Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - TH� LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Thursday, March 4, 1971 Army admits spying WASHINGTON (Reuter) -The U.S. Army publicly admitted here that it had compiled intelligence dossiers on public figures, including U.S. Senator Adlai Stevenson in (Dem. 111). It also said it sent investigative agents to the Democratic and Republican party conventions in 1968. The information was given to a congressional committee by Assistant Defence Secretary Robert F. Froehlke, who specifically named Stevenson, oldest son of the late ambassador to the United Nations and former Democratic presidential candidate. Testifying before the Senate subcommittee on constitutional rights, Froehlke said the records compiled by army intelligence have been destroyed and tough new regulation imposed against army surveillance of civilians. Froehlke said that because the files were destroyed it is not possible now to know the scope of information collecting that had been made on holders of public office and political candidates. He was called to testify following disclosures in recent months by former army intelligence agents that spying on civilians had been widespread in the 1960s. Top Canadian artist is dead TORONTO (CP) - William Frederick George Godfrey, 87, one of Canada's best known artists, died after a brief illness. Although his main career was as an architect, his paintings, etchings and wood carvings bang in the National Galler^ in Ottawa and other galleries across the country. Born in London, he came to Canada in 1910 and was an architect with Canadian National Railways for 40 years. After his retirement from the CNR, he was hired to help design subway stations in Toronto. He is survived by his wife Marjorie and daughters Muriel and Thelma. NO HOUSE CALLS - Nicky Fletcher watches a teleprinter turn out a report based oro information given to the computer in the background by a patient. Ontario's first automated medical centre-Medicomp Data Centre-can learn more about a patient in one visit than a doctor could determine in two days of conventional methods. Man can't be sent to jail for failure to pay fine WASHINGTON (Reuter) -The U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously yesterday that a man may not be sent to jail simply because he is unable to pay a fine. The case concerned Preston A. Tate, a Houston father of two, who was sent to jail to work off $425 in traffic fines. Tate said he had a weekly income of $60 or less, plus $104 dollars in monthly benefits as an ex-soldier, and could not possibly pay. Operating tinder a Texas law, the judge sent him to jal for 85 days;-working off the fine at $5 a day. Justice William J. Brennan, who wrote the Supreme Court judgment, said that jailing the man who cannot pay his fine merely adds to his troubles and "saddles the state with the cost of feeding and housing him for the period of his imprisonment." The court urged states to copy the systems used in a few states that provide alternative means for indigents to meet fines. Several states permit payment of fines on an instalment plan. In another ruling, the court decided that poverty should not stop a person from getting a divorce. In the decision, which could help millions of people now locked in unhappy marriages, the court said a person cannot be barred from starting proceedings simply because of inability to pay filing fees. It said that to deny the poor the right to file because of lack of money effectively barred them from any opportunity for a divorce at all and thus violated the equal-protection clause of the constitution. Woo�co ^CUTBACK Canada may lose N-plant deal By KEN KELLY Canadian Press Science Writer OTTAWA (CP) - Canada appears in danger of losing to Britain in competition to supply the Australian government with their first nuclear power plant. Reports from Sydney say the Australian Atomic Energy Commission has recommended the British rector, fuelled with enriched uranium, be selected over the Canadian plant which uses natural uranium fuel. Such a decision by the Australian cabinet, expected, in a matter of weeks, would be a bit-tor blow to Atomic Energy of nada Ltd., which has spent nearly $500,000 preparing bids against eight competitors. Only the Canadian and one of two British bids survived to the final stages. The Canadian offer was good until Jan. 31 and was extended to Feb. 28 at the request of the Australian government. Then came the Sydney reports containing what informants here regard as significant de- tails of the lengthy negotiations. Much also was being read into AECL closing its Australian office and the imminent return home of Ian Mackay, the company's senior technical representative. However Lome Gray, AECL president, says Mr. Mackay was scheduled to return home at this time anyway because the sales job on .the Australian project ended with the recommendation of the Australian commission. SUFFER SETBACKS The failure of the Australian government to request a further renewal of the Canadian bid beyond the Feb. 28 expiry date is regarded as a bad omen for the AECL, which has suffered a series of disappointments since becoming the sole foreign marketing agent {or the Canadian-type nuclear power plants. The company came close at least once before-when Romania in effect eliminated all but an AECL bid and then broke off negotiations. AECL also bid on a Mexican nuclear power station but was hot generally regarded as still in the running when the Mexican government decided not to go ahead after all. Before AECL got into the foreign reactor sales business, Ca- Accountant wins on first ballot EDMONTON (CP) - Gordon Miniely, a 31-year-old chartered accountant, defeated a city alderman and a Catholic school board trustee on the first ballot for the provincial Progressive Conservative nomination in Edmonton Centre. Mr. Miniely received 404 votes compared with 174 for Aid. Dave Ward and 146 for trustee Bob Neville. The nomination completes the Conservative slate in Edmonton for the next provincial election. The Social Credit party still has six city seats for which to select candidates. nadian General Electric lost to West Germany in a competition to supply a reactor for Argentina. CGE also experienced disappointment when Finland failed to reach any decision on a number of reactor bids. After that, foreign sales became the sole responsibility of the Crown corporation which until then had been fully occupied with domestic business for Ontario Hydro and Hydro Quebec. The British bidders for the Australian contract are reported to have offered the valuable uranium enrichment technology jointly owned by Britain, the Netherlands and West Germany, v It involves techniques that enable production of the enriched product without heavy capital and other expenditures involved in the enrichment process used by the United States.
