social Credit party. The key to the success of a unity party appears to be held by the 10 Social Credit party members in the 55-member House. The NDP have 38 Liberals five and Conservatives two. To be effective the unity party would have to have a majority of opposition members. the Social Credit caucus is interested in unity only un- der its banner. Mr. Bennett is reorganizing his party and a policy convention is scheduled for November. Dr. Wallace has called Mr. Bennett the main stumbling block in the way of a unity party which the Conservative said should have the support of every member of the legislature sincerely respects the democratic Liberal Leader David Anderson also opposes a unity saying he doesn't believe such a move- ment can defeat the NDP in an election. be easy' suggestion that we can merge political par- ties with the same ease that businessmen merge companies is absolute he said. He believes Liberals stand a good chance of steal- ing NDP votes in the next provincial election because they won 33 per cent of the B.C. vole in the July 8 federal election and doubled their seats from four to eight while the NDP lost nine of their 11 seats. But Dr. whose federal party gained 43 per cent of the B.C vote and increased its seats to 13 from has said the results showed only that the provincial NDP administration is ripe for the and that this can be done only by a unity party. The day after the federal Mr. Williams announced that the unity party would be formed in 30 days. he declined in a recent interview to say anything about the unity party until MUSHROOMING NUCLEAR CLOUD Novaya Zemlya 1949 Only time nuclear bombs ever used in war Soviet Union Aleutians Hiroshima Nevadatf Pakistan Rajasthan 1974 Emwetok Sahara Monte Bello 1952 Nations Possible New Members KUnited States N M nuclear weapon exploded successfully July 1945 South Africa Mururoa Atoll The cloud reappears At the height of the Cold War in the the world .was in the grip of nuclear pan- ic.

India later admitted the plutoniurn used in the bomb was produced in a reactor that Canada gave to India under a 1956 Colombo Plan agreement whick limited India to Canadian technology for peaceful purposes. As a Canada suspended all shipments of nuclear aid to India and all ex- changes on nuclear technology. The Indian test also resulted in questions being raised concerning Canada's current negotiations to sell a CANDU nuclear reactor to Argentina. The explosion made India the sixth nation to develop nuclear weapons since the United States set off the first successful nuclear explosion at July 1945. It was only three weeks later that the world saw the horrendous effects atomic bombs could produce. was devastated Aug. Three days later Nagasaki suffered a similar fate.
