Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, June 19, 1974 THE LETHBP'.DGE HERALD Canadian troops may break camp again ISMAILIA, Egypt (CP) Canadian troops, now station- ed near Cairo, will .move shortly to this war-battered town of Ismailia to service front-line United Nations peacekeeping forces. Even- tually they may make another move. Lt.-Gen. Ensio Siilasvou, Finnish commander of the UN Emergency Force, said that while it is too early to specu- late, there is the possibility of an negotiated agreement to shift the UN buffer zone east- ward across the Sinai desert, perhaps to a line running south from the Mediterranean seaport of El Arish. If so, it would be logical for the Canadians and the Poles who also provide logistics to break camp again and move up to El Arish, the better to provide support for the UN men, he added in an inter- view. Ismailia itself still bears traces of the palmy days of British colonial grandeur but as a place to live it is almost a total mess. Doggedly, the Canadians and the Poles, with whom they now share the tent city of Camp Shams outside Cairo, are struggling to make the place fit to live before the scheduled move is staged dur- ing the period July 5 to mid- August. Under the direction of a young engineer, Capt. Doug MacQuarrie of Regina, an ad- vance party is shovelling out the rubble and filth accumu- lated in the years since the Is- raelis wrecked the town in .the 1967 tax-day war. Until the more recent war, the Israelis had a military stronghold just across the canal and the town was out-of- bounds to Egyptian civilians. Now civilians are drifting in on a selective basis, the Egyp- tains holding control of the Sinai Desert up to the UN buffer zone about 30 miles inland from the canal. Tourists by the busloads go daily across the canal to view with delight the wreckage of Kennedy: it's up to public BOSTON (AP) Senator Edward Kennedy says the public will decide whether the Chappaquiddick incident will have any effect on his political future. "Those are questions that would have to be decided by the people themselves, and as long as I remain in elective of- fice they will have that oppor- tunity to express whatever view they have on he said. the old Israeli base. With Egyptians from over- crowded Cairo and elsewhere frantic for permission to move in. the town gradually is coming alive with street market stalls, cafes and small businesses springing up over- night. Much of the town with its once-charming old villages and flowering trees and shrubs remains largely aban- doned. The camp itself, built by Britain in the 1930s and taken over in 1957 when the Egyp- tians ordered the British out, was hardest hit in the 1967 war. The Canadians thus have inherited a collection of pock- marked, windowless buildings, many with caved-in roofs and sagging walls and crammed with litter and gar- bage. Sanitation is a major prob- lem, says MacQuarrie, emphasizing that the whole place has to be scrubbed down and disinfected. Tent canvas will be used to cover some bombed in roofs. When work at this camp 85 miles northeast of Cairo is completed, the men will have flush toilets and running water. Unlike Camp Shams, there are trees here and tennis courts. DEAL PLANNED Brig.-Gen. Don Holmes of Ottawa, Canadian camp commander at Shams, says he hopes to work a deal with the Egyptians who run the air base, exchanging use of the tennis courts for use of their swimming pool. Also, he says, there are swimming facilities at a point on the canal and at nearby Lake Timsah which have been cleared of land mines. For a start, although lower ranks will have inside accommodation, some officers will remain under canvas until prefabricated housing units arrive from Canada. The only thing marring general enthusiasm for the move is the fear that Ismailia may also prove to be just a temporary site. But Maj. David Williamson, an English born engineer in over-all charge of the move and brimming with enthusiasm, considers temporary a dirty word. "I at it as if we are going to be here forever." he said. "That's my personal philosophy. Unless we take that approach. I think we would be defeating ourselves." That, he believes is what happened at Camp Shams, erected last November on an emergency and temporary basis. "No one wanted, to do anything with the place because we felt we'd be moving out." Williamson, now of Ottawa, is a native of Newcastle. England, who joined the RCAF in 1962 and has served from Barrington. N.S.. to British Columbia. But this is the best tour vet. he says.

Gasoline fees may be revised OTTAWA (CP) A National Energy Board spokesman said Tuesday the board is considering revising export charges for gasoline to make export prices more responsive to market con- ditions. A review of the charges was begun after refiners from the Prairie provinces complained that they could not compete in the United States market be- cause of a high, fixed-rate ex- port charge. A S14-a-barrel export charge for crude oil was extended in May to refined products. There are 35 gallons in a barrel. The have petitioned the board for contend that the ex- port charge pushes the wholesale price of Canadian gasoline to a level substantial- ly above current market prices in the U.S. Prairie refiners have been exporting about 1.5 million barrels of gasoline a year to the U.S. as their capacity is greater than consumption in the region. The spokesman said a report from the refiners in- dicates the rate of exports has fallen off sharply. Demand in the U.S. rises during the summer and ex- ports usually rise during those months. The spokesman said the board is studying the possibili- ty of setting up a scale of ex- port charges for gasoline which would vary product prices with market areas. Any changes proposed by the board must be approved by cabinet and response might be delayed until after the July 8 general election. Poisoned tea served Soviet ballet star TEL AVIV iReuter) Soviet ballet star Valery Panov said today he was served poisoned tea and regularly threatened by Soviet security agents before being allowed to emigrate to Israel with his wife last week. The 35-year-old dancer and his ballerina wife. Galina. told a news conference here that the harassment increased 2'r months ago. Panov said it reached the point that when he exercised by jogging through a forest he was trailed by panting security men. Three weeks ago he and his brother were served poisoned tea on a train journey, he said. About five minutes after drinking the lea. they lost their sight, became sick, then fell into semi-consciousness. he said. They were taken off the train and spent eight days recovering in a hospital. "I have no doubt that this was poisoning by chemical or pharmaceutical means." he said. QUESTIONED OFTEN Panov said he was regularly railed to police headquarters and. after visits by foreigners, agents would pound on his door for up to an hour. The bearded Jewish dancer also told reporters he is sure the harassment was partly responsible for his wife's recent miscarriage. The Panovs. who battled for two years Jo pain exit permits, said that without the publicity surrounding their rase they would not hav7e been allowed to leave the Soviet Union NIXON MAD AT MARTHA FOR BEING ON HIS BED NEW YORK (APi Martha Mitchell said Tuesday her 1 ru- bles with President Nixon dale back to the nigh! he walked into his room at Camp David.
