Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta King no longer reigns in Greece By ROD CURRIE Canadian Press Staff Writer "The king old Greek politician George Papandreou used to ciy, "but the people rule." It was a slogan that rallied enthusiasm for papandreou's populist cause at a time when young King Constantino's in- fluence already was being slowly dissipated in yet another bitter quarrel with the then-pre- mier. which failed miserably, he still: for them, since the NATO min- maintained from exile some ist_ers are Amsterdam next the Greek issue still is occupy- ing world attention. vague ambition of eventually regaining the throne. Now, the monarch has ironi- cally been placed to the politi-' Nevertheless, most observers cal left of the ultra-right-wing' believe the colonels are deter- mined to stay on the course they have set for themselves whatever the criticism from rulers. Although he has stated he is ready to fight "like a soldier' for his country, there is little or no indication that the people are ready to fight with him. Op- position to the colonels may eventually develop within But today the king does not i Greece, but observers suggest reign, nor do the people rule. Constantine, 33 and living in exile in Rome for the last five years, has been stripped of his crown. "The colonels" are in dictatorial control of the new republic they proclaimed last week. Papandreou has been in his grave for five years. All reports indicate that the Greek people are quite com- placent about the sudden de- cision of the military to strip Constantine of his last shred of hope of regaining the MAY BRING TROUBLE But outside observers are speculating that the colonels bold move may have unfortu- nate results for Greece in her future role in NATO and the European Common Market. When the colonels, in their military coup of 1968, pro- claimed a constitution calling for a "crowned Constantine still had some hope of maintaining influence. Even after his counter-coup attempt less than a year later, hind a leader far to the left of Constantine. FOREIGN HEAT ON Meanwhile, the most pressing problem of the leaders of the new republic is foreign, not do- mestic, reaction to their latest move. In Strasbourg, the Common Market parliamentarians have urged member countries to ap- ply collective pressure on the Greek government to restore human rights and democratic freedoms. At the same session, Sir Christopher Soames of Britain, the Common Markets external affairs chief, said that Greece was further than ever from be- coming a full member of the community. In a related move, the Dutch government has said it will question the eligibility of Greece to remain a 'member of the Atlantic alliance. Thus the colonels' decision came at a particularly bad time NATO allies or Common Mar- ket neighbors. It is felt that the NATO al- liance needs Greece as much as Greece needs the alliance. The only thing likely to change the colonels' outlook, ob- servers say, is an upsurge of organized opposition from within Greece, and there are no indications that such opposition is building.

His bundle was la- belled "The Steiner Case." The cartoon reflected a home- grown scandal over espionage and alleged government vote- buying which lias pushed the Watergate bugging case and the British sex scandal cff the front pages of West German news- papers. If there's any resemblance to Watergate in the Steiner affair, it appears to lie less in the sub- stance than in the way that each day brings some new, con- tradictory statements from a bewildering character cast. The furor revolves around an obscure former opposition legis- lator named Julius Steiner. WAS DOUBLE AGENT From his temporary self-im- posed exile abroad, the 49-year- old Stenier told several West German publications that he acted as a double agent. He said he took orders from West German securitv men to main- tain contacts with East German spy-masters who wanted infor- mation on his Christian Demo- crat party. Steiner also with unconfirmed reports alleg- ing that two opposition men who abstained in the key ballot were bribed to do so by mem- bers of Brandt's governing So- cial-Liberal coalition. Steiner steadfastly denied that he took or was offered money. But his revelations were swiftly followed by events that alternately threatened to cast suspicion on the governing coa- lition or confuse the issue. announced that he was one of two hitherto un- identified opposition legislators i whose secret abstentions nar- 'rowly averted passage of a no- confidence motion in parliament in April 1972.

Inge was born in Independ- ence on May 3, 1913, graduated from the University of Kansas and taught at Stephens College in Missouri and at Washington University in St. Louis. He then joined the St. Louis Star-Times as a drama critic. The former Liberal premier dealt mainly with the com- munes of China which he saw as a means of alleviating the grinding poverty of a large part of the world. Except for the "little bit of il- legality" .involved in wresting the land from the Chinese land- lords, the communes now were much like North American co- operatives.

The bill, which now goes to the House of representatives, covers methadone, morphine, numorphan and demerol. It would require practitioners who dispense the drugs in the treatment of narcotics addicts to register with the federal gov- ernment and to satisfy federal standards in addict treatment programs. The attorney-general could deny, revoke or suspend a prac- titioner's registration for failure to comply with the new stand- ards.
