Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, March 10,1971 - THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD - 28 Vice president Spiro T. Agnew says that as things now stand the Nixon administration will not approve of a South Vietnamese invasion of North Vietnam. "We may not be willing to offer the kind of support we ere giving the South Viet* namese in Laos and Cambodia on any incursion into North Vietnam," he told a news conference in New Orleans. "And the reason I say 'may not' is that I cannot really look into the future and foresee the conditions under which a military operation might take place." Agnew emphasized that nothing be said on Vietnam should be construed as fore-closing any of President Nixon's options. Agnew spoke a few hours after State Secretary William� Rogers told a group in Washington that the U.S. sees no reason why South Vietnamese military forces should be restricted in their operations into Laos and Cambodia.  *  Multi-millionaire Huntington Hartford is selling off most of his art collection. He claims be needs the money. "I have the same problem a lot of wealthy people do," be said, "a cash problem. "We've all been hit by the recession. We could all use a little extra cash these days." Hartford, heir to the A. and P. supermarket fortune, dislikes most abstract, pop and other modern art forms. In 1964, he had built the white marble Gallery of Modem Art at Columbus Circle in New York to display his choice of pictures.    Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of New York says that if President Nixon steps aside in 1972 be may seek the Republican presidential nomination himself. An interviewer asked Rockefeller "Suppose that President Nixon, for whatever reason, decided not to run again, would you be interested?" "What I've said there is that would be another ball game," said the governor. "You're not, ruling out the possibility?" "That's right." SPIRO AGNEW ... No Invasion Charles Yost, formerly President Nixon's ambassador to the United Nations, favors setting a date "within the next year or year and a half" for the conditional withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Vietnam. He also favors bringing Communist China into the United Nations "in the near future" without "any conditions." And he expects the indirect peace talks between Egypt and Israel at UN headquarters to go on even without a declared extension of the ceasefire. He also thinks Israel ought to commit itself to withdraw from all Egyptian territory. � *  Eldridge Cleaver, self-exiled information minister of the Black Panther party, said in Algiers that Hney Newton and David Miliary have been expelled as party chieftains. In a statement issued at his headquarters, Cleaver said Hil-liard's wife June and "all those who followed Newton's revisionist line" also have been expelled. The statement was the latest move in the split between rival factions of the Panther movement. Newton announced from his California h e a dquarters recently that Cleaver and other members of the Algiers exile group had been cttsted from the party for opposing Newton's leadership. Man gunned down in Irish fuss BELFAST (AP) - A young man was gunned down on the edge of the Roman Catholic Bal-lymurphy housing estate Tuesday and police said he was apparently another victim in the mounting feud between rival elements of the outlawed Irish Republican Army. A British army spokesman described the shooting as an internal IRA matter. Detectives spread a wide net around Belfast today in search of gunmen who killed one man and wounded two others Monday night. Police visited several taverns in the Roman Catholic area where the violence erupted. First information laid the blame Probe bank charges increase OTTAWA (CP) - The prices and incomes commission will make a preliminary study of 33-per-cent increases in chequing charges announced recently by the chartered banks, Consumer Affairs Minister Ron B a s f o r d told the Commons Tuesday. He did not know when the commission would produce its report, he said in reply to Max Saltsman (NDP-Waterloo). Mr. Saltsman asked whether Mr. Basford would ask the banks to delay the increases until the commission makes its report. Mr. Basford replied that such a request would be "more effective" coming from Finance Minister Edgar Benson, who was not in the Commons. The commission's usual practice is to make a preliminary study to determine whether a price increase calls for a detailed study. on IRA Provisionals. This is a splinter wing which currently is locked in conflict with the regular IRA hard core. Although both are working for a united Ireland, under Catholic Dublin, the Provisionals think the main body treads too softly. The man who died Monday night, identified as Charles Hughes, was shot down only 100 yards from his home in the embattled Falls Road sector. The volley knocked over Anthony Kerr and Paul McMenamin, both of Belfast, and they now are in hospital. Kerr's condition was described as serious. In London, The Daily Mirror, quoting Scotland Yard sources, said British police sent here to investigate the IRA, have established at least 29 assassinations of Irishmen suspected of being traitorous to the republican cause. Belfast sources agreed and listed Monday night's killing as being in that category, making the total 30. Troops and constabulary threw a cordon around both the embroiled Catholic sector of Belfast and around the city's approaches as well in a drive to root out gunmen and arms caches CHOLERA REPORTED NAIROBI (AP) - Kenyan authorities sealed off the Tana river district in coast province after reports of cholera in the area. Federal action urged to curb plane hijacking MONTREAL (CP) - The Canadian Airline Pilots Association called today for immediate federal action to curb cases of hijacking, especially in cases in which Canada is the destination. The association made the request in telegrams to Justice Minister Turner and External Affairs Minister Sharp. It expressed its "grave concern over recent incidents of highjacking having Canada as the hijacker's destination." The association said that in spite of government "statements and promises," hijacking is still not a crime under the Criminal Code. Canada also had not signed an international agreement to suppress the seizure of aircraft. HOUSEWARES PRICE SHOWDOWN Wipe�Clean Vinyl iff. ..."
