FftEE 1 i 1 Ends 29 years of hiding Japanese officer shows his sword War ends 29 years late for stubborn soldier MANILA (AP) Hiroo Dnoda, a Second World War Japanese army officer who lid in the Philippine jungles for 29 years, presented his sword in surrender to President Ferdinand Marcos today. In a televised ceremony at the presidential palace, Marcos gave the 52-year-old Japanese a 'full presidential pardon "for any claims or responsibilities during the war" and in the years since. The president told Onoda he was welcome to stay in the country. However, plans were being .made to fly Onoda to Tokyo Tuesday for a medical checkup. Marcos also returned the sword to Onoda, who wore his old Imperial Army uniform. Onoda, facing television cameras for the first time in his life, said: "From now on, I will try my best to contribute to the development of my country and the closer co- operation of the Philippines and Japan." A helicopter brought the for-- mer Japanese intelligence officer to the presidential palace from Lubang island, 75 miles southwest of Manila, where he surrendered Sunday to his former commanding officer, Yoshimi Tamguchi, and the Philippine air force chief, Maj.-Gen.

Dr. Onoda and Philippine air force doctors examined Onoda and found him physically fit. Dr. Onoda said his brother apparently had been sick only twice, with the flu. in his years in the wilderness. Onoda was one of four Japa- nese soldiers who refused to surrender on Lubang when Ja- pan capitulated in 1945. Several searches were made Ethiopian reform has way of dying From REUTER-AP ADDIS ABABA (CP) Ethiopian riot police stormed the university campus here today and used tear gas to disperse a crowd of about 1.000 students who had gathered for an anti- government demonstration. The demonstrators burned an effigy of Premier Endalkachew Makonnen and chanted "Down with Endalkachew." "Give us free speech and and with U.S. imperialism" before the police forced them to flee. The demonstrations today followed a two-week upheaval that observers said has given Ethiopians the tools to transform their feudal state into a democracy, if they want But despite major gains by the reformers, many observers question whether Emperor Haile Selassie's kingdom is ready to shake off the traditions that have built up during 2.500 years. These reformist tendencies have a way of one long-time Western resident said. 12 in one family die in Dublin blaze DUBLIN (AP) A news- stand operator, his pregnant wife and 10 of their 13 children were burned to death in a fire that destroyed their Dublin home early today.

Howard ran a newsstand at the Dalkey rail- way station. The children who died ranged in age from one year to 19. Neighbors said they were awakened by screams from the burning two-storey house and saw some of the family trying to escape. Neighbors tried to get into the house, but the smoke, flames and intense heat drove them back. Florence Kelly said she heard Mrs. Howard screaming for help from the bedroom.

Soviet exile 6no problem' MOSCOW (AP) Communist party chief Leonid Brezhnev said Sunday that exiled Soviet author Alexander Solzhenitsyn cannot "be allowed to slow" international co-operation and relaxation of tensions. It was his first public com- ment on the Nobel laureate, who was stripped of his Soviet citizenship and expelled last month after weeks of attacks on his new book about Stalinist labor camps. Gulag Archipelago. Solzhenitsyn now is staying with his lawyer in Zurich. Switzerland. Brezhnev was questioned by a group of French correspondents who met with the party general secretary two days before his meeting with French President Georges Pompidou. Brezhnev expressed regret at what he said are certain articles in the French press -which do not conform to Soviet reality." adding that at times there is an "anti-Soviet campaign" which does not correspond to the principles of co-operation agreed to by France and the Soviet Union. Asked whether he was referring to the Solzhenitsyn case. Brezhnev replied: "No I wasn't. Besides this rase, a great number of prob- lems have been presented in a way which is not very objec- live. They have no relationship with Solzhenitsyn. Besides, I don't think thai Solzhenitsyn atone could represent the policies of an entire state. "No Solzhenitsyn can be allowed to slow cooperation or detente. Solzhenitsyn is not a problem." In an hour's conversation with the correspondents, Brezhnev replied to a wide range of questions, largely reiterating well-known Soviet positions. Serious drought predicted for American 'breadbasket9 WASHINGTON (Reuter) The Great Plains region of the United States, the country's breadbasket, is due for a drought and probably a serious one either this spring or next, a weather scientist speculated. Dr. Walter Roberts, former director of the National Centre for Atmospheric Research, near Boulder, Colo., says in the current issue of the magazine U.S. News and World Report the drought could last from three to eight years. He says the pasthistoryof the region, the first 600 or 800 miles east of the Rockies, shows something like eight suc- cessive serious dry periods spaced about 20 to 23 years apart. "We don't know why this has happened. But when I see a repetition that has been carried on for that many cycles, I always suspect there must be some fundamental cause for Roberts adds. "Therefore, I personally am watching very intently for a drought in the mid-1970s in the high plains." NDP delegates favor land control system EDMONTON (CP) Control of Alberta's land resource and aid to Indian and Metis people emerged from this weekend's Alberta New Democratic Party convention as "the issues of the next Party Leader Grant Notley said Sunday. While most of the nation's political attention is focused on energy, the NDP which holds just one seat in the 75- seat Alberta legislature turned its course toward a system of land control. Mr. Notley said his party will emerge from the next provincial election, which he said he expects in 1975, as the official opposition in the face of "the obvious decay of Social Credit." He said energy will decline as a provincial issue by 1975 because "hopefully some accord will have been reached for Alberta and Saskatchewan crude oil prices. If not, our country will be in deep trouble." The party leader, MLA for Spirit River-Fairview, said while Alberta has abundant farm land compared with British Columbia, farm land is being wasted by urban development north and west of Edmonton and north of Calgary. "The land south and east of Edmonton would seem to be more desirable for homes from a topographic standpoint, and certainly that land is not as suited to agriculture as the land now being developed." B.C. experienced a "great backlash" over its land control legislation because "they tended to move a little too quickly." A rural affairs resolution, given unanimous approval, proposes to zone all land in the province "according to its productive capacity as agricultural, residential, recreational, industrial and forest reserve areas." It also would follow B.C.'s lead and buy farm land from retiring farmers or "any farm land available on the narket." The land would be leased to farmers, with first option to lease given to the relatives of the retiring fanner who want to continue farm operations. Mr. Notley said the party's willingness to create a committee to consider land administration indicates it's "sincere interest in land control." He said the party was "looking beyond energy" as a primary election issue. What party organizers conceded was a potentially embarrassing showdown Reports offer hopes for balloonist LONDON (AP) Two ships have reported sighting large drifting objects in the Atlantic Ocean off the Liberian coast that might be the gondola of missing American balloonist Thomas Gatch. Lloyds reported Sunday. A spokesman for the shipping register said the British freighter Anlilochus radioed last Thursday that it spotted a "large while buoy" drifting about 150 miles southwest of the Liberian roast. Two days later, the Indian (freighter Jag Vijay reported it sighted a "while and orange object" about 50 miles south of the other sighting. The 48-year-old American has been missing since Feb 21 on his attempted crossing of Ibe orean from the U.S. in his balloon Light Heart. Galen's family has offered through Lloyds a reward for information leading to finding the missing adventurer. between supporters of complete nationalization of energy industries and those favoring public control over new energy sources was avoided Sunday by a compromise resolution. A provision urging repatriation of all private interests in energy resource development was inserted into a resolution dealing with development of the Athabasca oil sands. Howard Leeson, energy committee chairman, told the convention it was hammered out at a special committee meeting Saturday following a stormy committee discussion Friday. At that panel, delegates described the committee as "chicken" and said it had "sold out" by not including any mention of nationalization. Mr. Notley said the party still adheres to public ownership of energy resources but that it would be "impractical" to invest billions of dollars nationalizing "an industry that is winding down." "To most of us it makes more sense to have a marketing board that would accomplish the same things as nationalization without having to resort to such he said. Many delegates said the party's suggested marketing board would look similar to the board established by Conservative Premier Peter Lougheed. Mr. Notley said "let everyone understand there will be little similarity between Lougheed's board and an NDP board." The convention also adopted detailed resolutions dealing with Indian and Metis problems, including a resolution promising the .abolition of all provincial taxes for Indians and Metis if the NDP succeeds in forming a government. Another resolution said an NDP government would provide funds for Metis housing, and that the government would work with the Metis association to develop housing programs. Nancy Eng, party president and chairman of the Indian affairs panel, said a resolution calling on developers of resource industries to actively recruit and train Indians is "practically an emergency matter." She said the resolution was essential because it called on private and government operations in .the Athabasca oil sands to establish intensive training programs for native residents. Mrs. Eng, with Mr. Notley won re-election as party leader by acclamation. Few resolutions dealing with traditional labor issues were discussed. Only one dealing with interference in union organizing and discrimination against workers who have union was joined a presented. Adopted unanimously by the delegates, it would provide fines up to for employers who fire workers because they have joined a union. Amnesty urged on Congress WASHINGTON (AP) Former army secretary Robert Froehlke said today that since President Nixon won't grant amnesty to Vietnam war draft evaders, the United States Congress should if it legally can. Froehlke was interviewed on the CBS Morning News before his scheduled appearance before a House of representatives judiciary subcommittee conducting hearings on legislating amnesty. Froehlke was President Nixon's army secretary from 1971 until last spring. He said there should be no question that men who evaded the draft and fled the U.S. made a mistake but said the country should be big enough to let them corne home. He said they should be re- quired to serve in some form of public service in return for amnesty but this in no way should be punishment. Once they come home, he said, "they are going to con- tinue to be punished for the rest of their lives." Ugandan's body found in Nile KAMPALA (AP) The body of the foreign minister President Idi Amin of Uganda fired last month was recovered from the Nile River during the weekend. The Kampala newspaper Nation says his death "raised a sense of profound fear in every citizen." "The question now in most minds is 'What about the or- dinary the paper says. The government radio an- 'nounced that the former minister. Lt.-Col. Michael Ondoga. would be buried today. But the announcement did not say what the autopsy Amin ordered found about the cause of death. Ondoga disappeared last Thursday. Ondoga. a former ambassa- dor to the Soviet Union, was replaced as foreign minister by Elizabeth Bagaya. the former Princess Elizabeth of Toro.
