Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta
2 THE 15THBR1DGE HERALD Wednesday, July 28, 1971 Mortar fire crosses line By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Israeli and Syrian gunners ex- changed mortar fire across the ceasefire line on the occupied Golan Heights for the first time in more than a year today. The hour-long battle happened where the Israeli, Syrian and Jordanian frontiers converge, a military spokesman in Tel Aviv said. There were no Israeli cas- ualties. Assistant State Secretary Jo- seph J. Sisco of the United States arrived in Tel Aviv today to meet Israeli leaders on a mission to persuade Premier Gold Meir to give permission to open the Suez Canal. The Israelis also hope for an affirmative reply to requests for more weapons, especially Phan- tom fighter bombers, which are needed to balance the flow of new Soviet arms into Egypt. But reports from Washington indicated they would be disap- pointed unless they gave ground on their demands for n Suez agreement. The semi-official Cairo news- paper Al Ahram reported today that Egypt is conducting urgent consultations with Arab coun- tries to hold an Arab summit meeting in Tripoli, Libya, on the plight of the Arab Palestin- ian guerrillas in Jordan. Libya's strongman, Col. Muammar Ka- dafi, proposed such a meeting for Thursday, Al Ahram said Libya, Egypt and several other Arab countries accused Jordan of waging genocidal war against the guerrillas during the recent army crackdown. Kadafi has invited the heads of the so-called "revolutionary" regimes in the Arab world to the summit, excluding King Hussein of Jordan, King Faisal of Saudi Arabia and King Has- san II of Morocco. Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and Kuwait accepted Kadafi's ear- lier invitation, but plans were put off after the attempted coup in Sudan. Dishwasher detergent pack washed out by officials WASHINGTON (AP) The United States Food and Drug Administration told the Colgate Palmolive Co. Tuesday it must not market a new dishwasher Soup death blamed on employee NEWARK, N.J. (AP) A lawyer for Bon Vivant Inc. said Tuesday "human error" was re- sponsible for the batch of vi- chyssoise linked with the death of a Westchester County, N.Y. banker. Sheldon Schachter would not say how the error occurred, but added that the company's New- ark plant, where the soup was canned, is "immaculate." The plant has been closed since the federal government said a can of Bon Vivant vichys- soise, tainted with botulinus or- ganism, was responsible for the death. All of the company's products, canned under 30 different brand names, also have been recalled by the government. Schachter said that "facts well known to the government point out that the error by an employee in violation of the company's policy" allowed the bacteria, which attacks the cen- tral nervous system, to form. The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles in LETHBRIDGE detergent in a package resem- bling a milk carton. Malcolm W. Jensen, the FDA's product safety director, said he told company officials in a closed meeting that a better package must be found for the product Crystal Clear because it is "hazardous and can irritate the eyes." The FDA maintains the milk carton now used by Palmolive for test marketing of the deter- gent can be easily opened by children. It is demanding the substitution of a child-proof package before national distri- bution begins. Jensen said the company did not commit itself on any pack- aging change. A company spokesman hi New York City said the product is no more hazardous than other dishwasher detergents. Children are unlikely to eat the lemon- scented granules from the pale- yellow carton, he added. A Senate commerce subcom- mittee was told last week by a Seattle pediatrician, Dr. Abra- ham B. Bergman, that Crystal Clear was a product potentially dangerous to children because it could be mistaken for lemonade mixture. Contraceptive advertising gets go-ahead OTTAWA (CP) The first contraceptive advertise- ments for television have been approved by the Canadian Radio-Television Commission. R. L. Mackenzie of Toronto, president of Ortho Pharmaceu- tical Canada Ltd., said in a tele- phone interview here that the CRTC has approved two TV contraceptive advertise- ments with minor changes in wording. MR. LEO HOPMAN, this year's com- mittee chairman for the Lethbridge Jay- cee's Bar of Gold, campaign would like to express his sincere appreciation to fellow members, and the people of Lethbridge and Southern Alberta, for their overwhelming support, in helping to make this year's cam- paign a success. PUTTING SCRAPS TOGETHER Scraps of in bills from the 1930s are put together in Toronto. Mrs. Emily Coggan helps put the 'bills together with Patrol Sgt. Cyril Barnes, left, and superintendent Tom Cooke while her sons Kirk, 6, and Neil, 5, watch. Kirk is one of the eight children who found the bills three morrths ago. The money was not claimed and the youngster will divide it. Brief hits Alaska pipeline WASHINGTON (CP) A confidential report from a fed- eral wildlife official in Alaska, favoring a Canadian pipeline over an Alaskan line for oil from the Nortt: Slope, was tabled in Congress today by an ardent foe of the Alaska pipe- line proposal. Congressman Les Aspin, a Wisconsin Democrat, accused the United States interior de- partment of suppressing the re- port because it "discussed many of the expected envirbn- mental effects of the trans-A- laska pipeline in a much too di- rect and candid fashion." Aspin also said an interior de- partment report on the pipeline, expected this fall, will probably not discuss a possible Canadian route "even though various inte- rior officials, government agen- cies, almost all conservationists and many economists have urged that possible Canadian pipeline routes be fully studied Manitoba MLAs end long session WINNIPEG (CP) Manitoba) the boundaries of that western MLAs began a long awaited summer vacation Tuesday when the legislature prorogued after 77 silting days. Lieut.-Gov. W. J. McKeag dropped the curtain on the third session under Premier Ed Schreyer's NDP administration at p.m. CDT, after giving royal assent to a back-log of 72 of the 120-odd bills processed during the session. Before calling in Mr. McKeag, the house went through commit- tee-of-the-whole and tMrd read- ing on a bill to expand the boundaries of the city of Bran- don. There was also a period of heated debate as the govern- ment slipped in three standing committee reports in the dying minutes. The session began April 7, two days after Premier Ed Schrey- er's NDP government captured two seats from the opposition in byelections to gain a clear ma- jority in the legislature for the first time since coming to office in June 1969. While it was marked by none of the cliff-hanging drame that characterized passage of com- pulsory government automobile insurance legislation in 1970, the house did approve measures which will have a lasting effect on development of the prov- ince's two major urban centres. A bill setting up a single gov- ernment to replace the 12 mu- nicipalities of greater Winnipeg and an 11-year-old experiment1 in metropolitan government, re- ceived legislative approval last week after more than two months of debate. The Brandon bill will extend Crossfield man to stand trial CALGASY (CP) James Murray Walsh. 29, of Cross- field, was committed to stand trial on a charge of non-capital murder following a preliminary hearing here. He was charged after the May 6 death of Arthur George Biggins of Rocky Mountain House. The death occured at Crossfield, just north of Cal- gary. The hearing was told Diggins died by suffocating m his own blood. A pathologist testified the blood came from extensive hemorrhage of the brain, brought about by massive in- juries sustained through the forcceful application of a blunt instrument. Authorized by Richard Barton Campaign Orggnkallon Manitoba city about 2% times its present size and increase the city's industrial tax base. INTRODUCE NEW BILLS A number of bills designed to provide greater protection for consumers were introduced and passed, despite opposition charges that bureaucrats were getting too much power in the name of consumer protection. The province's liquor laws were given a further liberaliz- ing, with amendments passed to allow minors to drink in li- censed premises if they are having a meal with their par- ents. In its dying days, the legisla- ture also passed legislation re- moving a prohibition against po- lice going on strike and ap- proved a provision providing for a 550 rebate of education taxes paid by homeowners. MLAs also voted themselves a S3-per-eent pay raise, from a year in salary and ex- penses to During the session St. Boni- face MLA Larry Dasjardins, who was elected in 1969 as a Liberal but went through var- ious stages of affiliation in and out of the NDP caucus, finally declared himself a full-fledged NDP member. This, on top of the byelection victories, left the government with 31 seats in the 57-member house compared with 21 Con- servatives, three Liberals, one Social Credit and one Independ- ent. before any permits are issued for the Alaska pipeline." APPROVAL EXPECED The Alaska pipeline, esti- mated to cost billion, has been under consideration by the interior department for nearly a year. It is expected to be ap- proved, but with numerous safe- guards against pollution. The report released by Aspin was written. last December by Gordon Watson, Alaska director of the interior department's bu- reau of sport fisheries and wild- life. Many of its conclusions were ignored in a subsequent draft report by the department, Aspin said, and he tabled a memo from Watson which de- scribed the draft report as "dif- ficult, if riot impossible, to de- fend." Among Watson's comments last December, as quoted by Aspin, was this statement: "The Alaska-Canada pipeline would not require marine trans- portation, with its danger of massive, catastrophic oil spills and certainly of persistent and chronic pollution, and would re- move the threat of extensive loss to the rich fish and wildlife resources of Alaska's Prince William Sound and the tanker ship route to west coast ports." Complicated operation carried out TOKYO (Reuter) A Japa- nese heart surgeon said today he has successfully carried out a complicated to be the first of its a ventricle of the heart of an eight-year-old girl. Dr. Tatsuta Aral of the Tokyo Women's Medical College said the girl, Midcri Saito, will he discharged from hospital Thurs- day after the operation April 26 which lasted four hours and 35 minutes. He said the jirl's right ventri- cle was almost non-existent or about the size of a quail egg with no septum to divide right and left ventricles. Dr. Arai and his team cut off the troubled pulmonary valve and traces of the right ventricle and put in a man-made septum. Sudan's Communist chief hanged at Kobar prison KHARTOUM Abdel Kliatek Mahgoub, 48- year-old founder and leader ol the Sudanese Communist party, was hanged at Kobar prison today, it was officially announced here. Mahgoub became the 14th man to die in the purge of Su- dan's left wing since Presidenl Jaafar El-Nimeiry's dramatic return to power last Thursday, three days after a coup de- posed him. Nimeiry's government has made it clear it intends to crush the ultra left-wing op- Barnard answers charge CAPE TOWN (Eeuter) Heart-transplant pioneer Chris- tiaan Barnard hit back at his critics Tuesday while his lates patient became gravely ill. "I'm not in the least con- cerned if I'm the wonder boy o: the French or any other medi- cal he said in an interview. Barnard was speaking in reply to criticism in some medi- cal circles of his heart-lung transplant Sunday on 49-year- old Adrian Herbert. South African papers gave prominence Sunday to a Paris report of an attack on Barnard by Dr. Escoffier Lambiotte, the medical correspondent of the Paris newspaper Le Monde. Lambiotte suggested that the desire for personal publicity had prompted Barnard to cany oul the multiple transplant, the first in South Africa and only the fourth hi the world. Asked about the criticism, Barnard replied: "The opera- tion was Mr. Herbert's only hope. He had been kept alive only by extensive care here at Groote Schuur Hospital. Had he been discharged he would have been dead in a day or two. SAYS FAMILY ASKED Barnard added that Herbert's family had requested the opera- tion. Barnard said the operation in- volved "a completely new tech- nique in heart-lung transplanta- tion and certain new methods dealing with rejection." Rosaline Gunya, wife of Jack- son Gunya, whose heart and lungs were transplanted into Herbert, complained after the transplant that she had never been asked for permission to use the organs of her husband who died of head injuries. Groote Schuur officials said the necessary permission was granted as the law stipulates, by the attorney-general and other authorities. Commenting on the contro- versy raised by Mrs. Gunya's complaint, Barnard said: "We were under the impression he (Gunya) was a bachelor. We did everything strictly according to the book. We definitely did not know he was married. Every- thing possible was done for him and one of the best neurosur- geons in the economy operated on him."

Other trials remain per- haps as many as 30 but the signs are that from now on the sentences will be confined to prison terms. As Mahgoub went on trial in military court, another Com- munist, Joseph Garang, for- mer southern affairs minister, was hanged at Kobar prison for Iris part in the coup, foiled by loyalist troops rallying to Nimeiry. Garang was the second civil- ian to go to the gallows and the 13th man to be executed in the purge of the Sudanese left. The other 11 were army men shot by firing squads. Although the Soviet Union had published protests against the killing of Sudanese Com- munists, Sudan did not hesi- tate in executing both Mah- goub and Shafie Ahmed el- Sheikh, head of the Sudanese trade unions, hanged Monday. Mahgoub fought for his life in a stifling courtroom on the outskirts of Khartoum. He stood guarded by burly paratroopers wearing red be- rets and carrying automatic rifles, and faced three judges. The prosecutor carried a pistol at his waist. The prosecution produced Quebec singer files suit for arrest MONTREAL (CP) Quebec singer Pauline Julien has filed a damage action as a re- sult of her arrest and imprison- ment last October under the War Measures Act. In a declaration filed by law- yer Pothier Ferland, she alleges that her arrest and eight-day imprisonment lost her engage- ments and revenue as well as damaging her reputation. Maurice St. Pierre, Quebec Provincial Police director, was named as a defendant along with a Montreal constable and the directors of two Montreal jails. The lawyer said Miss Julien was a victim of abuse of power on the part of the defendants. two papers claiming they In-' eluded a list of people the Communists intended to put into the cabinet after the take- over from Nimeiry. The Communist Leader re- mained calm, but the presid- ing judges and prosecutor, all army officers, became visibly irritated as they received a MAHGOUB "no" or denial to each charge of complicity in the plot. "I knew there was discontent in the country, but I did not mastermind the he said. After about 45 minutes, the court was adjourned and cor- respondents were not allowed to attend the resumption. Malgoub, who founded tho Communist party in 1946, at- tended international party con- gresses in Moscow and other capitals. He was deported to Cairo in March, 1970, and was arrested on his return to the Sudan three months later. He -had es- caped from prison last month.
