Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 'HE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, March 4, 1571 Army admits spying WASHINGTON (Renter) The U.S. Army publicly admit- ted here that it had compiled intelligence dossiers on public figures, including US. Senator Adlai Stevenson HI (Dem. H also suid it sent investiga- tive agents to the Democratic and Rprviiuhcan party conven- tions in 1963. The information was given to a congressional committee by Assistant Defence Secretary Robert F. Frochlke, who speci- fically named Stevenson, old- est son of the late ambassador to the United Nations and for- mer Democratic presidential candidaie. Testifying before the Senate subcommittee on constitutional rights, F r o e h 1 k e said the records compiled by army in- telligence have been destroyed and tough new regulation im- posed against army surveil- lance of civilians. Froehlke said that because the files were destroyed it is not possible now to know the scope of information collecting thai had been made on holders of public office and political candidates. He was called to testify fol- lowing disclosures in recent months by former army intelli- gence 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 art- ists, died after a brief illness. Although his main career was as an architect, his paintings, etchings and wood carvings hang in the National Gallery in Ottawa and other galleries across the country. Born in London, he came to Canada in 1910 and was an ar- chitect with Canadian National Railways for 40 years. After his retirement from the CNB, he was hired to help design subway stations in Toronto. He is survived by Ms wife Marjorie and daughters Muriel and Thelma.

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. Tale, a Houston father of hvo, who was sent to jail to work off in traffic fines. Tate said he had a weekly in- come of or less, plus dollars in monthly benefits as an ex-soldier, and could not pos- sibly pay. Operating under a Texas law, the judge sent him to jal for 85 off the fine at a day. Justice William J who wrote the Supreme Court judgment, said that jailing the I 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 imprison- ment." 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 pay- ment of fines on an instalment plan. In another ruling, the court decided that poverty should not stop a person from getting a di- vorce. In the decision, which could help millions of people now locked in unhappy marriages, the court said a person cannot be barred from starting pro- ceedings simply because of ina- bility 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 vio- lated the equal-protection clause of the constitution.

Reports from Sydney say the Australian Atomic Energy Com- mission has recommended the British rector, fuelled with en- riched uranium, be selected the Canadian plant which uses natural uranium fuel. Such a decision by the Aus- tralian cabinet, expected to a matter of weeks, would be a bit- ter blow to Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., which has spent nearly 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 re- quest of the Australian govern- ment. 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 off- ice and the imminent return home of Ian Mackay, the com- pany's senior technical repre- sentative. 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 be- yond the Feb. 23 expiry date is regarded as a bad omen for the AECL, which has suffered a series of disappointments since becoming the sole foreign mar- keting agent (or the Canadian- type nuclear power plants. The company came close at least once Ro- mania in effect eliminated all but an AECL bid and then broke off negotiations. AECL also bid on a Mexican nuclear power station but was not generally regarded as still in the running when the Mexi- can government decided not to go ahead after all. Before AECL got into the for- eign reactor sales business, Ca- Accountant wins on first ballot EDMONTON (CP) Gordon Miniely, a 31-year-old chartered accountant, defeated a city al- derman and a Catholic school board trustee on the first bal- lot for the provincial Progres- sive 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 Ed- monton for the next provincial election. The Social Credit par- ty 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 Argen- tina. CGE also experienced dis- appointment when Finland failed to reach any decision on a nunrber of reactor bids. After that, foreign sales be- came the sole responsibility of the Crown corporation which until then had been fully occu- pied with domestic business for Ontario Hydro and Hydro Quebec. The British bidders for Hie Australian contractarere- ported to have offered the valu- able uranium enrichment tech- r.clogy jointly owned by Britain, the Netherlands and West Ger- many.
