Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Tuesday, March 2, 1971 Snatched for second time CARACAS (Renter) - The 13-year-old son of a Venezuelan muM-millionaire was kidnapped today, for the second time in just over a year, and the kidnappers demanded $900,000 for his safe return. Leon Taurel, son of Leon Ja-cobo Taurel, one of the richest men in Venezuela, was reported forced into a car by a gang of ermed men while on his way to school. Fourteen months ago, guerrilla kidnappers snatched, the boy from a chauffeur-driven limousine and demanded $110,400. He was freed in a city park three hours later after his father, a chain store tycoon, handed over the money personally. Monday's snatch came while negotiations continued for the freedom of banker-doctor Enrique Dao, kidnapped in his oar 19 days ago. The new wave of kidnappings has started speculation that the almost extinct guerrilla forces which once harassed the country are regrouping and seeking to obtain funds by a series of kidnappings of rich citizens. Oil revenue talks under way TRIPOLI (AP) - Western oil companies and the Libyan government began low-level talks today on Libyan demands for sharply increased oil revenues. As the talks started a spokesman for the companies reported that Libya and the firms had resolved one major hurdle-the government's original demand that it negotiate with each com- pany individually. The companies insisted on talking in a bloc. The spokesman did not explain, however, in what way the problem had been settled. British Petroleum and Gelsen-berg of West Germany were reported to be the first companies to come before the government in today's talks. Pour solvent on oil slick CAPE TOWN (Reuter) -Ships and helicopters poured solvent today on an oil slick more than five miles long spread by the stricken tanker Wafra, trapped on a sandbank off the tip of South. Africa. Officials are afraid the 28,339-ton Liberian-flag ship, which so far has only spilled oil from its fuel bunkers, may break up and spew its cargo of 40,C00 tons of crude oil into the ocean and on to magnificent beaches nearby. Police move in bulldozers L'AQUTLA, Italy (Reuter) police moved in bulldozers today to smash street barricades thrown up across this medieval city in two days of rioting and destruction. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Bldg. 328-4095 But after a three-hour running battle Sunday night, demonstrators seemed determined to carry on their violent protest against the decision to split the functions of regional capital between L'Aquila and the rival-and richer-town of Pescara. Police are anxious to end the violence before it reaches the proportions of the civil revolt over similar grievances in the south Italian city of Reggio Calabria.

Government misses boat says Notley CALGARY (CP) - The Social Credit government is "missing the boat" with its new provincial budget, Grant Notley, leader of the New Democratic Party said Monday. "The budget is a business-as-usual document when the times demand bold and imaginative government leadership." The government's only response to rising unemployment, he told a news conference, was to increase welfare payments. "At a time when capital expenditures should be increased to provide jobs', the government's capital budget has shrunk by nearly $30 million." The government made only a token start on its rural - incentives program with a "meagre" $3 million. That was "just enough to diffuse rural opposition to growing centralization in Calgary and Edmonton." Mr. Notley contended the failure to increase grants to municipalities was a method of passing the unpleasant task of tax increases to the municipalities. He said he had no objection to deficit budgets, which the province has produced for the second consecutive year. "But what concerns me is that these deficits do not ap-pear to be planned. They're accidental deficits not tied to anything in particular." Mr. Notley also predicted the government would call an election sometime in the spring and after the balloting was complete the NDP would hold the balance of power. The party had 32 candidates nominated across the province and at least 50 others would be trying to represent the party in the remaining 43 constituencies by April. The government was "lurching from crisis to crisis" and would find itself more and more on the defensive if it waited until after spring to call an election. the problem solver Ull!!! 9,000,000 copies published use yours! 9 Tl SH stf9nr � ^national revenue. taxation �"revenu national. impot ^ a complete step-by-step guide to tax form filing... and many other tips for all except those: (a) receiving rents, commissions or provisional tees, (b) with investment Income over $2,500, (c) In business as proprietors or partners, Including farmers or fishermen, (a) claiming foreign lax credits or capital cost allowance, or (e) making additional Canada Pension Plan contributions as described in item 27 of this Guld* (Indlvlduah) excepted above wiMusatorroTt Central) Brave men of Liechtenstein become Europe's top fools VADUZ, Liechtenstein (AP) - The men of Liechtenstein became "the top fools in Europe" Sunday by again denying women the vote, an official lamented. But a promoter of the tiny duchy's tourist industry took a different view: "People expect us to be different. This vote might even improve business." Seventy per cent of the 5,000 eligible males voted in a referendum Sunday, casting 1,897 ballots against and 1,817 for women's suffrage. Liechtenstein thereby remained the last European nation still without women voters and one of five in the world. The others are Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Yemen. Europe's other holdout, Liechtenstein's western neighbor Switzerland, brought women into the electorate Feb. 7 by a substantial majority. Disgusted young women carried signs reading "We are ashamed of Liechtenstein" and "What's Happened to your manhood?" on the streets of Vaduz and other communities after the result was announced. Women outnumber men in the tiny monarchy of 21,300 between Switzerland and Austria. Its major industries are tourists, false teeth, postage stamps and providing a tax haven for numerous foreign companies, A GOOD YEAR EDMONTON (CP) - The Alberta Crop Insurance Corporation says 1970 was a good year for most grain crops in the province with losses totalling about $1 million compared with $6.5 million in 1969 and $5.5 million in 1968. In 1970 a total of 12,561 Alberta farmers participated in the crop insurance program. fTop of world? their goal KATMANDU, Nepal (AP) -An international team of mountaineers advanced today along the first leg of itis trek to the to of the world. The climbers hope to reach the summit via the unconquered southwest face at Mount Everest in 11 weeks. The expedition left Katmandu Sunday, beginning a 200-mile march to 29,028-foot Everest. The mountaineers spent the night in the village of Thulo Pakhw. The 30 mountaineers who set out from Katmandu are from 12 countries, including Britain and the United States. The group's 52-year-old Swiss-American leader, Norman Dyhrenfurth, calls the expedition "an experiment in human relations, understanding and co-operation." He expressed confidence the team would reach the summit by the unconquered southwest face, an almost vertical route made especially hazardous by continuous avalanches and rock falls. Dhyrenfurth, who led the successful 1963 American expedition up Everest via the slightly less difficult west ridge, said the plan was to put as many persons as possible on the summit-at least one from each country represented. The final assault on the summit is scheduled to begin April 12 and end about May 21. The expedition is being filmed by the British Broadcasting Corp., which is sponsoring the $275,000 expedition witih the Sunday Times of London. Cig ads banned SINGAPORE (Reuter) - A total ban on all advertisements relating to smoking on television, radio, newspapers, magazines, billboards and neon signs came into effect Monday. Foreign magazines imported into Singapore are exempt from the legislation, part of the government's extensive anti-smoking campaign. Every year, 6,000 Canadian women develop breast cancer.
