Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 26, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta A BEGGAR'S LIFE Carrying his sisler in a sling, a Saigon street urchin holds his hat out to passersby on a downtown street. (AP Wirephoto) James Bond in blackface? ENTERTAINMENT Black audiences are flock- ing to the movies to sec films made by hlacks for blacks about the "black experience." Bul Is it just a gimmick which will vanish soon, or the real thing to liccomc a hasic part of film culture? This is the second of Iwo arliclrs on Uic subject. By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD AP) Ts Shaft only James Bond in black- face? Can Sidney Poilier do his own thing in the West, or is he merely a black John Wayne? Critics have raised the ques- tion of whether the "new" black movie is really new or strictly the tried and true film formula played with darker coloring. "Some of the films do reflect the black said Ivan Dixon, who recently com- pleted his first film as a direc- tor, Trouble Man. "But many ol them merely reflect what the white producer mistakes the black experience to be. There is no way that he can understand the wellsprings of black existence. "Producers have discovered a formula that they think works for them. They figure all they have to do is provide a lot of sex, a lot of blood least one scene of a black beating up whites." Actor Jim Brown agreed: "The companies are now mak- ing pictures about what they think the black experience is. Under this kind of thinking, every picture has to be located in Harlem, and every picture has to deal with narcotics and pimps. "Sure, these pictures sell and they provide jobs lor blacks. They also provide entertain- ment that blacks can enjoy. But they should be recognized for what they arc." Gordon Parks, who created a superhero with Shaft and its se- quel, remarks: "I will never apologize for Shaft." "7 think the black kid is enti- tled to a black hero, and I would rather have any kid ad mire Shaft rather than James Bond. Shaft can be accepted as a guy, a marvellous guy. "What endeared Shaft to the black audience was that for the first time on screen, they saw a black man winning. No matter how fictional, that's important." Motor fuel from China keeps war hot WASHINGTON (AP) Pen- tagon sources report that fresh supplies of motor fuel appar- ently have started flowing into North Vietnam through a new pipeline from South Clu'na. In addition, U.S. reconnaiss- ance planes recently located a new petroleum-storage depot tying into the pipeline. The depot is said to be relatively near the Chinese border. For weeks, U.S. photo planes have been monitoring construc- tion progress of the new pipe- line that could be vital in keep, ing North Vietnam's war effort going. Recent intelligence reports have spoken of petroleum prod- ucts being discharged from rail- way tank cars at Pinghsiang on the Chinese side of the border. From Pinghsiang the new pipeline runs across the North Vietnamese border and reaches Haiduong, east of Hanoi. LARGE LAKE The largest lake in the world is the Caspian Sea, an area of square miles bordered by the Soviet Union and Iran, The Lethbridge Herald THIRD SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, July 26, 1972 PAGES 29 TO 36 Kosygin Brezhnev conversation was bugged and it isn't funny By ARTHUR L. GAVSHON LONDON (AP) In the ear hours of Monday, Feb. 13, 19B Alexei N. Kosygin telephone Leonid I. Brezhnev in Mosco rrom the elegant luxury of London hotel suite. The Soviet premier appar ently did not know that ever word he uttered to the Commu 1st party chief was being ]i :ened to by his British hosts. Disclosure of one of the mo sensational British intelligenc operations of modern timi came from Washington wil publication of the latest volumi of the Pentagon papers. Behind a facade of calm u concern, British authorities ar angry with their America riends; embarrassed, too, tha :heir bugging of a Soviet lead: las exposed them to Moscow a tack. They also are rememberin Ditterly how lapses in their ow security system were assaile by Americans who, for wha ever reasons, have now been ii strumental i n compromisin British intelligence operations. "Every head of governme who visits London will assum hat he is being on high source remarked. It is possible that most impo tant statesmen assume the conversations and activities a monitored anyway. But Britis authorities see distinction b tween an assumption and som thing that has been confirme however inadvertently. Kosygin was a guest of tl British government from Feb. to 13, when Harold Wilsi was Labor prime m i n i s t e Their week-long exchanges co cred many matters but t] main focus was on a search f a basis of ending the Vietna war. As Wilson told the story in tus memoirs, peace was "in grasp." But the response then president Lyndon John son's U.S. administration to his initiative proved disastrous. As the authors of the Pent gon papers told the story, Kos gin, to the evident surprise Washington at the time, ha agreed to send certain proposa lianded him by Wilson on oi. These proposals prom ised a break-through to peai .alks. The Pentagon papers, In crucial passage, comments "On Feb. 13 overheard by telephone inte ccpt to tell Brezhnev of a grea South Yemen operation flushes rebels MUSCAT, Oman (AP) Omani forces have launched mop-up operation to flush ou Marxist rebels from an cmba led frontier post on the horde vith south Yemen, the arm command reported here. Acommunique said fou xoops were missing in ihe a :ion, which followed a rebel a empt last week to storm For Morbat, east of Salalah. The attack was turned bac Saturday and the army said 2 guerrillas were killed, nin vounded and 12 captured. Go1 ernment casualties were give as seven killed.

Ho was not hurl. possibility of achieving the aim, if the Vietnamese will under- stand the present situation that we have passed to them; then they will have to decide. All they need to do is to give a con- fidential declaration." POSES MANY QUESTION'S Against llu's background sev- eral questions arise. could so experienced a man as Kosygin allow himself to be bugged? Who carried out the opera- tion? it been going on for long? Political and other British au- thorities involved in the episode and in the talks at the time, an- swering a reporter's questions, have come up with some of the answers. The informants, who insisted on anonymity, reported. who had his own security men with him, could not have known he was being overheard. His telephone was not tapped. The Britisli assume his men would have "swept" his suite for lisening devices. Al- most certainly the intercept was through an electronic gadget in a building near Claridges Hotel and beamed into Kosygin's study. gadgets are sensitive enough to pick up conversations half a mile away, through win- dows. They were worked by in- telligence specialists, specially assigned to monitor Kosygin when he was here. A transcript of Kosygin's remarks to Brezh- nev that cold winter's night was on Wilson's desk at 10 Downing Street next day. o s y g i n was monitored throughout his week-long stay in Britain, though obviously only in certain places. About the only time he was totally "safe" from electronic eavesdroppers was when he was inside the Soviet embassy, where certain rooms are known to be impenetrable. Tiger Moth takes doc on his house calls McBIUDE, B.C. (CP) When Dr. GeoHrey Cowburn of McBride goes off on a housecall, he may take not only a little black bag but a battle-tested airplane to boot. Dr. Cowburn is the new owner ol a not-so-new de Hav- illand Tiger Moth, an open- cockpit, single-engine, hanrt- cranked biplane built in 1938. Flying buffs will perk up their ears at thai. Especially when they hear that this particular plane is one of those that flew as a spotter plane during the evac- uation of Dunkirk. Dr. Cowburn intends to use his Tiger Moth in his practice in the McBride-Valcmount aiea of east-central British Columbia. It was shipped to Prince George, 130 miles west of here, from England, but not all in one piece. It came in several crates, and required four days for reassembly. "I learned to fly them in Dr. Cowburn cald. "There used to be lot of them around, but now they are rare." When Dr. Cowbura bought his Tiger Moth from a friend, there were 20 registered ll the country. There are Canadian-built Tiger Moths, but they're a bit different. They have tail wheels, while Dr. Cowbum'a Moth has a skid. The Cana- dian models have brakes; Dr. Cowburn's doesn't. Despite those two minor drawbacks, Dr. Cowburn's plane appears to have a fea- ture useful in mountainous eastern B.C. It has short take-off and landing charac- teristics, needing a runway less than 300 lect long. And in this pollulion-minded world, Dr. Ccnvbum can fly with a clear conscience: Like new cars, the little 193B Tiger Moth uses unleaded gasoline, which is also cheaper than aviation fuel.
