Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 25, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Kent Report Under Fire AKRON1, Ohio (AP) Adju- tant-General Sylveslr T. Del Corso, commander of the Ohio National Guard, said today a newspaper story on purported contents of an FBI report into the May 4 shooting deatlis of four Kent Stale University stu- dents contained "unbelievable" assertions. The Akron Beacon Journal, in a copyright story published Thursday, said the FBI had con- cluded that the shootings in a clash with guardsmen were "not necessary." The FBI said in statements in Cleveland and Washington that Decorated Soldier it had released its report on the shootings only to the United States justice department and it did not draw any conclusions ol any type in the report. Del Corso said he had not seen the justice department summary on which The Beacon Journal said its story was based. "At least the conclusions as stated by the paper are just un- believable that there were no troops injured, that no stones were thrown and that there was a question of whether there was even a he said. Faces Charge WASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. Army today ordered a dec- orated master-sergeant .tried by a general court martial on charges he stole about and accepted more than in bribes while running a mess in South Vietnam for non-com- missioned officers and enlisted men. The action was taken against M. Sgt. William E. Higdon, 40, of East Point, Ga. It is the first prosecution since a Senate investigations subcommittee last year devel- oped testimony that some senior non-commissioned officers raked in huge amounts of graft, including kickbacks, while oper- ating messes and clubs in Eu- rope and the Far East. Higdon also is one of five sol- diers and former soldiers whose cases have been referred to the justice department. The five were shareholders in a corpora- tion called Marden, Inc., which allegedly reaped big profits by selling supplies to clubs. European Space Body Formed BRUSSELS (Reuters) Eu- ropean science ministers de- cided Friday to set up a united European space organization that coulc1. play a part in the American post-Apollo space pro- gram. The European space confer- ence decided to merge the Eu- ropean Launcher Development Organization; the European Space Research organization and the European Conference on Telecommunications by Sat- ellite into one central body rep- resenting 12 countries. The conference also author- ized its chairman, Theo Lefevre of Belgium, to discuss with the U.S. state department a recent United States offer to Europe to join in a new space project. In Washington, Lefevre mil discuss European participation in the space shuttle project, a progr'am to send men and equipment from earth to space stations in a craft that can re- turn to earth and be used again. Saturday, July 25, 1970 THE LETHBRIDG2 HERAlD 9 Energy Supply Runs Low In U.S. WASHINGTON (CP) The I of barrels a day was worsening energy-supply situa- tion in the United States is caus- ing concern in high places and a number of government agencies are known to be preparing re- ports on a wide range of possi- ble options if the situation turns critical. A revision of the controversial oil-import policy is a prime con- sideration but several well- placed sources tend to discount the idea that any substantial in- crease in Canadian imports is likely in the near future. The present, temporary quota proclaimed by President Nixon last March and sources see lit- tle likelihood that it will be re- vised upwards by any large amount before the proclamation runs out next December. As for reports the state de- partment was seeking a loop-, hole through which Canadian oil could flow, one industry source pointed out the administration could increase such imports in a completely above-board manner simply as a matter of policy. As of now, U.S. supplies of Mr. David George Dunbai formerly of Lethbridge, recently completed requirements for tjie Doctor of Musical Artg Degree at the University of Southern California in tos Angeles. Mr. Dunbar is the son of Mr. and Mrs. David Dunbor of 1513 9th Avenue South. He was a member of the Lethbridge Kiwanis Band in the mid-1940's. He attended teth- bridge Collegiate Institute and Canadian Nazarene College in Red Deer. He holds bachelor degrees in Church Music and Music Education from Olivet Nazarene College in Kinkakee, Illinois, and a Master of Music in Voice from the University of Illinois at Urbana. In 1960 Mr. Dunbar began teaching at Cascade College in Portland, Oregon. He remained there until 1965 when he began his doctoia! work at U.S.C. In 1967 he returned to Cascade for 2 years, and in the fall of 1969 Joined the music faculty at Olivet Nazarene College. Dr. and Mrs. Dunbar and their daughter Kathleen spent the month of June in tos Ange- les where Dr. Dunbar made ar- rangements leading up to the final defense of his Dissertation on June 29 thus completing all requirements for the degree. The Dunbors are vacationing in Portland, Oreqon and Leth- bridqe before Dr. Dunbar re- turns to Olivet Nazarene College as actinq chairman of the Divi- sion of Fine Arts for the coming year. Dr. and Mrs. Dunbar will pre- sent a short Sacred Music pro. gram, Sunday, July 26th at p.m. In the Church of the Naza- rene, tethbridnc. but there is no immediate shor- j tage. The most pressing need is I for residual oil, asphalt and some other items. Given the "politics of petro- one source said, any- thing could happen. But he pointed out that the most imme- diate potential energy crisis is in the supply of electric power and any sudden upturn .in Cana- any oil imports would not help that sit- uation. However, if world deliveries of Middle East supplies continue their recent downward trend as a result of the political situation there, there might be some revi- sion in long-term U.S. import policy, perhaps after the first of the new year. FUEL OIL SHORT Part of the electric power shortage is due to a shortage of residual fuel oil to feed U.S. Midwest, generators. Canada does not export residual oil. There have been reports that northeastern electric power slants have resorted to using ow-sulphur crude oil Canada does export. It's an expensive :'Iike feeding wheat to as one source put would )e temporary in nature, simply to get the area through a tight situation. Speculation on the situation comes as a bipartisan group of louse of Representatives mem- bers are calling for creation of a commission to evaluate the in- creasing demands for power sources. 'For the first time in our his- tory the nation is facing an un- certain future insofar as its sup- ply of energy is said chairman Harley 0. Stag- gers (Dem. W.Va.) of the House commerce committee. Coincidenlally, the House mines and mining subcommit- tee met behind closed doors today to draft its report on a series of hearings on oil-import policy it held last spring.

The U.S. is opposed to what terms such "unilateral" actions Presumably, broad interna tional ratification of the Brus sels conventions by many coun tries would make it more diff cult for Canada to win favor to its ideas on stricter regulations Neuman said ratification o the civil liabilty conventio "will bring the United State into a uniform regime of inter national regulations designed t compensate the victims of oi pollution, whether those victim are governments or private cit; zens, or both." The convention was "both evi dence of, and a response to, the reality that the world's enforce-mental problems require co-op e r a t i v e international action rather than unilateral rela tions." CANADA WANTS MORE Although Canada participatet hi the Brussels conference i has no intention of ratifying the conventions on the grounds they do not go far1 enough. In going ahead with its own plan for protecting the Arctic, Canada took the position tha ratification might take some time and protection of the environment cannot wait. Also, monetary compensation woulc be of little benefit once the Arctic was polluted, the government argues. The U.S. takes the position at such protective measures should be agreed on internationally and not be taken Case t ally. Apparently the U.S. believes the proposed conventions would help slow such unilateral actions. Without specific mention of Canada, Neuman said in his prepared statement to the public works subcommittee on air and water pollution: "Without the convention, we must be prepared to face the prospects of ever-widening claims of national jurisdiction for the ostensible purpose of pollution control in international waters." At the time Canada announced the Arctic stand, the U.S. state department pressed concern that it would set a dangerous precedent for other coastal stales to follow. tends is has been unveiled before an inquirinf. U.S. Senate subcommittee. Failure to ratify such a convention "would seriously under mine" U.S. ability to negotiate similar "effective inlernaliona agreements" in the future, Robert H. Neuman, assistant lega adviser of the state department said in testimony. Actually, the Nixon administration is urging Senate ratification of two conventions, the products" of the internaliona legal conference on marine pollution danger held in Brussels last November.

(AP) The Pittsburgh Press has been ordered to change its classified advertising policy within 30 days to eliminate references to sex in job ads. The Pittsburgh Commission on Human Relations ruled that segregating job ads under- the headings "jobs-male interest" and "jobs-female interest" is a violation of the city's human relations ordinance. The ruling came after hearings were held on a complaint filed by the Pittsburgh chapter of the National Organization for Women. The city ordinance prohibits publishing of advertisements which include "any discrimination because of race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin or place of birth or OPTICAL DISPENSING OPTICIAN "Where service means serving people" 618 3rd Ave. S.
