Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGi HERALD Saturday, July 1979 Hews in brief U of A honors late chancellor EDMONTON (CP) The high rise tower in phase two of Jflchener Park, the Univer- sity of Alberta's married stu- dent housing complex, will be named Galbraith House in honor of the University's for- mer chancellor, it was an- nounced Friday. Dr. F. P. Galbraith, former publisher and editor of the Red Deer Advocate, died on May 16, 1970, six weeks before he was to retire after six yean as the chancellor of the university. The tower is the centre of the recently completed phase two of the married student housing complex. K will contain 160 two- bedroom units. In addition there are 72 two-bedroom and 16 three-bedroom apartments in low rise apartment buildings in phase two, giving a total of 248 units. Construction started in 1972. Dictator flouts people's will ATHENS (AP) President George Papadopoulos told Greeks Friday that regardless of how they vote in Sunday's referendum, his regime win re- main in power. Six leaders of former demo- cratic regimes branded the ref- erendum a "fraud" and a "shame for Greece." Papadopoulos said in a radio and television address: "It must be stressed that the revolution exists, will not re- sign, and will not be overthrown by a vote of rejection." The referendum will require vTVers simply to vote "yes" or "no." An affirmative vote will con- firm Papadopoulos as president of the newly formed Greek re- public, approve the ouster of King Constantine and ratify some constitutional changes. A negative vote will signify dis- approval of these developments. Cypriot justice minister missing NICOSIA. (AP) The Cypriot Justice minister was kidnapped from his home here by two armed, masked men during a night of about 40 retaliatory bomb-throwings by rival politi- cal factions. An official announcement said the minister, Christos Vakis, still was missing hours after two men in military uniforms took him from his home with the promise he would return in two hours. Vakis was at home with his wife when the men entered and said: "Our leader wants you, and we assure military honor no harm wiH be- fall you and that we shall re- turn you to your home within two hours." The reference to "our leader" gave rise to speculation the kid- nappers were members of the underground of Gen. George Grivas, who is waging a cam- paign to overthrow President Archbishop Makarios and merge the Mediterranean island republic with Greece. Security operation sweeps Belfast BELFAST (AP) Terrorists bombed a country tavern in Northern Ireland early today as more than British troops cordoned off parts of Belfast in their second major security sweep in a week. Five masked men entered the Grange bar in Grange village, a predominantly Roman Catholic area west of Belfast, and dumped a bomb, the army said. One man who tried to take the bomb outside was pistol- whipped by the raiders, be- lieved to be Protestant ex- tremists. No one was injured when the bomb exploded, but the bar was badly damaged. Another bomb exploded in Belfast's Ardoyne district, a staunch Roman CathoQc quar- ter. Mediator sought in pulp dispute Saskatoon veterinarian says 6YES9 Is it to feed grain to cattle? By JIM NEAVES SASKATOON (CP) _ With starvation facing many areas of the world, it is obscene to take wheat and barley that could be used to feed humans and feed it to animals, says a Saskatoon veterinarian. Dr. Frank Loew, animal re- sources centre director at the University of Saskatchewan, says this view is held in many of the food-short developing countries. But under the exist- ing economic system, "ob- viously it is not obscene" from the Canadian farmers point of view. Admitting many of his col- leagues consider his views Dr. Loew says he is concerned that a more ra- tional approach has to be found. "Right now, we're feeding food to animals that humans can eat and use more ef- ficiently." Recently, Dr. J. M. Bell, head of the university's ani- mal science department, in a speech critical of the ban on the use of growth-promoting hormones in cattle raising, said the ban meant more grain had to be used to achieve comparab'a growth rates in cattle without the use of the drug dJetfaybttlbeetool Dr. Bell said this would in- volve enough grain to terms of human food to provide the total caloric needs of a nation of 12 million for one year. Dr. Loew said cattle have a special digestive system that allows diem to turn grass and other edible by energy which, in VANCOUVER (CP) The pulp and paper industrial rela- tions bureau has asked the provincial government's medi- ation branch to appoint a medi- ator in its dispute with the pulp and paper workers of Can- ada, a spokesman said Friday.

Speed 'could have caused9 train mishap near Creston YAHK, B.C. (CP) A CP, Rail investigator has suggested excessive speed could be re- sponsible for a train derailment here Friday in which two men died. The bodies of the two, an en- gineer and a fireman, both of Cranbrook, B.C.. were removed from the wreckage more than five hours after the accident. Rescuers had use cutting tor- ches. Names of the inrn were not immediately released. The accident occurred about 25 miles east of Creston, B.C., in southeastern British Colum- bia. Dr. Quade Cfcristoph, a Ger- man vacationing in B.C.. hap- pened to pass the accident and attempted to save one of the two men, but he died about half an hour after the accident. Gerry Clarke of Cranbrook, conductor on the train, was taken to hospital with minor knee injuries. A fourth member of the train crew was not in- jured. An investigation of the acci- dent was to begin today. Forty-eight units of the 65-car tran headed for Cranbrook, B.C.. leftlhe tracks at the junc- tion of the Kettle Valley Rail- way and the Spokane and Idaho Railway lines. The train carried lumber, fer- tilizer and lead zinc concen- trates, which spilled down a 60- foot embankment into a pas- ture. Tfae derailment tore up 600 feet of Politicians' private lives 'not sacred' By JAMES GERSTENZANG. WASHINGTON (AP) Politi- cal campaigns may. focus on more than the candidates' views on issues, says John Ehr- lichman. Drinking problems, sexual habits and domestic situations also ,are valid campaign sub- President Nixon's former chief domestic adviser told the Senate Watergate committee Friday. "I know of my own knowl- edge of incumbents in office who are not discharging their obligations to their constituents because of their drinking he said. "Constituents at home have no way of knowing that you can go over here in the gallery- of Congress and watch a member totter onto tie floor in a condi- tion of at least partial in- ebriation which' would preclude him making any sort of sober judgment on the issues that confront this country." Senator Lowell Weicker (Rep. questioning Ehrlich- man. asked: "Do you really want to bring the political system of the United States, of our cam- paigns, down to the level which you are talking about right Ehrlichman answered: "I know hi your situation your life- style undoubtedly is impeccable and there wouldn't be anything at issue like that. POSITION CRITICIZED, "Maybe my standards are all haywire, that everybody hi the Congress ought to be immune from scrutiny on that subject but that seems to me to be an indefensible position on your the former White House aide said. Weicker and Ehrlichman squared off after the Con- necticut Republican questioned Ehrlichman about the hiring of former New York policeman Anthony Ulasewicz to handle in- vestigations for the White House. Ehrlichman defended the hiring. "I am quite satisfied that our system, our institutions, are perfectly capable of passing de- cent judgment, fair judgment, hard judgment on political fig- ures, public officials, without the covert operations of men like Mr. Weicker said. Ehrlichman stressed that the only investigation of an individ- ual politician ducted while Ulasewicz con- under Ehrlich- man's supervision concerned Senator Edward Kennedy (Dem. Mass.) and the incident in which a young woman, Mary Jo Kopechne; died in Kennedy's car at Chappaquiddick Island, Mass. The sexual habits, drinking problems, domestic difficulties and personal social habits of Nixon's pob'tical opponents were investigated by Ulasewicz, the former policeman, told the com- mittee last week. __ MEDIA RULE CITED Ehrlichman said such habits wouldn't reach the public unless political opponents brought them out He said the news media has an unwritten rule against publicizing such situ- ations. teen aftereS.) s m May fw tf-s FEEDERS FARMERS WELDERS HANDYMEN HOMEOWNERS carry cempIeM STEEl IN RATS ANGLES CHANNELS BEAMS WIDE RANGES lAflS "DUNGS SQUARES PLATES SHEETS RECTANGULAR AND SQUARE TUBING REINFORCING STEEl WIRE MESH PIPE GALORE FOR FENCE POSTS CLOTHESLINE POLES CARPORT COLUMNS OR FOR ANT OTHER USE YOU MAT HAVE.

In other Watergate develop- ments "Friday: Watergate prose- cutor Archibald Cox said he has asked the White House to hand over files on the International Telephone and Telegraph Corp. He said the files were "of ut- most importance" and that the request had been pending for sometime, Cox did not say might be in the ITT file but his office has under investigation the ad- ministration's handling of an anti-trust case against the con- glomerate.

Feeling grain to cattfe was unnatural and had resulted in the increased use of drugs to maintain the health of anl- .mals fed in concentrated numbers in feedlots. "We could be feeding double the number of people by letting the animals 'eat what humans can't eat and using (he grains to feed people also." Dr. Loew said that for many years there has been talk of opening up Canada's northland, an area where there are millions of acres of scrubby grassland, "lots of green growth in the summer- time that does nobody any good." MAY BE Moving cattle-raising oper- ations to this northern area "may be half a pipe-dream find while I don't know how it could be done, it has many attractive features." One of the problems is that selling grain for cattle feeing has provided extra income for grain producers and has be- come more intense since 1968- 69, when export sales of wheat declined drastically. Canada's farmers have.'to earn a living so they can't give product away. This situation, Dr. Loew says, is compounded by economics un- der which many of the devel- oping nations lack the finan- cial resources to buy grain. "I feel, with sr lot of other people in Saskatchewan, that I don't like living in a prov- ince that rides high economic- ally when the Chinese people are me that is morally he said. "I want to emphasize that I'm not saying that today's farmers are corrupt and ob- scene on an individual basis because it is the system un- der which we are operating."
