Chicken board said favored WINNIPEG (CP) Most Western Canadian government, consumer and marketing councils say they favor establishing a national chicken marketing agency. They made the statement at the last of three hearings on the question last week. The hearings were held by the Canadian Broiler Council, the body which would be responsible for the setting up of a marketing agency. Representatives of 17 Uniform zoning possible GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) Gov. Thomas Judge says statewide zoning is one way to cope with increasing demands for Montana's land and natural resources. During a land-use seminar, Judge did not endorse zoning but said there has been a successful statewide zoning program in Hawaii. provincial government and marketing groups and four consumer interest groups presented their views. One area of differing viewpoints was the question of import quotas. Provincial marketing boards from all four Western provinces stated their concern about surplus poultry products from the United States pouring into Canada, but other groups argued that imports could be regulated to create a steady flow and stabilize prices. Ruth Tetheridge, representing the Manitoba Consumer Bureau, said she feared producer power on a national board could result in the ignoring of consumers' interest. Howard Palkenberg, chairman of the hearings, said evaluation of the proposals presented at the hearings will be made available in about a week and a report on the proposals presented will be made at the federal-provincial conference to be held in July. Earlier hearings were held on May 27 in Ottawa and May 29 in St. John's, Newfoundland. Black September guerrillas9 trial starts in Sudan KHARTOUM (Reuter) Eight Black September Palestinian guerrillas went on trial before the Sudanese high court here Saturday charged with the murder of three Western diplomats at the Saudi Arabian Embassy in March last year. All eight pleaded not guilty to the charge, which carries a possible death penalty under Sudanese law. The three States Ambassador Cleo Noel; his charge d'affaires, Curtis Moore, and Belgian Charge d'Affaire Guy taken hostage and later shot dead during a 60-hour takeover of the embassy which began March 1, 1973. The Saudi ambassador and the Jordanian charge d'affaires were also taken hostage but freed unharmed when the guerrillas finally surrendered to Sudanese troops. The eight guerrillas burst into the embassy with guns blazing during a reception, seized their hostages and issued a series of demands including the release of Sirhan Sirhan, convicted killer of U.S. Senator Robert Kennedy, and Abu Daud, the Al Fatah Palestinian guerrilla leader held by Jordan. They also asked to be flown to the U.S. But Jordan refused to consider the demand. U.S. President Nixon rejected any threat of blackmail and the U.S. state department said there was no question of the guerrillas being flown to the U.S. The guerrillas told the court today that when they killed the three diplomats they were acting under provocation by Nixon's refusal to meet their demands. Diem balked at Kennedy plan Monday, Jam 3. 1974 _ THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 5 CAREERS PARIS (AP) A former high-level Saigon government official says the late South Vietnamese President Ngo Dinh Diem was overthrown by a Washington-instigated coup because he refused to allow United States troops to be sta- tioned in South Vietnam. Tran Van Khiem, one of Diem's top advisers, claims the late U.S. President John F. Kennedy wanted to station troops in South Vietnam as a pretext for attacking Chinese nuclear bases. With U.S. troops in the South, Khiem says, Kennedy could then claim to be protecting them by launching massive air strikes against the Communists and eventually against China it- self. Writing in the monthly diplomatic supplement of the newspaper Le Monde, Khiem says Diem refused because he believed the Kennedy request would lead to the devastation of his country. Diem prepared, instead, to send an emissary to Hanoi to try to make peace with North Vietnam and arrange for the neutralization of Southeast Asia, Khiem says. But the coup in November, 1963, installed a pro-American government which welcomed U.S. troops. Khiem was the brother-in- law of Ngo Dinh Nhu, Diem's brother and widely regarded as the real power in South Vietnam. Nhu and the president were killed by the rebels. Kennedy wrote to Diem at the end of 1962, Khiem says, and that Diem replied: "South Vietnam does not need American troops to defend it. I regret, but I cannot accept your proposal to introduce soldiers. Moreover, I request that the Americans here now should be withdrawn as soon as pos- sible." From that moment, Khiem says, the South Vietnamese leadership was fearful of a coup and set up an elaborate system to defend itself. But senior military officers "bought with suitcases full of dollars" trapped military loyalists and staged the coup "which was directed by the CIA (U.S. Central Intelligence Khiem says.

Subversives New York Times Service LISBON Many Portuguese, and just about every foreign diplomat in Lisbon, spend a good deal of time these days wondering who holds the actual power in this country. Who, they ask, has the ultimate word on such pressing problems as the future of Portugal's African colonies or the kind of society this small nation is going to build for itself? Some of the most experienced observers of the Portuguese scene say that after 48 years of dictatorial rightist rule a diarchy or government by two authorities has taken over. The two new power centres are a group of armed forces officers who plotted the military coup of April 25 and the left-cf-centre politicians who form the new government, set up on May 16. The trouble is that the dynamic part of the military element in the diarchy still does not care for public exposure, and that politicians, some of whom have just returned after long exile, do not seem to know what is going on in the armed forces. President Antonio de Spinola, the 64-year-old army general who has a reputation as a "Prussian" mainly because he wears a monocle, is the link and, presumably, the referee between the two power groups. It is characteristic of the ambiguous situation that nobody seems to know to what extent Spinola expresses the decisions of the shadowy military group, and how much he is able to persuade it to accept his own views, or those of the politicians in the government. It is widely believed here that Spinola pushed through the authorization for Dr Marcello Caetano and Admiral Amerigo Thomaz to leave the country last week because he had personally promised the two aging officials on April 25 that they could count on no worse fate than exile if they surrendered quickly.

Olympic STRin list to be abolished WASHINGTON (AP) President Nixon intends to abolish the United States attorney-general's list of so- called subversive organizations, Nixon ad- ministration sources say. The White House has drafted an executive order doing away with the list, and plans to sign it, the sources report. Attorney-General William Saxbe recommended the move, say the sources in the White House and justice department. "The list is irrelevant and legally we're in a bind on a White House official said today. An official of the department's criminal division has called it 'absolutely worthless.'' In 1947, President Harry Truman ordered the department to maintain a list of "totalitarian, Fascist, Communist or subversive" organizations as a tool for screening applicants for government jobs. Four years later, the Su- preme Court ruled that no group could be placed on the list without a hearing. Sub- sequent court decisions blocked the government from refusing to hire an applicant solely because of his membership in one of the questionable groups. The list then dropped into obscurity.
