Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednodoy, July 23. 1973 News in brief Thousands scream at. funeral HONG KONG (AP) Police barred thousands of screaming fans from funeral services to- day for movie star Bruce Lee, who collapsed and died Friday at the age of 33. Lines started to form in front of the funeral parlor shortly be- fore dawn, but more than 200 police kept the crowds behind iron barricades. Only Lee's relatives, friends and film asso- ciates were admitted for the Buddhist service. Actress Betty Ting Pei, in whose apartment two Hong Kong newspapers reported Lee suffered his fatal collapse, did not attend the funeral but sent a large wreath. She had denied the newspaper reports. Lee's body was dressed in black Chinese pajamas, like those he wore in his picture The Chinese Connection, now show- ing in North America. Lee's American widow, Una, wore a white Chinese gown. Raymond Chow, a local film producer who was Lee's part- ner, said the body would be flown Thursday to Seattle, Wash., for burial there. Lee's mother lives there. Wheat sale charges laid WASHINGTON (AP) The Commodity Exchange Authority recommend that adminis- trative charges be filed against a second grain company in- volved in last year's huge sale of United States wheat to the Soviet Union. Alex Caldwell, administrator of the exchange authority, told the Senate investigations sub- committee Tuesday that he will ask that the unnamed company be charged with failing to file accurate reports on its gram dealings. Caldwell said he does not know why the justice depart- ment decided against bringing criminal charges against Conti- nental Grain Co. on a similar complaint. Senator Henry M, Jackson (Dem. subcommittee chairman, said he will call on the justice department to ex- plain its action. Ulbrichfs health worsens BERLIN (AP) Doctors an- nounced Tuesday a worsening in the condition of Walter Ul- bricht, East German Commu- nist party leader.

(AP) Skylab 2 crew had its last full day of training today for man's longest space trip as the launch team prepared to start the final countdown. The countdown dock starts at 9 p.m. MDT, aiming for liftoff at a.m. Saturday for the 59-day mission aboard the Sky- lah laboratory orbiting 270 miles above the earth. Astronauts Alan Owen Garriott and Jack Lousma planned to spend most of the day in a spaceship simulator at the Johnson Space Center near Houston, Tex. They were to rehearse the launch and the 8% hours of maneuvers required to ren- their modified Apollo moonship with the space lab Saturday afternoon. Flood damage cost M. MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) Flooding in late June and early July caused total damage esti- mated at nearly million in Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts, state officials said Tuesday. The biggest share, mil- lion, was in Vermont, Agricul- t u r a 1 Commissioner Leo O'Brien said Tuesday. George McAvoy, New Hamp- shire disaster co-ordinator, said damage to hay and corn was estimated at 84.8 million, wfafle other crop losses totaled more than million. Flooding in the Connecticut Valley area of Massachusetts caused nearly million in loss of crops and damaged farm- land. The estimate in Vermont includes hay and corn crops losses, eroded fields and damage to farm buildings. OTTAWA (CP) With no end in sight to what some MPs are calling midsummer mad- ness, the Commons echoed Tuesday night with sometimes passionate debate on amend- ments to the Criminal Code de- signed to make rape or kidnap- ping capital offences if the vic- tim should die. The amendments to a con- troversial bill to re-establish the partial moratorium on hanging until 1977 -were proposed by Al- banie Morin Debate on them began last Friday, was put off until Mon- day and by Tuesday night, the House had spent more than eight hours on them. When this section of debate is done, it will be a repeat performance on companion amendments from Allan Lawrence umberland-Durham) to make air piracy a hanging offence if death is involved and to hang second-time murderers. "Permissive prison plans to continue' Viet prison exchange stops SAIGON (Reuter) exchanges between the Viet Cong and South Vietnamese government have been sus- pnded for the time being, the government announced today. A spokesman said the release of prisoners throughout the country had been stopped pend- ing a meeting between the top military representatives of both sides. It now seems unlikely the re- lease of more than 4.000 prison- ers, held by both sides will go ahead before the July 28 dead- line set by last month's Paris communique which re-affirmed the January peace agreement. The prisoner exchanges broke down Teesday after 24 civilian detainees being handed hack to the Viet Cong asked to remain in South Vietnamese hands and were set upon by Communist youths, a government sokes- man here said. Iran approves ail transfer TEHRAN (AP) The lower house of the Iranian parliament unanimously approved on Tues- day transfer of the Western- owned oil industry to govern- ment control.. The consortium is made up of American. French, British and Dutch companies. The legisla- tion has to be acted upon by the Senate before it can be ratified by the Shah of Iran now on a visit to Washington. The oil deal gives the Na- to sell 29.3 billion barrels of oil to consortium members, with the biggest share going to Brit- ish Petroleum, which held a 40- per-cent interest in the con- sortium. The agreement will increase Iranian revenues to billion now and to billion by 1977, said a lower-bouse deputy, Mostafa AlamoutL Daily production, which has increased steadily to fire mil- lion barrels, will be boosted to VICTORIA (CP) Despite a few spectacular escapes, the federal government plans to maintain its permissive prisons systems, Paul Faguy, commis- sioner of penitentiaries, said Tuesday.

In a major policy statement But taken in the context of more than permits in one year, they are relatively very, very few."

He admitted he was "walking a tight rope" over the various demands of different interests in Canada. "We have to make changes and bring in programs to help inmates move back into society keep in mind at all times that there is no better protec- tion for the public than reha- bilitation so that the released person will not go back to pri- son, and will not commit he said. Capital punishment will have to wait, however, because today the Commons is scheduled to get back to consideration of a bill that would permit insurance of special coins and stamps to raise million for the 1976 Olympic Games at Montreal. "That may take a day ..or evec a government spokesman said. Solicitor-General Warren Al- hnand, in a brief interview out- side the House Tuesday night, was cautiously confident that the capital punishment amend- ments would be defeated. He indicated, however, that the margin by which the amendments would be daieeted will be "a few less" than Use 24 votes by which his bill was given second reading May 29 when the result was 138 to 114. Asked whether there is any indication when the capital pun- ishment debate will end. he said "that's anybody's guess." Irish Lunger strike enters fourth week BELFAST (Reuter) Two leaders of the extreme leftist Peoples Democracy Movement have entered the fourth week of a hunger strike to protest against their jailing as common Criminals Michael Farrell and Tony Canavan were described by home affairs ministry officials as in satisfactory condition, al- though Canavan's mother has said he collapsed when she vis- ited him earlier this week.

(AP) Police Chief Frank Dyson says the fa- tal shooting of a handcuffed 11- year-old boy by a policeman while they were sitting in a squad car was "uncalled fort unjustified and illegal." Patrolman Darryl Cain, 30, was charged with murder after the shooting Tuesday. He was released on bond. Police said a bullet from Cain's .357-calibre revolver killed Santos Rodriguez as Cain and another officer questioned the boy and his 13-year-old brother David about a service station break-in. Chief Dyson said there was "no attempt on the part of the deceased to get away from the officer." "It's hard to understand what would cause a man to do some- tiling like this hard to ex- plain hard to accept." Dyson said Cain, a policeman since 1968, was in shock after the shooting. Three years ago, Cain and an- other patrolman were involved in the shooting death of Michael Morehead, 18, but a grand jury WASHINGTON (AP) The growing Watergate con- frontation has put a cautious Attorney-General Elliot ardson in the middle between the president and the prose- cutor. Richardson carefully weighs his response to questions about the approaching clash between President Nixon and special Watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox over Cox's subpoena Mon- day of White House documents and tape recordings. The deadline for the White House response to Cox's sub- poena and two from the Senate Watergate committee is 8 a.m. MDT Thursday. Deputy Press Secretary Ger- ald Warren said Tuesday that Nixon's answer would be con- sistent with earlier refusals to produce presidential documents. COURT MOTION LIKELY Warren refused to say what form the response might take but the likeliest challenge would be a White House motion in U.S. District Court to kin the subpoenas on grounds feat nei- ther the committee nor Cox has the constitutional authority to require a president to surrender Ms, personal files. Technically, Cox works for Richardson and Richardson works for the president. But the Senate confirmed his nomi- nation In May only after ap- proving the choice of Cox and only after exacting firm pledges that Cox would have a free hand to pursue the evidence wherever it might lead. Because of those circum- stances, whatever Richardson says or does about the gate case cannot escape intense scrutiny. Does the president have legal or constitutional grounds for re- fusing the Cox subpoena, or two similar ones issued by Senator Sam Ervin's Senate Watergate committee? Richardson didn't avoid re- porters pressing for his view Tuesday, but he responded with an opinion tenuously balanced between Cox and the president. On the one hand, he said, Cox is only doing his job by sub- poenaing the documents. But on the other hand, a criminal in- vestigation does not automati- cally guarantee access to the president's confidential papers. SEES BASIS IN LAW On Nixon's side, Richardson says he finds "substantial legal and constitutional foundations" for the president's refusal Nixon's argument teat the constitutional separation of powers prevents forced dis- closure is "particularly per- suasive with reference to the Ervin Richardson said. On the other hand, he said he sees no constitutional issue so long as Cox "is visualized as carrying out an executive tion."

Malaysia not able to assist KUALA LUMPUR (Reuter) Malaysia is unable to take the place of Canada in the In- ternational Commission of Con- trol and Supervision (ICCS) in South Vietnam because of her internal commitments, Prime Minister Tun Abdul Razak said today. The prims minister told re- porters that Malaysia had been informally approached through Indonesia to participate in the ICCS. However. Malaysia had ex- plained her reasons for not being able to do so: primarily because of a shortage of offi- cers and security commitments at the common borders with In- donesia and Thailand.
