Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta -M.nday, JUn. 4, 1973 THI LiTHMIDGI HIRALD 23 Pompidou's health No. 1 Paris rumor PARIS (Renter) President Pompidou's health was spot- lighted Sunday as perhaps the major French domestic political question after months of rumors that he is suffering from a mys- terious and persistent illness. News magaznes and the newspaper Le Monde joined in stressing the importance of the matter, which has already sharpened speculation about who could succeed Pompidou. Cyprus voters ignore bombs PAPHOS, Cyprus (AP) The people of Paphos voted over- whelmingly Sunday for a close associate of Cyprus President Makarios, despite nearly 50 bomb and shooting incidents launched by the anti-Makarios EOKA underground of Gen. George Grivas apparently in- tended to deter them from vot- ing. The violence, connected with the election of a new bishop for this western island district, left one Greek Cypriot dead and two others wounded, one of them a policeman. Police said the barrage of ex- plosions and gunfire was caused by the masked armed men of EOKA. EOKA leaflets scattered throughout the town and district at the time of the first ex- plosions Saturday pight called on the people to boycott the election "to prove to Makarios that Paphos will be the grave of his ambitions." Official results from 76 out of the total 87 polling stations, an- nounced by midnight Sunday night, indicated that 87 per cent of the electorate ignored the EOKA threats. They cast their votes for the sole candidate, Bishop Suffragan Chrysostcmos of Constantia, the closest aide to Makarios. Both Makarios and the bishop are natives of Paphos. ANIMAL COUNT PRETORIA, South Africa f AP) A recent animal census in Kruger National Park game reserve recorded elephants and buffalo. Pattern The magazine L'Express said the 61-year-old president had undergone a series of medical checks in a Paris hospital a few days before flying to Iceland for his summit talks with United States President Nixon last week. L'Express said Pompidou's unnamed illness is being treated with cobalt rays and cortisone. There have been similar re- ports from unofficial sources in recent weeks, but presidential spokesman have not announced anything more serious than in- fluenza. PUT ON WEIGHT Pompidou has put on weight recently and has been reported to have had some difficulty in walking. "The fact is that the only real political question now being posed in Paris is that of Mr. Pompidou's the maga- zine Le Point said. L'Express called for an offi- cial medical bulletin on the president's health to clear up the matter while leading politi- cal commentator Pierre Via- nsson-Ponte wrote in Le Monde that there now is "an entirely new and already important" factor to French political life. In particular, the health ques- tion has raised new uncertainty about whether Pompidou will run for re-election in 1976. Whether he does or not, the race to become the government candidate for the presidency has already started, with fi- nance minister Valery Giscard D'Sstaing and former prime minister Jacques Chaban-Del- mas both making strong bids to become his successor.

Prison change denied OTTAWA fCP) A spokes- man for the federal solicitor- generals department denied re- ports published Saturday that Canadian medium security penitentiaries are being up- graded to maximum security status. He said maximum security procedures on perimeters of the prisons are being strengthened because of the recent rash of escapes, but to upgrade their status would require massive construction programs. The Calgary Herald said it learned of the change in status from a secret directive sent to prison directors from Paul Fa- guy, commissioner of peniten- tiaries. The paper said that gun tow- rs are to be constructed, moto- rized armed patrols imple- mented, second fences con- structed and electronic devices installed. It said it learned of the move from sources in the penitenitary service. The department spokesman said there "seams to be some confusion about the directive. SIX AFFECTED He said the prisons involved are Drumheller, Alta.: Matsqui, B.C.; Joyceville, Collins Bay. Ont.; Cowansville, Que. and Springhill, N.S. The increased security is needed, he said, because of overcrowding in prisons which forces potential escapers to be placed in lower security pris- ons. In Drumheller. Stan Scrutton, acting prison director, said he doubted the paper's report. "I doubt very much that we are being upgraded to a max- imum security he said in an interview. "Certainly we have no word on this or the re- ported changes. There is a sur- vey being carried out with a new to strengthening security, but we've had no word on any proposals yet."
