Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBR1DGE HERA1D Monday. Juno 29, 1970 'end In B.C. Renewed GRAND FORKS, B.C. (CP) The home of orthodox Doukhobor leader John J. Veri- gin was burned to the ground early Sunday and six nude women arrested at the scene. Police said they suspect arson and that the fire was probably a renewal of a decades-old leader- ship feud between Mr. Verigin's Union of Spirit- ual Communities of Christ, bet- ter known as Orthodox Doukho- bors, and Stefan Sorokin's Sons of Freedom group. An RCMP officer here said Grain Handlers Accept Wage Hike VANCOUVER (CP) About 500 Vancouver grain handlers voted Sunday 90 per cent in fa- vor of accepting a new two- year contract worked out by a conciliation board last week. The agreement, retroactive to last December, provides for a 20 per cent wage increase in two years for members of the Cereal Workers' Union. Workers will get an hourly increase of 70 cents on a base rate of plus improved overtime and fringe benefits. The union had asked for an in- Hiker Mauled By Bear YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK (AP) An Oregon man who tangled with an angry .mother bear near Old Faithful lodge Saturday morning was reported in good condition in a park hospital Sunday. James L. F r e e m a n, 24, Grants Pass, Ore., was badly mauled in the first injury from a park bear reported this sea- son. A hospital spokesman said Sunday most of the wounds were superficial and Free- man's condition was "generally very good." The spokesman said the most serious injury was a deep wound which went nearly half- way through Freeman's leg. Freeman and his brother, John, 14, were hiking about three miles south of Old Faith- ful when the bear came out of the woods. Park officials said the hikers apparently startled the bear and she charged them. The bear reportedly had a cub. Freeman told park officials he shouted to distract the bear and the bear attacked them. The younger Freeman started running and became lost. He was found unharmed about three hours later. Neither of the brothers could tell whether the animal was a grizzly or a black bear. Dnmikeller Girl Chosen AlJjerta Indian Princess CALGARY (CP) Laverna McMaster of Drumheller, has been chosen from among 16 girls as Alberta's Indian prin- cess. Rosle Gladstone of Cardston was second and Alice Cardinal of Edmonton third. Miss McMaster, who suc- ceeds E m e 1 i a Crowfoot of Gleichen, will compete later this summer in the national In- dian princess final in Yellow- knife, N.W.T. At that time, Prince Charles will crown the winner. crease of 95 cents an hour in a one-year contract at the start of negotiations. Companies involved are the Alberta Wheat Pool, Burrard Terminals, Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, Pacific Elevators and United Grain Growers. Pat O'Neal, the union repre- sentative on the three-man con- ciliation board, said the settle- ment is fair and reasonable considering the grain indus- try's "on-rent economic situa- tion." Meanwhile, Al Morgan, sec- retary of Local 28 of the Hotel and Restaurant Workers Union, said Sunday his union is pre- pared for a lengthy strike against more than 20 Vancou- ver hotels. He said he is determined to get a fair settlement for the union because "hotel profits are rising all the time." Ray Haynes, secretary of the British Columbia Federation of Labor, pledged the federation's support of the hotel workers in fighting an injunction applica- tion to halt distribution of leaf- lets and advertisements in newspapers stating the union's case. The hotel and restaurant workers and the beverage dis- pensers have been on strike or locked out for more than two weeks. They are asking an in- crease of an hour in a one- year contract. Operators of two Vancouver Island pulp mills were served with 72-hour strike notice Sat- urday by the pulp and paper workers of Canada union. Crofton Pulp and Paper Ltd., employing about 600 men, and MacMillan Bloedel's Harmac operation, employing about 000 men, are the two mills in- volved. Frank Jameson, president of the Crofton Local, said union members would probably strike when the present con- tract expires Tuesday. Fred Mullin, national presi- dent of the union, said Sunday seven of the union's eight Brit- ish Columbia locals have voted in favor of a strike. Dr. Stewart Takes Post In Nigeria EDMONTON (CP) Dr. An- drew Stewart, 66, former chair- man of the Board of Broadcas_t Governors and former presi- dent of the University of Al- berta, said today he is leaving this fall to take a post at the University of Ibadan in Niger- ia. Dr. Stewart said his post in Nigeria will involve some .caching and research in the general field of education fi- nance. He said his tenure is for two years and is being arranged through the Canadian Interna- tional Development Agency in Ottawa. I fear is growing among Orthodox Doukhobors in the Brilliant and Grand Forks areas. Police found a beer bottle half full of volatile liquid and gaso- line-soaked rags near the scene of the fire. Five of the women arrested are from the Krestova area and one is from Grand Forks. Interviewed in Brilliant, 45 miles northeast of Grand Forks. Mrs. Verigin said her husband was unavailable because he was busy searching for a new home. ''It has been a veiy bard day for she said. "We came to Brilliant Saturday night with all our family to attend the cere- mony (the 75th anniversary of the burning of arms by Doukho- bors in the Ukraine in OLD TROUBLE BACK "We, of course, left a guard at home but he couldn't stop it. We are very upset. These are the old problems again." Mr. Sorokin, in Krestova. 125 miles northeast of here, agreed that t'ra's seemed to be a repeat of violence of the 1980s and 1960s but said neither he nor his sect had anything to do with it. "I have tried to stop the people from doing this. I didn't even go to Brilliant for the cele- bration. We stayed home. "There were rumors of trou- ble he said through a Russian interpreter. "We stayed home." Mr. Sorokin said he believes that the persons responsible are those who were involved in burnings and nude demonstra- tions in the 1960s. Provincial Judge Willtanf Evans of Nelson, Doukhobor confidante, said: "It's too bad it's starting all over again. We've had seven years of peace. It's really too bad. We could be in for prob- lems. I think some of those women are insane. Sorokin will be very disappointed." British Columbia's Kootenay region was hit by outbreaks of arson and nude demonstrations on numerous occasions in the early 1960s but the outbreaks died away around 1961 when about 100 members of the Free- domite sect were sent to prison for terms ranging up to 12 years on charges of arson and bomb- ing. Mr. Verigin's trouble with' the Freedomites started in 1953 when they burned nine homes in tliree communities on his wed- ding day. At that time they said they did not recognize his lead- ership and set the fires to take the spotlight away from the wedding. In 1961, Freedomite women disrobed on stage during an or- thodox Christmas season party hi Grand Forks. They were es- corted out of the hall by police and released. In 1962, 13 nude hymn-singing Freedomite women set fire to Mr. Verigin's home burned Sunday was on the same all of them, from Krestova, were arrested and charged with arson. In 1962, several months after that fire, about 900 Freedomites went to Verigin's home and the two sects had a five-hour face- to-face confrontation which had to be broken up by the police.

No injuries were reported. Park spokesman Vern Hen- nesay said that at times, every road in the park was closed by falling trees. Thank you Canada!

Traditioncd Protest Liberal Reforms In Church VATICAN CITY (AP) A thousand traditionalist Roman Catholics marched through Rome and sang Latin hymns in St. Peter's Basilica Sunday, then settled down for an all- night vigil under Pope Paul's window to pray for the repeal of liberal reforms in the churoh. It was the biggest demonstra- tion here yet by Catholics un- happy with the updating that began in the church with the 1962-65 Vatican Council. Legislature Holds Session o To Broaden Labor Laws REGINA (CP) The legisla- ture began an emergency ses- sion today to deal with govern- ment proposals to broaden a controversial 19C6 labor law and bring striking construction workers under compulsory arbi- tration. Lt.-Gov.

Atout 100 pickets, carrying signs saying, "we're rolling in wheat but have no dough" and, Another black day in Saskat- marched outside the legislature as the session began. Striking plumbers were among the pickets. Many of the pickets later en- tered the legislatures public galleries to watch the proceed- ings. The Essential Services Emer- gency Act, commonly called bill 2, was passed four years ago to order striking members of the Oil, Chemical and Atomic Work- ers Union back to work at the Saskatchewan Power Corp. Premier Ross Thatcher's Lib- eral government, with 34 seats in the 59-seat legislature, naw proposes to broaden the terms of the act to bring construction workers under compulsory arbi- tation. Crowd Only Watches Plight As Pair Cling To Boat WOODSTOCK, Ont. (CP) Two brothers told today of spending four frightening hours clinging to their over- turned boat trying to get help from a crowd that watched their plight from the shore- line. Dave Front and his brother, Jim, were fishing Saturday in Pittock Dam, four miles north of when their flat-bot- tomed boat overturned. "We got fed up seeing the peopla on the shore just watching us thr'ough their bin- oculars and waving at us while we were screaming for Dave said in an inter- view today. A boat went by, Dave said, but "the guy just smiled and waved at us. We never saw him again.'' After nearly four hours someone called the fire de- partment.

"If it hadn't been for my brother, who just kept holding on to me, I would be very dead said Dave. "It sure makes you wonder about people." The men were released after treatment at hospital for exposure, shock and severe cramps. U.S. Aircraft Losses High WASHINGTON (Reuters) The United States has lost more than aircraft in Vietnam, an average of more than a year or tliree a day, says def- ence department testimony made public today. Figures given a congressional subcommittee showed that as of last, March, losses of U.S. air- craft since bombings began in North Vietnam six years ago to- talled craft, worth an esti- mated I Almost all of the demonstra- tors were from West Germany, Prance, Switzerland and the Eu- ropean low the same areas which produced the prelates that gave the Vati- can Council its liberal thrust. There were a few Mexicans, Spaniards and Italians in the procession. Singing the Latin hymn Gloria to the the traditionalists marched through the bronze doorway of St. Peter's Basilica early Sun- day evening to bring their pro- test for the first time into Chris- tendom's largest church. Vatican gendarmes made no effort to stop the orderly line of marchers, led by nine priests. Basilica police took away half a dozen flags and pennants that had been earned in the front of the procession as it crossed St. Peter's Square virtually under Pope Paul's windows. More than tourists were in the basilica and the square when the protesting Catholics came on the scene. The march- ers seemed to arouse little cu- riosity. The basilica's archpriest, Paolo Cardinal Marella, was conducting special vesper serv- ices on the eve of St. Peter's feast day but the service was not interrupted. The conservatives crossed to a chapel containing the remains of Pope Pius X. the early 20th- century pontiff who enacted the traditional Catholic catechism. The conservatives vowed to use only this catechism for their children, not new versions writ- ten in recent years. Organizers of the conserva- tive group said some of the marchers would stay in St. Pe- ter's Square all night, praying that the Pope repeal the new lit- urgy for the mass and other modernizing reforms he has en- acted. Earlier In the day, several thousand traditionalists joined in an old-style Latin mass in Rome's ancient Colosseum in protest against modernization of the liturgy. That was the start of the big- gest demonstration here so far for an end to liberal reforms and a return to traditional rites. The demonstrations are ex- pected to conclude today. The Pope made no mention of the conservative protest during his usual Sunday mid-day bless- ing of the crowd in St. Peter's S'quare. He has refused to re- ceive n delegation of the pro- testing traditionalists, as he refused to receive protesting lib- erals here last October.
