Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 27, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta ___Saturday, Juno 27, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 Spokesman. Warns Officials Radical Group Plans To Crash Rock Festival TORONTO (CP) The May Fourth Movement, a rad- ical group of young people whose slated aim is "power to the warned Friday that possibly as many as persons may attempt to crash this weekend's rock festival at the Canadian National Exhibi- tion grandstand. Victor Klassen, a spokes- man for the group, told a news conference that young people from California and "four busloads" from Montreal had already arrived expecting to attend a free fes- tival. The festival, consisting of two 12-hour concerts today and Sunday, is sponsored jointly by Eaton-Walker Asso- ciates Ltd. of Toronto and Ma- clean-Hunter Ltd. Tickets for the two days cost at the gate and a single day's admis- sion is Advance tickets sold for and Police said 200 off-duty po- licemen hired by the sponsors and 100 on-duty police would be used from 4 p.m. Friday to 8 a.m. Monday. Police at the festival site said "75 to 100" .persons, mostly Americans, hod ar- rived Thursday night and were camped in a park near the CNE grounds. A police spokesman said that while most didn't have tickets they seemed to be there intending to buy them when the gates open. The May Fourth spokesmen said many people coming from the United States be- lieved this was the "peace festival" announced by Bcalle John Lennon in Toronto last December. That festival, which Lennon later backed out of after its promoters announced there would be a admission for three days of concerts, was called off this week after pro- moters had difficulty obtain- ing a site in time for the an- nounced August dates. Tlu's w e e k e n d 's festival, called Festival Express 1370, was to have opened in Mont- real Wednesday but was can- celled by civic officials there fearful of St. Jean Baptiste Day disruptions. By Wednesday night about 50 persons, most of them from Quebec, were camped out in a park behind the Ontario Leg- islature. They said they were going to sec the festival for free. One of the group said he was returning to Montreal and bringing guys" back with him. The May Fourth spokesmen said they "do not advocate violence except in self-def- but that they were get- ting through the festival gates "any way we can." "If we don't get in here, we'll go to Winnipeg and get in there. If we don't get in at Winnipeg, we'll go to Calgary and get in there." The festival, billed as the first transcontinental pop fes- tival, visits Winnipeg July 1 and Calgary July 4-5. One May Fourth spokesman said that when "the people with single day tickets" see them get in free today, liicy will join them Sunday and others will force the festival organizers to refund their money. A precedent for the refund- ing of money to ticket holders after gate-crashers got in for free was set at last year's Woodstock, N.Y., rock festi- val, where concerts were held in a fence-enclosed field. Con- ceils here are within a 30-foot concrete enclosure. The Festival Express organ- izers have refused to disclose the number of advance sales. The CNE grandstand holds persons for football games.

Pearson warns that the United Nations "will dim- inish and ultimately disappear" unless its members show a stronger sense of international commitment and responsibility. In an article in the weekly magazine Saturday Review on LESTER PEARSON UN Warning the UN's 25th anniversary, the former Canadian prime minis- ter says: "From the beginning the big powers have used the UN pri- marily for national purposes, good and bad. Now medium- sized and smaller nations, which hpve most to gain from a universal institution and have been the UN's strongest sup- porters, are becoming more skeptical and at times use the organization for the irresponsi- ble promotion of their own na- tional ends." He said experience proves that any international organiza- tion eventually will become po- litically helpless if it is merely a platform to promote national policy. Anton Vasek, Czechoslova- kia's ambassador to Denmark, has asked for political asylum in Denmark after getting or- ders from the Czechoslovak for- eign ministry to return home, police said in Copenhagen.

He came here in De- cember. V a s e k' s whereabouts are being kept secret by police and foreign ministry officials.

Katharine mother of Health Minister John Munro, was remaned to July 7 in Ham- ilton on charges of failing to comply with three orders under the Fire Prevention Act. A fire last week in a boarding house owned by Mrs. Munro left seven people home- less.

V After having job applications turned down by 35 Canadian colleges and universities, a May graduate of Simon Fraser University is working tem- porarily for the federal man- power department. Martin Loncy, 26, describes himself as a socialist. Once president of the radical Cana- dian Union of Students, he graduated from the British Columbia university this spring with a master's degree in poli- tical science. His thesis, on Cuban social history, was judged outstand- ing by an examiner. He earned an honors degree in political science and eco- nomics from England's Dur- ham University in 19G6. Mi'. Loney started searching for a teaching job in political science last January. In an in- terview he said he is "abso- lutely certain" that his politi- cal views have prejudiced his chances of teaching. "I guess people know who I am."

A Canadian B'orces spokes- man today said the attempt at an unofficial record will be made in two CF-5 jet aircraft stationed at Canadian Forces Base Cold Lake, in northeast- ern Alberta.

They will make six-minute refueling stops at Val d'Or, Que., and at Cal- gary. The flights are to commem- orate the 50th anniversary of the first cross-Canada mail flight. That flight, in 1920, re- quired six aircraft in relays and took a total of days. To- tal flying time was 49 hours i and seven minutes.

Commons 25th Annivers Of UN Founding OTTAWA (CP) The Com mons Friday marked the 25th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations and Prime Minister Trudeau pledged Can- ada's continuing support for the organization "as the best hope we have that the grave chal- lenges facing Canada and the world can be met." Canada, said the prime minis- ter, has consistently sought to strengthen the UN institutions m the interest of peace and the quality of life. The UN couid not be expected to be greater than the political will of Ks members, he said. "Although incorporated to at- tain the ends desired by all peo- ples, including Canadians, the UN can employ only the means agreed upon by the member governments." Opposition Leader Robert Slanfield said he hoped the gov- ernment's determination to play a constructive r'ole in the UN is greater than that indicated in the foreign policy wliite paper tabled Thursday, Mr. Stanfield said there have been many warnings that the UN is in need of rejuvenation and reform. This wouldn't be easy, but Canada should do ev- erything it could to bring it about. Stanley Knowles nipeg North Centre) said that i( the UN is to maintain peace in tire years ahead it must become a body of world authority. And its future depends on nations such as Canada giving it full support. Crcditiste Leader Real Caouette said the UN has failed in many areas and people had a right to ask whether the organi- zation had fulfilled its objec- tives. He said it is impossible to achieve peace without justice and order. Make a smart move teasing issmarlbusiness.freEScapital, saves money, provides late-model de- pendable transportation.
