Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID - Thursday, June 10, 1971 w.vA,v*.:ft^Xff.T^JWXS�nw.'.w.,.w.v.'.v, Chile's left-wing government was plunged into a major crisis Wednesday following the assassination of a former vice-president and outspoken anti-leftist. Edmundo Perez Zujovic, who as interior minister was No. 2 man in President Eduardo Frei's Christian Democratic ad- the staff of the University of Toronto after he retires as president July 1. The university announced that Mr. Bissell will assume the role of a professor when his 13-year tenure as president ends. He will do some teaching in his new position, but much of his time will be devoted to research and writing.  * * Dave Steuart, Saskatchewan's provincial treasurer, looked across a half-filled banquet room at Saskatoon and said: "I think this is a rotten, lousy turnout." He said too many Liberals here were not prepared to show their support publicly in the campaign for the June 23 provincial election, in case it hurt business or irritated their neighbors. "The least you can do in the next couple of weeks is to sacrifice your business, your time, even yourself." EDMUNDO ZUJOVIC . . . Death sparks crisis ministration, was ambushed I Tuesday by three young men who police said were believed to be members of an ultra-left extremist organizaiton, the Organized Vanguard of the People. President Salvador Allende, a Marxist, declared in a broadcast that the assassination was "a deliberate provocation intended to alter the institutional life of the country." * * * Mayor Rod Sykes bought milk, sandwiches and soup for a group of transient youths this week after they had gathered in front of city hall to protest a shortage of food in city youth hostels. Spokesmen for the youths said the hostels have run out of food money provided under a program financed by the provincial government. A regular summer program was to start today to distribute food through the YWCA at the expense of the Alberta government. Other costs of caring for transient youth will be shared 80 per cent by the provincial government and 20 per cent by the citv. * * * Three daughters of the late Canadian artist Charles W. Jefferys have come out in support of Imperial Oil Ltd.'s refusal to allow his drawings to be used to illustrate a book on the history of Quebec. In a letter released Wednesday Elizabeth Fee and Margaret Stacey of Toronto and Barbara Allen of Edmonton said they "wish to make it absolutely clear that our father would not have wanted his drawings used." The book, Le Petit Manuel d'Histoire du Quebec, an English translation, was written by Leandre Bergeron, a professor of French-Canadian literature at Sir George Williams University in Montreal, and takes the view Quebec has been op- Bodies sought MOOSE JAW (CP) - The search for the bodies of the president of the Saskatchewan Liberal Association and another Saskatoon businessman was to resume today near a sunken aircraft in Buffalo Pound Lake, 15 miles north of here. R. W. Thompson, the Liberal association president, and Norm Caswell disappeared Tuesday when their float-equipment plane sank in the lake. RCMP divers found the aircraft about half a mile from shore Wednesday and a jacket belonging to Mr. Caswell, owner of the plane. Mr. Thompson had been in the Moose Jaw area in connection with the June 23 provincial election campaign. An eyewitness to the accident, Andrew Rankin of Moose Jaw said two men were standing on the aircraft wing yelling for help moments before it appeared to slide into the water. Mr. Rankin said the plane was taxiing toward shore but turned and began to taxi away from the beach. "The aircraft appeared to open full throttle and I thought they were going to take off." Mr. Thompson and Mr. Caswell both were experienced pilots. Mr. Thompson served with the Royal Air Force during the. Second World War. * *  Claude Bissell will remain on Ship doors barred VANCOUVER (CP) - Locked doors barred an escape route for crew members aboard the ill-fated Norwegian cruise ship Meteor, a Meteor stewardess told a coroner's inquest Wednesday. Esther Roska, 22, said the doors were locked at night to prevent crew members from going into the passenger section of the ship. Some bodies were found against one of the doors after 32 crew members died in a fire aboard the ship May 22 as the Meteor steamed down Georgia Strait toward Vancouver at the end of an Alaskan cruise. Miss Roska, speaking through an interpreter, said the only way to open the doors was by using a key from the passenger side, or by breaking through a crash panel at the bottom. She said she did not try to kick in the crash panel but could not remember why. The inquest was adjourned Indefinitely after hearing evidence from Miss Roska and two other female crew members. RCMP requested the adjournment pending analysis of certain exhibits. Strom is constitutional told to change issues stand EDMONTON (CP)-Premier Harry Strom must radically change his government's position on a number of issues if Alberta is to make a constructive contribution to next week's federal-provincial constitutional conference in Victoria, Alberta New Democratic Party Leader Grant Notley said today. Mr. Notley said in a prepared statement provincial government must repudiate Separatist statement, made by M and M Consultants Ltd. Preston Manning, son of former Alberta Social Credit premier, Senator Ernest Manning, said in a brief Tuesday to the parliamentary committee on the constitution, right of suc- cession must be considered in a revised Canadian constitution. "The premier must remember that not withstanding historical agreements, Canadians must resolve their regional conflicts within a federal structure. The real test of political leadership is to unite Canadians, not divide them," Mr. Notley said. The province must also reverse its destructive opposition to tax reform. The Strom government had insisted that taxation fairness must be sacrificed to stimulate economic growth. "This is a totally false tradeoff since the Carter report revealed there is no conflict between equity of the taxation treatment on the one hand and economic growth on the other." Dog handler revolt hits North pole expedition YELLOW KNIFE, N.W.T. (CP) - A revolt by Eskimo dog handlers from Greenland has forced a Canadian to withdraw from a polar expedition organized by Italian millionaire Guido Monzino. The expedition is seeking to duplicate Admiral Robert Peary's historic first trek to the northpoie. Russ Hall, head of trapline management for the territorial government, said in an interview that he and the expedition dentist were asked to withdraw Several hurt in Canso scuffle CANSO, N.S. (CP) - Several persons were injured in a scuffle between fishermen and Acadia Fisheries Ltd. workers here Wednesday night. RCMP in Guysborough, N.S'., declined immediate comment, but witnesses said two or three men had been beaten, including Roland Bond, a fishermen, who was taken to hospital for treatment of head injuries. Witnesses also said that Edison Lumsden, president of the Canso local of the United Fishermen and Allied Workers Union, had been knocked unconscious. The town has been the centre of a labor dispute over whether the UFAW or the Canadian Food and Allied Workers Union represents trawler fishermen employed by Acadia. when it became evident remaining dogsleds could carry supplies for only six of the eight original expedition members. Mr.Hall said the Eskimo dog handlers pulled out of the expedition and took 10 dogsleds with them because they were unhappy about crossing the polar sea ice. At last report the expedition was stranded on an ice island about half way between Cape Columbia and the pole, 1,800 miles north of Edmonton. There is a United States research station on the island. Mr. Hall, the lone Canadian member of the expedition, said Mr. Monzino delayed the start of the expedition during March to collect more and more supplies.

Women are deaf to cigs warning OTTAWA (CP) - The proportion of men cigarette smokers dropped significantly in the last seven years, but women seemed deaf to appeals to stop because of the risks of heart and lung disease. More girls in their late teens have admitted they are smokers. Women who smoked regularly were a virtually-unchanged percentage of the population in the survey period. These were major points in an households by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics for the federal health department. The survey showed the proportion of men aged 20 or more who regularly smoked cigarettes dropped to 51 per cent in 1970 from a high of nearly 58 per cent in 1965. DECLINE EVIDENT The decline was evident in every male age group except 15-19, where the proportion hit a new high of 35.8 per cent who smoked regularly. The survey defined a regular cigarette smoker as one who usually smoked cigarettes every day. Although a smaller proportion of women smoked than men, their picture showed no significant change since surveying began in 1964. Women over age 20 who were regular cigarette smokers represented 33.6 per cent of all women. Low point in the seven years in this category was 32.3 in 1964. Regular cigarette smokers among girls in the 15-19 bdacket climbed by one-third- to 25 per cent from the low of 19 in 1965. Public health authorities suggest this may reflect greater willingness among girls to admit smoking in 1970 than in earlier years as well as that more are starting to smoke at earlier ages than before. Among other survey results: -Occasional smoking appears to be little changed throughout Named Salesman of the Month the survey-about three per, cent of persons smoking cigarettes once in a while with the greatest proportion of about four per cent in the ages 15-19 and 20-24. -Men seemed to stop smoking entirely when they changed smoking habits. No noticeable shift occurred to pipe or cigars from cigarettes. -The proportion of men who smoke pipe and-or cigarettes only stayed about the same-8.9 per cent in 1964 against 7.9 last year. -Non-smokers among men age 20 or more climbed by one-quarter to 38.1 per cent from 30.6 in 1965. Among adult women it was unchanged at 63.4 per cent. -Non-smoking men totalled an estimated 2.37 million, up 400,000 from the number there would have been at 1965 smok- Collins presents credentials in Peking TOKYO (AP) - Ralph Edgar Collins, the new Canadian ambassador to China, presented credentials in Peking today to C h i n a's vice-chairman, Tung Pi-wu, the New China news agency reported. ing rates.
