2 - THE lETHBRrOOE HERAID - Wednesdoy, March 24, 1971 Separatist party won't relinquish MONTREAL (CP) - Rene Levesque, Parti Quebecois leader said Tuesday any idea he had about relinquishing his leadership was changed because of the way the federal government stepped into the October kidnapping crisis. In an interview on the syndicated Pierre Berton television show, Mr. Levesque said he had made up his mind last autumn to step down, but added: "You know what changed my mind basically?" "It was a feeling more than anything else, it was when those guys in Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec - Drapeau, Mar-cband, Trudeau, ail the guys from our family ~ started clamping down on Quebec and using the whole Laporte-CJross thing as an opportunity to clamp down. "I felt so bloody disgusted and I felt mad. That's what made my mind up for me." He was referring to the events surrotmding the invoking of the War Measures Act Oct. 16 to combat the terrorist Front de Libei-ation du Quebec. The FLQ claimed responsibility for the Oct. 5 abduction of British envoy James Cross and the Oct. 10 abduction of Quebec Labor Minister Pierre La-porte. Mr. Laporte was murdered Oct. 17 and Mr. Cross was released xmharmed Dec. 4. FEEL DUPED Mr. Levesque said many Quebecers are realizing they are taken in by the "incredibly devious, dishonest attempt" carried out by Mr. Trudeau and Mr. Drapeau at the time and the government of Premier Bourassa of Quebec staged a "cave-in," Mr. Levesque said. These men unleashed all their "barking dogs" in an attempt to tie the Parti Que-becois to the terrorists who kidnapped, and later released, British envoy James Cross and also seized and murdered Pierre Laporte, the Quebec labor minister. "They tried to tie up PQ-FLQ," Mr. Levesque said, referring to the initials of his po- CARPET and UNO (Complete Installations!) Free Estimates! No Obligation!

The recommendation was made In a brief by four members of the Edmonton Branch of the Committee for an Independent Canada, presented by Barry Kirkham. "Citizenship is ah-eady a requirement to run for political office and to vote in this country. If we give political power only to Canadian citizens, then surely it follows that our minds and our culture should be guarded by universities in which Canadian citizens are predominant." The brief also recommended appointment of foreign professors should be prohibited unless it can be shown that there is no qualified Canadian avaU-able. The seven-member, government-appointed committee is holding four days of hearings in Edmonton this week. Committee Chairman Arnold Moir, an Edmonton lawyer, and the members held hearings in Calgary and Lethbridge earlier this month. The committee was appointed in January. During its hearings in the southern part of the province, it was accused of being a witchrhuit. Mr. Moir stressed at the opening of Tuesday's hearings that the committee merely is lookmg into allegations nad collectmg data on whether there is or is not a non-Canadian influence - and if there is if it is good or bad. leader post tlons of civil liberties and mass arrests under the special anti-ten-orist legislation. He specifically mentioned MP David Lewis, deputy leader of the New Democratic Party, who he said was described by many in Quebec as a "goddainn Jew" because of his opposition to the emergency measures. Such men now were bdng proved right and Mr. Lewis had been shown to be "an honorable man." Americans visiting Quebec during that period had said "we killed a president in Dallas" but nevertheless no changes in laws governing U.S. dvil liberties had been made. Sierra Leone commander arrested FREETOWN (AP) - Senior Sierra Leone army officers arrested their commander Tuesday night hours after he announced seizing powier from Prime Minister Siaka P. Stevens. They told the people they intend to keep Stevens in office. Brig. John BanganA, army commander of the diamond-rich West African country, said he deposed Stevens in a dawn gun battle outside the prime minister's home. He warned in a nationwide radio broadcast against any outside interference. But the army's third in command, Lt.-Col.

His whereabouts were not known, but reliable army sources had said earlier he was in protective custody.
