Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 14, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednejdov, Juni 14, 1772 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID New John Deere centre plaimed REGINA, (CP) Announce- ment was made today of con- struction of a million bf- :ice anct distribution centre this year by John Deere Ltd. The announcement was made in a ioint news release by Mayor 'Harry Walker and J. H. Graflund, president of John Deere. It is CNpccted 100 persons will be employed at the centre, many of whom will be trans- ferred from the company's existing building in the city which is 60 years old. Quebec uses new strategy to fight organized crime MONTREAL (CP) The Ga- zette says a recent raid by Montreal police on a cheese fac- tory represents "a major stra- tegic departure" in the fight against organized crime in Quebec. The newspaper says that until now the Montreal police depart- ment's organized crime section has limited its activities to gath- ering and exchanging informa- tion. "Now it feels ready to move into a more aggressive posture, aimed at if possible, driving out of business of the enterprises it has been The police efforts may help bring Quebec up to the level of crime-fighting that has been in effect in the U.S. for more than a decade, the newspaper adds. "But they won't break the hold of organized crime in Quebec, any more than the same types of measures have succeeded in doing in the U.S." The Gazette story, by Geoi'ge Radwanski, says organized crime runs deep in Quebec and its criminal activities, most centred in Montreal, include il- legal gambling and bookmak- ing, fraudulent bankruptcies, narcotics smuggling, bootleg liquor, fraud, extortion and prostitution. In addition, organized crime owns or controls hundreds of "legitimate" businesses, includ- ing dairy and cheese industries, construction, food processing and wholesaling, entertainment, hotels, real estate, slocks and bonds and vending machines. "In Montreal alone, there are upwards of 170 separately incor- porated companies with direct ties to organized crime. Many of these companies operate more than one business outlet." The story says the central force of organized crime in Quebec "is a family of Italian origin closely affiliated with the Mafia organization in the U.S., but highly jealous of its inde- pendence as far as local deci- sion-making is concerned." It adds that the Montreal- based head of this operation is low-ranking in terms of the over-all North American struc- ture but is an important link in the international Mafia network. Identity of the gangsters is no mystery. "Police and Quebec justice department files arc bulging, in fact, with data on the activities anil contacts of 241 persons who arc engaged full-time in organ- ized crime activities." The story says organized crime ill Quebec has succeeded in enlisting the collusion of offi- cials, both elected and ap- pointed, in provincial and mu- nicipal governments. OPIUM SEIZED HONG KONG (AP) Cus- toms officials seized 180 pounds of morphine and pounds of. opium valued at 52.4 million in a raid Wednesday oa a cargo junk. Four persons were ar- rested, officials said. JOHN CONNALLY So long won't last WASHINGTON (CP) Jolm Connally suddenly quit as treasury secretary and flew home to his Texas ranch, offi- cial Washington said so long, but not goodbye. About the only tiling on which all agreed was that Connally probably would be back, possi- bly as vice-president, or secre- tary of state. Maybe even as president some day. Even though he now is far away, dispatched by President Nixon on a 14-country mission to meet heads of state in Latin America, the Asian subconti- nent and Southeast Asia, his name is as much in the political spotlight here as ever. President Nixon, who doesn't usually'indulge in this sort of caper, is reported to be thor- oughly enjoying all the breath- less rumors and counter-rumors being passed about. In fact, he set the stage him- self with an unusual show of near boundless admiration and regard for Connally when the tall Texan resigned in May. Then he reiterated it last week with the flowery send-off he gave Connally on his overseas tour. Ever since he became the only Democrat in Republican Nixon's cabinet, Connally has frequently dominated the Wash- ington scene, orchestrating Nix- on's new economic policy with its temporary 10-per-cent im- port surtax, and the domestic wage-price freeze. In the proc- ess, he has angered many U.S. allies and trading partners and at times sent shock-waves through the state department, where senior personnel were said to be dismayed by treas- ury's interference in the diplo- matic field. Those who challenge the idea of Connally as vice-presidential running mate in November say that a decision to dump Vice- President Spiro Aguew, who has demonstrated his loyalty to Nixon and has a strong constitu- ency among right-wing voters, would hurt Nixon's image. Agnew himself has said that, although he has not yet been in- vited to run again, he could not imagine that the Republican convention in August would set- tle for a man who was still a registered Democrat in June. On the oilier hand, the step from right-wing Democrat to Republican would probably not present an agonizing decision for Connally. His other attrib- utes include his demonstrated ability as spokesman for the Nixon administration and the possibility he could help Nixon carry the important state of Texas, which Nixon failed to do in 1968. Also, if the Democrats nomi- nate left-leaning Senator George McGovern, as seems likely, Connally on the Nixon ticket could help attract dissatisfied middle-road and right-wing Democrats into the Nixon camp, observers suggest. As vice-president, Connally could be considered to have the inside track for the Republican presidential nomination in 1974, when Nixon would be barred by law from another term. As for the state department post, part of that rumor is that State Secretary William Rogers, a long-time close friend of Nixon, might be happy to return to the comparative calm of his prosperous law practice, leav- ing the way open to Connally. Whatever becomes of him, the current overseas assignment can only enhance Conn ally's diplomatic credentials. "It is comments the Washington Star, "the blunt but engaging Texan might pick up less threatening diplomatic manners and acquire more un- derstanding of the problems of our friends abroad."
