Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THI IITNUIDOI HIRAID - Tunclay, March 29, 1971 Shafted charge denied OTTAWA (CP) - The House of Commons refused to sanction a West Coast trip by one of its committees because of a "general consensus" among MPs, a spokesman for governent House Leader Allan MacEachen said Monday. "There was no plot or plan," said the spokesman in commenting on reports Friday quoting David Anderson (L-Esqui-malt-Saanich), chairman of the environmental affairs committee, as saying he had been "shafted" by the government establishment. A motion that would have allowed the committee to hold hearings on the West Coast was shelved by the House Thursday on an opposition motion, which the government could have defeated but didn't. The West Coast hearings were planned to gather expert evidence on the proposed U.S. tanker route from Alaska to northern Washington, along the British Columbia coast. Mr. Anderson is an outspoken critic of the pollution dangers of such a tanker route. TAKEN OFF COMMITTEE Another claim by Mr. Anderson, that he had been removed from a Canada-U.S. inter-parliamentary committee because of his criticism of the oil transport plan, was described by Lloyd Francis, government whip, as "nonsense." But the whip confirmed Mr. Anderson's removal. Mr. Francis (L-Ottawa West) said Mr. Anderson was removed from the inter-pariia-nientary committee because of an episode two weeks ago when the House was discussing a Mackenzie Valley pipeline-proposed as an alternative to the coastal route for moving Alaska oil. "He has no idea what it is to play on a team." Mr. Anderson's place will be taken by another British Columbia MP, said the whip. Hara-Kiri goes on trial TOKYO (Reuter) - Hara-Kiri, the centuries-old Japanese suicide-ritual, goes on trial here Tuesday in a bizarre court case that will challenge much of post-Second World War Japan's life and philosophy. The case involves three students who helped prominent Japanese author Yukio Mish-ima commit suicide last fall. The right-wing author decided to Mil himself Nov. 25 when he was jeered after asking Japanese soldiers here to overthrow the post-war constitution and restore emperor worship. In the prescribed feudal ritual of the Samurai warriors, Mishima slashed' open his abdomen with a sword. His young assistant, Masakatsu Morita, following the bushido, or warrior code of conduct, administered the coup de grace by beheading him. Morita then followed his leader into death and was beheaded by one of the three youths on trial. The principal charge against the three is killing by request, the first time the time-honored bushido act has been tried under the criminal code. Conviction could mean up to seven years imprisonment for the three, all Tokyo students. They are Hiroyasu Koga, 23; MasayosM Koga, 22, and Ma-sahiro Ogawa, 22. The three students belonged to Mishima's now-disbanded private army, the Tateookai (Society of the Shield), who were pledged to defend the nation against left-wing incursions and keep alive the warrior philosophy. They have not denied their guilt and said they were intent only on carrying out Mishima's instructions to propagate his philosophy and justify his death. The trial, with hearings only once or twice a month, is expected to drag on for more than a year as many of the brilliant author's novels and plays will be introduced by the defence as evidence. The government's main objective is to discredit the Mishima philosophy before it has a chance to take hold in other receptive minds and revive fears overseas that Japan is once again heading down a militaristic road.

Police obstructed by Commission CALGARY (CP) - City police have been obstructed during the last year by the Calgary Police Commission, Mr. Justice W. G. Morrow said Monday. His finding came in an interim report on a public inquiry he conducted last fall into civic management. "The recital of evidence .. . convinced me . . . there has been interference or obstruction of the Calgary police force through the operation of the police commission." CARRIED AWAY The interference was (he result of "elected representatives being carried away by the urge and desire to show ... they are alert to prevent abuse by the police. . . ." "No doubt, Mayor (Rod) Sykes and some of the other commission members are earnest in their desire to see justice done and to see they run a good police commission." The Northwest Territories judge said the commission must take care its actions do not discredit police or frustate them to the point they cease to care for society. He recommended the commission do away with public hearings to deal with matters of police discipline or charges of brutality. In cases where public hearings were held anyway, he suggested guidelines to ensure both the complainant and the accused are treated fairly. A citizen advisory body to the police commission was dimiss-ed as of "doubtful value." The police commission, consisting now of sue members, should be reduced to three or at most five members with elected officials in a minority. The mayor and three aldermen along with a citizien-at-large and a representative'of the legal community now sit on the commission. The province, rather than the city, should appoint the citi-zens-at-large and one should be a woman. AGITATORS AT WORK "Today there are 'cells' of persons, even in Calgary, who as professed agitators are determined to upset society by other than constitutional means. "Public hearings (on police discipline) with resultant press converage where police are and can be charged play right into their hands. "Even where police might be cleared or completely exonerated some irreparable damage to the force's reputation may result." Justice Morrow released his report on the police commission early to assist the provincial government which has drafted legislation to establish a provincial police commission. One of Justice Morrow's rec- ommendations was there be no changes in the Calgary commission until his report and the one used as the basis for the provincial legislation has been fully studied. The rest of his report concerning theft from city departments, security arrangements and administrative procedures In the city is to be released later. The public inquiry was requested last spring by Mayor Rod Sykes to dispel rumors of mismanagement and extensive thefts which circulated after two men were convicted of stealing from the transit system. Healing Substance... ShrinksPiles, Checksltch Exclusive healing substance proven to shrink hemorrhoids... and repair damaged tissue. A renowned research institute has found a unique healing substance with the ability to shrink hemorrhoids painlessly. It relieves itching and discomfort in minutes and speeds up healing of the injured, inflamed tissues. One hemorrhoidal case history after another reported "very striking improvement." Pain was promptly and gently relieved... actual reduction or retraction (shrinking) tookplace. And most important-this improvement was maintained in cases where clinical observations were continued over a period of many months. Furthermore, these tests and observation's were made on patients with a wide variety of hemorrhoidal conditions. All this was accomplished with a healing substance (Bio* Dyne) which quickly helps heal injured cells and stimulates growth of new tissue. Bio-Dyne is offered in ointment and ouppOsi* tory form called Preparation H. In addition to actually shrinking hemorrhoids, Preparation H lubricates and makes eliminai tion less painful. It helps prevent infection which is a stated cause of hemorrhoids. Just ask your druggist for Preparation H Suppositories or Preparation H Ointment (with a special applicator). .
