LETHBRIDGE, ALBEKTA, SATURDAY, JUNE Two Killed In Rioting 1 aiim 15 Cents FOUR SECTIONS 62 PAGES Gandhi Shuffles Cabinet From AP-Renlers BELFAST (CP) Two men vere shot anJ tailed todij as rioting erupted in the streets of this Northern Ireland city. Fires broke out in the city and troops used tear gas against stone- throwing mobs. A spokesman for Royal Victo- ria Hospital said two men were killed by gunfire and four other patients were treated for bullet wounds. Nearly 100 civilians, troops and police were treated for riot injuries, the spokesman added. The clashes, primarily be- tween Roman Catholics and Protestants, followed the jailing Friday of Beinadette Devlin, a Catholic minority spokesman in Northern Ireland who is a mem- ber of Britain's Parliament. Fighting raged around a pro- cession of some 10.000 Protes- tants o a r a d i n g through the heart of Belfast. loses Parliament Adjourns For Summer By BOB DOUGLAS OTTAWA and Commons members have begun a three-month recess after 152 sitting days in the second session of the 28th Parliament. Both chambers adjourned Friday after passage of a few bills and a ceremony in the Senate chamber in which Chief Justice Gerald Fauteux, acting as dep- uty to Governor-General Roland Michener; gave royal assent to 25 bills. As well the Commons held a debate of nearly three hours Friday on the postal situation after pass- ing amendments to the Fisheries Act to beef up anli- poUuUon law. They were later passed by the Senate and given royal assent. The Senate also passed a Commons bill revamp- ing the Canada Elections Act that lowers to 18 from 21 the minimum voting age in federal elections. It was assented to. The Commons passed a bill setting up a standards council of Canada. The Senate gave it fust reading. Authority Fragmented Delivering a parting shot In Common's debate on the Fisheries Act amendments, Lloyd Grouse South Shore) said Resources Minister J. J. Greene "fragmented" authority for pollution control by intro- ducing the Canada Water Act, also assented to Friday. The Fisheries Act had "everything going for it to control pollution." The fisheries department would have had the HUB authority to control water pollution in Canada. But the resources minister had convinced the gov- ernment to accept his "polluted abortion of an act" The Canada Water Act, given assent Friday, split authority among federal and provincial governments end various government agencies. It would now be difficult to enforce pollution con- trol measures. Mr. Crouse also rapped Fisheries Minister Jack Davis for assuming "dictatorial powers" under the amendments to the Fisheries Act. _ He could freeze and control fishing hi various parts of the country until there was only a handful of fish- ermen left. Mr. Davis said anti-pollution measures under tne Fisheries Act will apply to all areas and be tough. The amendments would allow the fisheries depart- ment to deal more quickly and effectively with pollu- tion. Guarantees Standards "I will guarantee that any standards under the Fisheries Act will not stand down to any other leg- or provincial." Earlier, Louis Cmneau (PC-South Western Nova) suggested removing a provision in the amendments that would allow the fisheries minister to permit off- shore lobster-fishing year by year. He said the government decided to allow offshore lobstering because Russian and American fishermen were fishing off Canadian shores. But offshore lobster fishing would hurl inshore fishing. Mr. Comeau suggested Mr. Davis should be meet- Ing with the fishermen before allowing offshore lobster- bis Mr. Davis said he has no intention of upsetting the inshore lobster fishery in the Atlantic provinces. The department did not intend to permit an offshore lobster fishery there. In debate on the standards council bill, Doug Row- land (NDP-Selkirk) suggested that Ihe council should make recommendations on what standards it considers should be made compulsory. Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pepin said the purpose of the bill is to set up a council that would recommend voluntary standards. .''peaking en a Senate bill amending the Canada Shipping Act, Michael Forestall (PC-Dartmouth-Hah- fax East) said the transport department faces a con- flict of Merest" ns it investigates shipping accident.'; and sets flipping regulations at l.lw same lime. lln suggested the government should set up an in- dependent agency to investigate accidents. Billion Dollar Alaska CALGARY (CP) The Al- berta Gas Trunk Line Co. Ltd. proposed today to build a pipeline connect- ing Alaskan supplies of natural gas to southern markets. The line would take gas from Prudhoe Bay on Alas- ka's north slope, pass through the Yukon and Northwest Terri- tories and connect to the com- pany's system in Alberta. Alberta Gas Trunk is a com- mon carrier in the province, but connects at provincial bounda- ries with distributors serving parts the United States and Canada. The firm expects to apply later this year to the National Energy Board in Ottawa and the Federal Power Commission in the United States for permis- sion to build the 43-inch diam- eter line. The system could begin opera- tion hi 1974 with an initial daily capacity of cubic feet, increasing to cubic feet by 1980. Alberta Gas Trunk said in a written announcement the lino Detective Killed By Peeping Tom WINNIPEG (CP) A Winni- peg city detective with a "ter- rific career ahead of him" was killed and his partner seriously wounded today by a suspected peeping torn in central Winni- Police said Det. Ronald Ed- ward Houston, 35, of suburban Transcona, was shot and stabbed and Det. John DeGroot, 28, was stabbed in the chest. DeGroot is in fair condition in hospital. The two men were part of a four-man stakeout in the resi- dential area of Fort Rouge on the south side of the Assiniboine River. Numerous complaints had been received from the area about a person looking in win- dows and a description had been c i r c u 1 a t e d of a man wanted in connection with a ser- ies of indecent assaults. o Houston, father of two young sons, and DeGroot apparently were in the process of appre- hending a. suspect seen peeking in an apartment window at about 2 a.m. Both were equipped with wal- kie-talkies but did not have time to call for assistance from the other two policemen in the stak- out who were parked to a near- by car. A citj'-wide manhunt was or- ganized and roadblocks were set up by rifle-and shotgun-armed policemen. A police boat also was searching the banks along the Assiniboine Eiver near the scene of the killing. The suspect, believed to he 30 to 35 years of age and about 200 pounds, matched the description of the suspect in the indecent assault incidents. would be constructed in three sections by three companies with Canadian investors holding the equity of the Canadian por- tions. The Alberta section would be a 350-mile line built within the next two years at a cost of The company plans to spend another during tlie period expanding its existing facilities. A federally-incorporated com- pany with a charter to operate a pipeline system would con- struct the 900-mile section through the Yukon and North- west Territories in 1973 and 1974 at a cost of Alberta Gas Trunk has ar- ranged to purchase such a com- pany and said it would offer shares in the firm to Canadian investors. TO FORM CORPORATION An Alaskan corporation, which is yet to be formed, would build the remaining 300- mile section in 1973 and 1974 at a cost of Alberta Gas Trunk is the first company to announce plans for a line to near the Arctic Coast. The natural gas it would carry would be produced in conjunc- tion with crude oil which is ex- pected to begin reaching mar- kets from northern Alaska in 1974. Northern Natural Gas Co. Ltd. of Omaha proposed last year to build a pipeline into the Northwest Territories and has applied for permission to build the first stage from Nebraska to southeastern Alberta. The sec- ond stage would come as gas fields were developed in the Territories. Trans-Canada Pipelines Ltd. says it has been studying the feasibility of a northern line, but has not applied to build. Intransigence May Hurt Workers Warns Postal Union OTTAWA (CP) The postal dispute stayed in the hands of the negotiators Friday despite a special three-hour debate in the House of Commons in which government and opposition speakers hashed through the is- sues on their way to a three- month recess. Postmaster-General Eric K i e i' a n s, answering charges that the government has been stubborn, insensitive and incon- siderate in dealing with its em- ployees, warned that union in- transigence could hurt the workers involved in the dispute. Loss of public confidence in the post office as a result of the rotating postal strikes could Seen and Heard ABOUT TOWN T ITTI.E girl getting oft a tongue twisting cutic as siic took a telephone call from ".loan WaterTicId at the Bowman Arts Centre'' and announced Io her mom it was "Otlerfeel from the blooming ancestor" Charlotte Gaffncy spending futile hours worrying about why her car wouldn't go, not, willing to believe Ihc gas guage which regisl c r e d empty June bride Mar- garet Siirmik ready to kick off her shoes in Ihe mara- Ihon bride'.-, dance at her wedding reception, ns s h c waltzed without stopping tor most of an hour, mean layoffs and a decline in union membership, he said. Mail volume had slipped to the 1966 rate of items a year rather" than increasing to as planned. Mr. Kierans coupled tha threat with a plea to the work- ers to join him in a drive to win back public confidence and drive private competitors out of business. Referring to the issue of job security which has still to be resolved, he said he had "probably the least security of all" if the post office slloultl fail. The minister denied opposi- tion suggestions that the govern- ment has been following a pol- icy of "brinkmanship" in deal- ing with the Council of Postal Unions in the last 10 months. "Nobody in the government wants to provoke a he said. The point had been raised earlier by Conservative postal critic Heath Macquarrie (Hills- borough) who said intemperate language used by government spokesman-were only aggravat- ing the conflict. Macquarrie said that al- though he sympathized with ibc postal unions he felt they should be careful "not to exhaust the goodwill" they enjoy in public opinion. Treasury Board President C M. Dniry, the minister re- sponsible for contract talks "nth government employees, cast himself as a calm spokesman for logic in the debate and intro- duced a scries of figures to jus- tify the contention thai. Ilic offer .made to Ihc unions has been "fair and reasonable." Total weekly pay. including overtime and shift premiums, is for the average postman, he said, compared to for industrial workers. The govern- ment's wage offer would bring the weekly pay to immedi- ately, he said. At one Intersection shots blazed out and British troops fired riot gas to break up the fighting. Protestants, Catholics and British troops had battled in the streets of three Northern Ire- land cities Friday night. The violence began after Miss Devlin, 23, a champion of the Catholic minority and Ihe youngest member of the British House of Commons, lost her last appeal and began a six-month sentence on charges of helping to incite Catholic-Protestant riots in Northern Ireland last year. More than Protestants and Catholics were involved in Friday night's disturbances in Londonderry, Armagh, and Bel- fast, the capital of predomi- nantly Protestant Northern Ire- land. The rioting in Londonderry lasted live hours. Fourteen per- sons were arrested and 22 sol- diers were injured, three requir- ing hospital treatment. Eight soldiers were injured in Belfast, four seriously. Two men were injured in two hours of disturbances in Armagh, where Miss Devlin went to begin her sentence in the women's jail. RIVAL GROUPS MEET The trouble in Belfast beg_an when a Protestant procession ran into a rival march of Catho- lics protesting Miss Devlin's ar- rest. British troops firing tear gas separated the Protestant and Catholic crowds. Police in Londonderry also fired tear gas grenades. In London, about 70 Irish men and women marched to the home office to protest Miss Dev- lin's jail sentence. Police made six arrests. Miss Devlin, leader of the Catholic minority in predomi- nantly Protestant Londonderry, was scheduled to address residents of the city's Bogside district before being taken to jail. But police intercepted her car and took her directly to Ar- magh. When she reached the heav- ily-guarded jail, demonstrators outside shouted: "God bless you, Bernadette; you are a saint." She rolled down a window of the car and replied: "Thank you for turning up, but please don't cause any trouble." A British Army spokesman said that although police had granted Miss Devlin permission to make the Bogside speech and then surrender, she was ar- rested out of fear she would de- liver a talk that would spark rioting. Miss Devlin's sentence does not mean she loses her right to vote in Parliament. With time off for good behavior, she could be freed by October.

NEW DELHI CAP) Minister Indira Gandhi, with an eve toward elections scheduled in 1972, moved to strengthen her hand today with a major cabi- net shakeup that involved all the senior portfolios. The kcv moves Included the transfer of Home Minister Y. B. Chavan to finance, tearing Mrs. Gandhi herself with the critical home ministry portfolio; the promotion of Congress party President Jagivan Rare from food minister to defence minis- ter: and tire shift of Swaran Singh from defence to foreign affairs. The way for the cabinet changes was cleared when For- eign Minister Dinesh Singh ac- cepted a demotion to industrial development minister Friday. The night before, he had an- nounced his resignation from tlv> cabinet with a declaration that he would not accept such a shift. The shuffle was announced after two days of bargaining and manoeuvring that saw the fortunes of Singh and several others change several times. It was the first cabinet shakeup since February, 1969.

Fierce Battle Fouglit In Middle From AP-Keuters Israeli forces invaded Syria's Golan Heights Friday and fought Syrian troops in an all- day battle winch a spokesman for the Damascus government called "the heaviest, longest and fiercest" since the 1967 Middle East war. Syria said 45 of its soldiers were killed and 75 wounded. The military command in Tel Aviv said io Israeli troops were killed and 27 wounded. Israel launched the attack be- cause Syria was "on the verge'1 of staging a border war of attri- tion, an Israeli officer told a news conference. The officer said the raid was intended to persuade the Syrians "to think again, instead of gliding into such a war." The officer warned of possible new and heavier strikes to pre- vent what he called attempts by the Syrians to escalate hostili- ties along the ceasefire lines in the Golan Heights.
