Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ask me... By RIC SWIHART I wonder many people objected to the pic- ture the slain hijackers on the Irani page of this publication Jan. 27. 1C there was one, thai is loo many. The crime hijacking was reaching epidemic proportions in the U.S. until President Nixon im- posed severe penalties. This has since lost ness, ami ilic incidence hijackings lias returned to normal. But with Canada "coming of age" in tire books ot the traitorous hijackers, the thought that it could happen, here became a reality. What this country and lor that matter this con- tinent really needs now is a good old-fashioned five- cent vigilante committee. Why should some police officer have to risk his life to catch up with some idiot who would thoughtlessly risk the lives of a com- plete plane load of passengers? Why should anyone have to put up with undue risk? The answer is simple. They don't. If the lawmakers in the affected countries would put teeth where there is now a soother, this type of thing could be stopped. Some people say the hijacker is a sick person. This is just about as ridiculous as the act of hi- jacking. I suppose the act of hijacking is a form of pro- test, but even in a democratic country like Canada, there has to be a limit to what people can go to in reaching an end. The greatest part of the hijacking community probably just wants to get out of the situation they find themselves in. A simple passport and a little money will get any citizen out. But this wouldn't accomplish anything in the way of protest. I say if they want out of the country that bad, let them go. But of late, they seem to want to take huge amounts of that good old green folding stuff with them. 'Hie thought of a brick wall at every airport is not pleasant, and to have a standing troup of men ready to perform as a firing squad is silly, especi- ally from an economic standpoint. But if such a structure would add some fear to a possible hijacker, if it would save hundreds of people from surviving a living hell, it should be considered. It is time to stop letting one per cent of any group dictate to the rest. Face of the City David Julin Hmlliiy, son of Mr. and .Mrs. .1. A. Findlay of 425 Dieppe Blvd. has suc- cessfully RCMP ru- cruil training and will start regular duly in British Co- lumbia.

Friendship Centre seeks businessman for members Prominent Lethbriclge busi- nessmen and citizens are being asked to seek scats on the Na- tive Friendship Centre Society of Southern Alberta board of di- rectors. The society, which governs the Lethbridge Friendship Cen- tre, in encountering difficulty ob- taining response from those "prominent" individuals they have corresponded with. aurent board says a lar- ger cross section of the com- munity should be represented on (he board in order to publi- cize Lbe goals and objectives of die society.
